Jet Packing around Disney World to Find Cool Rocketeer Stuff

Posted on: August 29, 2017

These days it’s tough to find cool Rocketeer collectibles. While Funko has released some items, pickings are often few. However, recently I found a dew while on vacation in Disney World.  There were three that I noticed, exclusive to the parks, each with different prices.

The first was a Rocketeer “Mickey Ear” which is basically figurines of Mickey Mouse designed to be something else, in this case, The Rocketeer. Priced for under $20.00 this came in the Movieland Series No. 1 & is packed with other Mickey Ears designed like Tron, The Shaggy Dog, Jack Sparrow, V.I.N. CENT from Disney’s The Black Hole & even a diver from Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

They each come blind boxed, so even though the Rocketeer is on the box this doesn’t mean you’ll get him.  Also, if you think opening the box while no cast member is looking will tell you who’s inside this won’t work either.  The figures are sealed in a foil bag.

Your best bet is to check the weight of each box. The heavier the box the more likely you’ll get either The Rocketeer, V.I.N. CENT or the diver from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The lighter the box you’ll most likely get The Shaggy Dog, Tron or Jack Sparrow.

The next item I saw is part of Disney’s D-Tech merchandise, which is custom phone cases, one of which is The Rocketeer. While I didn’t get the price (I figured it would be costly), it did look pretty cool. I was little leery bout getting one of these since smart phones constantly change & old phone cases never fit, so I didn’t get one, but I do think that even if this is the case, you’ll still have a pretty cool exclusive collectible.

Finally the last thing I saw was this piece of art work of Mickey Mouse as The Rocketeer by artist Mike Peraza. You could buy this separately as a print for under $30.00 or framed like this for close to $400.00

While it isn’t much, it’s great to still see The Rocketeer flight high in Disney World.

Mondo TMNT Michelangelo figure review

Posted on: August 24, 2017

The latest figure from the Mondo Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle collection is the party chucker himself, the Michelangelo 1:6 action figure.  Michelangelo is based on the original Ninja Turtle’s look from the Eastman and Laird black and white comics.  Like most of the figures in this series there are two versions of the figure, the Monodo exclusive which comes with two pizza slices and a regular version that does not include the slices.  (We will be reviewing the regular version).

Mondo continues to release these figures in a sturdy bookend box where the cover opens to reveal the figure and his accessories through a window.  As with all of the figures in the line, the box features the same artwork on the back from illustrator James Edmiston.  The front cover displays Michelangelo in a action pose with his cartoon signature color in the background.

Opening the front flap of the box you can see a “Blueprint” of the figure, his main weapon the nunchakus and Lil’ Orphan Alien.  On the right side you see the double tray holding the Michelangelo figure with accessories:  Ray gun, baby turtle, alternate head, throwing stars, grappling hook, alternate hand and Lil’ orphan Alien figure.  (The Mondo Exclusive will include two slice of pizza).

All of the figures in this line are in the 1:6 scale which the figure measures to about 10 inches.  The sculpt is based on the same Turtles’s body but with different skin tones and washes. Prototype of the Turtles’ sculpt

Michelangelo’s skin tone is a little darker than that of Leonardo’s skin tone but not as dark as Donatello’s.  There is a dark wash which highlights the different details on his chest.  Again the body sculpt is the same throughout every figure in this series so the articulation is exactly as it was in the previous figures.  The figure has articulation in the shoulders, elbows, hands, double articulation on the knees and includes rocker joints on the feet.  This is a solid figure with a little weight but the feet are the appropriate size to hold the figure upright without any assistance.  The hands are tight enough to hold onto all of his accessories.  His joints are tight and I really didn’t have any problems or concerns posing him like I did on the Donatello figure.

 

 

The head attaches onto a ball that is at the top of the body and you have a choice of posing the figure with the Comic (Red bandanna) or the cartoon (Orange bandanna) similar to Leonardo and Donatello.

Comic Head

Cartoon Head

It seems that Mondo has heard about the troubles that some collectors have had with their Donatello and Leonardo heads and have responded with a change in Michelangelo.  (Leonardo and Donatello heads were very difficult to put on the body and pose them.  Some people have complained that the heads would just fall off when posing).  Instead of using a hard plastic for the head Mondo has changed the head to a almost rubbery plastic head.  These new heads are a very nice change to the overall figure with easy attachment and removal.  Posing the heads are so much easier and they remain attached even when you move the heads to the right or to the left.

The figure as you can see covers up the neck a lot more than the previous figures.  It kind of makes Mikey look more like a body builder.

