What?!? When!?!: Your Updated Comics Cinema Calendar, FCBD 2015 Edition

Ultimate-marvel-Marathon.0

Oh man… I’ve got stuff to report on C2E2, Free Comic Book Day is fast approaching, and, of course, Age of Ultron is hitting theaters this Thursday… Maybe I should build some robot minions to help out. Maybe I’ll open source it, so others can improve on my designs! What could go wrong, right? Here’s the […]

Well, I had hoped to wait until May before updating my movie calendar, but then Bob Iger had to go and hold an annual shareholder’s meeting for Disney. …which means that all sorts of stuff got announced, so here’s the latest.

DesignerCon Tells a Toy Story All Its Own

IMG_0365

By David Nieves Even though Los Angeles is the entertainment capital of the world, ten years ago, you’d be remiss to find comic conventions, toy shows, or most other forms of pop culture gatherings. The monthly mini show at the Shrine Expo was at times more a flea market than a convention and Frank and […]

Lego have been making quite the splash at SDCC so far, as you may have seen from some of the various photos people have been taken. There’s a scale version of Hobbiton on-site, along with lifesize models of characters like Batman, Catwoman, and Joker. But Lego have also announced some new sets this weekend – […]

Seen Iron Man 3 but want more? Looking to replay the best scenes over and over again? Or at the very least, do you want to put Pepper Potts into War Machine’s suit of armour and stick Tony Stark’s head onto a woman’s body? With the release of Iron Man 3 came three sets from […]

Resurgent TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES among Toy of the Year winners

IMG_0640.jpg

While we sort through our 600+ photos from Toy Fair, here’s the Toy of the Year winners, which includes both Lego’s girl-centric Friends line and Playmates’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line, which we saw previewed yesterday. It’s huge and no doubt the Turtles are back— although now owned by Nickelodeon and not creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. Still, it’s a property that has stood the test of time to become a true perennial for kids — if Michael Bay’s live-action version doesn’t somehow kill it again, that is.

Lego Batman Review: Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape!

As an early Christmas present for my cousins, who live far away in the south, ugh, I decided to give their mum a break and buy them some Lego Batman. They’re both 7, which means they’re old enough to not eat the caped crusader, but young enough that it took them a good afternoon to assemble […]

So, what did I find while I waited for Comic-Con to gather up steam for warp speed? LEGOs! Star Trek! Walking Dead! Margaret Atwood!

Toy Fair 2010 in photos

So we wandered around Toy Fair for a bit yesterday, but missed most of the big presentations. Lego had a very early morning event showing off TOY STORY 3 Legos; we missed Hasbro’s entirely, but made the Mattel event. According to a knowledgeable observer, Hasbro and Mattel are going in slightly different directions — Hasbro’s […]
