NECA really wants to pinball machine incident from The Accused my wallet. Now there's a Toon April 2.0 coming. No longer a bobblehead...
Most of the stuff she has we've seen before, but the high tech bondage device and blindfold head are screaming NEFTYVERSE Inappropriate pic time!!
I need to know WHEN will these drop so I can try and get them... hopefully, toon April won't be a Target exclusive and Movie concept April won't be Walmart's.

And Haley Joel Osment saw it. Harry Belafonte... Civil Rights Activist and notoriously known for the Banana Boat Song...
Has unfortunately, passed away. He was 96. My condolences to friends and family. I won't talk much about his activism, since the article I linked speaks of it far better than I could... and it's totally not because all I knew of him was
Mainly the Beetlejuice Soundtrack. So, I'm not making Beetlejuice references or using clips from the movie out of respect to the deceased. Once I publish this post, I'm going to do some internet reading of his activism in order to satisfy my curiosity. I mean, the dude hung out with MLK, Mandela, and even grilled Beyoncé for not doing enough for the community.
And I want her, no I NEED HER! The fogure is not movie accurate, but I NEED HER...
Nefty, the way you're speaking is as if they made her in The toon Banana Jumpsuit...
They made Judith Hoag April in the motherfucking cartoon outfit!!

Mattel will be able to do Transformers UNO cards and Hasbro will be able to do a Barbie Monopoly... now that I look at it, it sounds less impressive than I thought.
I may not be one of the biggest fans of the "Red Sky" seasons, but they ARE a part of TMNT Lore and characters like carter and Lord Dregg didn't get any toys. Maybe Super7 can do something about it... Assuming the Playmates blockade is still going on, looking at the Red Sky seasons can give us an April Variant that isn't an "out there" concept... like a "Glam Rock April" that looks like a cross between Jem and Vixen... but that's not the topic at hand: it's Carter and Lord Dregg...
But Who ARE THEY, really? Carter is a human teen sidekick forced because reasons. He's an apprentice of Splinter. Meaning we get mostly reused accessories. Vintage Ninja rack stuff. For Unique weapons, I don't remember these seasons too much, but I think Tonfa would be nice, especially sonce we can give him Bladed tonfa for his mutated form. The obvious extra hands would be here. I would choose the following heads: Neutral expression, excited/angry expression and a Biker helmet with silver visor as a "third head".
|Anyone knows where I could|
find a 1:10 scale bike?
|April is there for size...|

It's the Barbie Selfie Generator, now you can be a Barbie... or a Ken where you can upload a selfie or a pic of someone and it edits out the normal background to add a new Barbie themed background... it's a fun little thing, you can even add captions. Of course I've seen some folks misusing the app in the most horrible ways. I was going to share a few that I've seen online, but since Blogger has become a widdle bit too sensitive and marks everything as sensitive topics... some of those pics are a bit unflattering with instagram girls... so, here's a good and clean Barbie Selfie Generator pic that even Blogger won't bitch about "sensitive content".
|Sure you can...|
Sadly Aqua broke up and they won't be able to use this to troll Mattel. Their break-up was a mess that I won't touch here.

I have mixed feelings about it. The de.o is obviously VERY limited. The character creation tool is decent... it's not on the Smackdown! games level, but it's a lot better than Expected. It still takes some time to get used to it and I have to wonder if there are far more parts being held back. The World Tour mode where you ise your created chatacter reminds me a lot of Dragon Ball Xenoverse with a Street Fighter twist.
I'm not too fond of the "Super Smash Bros. wannabe" Modern controls, but the demo kinda forces you on it. The Drive mechanics will make competitive gaming very interesting. Right now i don't feel TOO rushed to get the game. I CAN DEFINITELY WAIT for Christmas for it... unlike Nintendo's TLoZ Tears of the Kingdom. But even if Nintendo wasn't releasing a Zelda game close to this game's release (I know there's like a month or two between them), I would still wait, since I got burned with SFV.
I think that my following statement might be a bit controversial. I found World Tour to be much better than the actual game itself, to the point that I believe Capcom should make World Tour a sister series to Street Fighter. I mean kinda like Rival Schools, but the focus would be on old and new characters and the Create a Fighter feature. The latter being the main focus. You get say, 20 slots of existing characters (all made just like the created fighters, so there's no marked difference between customer created characters and Capcom Characters.

