Spin Master Locks Licensing with DC Comics

DC Comics
Mattel has been at the wheel of the DC Comics action figure machine for as long as I can remember, turning our favorite heroes and villains into toys for babies, tweens and old, crotchety men complaining about an ab-crunch or lack thereof, alike. Now we are faced with the exciting prospect of another massive toy manufacturing giant taking on the DC toy license and I, personally, can't wait to see how they make their mark on modern action figure engineering.

Emmet Cancels the Apocalypse in the LEGO Movie 2 Holiday Short

We all have that friend who is eternally sunny...maybe even annoyingly so. You want to wallow in a good, solid funk and there they are, singing and trying to hug you. Gross. My friends all love Halloween, so at the very least, when the Holidays kick into full gear and the Christmas music starts getting blasted from every communist lawn, I can take comfort that I will see Tim Burton-esque decorations in my feed, trees full of eyeballs and, of course, elves on shelves...on fire. Today, we celebrate both the eternally sunny optimist and the morose, doom-sayer who can appreciate a light display that stings the eyes...because you can't have LEGO Emmet without LEGO Batman.

ABC Picks up Agents of SHIELD for 7th Season

ABC renews Marvel's Agents of SHIELD for 7th Season
When last I visited with the Son of Coul, he and his merry band of ass kickers had just defeated an evil life model decoy hell bent on creating a virtual reality where HYDRA won and..well..everyone else lost. At least I think that's what was happening. It's been a while. After that, there was some bit where they were in the future in space and everything played like a so-so Syfy Channel ongoing series circa 2013. They had the crummy dystopian fashion sense, the depressing story line and, from week to week, I really couldn't figure out where they were I bailed. Granted...I have a very short attention span. I've yet to make it all the way through the Batman movie where Poison Ivy chews up the screen and Bane looks like he's had a bad reaction to bee over....but maybe that's for the best. At any rate, it seems Agents of SHIELD marches on...and I have some catching up to do. FIRE UP MY NETFLIX!!
