Riddick, aka Diaclone Onebox Cherry Vanette, has arrived at JunkionHQ!
As is becoming the signature of New Age Toy’s Multiverse sub-line, the box features a drawing of Riddick instead of a view of the toy.
Although Diaclone inspired, the box art clearly shows Shattered Glass Optimus Prime “on the comm”.
Inside the box you get the standard instructions, two sets of extra hands, “liquid nitrogen” nozzle and rifle.
Sharp-eyed readers might notice the blue eyes instead of the red shown on the box and in all of the promotional photography. New Age Toys is aware of the issue and will be producing replacement heads which will be shipped out to dealers.
New Age Toys has released a statement (translated by NOCV on TFW2005) about a factory error with Riddick. The eyes were supposed to be red but some were painted blue and some black. They will be sending dealers properly painted replacement heads. On the plus side, now you can mix and match to give McCoy some color contrast if you got the blue-eyed version or make your own Zombie Ironhide with the black-eyed version.
The nannette looks good in black.
Following their pattern, the name presumably comes from Riddick (2013).
