Newbie (1/14)



  1. It's actually a wheeled vehicle with a zip thingy where you pull out the zip cord and it goes flying off, but the wheels don't look too out of place. Oh and the back end is open. I'll probably do a few more pics and toss up a full review on my blog at some point, but I wanted to get these pics up here, first.
  2. Long time no see, as always! I seem to only pop up to see what happened after months and months - OR - because I found new product! Case in point: Looks like Tomy took over the toyline for the new series. Not sure what I'm gona get out of it, but you can be sure THIS was an instant buy! FINALLY!! An Eggmobile! It ain't bad, either. Also, Robotnik is lookin' LEAN! Guy must have gone through a major workout regimen. Or drugs. That's, uh....lotta weight to lose. Lotta weight. Of course, classic Robotnik fits! Could be a better fit, but it certainly works for me.
  3. *YAWN* What's goin' on folks? I'm wakin' up here 'cause - somehow - Toys R Us put out a few more of the single packed Sonic figures (the ones with the accessories). Funny thing is: the last time I saw them? LAST CHRISTMAS. Sooo...are they only putting these out on Christmas? 'Cause there has seriously been no Sonic stuff until now. Just the same stuff. And I KNOW Jazwares is supposed to be putting stuff out! I think they're also putting out Adventure Time stuff, but the TRU near me won't stock anything. They just...let everything rot. Not a single new piece of product. Is it just my TRU? I mean I check online and I see new Jazwares product that supposedly exists, but I see it nowhere else. Ah well. I did buy another regular Sonic 'cause the single pack comes with some rings, so that's cool. Still looking for the Amy with the hammer, though. I also hope that 5 inch ones with the light up emeralds comes out! Who knows?
  4. So what have people been seeing for Sonic product lately? I've been checking since Christmas and they haven't stocked any more of the new single packs since then. Not a thing. There are some other items, but those single packs just NEVER showed back up! I wish the Sonic stuff would go back to other stores as well to give it a shot. TRU mixed with Jazwares just means "Yeah, whenever."
  5. Found Blaze as well! She's pretty impressive! All her joints are tight and she has just as nice a sculpt as the rest. Jazwares standard paint job has to be sorted through first, of course. They only had three packs there, so I had to settle for a good looking Blaze but a funky Sonic (which doesn't matter as much, since I don't need a new one). I do wish Blaze had a bit more than a DEAD ON STARE, but she's supposed to be all serious 'n stuff so it kinda works for her. Also wish she had come with some flame stuff, but I have enough junk around to fill that in for her. Overall a cool figure!
  6. Thankfully I left that all behind me years ago! Sneaking in toys was the norm back in high school 'cause my dad thought they were useless. 'Course...toys increased in number because I displayed them in my room, so it's not like I could pull the wool over his eyes. Anyway, my wife buys just as much stuff as I do, though she doesn't collect as many toys as she used to. I pretty much show her everything I buy because I like showin' things off. Plus, with regular MotUC figures coming in every month...well, that would be hard to hide! So yeah, no sneaking for me anymore.
  7. Yeah, all in all I'm glad to have it if they don't release him any other way. If they DO...well, perhaps I'll just try my hand at repainting this one. At the very least, the sculpt is fantastic.
  8. Found the Chaotix! Please excuse the shoddy lighting compared to past pics; I just moved into my first house and my toy room is a terrifying mess. No place to take pics. Anyway, somehow Charmy is the coolest figure! Espio would be awesome, but DANG he's lanky! He's just....man, he's huge! Way too big. On his own he's cool, but when you set him next to anyone he just dwarfs them. Vector is cool though, and I like his little radio. Charmy is perfect! Articulation works and everything and he looks great...can't help but think that Tails should be that tall, though. Still pretty cool! Speaking of Tails, I got the new one for the holding-hands. New joints are cool, but a little thick looking. It's worth it for the hands, though. Love the little...thing he's got, though! Dunno what it's for, but it's a nice little peice of tech for 'em. Only thing different is that he's darker now...but I don't mind. Also got the new Knuckles for the Master Emerald! No new joints, but he works just as well as the previous one. This one is also darker, though. Not sure what I'm gona do with 'em since he's an extra...might hand 'em off to the nephew. ...and now the insane part. I bought the new multipack JUST for that classic Metal Sonic, and I've already got all the other figures in that pack. The end result is a chunk of cash lost for one of the ugliest paintjobs they've done so far. Kinda surprised, honestly! The previous Metal Sonics were so shiny and nice...I don't know why this one just gets flat grey slopped on. Still...I can't help but like him. And heck, it's not all wasted cash 'cause most of 'em can go to my nephew (unless any of you need some extras...?) Anyway, if they only ever release him this way, then I'd kick myself later for skipping him, so there. Gotta collect my favorite evil robot ever, ya know?
