Toy Fair News Dump: Hasbro Marvel

ToysLet's see what's in the ol' photo pile. Today we look at Hasbro Marvel! Avengers, Spider-Man, Ant-Man, you get the works here.

New Kickstarter: Play With This Too

KickstarterVia Kickstarter: Play With This Too - Lost Protectors.

I got to see the prototype at Toy Fair, and it's involving a lot of ex-Hasbro people making a swappable, Xevoz-ish, MOTUC-esque line of 6-inch action figures inspired by numerous 1980s robot toys. There are some pretty amazing bonus head designs, a BMOG blue exclusive bonus set, and a surprisingly large amount of stretch goals. They passed the 10% mark pretty quickly.

The smallest pledge to get a figure is $55, and the "all in" pledge is $900, which will include any and all hypothetical stretch goal items. There are a lot of figures and it's somewhat difficult to easily determine just how many things $900 will get you, so take a look if you want in on the latest take on action figures from a team of ex-Hasbro people.

Review: Takara-Tomy Transformers Sega Genesis Megatron

Figure of the DayTakara-Tomy Transformers Sega Genesis MegatronSomething 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!

Yes, I bought this because I own this domain name! The Takara-Tomy Transformers Sega Genesis Megatron is a redeco (and partial remold) of Mega Drive Megatron, only it costs more money and is limited to 1,000 units. Until the knock-offs start, I assume. Read on and come back Monday for more!

Transformers Combiner Wars Vote Names, New Triple Changers

TransformersTestyVia the Allspark: Platinum Edition Blitzwing and Astrotrain Revealed! The deco is nothing like we've seen before, bringing them closer to the toys of 1989-1993 than the originals of around 1985. No US release date or price has been confirmed, but I'd bank on at least $80.

Also new and notable, the Fan Combiner Vote enters its final round with the gender and name up for grabs - and this might make things weird, given the best name (Slammoth) runs counter to the fan desire for an all-woman combiner team. Other names include Victorion and Quakebreak, but let's be honest, Slammoth is the best.
