When Playsometoys announced the Macinbot Classic last year, Apple Fanboys and non fanboys which including us went crazy for a release date or pre-order date, to say the least. TODAY brings good news, maybe not for your wallet as Playsometoys have announced that the pre-order is now OPEN!
The stand out from Toy Soul 2016 was this “Macinbot” powered by Hong Kong’s new toy start-up Playsometoys. Most classics are timeless and Playsometoys have acknowledged a timeless design and created Macinbot! Definitely a great take on the classic MACINTOSH Classic Desktop ( some youngsters won’t remember the classic shape, Google it) Macinbot will be held together with magnets too, so you can pose and rest it like a mini Mac desktop. We are glad they have designed it like this as it will bring more scope to display in various ways.
Like Playsometoys said “Rebirth of a classic design”. Playsometoys “Macinbot” isn’t the first company to use a classic console/computer design as a figure but no doubt Macinbot is a standout and one that makes others say they wished they produced such a cool figure. Playsometoys have quoted “soft spot for classic product designs from the 80’s and 90’s” we are excited to see what other designs they have up their sleeves, we are suckers for nostalgic collectables.
