MICRONAUTS EXCLUSIVE FIGURE
Palisades Toys will be introducing faithful reproductions of vintage Micronauts action figures, and Dynamic Forces will be offering an exclusive figure.
Dynamic Forces will be offering an exclusive Time Traveler action figure this summer. Featuring glow-in-the-dark enhancements, and limited to 5,000 pieces, the figure is only available through Dynamic Forces and it's free with orders placed at www.dynamicforces.com.
"The Micronauts were the only toy line in the late 70's that competed head-to-head with the Star Wars toy line Kenner had launched and held their own," said Michael Horn, president of Palisades Toys. "They remain prized among collector's for their engineering, back-story and over-all coolness."
"When Mike told us they were bringing back the Micronauts, I knew that Dynamic Forces had to be a part of the launch," said Nick Barrucci, President of Dynamic Forces. "We knew that an exclusive figure, available to our customers, was the right way to go."
