My SDCC 2014 fantasy reveals

Another San Diego Comic Con has passed and I will say that I was very underwhelmed with this years toy reveals. To me it was the same old same old business as usual, nothing earth shattering  or so exciting that I got giddy with anticipation. So, I have decided to make a "What if" fantasy list of reveals that I think would have been far more interesting then the reality.

Mattel announces Club Filmation ! A monthly subscription just like the MOTUC covering Filmation properties from the 70's and 80's such as The Original Ghostbusters, Blackstar, BraveStarr,and Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

Hasbro announces the combine worlds concept where many of the current and past cult favorites come together into one cohesive line. To get the ball rolling they unveil the Micronauts / Inhumanoids Earthcorps 2 pack sets that will be supported by the new Micronauts animated series and the CGI Inhumanoids movie. Also shown is the Centurions: Rise of  Metlar deluxe gift  pack.

Good Smile Company shows off there new wave of Figma's that include the cast of Space Dandy.

 Neca displays their Goonies 2 figures and display/play sets based on the new movie.

And finally, after working out the licensing issues with Parker brothers, Marvel shows the first teaser trailer for Rom the Spaceknight live action movie and hints at a new comic book series and toy line.

One can dream I guess. None of these things are very likely to happen, but it would be great if they did.

How about some Food Fighters?
These guys are not Food Fighters but do fit in well with them on a shelf.

TMNT Mutagen Man

A while back I set a rule for myself, NO BUYING NEW TOYS! This rule covered thrift stores, yard sales, Brick and mortar stores, and especially internet shopping.Trading is ok because its like alchemy, equivalent exchange. But my friends, I am only human,with a weaknesses inherent to the human race...I LOVE TOYS. Yes, I indeed broke my own law. I gave it a Herculean effort, nearly 2 years without buying a new toy, but those plastic demons are hard to shake. The smell of fresh plastic right out of the pack, for me, is like the rush of heroine into a junkies veins. The tearing of the bubble off of the card gives me a euphoria rarely seen since the passing of the opium dens of  the Victorian era.With that said, this is the new TMNT Mutagen Man, my relapse.
