Since The Mandalorian was released close to Christmas last year, not many official toys of Baby Yoda (aka “The Child”) made it to market in time for the holidays. That’s all changing in 2020, and this might be the best one yet.
If you love the original Star Wars saga, you might remember the classic action figures that Kenner made back in the 1978. While Kenner is long gone, Hasbro has picked up the baton and created a new series of 3.75″
If you need another Avengers Endgame toy, and of course you do, make it this one. Hasbro has released the power gauntlet. This is not the Infinity Gauntlet. This is the one built by Tony Stark and used by Hulk to… (spoiler alert)… reverse Thanos’ snap.
If you think you’ve collected all of the Transformers toys, think again. There’s one Transformers toy that’s missing from your collection. That’s because the Transformers Generations Collaborative: Ghostbusters Mash-Up, Ecto-1 Ectotron Figure is not available yet.
But you can pre-order it now from GameStop – with shipping starting this July.
Growing up, all I wanted in the world for one of my birthdays was an Optimus Prime Transformer. I got it even though it was like $20 back then, which seemed like $100 today. Hasbro’s Transformers Masterpiece Edition MP-44 Optimus Prime (ver 3.0)
I haven’t played a game of Scrabble in years, but even if I did, I can’t see myself shelling out money for an official Scrabble keyboard. But if you are a super-fan of the classic word game, you will likely feel different and find this keyboard stunning.
The custom keycaps on Massdrop’s keyboard have the same color palette as an official Scrabble tile set and board, and also includes additional triple/double word/letter score keycaps you can swap in.
Did you know that the poop emoji is super popular right now? You probably noticed. There are poop emoji toys and plushes, toilet plungers, pool floats, and you can even buy chocolate that looks like the little turd.
Hasbro has unveiled HASLAB, which is their take on Kickstarter. The new crowdfunding program is starting with a huge and crazy toy. That would be a 4-foot long, 14 pound, detailed recreation of Jabba’s Sail Barge from Return of the Jedi.
Do you or your kids love Transformers? How about Magic The Gathering? Or My Little Pony? Well, you’re in luck, because this year, Hasbro is kicking off their first ever HASCON – a family-friendly convention for fans of the company’s many awesome toys and games.
Hasbro has unveiled the biggest Decepticon action figure it’s ever made. It’s called the Trypticon T-Rex, and it is downright huge. It measures about 20″ tall in Dino mode and is the largest figure in the 2017 Titans Return universe.
Growing up, I thought the dinosaur Transformers were incredibly lame, all I wanted were cars or jets – but this one is pretty cool.
Growing up, my grandmother was big into sewing. Typically she’d sit on the couch making some sort of clothing or needlepoint project, and she would always be wearing a thimble to keep from stabbing herself. That’s the only reason I even know what a thimble is.
Thanks to the Internet, it’s much easier for fan art to go viral and reach not just content creators but other fans as well. Recognizing that 3D printing can help turn those fan-made ideas into real goods, Hasbro is working with Shapeways to release SuperFanArt, a line of toys made by My Little Pony fans for fellow fans.
SuperFanArt currently has five artists, who already have eight figurines for sale.
The Transformers turn 30 this year. Fortunately, we don’t just have Michael Bay’s upcoming movie to mark the occasion. Hasbro will also be releasing a tongue-in-cheek homage to its money-printing toy line’s roots. The Transformers 30th Anniversary Tour Edition casts some of the robots in a glam metal band called Knights of Unicron.
The band features Optimus Prime and Soundwave on vocals, Megatron on guitar (with Laserbeak as the guitar) and Smooth Jazz (Jazz?)
