by Chris Troy. I really hate typing out cliche stuff like “a dollar doesn’t buy you much these days, especially in NYC”, but considering how much it costs to ride the subway these days, it’s kind of true. HOWEVER, for a mere $1, you can pick one of the new Marvel Heroes Buildable Figurines from [...]

By Loran I know I’m in the minority here, but I LOVED G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra. It was a big dumb action movie, but it was a FUN one. It was great to see live-action versions of Joe characters on the big screen, even if some of the likenesses and character selection left something [...]
By Loran It’s been no secret that Transformers: Classics was one of the best ideas ever. Transformers had never had direct updates to the original characters in the modern era, just repaints and homages. Classics was a line nobody ever saw coming and was a huge hit, spawning two offshoot lines. The latter of which [...]

By Loran I’ve always loved the vehicles in Halo. They really felt like the one thing that made the game stand out and reach its current level of popularity. Also, putting the vehicles in a third person perspective instead of staying in the first person was a wise move. When you keep it in the [...]
Comic books are the result of some Steve Rogers / Captain America level experimentations. The puny, pre-war weakling that was Daily Comic strips kept trying to be a media darling, but the big mean bully named Radio kept punching him in a nearby alley. THEN, Max Gaines, hoping for the literal, financial translation of his [...]
by Chris Troy Happy President’s Day FP Faithful! Was that wish an excuse to use an overplayed Marvel-based Abe Lincoln image? Yes, possibly, but hey, it’s the thought that counts right? Hopefully those of you who had the day off did something rad with it, as I slept for about 10 hours and spending most [...]
