I've recently been collecting a lot of the things I always wanted but couldn't afford as a child, and the memories have come flooding back about how much I loved Battle Beasts and Muscle figs. I know it sounds silly, but my Battle Beasts and Muscle figs getting stolen as a child was one of the most traumatic experiences of my childhood. My family was really poor, so those figs were the accumulated total of many many years of Christmas and birthday presents. My family was so upset with me for allowing them to be stolen that I had tremendous guilt and anguish for years, the memories of which haunt me to this day.

Now that I'm an adult I'd love to A ) punch the guy in the face that stole them and B ) replace them so I can enjoy them with my nephew. If anyone has Battle Beast figs, playsets (I loved the playsets!), or muscle figs they're willing to sell please let me know. Thank you for reading this and be well!

I've recently been collecting a lot of the things I always wanted but couldn't afford as a child, and the memories have come flooding back about how much I loved Battle Beasts and Muscle figs.  I know it sounds silly, but my Battle Beasts and Muscle figs getting stolen as a child was one of the most traumatic experiences of my childhood.  My family was really poor, so those figs were the accumulated total of many many years of Christmas and birthday presents.  My family was so upset with me for allowing them to be stolen that I had tremendous guilt and anguish for years, the memories of which haunt me to this day. 

 

Now that I'm an adult I'd love to A) punch the guy in the face that stole them and B) replace them so I can enjoy them with my nephew.  If anyone has Battle Beast figs, playsets (I loved the playsets!), or muscle figs they're willing to sell please let me know.  Thank you for reading this and be well!    

 

First off, let me finally apologize after all these years.   For what it's worth, I was able to trade those few BBs & Muscle for a pretty huge crack rock.  Also, I'll be stealing your dramatic sentiment for future use; it'll make a great headline:  'EXTRA: LITTLE PINK MUSCLE FIGURES CAUSATION OF CHILDHOOD TRAUMA! HAUNTING ANGUISH & GUILT, GROWN MAN EXCLAIMS!'

 

But seriously, what are you looking for, exactly?  Have you got particularly fond memories of certain beasts/Muscle sculpts, or?

I had about 50 Battle Beasts and several dozen muscle figs, my absolute favorites were the 3 Battle Beast playsets (Beetle, Shark, and Eagle).

I´m backing plan A because steeling someone´s Battle Beasts (BB) is like steeling someone´s childhood and even worse with retro-activity destroying someone´s feeling of nostalgia, horrible......

 

So plan B is a good one, built your own BB Army again and take revenge!!!

Depending on what Beasts it is you´re looking for and what condition you´re after I might be able to help you out with a few just hit me up via PM if you´re interested. Can´t help you out with the Playsets but probably someone else out here can and if not I can ask around for you a bit to help you find them.

 

Good luck recapturing your Childhood and with that building the feeling of nostalgia that the Battle Beasts line still holds!

Got anything to trade?  Rubber monsters/Arco stuff/vinyl kaiju, perhaps?
