Action Toys New Machine Robo figures aka GOBOTS revealed

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

I'm amazed to see this having happened at all since I didn't think they even could do so at first, what with the rights having been split between three different companies, two of which being rival companies even.

I'm right there with ya! How many things in life are overly complicated due to regulation or IP rights holding. But, since we actually got a VW Beetle MP Bumblebee, I like to think anything is possible. This only furthers the hope!

On the other hand, might there have been some rights lapse or other timing? (Actually, I'm not that curious. This is one of the reasons I have no desire to become a lawyer...)

Having asked around about this, this appears to be a case of "Action Toys just did it on their own to see if they could get away with it since no one at Warner Bros. would really care that much to make any kind of fuss over it".

So... yay for WB's apathy? :P

*chuckle* Sure, why not? Better to ask for forgiveness? I suppose it is just a Cykill face at this point. And Warner may have other issues to deal with anyway. (Discussion for another thread.) I might have to get this Cykill now. I have their Leader-1. Might as well get the pair...

I don't have too many regrets in life, but searching for Machine Robo on ali express is definitively one of them.
