Whoah, blast from the past! Flying Fortress and Artoyz are teaming up to create a new line of Teddy Troops, according to The Toy Chronicle. Details are obviously sparse, but according to the images TTC has revealed, there will be at least four colorways of Teddy Troops 2.0. The platform was originally released way back in 2004 by Adfunture. Along the same lines as the Dunny, it came in 3.5 inch and 10 inch sizes, but also had a removable helmet. The first wave was a three-pack of figures designed by Flying Fortress, but Series 2 and 3 contained designs by the likes of D*Face, Frank Kozik, JLED, and more. DIY blanks were also available. But this will be the non-custom release since 2011.
