Did you know that one of the most memorable sidekicks of the 80s was a last minute addition to the masters of the universe toy line? Mattel designers just reoffered He-Man a toy tiger and gave it a green and orange paint job to make it look quite different. The character is now as important to He-Man fans as Prince Adam or Skeletor, and Mondo acknowledges him with a Truly spectacular 1/6 scale Battle Cat figure measuring 18 inches long and featuring over 60 points of articulation, four interchangeable heads including a less fierce Cringer, fully removable armor, bendable tail and a mini baby Cringer figure.

Hasbro Transformers Masterpiece MPG-04 Trainbot Suiken

We’re not afraid to admit that we’re mildly obsessed with Takara Tomy’s trainbots from the Transformers: Directors anime, and won’t claim that their vehicle modes aren’t as exciting as fighter jets or sports maps. But we’re still here for those impeccably detailed trains, and wish Hasbro would hurry and release the six that combine to form Raiden. Suiken is the fourth trainbot to hit Hasbro Pulse, and includes a blaster and three modes: robot, train and Raiden’s left arm, plus a bazooka weapon for the combiner. Suiken’s available for pre-order now for $150but unfortunately will not ship until September 2023.

Edible Elf on the Gummy Shelf

The Elf 0n a Shelf is another attempt to keep children on their best behavior as the holidays approach, the premise being that each night the elf returns to the North Pole to report any misbehavior to Santa and returns the next day. morning to a new vantage point in the house from where he watches over the children who live there. A spooky concept made even scarier by Vat19 with this gummy $7 version of the Shelf Elf which, instead of returning to the North Pole for good on December 24th, can be consumed by children as a kind of cannibalistic act of revenge to be a stool.
