Now that I am getting closer to a set of the first series of Beasts I was thinking about which are my personal favorites and what I thought the more popular figures as a community at large would be. I had them sprawled out and some are far cooler than others.

I'm sure this has been discussed before but all I could find was a thread on the most hated beasts lol. A poll would be cool but seems a bit involved.

My personal favorites all reside in series one; Web Slinging Spider, Rubberneck Giraffe and Blitzkreig Bat. I figure Pirate Lion and King Cobra may be some of the more favored characters.

So what say you? Of the 76 original Beasts which are your favorites? And maybe just as important, what do you think are the most iconic figures of the line are? Which figures do you first think of when you hear 'Battle Beasts'?

My girlfriend is trying to sketch out a group shot but in no way is trying to take on the task of 76 figures.

My all time favorite Battle Beast is the Knight Owl, as he was the only one I owned as a kid that I picked up from a flea market since Beasts were a little before my time.

 

My other favorites are: Horny Toad, Ossified Orangatang, & Manic Mandrill

My favourite battle beasts are: Sawtooth Shark, King Cobra and Hunchback Camel. Also really like Delta Chameleon as I think Chameleons are such cool animals. But there are so many awesome sculpts so it's really hard to choose just two or three of them all.

The only Battle Beast I had growing up was the Walrus. They were released when I was 4 or 5. He wasn't my favorite but it was great to have one. One of my only Transformers was Long Tooth the Pretender also a Walrus.

 

2 of my favorite Battle Beats are the Bear and Black Panther.

Elephant and Frog will always be at the top of my list for nostalgia purposes, those guys went everywhere with me when I was little. Shield Dragon gets my vote for for coolest sculpt.

All time fave would be the Eagle, loved the way he looked and the mold in general.

 

runner ups would be the: water buffalo, tortoise, owl, hawk and the crow. the ones with wings always seemed to stand out more.

Diving Duckbill

I´ve to stick, like some above, to my first ever BB because of the nostalgia that comes with it so....... the Rabbit it is.

 

As for the most Iconic figures within the BB lines (LB excluded) Pirate Lion is definitely #1 in that list as well because he´s the representative of the BB line but with him I think all the first 18 Beasts were probably the most remembered simply because of them and their artwork being the most wide spread (they appeared in the comics). But beside the Rhino and the Lion also the Ram was pretty present on the artwork for the line so think he´s also remembered quite a bit by many kids from the 80´s. Looking into the figs outside the first Series Beasts I don´t think there are any Series 2 or 3 Beasts really jumping into the eye or at least that´s how I feel because most of the advertisement and the initial launch was more focused on the original 1st Series but if I´d to call one the Cobra is an iconic Beast that´s often recognized or remembered from the higher Series of Beasts.

 

But as a fan naming just one Beast as your real favorite is tough.....

Mine is Crow. lots of cultures see the Crow as a symbolism of death or bad omen and he's carrying a scythe which is the Grim Reapers weapon of choice which is the bringer of death.Such a Rad Combo!

The Crow is really great, but he actually might be a Black Bird as Crows are supposed to have black beaks. I have a Black Greek Bird with Black Rabbit arms. He totally looks like a Crow and he hangs out with the yellow beak Crows.

As a kid:
Cutthroat Cuttlefish (or as I called him, "The Squid")
Pirate Lion (the "Bad Guy" leader, in my childhood games) 
Rhino (he was the leader of the "Good Guys" to me) 
Weasel (every kid I knew treated him like he was Wolverine from the X-Men in terms of attitude) 
 
As an adult: 
Cuttlefish (what can I say? He's still awesome) 
Black Panther 
Crooked Crow 
Antic Anteater 
 
(as a kid, I'd never seen the Panther & Crow before, so seeing them as an adult makes them look like some crazy exotic made-up Beasts, not "official" ones :))

I'll post my top 5 in order, I don't know why they are my favourites other then aesthetically.

1:Killer Carp
2:Rubberneck Giraffe
3:Rocky Rhino
4:Prickly Porcupine
5:Web Slinger
Honourable mention to Sly Fox and every Laser Beast. I don't know what it is but something about the Laser Beasts orb just gives me chills about how awesome it was. Everytime I see something that reminds me of it a warm rush of nostalgia runs over me.
