Thank you!


Thanks to all of you for another great release!

This was one that was percolating behind the scenes for a while.
I mean, Classic Hun-Dred was an absolute must for the collections.
There was a question on how to do him properly at first - run each mold in the colors and then do some painting, or to go with the approach we wound up using where we painted the figure in the appropriate places. We chose the latter to give more control over how the figure would look...it's very hard to match paint and molded plastic (as many fans of MOTU Classics could attest!) so we went with the paint method. I hope everyone likes it!
One of the fun things about the Hun-Dred kit was coming up with an alternate Maxx build using the parts - meet DRED-MAXX!

I know some of you will appreciate the first-ever tampo of the CULT OF DRED on the alternate Maxx chest on this kit.


I've been having a lot of fun with these kits - here's an unlimited build of ENEMY using one Zeroid kit from this round, one Maxx Zeroid, and one Hun-Dred.

I feel like getting Zintar out there in his fully painted configuration really showed what the Zeroid can so, so I think we'll be continuing with the other classics in the line...and maybe a few surprises...
There will probably be at least one more release this year, bringing more long-awaited editions to your shelves.

Oh yeah - I know some people wanted to see the Super Zeroid build in all its glory - here you go!

The quest is over - ZINTAR has been found! But will he be able to survive the assault of HUN-DRED? ROBO FORCE RETURNS!

For over a year, MAXX ZERO has been on a quest to find the PRIME ZEROIDS, in the hope that they can help him locate the rare element RYTON - the only thing that can defeat NAZGAR THE TYRANT and end his 1000 year reign of evil.

With data obtained from the FORGOTTEN ZEROID, Maxx has finally located ZINTAR THE EXPLORER on a planet far, far from ZETON. But an unexpected guest crashes the party - HUN-DRED THE CONQUEROR has found Maxx at last, recovered from his injuries and ready to settle the score with Maxx AND Zintar!
Hun-Dred will do anything to protect the long-lost secrets of the Zeroids - and the battle is ON!

The fighting is intense!
But Hun-Dred has grown too powerful under the influence of Compound 14 for even Maxx and Zintar to stop! It will take the power of twin Z-CORES to stop him, unleashing a robotic force upon the universe long rumored to exist - THE SUPER ZEROID!

This Sunday at 6 pm EST, Toyfinity returns to Zeton and Uzalek to present the following new Robo Force editions:


CLASSIC HUN-DRED
 
 CLASSIC ZINTAR
MAXX ZEROID
 
This was a particularly exciting project to work on, as Zintar the Explorer marks his return to toy shelves with the first new edition since 1970!
As well as the first-ever Classic Hun-Dred edition since 1984!
There is also a secret build we'll show in full tomorrow for the Super Zeroid which requires one Zintar and one Maxx Zeroid to build.
You'll also be able to build a special colorway of Nazgar with these kits plus new NAZARREN brains on sale tomorrow.

In addition, we have two new entries in the MORDLES family of products:

 DEMO-GEIST MORDLES
 M.O.R.D.L.E

So join us Sunday at 6 pm EST in the Toyfinity store for these all-new editions!

Invisible Warriors!



Maxx Zero left Zeton during the grieving process for a fallen friend.
He battled against the threat of Imperious Maxx and Demonslither.
He learned of the existence of the NEO ZEROIDS, and their link to the ancient past of Zeton.

Looking for answers to the origin of Zeton and the solution to rescuing his planet from the enslavement of Nazgar, Maxx quests for a crucial mechanical predecessor to the Neos - Zintar the Explorer, a legendary Prime Zeroid.

While making routine repairs to his ship on an uncharted planet, Maxx discovers a long forgotten Zeroid who has harnessed a rare element that allows him to become invisible - and its devastating effect on biological entities.
Maxx uses the element to give himself invisibility, unaware that the interaction with biological material in his own Z-Core will have unintended side effects... While Maxx, the Forgotten Zeroid, and the rest of the Force battle horrible SLIME MORDLES, Maxx begins to hallucinate, his mental circuits poisoned by the element. His eyes shift to black, his mind possibly lost... Will Maxx prevail?
Will the Slime Mordles destroy the universe?
Only you can decide!

With this release, Toyfinity closes out its fourth year of business operations. Many thanks as always to the godfather Matt Doughty for his assistance and inspiration.

What will 2017 bring? Wait and see...for now, enjoy these editions - and pick up some of the classics still available!

The Origin of the Nazarran

The forces of Darkness comb the jungle planet, backed up by the power of CRUEL the DETONATOR...

