IonixSpin Master has announced the expansion of its Ionix system of construction bricks with Pokemon and How to Train Your Dragon licenses. Ionix, still a relatively new line for the company, originally launched with the anime tie-in, Tenkai Knights.

Of course, Ionix bricks are Lego compatible. But more than simply compatible, the Ionix system’s specialty is bricks that unfold, or “shapeshift”, into different characters. With Spin Master’s experience in the engineering and development of Bakugan, it seems to me there is strong potential in Ionix licenses.

However, you don’t have to take my word for it. Though the How to Train Your Dragon products won’t be in retail until May or Pokemon until October, we have the first images (plus a sneak peek of some Tenkai Knights) for you below.
