Transformers Microns: New Molds for Japan from Kabaya

TransformersNewNew from Japan! The Allspark has shots of New Molds Microns (Mini-Cons) coming to Japan for Transformers Prime, which is exciting because new molds are far and few between for this line. (I think last year we got about 3.) They seem to transform into weapons, with robots resembling Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, and two others which turn into a gecko and a snake. I'm sold.

LEGO Lord of the Rings Official Images

USA Today Previews Amazing New G.I. Joe Retaliation Figures

G.I. JoeSamus AranOh man. Apparently to make better movie action figures, you need to make your movie look like it's populated by toys. USA Today revealed Nine Hasbro Figures from G.I. Joe Retaliation yesterday including Roadblock, Cobra Commander, and others. Surprisingly, the entire line looks like a lot of fun and seems to have more to do with recent action figure releases than the previous movie-- there is still a lot of black, but there's other color too.

Expect more from Toy Fair next week!

"Are you annoyed at how little magic you are able to shoot from your fingers? Have you ever tried to get grandma to do the worm, but all she would do is just stand there?

Well, Double Fine Happy Action Theater can solve all of these problems and more! You will also be able to clone yourself or hang out in a plate of jelly if you want. And when youšre done with that, maybe you will want to feed some pigeons or have a snowball fight. There are 18 amazing ways that Double Fine Action Theater will enhance your life! And up to 5 of your friendsš lives too! (ages 2 to 102)"

Also new (and also for the Kinect) is Rhythm Party, a $10/800 point dance thing.

Playmobil Germany Has Tons of New Stuff

PlaymobilHousekeeping!The Playmobil hobo-- which you can see at the top of pretty much every page on this site-- was, for a long time, the highest of the high marks of what amazing things Playmobil can do. Playmobil 5271 Hotel Room Service/Housekeeping is one of many new hotel sets, which had me rolling with glee. This is one of dozens of new sets announced for Germany in 2012, meaning they should hit the USA in 2013. She has a washing machine, cleaning cart, ironing board, and other goodies.

Of note: the keg is being reissued, the hotel theme, new dinosaur sets, Olympics-themed sets, and a revival of the western theme with a really great bandit/robber set.

I sincerely do not expect anything to be announced in New York this weekend to be more delightful than this. Prove me wrong, is all I'm saying.

Toy Fair Galleries Galore

Toy FairI've been in dozens of press events and meetings and snapped hundreds if not thousands of photos so far. I'm tired, and the bad thing here is this will slow down new news. Here's a list of highlights, followed by galleries of new stuff to see.

  • Mattel will make a Back to the Future II Hoverboard Prop Replica. Preorders in March, delivery late this year, price estimated at $120. This may be the biggest news of the show. Photography was not allowed but it's probably out there somewhere.
  • Diamond Select Toys will make a Minimates Star Trek Classic Enterprise with a pop-open saucer with a captain chair. Again, no photos.
  • DST got The Expendables and will be doing a lot of toys.
  • The Four Horsemen announced a new Outer Space Men character named Terra Firma.
  • NECA got Prometheus, no product was shown.
  • Funko got Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy, and tons of other awesome surprise properties. Their Mars Attacks T-Shirts are incredible.
  • New Masters of the Universe Classics include a Snake Men 2-pack, Spikor, and Frosta.

Transformers Bot Shots Launchers, 3-Packs Found

TransformersBot ShotsPhoenix area Walmarts have the new Bot Shots Launchers and 3-Packs for $8.96 each, if you got there before I did. I believe Target will be charging $7.99 for the launchers and I'm not so sure about the 3-packs.

Notable: Optimus Prime has very different power numbers than his single-carded counterpart. He's also painted differently-- the launcher version has much brighter, richer colors and I daresay looks better between the two. So if you're looking to skip redeco figures, you might want to pass on basic single Optimus and just get the launcher for the better-looking figure.

Also notable: Bumblebee 3-pack is different than Bumblebee Single, but I'm lazy and it's after midnight and I'll shoot it later, dadgummit. If you're short on funds, get the Megatron/Nemesis Prime/Acid Storm set first due to shortpackedness.

Bot Shots

For those keeping track, there are now at least 13 unique Bot Shots at retail, and over 40 expected in 2012.

Aquabats TV Show Preview

MusicAquabatsSure, it's been gestating since the mid 1990s, but the Aquabats Super Show is being previewed in iTunes, and will air on the Hub (Hasbro cable channel) in a few days. There's a short free preview which is an interesting mix of camp, low-budget action fun, and the old Adam West Batman show. I think this should be big. Or at least worth watching once.
