The Joy of Toys
Posted 05 February 2011 - 03:36 PM
Beast Wars man! LEGOS man! Those, I know I still have locked away somewhere. Most of my old shit is gone, I hope. I still have my Pokemon cards Those are like toys. All 151 Pokemon in a binder, along with some other random cards that were free. Man, I got them all! I'm still fucking proud of that. SRSLY
I do want those Halo megablox. Last time I was at Target, they didn't have the sets I want, so I never bothered. But, I might have to order them. I dunno. What spending money I have has sort of been designated to booze.

But no, I don't have any of those sorts of toys laying around....or even at my apartment I think. I dunno, I personally don't have a huge interest in statues or anything of the sort. Toys are meant to be played with, and the only time I get to "play" is pretty much dedicated to videogames or going to parties

And I still have a majority of my Yu-Gi-Oh cards, and a few Pokémon cards.

I also have a decent selection of DnD miniatures. Not enough variety to do any adventure, but they're all dungeon-staples. Like, a forest encounter would be hard to structure, but I have a lot of undead, insects, spiders, and flame monsters. Enough to make a threatening underground journey.

Some cool stuff in LEGO, Transformers, Halo, Square Enix, kind of what you'd expect. But a kind of big surprise is Valve okay'd some TF2 action figures.
With interchangeable weapons.
And collectible hats.
I'm totally angry/happy/surprised at that.
Transformers is making some LEGO-compatible building blocks based on Transformers. Both minifigs and actual transforming vehicles you build. Kind of an interesting move, considering they could have just given Megablocks the OK to do it with their talented manufacturers.
Also last week was a toy convention in Japan, or something, and Figma unveiled some neat-o torpedo Drossel stuff. Not sure if anyone here watches Disney's Fireball.
Also, D-Arts (I think) is doing even more Digimon figures, namely my favorite, Blackwargreymon (which is what Skullgreymon digivolves to). And he looks beautiful. My girl's favorite digimon, too. Gallantmon and Omnimon (complete with bitching accessories).
Also forgot to mention the series 2 line of Mass Effect 2 toys is canceled. I guess DC Direct (or whomever is the manufacturer) delayed series 1 just one too many times and Bioware is done dealing with their unprofessional behavior in production. Personally, I thought the Dragon Age toys were poorly designed as well.
I guess fans are hoping Bioware will go with a different company and try again with Mass Effect 3, but for now I wouldn't be surprised to see no toys come out.

I sort of want a Skirmisher, but maybe after they come out with the version with the mini arm shield/weapons.
My Halo toys are Master Chief (w/ Guitar Hero controller) and Grifball.

And yeah, the Skimisher one is pretty bad-ass. I'm pretty hyped for the newest series that's coming out this year myself. Halo CE Chief (lawl polygons) and the Banshee are awesome.
