  1. Back in March 2020, a Canadian Youtuber name Micheal Mercy did a review on some 3D Printed stuff for upgrades, add-ons, and/or replacements for the old 5" Kenner The Real Ghostbusters line, as it include Proton Packs, streamers, and Slime Blowers for the figures, roof racks for Ecto-1 and 1A, and replacement doors for the Firehouse. There might be a PK Meter coming out for the figures in the near future as well. Here are some Youtube links, with the 1st to the review, and the 2nd on a updated "Addendum" on the topic: - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_50VFJpAkhw - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edStogymuaI Micheal Mercy also did a "Toy Guys Talking" like Interview with Charlie himself, as I should note that it's about 1 Hour and 12 minutes if you decide to watch and listen to it: - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yl0ekimHfn8 What seems really cool is that most of the 3D Printed stuff seems to be a bit strong and durable, not fragile like most 3D Printed plastic stuff(Or at least, the ones I've held in my hand). Will have to consider some proton packs, slime blowers, and streamers(Especially the Glow In The Dark Streamer). Here's a link to Charlie's Custom Toy Shop's eBay site, as from what I can tell, he's going to soon have his own site: - https://www.ebay.com/usr/charliescustomtoyshop
  2. With that 6" line coming out(Assuming it still comes out this year what with the Convid-19), it's a good way to market the nostalgia of the Real American Hero/Joe V.S. Cobra concept. Even if some character designs are very different.
  3. I'm wondering if this means that the new Ghostbusters toys are getting delayed as well or not, including Re-issue Kenner style The Real Ghostbusters toys? Only asking this because for the Re-issue Kenner line, I only want Peter. Yeah, I'm well aware that buying toys might be on the low priority for many at this time, but I'll be honest, if that Kenner Peter did come out during this whole Convid-19 mess, I would have to strongly consider it. Otherwise, I agree it's a good call to delay it for next year.
  4. To be honest for me, it would depend on at the time I win the prize. I may say something today if I won, but say I win 9 months later, and it will be a different story. For example, today I might say a Transformers, but say 9 months later, and it might end up being a few vintage toys from the 1990's.
  5. So.., since it's in 2040, Green Arrow Beyond? Also, since it seems like 2 Carney's from actors who apparently have played them in this Arrowverse, is it due to time travel or alternation dimension thanks to Legends Of Tomorrow? I suppose we don't really know right now since we still have to wait for the last half of the Crisis event to air. For the record, I've not really watched any of these Arrorverse shows, except for maybe at least 2 episodes of Supergirl, so my knowledge is limited.
  6. Since this Leader Class G1 style Optimus Prime with Trailer doesn't seem to come with a Roller, I wonder if they will do a Roller in a Micromaster style type toy, similar to the Classics Legends Class Thrilling 30 IDW Optimus Prime And Roller 2 pack? If so, I imagine that Roller will have the tragetmaster ability to turn in to a blaster of sorts. I'll be honest, I would strongly consider a few different colours if they do a Micromaster Roller in different colours. I'm sure we'll know more at NYCC this weekend.
  7. I think Supergirl's suit might make more sense if this season, she decides to be more grown up and wants to be call "Superwoman" instead of Supergirl. I do think she seems a bit older in the photo, though that could be lighting and her hair style. I mean, in most versions of Supergirl, she's a superheroine either during her teens or very early 20's. If I recalled when the series 1st started back I Season 1, it was established that Kara was around 24 years old. So assuming that the events for each season takes place the same time frame as the viewers for each season, she would have to be getting closer to her late 20's by now. And while I've only seen 2 full episodes of this series back from Season 1, given from what I've heard has happened in this show and the stuff she has gone through, she's also had to deal with a lot of stuff, with the possibility of maturing as well. While I'm more into a traditional look for Supergirl, I do think this costume is okay. If it's because they want to change her suit for the sake of change(Especially for merch or promo reasons), then I do think it's okay, but I do think it would make more sense if it's due to her growth and maturing.
