Max Steel Toys
The Max Steel Toys are making their debut in August. From action figures with special bases to battle figures with their own arena, there’s quite the assortment. Here’s a sneak peek at what to expect.
MAX STEEL™ Deluxe Turbo Battlers* (with Ultralink™) Basic Figure
Deluxe Turbo Battlers are all about Max Steel competition and include special base stands that spin the figures to battle opponents. The object of play is for kids to try and hit their opponents’ sweet spot, a trigger that, after several hits, will send the figure flying off of its base indicating the winner. To unleash fighting capabilities activate the spinning battle base with the retractable pull-string, it will go faster as pulled. After the base has been primed the figure’s side edges light up with built-in LEDs and, when spun, create a “Turbo energy” sphere effect. Now it’s time for the rivalry to begin as the Turbo Battlers race toward one another in a skirmish of speed! Figures come with both energy blades and battle bumper blades that can be interchanged for cool customization. Includes figure, base, two energy and battle bumper blades.

The ultimate battle arena for Deluxe Turbo Battlers lets kids partake in epic competition with a specially curved play set that is designed to amp up Turbo Battlers action! To begin the match, simply place Turbo Battlers over the wall and into the arena and activate rotation with the two included spin-and-stunt launchers. Next, use the arenas battle flippers to knock opponents away from the perimeter while containing the action within the sets walls. To make an even bigger battle, the set’s walls can be removed allowing it to be connected to other arenas enabling multiple fights!
