Zik Escapes! by luke314pi Zik Escapes! by luke314pi
Zik is part of the new Battle Beasts line by Diamond Select Toys. The backdrop is from an old Weapon X figure. Zik is available here: [link]

I thought the Vorin character looked really cool, but I was not very excited about Zik. What do you think of the figure?

I think Zik was a great idea with poor execution. His color scheme seems "off", and his wings do not function well. I think if those two items had been fixed he would have been a much better figure.

I was unimpressed with Zik. I actually didn't buy the toys at SDCC because I didn't like that character. I thought Vorin looked really cool though. I'm really glad to see that the rest of the line is closer to what Vorin was because otherwise, I would have likely lost interest. I've since gone ahead and ordered the toys because of how cool vorin looked. I liked his paint in that set better than what I've seen in the toyline set to be released. I like the comic-style coloring they are giving the rest of the figures in that set, but really want to see what the colors the toys'r'us version will have too. Also wondering what their exclusives there will be in the toys'r'us line because I think there will be one or two of those that we haven't seen yet.

Yeah I have a feeling I will be tempted by the TRU "brighter" colors in addition to the comic colors. Apparently TRU will have 2 exclusive beasts to replace the human characters in the line.

I also figured that would be how they did the TRU exclusives. I hope they are cool beasts and not new human characters. I have no idea what I will think of the brighter TRU figures because I haven't seen them yet and don't know what to expect. I do think that the way Vorin is colored in the comic line is too bright though. He doesn't match the others. I originally thought that was going to be the TRU version. For the most part, I'm pretty jazzed about the new Battle Beasts line. I had a bunch of the figures when I was a kid and was excited to pick up the new comic because I'm more of a comic fan than a toy collector these days. Then I won that guitar from SDCC and have been somewhat obsessing over the new stuff since then.

Congrats on winning the guitar! It looked really cool. I think this line of figures will do well. The preorders in our store have been very encouraging, and we have only had them up for order a few days.

Thanks! I've actually visited your online store. Will you be doing a set that includes both the comic versions and the tru versions?

Not a full set of all together, as that hasn't sold well for us in the past, but we will definitely have all of them.

I'll admit I know little about Battle Beasts, both the original and the new so I'm not sure if Zik escaping is a good thing or a bad but either way this shot is awesome :D
