Cartoon Network's Generator Rex - New toys and episodes!

Cartoon Network’s hottest new action-adventure series, Generator Rex is back..and this time, he’s got toys.

On the heels of last year’s series debut on Cartoon Network, during which it was a top rated show for both boys 6-11 and kids 9-14, the Generator Rex animated series last week premiered brand new episodes during Cartoon Network’s action block on Friday nights at 8pm (ET/PT).  Along with this broadcast debut, global toymaker Mattel has created a full line of toys based on the series’ main character, 15-year-old Rex that is currently available wherever toys are sold. 
Action Figures!: A range of 4” action figures based on Rex and some of his most powerful weapons like Smack Hands Rex and Battle Saw Rex, as well as villains Van Kleiss and Combat Claws Biowulf 
Deluxe Action Figures and Evo Assortments!  Capturing all the action and thrills of the animated series, fans can use these deluxe toys to act out scenes and invent their own adventures!  Featuring an awesome EVO villain and a jar of Nanite Goo to fill the EVO and watch it ooze, these figures feature the coolest accessories for EVO-fighting!
Vehicles!: Fans can access some of Rex’s awesome, versatile vehicles from the series for the chance to reenact their favorite battle scenes!
Fridays at 8 p.m. (ET, PT)  
Rex is 15, and like most 15-year-old boys, he likes cars, girls, music and sports.  But unlike most 15-year-old boys, he can make his fists the size of boulders, sprout a jet pack out of his back and turn his legs into a lightning-fast motorcycle.  These talents are extremely useful to Providence, a global organization chartered to fight mutant creatures known as E.V.O.s (Exponentially Variegated Organism).  Rex is under their care and is their ultimate weapon.  Generator Rex takes place in the aftermath of a global accident, where microscopic machines known as nanites have merged with every living thing.  For a select few, the nanites mutate their hosts into monstrous creatures called E.V.O.s.  Rex is one such E.V.O., but unlike the monsters he and Providence battle, Rex has control over his nanites.  He alone has the ability to not only control these nanites—allowing him to create amazing mechanical limbs and gadgets that aid him in battle—but also heal E.V.O.s of their mutation.  Rex is joined by a team of characters including his sidekick, a highly intelligent monkey named Bobo Haha, his mentor Agent Six, the brilliant Dr. Holiday and Noah, a regular kid and Rex’s friend.  Tune in Fridays at 8 p.m. (ET, PT) to see Rex face his evil foe, an evil E.V.O. named Van Kleiss, while trying to be a normal teenager.
  • Friday, Feb. 11:  “Waste Land” – Rex and Six go deep sea diving and discover an entire civilization of evo fish—and they aren’t happy!
  • Friday, Feb. 18:  “Lost Weekend” – Rex and newly-graduated cadet Kenwyn are forced to work together.
