The last new mold to review! This Hasbro Marvel Legends 375 Luke Cage, Power Man Action Figure is the end of the line for me - I'll review the metallic ones at some point later, but for now, he ends a pretty good line that didn't get too big or repetitive before ending. I hope you picked him and the others up. Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Classic Review: Mattel Batman Classic TV Series The Penguin

Figure of the DayMattel Batman Classic TV Series Batman & Robin Action Figure SetA 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 ten years ago today! The Kenner Batman Classic TV Series Batman & Robin Action Figure Set was a huge deal when these guys first came out, as they were the very first action figures based on the TV show which was in licensing limbo for decades. They're still pretty neat - and other companies also made some nice figures based on the show. Read on, it's a good one - and come back tomorrow for an all-new review!

(I may be footnote somewhere.) Hopefully he'll still be doing something fun in the future there.

The Complete Cowboy Bebop (on vinyl)

AnimeWe are the doggy doggy dogVia Light in the Attic Records (via JVC): Yoko Kanno Cowboy Bebop 11xLP-Box. That's a lot of music - it's due for the 25th anniversary later this year, and it's $310.

That sounds like a lot. That is a lot. It's $28 per platter (most single LPs are $20-$25 these days) with no specific mention of a heavy-duty box, hardcover book of liner notes, or anything special. But this is the kind of thing that's going to be a no-brainer for a specific kind of fan, so you might want to order one... or two, if it turns out to be pre-order only. And I don't know if it is.

Triple Jump for the NES - New Kickstarter

NESWe are the doggy doggy dogVia Morphcat on Kickstarter: Triple Jump: A platformer multi-cartridge for the NES. I pledged immediately - because you get Micro Mages Second Quest, Bobl, and the Space Gulls game all on a cartridge. I have the ROMs for the last two, but I had enough fun that these guys deserve some money.

Morphcat's stuff tends to be of the absolute highest quality as homebrew/posthumous NES games go, so I'd recommend it. Even though it doesn't come out for a full year. A fourth bonus mini game is also in the works... but buy it for the three named games and let's hope they make more of them.

Atari Buys AtariAge

AtariHunter GirlsVia AtariAge: AtariAge + Atari. Hot on the heels of the announcement of an official HDMI emulation console ATARI 2600+, the company whose name was once synonymous with "video game" now seems to own the forums (and third-party game publisher) that put out the likes of Space Rocks and countless others over the past couple of decades.

They hired the admin as an employee too, and hopefully this means more and better output as well as better distribution of these games. I'd love to live in a world where Atari had a wholesale program distributing its hardware and software to retailers big and small across the planet - and that Sega and Nintendo might do the same with their classic hardware. I'd love to know if this was spurned on by a plan to expand the footprint of Atari games to Generation Xers (not unlike Rhino Records in the 1980s-90s with Boomers) or if this was just a way to reclaim a trademark.

They also posted a AtariAge + Atari Q&A forum. It's rather extensive.

Still showing up at American 99 Cents Only stores (for $1.99!) This Hasbro Marvel Thor Action Figure ha sno cape, and no hammer. And it's skinny and goofy - but that's the appeal. It's of a quality that's not unlike a bootleg, but it feels and plays a lot like 1980s action figures. If you're older and have $2, this might be a worthwhile purchase. Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Star Trek: The Animated Series Turns 50

Star TrekVia YouTube/Paramount/etc.: Star Trek: very Short Treks | Skin a Cat | StarTrek.com. It's a goofy not-in-continuity short that brings you comedian/podcaster/TJ Miller impressionist Pete Holmes as an unnamed Captain along with Ethan Peck as Spock, Eric Bauza and Christina Millzia as multiple characters, and Bonnie Gordon as the computer.

It looks a lot like the original show and is the kind of thing it would be nice to see more of. Warner Bros. did this sort of thing with Space Ghost: Coast to Coast in the 1990s (and later, more on Adult Swim) making it a proven way to put stuff in front of aging fans with no spare time to watch a full thing. Someone might buy a Screwhead figure now. I would, anyway.

