Who is the G-Man?!!!

The G-Man is a Hasbro employee that I have befriended in my many toy hauls. I think the moment that cemented my friendship with him was when at the Queens Place Target I had reached the Marvel Legends pegs first and picked up a Juggernaut.

He said he wanted it for his son and I gave it to him.

But he has relevant info that can come in handy. For instance, he was the first to inform me of the SDCC Stan Lee/Spider-Man and lets me know what toys he's seen and where.





He also gave me a Transformers Cybertron Display for helping him on a matchbox run (yes he's one of those) I realized after opening the display case that are the figures were glued in place, and I broke some in the process of un-gluing them. I chucked Galvatron when I moved out.

His name begins with a "G" and I'm sure the insider info he has Hasbro won't appreciate it being leaked.

He also informed me about all the Sigma 6 figures in the warehouse that flooded Toys R Us Christmas 2008

So what's the next piece of info that I have for you Hasbro lovers.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Toys R Us will be having a Marvel themed month? week? He told me but I forgot and it should start in May with the release of Thor.

If you've noticed Thor comes out in May, X-Men First Class in June and Captain America in July. So that's 3 months of Marvel goodness. I will be trying to save up because I imagine this event will be sale-o-licious!

Next time I see him I'll try and get my facts straight.

So if I mention the G-Man anywhere on this blog you can always check out this post to know who he is.

New Stuff For "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" Cartoon

While watching the special features on the Avengers DVD's they announced new looks and new characters for the series, which is awesome!

I like the series and the way they tackle stories for the Marvel Universe. The Ultimates line of comics did the same thing, but somehow they got it wrong. These guys got it right.

Halo: New York Toy Fair 2012

Wow! I didn't expect much from McFarlane but I am impressed. Even though my toy heart was broken by the realization that Halo Reach ends with series 6 ( I expected an unhelmeted Emile and Noble Six? in Series 7) But as long as the scale of the new stuff sticks with Reach I'll be happy. If not I hope the quality control gets better.

Here's the stuff I'm excited for!


Super Hero Squad Online Review

If you haven't gotten my open invitation to the beta, and accepted it. You're missing out on being a Marvel Super Hero. Unlike DC's MMORPG you can play as Thor, or Spider-Man if you wanted to. But lets go into the review shall we.

Size Comparison - Halo Reach Video Series

I love the Halo Reach line of figures from McFarlane Toys. I don't know why I didn't jump on the bandwagon earlier.

But I've always gotten into toy lines after or near the end of their run. I don't know why, it just is.

Anyway..

Top 10 Halo Reach Figures!!!

To end the year of doom 2012, I'm making this list and checking it twice.

MY TOP 10 HALO REACH ACTION FIGURES!!!

 10. Carter:



The leader of Noble Team and one of the coolest armor designs comes in at number 10. Not because he's the worst, but because it might be too obvious if he's number 1. I love the Commando armor, the blue color and the distinctive markings.
