    I searched and didn't find anything.

    I was wondering, has any company ever done an olympic rings figure. obvioulsly it's never going to make it into the comics, but I'd like to see the unique figure.

    Actually I'm thinking something like the Olympic rings tranforming, maybe into the torch, or into a robot holding the torch. doesn't have to be from this Olympics, could be from an older olympics, Just thought it would be a cool novelty.

    Moderators, I just realised this was in the wrong section, can you move it to the transformers toys?

    Actually, I think you were right the first time :) 

    Toyark's more for your non-Transformers items anyhow.


    To my knowledge, there is no Olympic rings Transformer. The Olympic Powers that be are very specific about what the logo is used for, it seems. I know they turned down a statue of a local Olympic athlete because the image of his medals looked too much like the rings. I cannot see how something like that could be turned down but a robot could be approved. It's a thorny licensing thing.

    We'll if it's the FuWa you're looking for, we've got those in abundance everywhere for about $15, set of all 5 FuWas.
