Marvel Select Avengers AoU Hulk 2

This weeks new releases from Diamond Select Toys consists of two items. The first is from a beloved classic franchise, the other, a new addition from a current box office hit. Here’s what you can find this week:

Lost In Space Electronic Lights & Sounds B9 Robot
Danger, Will Robinson! DST is known for their incredibly detailed electronic cars and starships, and now they’ve built their first-ever electronic robot! This 10-inch rendition of B9, the friendly helper robot from Lost in Space, features lights and sounds taken straight from the classic sci-fi TV show. Lights on his head and chest blink constantly while B9 is on, and additional lights and dialogue are triggered with the push of a button, including “I will accompany you, you may need protection,” “Cannot compute, programming data insufficient,” and his famous cries of “Danger!” You can also manually raise and lower his head, open and close his claws, extend his arms and turn his torso to the left and right. He even has wheels so you can roll him around! Comes packaged in full-color window box with try-me feature. (Item #AUG142281, SRP: $49.99)

B9 speaks the following dialogue:

“The function of an environmental control robot is to supply all data pertinent to this particular field.”
“Cannot compute, programming data insufficient.”
“I will accompany you, you may need protection.”
“Due to worn condition of memory bank, compliance impossible.”
“My power supply is getting very weak.”
“Emergency! Emergency!”
“I am a cybernetic servo mechanism and computer.”
“Affirmative.”
“Astronomical scanning data indicates that you are now observing Omega Nebula!”
“It would be against the prime directive of robotics to expose human beings to danger of any kind.”
“Warning! Warning!”
“Launch time, T-minus 1 minute and counting.”
“I do not sleep, it is not one of my functions.”
“Danger Danger Will Robinson!”
“I must warn the others there is a dangerous alien among us.”
