Hard Copy: The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review

I must admit that it isn’t a surprise that Star Wars: The Last Jedi has held the top box office spot since its premiere 3 weeks ago. One of the main reasons for this box office supremacy would be the fact that the kids that grew up with Star Wars are now sharing the wonders of a galaxy far, far away with their children. The generational popularity of Star Wars isn’t just because of the script but also the look of the film. The beauty of what appears on screen helps to pull us into these imaginary worlds.

Equipment: Marvel Legends 12 Inch Hulk Action Figure Review

Nowadays, if you want a 12-inch action figure, similar to the original G.I. Joes, it is nearly impossible. Sure, you can pick up the 12-inch figures in Hasbro’s Titan Hero Series but those figures have limited poseability. I believe on the average they have 5 points of articulation. Don’t get me wrong, these are perfect for little kids but not for older collectors. There are figures out there that are loaded with poseability for hours of enjoyment but buying those figures means you better have a large bank account and be prepared to use them for “display only.” These higher end figures are beautiful but not everyone has hundreds to spend on a single figure.
