Let's SDCC: Creative Beast

SDCCComic-Con is on, but I have to work - so I only got a brief look around at press time. I started with Creative Beast, a gorgeous line of indie dinosaur toys. On display were production pieces of a number of existing velociraptors, plus a few prototypes of those and the upcoming Ceratopsians line. The Kickstarter for the Triceratops and its ilk begins in September.

No pricing was given for the 1:12 scale Triceratops and friends, but these hefty figures are sized to go with your Marvel Legends and Black Series toys. The Raptors are 1:6 scale figures, designed for 12-inch humans.

Also, Hasbro's HasLab Unicron is big. Really big.

Transformers War for Cybertron Unicron Funding Begins

TransformersUnicronVia Hasbro Pulse and HasLab: Transformers: War for Cybertron Unicron. It already has outsold last week's launch Cookie Monster, but has a massive goal of 8,000 units.

The 30-inch tall robot has 47 days to raise the money, or it gets to be yet another footnote on TFWiki's unproduced Unicron toys page. Hasbro is asking for $4.6 million from US and Canada customers to get this made.

Also Acid Storm, Ion Storm, and Nova Storm are making the rounds - with no details.

So yeah. If you're in for War for Cybertron, start skipping meals kids.

GBAConsolizer Full Case Pre-orders

GameBoyReal Parts, New ShellVia Game-Tech.us: GBAConsolizer Full Case fully assembled. This $349.95 gadget lets you use a Super NES pad to play your GameBoy family of games on an HDTV - it's made using existing game hardware and some new parts. It's also really expensive.

Other than clone consoles like the Retron 5, there aren't many ways to play this family of games on your HDTV. You can use a Super GameBoy on an Analogue Super NT or Retron/HD Super Nintendo, but that won't let you play GameBoy Color or GameBoy Advance games. At this time there are no known upcoming mass-produced clone consoles to play these games.

TurboGrafx-16 Mini Lineup Includes 49 Games, Including Dracula X

Video GamesIs There Any Way to Stop It?Via Konami: TurboGrafx-16 Mini Includes 50 Games!. Neutopia is on there twice.

The line-up is a feast of riches, depending on the final cost this Amazon-exclusive micro console may well rival Sega's box. Japanese games are included, as are a ton of shooting games.

A Multitap is sold separately - maybe a USB hub will work - for 6-player games.

But this isn't important. What's important is the games you get in the US version - Salamander. Gradius and Gradius II: The Ambition of Gofer. Dracula X: Rondo of Blood. Snatcher. And three different Bomberman games. Unless the emulation is garbage, it seems perfect.

They even went through the trouble of omitting Keith Courage in Alpha Zones.
