TV Korner: Mad Men 5.5 – “Far Away Places”

The new season of Mad Men continues to charge forward, packing some dense and heavy character studies into what has been a flat-out brilliantly written and beautifully realized season. From a dabble into horror two weeks back to last week’s heartbreaking spotlight on Pete and Lane, I keep expecting the bottom to fall out on just how good this show is, but I’m starting to this that shoe is nowhere near falling– in fact this week’s “Far Away Places” may have been the most compelling and entertaining episode of the season.

What Should Be in NECA’s Prometheus Toy Line?

For me, one of the most exciting reveals at Toy Fair was NECA’s announcement that they would be releasing a toy line for Prometheus. Ridley Scott’s upcoming movie looks incredibly ambitious and insanely cool, and (I hope) may end up being the best film of the Summer. While many details about the movie are still shrouded in mystery, from what we’ve seen so far it looks like there will be no shortage of visually dynamic stuff just begging to be captured in plastic. I though it would be fun to go place some guesses on what the upcoming Prometheus toy line could look like…

DC Bishoujo Review: Supergirl Flirts and Flies Into Three Dimensions

One of the recent additions to Kotobukiya’s DC Bishoujo Collection was Supergirl, who strikes a fun and flirty pose and makes an excellent addition to the “Pretty Girl” series. Master artist Shunya Yamashita does justice to the last daughter of Krypton, and the resulting statue is a must-have for any fans of the DC comics heroine or Bishoujo artwork.

The GI Joe “Dollar Wave” Plot Thickens

image source: hisstank.com, via user: NightFoxLast week, pictures surfaced for a mysterious new line of GI Joe figures including some 25th/ modern takes on the ’91 era commando Snake Eyes, Ninja Force Storm Shadow, modern Shipwreck and more. Since then, General Joe’s has added some “insider intel” to the mix, claiming these Joes will be a second-tier retail assortment, designed as repaints to reduce cost and get them carried at second tier outlets such as Family Dollar or Dollar General.

Avengers: Loki’s Army Revealed in Plastic (Also By Joss Whedon)

We’ve know for a while now that Loki’s alien army would be getting the toy treatment in Hasbro’s The Avengers movie series. Buzz around Toy Fair back in February seemed to suggest we’d see at least two soldier figures– a single-pack and a deluxe version– to troop build the forces of the sinister God of Lies in his campaign against Earth’s mightiest heroes. Now those rumors have been confirmed… along with the long-lived question of what kind of aliens these guys actually are.

Much like the show’s second season as a whole, the results are kind of a mixed bag.
