I’ve always wanted some more TF X Joe crossover toys, but now that Joe has moved to the 6″ scale, I wasn’t happy to see a refocus on O-rings. Even when I was collecting 1:18th, I preferred the latest articulation and sculpting detail.
I decided to whip this up as a fun alternative take based on the existing molds. I shared this on fb earlier in the year, but am just now getting to do it here.
In the latest episode of the Nerdrahtio podcast we discuss Joe’s past work with Sideshow (including an unreleased pimp daddy Destro) Mondo (, the1/6 scale turtles) and his ongoing work on The Loyal Subjects action vinyl lines.
You can listen via the embedded player below or find us on Stitcher and Itunes using the drop down menu above. Be sure to keep scrolling down to find links to our image galleries as well as some text notes from the interview.
Clutch was revealed via Nerdrahtio on time while I was behind on editing,this podcast should have come along with it. Expected to be open window boxed or classic closed box , but obviously won’t be a blind box.
Want to get a non chase Baroness? Will red or blue do ?
No official announcements, but keep an ear out for Thundercats as it is a very strong possibility. (Update, thundercats ARE happening!)
Due to licensing TLS does not have the rights to do vehicles for TMNT and it’s not likely they can do playsets either. Tell playmates you want them to be allowed to!
Upcoming figs are designed to be workable with their vehicles and animals, and while it may not be true for the turtles you should be able to get a Joe on battlecat or he-man in your vamp.
Power Ranger wave 2 will still be MMPR, still working on how to get the individual zords to combine!
BONUS UPDATE: Jonathan Cathey has confirmed Street Fighter will have knee articulation and “be like Joe”
We interviewed him awhile back HERE but Hot Topic has a short video interview you should check out below. It has some great clips from their Transformers vs. Joe webisodes.
I can honestly say that Jonathan is legit. The company gives artists a lot of credit, he shares the credit, brags on others, lifts others up rather than puts them down, owns his mistakes, listens to fans, and clearly has passion. I have a couple of favorite small companies out there, but it’s very easy to root for TLS.
This is the Megatron Optimus Prime Fears. First voyager class transformer purchase in years and by far my favorite rendition of the character. G1 inspired, but with a imposing tank mode. Check out the Dio Shot, then full video below.
The Loyal Subjects Official Facebook group has revealed a ton of images of the upcoming Exclusives in their action vinyls lines. (CLICK THAT AND JOIN FOLKS, it’s full of great stuff and gets news first, it’s closed for those of us who don’t like public groups too!)
First up lets look at their pile of SDCC Loot (minus one turtle set)
Metalic Rita and Pink ranger, Yellow Constructicons, Buzzsaw and transparent frenzy, an opened package TF and 3 rangers, and not just the TMNT box set shown (that’s battle damaged) but another one too !
Winner of the SDCC stuff in my mind. May actually be my favorite exclusive from the entire show this year.
The latest video is up on our youtube channel, check it out below! I pull a loyal subjects Transformers blind box, and although I didn’t get the one I was hoping for, I was impressed. This was my first TF from the Loyal Subjects, would you like to see more? -Sam
