Hasbro Battle Beasts Hare Razing Rabbit Action FigureAnother one of my very first Battle Beasts was Hare Razing Rabbit, a simple figure with two arm joints, a spear, and a second figure in every pack. For about four bucks you could get two cheap (but fun) figures in the 1980s. Heck, for $1 you could get a pack of four random M.U.S.C.L.E. guys. Today, astonishingly, you can still get a Hot Wheels car for a dollar but not a heck of a lot else. The reasons for this are many: increasing labor costs, higher materials prices, and a constant ascent in fan demands for figures that have more parts and more deco. I was pretty amazed that Diamond got its new Minimates Battle Beasts to Toys R Us for $7.49 per pair in early 2013.

The figure exists in a world of 1980s toy logic that sadly rarely exists today. Many figures in this line look similar to their real-world counterparts, and then there are green rabbits and purple elephants. Having a green figure with green armor seemed like an odd choice, but extra pink and yellow highlights do a pretty great job bringing him to life. He has bright yellow eyes, a little round tail, a cute bunny nose, and a pair of pointy ears. Other than whiskers and buck teeth - which may make him look too comical - the sculptors did a bang-up job making a pretty decent rabbit warrior figure. As a series 1 figure there's not too much sculpted detail, but there are robotic lines and panels on his armor, some pink wires, and mechanized shoes which match the color of his skin for some reason.

The figure has a grey double-bladed weapon with a number "22" on it, which matches the "22" on the figure's head. This is a handy way to keep track of which weapon goes to which figure. It fits right into his hand, and the hand is sort of a mitten, lacking in finger detail or sculpted bits. It's pretty primitive even for its era, figures in the second series and beyond started getting finger detail and it really looked great. Of course, if the figure just stands around on your shelf, you probably won't notice anyway.

Today, the figure sells from anywhere from $7-$13 with the weapon, which isn't exactly cheap. However, if you buy a collection or a "lot" on eBay the price per figure can sometimes drop to as little as $3 or $4 per, which is an incredible deal. While by no means impressive, the figure does carry a number of the important features for a good toy figure: he can stand on his own, he has some articulation, he's painted, and he has no problems fitting in his vehicles and playsets. As an added bonus, he was pretty cheap initially and these guys are usually in pretty good shape nearly 30 years later. The sticker on the chest tends to pop off, and I've heard of figures with missing arms, but I've never had that problem myself.
