Are Toyquests Probots A New Innovation or Passing Fad?

These unique and original football figures from ToyQuest are a series of NFL Professional Robots, or Probots, action figures featuring "automated" versions some of the NFL's top players.

These eight inch figures are fully articulated and feature a unique "flip head" mechanism that switches between the head of the player and their helmeted robot alter egos.

The first Series was released in 2008, just in time for the Christmas holiday season and featured ten different players which were sold at Kay-Bee and Toy R Us stores nationwide.

The NFL Probots are fully articulated and are officially licensed by the National Football League and the NFL Players Inc.

Will they survive the current economic downturn and cut backs by many of the hobbies top manufacturers?

I believe not. These figures seem to have too much of a "novelty" factor to have any real impact on the hobby or collectability.

That said they do look good and are rather unique and well made so may be they will catch on, only time and history will tell their true value.
