Uncle Milton Tarantula Planet T-Bot 8000 Action FigureThe sheer zaniness to be found in Tarantula Planet is unprecedented in the modern toy market. The people at Uncle Milton got in a couple of killer series and then the line just seems to have up and ended, but not before paying homage to Terminator with T-Bot 8000. This time around, a basic black tarantula got a slightly metallic, quasi-pearly overcoat so without his gear, he's basically a basic bug. With the gear, he recalls 1980s movie cyborgs.

This particular eight-legged freak is defined as the mechanic in the line, and I assume the parts are either meant to be a bionic upgrade or just some random thing to look cool. It snaps on nicely, and the silvery color looks great with some added red paint to bring out the detail.

Uncle Milton Tarantula Planet T-Bot 8000 Action FigureAs always there's no articulation to speak of, so what you see is largely what you get. The action feature is fun, and in this particular character the light-up eyes really fit well with the theme. If you can still find this line, it's probably on clearance and as such you should pick it up. Go ahead, you'll have fun with it. It's a nice toy for kids too, although I wouldn't suggest collecting them all-- just pick one or two, and enjoy. And then kick yourself in 2055 when someone decides this is a rare collectible on whatever replaces eBay during cyborg Ron Paul's fourth term as POTUS. It'll happen.
