Pretty much the definition of long odds, in my book, but How does this toy Aang fare?

4A-7 Spy Droid (Clone Wars)

Seen only in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie from 2008 and released by Hasbro in the third wave of figures from their Clone Wars line, 4A-7 appears to be an Arakyd Industries RA7 series droid, although from the neck down the basic structure is that of a Cybot Galactica’s 3PO series protocol droid.

Iron Monger – Iron Man 2

While I was waiting for Iron Man 2 to come out, I thought it would be a good time to revisit the first film on DVD. I was surprised to find out there was a good part of that I hadn’t remembered. One thing that I didn’t forget was the battle royal at the end between Iron […]
