    Especially in this day and age with companies finally acknowledging that action figures are becoming an adult-driven industry, there is just too much. It’s not as bad if you focus on one franchise. If you’re a Joe fan, there’s next to nothing. Even when stuff is available, it’s literally a tiny amount. MOTU has the second least amount of collectibles right now, but even it is shipping $350 worth of figures this month in a single scale. Now Star Wars has never been a slouch. However, even with 12 to 13 $20 figures coming out for the anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, it’s still no match for Transformers. With the proliferation of 3rd party Masterpiece scale, now Legends scale figures, in addition to very active retail lines, there are literally hundreds of figures on the market at any one time. This even includes amazing non-transforming figures such as those from 3A.

    Right before 2020, the biggest news for Transformers Masterpiece is going to be a throw-back to mostly old school trains. Probably the most popular thing to come out of our community in 2019 is The Child, The Asset, or most commonly, yet incorrectly known as Baby Yoda. However, Hasbro/Lucasfilm was not on their game and we won’t have anything in our hands until 2020. Masters is on track to have a huge coming year. Two cartoons, a movie, and a new line of figures. However, all we are getting are teases. While we’ll be getting a new Joe movie next year, we’ll have to wait another couple of years for the first Joe amusement park.

    Not often a statue makes into this part of the post, but if you feel like indulging, the new Rancor statue from Sideshow is a good start. Something you still have a chance to splurge on is Super7’s Snake Mountain. The new video shows just how amazing this piece is. If the Studio Series Devastator is not doing it for you, maybe a 3rd Party, $800 version, will satiate you. While probably on the opposite end of indulging since Evergreen Line usually means low-budget, but at least Joe has action figure news.

    Let’s see how quickly we can do this. Eighteen bucks is too much for a 5 PoA figure, even a Transformer, just saying. The Super7 Snake Mountain is too big, just saying. The Mandalorian is as amazing as everyone is saying, ask Lotus, just saying. As much as I actually liked the first two Joe movies, rebooting with Snake Eyes is probably not a bad idea, just saying.

    The “big” news this time around was the TFCon 3rd Party panel. However, I think Matthew “Deluxe” Baldwin sums it up well with his latest t-shirt offering. Hasbro shows off its latest level of packaging QC, with multiple errors of perhaps the most popular proper noun in toy history. While not a fail, more so a WTF, Super7 comes out of nowhere with Deluxe (i.e. $45) Japanese Wrestling figures. Lastly, while maybe not the greatest fail, just not what it could have been, is NECA and their street team/ambassador program.

    All right, enough bitching about my life lets bitch about toys. The only thing to bitch about in regard to Ed’s Galaxy Edge toy run, is the sheer amount of stuff. I can’t wait until our visit next year. I bitch plenty about these Masters of the Universe skate decks from Super7. When it comes to G.I. Joe joining the Transformers Earth Wars game the only reason to bitch is the fact that it is the only news for Joe. Probably the most positive news out of this show is the possibility of getting a new Raiden toy from Takara Tomy. Who doesn’t love a cool train or six?
