    Just saw some of the Metabots line at Fred Meyer in the puzzles and games isle, and had to find out more about the company. These are styrene foam models that have moveable joints. I thought there may be some interest in the Toyark for these. The look like a lot of fun. I might pick some up. The prototype versions can be painted any way that one wants.

    Hmm, I dunno if there would be much interest for the models themselves, but possibly for kitbashers.

    The Prototype ones where you can color them yourself look cool

    Interesting choices of names. Especially the "formerly known as" ones, like that construction 'bot Metroplex. I wonder if the name was changed because they couldn't get it, because Hasbro still has it from Cybertron, or if that's now expired but they just decided against it.

    Nephilim is another one - a Xenosaga reference.

    Edit: NM the site says Target, has anyone seen them there?
