Troy’s Toys, actually with toys

What’s this?! An article where I actually talk about the thing I was hired to do?! I too am surprised about this turn of events!

It’s been awhile, mostly because I’ve been a bit burnt out talking about toys (you can only talk about Batman figures on a weekly basis for so long), and because there was a lack of toys that caught my eye. That’s since changed, as we’ve received plentiful comics and videya game type toys in recently. Let’s start off with a few imports yes?

link_figma_02_thumbNintendo-Legend-of-Zelda-Skyward-Sword-Link-Figma-Action-Figure

First and foremost is the Max Factory Legend of Zelda Link Figma. For one of the premiere video game franchise for 25+ years, there’s a shocking lack of decent action figures for the game. Figma Link, based on the Skyward Sword game for the Nintendo Wii, changes that, offering the best plastic incarnation of the character to date. The sculpt is 100% faithful to the game, and the paint job, while simple, captures the graphics of the game quite well. There’s not much to discuss in terms of accessories, but they’re the type of things you expect to come packaged with a Figma-variant face, alternate hands, a stand, the iconic Master Sword and Hylian Shield, and a swinging effect for the sword. It’s a dream figure for those who’ve been waiting for a good Link figure, and one that’s not going to be around for long. Link retails for $54 and it’s totally worth every penny for long suffering Nintendo fans.

945789_549811575060624_2112295557_n31854-sailormarsfiguartsheader1Our selection of S.H. Figuarts has also expanded with a ton of #ladies! The super-popular Sailor Moon line has expanded, as we have both Sailor Mars and Mercury in stock, as well as the Pink Ranger from the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers line. All of these figures are super faithful to their source material, and posses about 30-4o points of articulation. And of course there’s variant hands and a few accessories per figure.

Both Sailor Scouts (I have a passing familiarity with Sailor Moon lingo) have changeable faces and wands, where as the Pink Ranger (Kimberly right?) has her bow and blaster. The lack of stands is a back whack, but it lowers the price point a bit, so that’s cool. Theses all retail in the $40 range, and we have a few other Sailor Moon/Power Rangers Figuarts in stock if you want to check those out too.

Amazing-Spider-Man-2-Marvel-Legends-Infinite-Series-Set HAS23425Concluding this return to form, I’m ending this article at a look at some new super hero figures. With Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (sploosh) due out in theaters this spring, Hasbro has rolled out 2 separate waves of 6″ Legends figures. The Spider-Man wave consists of movie-accurate Spider-Man and Electro, Ultimate Beetle (with modern Boomerang as the variant!), Carnage, the Superior Spider-Man AND Black Cat (with Spider-Girl as the variant). The Cap wave consists of Marvel NOW! Cap, Captain America from The First Avengers, Baron Zemo, the Red Skull, and both Hydra and A.I.M. grunts. Both waves have figures packaged with Build-A-Figure pieces, meaning if you drop close to $200 on buying either of these complete waves, you can get the Ultimate Green Goblin or a Mandroid. Please note that Hasbro has one again jacked up the cost of these figures, so they’re retailing close to $30 a pop.

That’s all for this week. With Toy Fair around the corner, I’ll try to update the toy side of things more often, but no promises FPNYC! Although there are some new Play Arts worth talking about….

ADVENTURE!

There’s just too much comics news to keep up with. I’m still trying to unravel threads from the NYCC, and the next thing I learn is I missed out on news from the SDCC! Did you know that Oni Comics is going to collect Scott C.’s AMAZING webcomic Double Fine Action Comics, starting in April of 2013? And they’re also going to be printing R. Stevens’ Diesel Sweeties? YOU KNEW? Why doesn’t anybody tell me?!

Still, this makes perfect sense. Sometimes trends can only be identified in hindsight, and sometimes we are walking in the middle of a trend and cannot see the forest for the trees. Double Fine Action Comics falls right into the very modern trend of Adventure!

SUPER ADVENTURE

In the Adventure genre, archetypal characters have never-ending, fantastic adventures across genre lines. These characters often become blasé about the mind-blowing nature of their deeds and accomplishments.

