SDCC: Power Rangers

18 07 2013

So yeah I watched Power Rangers when I was a child. I was in the 2nd grade when the series began watched faithfully all the way through “Time Force” saw fragments of “Wild Force” skipped “Ninja Storm” watched most of “Dino Thunder” all of “SPD” hated “Mystic Force” and largely ignored the last 3 going on 4 incarnations of the franchise. Mainly because to me the original Might Morphin Powers Rangers stays with me today as the best team. With some of the best Zords and best enemies. So at SDCC celebrating its 20 years(and a month later at the Morphi-Con convention) publisher Papercutz has announced a new series of graphic novels featuring the original team. Each graphic novel will serve as a “lost episode,” with the first volume taking place before the debut of Tommy as the Green Ranger and the arrival of Lord Zed. This first volume will be written by Stefan Petrucha and illustrated by PH Marcondes, and is slated to be released in May 2014.

I REALLY Want This Super Robot Chogokin Action Figure…

28 06 2012

http://chucksanimeshrine.com/catalog/images/4543112762740b.jpg

I very much enjoy Power Rangers. When I was younger, I remember playing with the various Megazords and wishing that they did more than just do the Monkey in terms of articulation. But now, thanks to the creators of the Super Robot Chogokin line of figures, we soon will have what many fans have always wanted! The figure is due out in September, around the same time as the 20th anniversary of the original Power Rangers television show. It will be die-cast and will include sword, shield, and shoulder-mounted cannons. It will also have effects that you can put on the sword and crest of the Megazord to reenact attacks. What this Megazord lacks in combining, it makes up for in overall badassery. Look for this bad boy to set you back around 60 bucks.

Skylanders Giants Trailer is… addicting. Plus, News!

7 06 2012

With Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure making money hand-over-fist… it’s no surprise that Activision is jumping back in like a pig in mud. The first game was delightfully addictive (I… don’t have all 37 characters or anything…) and featured a fun experience for both child and man-child. With such a success, it’s good to see that Activision and Toys For Bob (The company responsible for the figurines) is expanding on the franchise in many different ways. Hit the jump to see more what’s to be expected!

Oh, also… there is a series of videos exclusive to the Skylander’s Facebook page breaking down some of the new additions!

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Pre-Order Incentives!

2 06 2012

opt

As with most video games, pre-ordering is a way to not only guarantee yourself a copy of the latest title, but also secures a perk in doing so. August’s Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is no different. Two retailers are offering pre-order bonuses, and I personally feel it’s a little one-sided. Amazon.com is getting a single-player Generation 2 skin of Brutus, while Gamestop is offering a Generation 1 skin of Optimus Prime for single-player and Multi-player along with two guns: Megatron’s Blaster and Shockwave’s Cannon. Now, as someone who usually buys from Amazon.com (flashes Amazon credit card) I must say I think I’m actually going to break down and pre-order at Gamestop this time around. I feel that Optimus this go-round looks a little too top-heavy for me, and c’mon… it’s G1 Optimus Prime! Plus, you can use the skin in multi-player as well. Nothing against G2 Bruticus, of course. It’s a great homage to the toy that I don’t think anyone expected. It just goes to show the detail and care that High Moon is putting into this franchise.

I hope that this means we will get other g1/g2/etc-style skins for other characters as DLC. Hit the jump for two more pics of G1 Optimus Prime in-game!

Popular Pop Vinyl Figures Continue with Plants Vs. Zombies!

2 06 2012

The company behind the Pop! Vinyl figure series, Funko, is tightening it’s iron-clad grasp on adorable chibi-style pop-culture icons via it’s next line of figures from Plants vs. Zombies. The Pop! series already includes pop-culture giants like Disney, Marvel, The Beatles, Notorious B.I.G., Beetlejuice, and KISS -To name a few. The figures follow the same basic format, but the art design for the figures add flair and adowableness. I consider them to be great collector’s items especially given their $9.99 MSRP. With few videogame characters available currently, I hope that the release of the PvZ line in early July will see more videogame mascots following suite; C’mon Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil figures!

Hit the jump to see the rest of the figures in the first wave!

Purchase This Andrew Ryan Limited Edition Figure… Would You Kindly?

30 05 2012

Bioshock is awesome. Andrew Ryan, one of the game’s antagonists and creator of the “free” underwater city of Rapture, is also awesome -One of the greatest videogame villains of all time. Now, Irrational Games gives fans of the series a chance to own a piece of Rapture by releasing an Andrew Ryan action figure limited to just 200 pieces for 100 dollars. I myself am very close to obeying…
