Reminder: Cookie Monster Crowdfunding Ends Sunday (Monday) at Midnight

ToysCookie MonsterVia HasLab: Cookie Monster. Unicron's time is almost up, but Cookie Monster ends a bit sooner - when the clock ticks Monday, the funding period ends. It's a nice piece at a nice price, but has about 84% more to go. It's not impossible, as the Sail Barge didn't get funded (along with a bonus 3,000 units sold) until its final few days.

Unicron has about 11 days to go, and another 64% of its listed minimum order quantity.

SD Adapter for Analogue's HD Super NES, Sega Genesis Clones

Video GamesDACVia many and RetroRGB: Analogue DAC Prototypes Unveiled Super Nt/Mega Sg on CRT TVs! Analogue spilled the beans on the Digital Analog Converter recently, and these are new gizmos that allow you to hook up your Super NT and Mega Sg consoles to CRT monitors via RCA, RGB, S-Video, and other kinds of connections. This is particularly exciting because this may mean those of you with light gun games can actually use those, since HDTV light gun compatibility has proven to be problematic so far.

In short, your fancy perfect HDMI-compatible 16-bit consoles tailor-made for HDMI inputs on HD and 4K and maybe 8K displays now have an adapter to use on the big, heavy TVs that until recently, Goodwill wouldn't accept for free. I still keep a couple of them around, myself.

What's more, Trademarks Hint At A Game Boy Clone From The Aces At Analogue (NintendoLife and others.) "Analogue 8" would probably be a new NES clone, as the Analogue NT models are long gone, and Analogue Pocket would sensibly be a GameBoy clone of some sort. But nothing has been announced as of yet, so don't get your hopes up.

No pricing or release date is given - and depending on your hardware needs, it might not be worth your while to get these if you have vintage hardware. As my Sega stuff stops at RCA, this might be worth my while.

Hasbro Pulse Adds Seacons

TransformersSeaconsVia Hasbro Pulse: Takara Tomy Transformers Generations Selects Seacons. It's good news that you can get these for the Japanese prices, more or less, with US shipping rates. Unfortunately, those prices are double the going rate of typical Voyagers and Deluxes.

Six Decepticons are expected, and as the final combiner team for US fans to grab in a "Combiner Wars"-style update these are potentially more exciting than Unicron - and potentially about half that price.
