Hasbro Battle Beasts Sir Sire Horse Action FigureI didn't have this Battle Beasts figure as a kid, but I did buy Sir Sire Horse when I was in a rush to complete this collection of rubsign figures a few years ago, because I assumed wildly incorrectly that people would suddenly be more interested in this line with the Beast nouveau toy movement from 2010 to 2012. Ooops.

In Japan he was named "Bluehorse" and really, that's the correct name here. His mane is painted in the same greenish blue color of his skin, with nice blue armor. The paint job is nice and even, with red eyes and armor highlights. The figure flesh is pretty blandly sculpted, but the armor itself is quite nice. There are tons of panels and rivets, plus neat little shapes and grooves that really make everything pop nicely. The feet and hands are largely unformed, with what basically amount to mittens over both. Gripping hands can hold most 3mm weapons, so if you lose the included "Tomahorse" weapon you could substitute a LEGO broom or a shovel or whatever.

His hefty axe fits easily in his hand, and isn't too heavy to carry. The figure has a good center of gravity, and the weapon has a subtle, sparkly silver finish. As always, he has only two points of articulation - one at each shoulder - and it's a great fun little figure. He stands up well, looks cool, and is a lot of fun if you're in to this sort of thing. (You should be.)

As series 1 Battle Beasts go, this is a pretty solid one. The gritted teeth, the cool head gear, and the bizarrely great coloring makes for a fantastic toy. $5-$15 is the going rate, which isn't awful, but it's probably best that you get yours as part of a small collection as the per-figure price goes down considerably. These toys are classics, and if you ask me they're unappreciated gems. Granted, I'd say the same is true about several toy lines of the late 1980s - it was a great era, with Dino-Riders, Battle Beasts, Air Raiders, M.A.S.K., and so many other wonderful ranges of smaller (but not micro) action figure lines with a big emphasis on vehicles and creatures and playsets. This is a trend that's sadly gone away mostly, but we're seeing variations on it show up again every few years. Hasbro's recent smaller 2-packs for Guardians of the Galaxy is a fine example of trying for a similar format again, but my heart will probably always go with the classics.
