V.S.

Which did you prefer if any? It’s a hard decision for me. I played with both extensively… even battling the two over technical superiority. The z-Bots had much better vehicles in my opinion, while the Battle Beasts (while all looking generically similar) were a cooler idea that actually had clans and such.

Like I said, it’s a hard decision. What do you think?

Fighting the two was epic. I was around 5 or 6 when they were both popular. I can remember kids collecting and trading them almost like trading cards. Battle beasts are definitely a more expensive toy right now in comparison with Z-Bots.

If I had money to burn and no wife to yell at me I'd have the full sets of each, to be honest.

Battle Beast! I'm a Transformers fan through and through so I need to side with them!

Battle Beasts, no question. I'd LOVE to have a big collection of them, but their really getting up there in price, especially if you're a completist and want the Laser beasts and all the rare vehicles and the rare figures like Stone Carp or whatever his name is, etc.

Yes, there was 3 that were big vehicle playsets. Here's a link that shows them:

FYI

For all you Battle Beast geeks like me, Diamond Select Toys bought the rights to Battle Beasts from Hasbro a couple years ago. Diamond Select is the company that makes the Minimates. Anyway... They've been showing a concept figure called Gator Guard. No others have surfaced yet, but I'm hopeful for a complete line.

Honestly, while it has more detail, I'm not feeling it to much. Give me the old ones over this. Could be good though. Cross your fingers.

Yeah, I love those little guys.

That's actually my collection in that pic I posted. I need to take an updated one. I added the red gator JASON ANTHONY posted and I've got 9 Laser Beasts now. I also have from the Chariots the Battling
Deer Stalker, and the Battling Big Horn. From the Playsets I have the Blazing Eagle, and Wood Beetle missing some parts.

Dare I ask how much your collection is worth?

Man, I couldn't tell you how much all of them are worth. I know they're worth more than what I paid for them, though! I started collection them before they got really hot.

I was able to score some nice lots on Ebay and I was finding them at Flea Markets and toy shows pretty cheap.

The Laser Beasts are pretty tough, though. Even then I haven't paid more than $15 each for any of the ones I have. I paid as low as 3 bucks each for a few of them!

My son deserves the whole set.

Let me see if I can do it without his mother finding out.

They're pretty hard to get cheap, but not impossible. Depends on how patient you are...

Edit: Updated collection pics!
