I have a dream that all of those unwanted toys from yesteryear can one day try again. I have a dream that one day all of the next experiences will feel like first experiences. I have a dream that we can all live peacefully in a future protected by Terry McGuiness and Miguel O’Hara both.
Amiami posted something really interesting from Wonderfest 2013 via their Facebook page. I know a few people that will die when this news hits them. Scorpinok stands roughly the same height as Fortress Maximus, if not a bit taller. Weapons include Scorponok's rifle and Zarak Shield. Judging from the picture it seems as though there will be alternate head parts for a toy / Headmasters style head or a Rebirth style head. Not sure if it transforms just yet so hopefully we will find out soon enough.
We have a treat for you guys today, our FIRST Custom vehicle to be featured on Needless Essentials Online and it's an awesome one. If your interested, and I know you are, just keep reading! The vehicle in question is the mighty Septic Hiss Tank.
I have to agree with our friends at Jedi Temple Archives, this case pack assortment makes little sense. Too many carry over figures from previous assortments. I personally would like to see a case pack of all new figures (6 new doubled up). These one per case figs make it tough to get at retail. Plus the last thing we need is a large amount of peg warmers hogging the shelves. Think back to the Vintage Phantom Menace wave. I still see those darn things on the pegs. This list of course comes from StarWarsFiguren.com The Black Series – Wave 3 Darth Vader Luke Skywalker Clone Pilot Luminara Unduli 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper Stormtrooper Mara Jade Skywalker Merumeru Vizam Darth Plageuis Mace Windu (The Clone Wars) Commander Neyo
Oh what a surprise this was! After so many ho-hum battle packs we finally get something to shout home about. These sets are gorgeous to say the least and I am thrilled we are getting them. Our friends over at StarWarsFiguren.com revealed the two unannounced sets today! Click on over for a peek.
Well it seems like Rocksteady & Bebop will hit the States only and not overseas. Such a shame as all fans should be able to grab these incredible figures. We had a chance to "play" with them at Toy Fair and they are awesome! I am not sure what the future holds for these retro style figures but for now, I would grab them if you see them.
Iron Man 3: Tony Stark (Mandarin Mansion Assault Version) The 15th ACGHK is just one day away and the special edition of the following collectible figurine is only available for pre-order during the event for fans in Hong Kong! Tony Stark, the beloved hero and billionaire genius, faced some challenging issues in Iron Man 3.
