It’s kind of too bad, since some of the toys have been good; but Green Lantern was sadly the worst comic book movie I saw this summer. Admittedly, I’m probably more of a Marvel guy, but their movies were all quite good.
Still, if Eternia had a Green Lantern assigned to that sector, you would probably expect him to be, well, He-Man with a domino mask. Or a big, muscular alien. Yet, Skeletor and Hordak and that lot get beat down by strong guys all the time, and don’t seem to have learned a lesson…
I haven’t read George R. R. Martin‘s books yet, but I liked Game of Thrones on HBO. I wanted to make an Iron Throne, but didn’t want to break or bend up all the toys I had, so I made a paper one! Mine, and some really vague instructions, are here, and I want to try another one if I ever find a Lion-O and the Sword of Omens for it.
I’m headed up to my ancestral homeland!…Montana. Yeah. I make the drive a couple times a year, and there’s a stretch on the road where I almost think, “This isn’t so bad. I could maybe live here again someday.”
Unfortunately, I still have a good half-hour to forty-five minutes of driving left at that point, so by the time I’m there, I’m like, screw that.
I usually have fun in Montana, then am thrilled to get back…not like it’s so great here, either, but you get the picture. Have a good week!
Well, everyone’s been talking about Mattel’s DC subscription this week, but I’ve been thinking about their Masters of the Universe Classic Create-A-Character contest. Although I don’t get a ton of MOTUC, I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. But, then I also worry that everyone’s feelings will end up hurt because the one they wanted (as in, theirs) wasn’t made.
Of course, I’m totally getting out the crayons to try it. I just have to see if my idea is ludicrously unfeasible, or merely stupid.
I have yet to send a tweet or whatever myself, since mine would be the worst ever: “Now I’m at work!” “Now I’m at home!” “Now I’m at work!” Unless I tweet when I’m walking my dog, that might be about it…Actually, I do intend to start tweeting on the rare occasions when I pick up a new figure in stores; even though that seems few and far between lately.
Meanwhile, Poe has tweeted his goal of getting a thousand followers, which is as good a way to keep up with what’s going on here as any. Follow him now!
I really don’t know how I feel about DC’s upcoming reboot/relaunch/retread thing they have coming up. I would love it if comics started selling again and weren’t just an afterthought to licensing…which I just realized is an ironic thing to say, since I buy way more DC figures than I do DC comics. But I was kind of hoping there would be a few more surprises in the 52 upcoming number-one issues, that DC would go all-out and make some riskier choices, like bringing back Amethyst or ‘Mazing Man or Angel Love or something.
Keep in mind, that my opinion is doubtless tainted since at least the last four comics I’ve been reading from DC have been cancelled. (Unknown Soldier, Warlord, Doom Patrol, and probably Xombi by now.)
The ‘alternate’ Pornstache…man, Poe goes all out and gets a MOTUC-style custom made for 339/1; while I stick a Minimate hairpiece and a cut-out mustache and eyebrows on a 200X Ice Armor He-Man. Still, mine is ready in fifteen minutes!
