New GameBoy Color Backlit Screen Option?

GameBoyScreenVia BennVenn's Facebook: The new drop in back-lit GBC solution! What do you think?

This is a pretty big deal. It's a new backlit color screen with a good refresh rate with no blur and supposedly plops in with minimal shell modifications and zero soldering. There may be some need for a custom bezel, but it's looking impressive and I want one. It's a lot better than the Worm Light I was using 20 years ago. A review is threatened soon - and it's set for mass production, and if it truly is a drop-in option where all you need is a cheap tri-wing screwdriver it's - if you'll forgive the pun - a real game-changer.

Star Convoy looks like Power of the Primes Optimus Prime with a new big robot head and a new "trailer" mode - the inner robot in the chest looks similar to the original release. Armada Optimus Prime is a new mold, and Snakas took some pictures that seem to confirm a possible super mode. The battle pants have yet to be unveiled, and there's no word on if a US release of either toy is coming.

Toy Fair 2019: Hasbro and the Outer Space Men

Toy FairThe coverage begins! Check out some of what we've seen so far

Toy Fair 2019 - The Outer Space Men Toy Fair 2019 - The Outer Space Men

We've got The Outer Space Men! We went on a road trip to see these new samples - and they're really nice. A pink clear glitter Orbitron stole the show, but there was no show to speak of - I just got to talk with the creators/owners and get a look at what they have planned. At this time there are no known plans for more Glyos-compatible figures from this crew, but a 12-inch follow-up to Orbitron is in the works.

Toy Fair 2019 - Hasbro - Trolls Toy Fair 2019 - Hasbro - Trolls

60th Anniversary Good Luck Trolls! These are colorful and have the naked butts you crave. If you liked Guy Diamond, these are where the idea of nudist hairy creatures first appealed to kids and moms the world over. The movie line will also continue, but let's get down to brass tacks - these are exciting.

Toy Fair 2019 - Hasbro - Marvel Legends Toy Fair 2019 - Hasbro - Marvel Legends

Marvel Legends are looking well with Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster and tons of other new figures that aren't Jeff Goldblum. You should check them out.

Toy Fair 2019 - Hasbro - Spider-Man Toy Fair 2019 - Hasbro - Spider-Man

Hasbro also showed a limited number of Spider-Man: Far From Home toys and figures. Masks, shooters, jets, you know. Typical Peter Parker things.

Hyperkin's UltraBoy GameBoy Clone Still Happening

GameboyGameboyVia Instagram: Hyperkin confirms Ultra GameBoy still in development! I asked! The quotes:

adam16bit: Are you guys showing that Ultra GameBoy? Is that still happening?
hyperkin: @adam16bit Yes! It is still in development. Stay tuned for more announcements about our upcoming products.

I'll take it. An early prototype looked like a barely-changed GameBoy Pocket at CES 2018, with a revised prototype (pictured, pilfered from Neowin) and E3 2018. And since then, we've seen and heard nothing official... but this is pretty official.

As of right now, there aren't many mass-produced GameBoy clones on the market. The cheapest and most ubiquitous in Asia is Kongfeng's GB Boy Colour - a pretty good gadget for under $40. I've heard good things about the REVO K101 Plus, which only plays GameBoy Advance cartridges.

ICYMI: Pylon Reenactment Society

MusicNot PylonVia a few places: Pylon Reenactment Society. I like a lot of music and am on a lot of mailing lists, but missed the announcement of a few members of Pylon forming a band that's not Pylon (but has Vanessa so it's basically Pylon enough for you to check out.)

I stumbled on their Messenger/Cliff Notes 7" record on a recent business trip, and then realized I missed Chunklet's Part Time Punks Session record. So if you liked Chomp, Chain, or Gyrate, go ahead and get one of the bands that made the Athens music scene a thing back in the late 1970s and early 1980s. You'll be glad you did.

New Mini Epsilon - Pilot Edition

ToysBlasters Master FasterVia Mechazone: Mini Epsilon - PILOT Edition. I bought the above big one last year... but I'm jealous that there's a mini pilot figure with this micro version. Hopefully the Mechazone crew can be entreated to sell this pilot by its lonesome? Either way, you can get a mini Epsilon with the pilot for a mere $22. It's probably more than worth it - I paid a sum for the big version and did not regret it.
