After six months of seeing the exact same figures, in the exact same peg spot, finally, finally, our local Wal-Mart had some of the wave 2 Clone Wars figures.
And sitting up front and center the only figure of the Clone Wars series that we've been interested in, Republic Commando Boss.
Joining the only Boss figure, was a single Aayla Secura, and Captain Rex. Though this may not seem like a big deal to some, to many of us who scour the toy shelves every chance we get, this is a pretty big deal.
Upon the search also came across two figures that were very disappointing; on Darth Maul cards, there were Saga Legends figures, Darth Vader and Phantom Menace Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Not a fan of these figures. Their big feature is that you press on the center of their belt and the lightsaber, which is built into their hand, lights up. The lightsaber being built in not only removes the availability of articulation in that arm, but also limits what you can do with the figure since you can't remove it either. Built in lightsabers wasn't a popular idea when Kenner did it with the very first wave of Star Wars figures, and it's not a popular one today.

Honestly we enjoyed the Sylvestor Stallone version of Judge Dredd; but Karl Urban definitely makes this version look truly bad@$$.
Other than awful CG animation and what ever that is they are saying that replaces Cowabunga, this looks like something that we plan on at least giving a chance.
Plus, they aren't aliens!

Finally a teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Judge Dredd movie! It's only 10 seconds, but it's 10 seconds of awesomeness.

Paramount announced on June 15th, 2012 that production for Ninja Turtles, a reboot film to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, has halted production.
According to sources it seems that Paramount is telling everyone that the script is not up to par. Some sources are also claiming that it's also a financial issue and that Paramount has asked for a script rewrite to bring the film down in budget.
At the moment Ninja Turtles hasn't officially hit the chopping block, but Paramount has moved it's release date back to May 2014 from it's original December 2013 date.
With this rewrite there are a few things we'd like to see...
- Remove the whole alien idea. Let them remain the Mutant Ninja Turtles
- Build off the films already released; this includes that 4th one which if you remember involved aliens.
- Keep the villain Krang, but make sure he's a representation of an established Krang, not some stupid hey we're going to make this villain completely different because we can.
- This one's very important, get rid of Michael Bay. Bay's films are great if you want hours of explosions and no real substance, but as a kid growing up on the turtles, we have higher hopes for this film.
Some time, some where there will be another Turtles movie, that's just a given. Will it be in 2014? Who knows. What we do know is that later this fall Nickelodeon has a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon premiering, and when it succeeds, Paramount will be thinking long and hard about lighting a fire under their butts and getting a move on for producing their movie.
Just in case you're not already aware, they've now done a Batman stage show.
This comes anywhere near Florida, we will so be there.

Currently facing budget constraints so for a while it's just going to be free comics for us; though we're going to try and stay on top of all the different Star Wars comics we're reading.

If everyone was so dead set on bringing Darth Maul back, then this would have worked if they hadn't brought him back for The Clone Wars animated series.

From the minds behind Mortal Kombat we get the next big game in fighter history; an all out battle between some of the greatest heroes of the DC universe; ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Injustice: Gods Among Us.
If you enjoy the other Lego video games and are a fan of The Lord of the Rings trilogy then this one is right up your alley.
