It's Here!

1/48 Revell B-25J Mitchell

Got this in the mail. Finally it's here. As evidenced by this blog I really go nuts whenever I have a new "toy", but this one is even more special because I've been wanting to build a 1/48 B-25J Mitchell for more personal reasons.

HG Psycho Gundam Color Guide

HG Psycho Gundam Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released in 2004 as a 1/144 High Grade model kit by Bandai was the Psycho Gundam that was piloted by the Cyber Newtype known as Four in the Zeta Gundam anime series. In the anime series, the Psycho Gundam wasn't your average sized mobile suit as it was very gigantic. The Psycho Gundam and Four met a very tragic end and was one of the low points of that franchise for me.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2nd Trailer

Sweet! These are the type of trailers that I like, not enough information to spoil the movie. But then again, Star Wars as a well known franchise, can easily get away with illiciting a huge response from just a small showing of film. Can't wait to see the movie.

So Long Herb Trimpe

Got the sad news today that former Marvel artist, Herb Trimpe, passed away on April 13, 2015. Makes me sad because growing up I read G.I. Joe and Mr. Trimpe was one of the artists that helped bring the pages of those comic books to life. I found out only now that Herb Trimpe was known more his work on Hulk and Wolverine, two very iconic Marvel characters.

Marvel's Daredevil Review

Marvel's Daredevil Review

When I first heard the news that Netflix was going to make a Daredevil tv series I have to say that the news didn't elicit a response from me. Not even a shrug or a grunt to acknowledge this morsel of information that should usually get a tingle of delight for my "Make mine Marvel" wired brain. But rather the news was greeted by a click that signified my mouse had told the browser to proceed to the next topic on my feed reader. Fast forward to now and I am now 5 episodes into the series and I can't stop watching it.

1/12 R2-D2 & R5-D4 Construction Manual & Color Guide

1/12 R2-D2 & R5-D4 Construction Manual & Color Guide

From the Star Wars franchise comes the lovable R2-D2 and R5-D4 astromech droids that were released as a 1/12 scale model kit by Bandai. I kinda love the recent Star Wars releases by Bandai because they always seem to do a great job in bringing these classic characters and ships to model form. Then again, what else can you expect from Bandai?, but always the best.
