Announces marriage in To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness home Jump Square
It's been a good summer for me and new toys, as two lines based on retro properties came out and tickled my fancy (better than last summer's zero).
This week's is a slightly bigger deal to me as it's based one of my absolute favourite movies of all time, 1980's cinematic adaptation of Flash Gordon.
Indepth photo review, a contest and some scant blathering after the jump.
First, my thoughts, as a kid I was pretty upset we never got these on shelves, so this is wish fulfillment.
What I like best about these is that BifBangPow! didn't follow the "What would Kenner do in 1977" esthetic but chose to make figures in a vintage style. I noticed ZICA's name on the package, who made those awesome 3 3/4" Six Million Dollar Man figures last year.
So what we get is an action figure line that looks like another player in the toy game in 1979 be it LJN, Mego, Multiple, Ideal etc snatched this license and made figures hoping to catch some Star Wars heat.
I'm a toy history nerd, so this brings me more joy than it probably should.
Enough chatter from me, judge for yourself and don't forget, there is a contest at the bottom.
It was bothersome to remove these from the card, they're nice!
Everybody has a nice little extra.
The inclusion of Ming's robot is a nice touch.
It's pants wettingly great to finally have a Brian Blessed Vultan action figure.
Some fill in homies from the Filmation line.
Ming's bowling league of Evil.
The whole gang together.
A gathering of good guys I only wished I could have put together in 1980.
Thanks to our pals at Entertainment Earth I'm giving away one of these cool SDCC Flash Gordon and Ming Sets.
To Enter, simply send your name and your favourite Flash Gordon character to me at kid70s*at*gmail.com (replace the *at* with an @) and I'll announce the winner next Friday!

YouTuber Silver Knight has posted a TV spot from Brazil for the RID Happy Meal toys! Besides featuring a pretty nice CGI Bumblebee, the ad features the four choices available: the Sideswipe and Grimlock toys from the US promotion, and Bumblebee and Optimus Prime facemasks. In fact, I'd say they're more tiaras based on how they work. Click through to watch the ad!
