The twin brother of Cersei Lannister, the Queen of Westeros, Jaime Lannister is a knight of the Kingsguard. Known for being arrogant and dishonorable, Jaime has the cunning to play the Game of Thrones. Plus he has awesome armour, oh yeah.
Bruce Lee’s early death created a legend, a mythical aura around him that transcended his actual abilities. A tale of a man who would study poetry and philosophy,and then apply those lessons to punching people in the face for kicks. And really, what better way is there to be remembered, than as a person who was bigger than life itself?
There’s something appealing about the insect-like design process of the movie Transformers, that makes them more memorable to me. And it must have been an absolute nightmare to recreate that look, in a smaller replica scale form. ThreeA toys has their own Starscream on the way. Check him out.
You could be cool. So cool, that you won’t ever have to bother with a monthly armed response subscription, because you’ll have the freakin’ Batman guarding your home. That’s what NECA is teasing, as they’ve got a caped crusader that they’ll be rolling out next year March.
Mega blocks. Mega highways. Mega City One. Convulsing. Choking. Breaking under its own weight. Citizens in fear of the street. The gun. The gang. Only one thing fighting for order in the chaos: the men and women of the Hall of Justice. Juries. Executioners. Judges. And on bitchin’ awesome motorcycles as well.
What are you buying your pals for Christmas this year? Books? DVDs? Knives? BOOOOOOORING! Real gifts need to be awesome. Real gifts need to show that you’ve put some thought into them. Real gifts need to be perfect organisms, devoted simply to survival. Perfection. And I have just the gift for any of you who happen to have watched any of the Alien movies one too many times.
Maybe you prefer a lead character in an anime who knows what his life-mission is, and intends to accomplish it with a swing of a half-ton of iron that can go through monsters like a hot knife through butter. I am of course, talking about Guts. Or Gutsu, I think. Anime dubs are weird.
Beyond genetic discrimination, there’s one other big problem with being a mutant: Giant robots. Or more specifically, giant Sentinel robots which can lock on to a mutant power signature and introduce Homo Superior to Machina Hand Laser. Still think being a mutie is cool?
The real Green Lantern isn’t Deadpool in a horribly animated super-suit. Green Lantern is cocky, bold and willing to take risks. He’s the original man without fear, a space-cop with jurisdiction over not just our planet, but an entire quadrant of the galaxy. And he also wields the most formidable weapon in the galaxy.
Tom Hiddleston nailed the role of the adopted son of Odin, to the point where I pretty much would have no problem with him ruling all nine realms. Seriously, King Loki! What could possibly go wrong? Just remember to kneel before him.
Imagine being on the wrong side of a Batman who also happens to be especially grumpy on the night before Christmas. That’s the idea behind Batman: Noel, which placed a Dark Knight spin on a Christmas Carol. Yes, Batman was essentially Ebenezer Scrooge, but with more leather, Batarangs and fist-based justice. It was awesome.
Anyway you look at it, Iron Man just oozes great design. Five feature film appearances have resulted in dozens and dozens of Iron Man armour suits, with the most recent prosthesis being the Mark 43 from Avengers: Age of Ultron. And I think I’ve finally found a version of the suit that will fit me.
