Happy belated Thanksgiving, everyone! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday and that you're either being extremely careful, shopping online, or just avoiding Black Friday this year. Besides, there is lots of good stuff to stream this year so staying home isn't so bad. With a new episode of The Mandalorian today, another tree to decorate (we're doing two trees this year), and some Lego Harry Potter to play on the Nintendo Switch we're going to be plenty occupied. I've also been watching lots of other stuff.
Did you check out any of the MST3K Turkey Day marathon? We didn't get to watch the whole thing but we watched parts of Pod People along with Night of the Blood Beast and Cry Wilderness. My daughter legitimately loves Cry Wilderness, by the way, so that was a nice surprise. I missed Emily Crenshaw's riffing segment so I'm going to have to track that down. More stuff, including Star Wars and Kurt Russell as Santa Claus after the break...
* Flint and Lady Jaye were a pretty great reveal this week, weren't they? I'm loving Hasbro's G.I. Joe: Classified series and it's awesome to see two more members of the Joe team. Flint and Lady Jaye both look incredible. I love their vintage style with some more modern flourishes and lots of cool gear. I wish Lady Jaye had a sidearm, though. It drives me crazy when the figures don't have a simple sidearm with them! I put a preorder in through BBTS and fortunately, since these aren't exclusives, most folks should have an easier time with these two.
Let's take a look at the most popular reviews this week to wrap things up!
Teela from Masters of the Universe Origins is on her fourth week and she's still on the top! What can I say? Teela's a beloved character from one of the greatest properties of them all! I think she's the best figure in the line so far and a worthy successor to the vintage toy.
Evil-Lyn from Master of the Universe Mega Construx
is on her third week on the list and she's in good company
as half of the list is Masters of the Universe related. The Mega
Construx line seems like it's doing well and Evil-Lyn is a popular lady,
so I expect her to hang around a bit. I've been reviewing some other
figures from the line this week, too, so we'll see if those prove to be
Raphael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimates
is also on his third week on the list and he's proof that major
league butt-kicking never left. Turtle Power is still strong after all
these years and Super7's new line is perhaps the most radical yet.
Baroness with Cobra C.O.I.L. from G.I. Joe: Classified Series
is on her second week. The G.I. Joe: Classified Series is
extremely popular and the Baroness is a highly desirable character. With more great figures on the way this one seems destined to stay popular.
Panthor at Point Dread from Masters of the Universe Mega Construx continues for its third week on the list. I'm really loving the Mega Construx MOTU line and this one is fantastic, especially because we get the Talon Fighter and Zodac! Woohoo!
Wayne "Beach Head" Sneeden from G.I. Joe: Classified Series is a newcomer this week. He's a review from early November but I'm wondering if all of the hype around the new reveals has fans checking for figures they missed out on. He's one of my favorites in the line thus far!
Well, that's all for this week. See you next week when we'll be into December and the Advent season!
