A line brought to my attention by one of the many avid readers of Counter-X.net, world's number one website for Revenge of Cronos, the 1984 Formula One season and people who don't spell Zanbot 3 properly.

About the size of Gobots (scum translation: Legends), all-plastic but featuring paint rather than plastic that's vaguely the right colour. Adorable IMO, and the pterodactyl is what Graphy should have looked like - and transforms into something more awesome than a box with a drawing of a cassette on the back.

Quite funky... they look quite small from the detail; wouldn't mind chipping in for one of the dino or bird ones if you're doing an order.

Box launched in your direction BTW.

The truck one is shell formery but yeah, pretty cute. A rouge 80's line or more recent?

Presumably it's pronounced in a nice dramatic "DIE ROBO!" way?

I'm thinking of grabbing whichever one is cheapest on ebay for a quality check and going from there, but yeh, My Source says about the same size as small Gobots. Which is kinda nice - the amount of robot designs I've seen in recent years (like that Hot Wheels one) that've been made too large is annoying.

Cheers - will hopefully have something coming to you soon once co-workers sheepishly admit that a bit of snow wasn't actually the apocalypse and they might deign to walk 400 yards to work.

There's quite a lot more on eBay... just scored an ambulance that turns into a T-Rex for ten bucks. Including 'diapet' gets a few not otherwise included, although it's a more generic term.

Look at seller 'thecrowgirl'.

I've got the entire first wave of these awesome little guys. I'm going to do a photo shoot of them soon, I'll post them here when I get it done.
