More Transformers Titans Return at Cybertron Con

KickbackTransformersVia Tformers/Weibo/Cybertron Con: Cybertron Con 2016 - More Titans Return Display Photos - Hot Rod, Gnaw, Kickback, Voyager Optimus, More.

Some interesting notes - Bumblebee opens to seat a Titan Master, while it seems Gnaw can have one ride in his mouth.

Also notable: Cybertron Con 2016 - Titans Return Sixshot Detailed Display Photos which show a puttied face to mask what appears to be a possible remold as Quickswitch.

More Glyos - In Vending Machines?

Ninja!GlyosVia the Glyos News Dump: Glyos Hitting Stores - Bit Figs in Vending Machines. From the article:

"These are notable in that they are - as far as I can tell - the first Glyos/Onell Design figures to get national distribution at big stores. The vending machines keep the prices low, and it cracks open the door for more neat ideas. Just a few years ago we were talking about the democratization of designer figures through a lower-price OMFG line, and now Onell Design has discovered that you can give the things away. Collecting them all, on the other hand, may prove tricky."

You can call the distributors and order (or pick up) the figures now.

Vinyl Castlevania Soundtrack - SDCC Gone, Normal Here

Medusa!Video GamesVia Phil: Castlevania - Original Video Game Soundtrack 10" LP! It's a 10-inch record (or: the nerd format) with an original sleeve, 12 tracks from the NES/Famicom original, and the back boasts sequels will get pressed in the future. Yes, the good ones.

The current version is grey with black and white splatter - and of course I ordered one. It is $20. A red splatter version was sold at SDCC, but I missed that memo.

The Twin Towers Seinfeld Spec Script

Newman!TVVia the Shaun: Seinfeld - "The Twin Towers". This is a spec script that, well, maybe you've heard of it - it's incredible. September 11 and how the Seinfeld crew reacts to it, totally in character, pitch-perfect in almost every way.

It is written by one Billy Domineau, and I have no idea if that's a pseudonym or not. It is worth the read.

Convobat Coming to Japan, All Must Own One

KickbackTransformersVia Ehobby: Beast Wars Convobat coming to Transformers Legends.

It's glorious. Bat Optimus Primal from Beast Wars has been recreated with the newly-shipping Mindwipe's body, Sentinel Prime's head Infinitus, a tiny Apeface as Optimus Primal, and on top of that Galvatron's head Nucleon as the Gator Megatron head. Wow! No price has been announced, nor has a release date. But I want one. Full details are foggy, but it appears that this may be a new character in the continuity.

More NES Classic Edition Features

Save it!NintendoVia the TechCrunch: Nintendo's NES Classic Edition will add saving throughout gameplay. Some of that we knew, but there are visual filters - like you see on emulators - as well. From the article:

"The new console [...] will also offer a 'pixel perfect' display mode that shows each pixel from the original as a solid color square, instead of fuzzying things up via anti-aliased upscaling. It will also offer the option to play in classic 4:3 ratio, and has a simulation feature that mimics playing on classic bubble-fronted CRT TVs."

It's due November 11 and as of yet, there's not much of a US pre-order campaign. Keep your eyes open! And let's hope for some surprise features like Amiibo integration - I imagine a perfect world where a microconsole could download a new 8-bit game from a toy figure. I can dream, right?

Korea Getting Presumably KO Capsule Seacons

Seacons what I meanconsTransformersVia the Monzo and Twitter: Gazza found in toys r us in Korea. Entirely on King Poseidon..

The size is unclear, but one would assume these are miniaturized - the colors are crazy, giving us an example of wacky Seacons from Transformers as you probably wouldn't have even seen them during G2. Current exchange rates peg each capsule at about US $1, meaning I would totally love to buy a set at that price.

The console is due around September and boasts HDMI support and zero lag - and can be powered by USB. It looks and sounds interesting, so give this a thought if the mini NES proves hard to find. It sounds pretty fantastic, and the RetroUSB crew has a pretty nifty level of output.

New Games for the Xbox One

Xbox OneOvercookedXbox fans, it's time to try Anode. Microsoft says:

"Colored blocks fall, and they keep falling. You rotate them, and drop them. Faster and faster you align the pieces, creating links of matching color, filling in gaps. You touch a block with a detonator and the entire chain explodes. The blocks above them drop, another detonator touches, and another chain is gone. Then another. Invite a friend over, plug in some controllers, and dive into frantic competition. Complete long chains to send blocks to your opponent’s side, or use offensive items to trip them up. All to a pulsing soundtrack with music that gets more intense as your bin fills!"

The Nightly Show - Over, Finished Thursday

Larry!TVVia Variety: Larry Wilmore's 'Nightly Show' Cancelled at Comedy Central. From the article:

"'The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore' will call it a day after Thursday's episode. ... Comedy Central is developing a project with 'Daily Show' contributor Jordan Klepper that could be a potential successor to 'Nightly' in the post-'Daily Show' slot. But Alterman said it was unlikely that any new program would be set before the start of the year." But this was disturbing: "[The show] had failed to gain ratings traction with the cabler's core demo of young adults, nor were there positive signs for the show in key social media metrics."

As an old person, the strange emphasis placed on social media - which does not really have an impact on things like sales as far as I know - is curious. Who cares? Low ratings, sure. I'm a fan of the show. But social? That's just sort of terrifying to think that what's trending could be what decides the future of entertainment and its survival. The show has a pretty fantastic stable of funny people who you may as well watch before they go off to whatever comes next.

Hitting Now: World of Nintendo Mini Series 2-3

NintendoSighted at Toys R Us retail stores (and this is a link to buy it online from Entertainment Earth): Nintendo 2 1/2-Inch Mini-Figure Wave 9 Case. I picked up the Metroid, which was $6.99 (!) for one individual figure at the Toys R Us. A case of 16 figures online is $83.99, or $5.25 a figure. I've seen these guys as low as $3.99 lately, but $5 seems to be more of the norm. I can personally vouch for these showing up, alongside things like the "Clash of the Transformers" exclusive assortment.

Nintendo 2 1/2-Inch Mini-Figure Wave 9 Case

Due to the color change of the packaging, odds are any non-Mario (non-red) figure will go quickly because it stands out on the racks. In other words, best of luck finding the Metroid, as well as Orange Squid and Tom Nook! Although on the latter two, there are always Amiibo figures.

A New High-End NES Clone - For $449

Save it!NintendoIf you thought audiophiles were fun, now there's a video game equivalent. Read this: Introducing the new Analogue Nt mini. Now $449. It's one of a few higher-end NES clones, with a wireless controller, RBG and HDMI support, and supposedly works with dang near everything - Zappers included.

This is some amazing hardware and it's just a wee bit on the pricey side. But for those seeking the best of the old, this might be it. I don't assume there will be many in-depth comparisons between the NES players coming due to the investment involved, but dang if it doesn't look impressive. The original, larger Analogue Nt got pretty great reviews. If you're rich, you should buy this site one come January 2017 when it is released. What else are you going to do with the money, spend it responsibly?

Yet More Guerilla Toss Coming

Seacons what I meanconsMusicGood grief! If you're like me you're a fan of the band Guerilla Toss, but their prolific nature means there are new albums every few weeks. It's hard to keep up. I just found out that a new repress of the Jeffrey Johnson 12-inch LP has been released. And when I tweeted about it, the band tweeted back.

They said they were "putting the finishing touches on our next LP this weekend!" Yowza. Well, now's the time to buy this stuff, kids.
