PowerCon ’12 Armchair Coverage
Weaponeers of Monkaa

But wait, there’s more! Spy Monkey Creations chose Powercon to debut their newest line: Weaponeers of Monkaa! Weaponeers expands on SMC’s fantastic Armory Series and elevates the company to a full-fledged action figure producer. Here’s a quick look at the reveals and lots of links.

SMC first announced Weaponeers of Monkaa a few days prior to the show and launched a new site that featured several chapters of story to familiarize us with the characters and their back stories.

After the show debuted, the first look at the figures leaked out via this Instagram pics from George Gaspar via his Twitter.

More pics would soon follow including these great builds from the GODBEAST at October Toys (check out that Oct Toys thread for more great pics from SpookyAMD & Venenor)! JonWes jumped in with a sweet Crystar build in the Weaponeers of Monkaa Thread at He-Man.Org! And I’d be remiss if I didn’t point you to these Twitter pics from fireball13z!

SMC also sent out some early review samples. I’ll have a review of these guys here at IAT in the next few days, but two great sites are already on the ball! Phil Reed of Battlegrip.com already has two great quick looks and DocRampageo of DoomKick.com is the first reviewer out of the gate with this great review!

Look for more here at IAT on the Weaponeers of Monkaa soon! For now, here’s the full press release and promo images from Spy Monkey Creations:

  1. These dudes are like Battle Beasts combined with Transformers by way of Micronauts. The line’s got such a great 80’s vibe going that should prove irresistible for a lot of folks out there. You guys rock, SMC!

  2. i’ll be interested to see more builds… forgive the various guys already doing custom builds w/ these, but i don’t know if i’ve seen the “wow factor” yet, and i predict it’s there. i don’t know though, maybe i’m being too picky.

  3. I’ll definitely be at least picking up Palidar and the weapon packs corresponding to his colorway.

  4. Very nifty line with boatlaods of potential! *Sigh* Shame I can’t serously commit to sweet new properties like this.

    If I wasn’t tied up with so many other lines and gearing up for the big year-end blitzes that Hasbro, Mattel, and Takara are so fond of, I’d consider collecting this whole line. As it is, I’ll probably restrict myself to the odd weapons pack or two.

  5. hopefully their sales model will be a little more forgiving… i know onell does various “drops” of glyos that are never offered again — or the matty “sold out” at 12:07pm” sales. as long as people keep orderin’ them and they keep makin’ them i don’t think there is any big rush to get them all now — the end of the year pushes are kind of insane —

  6. I have zero artistic talent but these toys make me feel like I have a shot at least lol, I have been having a blast building figures, taking them apart and doing it all over again.

    Anyone on the fence should at least get 1 or 2 and just try them out.

  7. Can’t say I care about the figures all that much, but I really want to see how the Close Combat armory sets look when integrated into the other armory pieces! We need new weapon builds!

  8. it’s a shame they don’t seem to include the torso piece with the translucent figures that the others seem to have (I know it’s a character thing but the option would be nice)
