In Case You Missed It: G.I. Jeff Community Episode, Toys

G.I. JoeTight ShipLast week's episode of Community featured Custom G.I. Joe Mutineers Action Figures based off a mix of current and original G.I. Joe and, surprisingly, Star Wars action figure parts. Obviously there are no known plans for a release of any of these, but the way I see it Hasbro and the G.I. Joe club could put something together for convention season next year. I'd shell out a hundred bones for a boxed set of these guys and a "submachopter."

To watch the full episode, click here. From a purely mechanical perspective, it's great - they got a lot of the voice actors, nailed the animation style, and inserted some toy commercials. If NBC doesn't renew Community, maybe Adult Swim can look into renewing this.

This is just one of several new items including Parachute Drop Crazy Legs, Zombie Fighter VAMP MK II, Cobra Septic Tank MK II, Kre-O figures, Clutch and Ice Storm, and finally Carded Joe Colton and Cross Country figures.

The fascinating but sad thing here is that the convention seems to have captured the pop culture zeitgeist, with American heroes fighting zombies being what a kid-driven line in stores really could and should be right now. Too bad it's limited to hundreds of old guys paying huge premiums rather than being the thing kids are itching to ignore buy at retail.

Transformers "Upsized Cyberverse" Optimus Prime, Predaking at Ross

TransformersThe UpsizedThe very awesome Simplified Upsized Voyager Optimus Prime and Predaking figures are at Ross stores in the USA for $10.99 - as well as other Kre-O, Wolverine, and some nifty G.I. Joe Hasbro releases. As I have seen these toys at Target before, I would not consider them quasi-exclusive to Ross - they made it online, too, but most online stores are now sold out of them.

I picked up the set last week and they are tons of fun - it's looking unlikely that the matching Deluxe "Cyberverse" toys will come out here, so seeing these $20 toys at $11 is a small consolation prize. Having futzed with both as I work on the reviews, I can say that Optimus is the early frontrunner due to the excellent range of articulation, sturdy plastic, imposing size, and the fact he fits together nicely. The added bonus? He has a retooled sword, a giant shield, and big green rocket launcher that looks right at home on your "classics" G2 updates of some of the early cars - it's worth the price of admission for the accessories alone.

Transformers G1 Slag Coming... to Japan, Suckers

TransformersSlag!Here's some good news/bad news - Transformers Expo in Japan has an exclusive Age of Extinction Slug in G1 Slag colors! The purple US version is $15 - if I read this right, at the show, it'll be $60 for Slag.

It's not unprecedented for the US to get exclusives similar (or identical) to those in Japan, and we haven't heard many retail or SDCC exclusives for 2014 just yet. So I'm delusionally hopeful that someone will bring a similar toy to market outside Japan for a non-exclusive price, but maybe they'll make too many... or the price will drop... or we'll just get proper Generations Dinobots? For now, just be sad, or get rich and buy this one.

Speaking of Slag, he appears in Windblade #1 which is in stores now and pretty great if you like the other recent IDW titles. You get to see a bunch of guys dump on Starscream at a bar - what more could you want?

Transformers Swerve, Cosmos Begin Invasion of USA

TransformersGinraiTFW2005 reports Generations Swerve and Cosmos Found at US Retail, which is very exciting. We haven't had new "minibots" in a while, and the last new wave of these guys hit almost a year ago.
