HasLab Updates on Unicron, Cookie Monster

TransformersGobon?Via HasLab: Cookie Monster's about 13% funded and Unicron is at 26%. Overseas outlets are also selling Unicron which we're told will contribute to the total, so there's still a bit of time for people to go for these. I saw both at Comic-Con and they were incredibly impressive - and huge. Very huge.

Neither have moved much in the last week, but the Sail Barge had some lulls too. Crowdfunding is a weird thing for a big company to do, but it's fun to watch.

Street Sharks M.U.S.C.L.E. Exists

MUSCLEBrachinosaurusVia eBay and Instagram comments: Street Sharks M.U.S.C.L.E. figures are out in the wild! I see no Super7 branding - just Mattel - and it looks like they may be showing up at Ollie's and/or 5 Below.

None of the Keshi forums have a lot to say that I could find, and eBay samples lack price tags. Let me know if you've found any!

Hasbro Pulse Adds Seacons

TransformersSeaconsVia Hasbro Pulse: Takara Tomy Transformers Generations Selects Seacons. It's good news that you can get these for the Japanese prices, more or less, with US shipping rates. Unfortunately, those prices are double the going rate of typical Voyagers and Deluxes.

Six Decepticons are expected, and as the final combiner team for US fans to grab in a "Combiner Wars"-style update these are potentially more exciting than Unicron - and potentially about half that price.

SD Adapter for Analogue's HD Super NES, Sega Genesis Clones

Video GamesDACVia many and RetroRGB: Analogue DAC Prototypes Unveiled Super Nt/Mega Sg on CRT TVs! Analogue spilled the beans on the Digital Analog Converter recently, and these are new gizmos that allow you to hook up your Super NT and Mega Sg consoles to CRT monitors via RCA, RGB, S-Video, and other kinds of connections. This is particularly exciting because this may mean those of you with light gun games can actually use those, since HDTV light gun compatibility has proven to be problematic so far.

In short, your fancy perfect HDMI-compatible 16-bit consoles tailor-made for HDMI inputs on HD and 4K and maybe 8K displays now have an adapter to use on the big, heavy TVs that until recently, Goodwill wouldn't accept for free. I still keep a couple of them around, myself.

What's more, Trademarks Hint At A Game Boy Clone From The Aces At Analogue (NintendoLife and others.) "Analogue 8" would probably be a new NES clone, as the Analogue NT models are long gone, and Analogue Pocket would sensibly be a GameBoy clone of some sort. But nothing has been announced as of yet, so don't get your hopes up.

No pricing or release date is given - and depending on your hardware needs, it might not be worth your while to get these if you have vintage hardware. As my Sega stuff stops at RCA, this might be worth my while.
