The Shyallyders, or "Sushi Rangers", Takara Tomy's latest, most delicious, range of Transformers.
Takara Tomy are the guys who are responsible for the vast Transformers universe, and when people start getting bored of seeing robots transform into trucks, things have to get a bit more creative. Introducing the Shyallyders, or "Sushi Rangers", Takara Tomy's latest, most delicious, range of Transformers yet.
There are five "Nigiri Rangers" in the Shyallyders line, comprising of Schallyder Toromaru, Schallyder Eibis, Schallyder Tamakichi, Schallyder Benni and Schallyder Sabyne, who are based on tuna, shrimp, egg, salmon and mackerel nigiri respectively. Their evil nemeses are the three Makizushi Temakids. Check them all out below:
What's probably the coolest thing about all of these guys, is rather than a complicated and time-consuming transformation process, they all transform instantly at the press of a button. Furthermore, each Schallyder comes with a "Battle Dish", which is just a fancy twist on the standard "rock-paper-scissors" game.
More than just a toy-line, the Schallyder's have their own comprehensive back-story and lore, which you can read about on their official English website.
You can pre-order Schallyder's from the Big Bad Toy Store, although quite a few of them appear to already be sold out.
