Transformers Topspin Revealed on Sky Shadow Packaging

Sky ShadowTransformersVia Tformers: Titans Return Leader Skyshadow First In Hand Photos Of Overlord Pretool!. While calling out a whopping four modes on the box would be interesting in and of itself - as is the Titan Master partner name "Ominus" - the real surprise was Topspin's confirmation on the back.

Nintendo Wii U Downloads This Week

Nintendo Wii UMetroid: Other M This week's batch of titles on the eShop: Teslapunk and Bridge Constructor Playground.

Up for the Nintendo Wii U retro library: Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon from the Nintendo DS and Metroid: Other M from the Nintendo Wii. Interestingly, Other M has never been unavailable here around Phoenix - numerous stores still have copies at full price, unsold, never marked down. I got a used one for $6.00 about a year ago. It's an OK game and works well as a sexism simulator.

Figure of the DayPlaymobil Wild Life 5559 Inflatable Boat with ExplorersSomething new every day-- unless it's old! Our 16bit.com Figure of the Day continues for you lucky people! Is there anything we won't cover in this column? Probably not!

Otters! The Playmobil Wild Life 5559 Inflatable Boat with Explorers is new for the year, but I don't see many of it around. So far these otters are slated for a minimum of 3 different sets, and they all have the same pose - there's a $4 set with 2 otters, a fishing pond with 1 otter, and this boat. The boat was the least marked-up so I got it. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more!

PokeballMuscleVia Super7: "In space, no one can hear you scream.." Arriving on December 9th.. There are 4 sets of 3 figures each, and based on previous sets these will probably be about $6 each, or $2 per figure. The sculpting looks much improved over the very good He-Man lines.

There are very few - perhaps no - other Harry Dean Stanton or Yaphet Koto figures on the market today, so here you go kids. Ash even has the rolled-up magazine.

Playmobil 9211 Schwabach Goldbeater Exists

GoldbeatitPlaymobilVia the PCC and elsewhere: "Der GoldschlŐger" Sonderfigur von PLAYMOBIL. The German Playmobil Goldbeater celebrates the 900th anniversary of Schwabach, a town you've never been to. The figure is █2.99 and currently deliverable only to Germany. If you're looking to get one and live elsewhere, you'll need a friend to do some muling for you or you might want to sign up for the Playmobil Collector's Club to check for future availability.

Transformers Vote - Who's the Next Prime?

GoldbeatitTransformersVia Hasbro elsewhere: Power pf the Primes Fan Vote. Previously whispered of as "Prime Wars," Power of the Primes seems to be a catch-all opportunity to bring leaders (or to promote characters to leader roles) in both the comics and the toys. Call me curious! Arcee, Hound, Star Saber, Optimus Primal, and others are all on deck according to the teaser graphic - which probably means new toys are coming, too. After all, who didn't love good ol' "Unknown Evil"? More as we have it!

And if there's one thing American fans want to think about in January, it's about elections for leadership.
