I'd wondered what journos were doing with the death of the print industry. That may well be the saddest of all possible outcomes.

Buzzfeed has writers? I just assumed it was a GIF-aggregation algorithm.

I feel he's responsible for pretty much all of the wooden acting in the prequels - there's too much Prequel-bashing that goes around. Has there ever been an origin story of anything that was really worthwhile, or better than the source material? You already know what the end result is, how can the ...

It's got a fair number, though not as many as I expected. The lowest level has cells, and the uppermost is all viewscreens. I love that the eye is attached to a ship's wheel, though; it's one of those nice hints of absurdity that the old toys did so well.

My best friend bought me the original TMNT Mutant Module, though it's missing a few bits, and my wife gave me my anniversary gift: The Motha****in' Technodrome! Man, I wanted this thing as a kid. It's enormous by adult standards, so it would have been monstrous back then. Never really bought the veh...

Ultimately, I'd be most interested in something akin to Cracked's After Hours. Most of the minutae has been covered to death several times over, but if you find a way to tie it together and make an overall point about Transformers as a whole, that's what's going to set you apart. As for the RPG stuf...

Now that they have a kid, it's more likely to be passive-aggressive sniping about the kid.

So, you know, comedy gold.

Personally, I'd be more interested in more esoteric subject matter. There are no shortage of reviews all over the internet, so I think if you have something different and unusual to say about the fandom in general, or the media in particular, that's where the sweet spot is going to lie. That's not t...

The Creature from the Black Lagoon, as I'm scaly, have webbed toes, and am terrible with women.

Probably. I just find it odd that it happened so quickly. Took them forever to kill off Boy Blue, seems like they maybe could've split the difference.

I agree, which is why I haven't collected any of the BAFs in some time. It was one thing when they did the Sentinel and Galactus, but once they started doing the normal-sized figures in pieces, I wrote it off. The fact that they've gotten me onboard with Hobgoblin is surprising, but I certainly won'...

Picked up the last three volume from Amazon, having been failry shit at keeping up lately. Plowed through them in short order, and I have to say, it was a nice send-off. Much as I'll miss the series, I'd much rather they wrap it up than it limp along indefinitely like so many do. A few of the bloodi...

I'm really liking him. I love that his hands are something other than a closed fist, meaning that you get to have him in some talon-y poses. The blue is nice, though I agree the fact that it's the wrong color entirely is frustrating; unfortunately, it's a natural consequence of the comic art, and ju...

I picked up the Marvel Legends Spider-man 2099, as I'd made up my mind to do so if I saw another one.
