MasterPiece Prowel and Blue Streak

These figures are fuckin sick and I can’t wait until they are released. Takara has been putting out some awesome Transformers Masterpiece figures but I honestly think these might be the best. Now I know what you’re probably thinking… You might be thinking these guys aren’t that great but they were 2 of my favorites growing up, and these figures really capture their dynamic look. Not to mention how bad ass would it be to see an actual cop car that was a 280 Z?

There isn’t much info on the figures and these are some early pictures but the estimated release date is sometime in August or September. Masterpiece figures are always pricey and these are no exception. It looks like we’re gonna have to pay somewhere around $75-$80 a figure….Still getting them!

Anyways, check out these pictures and tell me you don’t love these figures (Don’t you dare tell me you don’t love them). Oh and click the links to see where you can pre-oreder both Prowel and Blue Streak.


Assassin’s Creed Black Flag

So here we go with the next Assassin’s Creed game. Now initially I was pretty annoyed about the fact that it seemed like it was just going to be a repeat of what we’ve already scene. Granted there was a bit of a new twist with the character and the whole naval warfare that people loved so much from the last one. However, after watching this trailer it seems like almost a completely new game. It looks like they are going away from the somber and secretive hero to a much more charismatic and exciting type of anti-hero.

It seems a little cheese ball to have Black Beard (The most feared pirate of all time) telling a would be crew about how much deadlier Captain Kenway is than himself. Now, I get what they’re doing with this as they try to set the stage for how much different our new assassin is, but it still seems like a bit of a stretch. However, I really do like the idea of Captain Kenway being painted as somewhat of the black sheep in the family line. So this is definitely a new direction for the game.

Not to mention that most of the game will now be set mainly on ships and in small sea side villages. The only thing I am worried about is we’re not exactly sure how long this game has been in development and it seems like they are releasing 3 and 4 ridiculously close together. Hopefully this will be something new and innovative that will help relaunch the series, and not something that will drive the nails into it’s proverbial coffin.

So what do you guys think about this game? Do you think these changes will make the game better or worse and did this trailer change your mind in any way? As always, check out the trailer for Assassin’s Creed Black Flag and let us know your thoughts on our Facebook Page!
