Awhile ago DST announced a new line of Battle Beasts. We’ve seen Vorin, now see the rest.
We’ve seen a couple different versions of Vorin, the leader of the rebel band, at Chicago Comic-Con and San Diego Comic-Con. Today DST has released images of the first series of Battle Beasts that will be exclusive to comic and speciality shops.
Diamond had this to say:
After years of planning, Diamond Select Toys has opened up pre-orders for their first series of Battle Beasts Minimates! Appearing in the September issue of Previews, the first series of specialty figures will follow the IDW Publishing comic book mini-series, with characters and color schemes that will only be found at comic shops and specialty stores.

If you’re not reading the IDW comic, you need to be. The ‘Verse gave the first issue 5 out of 5 and the minimates are a very good match to the comic book designs.
I wasn’t a Battle Beasts fan back in the day, but these are really impressive.
