Yeah - the idea that adamantium can cut through adamantium was a new one to me.

So was sucking the healing factor from his bone marrow...

Still not as bad as anything from the Wolverine Origins movie, though.

I don't understand what use he can get out of "bone claws."  They'd be comparatively brittle and snap off pretty easy.  Only good for stabbing something fleshy - not slicing.

Tomb Raider came out in 1996, years before Jolie became a household name.

I'm interested to see how this will shape up as well, much more interested than I ever thought I'd be in an Ant Man movie, but I'm looking forward to it.  Also read the news/rumor today that Johnny Depp met with Marvel recently regarding the role of Dr. Strange.

I don't have faith in any other filmmaker like I do in Edgar Wright.  Every film he's done has been flat-out brilliant.  Pure Joy.

That is freakin' epic.  Now if they can squeeze him in for a week of Avengers 2 shooting...

I checked out True Detective on HBO last night.  Great acting, but I don't know if I've watched a more joyless, dour show.

I wish book 6 would be scheduled to come out in 2014...

Half-way through book 3.

But you should really read the whole series from the beginning.

I don't like that they open up vintage figures for U grades.

That's always struck me as blasphemous, even if they are usually ones that are pretty beat up.

Agreed.  That's their worst sin.  Being grossly incompetent kinda pales in comparison.

I am sending you a bill for the barf damage to my keyboard.

Ha!  Apparently it's a body suit for some commercial.  But it's really convincing.  That photo isn't touched or shopped.  Makes me wonder if they could do a convincing She Hulk with this type of thing.

Paul Rudd IS Ant-Man

He's also rumored NOT playing Hank Pym.  Which could mean that Pym WILL be in Age of Ultron and a wife-beating bastard.

The story also details the reason for Edgar Wright delaying Ant-Man, and if you didn't have enough respect for the guy, how could you not after reading that?  Kinda funny, I just watched The World's End from Netflix last night and bloody loved it.

Somebody posted the AFA legal disclaimer on their certificates.  It basically said "This is our opinion.  If it's wrong you're SOL."  There isn't an legal recourse against them.

A seller from Europe known as ToyToni purchased a large lot of roughly 11,000 unused Vintage backer cards and bubbles 20+ years ago.  Most are dead mint - QC rejections for various minor production errors.  Almost all are Palitoy or German.

Since the purchase he's been assembling C10 MOCs and selling them on his web site as production figures.  For basically 20 years.  He figured out how to manufacture a convincing heat seal.

Somewhere around 1000 of them have been graded by AFA, most 85 or 90.  Some have sold for $1K +.  They were all thought to be genuine until a guy named Joiner posted about the scam to SWFU(c)K a week ago.

So there's tons of fraudulent pieces out there.  The Vintage Palitoy and German markets are going to crater.  AFA lost a ton of credibility.  Dog and cats living together...
