Star Wars Review: Greef Karga (The Vintage Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Greef Karga (The Vintage Collection). He's based on the season two costume, which looks great - that means he traded the mustache for a beard, and it's a little thin on this figure. Still, the costume translates nicely to a toy and the range of motion is pretty good considering his robes. The blaster has a working holster, too. Read the whole review.

Analogue to Frustrate Fans Today

Video GamesGood Luck, EverybodyVia Analogue: Super Nt will be restocked in Classic, SF, and Black. Available April 9, 2021 at 8am PDT. Limit 2 per customer.

Also: The very last Nt Mini Noirs will be available April 9, 2021 at 8am PDT. Limit 1 per customer.

While the company actually did have some inventory of their items for a while a couple of years ago, stuff tended to get snapped up quickly after the COVID-19 pandemic started. (The Mega Sg was in stock for quite some time.) As much as I'd love to get an Nt Mini Noir I assume it will be sold out before I can add it to the cart.

Nintendo Switch This Week

Nintendo SwitchPAC-MAN 99 This week's batch of titles on the eShop: The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV, and over a dozen more like Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire.

For Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, you can play PAC-MAN 99 for free - which looks a lot like Super Mario 35 or Tetris 99, but with elements of Pac-Man and Pac-Man Champion Edition games mixed in.

Review: Lanard Toy Alien 7-Inch Warrior Xeno Action Figure

Figure of the DayLanard Toy Alien 7-Inch Warrior Xeno 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!

Clean but dirty! The Lanard Toy Alien 7-Inch Warrior Xeno Action Figure is blue, just like in the... well, nothing. It's a weird figure in that the colors and deco indicate some specialty art/designer item, but it's sold at Walmart - and sold out at Walmart - for a bargain basement price. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more!

Transformers Ark, Galvatron, and Scorponok Revealed

The Ark gets its first-ever transforming toy - and not much of a name - alongside a new G1 Galvatron and Beast Wars Scorponok - which looks excellent. Pre-orders are going to follow pretty much everywhere this week.

Kickstarter - MST3K Announces App, New Episodes

KickstarterThe New OldVia Kickstarter: Let's Make More MST3K & Build THE GIZMOPLEX! Up to a dozen new episodes and shorts - and live events - are on deck for this if it gets funded. New episodes as early as the fall, they say. Is it possible? I mean, sure, I guess. The last batch went out to Netflix and I assume this is going to be completely funded by dinnertime tonight.

The thing is to fund a new business which seems to be a subscription model for a service that's just MST3K, and depending on the subscription it's about $10/month. So it's like Netflix, with less content.

Star Wars Review: The Child (The Black Series 6-Inch)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Child (The Black Series 6-Inch). This one was packed with Target's exclusive 6-inch Mando, and has an arm permanently raised, reaching out. Also the flying pram from the end of season one. It's tiny, but is it worth a $15 upcharge over a standard Mandalorian figue... that you'll probably never ever see in stores anyway? Read the whole review.

NES - Two More Kickstarters End This Week

NESThe New OldVia Kickstarter: Ghoul Grind: Night of the Necromancer. I just found out about this one - it ends in the morning today, and already hit its goal. $35 for a cartridge, $55 for a boxed one, and the estimate for delivery is October. So assume December or January. There is a demo.

Also on Kickstarter, and ending Thursday, is Magnilo - New Action Adventure game playable on the NES. It's already funded - $40 for a cartridge, $50 for a boxed game, and oh boy howdy there are other bonus items.

New - and available! The Hasbro Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Kingdom Voyager Optimus Primal Action Figure is going to get a barely-different redeco at Walmart, but this is the first version you may find in stores now. He's small, but it's Optimus so he's going to sell anyway. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more!

Star Wars Review: R5-Series Astromech Droid White with Purple Panels

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: R5-Series Astromech Droid White with Purple Panels. This sat unopened in my basement for a while, but this is a really cool design with unique paint masks on the dome - and the same purple body you saw before. And it's from late 2015. Did you get one - is it too late? Read the whole review.

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Trilogy Sparkless Bot 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!

Clean but dirty! The Hasbro Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Trilogy Sparkless Bot Action Figure is a decent mold with a surprisngly ornate rusty deco applied to an otherwise uninteresting car. The level of detail is impressive, as is the fact that it's all tiny dots. In person, it's gorgeous - I hope you can find one. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more!

Analogue: SG, Super NT Coming and Pocket Delayed

Video GamesNopeVia Analogue's Twitter: Pocket is delayed and shipping in October 2021.

Super Nt will be restocked in April. Mega Sg and DAC shortly after.

The Super Nt and Mega Sg have been in stock for periods of time (but not in the last year), and the DAC has as well - so it's nice they're coming back. The Pocket has never been in stock and pre-orders came and went in minutes - it was also due around now, so you're probably not going to be able to get a pre-order in for quite some time.
