What’s to like about the TF Age of Extinction Deluxe Edition Strafe?
We are soooo freakin in love with those wings! We can’t get enough of them! 
We may not agree with his paint-job, but we love the blending from sky-blue to silver. 
We love their articulation that comes with them! 

But most of all we love the saw blade edges which is a fantastic addition/break-away from the traditional “Archangel” wings popularized by Warren Worthington III of the X-Men and the many incarnations of Gundams with wings that have come and gone.

Presenting the Arkham City Armored Batman from the DC Comics Multiverse Series.
Okay, this is the Armored Batsuit from the Batman: Arkham City video game. It’s been a while since we’ve played Arkham City, but we do not recall Batman having electric powered gloves til Batman Origins. He didn’t even have an Armored Suit.
But then we realized that that was because we only play Arkham City in the X-Box. A quick glance on the internet revealed that there was an Armored Edition of the game releaased for the Nintendo wii U. The game introduces us to the Battle Armored Tech (B.A.T. duh) - or an armored version of the Batman that allows players to build up an electrical charge in Batman’s gauntlets and release them in combat just as we saw in Batman: Origins.

Presenting the Hasbro Voyager Class Autobot Hound from the TF4 Age of Extinction Toyline.
Hound is one of the Dungeon’s most beloved characters from the Transformers series, and we have to admit to feeling a bit of anxiety after seeing his “Bayformer” version.
Yes we’re quite aware that these are not the Transformers from the 80s and that they had to be rebuilt for the movies. (Kinda caught up on that on the first movie.)
But no one can deny that the “Essences” of the characters were maintained.
So how will Hound be portrayed? We shall see quite soon.

Presenting General Grievous from the Star Wars Vintage Edition Series.
We have to admit that we really didn’t want to get this guy having been seriously disappointed with past General Grievous Action figures from other Star Wars series that…. just didn’t give him justice or capture how deadly General Grievous is - especially as depicted in Star Wars Episode III.
So we held off from buying General Grievous when he was on the stands. We didn’t bother giving him a second glance. That is until a particularly horrid day at work found us looking at him on sale on the toystands - the very last one available.
And we took him home.
Easily one of the best buys the Dungeon ever made.

Presenting the Catwoman action-figure from the DC New 52 Super Heroes vs Super Villains 7-pack.
SPOILER: Things should get interesting now that Forever Evil is finally over and - having had her love for Batman rejected (again) - Catwoman has decided to stop walking with the Angels, left the Justice League of America and has recommitted herself to a life of crime (But not after hacking her criminal record and totally distorting all digital records of her existence).
Also because apparently Bats and WonderWoman have this “connection” that neither Bruce nor the Martian Manhunter wanted to expound on.
We really don’t mind the change. Catwoman is supposed to be a solo-act anyway. An anti-hero lurking alone in the dark.

Presenting the Transformers Age Of Extinction (AOE’s) Slag - or as they put it, Slug.
Apparently Hasbro found out that one of the most common expletives in the Transformers Universe was the word “Slag!” If you visit the wiki page you can find this jewel of a curse: “Slaggit! The slaggin’ slag-faced motha-slaggin’ slagger slagged the slaggers!" So to avoid parental sensitivity issues, sometime back in 2011 when the Dinobots (Grimlock, Swoop and Slag) had to be released as a part of the Transformers Animated Series Cartoon and Toy Line, a lot of people missed that Slag had been renamed Snarl - which was a slap to the face of all us Snarl lovers (Snarl has yet to be avenged).
Also “Slag” in most parts of Europe means… well… “bitch.” So naturally Hasbro could not market Slag in Europe and had to change the AOE Transformer’s name to Slug - which some have pointed out refers instead to the solid part of a bullet instead of a slow shell-less terrestrial gastropod mollusc that can be tortured to death with copious amounts of salt. But seriously? The first thing that comes to your mind when the word “Slug” is mentioned is a bullet? Where did you grow up in? Bosnia? Afghanistan? Somalia?
So honestly? Marketing problem yes. Correct solution? Er….. We don’t think so.

Presenting the Takara AD01 Optimus Prime from the Transformers Age of Extinction Toyline.
We almost didn’t get the AD01 either given that early pictured depicted that the AD01 Takara and Habro Optimus Primes all had those blocky untransformed backs that reeked of budget cuts.
But he wasn’t as bad as the First Edition AOE Optimus Prime - who looks like he has a bed attached to his back (Here in the Philippines there are actually people who walk around peddling full size wooden Beds or shelves on their backs, the First Edition AOE Prime reminded us of them).
So we got him. And because everything Takara is better (Bias), we got the AD01 Takara Optimus Prime.
