Yet Another Ultimate Retro Console

Video GamesLinkVia many: Japan Getting RetroFreak Game Console. It doesn't play everything, but it does play NES, Famicom, Genesis, Mega Drive, the GameBoy family, PC Engine/TurboGrafx 16, and apparently lets you download games into it. And it has HDMI out.

Translations show some added detail, but things like "price" and "US availability" remain to be seen. This is certainly the most ambitious one of these consoles, so let's stay tuned and then balk at the $200+ price tag.

F.A.O. Schwarz Closing Last Store (For Now)

ToysLinkVia the Hollywood Reporter: F.A.O. Schwarz, Toy Store in 'Big,' to Close Its Fifth Avenue Location.

Since being purchased by Toys R Us, this location is, pretty much, a fancier Toys R Us without the usual level of mass-market glitz. I made it a point to stop there during Toy Fair if there's time between meetings and dinners, usually to snag some Playmobil or (more generally) to find out it closed around 7 PM and I get to walk back in the snow empty-handed. Such is the way of things. The store may reopen, so says the article, but it's not like TRU has done much with the Kay-Bee or eToys brand names it owns lately.

What's particularly depressing is that even though this was effectively a reskinned TRU, it also means that yet another toy store from the 20th Century has (temporarily?) bit the dust. Kay-Bee, ToyCo, Lionel PlayWorld, eToys, Zany Brainy, and numerous other stores regional and national are all gone.

Even more retron! The Super7 x Funko Alien ReAction Alien (with Metallic Flesh) is charming as it takes an unproduced design from the 1970s and applies a produced design with it - this makes a figure that's even more Kennery than the Kenner prototype, as it uses the deco of the original jumbo figure.

Big Lots Carrying Cheap Glass Bottle Sodas

SodaFrostieIf you frequent Big Lots! while hunting for weird small Transformers, you might have noticed displays with Moon Pies and glass-bottled sodas. Frostie Root Beer, various ginger beers, prickly pear sodas, and other things I usually drive out of my way to pay $2 a bottle for (once in a big while) are being sold for 75 cents a whack - which is pretty cheap for this stuff these days.

I don't know if this a test market or if there will be more - the sign on the unfinished display showed cardboard soda caddies which were not present - but you might want to keep an eye out for this stuff. (If they start stocking Jolt all bets are off.)
