Reviews added to the Review Archive – TRU Bench Press and Snow Serpent

I know there’s been some dead time with the reviews, but I’ve got a bunch in the hopper that I’m just going to kind of get out there whenever I can.  First up are reviews of the Toys “R” Us Headquarters for Heroes Bench Press and Snow Serpent.  I expected to love Bench Press (and did), but the Snow Serpent took me a little bit  by surprise.  Check out both reviews at the Rise of Cobra review page, or the links below.

Very nice images of Tunnel Rat/Monkeywrench and upcoming Bench-Press TRU Exclusive

Our man cmderinchief is back at it again, with some more breakdowns of recently released and soon-to-be-released figures!  Over at JoeBattleLines, he’s posted a couple of very nice galleries of the upcoming Tunnel Rat/Monkeywrench Wal-Mart 2-Pack as well as the not yet released Bench-Press Toys “R” Us Exclusive.  Check ’em out below!

Brendan Frasier is NOT Bench-Press

Big thanks to Mysterious Stranger who reports directly from San Diego ComicCon that he spoke with Hasbro reps on the convention floor, and they confirmed that Bench-Press is NOT Brendan Frasier’s “cameo” role in the film.  He also reports some other interesting information:

“Also, the figure was supposed to be the movie line Rock ‘n’ Roll but they had to change the name due to copyright issues.  Since they are now going into international territories with these figures the names have to clear internationally.  So Rock ‘n’ Roll wasn’t available somewhere and had to be changed.  Rather than just slap a new name on the figure they changed the character completely with a new bio, specialty and codename.  Unfortunately the Craig McConnel file name is an error on the card that got missed when it was produced.”

Thanks again to Mysterious Stranger for setting the facts straight.
