Boxed Warriors is inspired by Headstart’s newest collectible toy brand of the same name that is currently available in Australia and launching globally in the coming months. There are 13 warrior characters to collect and unbox, each with different strengths and weaknesses. The series will focus on these quirky warriors and their battles.
The first episode of the series, titled Bite Club, follows warrior Mister Fluffikins in his quest to stop the itch from a gigantic mosquito, which leads him to trespass on Terrorsaur’s turf.
