Toy Fair Tidbits and links to pics

wolverinepotheadA large amount of information was revealed at Toyfair. During the show I followed live tweets from several people but especially @generalsjoes of GeneralsJoes and @garygodsoe of the Coil Club, both from What’s on Joe mind.

Just a few quick notes

G.I.Joe, the Tomahawk is real baby! it’s a retool from the vintage and will be called the eagle hawk, comes with a liftticket, and all reports are that’s its great.

Saw some pics via Twiitter, Budo is classic historical samurai, stormshadow is amazing, as is CC but the Tomahawk is mind blowing.  Rotors fold back, and this thing looks big.

New Wave 3 of the movie line has been rearranged to include more “Ultimates” like movie flint, sunbow CC and Sunbow stormshadow. Also included are a new Budo, Kwinn and Data Viper.

Transformers: A new 125.00 Titan class metroplex based on the recent video game is coming. 30th Annivary Tfs, including springer!

Star Wars, Star Wars Black series also has 3 3/4 ” figures, TRU has an exclusive X-wing coming,

Marvel, New wolverine Legends line announced, a 3 3/4 ” avengers assemble line based on the new cartoon has been announced, 10 figures for the whole year,  New MU and ML announced as well as a Thor movie line.

wish I could have been there this year, I will be at Joe Con in a few months and will cover that. but for this event, I suggest checking out the following sites for pictures, and of course sticking around on our Forums to talk about it.

Star Wars figures go 6″ Scale

6in_Luke_helmet_blastermany have desired this scale for Star Wars (or Joe for that matter) for a long time. Well it’s here in the form of Star Wars, the Black Series.  They will be priced at 19.99 and will be out in early to mid August. The first wave consists of four characters, Luke here, Darth maul, R2-D2, and a sandtrooper.

As always for discussion hit up the forums.

A New Star Wars Spinoff

Ign has revealed, then updated information about a new Star Wars movie, and not episode VII

starwarslogoEarly reports stated that Zack Synder (300, Watchman) would be directing a spin off film set in the Star wars universe, but now it is being denied. When the summary involved Jedi and sith based interpretation of old Samurai’s, set after  Episode VI, I couldn’t help be wonder how? There are no Jedi and Sith left. of course this could be well after the events of the original trilogy and mirror the books in which Luke has rebuilt the Jedi, time will tell if the rumors are true, and how the details fit with the movie canon. . But it would seem Disney has the power and the will to push Star Wars into the future with new content and continue it’s role as a power house franchise. time will tell if new installments will please more fans than the prequels.
