Joe and the rest of Hasbro Toons stream to Vimeo…

Most of us were curious as to the fate of G.i.Joe , Transformers and a few others of our beloved classics as they slowly started to disappear from Netflix. Well it looks like we may finally have our answer.

Deadline is reporting that Hasbro has made a deal with online video service Vimeo. Vimeo often thought of as the poor man’s Youtube, has been trying to break from the public’s perception not just expanding their available catalog but also offering original programming.

Joe Ahearn and Ed Catto Talk to Action Figure Fury!

Action Figure Fury sat down with Joe Ahearn and Ed Catto for an interview, regarding the Captain Action franchise!

There’s a lot of great information about their various figures and comics, and the following information will be of interest to collectors of 4″ action figures!

AFF: Zica Toys has been promoting their 1/18th scale line as shipping in Summer 2015. Are we close to the release and will the first wave see Captain Action and the release of the Silver Streak?

Joe Ahearn: One of the coolest things about working with the team from ZICA is the Silver Streak they are developing for the line. As you probably know, the Silver Streak was Captain Action’s version of the Batmobile. It was an imaginative collectible and is still very sought after by vintage collectors. One thing that always bothered us, however, is that the Silver Streak looked long and sleek in the packaging illustrations, but the actual toy vehicle was a bit stubbier. We’ve worked with the gang from Zica to rectify this, and the new Silver Streak will more accurately reflect the idealized version from the packaging. (No pun intended.) And as its sculpted digitally, we’re plotting behind the scenes to figure out the best way to create a 1/6th scale version of it somewhere down the road.

We’re also planning additional characters for this line, including Dr. Evil and Lady Action. The Lady Action will be highly anticipated, we feel, because we’re designing an alternate outfit for her as part of this line.

Captain Action discussion!

CobraIsland Plays … with Transformers!

Let’s be honest this is CobraIsland, we’re not as up tight as the Suits in Springfield. While our mission of world domination is clear the general Island population are Vipers and Vipettes here to take a vacation from all the Blue and Red lasers, to chill on the beach and try not to think of Joes. They like to think sometimes of other things that they enjoy and PLAY!

Today CobraIsland Plays … with Transformers!
