Review – Marvel Legends – Walgreen’s Punisher

Walgreen’s has quickly become a pretty hot spot for toy collecting.  They have continually been getting some really good exclusives for Star Wars and Marvel Legends and more recently Transformers.  These often, though not always, aren’t just mild repaints or useless variants of other characters from a mass release, especially on the Marvel Legends side.   They also have started having a good track record of getting waves earlier than other retail outlets such as Wal-Mart and Target.  The Punisher here is one of those exclusive figures. This Punisher is such […]

Review – Movie – Speed Racer (2008)

The original Speed Racer anime series from the late 60s is one of the earliest Anime shows to be brought to the US.  Originally titles Mach GoGoGo in Japan, Speed Racer follows the exploits of Speed Racer (literally first name/last name) and his friends as they participate in races and adventures using the Mach 5 Super car.  Stylistically, especially at the time, it was quite unique, with it’s unique Japanese animation style and look.  Though live action adaptations of animated features don’t always work well, Speed Racer does it’s best […]

Legion – Chapter 1 – Professor Xavier’s Asylum for Insane Youngsters

Wowzers.  What a crazy show this is.  It’s kind of part of the “gimmick” here I suppose, given the main character is a paranoid schizophrenic.  Oh, and he’s also a Mutant, as in, X-men mutants. Legion is the latest Marvel property television series, based on the comic book of the same name.  It shows on FX, on Wednesday night.  It is not, however, part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s part of Fox’s X-men universe, which includes all of the X-men and Wolverine Movies, and Deadpool.  There’s not really any […]

Review – Transformers – Titans Return – Wolfwire (Weirdwolf)

The last entry in the line for Titans Returns Decepticon updates for the G1 Headmasters is Wolfwire.  In G1, Wolfwire was known as Weirdwolf.  There are all sorts of crazy reasons for name changes like this from rights ownership to names being slurs in other languages or even just because Hasbro decided that they don’t like the name Weirdwolf anymore. Weirdwolf, Wolfwire, whatever you want to call him, he’s definitely the best of the Decepticon ranks here.  He’s has nice pose ability in both modes, his weapons are both nice, […]

Agents of SHIELD S04E13 – The Search for May

Now that Coulson knows the truth about May and Radcliffe has the Darkhold, everyone’s on the hunt for Radcliffe.  There’s also a new Inhuman on the block this week, though probably not who anyone really expected. Daisy gets quite a bit of spotlight this episode as well, which is a pretty nice change.  She’s been kind of feeling a bit back burner this season in general, though that’s not really a bad thing considering she has been overly focused for the previous few seasons. Generally this was a pretty good […]

Review – S.H. Figuarts Sailor Mercury

Sailor Mercury is the second of the team behind Sailor Moon and the second to get a Figuarts.  She serves the brains of the outfit as well as the techie of the group.  She also has one of the lamest abilities in the history of people with abilities in any medium which involves throwing bubbles at her enemies.  Not even cool bubbles like say, Mega Man’s Bubble Man, but lame bubbles. She does gain some more powers as the series progresses though, themed around water and ice.  Plus her usefulness […]

Weekly Wednesday Haul – Clearance Heroes

Not a ton going on here this round, though I came across the Doctor Strange wave of Marvel Legends on clearance for $5 each.  I picked up Strange’s buddy Karl Mordo.  He’ll probably show up again later and these movie characters can be so hit or miss on if they gt a newer release, I figure he’s a good investment.  I also got a second Nico Minoru, because I feel like it would be a good base for some sort of fun custom. I also picked up some Megabloks Ninja […]

Review – From Dust (PC, PS3, Xbox360)

2011 – Ubisoft – One Player The Good Interesting Gimmick where you manipulate the world using literal God Power Eventually there is a sandbox mode, which is neat. The Bad The gimmick is way more limited than it is made out to be and the world tends to “right” itself The above makes a lot of the levels frustrating since you try to do X but it just sort of fails… By the time you unlock the Sandbox, you’ll hate the game play. In Depth Ok, I tried… I really […]