Obviously, the clearest example is the cartoon show Adventure Time, which also has a spectacular comic book out this week. Adventure Time #9 captures this spirit well, and is almost as awesome as the show… I say almost because it is a pretty awesome show to have to try and out-awesome.

Another book on the shelves this week that does a fine job with this concept is Shaolin Cowboy Adventure Magazine, a pulp mag printing stirring prose with illustrations from today’s top talents all centered around heart-stomping ADVENTURE!

After their success with The Matrix movies, the Wachowskis a.k.a. Andy and Lana Wachowski funded a small comic book label which printed some dang fine comics. One of these was Shaolin Cowboy, written and drawn (as only he can) by Matrix concept designer Geof Darrow.

Darrow is a master, plain and simple, layering ultra-violence with ridiculous minute detail. In his robot smash-‘em-up epic, The Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot, he will depict the nastiest, snarling monster-punching in a building and find a way to render every re-bar, every eviscerated victim and every pigeon flying off of the collapsing roof of said condemned structure.

Shaolin Cowboy was nuts, one of the most bizarre and intense action comics of all time. In Shaolin Cowboy, a silent Asian in flannel shirt and sandals wields twin katanas as he slices his way through countless thugs. These slay-rides are usually narrated by his talking mule.

What makes these books particularly mind-blowing is the characters. In Shaolin Cowboy, the cowboy might easily kill 50-100 flunky thugs in one issue, yet each and every single one of them will be uniquely rendered with their own peculiar dress code, grooming habits and quirks.

“UNKIEDEV, have you been sniffing white-out out of a corpse’s navel? ADVENTURE as a genre?” you may ask. “How is this different from this week’s Avengers #32, Amazing Spider-Man #696 or Superman #13?”

The biggest difference is setting. These stories almost always take place in alternate worlds, post-apocalyptic futures or featureless landscapes unrecognizable as our own.

NEXT WEEK: We’ll learn more about the new VS genre. Until then, go buy Superman #13… someone dies in it!

Hollywood Comicide

COMICS AND MOVIES

The line between comic book continuity and Hollywood has never been thinner, and both fan communities are adding fuel to the fire! The success of The Avengers movie has cemented another five solid years of comic book films, and that is only on Marvel’s slate. DC is SURE to throw their hat into the ring, either updating Batman in four years (ala Amazing Spider-Man) or finally getting off their keisters and making that Justice League movie everybody’s been waiting for.

MEANWHILE, indie comics both large and small continue to be a goldmine speculation business for producers. WHAT will be the next Walking Dead, and how can you be on the ground floor?

Here’s a quick guide to a few properties you might want to start reading…not only are they great comics, they could end up as big business blockbusters! Let’s start with the obvious and wind our way down to the obscure:

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

A great deal of people REALLY want you to like the T.M.N.T. in 2013. There are multiple television, toy and films being developed by several different entertainment conglomerates, all agreeing that, since the turtles were a huge runaway moneymaker once, it surely MUST happen again, right?

IDW’s current run of Turtle comics have been ALL RIGHT as far as these things go. The beautiful Turtle Archive book the same company has been publishing in deluxe hardcover have been a blast, too! Are the turtles books great? Well, they’re pretty darn good, and frankly, they are a refreshing breath of creative fresh air…since no one knew (at the time) this was going to be big business, the creators could throw ANY old thing in there.

BONE

Bone is one of those comics which must seem ancient to anyone born after it was created in the 90’s. Creator Jeff Smith and former publisher Scholastic have often toyed with turning BONE into a big screen blockbuster, and with good reason; Bone has already seen successful toys, video games, and multiple multi-volume printings.

But how is the comic? Continue reading

Mister Pretzelplyx

Aspiring comic book creators, such as myself, can often feel small and insignificant next to the wide array of talents on display in this week’s new release comics. Regular titles such as Amazing Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, and even Aquaman are top-notch reads from great writers and talents!

