Tyco® Power Changers
(MT. LAUREL, NJ) January 28, 2003 - Mattel's (NYSE: MAT) Tyco R/C®, the leader in radio control, takes the hot micro category to a new level of play with the Power Changers™ system -- the unique micro R/C packaged in pairs to operate on land or water. The newest additions to the Tyco R/C® "garage" are available now and already racing off store shelves.
Kids can charge 'em…change 'em…drive 'em! Unlike any others on the market, these full-function, four-inch long micros offer more play time with an exclusive rechargeable motor that kids can snap into each of the precision-scale vehicles and boats.
"As the leading innovator in radio control action for the past 18 years, the Tyco R/C® team is always putting a new twist on the category," says Woody Rosenbach, vice president of marketing of Tyco R/C®. "It’s all about the quality of play and Power Changers™ adds a new dimension with the rechargeable, interchangeable motor and the unique ability to go on land or in the water."
For added fun, Power Changers™ accessory vehicles are also available. Kids can choose from the Turbo Hopper, Tank or Robot or collect them all! They all work with the fast-charging interchangeable motor included in the basic two-vehicle set.
Power Changers™, which will also be featured at the American International Toy Fair in February, retail for approximately $25 for the basic sets and operate on four AA batteries, plus one 9-volt battery for the transmitter. (Batteries not included.) The Power Changers™ accessory vehicles are available for $5 each.
