|The People's Chump needs to get a wig like this and pointy ears to properly play Black Adam.|

A Candy ass Jabroni who doesn't know his role is why Black Adam and Shazam will never cross paths on the DCEU.
That are not "Secret identities" of Batman and Superman...

As crazy as it sounds, SONY, a Japanese company, is hellbent on rebooting Karate Kid, a movie about an Italian American teen learning the Japanese Martial Art of Karate by using Chinese Actors...
The movie is called The Karate Kid. Karate is right there on its name!!

The ONE logical repaint that Super7 could've used as a special filler was given to BBTS... I honestly don't get Super7's logic. It's too confusing. Then there's the other issue:
I'm not a lawyer so I cannot answer that question. It would be pretty interesting to see the perspective from a lawyer on this issue. In any case, I preordered mine, because it's stealth Tygra... or "Invisible Tygra" as he's officially called. I have bitched and moaned about this variant way too much to not buy it when available. Now I'll wait as they make Spirit Jaga an Entertainment Earth exclusive... this is not a hint nor a prediction. This is me mocking the practice of exclusives.
Apparently, it'll be a BAF Wave with Solomon Grundy, Bane, Clayface, or Mr. Freeze being the most likely choices. Seeing that a Killer Croc figure from Arkham Asylum was released recently.

Sorry if I butchered the Japanese pronunciation, but my Japanese knowledge comes from Duolingo and watching Family Friendly anime... and I mean really FAMILY FRIENDLY...
This segment is a spin-off of the Life After the Neitlichverse, where I was supposed to interview MOTU characters to see where they were after Classics continuity ended... I will do some of those later, but Now I want to expand that idea and go beyond MOTUC and interview other people from different universes... No, I will NOT interview Cryborg... Today's guest, as I already mentioned is Hamato Mikerangero... also known as Orange Ninja Turtle, the party dude, so, Mikey, welcome to the show..."Dude, it's totally awesome being here! What you did to the green room was radical!"

It's really good that an obscure villain like The Spot is getting some love... what worries me is that this might mean the only Marvel Legends figure of The Spot might be movie based and not Comic Book accurate. Yes, I know it's old news that The Spot was going to be the villain of that movie, but the realization that we might not get a proper Spot figure hit me just now...
And I'm going to use the Spot as an excuse to make a Spider-Man character Wishlist that removes Agony and Riot, since they got made as an Amazon exclusive with a Venom figure that comes with a half-Eddie half-Venom face.

My facebook feed is full of Grease references now... I'm not even a fan of Grease. Now, people who never watched Grease once in their freaking lives are posting Grease references due to her passing. Apparently, it was cancer related. As always my condolences to friends and family.
I'm not a fan of her, Hell, the only thing I remember her is not even Grease... it's her incredibly cheesy video that has a bunch of muscular and sweaty men working out on a fighting videogame training stage... I'm talking about Physical... Spike! Remember it's Olivia Newton-John, don't hit me with some Dua Lipa bullshit here...
Let's get physical... physical... wait is this about sex? All this time I thought it was music to work out to... welp! Another little bit of my innocence lost...
In any case, may she rest in peace...

David Zaslav, the guy who killed scripted programming on TNT and TBS, the guy who killed family-friendly programming on HBO MAX, the guy who is killing DC projects left and right, is the same person throwing the 10-year plan and putting the Trinity on top.
The 10 year plan is the final nail on the Snyderverse coffin.
It's no secret that I hate Rise of the TMNT. So it doesn't make sense that I'd watch the movie, but I did. For one simple reason... they tried to fix the Casey Jones mistake... by having a Time traveling (male) Casey Jones (jr.) Attempt to save the world from a Krang invasion.
So CJ2 is stuck in the past with the Turtles and Leo's ego gets in the way. This causes Raph to get captured and Leo's got to prove himself as a leader... Despite being based on Rise of the TMNT, it wasn't a trainwreck... it wasn't good either since it felt rushed and contrived at times. But there was one thing that was bugging me a lot... CJ2's voice sounded familiar...

