Transformers Bumblebee Movie Toys Checklist

Hasbro Transformers Bumblebee Movie Toys
If you are a die hard Transformers fan, you've probably had a good look at all there is to see from Hasbro's Bumblebee movie toy line. For me, it's alllll new! And we're willing to bet it's new to a lot of you as well. That being the case, let's check out the newest toys hitting retail any day now, most of which featuring our favorite, outgoing yellow autobot!

We'll add to this as more images come our way, but here's what we've got for now...

The overall gimmick is "Energon Igniters" which works with a semi translucent energon block that comes with most figures. You pop the block into the vehicle and it acts as an "engine" for the car, allowing it to take off.  Several categories will be available. We've listed them small to large...

Hasbro Show Off their First Power Rangers Action Figure

Hasbro Power Rangers Action Figures
It's easy to forget that Hasbro are now the toy masters of Saban's Power Rangers when you have Star Wars, Marvel Comics and Movies, Transformers and all the other toy lines they crank out at a brisk pace to cloud your mind and devour your wallet. In truth, you really should be excited for the Power Rangers takeover...at least if you are an adult collector! You see, in the past, the PR toy line was approached like any popular kid's toy line in that it was packed with action features and gimmicks tying into the roleplay items, with everything screaming BUY IT ALL!! This is fine and good and it was more than a little successful for many years, but the underserved die-hard fans were out there,  growing older and forced to look to other companies to get their adult collector fix. Where was the unified scale? One size for humans, one for monsters, at the very least, would have gotten collectors excited. Beyond that, we've got likenesses to consider and articulation which, for a show featuring kids who do martial arts, should be top notch. Consequently, these happen to be the things Hasbro has been fine tuning in their Marvel Legends line and now, the transference will be something fantastic to watch...

WETA Expands Mini Epics Vinyl Figure Line with Battle Angel Alita, Planet of the Apes and District 9

WETA Mini Epics Vinyl Figures Battle Angel Alita
With an explosion of excited fans and a generous serving of subversive humour, Weta Workshop unveiled its first foray into the world of pop culture vinyls at San Diego Comic-Con 2017. The response to our merry band of Middle-earthlings – Frodo Baggins, Gollum, Gimli, Moria Orc and Uruk-hai Berserker – was immediate: WE WANT MORE MINI EPICS!

Which got us here at the Workshop thinking. What other EPIC worlds could we deliver to film fans and collectors of cool stuff across the globe?

Let’s start with the basics, we said.  We’re tackling the A-team: Apes, Aliens, and Angels! We’ve grown the MINI EPICS family to include not only more figures from The Lord of the Rings, but your favourite characters from Planet of the Apes, District 9, and Alita: Battle Angel – each figure as highly stylised as the next.
