Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog is Back!

unnamed

   So I found out that I could play an old favorite from my late teens on my device! Sonic is back, and I need to relearn a new control system. I only played through the first level, but it was fun, even though I thoroughly sucked at it. It was a blast nonetheless.  My platform is Android, but I think that it is also available for the iOS too.

   Will this bring me back into the world of gaming? Probably not. Casual fun? Heck yeah!

Vintage Collection: Skeletor, back on his own two feet.

   What do we have here? Just a Skeletor. A Skeletor missing his sword. Yep. When I received this guy, his legs were not attached. Days before I found another MotU figure with its legs hot-glued in place. I took them apart, and painstakingly removed the ton of glue out of the figure. The figure was my dry run for practicing the repair method of He-Man figure legs. I did “OK” with the first figure and I felt that I could do a nice job on Skeletor. Long story less long, I think I did pretty alright. He stands on his own and is ready to storm Castle Greyskull once more.

The Rocketeer ~ 21 June 1991

The Rocketeer premiered in theaters 26 years ago today, June 21, 1991.

   It’s still a fun movie. I am a sucker for period films, and any movie that has some solid Nazi punching is aces in my book.

Farewell, Old Chum…

   Growing up in the 1970’s, Adam West was the only Batman I knew. There was no other. Sure there was Olan Soule, from the Super Friends, but still. I was one of the few who didn’t make fun of the original series when the 1989 movie came out. Everybody I know did. I still loved it. There was room in my fandom for both, and there still is. Thanks for the memories, Bat and otherwise, Adam. You shall be missed.

   This has to be the absolute ultimate version of Logan! I’ve seen it touted as a “Classic” version of Wolverine, but the outfit isn’t the original togs that he donned back in his first appearances in The Incredible Hulk or even in Giant-Sized X-Men. It’s still a sweet looking figure. We’ve all been fooled by looks before, but I’ve heard some great things about Revoltech.
