TMNT 1980s Figures Reissued at Toys R Us

Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesShredderIn stores now! The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Retro Collection are hitting Toys R Us stores as of last week for $12.99 each!

Cheap Four Horsemen Seventh Kingdom Still Buyable

Four HorsemenShieldy, RaaviaIf you like the just-closed Raven figures and are wanting to get some of the Four Horsemen's previous work, check out RavingToyManiac on eCrater. A limited number of the hard-to-find Seventh Kingdom figures are still there, including Shield of Draumm (Hippo) and Raavia (tiger) for $20 or less each. I asked the store's proprietor and found out that the $18 "loose armor" hippo figures have excellent packaging and paint jobs, it's just that a removable piece of the figure had fallen off in the package. I suspect they'll go pretty fast, but if they didn't you can snag one now on the cheap.

The guys at OAFE speak highly of the hippo and the cat lady, but warn of accessory breakage on the latter. So hey, go nuts!

Matty Conclusion: 2 No, 1 Yes

Matty CollectorMatty MeterIt's over! At MattyColletor.com, read Update: Final Count for 2014 Subscriptions for an update on what is or maybe isn't happening with the Ecto-1, DCUC, and MOTUC clubs. It's not all good news, but it's not all bad news either.

Club Eternia made it with 115% - you do indeed have the power! Mattel confirmed other bonus items may be sold in 2014, and won't be announced prior to Toy Fair 2014 in February. Also noteworthy: subscriptions will re-open should anyone else want to jump in now that it's a done deal.

The Ecto-1 Vehicle hit 36%, which isn't probably bad considering it's a $215 vehicle - it is not likely to go forward. Club Infinite Earths for DC Universe Classics hit 63%, also making it unlikely to continue in its current form. Rumors of a mini-subscription for the revealed figures persist, as does the possibility that remaining figures could be sold as SDCC exclusives next year or in the future.

Star Trek Blu-Ray Watch: Unification, Season 5, TV Best-Of

Star TrekAmazon has some new Star Trek releases you may be interested in skipping, or buying. Star Trek: The Next Generations Season 5 on Blu-Ray is obvious. It's joined by Unification on Blu-Ray, which breaks tradition from the feature-length combinations of season finales and premieres. (It would have been "Time's Arrow.") Lastly there's Star Trek: The Original Series Origins which features 5 significant episodes of the original show, minus "City on the Edge of Forever."

The two Next Generation titles are due in November, with no date given on the classic best-of.

Nintendo Announces Non-Folding 2DS

Nintendo DSNintendo 2DSIf you're like me, you bought the original Nintendo DS in November of 2004, said "this is pretty good," shelved it, and are now considering buying a 3DS for the new Zelda game. Well, don't! The new Nintendo 2DS is a baffling un-update of the hardware removing the folding joint we've had since the GameBoy Advance SP in favor of a decidedly more 1989 aesthetic - like the GameBoy Color and its ancestors. The new system is due October 12 and does include an AC adapter. A now-essential carry case is sold separately.

The price at $129 falls under "ain't bad" - it's a cheaper way to play that new Zelda game, and as much as I hate to admit it, I really am the customer Nintendo is aiming to reach here.
