New Fall of Cybertron Transformers on Facebook

TransformersKatpissArguably more interesting than Hasbro's showings at BotCon last week, a Facebook post called TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS DELUXE CLASS gives up 29 images of characters from the game in toy form. Notable: Ultra Magnus, a remold of Optimus Prime which is actually pretty imaginative. Sideswipe, a remold of Jazz which is really intensive for a remold. Starscream, I think, with some Thrust-oleum paint on him. Fireflight, an Autobot redeco of Shockwave with a new head. 13 figures are shown, and if memory serves Hasbro indicated about 40 would be released in Transformers Generations in 2013. So I'm wagering some of these are 2013 figures.

Kickstarter: Official Bootleg Release from Skafish

MusicPirazon?A primer: Skafish is a dude/band who was around Chicago in the 1970s and 1980s, released a couple of LPs and some other projects, and (if you liked the punk/new wave/Urgh! A Music War music from that era) a fairly entertaining fellow. While it seems his major studio releases are in some sort of limbo, I WANT MY SKAFISH BOOTLEG! is a new Kickstarter project basically aiming to do what the name says-- distribute a live show from 1977 which was initially put out as a bootleg. If you like this kind of thing, and you should, it's worth checking out.

Another "Justin Bailey" Metroid Code Discovered (Years Ago)

NintendoMetroidBecause I've been living under a rock: everybody knows the Metroid "Justin Bailey" code, but I totally missed "Narpas Sword0," which is "NARPAS SWORD0" (with a zero at the end) followed by a row of 0s. The intriguing thing about it, it's basically a debug/god mode code. You have unlimited missiles, your energy is more or less stuck in a range that's not going to let you die, and you have a weird hybrid ice/wave beam weapon. Give it a spin! It's neat!

The neck mechanism has been replaced by 2- and 5-inch "neck" pieces you can pop in to make him as tall as you're so inclined.

G.I. Joe Retaliation Pushed to March 2013 for 3D Conversion

G.I. JoeNo JoeHasbro confirmed it. G.I. JOE: RETALIATION Film to Be Released in 3D is a headline which buries the actual news, which is that the release date, originally scheduled for June 2012, is now March 2013. The nine-month delay is to convert the film to 3D for enhanced overseas box office business. Seeing as how the promotion has been in high gear for weeks (I saw a trailer with The Dictator over the weekend) this seems like rotten timing and people may be confused and assume March will be a re-release of the film instead.

The toys are not being recalled. That is absurd. It is extremely expensive to recall toys, and they're already out there. Walmarts have been putting them out for days and some grocery chains have had them out for weeks. You can even order some at Entertainment Earth if they're still in stock. They look great in person and the line will probably do just as well without the movie to back it up.

In the interest of all fairness, there are stories being posted that Hasbro is recalling these items, including one in Variety. None of the subsequent reports seem to be direct ("a guy told me he heard that a guy said...") so I'm going to tell you to take any recall report with a mondo grain of salt unless someone shows you the memo from Hasbro or whatever corporate overlords run the toy store(s) in question. I may be full of crap. I don't think I am but that's the problem, someone here is naive and for all I know it's me! Stay tuned, kids, and while you wait you can probably go to some stores near you to find something.

Transformers Bot Shots 3 Out (We Found 'Em)

TransformersWave 3Could this be the best toy run weekend in years? I submit that it was. Bot Shots Wave 3 Are Out Now and we found 'em at a Walmart. Lockdown, Thundercracker, Jetfire, Topspin, and Chase Megatron are all out now and there's my stash in the picture. I haven't had time to open them yet (I have to write this update) but they're out there! Happy hunting!

Update: Opened Lockdown and Topspin shortly after posting this update. Both are quite impressive, Lockdown has a bunch of paint applications so his windows are actually decorated red and he shares parts with Topspin. Topspin lacks the rally marks, but his head seems similar to the IDW comic art rather than the movie. At four bucks a pop, you should get one if not both. They're delightful. More in FOTD soon!

My Little Pony SDCC "Special" Edition Derpy

My Little PonyDerpyOver at The USA Today, Exclusive: Preview the 2012 Special Edition My Little Pony brings the popular fan-dubbed "Derpy" to plastic. While not explicitly named on the packaging or in the article, the pony has the wonky eyes of the character which holds, if you'll forgive the pun, a special place in fan hearts. It should run around $19.99. I assume fans of all ages will have some interest in this piece but I have to assume this is mostly made to satisfy the adult collector base.
