I've been collecting Battle Beasts seriously for a few years now (its my favorite brand from my childhood) and I'm starting to see the end of the road for what was available in the US.  There are still a few things Im looking for from the US but I know there are many other BB products that were made available elsewhere.  Is there a guide on what was available?  I'm particularly interested in more info on the Greek BB and the many knockoffs.  Thanks for help you can give. :D

You might regret this quote someday once you start looking into the items that have been available outside of the US... ;)

 

Jon (Jkaris) already shared some useful links but sadly enough apart from the original BB line all other versions/releases/knock offs/bootlegs are not very well documented. Bit by bit more of these are added to the Beastformers Blog and if you check out the header OTHERS in the menu you´ll find the sub-menu; Bootlegs & Knock Offs where some of these are documented.

 

Of some of the Bootlegs and Knock Offs shared there I might still have some available.

Personally I haven´t been adding/investing a whole lot to my GBB (Greek BB) collection for quite a while because that´s something that seems to come with waves on my end so can´t help you out a whole lot on those.

 

If you´re interested feel free to reach out and of course you´re always free to ask questions, always happy to help.

 

Enjoy the Beasts!

I'm working on a book for Battle Beasts, but even then it's hard to document everything (as Beastformers said). A lot of stuff may have been lost due to time and low production numbers. I'll be doing my best to represent the toys in a book format :)
