    Just found the Star Trek KREOs! All of them except the BoP. The red struts on the shuttlecraft are not sturdy enough. More to come.

    Thanks much. No huge rush or anything, but I'm sure folks would get a kick out of seeing what they look like.

    The Space Suit Kirk in the mini set lights up. The Transporter Troubles set features Vazquez Rocks both on the packaging and in the decals. I don't remember if this was common knowledge before. Okay, here are my pics:

    Whoops, it wasn't supposed to be this blurry:

    Inside the box USS Enterprise:

    I like the boxes, they are taped instead of glued which means they can be reused very cleanly. Sometimes the smaller sets when finished will fit inside the box like this:

    Here are the instructions for Space Dive. Note the "Specialist" ;) has a HUMUNGOUS gun that actually fires!

    The helmet of the Space Dive Kirk figure lights up when you press the button on his back, visible here.

    What ends up lighting up are the two little dark spots on his helmet that you can kind of see here:

    I've finally dug up most of my old Playmates Trek figures. I'll post photos later!

    Someone has some Man of Steel Movie Masters Wave 2 pics

    Faora looks horrid! Her head is massive. What the heck happened? Armored Zod, though, is off the chain! I cannot wait to get my hands on that one.

    Word is that wave 1 is starting to hit retailers. Keep your eyes peeled.

    I haven't seen them at any local stores yet. Thanks for the heads up.

    They don't come out I don't think until June or late May?? Faora looks like crap, Zod in his full suit looks awesome. Superman looks decent.

    I mentioned a few pages ago that Diamond Select is releasing a First Contact Enterprise-E...and here are our first glimpses of it. I figured I have waited this long for the Nemesis ship...I might as well wait for a few more weeks for this baby! I believe she comes out next month.

    The Toys 'R' Us-exclusive Endor AT-AT Walker has hit some California stores and the very first American-packaged copies have surfaced on eBay.

    This is over a month earlier than originally scheduled. Keep your eyes peeled if you want it.

    Clint and Tasha take the little ones out for a sunny stroll.

    Clint has a close encounter of the toad kind.

    Toad is not impressed.

    Toad is cool.

    Give him his own spinoff thread.

    Heh. He's not going to stick around. Probably already gone from the porch!

    ^ Are you sure the Jackal isn't hanging around there or Zola isn't doing some kind of cloning experiments? So many Clint and 'Tasha's!!! :)

    More Clint and Tasha just means more exciting adventures and trouble for them to get into, and more KM episodes!

    I just learned that Hasbro has given some nice updates to two classic Transformers, Blitzwing and Springer. Do want! :D I also recently got the new version of Blaster (a nice retool and recolor of Soundwave's mode, with his own cassettes) and a new version of Trailbreaker is also due out soon. IDW also gave Megatron a new form, after his G1 form was badly damaged and he was thought dead (he came up with a very clever use for his old body). I like this particular incarnation of him.
