New and cheap! The Hasbro Transformers Authentics Bravo Optimus Primal Action Figure is one of the few toys you pick up and ask "how come everything else is so expensive?" While not perfect, it is an astonishingly good robot figure toy for the price. As a gorilla, it could be better, but it's still neat. Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Micronauts Cartoon Was Made, You Won't See It

MicronautsTrip WorldVia Twitter: Great post from my former staff writer on Micronauts. The studio keeping a show on the shelf after we had almost no support staff after 3 years of some of my/our best work ever turned that time into a 52 episode gig job.. Apparently the show has been done since 2020, but as far as I know no toys were ever presented to be bought and the show itself is probably never going to see the light of day - along with the Batgirl movie and Star Wars Detours. People who worked on the show are none too pleased.

Tuesday Morning Closing Remaining Stores

ToysBetty Dreams of Green MenVia CNN (and Kerry): Tuesday Morning is going out of business and closing all of its stores .. The chain, which 30ish years ago would be closed for a period of time and then send out mailers to let you know they'd be open with new bargains on - you guessed it - Tuesday morning, closed a ton of stores earlier this year. Almost all the Phoenix-area locations were shuttered a few months ago, and I went out of my way to visit one of the few remaining locations two weeks ago. It was pretty nice - lots of cheap risers (for figures), a good amount of toys, the usual stuff.

I frequently found it a hand source of some weird stuff - especially Playmobil and Imaginext, but also occasional board games, puzzles, action figures, and other plastic closeouts.

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Zuckuss (The Retro Collection). They fixed the hand to better hold the blaster and changed the color a bit - that's good!

It blue! The Healey Made Trooper (Shadow) Action Figure is fantastic and fun. Because it's Glyos, you can mix and match with the other Healey figures - and he's a good match with the Raider or other Trooper. He sold out, but if you have the chance to buy one in this or another color you should. It's marvelous. Do read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Posted 10 years ago today! The Hasbro Transformers Generations 30th Anniversary Blitzwing is a figure some people loved with the triple-face gimmick, but mine didn't rotate very well and there have since been two other Voyager-class Blitzwing toys which I think are a lot better. But hey, who am I to stop you from buying something old? I actually saw a few of these sitting in collectible shops over the weekend. Read on, and come back tomorrow for an all-new review!

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Cassian Andor (Aldahani Mission, The Vintage Collection). He's starting to pop up in stores (and online), but he's also mostly older figure parts and as such, is missing the blaster he made a fuss about holding on Andor. As a last-minute, rush job of a figure it's not bad - but since we got fully-sculpted figures from the show already it just reminds me that we could have had something a little bit better.

Goodbye MTV News, Hello D&DTV?

TVTrip WorldVia Variety: Dungeons & Dragons Free 24-Hour Streaming Channel Set to Launch This Summer (EXCLUSIVE). Tech podcasts and outlets have been saying that free, ad-supported, linear streaming stations - or as olds call them, "TV Channels" - are the latest fad in media companies. Pluto TV and other things that let you just turn a station on and watch whatever is broadcast is now called "FAST," or "free, ad-supported TV streaming."

Hasbro previously had a cable channel called the HUB, but this new one is focused on Dungeons & Dragons. That means the old cartoon, new shows, and Internet people making some sort of show for this. Is it enough to keep people interested? I have no idea. But it's probably worth a shot, Pluto TV has a Transformers channel and getting this stuff out there for people to watch might even be fun.

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Generations 30th Anniversary Autobot SpringerA 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 Hasbro Transformers Generations 30th Anniversary Autobot Springer also was a model used in the comics around that time. It was a pretty big toy for the money, in an era where getting multiple Voyager-class "classic" toys in a year was something pretty unusual. Now? There's a bunch. But at the time, it was exciting to get a big, colorful toy with lots of accessories and rocket-firing blasters. Nothing for collectors seems to shoot anymore. How disappointing.

Figure of the DayHasbro The Adventures of Indiana Jones Indiana JonesSuper7Something 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!

This figure is not easily available - but even if it were, you may want to reconsider it. This series of figures really hinges on Hasbro The Adventures of Indiana Jones Indiana Jones being good - and he ain't great. The Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade Target and Shared exclusive versions are starting to hit, and... well, they're a little soft on details. The whip is too big to hold well and is kind of ridiculous. There are some odd color choices. The head sculpt doesn't look like the original toy at all. As much as I would like to say something like "it's really a shame this figure is tough to find," I think you might find - to paraphrase Mr. Spock - that 'having' is not so pleasing as 'wanting.' Much like the quality of most of the Indy (the character) figures in 2009, this one does not make me want to spend $150+ on additional figures right now. Do read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Analogue Duo Pre-Orders Star Tomorrow

TurboGrafx16DuoVia Analogue: Analogue Duo. Preorder May 19 8am PDT at $249. Available in limited quantities. Shipping 2023.

