Marvel Universe Scarlet Spider Review

I know a lot of Spider-Man fans like try to forgot the whole Clone Saga ever happened, but I was excited to see Scarlet Spider made in to a Marvel Universe figure because I like Ben Reilly's Scarlet Spider costume way better the one he wore when he was Spider-Man. Ben's body is a recolored mold of MU Black Costume Spider-Man, but with a new head and added thigh-cut articulation, with new non-sculpted-on removable equipment of he's jacket vest, web-shooters, belt, and ankle pouches. Scarlet Spider's unpainted red body really stands out with the separate rubber jacket and other floating accessories, awesome design idea there Hasbro, Scarlet Spider is a great action figure and I highly recommend him to Marvel Universe collectors.

Marvel Universe Commander Steve Rogers Review

When Steve Rogers returned from he's apparent death he let he's former partner Bucky continue on as Captain America while he became the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.. I love this costume, I'm ecstatic we got it in both Marvel Universe and Marvel Legend scale, the costume perfectly displays "I'm no longer Captain America, but I am still the world's one and only Super Soldier". Commander Rogers is super fricking articulated and is a completely brand new body sculpt, figures like this and Cable give me high hopes that the Marvel Universe line is definitely getting better and better with time, way to go Hasbro.

Prometheus Trailer!!!

Wow, it wasn't the same as the leaked trailer I saw, but still brain melting freaking awesome. You can't say this not a prequel to the original 1979 Alien movie, you can clearly see that is the derelict ship and the Space Jockey. So that means that sunny clear sky planet is LV-426, can't wait to see what happens in the movie that worsens the atmosphere.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Trailer

I haven't read the Hobbit, hell I didn't even like Lord of The Rings until I saw Fellowship of The Ring on Starz one night, but I know this movie will be a perfect cinema masterpiece just like the LotR trilogy because Peter Jackson himself is back as director, producer and writer. Gollum at the end was the absolute best part of the trailer, and damn Gandalf looks EXACTLY how he looked in Fellowship, perfection. I wonder if this trailer is footage from both movies or just part 1?

Crimson Dynamo & Titanium Man Review

Good move on Hasbro's part for the vague bio on the back of Crimson Dynamo's card because this particular armor is the sixth Crimson Dynamo Valentin Shatalov. Personally I think Valentin's suit makes the best 6in. action figure and Hasbro perfectly recreated it in plastic here, straight out the comics right down to the non-symmetrical designs on he's shoulders, superb attention. He's only accessory is the same exact projectile launcher that has come with nearly every Iron Man movie figure, but who cares he's an awesome highly poseable figure.

Titanium Man has always been Boris Bullski here sculpted in he's most current armor. Like Dynamo, T-Man comes with a repackaged projectile weapon which originally came with the movie version of Titanium Man now painted the same color green as he's armor. I really have to hand it to Hasbro, sometimes they skimp out and do repaints or part mash-ups but with Crimson Dynamo and Titanium Man they went all out with completely new sculpts with no shared parts between them phenomenally painted and detailed, if you collect 6in. Marvel figures and you see either or both of these guys at retail pick them up, they're fricking outrageously overpriced online.

The Dark Knight Rises Trailer!!!

So I'm getting this from the trailer: Bruce Wayne has hid himself away in some dingy underground prison for the last 8 years or less 'til Bane shows up kicks he's ass and says I going to go destroy Gotham with all the same weapons and skills you have and that maybe Batman should return and try and stop him to show that he's the protector of the city and has become man then a man, that he's one man war on crime has made him a legend, and perhaps maybe a legacy that can be pass on to another.

Prometheus Poster

My anticipation for this is astronomical, I can not wait to witness the origin of the Xenomorphs and the Space Jockey. I think I actually want to see this movie more then even The Avengers or The Dark Knight Rise next year. I've seen a leaked cam-recorded trailer, and it was spectacularly mind blowing, and as soon as a official high-quality trailer pops up it will definitely be posted here.

New Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance Trailer

Definitely looks like Ghost Rider gonna be way more brutal this time around. If the kid Danny last name is Ketch, hopefully this movie will end with him being set up to be the next Ghost Rider to give a new protagonist from the next film. I am glad they keep Blackout very close to he comic look, I wounder if they snuck in any other Ghost Rider villains at least name-wise, like Deathwatch.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Trailer

YES! Storm Shadow is back, and it looks like they're given Snake Eyes way more action this time around. Looks like they kill off Duke at the beginning, good, Channing Tatum was a horrible actor. With the Rock the franchise now has some star power behind it. Cobra Commander in he's face-plate helmet, and a better mask for Snake Eyes, my checklist for a better movie is complete.

"and you will call me Commander!"

Justice League: Doom Trailer

Based on the the JLA story arc "Tower of Babel" written by Mark Waid. The only thing I don't like is they changed who is on the league, Cyborg instead of Aquaman, and Hal Jordan instead of Kyle Rayner, and no Plastic Man. I can understand that they wanted to go with the original seven, but it's not, Cyborg is only just now on the Justice League in the DC "New 52" taking Martian Manhunter's spot cause he's on Stormwatch. I can't complain about Hal Jordan being there cause he's being voiced by Nathan Fillion, and I not gonna miss Plastic Man.

Justice League: Doom with be out on DVD and Blu-Ray February 28th.

Marvel Universe Extremis Iron Man & Wolverine

Iron Man's armor before he's current "Bleeding Edge" armor was the "Extremis" armor thanks to the Extremis nano-virus which allows Tony to liquify and store the gold under-armor inside he's bones, and techno-kinetically call forth the outer red armor, all which is directly connected to Tony's mind and nervous system which he controls as a second skin, and can cyberneticly interface with any other technology. The figure is painted in a incredible metallic dark red that perfect assents the gold pieces, and I have to give Hasbro high praise for the painted in panel lines that bring out the sculpted details. The only real negative point I have with this figure is he's leg articulation at the hip, the don't move at all, the legs are on the ball joints so tight that if played with could snap, real poor design there, and again I hate the stupid funnel energy blast.

Yay, my first Marvel Universe 3 3/4 inch Wolverine shown here wearing an X-Men training uniform which the entire team wore for a short while to have a uniform look but when the original X-Men came back and the Blue and Gold teams were formed, Logan went back to he's brown and tan costume. This is actually the running change second release of this figure, he's first release have different less detailed head, I like the detail on this one, but I would liked him gritting he's teeth over he's somber look he has. Wolverine's one low mark is he's legs, he's legs move great at the hips in all directions but when aligned straight are still at an angle making he's feet not touch the ground flat which makes him difficult to stand up and falls over easily, legs could of used a calf twist Hasbro.

U.S. Agent: I was the only other 90's character he had in this scale.

Mass Effect 3 "Holy Shit" Trailer!

That... That was pure freaking visual uber-joy to my eyes, do I even want to start speculation what the hell that was that teleported in front of Shepard while he was running? It just under 4 months away, and I already have it pre-ordered. So close... so close... so close...

New Dark Knight Rises Poster

JAW DROPPING!!! This poster reenforces my belief that Batman just might die in this movie, be it "Batman" or actually Wayne himself to defeat Bane. From what I have seen and heard from the cast and crew it seems Bane is more then just a villain for Batman to take down but is doing what he's doing in the movie to bring Bruce to realize that not just Gotham City but the whole world needs him to be a symbol and to understand that he is Batman now and forever, and that he must commit himself 100% fully, never doubt, never give in or give up, complete and total devotion to he's mission even if it kills him. So Bruce will have to take him out using he's mind, body, and resources without killing him and prove to Gotham that the city needs him, and if he can't then he was not worthy to be this new symbol and dark guardian. If he does die I have this feeling that he'll be grooming Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character John Blake (If that's he's real name winkwink) to he's way of thinking throughout the movie and have him start to understand that Gotham needs a Batman and Bruce would be leaving him clues to he's secret and he's legacy to pass on to someone younger, now that would be a hell of a dramatic ending.

New Battleship Trailer!

Wow, I am definitely fricking intrigued. Looks like Transformers meets Nu-Star Trek meets Independence Day. Who ever thought a movie based on a board game would be this awesome, I'm now interested to see a epic war movie based on Risk.

