Here's a Greek Beast archive I started years ago with a member named CCVegita. He dropped off the face of the earth, so the archive is in stasis. I don't collect these figures, so it will stay that way unless/until someone wants to take over.

Enjoy what's there. :)

The awesome artwork is by an old member Scumdogg!

You did a great effort for someone who's not even into collecting these. Think some of us have shown by now that indeed all the figures can be found in all the different colors (Gorilla & Rabbit Masterset) but its quite a puzzle to get that far. And to go all in on them you've to spend a lot of money to built a part stock which'll be needed to trade or eventually complete beasts as perfect completed figs are still hard to come by. There is still a lot of discussion going on concerning the amount of colors but as you showed in the archive as well we started of with 7 colors while Purple has been confirmed as a legitimate later making the total of 8.

Its fun to see that in the artwork even the 'wrong' arms were accepted while most of the GBB collectors today, including myself, try to change parts according to the known figure composition while for most Greeks the arms have never been an issue as most believed they're supposed to be that way. And maybe it was....... but this is a little but part of the mystic around these El Greco figs which makes the puzzle a lot harder to complete ;)

Thanks for noticing this again as I can't remember having bumped into it before.

Well, I certainly would collect them but the cost is prohibitive. I'm say to say I don't even have one in my collection. I certainly will some day.

Just saw a the purple rabbit via your Twiitter stream, gorgeous!

Thanks for kind words.

    BATTLE BEASTS ROCK AND SO DO YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love greek beasts and that photo is great thanks for that. GJ and I spend many hours talking about Greeks there's nothing like completing one and have the arms match up color wise . It's great fun and the more collectors the better as us hardcore boys are all ways looking for more to join the party.
