Star Wars Q&A at Galactic Hunter

Classic Review: Hasbro Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Optimus Prime

Figure of the DayHasbro Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Optimus PrimeA 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 Hasbro Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Optimus Prime came out in 2014, and it was amazing at the time - and arguably easier to find at closeout stores. Even at full price, this was a giant Voyager-class toy that towered over the others that came before. The trade-off was that it was a bit simpler, but you got a shield, a sword, and a rocket launcher. It's good. Read on!

Come back tomorrow for an all-new review!

MOTU Nightstalker Coming June 18

MOTUEat ItVia Mattel Creations: Masters of the Universe Nightstalker Set for June 18. The price is unknown, but it's a redeco of Stridor - who may be at a Ross near you for $5.99, or a Walmart clearance aisle at or under $20.

Go run out and get a cheap Stridor if you don't have one - it's pretty neat.

Star Trek Prodigy Season 2 Drops in July

Star TrekEat ItVia Trek Core: STAR TREK: PRODIGY Season 2 Beams to Netflix on July 1. We don't know if it's one episode or the full dump of 20, but at least we'll only have a month without any Trek to watch.

The show was previously on Paramount+, and is actually pretty great. I'd recommend checking it out as long as you watch more than the first couple of episodes, as the pilot movie is a bit more of an action/adventure kid's show while the series itself evolves into something that's very much Star Trek.

Also of note, CNBC reports Paramount and Skydance agree to terms of a merger deal. This will no doubt impact new shows (or lack thereof) as new bean counters figure out what is necessary to retain subscribers going forward.

Star Wars Review: Jango Fett (Deluxe, The Vintage Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Jango Fett (Deluxe, The Vintage Collection). It may not be configured to match either of his specific looks in the movie, but all of the parts look good. The helmet is lacking his post-Kamino dent, but you do get the second jet pack - and a lot of nice articulation and painted detail. It is very nice, but given you likely have cheaper figures that are truer to the scene, you'll have to weigh "better proportions and slightly better articulation" against "already have something like it in your closet." Read the whole review.

Star Wars Review: Cad Bane (The Retro Collection)

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Cad Bane (The Retro Collection). Based on his appearance in The Book of Boba Fett, this Kenner-style figure isn't quite as Kenner-y as some others - he more or less fits in, but lacks the detail and distinctive body language of the old guys. But it's a $12 Cad Bane, and he can stand and sit, and has a swell hat. Also he's one of the few figures where a vinyl cape might have been good to serve as a coat - but in this case, the coat is molded to the figure so it doesn't get in the way of him sitting in your old vehicles. Read the whole review.

Classic Review: Four Horsemen Outer Space Men Infinity Edition Gamma X Action Figure

Figure of the DayFour Horsemen Outer Space Men Infinity Edition Gamma X Action FigureA 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 Four Horsemen Outer Space Men Infinity Edition Gamma X Action Figure was one of the last of the original prototype figures from the 1960s to finally make it out to market, in a different scale, decades later. While cool, this painted version does glow - just not very well. But it looks totally cool, and is long out of production. I like it, and he's been in display since I got him. Read on!

GBA Kickstarter Goodboy Galaxy Still Not Ready, Lawyers Involved

Game BoyEat ItVia Rik: An update. In short: if you're waiting for a cartridge, so is everybody else - First Press Games hasn't delivered the cartridges yet, and lawyers are now involved. The game itself is a lot of fun - I wanted to wait for the cartridge but instead I played the ROM - but I assume I'm not going to see the physical game any time soon. Something to consider if you are looking to do any retro crowdfunding, it certainly put cold water on my wanting to support something and wait a year (or more.)

The cartridges were due in December 2022, after the campaign kicked off in August 2021. If you were holding off for the cartridge, I might suggest just going for the download at this point. If you want the cartridge, I would recommend waiting for it to come in stock because at this point, it's not something I feel super optimistic about having in my hands this calendar year.

Old! The Hasbro Transformers Robots in Disguise Spy Changers R.E.V. (Clear) Action Figure is a Hasbro toy from 20 years ago, that's a repaint of a toy from nearly 30 years ago, that rolls on Hot Wheels track if you're so inclined. It can change from car to robot, and in my findings tends to go farther when you used a launcher than Mattel's own cars. It's impressive. Read on, and come back tomorrow for more fun!

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Millennium Falcon (Hot Wheels Carships). I picked this one up at 99 Cents Only stores (RIP) a few years ago and opened it a couple of months ago. It's pretty nifty - basically they slapped a racing stripe on the Falcon and slapped a metal ship on a plastic sled with wheels. It's pretty good - if you have a launcher, it'll go pretty far with a slight nudge. It's also one of the faster cars I've got when I tried it in a downhill race, but wasn't fast enough to beat the Slave I Carships toy I got. Read the whole review.

Star WarsVia the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Luke Skywalker (RacerVerse).

Sure, there isn't a full X worth of wings, but it's a charming little toy and the kind of thing that's fun to scoot around on your desk. It's more of an actual toy than a toy-shaped collectible, so if you have kids or tracks or race little cars, absolutely go get one of these.

Shockman Zero Getting US Super NES Release

HasbroNew!Via Retro-Bit: Kaizou Choujin Schbibinman Zero - Shockman Zero for SNES. It's a hard-to-find Japanese game getting an English translation and US release for about $59.99. Given that's what a Super NES game cost (not adjusted for inflation) about 27 years ago, that's actually not too shabby. It is expected to s hip later this year, and pre-orders are live right now.

Hasbro Unveils SDCC 2024 Items at IGN

HasbroNew!Via Hasbro and IGN: Hasbro Reveals Exclusive Star Wars, Transformers, G.I. Joe & Marvel Figures for Comic-Con 2024. It's a lot of new versions of existing characters - some exciting, like Death's Head (pictured) or a movie-inspired Cobra Commander, might inspire fans to line up. Also there are new versions o Darth Maul, Orion Pax, and Megatron which may feel a little less necessary when compared to other recent releases.

Zuru Reveals Classic Mac, Polaroid, More

HasbroNew!Via YouLoveIt: Zuru Max Retro capsule collection. There's a brick capsule collection with a Pac-Man arcade cabinet, a classic Apple Macintosh, a Polaroid camera, a boom box, a red telephone, and an old-style TV. I have no idea if any of these things are actually licensed or "close enough," but I assume they're worthy of a glance regardless.