The possibility of a Playmates Embargo on TMNT hasn't been made clear as of the writing of this rant, so, I suppose we should tackle these two, seeing that they're very similar. Both are members of the Foot Clan and they're heavily involved in a personal war. Since the Ultimates is inspired by the vintage toyline, which is a weird amalgamation of Mirage and toon, we can take elements from both to have characters:
I have made suggestions for these i. The past, but they heavily relied on Playmates Toys likenesses and elements. With the possible embargo, we need to change that.
It's green and it's gobliny... ues, The green Douchebag is coming... and has a Norman head.
I know what you're thinking:
Big Deal, we've had Plenty of Green Goblins and some already come with Norman Osborn heads... but none of them cone with The animated series Glider... betting Hobgoblin will come soon... I wish he did with the bigass glider...
But a Green Goblin, even with the TAS Glider isn't enough to push me to get this...
Godfuckingdammit! Now I NEED this... hopefully Hasbro will add alternate Hydroclone MJ hands...
GIMME A TAS Peter Parker!!! Striped shirt version preferred. AlsoA Legendary Riders Smythe is an obvious item.
Oh no, I better shut up, my wallet is weeping hard.
He's back! Now he's Fucked Up Beyond All Recognition... no, that's the name of his new Netflix show: FUBAR
I'm getting True Lies vibes from this trailer. This moght be a good thing, but at the same time it's Netflix... we saw what they did to Power Rangers... dammit, I guess I found another reason to NOT cancel Netflix.
It's coming soon... I guess Arnold must have been cumming left and right in preparation for this series...
This line better make it somehow... the trailer already showed a variation on I'll be back... I bet that getting into a helicopter will be referenced and if a character is on a diet, we could get
But of course, these are mandatory. In any case, I should check this out in May...

Think about it: Yes, I know товарищ Сигал is a massive douche canoe. With that said, he's still an 80s icon and one of my idols. I think he's a perfect candidate for Super7 Ultimates:
Say what you will about товарищ Сигал, but he'd kick so much ass as an actual action figure... but there is another Seagal variant... The Comrade...

The "Playmates embargo" could Theoretically be bypassed for the Fugitoid. This is due to a single appearance as a generic enemy in TMNT3: The Manhattan Project.
The body would receive some tweaks like losing the hinged panel, which is exclusive to the Playmates version, and the vintage weapons. We can get away with the colors from the NES game and the body shape from pretty much every version of the Fugitoid, since they follow the Mirage design.

Yes, they're trung to hitch a ride with super Mario's popularity by claiming that Bowser is sexist, misogynistic, and promotes the stalking and harassment of women... almost as if he was a villain.
Apparently, the SJWs are butthurt because Bowser is relatable... Yes, Bowser is a Turtle-Dragon hellbent in world domination and has killed, enslaved, and done other things in hos quest to rule. At the same time, he's a socially inept dork, who is trying too hard to impress a girl the wrong way. Again, he's the villain. OF COURSE HE'S GOING TO HAVE WARPED MORALS, hence the "misogynistic" approach he has. But again, he's a socially inept Turtle-Dragon. Socially inept people have cringy behavior often impulsed by skewed versions of social norms. We've all had our cringy phase. ESPECIALLY WHEN DEALING WITH UNREQUITED LOVE. That's what's so relatable about Bowser. He's the Band geek who's fallen in love with the Head Cheerleader and is doing everything and anything to get her attention. He's the dork who's been reading the PUA BS to try and manipulate the female psyche to his whim.
Bowser's behavior is not the relatable part. What's relatable are his motivations, his feelings. He's basically a warped version of Meat Loaf in I'd do Anything for You... He's deeply infatuated by this "impossible girl" or at least the concept of the girl and not the actual girl. Oh no, I'm going to overanalyze Peacher, aren't I?
I'm tempted but no: if you want to read an analysis of the lyrics, here you go:
All of his actions are attempts to convince her that he's the perfect man (Turtle-Dragon) for her, or to impress her. But he has barely interacted with her until he finally captures her. He doesn't know her, but he loves whatever fantasy he created about her in his head. Those of us who have had a socially inept phase KNOW where he comes from and can relate due to our experiences. That doesn't mean that we approve of his genocidal ways. I include myself here because I'VE BEEN ON A MORE REALISTIC VERSION OF HIS SITUATION. Everyone who has a shred of common sense understands that Bowser is completely wrong on how he copes with his feelings. Also, if he did everything the righr way, he wouldn't be the villain.
Now if your kid is emulating Bowser, that's the part where you do the Parent thing and explain why Bowser's actions are wrong. The people complaining about this are about 35 years too late.

