Toy News: Obscure Redeco Alert! G.I. Joe "Dollar General" releases to use SDCC Soundwave accessory!

in Generation One, News

According to toy site Toy Hype USA, the upcoming wave of "Dollar General" G.I. Joe repaints will feature an accessory that had previously been part of the San Diego Comic-Con Shockwave/HISS Tank exclusive. Namely, this set will feature Soundwave with cassettes as an accessory. This non-transforming "boom box" is perfectly sized to go with Joes and looks great in the pics on the site. If history is any indicator, these will be fairly difficult to find at first and then become more plentiful months later. Good hunting fans!

Video Games: "Transformers Universe" Jagex team hires former "007 Legends" team members

in News

Development of "Transformers Universe", the MMO game for Transformers continues to move forward, and now it will be with more talent behind the scenes. According to VG247, Jagex, the studio that is creating the game has hired nineteen former staffers from the now defunct "Eurocom", who last worked on the "007 Legends" James Bond game.

I'm of two minds on this. I am happy to see jobs and livelihoods saved of course. However, the "007 Legends" game was pretty universally panned, but even successful studios have been known to put out lemons now and then. Let's hope this means the game will move into production faster!
