Back again to share one of my other great hauls I got from the wonderful place of transformerland!
The toy company is called "TRENDMASTERS
" based in ST. LOUIS, America. They made some transforming robot toys in 1992 titling the toy line series "MASTERBOTIX
". Just like my "TEK TOYS
" post they made the Kats, Reptiles, and Insects also in their own marketing style with different packaging and series names. The ones I will feature are mainly the ones I got here at TFL and not the whole MASTERBOTIX series.
Without further due here is my TRENDMASTERS collection!
Here they are all together sealed on cards except for 2 boxed ones I will show around at the end.
The REPTILIBOTS, ANIBOTS, and WINGED-BOTS all together in alt modes.
The REPTILIBOTS, ANIBOTS, and WINGED-BOTS all together in robot modes.
These were taken separately when I was just needing 1 more which was the "GRASSHOPPER" to complete all 10 WINGED-BOTS!
Interesting thing about these 2 insects was, TRENDMASTERS added them to the 8 collectable insects to make 10 collectable insects. The first 8 are originally always 2 teams of 4 members from the original Japanese toy line and then later adapted for worldwide international versions that are most common. However these 2 insects have a bit of history, the red Dragonfly does is a original mold and design by toy company MARK and had its own original insect toy line series. The green Grasshopper most of us know it is a retool and not as high quality made familiar toy mold/character from the Japanese toy company "TAKATOKU TOYS
" that made the "BEETRAS
line in 1985 and the toy being "BEET-VADAM
" and later as Hasbro's Transformers, Decepticon, Deluxe Insecticons, Ransack.
These 3 teams didn't receive any individual names unlike the TEK TOYS versions of them which is odd but I think it's also a nice way to use your imagination to give them your own original names.
