Oh Boy, Green Lantern toys and a rare appearance of Dan Lantern? This is the best day ever!
I hate to say I only saw the opening Green Lantern Animated first episode, I lost my Cable connection after that. It wasn't bad, better than expected as the animation looked kind of plane. But with plane came lots of other neat stuff that wasn't expected. Good story, lots of action, not laziness. I will be sure to watch a season when its all said and done.

A lifelong goal has been reached, last week I acquired the Toll Bridge set, which completes all 15 original Micro Machine City fold-up blocks. This tiny city has amazed me for years, and hope for years to come. I still need to get the next wave of sets like the City Hall and Bank, but those get spendy as they are the Bengali Pumy-ra and Linx-O of Micro Machines. So here is a lengthy review. If you find too long, I recommend the 1.5x speed, its very silly.

So it looks like I have two fire starters now, and one fire extinguisher.
I wonder how these guys get along in the break room?
Yeah, that's about what I thought.

I have to say it, I really enjoy my new Cannon EOS T3i. I barely set these guys up, and with just a couple of half assed clicks, I had some awesome results. It would have taken over 30 shots with my old Camera, and still look awful. To think if I used a Tripod and adjusted the lighting and settings just a little more, these guys would have look even better.
I was doing a shoot for a pal, and I had to gather my Stormies and Clonies together. I do have a few more around in storage, which I should find, and do a larger group photo. I didn't realize I had even this many. I wonder how many I have total... 20?

Well here we go again. Its really a bummer, to get the video safely approved, I had to reduce from 720, add a silly Directors plug, remove a short song that should be royalty free, and add bongos. I am mainly annoyed with the non 720, as it used to look so clean. It should still be a fun watch, and I hope you enjoy.

While I try and figure out what to do with the Epic 80's Vehicle Battle debacle, Here is a quick review on a Moshi Monster. I caught a commercial the other day and thought, I would like to see one up close. Not that exciting, I guess if I had 100 more...

I go to play, it no there! Well yes, I temporarily had to suspend it. Even though all content was created by me, with royalty free stock sound effects and music owned by me included, the YouTube filters think I didn't create it or own it, and they won't allow advertising on it. Thats a big deal, if you want to keep the door open for partnership stati in the future. So I have to go through and see what is tweaking sensors off. Yes it is mainly a parody of GI Joe, but I changed the logos, and redrew the vehicles in my own way and I doubt the sensors saw that anyways. It could be picking up on all the sounds so I may have to dumb those down or something. Again they are all common stock sound effects with no value. What is really silly, is that its probably going to be a low view level video, with no real intent on copyrighting anyone. Just something cool I made, that I wanted to share, and get a tiny tiny tiny bit back from. So give me a few days to sort this out.

You know when my post count is low, I am working feverishly on some sort of top secret project that I have hinted about before. Well its nearing completion, and it might, MIGHT, be ready tomorrow night vs July 2014. It all depends on my satisfaction with the sound effects, but so far, even I am blown away, not to pat my own back. The detail has been insane, as I had to totally redraw the HAVOC. Originally I drew it from the point of view that it was an actual vehicle, and added space for more engine and machinery components. After much thought, I decided I wanted it to resemble the toy as close as I could get. I think it will play well, not that its the only star of the show. So yeah, lets hope I can get this done, check back soon for total war...

I first wanted nothing to do with this toy line, as I still remember quite clearly my obsession with Hasbro's Attactix game line, and its killing. I was hopped up on Goof Balls or something, so I purchased Optimus Prime and Starscream. Maybe I wanted Prime for my shelf of Primes.

I have been waiting for these for what feels like an eternity! Finally the Transformers Prime Happy Meal toys are out!!! Overall, I think they are totally awesome. Yes, they are pretty much stuck in vehicle form, but that's better than a bunch of mismatching toys, right? They look great together, and their colors really pop. A few have some really nice action features, others so-so. They are slightly larger than Hot Wheels for size which makes them a little more fun too. Please watch my humdinger of a review, to get all the spifftacular details.
