Hasbro Unveils Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters Figures

‘Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters’ made it’s streaming debut on Netflix last week and now Hasbro has released the first images of the upcoming figures.

The series ‘Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters’ follows teenager Jake Armstrong and his two best friends, Nathan Park and Ricardo Perez, after they are accidentally exposed to an experimental chemical that forever changes their seemingly normal lives and transforms them into unlikely heroes who embark on a series of adventures. The show includes the voices of Steven Yeun, Scott Menville, Ogie Banks, Wil Wheaton, Felicia Day, and Walter Koenig.

The Stretch Armstrong toys will be exclusive to Walmart in North America and at various retailers throughout Latin America. The toys introduce a new way to play with ‘Flex Power’. Each Flex Fighter figure features a flexible body that can be stretched and when released powers an accessory or vehicle. Each of the main characters of the show are included in the first ‘Flex Power Heroes’ assortment. 

Stretch Armstrong Flex Power Heroes
Each Flex Power Heroes figure has accessories and a signature action. The three core Flex Power Heroes (Stretch Armstrong, Omni-Mass, and Wingspan) have flexible bodies that allow them to “power” their Flex Power gear, enabling them to streeetch, release, and launch discs and missiles. Stretch Monster throws boulders, while Quick Charge and the ultra-mysterious and ninja-like Blind Strike each have flexible projectiles that launch from their unique accessories. It’s flextastic fun!

Stretch Armstrong Stretch Power Vehicle Assortment
Each Flex Power Vehicle comes with a unique vehicle powered by streeeetch action provided by the Flex Power hero. Just strap the character in, pull back to activate, and release the power of flexibility. Stretch Armstrong’s FLEXYCLE zooms across the floor, while Omni-Mass SMASHCYCLE can pound enemies into submission. It’s flextastic fun!

Stretch Armstrong Flex Power Mobile HQ
The Flex Power Mobile HQ comes with a Stretch Armstrong figure and a whole lot of flextastic action that can be activated in and around the vehicle. By putting the figure into position, kids can streeetch and release to activate the boulder-launcher on the top of the vehicle, the removable disc launcher in the cockpit, or practice their targeting ability on the flip-down doors.
