Recommended: The Beast Collectible Action Figure

One of the original X-Men, The Beast started off as a normal-looking, somewhat over-sized fellow until he mutated into the blue-furred creature we know of today. Here, we have Uncanny X-Men Toy Line produced in 1993-94, which showcased Beast and many of his other mutants. This is a collectible item.

The Beast here is part of the X-Men 5 inches tall action figure line and comes with an Official Marvel Universe Trading Card. Made by the company, Toy Biz, it is no longer in production.

The Beast is #4 on The Top 10 Marvel Monsters of Halloween, a countdown provided by The Superheroes List. Halloween and Superheroes go together real well; Check out the List!
