  1. In case you missed it, or haven't seen people complaining all over social media for the last few days (lucky!), Hasbro has announced a new Marvel Legends Spider-man figure, with the new Gamerverse Advance Suit, for a whopping $34,99 (Ouch). This led to several toy reviewers from Youtube to reconsider their choices, and one of them came up with a perfect solution: Why buy new when you can tote-dive for old stuff and review them as if they were new? "The toy prices are getting so out of hand that I will not be able to continue reviewing brand new figures right when they come out", told Robert G., a collector from North Carolina. "But I also still want to keep posting content for my followers, so I came up with the idea of reviewing older figures from my personal collection, as if they were brand new. Most of them are in great condition so it's actually not that far from brand new, and I also have a lot of them still in mint condition, so I can now continue to do unboxing videos, even if I unbox figures that are 5-10 years old, instead of the newer stuff." "I can also "cheat" a bit, and keep up with current themes: Whenever a new Spider-man figure will come out, I will review an old Spider-man action figure from my collection, which should still boost the views a bit, because people might think it's the latest one. Kinda like those rip-off movies that come out at the same time as big blockbuster movies, that have nearly exactly the same name, but were way cheaper to make!" More news at 11:00... Improvise. Adapt. Review old stuff.

  4. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the much anticipated Haslab Galactus from the Hasbro Marvel Legends line. Hasbro Pulse was not available in Europe back then, but when this gigantic Galactus was announced during the summer last year, I placed my order within the first minutes it popped up on Hasbro's European partner, Zavvi. And finally, Galactus has arrived! I grew up with all the ToyBiz versions of him (the Fantastic Four one with his 'planetary converter' vacuum cleaner accessory, the Silver Surfer one that said "I ... HUNGER!", along with the smaller Silver Surfer one, and of course, the Marvel Legends Build-a-figure), so this was a no-brainer for me, and OH BOY, the Devourer of Worlds did not disappoint! First, the box... the huge, huge box. Somehow, after seeing numerous reviews on Youtube and pictures online, I thought the box would be a tad smaller. Nope. This thing is the size of a new TV box! And the art on it is gorgeous! A drawing of Galactus and his heralds on the front, the sides have Jack Kirby style art, and the back can be used as a diorama. Unboxing it is an experience on its own, with Galactus and the figures on the side... Fun! This is your first glimpse at this gigantic toy! Since Galactus didn't fit AT ALL in my usual space for photography, I took pics on the floor. Galactus comes with a ton of accessories, which were unlocked during the Haslab campaign: 2 different mouth-pieces, a Silver Surfer figure with 2 extra pairs of hands and a stand that can be attached on Galactus' hand, a Frankie Raye (Nova) figure, also with 2 extra pairs of hands and a stand that can be attached to Galactus' hand, a figure of Morg with his battle axe, and a Doctor Doom head for Galactus (whichwas the last unlockable tier). This figure is a marvel of toy engineering (no pun intended). The sculpt looks amazing, the paint apps are great, and the articulations do oh, so many clicks (ratchet joints all around). This is an imposing figure, to say the least, and quite heavy too. The several options for the head are great, even if I imagine that most collectors will display him either with the basic one of the angry mouth, since that's the most iconic way he has been drawn in comic books. The hands with all the fingers articulated separately are done beautifully. I usually hate figures with articulated hands, but this one just works. The heralds figures are a great addition to the set, even if Galactus alone was already good enough. I did not have a Silver Surfer so I'm happy to get one with Galactus, and Nova and Morg are fantastic figures. The cons? Okay, the articulations are a bit rigid and I'm always a bit scared after each click, that either I broke something, or pinched my fingers really hard (it happened twice). His tunic prevents him from sitting down, but I didn't plan to sit him on anything anyway. Finally, the stands that attach to the hands are probably the thing I liked the less, since they are not super stable, and the figures falls down pretty easily. Plus, with the weight, they tend to make Big G fall forward a bit. If you manage to attach them in a way that they won't fall, then it's not an issue. More news at 11:00... To me, my Galactus!

  6. Since nobody seems to be willing to display their newly-arrived Hasbro Marvel Legends Haslab Galactus figure with the Doctor Doom head (which was the last unlockable tier, so clearly, giving a good or bad final unlockable tier doesn't really have any consequences on the backers), many collectors will be left with an extra Galactus Doctor Doom head lying around somewhere. So what to do with your purple hooded Latverian ruler head? ToyFarce is here to help! We gathered a team of experts to find out the several other uses that a Galactus Doctor Doom head could have, and here are the most useful ones! Tired of your doors hitting the wall? Use your good ol' pal Victor's head as a doorstop! Collecting toys and complaining online takes all your time, and you don't spend enough time with your family? Go outside and play catch with your Galactus Doctor Doom head! Your papers keep flying away on your desk anytime there is a draught coming from the window? Use the Galactus Doctor Doom head as a paperweight! Your neck and shoulders hurt from all that collecting? Use the head as a massage ball! Instant relief guaranteed! What other uses would you have for your extra Galactus Doctor Doom head? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... All will face the righteous punishment of Doom! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  7. The Hasbro Marvel Legends HasLab Engine of Vengeance still has 21 days to go, but so far, only 2 tiers were revealed: A gorgeous looking Mephisto as Tier 1, along with the Goblin Queen, Madelyne Pryor, which is actually Tier 0 rather than Tier 2 (She's a Tier 'PRYOR' to Tier 1, get it?). But with the number of backers growing steadily in the wrong direction, we thought we would reveal more tiers, in order to boost those sales! TIER 0,5: PANTS! Hold on to your pants for that one! We did not get the early bird special Robbie Reyes figures, but we eventually got Robbie Reyes' head and hood, so we can turn the Ghost Rider figure into Robbie anyway...sort of. What if one of the other tiers was Robbie's missing grey pants? TIER 2: FUZZY STEERING WHEEL COVER! A very important thing for a Ghost Rider is to make his ride his own. What better way than to add Robbie's favorite air-freshener, a cup holder, or even the unlockable from Tier 3: a fuzzy steering wheel cover! TIER 4: TRUMPET CAR HELLHORN! A ToyFarce classic. Every crowdfunded product should always have a trumpet tier. Comes with 3 pre-recorded car horn sounds. 'Nuff said. TIER 5: A TODDLER CAR SEAT! Sometimes, the family gets bigger and you'll need a baby car seat in order to be able to continue to fight crime, but also have your toddler safe and secure in the car. This toddler car seat is also fireproof. TIER 6: REUSABLE SHOPPING BAGS! With Hasbro already making efforts to reduce plastic waste by removing it from their packaging, another great step is adding reusable shopping bags in the trunk of your Engine of Vengeance, to be sure to always have one with you (... and forget it in the trunk of the car every single time). What would you want to see as an unlockable tier for the Haslab Engine of Vengeance? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... "Honk if parts fall off!" *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
