In mid-July, Hasbro launched a crowdfunding campaign seeking $575 from 8,000 backers each to produce a two-foot-tall action figure of Transformers: The Movie villain Unicron.

Marvel's Grandmaster Figure Perfectly Captures Jeff Goldblum's Goofy Charm

Marvel's Grandmaster Figure Perfectly Captures Jeff Goldblum's Goofy Charm

Forget Ian Malcom from Jurassic Park or Independence Day’s David Levison with his sweet-ass grappling hook and energy shield. Now there’s a superior Jeff Goldblum action figure in the form of Marvel’s gleefully grinning Grandmaster from Thor: Ragnarok.

Shame on Marvel and Hasbro for making me wait so long for a physical representation of one of Goldblum’s most Goldblum-iest roles. His...

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...

Hasbro Wants To Make A 2-Foot-Tall, $575 Transformers Unicron Toy

Hasbro Wants To Make A 2-Foot-Tall, $575 Transformers Unicron Toy

The biggest threat in the Transformers multiverse is Unicron, the planet-sized world eater who debuted in 1986’s animated Transformers: The Movie. Despite his popularity among fans, Unicron has never gotten a toy befitting his stature. The 27-inch-tall Transformers: War for Cybertron Unicron being crowdfunded via Hasbro’s HasLab could change that.

Hasbro has attempted to make several Unicron...

Three Of The Most Obscure Transformers Have Been Modernized For 2019

Three Of The Most Obscure Transformers Have Been Modernized For 2019

The Firecons are far from the best-known Transformers ever made. Released in 1988, the little robots that turned into spark-spitting monsters were nobody’s Optimus Prime, Megatron or Omega Supreme. And now, suddenly, 31 years later, they’re making a comeback.

Flamefeather, Cindersaur and Sparkstalker are returning in remade form in the upcoming Siege expansion to the Transformers Trading Card...

Hasbro's Made Some Fine Overwatch Action Figures, Except For Reaper

Hasbro’s Overwatch Ultimates action figure line, which is hitting store shelves as we speak, gives fans of Blizzard’s hero shooter a less-expensive alternative to thosehot, Japanese Figma toys . Let’s take a look at the first wave, including Pharah, Mercy, Tracer, Lucio, Ana, Soldier 76, Sombra, a very large Reinhardt, and a sad, maskless Reaper.

I do not play Overwatch that often, but I adore...

Throughout the years, the Transformers series has made a lot of things transform into robots. Cars, airplanes, tape decks, animals, and more have sprouted heads and limbs accompanied by the signature transforming sound. So why not everyday household items, sporting goods, and food? Hasbro’s...

The New Power Rangers Fighting Game Could Use A Lot More Power Rangers 

The New Power Rangers Fighting Game Could Use A Lot More Power Rangers 

The colorful, spandex-clad martial artists of Power Rangers are the perfect subject for a basic but enjoyable three-on-three fighting game like Battle for the Grid. But with 26 seasons of television featuring more than 140 different heroes, the starting roster should at least be in the double digits, and not nine.

I was super excited whenPower Rangers: Battle for the Grid was announced for the...

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.

As Transformers toy gimmicks go,...

It Takes Six Transformers Trading Cards To Build Devastator

It Takes Six Transformers Trading Cards To Build Devastator

Predaking ? Weak. Superion ? Bah. Before the Autobots and Decepticons started transforming teams of five into one giant robot, there were the Constructicons, six construction vehicle robots who combined into the mighty Devastator. The original gestalt is a “towering warrior” in the Transformers Trading Card Game’s upcoming Rise of the Combiners expansion.

The Rise of the Combiners expansion,...

Five Transformers Trading Cards Combine To Form Predaking

Five Transformers Trading Cards Combine To Form Predaking

First, the official Transformers Trading Card Game gave us extra-large character cards. Then a super-sized Metroplex. Now, in the grand tradition of Yu-Gi-Oh’s Exodia the Forbidden One, the next Transformers Trading Card Game expansion gives us combiners—five cards creating one giant robot.

Predaking is just one of six sets of combiners featured in the “Rise of the Combiners” expansion pack,...

The Transformers Trading Card Game's Metroplex Is As Big As My Face

Just as I was getting used to having hero cards two times the size of the average trading card game, Hasbro releases the Metroplex deck, featuring a card as large as my face. No card should be as big as my face.

In a normal round of the recently-releasedTransformers card game , two players pick a pair of oversized character cards to do battle, using normal-size cards to enhance attack and...

Secret Warriors Dolls Bring Marvel Characters To A New Audience

Two years ago DC and Mattel launched the DC Super Hero Girls toy line , bringing comic book characters to the woefully underserved audience of young women. Now Marvel and Hasbro follow suit with Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors, a line of dolls that highlights the publisher’s diverse roster of young adult heroes, including the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.

Comic books are for everybody, and Marvel...

The New Transformers Trading Card Game Is Kind Of Magical

Giant transforming robots deserve giant trading cards, and they get them in the new Transformers Trading Card Game. Hasbro tapped Wizards of the Coast to give the Autobots and Decepticons a new way to battle, and it’s slightly more than meets the eye.

It’s kind of a slow rollout for the Transformers Trading Card Game. There are no pre-built decks, and the card selection at launch is pretty...
