Harmony Gold is not happy about Hasbro's recent SDCC 2013 exclusive G.I. Joe/Transformers Crossover set. The set features a G.I. Joe V.A.M.P. as Hound and G.I. Joe Skystriker as Jetfire with booster pack. Apparently Harmony Gold feels the Jetfire toy treads on their intellectual property and has filed a copyright lawsuit in Federal Court. The filing can be viewed by clicking here.
I so hope this is true. It seems that someone overheard Derryl DePriest mention that the Han would be coming out in another format at some point in time. All those crazy prices might be for null. Click on through to Rebelscum for the full report. At the same time, we will try and get some clarification on that statement. Once we do we will spread the word.

Classic Teenage Ninja Turtles are coming! If you thought the turtle craze was done how about a nostalgic trip down memory lane. These are what we like to call retro figures. They are meant to compliment a vintage collection and they look great. Some might call these a cash grab or a waste of time; I call them awesome and if you do not like em, don't buy them. Retail will be $12.99 for the single carded figures and I know for a fact, you cannot buy a vintage carded figure for that price. Click on through for the pics. Also in case your wondering, TRU.com has them up for pre-order as of now.
Here you go guys, our final report (maybe) and this one is big. Pics from around the convention floor. You will see props, cosplay, some kick ass Alloy Iron Man figures and so much more! A huge thanks goes out to Troy Hasbrouck for getting us these photos. Next year we will be on site to deliver our readers a killer presentation. Till then, explore our galleries.
Super 7 has come out of nowhere to bring us something really special. As most of you know Super 7 is producing the original Alien figures from the 70's. These figures were scrapped due to the nature of the film and parental outrage. This year we will finally get these toys made from the original molds and if the line goes well, we will get more. For now check out the gallery.
Playarts and DC go hand in hand due to the incredible Batman pieces they both produce. Of course each company has their own style and products but i felt it would be cool to see them both together. I am a fan and I have met the guys behind some of the coolest DC products on the market. The B&W statues are sweet and so is the New 52 figures. Check em out after the jump!
Both Gentle Giant and Bridge Direct had some pretty incredible items on display. GG still rules the Star Wars Bust/ Statue market and Bridge Direct controls the Hobbit toy line. Both companies are outstanding and we want you to see some of their goods. I am still in disbelieve that we are getting a retro Wampa in the vintage line. More after the jump!
Mattel finally showed us a near complete Castle Greysskull and so much more! I am really digging the retro Batman series (Adam West for the win!) and He-Man is still strong as ever. You can check out the full gallery after the jump!
Kotobukiya had some kick ass collectibles on display at SDCC. I think we need to take a second look just in case we missed something. We did get a good look at the upcoming Mara Jade art work. I do believe this will be a part of our anniversary give-a-way next year (more on that latter). For now, enjoy the gallery.
Here is our final gallery for Hasbro; Marvel and G.I. JOE all in one! You have to check out the incredible Marvel display Hasbro had at the show. So much goodness in here so go ahead, click on through!
