Unable to wait for its nebulous spring release in the United States, I went undercover as a Canadian to get my hands on the massive robot battles of Transformers: Forged to Fight. It was worth it.
My photoshoot of Hasbro’s Marvel Legends 12-inch Deadpool figure might have gotten away from me, but the point stands—Hasbro has really gotten a handle on 12-inch figures.
The results of January’s Monopoly Token Madness fan vote are in. Three new game pieces will be included in the next generation of the classic board game this fall, at the cost of a trio of tokens that have been with the game since the very beginning.
Coming this September to whichever stores will have it, Dropmix is a collaboration between toy maker Hasbro and music game masters Harmonix that sees players using cards placed on a game board to create unique mixes of licensed music via connected mobile device. Huh.
Many people have pinged me asking what Hasbro is showing for Yo-Kai Watch at Toy Fair. We’ll have to wait until we’re closer to season three to see new toys, but they did have connectable Wibble Wobble figures, as mimicked here by the best demo guy ever, Eric. Eric Von Demoguy.
I swore I wouldn’t fall in love with an animatronic pet at Toy Fair this year. Dammit, Hasbro.
Earlier this month a Transformer near and dear to my heart faced off against Ultra Magnus, Star Saber and Deathsaurus in a fan vote for who would be the next ‘bot to wield the Matrix of Leadership. Move over, Optimus Prime. It’s Optimus Primal’s time.
Mobile developer Kabam and Hasbro roll out a new trailer for their upcoming fighting game at Toy Fair 2017 today, demonstrating just how deep and obscure the roster for Transformers: Forged to Fight is going to get. How many do you recognize?
In late 2015, Hasbro asked Transformers fans to choose from one of three massive classic characters to update for the modern age. Decepticon city Trypticon beat our Omega Supreme and Scorponok, and now we have our first look at the biggest official Decepticon toy ever.
While we’ll have to wait until World Monopoly Day on March 19 to find out which eight game tokens fans voted to include in new editions of the game, one classic player piece has already bit the dust. Say goodbye to the thimble.
The 2017 New York Toy Fair starts this weekend, and as we prepare to venture into its halls and check out the toys coming out over the next year, we’re looking at some of the fun stuff you can get right now. Stuff like the latest Marvel Legends build-a-figure series, starring some of the greatest heroes in Guardians…
2017 is a huge year for Star Wars—not only is The Last Jedi on the way, not only has it been 20 years since the special editions changed the saga and fandom forever, but it’s also the entire franchise’s 40th birthday. That means, naturally, that there’s going to be some sweet Star Wars merch to celebrate, and we’ve…
First round results for Hasbro’s “Power of the Primes” Transformers fan vote are in, narrowing down the next keeper of the Matrix of Leadership to four candidates: the Japanese one, the obvious one, Monkey Joe and Unknown (though secretly Deathsaurus) Evil. If only they held debates.
Normally it’s the Matrix of Leadership that determines which Transformer takes up the Prime mantle, but this year Hasbro’s doing things a little differently. Fans are voting to see which Autobot, Decepticon or unknown evil gets the next Optimus-style upgrade.
In 2013, fans voted to replace Monopoly’s classic iron token with a cat. Now Hasbro is prepared to replace the entire token lineup based on the whims of internet voters. What hope do wheelbarrow and thimble have in the face of computer, t-rex and helicopter?
When mobile developer Kabam announced robot battler Transformers: Forged To Fight earlier this month, I assumed it was little more than a reskin of popular mobile fighter Marvel: Contest of Champions. With features like ranged attacks and 3D movement, it’s more like an evolution.
The first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight went up last night, giving fans a first look at the flashy nonsense that will make Michael Bay, Hasbro and Paramount a ton of money next year. Let’s see what knowledge we can glean from those explosive 140 seconds.
