Star Wars Review: Jannah (The Black Series)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Jannah (The Black Series). I didn't open mine until pretty recently - it's a decent figure, but you can also see how the modern Star Wars design ethos has a lot of overlap between movies, as she could just as easily be on the same shelf as Rogue One characters.. Read the whole review.

Playmobil Freebie in the UK

PlaymobilEat ItVia our pal Philip but also BirdsEye: FREE Playmobil Mini Captain when you buy 2 packs of mini fish fingers. If you'e in the UK or Republic of Ireland, you can get this exclusive figure. And if you get more than one, you can send one my way.

Apparently you just need to upload receipts, which is a heck of a way to do a toy mail-in offer. The last time I sent away for a mail-in figure for the US, I believe you needed stickers and a check that was probably about as much as the cost of the item plus shipping.

Star Wars Review: Darth Maul (The Retro Collection)

To celebrate 25 years of the movie, as tomorrow is 25 years of Midnight Madness, we're going to review this 6-pack - currently at Target - until we look at 'em all. Maul's details are a little soft, but he has a better pose and is generally interesting to fuss with. He can't fit in the Sith Infiltrator though. Read the whole review.

Star Trek For Sale? Sony Eyeing Paramount

Star TrekEat ItVia Variety: Sony Pictures, Apollo Offer to Buy Paramount Global for $26 Billion in Cash . There have been many speculators anticipating that Apple, Netflix, and Amazon would either buy other streamers (and media companies) or they would begin to merge to compete with the bigger conglomerates - and here's another one. " Joint bid comes as media company's board is considering merger deal with Skydance Media," the subhead says, but it could mean stuff could be licensed to other platforms where it could make more money (that's good) or production could be reduced because you're probably going to get about as much of a kick from a 2-hour movie or special as you will from a relatively short season of 10 episodes (that's bad), and none of those are likely to do much to help you sell more toys to fans.

Will anything come of it? I have no idea - but with fewer voices in media, more outlets, and less money to go around in a post-three-networks world, I assume whatever comes to pass will not result in 26 episodes of a season ever again.

Classic Review: Hasbro Battle Beasts Rainbow Sam

Figure of the DayHasbro Battle Beasts Rainbow SamA 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.

Posted ten years ago today! The Hasbro Battle Beasts Rainbow Sam came out in 1988, and today, he's kind of expensive. Such is inflation and, apparently, enough collectors who actually remember Battle Beasts. I like it. Read on!

Skeletor & Demogorgon Set Hitting

MOTUStrange Days Have Found UsVia me: Target's Masters of the Universe x Stranger Things Skeletor and Demogorgon Action Figure Set is available for $34.99 but, for some reason, isn't available online for delivery or in-store pick-up. Or inventory checking - it might be on the pegs. It might not. You should go check because it's a pretty nice set. There's absolutely no reason to make a Demogorgon from Beast Man and new Moss Man parts, but this is the sort of thing that, if made by some toy bootleg custom guy on Instagram, you'd probably be over the moon and shell out a hundred bucks for it. I'd like to see some more crossovers like this.

It's also worth noting that some Target stores also have the Rulers of the Sun 3-pack with Holographo, Kitko, and Zap-Man for around $15. (It was $50.) You might also see Sla'ker, too, so have fun hunting this week.

I have been seeing a steady trickle of this figure at Target, where it's an exclusive closed-box six pack with six individually carded figures inside.

Steve Albini Dead at 61

MusicEat ItVia Pitchfork and elsewhere: Steve Albini, Storied Producer and Icon of the Rock Underground, Dies at 61. He's most famous for a lot of things - engineering In Utero for Nirvana, recording albums for the likes of Man or Astro-Man? and Fred Schneider and The Pixies and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and much more, playing in the bands Big Black and Shellac, and more.

Shellac has a new album due in about a week, To All Trains, and who the heck knows what else he was working on.

(The image is from the legendary Chunklet #15, one of very few issues of an utterly fantastic magazine that mostly went over my head at the time because you've gotta do your homework to understand most of it.)

7-11 Tetris Push for 40th Anniversary

Video GamesEat ItVia 7-11: 7-Eleven, Inc. Teams Up With The Tetris Company for Slurpee Drink-Inspired Handheld Gaming Device and Themed 7Collection Drop. They did a whole Pac-Man thing a couple of years ago, but now you can enter a contest to win a cup-shaped portable Tetris device.

There are a lot of hats and shirts, and if you're thinking "I don't think I was playing Tetris back in 1984?" you'd be right. Home consoles got it in 1989, and I believe the arcade game was 1988 - but people may have been sharing it on floppy disc prior to that. You just weren't playing it in a 7-11 in 1984.

She also has some thing no original figure had, like the extended collar element and her long hair. Overall, it's a pretty great figure. Read the whole review.

Hot Wheels x Transformers Transforming Optimus Prime

TransformersEat ItVia Mattel Creations: Hot Wheels Transformers Optimus Prime. The 1:64 scale truck - roughly the same size as Hot Wheels cars and Hasbro's Spy Changers and GoBots from G2 - has a metal body, accessories, and Spectraflame paint. It's fancy, but also priced $10 above the Missing Link cab-only toy which is taller and has slightly more articulation and accessories.

Hasbro rarely approves transforming toys to licensees - that may be why this item has a higher retail price. A non-transforming Transformers Hot Wheels Optimus Prime Truck 1:64 Scale Die-Cast Metal Vehicle is also coming, complete with trailer, for under ten bucks too, which may be better for those wanting something for their scale cities and tracks.

Star Wars Review: Battle Droid (The Retro Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Battle Droid (The Retro Collection). This one's a little weird - the sculpt looks similar to the 1999 figures, but the backpack took design cues from Boba Fett. It's melting into the back, and while it looks weird I do enjoy the design decision as it's based on an actual Kenner product. Also the Battle Droid has a far more interesting pose than most Retro figures, with a bent elbow that gives him a lot of personality. Read the whole review.

Conglom-O is coming.

They say "The purchase includes the rights to more than 200 titles from the Intellivision portfolio and the Intellivision trademarks."
