Mattel Creations is reviving the Street Sharks brand for three figures based on characters who never saw release. Street Sharks was an animated series that aired in the mid-90’s as well as a toy line from Mattel. On August 27th at 9:00 AM PST (Noon EST), Mattel Creations will be offering Ripster, Karkass, and Clambo. These characters are designed to fit in with the original Street sharks toy line. Check out some details below.
The Heroes That Could’ve Been
Before they became our favorite animated man-sharks from the ’90s, the Street Sharks started as sketches. Some of the sketches eventually morphed into the toothy crime fighters we know and love, and some never saw the light of day. Until now. Our designers dug through the archives to give three original concepts of Clambo, Karkass, and Ripster their time in the water. And the result is fin-tastic!
Our lead shark, originally imagined as the lead jock and named “Ripley”, wears cleats, a helmet, and sunglasses. His weapon of choice? A football missile perfect for jawesome power passes.
Long before he became “piranhoid,” Karkass had evil in his gills. Featuring a piranha’s toothy grin and removable fish fists, this nemesis is casually dressed in sneakers and a track jacket.
This half-man, half-mollusk is armed to the teeth and all villain. He features a camo shell, multiple blasters, and a biting sneer.
The figures will be priced at $75 each. You can keep an eye on the Mattel Creation Street Sharks Page to get your pre-orders in on Friday. Check out some photos after the jump.