New Amazing Spider-Man Poster

I got high hopes for this movie, that this Spider-Man was be of quality up there along with Iron Man and Thor. I'm just hoping this untold story thing isn't some way of making this movie a "in-between-queal" or a pseudo-squeal like Incredibe Hulk is. I really want it to be a complete brand new origin with no connection to the Raimi movies, and please, please let him be wise-cracking Spidey.

Blood-C: The Last Dark Teaser

I have seen and love Blood: The Last Vampire and Blood+, haven't watched Blood-C yet. I don't know if this movie is a sequel to the Blood-C TV series but to me it looks like a new re-telling of the story in The Last Vampire in a modern setting. The movie won't be out in Japan 'til June 2nd 2012, so that should give me enough time to re-watch everything including Blood-C and maybe even the live-action movie I haven't watched yet either.

Soul Calibur V: Can Not Wait!

First off the staff user Xiba has been revealed as Kilik's successor in Soul Calibur V, finally I was worried there. Especially since I need a staff user to give my custom Cable character he's fighting style and weapon. I may be glad that a staff user is still in the game but I'm really gonna miss my favorite character Kilik, and he's saying "Listen to the beat of my soul."

The new Yoshimitsu looks awesomely wicked, as does Lizardman, sweet he has two axes now, wonder what custom character I could use that style for. Totally surprised to see Dampierre make the jump to the console from the PSP, definitely gonna make a custom Joker out of he's fighting style. Not sure how to take Ezio Auditore as the guest character, never liked the Assassin's Creed games, but from what footage I've seen looks to be fun fighter to play as, damn usually can't use a guest fighter's fighting style, perhaps could of been a new version of my custom Deadpool.

I usually don't get collector's editions of video game unless I really love the game or comes with something really cool, which SC5 falls in both with an art book, exclusive armors, soundtrack disc, oh and did I mention it all comes in a book, SOLD. I have to say Soul Calibur is my favorite fighting video game right next to Tekken, but I'll tell you now I can't wait to get this game to make custom characters, trust me comic book heroes and villains and anime characters will be filling up the custom slots really quick. I mean just checkout this trailer that shows how much more detail, scars, patterns on clothes, and hair styles to choose from to closer make a completely personalized custom fighter or get that favorite hero as close as possible.

Transformers Generations Sky Shadow

Sky Shadow or Black Shadow as he was known in Japan in a episode of the Transformers: Victory anime and toyline, who has the distinction of not only being a veil Decepticon but also a Space Gangster as he was listed under function on he's original bio. I have been wanting this guy for a long time, ever since I saw he's original boxart picture well before Hasbro ever made a modern rendition of Thunderwing of which the original Black Shadow was also a repaint and retooling of. So when the new Thunderwing did come out I of course got him, but continued to hope Hasbro would pay homage to their shared legacy, and for one am overly glad that they did.

Sky Shadow just looks like the perfect evil example of a Decepticon, and he's new black, silver, and red deco and new head and chest pieces awesomely create a new character different from Thunderwing. There is one thing about the figure I am not pleased about, on the back of he's card and in press release photos he's shoulder pads and forearms are painted black, on the released figure they are not, leaving he's entire arm all the same color gray, WTH Hasbro. If your a huge Transformers fan, or just have a few cool Transformers you need Sky Shadow.

Centurions & Skeletons: Sweet!

Hell yeah, anyone that watched Cartoon Network between 1994 and 1996 watched Centurions, and now coming out on DVD December 6th. 3 guys each with specialized weapon system battle suits beamed down to them from a fricking space station, yep my 10 year brain was hooked. Definitely can't wait to get this DVD and then the whole 60 episode series, Man and Machine, POWER XTREME!

Here's one from '94 I use to watch on Saturday mornings also coming out December 6th, living skeletons battle guys with speeder bikes, and laser guns, oh yeah I was there. I love seeing cartoons from my childhood coming out on DVD for today's kids to see, to stop them from watching some of the weird crap that's called children's entertainment these days. Now where's my Spider-Man animated series on DVD Disney?
