  • Marvel Legends Spider-Man Iron Spider Helmet Available for Preorder

    It’s a great time to be a Marvel collector, perhaps the best time in the history of the company. Hasbro has taken absolutely excellent care of the Marvel license, particularly when it comes to the higher-end Legend Series. Spider-Man is finally getting an Endgame Legends Series mask release by way of the Marvel Legends Series Iron Spider electronic helmet.

    The Marvel Legends series masks and helmets are pretty excellent and the Iron Spider helmet looks like it’s no exception. The helmet has “glowing LED eyes that glow red and blue in 6 different light settings,” as well as the quality sculpt and paint the Legends Series line is known for.

    You can preorder it now and it has an expected March 1, 2022 release date, so there’s plenty of time to make up your mind if you’re on the fence about it.

    Garbage Pail Kids x WWE Superstars Available Now at Walmart

    It’s difficult to overstate how massively popular Garbage Pail Kids and professional wrestling were in the 1980s. The GPK license, originally a send-up of the Cabbage Patch Kids craze of the early ’80s, has long outlived its source material. The WWE is now the biggest wrestling property on Earth, but it was the 1980s when it really came into its own and broke out into popular culture.

    Walmart is carrying a set of exclusive crossover figures merging these two titanic 1980s (and beyond) properties into one collectible line. I, for one, already added the Macho Man figure “Savage Randy” to my cart and will be checking out as soon as I’m done writing this.

    If you buy at least three of these figures, you’ll qualify for free shipping, but good luck trying to figure out which three to get. I’m personally a fan of these weird designs, since I grew up with the gross Garbage Pail Kids aesthetic.

    The figures should tide you over until WWE 2K22 releases in March, and if it turns out to be a disappointment like the last few games… well, at least you have those weird figures on your shelf.

    Hasbro Announces Next Transformers HasLab Project: Victory Saber

    The next Transformers HasLab project from Hasbro is Victory Saber, an absolutely massive new figure that will come to production only if enough backers support it before its campaign end date on October 11 of this year.

    Check out the prototype images of Victory Saber in the gallery below:

    According to Hasbro, Victory Saber includes the following:

    • 1-inch Brain of Courage Brainmaster figure
    • 5-inch Autobot Saber figure
    • 5-inch V-Star jet
    • 5-inch Victory Leo figure
    • Sword of Justice accessory

    If you’re unfamiliar with Victory Saber, he’s the supreme Autobot leader in the anime Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers: Victory, which differs from the Transformers lore you might be more familiar with. According to Hasbro, should this figure reach its backing goal, it will mark the “first time in 30 years” Japanese canon has been introduced “into the Transformers line.”

    The HasLab line has been used to great effect in the past to bring us the Mandalorian’s Razor Crest and perhaps the coolest HasLab creation of all, the massive HasLab Unicron figure.

    If you’re keen to see Victory Saber in production, you can back the project now at Hasbro Pulse for $179.99.
