Reviews of the complete sets Beetle Battle by Epoch. Both sets were originally released in 2005. These were always sets I said I would get if the opportunity came up, but I never aggressively pursued them. Now that I have them they are nicer than I thought. Both sets have 6 figures.

Minimal assembly is required, and the come with a base and an elevated peg on which to display them. The two sets have different colored bases and pegs. The concept is they can be 'locked in battle'; the bases even loosely connect to one another. They are small, similar in size to early Kaiyodo or Furuta figures, or standard TOOB/tube-sized figures. Some of the species are common, and one (as far as I know) is unique.

Set 1:

Dynastes hercules vs. Dynastes neptunus.

Cyclommatus metallifer vs. Prosopocoilus inclinatus.
Cyclommatus species don't get a lot of attention so good to see one here!

Beetle Battle, Series 1 and 2 (Epoch) 20181226-163827

Allomyrina dichotoma vs. Lucanus maculifemoratus.

Set 2:

Odontolabis lacordairei vs. Hexarthrius parryi.
The O. lacordairei is, to my knowledge, a unique figure.

Allotopus rosenbergi vs. Megasoma elephas.

Beetle Battle, Series 1 and 2 (Epoch) 20181226-163722

Augosoma centaurus vs. Chalcosoma moellennkanmpi.
A. centaurus doesn't get a lot of attention, so nice to see it here!
