Review: Hasbro Xevoz Franken'Punker Action Figure

Figure of the DayHasbro Xevoz Franken'Punker Action FigureSomething 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!

Loads of options! The Hasbro Xevoz Franken'Punker Action Figure is one of those figures that toy snobs will always remind you could have been yours quite cheaply, but you skipped it, because you're a bad human being. He had tons of gear, multiple heads, weapons galore, and even spare arms, legs, and hands - all for about ten bucks. And you didn't buy one. So read on, and come back soon for more!

That's So Ravens - Four Horsemen Figures Kickstarter Re-Delayed

KickstarterThat's So RavenVia Kickstarter: FINALLY!!! THE FACTORY HAS GIVEN US A SCHEDULED SHIP DATE! While we were previously told March, and then July, now we're hearing a September 28 ship date from China. For those of you who do a lot of toy shipping from China (like I do) you know that it takes about 6 weeks - if you're lucky - for the finished product to hit US shores. From there it takes a week or two to get to the destination (in this case New Jersey), and then they have to inspect the goods before packing them up and shipping them out.

Just so you can not be angry when Halloween rolls around, consider this: the Four Horsemen sometimes take 3-7 weeks to get orders out when their products are in stock, and these are not yet here. With that in mind, it seems unlikely (thanks to 1,510 backers - a lot more than their releases tend to get with Power Lords and Outer Space Men) that there is any way that the Horsemen will have figures in their hands until at least Thanksgiving. With the holiday there may be delay getting boxes sorted and packed - plus the sheer quantity of other items probably means that Christmas may be a sensible ETA for existing Kickstarter orders.

The Horsemen also posted that new orders are welcome for these figures starting September 15 for everybody. Existing backers can place new orders on September 14, with a 10% discount. With that in mind, it seems extremely optimistic that all new orders can be delivered before the day with the tree and the fat man in the red suit, but it's entirely possible. Just keep your expectations in order - and this is an optimistic scenario assuming that the figures don't have more packaging-related delays.

It's a fascinating thing to see this level of transparency, particularly given that you get to see what happens when a company decides to make sure that the details are perfect, rather than adhering to an artificial deadline. I think Nintendo once said something to the effect that delays are temporary, but your fans will remember a bad product forever.

BMOG Kickstarter Shipping Update

BMOGThat's So RavenVia BMOG Kickstarter: Shipping Update has the following to say:

"Just a quick update.

My vehicle issues have been resolved and shipping is resuming. We're sending out the physical rewards for backers up to the Double Down backer level.

The unique rewards for Artmaster and higher are being compiled for shipping. We will be in touch with the high-end backers regarding individualized parts and other specialty rewards shortly.

Thank you for you patience.

-Trent Troop"

Obviously these things happen, and for those keeping track the BMOG sets were in the USA, and went on sale at BotCon in June of this year. Shipping can be a time-consuming thing to coordinate. I pledged at the $50 level, which I assume did not yet ship.

Rise of the Beasts - Kickstarter Update

Rise of the BeastsThat's So RavenSome rosy news via the Rise of the Beasts Kickstarter: First full factory order is IN! The Kickstarted died, but the line didn't - Mr. Karis was kind enough to send some prototypes along to me late last year, so I'll be doing a post on those shortly. They're pretty slick.

The Glyos factory is making these, so the figures are - surprise! - Glyos-compatible. They do nice work and they don't put out inferior products, so these s hould be pretty good. I haven't seen pricing or an ETA yet, but these should be on the happy side of excellent. Painted and unpainted figures will be made, and a video is on their Kickstarter page.

Six Second Toy Talk: Marvel Legends Groot

MarvelIt is rare for a character to capture the imagination of a country to the point of preposterousness, and then have that figure drawn, quartered, and split up into six pieces. Six is, of course, not "quartered." Such a figure's strange birth can only be the work of a power of mystifying strength, and it's the subject of today's Six Second Toy Talk.

Now say "thank you."
