What is Dragonball again?

Ah, as usual, there’s not much to report on the Irwin front. If you’ve been to Planet Namek or the FUNImation DBZ site recently, you know that Irwin has plans to release a Time Capsule playset with an exclusive Trunks figure, which is pretty cool. Perhaps they’ll have it on display at Toyfair this weekend.

However, in the meantime, here’s some more information for all you Transfans out there, direct from Hasbro:

TRANSFORMERS: There are robots, and then there are ROBOTS IN DISGUISE. The original toy robot that took the world by storm in the ’80s comes full circle with the return of ROBOTS IN DISGUISE. Hasbro is bringing back the “classic” theme for TRANSFORMERS right down to the car-to-robot transformation. Plus, in the fall, Fox Kids will begin airing all-new TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE programming six days per week. Approximate retail: $4.99-29.99; Availability: August 2001.

I’m guessing that this means that they are dubbing Car Robots from Japan, and importing the toys for release here, which would be really cool, but not quite as cool as a completely new series. We’ll find out for sure at Toyfair, and you will see it here before you see it anywhere else!
