Review: Hasbro Transformers Studio Series Autobot Hot Rod Action Figure

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Studio Series Autobot Hot Rod 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!

It's a remake to end all remakes! The Hasbro Transformers Studio Series Autobot Hot Rod Action Figure is probably as good as this character can get for this price point - with amazing paint, extra accessories, and the best Hot Rod head sculpt I've ever seen, it's worth paying the $10 premium for a toy this size. There are a couple of parts that were cast in yellow that would look better in another color, but at least they're largely hidden in robot mode. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more!

New Arcade Game Jamma Board - Really!

Video GamesBoardVia Kickstarter Twin Tiger Shark - not the SAME! It's a JAMMA board - which means it's designed to be plugged into 1980s & 1990s arcade cabinets! If you have one. Maybe you do! I don't know what's in your house.

It's about $180 for the board, which is cheaper than I would have guessed. Or presumably it'll be playable on MAME if they ever sell the ROM.

New Predators, Aliens Hitting

PredatorCity HunterVia Walmart: 7" Predator Figure - City Hunter figures are showing up in stores, as are the 7-inch Alien figures from Lanard Toy. I found all six over the weekend - they're about $9.84 each, and are basically a Hasbro Marvel Legends figure. The articulation isn't as good as boasted on-pack - I'd say the Predator has at best 20 when the box boasts 25 joints - but it's still absolutely worth the asking price if you can find one.

You can't order them online yet, but if you're out getting groceries and weed killer it might be worth a detour to the toy section during the non-busy shopping hours with the other vampires. Safe hunting.

GameBoy on Kickstarter: The Shapeshifter

GameBoyProceedVia Kickstarter: New Cartridge Game 'The Shapeshifter' - 2021. The cheapest cartridge release is about 35 Euros, which isn't all that bad. Other games are included depending on which tiers you pick, and the ETA is May of this year. That sounds pretty neat.

The gimmick is you become what you touch - so animals like turtles or butterflies can help you get through this adventure game.
