Consisting of a staggering 51 different soft vinyl cast parts designed by A.O.I in conjunction with turboPISTOLA, the series features a number of interchangeable pieces inspired by previous A.O.I releases ‘Atomic Beartank’ and ‘Seismic Ace’, Spanky Stokes’ Stroll, plus a number of all-new designs from the pair. Cast in a soft Japanese vinyl by none other than Velocitron, we should hopefully be seeing the first release soon… We’ll be interested to see whether the line will be offered up as a set of individual parts or as fully assembled bots, and of course, how colour will be dealt with considering the interchangeability factor- the possibilities are limitless! Either way, this will be one series any diehard ‘bot fan will NOT want to miss…
