I have an close encounter with the Beast!!!
I ran to a local retail shop with a bunch of local flashaholics and got some hands on experience with the Beast. It was a serial no. 008 out of 100! According to the shop owner, the last one was snatch up within a week! The Beast appeared to be surprisingly light with a very rugged built. The output was crazy bright and was able to light up a whole city block. For its size, I was amazed to find out it can be operated with a single hand. However, the tint of the beam seemed to alternate from a HID like to a slightly yellow back and forth /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif. Here is some pics:

If you didnt blind somebody you could definately club them to death with it in just a swing or 2.

The green plastic ring is the bezel protector comes with the package. Ugly but very functional.
