Alien: Ripley addendum

Today's review of NECA's Alien 40th Anniversary Ripley action figure touched briefly on the use of photo-realistic paint for the figure's likeness.

On the left, the original 2015 release; on the right, the 2020 release. The difference is quite apparent, even before you click to view the full-sized image.

Vitruvian HACKS dig up some skeletons

Boss Fight Studio is offering a Deluxe Character Builder Kit to improve your Vitruvian HACKS.

No bones about it - this deluxe skeleton accessory set is super fun! The first accessory set built for use with the H.A.C.K.S. skeletons, this kit allows you to mix, match, and make your own skeleton characters!

Inside you'll find 6 amazing alternate heads, skeleton wings, two clothing options, 2 sets of alternate hands, 3 pairs of boots/shoes, a sword, and a sickle. WHEW - that's a lot!

The heads include a pirate with a bandana and eyepatch, a monster of some kind with small tusks pointing up from its lower jaw, a pointy demonic skull with horns growing from its brow, a bulbous alien, a goat skull, and a glowing jack o'lantern. The "clothing options" are a tattered shirt and loincloth. The pieces are painted to match an existing HACK skeleton, so you can easily design some cool monsters on your own.

Profit Director Destro addendum

Today's review introduced you to a totally wild Destro exclusive who took his inspiration directly from the original '90s "Pimp Daddy Destro." But it might not have, if Hasbro had chosen one of artist James White's other potential colorschemes:

Do you like any of the alternates? Would you have been happy if the toy had looked like them, or is it "original or nothing" for you?
