Been fooling around with some Iron Man mini-figs I found. Thought I'd share some of the fun I've been having:

Finally! Finally! I haven't been buying any new figures for the past month and I'm glad that these are now available for pre-order at BigBadToyStore. I do love the assortment and the characters they included in these two respective waves. Check out the video below to check what's included in the assortment.
(Oh, Hasbro -- where's the Jubilee wave?)

At long last it’s finally here! The Invincible Iron Man Heroclix set! I’ve been counting the days of November until the November 20 release date and I have to say, Wizkids made up for the quality control issues so pervasive in their last Heroclix set, Wolverine and the X-Men. I got my hands on two bricks of boosters, excited by the online feedback from people in Heroclix forums as well as unboxing videos on Youtube.
The booster pack artwork is spiffy... Read more

Have you ever wondered what kind of person would someone have to be to put on a costume and bear the weight of the responsibility they put upon their own shoulders? Did you ever wonder what type of mental state a man has to be in to wear a bat costume and beat people up, or to wear a devil suit to do pretty much the same thing? Well, the dudes at Sequentialink.com not only thought about it, but dove... Read more

The Philips Arena is electric tonight. The usually lukewarm Atlanta crowd is on fire this evening, because I’ve stepped foot on the court – I am the Alpha Hawk, ascendant savior point guard of a so-so Atlanta team Eastern Conference stalwarts steamroll every April. The offense flows like electricity through my fingers, because sometimes it seems like I’m the only one who can offer a spark to ignite this group.
The ball’s in my hands. I come through the lane, take... Read more

If you are well informed with tech news, you have probably heard about Snapchat’s outrageous decision to reject Facebook’s $3 billion purchase offer. Although this may seem like a terrible business decision to most people, Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel has his reasons for rejecting this offer.
Nowadays Snapchat is taking over the world by storm in photo messaging - for those who are unfamiliar with this form of social media, Snapchat is a free mobile application that allows users to send... Read more

On this site, more often than not, we're sort of guilty of fictional hero worship. We love our heroes. We love how they inspire us, how they give us an ideal we can strive for. So every now and then, when the opportunity to be heroic presents itself, I say you grab it by the hair and drag it to your cave.
For weeks now, since the devastation that Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) brought came to light, we have been seeing heroes... Read more

A few months ago, the rights to Daredevil reverted from Fox to to Marvel studios. I was glad to hear it, but given how Daredevil performed in 2003, I was less than optimistic that we'd see another Daredevil movie. It's not like Marvel chased after the rights, it's just that Fox didn't bother with it so the paperwork says they go back to Marvel after some time. So, when the news broke that Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Jessica... Read more

Casual games are taking over the gaming world, and we all know this. 70% to 90% of all gamers play casuals. And because of that, and due to relatively low development costs, we've seen a massive influx of casual games on the very widespread platforms of Android and iOS. So, to be competitive in this gaming environment, a game has to be something special. And for a casual game to succeed, it has to have three things - ease of... Read more

I think that, in a sense, all comic book fans are lovers of visual arts. Besides the stories, the art is what initially draws us in as fans. As aspiring student photographers, you guys should be drawn to Php 50 grand and this sweet camera.
For 28 years, PLDT and Directory Philippines Corporation have been holding their annual Visual Arts Competition. It's a celebration of art and it's used to determine which photo is to be used on the cover of... Read more

When the rumors about the rebranding and revamping of the famous toy line, Marvel Legends, came up and spread like wildfire, a lot was skeptical about it and all. Among those who doubted the future of the line was me. I won't expound upon what may or will happen to the line but one thing's for sure, it will continue.
Just a few months after the announcement, Hasbro released a few more set of characters that is bound to be released... Read more

Thor: The Dark World is the sequel to 2011's Thor. It was directed by Alan Taylor and stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Christopher Eccleston, and Natalie Portman. I'm not the best at reviewing movies since normally my take on these things is purely based on my enjoyment and I rarely take into consideration things cinephiles normally would - things like camera angles and cinematography. So this is the uneducated movie-goer review, I guess.
And while I'm going to try... Read more

If there is any company guilty of near-shameless monopoly and overexposure right now, it’s certainly the WWE. The utter domination of the mainstream professional wrestling scene not only in America, but all over the world, coupled with the comical mismanagement and the general lack of resources of its competitors to keep up allows them to force-feed the Vince McMahon product to viewers who don’t know any better. Sometimes, it’s palatable, if not tolerable, but some other times, VKM’s complacency allows... Read more

Finally! Finally! Finally! Got the variant Deadpool from Return of Marvel Legends Wave 3! Now that I have it, well, I have to say it's just the same as the old one from the Hasbro Marvel Legends 2-Pack. Oh, if you guys were there during the release of the Hasbro Marvel Legends 2-Pack and MU figs, ugh, that was a grueling but fun wait! Me and Bim were there! Anyway, I'd love to discuss who Deadpool is but pretty much... Read more