It was with great disappointment that NAZGAR the TYRANT learned of the defeat of the Darkness Soldiers by MAXX ZERO and his ROBO FORCE on the jungle planet of the HUNTER ZEROIDS.
The Zeroids, his greatest enemy...those who had taken his flesh and blood from him....their reappearance did not bode well for Nazgar's long-term plans. Even with his new body, fueled by one of the Zeroid's own Z-CORES, Nazgar still felt the fear which had creeped into his soul during the hundreds of years he was previously trapped in a small meti-plex jar. It could be no coincidence that they were seen again so close chronologically to when Maxx Zero appeared on Zeton - in a Zeroid Exploration Module to boot.
If Commander Zogg still functioned somewhere...
Nazgar resolved himself. Was he not the subjugator of worlds? The lone warrior in a crusade against the false gods of a thousand worlds? Maxx Zero - the Robo Force - the Zeroids - they were only problems to be solved.

New strategies were needed.


Nazgar left ZETON in the care of Battlestar the Guardian while Hun-Dred recovered from the Battle at Futura One. He would infiltrate the Zeroids using the transformation capabilities of his new form, in a new body lost to legend and discovered by the Cult of Dred - a "Super Zeroid".
At the same time, he sent Cruel and Brutal to the jungle planet with a simple mission: find and capture a Zeroid...for a blasphemous experiment.

 
Commanding a literal army of Darkness Soldiers, Brutal and Cruel stalk their prey with the dark forces at their command!
 The terrain of the jungle planet varies, necessitating the use of Hover Tanks for some of the Soldiers.
 Immense foliage hides the energy signatures of the Zeroids.
 Cruel's silent form watches over the Darkness Soldiers. He supplies a special weapon to the commander of the Darkness which will be able to stun the Zeroid, should they find one.
Brutal sings a ridiculous tune about "devil Zeroids in the tall grass" as he tears up the earth with his hooked arms.
A Zeroid darts out from its hiding place, but Brutal moves with unearthly reflexes.
"I've got one, Cruel bay-bey!" Brutal exclaims.
The Darkness Soldiers rush over, weapons at the ready.
A Magnet Blaster shot knocks one Soldier unconcious.
The hover tank moves into place, blasting the Hunter Zeroid with incredible concentrated magnetic force.
The shock sends the Zeroid into a powered down state.

Now the experiment can begin.


With the Zeroid stunned, Cruel signals through his incredible communication antennae with his dark master, Nazgar.
A short time later, a Darkness Soldier bears witness to the technological desecration to come. Nazgar has arrived! His brain rises from the shielding on top of his body, no longer stuck in a jar due to the infusion of Z-Core energy and Manglor blood!


  "Good job, my warriors." proclaims Nazgar. "The experiment can now begin."
Though Cruel did not speak, Nazgar could sense that his silent warrior enjoyed the encouragement.
 
 From his techno-pack, Nazgar draws a biological horror - the Nazarran, a mass of tissue derived from his own superior restructured genetics. Its programming is known only to Nazgar, but it surely does not carry good tidings for the Zeroids
The creature is attached, a secretion of biological rust agents dripping onto the metals of the Hunter Zeroid. It digs into the casing that holds the brain mechanisms of the Zeroid, attaching itself deeply, learning the secrets of body configurations, weapon capabilities.
Long dormant self-defense mechanisms take over, erasing the mind of the Zeroid before secret memories can be obtained.
The machine and the flesh become one.
 In its final moments, the Hunter Zeroid awakens, feels the pain of the Nazarran digging into its circuitry - whatever the approximation of pain the long-ago First Zeroid programmed into his progeny was equivalent to. His final thought before the creature and self-defense programming erased his mind, his personality, his soul forever was of ZEMO THE HUNTER. The Zeroid made a wish...a wish that his Zeroid patron would avenge this blasphemy against mechanical life.
The creature finished the changes in the body of the Neo Zeroid, creating a mobility system for it to move. Programmed with hate on a biological level, the Nazarran use Zeroid technology against the Prime Zeroids in a quest to subjugate the mechanical beings of the universe!


Nazgar and his warriors celebrate the blending of flesh and machine!

Will they be able to turn the tide against Maxx Zero and the Robo Force? Stay tuned!

THANK YOU!

Thank you to all of the fans who supported our most recent release of Robo Force, Zeroids, Mordles, and Star Team characters!
You have many choices for your collectible needs, and each and every purchase is appreciated more than you can know.
A few fans had asked for a pic of the Maxx Zero build possible with the Sentinel kit, so check out Protector Maxx Zero above!
The Nazarran and blank white kits are low stock so get them while you can.

And do not despair, supporters of the Cult of Dred...though the Robo Force has once again beaten the Darkness Soldiers, the Darkness shall Fall again...

Ah, a special thanks to Matt Doughty of Onell Design for once again allowing the Robo Force to live again. Can't do it without you, my brother.
