Beta was one of four BattleBots competitors to be chosen by HEXBUG for the planned second wave of their Push Strike line of toys. Though showcased at the New York Toy Fair event in 2017 and intended to be released later that year, Beta and the other toys in that wave were cancelled and only prototypes remain.[1]

As with other toys planned for the second wave of Push Strike toys, it is based on the World Championship II version of Beta, as work on the toy commenced several years before Beta was seen again in BattleBots after the 2016 season. Its iconic hammer only appeared to have 90 degrees of movement, however, which was inaccurate compared to its real-life counterpart.

The hammer is activated by pressing down on the arm and allowing it to strike. The rest of the toy is highly accurate to Beta's ABC BattleBots look, with its hammer arm, head and support all detailed well relative to the toy's size. The wedges surrounding the bot are also accurate, with the same gray color also seen on Tombstone's Push Strike toy from the first wave.

Although the Push Strike line was discontinued after 2016, Beta received merchandise not too long after in the form of a HEXBUG remote control toy.
