Perfect for those that like high-end babies! Like Angelina Jolie. We’re reporting on these mostly for their absurdity and the audaciousness of that $69.99 price. These figures are pitched at a different class of bobble-head collector; someone with a lot of money and, it seems, poor eyesight – their claim of “Totally Ten Different Characters!” is a deplorable lie. Glancing at the poster reveals their … Continue reading High-End Baby Bumblebee Movie Figures by Killerbody
Thanks go to Autobase Aichi for these pictures of the soon-to-be-released Prowl and Chromia, part of the highly anticipated second wave of War For Cybertron: Siege toys. While there are some stunners in Wave 2, we can’t help but feel that Prowl and Chromia are together the low point of the series so far. Chromia has some nice detailing, but that can’t hide the fact she’s … Continue reading WFC: Siege Prowl and Chromia In-Hand Images
Let’s be real about this, folks. If you want to call this “Blitzwing”, that’s up to you, and you’d technically be correct. But that’s a bit like calling the Tesco own-brand cola that your wife buys “Coke”. You’re just lying to yourself to make it easier to swallow. This is Starscream. Starscream how he was always meant to be in the movies. Back in 2006 when … Continue reading Prime 1 Studios Blitzwing Statue Images and Details
Thanks go to our friends in Japan Snakas Blog for providing us with a look at Ravage, Laserbeak, Stakeout and Red Heat out of package! Wait. Red Heat? Wasn’t that a film? It was actually two films, released less than three years apart, in the eighties. Hasbro couldn’t get the rights to “Red Hot” we suppose, presumably because it’s not defensible as a trademark and because it has … Continue reading WFC: Siege Wave 2 Micromasters In-Hand Images
Blam! Pow! Kazooie! Courtesy of our fellow countrymen In Demand Toys, we have our first look at the upcoming G1 Minibot re-issues Warpath and Gears. These will be Walmart exclusives in the US, but of course they will find their way to online retailers across the globe. They should set you back around £11 each if you manage to snag them in the UK. Here’s … Continue reading G1 Warpath and Gears Re-Issues Coming Soon!
Me Swoop no see retail release! A short time ago, mysterious listings began to appear for “Red Swoop” and “Ricochet”. Hasbro must’ve done a deal with Ronseal, because for once we got exactly what it said on the tin: repaints of Power of the Primes Swoop (with a red chest) and Jazz (in his Guy Fieri cosplay) . More surprising perhaps was their method of … Continue reading Generations Selects Swoop and Ricochet Available for Pre-Order
The latest incarnation of our beloved G1 Optimus Prime has been seen in the wild! Well, this one certainly had a relatively short gestation period. Only a few weeks after the rumour of a new (old?) Generation 1 Optimus Prime re-issue hit the interwebs, the toy has been found at retail in the United States for the grimace-inducing price of $50. As might be plain to … Continue reading 2019 Optimus Prime Re-Issue Spotted at US Retail
Premium Deluxe Listed! Everyone’s favourite seasick fem-bot has surfaced on Amazon. This is good news for those hoping to add her to their collection as it means pre-orders won’t be too far away. However, if you are one of those that has spent the last thirty-four years hoping to add an obscure, mute, unnamed character that appeared in only one episode of the G1 cartoon to … Continue reading WFC:Siege Greenlight Listed on Amazon
