My first battle beast in over 30 years!
Posted 20 April 2017 - 04:39 PM
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.

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.
