James Gunn Addresses Internet Hate

James Gunn on DC's Future
Folks, let's be real for a minute. When Man of Steel came out, people were annoyed that the film didn't capture the more sunny tone of classic Superman comic stories. They kicked off the series with Superman murdering his on screen nemesis and it was A LOT to take in. Then came Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, a film with enough melodrama to match its bloated name, and a soundtrack that blared and screeched and literally screamed until my head was splitting. Batman unmercifully mowed down piles of thugs alongside a nonstop parade of DC's finest comic moments chopped up and smooshed into one film as if its creators were screaming IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT YOU NERDY BASTARDS??!! No... no...... absolutely not. It's not what we wanted. GRIM DARK, the fans chanted, and the "Martha" memes were neverending. In stark contrast, the one-paragraph-long plot of Wonder Woman was an absolute ray of sunshine and Gal Gadot's portrayal made fans (mostly) forget they'd been screaming for a more physically Amazonian actress.

Galactus: The Devourer of Worlds Has Come

Hasbro Marvel Comics Galactus Action Figure 012
What will surely go down as one of the best action figures ever made has finally arrived at the doorsteps of die hard Marvel collectors, action figure aficionados and those with 400 bucks to blow on a once in a life time toy project. That year long gamble and half a rent check, in my opinion, is well worth it when you slide all 3 feet of Galactus out of his box and are reminded there are three Marvel Legends heralds packed right along side him. His eyes light up, his chest and head piece blinds and each finger moves in every direction an imaginative or juvenile mind could imagine. You've seen many pictures of this behemoth already, most of which depicted Galactus as a newly adopted child going on many, many suburban adventures (and conquering toilet challenges), as well as those all important video reviews, so we'll skip all that gushing and go right for the eye candy.

Do you even Tik Tok?  Instagram it up!  Like Us! Give us a follow: All the VIDS! All the toy images you can handle!
Playmobil has been hitting it out of the park with their licensed toy lines re-imagined in the signature art style of the Plamobilian Peoples. For me, the two highest points have been Ghostbusters and Scooby-Doo, which lent themselves exceptionally well to the redesign. Ghostbusters in particular had so much potential that I hope the crew will go back to the license and explore the Real Ghostbusters cartoon universe and their endless legions of ghosts, demons, and unforgettable legendary nightmares. IT'S ON MY WISH LIST! While these items are not on the schedule (so far), we did get a look at what's to come in the next few months at New York Comic Con 2022.
