Digital monsters continue to invade the real world with a unique line of Digimon toys for Fall 2008. The action-packed adventures of Digimon Data Squad, the new fifth season from Toei Animation Inc. currently airing on Toon Disney’s Jetix block, live on with Bandai America Inc.’s successful lineup of action figures and role-play toys for boys 4-8. With ever-popular toys like the new Digivice Data Link and action figures featuring DNA metal chips, Digimon remains a popular brand among young boys and continues the franchise’s distinction as one of the longest-running action series in the world.
Digimon Data Squad continues the adventures of 14-year-old Marcus and his partner Agumon, as they challenge the menacing Digimon from the Digital World who are intruding on the human world and causing trouble. For their efforts, the pair is inducted into DATS (Data Squad), a special investigation unit called in to ensure planetary safety. Marcus learns to channel his energy toward defeating the evil Digimon and protecting the human world from ruin. The cast also includes Marcus’ rival, teen prodigy Thomas H. Norstein and his Digimon partner Gaomon, and Yoshino and her plant-type Digimon partner Lalamon.
Digivice Data Link
Kids are gearing up to battle their Digimon digital monsters in the virtual world with the new Digivice Data Link. They can raise, feed and train their very own Agumon or Gaomon character to gain power and strength as they Digivolve from a Rookie to Champion and even to Mega monster. Once the digital monster is strong and tough enough for battle, kids can connect with other Digivice owners via the Data Link’s infrared connection technology. They can battle one another to sharpen their character’s skills and gain additional Digi-DNA, all while saving the universe!
Kids can also use the Data Link’s unique scanner feature to scan DNA metal chips from the action figures and gain even more Digi-DNA powers as well as unlock special secret items. With enough Digi-DNA, kids can purchase exclusive items, as well as unlock new, fiercer characters.
The Data Link comes with seven programmed mini-games to train a digital monster in battling skills and strength training, as well as earn Digi-DNA.
1.5” COLLECTIBLE FIGURES
Each 1.5” figure set comes with 4 collectible Digimon characters, featuring exclusive designs such as a silver color or “dot-matrix” style. These sets include a DNA metal chip that can be scanned with the Digivice Data Link (sold separately) to unlock special secret items and DNA powers for the digital monster.
3.5” Lightning DIGIVOLVING figures
With just a push of a lever, transform the 3.5” Lightning Digivolving figure into its advanced, battle-ready character. Each digital monster also has a DNA metal chip that can be used with the Digimon Digivice Data Link (sold separately) to provide special, secret items and DNA powers.
5” DIGIVOLVING Figures
Kids can play out their monster training skills, just like the humans in the animated series, with the 5” Digimon action figures. Each figure transforms into an advanced digital monster, with clickable pieces and poses. Comes with a collectible DNA metal chip that can be used with the Digimon Digivice Data Link (sold separately).
