Hi everyone, new memeber here.

 

I've been looking at your incredible collections and decided to share my own. I live in Argentina, Battle Beasts never made it here, so I've been slowly tracking them down the best I could. Only two more left to complete the set.

 

As for OMFG, I have the first two series (both in tan, series 2 also in black) since I was part of the October toys forum back in the day. 

 

The case is custom made. 

 

Hope you like it!

Hi and welcome to LRG!

 

You´ve been able to built quite an impressive collection for being in Argentina knowing all of your Beasts had to come from different countries who actually did have the BB back in the days. How did you learn about the Battle Beasts because if they´ve never been released there I assume you don´t have any childhood memories about them unlike most collectors?

 

The display you made for them looks really good, hope you´ll be able to fill in the final two gabs to complete the BB set soon.

Good luck with that and...

 

Enjoy the Beasts!

That's true, I don't have nostalgia for this line, in fact I started toy collecting with MOTU and TMNT, lines that were prominent here in my childhood.

 

A few years back I started getting serious about collecting and completing some lines but Battle Beasts were not even in my radar. It was a trade with a friend from the US that got me hooked. He was a MOTU collector and I sent him a couple of Fuerza T toys in exchange for some stuff he had I was interested in, he always packed in some extra stuff in the boxes and along the figures there were a couple of BBs. Something in this figures was incedibly appealing to me and after a little research I decided to track down as many as I could.

 

Five years ago I had most of my collection in storage because I was renovating my house and the place where I was keeping everything was robbed. I lost more than half of what I got. That, paired with harder and harder customs restrictions in my country made me stop collecting alltogether. Luckily, my BBs collection was one of the things that was not in storage and survived. 

 

Last year I moved to a new house and started setting up a couple of displays and regained some of my drive for the hobbie. 

 

Here are some pics of my new displays if you're interested.

Nice, it´s always interesting to hear about other collectors from other countries and how they started collecting.

So it seems like it all started with a few BB that were gifted to you and that´s when the BB virus started spreading, I can relate it all went down hill the moment I found my childhood BB Rabbit in a box with old toys ;)

Nice collection, like the TMNT especially Hot Spot & Scratch. Would they be considered the crown jewels out of your turtles collection?

For sure. There were part of a lot of TMNT figures I found on ebay many years ago. It had several rares I was missing at the moment (those two but also Sandstorm and a couple of the most obscure turtle variants). 

 

It was not cheap, but if you divide the value among each figure (15 total if I recall correctly) it was a steal. Also, I re-sold the ones I already had, so it was even less. 

 

I'm only missing Shogun Shoate to complete the TMNT collection I want.

Awesome stuff, yep I see Sandstorm there too.
Prices for Hot Spot & Scratch have gone through the roof in recent years so you done pretty well getting those 2 figures. To get the accessories for those 2 is pretty insane money too.

I really dig that custom display case in your first post. Did you do that yourself or have it made?

I had it made by a company that does acrylic stands for glasses and store displays. Since I can't get acrylic stands here anywhere I commisioned mine, and the stands for my Dunny and TMNT collections too.

Totally insane. I don't have accesories for these, but I display most of my figures without them anyway.
