This figure is set for release on February 16, so be sure to make note if you want one. Odds are this is the only figure (other than maybe Skeletor) a lot of fans are going to buy this year.

Hasbro x Mattel Vore Fantasy

HasMatToysVia many: Hasbro, Mattel Said to Have Held Talks About Possible Merger.

This isn't the first time either - Mattel made a play for the Rhode Island toy giant in the 1990s. This time, Hasbro approached Mattel, who themselves just gobbled up Mega Brands (Mega Bloks) and Hit Entertainment (Thomas the Tank Engine) in recent years. Both Hasbro's and Mattel's stocks went up on this rumor, which as of my writing this remains a rumor.

Fake Beast Wars Neo Unicron Coming

UnicronTransformersVia TFW2005: Garatron 3rd Party Unicron Revealed! Normally I don't like to cover third-party stuff, but this one is certainly odd in that it's basically an unofficial release of an official design from the Internet age.

There have been numerous knock-offs and original designs based on Hasbro concepts, but this may be the first time one of these toy firms opted to make a toy based on an unproduced concept from the Beast era. This was sort of the stuff of legends, with much gnashing of teeth back in the late 1990s when it looked like we might never actually get a toy Unicron in our collections. Now that we've had several, this is more of a novelty than anything else - but if you've always wanted one, it looks pretty close to some of those original models. You might want one, especially as it forms a (more or less) sphere rather than a half-planet blob of some sort. The firing rockets are gone, and lights were added, but the similarities are striking.

Transformers Pre-Toy Fair Leaks

ParadronTransformersVia TFormers.com: Collectors Club Transformers Figure Subscription Service 5 Preview First Look. Not content to wait until the club license expires, the Paradron Medic and a double-pretender Optimus Prime (out of Oilmaster) are on deck. Wow! Dagnabbit, these look fun - but as you know, they're competing for your dollars with other, equally neat, and significantly cheaper sets from Hasbro.

For example: Combiner Wars Computron Partial Box Art Now In Color! You can see Afterburner, part of a redecorated Scattershot, and Lightspeed. The set is as of yet unconfirmed, but it stands to reason if G2 Superion, G2 Menasor, G2 Bruticus, and Victorion do well we could see more - granted, we're probably also approaching the logical conclusion of the group sets we can do without more new molds, but the sky is the limit if they want to squeeze out more redecorated figures like G2 flavors of Alpha Bravo or a US release of Groove.

As it stands right now, we have reason to expect at least 5 more US combiner teams (or sets) before the end of the year - possibly more, as nobody is talking G2 Defensor yet. If you aren't already saving some cash for what may be a solid $1,000 year just for US Hasbro Transformers toys - not including convention or subscription items - you might be in for a financial sucker punch by the time Fall comes around.

Dreamworks Teases More Voltron

Go LionTVVia Nerdist: Official VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER Logo Revealed (Exclusive). Well, there ya go.

You might remember a show called Voltron Force from 2011, but probably not - the show fizzled and Mattel's announcement of the toy license went nowhere. The show should be on Netflix, so you can hope the toy line was already sold but I sure as heck haven't seen anything for it yet in my travels.

Titans Return Brainstorm from Blurr Actually Happening?

Brainstorm IITransformersVia Weibo: Seemingly legit Brainstorm vehicle mode made from remold of previously seen Titans Return Blurr image which may mean a whole list of rumored toys is legit.

I was more than a little surprised to see this, but considering the clip at which Hasbro is rereleasing characters as new toys it's more and more plausible. Numerous other toys for this line have been officially announced and seemingly leaked, including: Alpha Trion, Blurr, Skullcruncher Skullsmasher, Hardhead, Mindwipe, Fortress Maximus, Soundwave, Blaster, Powermaster Optimus Prime, Astrotrain, Sentinel Prime, Scourge, and Galvatron. And it wouldn't stun me at all if we had another reveal before you even read this, or if there was a hoax in there, or some such.

Control two walker robots and puzzle your way through 30 levels to restore power, reactivate the life support and solve the mystery of the collision."

Toy Fair '16 - Peg People, Jurassic World, Transformers

BatmanToy FairVia my Tumblr: Peg Pals Batman from Bif Bang Pow! - this is a Toy Fair exclusive! If this looks somewhat familiar, it should - the little wooden figures are a new line including Marvel, DC, Star Trek, Kiss, and more - which will be announced as agreements and product development permit. The Batman was an at-show exclusive freebie which is apparently now most flippable on eBay.

I'm basically shooting a bunch of stuff and may post most of it, we'll see how time works out. Hasbro really knocked my socks off, Star Wars was a little thin in its public showing but it's a safe bet this will be a year that you will enjoy, eventually, probably. Other brands are expanding to fun and crazy places, so people who love toys and don't take their plastic too seriously are going to get a lot of yahoo for their yen this year.

Toy Fair 2016 - Hasbro - Transformers Generations Toy Fair 2016 - Hasbro - Transformers Generations

I'm exhausted, so I'm still editing galleries - Transformers Generations was one I had to share because Titans Return looks fabulous. Thanks to leaks galore it feels like this is more a show about what we didn't see, but we did see the first packaged samples. And Fortress Maximus. And a Valentine's Day side in the presentation focused on the already-announced Eject's Conjunx Endura, Chromedome. If that isn't an example of just how far we've come as a culture (not for the least of which is a male war robot toy being pitched on the concept of love) I don't know what is. This line really does feel like an artifact from the future, so check it out. I'm all-in, baby.

Also check out this art which may be confirmation of a rumor of an SDCC exclusive set which, if true, is dang compelling stuff. Do want, thank you.

Toy Fair 2016 - Hasbro - Jurassic World Hybrid Dinosaurs Toy Fair 2016 - Hasbro - Jurassic World Hybrid Dinosaurs

I was pretty pleased with Jurassic World last year, and Dino Hybrid gives us more of what we want. Assuming, of course, you're like me and want more Chaos Effect-style toys with mutant creatures and neon colors. Even more surprising is a 3 3/4-inch Chris Pratt figure and his motorbike. The Hybrid Indominus Rex feels like a whacko best-of-show just because it's jut so unlikely and the head looks a lot like a skull. If the final looks like cool, I'll take one. (I'll take one anyway.) You'll probably read reviews of the entire line as I can find them.

TakaraTomy Do Do Unique Titans Return Faces

New FacesGlyosVia the TFW2005 forums: TakaraTomy Transformers Legends Hardhead & Skullcruncher Prototypes show off different faces.

Both are a bit closer to the Japanese cartoon faces, with Skullcruncher's sneer and visor plus Hardhead's face (rather than faceplate). Pricing is unknown, but if you're living outside the USA or Japan you may have some tough choices to make as the prices are likely to be pretty similar for importers. Heck, I usually go all-in USA except for unique characters and this is pretty tempting.

New Games for the Xbox One

Xbox OneReagan GorbachevXbox fans, it's time to try Reagan Gorbachev. Microsoft says:

"The year is 1986. Cold War leaders Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev have been kidnapped by militant extremists. Once rivals, now they must cooperate… or die. Armed only with their fists and samurai swords and poison darts and pistols and shotguns and fully automatic assault rifles and grenade launchers and miniguns and bazookas some other guns - sneak, slash or shoot your way through an army of mercenaries. Save the world from nuclear apocalypse. Reagan Gorbachev is a top-down action stealth game for one or two players (local co-op.)"

Also available: Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2, The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries, Replay: VHS Is Not Dead, Agatha Christie - The ABC Murders, Evolve Ultimate Edition, Far Cry Primal, and The Flame In The Flood.
