Review: Onell Design Glyos Pheytron

Figure of the DayOnell Design Glyos PheytronSomething new every day-- unless it's old! Our exciting Figure of the Day continues for you lucky people! Is there anything we won't cover in this column? Probably not!

New NES Metroid ROM Hack Will Impress You

Rogue DawnVideo GamesVia ROMHacking.net: Metroid - Rogue Dawn. This came out a few weeks ago and normally I don't post about a lot of fan games, but this is impressive.

New sprites, a new story, new music, and more stuff let you explore a planet as Dawn Aran, basically running around to discover the Metroid creature in a story that takes place before the original Metroid game that came out in the USA about 30 years ago. You really ought to look this one up - it's pretty impressive. Fans of hacked consoles have claimed playing it on Wiis and NES Classic Edition.

New Transformers Device - A Phone

OptimusTransformersVia TFW2005: Transformers x au Transforming Phones Launch Crowdfunding Campaign. Like Soundwave last year, Optimus, Bumblebee, and Megatron turn in to phones and this is a crowdfunding project. Also like last year, it's entirely possible that the term crowdfunding is not being used correctly.

We don't know if they'll be sold at US conventions yet - but with San Diego's Comic-Con International and Rhode Island's HasCon, but it's a safe bet that they will make an appearance. Japanese releases will be between $50-$60, so expect a US price of $40 or more.

Star Treks DS9, Voyager Unlikely To Be Remastered

Optimus Ex-PrimeStar TrekVia Slashfilm: Why 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine' & 'Voyager' Won't Be Released in HD or on Blu-ray. Like most things, the answer is simple: economics.

The 1990s Star Trek shows were all shot on film, transferred to video, and aired on TV. The Next Generation had to be heavily reworked and remastered using the film, and that's really expensive. What's more, the show didn't sell too well and apparently there's not big money in syndication like in the old days. It's a little disappointing as the original film doesn't always last forever, so time is running out and money's already gone.

Also, DC from Mattel! There were more figures, but deadlines and other meetings result in some of these things not being shot.

While not technically Toy Fair, we stopped by the Nintendo World Store! Lots of vintage prototype Nintendo Entertainment System hardware was on display and I couldn't resist making this piece of history available on a site called 16bit.com.

Super7 brought its A-Game when it didn't even have a booth last year. Masters of the Universe retro figures are coming, with Filmation-esque creations that look like the figures you probably thought you had, but didn't.

Subscription-based direct-only Masters of the Universe Classics were also shown, including mini-comic figures and cartoon-inspired releases you'll dig.

Another expansion in M.U.S.C.L.E.! Several rumored/confirmed properties were shown including Mega Man, Shogun Warriors, and ALIENS. If you aren't digging these you have no soul.

ReAction and ReAnimated retro figures close out the look at their booth, with more Alien than you can shake a stick at - plus Planet of the Apes and more.
