Remember that scene in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse where Miles Morales truly embraces his new Spider-Man persona? Set to that awesome “What’s Up Danger?” song by Blackway & Black Caviar? Of course you do!
Well the fine folks at Huxley Burg Studios have recreated it in LEGO form!
And if you don’t remember that scene at all, it’s conveniently available on YouTube! How’s that for nifty?
That’ll have to tide us over until Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse comes out on DVD one of these days.
It’s that time of year again! My annual roundup of the pop culture I enjoyed, just like every other website and blog worth its salt. But unlike those fancy pants websites with their paid writers and access to advanced screenings, I’m just a schlub typing away at his computer, enjoying what sweet little things come my way!
2018 has been an OK year, I guess. I don’t have any major accomplishments to brag about. I’m still working on making my own comics, with more Gamer Girl & Vixen news to come in the new year. I haven’t lost any weight, but I remain confident that maybe I will someday. And I’m not dead yet! That always counts for something.
The following list is just my favorite, most memorable shows, movies, toys and whatnot I encountered in 2018. Some things, like movies, were released on 2018. Other things, like TV shows and comics, are often ongoing and extend beyond just 2018, but they were my favorites in 2018. It’s not that complicated. And, as always, I am wholly out of touch with new music, so that’s not a category.
Feel free to share your own favorite things from the past year in the comments!
This trailer is amazing, this movie looks amazing and I can’t wait for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part!
And you should be just as excited. The first The LEGO Movie was possibly the greatest film of the past 20 years, as far as I’m concerned. So I’m super excited for this super sequel!
What a time to be a toy fan! This month, I got both the LEGO Voltron set and a proper Marvel Legends Multiple Man action figure! I’ve been crowing about wanting LEGO Voltron since at least this List of Six in 2015, and the Multiple Man action figure has been my hill to die on since at least the very first year of this blog! And now both are mine!
So how about I make some more toy predictions and hope to get lucky?
I love the Build-A-Figure concept. It’s pretty darn fun. Basically, when a new line of about half a dozen action figures come out, each box contains a part of a bigger action figure. Buy the entire line and collect each part and you can build the big one. I own a bunch from over the years. I’ve got the giant Sentinel from one of the earliest Build-A-Figure lines. I’ve got Onslaught. I’ve got the Blob. They are so much fun! And there’s one very specific big character that I want to see next…
So I’ve made a whole list of big characters who should get Build-A-Figures! Join me after the jump for the list! And please share your own wants and dreams in the comments!
Wish me luck, everybody! Today is the day that the LEGO Voltron set goes on sale online, and I will be doing my best to order that sucker before the website crashes from overload. Fingers and toes are most definitely crossed!
I love me a good LEGO model. They’re fun to put together, a relaxing hobby, and a lot of them celebrate my favorite geeky things — like Voltron, Star Wars, Ghostbusters and more. So I got to thinking, what other big LEGO models do I want to be able to build someday?
When it comes to building LEGO sets, I prefer vehicles and models over settings and playsets. There’s just something more solid and identifiable about a known vehicle, like the Batmobile, as opposed to something more abstract and open to interpretation, like the Batcave. Plus, it’s not like I’m taking these sets down and playing with them. I just want awesome geeky models to build and display on my bookshelves.
Join me after the jump for six future LEGO models I want to see and build after Voltron!
