We haven’t done an official AFP Free Stuff Giveaway in a while, but this one was worth the wait (if we do say so ourselves!) Our good friends at Hasbro were kind enough to send us a Transformers Combiner Wars Devastator, and since we’re going to the big show ourselves, we want to do our readers a solid and give you a chance to win this big boy.
The unmasked version of the Marvel Select Ant-Man is available to pre-order now. Like the more widespread release, the 7-inch figure will come with his masked head, 3 pairs of interchangeable hands, and a 1.5-inch Ant-Man, but the unmasked Paul Rudd head will be exclusive to Marvel / Disney stores and will be featured on the figure in package. And bonus – it’s due to be released by the movie opening date of July 17.
Batman: Arkham Knight is out today, and by most accounts is amazing on the Xbox One and Playstation 4 and horribly crippled by a subpar port on the PC. But that doesn’t matter to us, right? We want the action figures for the latest (and perhaps last) Arkham game from Rocksteady.
Toys R Us also has the Rhino wave up for pre-order – they currently show up first when you search for Marvel Legends on the TRU site. While you can pre-order the figures individually, they’re $21.99 each – for all seven you’d be at $153.93 (with free shipping, though) so to me it really only makes sense if you’re going to cherry-pick the wave.

I am on the go a lot these days – almost as much as during my earlier days as a salesman and then as a consultant. Sure, instead of customer calls or client meetings, now I’m going to SDCC, Toy Fair, or other conventions, making the occasional real-world toy runs, and visiting family and friends all over the place. But whether it’s a day trip or much longer, what hasn’t changed is the need to take stuff with me – computer and camera gear, clothes, and the occasional action figure.
Because of all this, what I use to carry my stuff is nearly as important as the stuff itself. I want it to be easy to use and to protect the stuff inside. And, it doesn’t hurt if it looks good in the process.