New episodes are expected every week. Also Lower Decks kicked off season four with two episodes last week.

In stores now? The Hasbro Transformers Legacy Evolution Leader G2 Universe Toxitron Figure is a Walmart exclusive that I admittedly haven't seen there more than once. It's really cool - they took the Universe concept, slapped on a G2 logo, and put it out as the centerpiece of an exclusive capsule in 2023. I love it - but I'm a little surprised I don't see it in the wild after a couple of months. Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

The site Time Extension says that Wallride Games is working on it, and that they worked on Jay & Silent Bob: Mall Brawl, which I have and enjoyed quite a bit.

Walmart Got Scooby-Doo Keshi/MUSCLE/etc.

ToysScooby Doo Tiny MightsVia Walmart: Scooby Doo Tiny Mights. They come in 3-packs, are sized like old M.U.S.C.L.E. figures, and are about $3.47 - you can order them at the link. But I'm reading that they're keeping them on the checklanes.

For those who like to work, there are indeed "flesh" and "glow in the dark" sets to complete. So good luck there - these guys are in tiny clear plastic Mystery Machine packaging that doubles as a storage box.

It's a good month for Keshi fans - Wendy's currently has DC Universe minis as a freebie 3-pack in kid meals. The funny thing is I was hoping Wendy's had Scooby-Doo Keshi in the pipeline, and I guess this totally negates the need for that. Good hunting, small figure fans. I went all over town to look for these, and finally found some by a cash register at the one near my house.

At a 99 Cents Only Store near you? This Hasbro Marvel Captain America Action Figure comes in a bag, is 3 3/4-inches tall, and sells for about two bucks. It's great - but there's no shield.

Classic Review: Playmates Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Quark Action Figure

Figure of the DayMattel Batman Classic TV Series Batman & Robin Action Figure SetA 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 ten years ago today! The Playmates Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Quark Action Figure came out nearly 39 years ago, and was a good deal at the time. Five or six bucks was the norm for a Kenner figure, so to get something with bending knees and elbow splus a whole suite of accessories and a display base was an incredible deal. He's still pretty cheap on eBay or at comic shops too. Read on, it's a good one - and come back tomorrow for an all-new review!

WGA Strike Over?

TVVia NPR/CNN/Deadline/etc.: Hollywood writers reach a tentative deal with studios after nearly five month strike. There's no return-to-work date, but it sounds like there could be late night comedy shows again in a few weeks.

There are no updates on the SAG-AFTRA strike, so it's also possible these shows may not be back, or may be back in a reduced capacity as to what kind of bits you might see (and what kind of guests you may see.)

Once the hard-working people behind everything that is responsible for what we watch that makes us what we want toys of it are back to getting paid again, the big question will be "soooo when do these movies and shows come out, and what of the toys?" A number of movies were punted from the 2024 release schedule, although a number of movies seemed to have little to no chance of being released "on time" in the first place like Ghostbusters: Afterlife 2 which was allegedly scheduled for December of 2023. Which is, honestly, seemingly unlikely given how little toy chatter there was. Heck, is that even the title?

It is also unknown which Star Wars movies are/were coming and when - this could be another opportunity to sweep a project under the rug, again, although the rug is starting to look a little crowded.

With New York Toy Fair 2023 finally kicking off this weekend, I expect we'll hear rumblings of updates and new release dates. (Many of which will, sadly, not yet be made public. There are some now they still haven't shared with the public.)

Review: Hasbro Transformers Legacy Evolution Voyager Nacelle Figure

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Legacy Evolution Voyager Nacelle FigureSomething 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!

At Amazon now - did your Hasbro Pulse order get canceled? The Hasbro Transformers Legacy Evolution Voyager Nacelle Figure is a redeco of a pretty great mold from a few years ago... but without the distinctive design of his previous toy. (Specifically, Thrust's wings on a toy that's more or less Thundercracker with a blue face.) Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!
