The WiiU should do nicely for 5-8 year olds. There isn't a lot available for that age group on the Xbox one or ps4.

Well, unless you're going to buy a ton of games, I'd absolutely go with an XBox One or Playstation.  We got the XBox one for Christmas and both the kids love to play it.  We started off with Disney 2.0, which has a create mode (think Minecraft, but not just cubes of stuff) for all kinds of custom playhouses.  I think it came with a Dance-off sort of game as well.  Then we grabbed a few Lego-based games - Sam's favorite is the Marvel Super Heroes.  His latest acquisition was the Skylanders Trap Force, which is a lot like Infinity where you have to buy the characters to play them.  This has the added element of buying traps to capture bad guys in - then you can play the bad guys in the game.  I've heard good things about the PS4 as well - I don't think you can go wrong with either of those.  You're also coming in at a time where ou might be able to get the games/system/figures for a lot less than last year.

Thoughts from those that have seen it - OK for my two 8 (almost 9) year olds? 

I've seen mixed reviews on language/violence levels... especially since it starts out with a "bang".

Sam and I caught up on Cap2, Thor2, and IronMan3 this week, so we're heading out to see Avengers Sunday morning @ Southdale.  If your boys were fine with the other Marvel adventures, I think they'll be fine with this too.  I'll let you know if I feel differently afterwards though.

This was just a matter of time.  Release date?

I love this comment on their forum:

"Ist schon jemandem aufgefallen das Commander Thorn in dieser Sortierung die Nummer 15 hat und in der US/Canadischen die Nummer 21?!? What gives?"

Great story. Congratulations on finding this.  What will you do with it once you have it?

True Detective Season 2 Trailer

Just finished the last episode of Season I.  Great conclusion and wrap up to everything.  I wish we were getting more of these initial detectives, but will be interesting to see what they do with the next installment.  If its half as good as Season I it will be worth watching.

I'd also recommend Bloodline to anyone who liked True Detective.  Similar narration with the storyline bouncing between different timelines as a mystery is revealed about a well known family in the Florida Keys and their black sheep brother/son. 

I'm out of TV viewing material when Mad Men wraps up as well.  We watch a few recorded sitcoms like Modern Family from time to time and will catch the back half of Amazing Race, but I'm at a loss for anything new until Orange is the New Black and Fear the Walking Dead hit this Summer.  Did anyone catch Better Call Saul on AMC?  Worth watching?

This is why I'm getting out of collecting comics.


Is this really the direction writers feel they need to go to sell comics?  Really?

That repack stuff is equal parts hilarious and sad.  Nice that they offered up a clone trooper versus something worse I guess.   ;D

I started watching True Detective this week and am officially hooked.  I mostly despise McCoughnehe,  but his acting in this show is really a work of art.  You can tell that he's living and breathing the role.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Hasbro booth pictures of 6" line
« on: April 24, 2015, 09:44 AM »
Anyone know where those figure stands are from?

The $20-23 price point is irritating, but manageable given they only release 2-3 new figures per wave and there's little other SW stuff to buy these days.  The Marvel 6" stuff is right up there at $20ish as well.

Can you still get the 2-pack pricing with the single figure clamshells?

I had no idea there were so many of these!  Funko has built up a nice little business with these.

Pipe dreams, my friends.  Pipe dreams.
