Review: Hasbro Marvel Legends X-Men Iceman

Figure of the DayHasbro Marvel Legends X-Men IcemanSomething 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!

Freeze! The Hasbro Marvel Legends X-Men Iceman is a new version of one of the most famous mutants... outside the movies. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more!

More Transformers Robots in Disguise at SDCC Breakfast

ScreamTransformersVia SDCC: Hasbro Collector/Fan Breakfast Robots in Disguise Transformers Toys.

Aside from the previously-seen Liokaiser, Hasbro debuted Legends-class Gnaw and Bumblebee - both required updates for you - as well as Titan Masters Sawback and Overboard. The Walgreens-exclusive Brainstorm was shown (a toy-based redeco of the SDCC exclusive) as was Voyager-class triple changer Megatron. It looks like many of the non-exclusives are set for around January, with Brainstorm being either August or November - probably November. More from SDCC tomorrow!

--AP

More He-Man - Super7 "The Curse of the Three Terrors"

Fight!TransformersVia YouTube and presumably Super7: The Curse of the Three Terrors! This was sold at the show on VHS (really) and projected on a building in downtown San Diego, giving you about 10 new minutes of 1983-esque He-Man animation. Alan Oppenheimer - who voiced Skeletor and Mer-Man and others - is back to lend his pipes to some of his more famous evil warriors over 30 years after the show stopped getting new episodes.

<

The animation isn't quite the same as the original Filmation He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, but the old character designs are very similar and the new guys - of which toys were sold in San Diego - aren't bad. Give it a few minutes, it's a nifty tribute to a classic cartoon.

SDCC Transformers Breakfast Reveals Liokaiser

LiokaiserTransformersthe Hasbro PR breakfast: Transformers Generations Liokaiser. This Entertainment Earth exclusive is due out later this year.

Other highlights: Sawback (Lione), Overboard (Overkill), Gnaw, Bumblebee, Megatron, and confirmation of Walgreens Brainstorm. Courtesy of a box shot of Megatron, we also now know we're getting Fangry, another Optimus Prime, Triggerhappy, and Sixshot if you were in denial of previous leaks. More on this stuff later, but I can confirm Bumblebee was designed to have a Titan Masters pilot.

Due to exhaustion and meetings, updates are going to be slow. See you next week.

Captain Power Gets a Reboot

Remember Him? Of Course You Don't.SDCCVia CBR: 'Captain Power' Reboot Series in Development, Heading to SDCC.

Captain Power will be rechristened "Phoenix Rising". For those of you not old enough to remember, the TV show tied in to the toy line through interactive electronics. Toys should "shoot" the TV show, and the TV show could send signals so the toys would be "damaged." It was a really clever idea at what was basically the end of the 1980s toy/TV marriage, but it didn't last very long and few seem to remember it. It was, however, a thing that was heavily requested for a revival.

For those keeping track, most of the 1980s toy brands you remember are getting snapped up one way or another. Well, some are. Dino-Riders is supposedly optioned for a movie.

Ghostbusters, Movie Rating Aggregation, and You

StatsGhostbustersVia FiveThirtyEight: ‘Ghostbusters’ Is A Perfect Example Of How Internet Movie Ratings Are Broken.

Numerous ratings of a movie unseen by the masses are an interesting thing to contemplate - I remember seeing numerous toys rated on a fan site years ago, several months before the first one shipped. Similarly people rate movies and TV they don't see and will never see, which is something you no doubt know by now. Some shows aren't for everybody - for example, I doubt anyone reading this was meant to like Dora the Explorer at their current age.
