Review: Playmobil 70732 "Fi?ures" Figures Playmobil Paintball Man

Figure of the DayPlaymobil 70732 Something new every day-- unless it's old! Our exciting Figure of the Day continues for you lucky people! Is there anything we won't cover in this column? Probably not!

Splat! The Playmobil 70732 "Fi?ures" Figures Playmobil Paintball Man is a nifty figure that's been hanging out on my desk for months, and I think it's pretty great. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Hasbro HasLab Deathsaurus Painted Sample Photos Added

HasbroDeathaurusVia HasLab: Transformers Generations HasLab Deathsaurus added a ton of photos of a physical painted sample. And it looks really good!

Hasbro confirmed vac-metal parts in its livestream a couple of days ago, instead of the less pretty scuffed-up gold paint being reported on Victory Saber. While funded, it hasn't yet hit a stretch goal and funding ends in about 11 days. Is it worth the asking price? It's more than a little on the expensive side - but it's cheaper than an original, or the third-party unlicensed not-quite-Deathsaurus toys on the market. So to answer your question I have no idea, but I did order one.

Star Wars Review: Dengar (and IG-88, The Retro Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Dengar (and IG-88, The Retro Collection). His details are not as sharp as the original at all, but he can hold his blaster straight this time. That's arguably a big improvement in this Amazon exclusive figure set. The skin tone is somewhere in between the peachy and yellowy old faces you may have seen, with what feels like rock-solid construction and freely moving joints. Other than the fuzzy sculpted detail, Hasbro did a real good job here and the Kenner-style paint job turned out really well. And yes we have comparison photos with the originals. Read the whole review.

He's tall! This Hasbro Marvel Legends 375 Thor Action Figure is one of few figures in this line to have not one, but two accessories! There's a hammer and a cape - and that's a lot more than the usual "nothing" you get. Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Playmobil Got Disney

PlaymobilNot DisneyVia aNb Media: PLAYMOBIL & Disney Form New partnership & First License for the PLAYMOBIL Toddler Portfolio. The key sentence: "Six playsets inspired by Disney's Mickey and Minnie Mouse as well as Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Piglet will be launched summer 2023 for fans of all ages."

I assume Marvel and Star Wars are unlikely as these are technically 3-inch scale action figures, but I can dream. And I will be insufferable if they ever do a Playmobil X-Wing which, I can only believe, could be the greatest toy of all time.

Emmet Otter Finally Gets Action Figure Pre-orders

MuppetsNot MuppetsVia Plastic Meatball: Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas 45th Anniversary Figure Set. The set of two figures which nobody under 40 remembers will set you back about $60.00 with a ship date of late 2023.

Based on a relatively obscure holiday special that was really hard to find in the VHS era if you didn't tape it off the TV in 1977-1980, you may have seen this pop up on a streaming service or cable with some edits made to it. I assume these will scale nicely with either your Palisades and/or Diamond Select The Muppet Show action figures, and it's great to see Plastic Meatball putting out some old IP as toys just before the sun sets on anyone being young enough to remember what these things actually are.

Cheap DC Justice League Walmart Exclusive Figure Set

DCNot DisneyVia Walmart: DC Comics, Justice League 4-Inch Action Figures 6-Pack. I saw a display of these last Friday at Walmart for $14.88, and I didn't have any of these guys so I took it to the register - and it rang up at $5.00 in store. For six 4-inch action figures, that's a steal. I'd recommend checking it out for yourself, or a gift, or for the toy charity of your choice.

There are no accessories beyond the attached capes, but what do you want for five bucks? The box looks incredibly bland and it's missing the "secret accessories," but the very same Batman is $6.88 on an individual card a few shelves over. Someone you know is going to want this, and many Walmarts have piles of them in their "gift" areas which may not be near the action figure aisle.

Hasbro HasLab Deathsaurus Updates

HasbroDeathaurusVia HasLab: Transformers Generations HasLab Deathsaurus continues along at 13,528. It's up from 10,752 a week ago, but is still short of the 14,000 needed to hit that first stretch goal.

With eight days left, at its current momentum, it should hit the throne goal of 17,000 - if it can do nearly 3,000 last week, it can probably do it again. By comparison, Victory Saber ended with 26,211 sold units.

Classic Review: Jakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Hungry Humbug, Nutty Nate, Captain Payback Minifigures 3-Pack from 2012

Figure of the DayJakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Hungry Humbug, Nutty Nate, Captain Payback Minifigures 3-PackA classic! I've written over 5,000 action figure reviews since 2006, so I'm going to toot my own horn with classic Figure of the Day.

Posted 10 years ago today! The Jakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Hungry Humbug, Nutty Nate, Captain Payback Minifigures 3-Pack was sold during what felt like a brief, wonderful surge of cheaper unpainted collectible mini-figures. The trend ended pretty quickly and even the indie guys seem to be backing off now, but at least we got some of these guys. Jakks Pacific also showed off logos for Aliens and Monsters lines under its S.L.U.G. brand at New York Toy Fair 2012, but as far as I know no concept art or models every got shown. Read on, it's a good one - and come back tomorrow for an all-new review!

