I know it's a little early yet, but anyone going to NYCC this year?

Press passes already approved.  I'll be there Saturday and Sunday.

I finally just looked at this kickstarter.  That's actually some excellent work they have going on.

I'm thinking about pledging so that I can order the Screaming Eagle.  Maybe package 6.

Hmmmm....

I was in TRU on Saturday and completely forgot to look for the Pacific Rim toys! Argh!  Good chance they wouldn't have had them anyway, but I just saw this thread and now I'm pissed at myself.

I wouldn't mind having a Gipsy Danger figure, I like the design.

I still see a lot of Thor and IM figures at Five Below and Ollie's around here.  They may have a smaller line but I can't see them not overshipping it and dooming any future waves.

We'll see...

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: X-Men/Wolverine Movies

I didn't love it or hate it.  I thought it was good but didn't completely live up to the potential that was there.  I thought Logan dealing with Jean's death was better done than Tony Stark's anxiety attacks in IM3 and thought it did some good things for his character.

I liked most of the fights and action but there were a few times where I didn't feel like the director let the actors and choreography work, too many quick cuts that distracted more than anything.

The scene during the credits blew me away!  I can not wait for the next X-Men movie after that.  I would recommend going to see it.  If you like Jackman as Wolverine I think you'll really love this movie.  I felt like there was more for Jackman to do with the character this time around, it wasn't all berserker rage.

I did write a review if anyone is interested: The Wolverine

I think they're doing an 18" Gipsy Danger.

I saw it last night and really liked it.  I agree that Hunnam didn't show much range but I wasn't really there for the pilots, I was there for the gigantic mechs and monsters. 

I disagree on Charlie Day and Ron Perlman, this builds on a lot of the Japanese Anime and Godzilla type movies and those always have that one character that's annoying but thrown in for humor...that was Day and Perlman (to a lesser extent).

I would have liked to have seen more of the other pilots also, but that wasn't a deal breaker for me.

Rumors starting to kick around today have Star Wars VII coming May 29, 2015.  I'll believe it when we hear there's actually a script.

Apparently a new actress has already been added to the Spider-Man film and while there's no character name associated w/ her, rumors are she might be the MJ replacement:

Sarah Gadon

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Xbox One
« on: June 7, 2013, 10:43 AM »
I really like how they assume everyone with an Xbox One will have a broadband connection.  I saw some comments on another site covering this and the people there pretty much said that if you're too poor to have a broadband connection you shouldn't have an Xbox anyway, completely ignoring that fact that there are still a lot of places in the US where you can't get broadband even if you wanted it.  Unless, maybe, you can get satellite.

We have people in our service area here in upstate NY that don't have access to it because it's so rural that Time Warner won't build out their service and Verizon doesn't have COs close enough to provide DSL...hell, Verizon doesn't even have FIOS in that many areas here yet.

I'm assuming Playstation will have similar requirements on some of the used games and whatnot, but the new Microsoft policies are crap and I'm hoping it completely backfires on them...sort of like Windows 8.

I've been pretty indifferent for this movie until just recently and now I'm starting to get excited.

I only have a handful of figs outside the 1:18 scale that I've purchased because I really wanted them.  I'm only in for the R2 out of Hasbro's new 6" Black Series.  I'd also do Yoda and an AT-AT Driver, but that's about it.
