Review: Hasbro Transformers Generations Legacy Velocitron Speedia 500 Collection G2 Universe Shadowstrip

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Generations Legacy Velocitron Speedia 500 Collection G2 Universe ShadowstripSomething 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!

One of the G2 guys you didn't see in stores! The Hasbro Transformers Generations Legacy Velocitron Speedia 500 Collection G2 Universe Shadowstrip is from the last wave of Walmart exclusives, not to be confused with the new wave of G2 Walmart exclusives hitting now.

Nintendo-Themed Keyboard from 8BitDo

16bit.comKeyed UpVia 8BitDo: 8BitDo Retro Mechanical Keyboard! It's also on Amazon. The tenkeyless (ugh) gadget looks pretty amazing, and comes with giant novelty "A" and "B" buttons you can supposedly assign to anything - but also has "B" and "A" buttons on the keyboard, and I would assume they may share functionality. It boasts programmable keys, though, so we'll have to wait and see. It comes in NES and Famicom-themed colorways and is $100ish, which is a lot for a novelty keyboard - but who knows how good the functionality is? Not me, it doesn't come out until late September.

One of the most interesting features mentioned in a blurb on Retrododo: "The Dual Super Buttons connect to the keyboard via a wire, and you can connect up to four sets of super buttons." That could be fun.

I suppose this is a sensible next step after their NES-themed mouse. They look awesome and I look forward to seeing reviews before making a purchase. (Or really, waiting for a full-size model.) A few years ago Hyperkin released a Super NES-flavored Hyper Clack Tactile Mechanical Keyboard, but reviews are not great and that link on Amazon has it at a mere $55.99 at press time. You might want to skim the reviews first, I certainly kept almost buying one over the years.

Star Wars Review: Inquisitor (Fourth Sister, The Black Series)

This is a pretty good figure - she's sort of a nobody on Obi-Wan Kenobi, but it's rare that we get a new alien with some color to her. Sure, it's another black leather Inquisitor costume, but at least you get somebody with orange skin and multiple head tails. Read the whole review.

A newish mold! The Onell Design Gauss Armor Relgost Fugitive Action Figure is making the rounds at the Onell and Toy Pizza stores, and this one sold out quickly. And it looks great.

Lion's Gate Picks Up eOne from Hasbro

HasbroI asked DeepAI for Mr. Potato Head vomiting an eOne logo and this is what I gotVia Variety: Lionsgate Closes Deal to Acquire eOne From Hasbro for $500 Million and unsurprisingly, Hasbro's stock shot up. Is that good? It depend on how you look at it - Lion's Gate is also taking on the debt. In 2019, Hasbro Acquires Entertainment One in $4 Billion All-Cash Deal so it was probably not a fantastic business decision... minus some properties that may pay off for a while, and a couple of decent projects. Hasbro also sold off Death Row Records a few years ago for $385 million, and given that I don't know what else was carved up and sold, it might have been a decent investment on some three-dimensional chess level I don't understand.

Lion's Gate will take on non-Hasbro IP - like Yellowjackets and Naked and Afraid. Hasbro hasn't exactly had a lot of big moves with its own IP lately that turned into big things - Dungeons & Dragons delivered a fantastic movie and fan-requested cartoon figures, but it wasn't big dollars - so they'll need to come up something for next quarter. I have no idea if Hasbro is shopping for new IP or fixin' to make itself a media powerhouse through some other means, but this is, I suppose, some form of progress. It's important to try new things - Hasbro tried movies, a cable channel, and Mattel is working on a theme park in Arizona as well as movies and other outlets. You can't do the same thing forever.

Related, Funko earnings were not exactly great. I wouldn't say the bubble is bursting - lots of hardcore fans still love and buy this stuff - but it will probably be a good time for them to right-size, whatever that ultimately means. The growth era of collector toys needs some fine-tuning.

I ran around chasing these guys and the line just sort of lost steam when it became obvious it wasn't going to be like the old ones, or whatever reasons people had for not picking them up.

