Missed Music in Multitudes

MusicTawny vs. EverythingVia Castle Face Records: Damaged Bug - Bug On Yonkers was announced and seemingly already sold out - I contacted a local record shop that says they can get some, but it doesn't seem to be available in physical form online anywhere. Bandcamp has the digital for $7 and it should be out July 24. It sounds good so far.

But there's more! Guerilla Toss is releasing Human Girl right now - it's a 2-track single and as far as I can tell there's no physical release to be bought yet. I don't know if it's digital-only.

Shantae Getting Long Overdue GameBoy Color Reissue

GameBoyShantaeVia Limited Run Games: Shantae GameBoy Color reissue September 2020. This is a big deal - the original came out late in the console's run from Capcom, after most people moved on to other platforms. It's highly-regarded and rather expensive, so a hopefully cheaper reissue should sell decent numbers. I'll buy one.

Nintendo SwitchMore Moons, More CursesPS4 and Switch fans will get physical releases of Bloodstained Curse of the Moon 2. While no date was given, it was also announced on the Limited Run Games Instagram - along with a whole bunch of other things, like a Monkey Island collection.

Mini Sega Astro City Mini Candy Cabinet with Console Features

SegaBlackVia Kotaku, Sega, and more: Sega Announces Mini Arcade Cabinet Filled With 36 Games. Sega is apparently now in the toy and IP business!

While there is no US release known for this or the GameGear, the cabinet looks neat - not only is it a collectible, but it has an HDMI-out and a USB controller port with a pretty nice controller. Cames include Altered Beast, Alien Syndrome, Fantasy Zone, Golden Axe, and a bunch more not yet announced. At a bit more than 7-inches wide, the controls don't look like they're as cramped as some - but they're still small.

I definitely want that joy pad.

Mossy Glyos Incoming from Spaced Out Design

GlyosAh ShootVia the Glyos News Dump: Get Spaced Out Thursday - New Glyos Incoming is the first new good news we've had in a while, in light of SDCC's non-con being vague and there being no holidays in the USA until Labor Day.

It looks like Spaced Out Design has mossy deco and a new head, which is a win if you ask me.

Back to the Future Transformers Gigawatt Comes and Goes

TransformersGigawattVia Hasbro: GREAT SCOTT! TRANSFORMERS-BACK TO THE FUTURE COLLABORATION INTRODUCES 'GIGAWATT' CHARACTER - AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER NOW! It didn't launch on time, the sneaker bots bought them all, and fans are rightly cranky. There should be more later, but this launch was for 1,985 pieces - many of which are already up for pre-flip on eBay for over $700, because people are monsters.

Hasbro Pulse and other stores unlisted will be offering a second release of this item on or around October 1. This is to tie in to IDW's new crossover comic book. The exact quote from Hasbro for you to decipher: "The GIGAWATT figure is available now for pre-order at Walmart.com with only 1,985 pieces available that feature an exclusive, limited edition numbered package in honor of the 35th anniversary of the first film's release - July 3, 1985. A second variant release of the figure will be available starting October 1, 2020 via HasbroPulse.com and select retailers around the world; part one of the comic book also will be available October 1, wherever comic books are sold."

At the very least this means the packaging can be changed, but for all I know there are deco or accessory changes too. I was unable to order it, but I heard there was a limit of 12 - which isn't much of a limit, given the edition size.
