A line of articulated 6-7-inch action figures with 5mm compatibility and Masters of the Universe Classics-style articulation is in the works with no known pricing or ETA. The figures are said to be designer toys, and from the look of things they take some direction from Transformers Pretenders toys of old.
Following a loathsome trend, rather than post stuff on their own web site PWTT is posting a ton of new images and art to Tumblr. Astroblast and Desolator art are up now and they do look fairly ambitious. The line itself has no name as of yet, and they do seem a lot more intricate than most current strains of indie and Kickstarter-derived action toys.
Rik Alvarez, Mark Wong, Steve Redinger, and BMOG chief Trent Troop are on board. These are guys who have worked with Hasbro, Diamond Select Toys, and others in the past. Their first project - shown in a drawing stage - is on Tumblr and named Astroblast. It's a 5mm-compatible robot figure that does not seem to transform. (Mr. Alvarez is known for his work on Transformers and in those collector circles.)
"You're on your own. No one to come for you. No one to help you. No one to hear you scream. Slender: The Arrival is the official video game adaptation of Slender Man, re-created from Mark Hadley's original nerve-shattering sensation. Developed in collaboration with Blue Isle Studios, The Arrival features a brand new storyline, improved visuals, great replay value, and most importantly, survival horror at its best."
