TMNT Toys in the Wild: Original Comic Book Leonardo & Michelangelo

TMNT Toys in the Wild: Original Comic Book Leonardo & Michelangelo

It was just very recently I saw something about exclusive figure-and-comic Leo & Mikey “Original Comic Book” versions. Of course, those are to be “Exclusive” to Toys R Us.

However, I found the “basic” figures at Target recently for $1 cheaper than usual (on sale this week), and opted to go with these rather than waste time and money later trying to “hunt” them down.

I definitely like the look,…

The Weekly Haul - Week of October 15th, 2014

The Weekly Haul – Week of October 15th, 2014

While it could have been a small-ish week, this proved–yet again–to be another HUGE week, as far as my desires for a $10-$20 week are concerned.

weekly_haul_october_15th_2014a

Turok and Magnus both out, as well as Unity and Q2: Quantum and Woody for Valiant, both TMNT books from IDW, and the DC weeklies. I’m far enough behind on Futures End that I let that stay behind, with the intent I’ll catch up next week. Not likely at…

Spoilers on The Death of Wolverine

Spoilers on The Death of Wolverine

deathofwolverineshiny004b

Yeah…spoilers.

I’m gonna spoil the thing.

That means I’m definitely giving away how the issue ends.

Talking about how it ends means the issue and series will be spoiled.

Beyond the title itself being a spoiler.

‘Cuz I’m gonna spoil the details of how he dies, etc. And I’m going to assume you’ve read the issue if you’re reading this, or you don’t care.

From here on, the blame’s on you, Bub.

On NOT Buying X-Men: Days of Future Past

On NOT Buying X-Men: Days of Future Past

This is the second major disappointment for me, for a movie on home release that I was previously QUITE looking forward to purchasing.

xdofp_01

After being pretty satisfied last year with the BR3D/BRD/DVD/Digital release last year of The Wolverine, I thought for sure I’d be ok with X-Men: Days of Future Past. BUUUUUT…. The so-called “Ultimate Edition” is Blu-Ray 3D, Blu-Ray, and Digital.

Where the HECK…

Acquiring The Superman Files

Acquiring The Superman Files

I vaguely recall “hearing” about this book last year and being mildly interested, but due to price never followed up with it. I saw it again several weeks ago at a Barnes and Noble or Booksamillion “on sale” for about $40 or $50ish, but still passed on it.

supermanfiles_photo01

Then a couple weeks ago I saw it at a Half-Price Books, but passed on it due to financial constraints…mainly tied to all those 3-D covers…

TMNT Toys Then And Now: Mutagen Man

TMNT Toys Then And Now: Mutagen Man

It’s rather cool having the various iterations of certain characters through the years.

Here’s Mutagen Man.

tmnttoys_thenandnow_mutagenman01

I only remember one single episode with the character in the “classic” TMNT series, and I’m pretty sure the toy came first–that I was excited to see the character in the show, already having the action figure.

The figure has a cap on the top where you could insert “ooze” (sold separately,…

The Weekly Haul - Week of October 8th, 2014

The Weekly Haul – Week of October 8th, 2014

While not a SMALL week, this was a decent week of comics, with 2 promo-priced $1 issues in the bunch.

weekly_haul_october_8th_2014a

I’ve been looking forward to the X-O Manowar #0 most out of this bunch. With Soule soon leaving Superman/Wonder Woman I might be jumping “off,” as it IS a $3.99 book. And I’m far preferring DC‘s $2.99 stuff…

Bargain Bin Haul - Week of October 1st, 2014

Bargain Bin Haul – Week of October 1st, 2014

After taking some time off of rummaging through the bargain-bins, with not having a bunch of expensive 3-D DC books, I snagged a handful of quasi-random books so I can read ‘em sooner than not without having to dig through my own boxes.

Seven Deadly Sins of Book Lovers [misc]

Seven Deadly Sins of Book Lovers [misc]

I found this at http://myhomeofbooks.bookblog.io/ but wasn’t tagged. Still, an interesting topic for a blog post, so here goes.

1. Greed: What is your most expensive book?

As far as what I paid for it…probably a textbook from grad school. As far as comics…probably my Death and Return of Superman Omnibus…though it’s likely I’ll soon break that “record” with one or more of the Valiant Classic…

Despite expecting a rather small week, this was far larger a week than I even wanted!

At least Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon seem to have split after at LEAST two months of being released same-day. Action Comics and Armor HUnters: Aftermath cap of respective sagas. And Eventually I’ll get around to having Bleeding Cool removed from my pulls. Occasional decent articles, but nothing worth the…

Last Week’s Books Reviewed (Week of 9/24)

Last Week’s Books Reviewed (Week of 9/24)

Over the weekend, I posted several reviews. Excerpts below, or click the cover/links to go to the full text of the reviews.

Futures End: Booster Gold #1

The “hope,” the potential weightiness of this single, short issue’s story…the possibility that I’ve just read a new Dan Jurgensstory involving “my” Booster Gold…the attractive cover, the sturdiness of the physical cover…this all lends to the…
