SDCC, The Place To Be!

Last night I tried several times to make a preview post on my blog via my phone. But I had no luck. So here I am, all the previews spoiled. I feel like I came to a party just as it was ending.

But anyways what I wanted to say is that I'm excited for the new unknown stuff that would be shown at San Diego Comic Con. And boy o boy, did we get lots of new stuff!

Marvel Legends!

The first wave, the Terrax wave was finally revealed last night. And I feel "Meh" about it. For $24.99 I'm glad I do. So in this wave we get:

  1. Ghost Rider (Modern)
  2. Heroic Age Thor (Glad I don't need to get the exclusive!)
  3. Commander Rogers (He has a weird head.)
  4. Hope Summers (Does she have any importance as an X-Man?)
  5. Klaw, Master of Sound
  6. Extremis Iron Man (Looks like an upscale of the Marvel Universe one)
  7. Constrictor (Straight out of Marvel Universe)
Now don't get me wrong even though I'm being nitpicky doesn't mean I'm a hating troll. For the right price I would scoop all these up because I like Hasbro. And I applaud them for not letting a good concept die. But I would only be interested in Terrax, Rogers and Thor. And maybe Hope because she looks like a decent looking female.

But beyond that I'm not interested. Let's see what else we have pictures of...

Marvel Universe!

Hot Diggity Dog! Wallet eat your heart out cause we aint gonna survive 2011!

I knew we would see a lot of the 2011 stuff on display, there was the stuff from Series 3, Toy Fair, and the stuff that was spoken of but not heard of, like Adam Warlock/Thanos comic pack.

So in the single carded series we get:
  1. Beta Ray Bill! (I knew it had to happen, he was on my wishlist!)
  2. Psylocke
  3. Ages Of Thunder Thor (Take that Exclusive! Here's hoping for X-Force Archangel and Nick Fury!)
  4. Astonishing Beast! (Even though I want him to come with the Iceman as shown)
  5. Patriot
  6. Kraven? (No label)
  7. Iron Fist? (No Label)
  8. Smooth Spider-Man? (With House of M backpack)
  9. New Green Hulk? (No Label)
If you're wondering. I put (No Label) to the figures that don't have little signs near their feet. Because I don't know if they belong to X-Men First Class, Spider-Man or the Avengers Marvel Universe Line.

Also Magneto uses the Ghost Rider body. Sigh.

Next up Comic Packs!

I noticed that the Adam Warlock/Thanos and Mr Sinister/Gambit comic packs say they are available...NOW! NOW! NOW!

I spy with my little eyethe aformentiones Sinister/Gambit pack, and another one Unmasked Juggernat/Colossus! Way to cool!

So there you have it. I hope we see more stuff before then end of SDCC, but for now I'm happy with what I see.

New Stuff For "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" Cartoon

While watching the special features on the Avengers DVD's they announced new looks and new characters for the series, which is awesome!

I like the series and the way they tackle stories for the Marvel Universe. The Ultimates line of comics did the same thing, but somehow they got it wrong. These guys got it right.

Halo: New York Toy Fair 2012

Wow! I didn't expect much from McFarlane but I am impressed. Even though my toy heart was broken by the realization that Halo Reach ends with series 6 ( I expected an unhelmeted Emile and Noble Six? in Series 7) But as long as the scale of the new stuff sticks with Reach I'll be happy. If not I hope the quality control gets better.

Here's the stuff I'm excited for!

Super Hero Squad Online Review

If you haven't gotten my open invitation to the beta, and accepted it. You're missing out on being a Marvel Super Hero. Unlike DC's MMORPG you can play as Thor, or Spider-Man if you wanted to. But lets go into the review shall we.

Lo! There came a day when I decided to do a written review and it was good! Or so I think.

Size Comparison - Halo Reach Video Series

I love the Halo Reach line of figures from McFarlane Toys. I don't know why I didn't jump on the bandwagon earlier.

But I've always gotten into toy lines after or near the end of their run. I don't know why, it just is.

I was out doing stuff today and I ran into a old friend.

Top 10 Halo Reach Figures!!!

To end the year of doom 2012, I'm making this list and checking it twice.

Sadly the most you will find in stores is series 6. All these figures are awesome. EVEN THE SABRE PILOT!!! (with his obnoxious eyebrows).

So here you go, from 10 to 1...


 10. Carter:

The leader of Noble Team and one of the coolest armor designs comes in at number 10. Not because he's the worst, but because it might be too obvious if he's number 1. I love the Commando armor, the blue color and the distinctive markings.

Carter - Series 5 Halo Reach Action Figure Review

*****Carter Series 5*****  Halo Reach Action Figure MSRP $11.99 from Mcfarlane Toys (with new Spartan Laser)
