R.E.V.ing Up

Today, while staying home with three sick kids, I saw the new commercial for R.E.Vs. on Cartoon Network. Every time it came on, Marty used our ReplayTV to stop it and yell for me to come and watch. They look pretty slick and will hopefully help sell truckloads of these toys.

I’d love to help create more toys for the line and come up with more characters and stories for it. I still get a kick out of watching the animated comic that comes on the CD included with each toy, and I want to see more of that soon. In the meantime, MasterCollector.com has a page filled with photos of new Playmates toys due out this year. Scroll down to see some R.E.V.s, including Anarkist, who didn’t make it into the first batch.

  1. Today I saw “Big P” on clearance at Wal-Mart. Has this line failed already? I’ve really been enjoying it, and was looking forward to getting Anarkist, and was hoping to see more in the other size ranges, especially the 4″ guys. I think it would be most unfortunate if this line has been scrapped before it has a chance to at least complete its first series.

  3. I have no idea, although it’s hard to say if a toy being on clearance is a bad sign or not. “Sold Out!” is much better, of course, but sometimes toys, books, games, etc., just reach the end of their cycle. Or it could mean no one bought them.

    Only Playmates knows if the toys sold up to their expectations. If so, we’ll see more. If not, it’ll be another line of something else next. That’s how all entertainment industries work. You keep trying new things until something hits.

    Either way, thanks for the note. I agree it would be a shame if the line ended so soon.
