Panda Mony Toys is getting reach to release the first wave of their Alter Nation toyline, which includes Daart, El Ray, Sham, Sabotage and Quillroy, and Albert VII (not shown in this review). These figures are part of a new toyline of mutants that were created by a secret government experiment that mixes animal genetics with human genetics to create better soldiers. These soldiers don’t know that they’re experience and they think that they were just born this way. The story unfolds when they begin to ask about their origins.

This new line offers many great features that you don’t see too often anymore, such as each figure has his own action features, mini-comic books that are included with each figure. This line uses inspiration from other brands such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, while the figure sculpts are much more on the high-end side with great play value and action features.

Thank you to Panda Mony Toys for providing their Alter Nation Daart, El Ray, Sham, Sabotage & Quillroy Figures for review.
