New Micronauts Toys!!!

I love the original Mego Micronauts! It's probably my favorite toyline from my youth. I'm sure I won't be able to afford these exclusives, but hopefully they will lead to a new retail line of figures.

From The Hollywood Reporter --

This year, one of the biggest things Hasbro will be bringing to San Diego Comic-Con will be very small indeed.

Ahead of the announced Micronauts movie — part of a shared universe with other Hasbro properties including Transformers and G.I. Joe — the toy manufacturer will be resurrecting the original Micronauts toy line as an exclusive for the annual southern California pop culture event in July.

The Micronauts Classic Collection set is a limited-edition collection featuring recreations of figures from the Mego toyline that existed between 1976 and 1980. The set will feature three characters: Galactic Warrior, Pharoid and Orbital Defender, each with multiple points of articulation and interchangeable parts, with the packaging for the set featuring new artwork from Ken Kelly.

The set will debut at Comic-Con, with a limited number also being available online at HasbroToyShop.com after the show and at Fan Expo Canada (held Sept. 1-4 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center).

Oh man, I hope these get more than a con exclusive release!

Never got into the Micronaughts but it was due more to me putting my time and efforts towards Star Wars and other toys as a young lad. They were great looking toys and I always wanted them but it wasn't to be. Good post.