Review: Hasbro Transformers Legacy A Hero Is Born 2-Pack Alpha Trion and Orion Pax

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Legacy A Hero Is Born 2-Pack Alpha Trion and Orion PaxSomething new every day-- unless it's old! Our exciting Figure of the Day continues for you lucky people! Is there anything we won't cover in this column? Probably not!

Already on sale? The Hasbro Transformers Legacy A Hero Is Born 2-Pack Alpha Trion and Orion Pax was 20-25% off around Black Friday, which is a pretty good deal for what you get in the box - but I paid full price, so I feel it was a bit too expensive. You get Vector Sigma, the Key to Vector Sigma, and two pretty decent remolds based on the original cartoon - all of which are probably good enough to not want to upgrade ever again. Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Star Wars Review: IG-88 (and Dengar, The Retro Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: IG-88 (and Dengar, The Retro Collection). The droid shares parts with Hasbro's Kenner's IG-11, which means it's a much less sharp release than the original from the 1980s. However, the orange paint is much more generous - so at a distance, this is the one that looks better. If you get close, you'll see a lot of the sculpted lines aren't quite as impressive as an actual old IG-88 though. Read the whole review.

They also were part of the final line-up of Luxo Champ, and backed up "Jet Jaguar" on that group's final CD EP, "A+B," which you will know well if you spent a lot of time in a car with me in the early 00s. I have no idea if there's a tour coming or if this is a one-off, but either way, exciting stuff.

Game Boy Color New Game: Last Crown Warriors on Kickstarter

Game BoyLast Crown WarriorsVia Kickstarter: Last Crown Warriors for GB/GBC. There's a free downloadable demo, which shows the game has excellent graphics, awesome music, and very good play control. It looks a lot like Link's Awakening, but boils down to walking to a zone, killing a bunch of monsters, attacking a boss, and running to the next flag and doing it again. After the bases are satisfactorily conquered, you get to fight a boss monster.

At press time it's 50 Euros for the cheapest cartridge (about US $52.63) which isn't bad for a Game Boy Color game when adjusted for inflation. A $30 Game Boy game in 1999 would be about $53.66 in today's dollars, give or take a few cents.

As of my writing this it's 97% funded and cartridges are due in February 2024. (As a rule I recommend adding 3 months to any Kickstarter as a minimum.)

There's also a Boba Fett in the box, but you'll take note of Vlix on the back and in the front flap. Also this is the 2013 Boba Fett figure painted to look like his animated armor, which is excellent, but Hasbro has proven they know Vlix exists so now they can make a figure... right?

It looks like a mix of 3 3/4-inch Dukes of Hazzard and Buck Rogers action figures by Mego, but I admit, I do not have expertise in the Mego sphere.

If you were a weird kid with a weird dad in the 1980s, you may have seen this show and really love it. And the books, and the radio shows, and so on. However, there weren't any mass-produced toys. I am finding some 3-D printed figures out there, plus some decent custom figures. Having said that, I would love to see the Super7/Zica/Plastic Meatball/etc. firms try their hand at these, some day, if they were so inclined. Or if anyone from Dapol isn't busy, that would be an appropriate form factor.

Classic Review: Jakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Hungry Humbug, Nutty Nate, Captain Payback Minifigures 3-Pack from 2012

Figure of the DayJakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Hungry Humbug, Nutty Nate, Captain Payback Minifigures 3-PackA classic! I've written over 5,000 action figure reviews since 2006, so I'm going to toot my own horn with classic Figure of the Day.

Posted 10 years ago today! The Jakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Hungry Humbug, Nutty Nate, Captain Payback Minifigures 3-Pack was sold during what felt like a brief, wonderful surge of cheaper unpainted collectible mini-figures. The trend ended pretty quickly and even the indie guys seem to be backing off now, but at least we got some of these guys. Jakks Pacific also showed off logos for Aliens and Monsters lines under its S.L.U.G. brand at New York Toy Fair 2012, but as far as I know no concept art or models every got shown. Read on, it's a good one - and come back tomorrow for an all-new review!

Review: Hasbro Transformers Legacy Leader Laser Optimus Prime Action Figure

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Legacy Leader Laser Optimus Prime Action Figure Something new every day-- unless it's old! Our exciting Figure of the Day continues for you lucky people! Is there anything we won't cover in this column? Probably not!

Already gone? The Hasbro Transformers Legacy Leader Laser Optimus Prime Action Figure is not the fancy amazing toy from Generation 2, but it's a super-articulated more-complicated take on that classic. There's a removable Matrix, a blaster hidden in the the trailer, a sword, and some sort of Energon pizza cutter. It's pretty fun - he has been hanging out on my desk for months. Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

New The Outer Space Men Drop: Galactic Holiday 2022

The Outer Space MenVoidrillion Command Luna EclipseVia the Glyos News Dump: Shock - The Outer Space Men Galactic Holiday 2022 Wave. It has been ten years since we got a series of newly-manufactured, not-customized Galactic Holiday figures and we've had very, very few new figures at all from this line in quite some time.

