The Heart behind the Plastic

I’m not a huge fan of documentaries since they usually leave me feeling guilty and cynical about the future. But every now and then a show comes around that not only educates but somehow makes you feel better about the hobby you are already passionate about! The Toys That Made Us a Netflix original doc …

Number Forty-Three

Before the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked a hole in the world’s metaphorical speaker it would have been unclear as to who the most popular Marvel Superhero was; but after the movies its become painfully obvious that Mr.Stark has risen to the top of the shiniest of shiny heroes! With the new Avengers movie comes a …

Bigger on the Inside

The nerd universe is such a magical place, always expanding, evolving; there is always more nerd than any nerd can ever nerd! Instead of pacing back and forth waiting for the new Marvel and DC movies, and since a man can only take so much PowerRangers, I decided to give that Doctor Who show a …

Cosplayer Spotlight 01 : Paul

So often we see awesome cosplayers walking around conventions, looking all awesome and stuff, sometimes a bit intimidating. But we are brave nerds, we stop them and ask for a photo, thanks them, walk away. But who is the nerd behind the mask? What drives them? Why the heck are they dressed up in spandex? …

A New Recruit, A Familiar Face

At some point in the past years someone at Marvel wondered, “What If Spider-Man’s greatest enemy was combined with Peter Parker’s school bully?” Fortunately the idea to place the resulting character on the side of the angels also came around and so instead of a terrible Spidey-Pete hating villain we got a complicated hero, a …

I mean sure I realized they were different but it didn’t actually affect myself so it didn’t matter; whereas he hated …

There is no WHY in team!

Regardless of how much you dislike a character if they are on a team that you are collecting, you need to include them. Its a rule. You can sometimes try to substitute them for someone else, as team rosters do change, but you can’t just leave that slot empty. Why? Well, because you just can’t! …

Embrace the Dark Side!

As far as sci-fi goes I am not much of a Star Wars fan, though I do appreciate a good lightsaber battle. As far as prequels go I find the whole concept cheap and redundant; the SW Anakin-centered trilogy is no exception, but I do like the idea of a red faced, tattooed villain with …

Still #1 in my eyes!

There are villains you hate, villains you love, villains you love to hate, and villains you just don’t understand. When it comes to Bizarro that’s true on many levels; from his bizarre talk to his bizarre motives, its hard to tell if hes really “evil” or just plain backwards!  The new figure from DCC is …

A Shot at Amazing

In 2012 we were gifted with yet another Spider-Man movie, a reboot to the Sam Raimi trilogy that ended just 5yrs prior, really not enough time for anyone to even want a reboot. But it came, we all went to see it, mixed reviews, blah blah blah, long story short Figma just released an action …
