IDW Gets Chocolate in Your Hasbrobutter

RevolutionToysVia EW: Transformers, G.I. Joe, and other Hasbro characters come together for IDW's Revolution. It's a little insane, and the sorta-maybe-a-reboot incorporated Kenner, Parker Bros., Mego, and Hasbro properties of old - some of which are before my time. G.I. Joe, Transformers, Micronauts, ROM, Action Man, and M.A.S.K. are in so far.

Considering these should take place in the existing Transformers stories - where like 1 in 7 humans were killed off during All Hail Megatron and humanity is basically trying to purge Cybertronian invaders from Earth - well, some of it kinda fits pretty well.

SDCC - Transformers x G.I. Joe Returns

Powerglide vs. SoundwaveSDCCVia ACToys: G.I. Joe and the Transformers 2016. The latest on the ongoing and generally criminally underproduced boxed sets has been revealed via a leak, thanks in part to many (most) toy manufacturers neglecting to announce their own exclusives in April or May like in previous years.

This one includes a DTC HISS Tank as Soundwave, a Rattler as Powerglide, plus Scarlett and Zartan figure. If you want this set, and you're not going to San Diego next month, many sorrows will be upon you.

Also, Mezco's got a plush Snarf.

Mel Birnkrant's Wicked Wind-Ups

Pity May FoolsToysVia the Mel Birnkrant: Mel Birnkrant's Wicked Wind-Ups. Once in a while I write people just to say hi, and Mr. Birnkrant informed me of this really weird - really awesome - line of wind-up things. I could describe it to you, but just read (and see) what he has for you. It's a line of Basic Fun toys form the early 1990s that you will want to buy now.

He writes: "I can think of no logical reason why [Wicked Wind-Ups] should exist. Imagine a small naked demon, riding on a crawling eyeball."

Mr. Birnkrant is famous for The Outer Space Men and numerous other toys, although many not necessarily by name. His is a great resource of toy history, including a lot of cool ideas that never made it out, so be sure to take a look. The Wicked Wind-Ups did see release and you can find some on eBay. Be sure to watch the video in his article - and then despair at some of the designs that didn't make it out.

While Joe as a mainline product is quite dead, there are plans for more releases in 2016. The secrecy isn't very secret, so expect to hear about figures shortly and save money now so you can get yours later this year. Amidst all the new Star Wars and Titans Return and goodness knows what else happens in the rumored death throes of another collector line.

With the rumored demise of another collector line distributed purely by mail, it's certainly shaping up to be a somewhat dark year for kids of the 1980s. Unless you love Star Wars and Transformers, in which case, Yahtzee. (Also a Hasbro brand.)

More Amiibo Stands - Donkey Kong Classic Too

NintendoI saw these on Amazon and boy howdy, are they nifty. Previous $10 Warp Pipe stands seemed cool, but not exactly a great value. This batch includes a wind-up 8-bit pillar of rotating flames from Bowser's Castle, The Master Sword's resting place - with Master Sword stylus, and my personal favorite, 8-Bit Donkey Kong Level 1 for $20.

It's kind of nutty, but also pretty awesome. I'll probably be buying the Donkey Kong one even though I'm not entirely sure I have 9 opened Amiibo figures.

Transformers Titans Return Arriving - Quick Rundown

LoudmouthToysIf you buy toys online, Titans Return Transformers Toys are shipping now. I got a batch of Titan Masters and Leaders over the weekend, and for you benefit I took the UPC from Terri-Bull around to find out what brick and mortar stores were charging. It did not scan at Kmart or Walmart, but Target's computers had them at $4.99. I'd say just order them online if you want some.

Since I'm early, I thought you might like some early impressions - FOTDs are of course in the works as of this writing. It does not appear the foot holes or foot pegs on the tiny toys are consistently sized, so be aware not everything is going to be compatible with everything else. (I'm looking at you, Buzzsaw.)

Powermaster Optimus Prime is a beast. The truck mode is fantastic, and while the cab looks similar to Ultra Magnus it's entirely new. The proportions are different, and there's a seat for Apex inside - plus lots of weapons. Robot mode is big and awesome, but the base mode is a bit of a bore. It does not connect easily to Blaster's base mode in the configuration provided by the instruction manual. I love it. If you want red eyes for your Powermaster Optimus Prime, buy Loudmouth. He does the job.

Blaster is a gem. Base mode is great - really great - and it makes a lot out of other 5mm toys if you have any. There are plenty of places to pose Titan Masters (sold separately) or plug in various weapons, so you'll have more fun with this one. You'd have more fun with rocket-firing parts or claws or something, but it looks nice on a shelf at least. It's just not much of a toy. Blaster's robot mode is nearly the exact size of the G1 original.

Nightbeat is the least interesting in the first wave of little $5 head sets. The head mode is based on Nightbeat's toy - but most people are more familiar with his comic book incarnation, which used Siren's toy as a model. The tiny robot is fine, the drill tank can change into a jet easily, but the problem comes from plugging in the head into the drill tank mode. You have to use excessive force to do what the instructions show, and that's going to be a bad first impression for a lot of fans on an otherwise good toy line. If you buy Nightbeat, open him last. The weapon mode is fun but requires the brute force merger.

Terri-Bull is a gem. The metallic blue plastic is very pretty, and the paint is generally good - the tank mode and jet mode are great. The small robot is the perfect driver for the tank, and he melts right in to the jet mode perfectly. If you buy only one, maybe it should be this one. The weapon mode is OK - the others are better.

Crashabash is a treat. The tiny dragon turns into a little t-rex, with the robot merging inside as the jaw and arms to the dinosaur. It's quite clever. The dragon is decent enough, and the gun mode is basically the t-rex mode with a couple of rotations. It's fun, I like it.

Loudmouth is also good - it has a little landspeeder that changes into a tank. The tank can be a gun. Everything seems to fit together well, with one of the best default vehicle modes and a pretty good alternate vehicle mode that reminds me of a tank from Revenge of the Sith a bit. The robot head is nice, and serves as a great alternate head for Powermaster Optimus Prime - granting him red eyes.

In short, I like what I've seen - I look forward to getting my deluxes and legends and talking about the Voyagers too! Here's a Galvatron gallery.
