The Card That Almost Ruined Star Wars For Me

Warning: Spoilers Ahead for “The Empire Strikes Back” If only we had spoiler warnings like that when I was a kid. Sure there was a what everybody considered a bigger spoiler for Episode 5 of Star Wars, but Han’s state at the end of the movie is what got me. I was really into Star […]

Deadpool Should be rated…?

I’ve been laughing at all the memes going around about folks wanting Deadpool to have a PG-13 version. I was hanging in there with the comics crowd who were applauding the decision to make it rated R. I get it. They want violence. They want swearing. They want their hero to be the deadly smart […]

Has Star Wars Ruined Star Wars For Me?

I had tweeted a reply to the Ginger Prince regarding Star Wars: The Force Awakens the other day. And I realized a couple of things. (If you don’t follow him, @TGP73 is a great gentleman fan of the Star Wars world and a HUGE Admiral Ackbar Fan.) The first thing I realized was I’m just […]

And The Winner Is….

Well. It’s all over. You have voted and the winner is…Superman. I’m not really surprised, but I really thought Batman was going to win this one. It was close, for the longest time it was deadlocked at 50/50. Just a testament to the fans of both heroes. In retrospect, I’m glad to see Supes on […]

Marvel Vs DC Hero Bracket -Round 4 Voting Open!

It amazes me how much tougher this is getting. Round three saw one of the bigger Marvel Heroes eliminated by another Marvel Hero when Rouge squeaked by to take out Wolverine. Death of Wolverine is out right now isn’t it? Green Lantern managed to take down Silver Surfer in the cosmic battle. All of this has […]

Marvel Vs. DC Hero Bracket – Round 3 Voting Open!

This just keeps getting harder. For starter, Batman continues to be a powerhouse. Aquaman received no votes against the Dark Knight and was sunk. Also, Thor pound Lobo.

Marvel vs. DC – You Decide who comes out on top!

Bracket challenges are big with sports here in the US, so why not a a superhero one? Being TV and Film toys, I wanted to make it a bit more interesting. I based the heroes and seeding on their screen and video game appearances roughly. I had to tweak it a bit though. Essentially, this Marvel […]

Engineernerd’s 2013

In terms of toy collecting, 2013 was essentially more of 2012 for me. Some surprises. Some disappointments. Overall not a bad year, but not the best since I’ve been collecting. One of the upsides to 2013 was G.I. Joe for me. With a new movie and figures, I’ve had a lot of fun rekindling that […]

2013 Year in Review

2013 felt very disjointed for me in terms of collecting. Looking back, I still got some very neat items, but the pacing was completely atrocious for most of the year.

  I love Lego. I can’t say why, but there is an innocence and cuteness to it that is just works for licensed properties really well. Now, you may or may not be familiar with their Cusoo projects. The idea is fans can make their own projects and submit them. They go through a series […]

2012 Year in Review – Engineernerd

2012 in collecting, to me, at least, it reminded me of what is called a rebuilding year in sports terminology. There was some good, some bad, and some just meh. Actually, lot of meh. Mattel still doesn’t seem to understand that we would buy decent DC toys if they would put them out there at […]
