Battat, Terra series - New for 2014
« on: August 11, 2014, 10:43:33 PM »
Edit by admin. A brand new line of Battat figures sculpted by Dan LoRusso!













Takama originally broke the news as follows:

Ok. I won't be able to post photos until later. But battat has released four new dinosaurs avalible at target stores

I'm not kidding you guys.   The box says there from battat and sculpted by dan lorusso.  And they look fantstic

I think this is the thing dan was teasing us about

Well done! Yes, this was the big news I have been eager to share for a while. The Battat series is being reissued and is now available in Target. This series will include original as well as brand new species. I've seen most of them, and I think everyone will be pleased. More details will be coming soon, unless someone else has photos to share, of course.  ^-^

How exciting! I look forward to seeing the new ones in particular. Perhaps a properly feathered dromaeosaur?

Ooohh some people aren't going to be happy about this >:D I'm happy to hear it, even though I've had my fill of Battats for the time being.

A Chance to obtain battats without paying with bodyparts? Consider me interested. Them being Target Exclusive could be a problem...
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

Is one of them.


This is a dream come true. Just yesterday I was gonna post in the wishes thread something along the lines of "I wish Battat came back".


Edit: Apparently they are Target exclusives. Guess where I'm going right now!?!?!?

It looks great! Takama, may I make a suggestion for your next dinotoyblog review?... ;)

This is proper news in the world of dinosaur toys, I wonder why it has been so hush hush and has only come to light now that the figures are on the shelves. It really warranted a big buildup and fanfare! Dan and Dan, has there been some sort of embargo on this info? If so, I wonder why.  :)

Do you think the quality control issues that plagued the line originally (such as bipedal figures being unable to stand) will be avoided with this re-issue?

Well. I was not told.  I just happen to find good dinosaurs. At a target. With battat on the box. And I thoght. "Hey, is this the line that Dans dinosaurs has been teseing us about?"

Tq.  I do not know what issues the originals had.    Since I only have a qudroped I do not know if bipeds will stand

I won't even bother asking if Target Canada will have them. They are glorified dollar stores here.
