White Jinx Is A Cool Variant

Keeping up with their trend from the last few years, Hasbro released a very limited, and already highly sought-after variant of their awesome GI Joe Jinx figure.  The alternate take on Kim Arashikage sports a new, unmasked headsculpt and a white version of her costume, and it’s a great figure for any die-hard Real American Hero collectors.

Playmates Shells Out Their (Mostly) Great New TMNT Figures

Since their debut at Toy Fair in February, I’ve been highly anticipating the release of Playmates’ new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line.  Based on Nickelodean’s upcoming CGI-animated reboot of the television series, the titular characters sport fresh new sculpts that pull elements from both the original Mirage comic series as well as the classic animated series, but with some creative new twists.  Unfortunately, while all four turtles look and feel incredible, the supporting cast received a rather below-average treatment, hurting the line as a whole.
