The aim is to pick the next big Transformers toy - Trypticon is in the lead on many informal polls, and he's joined by Omega Supreme and Scorponok. For those who have watched other Fan's Choice polls, we've found quite often that the collector sites do not always correspond to the actual winners. Star Wars polls are notorious from surprise upsets, mostly because collectors spend a lot of money but do live in a bubble. We look forward to seeing how this shakes out. The toy you vote on is expected Fall (meaning near Comic-Con) 2017.
I was seeing some unusual Jakks Nintendo items on eBay and noticed this one. The box is $30 plus shipping ($9) making it not cheap - but certainly interesting if you're like me and said "This figure would be awesome with a better paint job." Given Samus is pretty scarce in the first place, it may be the best shot most of you have at getting one. Their policies say you can sign up once and then cancel immediately, so I'm giving it a shot - this figure is due to ship out the first week of December. Possible regrets recur every 30 days. Other items included in this box are a Darth Vader comic book, and since I was about to pay $30 for the Samus on eBay that was good enough for me.
If you were curious as to what kind of junk quality merchandise the box has, I suggest checking My Subscription Addiction - they do a good job inventorying all of these things. It looks like you get the usual selection of not-quite-licensed t-shirts as well as posters, plush, luggage tags, Blu-Ray discs, mugs, comics, and other future fodder for regifting or your junk drawers. I may not necessarily agree with their definition of "value," but I look at it like this - would I pay $30 for Samus on eBay anyway? Yeah. So I jumped for this one.
Well, if that isn't a fine how-do-you-do. Another Masterpiece Zoids kit is coming. 1/72 Zoids Masterpiece MPZ-02 Saber Tiger is motorized, and is just under $100 - and due around March. First is the Shield Liger kit due in December, also about $100.
"Feeling the ominous thud of an AT-AT stomping down on the frozen tundra of Hoth. Rebel forces firing blasters as Imperial speeder bikes zip through the lush forests of Endor. Intense dogfights between squadrons of X-wings and TIE fighters filling the skies. Immerse yourself in the epic STAR WARS battles you’ve always dreamed of and create new heroic moments of your own in STAR WARS™ Battlefront™."
Also available: Game Of Thrones – Episode 6: The Ice Dragon, The Crew Wild Run Edition, Deadpool, Resident Evil Revelations 2 Deluxe Edition, and Knight Squad.
Joel Hodgson or his court-appointed Kickstarter medium writes: "At the end of the day, he's just another regular guy in a yellow jumpsuit - not so different from you and me. I'm excited to see what he can bring to the next hundred episodes of Mystery Science Theater, until it's time to hand the jumpsuit over to someone else."
I also read somewhere that the next TV show would be a prequel to movie #5, but I can't find it now and it doesn't necessarily correspond with the timeline. But hey, it might - it depends on how long Hasbro plans to milk that last year of Robots in Disguise.
New to the Playstation 4 this week: Star Wars Battlefront, The Crew Wild Run Edition, Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series - Episode 6: The Ice Dragon, Deadpool, Resident Evil Revelations 2 Deluxe Edition, Sword Art Online: Lost Song, and Dreamals.
Review: Mattel Masters of the Universe Classics Blade
Something 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!
Take a stab at finding the Mattel Masters of the Universe Classics Blade because he's pretty cheap now. Movie guys don't get the love the cartoon guys do, so get it if you like - he's got a whip, two swords, and some of the best sculpted detail in the entire line. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more!
Not much specific info was given, but it's a long time coming. Hasbro had the Micronauts logo in its Toy Fair showroom 7 or 8 years ago, and there have been rumors-that-weren't-rumors about a movie for quite some time. Here's looking forward to Toy Fair.
