Between moments of trying to salvage this pic of Hal Jordan and the one of that female ninja, I soothed my mind by gawking at Toy Fare 2007 photos. Seeng as how I wasn’t there and don’t have my own photos, I will utilize my Link-Fu Grip to hip you to the newness:

G.I.JOE: 25th Anniversary Collection – It’s as if Hasbro saw all the cool customs being done with Takara’s Microman and Microlady figures and said, “Hey… why don’t WE do that?” So they’re going to do it to it this year with 25 insanely articulated figures. If you want to see what the mock-ups/prototypes look like, I think it’s only appropriate that you check out the pics that a guy nicknamed “General Hawk” took and posted on this page.

Lego Batman: contrary to what many people on the internet will have you believe, not every fan can shell out over $70 for a set just for the minifigs that are exclusive to it. No, I don’t have the Batcave or Arkham sets or the delicious figures that come with it. As far as paying over $10 for figures from a Bricklink store? No. Luckily, Lego’s going to kick out some smaller sets that have the Riddler, the Scarecrow and the brand new Bane figure as well as a Batman with a dark blue/light grey color scheme! Booyah! Peep the gallery page on the ASM Zine site. Waiting until August will be tough, though. At least I should have the 25th Anniversary G.I.JOEs by then, so my pockets won’t be completely empty.
