The other day I was wondering what all crazy knock off toys will be at discount stores for the Christmas season. Last year M.A.R.S. Converters had a VERY Zoids looking batch of robot dinosaurs haunting my local Family Dollar next to their better looking robots. Of course Zoids Wild started up in June this year and Hasbro is planning to bring that to the US sometime soon-ish (there's not much info other than Hasbro is licensing it at the moment). I'm really looking forward to that. I love Zoids, but they can be prohibitively expensive making the US versions the best option in most cases. I think the last version of Zoids available here was the Hasbro version of Zoids Blox which I thought was very neat. There was some small remote control Zoids Tomy released here under another banner to avoid legalities shortly after it was dying here. But that was around 2004-2005? So it's been awhile. I guess a little longer for Zoids Wild toys to debut here isn't much of a hassle. Just I wish it was now instead of later.
If I see those fake ones at Family Dollar again, I might just grab some.