As I mentioned in the Undercover Raph's review, I planned to make a Don the Undercover Turtle inspired custom in case Super7 couldn't make an official figure and Turn the Raphael body into a Nightwatcher or something similar... still on the planning part. Here's what I've learned in the process.
|It's not a 100% accurate look, but it's reaching |
the minimum threshold for passable.
By Enemy Stand I mean a MOTU Themed Stand made by someone who Isn't Mattel.
Ramen Toy, the ones who were making a figure of a vertically challenged clambaked loon who hastily retreats whenever he has homoerotic thoughts... they were hit with a cease and desist from the guy's people. I mean the dude threatened Funko for a Pop! Of his character.
They made a Stand for
MOTU Figures. They have 2 upcoming tmnt themed stands... I mean random NYC alley and sewer stands.
I mean it's a stand and has interchangeable pegs (that I won't use, since I want this as a weird movie prop to have in the eventual second time around diorama that I have on the backburner)
The stand feels sturdy and it can fit figures from various lines like say Masters of the Universe Origins, masterverse, and Masters of the Universe classics just to name a few.
|Classics Nefty-kun is back!!|
|Eat your milk, say your vitamins and drink your prayers, brother!|
|Teela:*sniffs* My chocolate treat smells like cherries... mmmmm!|
Diana: Help me...
There isn't much that I can say about it I mean it's a stand that looks like the Vintage card back of Masters of the Universe figures. Well I can mention that the piece that you use to connect multiple stands together actually looks like the new chest Insignia that Heman is using. You know the one, the weird HM Fusion that has been used since the '80s for the variants like Battle Armor He-Man, Thunder punch He-Man, Flying Fists He-Man just to name a few.
Personally I wouldn't recommend buying too many of them because they occupy a bit of space. Now if you wanted to display a single figure somewhere like say, on your office desk then I would totally recommend the stand and using the included Peg.

I am referring to the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon. I got Hank the Ranger and Diana the Acrobat on clearance. They had Bobby, but I only had spare cash to buy 2 out of 3... priorities and stuff. The cartoon gang has a cameo on the new movie. Seeing that they were on clearance was the reason I got them. I was afraid of getting them due to QC Horror stories and price point is a smidge too much for their size and accessory count.
|I gues this could be considered a saving throw?|
|Score boost wasn't great for Hank.|
|I'm trying to give the dice some importance...|
I haven't played D&D since the first half of the 90s... I miss those days.

With Karai and Ninja April, we have the first 2 Kunoichi in the line. I've mentioned that with some creative parts reuse, and some new pieces an Ultimates Aska is doable. In addition, with Karai, it's easier to make an Ultimates Jennika.

Based on the TMNT Adventures story where April is turned into a Mutant Turtle.
My biggest worry is that she will be in the exaggerated art style of TMNT Adventures that doesn't go well with the Toon TMNT or thr MIRAGE TMNT... do we need to get new TMNT all over again?
Personally, I was hoping for a non-bobblehead Toon April 2.0 or a Paige Turco April. Hell, evem a Red Sky April would've been a more interesting figure with potentially more mass appeal. In any case we need to stand by and see what is NECA cooking...
We got the official notice and we have to contact Super7 if we preordered Rat King to:
Despite Mario being a successful movie, a Legend of Zelda movie would be bad for one single reason: Scope.
