Hasbro showed up to Toy Fair 2017 with quite a few surprises, in addition to some expected Transformers lineup annoucements.
We finally got to see Leader Class Overlord, Voyagers Blitzwing and Octane and Deluxes Top Spin and Twin Twist. We also found out we are getting a new Seaspray and a new Ramhorn!
In addition to the normal line up reveals, Hasbro dropped two new exclusive box sets; Siege on Cybertron and Chaos on Velocitron.
The centerpiece of Hasbro’s Titans Return display at this year’s Toy Fair was the newly revealed Titans Return Trypticon.
Trypticon won a fan poll last year for the next titan class Transformers figure against the likes of Scopronok and Omega Supreme. This was the first time the full prototype has been on display and lots of news surrounding it has come out.
Full Tilt, the smaller Transformer that came with the original Trypticon, is included.
Full Tilt has a Titan Master. The Titan Master’s name is Necro.
Necro appears to be based on Wipe Out, an obscure character that appeared with Trypticon at one point.
No Electronics (the choice was to include Full Tilt instead of electronics).
Base mode can connect to the other bases in the line.
Opening the mouth reveals a ‘throat’ which will funnel a Titan Master down to Trypticon’s chest compartment.
At New York Comic Con this past weekend, Marvel Entertainment announced that Ultimate Spider-Man will be ending its run in early January at the end of its fourth season. It’s replacement series New Spider-Man will debut later in 2017. Produced by Robot Chicken’s Kevin Shinick and supervising director Philip Pignotti, New Spider-Man will feature a Spider-Man who has just started out as a superhero. Along with New Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy will get a second season, which features a storyline teaming them with the avengers. Avengers Assemble will also return for an all new season, and will feature cameos by Black Panther, Ms Marvel, and Agent Carter, who will be voiced by Haley Atwell.
Deus Ex Mankind Divided released two weeks ago to critical reception. It’s just one of the many hits that will be arriving throughout the ending months of the year.
This year already saw a series of excellent titles. Hits such as Doom, XCom 2, and Overwatch have graced our consoles and PCS, and even more hits are yet to come now that we’re in the last 4 months of the year. We’re quickly approaching the holiday season, and these are just ten games that will no doubt end up on many a gamer’s Christmas List and Black Friday Shopping cart. Check out our list after the jump, in no particular order. [Read the rest of this entry…]
The rumors have been officially confirmed. Gabriel Luna (True Detective, Matador) will be taking the role of Robbie Reyes, a.k.a the Ghost Rider on Agents of Shield this forthcoming season. For those who don’t read the comics, Robbie Reyes is the most recent person to take the mantle of the spirit of vengeance. After losing his parents, Reyes lives along with his younger brother Gabe. When he is gunned down by gangbangers, Reyes becomes the Ghost Rider after being bonded with the spirit of Eli Morrow, a victim of gang violence. Rather than using a motorcycle like his predecessors, Reyes instead drives a souped-up muscle car. Instead of having a flaming skull, he wears a skull helmet that’s on fire.
If you’re disappointed that Ghost Rider is a character on Agents of Shield, remember, Reyes isn’t the only Ghost Rider in the comics, and it’s still possible for Marvel to make a movie or Netflix series with the original Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze (and of course Nick Cage would be nowhere near it this time). While Ghost Rider is an odd choice for Agents of Shield, but then again so were Deathlok and the Inhumans, and they fit quite nicely. It’s great to see Marvel TV dip more into the comics to supplement Agents of Shield.
