Hasbro Wolverine Movie Toys Hitting

MarvelWolverineOver the weekend (actually late last week) brick and mortar stores and online shops got in their new Hasbro Wolverine Toys and Action Figures which we should point out have wildly divergent prices. The suggested retail on the 3 3/4-inch action figures is about $5.99 but certain stores where toys are them are about $9.99 each - so you may wish to weigh where you buy these things.

I have yet to see the "Nerf Claw" in person, but the figures all look pretty decent.

Retro Not-Kenner Six Million Dollar Man Figures

TVSteve AustinThe most gorgeous thing you'll see this week comes from a company you've never heard of. Zica Toys is doing The Six Million Dollar Man in a style not unlike Kenner's post-Star Wars output of the late 1970s and early 1980s - that means knee joints and The Empire Strikes Back-era sculpting. It's amazing, and you're going to love it. I don't care if you've never seen the show, neither have I. It's wonderful. Splendiferous.

Playstation 3: Japan Getting D&D Chronicles of Chronicles of Mystara Boxed Set

PS3Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of MystaraUber-importer NCS has the scoop: Remember Me is getting a fancy pants (read: expensive) boxed set with arcade cabinet decal reproductions, a soundtrack CD, rubber coasters, and a ton of other stuff.

It's JPY12,000 and the import going rate seems to be about $180. I assume an Xbox version is unlikely, in Japan anyway. The good news is that the Japanese release will be compatible with US and European PS3 consoles.

Fastest Hot Wheels Car of All Time?

Hot WheelsDatsunI was wondering what (if any) Hot Wheels car had been dubbed "fastest" and found out that for a while, it turns out that a Matchbox car held the title. The Blue Real Riders Club has an article WHO HAS THE FASTEST HOT WHEELS CAR? that held a tournament to find exactly that, and there's a few pages to wade through to find out that there are a couple of cars which are pretty speedy.

I am still looking to see if anyone keeps a database of this information because that'd be a fantastic thing to add to a wiki somewhere. This article isn't particularly new, but it's new to me and I thought worth sharing.

New Hot Wheels Mail-In, Just Add Effort

Hot WheelsToys R Us 2013 Hot Wheels Collector Edition Purple Passion Woody PromotionRemember the Moss Man mail-in like ten years ago? The new Toys "R" Us 2013 Hot Wheels Collector Edition Purple Passion Woody Promotion is kind of the same deal, but even more of a drag on the postal system. You're going to need a large envelope.

The exclusive car costs $3.50 plus the purchase of 20 cars - but it gets complicated. You have to buy 20 cars - but they have to be from Toys R Us, and it has to be purchased between June 30 and August 31. Then, you have to send in the receipts and the entire cardback from 20 cars to Mattel. So basically, this nifty $1 mail-in car will set you back at least $5 in supplies, plus cars. It's sort of a lot of hoops to jump through, but that is the price of love.

That's one way to clear out the stores!

Super7 Confirms ALIEN SDCC Plans, Steals Show

ALIENEarly BirdsProof positive that somebody "gets it," the Super7 will offer FOUR different ALIEN ReAction Figure exclusives at San Diego Comic Con!

Two of the items are free, but you're going to want to shell out some money for these. Free items include figure stands and catalogs, while paid items include Early Bird kits and gorgeous faux prototype figures.

First up: the faux-totypes.

A limited number of blue figures were cast to look like the real (and fake) "Blue Harvest" prototypes commonly seen in the 1990s. This huge gallery shows you pretty dang much everything you could possibly want to see.

Faux Prototypes

It comes to you in a small box similar to Kenner's mail-in offers of the 1970s and 1980s, with a tongue-in-cheek letter about how the "upcoming" line would be a huge hit in 1979. The set is $40. No edition size given.

Early Bird Kit

Next up: an actual Early Bird Kit. The set is $100 and is the empty box gambit from 1977 that kicked off Star Wars - you pay for the set and get a stage, some stickers, and basically what amounts to a slavish recreation of the Kenner original with one key difference: you get five figures this time.

Stands and Deliver

There are also some free Display Stands. These are going to be the sleeper hit of the show, I'm already sweating how I will get 2-7 of them for my other figures.

Click here for the full press release and many more photographs.

New $1 Hot Wheels Enterprise, Now with Damage

Hot WheelsNew EnterpriseWe looked at the "clean" version a few weeks ago, and now we know that the Hot Wheels U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 is getting a battle-damaged makeover starting late July. It's in Mattel's latest round of sneak peeks.

We at 16bit.com HQ have managed to find but one of the non-damaged version so far, and I'm not exaggerating when I say we pawed through thousands of cars at dozens of stores. As such, keep an eye open for this one.

OuyaOuyaIt's here! Non-Kickstarter people can buy the Ouya game console today! Not many games are up for it yet, but the Android-based console has been available to Kickstarter supporters for a little while now. Supposedly the retail box version is a little different and has made a few improvements, and I'm looking for reviews to verify if this is true. It has downloadable games and 8GB of on-board storage, but is expandable with your USB hard drives and whatnot.

Supposedly it's in Target, Best Buy, Amazon, and GameStop today! Good luck with that. Amazon had/has it, it was $99.99.

Sucklord Presents S.U.C.K.L.E. Mini-Figures

ToysSucklordOn Kickstarter, and wildly inappropriate for kids, a new mini-figure line called S.U.C.K.L.E. (Simply Unimportant Collectable Kitschy Little Eyesores) has already far surpassed its goal and hit a stretch goal to include glow-in-the-dark figures, bringing 30 figures to a $40 pledge.

The language in the video and character names aren't remotely family friendly, but they are consistent with the artist behind the figures known to most as Sucklord. Suckadelic, DKE, and George Gaspar of October Toys are working on this project and it seems to be pretty successful so far.

Mordle Drop Today - New Comic for Club Mordle Members

Hot WheelsUzalekOvernight yesterday, we got an email from John Kent of ToyFinity to Origin of the Species, the first-ever ToyFinity comic which has some pretty awesome artwork (in which you see very few Mordles) but you get a look at the creation of the Mordles and another familiar toy character who has been reviewed on this very site. It's neat, and you'll dig it if you're a member. If you aren't, I'm not sure when you can see it.

The ToyFinity Store Opens to the Public at 9:00 PM Eastern so you can snag Mordles if you are so inclined - and you probably are. Click here to see our review of the yellow ones and click here to see our review of the blue ones. And remember, the yellow ones include a Manglors egg!
