LEGO Super Heroes Marvel Comics Review: 6869 Quinjet Aerial Battle
An insanely thorough review of an Avengers LEGO set I can't wait to pick up on From Bricks To Bothans. The Quinjet looks like a beast, but what's up with Black Widow's minifig?

“Looney Tunes: Mouse Chronicles” | Cartoon Brew
More classic animation on Blu-ray. That makes me happy. Jerry Beck also teases "Consider this a hint that some of the most sought after animation the company owns is headed to DVD and blu-ray within the next year".

Micro Transformer | Flickr – Photo Sharing!
Micro scale LEGO creations are starting to grow on me. They seem like the purest form of LEGO building, and this tiny Transformer is a perfect example. Crazy.

Every Batman Poster. Ever. – Poster Collective
A nice roundup of every Batman poster ever, as according to Poster Collective. Batman Forever actually had some cool posters.

This is a good week for Batman fans. Like most of you I’ve been playing through Batman Arkham City and loving every minute of it, but this week saw the release of the animated adaption of Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One as well.

Has it really been over a year since I reviewed a DC Animated Universe movie? The last DC U animated Blu-ray I reviewed was Batman: Under the Red Hood, and it was surprisingly good. Since then, I’ve seen a few more, but didn’t feel they were worth posting on the site. Green Lantern: Emerald Knights was a decent collection of stories, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse was just kind of interesting, and All-Star Superman was weird because I didn’t know the source material.

Even though I haven’t read Batman: Year One by Frank Miller, I thoroughly enjoyed the animated adaptation and feel like it is an impressive addition to Batman’s already awesome animated film history.

Posted 9 years ago by Toys

I’m not one to buy expensive collector toys, but it’s a habit I wouldn’t mind starting with Hot Toys’ upcoming 1989 Batman figures. The detail is amazing, and of course the figures come with an insane collection of extra heads, hands, weapons, and accessories. These figures run about $250 a pop, and you can preorder Batman and The Joker at Sideshow Collectibles.
