Remember the Flying Fairies craze a few years back? (Wait, that was 8 years ago!?!). Boys got their own version too (as dragons).
It just so happens that the toys are coming back in a major way by Character Options, a toy manufacturer for the European region. Currently released for DC superheroes as Flying Heroes, the company has acquired a license from Hasbro to deliver a Transformers version of these flying toys.
While not much is known about it yet, the only given description is how the toy works:
“Flying Heroes gives kids the power to make their favorite heroes fly. To launch their favorite characters, kids simply pull back the rip cord handle from the base of the launcher to see the wings extend to take flight. The harder they pull the cord, the faster the heroes spin and the higher they fly. This kid-powered toy requires no batteries and is the perfect collectible for ages four and over.”
We expect characters such as Evergreen Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, and Starscream to appear on this line.
