Thanks to FMH who have posted news and images of the Transformers Prime Decepticon Frenzy deluxe class action figure. This is a repaint of the Rumble figure with a new head sculpt and red and black color scheme. While everyone expects there to be a Rumble repaint, it is not announced at this time so it is not known if this will be a Takara Tomy and or Hasbro release. Check out the images for more details on Transformers Prime Frenzy below.

Thanks to the ever prolific Benscollectibles, we have another in-depth video this time for the just released Transformers Fall of Cybertron Voyager Blaster and Steeljaw action figures. According to Ben, these toys are "Fantastic!" Watch the review below to get the scoop on these new Generation toys now.
Every once in a while, you get a toy with ideas or executions that just come out really well. The unfortunate part is when those good aspects are buried with things that work so much more poorly that they act disproportionately to sour the overall impression of the toy. That's kind of what happens with Kickback. Read the full review.
If you have been reading the BAT-BLOG for awhile then you know we have this good friend named BATMOBILLY who is one of our Ace Bat-Reporters! This guy is a very serious Batman Toy Collector who's main focus is the famous Batmobile! Well, he told me the other night that he has been spotting this new Hot Wheels 1966 Batmobile on eBay so we should all expect to see these in stores either right now or very soon. This is a different version of the car with a clear windshield & a few other new tweeks.
Now, we did a post a few days ago about this car and the packaging is totally different. So, Mattel is not only making re-issues of this car but there are also variations on the packaging, argghh, really? To read that and see the other pic, just CLICK HERE!
Just in time to spread some holiday cheer!! Hey Bat-Fans, check out this amazing photo sent in to us by a long time Bat-Blog Fan ( You can click it for a larger version ). This toy is going to be a surprise for a very lucky kid on Christmas morning!! Thanks Louie for sharing this fun pic & WOW, what a great memory this is going to be!! His e-mail explains it a lot better, so here it is:
I found this Batmobile on Amazon and it had these awful stickers so I removed them and added the1966 Batmobile vinyl emblems.
My Grandson, Joshua, is a year old so this Batmobile being remote controlled is just perfect.
Thank you for reading,
Thanks to Hobbybase who have posted yet more in-hand images of the Asia exlusive Transformers United Seeker Aces set being released by Takara Tomy, Check out yet more images of United Starscream, Skywarp, and Thundercracker out of the box in their robot and alternate jet modes. These figures will be released in Asia only (excluding Japan) next month, January 2013. Get a look at the images of the Transformers United Seeker Aces set below.

Oshawa, ON December 22 2012 -They were sometimes poorly made, had little to no relation to the license attached to them and you probably likely don’t remember what happened to them after you convinced your parents to get it. Still, lower cost Rack Toys are an essential element to any happy childhood as evidenced by [...]

When it comes to shopping for kids, toys are always on the top of the list, especially right now. And experts say the toys you pick could directly impact your child’s development.
Wave must be doing something right because, despite their diminutive size, lack of major details and just being rather plain boring, the beach queen line is going from strength to strength and this months magazine scans show us the next additions to the line.
Girl of the moment, Asuna from Sword Art Online gets her Beach Queen debut and Chiyu from Accel World joins her as well. Finally, Miho from Girls und Panzer brings up the rear with a custom and rather cute base which seems rather fitting for her. Sand Tank!!! And a little bit of news sneaks in with Miho! It seems that her teammate, Hana, will be joining her next in the Volks Charagumin line later in 2013.
For now Chiyu and Miho are planned for a June and July release. Miho will be a little more expensive though, no doubt due to the base but no words on when pre-orders are expected to open. Can't imagine that you have to wait too long though,