The new series of four is $100 - a lot more than the $40 the first wave was back in 2010 - but they're fully-pained figures including beefier fellows like Colossus Rex, Cthulhu Nautilus, and less beefy people from space like Luna Eclipse and Orbitron. While $100 does seem high... have you seen what Hasbro has been asking for their recent Star Wars 3 3/4-inch repaints lately?

The series are called "Voidrillion Command" and I would love to find out who named these things. Heck, I can ask, so let me send that email. If you've been a reader here for long you know that I've been a big fan of these 3 3/4-inch scale space guys since their 2010 Glyos debut (and also since I read about them in Tomart's) so I am overly excited to have these on the way.

New Toy Pizza with Nice Bug Lady

Toy Pizza Knights of the Slice - A Riftmas Miracle Via the Glyos News Dump: Knights of the Slice - A Riftmas Miracle. Several new 3 3/4-inch Glyos-compatible figures and accessories are up, one of the most compelling of which is a bug lady who, sadly, does not include arms and legs. But it's a great design if you can merge it with one of the cheaper blank figures sold separately. A few older items are also in stock - and they look pretty sharp.

A new plussed-up Pheyaos called Kaisyriax is Wave 95's new face, and it comes in two colorways. It's worth noting this is only the fourth wave of 2022, and Onell Design chief Matt Doughty wrote this of 2023: "The wave is a decent size, and most likely marks the temporary end of the bigger assortments, due to the continued production delays in China and tightening economy. The next few waves are smaller in comparison and will hopefully cycle a little faster in their appearances here."

New Banimon Apocalypse Figure, Tank

GlyosBanigothVia the Glyos News Dump: New Banimon, Too - Tanks and Troops.

At $9 the Banigoth figures are cute and fairly cheap. This tank doesn't seem to have all the bells and whistles of the Banimon Red Army T-011 Bunkerbuster Tank Vehicle but it also has a figure in it - so you get a lot of toy in there.

It took me 10 years to get to it! The Jakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Frozen Fright, Johnny Hammer-stix, Buck Wilde Minifigures 3-Pack came out in 2012, so better late than never. You get a snowman and a toy drummer as zombies, plus a sheriff in a duster who is not a zombie. And it was $4! Oh, the good old days - I saw these at Target for about a month, and then never again. So read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

The Fall: The 1970s 12 CD Box Set Exists

MusicThe FallVia the radio and Cherry Red Records: The Fall: The 1970s, 12CD Box Set has a whole mess of live shows and what may be the oldest known (or first) recorded live show of Mark E. Smith's ongoing band. Albums include Live at the Witch Trials, Dragnet, bunches of singles, and outtakes, and an additional eight discs of various live shows from 1977-1979. You're not going to like everything they put out... but some of it is really something.

It is also for sale on Amazon and at press time is about $87 before shipping. But you might want to special order it from your local record or music shop, because that would be a nice thing to do if you are inclined to hear six different versions of "Rebellios Jukebox" or eight recordings of "Stepping Out." And really, why wouldn't you be?

Playmobil 2023 Catalog with Naruto Pages

No US pre-orders yet, but stay tuned, they're nearby. Real nearby. This is a pretty radical departure from most Playmobil series, which usually span numerous price points and rarely have ever offered quite so many characters at launch. If we see other series with Akito or Shinji down the road, call me.

Also check out the Citroen 2CV, complete with pig and goose.

Super Mario World US Prototype Found, Dumped

Super NESSuper Mario World (USA) (Prototype)Via the Forest of Illusion: Super Mario World (USA) (Prototype). Dated 1990, this is an early localization/translation/debug dump of the game that so many aging gamers got in 1991 - or later.

You can pop it in your emulator, ROM cart, or FPGA gizmo, and it seems to work pretty well. You can walk anywhere on the map, there are some font and graphical changes, and some glitches. If you were looking to replay the game anyway, this may be a good way to do it.

It's currently $22.95, which isn't too shabby for what you get in the box - the giant red Queen alone sold for about that. If they still had the smaller $10 sets in circulation I'd be pushing you toward those hard right now.

Clearance? The Spin Master DC Comics Justice League 4-Inch Action Figures 6-Pack is a lot of toy for the money. Sometimes it scans at $5, and sometimes it scans at $14.88, and that's at the same Walmart on the same day. You get Superman, Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg in one big set for pretty cheap - but you don't get their backpacks and blast effects. You just get six highly competent figures for less than the price of a single Hasbro 3 3/4-inch "collector" figure - which says a lot. Everybody can do a little better... er, worse... well, the point is you get a bunch of decent cheap figures. I'd love to see more products like this. Do read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!