New Sega Genesis Kickstarter - Hunter Girls

SegaHunter GirlsVia Kickstarter and PSCD Games: Hunter Girls - Runner for Sega Mega Drive/Genesis.

Run, jump, attack - it's pretty simple but also a little cheaper than a lot of other crowdfunded game. You can always just grab the demo too, that's free. I am maybe trying it a little too late - and on a keyboard - but I found it a little tricky as "up" jumps and "forward" activates a shield while "b" flings an arrow. But it looks nice, and the music is good, so give it a whirl. It shows you can still get a lot more out of old hardware.

Star Wars Review: Grand Inquisitor (The Retro Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Grand Inquisitor (The Retro Collection). This is not a figure I initially liked, but it kind of grew on me. The head looks sort of like a baby, with understated ridges. The cape drags and comes pre-wrinkled. But the lightsaber is good, and the body armor is sculpted nicely despite being in the same generic pose as most of the Hasbro Retro Collection figures. But the character was something of a dork too, so at least you won't be too upset you can't play with it very well and you can't take off the cape to get him in a ship, either.

New Atari Console Plays Old Cartridges

AtariHunter GirlsVia Atari: ATARI 2600+. This HDMI system emulates the 2600 and 7800, uses old controllers and cartridges, and is $129.99.

Atari says: "Enjoy your favorite Atari 2600 and 7800 games on one system! Not only does the Atari 2600+ pull double cartridge duty, it also features HDMI and widescreen mode for easy connectivity to modern TVs."

The 4-switch faux-woodgrain model is due around November 2023 and has a 10-in-1 cartridge, but you can use that shoebox of games you have too. If it plays well without any nasty lag, this seems exactly like the kind of product your Generation X-er game fan wants at a price that's not awful. They could, however, afford to put more games on it - after all, the entire 2600 library is something under a couple of megabytes.

50th Anniversary Frank Zappa Over-Nite Sensation CDs & Records

MusicRaising my Lonely Dental FlossVia Frank Zappa: Over-Nite Sensation (50th Anniversary) 4CD + Blu-ray Audio Super Deluxe Edition. There are CDs and vinyl. Original copies of the record are semi-plentiful (I picked up a couple at thrift stores over the years), but the 4CD+Blu-Ray set is loaded with alternate takes, live tracks, demos, the whole bit. And depending on how old you are, this is most likely something for your dad (or maybe grampa) unless you were a Weird Kid too.

Do you need multiple versions of Fifty-Fifty? Probably not. Do I? Yeah, probably. It's due in November. The Hot Rats collection was pretty extensive too.

Classic Review: Kenner Batman: The Animated Series Harley Quinn

Figure of the DayMattel Batman Classic TV Series Batman & Robin Action Figure SetA classic! I've written over 5,000 action figure reviews since 2006, so I'm going to toot my own horn with classic Figure of the Day.

A classic from 1997! The Kenner Batman Classic TV Series Batman & Robin Action Figure Set wasn't posted 10 years ago today, but given the bad news about the death of her original voice actress Arleen Sorkin, I wanted to look at the figure again. Read on, it's a good one - and come back tomorrow for an all-new review!

Analogue Pocket Glow in the Dark Edition

Game BoyRaising my Lonely Dental FlossVia Analogue: Analogue Editions: Glow in The Dark. Apparently it's in stock and ready to ship when orders go live for $249.99 on September 1 at 8:00 AM Pacific. I'm super happy with (and still regularly playing) my black one, and I don't want to fight the online crowds, so I'll probably wind up not getting one - but if it's in stock and easy to order, who knows?

The hi-def Game Boy clone is a marvel in that it plays all Game Boy console games, plus other consoles with adapter, plus even more if you side-load various cores in it. I played a lot of Atari VCS games on this thing, and homebrew demos galore, plus other odds and ends. I'd recommend one in any color you can get if you play 2D video games from the 1970s-1990s... but if it really glows for 8 hours on a charge? Maybe spring the money for this one.
