Bits and Bobs 20110513

There's quite a few things that has caught my attention recently, and a lot of them are old news, but I thought I'd make a list.

I saw that Arkvander from Mostly Transformers Redux was talking about BotCon and so I asked him about the exclusives.  He pointed out that the exclusives this year was a set of TFA Stunticons.  Ack!  The first year that we will be getting TFA BonCon exclusives.  Granted, these are mostly repaints with new heads, but they actually do look awesome.  Ah, how I wish I was going to BotCon.

And while I'm talking about Transformers, pictures of the next Masterpiece - Optimus Prime - has been released.  It's not just any optimus prime, it's a prime with a trailer that could fit Prim himself within the trailer if the pictures are to be believed.  Wow.  More pictures at Kapow toys.

And while I'm talking about Japanese toys, Revoltech has also shown pictures of Mike and Sully.  The sculptwork looks amazing and there's a huge number of joints seen from the pictures.  As usual, pictures can be seen at Kaiyodo's online store.

Meanwhile, Kaiyodo's rival Bandai has sent out high res pictures of the upcoming Thundercats line to a number of online sites.  It includes views of the vehicles, playsets and role-play items.  Some of the pictures are awesome and captures the spirit of the action features of the toy.  Others, especially those with the grumpy kid, are icky.  Head over to view them at Poe's if you haven't already seen them.

Matty has also shown pictures of Man-E-Faces and Megator in the packages on their facebook page.  This includes their bios, which will generate some controversy regarding MEF's real name.  The pictures doesn't show the secret accessories with the respective figures though.

The Lego Pet store from the Modular House range should be hitting the stores right about now.  This is one of my most anticipated Lego sets for this year.  To close the circle, in this BaB, check out Arkvander's review of this set, which promises to be amazing.


  1. Thanks for the props! Hope you are able to get the Botcon set for a decent price, sometimes it can get crazy but I predict there will be no shortage of them on eBay.

  2. I won't lose sleep over it if I don't get it, but I'd like to get them since I'm a TFA fan and all.
