Star Wars Figure of the Day Updated

Galactic Hunter & Star Wars NewsNikto JediFigure of the Day has updated once again! The daily feature on figures you might have but might not-- either way, here's what you've been missing! Spanning from the original Power of the Force series of 1995 to the latest of The Vintage Collection, it's almost like a history lesson!

Today we look at the very first Nikto Jedi, a 1999 exclusive army builder sold only at an overpriced (and more or less now defunct) chain with a huge creature that nobody wanted... and naturally today nobody cares. Go to Figure of the Day for the next update, with the latest installment in our ongoing series!

New Games for the Xbox 360 Live Arcade Released

Xbox Live ArcadeVoltronXbox 360 owners, it's time to look into Voltron, a $10/800 space something or other. Microsoft says:

"From days of long ago, from uncharted regions of the universe, comes a legend. The Legend of Voltron. Defender of the Universe. A mighty robot, loved by good, feared by evil. Take control of your favorite Lion and join forces on Xbox LIVE to defend the Far Universe. Visit iconic locations from classic series including Arus and Planet Doom. Take on enemy forces in four different game modes. Battle Zarkon's minions in Survivor Mode as a pilot, engage in ground assaults in Lion Mode or cross the glalaxy in Space Mode, or coop with four friends in Voltron Mode to confront massive Robeasts! Voltron fans, Mega-Thrusters are go!"

Also new is Scene It? Movie Night, another in an ongoing series of movie trivia games. The big difference here is this one is $10/800 points and downloadable. The other retail versions are quite good, if you like this sort of thing.

Wal-Mart, Target (May) Have 2-For-1 Dark of the Moon Transformers

TransformersNew Deluxe For LessSince late November Target has had these 2-packs, but now Wal-Mart has Transformers Dark of the Moon Bonus Packs for about ten bucks. Target's focus on earlier waves, while Wal-Mart has figures as recent as Cyberfire Bumblebee and Specialist Ratchet-- which, let's face it, is better than full price.

We have spotted Darksteel and Air Raid at Kohl's, but so far, not really a lot of other places. They're "on sale" for $13.99, which is actually a few dollars off from regular price. (They aren't scalping-- Target, Toys R Us, and the like are toy discounters, KB Toys and the rest were generally charing close to SRP or a reasonable markup. We're just used to "discount" being "normal" now.)

"Party-style fun is ripe for the picking as Apples to Apples the video game comes to Xbox LIVE Arcade!

Target Marking Down Translucent DOTM Exclusive Transformers

TransformersCheap RepaintsLast July's exclusive wave of Target Transformers deluxe toys may be marked down at a store near you. Space Case (pictured), Bumblebee, Arcee, and Jazz were all made with clear plastic bits and given an exclusive comic book. Each figure is now 30%-50% off, depending on your store, and in some cases the stores put the discount stickers on other, neighboring lines which are not on sale. So fair warning there.

In my area, some stores put out new stock for the sale-- so if you haven't seen Space Case for months, now is your chance. (I reviewed him a few months ago, so do read that.)

Louis C.K. Releases Download of Comedy Concert Film

ComedyFunnyBreaking form with the comedy world (and doing a fine job), Louis C.K. Live at the Beacon Theater has been released as a direct download. The 63-minute comedy special is available as a stream or as an MP4 for $5 and after having watched it last night, it's (obviously) very funny. To further comment on it would be to do you a disservice-- if you're familiar with C.K.'s large body of work and amazing DIY work ethic, you're going to love watching him put on this special which he masterminded and edited with three popsicle sticks and a few cameras. It's amazing. No, this isn't an ad, but it was totally worth checking out. The special will not be airing on cable or released on DVD, and his site's marketing copy for this special is some of the best I've seen this side of Chunklet.

"No DRM, no regional restrictions, no crap. You can download this file, play it as much as you like, burn it to a DVD, whatever."

Nicely done.

Two Lost Doctor Who Episodes Found

TVFishmanThe BBC has a report on lost Doctor Who episodes being found! The idea of a "lost episode" is kind of a cliche, although the BBC really did videotape over several older episodes of Doctor Who a few decades back.

Xbox Live ArcadeXbox fans, it's time to download Sonic CD, a $5/400 point port of the Sega CD classic. But which soundtrack does it have? how you know you've arrived! Microsoft says:

"It's time to usher the past into the future in this enhanced recreation of Sonic CD! Sonic travels to the distant shores of Never Lake for the once-a-year appearance of Little Planet - a mysterious world where past, present, and future collide through the power of the Time Stones that lie hidden within it. His arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman, has come for the Time Stones and with them, will soon have the power to control time itself In order to put an end to Dr. Eggman's nefarious schemes, Sonic must use the power of Little Planet to travel through time; breaking Dr. Eggman's hold over the future by destroying his machines in the past and recovering the missing Time Stones! Featuring 16:9 widescreen, achievements, leaderboards and both the US and Japanese soundtracks, experience the adventure through time that introduced the world to Amy the Hedgehog and Eggman's most evil creation, Metal Sonic."

Also, Joe Danger Special Edition was released, and I don't know if a regular edition was produced. It's $15/1,200 points and seems to be like Excitebike with more "excite" programmed into it. It certainly looks neat.

LEGO Gets Lord of the Rings, Hobbitses

LEGOFrodo LivesNow that movie-based Lord of the Rings toys are old enough to be arguably "retro," LEGO announced they will be making LOTR and Hobbit toys in 2012. Cynical me thinks this is just a grab to do more LEGO video games-- as there may be more money in those than the actual toys-- but I suppose we'll know more come Toy Fair in February!

Character You've Never Heard Of Wins He-Man.org's Fan's Choice Poll

Masters of the UniverseWho?After many weeks of many votes, the Winner of the He-Man.org Official Fan Figure Choice Poll is Illumina and you've never heard of her.

She'll be coming in 2013, along with another character selected by German fans which is still (as far as I know) to be releaved.

Pictured is the Swamp Monster, a creature presumably from a lagoon which is not black.

New Games for the Xbox 360 Live Arcade Released

Xbox Live ArcadeXbox fans, it's time to download Trine 2, a $15/1,200 point sports game. Sports have dragons, spiders, and magic right? Microsoft says:

"Experience a world of stunning beauty, potent magic, and perilous adventure...one in which you may travel alone or with friends. Play as the powerful knight, the swift rogue, and the crafty wizard in this physics-based, action-platformer with 3-player local and online multiplayer. Make the most of each character's unique skills and tools to find your way through each puzzling stage of this breathtakingly beautiful adventure. Brought together by chance and bound by a powerful ancient magic, a knight, a thief, and a wizard must now work together to undo the spell cast upon them and defeat an undead army threatening the kingdom. Each is uniquely specialized; the knight is master of strength and steel, his mighty sword capable of felling any foe. The thief is fast and dextrous, highly proficient with bow and arrow. The wizard dominates his surroundings, manipulating the environment around him. Together, there is no enemy or obstacle that can stand in their way."

New ThunderCats Hitting Now

ThunderCatsMumm-RaTarget stores are getting new ThunderCats figures right now, including the classic 6-inch Mumm-Ra and Lion-O which we reported on earlier! These are in classic-ish boxes and may be confused for their existing 8-inch line at first glance. Were it not for Mumm-Ra, I'd have not immediately noticed them.

Target also has a new "Eye of Thundera" boxed set with several characters from the show, which seems like a good place to start collecting. The 4-inch scale figures include Mumm-Ra, Tygra, Snarf, and Lion-O. As far as I can tell, Snarf is the selling point here, and some of the other figures are missing a key accessory or two. The set is $29, which is... well, arguably OK.
