When I’m choosing what to review, I gravitate towards toys I like or figures I want to get done while folks are still talking about it. It usually works great, but it causes some figures I don’t particularly care about to fall off the radar. Enter Batman Legacy Wave One.
I felt lucky about this year’s SanDiego Comicon exclusives. Usually I’m scrambling to get five or six, but this year I only wanted three: two of MOTU Classics Queen Marlena and a Monster High Deadfast Ghoulia. Not only were they both incredibly easy to get, but I spent a lot less.
I know. Apache Chief is late for Apache Chief Week. But he's the star, right? Give the guy some slack!! Okay, it’s really me that needs it! It’s been a difficult week for DC Universe Classics Collectors and it’s been similarly difficult for me to work on these reviews.
Apparently Stay Puft is so damned big that our SDCC orders won’t even begin shipping until the 9th. Which makes me wonder who we’ll get first, Marlena or Man-E-Faces? Oh well, at least we’ve got Clawful here to keep you MOTU fans happy. (There’s also that mysteriously aloof Weapons Rack, right Noisy?)
You may not know Baragon, but he’s important. He fought (and lost) to a giant Frankenstein in Frankenstein Conquers the World (I have no idea why Frankenstein was huge). Later on, Baragon would return to fight Godzilla in Destroy All Monsters. He’s also appeared in five video games dating back to Nintendo’s 1988 Godzilla: Monster of Monsters. Not bad, but that’s not why he’s important either. Baragon is important because he’s the first Godzilla character in Revoltech’s new Sci-Fi line.
I was going review the Map of Eternia, but yesterday, I made my daily visit to AFP and was blown away. Samuron & his wife put together an amazing device that lets you explore Eternia. Even if you don't care about the map, it's just fun to play with! I'm…
Well, it’s finally happened. I’m writing a movie review for IAT. Those of you that have been hanging around on the forums know me, but I’m mostly a behind-the-scenes member. This weekend, however, Vault and I wandered over to the local Cineplex to see How To Train Your Dragon.
I have to admit that I was excited to see it. Anyone that knows me can attest to the fact that I will watch anything whatsoever if it’s animated. And How To Train Your Dragon had the added bonus of 1) being bookended by narration (which I’m a sucker for – from Pete and Pete to Arrested Development) and 2) starring an animal companion that just about broke the cuteness meter. I knew I had to see this film.
I should note that I’m not a fan of tossing 3D onto movies for no apparent reason, but I was willing to watch Dragon even if it meant paying the equivalent of an extra ticket.