  8. Just want to say that I've only started to watch some of your videos since shortly after the New Year(Or maybe it was late 2018, I don't remember), and I do enjoy them, and listening to your own opinions, regardless if I've agree with them or not. Especially when you do a comment on something really strange or WTF type response. Course it probably helps that you have a Belgium accent, so you end up sounding different from the usual Youtubers I check out. Either way, just check out the recent video on the 5 Best Comic Storylines. Keep up the good work.
  9. Was curious about something. I thought in terms of the Fan Voting thing for the War For Cybertron Siege, that people would be voting for 2 Packs, and since Mirage and Impactor were the winners, that those 2 would be sold in a V.S. 2 Pack or something like that. Did Hasbro change their minds on offering it as a 2 pack? Here's are links from TFormers back when the voting started and ended: - https://tformers.com/fan-vote-live-vote-for-a-war-for-cybertron-2-pack-needlenosevstracks-impactorvsmirage-spinistervswheeljack/33244/news.html - https://tformers.com/transformers-generations-fan-vote-result-announced-for-war-for-cybertron-two-pack/33276/news.html While it's cool that both are still getting release separate, it's kind of a shame there is no 2 pack, as I was really looking forward to them offered in it.
  10. Well, I guess if you need more weapons like blasters, guns, and what not, try some of the Fortnite 4" stuff. There are some Weapon Packs in a Loot Chest, Weapon Packs with 1 Figure, and a sort of Buildable Set of sorts. The best part of the Loot Chests is that while the all look the same, the packaging does tell you which set you are getting, and what accessories the Chest comes with. However, if you want to know what colours and/or what they look like, you'll have to do a bit of online looking around to see what the accessories look like in each set. Here are some links from Big Bad Toy Store and ToyWiz for pics and info: - https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/84769 - https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/84770 - https://toywiz.com/fortnite-loot-chest-mystery-pack/ - https://toywiz.com/fortnite-loot-chest-frozen-shroud/ - https://toywiz.com/fortnite-catalyst-loot-chest/ - https://toywiz.com/fortnite-loot-chest-rust-bucket/ - https://toywiz.com/fortnite-loot-chest-uplink/ As for say an Arcade Machine, some companies in the last few years have Released some Old Retro Video Games in a Small looking Arcade Machine, as I've even seen some tiny ones that actually work. You can more find these around Christmas time, since many people would consider getting them as a Stocking Stuffer, or a small, nice size gift for someone. Sadly, I have no idea which ones are the best for Scale, unless I either bring a 4" figure with me, or I buy a few, and then try and see how the figure would look scaled with the Packaging of the Arcade Machine. Maybe try the "World's Smallest" Releases a try, but I can't say for sure if those are too small for 4" figures. I think the ones from My Arcade are the next step up in size, but could come across as too big(Especially the Thumb Stick). Here is are some links to check out some of these Small Arcade Machines a try, including a few Youtube Reviews: - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jh5z7CnNBBw - https://www.geek.com/games/my-arcades-micro-players-pack-big-fun-in-a-small-package-1738320/ - https://www.amazon.com/fun-ET7850-Mini-Arcade-Machine/dp/B01GKE0XRE - https://www.amazon.com/Arcade-Classics-Pac-Man-Retro-Mini/dp/B01DK2WO1C/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_bs_img_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=Z0RN3QWBET86E53V2GHY - https://www.amazon.com/Arcade-Machine-Handheld-Gaming-System-electronic/dp/B00S4HI1NY/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_tr_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=Z0RN3QWBET86E53V2GHY - https://www.amazon.com/My-Arcade-Machine-Portable-Built-electronic/dp/B01D19RD1U/ref=pd_bxgy_63_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01D19RD1U&pd_rd_r=8a9ddbd6-2732-11e9-afa8-81715460dc49&pd_rd_w=iJopf&pd_rd_wg=Fzgh7&pf_rd_p=3f9889ac-6c45-46e8-b515-3af650557207&pf_rd_r=FNPNDBP8RFX87HDH4NM1&psc=1&refRID=FNPNDBP8RFX87HDH4NM1 - https://www.amazon.com/THUMBS-UP-Thumbsup-Arcade-Machine/dp/B01KA5K57C/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_lp_t_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=Z0RN3QWBET86E53V2GHY Sometimes, some Candy companies do some Small Scale stuff in Tin or Plastic Shape stuff, with candies, mints, and what not, including some Arcade Machines. Could come across as tiny for 4" figures still, since they seem to be around 3.5" tall. Here are some links pics and info(2nd shows a ruler that measures the Ms. Pac-man one): - https://www.amazon.com/Pac-Man-Candies-Display-Strawberry/dp/B008CS5FB6?th=1 - https://candyenvy.com/products/ms-pac-man-arcade-ghosts-arcade-cabinet-shaped-candy-tins-3-pack - https://candyhero.com/space-invaders-arcade-tin Hope this gives you a good start. I think for some of the Arcade ones, you might need to do a bit of custom work if you want them to have a different design.
