Equipment: Marvel Select Star-Lord Action Figure from Diamond Select Toys

I have been a big fan of the Marvel Select figures from Diamond Select Toys for years. My favorite is still the Hawkeye figure from The Avengers (2014). It could be because that was my first Marvel Select or maybe it is because Hawkeye is the coolest Avenger; I can’t decide. Diamond has produced some pretty incredible looking figures. One of those cool figures is the leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Peter Quill, AKA Star-Lord.       WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR INFINITY WAR!

Equipment: The Ecto-1 Vehicle from Playmobil with Special Guest Reviewers The Red Cup Review

Ghostbusters is one of those properties that truly appeals to children of all ages. There are fans now sharing the movie with their children or in some cases their grandchildren. I guess it is fair to say that the Ghostbusters never really went out of style. That original film starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Harold Ramis as paranormal experts and was at one point the highest grossing comedy of all time. Continue reading

The behind the scene workings of films and television shows has always intrigued me.

Equipment: New Jaeger Figures of Gipsy Avenger and Bracer Phoenix from Pacific Rim: Uprising

I have to admit that giant robots will always hold a place in my heart.

By the time the 1980s rolled around I had Robotech and Transformers. Now that I am an adult I still have a love for giant robots which is why I am a fan of the Pacific Rim movies. Continue reading
