Reimagined 80s collectable toy Robo Force is set for release

After announcing its entry into the toy business in February, The Nacelle Company – the studio behind Netflix’s The Toys That Made Us, The Movies That Made Us, A Toy Store Near You and Behind the Attraction on Disney + – has revealed the first wave of toys to be released with the Robo Force collectable action figure line. The toy will be available for pre-order on NacelleStore.com on 22 April. 
The Nacelle Company previously announced it had acquired 1980s classic Robo Force with plans to revitalise the property with a new television show, books and merchandise, starting with the action figures created by eminent toy designer David Vonner.
Nacelle’s Robo Force action figure line begins with fully articulated versions of Maxx Steele and Wrecker, part of Nacelle’s Very Important Toy Line of 7.5-inch scale figures that come with packaging featuring artwork and a collector-friendly window box. 
In preparation for its toy line launch, The Nacelle Company spent a year acquiring intellectual properties connected to classic toys, including The Great Garloo, Power Lords, Big Loo, and the Marx Toys brand. The second wave of Robo Force figures is set for pre-sale later this year and will include Hun-Dred and SOTA.
