Battle Beast - Deathsaurus by fourth-heir Battle Beast - Deathsaurus by fourth-heir
I was looking at my unpainted Skull Grotess repro and decided that I wanted him to be different from the regular issue... but how? After much deliberation I hit upon the idea of painting the Japan exclusive dragon laser beast as a homage to the Japan exclusive dragon transformer: Deathsaurus. Inspired! :D

You had him cast in green, you say? Is it plastic or silicon or something? Im just curious as to how it was made.

Anyway, cool custom dude. :D

It's a hard plastic (rather than the rubbery material that regular BB figures are made from) - if you want more info on how he was made you'd be best off asking Marty (THEGODBEAST) at [link] since he produces repro figures such as this one. :)

KITBASH'd! man I love custom figure. the professionalism behind this, and he's still got the "Gun-from-hell"! the only thing that could possibly be missing is a sword for this guy. Fav'd!

It doesn't scream Deathsaurus, but it's cool nonetheless.

Ah well - he's close enough for me (since I'll probably never own a real Deathsaurus unless he gets reissued at a reasonable price somewhere down the line) :) Glad you like him

Glad you like him :) white skin would probably have worked (I had him cast in green because I'd originally planned to paint him like the actual Skull Grotess figure) - not too sure a gold mouth would have looked too good though...

Not bad. But he doesn't feel Deathsaurusy enough, except for his armor.
What does "laser beast" mean?

Yeah - there was only so much I could do awhilst keeping it looking like the other beasts in my collection - perhaps if he had mechanical styled wings I'd have painted them in red and grey too for a closer resemblance.

The later series of Battle Beasts dropped the heat sensitive sticker which hid their symbol in favour of the big lensed orb you can see in his chest (the lensing effect means you can only see the beast's symbol by viewing it head-on). They also carried huge rifles instead of melee weapons which lead to the name Laser Beasts.
