Our friends at Toyfinity Toys have a new release planned for this week. They will be offering their latest Zeroids colorway with the Hunter Neo Zeroids, as well as new Darkness Soldiers. The newest items go on sale at 9:00 PM EST at the Toyfinity Store. Here’s the details from Toyfinity:
The long battles on Diavolus were over…
MAXX ZERO and the Robo Force had gained new friends in Neo Zeroid Assassin and Zeroid Striker, as well as a new mission: find the Prime Zeroids and unlock the secrets of planet Zeton!
The journey took Maxx, his second-in-command and hotheaded brother-in-arms Sentinel the Protector, Assassin, and Striker deep into sections of the galaxy untouched since the explorations of the STAR TEAM generations before.
The signal of a Zeroid Sensor Station drew the Force’s attention; Assassin demanded they investigate, in case any Zeroid was still functioning on the planet.
Deep in the foliage of a jungle planet, the Robo Force discovered a forgotten tribe of HUNTER NEO ZEROIDS…
led by the first-constructed of Zeroid Zemo himself, ZEMORIAN (picture coming soon!).
Burnt-out circuitry and faulty memory chips had driven Zemorian into a paranoid state. He believed that any visitor to the planet was trying to take their jungle away – and would have to prove their claim to the planet by undergoing Zemo’s test – the Great Hunt.
Stripped of their weapons, Maxx and the team must once again find a way to prevail over a superior foe – another impossible mission for the Robo Force!
But there was a greater problem on the horizon…
What the Hunters did not know was that another group had tracked their signal – a group that believed the resurgence of the Zeroids would lead to the destruction of the universe.
And so, it was time for the shroud of Darkness to fall once again.
The DARKNESS SOLDIERS entered the jungle with simple orders – bring back any mechanoid powered by a Z-Core (the energy source at the heart of the Prime Zeroids AND Maxx Zero) and destroy the rest.
Who will survive this conflict of wills in the primal elements of a planet untamed by technology or men?
The Hunters? The Hunted? Or a literal legion of Darkness?

We are capping off our look at the rebirth of Machine Robo (aka Go-Bots) today with a look at Rod Drill aka Screwhead! Rod Drill is another character that had some exposure here in the States and children of the 80’s probably remember. He’s a bit smaller than the rest but packs a ton of articulation into his little frame. He comes packed with pile driver weapons and one of those awesome configurable bases. Let’s take a closer look after the break courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!
Next up in our look at the modern relaunch of the Japanese Go-Bots (aka Machine Robo) is Battle Robo, aka Tank from the Go-Bots line. Battle Robo keeps his short and stocky nature, his pyramid like head piece and fold over transformation, all while upgrading to today’s articulation and sculpting standards. He features a mix of plastic and die cast, paint where it counts, and removable weapons. While not as iconic as Leader-1 or Cy-Kill, Tank is someone many kids from the 80s remember. Let’s take a closer look after the break courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!
Action Toys has jumped into the game pretty quick with their take on the classic Machine Robo series. Machine Robo for those that may not know, is the toyline that spawned the Go-Bots here in America. Leader-1, Cy-Kill and the rest all came from Machine Robo, remixed into the Go-Bots toyline with a new cartoon for the US. The original cartoon in Japan was very different, and it’s later series Revenge of Chronos was as well.
The Action Toys figures come from the anime Revenge of Chronos only, but luckily many of our favorites are in there too. To start, they have released 4 bots – Eagle Robo (Leader 1), Bike Robo (Cy-Kill), Battle Robo (Tank), and Rod Drill (Screw Head). Today we begin taking a closer look with #03 Eagle Robo (Leader-1). Head on in after the break to check over 50 in-hand images courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!
After they announced their massive Hasbro Cinematic Universe, it was inevitable to start hearing news on some of the assorted properties. Thanks to TF at the Moon, we now see that Hasbro has kicked things off with new Micronauts trademarks. From the looks of it, Micronauts is set to get a major licensing push. The new trademarks cover some of the following:
Needless to say, not all of these will definitely happen. This is Hasbro covering their bases so they can produce a variety of licensed products, or license them out to other companies to produce.
The Machine Robo Facebook Page released some great new images of the upcoming Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos figures. Fans of classic Go-Bots will want to check these out, as they showcase the two characters they’re likely to want the most, Bike Robo and Eagle Robo. Included in the new images are:
The figures are available for pre-order now. Read on to check out the images.
