ThreeA will be making Star Wars figures. Casually announced in the latest
issue of ThreeA's H3adlines, the line might be called Star Wars Alternate. An
official announcement will be coming. The picture below is not of the actual
figures. Maybe. ThreeA previously showed off Tomorrow
concepts last year, but who knows if the actual Star Wars Alternate figures
will look like that or be something else. I'm hoping for something with more
armor than the Tracksuit Trooper. Regardless, this is very cool news
considering Ashley Wood has been wanting to make his own Star Wars figures for
a long time now.
This might not be what
ThreeA's Star Wars figures will look like.
Mattel showed off a couple of the yet unseen figures in their Masters of the
Universe 200X mini-subscription:
King Chooblah and
Queen Grayskull. Both of these figures look amazing and Chooblah has so
much new tooling. I'm thinking of actually subscribing for this now.
People who like to
complain about MOTU can't complain too much about all the new tooling
and details in Chooblah.
Cobra Commander received the key to the city of Springfield, Illinois. This is
awesome because Springfield has been secretly run by Cobra in the cartoon
and comics. This was really for the
G.I. Joe Convention happening April 9th - 12th in the city. This is one of
those times I wish I was still living in the mid-west.
Wonder Woman's new
outfit, which is a full body costume. The retractable daggers are kind of
neat and might be giving the ol' gal some new tricks. Overall, it looks pretty
good... except for the big red V on her lady parts. Subtle, DC. Subtle.
Now you can't help but
stare at Wonder Woman's big red V, can you?
The Konami Style store exclusive Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Premium Edition includes
a 1:1 scale Snake bionic arm replica. It's completely poseable, can hold
things like a real hand, and is really
awesome looking. The normal Collector's Edition being sold in the U.S. has a
smaller version, but it's much more affordable, so you get what you can. The
regular Collector's Edition also randomly went up at a couple retailers with the PS4 version selling out in
a few hours. Hopefully other retailers will get the Collector's Edition so more
fans can get it.
Söldner-X 2: Final Prototype is hitting the Vita on March 17th. I love this game and
am glad to see it on another platform.
Since Mortal Kombat had Freddy, it only makes sense that
Mortal Kombat X will get Jason Voorhees as a DLC character. How long until
we see Freddy Vs. Jason in a NeatherRealm fighting game now? Oh, and if you want to watch almost 7-minutes of
Mortal Kombat X's story then
watch this video. I'll wait until the game comes out.
The director of Bayonetta 2, Yusuke Hashimoto, wants to
make a Spider-Gwen
game. I know nothing of Spider-Gwen other than that it seems everyone Peter
Parker knows seems to get spider powers these days. Also, the game would
probably rock if he made it.
Onechanbara Z2 Chaos is hitting North American PS4s and will have a
limited Banana Split edition including a soundtrack CD softcover art book, and
inappropriately fruity DLC.
The next Hyperdimension Neptunia game will be a
cross-over with Sega Hard Girls. It's called Hyperdimensional War Neptunia VS
Sega Hard Girls: Dream Combing Special.
This was probably inevitable. Also, that is a really
No surprise here, but
Titanfall 2 will be multi-platform, arriving on Xbox One, PC, and PS4. I
hope it at least has a story mode. That's the main reason I never bought the
Mark Hamill is
reprising his role as The Trickster in the Flash series. What's cool is that it
references his original appearance in CBS' The Flash, making his appearance,
at least, part of the new canon. Much trickery.
Mark Hamill will be
back, but what about that car?
The first stand-alone Star Wars film will be called
Rogue One. The film will be directed by Gareth Edwards and the first
person to be cast is Felicity Jones. Rogue One could have something to do with
Rogue Squadron, but since Disney took out all expanded universe stories out of
Star Wars canon it could turn out to be something completely different.
