Children's toy `Sky Claw' from Hasbro's `Visionaries' series of toys with holographic elements; contains plastic pieces that can be put together to make a model car in which action figures can be placed; contains 2 parts called `Magical, Dual, Holographic Power Images' (which `add twice the battle energy to prey upon the enemy!); adhered to these 2 plastic parts are identical, green, multiple-exposure stickers that show either an eagle or dragon in flight, depending on angle of light; box also features a small, rainbow-colored, holographic, multiple-exposure, foil sticker that shows a wizard either in full view or a close-up of his face, depending on angle of light.
Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
