ATTACKTIX Battle Figure Game Returns in 2006 With Intergalactic Showdowns

The highly successful ATTACKTIX Battle Figure Game from Hasbro returns in 2006 with an intergalactic line-up that takes this exciting and challenging game to a bigger playing level.

Hasbro will expand the ATTACKTIX playing universe to include more characters from the entire STAR WARS saga, as well as introduce the TRANSFORMERS property to the battle with figures that are “MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE”. And for the first time ever, the ATTACKTIX line will offer an incredible “Battle” pack, pitting the key icons of the STAR WARS and TRANSFORMERS sagas against one another in the STAR WARS vs. Transformers Intergalactic Showdown Pack.

Highlights of Hasbro’s ATTACKTIX line include:

ATTACKTIX Starter sets
(Approximate Retail Price: $9.99, Recommended Age: 6 & up; Available: August 2006)
Building on the success of the launch of ATTACKTIX in 2005, two all new ATTACKTIX Starter Sets will be released in 2006. The STAR WARS Starter Set, which features some of the most popular characters from the epic saga, and the TRANSFORMERS Starter Set, which features everyone’s favorite robots in disguise, provide the basic figures needed for game play. Each set contains four figures, each with unique powers. Two of the figures are exclusive to the pack and will not be available in the booster packs. For those new to ATTACKTIX, the Starter Set provides a great launching point for building a squad.

ATTACKTIX Booster Packs
(Approximate Retail Price: $4.99; Recommended Age: 6 & up; Available: August 2006)
Players can increase the power and strength of their ATTACKTIX battle figure forces, with the addition of figures found in ATTACKTIX Booster Packs. Both STAR WARS and TRANSFORMERS booster packs will include two figures, one rare and one super rare figure. Each pack is blind, making the discovery of which figures are in the pack part of the excitement. There are 18 STAR WARS and 18 TRANSFORMERS figures, each with unique powers and features. Collect them all to build the ultimate squad or to trade with friends.

ATTACKTIX Star Wars vs. Transformers InterGalactic Showdown Pack
(Approximate Retail Price $19.99; Recommended Age: 6 & up; Available: August 2006)
Who would win in battle – Darth Vader or Optimus Prime? Now you can answer the question with the ATTACKTIX STAR WARS vs. Transformers Intergalactic Showdown Pack. Iconic figures from the STAR WARS universe collide with the world of TRANSFORMERS where lightsaber-wielding Jedi Knights compete against the masterful robots with incredible powers. Each pack comes with six battle figures including Darth Vader and Opitmus Prime, as well as the larger battle master figures with more fire power.

(Approximate Retail Price: $12.99; Recommended Age: 6 & up; Available: August 2006)
ATTACKTIX Battle Master Figures are twice as large as the average ATTACKTIX battle figure and bring more action to battles with bigger attacks, increased power, and stronger defenses, making them more difficult to defeat. For example, the AT-RT launches four missiles! Each Battle Master comes with a battle figure so that players can stage a battle right out of the box. In Fall 2006, fans can add the TRANSFORMERS Omega Supreme figure with battle throwing action and accompanying Crumplezone battle figure to their battle line-up. Also set to be released this Fall is the new Republic Gunship with flying action and clone pilot.

BACKGROUND: Hasbro’s ATTACKTIX Battle Figure Game is a revolutionary game in which opponents compete with one simple goal: to be the last one standing! Played without a board or dice, ATTACKTIX figures feature attack action such as firing blasters or lightsaber slashing, and the figure base includes all of the information you need to play the game, including special powers. Easy to start but difficult to master, the ATTACKTIX battle figure game provides action, strategy and fantasy all in one game.
