I’ve just shared a little visual treat from the fine folks at Hasbro Toys who had recently unveiled the first wave of Marvel Legends Series action figures for the upcoming Marvel Studios film “Captain Marvel”. That post went over to the “Toys and Collectibles” section of PiercingMetal.com and you can see it by clicking HERE since those kinds of action figures get featured over there. Now its time to share the stuff that is aimed at the younger generation of female collectors (generally speaking of course). Check out the press news and the colorful images of these dolls and accessories down below.

Hello again my friends and “Welcome Back” to another exciting installment from the 2018 “Sweet Suite” that was held very recently over at the Pier 60 event space. As previously mentioned in Part 1 (seen HERE), this incredible event is organized by the folks at The Toy Insider and since there is a lot to see let’s get right on down to business with this mega-sized Iron Man playset from Hasbro. Isn’t it awesome? I think so.
As you might realize this is for the younger superhero fan in your family and something that will help them bring these movies and comic books into their playtime.
As I’ve done a lot over the past couple of years, I am continuing to share the alerts from the media resources behind some incredible toy companies in the hope that I spark all of our friends with kids of a certain age and of course those who just happen to find us. With that said here is the latest scoop from the Hasbro side of the fence regarding a program called “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic”. Check it out.
The Press Release:
Calling everypony (and creature) in Equestria — Twilight Sparkle’s School of Friendship is in session! On Saturday, March 24 at 11:30a/10:30c, Discovery Family premieres the eighth season of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC with 26 half hour episodes complete with seven original songs, new characters and tons of friendship!

Following the events of “My Little Pony: The Movie,” in the back-to-back season premiere episodes titled “School Daze Part 1” and “School Daze Part 2,” the Mane 6 discovers that the Friendship Map has expanded to show the world outside Equestria. Through two exciting original songs, Twilight Sparkle learns that friendship needs to spread beyond the limits of the kingdom and decides to open her very own School of Friendship.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: I think that they look terrific and I just love the vibrant colors along with their sizes and manner of articulation. Since so many of my friends have younger kids that LOVE the “My Little Pony” stuff, I can see where some of my Christmas Club money will be going in the coming months. As these get closer to their release date, I’ll check on Amazon.com and add the respective purchasing codes for those who are a little out of the way to get them easily. Hey we’re here to help after all. What do you folks with the little ones think of these? Let me know in the comments section below. By the way, it’s my pleasure to share with you that The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken will be in attendance at this years Toy Fair and its our eighth straight year exploring the trade show as a member of the press. Stay tuned to our Official Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the highlights as we see them. Until next time.
I’m a little late to the table about these Hasbro Toys “Star Wars: Forces Of Destiny” Adventure Figures since they were apparently discussed at the 2017 NY Comic Con. In my defense, I really don’t manage to hit any of the panels based on all the running around the overall convention that I am doing and the taking of about a thousand photos. If you doubt me just hit the PiercingMetal Instagram because its dizzying ;p – With that said, I am getting you all into gear as 2018 manifest and share a bunch of the images I downloaded from the folks at Amazon. These “Star Wars: Forces Of Destiny” Adventure Figures are going to bring your little ones playtime into far reaching galaxies for sure. Dig in.
I believe this is the first series of these figures and love how they are referred to as “Adventure Figures” as opposed to the “Action Figures” title that I am so very used to. Since I have shared both the packaged and out of the package images below, I don’t think I need to line out every figure. I’m fairly certain that readers of the website will recognize them immediately.
