Star Wars Review: Axe Woves (The Black Series)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Axe Woves (The Black Series). It's a good one! An existing body was used with a different head and some different color configurations to deliver unto you another Mandalorian for your armies. Read the whole review.

More Manglors, More Knights of the Slice, More Bio-Masters

GlyosMangledVia the Glyos News Dump, we have news on three separate drops: Pre-Order Now: Manglors Wave 1.5 Menu, Mangord First Impressions. I got my Manglord on Monday, and he's impressive - but sold out! Thankfully ToyFinity is rerunning him, plus another colorway, plus more Mordles for a May release. Click for details.

DiveIf that weren't enough, we have a Toy Pizza Knights of the Slice Drop for February 6, 2023 . "It Came from the Caves" is the theme, with some bulky Diver molds in nifty new colors. One of these figures already sold out - heck, others probably did too. Click here to check availability at Knights of the Slice.

Millions of Leeches, Leeches for MeRounding out the week, we have a New Bio-Masters Drop on Friday Night at 9:00 PM CST. We don't know which figures it'll be, but a "Demons of the Deep" drop theme was mentioned. I missed out on last summer's new molds, so I'm hoping it will include some of those. (One is pictured.) Take a gander at the Bio=Mass Mutants if you haven't already done so.

That makes this a particularly eventful week for Glyos toys, and it's only Monday. The Healey Made Raider (Bulloch) is also still in stock as I write this.

Review: Hasbro Marvel Legends 375 Black Panther Action Figure

Figure of the DayHasbro Marvel Legends 375 Black Panther 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!

You'll glove him! This Hasbro Marvel Legends 375 Black Panther Action Figure adds some nifty lines to his gloves to give him a sort of comic art detail - it's not the way Kenner would have done it, but it looks cool! Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Another Raider: Now Available

GlyosBulloch PointsVia the Glyos News Dump: Available Now: Healey Made Raider (Bulloch). At press time, the Kenner-ish figure is still somehow in stock at $25. There have been a few Boba Fett-flavored figures, although for all I know it's a bigger run. If you've never bought a Raider, I'd recommend trying it out - if not this one, maybe when a weirder colorway comes out. (Shadow is still my favorite.)

Classic Review: October Toys OTMF Baby Deadbeet Mini-Figure from 2013

Figure of the DayOctober Toys OTMF Baby Deadbeet Mini-FigureA 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 10 years ago today! The October Toys OTMF Baby Deadbeet Mini-Figure was not only cheap, but it was pretty cool. When was the last time someone would sell out a low-run indie figure for $2? I really miss these guys, the October Toys crew did a spectacular job on them. Read on, it's a good one - and come back tomorrow for an all-new review!

That's Figure of the Day #3,000
February 3, 2023
Star Wars Review: Aayla Secura (The Black Series)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Aayla Secura (The Black Series). In the not-too-distant future, right now A.D., there as a guy named Adam not too different from you or me. And this is the Figure of the Day #3,000 - which is a milestone for what kicked off as a filler feature with diminishing returns. Thankfully, the figure is excellent and Hasbro did a great job with her. It's strange that she has pre-2020-style knees, but one of last year's finer figures is a keeper. Read the whole review.

Review: Outer Space Men Galactic Holiday Cobaltus of the Voidrillion Command Colossus Rex Action Figure

Figure of the DayOuter Space Men Galactic Holiday Cobaltus of the Voidrillion Co	mmand Colossus Rex 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!

Newish! I got this Outer Space Men Galactic Holiday Cobaltus of the Voidrillion Command Colossus Rex Action Figure last year and this is a winner. He's big and blue with pink highlights and extra accessories. He has armor and alternate hands, but the inclusion of Xodiac's staff and blaster plus Gemini's staff and blaster really sell it. You don't need it, but when has that ever stopped me? Do read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

New Healey Made Raider Saturday

GlyosRaidVia the Glyos News Dump: New Healey Made Raider Saturday, February 4. The Raiders are pretty fantastic figures and have come in dozens of colorways so far. They're not cheap, but they're about as close as you can get to a new old Kenner-style action figure... and I include Hasbro's own Kenner-style figures in the mix. These are generally, in terms of sculpt, closer to the original (old) article.

Price and colors are unknown, but it's 2:00 PM EST this weekend. These things tend to sell through fast.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Code Dumped

Super NESDisposable EverythingVia Neowin: Zelda: A Link to the Past can now be compiled on Windows and Nintendo Switch. The code has been reverse-engineered so you can do ports on a bunch of systems, plus new features like pixel shading are able to be used. Does it matter? Well, not to me, but someone will care. Widescreen aspect ratios may be the most important enhancement.

I would argue the original game is fine, but hey, you do you. You might be able to re-experience it in a new way, or at least play it for the first time. It's still a marvelous game.

Star Wars Review: Grogu (The Black Series)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Grogu (The Black Series). It's the accessories from the somewhat more-expensive-than-he-should-be $10 figure with a floating egg for $25. He's guaranteed to sell, the paint is fine, he's cute, but you might cringe and grit your teeth when you see him next to other $25 figures. You might cringe and grit your teeth when you see him next to $10 figures, because there's no level of "pretty good" that makes up for "this would be puny if it were a 3 3/4-inch release and it's a 6-inch release."
