Toy Fair 2013: Hasbro Nerf Rebelle

HasbroNerf for the pink aisle! Hasbro Nerf Rebelle Bows and Arrows and Blasters aim to bring the ladies over to Nerf-style shootin', traditionally a boy's play pattern. The items' functionality was fun to see tested, but the coloring seems a little odd. Heck, so does the branding. But it's a start, and in the era of Katniss this sort of thing needs to be tried, after all it might be a big missed opportunity! Or future fodder for VH-1's "I Love the 2010s."

Toy Fair 2013: Diamond Select Toys Star Trek

Outer Space MenMegaplexIt's time, and it was on time too! Store Horsemen Pre-Orders for Colossus Rex, Orbitron, and Gemini Are Live! The long-awaited painted versions of the figures are $50 plus shipping, and due around the end of the month.

My set was $62.00 shipped, and here's hoping they switch away from FedEx to a cheaper, more reliable shipping, less squashed method in the future.

Best/Worst/Best-Kept "Secret" New Jurassic Park 3-D Toys

Jurassic ParkMarmotsFirst up: seemingly official, packaged photography of New Toys R Us Exclusive Jurassic Park 3D Toys show long-rumored new sculpted dinosaurs, plus what appear to be new "Jurassic Joes" like we've been drooling over for the last few years. Pictured in this JPtoys.net gallery are Allosaurus Assault and Pachyrhinosaurus Clash, each of which looks pretty dang slick. We anticipate these are $29.99 each.

This gallery shows some figures out of the box, but they're advance samples. Reports indicate these are hitting California now, meaning that a) Hasbro got a line out without announcing it, and yet b) we knew about these for several years. The samples showing up have big yellow stickers covering some of the other toys Hasbro opted to not release right now, meaning they might make the rounds for Jurassic Park 4 or some future commemorative series.

New Jurassic Park Repacks Hitting

Jurassic ParkRexToys R Us, in addition to some all-new molded 2-packs, is now stocking some repackaged versions of certain 2009 releases. For example, Battle Growlers Tyrannosaurus Rex is shipping alongside an electronic Raptor for $19.99 each (they were $16.99 last time), and a few other items are showing up as well including 4 "Dino Trackers" (Jurassic Park III repaints) and 4 pack-in dinosaur 2-packs. They're pretty good, and there are some changes. Allow me to illustrate.

Not BillyIn the 2009 line, we got a repackaged Billy Brennan figure with a camo glider. In 2011, the same figure and dinosaur and accessories are released as "Sky Patrol" and the body now has Grant's head in Toys R Us' official images and on the sample I saw at Toys R Us. The dino 2-packs are $6.99, and Growlers are $19.99, and the Humans are $9.99. The all-new Dino Showdown sets are $29.99 per and, if you ask me, are the most interesting for the asking price.

The packaging is very similar, but not identical. The new figures have a "The Bite Is Back" logo on it, new copyright dates on the packaging, and other tweaks. As I did not get the entire 2009 line, I may have to defer to you to actually check for some of the changes.

New Games for the Xbox 360 Live Arcade Released

Xbox Live ArcadeAlien SpidyXbox fans, it's time to download Alien Spidy, a $10/800-point game where, uh, a spider hangs out with an alien. Microsoft says:

"After losing contact with his explorer friend Virgi, our fearless alien hero Spidy heads to Earth in his spacecraft to find her. While entering the Earth's atmosphere, his spacecraft suddenly fails and starts to break up, causing Spidy to crash-land on the strange planet, with his craft scattered across forests, throughout ponds and into dark caves. Spidy finds himself alone on an alien world and faces the epic challenge of tracking down Virgi, battling strange new enemies and finding the missing pieces from his spacecraft in order to repair the damage and make their escape home."

Also new is Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, a $15/1,200-point platformer which seems to say it's a very 1980s title from its own description.

SDCC Batusi Batman - Is That Shag Art on the Box?

BatmanBanimonVia TNI: Mattel's 2013 SDCC Exclusive Batman Retro Classic TV Series Batusi Batman Figure Revealed! The amazing thing is that the "Batusi Batman" for Comic-Con has a box that's very clearly inspired by the artwork of Shag, and we do not know at this time if it's actual Shag artwork or pending litigation.

Depending on your musical tastes, you'll know Shag from a) his gallery work, b) the stickers of his characters sold at record shops, or c) his artwork from 7" records from bands like Man or Astro-Man and Servotron in the 1990s. Regardless, this is a killer exclusive with gorgeous packaging.

UPDATE: We have been told this is indeed Shag's art. Wowzers!

Capcom Bringing Back DuckTales, D&D This Year

Video GamesDuckTalesIt's not a lot of hyperbole to say that Capcom's upcoming rerelease of a remastered NES DuckTales is a big deal. With old licensing deals and the like, seeing a game like this brought back (and redrawn with voice samples) is nothing short of miraculous, but thankfully large corporations can put their differences aside in order to make some easy money off the increasingly rare untapped nostalgia market.

The port is being done by WayForward, and they brought us the better-than-it-should've-been Contra IV for Nintendo DS. Also, the teaser trailer is about as hyped-up as they come.

With slightly less hyperbole and fanfare also comes Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, which collects rarely-released arcade games Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara.

These titles are slated to be ported to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U this summer. D&D will also get a PC port.