Another example; Dark Horse Presents #12, will have a new Aliens story from Chew writer John Layman and drawn by Mr. Sam “The MaxxKieth, as WELL as classic space adventure from Steve Rude’s Nexus. THAT sort of all-star line up can make a cartoonist feel two inches tall.

Which is exactly how I feel, but not for that reason. My self-confidence is fine, My evil arch nemesis slipped a shrink serum into my drink. That’s right: I’VE SHRUNK MYSELF! HALP!

RULE OF THUMB

I’m the size of pretzel rod, and ironically, I was wearing a pretzel rod costume while I began this experiment…I do my best writing in my pretzel rod costume. I also do my best writing at my local bar, where some patron (undoubtedly working for my arch villain) slipped me the micro-molecular micky! I’m hiding amongst a bunch of OTHER pretzel rods, hoping to camouflage myself until the effects wear off.

Till then I shall continue to text in my column. Deadlines are deadlines. What were we talking about? OH YEAH: talent!

DC has Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s Batman: Dark Victory out in an Absolute Edition this week. This team of shining talent turned out some classic Bat-yarns! The Long Halloween (available in paperback, absolute, or any other edition you might want) and Dark Victory are the books I’d point too should anyone ask what inspired The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan’s big budget Bat-flick from 2008, as well as the Batman video games of late which have titillated and enthralled.

The Loeb/Sale team is one of the most successful Bat-teams of all time, and I should know; I’ve read this next book:

The Comic Book History of Comics, Fred Van Lente (W), Ryan Dunlavey (A), IDW

The complete history of comics, from ancient times to the thoroughly modern, told in comic book form by comic book professionals! Fred Van “Marvel Zombies” Lente and Ryan “Action Philosophers” Dunlavey dispel misconceptions, clear up the cobwebs and shine light on true genius as they chart comics’ ups and downs with humor, detail, and self-referential brilliance!

If you like comics but don’t know anything about them, read this book! If you THINK you know what you’re doing, read this book and learn why you’ve been so painfully wrong this whole time…you stupid wrong jerk. Continue reading

The Return of Marvel Legends

by Chris Troy

Happy President’s Day FP Faithful! Was that wish an excuse to use an overplayed Marvel-based Abe Lincoln image? Yes, possibly, but hey, it’s the thought that counts right? Hopefully those of you who had the day off did something rad with it, as I slept for about 10 hours and spending most of Saturday drunk. Good times.

Anywho, let’s buckle down and talk toys. Toy Fair was last week and a TON of new offerings for 2012 were shown off. I was happy to see that Square Enix ended up with the Mass Effect license, and will end up making a plethora of rad figures later this year. The new GI Joe stuff looks great, and I’m sure Loran will be happy to talk about that soon. NECA is FINALLY making toys based on Valve products and I for one am excited for them. And Hasbro is going to make a killing off of that Marvel license, between the Avengers, Amazing Spider-Man, and their comics stuff. Which brings us to today’s topic….

After what seems like like an eternity (despite the existences of several retailer exclusives), the fan-favorite 6″ Marvel Legends line has returned. As cool as the Universe line has been over the last couple of years, this is the line collectors has always preferred. Granted the quality and articulation took a bit of a hit when the licenses went from Toy Biz to Mattel, it improved greatly before the line’s “death” a few years back. Luckily fan demand called for its return and it’s back, complete with the build-a-figure pieces that it made famous first.

For the most part, the line is solid in terms of sculpt, paint, and variety. However there are some faults.  First being the price. When the line first debuted back in 2002, you could pick up your average figure at about $7.99 at retail. Now? $20 is the CHEAPEST you’ll be finding them. Yes I know the economy and inflation and what not, but damn, that’s pretty expensive, especially when half the figures don’t come with accessories. And while the articulation is there, it’s still not on the level that it was when Toy Biz was calling the shots. But enough with me bitching, let’s take a look at the figures.

