By Loran While the Schuzrum Dias may have been a bit of a pointless variation to begin with, Double Zeta Gundam thankfully has a few more interesting ones. I believe I covered a kitbash of the ReGelg, a Gelgoog variant, some time ago, which is one of my personal favorites. However, there was one story [...]
Take a whole hand-full of DC numbers 4, add some Marvel, a bit of IDW, a pinch of Dark Horse, and finish off with just a great big helping of Coffee. Let steep for three minutes and stir!

CHRISTMAS IS OVER, AND NOW YOU HAVE CASH AND/OR GIFT CARDS TO USE ON CRAP THAT YOU REALLY DON’T NEED, BUT YOU WILL ANYWAY, DESPITE YOUR WIFE YELLING AT YOU FOR THE AMOUNT OF TOYS & STATUES CURRENTLY IN THE LIVING ROOM…whoops, projecting in my articles again.

By Loran Towards the end of Double Zeta Gundam, I have to wonder if there was some sort of budget crisis with the model kits. In the series, you start seeing old suits and variations of them appearing in the latter half. Suits like Gelgoogs, Desert Zakus, and of course, the Gazu R/L. But there [...]

by Loran Much like OOO, I still need to watch Kamen Rider Double/W. Why haven’t I? Well, laziness, really. I will say, though; Double’s style really appealed to me right out the gate. It was such a return to basics, something missing from most modern Riders. All of the designs were incredibly evocative of the [...]
By Loran I feel really weird building and reviewing the older HGUC Gundam kits these days. I remember when these things were the best kits you could buy at the scale. Back then, the only prerequisites for a “good model” were “doesn’t need glue” and “isn’t from the original 0083 line”. We had no double-jointed [...]
2012’s almost here, but I have so many more comics to read! The pile grows ever-larger, blotting out the sight of the coming year. Plus, you know, the end times. I’ll need something to wile away the days as I await the fulfillment of the Mayan prophecy, the collision of Planet X, total economic meltdown, [...]
by Chris Troy If I had a clever intro, this is where it would go. Please take note of this To the left of these words is a picture of a figure of New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees, one of the players featured in the 28th wave of the NFL McFarlane’s Sports Picks. I [...]
Vampires! Fairy Tales! Embattened men! All this and more as Dan Roth guides the trusty ship of Weekly Comics Releases through the stormy seas of the Christmas rush.

This new style for film-making was called “Dogma 95.” Rules like “Filming must be done on location,” “No overdubbed [...]