The belt around his waist is made out of the same sturdy plastic that the other figures utilize.  Now unlike Leonardo and Donatello, Michelangelo does not come with any holders on his belt to store his Nunchakus.  There are spaces on the sides of his body which you can use to store his weapon when not in use.  However I would caution this only because of the trouble with the previous released figures’ belts.  The belts are pliable but they are fragile as well.

I’ve said this before in my previous reviews, I love the custom choices this series offers collectors and Mikey does not disappoint with his accessories:

Nunchakus (His signature weapon)

They’re made from the same plastic as his belt which makes them extremely flexible and are tied together with a real chain.

 Climbing Spike Hands

 (2) Sets of Throwing Stars

Ray Gun

Grabbling Hook

Now I’ve heard from collectors that they had trouble switching the hands, I did not have any trouble changing the hands.  All I simply did was rotate them back and forth while using light pressure to pull them out.  I used the same technique to attach the new hand.

Mikey also includes little extras such as…

 Lil’ Orphan Alien

He appeared in Michelangelo micro series issue 1

Baby Turtle

He also includes a “Surfer, hang 10” hand that will be shown later

 

The only quality issues I found with this figure is very minimal and may not even be on  your figure but there were two paint smudges.

 If you look closely you can see a smudge on the teeth.

The next was on a bandanna.

Again these are very minimal paint smudges and I only mention them because of the $150.00 price tag these figures command.

 

Michelangelo looks great in this line and has made me more excited to get Raphael to complete the line.  The paint smudges aren’t even a big deal to me, I could correct those problems myself.   I love the improvements that Mondo has made to the heads and joints which proves that they are concerned about their products and fans.  The playability with this figure is an improvement and I look forward to changing his pose every so often when I have a minute to myself.

Have fun with this figure and I will be back with Raphael (hopefully) soon.

“Cowabunga!!!”

Ghostbusters II games from Cryptozoic

Posted on: August 15, 2017

Lake Forest, CA – August 9, 2017 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, along with Ghost Corps and Sony Pictures Consumer Products, today announced the August 23 release of Ghostbusters: The Board Game II. Following up on the acclaimed first game, this massive standalone expansion has 1-4 players taking on the roles of the Ghostbusters as they investigate the Mood Slime that has flooded New York City, causing earthquakes and riots in an attempt to bring Vigo back. Inspired by the Ghostbusters movies, comics, and toylines, the game has players taking on the Scoleri brothers, riding the Statue of Liberty, and battling through Vigo’s Ghost army. It features highly detailed miniature figures based on original designs by Dan Schoening and an original story by Erik Burnham, both veterans of IDW’s Ghostbusters comic book series.

 

It’s an honor to bring the Ghostbusters universe of film, toys, cartoons and comics into a game once again,” said Adam Sblendorio, Vice President of Creative at Cryptozoic.

In addition, two expansions for the game will be available September 20. Louis Tully Plazm Phenomenon: Expansion Pack adds Louis Tully, the Ghostbusters’ bumbling accountant and lawyer, and four new Scenarios to the game, as well as Entities like Titanic Ghosts, the Theatre Ghost, and the Giga-Plazm. Slimer Sea Fright: Expansion Pack makes Slimer part of the team as the Ghostbusters take on the fearsome skeleton crew led by the Ghost pirate Captain Jack Higgins in four new Scenarios.

 

Ghostbusters: The Board Game II is an episodic board game in which players battle paranormal Entities, seal Gates that leak Ghosts, investigate giant pockets of negatively-charged Slime, and use Ghostbusting Equipment, as they try to save the world yet again. Equipment Cards offer an array of powerful Weapons, devious Traps, magical Tomes, and helpful Utilities that can be used to win. Each Ghostbuster has Actions that can be used during a player’s turn to fight Entities, move, drive the Ecto-1a, deposit Ghosts into the Spirit World, place Extracted Plazms into the Ecto-1a’s Ecto-Tank, switch between different types of packs, and remove Slime from Ghostbusters.

Each Scenario takes place in various locations in an apocalyptic New York City built from map tiles and plagued by mind-altering Mood Slime, menacing Ghosts, and unrelenting Plazms. Campaign Mode links multiple Scenarios for a deeper, story-driven experience.

Cooperation is a key part of the game: Teamwork, planning, and resourcefulness are needed since players win or lose as a team.

Ghostbusters: The Board Game II will be available at retailers nationwide August 23 for a suggested retail price of $90. The two expansions—Louis Tully Plazm Phenomenon: Expansion Pack and Slimer Sea Fright: Expansion Pack—will be available September 20 for a suggested retail price of $30 apiece.