Let’s start off with the Avengers trinity. Here we have Steve Rogers, rocking his “Heroic Age” era outfit. It’s not a bad figure, but the head sculpt is a little whack. Iron Man is rocking his Extremis -era outfit, and why I’m not crazy about the wrist joints, it’s a pretty solid figure overall. Both Cap and Iron Man have variants, Cap with his Ionic shield and black paint job, Iron Man with a blue stealth version. Rounding out the trio is Thor, wearing his modern costume, and is easily the best of the bunch, at least in terms of the Avengers. He’s slightly larger than the others, has a great sculpt, and comes with his hammer Mjolnir (or “Mew-Mew” if you will).  The only downside is that Thor does not come with a Terrax built a figure piece, whereas Cap comes with his lower torso, and Stark with his right leg.

I have no idea which version of Ghost Rider this figure is based on, as it’s certainly not the modern female, or Nicholas Cage. But it’s slightly smaller than Thor, exists in both a blue flame and orange flame version and comes with both Terrax arms. Why he didn’t he come with a bike instead of the arms is beyond me. Hope, the only mutant and female figure in the line, is my personal favorite. She comes rocking a huge-ass gun, which would make her adopted daddy Cable proud. She also comes packaged with Terrax’s head and axe.

Rounding out the wave are 2 villains, Constrictor and Klaw. Both are accessory-less, like Iron Man, but both are crazy articulated and well sculpted. Also I’m fairly certain that,  much like Hope, this is the first time either one of these dudes got the Legends treatment. In terms of build of figure pieces, you’ll get  an upper torso from Constrictor and a right leg from Klaw.

The return of the ML line isn’t perfect, but hey, it’s a start right? The first shipment is nearly sold out, so needless to say, there’s a demand. If you want em,  be ready to grab ’em upon sight.

Review: Final Fantasy Dissidia Play Arts and Big O Figma

By Chris Troy

Happy Labor Day weekend FP Faithful (I assure you it was LD Weekend when I wrote this!). If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent your weekend drunk as hell in various locations (we’ll assuming everyone who reads this blog is of age) and catching up on various Netflix supplied programming and recent issues of your pull list regulars (If you haven’t been reading Dan Slott‘s “Amazing Spider-Man” or Rick Remender‘s “Uncanny X-Force“, you really owe it to yourselves to get caught up ASAP. Same goes for Robert Kirkman‘s “Invincible” ). And if you have some free time on your hands, swing by Forbidden Planet, where out import/Japanese toy section has received a ton of new merchandise in, which we’ll be looking at today.

The Big O” isn’t exactly the hottest nor the biggest anime series on the market. Those who were brought up on the early Toonami/Adult Swim era of Cartoon Network remember the show as an tribute to Batman: The Animated Series with a mecha flair to it. Yes it’s as awesome as it sounds, and aside from model kits from back in the day, it didn’t receive too much merch, as it obviously pre-dates both the Figma and Revoltech lines by many a year. Luckily for us, Max Factory decided to revisit the modern classic by releasing a  Dorothy Wayneright Figma for the 102nd entry of the popular line. You may be asking why not a Roger Smith (the main character, who I’m fairly certain is named after the dude from the Cure.) Figma, which does exist, but only as a Japanese exclusive because Japan and God hate me so very much.  Regardless, Dorothy is a very cool Figma, despite being very by the books. A little pale in the color department yes, but fans of the show should not that’s fairly accurate to the character. Accessory wise, you get the standard amount of various faces & hands, as well as a base. plus a broom a kitty familiar to those who’ve watched the show. She goes for about $45 dollars, which is a fair price for non-deluxe Figmas. We only get limited amounts of Figma at a time, so if you want her, best be coming to grab her now.