  11. I'll be honest, it would probably take me a while to figure out a Top 10 figures/toys of 2017. However, I do have a few in mind, some I own, some I don't. In no particular order: - Mattel 12" DC Multiverse Movie Wonder Woman: I my opinion, 1 of the best affordable 12" figure of 2017(You know, something that is under $50 Canadian), as it cost around $35-$40 Canadian. Very Good likeness to Gadot, comes with sword, and energy like burst, and nice articulation. But the thing that puts it over the top is the 2 bullet ricochets that you can plug into her bracelets. That's almost Hot Toys-esque, at least to me(Never owned Hot Toys, as I don't think I'll ever will due to the price). The only thing missing was her Shield, which I think was a missed opportunity, because they could of had a few plugs on the shield to put those bullet ricochets on as well. Those bullet ricochets were enough to convince me to buy it, as I've never had a interest in buying 12" figures before. But this figure, started me off in strongly consider buying a few 12" figures from now and then if they are at a good price(For the record, I now have about 3 to 4 x 12" figures). It helps that I don't own a 6" Gadot WW figure either, so it work out for me, as it will be different scale and looking from my other 6" and under WW figures. Sigh, looks like I'm starting a new scale, and it's thanks to this figure. - Hasbro TRU Exclusive Marvel Legends 6" Modern Hydra 2 Pack: Pretty much all the Marvel Legends 2 Packs where hits I think, especially the Spidey and MJ set, Homecoming, and the Dark Pheniox set. But the Hydra set, you could customize the 2 figures into different looks. I don't own this set because I felt I didn't need it(To be fair, if it was a Classic Hydra 2 pack, I would of jumped at it. Nothing wrong with modern, just didn't feel the need for it), but I think it's the best ML 2 pack of 2017. - Hasbro 12" Marvel Legends Thor: I don't own this figure, but I can't deny that I think this is the best 12" Marvel Legends figure to date. Hulk is very cool thanks to his mass size. But the thing about Thor is that it just looks awesome to me regardless of which head he has, and I love how he comes with 2 hammers: 1 regular, 1 to represent when lighting is being channeled from it. I may strongly consider getting it. - Hasbro Deluxe Transformers: Titans Returns Triggerhappy: Never heard of this guy till it got released, but I can't deny how great it looks. I think it's my Favourite Deluxe figure from Titans Returns, as I got it. - Playmates SDCC TMNT Usagi Yojimbo: Don't own it. Nothing wrong with the regular release, but the SDCC version takes it to the next level thanks to the extra heads, more accessories, and the comic book included. I think it's the best SDCC Exclusive of 2017. That's all I can think of. Guess I'm half way there though.
