And we’re back at our look at the Eva 0-1 from Evangelion 2.0! I managed to finish this kit amongst the confusion of a bachelor party, birthday, an upcoming wedding and a trip to Atlanta, because I am a multi-tasking hero.
Seeing this this morning on Blastr immediately provoked memories of Pavement: On another note, I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve spent well over twenty years attempting to grow Trek sideburns to disastrous effect. Which is okay, really, as some Starfleet Captains just plain forget to grow them. Even when said Captain is not only [...]
…In which we catch up with one of our favorite subjects. Actor Peter Jurasik, who played a compound interest program named Crom in the original film, showed up in an article in the Star News (North Carolina) over the weekend chatting about his experience while shooting the original classic film. “Steve Lisberger who created it, [...]
By Loran So, I’m doing kind of a special review this time around. Remember how I mentioned back in the History of Gunpla article that the “support mecha” were the best kits in the original series lineup? Well, here we go, now I’m gonna sink my teeth into three of these kits-the Magella Attack Tank, [...]
By Loran Once in a blue moon when all of the planets in the solar system line up and an eclipse occur, Bandai releases a multi-set of HGUC kits as something that ISN’T a convention exclusive. There have only been five (six if you count the new “Gunpla Starter Set” of a Gundam and a [...]
Here on Earth we use games of both the card and video variety to distract ourselves from the misery of our daily existence. Logically, who wants to be an unemployed barber when you can be an attractive 60th level elf woman who rides a tiger? A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, however, life was different. Games in the Star Wars universe were utilized for a variety of purposes, such as degrading droids, stealing space ships or just shooting whining farmers with lasers from a robot piñata until they learn to chillax.
If you’re not already hip to this coming Saturday’s International Read Comics in Public Day here’s an informative poster (click to enlarge) followed by a few words from the event’s sponsors at The Daily Cross Hatch to getcha going: …for some reason, when we find ourselves cracking one open in a public setting, we invariably anticipate the [...]
Letters of Note has discovered and posted this intriguing internal Paramount communiqué from 1987. The casting memo, summarizing potential actors in the running for various roles in the studio’s then-forthcoming relaunch of the Star Trek franchise, lists quite a few surprising names, with a few others notably absent. Thankfully this only documents the Next Gen that [...]
Jeez, I cannot believe this month. Last week all we get was one manga, and this week? Nothing. Well, okay there is one single item coming at us from TokyoPop, but I’m not sure if it can even be considered manga. And not for the usual reasons I don’t count half the stuff coming from TokyoPop as manga, this is going to be TokyoPop’s first legitimate single-issue comic book. Here’s the deal. You all love and remember Priest by Min-Woo Hyung (which technically makes it manhwa in the first place, but let’s not nit pick). Well coming out this week is the official comic for the upcoming Priest movie “Priest: Purgatory” that’s going to be starring Paul Bettany (Silas from The Da Vinci Code and the voice of Jarvis in Iron Man). Basically, A veil of evil threatens to engulf humanity, and one man stands in the way of the apocalypse: our hero, a fallen priest who sold his soul for the power to battle evil and fight for humanity’s redemption.
Life, if done right, is long. It is also full of unfair twists. We start it off as mindless eating machines that get to take naps, everybody loves and wants to hold, and we get all our meals through breastfeeding. Six Flags! We end our tenure on Earth as interesting, battle scarred individuals that no one wants to talk to and who are routinely ignored for the new and unusual. Two flags.
By Loran Welcome to part two of Double Zeta week. I’d love to cover the new HGUC Gundam ZZ kit, buuut I don’t have that one yet. I’m going to cover one of the earlier ZZ HGUC kits, the Zaku III, which appeared only a few times towards ZZ’s end. The kit used the previous [...]
This is what I’m reduced to to keep the Daily Planet daily these days… Links to and pics of Pokemon-shaped ice cream scoops, incorporated with references to moderately-forgotten and totally off-topic but nonthe less pertinent songs by Ice Cube in the face of a schedule so hectic as to make a Marine tuckered out by [...]
If you’re a subscriber to FPNYC’s YouTube channel you’re familiar with a weekly segment that’s been running starring our colleagues Ruben Miranda and Josh Wesibrod discussing new release comics and graphic novels. If you’re not familiar I recommend you check them out… The guys know their stuff, and share their genuine enthusiasm with the viewer [...]
Some out there may remember the bandit who held up a couple of Colorado 7-11s with a Bat’leth a year and a half ago. You may also be familiar with the man who, a few weeks ago, partially dressed as Darth Vader in robbing a Long Island bank at gunpoint. Now it seems Batman had [...]
By Christopher Troy Fun facts kids: Bandai makes kits for other mecha franchises that don’t contain the word “Gundam”. Macross Frontier, Dragon Ball Z, Escaflowne, and of course, Gainax’s Neon Genesis Evangelion have all received the Gunpla treatment, and today, we’ll be looking at the EVA o-1 from the 2nd Eva movie “Evangelion 2.0 You [...]
