This is the latest in a series (of indefinite length and regularity) of blog posts memorializing cancelled toys. Our selection today is Diamond Select Toys' Battle Beasts Minimates.
The first series of Battle Beasts was good, but didn't seem to set the world on fire; which is why the announcement that there would be a Series 2 came as such a shock.
That shock was well founded, alas, because in the latest Ask DST, the company confirmed that the Minimates are "on hold." That may not be an official cancellation, but it certainly seems close enough for us.
