Equipment: Hasbro at Toy Fair 2017 Coverage Part 1…Star Wars Black Series and More

Hasbro has always been one of my more nostalgic DSCN5582stops at Toy Fair. I grew up with playing with G.I. Joes and Star Wars figures so seeing these toys brings back memories of a simpler time.

Vids: Check Out the Prologue to ALIEN: COVENANT

Alien: Covenant is the latest installment of the alien-film-header-v6-front-main-stagevery popular Alien franchise.

There is also a really good chance that (spoilers) people are going to die. Personally  I can’t wait for the release. Continue reading
