Our friends at Yakface.com are reporting that the Republic Gunship has hit a Toys R Us! The vehicle retails for $119.99 and comes with two bubble-turrets and three TVC style action figures: Yoda, Clone Pilot and Clone Trooper. I know some might feel a tad sticker shock but the value is there. Be on the lookout as these will start hitting stores across the country any day now.
MP-08 Asian Exclusive Grimlock will be available at this years New York Comic Con via Lunar Toys. If you missed the initial release of this bad boy at Toys R Us and you are planning to go to the show, here you go! I cannot stress how rare this version is and I cannot stress how tough this MP will be to acquire. You can pick this piece up at booth 1581 while supplies last. I am still hoping that we will see this re-released via Toys R Us once again. I know with the 30th Anniversary going on it is quite possible.
The lead up to Dark Cybertron continues with the first of a two part story focusing on Soundwave. How does the issue handle itself? Find out in the latest review of Robots in Disguise.
While visiting some friends in Kentucky this past weekend I made a unique find at a local Wal- Mart. It seems all the Black Series Star Wars figures had been taped at the top of the bubble. Now I am not sure if this was done at the store level or if they came from the manufacture this way. All I know is it fixed this stores issue with the detached cardback debacle. As you see in the picture this was done nicely as it did not take away from the figure. I know this issue is frustrating and I really hope this is addressed before the next wave hits. With all of that said, what have you been finding at retail? This was the only Wal-Mart to actually have these figs so I do not know if it's store level or higher. Let us know what you see.
Our buddy Colbey over at randomtoyreview.com has just done a review of a knock off version of the Transformers Super God Masterforce character Browning. Browning proper is one of those hard to get Transformers toys, so Colbey was more than pleased to get a much cheaper knock off for the time being. Check out
