2016 Toy Fair Report – Diamond Select Toys

IMG_6536

So many wonders to behold at the DST booth this year. My favorite is the opening Shakespeare bust from stately Wayne Manner. It even functions as a bank, to help you on your path to becoming a millionaire playboy. Once you pick this up, check out our plans to build your own batphone. Retailing at under $200, you’ll get your every Penny’s worth. Ok, I’m sorry.

Lots of cool new Back to the Future mini-mates are headed your way this year. Check out our gallery for pics of the 1950’s Western Marty, 1980’s track-suit Biff, 1950’s peeping tom George, and more. But we really liked these much larger, and slightly animated Vinimates. This Doc and Marty look fantastic, but also check out the X-Files, Aliens, Ghostbusters, and Predator ones as well. These are 4″ high, made of vinyl, and should cost you about $10 a pop.

Don’t stop there, keep reading and check out our gallery below.

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Review

click for tickets

I had the opportunity to attend an advance screening of Avengers Age of Ultron earlier this week and I wanted to give you the rundown, spoiler free. My brief two cents, it’s a lot of fun, and it’s a decent enough story for all the action and “kick-ass” posturing to be hung on. There were two distinct “wat…” moments, but nothing a comic book movie that knows what it’s doing couldn’t get away with. If you liked Avengers 1, then you’ll enjoy Avengers 2. This is not a Matrix Reloaded all over again. Click below for some more details.

click to buy from AmazonGuardians of the Galaxy comes out tomorrow on Blu-Ray and DVD.

Marvel Universe Live!

Red Skull and Capt America face off

I took the family to witness Marvel Universe Live at the Verizon Center on Sunday afternoon, and it was epic! The comic pages come to life as your favorite Marvel heroes battle it out with special effects and lots of action. I’m a fan of Feld productions, such as Ringling Bros Circus, Disney on Ice, and of course Monster Jam. But this event was unlike anything I’d ever seen. If you have a kid, or any fan of the Marvel Universe, you need to experience it like this.

aka Spider-Man

Interview with Moe Alafrangy, bringing Spider-Man to life in the upcoming Marvel Universe Live coming to the Verizon Center in September.

We wanted to talk to Moe because he is a Northern Virginia native, but also because he’s Spider-Man, and it’s been awhile since we got to interview a super hero. Moe grew up in Falls Church and Alexandria, and went Annandale High School. As a kid, Moe loved Spider-Man and he wanted to be nimble and flexible like his hero. He got started in Tae Kwon Do at the age of nine, and completed his first black belt at age 14. Moe was drawn to Tae Kwan Do and the martial art tricking it features.

Ghost Rider Pisses on Itself

Like most people in this world I despised the first Ghost Rider film, so news of a second film didn’t sound like a good idea. At Comic Con the early buzz was that they got the second film right. I would agree based on the trailer. The effects look great, and this is easily a darker film. Then they ruin it with Ghost Rider peeing fire.

Thor: Tales of Asgard DVD Review

I was excited when the long delayed Thor: Tales of Asgard Blu-Ray arrived at my door. It was especially cool because I was going to see the new Thor movie this weekend (By the way the film is awesome). I only know of Thor from the Avengers, and his brother Loki always played a big part of it. I was hoping that Tales of Asgard would help provide some knowledge of Thor’s backstory. It did, but that was about all it did.

The first clip of Tales of Asgard was released last February. The “geek buzz” was particularly strong on this and it is finally making its long-delayed release on Blu-ray.

The Future Foundation. Really? WTF?

 

With the death of the Human Torch the Fantastic Four dispanded. Fear not! Reed Richards and crew added Spider-Man, put on some “really gay” white uniforms and is now The Future Foundation! Wow I’m so glad I stopped reading comics.
