Will the animated violence never end?

Diamond Select Toys has put together a stop-motion animation short film to celebrate the retail release of their Battle Beasts Minimates line. The stop-motion, put together by Alex Kropinak, features some of the Toys "R" Us exclusive Battle Beasts replicating some of the action from the first issue of IDW Publishing's Battle Beasts comic as well as showing off the series' mix-n-match potential (not seen in the comic).

The Toys "R" Us exclusive Battle Beasts, which sport new (shinier) color decos as well as two exclusive characters (the bat seen in the video as well as a moose), are starting to hit Toys "R" Us stores and are listed (but not available) on the TRU website.

Hit the jump for the video.
