Cartoon Network's Ben 10 is one thing that I'd thought I'd missed due to the age of my kids, and then it got rebooted and became a big hit here at Rock Father HQ with a great show on Cartoon Network, some awesome toys from Playmates Toys and a pretty entertaining video game.. Now comes news that the coolest alien-powered kid hero has a new DVD collection coming home, with Ben 10: Omni-Tricked arriving on September 18, 2018. Fans can revisit the adventures from Cartoon Network’s hit animated series with 16 action-packed episodes and a 44-minute special. Following Ben and his family as they go on a cross-country road trip, fans will embark on a fun, extraterrestrial animated journey. Officially, this is Season One, Volume Two.
When Ben 10 launched the first time around, my wife and I were still some years off from becoming parents, and thus the multi-dimensional adventures escaped us for a bit. While the series has evolved over the past decade and a half, 2017 brought the opportunity for a fresh start and a new series of Ben 10 was born - the perfect opportunity for a new generation of kids to enjoy the adventures of 10-year-old Ben Tennyson, his cousin Gwen and their grandfather, Max. With the power of the Omnitrix on his wrist, Ben can transform himself into one of 10 different alien creatures as the family embarks on great adventures in their Rustbucket - a combination RV/laboratory. With a great new show comes some great new toys, and Ben 10 is being handled by Playmates Toys - the same team behind the long-running success of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the recent Voltron: Legendary Defender collections.
The crew at Playmates Toys is rolling into the North American International Toy Fair with an expanded portfolio this year, moving well-beyond the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles offerings that they're known for, and into the realm of DreamWorks Television Animation's Voltron Legendary Defender and Cartoon Network's refreshed Ben 10, Look for photos and details soon, but check out an initial overview of what will be shown at the Playmates Toys booth, #2469, at Toy Fair from February 18-21, 2017.
