Hello to all battle beasts fans! I'm excited to be a part of the community you all have here. As a kid, I was way in to G.I. Joe and M.O.T.U. but I do remember having the raccoon beast.
As the years past and I began to collect and customize action figures as an adult, I often thought of battle beasts as an option but never started buying until now. And that decision was greatly influenced by you people. Thank you!
I got my first custom base this week. It's a Double Threat Snake (missing left arm so I call it that) no weapon and the rub works. It was $4.62 shipped. Maybe a bad deal? eBay is not full of good deals as you probably know.
I have an idea for the customization but I need to get 2 arms. A right and a left. But not the Triple Threat Snake arms. The arms don't even need to match. Just a right and a left. I'm not seeing any auctions for just arms and I hate to end up short on arms for another figure so the process is slightly stalled. I thought about modding in arms from a Kreo alien figure but I don't think it's the look I want. If anyone has any ideas, please chime in.
After a long winded explanation and half arsed introduction of myself, let me end by saying I look forward to sharing my future customs with you. Who knows? I may even start collecting for real. But first I have to build up on cheap beasts without weapons or rubs. When I figure out what arms I can use and finish this first custom, I will post it if I can figure out how. Thank you.

Love it Trench!

It's hard getting other figures to match battle beast size/feel. As far as attaching if you do try, I've had a lot of success with magnets. For parts, there are usually some good lots of beasts that can come in at an average of $1-3 per beast (in lots of 5+). Patience helps. Also, knightlightbug has eBay auctions with the ability to buy some mildly worn beasts for $5 a pop, which helps when you need some if specific.

Looking forward to seeing how it turns out! Feel free to PM me if there's anything else I can help with.

I was thinking about the magnets at work a few days ago. After a month,I finally got 50 that I ordered. They arrived the same day as the BB did. I originally got them to mount 1/24 scale model bodies to 1/24 custom rc trucks. They are small enough to easily fall into the shoulder socket. I would share some with others as well.
Thanks for the advice. Now to search ebay for the seller you mentioned. Thanks!

Thanks. I'll think about that. I'm pretty sure I don't want triple threats arms or the color. Price with shipping is also a huge factor.

Thanks for the welcoming replies, guys. I just got the other 2 auction purchases today! One is a scrape faced bull dog and the other is a descent gator, warn walrus and warn giraffe. So far I'm paying about $5 shipped for each. These are for customs so weapons and rubs don't matter much. I would like to find the right bulk auction soon. Patience indeed.
