Ben 10 Toy News/Status
I'm not sure if any of you are interested in the Ben 10 toys, but I have some news about the status of them. On ben10toys.net or on atamaii's youtube channel, Stu Carter posted a video a couple of days ago about the status of Ben 10 toys. He couldn't say a lot yet or show us pictures. He was able to say that they will be coming out the fall of 2017. I think this is an absurd amount of time to wait for the toys, especially considering the show comes out months earlier. He also said though, that he'll most likely be able to show us pictures of the toys around early 2017. Also, if you didn't know already, the toys will be made by playmates toys. Playmates are the company behind the TMNT toys. I have a very mixed opinions about this. I think we'll definitely be getting a good about of figures, including a good amount of villains. One thing I'm worried about though, is that as TMNT toys get released, the sloppier and lazier the paint gets, and that this might happen to the Ben 10 toys. Another thing to consider is that Scale is going to be an issue. The scale will probably be worse than the 4" line from Bandai. I'm sure we'll also be getting a Rustbucket, considering Playmates makes all sort of vehicle toys for TMNT. I know this line won't be the same as the TMNT but it'll probably be similar because TMNT is the best selling line and they're going to want to repeat that success. I'm also wondering if we're going to get deluxe figures. He also said in the comment of the post on ben10toys.net that they'll be making, at least, the main human trio, Max, Gwen, and Ben, along with ben's 10 aliens.