With wireless controller, HuCard, and CD compatibility right out of the box, this should be exciting for fans of this console - but it doesn't boast OpenFPGA, so it might be even more niche than the NT, Mega Sg, and the like. I've found their systems to be largely fantastic - if expensive - although not that expensive when adjusted for inflation in some cases. A few years ago Limited Run Games announced a reissue of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and I have little doubt that's the killer app for this, if and when it ever goes up for order. I have to assume it'll be soon now that this console is finally making it out.

New to Me: Surf Kraftwerk from The Routes

Music The Twang MachineVia The Routes: The Twang Machine is an album I had missed. It's pretty spectacular, if you like Japanese surf bands and Kraftwerk, which nicely intersects two of my favorite things. Iggy Pop played some of it on "Iggy Confidential" and it's really good. Check it out. This is, of course, not the only surf covers of Kraftwerk that came out of Japan. Surf Coasters fans already enjoy "Neon Lights" from the album Surfdelic, which is great.

Also of note, this Friday sees the release of AJJ's first full album since 2020's "Good Luck, Everybody." Disposable Everything comes out on digital and vinyl and whatever else there is, including some store exclusive variants. (I'm hoping to score the Zia Records Arizona Sunset version myself.)

ROM Reprints Return to Marvel

ComicsROMVia Marvel: Rom, the Greatest of the Spaceknights, Returns to Marvel Comics in All-New Omnibus Collections. Being a Hasbro (formerly Parker Bros.) property that was previously at IDW, reprints of the old stories were not likely - but here it is. You can get an omnibus edition in January with #1-#29 and an issue of Power Man and Iron Fist in there, or a reprint of issue #1 in September.

Does this mean anything for Transformers, Micronauts, G.I. Joe, or others? Probably not. But it's a nice start. For the kids out there, ROM was a bigger, fancier electronic robot toy from the 1970s that ran as a comic until 1986 - which was pretty good for there being no toy to sell.

Star Wars Review: Han Solo (Endor, The Retro Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Han Solo (Endor, The Retro Collection). The skin color of modern retro guys aren't as good as the originals, but the sculpt is excellent and so is the coat. Given the coat covers most of this somewhat hard-to-find 1984 figure, I'd say it's worth getting aboard the "good enough" train. Toot toot. Read the whole review.

New or Newish Healey Made Raider Saturday

GlyosRaiderVia the Glyos News Dump: Healey Made New Raider on Saturday 5/27. Specific details were not shared, but we were previously shown a Raider (Shadow) remake along with an Assassin, and as far as I know those are probably the next two figures. It would be my guess, anyway.

Classic Review: Mattel Hot Wheels Fig Rig from 2013

Figure of the DayMattel Hot Wheels Fig RigA 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 Mattel Hot Wheels Fig Rig is another classic, and you can still find repaints of it in stores. It was the first bricks-compatible Hot Wheels car, and this one works particularly well with LEGO figures. If you don't already have one, go to the store and buy one in whatever color you can find. It's a great toy. Read on, it's a good one - and come back tomorrow for an all-new review!

Glyos Shadow Raider V.2 & New Manglors and Mordles

GlyosRaiderVia the Glyos News Dump: Healey Made Menu: May 27, 2023. Several years ago, the first painted Healey Made Glyos figure was the Raider (Shadow) - this new one changes up a few paint hits, and adds a cloth cape to the mix. It's basically just different enough to make you mad, but I bought one anyway. Click here to see if it's still able to be ordered. At press time it's still available for $25 and is a nice fit with your original Kenner figures, even if it's not really a Star Wars guy.

You can also click here to read the review of the first version over at 16bit.com. I liked it.

But wait, there's more! You can also see the ToyFinity Drop Menu - May 28, 2023. New Manglors and Mordles can be yours while supplies last - so go check those out too.

Star Wars Review: Kithaba (2023 Reissue, The Vintage Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Kithaba (2023 Reissue, The Vintage Collection). Take three! The first one had a brown bandanna, then there was a red variation. This one from last month has some of that fancy tiny dot printing, giving it a slightly different look - especially if you squint and have a microscope. But you don't, so it's just a good new edition of an alien figure that you probably very much want. Read the whole review.
