Nostalgia has been a big part of my toy-collecting habits as of late. Predator, Rambo, Dragonball Z, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (my biggest toy-love), and Masters of the Universe all take my money from me at every turn.

Here's our look at some of the coolest toy news of the past week!

THERE ARE PROBABLY DRUG ADDICTIONS CHEAPER THAN MASTERPIECE TRANSFORMERSBig Bad Toy Store has pre-orders for new Takara Masterpiece Transformers, including Bumblebee and Wheeljack!  I still await Galvatron, or at least an Hasbro-issued US Megatron I can afford.

THE BANKING DEAD!: Entertainment Weekly has a first look at the new "Walking Dead" Rick Grimes bust bank, though what good is money in a world overrun by Walkers?  Perhaps it could be used to contain batteries, or medicine, or something.  Y'know, it never pays to think too much about that series.
