Review: Hasbro Transformers Studio Series 86 Perceptor

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Studio Series 86 PerceptorSomething 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!

Pretty dang good! The Hasbro Transformers Studio Series 86 Perceptor is still hitting stores with 3 movie guys, and he's usually the first one to go. While not quite as robust as the Titans Return toy, it's a surprisingly fun action figure that contorts into a decent but non-working toy microscope. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Wheeljack from Transformers Authentics Hitting USA

TransformersWheeljackVia me on Twitter: Work in progress for FOTD, it's Transformers Authentics Alpha Wheeljack. He's pretty good - Bumblebee and Optimus were on the lower end, Wheeljack's on the higher end. The $11 figure is about the same size as current Voyagers and Leaders, and is pretty fun if you can find him. I got one at a Fry's Marketplace grocery store over the weekend.

The Authentics toys are mostly sold overseas, but US Food/Drug/Value stores stock them. Hasbro tends to only put about one or two new molds per year in its Alpha and Bravo size classes, which make them easy/cheap to collect, also because pretty much nobody cares about them you may actually find them. He'll be in Figure of the Day soon, but for $10.99 I'd say go run out and get one.

MiSTer Saturn Core Coming Along

MiSTerSaturnVia GitHub and elsewhere: Saturn_MiSTer. You can grab it and compile it. There are single and dual SDRAM builds, and word on the street has it that it loads and plays a lot of games fairly well. (I haven't tested it yet.)

This probably means you/I should get a Sega Saturn controller adapter cable now. USB Sega Saturn controllers are cheap and widely available, but for those of us with the 3D Analog pads or Fight Sticks, well. They're good.

Star Wars Review: Death Watch Mandalorian (The Vintage Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Death Watch Mandalorian (The Vintage Collection). It's a new sculpt and one of Habsro's very best. The range of motion is great, the center of gravity is good, and the joints move pretty freely so you won't feel "stuck" in a weird position. You'll love it. Buy an army. Read the whole review.

Review: Playmobil "Fi?ures" Figures Day of the Dead Man

Figure of the DayPlaymobil Something 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 dead man's party! The Playmobil "Fi?ures" Figures Day of the Dead Man is a figure that's unsurprisingly more expensive when people sell identified figures, because it's awesome. The level of painted detail is excellent, with lots of gold accents, bone markings, a belt, and a uniquely painted face that is going to go well in pretty much any figure collection. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Star Wars Review: Fennec Shand (The Vintage Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Fennec Shand (The Vintage Collection). This is one of the better figures - great likeness, excellent articulation, this is a figure that shows considerable improvement over the figures we got just five to ten years ago. You should get this one - it's a good character, a good costume, and a fantastic figure that will put a lot of other releases to shame. Read the whole review.

Review: Hasbro Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee Legacy Deluxe Silverstreak Action Figure

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee Legacy Deluxe Silverstreak 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!

In stores now! The Hasbro Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee Legacy Deluxe Silverstreak Action Figure is a sharp repaint of Bluestreak, who shares molds with Barricade, Prowl, and Smokescreen. This one is pretty sharp and not a common coloring for these molds, so take a look and check your store for availability - the yellow on the crest varies a bit from figure to figure. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Walmart Transformers Legacy Beast Pre-Orders Delayed

TransformersDelayedVia Walmart: Transformers Legacy Deluxe Sandstorm, Nightprowler, and Buzzsaw delayed. While these items are showing up in US stores, a number of people (myself included) got email delay notices on their pre-orders, moving from May 18 to July 20. And then another later to "some time between May 18 and July 20."

As such, don't be shocked if you see these in stores, and also if you try to cancel your pre-order and can't. People are finding these, so check your order status and remember your mileage may vary because some people have purchased these already in a store.
