San Diego Comic Con 2014: The Collectables to Collect

Luke Miksa's: The Negative Space Bar

While San Diego Comic Con has now become a mixed-medium Mecca of marketing (I will patent that phrase), at the core it is still a place to salivate over all things super-nerdy; in this case I am going to talk about some choice upcoming action-figures and collectables from some of the world’s best toy companies.

Thanks to Toy News International and MWC Toys for this year’s great coverage and photos.

HOT TOYS/SIDESHOW COLLECTABLES

Starting at the most amazing, eye-catching piece on display this year, the Hot Toys booth showed off this amazingly accurate and life-like Marty McFly 1/6th scale figure and scale DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future.

*Drool* **Droooooooollll**

*Drool* **Droooooooollll**

As with many Hot Toys releases, the likeness of Michael J. Fox is uncanny, and the attention to detail is unbelievable. He will come with a fabric outfit (including life-preserver!) as well as a host of accessories including his skateboard, walkman, and ‘Save the Clocktower’ flyer. The DeLorean may very well be the nicest release of the iconic vehicle yet, and includes working headlights and a Flux Capacitor that fluxes!

Recap: WWE Raw – 1st July 2013

rawreviewbanner

Cold open with Vickie Guerrero announcing that tonight’s WWE Raw will be celebrating the history of the WWE Championship and the World Heavyweight Championships, with title holders John Cena and Alberto Del Rio facing off tonight. This is met with general apathy from this Iowa crowd. It’s gonna be a long night.

In-Ring Segment

Daniel Bryan out first sporting a terrific new shirt touting ‘Respect the Beard’, and he receives a pretty nice reaction. Who would have thought that a strong in-ring push would get a competitor over? Bryan compares himself to wrestling legends such as Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin. Hogan’s name was met with jeers, which is pretty funny.

Sheamus then arrives to kill the mood. He brings up beating Bryan in 18 seconds at WrestleMania. Randy Orton also arrives sans music and says stuff. Then Kane arrives with pyro but no music, which is just bizarre. They are ultimately joined in-ring by both Christian and then CM Punk, and it seems all men shockingly covet the WWE Title. They posture and trade insults for a while until eventually Orton hits Kane with an RKO and this weak segment fizzles out.

Missing Persons Unit: Freddie Prinze Jr.

Luke Miksa's: The Negative Space Bar

As doubtful as it may be, it’s possible that you may have recently asked yourself where on earth Freddie Prinze Jr. has disappeared to. A burgeoning superstar of the late 90’s/early 2000’s with a string of successful films including I Know What You Did Last SummerScooby Doo and She’s All That (and Wing Commander: lol); the films roles dried up for old Freddie quicker than you can say Matthew Lillard.

Truth be told, The Fresh Prinze (I went there) has been getting steady guest roles on television, but if you were to ask who was employing Prinze Jr. at this very moment; I will respond with the WWE.

You read that correctly; Freddie Prinze Jr. is employed as a writer for World Wrestling Entertainment: oh, how the mighty have fallen. He actually makes occasional on-screen appearances, such as this:

Freddie Prinze Jr. lays down the law to Randy Orton.

Which led to this:

Seriously, what did you expect to happen?