I haven’t looked at a Square Enix Play Art release in quite some time which is a shame, as they usually put out some good stuff every so often. The 1st wave of the Dissidia: Final Fantasy line has hit our shelves, offering  2 characters we’ve seen before, and well as Cloud Strike, who’s been released a number of times in different waves, making him Square’s Batman/Wolverine. The Dissidia releases may look similar to their previously released counterparts, with subtle differences here and there (Squall Leonhart from Final Fantasy 8 being the most obvious with his new shirt and little side skirt thing). Not to mention Cloud and Squall’s sculpts are a little more feminine/thinner than previous releases. And while the pretty boys from Final Fantasy 7 and 8 are going to the most popular with the fans, Final Fantasy 12’s villain Gabranth is probably the highlight of this wave. The sculpt and the amount of detail in the armor is really nice, surpassing the originals, which was the highlight of the FF12 line as well. Each figure retails for about $50, which yes, it pricey, but seeing how we already almost sold out of Cloud, shows people are willing to pay that much for these figures!

Free Comic Book Day 2011 (is coming)!

By Unkiedev

Logic states that any article regarding Free Comic Book Day should be written in order to glorify and promote. As the day in question is the first Saturday of May, one MIGHT logically write about it NEXT week, as it’s closer to the actual date so as to inspire participation…but this fails to take into account that people might have made plans for that day.

By promoting Free Comic Book Day (May7th) two weeks ahead of time, it gives you gals and guys ample time to cancel any and all obligations that morning so that you can be here at Forbidden Planet bright and early to catch all the eponymous free comics!

Unkiedev’s Helpful Guide to Ditching Engagements on Free Comic Book Day (May 7th) WITHOUT LYING

7. Had plans for mimosa and steak brunch with pals? “Ooh, sorry guys,” you’ll say,  “a famous detective needs my help that morning solving an international mystery.”  THIS will NOT be a lie, thanks to Inspector Gadget from Viper Comics!  YES the good Inspector’s adventures are silly, wacky and bonkers. That’s what makes them fun! Continue reading

Well, That’s All the Time We Have for Today

Sociologists would have you believe that the only reason we turn to comic books is for wish fulfillment…but would you be surprised to find out they can be right?!

For example: Kevin Nowlan draws great comic books, Mike Mignola writes good comic books. I wish these two guys could get together and make a comic book for me to buy this week featuring aliens and mutated cows. THEY DID?! Well, wasn’t that thoughtful.

The Hellboy: Buster Oakley Gets His Wish one shot written by Mr. Mignola and drawn by Kevin Nowlan promises to be a daringly bizarre Hellboy punch-em-up where the big guy goes toe to hoof with some alien ghoulies over livestock. I’m in!

So there, one wish fulfilled. That was easy! Continue reading

Batman In A Whale

By Unkiedev

Marvel tells us that Ultimate X #4 will ship this week.  Sure it will. I’ve only plugged it three times, and each solicitation fails to deliver.  If the Gods of Comic Books indeed intend to smile on us this week I can recommend few books more than Ultimate X #4. Don’t know the characters?  Don’t know the story?  Not to worry!  Art Adams art is some of the best in the biz…one look at those amazing pages and you won’t care what you’re reading!

AND if you don’t care what you’re reading then I’ve got some great place mats from road side diners you can borrow. They aren’t drawn by Art Adams, so that’s a minus, but they do have fun facts about pirates and a partially completed search-a-word puzzle.

If you DO care about what you read then check THIS stuff out! Continue reading

New Comics To Take Your Money

By Unkiedev

Boom-shanka! I decided the cave I lived in needed a little refurbishing so I stole me a shovel and got to diggin’. Now I live in a swanky duplex cave with a top floor, a bottom floor and a set of stairs in between…well, by stairs I mean a tree trunk with rocks shoved through it.

I also discovered dinosaur bones in my basement! What a thrill! I can definitively solve the ancient mystery of “Did Dinosaurs have feathers?” The answer is YES they DID! They also made crude tools out of rocks and wore leather moccasins if my dinosaur burial ground has anything to say about it.

On to the comic books:

Tony Daniel is one bad mamma-jamma, tearing up both writing and art duties in this week’s Batman #706. Did you know that two of DC’s biggest girl stars are having milestone issues this week…and that they’re both the same person? YEP! Supergirl #60 has some new talents telling the story of Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, while Power Girl #20 continues the adventures of the OLD Supergirl, Kara Zor-El from an alternate dimension which is really just the silver age Super Girl from Earth 2.

