Hasbro has released official images and details for their new product line based on the new Netflix Stretch Armstrong animated series. This product line will be exclusive to Walmart stores here in North America.
Primer on the Flex Power system:
Flex Power is an innovative technology that really delivers the “action” in action figures! Each of the Flex Fighter figures has a fleeeexible body that can be stretched like a rubber band, storing energy that can be then be released to power different things (vehicles, disc launchers, rocket launchers, etc.).
The Flex Power Heroes are the core of the “Flex Power” line. The three Flex Fighter figures are Jake “Stretch” Armstrong, Ricardo “Omni-Mass” Perez and Nathan “Wingspan” Park, each with stretchable bodies that power their equipment. These three are available in the basic opening “Flex Power Heroes” assortment with a very unique flexible “TRY ME” package and select figures are available in the Flex Power vehicles, which include two motorcycle-type Flex Power vehicles and the Flex Power Mobile HQ.
In addition to the core Flex Power Heroes, most every other product in the Stretch Armstrong product line has stretchable and flexible elements to it, delivering authentic flextastic fun.
Stretch Armstrong Flex Power Heroes
Each Flex Power Heroes figure has accessories and a signature action. The three core Flex Power Heroes (Stretch Armstrong, Omni-Mass, and Wingspan) have flexible bodies that allow them to “power” their Flex Power gear, enabling them to streeetch, release, and launch discs and missiles. Stretch Monster throws boulders, while Quick Charge and the ultra-mysterious and ninja-like Blind Strike each have flexible projectiles that launch from their unique accessories. It’s flextastic fun!
Stretch Armstrong Stretch Power Vehicle Assortment
Each Flex Power Vehicle comes with a unique vehicle powered by streeeetch action provided by the Flex Power hero. Just strap the character in, pull back to activate, and release the power of flexibility. Stretch Armstrong’s FLEXYCLE zooms across the floor, while Omni-Mass SMASHCYCLE can pound enemies into submission. It’s flextastic fun!
Stretch Armstrong Flex Power Mobile HQ
The Flex Power Mobile HQ comes with a Stretch Armstrong figure and a whole lot of flextastic action that can be activated in and around the vehicle. By putting the figure into position, kids can streeetch and release to activate the boulder-launcher on the top of the vehicle, the removable disc launcher in the cockpit, or practice their targeting ability on the flip-down doors.
