Vortex

Description:

The Manimals were intended to be the next phase of the "Lunartix Empire Star Brigade" figures. Six figures were planned for late 1994 - but the G.I.Joe line was cancelled before these figures hit the stores. These first six manimals were so close to being released that advertising for them appeared on the back of later 1994 packaging.

Each a different kind of alien, all the Manimals had a transforming ability. In addition, the Manimals were larger in size than regular 3 3/4" figures.

Unlike the similarly cancelled Ninja Commandos, a few dozen loose and perhaps one dozen carded of the original Manimals samples are available in the collector's market.

The mold was again to be re-used in 2001 to create a new version of Vortex as a Kay-Bee exclusive. KBToys cancelled the release of this figure due to low sales on the other Manimal figures.
