I got to watch the Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie, and it was a amazing movie, so there no surprise that Captain America was the big winner at the weekend box office as it kicked off the summer movie season a month early with an estimated $96.2 million, a new box office record for April. While overseas the film, which opened last weekend, has already earned $207.1 million, which was more then the first Captain America movie had made during its entire run outside of North America. This is definitely a movie that any action movie or comic book lover should go check out.

Artist Spotlight!: Paul Hetherington


0

Hello there geek lovers, today I got for you all the showcase of a amazing toy artist, this is the Joker themed LEGO funhouse built by LEGOmaniac Paul Hetherington. The build is amazing, but what makes it even more amzingly impressive when you see the video and realize that parts of the build is actully animated.

“Paul Hetherington did more than merely build this colorful funhouse lair for the Joker; he also animated so that Poison Ivy’s plants chomp, the Riddler runs his decoder, Penguin and his birds enjoy the Rocket Ride, and Batman and Robin do their best to stop their wicked fun.”

You really have to see the video to appreciate the piece, it is absolutely mind blowing with the level of detail and imagination that was put into the LEGO diarama. This piece is so amazing that Hetherington won Best in Show at this year’s BrickCon. I am absolutely blown away at the level of talent and dedication this guy put into building this, sometimes I could never think howfar you can take LEGO.

Toy Review: Bearvengers N°2 – Captain Bear


20121220-003011.jpg

Hey everyone! I’m back with toy review number two! It’s Captain Bear, the second in the Bearvengers series. So my review is definitely late as he was released in September, but I still think he’s worth a look!

Once again using the Bandai Beargguy as a base Figurine has realeased the second installment of there Bearvengers series – Captain Bear.

Captain Bear is movable but remember he’s hand painted so figurine advises not to manipulate him too much incase it damages his paintwork.

The finish on captain bear is definitely of high quality and cant really be faulted. I personally love this toy and can’t wait for the rest of the series – but I’m an Avengersphile, and the cuteness of them being bears appeals to my girly side!

There is one difference between the actual captain bear figure and the one pictured in group shot (In the previous article) – the shield. In the group shot the shield is kind of big in comparison to the figure and it features the classic captain America star, but the actual figure comes with a much smaller shield and the star has been replaced with a much cuter and befitting bear. Although I personally think they should change the star on the costume for the bear and the “A” for a “B”, I think that would set him off perfectly.

Captain Bear was selling for $129 on the Character M site, but is currently sold out.

Toy Review: Bearvengers N°1 – Iron Bear


20121220-005018.jpg

Hi all! So here I am with my first ever toy review! Iron Bear from the Bearvengers series – which I already love! Unfortunately this is super late and Iron Bear is no longer available, but theres no harm in looking right?

Created from the Bandai Beargguy base, Figurine has released the first instalment of there Bearvengers series – Iron Bear.

Now I’m a huge Iron Man fan, who has a weakness for the cuteness of bears – so this is right up my street!

These toys are hand painted so manipulation should be kept to a minimum to avoid damage. I personally think the finish is amazing and hopefully I’ll be able to get the full set!

Other than that, there’s not much more to be said! Enjoy the photos!
