If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  Dekafox : (19 February 2020 - 06:14 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

No surprises there - 5 POA seems to be the new standard for movie-specific lines with the SA stuff reserved for Universe.

If the Ant-man Marvel Legends series does indeed have a bunch of Ant-men in it(and it isn't just a single figure like I've seen someone speculate) I might be all over it.

The Ant-man legacy might be a little boring, but I do really like most incarnations of the suit.

Any of your interested in the 2.5" line?

http://www.hisstank....-post95001.html

 

Close up of the HB

http://www.hisstank....-post95003.html

 

Look decent for what they are, and if merchandising is tied closely to the film, we might be seeing some War Machine action in the movie.

Yahoo has a big toy preview for the line "showing up next month"

https://www.yahoo.co...72.html?src=rss

 

No mention of the 3.75 line, which tells me it will be a limited throwaway assortment.  The big deal will be the big push for 2.5 including a "build a playset"

 

They're also getting around some of the character overload issues by packing Ultron drones with Heroes, it seems.

Kind of a shame that we've gotten three young Spider-ladies so far without there being a dedicated young Spider-lady body.

That "teenage" girl body isn't bad, but it could be spidery-er.

 

Also, does Ultimare Spider-Woman have sculpted lips? Is that accurate to the comics?

It probably varies by artist, but none of the others with covered mouths have that.

 

edit: I think I'd really be into that 2.5 stuff as a kid.

Regular action bored me because of their lack of articulation, but that's a lot easier to excuse on smaller figures, especially ones that tie in with playsets.

Miguel, Anti-Venom and possibly 616 Spidey are buys.

 

Mayday is a maybe. Already have the variant DD from the Holocaust wave so he's out and I don't have an attachment to Ultimate Jessica.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

I wouldn't be surprised if I still had some of those pizza slices the original Ninja Turtles came with.

 

At least, I always used them as pizza slices. They were probably some kind of weird weapon.

Official pics are out from Hasbro:

http://news.toyark.c...ges-info-148359

 

Oddly, War Machine gets mentioned, but no mention of Scarlett Witch, Black Widow, Quicksilver or Vision.  Given the greater scope of the line and character range than GotG, I'm suspecting we'll get a wave 2 of at least the 2 packs come this fall.  Also noticing some pieces on that Avengers Tower that don't appear to be with any of the box sets, unless the Quinjet comes with a few pieces (or, again, Hasbro has a wave 2 of sets coming in the fall).

Also, that Iron Man 2.5" figure looks better painted than the 3.75 figure :p

 

No mention of Legends or the 5 POA figures, which really does say to me Hasbro views them as secondary to the kid push.

 

 

Of course, there are endless posts on the internet bemoaning the lack of "proper" action figures, which is frustrating to read because we all know what would happen:

Hasbro shows a super articulated 3.75" line-

Complaints at the 12.99 pricepoint

Complaints about any "kid centric" inclusions or articulation modifications

Complaints that the first wave are all guys we've already gotten

Complaints that (because the first wave's mediocre sales) "necessary characters" don't see wide distribution in subsequent waves

Complaints that some "necessary characters" don't get made in the first place

Complaints Hasbro isn't making a $60 Quinjet

Complaints Hasbro WAS making a $60 Quinjet

Complaints that Hasbro didn't make a 3.75 scaled Avengers tower (and even if they were, people would likely complain it would be too expensive, just like the Helicarrier)

Complaints when later waves show up at discounters some don't have access to.

And so on...

 

To me, I'd much rather see a REAL focus on getting kids hooked with cheap, fun toys, than drive them away with multiple (remember, there's a 6" segment too) collector centric offerings with high pricepoints.

 

I did a cost analysis at Hisstank when Guardians were out, and I figure that for $45-50, a kid could get the ENTIRE Guardians team, with ship, and a handful of secondary characters.  At 3.75" scale, to accomplish that would cost three times that (assuming some characters even got made to begin with)
