        You will find a great variety of knock-off and fake Battle Beast toys here. Some range from excellent copies, to generic copies. Most of these were produced in the mid 80's when Battle Beasts were released, while some are recently produced. If you have any packaged examples, or any not pictured here... please e-mail.

Gold & Silver Armored Knock-Offs
        These figures are the best knock off Battle Beasts produced. They produced in them all with silver or gold armor. The beast would be red, yellow or green. The colors are the same for each beast, they were never switched. The company also aded extra features, like a frill on the snake. Each beast has a unique weapon.

Chinese Battle Beasts
        This piece hails from China. It is a well done piece bearing no Hasbro copyrights or association. The figures inside though are actual Battle Beasts with Hasbro markings. Even the weapons have the correct numbers. They do not have rub symbols though. The package is resealed, so we really do not know what from what. My hypothesis is some unpakcaged overstock Beasts just made their way into the hand of a creative seller who made his own packages.

2" Small Animals Knock-Offs
        These little critters can be found all over North America. No packaging has ever turned up and the best resource is they have turned up as prizes from a Six-Flags theme park (Great America) in the summer of 98'.
        As figures, they are poseable at the waist and arms. They are unmarked, and very colorful! There are many animals that were never produced in the Battle Beasts line. They average about 2 inches tall, and are made of the same legs and about 2 different types of arms. It is also unknown how many different figures were made, or how many color combinations.
        Two different series have been made. One series has armor and the other does not. More details later on.

Stone Cobra
        The customs in varying quailty have been made. Tthe plastic quality will be different from the plastic that all Beasts are made from.

Sunburst Battle Beast
        Reproductions of the Sunburst sticker have now been making their way to the collector community. I have not held one on my hands but it looks to be a perfect copy. Be aware when buying a Suburst Battle Beast.

Clear Gator
        This Clear Gator seems to have some differences but it is close enough. It even has original Takara and 88' markings.

Colored Clear & Glitter
        Laser Beasts and Regular Beasts are being produced in clear colors and some in glitter.

Colored Clear Shield Sleds
        The Laser Beast Shield Sleds are found in the various colors from the Japanese Sled Pack to the European Sleds.
