Yeah, they're under 10 and love toilet humor. They're fine with Marvel Legends, but those are generally pretty durable

Do you think these would be OK for kids to play with in terms of durability? I want to get these for my nephews, but I haven't bought any of their figures before so don't know how delicate they are.
As AdrienVeidt mentioned these are pricier than what one would usually consider giving to kids

Price aside however, the Astrobots, including Krivo; are big, bulky and plenty durable. I imagine they can hold up well to child's play.

However, even if the plastic quality stays the same, the toilet bots have more spindlier designs, so that might compromise the durability.

Nice! Good to see them finally show up. With the graphic novel finally showing up towards the end of 2022 and these 2 around the end of the year as well, hopefully the upcoming releases start trickling out quicker. I wonder if there was a holdup for some specific reason, because these 2 seem to have been ready for some time, and we've seen the next 2 series of robots in early 2021 (if not even 2020, can't recall), so I assume there must have been some holdup.

They actually did mention in some comments I saw that Apollo will be getting reissued. From the sounds of it, Argus and the drones won't because they said these are still fairly widely available. Good for those that missed him, those original bots are fantastic, probably my favourite figures I own (which I have 3 versions of, tempted to possibly get that special edition green one too).

Nice to see the fembots finally go up for order, though I have to say I'm not to jazzed about the color choices. Still, definitely going to get both.

I imagine a large part of it was Covid, cities are still being locked down in China until even recently.

I asked them on FB about Hyperion, Vulcan and Saturn, the 3 bots in the picture below and they said there should be news next week; if its updated prototype shots or even a preorder I don't know; but like you said it seems this line is picking up speed again. Very much looking forward to seeing more.
