Bandai America and Power Rangers Split

Image
When you think of Bandai you think Power Rangers and vice versa.  That mindset must be altered come April 2019.  Why?  Will the license be picked up?  Who'll take it over?  All obvious questions, but the main thing we'd like our loyal fans here at Toy Talk Guys to remain is HOPEFUL!

To anyone that has listened to our podcasts it's no secret that we have a very serious, pleasurable, sick, but functional relationship towards Bandai America.  Countless times the company's produced amazing products for the impressively long run of 25 years.  They've also had their fair share of hiccups and don't look at me's. A comparable analogy for their success in recent years would be a little leaguer hitting a grand slam only to turn around and confusedly look at his parents with a "now what?" expression.  It's time for someone else to take a swing.

Bandai America's conceptions and products, in most cases, are not the problem.  The issues usually lie in d…

Jakks Pacific Real Workin' Buddies "Mr. Hosey" Teaser Tweet

Image
Jakks is attempting to bottle lightening twice following the successful launch of Mr. Dusty.  They're now introducing another member to their "Real Workin' Buddies" team, this time a fire engine, by the name of Mr. Hosey.  The company tweeted out a convincing photo depicting the new team member parked next to a red street curb.  This colored curb traditionally prohibits parking to anyone that isn't emergency service; i.e. Mr. Hosey.  Can anything be asked more of a teaser?

Not much information is known of him, but he has already started appearing on store shelves.  We're curious to see how he will be integrated into play considering Mr. Dusty already stands alone on a strange plane of post-play time.  Perhaps a water squirting action will be encouraging outside dirt clean up...then again that isn't an emergency service.

"Who wants to learn more about all he can do?!" is a titillating excerpt from the official tweet and the public response is gr…

Preview Packaging for Friday The 13th Accessory Pack by NECA Toys

Image
We were first teased with this accessory set back in San Diego Comic-Con 2017 and NECA has recently released images of the final box art.  Very exciting news for fans of the franchise, but considering what this pack contains it's more specifically geared towards the folks who like parts 3 and 6.


If you don't have any of your 7" scale Jason figures available to pose with these unique items you can easily tell the "Camp Crystal Lake" sign alone will steal the show.  The other larger piece included here is a dock platform complete with pole; Posing Jason behind this with his spear gun is essential.  Where NECA really out does themselves, as they tend to do, is with the most thoughtful piece of all being the rock and chain accessory complete with a now former, sunken, "Camp Crystal Lake" sign.  


Unlimited potential exists with this pack.  All we need is a victim.

New LEGO Star Wars Han Solo Movie Brickheadz Image Leaks

Image
It seems that just about every summer Star Wars set image has leaked so far. If you haven't seen our other post, definitely check it out: New LEGO Star Wars Summer 2018 Set Images Leak. The two Brickheadz below should release in Spring 2018 before the release of the Han Solo movie and cost $9.99 USD. While Han looks pretty good, Chewie leaves a little to be desired. What do you think? Let us know down in the comments.

LEGO 2018 Architecture Set Images Leak: Statue of Liberty and Great Wall of China

These two sets were shown off during the Nuremberg Toy Fair, but press shots were not allowed. Luckily someone was brave enough to snap a few photos during a slide presentation and post them on the internet. The images below are low-quality, but they give a good indication of what the final sets will look like. No details on pricing, release date, or piece counts yet, but we would expect these to be around $30-$40. Let us know what you think down in the comments.
