The new Hasbro Transformers Generations Thrilling 30 Roadbuster is a bit of a mess - some of the joints are weird and there are a ton of nasty stickers.

Walmart Has Exclusive Toy Story That Time Forgot Toys

DisneyToy StoryI was at Walmart last night and was surprised to see a clearly under promoted Toy Story That Time Forgot action figure line [Amazon link] in a big, in-store dump. Trixie was far and few between, but everything else was packing the giant cardboard display quite nicely.

You can see a shot of what I picked up on Tumblr and they'll start appearing here in Figure of the Day next week. I should note I found them at a giant Walmart - not the little crappy neighborhood one by my house - and individual figures cost $8.96, 3-pack was $19.96, and I didn't check the Goliathon price. In hindsight I don't know why I skipped it given how much I like buying toys that can eat other toys, but there you go.

We Missed It - Sega Space Harrier Mammoth Sofubi Figure

SegaMenuIf you heard screaming last night around 10:14 PM, that was me because I found out about (and missed the pre-order window on) SEGA RETROGAME SOFUBI COLLECTION: Space Harrier Mammoth.

It's not cheap - about $90ish before shipping - but it is a mammoth, and a cyclops, and from a classic video game, and I can't have it. A pox upon your houses for not giving me this news when I could use it, cruel universe. On the bright side, some toy importers have it, there's always eBay, and of course we can also go on living without it, I guess, whatever.

Also newsworthy is a Sega Genesis Megatron - not Mega Drive - that's exclusive to an online store from the look of things, so here's hoping they either ship to the USA or speculators buy a bunch to flip at hopefully modest mark-ups.

TransformersMenuVia TFND (via The Allspark): Robots in Disguise Warriors Wave 1 short review.

If you're like me and only planning to buy 1 or 2 of these guys, you should skip this link. I was planning on getting Strongarm and after seeing these in action it looks like Grimlock, Bumblebee, and Steeljaw are actually all pretty good. They also look pretty meaty and sizable compared to the Deluxe toys of Prime, or at least bigger than Kup/Ironhide. Coincidentally, my place of employment put them up for pre-order last night and you can buy a set at the link below. Which, apparently, I will now be doing.

Many years in the making! The Hasbro Transformers Generations Thrilling 30 Arcee is one of those figures that we never thought we'd see, and here she is, and she's pretty OK.

Ad: Transformers Price Drop Again at Amazon

Slog in particular has been going down about 40 to 60 cents per day.

The new Mattel Toy Story That Time Forgot Battle Armor Trixie Action Figure is a decent toy figure.

Four Horsemen Ravens Arriving

Rise of the BeastsDuck RavenWhile mine aren't here yet, others are getting lucky. The Source Horsemen forums have a thread am i first? showing off Minotaur the Duck in his packaging after a successful delivery.

It is assumed these are near the point of distribution, as the shipping method used - if memory serves - takes 3-10 business days. And it will take all 10 business days if you're on the other end of the country. Over 700 orders have shipped so far, so it's possible you will get yours before Christmas. For those keeping track, you paid for these on Kickstarter back in August 2013 and the original target date was March 2014. The industry standard for an action figure being conceived until its release is about 18 months, and they took about 16 after starting the campaign. It's not terrible, although I do hope future Kickstarter projects take the delays into account just to manage expectations going into it.
