    This is the first time that I've seen this product, so my apologies if this is old news!
    While browsing 'local' stores for new Transformers (POTP) items, I have just noticed a Transformers version of the Flying Heroes (Bumblebee, to be more precise). They can be found in several stores, e.g.

    Transformer Flying Heroes
    Flying Héroes Transformers - Juguettos

    The listings are quite new, but being as how Spain tends to list items a billion years after the official release in other countries, I wouldn't be surprised if this should now be in the 'vintage' section:D .

    Surely a Dragon Flyz revival can’t be far behind!

    Flutterbye Fairies are the street trash of the flying/spinning toy genre. That toy deserved its fate.

    Everyone knows that Sky Dancers are the one true flying/spinning fairy.

    Fuck yeah, Sky dancers were the best.

    "WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Galoob® Toys Inc., of San Francisco, Calif., is recalling about 8.9 million Sky Dancers® flying dolls.

    I remember these type of toys from way back and that one viral video with the fireplace is always good for a lol. Wonder if these are older and we are just now finding them? Seems like newer licensed merch is doing Evergreen designs over RID '15.
