Star Wars Black Series Chirrut Imwe Action Figure Review

Chirrut Imwe 6" Star Wars Black Series Action Figure
I am one with the Force. And the Force is with me. 
The Chirrut Imwe 6" Action Figure from the Star Wars Black Series toyline is one of the best articulated and detailed figures to come from the toyline.

Chirrut Imwe is one of the most iconic characters to come out of Rogue One for several reasons:

  • He's the first major Star Wars character of Oriental (We're Oriental and frankly Oriental is not a racial slur - Go Iron Fist!) origin. 
  • He's sparked debate as to the efficacy of Stormtrooper armor. 
  • While there are races and martial arts in the Star Wars Universe that mimic or surpass Force abilities, what exactly is Chirrut Imwe?

Justice League "Come Together" trailer.

The new Justice League Trailer is out and it is awesome:

  • Really digging Aquaman's attitude. Make no mistake, this is not the guy the Justice League leaves behind because they aren't going to fight in water.
  • The team seems to be coalescing well in combat
  • Gal Gadot is as beautiful as ever.
  • Lots of cameos - Mera, Barry's dad, Commissioner Gordon, Lois etc...
  • Cyborg's CGI looks iffy.
  • The Flash is a bit effeminate. 
  • Aerosmith's Come Together was a nice touch.
Let's just hope that this trailer doesn't lead to another Suicide Squad

Check out this really cool poster as well:

Mafex BVS Wonder Woman Action Figure

Mafex BVS Wonder Woman Action Figure
The only member of the DC Trinity who actually
stood toe-to-toe with the Cave Troll
Welcome to a review of the Mafex BVS Wonder Woman Action Figure from Medicom.

Would you believe that this particular figure was purchased in 2015 prior to the release of Batman vs Superman, and just arrived a week ago?

Never again.

Anyway, this is Mafex's recreation of Wonder Woman as portrayed by the beautiful Gal Gadot in the mess that is Batman vs Superman.

Personally we felt that Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman was one of THE best things to come from BvS, and we're really looking forward to her solo movie this year - despite the recent criticisms which have shifted from the sizeof her breasts to her apparent lack of underarm hair.

Iron Factory Lady Commander Alleria - Elita One - Review

Iron Factory Lady Commander Alleria - Elita One  - Review
Optimus Prime's main squeeze
Welcome to a review of the Iron Factory EX-16-A Lady Commander Alleria AKA Elita One.

Lady Commander Alleria here came free with the early-release editions of the Iron Factory IF EX-14 Ultimate Commander God Ginrai / Optimus Prime which we reviewed a few weeks back.

And we have to say she's one of the nicest bonuses we've ever gotten our hands on.

To the uninitiated, in the cartoons, Elita One and the female counterpart of Optimus Prime. The two were together back when Optimus Prime was just Orion Pax and she was known simply as Ariel.

When the Decepticons began their war of conquest, both Orion and Ariel were destroyed and rebuilt by Alpha Trion. For 5 million years, the two led the Autobots and battled the Decepticons side-by-side. When the Ark left Cybertron for Earth, Elita One was presumed killed. She was not. For 4 million more years she would lead the Autobots against the Decepticons on Cybertron while Optimus Prime slept. 

That means she's led the Autobots longer than Prime has.

Jedi Knight Selig Kennjenn Quick Review

Jedi Knight Selig Kennjenn Quick Review
Jedi Knight Selig Kennjenn
Welcome to a quick review of Selig Kennjenn from the Star Wars Toys R'Us exclusive Battle of Geonosis, Jedi Knight Set #2.

This is the first time we've had to photoshop this many lightsabers.

Anyway, Jedi Knight Selig Kennjen is part of a 4-pack that includes: Jedi Knights Que-Mars Redath-Gom and
Khaat Qiyn, and; Clone Captain Deviss.

Of the three Jedi Knights in the pack, only Kennjen would survive the 1st Battle of Geonosis (Jedi Knight Khaat Qiyn's death is not yet set in stone). However, of the three, Jedi Knight Selig Kennjen is the only one who did not appear in Star Wars Episode II's Battle of Geonosis.

In fact he only appears in unused promotional artwork.
