165 – March 11th: Rebandaged

 

The crew has been a bit banged up, but that does not compare to what’s been happening to their toys! Not even the Man of Steel is immune to the outbreak. Which figures actually made it out without a scratch? Tune in to find out!

LISTENER QUESTION: Kenneth Yu
Hallo!

Heard you guys wanted more questions or lists of what we’re looking forward to in 2017, so I’m answering the call =)

Question: Okay, what announcements are YOU guys looking forward to? Specifically, what are the goofiest, long-shottiest wishes you guys have that you think could still happen anyway?

My List (Both logical and goofy):

1) More confirmation on DC Collectibles’ DC Films. There’s been a lot of talk swirling around about how the releases after Supes and ArmorBats may be cancelled. I hope they’re not true, as I still badly need normal Batman and Wonder Woman from that line. This line isn’t perfect, but with Figuarts articulation in the DC Scale, it scratches a very severe itch for me.

2) A properly articulated, swappable-armor line built around Injustice 2. A core element of that game is being able to customise your superhero’s outfit. Mattel already has existing lines with armor-swap gimmicks, including their six-inch Halo line, and Mega Bloks Halo, Destiny and Call of Duty. I know Mattel is a big time screw up, and I usually hate them with a vengeance, but hope springs eternal.

3) An articulated Cthulhu. I have been asking the universe for this for YEARS, now. He’s public-domain, and every monster collector will want him, for Godzilla or Gipsy Danger to beat up. Cmon, NECA. Cmon, Monsterarts. COME ON, ANYONE.

4) This one’s pretty much locked. I want SH Figuarts’ BvS line. With how cool the Dark Knight looks,  the Figuarts should be a no-brainer. I’ve held off on Figuarts a bit recently, because I prefer figures in a slightly larger scale, but I may have to go all on on their BvS offerings.

5) An official Hasbro Grimlock, based on the IDW design. His current comic appearance seems to be a combo of the FOC and TFA looks, with IDW touches that I’ve always loved, like the teeth on his robot-mode faceplate. I badly need that thing in toy form. (But frankly, I’d settle for any Neo-G1 / Henkei take on Grimlock at this point.)

6) Trypticon.

7) Speaking of Dinos, how about we get a Dino Riders revival? Will this be the year? Please?

8) More Pokemon from SH Figuarts. I know Ash is incoming, and favourites like Mewtwo, Lucario and Charizard have been made, but there are a ton of awesome designs in that series, and I’d love to see SHF do more of them. (Also, Mewtwo deserves a re-release or rework.)

Best of 2016 from Sam Murdoch!

  • Best Figure: Thundercats Classics Lion-O (great to have this guy in scale with my MOTUC)
  • Best Vehicle: Masters of the Universe Classics Roton (great update to an iconic MOTU vehicle, great sculpt, comes with a new figure; the Skelcon, still has its action feature of the spinning blade, comes with an articulated flight stand)
  • Best Robot: Titans Return Soundwave (my fave TF character ever and a nice new big version of him)
  • Best Line: Four Horsemen’s Mythic Legions (great new 6″ line from the 4H that deals with my fave genre; sword and sorcery, great sculpts, articulation, paint, great range of characters: so far there’s dwarves, knights, skeletons, orcs, evil knights, a vampire
  • Best old toy: So last spring, I believe in March, I went to a fairly large toy show called the Columbus Toy Show, it’s put on twice a year and me and some of the Star Joes guys try to go to at least one of them, anyways I picked up the Hasbro WWF Roddy Piper, the showtime Beetlejuice from Kenner and Toxie from the Toxic Crusaders toy line, all three are on card and I’m choosing all 3, cuz they’re all equally great and crazy 90s goodness, all three cards and bubbles are very nice and they’re were all fairly cheap
  • Most Anticipated: series two of Mythic Legions (still waiting on giant Trolls which is still series one, series 2 will have Elves and more that still hasn’t been revealed)
  • And at that toy show I also bought this TMNT hockey player Leo, Leo is my fave turtle and ice hockey is my fave sport, I’ve played it all my life
