While some Robotech/Macross fans may be reeling from the news that MAAS Toys is closing their doors, a new challenger raises their sword on the battlefield. MepToys, a new company created by the fans, for the fans, is getting ready to release their first officially licensed Robotech action figure.
In addition to the Robotech license, MepToys will be producing Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs toys, though from the looks of their website, nothing for this franchise has been announced (yet).
Going back to Robotech, MepToys’ first action figure is on the cusp of release and is ready to be preordered today. Available now is their 1/100 scale Zentraedi Commander Breetai. He has an MSRP of $29.99 and will begin shipping May, 2019.
