New Space Toy: Imaginext Alpha Cutter

Right now, Kohl's has Imaginext for 50% off.  As an added bonus, they're getting new stuff like the Alpha Blade (pictured).  It includes a small vehicle and a new sculpt pilot, with a removable helmet and a gun that can be held in his hand or mounted on the vehicle.  Kohl's normal price is $9.99, but on sale for $5 it becomes a real bargain.

The vehicle has a wheel on the bottom, so when you roll the vehicle on the carpet the blade spins around like a UFO or a buzzsaw.  It's a lot of fun!

Older collectors will be delighted at the "Alpha" naming convention, which Fisher-Price used previously in its Adventure People line of the 1970s and 1980s.  I had an Alpha Star as a kid and it's a beautiful toy.

A review of this toy is forthcoming - big kudos to reader Matt for the tip on it being out!

  1. Cool. I want this. Too bad I cannot find any Alpha Blade series near me. The toy design of this sculpt and figurine Reminds me of Star Trek Into Darkness and has that Fisher Price 70s retro look to it.
