Hasbro's New Overwatch Figure Shows Off Reinhardt's Pretty Face

Hasbro's New Overwatch Figure Shows Off Reinhardt's Pretty Face

Out of all the characters recreated in plastic for Hasbro’s first wave of Overwatch action figures , the hands-down, hammers-up best is the super-sized Reinhardt with his gorgeous mech suit and dinner plate-sized shield. The only way it could be better would be if we could see the old man’s pretty face. Oh hi there, San Diego Comic-Con Reinhardt Bundswehr version.

Hasbro hit the jackpot when...

While I’ve been loving Hasbro’s Transformers Cyberverse animated series on YouTube, the simplistic tie-in toy line, aimed at younger fans, hasn’t caught my fancy. That could change later that year, when the Cyberverse Transformers get vehicles that turn into awesome add-on armor.

The first volume dealt with the formation of the universe and the rise of ancient races. The second spent a lot of time on the other side of the Dark Portal, futzing about with orcs,...

Meet Fiesta, The Undead Skylander With His Own Mariachi Band

Meet Fiesta, The Undead <i>Skylander</i> With His Own Mariachi Band

With attacks that spawn adorable skeletal bandmates and a ride that was once his coffin-shaped kids bed, Skylanders: Superchargers Fiesta is an unliving, unbreathing example of why I love this stupid series.

The creativity of the toy designs is one of the key reasons I keep coming back to Skylanders year after year, and second-greatest weapon Activision has in the war against almost every...

Microsoft Again Stretches Definition Of 'Exclusive'

Microsoft Again Stretches Definition Of 'Exclusive'

One of the most annoying trends in video games is the word “exclusive,” which perhaps once meant “limited” or “restricted” but now, thanks to Microsoft and Sony, means absolutely nothing. Today’s big exclusive is PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Which probably isn’t an exclusive.

At the Xbox showcase during E3 in June, Microsoft announced that the popular battle royale shooter would...
