Ah Gundam AGE… I have to be honest; I have yet to see a single episode of the series. That’s not to say I don’t want to, far from it; I do intend to watch the entire series. I just don’t have much motivation to do so right now. Typically when I watch anime or [...]
Very rarely does Bandai put a kit out that makes me want it immediately, especially when it’s not from Unicorn in any way, shape, or form. There are some designs to which I’m weirdly attached, yet never actually bothered to buy a kit of. Sometimes it’s just laziness, or I meant to actually get one [...]
…At least temporarily. Pulling even wackier hours than we normally do since the beginning of our move in June (6 and 7 a.m. starts have been frequent… you don’t wanna know how long the hours have been. Let’s just say ridiculous.), we’ve noticed quite a lot of you out there wanna shop early. Well, in [...]
Well, it’s done now. I have to say, there is something uniquely satisfying when you finish a Gundam Master Grade. You see the end result of all those days and hours of work standing right in front of you, ready for a lifetime of display amongst your other kits. I can only imagine how satisfied [...]
Comic Books as we know them are now over. Too bad, really, there were some super sweet books coming out this week, such as The Goon #41, Wolverine and the X-Men #15, Before Watchmen: Minutemen #3, Avenging Spider-Man #11, The Detective Comics Annual #1, and Justice League #12, which sure seemed like it had a [...]

This beloved Union Square shop recently moved to a larger 3,400-square-foot space just down the block, [...]
Naw. Not really. But judging by how many of the FPNYC staff (myself included) have picked these up since their arrival you’d think Los Bros Hernandez or Grahpitti were paying us to sling their gorgeous new t-shirts. One of us… one of us… Jaime’s: And Beto’s:
The Forbidden Planet International Blog has a post up today with even more pics of the new Forbidden Planet NYC. Modesty (real or not) dictates I refrain from further comment.

Suh-weeeeeeeet Paul Pope variant cover to this week’s Before Watchmen Dr. Manhattan #1.
COMICS AND MOVIES The line between comic book continuity and Hollywood has never been thinner, and both fan communities are adding fuel to the fire! The success of The Avengers movie has cemented another five solid years of comic book films, and that is only on Marvel’s slate. DC is SURE to throw their hat [...]
Elektra Assassin is one of the all-time great graphic novels and just came back into print in TP form last Wednesday August 15th. I did not make sure to raise a clamor about this fact personally, busy as I was with other stuphs and absent from the floor. Now is my chance to right that. [...]
New York Comic-Con is coming up, and so are dozens of regional shows throughout the country. And what’s the biggest thing going at conventions these days… other than cosplay? Meeting and greeting our favorite creators! For many of you, it’s also a chance to commission sketches by some of the most talented artists in the [...]
My favorite enemy giant robot type has always been the “evil version”. I’m not sure if I’ve spoken of this before, but it’s just so appealing to me. It’s basically like using the good guy’s technology against them. A few examples I can think of are Lazengan from Gurren Lagann, Epyon from Gundam Wing, the [...]
