I have never really been a Black Friday shopper. I know many people where Black Friday is as much of a family tradition as Thanksgiving itself. I have nothing against it, I just rather spend that time eating left overs and decorating for Christmas. This year could be different though, thanks to Lego. You see their highly anticipated 1989 Batmobile will go on sale Black Friday. I know there is the internet and I could just order it online from the comfort of my home, but where is the fun in that?
So, I was at the mall this past weekend and decided to swing past the Lego Store to do a little recon. The guy working the floor was just as excited as I was when I asked him about it. He replied, “I got a surprise for you, we just finished building it.” He then ran to the back to grab it so I could drool on it in person. (more…)
If you weren’t at Yestercades this past weekend for NECA’s fan event, you missed a good time. The event was well done in a nostalgic environment that would make any toy nerd happy. NECA had a few recent and upcoming releases on display, as well as a few new reveals. I was able to take a few photos but not as many as I would have liked. I was more focused on talking to the NECA gang and meeting some of the other NECA enthusiasts. Being that I’m socially awkward, I don’t think I did a good job in that department. It was nice to finally put a few faces with the names though. (more…)
Thanks to Mattel and Slim Jim, the legend of Randy Savage continues with the SDCC Exclusive action figure. SI.com revealed the figure in all its glory this morning.
Basically the figure will be available at SDCC later this summer. If you can’t make it to the con, it will be available at Entertainment Earth June 18th at 9AM pacific time for $29.99.
