Blog Update - Abbey Road Blues



I'll admit that it's been nearly a month since my last post but I've just been too busy with life but beginning with this post I hope to post more very soon.

If you're a fan of The Beatles, and I'm a huge one, then you'd know that The Beatles last album, Abbey Road, was released on September 26th, 1969 and today, September 27th, 2019, the 50th Anniversary Edition was released.

After releasing Sgt Peppers and The White Album 50th Anniversary's over the last two years I knew they would be doing the same for Abbey Road so when it was announced I went on Amazon and ordered it. I bought the two different releases, the main CD Super Deluxe edition which comes with the remastered album on CD as well as two extra Cd's containing demos, alternative takes, and remixes called Sessions. This set also comes with the album on Blu Ray audio as well as Dolby Atmos which is a first for a Beatles release. Finally, it comes with a 100-page hardcover book.

Action Comics 1 Review

You'll believe a man can kick the crap out of a car


On April 18th, 1938 a new comic book was issued by National Allied Publications (later DC) called Action Comics and it changed the world. Action Comics was an anthology comic that contained a number of different stories in it but there was one that was different from the run of the mill gangster and western stories about a man that had super strength and could leap tall buildings.

Nano Metalfigs Gizmoduck DS21 Miniature Figure Review

Blathering Blatherskite!

Today I bring you a review of one of my favorite characters from Disney's Duck Tales, Gizmoduck. In Duckberg his name is Fenton Crackshell, a mild-mannered accountant who works for Scrooge McDuck. Scrooge decided he needed a superhero to guard his Money Bin so he had the Gizmosuit built and hired Crackshell to don the suit and become the Duckberg hero Gizmoduck.

Up next we have a Leonardo 7 inch action figure based upon his appearance in the 1990 movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by NECA. Now if you're a fan of the movie you may have been confused by the song Turtle Power by Partners In Kryme. In the song, it says, "Raphael, he's the leader of the group" but we all know that Leo is the leader of the group.

Toy Animal Miniatures



One of the reasons that I played Episode 2 of my After The Horsemen Campaign with graph paper was because I didn't have animal miniatures. So one day I found some plastic animals that my daughter had. She said she didn't want them anymore so I took them so this post I'll show you how I improved them for the table.

Masters Of The Universe Classics Movie Action Figures Reveal by Super7



While I haven't talked about it a lot my favorite movie of all time is the 1987 Live Action Masters Of The Universe movie as anyone who knows me knows. While it wasn't quite what people wanted when it came out, no Battlecat or Orko among other things, I loved it and still do.

Anyway, over the years MattyCollector and now Super7 have released some figures from that -------------------movie. Originally they put out a Blade, Saurod, and Gwildor which were expected since they were released in the original toy line. Finally, at the end of last year, Super7 released Karg, the first action figure released from the movie that never had a figure.

TMNT Raphael NECA 7 Inch 1990 Movie Action Figure



I previously purchased and review the 1/4 scale NECA Donatello action figure from the 1990 movie. I love the figure but I haven't purchased the others for two reasons. First is the price, over 100 dollars for one figure is a high price. I'm not saying that these figures aren't worth that price, in my opinion, they are, it's just that I can buy many action figures for the price of one of these figures. The second is the size as these 1/4 figures are big. I may eventually buy the rest of the 1/4 scale figures but for today we are looking at the 7 inch Raphael action figure.

Federation Commander Klingon Border Review




When Federation Commander was released by Amarillo Design Bureau it was designed as a way for fans to get their Star Fleet Battles fix without spending days and weeks playing and it turned out to be a success. I'm a big fan of Federation Commander and I've been able to get many of my friends to give it a try despite either fear of learning Star Fleet Battles or of not being a fan of Star Trek in general. I have to say after more than a decade that it's been a hit with everyone that I've played it with.

Commando (NES) Review


Commando is a vertical run and gun game by Capcom that was released in 1985 for the arcade. It has been ported to many different devices of the years including the Nintendo Entertainment System which is the version I played. Despite having the same name as the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie this isn't based upon that movie but if you squint your eyes while playing it you'd nearly be fooled. To keep the mood going all you have to do is yell "Get to the chopper" every time you see a helicopter.

Games Beaten In 2018



Here we go with my fourth annual Games Beaten list for 2018. To compare to how I did years past you can click here for 2017, 2016, 2015. For 2017 I finished 26 games which was my second best year. Unfortunately I only finished 14 games in 2018 which is my worst showing so far. Of course you have to take into consideration that 2018 was the worst year I've lived yet and just didn't have as much time to play as I have in years past.
