Sentinel is going away!

We're down to the last stock of Hunter Sentinel - once he's gone, he's gone for good in this colorway!

I had ordered a tremendous amount of stock on this guy back in 2014 to make sure we'd have something in the store for a long, long time - and he's officially our best-selling figure ever! Thanks to everyone who discovered Robo Force over the years and ordered as many as ten of this guy at a time.

We're still on track for new product late May/early June - stay tuned!

THANK YOU!

You guys are fantastic!

Nazgar, Assassin and Striker are sold out, and thank you for validating my faith in the idea of moving ahead with new figures.
It is difficult to be in this business. The rewards are intense - I like making things and knowing people are having fun collecting and building with them - but there is always that risk that a new product won't go over as well as one would like.
We don't have that here.

It's going to be a while before you see any new product out of Toyfinity, with Chinese New Year shutting the factories down, but look for more Toyfinity fun around May of this year!

ARMAGEDDON IS HERE! NAZGAR THE TYRANT LIVES!

SUPER ZEROID BLACK...is NAZGAR THE TYRANT!

With his acquisition of a Z-Core, the most powerful energy source for mechanical beings in the known universe, Nazgar is able to shed his old life-sustaining biosuit and create an entirely new form for himself out of Zeroid technology. Will MAXX ZERO and the Robo Force be able to stop him?

Nazgar was the legendary unreleased "big bad" of the Robo Force line, shown in the 1985 Ideal Catalog but never released - and now you can own him in an all-new Glyos System compatible form!

This is a very special release for Toyfinity, as we are also adding THE ZEROIDS to our catalog of figures.
These "worker robots of the future" were a popular franchise for Ideal in the 60s and 70s as part of S.T.A.R. Team, and now they are back to assist Maxx Zero in the battle against the Cult of Dred!

Nazgar, Neo Zeroid Assassin, and Zeroid Striker go on sale THIS SUNDAY February 7th at 7 pm Eastern Standard Time.
Nazgar is $35, includes the special first edition Nazgar head as shown in the picture (not available anywhere else), and allows you to build two figures at the same time: Nazgar and the Nazguardian/Technician Zeroid.



Zeroid Striker is $20.

Neo Zeroid Assassin is $14.

Continue your Robo Force and Zeroids collections with these all-new items!

WAR OF THE ZEROIDS - STRIKER AND SUPER ZEROID BLACK!

Neo Zeroid Assassin has an assistant in his divine mission - ZEROID STRIKER.
 This older-model Zeroid was created long ago, and serves as protector and soldier to Assassin.
And Assassin needs him, because they are constantly being thwarted by...
SUPER ZEROID BLACK!
 
This mechanoid and his assistants, the TECHNICIAN ZEROIDS, are on the same quest for Zeroid technology, though Assassin cannot recognize the design of SZB from his database...not that he has been able to contact Zintar The Explorer for a number of years now to discern the origin of SZB.

DAWN OF THE ZEROIDS!

After their reawakening on a strange beast-filled world, with the loss of their history and knowledge, the Zeroids looked to reestablish themselves in the universe.
Led by ZINTAR THE EXPLORER and ZERAK THE DESTROYER, the Zeroids escaped into space in a barely-functioning makeshift Exploration Module and began a search for a new home to replace their lost Planet Zero.

Many years later....
The Zeroid Ascendancy has been fractured.
Key philosophical differences between Zintar and Zerak, without the firm claws of COMMANDER ZOGG to guide them, have led to different evolutionary paths for these mechanical wonders. The tribes of the Prime Zeroids have gone their own ways, interacting very little over the interceding years.  

NEO ZEROID ASSASSIN, modeled after the Neo form of his patron Zintar, is charged with one mission:
recovering Zeroid technology from the hands of the organics - or destroying it.
Assassin employs the newest in Zeroid technology - a Magnet Blaster replaces the old Magnet Hand, turning it into a powerful weapon against all types of life, while the magnetic generator tied to his Beta Core allows him to float over most surfaces.
He lives in a natural state of distrust after the instances of sheer ignorance he has witnessed from other beings. He hopes to one day return the artifacts he and his partner have found to Zintar...though it has been many years since Zintar has returned a communication.

The return of...THE ZEROIDS!

Before the ROBO FORCE®...
Before the STAR TEAM®...
there were - THE ZEROIDS!®

The 60s were the beginning of action figures as we know them - and since Major Matt Mason was based  on NASA reality, it fell to Colorforms and Ideal to expand the cosmic world children could experience with THE OUTER SPACE MEN® and ZEROIDS.

These Worker Robots of the Future had a spectacular run at the dawn of action figure history, returning briefly to toy shelves as part of the STAR TEAM in combat with the evil KNIGHT OF DARKNESS™... but they have been dormant ever since - until now.

When MAXX ZERO™ activates the Ancient Constructs, a long forgotten signal is sent that no modern robotic entity can decode - but it is heard by the ZEROIDS!
Will they be friends to the Robo Force...or enemies?

The Zeroids return in an all-new Glyos®-compatible form, adding to the new Zetonian mythos.
Use them with the existing Robo Force kit and unlock even more new robotic creations!
The first release is coming later this month!
But if you joined CLUB ZETON, you'd already have received the test shot shown below!
As always, special thanks to MATT DOUGHTY and RON D. for their roles in the rebirth of the ZEROIDS!
