Review: Hasbro Battle Beasts Slasher Seahorse
Another Battle Beasts I've had since it was first in stores, Slasher Seahorse is my buddy. It looks like we'll get at least one semi-updated version of this sea creature in Beast Saga eventually, but he ain't out yet. Let's look at an original!
Like most of the vintage Battle Beasts, Slasher Seahorse manages to combine Takara's robotic eyes with an adorable house style, resulting in a collectible figure that appeals to children and adult man-children alike. His glowing red eyes don't really shine in his brown plastic head, but they contrast nicely with his blue armor complete with silver lights. Much like the fire-spitting dragons in Metroid, his snout and crest come off as cute and you're probably also just so gosh darned happy to have one that it may not bother you that his paint spray isn't terribly even, and when you have dark plastic it can show through any light paint errors much more easily.
