TOY REVIEW: Hot Toys ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Spider-Man 1/6th Scale Figure

- 10-18-14Featured, Nerd Culture, reviews Posted by Luke Gallagher

SMfeature1

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a hard movie to like. It was a highly uneven sort of mess, an incoherent hodgepodge of a story/ideas and villains without a semblance of motive or substance. The film did, however, have some good qualities. It looked pretty (effects and action sequences were a true splendor). Andrew Garfield makes for a great Spidey (perfect balance of cocky and snarky). The relationship between Parker/Gwen was played out well (genuine and infectious chemistry). Above all else, this is probably the best Spider-man has ever looked on-screen… like ever. The suit design this time around is without question the closest comic-to-screen realization. When some fans grumbled that 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man‘s suit strayed too far from the look of the original comics (it had a BMX biker look to it and drew in an uncomfortable amount of attention to Garfields crotch), the filmmakers listened. They got it spot on with the eyes, belt, logo, and colors.

And wouldn’t you know it (how’s this for a segway), Sideshow Collectibles (via Hot Toy) has transformed Andrew Garfield’s incarnation of Spidey into a figure. Never has Spider-Man looked so good on-screen and I can say the same about this figure – never has a SM toy looked so damn good. OK, there was that one time in the 90s when Toy Biz made Beach Rescue and Safari Footage Spidey which were the pinnacles of Spider-Man figures (note the sarcasm). But I digress. Sideshow was kind enough to send us The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Spider-Man figure from Hot Toys for review. It made our Spider-sense – aka nerd-sense – tingle in all the right places (well mostly).  (more…)

An Incoherent Cyborg and a Lumberjack Luke Skywalker in ‘Episode VII’?

- 10-02-14Film Posted by Luke Gallagher

This is how Luke Skywalker looks in the new Star Wars

Star Wars Episode VII: Title TBD is still over a year away, but rumor and innuendo and speculation are  speeding by faster than Jabba’s sail barge circling the dune sea. We’ve only been parsed out pieces of  information about the continuing story of Luke, Han, and the former Rebel Alliance, which may or may  not be pieces of misinformation or misdirection. Badass Digest  has released a bit of  info concerning Episode VII that, while it may or not be accurate, does give a glimpse out the Millennium  Falcon’s porthole what we might expect at the beginning of the film beyond the tradition yellow crawl  and John Williams music echoing in the background.
