OAFEnet Email Update for Thursday, November 19

The OAFEnet Email Update continues to exist.

  • JOE FRIDAY! You get a unique version of Duke, two re-uses of that killer Cobra Trooper sculpt, a BAT that looks like it will murder you in your sleep, and a darker Cobra Commander, plus a really cool missile launcher accessory straight from the cartoon. The backdrop is the overgrown bunker seen in the "Now You Know" promotional short from SDCC '08...
  • Booster Gold uses the "buff male" body, the same one used for Batman and Superman. The only new sculpting is the head, forearms, and gloves. There are actually two versions of this figure available - modern Booster Gold has the costume he's wearing in the comics, more or less, while the "classic" variant has a slightly different paint scheme... more

Yes, today HasbroToyShop is the prime example of a corporate store done right, but in the late '90s, we had HasbroCollectors. It featured unreleased figures...
  • Lego, like pizza and sex, has very few bad permutations. Last season's Mars Mission, for all its creepy aliens, was kind of plausible in its own way: if you stretched your mind a bit, you could imagine vehicles like those being deployed if NASA ever got really serious about extra-terrestrial colonization, and got a big enough budget to let their R+D go... more
  • Siliskk's body is a modified version of the queen's - she gets new smooth arms and her abdomen looks a bit thinner - Alluxandra is clearly wearing a shirt, evinced by the wrinkles and the large seam running down the center, but Siliskk's midriff is bare.
