PlayStation Classic Video and Details

Yesterday Sony joined the classic mini console craze by announcing the release of the PlayStation Classic which will come pre-loaded with 20 original PlayStation games. The PlayStation classic is set to release this Holiday season (December 3) and will cost $99.99 USD ($129.99 CAN, $149.99 AUD). This new retro-gaming console looks exactly like a scaled down version of the original gray PlayStation released back in 1994. The major problem with these classic consoles that have become so popular lately, is actually trying to find one in stores. However, the PlayStation classic is currently up for pre-order right now and we have the info on how you can reserve yours. 

NECA Comic Con Exclusive TMNT Figures

If you are a fan of the original live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie from 1990 then this post is definitely for you. NECA has revealed their exclusive TMNT figure set for Comic-Con International 2018 and it is awesome! The set includes all four of the turtles (Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael), their weapons from the movie, as well as some other various accessories. NECA had previously released larger versions of these figures which ran about $150 each. However, the figures in this set are only 7 inches tall, fully articulated, and will only set you back $125 for the whole set. In all honesty these are probably the best looking TMNT figures I have ever seen.

Bandai Mini Classic Voltron Figure

If you were a kid who grew up in the 80s or just a fan of the popular animated series Voltron then you have to check this out. Bandai has released a new mini-figure for pre-order that actually comes with 5 lions to combine into the defender of the universe Voltron or Beast King GoLion as he is known in Japan. Fully combined this figure stands at only approx. 7.1″ tall, but is still highly pose-able and very detailed. The paint scheme on this figure is nice and bright, and very reminiscent of the original animation. This new Voltron figure is going to be part of Bandai’s Shokugan Mini Pla series which means that the figures will have some die-cast in them.

Hasbro Buys The Power Rangers

Hasbro has officially purchased the Power Rangers property from Saban Entertainment. According to reports the cost of the deal is valued at $520 million. That is a whole lot of money but I think that it has gone to some really good and capable hands. Not only did Hasbro acquire the Power Rangers but the deal also included several other brands like; My Pet MonsterPopplesJulius Jr., and Luna Petunia. Hasbro is one of the biggest toy companies in the industry today and I think this could be really good news for toy collectors and Power Rangers fans that want to see a real movie franchise come to life. Below we have posted a statement from Hasbro’s CEO Brian Goldner about the purchase.

PS4 Spider-Man Hoodie

So far there has been no official release date given for the much anticipated Spider-Man game coming to the PlayStation 4 this year, but rumor has it that it will be out sometime at the end of June. However that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be excited or try to get your hands on a pretty awesome piece of Spider-Man merch featuring his signature look from the upcoming game. Check out this awesome hoodie with the sick looking white spider across the front and back of it. This new look for the web head is definitely unique and I wasn’t sure I liked it at first, but it definitely started to grow on me. Unfortunately they are only taking pre-orders for this hoodie right now and it won’t be available until June of this year either.

Toys”R”Us files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

The first thing I have to say is don’t panic Nerd Nation. When I first read the news about Toys”R”Us filing for bankruptcy, I about lost my sh*t. Ever since I was a kid I have always loved going into Toys”R”Us stores and now having kids I love it even more. I’ve seen a lot of sights posting that Toys”R”Us stores will be closing their doors, but that is NOT true. At least not yet anyways. Had they filed chapter 7 bankruptcy then we would definitely be kissing their stores goodbye right now. Thankfully the toy store giant has filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy and the hope is that they will come out of this with a lot less debt, and once again be competitive in the ever changing retail market.

NEW Mortal Kombat/Crash Bandicoot POPS

Time to make some room on your shelves Nerd Nation because some pretty awesome Pop figures, from some very iconic video game franchises will be making their way to stores shortly. Funko announced today on their blog that they will be releasing a line of Pop figures from both the Mortal Kombat and Crash Bndicoot video game series. Personally I think I am more excited for the Mortal Kombat Pops but I will definitely be getting Crash as well. Both figure lines are set to be released in November of this year just in time for the holidays. Below I have posted an image gallery for you viewing pleasure, so be sure to check it out to see all the figures from both Mortal Kombat and Crash Bandicoot.

This week one of the most iconic animated series from the 90s turned 25 years old. For those of you that grew up in the 90s you probably loved or at least were familiar with Batman: The Animated Series.
