I've been reading comics for a long time, so I remember when comics were something you waited for and every week you were surprised. I remember when you trekked to the convenience store, or drug store, or grocery store, where ever you bought comics because there was no store that conveniently pulled your comics for you every week. I remember the one time a year you went to the closest comic book convention to you to get the issues that you missed because the other kids in town got there before you.
I am a huge fan of the Legion of Super-Heroes, published by DC, almost non-stop, for over fifty years. This summer marks the end of that streak for the foreseeable future. Even when they didn't have their own regular series, the Legion would appear in back-ups in Action Comics and Superboy, before taking over the latter title and starting a publishing streak that saw the rise of artists like Mike Grell, Pat Broderick, Keith Giffen, Steve Lightle, Stuart Immonen, Oliver Coipel, Francis Manapul, among others. Sadly, in recent years, the title has been hurt by reduced sales, changes in direction and apparent mixed editorial messaging as to the purpose of a book set 1,000 years in the future.
I love you Hasbro. I wanted this figure in a bad way and I finally have it. Thank you for giving us Kwinn. Old school Joe guys know who he is and the role he played within the G.I Joe lore. It is so nice to finally have this one guys and once again a big thanks goes out to Hasbro for finally getting him out. This review is short as I wanted the pics to tell you his story. I hope you enjoy them and pick him up if you see him! Support the brand and keep it alive!!
Continuing our look at the latest G.I Joe releases, we are pleased to present you all the new Crimson Guard. I must say I was a tad skeptical of another CG but after this review I might have a change of heart. To find out what I think stay with us after the jump.
Hey Transfans, did you catch the Transformers show in Charlotte this weekend? I sure hope you did because it was an amazing show. Charticon is a new Transformer show (hosted in Charlotte NC) that took many by surprise. Most new cons suffer from the "new" factor as I call it but not this one. I do believe the attendance and overall fan reaction took the guys behind the show by surprise.
Cobra Combat Ninja is the bomb! I know that's a strange way to start a review but this figure is awesome! What can I say to convene you to buy this one? Read on to see what I think about this new Cobra trooper.
CM's Corp has posted new images of the Excel Suit with Spike and Daniel action figures that pay homage to the G1 characters, We first saw the figure at Wonderfest in just the suit mode; here we get a view of the suit in its transformed alternate vehicle mode with Daniel inside. I am thrilled to see this and I cannot wait to get one. You can check out the original image we posted a while back that showed the suit mode.
