Life In Plastic: TOY REVIEW: Battle Tribes Part 2

Well, now that you’ve met the Battle Tribes (by Spy Monkey.  Sold by Spy Monkey.  Go to Spy Monkey to purchase),  let’s loka t some colorways!  These are a small sample of the stuff this line has to offer – keep in mind that individual colorways tend to sell out fast, so you have to pay attention to when new releases come on sale. Ideally, you should be able to build an army, with appropriate bodies for each available head! But let’s take a look at some of these color schemes.

The Green Orc was one of the earlier colorways, and although it was clearly intended for the Orc, it actually fits with a lot more than just that.

The Spikeasaurian really looks fantastic in green!

The Dracosaurian also looks pretty good, too.

I have to admit, the green Barbarian looks weird, but that’s part of the charm!

The Wolf Hunter actually looks like a masked orc.

The Cyclops looks great in green, too.

It should be mentioned that the dinosaurs look fantastic when color-coordinated!

And that DX hooded head looks fantastic with a matching harness!

The Slime set is awesome! And creative! This barbarian is roughly the same shade as melon Gatorade.

The Wolf Hunter demonstrates that yes, there are paint apps on the slime version.

A slime cyclops just seems to fit somehow.

The Slime Orc is basically just a slime monster of any kind now – his smooth textures really fit.

The slime Dracosaurian looks fantastic in emerald mode, actually.

And the slime Spikeasaurian gives you the most green texture for your buck, if you want.

This blue set is the Arachnoid Thief – it’s based on Webstor from He-Man. See how the orc has extra eyes? It’s a pretty ingenious take, and Battle Tribes does this from time to time – they’ve already mimicked plenty of He-Man and Thundercats characters.

Just one tampo effect changes this orc around entirely.

Speaking of tributes, the regular Barbarian now looks like Faker! So this colorway is a double-tribute!

The Wolf Hunter is essentially a very creepy Batman now, like this.

This red eye makes the Cyclops quite creepy!

The Dracosaurian also looks quite fantastic in blue!

The Spikeasaurian seems to be great in any colorway as blue is positively striking! EVen though the set is deisnged for the Orc head, this one is just amazing.

Well, there you have it! A sample of what the Battle Tribes have to offer. Keep checking their site, and be sure to be on-time for new releases!
