REVIEW: Rise of the Beasts

Plastic and Plush - 20 min 57 sec ago
Rise-of-the-Beasts-01

From a time before time, the villains of myth and the heroes of legend have returned to continue a savage battle that will determine the future of humanity.

With barbaric kingdoms, led by power hungry animals in the form of men preparing to conquer the earth, mankind must place it's hope in the lion Thufur Asa'Yid, The Sword of Krix!

As ancient armies equipped with advanced science and technology erupt from underneath the earth all over the world who can stop ..

The Rise Of The Beasts!

The Rise of the Beasts is a new line of 1980’s inspired mini figures in the same vein as Battle Beasts. And like several other contemporary lines that have been influenced by Battle Beasts, these feature Onell Design’s Glyos joints. That means you can switch out all of the parts and pieces with other toy lines that similarly feature the Glyos joints.

Rise-of-the-Beasts-03

To date, there have been two characters released – the African Rhinoceros and the Emperor Scorpion. Depending on the paint and color scheme, the character has a different name. And in addition to painted versions of these two guys, there are also a few unpainted ones that nearly cut the price in half.

Rise-of-the-Beasts-07

Speaking of price, they sell for $7.00 per painted figure and $4.00 per unpainted. I’d probably go the painted route as the added personality you get from one of the painted figures far outweighs the $3.00 extra you’ll need to pony up.

And as you can see, the sculpting details really pop out with the addition of the paint. Also, the figures have been sculpted so that they can hold accessories. While there aren't accessories produced for the line or provided with the figures, I'd try out of similar scale weapons with the Rise of the Beasts guys.

GeoBunnies are geometrical shaped plush bunnies that are meant to be entertaining and educational. And now to get the GeoBunnies plush produced on a bigger and better quality scale, they have a Kickstarter project that needs to be funded within the next several days.  

They're starting off with GeoBunnies shapes: Pentagon, Hexagon, and Equilateral Triangle. Each 5-inch tall plush has already been prototyped in plush form (as seen in the photo below) and will be made of super soft velboa fabric with formulas for calculating their are embroidered on their backsides. The plush GeoBunnies are available beginning at the $16.00 funding level, with all three being available at $45.00.

The project will only be funded if at least $9,900 is pledged by Sunday, April 5th 2015 at 9:03 PM ET.
