Fall Toy Update: Alien Collection

The Ben 10 Alien Collection are the bread and butter toy line for Ben 10. For Fall 2010, Bandai is revamping the characters, much like they did with the original aliens. Look for new battle poses, colors, and translucent editions.



Each figure will come with a new DNA card which will have info about the alien.



Most figures will include a mini transluscent alien bust (small statue). The the mini figure with the Omnitrix X 10 to unlock secret codes you can use to… Continue

Fall Toy Update: Deluxe Alien Collection

We like the Ben 10 DX figures, because for a little bit more, you get action figures with more and better features. For fall/winter, Bandai will release a few new characters.

Fall Toy Update: Omnitrix Hero Collection

We've talked about the Ben 10 Omnitrix Hero Collection before. It will be released this fall, but because of the hefty retail price of $33, I don't expect it will be widely available. This set consists of 1 Ultimate Omnitrix, and 10 transluscent Ben 10 mini figures (these are the same ones that came with the 4" Alien Collection releases), it includes an exclusive Alien X mini figure not available anywhere else. Pop the figures on the Omnitrix to unlock special… Continue

Fall Toy Update: Alien Creation Transporter

Alien Creation Transporters were designed for when you need to create some aliens while you've on the run...field conditions. Each transporter comes with two Ben 10 alien mini figures, and we've got two new mini figures coming out this fall. I believe this will be the first appearance of Nanomech, one of the aliens from the Ben 10 Alien Swarm movie. We should have photos of these soon.
