Justitoys - Prototype WST Sixshot
To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of FAO Schwarz, its 5th Ave flagship store in NYC is presenting “A Gallery of Historic Toys,” featuring original G1 Transformers from 1984. Check it out online, too, at FAO.com.
This is the last picture in my queue. Just ‘cause.
They made a live-action Marsupilami movie? With Jamel “That guy from Amelie” Debbouze?
I don’t know what I did to get this lucky.
Seriously, I had an awesome first date with a girl taller than me, saw the awesome Ghost Rider 2 and found a boat load of toys.
Am I going to die?
So I got my hands on the prototype Portal gun at the New York Toy Fair this morning. I was told it would be closer to $150, not $120, and it’ll be ready mid to late this year. They’re not sure yet where it will be sold, put Toys R Us was mentioned as a possibility. It’s satisfyingly large, the handle feels good and the thumb toggle to change from orange to blue and back is intuitive, the trigger is a trigger… nothing to get excited or upset over. It feels cheap. It looks cheap. But it also looks easy to dismantle for bulking up and repainting to improve. Honestly though for the price that shouldn’t be needed. This one is not the finished product though, they will at least paint that inner core bit that should be black. Also the orange will be as bright as the blue and the sound effects which were weak should be louder and clearer. I wouldn’t say I’m disappointed, as I expected such flaws, so I’ll still be picking one up. But I can see a lot of unhappy fans that want perfection. Then again, considering the other game replica weapons I’ve seen, and for something this size with lights and sounds, the price is not bad and the cheapness is tolerable to make the price slightly more reasonable.
NECA, you aren’t even playing fair anymore.
Everyone else, go home.
