    I know many of us collect toys that are'nt Transformers, so give some heads up on them.

    Here's the place to check out all the 'other' stuff out there that alot of us may be interrested in.


    -CONTENTS-

    -Plasma Tech
    -Transforming Batwing
    -Neo Shifters
    - Bionicle Thulox
    - Teen Titans T Robo


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    First up- Plasma Tech (by Mega Bloks)


    These dudes are pretty cool, and they combine with the Plasma dragons and dinos. (or each other)

    Just wish they had more joints than 5. Some bending knees and/elbows would've made them badass.
    Love how their weapons store on their back onto 21 pegs. The same pegs that can be pushed to make their chests glow.
    Some reason they feel like giant mechanical Battle Beasts. (which is cool!)

    They're about $5 and they come in clear pods. There's supposedly 6 of them out, but can only find 4 .


    Score- 3/5
    Recommended to those with $5 to blow on something different

    Shadowtek Batjet Shadowbot transformer

    This thing is pretty sweet, even if the plastic quality is about the same as previous Batman toys. Found it at TRU for $29.99 (they also had a Batmobile former)

    Transformation is pretty basic and he's got more poseability than I would've thought. Too bad his weapon is a little big & wierd for botmode.
    The batpilot is made of rubber so you can bend him in all positions but he won't stay like that on his own. Has 5 points of articulation (head, shoulders and legs)

    My main complaint with this toy is he does'nt fit too well in the pilot seat when it's in jet mode. It's more of a mech than a true transformer since it does'nt have a head.

    The jet can look a little playskool chubby like but it's solid and pretty fun to mess with. $30 seemed a little steep. 20-25 would've seemed more reasonable
    3.5/5

    Neo Shifters

    Brand new line. ($10 ea) (Neoshifters.com) Giant robots that turn into balls, with smaller robots that launch from their chests that turn into smaller balls. yeah.
    They're about 8-10" tall


    A very cool idea IMO, even for Star Wars battle droid or TFTM protoform kitbashers, but damn this thing is fragile!

    Broke in 3 places and the smaller fig broke in two, and that was just from posing him.
    I rarely break the figs since I usually plan to sell them off one day so using high caution to keep them in mint shape is usually applied.

    But DAMN, be very very VERY careful if you buy one of these! Please take this as a warning.

    I only hope that I bought a defective one becasue Im really tempted to get a second one, but If I have the same issues again then I'll never touch these guys again.

    Found at TRU for $9.99 (also saw them at KMart & Meijers)
    2/5

    I thought batman didn't use guns.
    :lolol 

    And what time is "The Batman" supposed to take place in?
    Even though bruce wayne is a millionaire/billionaire I have a hard time believing he could make a mech like that even today.

    Does anyone know if the Batman Batmobile Shadowbot has an enclosed canopy in robot form? All of the pics that I have seeen show it open and exposed, which bugs me too much to buy it. Thanks in advance for your help.