  12. Even if DePriest states it's to Stay after the new movie comes out, it will really depend on how well the toys sell that will determine if it's here to stay or not. So I more suspect he means he's hoping it's here to stay. I think DePriest was being optimistic. They may have big plans when the new movie comes out, but if it doesn't do good in terms of selling product, then it will again be put on hold. When Joe returns, we have no idea in what format either, let alone if it's going to be 4", 6", 8", 12", 10" titans style, 2.5", or an entirely different scale or number of scales. I would hope they will still be very well articulated with mostly ball jointes. We have no idea if it will be Joe V.S. Cobra, Adventure Team inspired, or something else all together, like a new concept. We really don't know at this time, and I'm not even sure if Hasbro knows at this time too(Maybe in 2019 when they start development of the toys once actual production of the movie begins. Assuming it happens of course). I would hope they do 4" figures that are very well articulated. To be fair, while if they do 6" figures, I'm sure most of us would want designs based on the 1980's-1990's looks of the characters, I personally would pick them up if they were new designs or designs that I don't have in 4" scale.
  13. It's too bad Hasbro didn't do a mass or store exclusive release of 4" figures based on John Barber's G.I. Joe V.S. Transformers. Even during the 50th Anniversary line, or a limited series or something. Felt this way especially after I got the FCBD comic from around 2014, as time went on, I noticed some characters either had different looks, costumes, and/or decos. I recently had a quick skim at a trade paperback that had the 1st few issues together. Could of even consider doing some Comic Book 2 or 3 packs if they wanted. Looking at the designs, many would probably be repaints, but some would be newer sculpted, or at the very least, having some reuse with some new sculpted pieces. Which would of been fine for a budgeted Joe line if anything. Some of my ideas of what they could of done: - Scarlett: Repaint 25th Anniversary Scarlett in Green and Orange. Maybe include the oxygen mask that she wore in 1 issue, and 1 of her arrows having a grenade arrow. - Snake Eyes: Repaint of the 25th Anniversary Version 1 Snake Eyes in dark blue with Red Goggles, and include a "Handsome" swapping head, and maybe even a "Bandaged" swapping head(From the Pursuit Of Cobra line maybe). Or at the very least, the body could be Pursuit Of Cobra's Version 1 inspired figure with the 25th Anniversary Version 1 head, since I find the 25th version head captures the big looking googles that the original Version 1 head had. I suppose they could also do a 25th/Retaliation Version 2 inspired Snake Eyes in purple. - Spirit with a Mohawk. - General Flagg. - Dr. Venom. - Duke in Cobra Trooper/Officer disguise. Includes swapping heads. - I suppose 50th Anniversary Baroness with red glasses. - Serpentress(I believe this is the Baroness who got scarred up). - Hooded Cobra Commander. So much Commanders have been done, I'm sure they could use a bunch of different parts, combine them, and repaint it in the deco in a blue with silver trim here and there with pupil less eyes. - Maybe Bazooka with both a Joe and Cobra helmet, with Blue Pants. - Maybe include Dial-tone, because even if he isn't different from his normal look, would of been a nice way to get him into regular retail to give him a chance to get into more collectors hands, instead of being just a Joecon exclusive. These are really the only characters I can think of that had a different look or deco from pervious versions, or have never been released in retail. I'm sure there are more, but I can't think of any, as I do know that many characters still didn't get any changes from their classic look.
  14. I don't know. I really did like the 25th Anniversary and onwards stuff, though to be fair, most of my G.I. Joe 4" collection is figures from 2007 and onwards. However, I do still mix my 25th and onwards stuff with older stuff from the original Real American Hero line from the 1980's-1990's, along with the 2001-2005 line. So I don't have any issues personally. To be fair as well, some of the early original 1980's figures had really large heads compare to their bodies, though I will admit, on the Cobra side, it was okay for characters who where wearing fully covered helmets, like Cobra Commander, the Vipers, and Destro(If you like the concept he is wearing a metal face mask similar to Dr. Doom, instead of a skin tight advance mask that mimics his facial expressions).
