I seem to have more Batmen then I thought, as I keep remembering places that I store toys. Poor Justice Lord Batman has been in package for so long, his cape has plastic dust decay. Besides the decay, he is a really nice figure. Now I need to remember where I placed my Batman/Joker mini cereal figures; where the heck did those go? With a purchase of a few cool Batmen today on Ebay, I just might crack 50 Batmen by the end of next week!

Here we go on another Tail Spin. I picked up season one last week on a great deal at Costco. $8.99 for a full season. I used to love this show. Nothing better than adventurous plane rides. I had a great time watching these classic episodes, until on episode 4 I caught something that didn't sound right. I let my friend Thatboywhite, borrow and listen too, and he recorded it. Note that when the subtitles are on, there is clearly three words said, not just too. What did he really say???
Still a great classic show.

A coworker and I were joking about this action figure the other day. He had bought it at a client's game store, thinking it was so obscure of a toy to make. Yes, they make a Star Wars figure for everything, but what little kid would have enjoyment playing with a knocked up Padme? It's not like she could go into battle, that's not a smart mother...
I guess if your are one of THOSE kids, you could reenact certain things, and with the shirtless Anakin Action figure, its much easier. Just look how she admires his snail ink tattoo.
But after those events, there is not much left to play except Star Wars General Hospital.
I guess the theme could then be, Who's the father...
A small protocol droid, could mean C3P-0.
Jar Jar wouldn't last long after this shocker.
At the very least, Chewbacca was able to pull off twins.
...And that ain't right.

Batman and Robin are not a bad set. As for the rest of the Justice Young, I will get more only if I am needing the nourishment of another Happy Meal in the next couple of weeks.

Robin here is probably the best of the line, (maybe Batman and Superman okay too, we'll see soon). His bike wheels don't spin, but another hidden base wheel does, shooting the front weapons out at different times (which is pretty cool, as most toys only wimp out with one projectile. Mostly black plastic with a little paint. I guess I will save him until the 4th of July, he-he-he. What is a amazing is his uncanny resemblance to Charlie Sheen...

I am so confused with what is coming out for early news on the next GI Joe movie. I don't know where to start, everything is so conflicting!
Good News: There is a sequel! Even though I blindly loved the last movie, its hard to believe they will be able to continue on that story line. If its really a mess, please wait a couple years and reboot. Next summer 2012 release? Serious, it will be buried by so much competition. Hasbro, please hire me as a consultant!!!
Good/Bad News: New Director! Some guy, Jon Chu, who did the 'Step it Up' movie sequels. I don't really think this is good or bad. I have seen many directors shine when they finally get their chance, and many great directors tank when they get their last, so I think this will be good?
Good News: Zombieland writers! That movie rocked, I hope they continue the wave.
Bad News: Sienna Miller out as Baroness (and maybe Rachel Nichols, as Scarlett). I can understand Sienna, it wasn't her gig, she can be replaced. BUT Scarlett, uh this is a GI joe movie right? So, if they start replacing everyone, or start omitting key characters, PLEASE just re-start the darn franchise over.
Huh? News: Rachel Nichols says only Duke, Snake Eyes, and Storm Shadow are returning. Thats going to be really hard to believe, since Storm Shadow died in the last movie. At least bring back someone who survived. I don't want a GI Joe movie with just a few characters, and I don't want to see a whole bunch of new guys at once. Arrrg, and if Dennis Quaid doesn't reprise Hawk...
So yeah, a mess of feelings. At this point, I sadly see this not ending well, and me being very sad. How is it that the new Cartoons, and comics are done so well, and the movie situation not. Who at Hasbro is running this thing into a wall??? I hope when more news comes available, it will calm my uneasiness.

The Game Board is pretty unique, being a creepy cemetery with headstones as your markers.
The picture below shows the winner is red.

Its hard not to pick one of these up in every color, thank you Hot Wheels. Looking for the gold one too. A spiffy Yahoo Autos Article/Forbes today appeared on the DeLorean cars comeback. Also a few notes at the bottom on the Hot Wheels toys, and yeah, a Back to the Future version soon!