Oh DC, you are so wonderfully confusing.

Hmmm. I’m hearing the noises of Tom-Toms, which is odd as the newly renovated cave walls of my basement had many paintings of tom-toms, tee-pees and natives hunting buffalo. Kinda’ a weird thing to find in the grave of a dinosaur, wouldn’t you say? Continue reading

Wishful Thinking and The Comics That Exist

By Unkiedev

Batman:Odyssey #5 is as classic as classic gets, with fan favorite Neal Adams returning to the iconic character that made him en ever popular artist. Amazing Spider-Man #649 has got some great talents behind it, too. Deadpool is going to fight Howard the Duck’s “break-out Super-Villain,” the amazing Doctor Bong, in Deadpool #29.

It’s easy to find cool reasons to buy neat comics. It’s terrible when there’s comics you can’t buy…because they don’t exist!

For example, Ape Entertainment has out Pocket God #3, the third thrilling issue of a comic book based on an iphone game. They also have out Megamind #1, based on the CGI movie that most likely took a brutal beating from Harry Potter this weekend.

But where is my Harry Potter comic book?

Presenting a quick and dirty look at a few comic books that SHOULD exist, with a few ideas as to why they don’t. Continue reading

New Comics and GNs You Don’t Want To Miss

Cripes Dangit! I’ve been swept out to sea by a freakin’ flash flood and have NO comic books to read this week. While you’re reading DC’s Action Comics #893 this week, featuring a drag-down, messed up punch fest between Gorilla Grodd and Lex Luther I’ll be starving and suffering from Hypothermia. While you’re enjoying the latest Chew #14, I’ll be havin’ a blast watching my teeth fall out from scurvy. Whoop-dee-freakin’-DOO! While you’re blah blah blah Ultimate X #4, I’ll be blah blah something awful involving suffering in the middle of the ocean.

LOBO: HIGHWAY TO HELL, Scott Ian (W), Sam Kieth (A), DC

I plugged this when it came out and I’ll plug it now that it’s a Trade-Paperback.

I LOVE Sam Kieth’s moody, painterly art but I cannot stand his repetitive story themes. Fortunately Scott Ian of the metal band Anthrax is on writing duties with a story about the baddest alien bounty-hunter of all time taking Satan down a notch. BAM!

Lobo was THE biggest star of the late 90’s comic scene…kinda’ like Deadpool is today only grungier, I suppose. He’s an alien who’s race was so tough that he had to kill them all lest they ever try to muscle in on his intergalactic shake-down rackets. His high point was killing Santa Clause back when that meant something…the low point of his career was being killed by Wolverine during the DC/Marvel voting crossover. This will sound ultra-geeky, but there is NO WAY Wolverine could defeat Lobo. Continue reading

New Comics and Great Stuff

SEEDLESS OGN, Corey Lewis (W/A), Image

I love cartoonist Corey Lewis, a.k.a. “the Reyy” even though he comes off as an arrogant, preening twerp. Check out his insufferably smug blog reyy.com and see what I mean. So much talent in such a scruffy mirror junkie.

Corey is a comic book pretty boy with a high energy, fast graphitti style he used like a razor on fan art for Transformers, Thundercats and you name it. Back in the Deviant Art days he’d post a new sketch in marker a day. You could buy them cheap or commission em’ at rock bottom prices. He was cute and prolific. He was a media darlin’.

A smart lad, he turned that attention into output. He’s done some great work in the past: Street Fighter back-ups called Chop-Socky in the classic Udon Street fighter II comic, a fairly entertaining graphic novel about volley ball called Ping! and the crown jewel in his productivity: Sharkknife, the Scott Pilgrim-esque “We all live in a video-game” comic book about a sushi chef with a fantastic alter ego that came out WELL before Scott Pilgrim hit the scene.
