Star Wars Review: Han Solo (Endor, The Retro Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Han Solo (Endor, The Retro Collection). The skin color of modern retro guys aren't as good as the originals, but the sculpt is excellent and so is the coat. Given the coat covers most of this somewhat hard-to-find 1984 figure, I'd say it's worth getting aboard the "good enough" train. Toot toot. Read the whole review.

New or Newish Healey Made Raider Saturday

GlyosRaiderVia the Glyos News Dump: Healey Made New Raider on Saturday 5/27. Specific details were not shared, but we were previously shown a Raider (Shadow) remake along with an Assassin, and as far as I know those are probably the next two figures. It would be my guess, anyway.

Star Wars Review: HK-87 (The Black Series)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,031: HK-87 (The Black Series). It's based on some old McQuarrie concept sketches for bounty hunters, which means I like it a lot. There's a good reason it looks like classic Star Wars, and I dig the mismatched colors and nifty blaster. Read the whole review.

Newish! The Hasbro Transformers Authentics Alpha Starscream Action Figure showed up at a grocery store here in Arizona last month and it's a plenty big figure for the money. His joints are a little wobbly, but it's otherwise a pretty nifty slightly-different take on a classic figure. Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

ROM Reprints Return to Marvel

ComicsROMVia Marvel: Rom, the Greatest of the Spaceknights, Returns to Marvel Comics in All-New Omnibus Collections. Being a Hasbro (formerly Parker Bros.) property that was previously at IDW, reprints of the old stories were not likely - but here it is. You can get an omnibus edition in January with #1-#29 and an issue of Power Man and Iron Fist in there, or a reprint of issue #1 in September.

Does this mean anything for Transformers, Micronauts, G.I. Joe, or others? Probably not. But it's a nice start. For the kids out there, ROM was a bigger, fancier electronic robot toy from the 1970s that ran as a comic until 1986 - which was pretty good for there being no toy to sell.

New to Me: Surf Kraftwerk from The Routes

Music The Twang MachineVia The Routes: The Twang Machine is an album I had missed. It's pretty spectacular, if you like Japanese surf bands and Kraftwerk, which nicely intersects two of my favorite things. Iggy Pop played some of it on "Iggy Confidential" and it's really good. Check it out. This is, of course, not the only surf covers of Kraftwerk that came out of Japan. Surf Coasters fans already enjoy "Neon Lights" from the album Surfdelic, which is great.

Also of note, this Friday sees the release of AJJ's first full album since 2020's "Good Luck, Everybody." Disposable Everything comes out on digital and vinyl and whatever else there is, including some store exclusive variants. (I'm hoping to score the Zia Records Arizona Sunset version myself.)

Posted 10 years ago today! The Onell Design Glyos Sonesidar Mimic Armorvor Action Figure took a figure that I think everybody loved at the time, and then gave him some great bright colors. It's one of the greats - but aren't they all? Read on, and come back tomorrow for an all-new review!

Review: Hasbro The Adventures of Indiana Jones Indiana Jones

Figure of the DayHasbro The Adventures of Indiana Jones Indiana JonesSuper7Something new every day-- unless it's old! Our exciting Figure of the Day continues for you lucky people! Is there anything we won't cover in this column? Probably not!

This figure is not easily available - but even if it were, you may want to reconsider it. This series of figures really hinges on Hasbro The Adventures of Indiana Jones Indiana Jones being good - and he ain't great. The Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade Target and Shared exclusive versions are starting to hit, and... well, they're a little soft on details. The whip is too big to hold well and is kind of ridiculous. There are some odd color choices. The head sculpt doesn't look like the original toy at all. As much as I would like to say something like "it's really a shame this figure is tough to find," I think you might find - to paraphrase Mr. Spock - that 'having' is not so pleasing as 'wanting.' Much like the quality of most of the Indy (the character) figures in 2009, this one does not make me want to spend $150+ on additional figures right now. Do read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Analogue Duo Pre-Orders Star Tomorrow

TurboGrafx16DuoVia Analogue: Analogue Duo. Preorder May 19 8am PDT at $249. Available in limited quantities. Shipping 2023.

With wireless controller, HuCard, and CD compatibility right out of the box, this should be exciting for fans of this console - but it doesn't boast OpenFPGA, so it might be even more niche than the NT, Mega Sg, and the like. I've found their systems to be largely fantastic - if expensive - although not that expensive when adjusted for inflation in some cases. A few years ago Limited Run Games announced a reissue of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and I have little doubt that's the killer app for this, if and when it ever goes up for order. I have to assume it'll be soon now that this console is finally making it out.

Star Wars Review: 4-LOM (The Retro Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: 4-LOM (The Retro Collection). The original isn't too expensive, and it isn't changed too much either. But if you don't have the original, this is a pretty good substitute with the requisite slightly washed-out sculpted detail. But hey, what matters is the robes cover most of it and they did a good job replicating the old fabric, so you'll probably love it. Read the whole review.
