New Transformers Cyber Battalions, Exclusives Hitting

TransformersNewnessWhat a lovely day! Via Autobase Aichi: Transformers Cyber Battalion Prowl and Jetfire are showing up in stores. The last batch were originally China/South American exclusives that started to show up much, much later at Universal Studios theme parks. The costs at the theme parks orbit $35, but you can probably get them for $25 or so delivered from overseas. I will be doing this. If you see some for sale, let me know.

Closer to home is the Chaos on Veloctron set, exclusive to Toys R Us. It's hitting now - someone found one in Erie, Pennsylvania according to Tformers and other reputable toy news sites. It's $99.99.

New Games for the Xbox One

Xbox OneGoat Simulator: Waste Of Space BundleXbox fans, it's time to try Goat Simulator: Waste Of Space Bundle. Microsoft says:

"Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. Destroy things with style, such as doing a backflip while head-butting a bucket through a window, and you’ll earn even more points! Goat Simulator is a completely stupid game and, to be honest, you should probably spend your money on something else, such as a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe pool your money together with your friends and buy a real goat. Goat simulation is finally leaving the planet where it was once conceived to explore the endless possibilities of space. You no longer have to fantasize about colonizing space as a simulated goat. Your dreams have finally come true."

Also available: This Is The Police, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Troll & I, Super Dungeon Bros MEGA Bundle Pack, Vermintide – Digital Value Pack, and Blue-Collar Astronaut.

Official Zelda Cartridge Not-A-Flask

NintendoNewnessVia Kerry: Zelda Hydration Cartridge w/Straw. Given Nintendo's history of being slow with licensing and family-friendly attitude, I'm kind of stunned that this exists. I also assume it means we'll see a bunch more cartridge bottles later.

Currently at ThinkGeek, this bottle is $19.99.

Gloow Ghost - Pineapple Series 1 Figure Boxed on eBay

ToysToxitronVia eBay: Vintage 80's Pineapple Glow Ghost. What's interesting here is these Pineapple Glow Ghosts rarely come up for sale packaged, and this is the first image of the first series - with a box - I've seen on the internet.

This BooHoo comes in a blue box that looks vaguely like the containment units of The Real Ghostbusters. If memory serves, my Baggs came in a red box - btu I haven't been able to find evidence to confirm this. The series 1 boxed toys were missing the "cutie marks" of the second series - only their eyes and mouth were painted. I also had zero memory that the box said "Gloow" instead of "Glow" on it.
