Hasbro Battle Beasts Anarchy Action FigureWhen Diamond Select announced their plan to revive the Battle Beasts brand this year, that was my cue to jump on the vintage guys before things blew up in a big way later in the year. Anarchy was one of the few Laser Beasts I picked up as he wasn't too pricey, and was about as cool as another mole in this series. With a drill arm and a drill weapon, thematically, he's pretty awesome as a construction/destruction/explorer type.

As with all figures in the line, he's roughly 2-inches tall and has two joints-- just the shoulders. His right arm is a normal hand, and his left arm is permanently a weapon (or tool, depending on your imagination.) What I found particularly delightful about this little guy, aside from his fat little face, were the wacky 2015-by-way-of-1988 goggles on the little guy. It's like he's from some amazingly inefficient future.

He's not the only mole in the line-- two versions of Miner Mole were sold in series 2, painted up in a delightfully goofy purple skin tone with black or purple armor. Anarchy is unquestionably neater, but he ain't cheap. Without a weapon, $10-$20 is normal, while figures with the weapon may set you back $40 or more.

The figure includes a drill weapon which matches his arm nicely, and has what appears to be a a little paw just over the handle. It also has a giant ammo clip and a ribbed tip for her pleasure. Cast in silver, it also has a number "80" sculpted on it so you may easily pair it with the figure, which is also numbered.

The US release sports a Hasbro logo and, oddly, is probably rarer than a lot of other collectible figure lines from the era. Vintage Star Wars, if you just collect a loose set, is cheaper than Battle Beasts. I like this guy a lot, and I like how the furry texture and design sensibility improved as the line went on. The current secondary prices, I could do without. But if you can get one for a fair price-- maybe $30 with a gun-- I don't think that you'd regret it. (Assuming you're OK wasting big money on tiny tiny toys, of course.)
