Iron Spider vs Electro

Iron Spider vs Electro

I was shopping for groceries the other day when a bright flash of color caught my eye behind the counter. It was the Iron Spider vs Electro 2-pack from the Playskool Marvel superheroes line by Hasbro.

No matter how much time I try to spend organizing tools, I can never find the right one when I need it.

First Order Snowtrooper

First Order Snowtrooper

One aspect I really enjoyed from Episode VII was the variety of environments visited by the heroes, from the arid wastes of Jakku to the alpine ranges of Starkiller Base. And of course, they encountered a suitable array of enemies on each one.

Nien Nunb (Episode VII)

Following my affinity for Star Wars aliens and droids, I was particularly happy to see Nien Nunb return to the screen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course, he was still used in a minor role but it was good to see him still on duty and even better to know Hasbro would make a new action figure of him.

In many ways, the seventh movie in the Star Wars saga felt somewhat like a rethread of themes we knew from the previous two trilogies.
