Freezepop USB Stick - With All Music

MusicUSBThis came out in November, but apparently I missed it. A Freezepop 15th Anniversary USB Drive: Ultra*Spectacular Bonanza - $35 is worth a look if you're a fan of this band, because it contains legit MP3 copies of pretty much every song they've released - and some they haven't - on a stick.

159 songs, but as someone who bought all the CDs (yes CDs) I went ahead and ordered one anyway. It looks like at least a couple dozen tracks that were never on CD, or were exclusive to compilations, are available here or on their free Covers EP. I am looking forward to its arrival, and I hope other indie bands take note and put out similar things - I'd rather give a band I love $35 for a USB stick with some exclusive stuff than contemplate a dump somewhere to find rare tracks or international bonus songs when such things are not available for sale.

Kmart Gets Platinum Insecticons Reissues

TransformersToo MuchVia TFW2005: Platinum Edition Generation 1 Reissue Insecticons Out in the US.

The most amazing thing here is that it's a Kmart exclusive set, and it's $79.99. The last time these were out they were much cheaper, and recent eBay sales of the last round of reissues are around $50. If you're in the market for these guys and are angry you can't get them at a Kmart, because it closed, the secondary market may actually be the much cheaper option for you here. Also keep in mind these are the same size as Generations Legends toys, of which Skrapnel and Bombshell are potentially at a Target near you still. I saw both on Sunday for $9.99 each.

New Venture Bros. Special Next Week

Venture Bros.One of my favorite TV shows - which basically fell out of favor due to new seasons becoming less frequent than other even spottier things - is back for one week next week! An hour-long special airs Monday, January 19 2015. It looks a lot like this.

This "Space Special" is the first new thing to air since season 5 wrapped in July of 2013, and no release date has been confirmed for season 6. This means we're going to get to a point where we'll probably have as many or more Star Wars movies per year than Venture Bros epsiodes, but hey, that's one more than we got last year.

Transformers Fan-Built Bot Combiner Vote Begins Soon

TransformersTransformersVia Hasbro: Hasbro Invites Transformers Fans to Create Massive Transformers Character to Enlist in the Combiner Wars! Actually that's a link to an app which is required to vote in said poll - voting will be open for multiple rounds with one week each. The first fan-built bot was Windblade, and the impact in the fandom seems to be pretty significant. As marketing goes, this seems like a smart idea.

Generally Hasbro offered up options from which you could pick things like color, faction, gender, and more - so odds are we won't be able to get into the nitty gritty for each character. The release is set for 2016, which hopefully means more classic combiners will make appearances between now and whenever the line ends. Although, to be honest, I'm hard-pressed to name what I'd like to see as alt modes that we don't more or less already have in some form or another. Sharkticons? That'd be fun.

Transformers Fan Vote Open, Legends Rodimus Revealed

TransformersToo MuchThe Transformers Official App has been updated with the first round of fan voting - you can pick alt modes.

The good news is you get a first peek at Hot Spot and Groove's alt modes. The bad news is it's because that's what you're voting for - 3 different existing bodies. Will the limbs be new? Or all repaints? We have no idea yet, but start voting.

Also noteworthy, Legends Rodimus and Legends Skywarp were revealed on Hasbro's German site. While both "rumored," this is the first we've seen of the pair. Which probably means we'll see a few more reveals prior to Toy Fair.

Transformers Devastator in Germany?

TransformersTransformersVia German Toy Fair: Combiner Wars Devastator Photo. For various reasons I'm going with "alleged," because you've probably seen more footage of Bigfoot than this toy.

There's a bigger picture, but that's all you're going to see - some green, some purple, and a dude in front of it. This item has not yet been confirmed by anybody, but this image is making the rounds and odds are the rest of the image will show up pretty soon.
