Review: Onell Design Glyos Pheyden Imhoden Pheydotep Action Figure

Figure of the DayOnell Design Glyos Pheyden Imhoden Pheydotep Action FigureSomething 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!

From last year! The Onell Design Glyos Pheyden Imhoden Pheydotep Action Figure is a classic, or rather, it would be if anybody bought it. It sold out quickly and was a very low run items a few years ago, so it's long sold out - but it's cool, and we're using it to kick off our October of monsters and bad guys! Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Hasbro HasLab HeroScape Is Now Live

HasbroHalushia, Scion of the WildVia HasLab: HEROSCAPE AGE OF ANNIHILATION: Vanguard Edition. The campaign continues through November 16 and is presently at 1,279 of 8,000 backers.

The game was originally sold with painted figures over a decade ago and people still enjoy playing. Updated versions of old characters are included as stretch goals, and the set has 71 miniatures in the box before taking hypothetical stretch goals into account. Non-HasLab editions of the game and numerous expansions are likely if this succeeds.

Tell your friends. No, really. The HeroScape game did well enough, but a lot of people complained they didn't know it existed and that $100 (or $150) set now goes for a pretty penny on eBay, so odds are this is the right time to hop on board if you care. At press time, the other HasLab item running is the Ghost Rider Engine of Vengeance at 5,470 backers - which is barely above last week, and does not bode well for the car to see production.

Star Wars Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Wandering Jedi, The Retro Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Wandering Jedi, The Retro Collection). Let's wrap up Old School September with this figure that looks like it came out of 1984. He's got a blaster, he's got a lightsaber, and he has one of Hasbro's very best Jedi Robes - which is surprising, given it's a retro figure. I really like this one. Read the whole review.

Review: Fisher-Price Adventure People X-Ray Woman Action Figure

Figure of the DayFisher-Price Adventure People X-Ray Woman Action FigureSomething 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!

Old! The Fisher-Price Adventure People X-Ray Woman Action Figure is a real classic! The clear construction shows a lack of pins in the body, everything matches up quite well despite the head being opaque. And she's not too expensive for a 40-year-old figure. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

HasLab Adds Robby Reyes Head

MarvelGet a Head and Be WealthyVia @HasbroPulse on Twitter: Robbie is back with a vengeance! The Ghost Rider 6-Inch figure will come with a human-form alternate head & sweatshirt hood accessory to covert into Robbie Reyes. The HasLab campaign needs 9,000 backers and will run until 10/31/22. See http://HasbroPulse.com for more details!

Earlier, an early bird goal was a whole figure with new deco and the Robbie head. The goal was missed so the figure was cut, but they kept the head in as an accessory for the main figure. So now, you get one body with two heads, and not two bodies with two heads.

The figure's numbers had been dipping up and down all day on Wednesday. I saw it go as low as 5,420 earlier in the day. At press time, it's at 5,459. (It was 5,461 just before I uploaded the file - it dipped 2 in a couple of minutes.) That's down from around 5,800 last Friday. (I am not buying this one as I am trying to cut back Marvel to small stuff only, but it's fascinating to watch and I want to keep this record of it.)

Star Wars Review: Death Star Droid (Black, Custom)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Death Star Droid (Black, Custom). I was sent a fan-made custom of this figure over 25 years ago, but this made-from-new-molds "custom" is brand-new and has a shiny black finish. The detail is a little soft, but it still looks good standing in a playset or on a shelf. Read the whole review.

HasLab Ghost Rider Coming Up Short

MarvelRSVP RobbieVia HasLab: Marvel Legends HasLab Engine of Vengeance failed to hit its Early Bird goal for Robbie Reyes is a neat idea, but expensive, and one that continues a decline. Normally losing a few buyers is no big deal, but it is down close to 400 since last week.

As of Sunday night before posting the Monday update, it was 5,647 (and dipped by 2 immediately after posting. I believe its height was around 5,800 last week.) I noticed it dipped a bit every time I reloaded the page on Tuesday, and by press time overnight Tuesday it was down to 5,435. Short of a massively cool incentive, it is unlikely that Hasbro will have much success on this one. The Cobra HISS was both taller and longer - but I'm not sure about wider - and it was cheaper, with a lower minimum number of units to fund. At $250 the Engine of Vengeance would be a mighty tempting piece, but much like the overpriced (but close-to-barely-funding) Rancor, well, it's all up to you guys if you want to make it happen. At this rate I assume it'll get close to funding, but likely won't make it.

It would be my hope that we see some cheaper items, and if that means a basic item for $200 with a $50 add-on or just generally items that don't seem quite as expensive. To put it in perspective, while this car does have a lot of moving parts and some electronics, a similarly sized Fortnite Motorboat is under $100 and has a similar - if not possibly superior - amount of paint applications.
