Today is Super Bowl 50 here in the United States, the “Big Game“, celebrating an epic battle between warriors with helmets. Well, we here at Toyark.com have helmets too. Ours have voice changers and chrome though. Hasbro released a higher end “Black Series” version of Kylo Ren‘s helmet from Star Wars The Force Awakens, designed for adults. It’s bigger, features a modulating voice amplifier, vac metal chrome and weathered paint apps. That’s all well and good but the main reason I got it is because it’s a great endcap for a Star Wars figure display. It’s perfect to position your Black Series figures around, adding height and something different to a 6 inch shelf. Let’s take a look after the break courtesy of Entertaintment Earth!

Hasbro and Mattel may be looking to shake up to toy world in a massive way! According to a report on Bloomberg Business, sources have said that the top two toy makers have held talks regarding a potential merger! According to the report, Hasbro approached Mattel in late 2015 with the idea of merging their two companies together. Snippets from Bloomberg:
Hasbro Inc. and Mattel Inc. have held talks about merging two of the world’s biggest toymakers, according to people familiar with the matter, in a deal that would bring together the owner of the My Little Pony and Furby brands with Barbie and Hot Wheels.
This is not the first time a combination has been talked about. Two decades ago — almost to the day — Mattel withdrew a $5.2 billion offer for Hasbro, citing an “intolerable climate” created by its competitor’s use of the media and politicians to fight the proposed takeover. Back then, Hasbro resisted the deal in what Mattel described as a “scorched earth” campaign to stop it.
A merger might not face that many antitrust hurdles because the U.S. toy industry is very fragmented, according to Jaime Katz, an analyst at Morningstar Inc. If combined, the companies would have probably about one quarter of the market in the U.S., she said.
Since then, according to the report, the two companies have held multiple meetings. The sources claim that these talks may ultimately lead nowhere, but nothing has been confirmed one way or the other. Details are extremely scarce at this time. You can read the full article Here.
Triton is a member of the Inhumans, and with Black Bolt and the rest of his cousins, he wandered the Earth in search of their fellow Inhuman, Medusa. They soon found her after Gorgon was sent by Maximus to bring her back, and Triton was with the group as they discovered the Human Torch in their hidden base alongside Crystal. He and Gorgon fought with Johnny, who eventually escaped and alerted the rest of the Fantastic Four. Then, with the rest of the Inhumans, Triton joined in a battle atop New York’s buildings against the Fantastic Four. But Mister Fantastic quickly discovered his suit of water that kept him submerged and tore it open. Triton was forced to flee the battle and dive off the New York docks, only to be shortly captured by the Seeker, who had also been sent to bring the Inhumans back to Attilan.
Ulik was a Rock Troll from the realm known as Nornheim, located underground within the dimension of Asgard. Rock Trolls had an undeniable hatred of Odin and the Norse Gods, due to Odin banishing them from the surface ages ago. The God of Thunder, Thor first encountered Ulik when Geirrodur, King of the Rock Trolls, commanded Ulik to steal Mjolnir, Thor’s enchanted hammer. Ulik was defeated by Thor in what would be the first of countless defeats at the hands of the Odinson.

The Model 1 suit of armor was created by Tony Stark, with the help of Ho Yinsen, when he was captured by a terrorist cell in Afghanistan while overseeing the testing of some weaponry. It worked as a pacemaker to keep Stark’s heart beating after shrapnel got lodged in his chest. The armor doubled as a means for Stark to escape captivity and avenge Yinsen’s death at the hands of their captors.
With great power, there must also come great responsibility, and when those in power abuse it, it’s the people’s responsibility to remove them. The year is 1933, and New York City is not-so-secretly run by corrupt politicians, crooked cops, big businesses…and suave gangland bosses like New York’s worst, the Goblin. But when a fateful spider-bite gives the young rabble-rouser Peter Parker the power to fight the mobster who killed his Uncle Ben, will even that be enough?