  9. Well, now I'm glad I passed up Espio and the two pack with Vector. The three pack looks perfect! Pluse, my friend recently let me borrow his 32X and Chaotix, so I'll be playing it for the first time. Nice timing!
  10. Man, Jazwares confuses the heck outta me sometimes! The Sonic figures have seriously been the best product they've ever produced, because it seems like each new toyline is built from the ground up without ever looking at other toys on the market. I just bought Space Ghost from thier Hanna Barbera line: ...I dunno why he's sayin' that. *AHEM* Anyway, overall he's a sturdy figure and he'll work fine for play 'n all that. The confusing things come in when you inspect the guy. For instance...every single peg holding him together can be easily pushed out. You can take this guy completely apart. You can even pop his legs off at the thighs! Funny thing is that I can't call this a bad thing, because none of the pegs actually fall out...they're just not pegged in like every toy out there, ever. His chest joint is also a new invention. I mean, it works like every other chest joint, but it was needlessly reinvented even though there have been better looking chest joints in just about....well, any toyline you look into. It's like these guys just make this stuff up as they go! Worst thing is the fact that they thought to make his right hand in the position to fire his gauntlet on his left hand - he usually uses his two fingers like that - but they didn't give him a bicep swivel! So he can't swivel his arm and touch his opposite arm. He's just not built to, but he IS built with the idea that he should be able to? Once again, the funny part is that he's not a bad figure. He's still fun to play with and any kid would have a good time with him. It's just...making a Hanna Barbera toyline like this will probably attract a lot of collectors, so you'd think they would put a little more work into the articulation. Which is also funny, because they DID put a lot of work into the articulation...they just left out one point that completely negates the hand they molded for him. YEESH. Jazwares, you have the strangest bunch of folks workin' for you, I swear. I'm just waitin' on more Sonic goodness, now, 'cause at least you guys have that down pat.
  11. Yeah, I keep wanting to get the Regular Show stuff, but Mordecai is the only one I like so far. I really want a Rigby, but they molded his mouth in this crazy nutcracker pose and he looks freakish. Also, it just seems like Jazwares' paint jobs are getting so gloppy. I haven't found a Hanna Barbera figure I want yet, but when I do, it looks like it'll be hell going through them trying to find a paint job without smears or glops or chips. Same kinda went for the small Mortal Kombat figures as well, and on top of that, you could take off a lot of the paint with just your fingernail if you weren't careful. More and more I'm wondering why I'm paying normal toy prices for Jazwares stuff when they seem like they're doing things a little cheaper than others. I wouldn't mind all the errors if they were just a little cheaper.
  12. Yeah, that sucker went down quick. I'm still pecking at the missions, but I need those stupid play coins to unlock them, and honestly, the 3DS is my wife's and I don't feel like carrying it with me everywhere so I can gain more coins. I have the console version, but I haven't gotten around to playing it yet. It'll probably next!
  13. *yawn* HEY, I'm awake again! What's been happening? I think I was here last....what, Christmas? I went back a few pages to catch up (a little, anyway): saw the list of potential figures 'n some other stuff. Reason I'm back is that the Sonic bug is biting again, but there's no new product (a fact that seemed to be well covered here). I saw those Erector sets today and it made me think of the 'ol thread. The sets look kinda boring, but....dangit, they have Emeralds in them! Now I'm curious about how big they are; anyone know? I'm almost thinking of buying the smallest set just to see...not that I'd bother buying them all just to get some smaller Emeralds. Anyway, another reason I'm thinkin' Sonic is that my friend brought over his old Sega (and for him, "old" means friggin' pristine and dust free) so I was blasting through Sonic 3 for the heck of it. I want some new blood, but I still haven't gotten around to getting Sonic 4 Ep. 2, since I bought the Wii version like a sucker, and now I gotta buy them both again on another system to get the extras. Instead I beat up the 3DS version of Generations...that was quick. GAH. Very much looking forward to new toys right now! Jazwares is pumping out some Hanna Barbera stuff, so I know they're workin' hard. Need some love on the Sonic end too!
  14. Kinda strange that the Nendo one looks like classic Sonic but he comes with all the current Sonic stuff. Totally would get it if it came with the old TVs and a lamppost. As it is, though, I'm pretty happy with the Jazwares offerings.
  15. HA! That's actually not far off from my christmas tradition from when I was little: every year I would do some sorta story with my toys and involve the tree as a mountain or base or - well heck, a giant tree! 'Course I was usually using superhero toys back then, but I'm sure Sonic would have been on there if the toys had existed back then. Seriously though: hilarious. I totally forgot the bear was half in the photo. I think i'll call his new bear friend Duff the Bear. Sorry Tails! You're not in this game (not until they make a Tails figure that can strike a decent flying pose; I want him to look like he's flying around the tree!)
