Super Gyro-Spin Action Drops Foes!Description By now, MOTU was on its last legs and these bizarre figures were one of the last attempts to reinvigorate the line. Although the attempt didn't pay off, we were left with a very unique set of figures in Twistoid (pictured here) and Rotar! Mattel had also designed a vehicle called the Gyrattacker which was intended to carry Rotar (or Twistoid) and launch them into combat. This vehicle features in the minicomic, but the toy line was cancelled before it could be released.Features They spin! Sort of! Unfortunately, their ability to spin like a top was hampered by the imbalance presented by their sculpt. AccessoriesScytheStand (in multiple parts)MinicomicsEnergy Zoids
