It's not as impressive as the other vehicles, but it is cheaper than the Dinosaur Exosuit available at a store probably near you right now.
Joining these vehicles are two new larger ones - the Ion Orbiter and Alpha Star. Each one was $22.99 at Kohl's and features electronic lights and sounds, if you're into that sort of thing. Or, you can support this blog and my other projects by buying them at Amazon via the links below!
Old people like myself will remember the name "Alpha Star" as one of the shining gems of the Fisher-Price Adventure People toy line in the early 1980s. This new version has no real similarities to it, but it warms the heart to see the name used on a new toy again.

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!

Your friend and mine Reader Matt wrote in today to inform us that Kohl's has begun stocking new-for-2014 Imaginext Space sets, and he was kind enough to send along pictures of his various finds.
The big ship to the right is the Ion Orbiter, and that other sets include the Ion Crab and Ion Scorpion. The Ion Crab's armor is reversible.
