It's Shatner vs. Shakespeare in Stop-Motion Lego "Action Bill"

Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at 1:45 pm

actionbill.jpg

Painstakingly animated at 15 frames per second, this short from AMAA productions sees William Shatner take a time-traveling mech to destroy the bard and thereby ending the kind of theater that brings about good acting.

But there's another starship captain who feels a bit differently about such things, and vows to stop him...

(don't worry - the impersonations are decent)

DC Collectibles Gives Early Look at Batman Animated Style Freeze and Two-Face Figures

Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at 12:00 pm

DCCMrFreeze.jpg

When DC Collectibles revealed the Batman from their new Dini-Timm animated action figure line, I know some of you were suspicious that it wouldn't be very articulated. The computer model for the next figure, above, should put those worries to rest. Mr. Freeze comes with spider legs, so even though they haven't said for sure that his head is removable, it seems likely. He'll be available in November, just in time for appropriately chilly weather - and it appears that his condition has left him cold to your wallet's plea for mercy.

If you're bi-curious about Harvey Dent's toy appearance, go check out Two-Face.

Batman: Death of the Family Vol. 3 TPB Comes w/Flayed Joker Skin Mask

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at 1:00 pm

flayedjokermask.jpg

You know something, DC? Psychotic clowns are scary enough. Psychotic clowns with the skin of their faces cut off and then sewn on again are enough to make both Jack Nicholson and the late Heath Ledger go, "Damn, that's a bit unsubtle." But that's the new 52 for ya - heroes get piping on their outfits, villains get extreeeeeme. If you're gonna show Catwoman boning Batman, Joker has to go further.

And now you can too, with a latex mask/wig combo that comes with the third collection of issues from that particular story arc. Thus ensuring I will probably never read the TPB - except at somebody else's house - because there's no way my wife's allowing that mask inside our front door.

maniaweekend.jpg

Check in Sunday to see if I decide to liveblog it. It's like six hours long if you count the preshow, so I don't know if I'm up to the whole thing. But if I am it'll be here.

A few last-minute items before the big weekend:

-NECA's General Ursus wants YOU...to buy him when he comes out. Also, better photos of their Godzilla.

-Bruce Timm is doing a new Batman short. Now that's the goddamn Batman.

-The Michael Bay Ninja Turtles look a lot better in Lego.

-Twin Peaks Twitter fanfic.

-Amazon's game box, to compete with...what exactly?

-Riding in Cars With Zombies, the game.

-Axel Braun's new Captain America porno patriotically comes out on tax day.

-Kids today. You're getting a video game to help brush your teeth properly? In my day we just had stupid-ass tablets that dyed your teeth red until you got it all off.

-Possibly an April Fool, but here's a robot kangaroo:

If anyone in the LA area wants to see WrestleMania on Sunday, hit me up. Holla.

TR Interview: Seth Green and Matthew Senreich on Robot Chicken and Star Wars Detours

Friday, April 4, 2014 at 3:00 pm

seth_green_matthew_senreich.jpg

In the last of our series of Robot Chicken interviews, we go straight to the creators, Seth Green and Matthew Senreich. Geoff Johns was scheduled to be part of the interview as well, but who knows - perhaps he read some of the nastier things I've said about Sir Lazer-Lot, and felt I should not meet the one Responsible This. But who am I kidding: most likely he had take a bathroom break or something.

Seriously, Robot Chicken gang - Sir Lazer-Lot must be fed to Mo-Larr on your show. Someday.

TR Interview: The Robot Chicken Writers

Thursday, April 3, 2014 at 1:00 pm

aquamanchess.jpg

DC Comics' new headquarters in Burbank is filled with things to look at, from the movie costumes in the lobby to the giant superhero drawings on every sliding office door. In-house toys adorn most desks, and the vault room that contains as many early issues as the company has been able to gather has glass walls, so you can look, even if you'd never remotely have the security clearance to touch.

But I'm not here merely to geek out. Robot Chicken has a new DC Comics Special airing Sunday, and I'm here to meet the writers, whom I talked to in two groups of three.

Sideshow's $100 Statue of Thor as a Frog Makes Me Hoppy

Thursday, April 3, 2014 at 11:30 am

thorfrog.jpg

I wonder if this is what happens when the right lonely female amphibian kisses Chris Hemsworth. The coolest thing about being this frog is that he DOES have wings (albeit on his helmet), and thus possibly does not bump his ass when he lands

Based on a comedic Walt Simonson story in which Thor is cursed to be a frog for a while, then ultimately succeeded in the role by an amphibian named Throg, this statue ought to please those who don't want to choose between frogs and princes, but would rather have a mashup. What you do with that mashup is your business. Shutup - I said YOUR BUSINESS. I am not listening to you. Lalalalalala.
