IDW Announces “Turtles in Time” Comic Mini-Series
I am way behind on the IDW TMNT series thanks to my iPad mini’s screen cracking (anyone know a good way to get that fixed?), but this Turtles in Time miniseries sounds amazing and I would actually buy physical copies to read it. Inspired by the SNES game? Sign me up.

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Trailer
I still don’t know what to think about the X-Men cinematic universe. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 14 years since the original came out. That movie basically got the ball rolling on the entire modern Superhero film genre. I never would have thought that 14 years later, some of the cast would still be playing those characters.

Reddit User tysmurph Paints Stills from Disney Movies
I saw these get posted over the last few days and I really hope it gets turned into a series. First up was a still from The Sword and the Stone, and then the other day one from 101 Dalmatians was posted.

Minecraft developer Mojang’s profits more than doubled in 2013
Minecraft is one of the most interesting gaming phenomenons of the last decade. I felt late to the party when I started playing it a few years ago and it was an obscure PC/Mac game. Now my nieces and nephews play it on their iPod Touches and iPads and it’s making Notch Scrooge McDuck money. And just think, in a couple years WB will release a Minecraft movie and it will explode even more.

Missing Links: Falcon, Vanilla Ice, Godzilla, Scrooge McDuck

My favorite thing about doing these Missing Links posts is how random the topics are. I never thought I’d write about Godzilla, Vanilla Ice, and Scrooge McDuck in the same post.

Falcon Finally Gets a Character Poster for Captain America: The Winter Solider
The sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger looks great, but I wish they would show Falcon more in the marketing. His lack of posters and significant screen time in trailers is making me worry that he will barely be in the movie. At least he’s finally gotten a character poster. Fun experiment: Imagine it’s the late 90s and you saw this picture of Falcon. You’d be like…is this from a direct-to-video superhero movie? But now, in context with all the superhero movies we’ve seen, it doesn’t seem that strange. Here’s hoping he gets red and white instead of tactical gear in his next outing on the screen. Side note: Check out the first (and only so far) Marvel Phase 2 Character Guide I wrote for Falcon last year. I need to start this series back up.

Ninja Turtles + Vanilla Ice + Mac & Cheese = Mandatory Post on this Blog
At first I thought this was a new reality show about Vanilla Ice’s new career as a stock boy at a grocery store, but instead it’s an awesome commercial for Mac and Cheese.

Epic Godzilla ‘Empire Magazine’ Cover
I’m so excited about this movie, and I even liked the 1998 version. Shh, don’t tell anyone. Also, someone on Reddit (why yes, I do read the /r/Godzilla subreddit constantly) made a version with no text that can now be found as my phone wallpaper.

Missing Links: Cancelled TMNT Toys, Retro Spaceship Gaming Room

There were a lot of cool links the past few days, but these stood out as the coolest, at least in my opinion.

Unreleased Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Toys
Cody over at Crooked Ninja wrote up an awesome article highlighting some cancelled TMNT toys from back in the day. I’d never seen most of these, and some of them are really awesome! It’s an interested part of TMNT toy history and you should definitely check it out.

Awesome Retro Spaceship Gaming Room
I found this on Reddit and it’s amazing. Someone with a very fancy Victorian home in the UK converted their “otherwise useless” attic into a gaming room that looks like it jumped right off the screen of an 80s Sci-Fi movie. The whole house will only set you back around 4 million euros.

Muppets Most Wanted Soundtrack Listing Revealed
My favorite thing revealed by these track listings is that Jemaine Clement is in the movie.

Star Wars toys photos look more realistic than the real Star Wars
These photos are awesome. Every time we get snow in Indiana, I always wish I had a bunch of Empire Strikes Back toys so I could go outside and take some Hoth-inspired photos.

Whether or not you liked the first Amazing Spider-Man, you have to admit that the costume in the sequel is amazing. I can't wait to see it in action.
