Sponsor News: Oritoy launches "Acid Rain" line of transformable robots and 3.75" pilots!

BWTF has received some exciting news from sponsor Bigbadtoystore:

We've just listed some really cool 3.75" Scale transforming figures from a company called Oritoy - the line is called Acid Rain. They have done incredible work on this line and the line should be appealing to a cross section of GI Joe, Transformers, ThreeA, and other military, mecha, and 3.75" fans. If you feel these would be a good match for a portion of the people that frequent your site, we would really appreciate it if you could promote the Acid Rain line.
