Many of you, like myself, know Go Hero for their Vinyl Mechabot series of toys. They released a few different vinyls before radically shifting gears with the announcement of their Buck Rogers license. No this is not the hairy-chested Buck Rogers from the 80s, this is from the classic films that premiered almost 80 years ago.
The 1/6 Scale Buck Rogers figures feature an all new 1/6 scale body created by Go Hero. The accessories will be a vareity of media, and each figure will feature a sound chip that can play mp3 files of classic Buck Rogers radio shows (or whatever you decide to load onto it).
Also announced was the Ray Harryhausen 1/6 scale Sinbad w/ Homunculus and Perseus w/ Bubo. Apparently Harryhausen had written sequels for all of his films and now Go Hero is making toys for them.
It looks like there are big things in store for Go Hero. But what about the robots?
I talked to Go Hero owner Steve Forde, and he said that the idea is that proceeds from more profitable ventures would help fund new Vinyl creations, and maybe even some diecast.....
