Back to the Future Part II Ultimate Doc Brown addendum

Today's review mentioned the difference between the movie's prop newspaper and the real one that was released six years ago. See if you can spot any (other than the size, obviously).

There are enough differences to make it clear that NECA used the false version (which, ironically, is the real-world version) as the source for Doc Brown's packaging. This is like when they based Bishop's shoes on mass-produced versions instead of the actual prop, or the incorrect version of the motion tracker. But neither of those got plastered right across the front of the box.

The Greaser Gang has been part of Transformers BotBots since the start. If you look at the map of the mall from back then, you'll see they hung out at a restaurant on the second floor and a hot dog stand on the ground floor - for whatever reason, you'll find today's 'bot falling off the roof of the cart.

Hot Wheels Character Cars Baby Yoda review

I miss the days when Hot Wheels Character Cars had text on the back of the cards. Yes, partially because it made my job easier, but also because it's just good toymaking. It can say more than "hey, remember Baby Yoda? He's back! In pog car form!" Which is more than I'm capable of, apparently. But then, I'm not a professional copy writer, just a dork with strong opinions and an actual work ethic. [Why do you write like tomorrow won't arrive? Why do you write like you need it to survive? Why do you write every second you're alive, every second you're alive? --ed.]

Transformers BotBots Crabby Grabby review

The odds that there's a furniture store in your local mall are pretty low: a mattress store, sure, but furniture? No, those are generally in an abandoned buffet restaurant across the parking lot from the mall. But the Transformers BotBots mall is weird, and thus we get the Home Rangers.
