That is really the optimal way to display figures of any type. Raising it up to be under each armpit is how I did it for the longest time but it can be limiting. Going "the crotch route" can get a lot of cooler poses out of the figure at least in my experience.

That's a pretty amazing action figure.  I've avoided Hot Toys to this point, but that's going to be tough to resist.

Staying with a winner

No brainer.  Great decision.  Hadn't heard about the live TV show though - that's interesting!

Definitely good news.  Whedon definitely had a strong grasp on how to make these characters work together on-screen. 

Obviously there are lots of questions.  Will the ranks of the Avengers grow?  Will other Avengers leave the team?  And then there were the rumblings about bringing Galactus & the Silver Surfer into the Marvel Studios fold.  The possibilities are almost endless.

As for Avengers related projects?  There seem to be so many that it'll make your head spin!

Iron Man 3 (2013)

Thor - The Dark World (2013)

Captain America:  Winter Soldier (2014)

Ant-Man (No release date)

Nick Fury (No release date)

...And Mark Ruffalo has been signed to a multi-film deal as well.  Whoa!

It just unbelievable how well they're pulling this whole thing off.  If this next run lives up to its predecessors, it'll be up there with the Harry Potter series in terms of cinematic accomplishments.

Somehow, I doubt he cares...dude dumped Salma Hayek. He clearly does not think like the rest of us. LOL.

Man, that may even be an understatement.  Harry Potter was ambitious, but it's essentially just a long series.  Marvel's been able to do multiple stand alone movies that perform well, and then dovetail into the team-up event movie...I can't think of anything like that other than comic-book cross overs.  But certainly, nothing like it has been done in TV or cinema.

Avengers is set to come out on DVD & BluRay next month.  So why not check out the gag reel in the mean time?

A SHIELD pilot?  Definitely interesting.  Although I am a little bummed that it (probably) wouldn't include Agent Coulson.  By the time Thor rolled around he became a pretty cool character.

And does Cobie Smulders wind up starring this?
