JOY RIDERS with Nebula One Deluxe Set from LK Toys



Chris Lee shares with us the release of "JOY RIDERS", since launched and available online via store.thebeastisback.com! Let's have a closer look, shall we?



Introducing the "NEBULA ONE" DELUXE SET - which includes two character figures and their accessories (Cadet Brett Bradfield with relay transmitter accessory, and Professor Xero Xanthum with security baton accessory), and the "Nebula One Rover" vehicle!



"Joy Riders pays homage to vintage toys and celebrates classic space adventuring themes. Cadet Brett Bradfield is a risk taking mechanic who always seems to get himself into trouble. Xero Xanthum is a top scientist and security expert. Both find themselves assigned to the same remote research station on the planet Delphynia by Captain Cornelius Albacore. The set box is filled with bits of their backstory along with their current mission.

The Nebula One Deluxe Set is just the first entry into the Joy Riders world. We are actively developing new characters for our heroes to meet and interact with."
