Introduction and First Review

CapShield05Greetings! My name is Steve-O. You can just call me Steve-O. Most people do. I am probably one of the biggest Star Wars nerds you could find when it comes to knowing about the lore and characters of that universe. I am unique in that I am one of the fans who brazenly claims to love the Prequels and Special Editions no matter what kind of ire that gets me from the so called ‘purists’.

My other interests include the following universes: Marvel characters, DC characters, Firefly, Mass Effect, Assassin’s Creed, Battlestar Galactica, Tomb Raider, Game of Thrones, Star Wars the Clone Wars, Vikings, Arrow, Flash, Agents of SHIELD, Supernatural, Transformers, Terminator, TMNT, The Bourne series, Elder Scrolls, Dragon Age, Kingdoms of Amalur, World of Warcraft, Star Wars the Old Republic, Guild Wars 2, The Matrix, and so on and so forth.

And now onto my very first review since its only been out a week and I see no one else has gotten to it on the website: Avengers Age of Ultron FULL SPOILER WARNING IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE MOVIE STOP READING NOW

MineCraft 360 Marvel skin pack now live!

creeperrburstinChristmas Eve packed a pleasant surprise for me when I saw the new Marvel skin pack was live (and as far as I know unannounced) on Minecraft 360.

It’s Avengers heavy and features several Iron man suits, and even Agent Coulson ! It will run you 3.99 but if you are a huge marvel fan it might be worth it.


MU (new) HULK review

I was very excited when I first saw the sculpt for the hulk. The earlier sculpt from the marvel universe line was so terrible that I settled for a pair of hulks from past movie lines to fulfill the Jade Giants place on my display shelf. I picked up the red and grey versions (as you will see below) so I was familiar with the sculpt of the toy.


The original mu hulk had lots of articulation but barley any of them worked. It was extra wide and mad while seem more squat and squished that brutish.


Unfortunately This hulks is similarly full of barley functional joints, especially in the legs. While an improvement, I was hoping for more. I am also in sure why the my line continues to use high thigh swivels that don’t function, given hasbro’s recent move to reduced articulation I would think obviously non functioning joints would be the first to go to save money on parts.

New Iron Man III trailer, and what it confirms

marvellogoEarlier Today a new Iron Man III trailer hit the net.  It showed us some scenes that we have already had glimpses off, but it also showed us more and confirmed some things we already knew. The design reveals in this trailer were very impressive, check it out embedded below,with spoilerish commentary after.

So it’s been confirmed, loads of armors. I find it bizarre that the movie that best lends itself to a toyline full of different Iron Man Armors, has the crappiest marvel toys produced this side of the 90’s. 5 POAs, and a line that takes such a noble concept, as creativity, customizing, and swapping armors, and reduces it to  blocks like the 5 POAs and gives us such varied colors and designs that nothing makes sense when swapped, nothing.

All the negativity of the toyline aside, this trailer confirms we have some excellently designed Iron Men to look forward to, that there is some type of process Tony, and others appear to undergo,  and that Mandarin continues to be Bad @$$. We see a Stark that is suffering from PTSD after the first movie, and one who loves Pepper.  The president’s inclusion is a bit surprising. The seriousness of the matter will likely lead many to ask where the other Avengers are and I think it will be simpler to answer than War Machine’s Absence from the Avengers (yes I know there is going to be or already is a comic  that addresses that) Cap + Black Widow, and shield are dealing with another thread, hawkeye may be off screen, but is on assignment somewhere, dealing with a threat less cinematic, more important, Thor is in Asgaurd,and Banner is hiding.

Iron Man II disappointed many, and although I enjoyed it, i’m hoping for more here.  Is anyone else helping in a suit? Do believe some of the rumors?

Our forums now have a button for spoiler tags, how convenient ! Head to the forum to join the discussion in progress, and talk about some of those other rumors, and the implications of the trailer. CLICK HERE.


Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, a look at what could have been!

marvellogoAvengers: Earth’s  Mightiest Heroes is in my opinion the greatest marvel toon ever made. Sadly it’s been canceled to make way for a more movie like and kid friendly (not serialized) story telling.  Comic Book has posted a series of pics of designs on what could have been.  I drooled over them, some really obscure characters, famous story lines, and neat cameos. I’ve mirrored one image below but for more images head here to the gallery on Comic Book
