A press release has gone out from The Nacelle Company, detailing plans for the first wave of Robo Force action figures. The revamped line of figures, based on a classic 80’s toy property, will go up for pre-order beginning in April. The first assortment will feature the leader of Robo Force; Max Steele. Joining him will be his trusted ally, Wrecker. The figures are fully articulated, and will each stand about 7.5″ tall.
Long time fans of the property will recall that Toyfinity had revived the line a few years ago, with a long running series of Glyos compatible figure kits that paid homage to the classic look and story. The new Robo Force line is set to be a complete imagining, with a completely new look for the robots, and an all-new story. The figures will be priced at $49.99 each. Wave 2, which will include fellow Robo Force member SOTA, and the villainous Hun-Dred.
Read on for the full press release, as well as new images of the upcoming figures.
The Nacelle Company Reveals Pre-Sale Info For Wave One Of Their Robo Force Collectible Figure Line
LOS ANGELES, CA – The Nacelle Company, the studio behind Netflix’s The Toys That Made Us, The Movies That Made Us, A Toy Store Near You, and Behind The Attraction on Disney+ are excited to announce the first wave of Robo Force 7.5 inch collectible action figures will be available to pre-order for $49.99 on NacelleStore.com starting April 22, 2022! After spending the last year acquiring nostalgic IPs like The Great Garloo, Power Lords, Big Loo and the legendary Marx Toys brand, Nacelle is kicking off their first wave of Robo Force action figures with highly detailed and fully articulated versions of Maxx Steele and Wrecker.
In 2021, Nacelle Company announced its acquisition of the beloved 80s franchise, Robo Force, with plans to reintroduce the characters through a television series, books and other lifestyle products. Now, less than a year later, the company is revealing the first images of the Robo Force action figure line created by renowned toy designer, David Vonner. Painstaking detail was used to make sure that Robo Force’s rich history should be taken seriously, yet updated with modern aesthetics meant to broaden the audience.
Robo Force’s Maxx Steele and Wrecker return as part of Nacelle’s Very Important Toy Line of 7.5-inch scale figures. These deluxe, fully articulated, 7.5” figures feature beautiful package art, alongside its own collector-friendly window box.
Maxx Steele was destined to be the latest and greatest in law enforcement (he was literally built to do it), but on the day before his first patrol, the UTOPIA101 line was revealed to the world. Maxx Steele was quietly reassigned to the traffic beat. Despite his best efforts to conform, Maxx Steele’s passion for crime fighting, along with a growing distrust of the UTOPIA line, leads Maxx down a path into other, unauthorized, lines of police work. This will create problems. A LOT of problems.
Wrecker was built to be the jack-of-all-trades for the ROBO FORCE line; he has a tool for every occasion. Sadly, due to the rise of the UTOPIA101 line, those occasions never occurred. Reassigned to use his staggering strength and empathy codex to do the most mundane jobs in the basement of Police Rhombus HQ, Wrecker eventually teams up with Maxx Steele to help protect the innocent, and keep an eye on the increasingly erratic UTOPIA Force (as well as Hun-Dred and his evil minions).
Nacelle Company’s Robo Force revival proves that nostalgic public interest in the franchise is higher than it’s ever been and this is the perfect time to reintroduce Robo Force to a new generation of fans and collectors.
“Of all the IP’s we’ve been buying, we wanted to launch our toy division with Robo Force because not only are they fun and iconic, but due to them being crushed at Toy Fair in 1984 by another line of charismatic transforming robots, we wanted to give them their due with a reimagined storyline and high end redesigns. But don’t despair lovers of the 80’s version, our new figures will of course have the infamous suction cups, but these will be attached to something the originals never had; legs!” said Nacelle Company Founder and CEO, Brian Volk-Weiss.
Product Features include:
- 7.5-inch scale (19.05 cm)
- Injection Molded Action Figure
- Highly Detailed
- Fully Articulated
- Reimagined from the classic Robo Force™ line
- Part of The Nacelle Company’s Very Important Toy Line
The pre-sale for Wave Two, which will include Hun-Dred and SOTA will be announced later in the year.
