It’s not always easy to rally behind the Kickstarters that we hear about almost every day here at the Metal Media Command HQ, but this one was hard to avoid since it speaks to the diehard collectors and folks who count on my alerts in our Pop Culture features. I’ve just received the details on this awesome Transformers item “UNICRON”. Take a look down below to the press copy and the provided images.

That film doesn’t open until July and I anticipate will be dealing with whatever comes to pass from the soon to open “Avengers: Endgame”. Some of these items were observed at the annual Toy Fair but now its time to offer up a proper focus and product overview from the company. Let’s play.

We’re under a month away from the release of the long-anticipated Marvel Studio film “Avengers: Endgame” and its without question that I’ve been chomping at the bit about it here on PiercingMetal when ever any new clip or visual presents itself. For those just joining the website and its offerings, the stuff that’s come before about the film can be examined HERE. Clicking the text will launch a new tab with any reference to “Avengers: Endgame” that is currently online. Today, the fine folks at Hasbro revealed a wealth of images of the action figures that will be coming out for this film. I broke them up into sections in this post for you to peruse. Let’s begin.
I’ll start off with the Marvel Legends Series “Build-A-Figure” Collection which allows the collector to assemble a large scale Thanos based on parts of this action figure being in the packages of all the others in the series. Considering we have the packages visual I will not be typing all their names. You should also know most of them by now if you are a proper Pop Culturist like we are 🙂
The Toy Fair for 2019 begins tomorrow and as result of this massive happening for the Toy and Gaming Industry, the reveals from some of our favorite companies keep on coming. Here’s one of the latest updates from the folks over at Hasbro and without exaggeration, its super awesome. Take a look.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of both the TRANSFORMERS brand & the original Ghostbusters film.
When fans of the iconic Ecto-1 from the 1984 Ghostbusters movie look a little closer at this nostalgic interpretation of the car, they will be treated with a new “robot in disguise” named ECTOTRON, a converting Paranormal Investigator. The figure is packed in a G1-inspired box featuring classic tech specs and comes with its own proton pack and Slimer accessory, and converts between two modes in 22 steps – a seven inch Ecto-1 vehicle and a TRANSFORMERS robot.

Yesterday, Marvel Comics announced that 2019 was the year of their 80th Anniversary and that we could look forward to all sorts of things for our collection across the year. That notice can be found HERE for those who missed it. Hasbro Toys also shared that they would be getting in on the fun with the first two reveals from their Marvel Legends Series line of action figures. As you can see, the images are of the enigmatic telepath Professor X and the Merc With A Mouth, Deadpool. They look terrific.
