The one where Chris would much rather be playing Mass Effect 3

by Chris Troy

By the title, it’s obvious that I’m REALLY EXCITED that Mass Effect 3 is out, and I want to spend all my free time playing it, as it is quite rad. However, it’s best that I step away from the Xbox for awhile, as it’s old and I don’t want it red-ringing, exploding or some such. And if you feel my pain, or if one of those hardcore gamers who’ve already beaten the game, and  are looking for more from the universe, check out our the website, as well as the store. We got a number of  Mass Effect books in, be it the novel tie-ins, the graphic novel collection, and the official art book published by Dark Horse. It’s really good expanded universe stuff, and really worth your time if you haven’t already check it out.

Alright, so let’s get the ball rolling on some new arrivals we got in-stock currently. We got a bunch of new Batman related stuff in stock, so let’s start off with that. First up, the awesome new Square Enix Batman Arkham Asylum Play Arts Kai figure. Yes, Arkham Asylum, not City, which makes sense, as Square Enix published the game originally. That’s not to say that Arkham City figures by Square aren’t on their way as well, but it makes sense that Squenix wanted to start at the beginning. The Playarts Batman is fantastic, and far superior to the one DC Direct released last year, which seeing how it retails for about $55  and is twice it’s size, it better damn well be! Aside from a game-accurate sculpt and 30 somewhat points of articulation, this Batman also comes with a pair of variant hands, a variant cape for more action-ish posing, a line launcher and a signature Batarang. There’s a Play Arts Kai Joker on the way too, which I’m sure is something we’ll be looking at soon. Continue reading

Short packed: American Avengers, non-moving parts and 2 packs

By Chris Troy

Happy 4th of July FPNYC faithful. If you’re anything like me, you’ll be drunk by 2, bbqing and watching Battlestar Galatica on Netflix. Maybe some fireworks. I dunno, Battlestar is really good and fireworks may require me to leave my apartment. Either way, with less than 20 days until Marvel Studios’ “Captain America“, today’s the best day to do your patriotic Nerd duty and swing by the store or the website and pick up some Cap swag. We have a huge selection of comics, shirt, toys and other Cap-based merch in stock, so finding something relevant to your all-American interests won’t be too hard! Also keep your eyes out for the upcoming “Captain America” #1 by Ed Brubaker and Steve McNiven, continuing Ed’s fantastic run on Cap’s book. The current Cap series is getting a new co-writer Marc Andreyko with pencils by the underrated and awesome Chris Samnee. Both books are definitely worth the money, but I have to admit I’m more excited for the Bru/Andreyko/Samee book for the insane amount of talent attached to the title. Continue reading
