MaistoTECH R/C, The Street Troopers Scorpion


Today we’re spending some quick time with one newest MaistoTECH R/Cs, the Street Troopers Scorpion! This highly maneuverable, radio control three-wheeler runs circles around the opposition and even features a soft tip dart launcher hidden within and ready to attack! Using the tri-channel transmitter, up to three vehicles can be in use at any given place and time, and we’ve also thrown in a few extra darts for some added fun! Check out our video below as well as the additional color option for the Scorpion and then find it at your local retailer!




Street Troopers…More exclusives!!!

These two bad a** PT-808’s arrived today, and they are awesome! I especially like the blue one! These two decos and packaging were made exclusively for QVC. The packaging was reduced to save space, so in this version PT-808 is in vehicle form, but he still transforms into Robot Attack Mode to open a can of Whoop A**!!!

and you know it wouldn’t be a Street Troopers post with out a link to our AWESOME STREET TROOPERS COMMERCIAL! (insert corny link segue here)

so we came back from the Memorial Day weekend and low and behold several boxes for us to go through. awww yeah! everyone got excited to peep what kind of freshness awaits us this week. let’s take a peek! looks like the Street Troopers are out in force!

boxes and boxes of Street Troopers…ready to rid the streets of some SCUM!

here’s a closer look at PT-808, this bad boy transforms from vehicle to robot attack mode at the push of a button! he’s kind of cute…in a deadly, killer robot, kind of way!

here we have b-rad going through the boxes trying to find something dope and dimex telling him to get his hands off his booty! (booty in a pirate treasure kind of way.) b-rad is carrying a crapload of different 1:24 scale color schemes for the HUMMER® HX™. who’s that thug in the background? who let him in the design department?

oh yeah that’s ralph, and he’s found a special package of 1:64 scale AllStars Red.

b-rad faints cause he’s been waiting for something good. see how happy we get when the good stuff comes in? ok maybe he’s overreacting a little.

ooooooohhhh!!! colorful, plastic wrappped, die-cast metal goodness!

“whoop, whoop!!! that’s the sound of da police!”

it’s possible you may have found these already on the pegs and it’s also possible these are totally brand new to you, so keep your eyes peeled. sometimes we don’t know until we find ’em ourselves!

Street Troopers Target Exclusive!

Ok, so it’s Wednesday morning and I was running late for work because I had to meet with an electrician at my house, but that’s another story, and I hop on the freeway or should I say noway, as in there’s no way you’re going to get to work in a half an hour like usual. It’s foggy and it’s bumper to bumper traffic, that looks like it’s going nowhere! Excuse the bug remains please and give them a moment of silence…

and as I’m sitting there listening to the radio they’re telling me traffic is at a stand still because there are several lane closures because some people don’t know that you should drive slower in the FOG!!! I look out my window and what would usually be a view of the mountains and rolling hills, and the northbound lanes of the freeway are mysteriously BLOCKED by a thick white wall of FOG. Needless to say there were several multi-car pile ups. GO FIGURE.

I’m glad I was running late or I would have been in the middle of this FOGGY FIASCO.

So off to brighter news, Dimex received an HK package again, WOOHOO!!! We are on a roll this week. I guess that makes up for the lack of posts yesterday. This is a killer one, it’s the STREET TROOPERS PROJECT:66 “TARGET EXCLUSIVE”. That’s right, this particular deco can only be found at TARGET stores later this summer. HAPPY HUNTING!

Oh yeah, occasionally we’ll get asked by HK to supply some visuals for an instruction sheet or packaging and what not. This one is especially funny because it was so last minute, that we just took a quick pic of, well, we’ll just call him “DESIGNER X”, and used him for the illustration reference. Do you know who it is? Send us your comments! Have a great week!
