Review: Hasbro Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Kingdom Leader Rodimus Prime Action Figure

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Kingdom Leader Rodimus Prime 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!

A lot of gear! The Hasbro Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Kingdom Leader Rodimus Prime Action Figure is a fancier than Optimus but not as fancy as other $80 figures. The gear is amazing! The figure isn't terribly big - but it seems hard to imagine more stuff coming with a Voyager (or small Leader) class figure, and upgrade sets would cost a lot more. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Not G.I. Joe - Roboskull MKII Vehicle on Kickstarter

G.I. JoeAction, ManVia Kickstarter: ROBOSKULL MKII - Action Figure Vehicle. It's $219 and comes with one exclusive 3 3/4-inch figure - and removable seats so you can fit in two 3 3/4-inch figures or one 6-inch figure.

The ship takes more than a few design cues from the UK Action Force Roboskull, which costs significantly more these days.

A number of compatible figures and vehicles are also available to order, so take a look if you need more very big things.

HasLab G.I. Joe Skystriker - $230

G.I. JoeVictory SaberVia Hasbro Pulse: G.I. Joe Skystriker. It's $230 and 3 3/4-inch O-Ring size, and comes with at least two figures and a lot of gear.

Fans, of course, were asking for the U.S.S. Flagg... which is unlikely. The original one sold at Sears for $109.99, while the Skystriker was $22.99. Not even factoring in freight, it would be a safe bet that the Flagg would be at least a thousand bucks if it were to happen. This set isn't too shabby given the size and complexity of the plane and the fact you might get quite a few new retro figures in the box. It's not as cheap as things were in 1985, but it's a lot cheaper than it would have been as a convention exclusive.

The Rancor Monster also launched for $349.99.

It's Hasbro Pulse Con, Charlie Brown

HasbroPulse ConVia Hasbro Pulse: PulseCon. Since San Diego and New York events were skipped by Hasbro, they're running panels today and tomorrow from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM Eastern, with product going on sale at 5:00 PM. Exclusive product will only be on Pulse, but you can get other stuff elsewhere.

Speculation has it that new HasLab items will be revealed or teased today, including the worst-kept-secret, The Black Series Rancor monster creature.

For non-exclusive items, I work at Entertainment Earth and we'll be offering free shipping on many of the new pre-orders. Keep an eye on that link for today's new reveals, which should include Star Wars, Power Rangers, Transformers, and... that may be it actually. Theoretically your other favorite online stores will also be putting these up today as well, but they don't pay me, so they don't get a link. Sorry, I don't make the rules. (Actually I do.)

Review: Playmobil "Fi?ures" Figures Witch Figure

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!

Clearance find! The Playmobil "Fi?ures" Figures Witch Figure is not a particularly recent release, but older mystery figures have been showing up at deep discounters - so you may see them for $1 or $2 somewhere. This one is green and purple with a huge mole and bad teeth, making it one of the more colorful entries in the coven of figures Playmobil has put out. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

New Transformers Legacy Previewed

TransformersShoukiVia Iggin: New Transformers: Generations Legacy Figure Line Announced by Hasbro. Legacy Skids looks like Skids, and Bulkhead seems to be inspired a bit by his Prime incarnation's head with a body that could be a retool/pretool for Optimus Prime or perhaps even a Dark of the Moon movie-inspired Galvatron. Or G2 Pyro, or goodness knows what.

These and others will be sold as part of PulseCon's reveals this weekend at site sponsor Entertainment Earth as well as other outlets where I do not theoretically get paid. Items will be going on sale Friday afternoon around 5:00 PM Eastern/2:00 PM Pacific along with Star Wars. Marvel and others will be on Saturday around the same time.

Star Trek Playmobil Spock's Ears and Eyes

PlaymobilEars Looking at YouVia my Twitter: I've had some "what's inside Star Trek Playmobil Spock's head?" questions. Well, here you are.

It's a new head - the eyes and mouth are painted, the ears are molded as part of the noggin. As such, he can't wear many (or possibly any) existing unmodified hair pieces. You can put his hair piece on others, though.

Generally once Playmobil makes a new piece, but not always, it'll get reused in a few sets. It would not surprise me one bit to find out we'll someday see The Lord of the Rings or other elf-adjacent figures use this part somehow.

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Authentics Bravo Ratchet 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!

A cheap one! The Hasbro Transformers Authentics Bravo Ratchet Action Figure is a de facto food and drug and value exclusive in the USA - so far I'm seeing them only at grocery stores, Walgreens, Five Below, and the occasional Family Dollar. It's $5-$7, and it's pretty neat for that price. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Revisited: Playmobil 6687 Super 4 Lost Island Figure Set

PlaymobilPlaymobil 6687 Super 4 Lost Island Figure SetA few years ago I reviewed this Playmobil 6687 Super 4 Lost Island Figure Set.

It was $20 but sold poorly in the US and got distribution at Toys R Us and not many other spots. It was clearanced out for as little as $5. Since it had an alien, a raptor, and a nice figure, I bought it - but it turns out the set works like a charm with the recent Star Trek release. Take a look!

Adam's Old Toys The old Star Trek sets were often a mix of studio backlots and very colorful environments which (along with shows like Batman) were showcases for the then-new and increasingly popular color TV sets. Some of these plants were used in other sets - the weird, knobby brown tree can be found in the dinosaur themes - but the strange fanned-out palm frond was unique to a couple of Super 4 sets. It's about as good as you can hope to get for a retro mid-century TV sci-fi playset, even if it's unintentional.

Since there are no known plans for additional Star Trek sets, and the Enterprise with a group of seven figures is the only item on the market right now, you might want to go through your older sets for some off-the-shelf display opportunities. If they ever get to 90s Trek, I'm hoping we get some sort of Star Trek Caves playset - you'd get a lot of use out of one.