He or they look really nice! Now, If he just looked nice comma I wouldn't have much to talk about but Here I am making a post about it. This must mean that I might have a few nits to pick.
I'm not 100% sure, but he might be a New Eternia figure. The Belt with the crest from a previous concept for him, the arm or thigh armor are giving me "New Eternia" vibes... also the "flayed" Tuvar side is giving me incoming new backstory vibes. The headsculpts feel a bit lacking, especially on Tuvar. I am disappointed that his 200X weapon is a no show, especially when he has two concept maces that look like they were the inspiration for the 200X weapon
|Unused concept that became Two-Bad.|
Notice the crest on his armor and maces.
After seeing New Eternia Beastman, all other New Eternia figures kinda feel underwhelming... aside Stratos.
While this project was one I didn't care much about, (Michael Keaton cameo aside) seeing it allegedly canceled when it was almost completed royally sucks. It shows the lack of direction at WB regarding DC comics. Unlike some idiots out there (I'm referring to the Snydercult), this is not a good thing.
This wasn't like the Wonder Twins project that was in pre-production, this was a nearly completed movie that already spent 90 million dollars in the making. This puts Zaslav further behind of his cutting 3 Billion Dollars from WB plan to recover the Discovery investment. If Zaslav canned this project, he won't throw money at an incompetent director who can't stay on budget and deliver a movie whose runtime is 2 hours or less. If the "Snyderverse" was dead before, now it's even deader. WB TRIED to keep the DCEU, but the Snydercult keeps shooting itself in the foot. Now with Batgirl's cancelation, they're asking for Black Adam, Shazam 2, and Blue Beetle to be canceled. They're asking to kill whatever is keeping the DCEU in life support... I forgot the eternal hate-boner towards James Gunn and Peacemaker. Honestly, I don't get the Snydercult... well, I mean, I get them, but I can't see the logic in their plans. On the other hand, I don't get WB's plan either.
This lack of direction under WB, under the AT&T Merger WB, and now the Discovery Merger WB, has been what has kept DC movies way behind Marvel... right now they shouldn't bother with playing catch-up and instead foxus on doing a cinematic universe that RESPECTS its source material... (so no Snyder-like garbage)

The Thundertank and the Party Wagon have been the vehicles made by Super7 for Thundercats and TMNT respectively. Now they have more toylines like GI Joe, Silverhawks, and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, just to name a few.
I mentioned that a Maraj may or may not be viable due to scale. But they did make the Thundertank, so anything is possible. Mon*Star's Skyrunner is a more viable vehicle to be made, even if slightly less Iconic than the Maraj... or they could do the Mob's space cruiser vehicles... I don't think many people would buy Seymour's cab... if you know what I mean. Any of these would be no lower than $300... based on Super7's previous price gouging.

July 31st, 2022 is the birthday of the Jetson Patriarch... the internet pretty much insists that's his Birthday. The Jetsons aired in 1962 and it was meant to be a hundred years since then. Basic math comes into the equation of substracting George Jetson's age from 2062, and that leaves 40-year old George Jerson being born on 2022. Why July 31st? No idea, but that would mean I would be either dead or an 80-year old curmudgeon by the time George is asking Jane to stop this crazy thing...
But for more refreshing vegan news: we're on the year of Soylent Green... if you're a vegan in 2022, you might be eating people...If the movie is correct.
Also, next year will be the year when Terry McGinnis is born... 1 day before this Blog's anniversary. Better find a McFarlane Batman Beyond figure before that date.
We missed the BTTF Future and Blade Runner... we also happily avoided the TLOU Outbreak what other futures can we screw up?

Nichelle Nichols, has become the latest victim of Emil Osment's brother and his accursed Necrosight. According to her son, Nichols passed away due to natural causes. As always, my condolences to her friends and family.
Pretty much everyone remembers her as Uhura... I'm not sure, but I think she was in Spider-Man the Animated Series... playing Blade's Mom IIRC. But Nichols was far more important for pushing diversity back in the day, not just on TV but for the Space Program... I know that some of you are thinking that I'm a hypocrite. Since I complain about "diversity" in modern media but Celebrate Nichelle Nichols.
I can assure you that there is no hypocrisy there. Back then, diversity was about ADDING groups and not Replacing. But back to Ms. Nichols, who is the focus of this rant. It's really awesome how she used her Star Trek powers to help other people of color to boldly go where no people of color had gone before. I had to sneak that Trek Reference somewhere... May she rest in peace. Only Chekov, Sulu and Kirk remain... and I... am... dreaDING... theday... I... have... to... deLIVEr... some... bad... news...

There are plenty of ways to kill your sims...
But it's not death what I want to speak about... it's about love... a Special Kind of love...
Yes, we have Incest in The Sims 4. It's not intentionally made. Need to point this out befre we get parent's groups going REEEEEEE!! This is a bug on the wants/desires feature. IIRC, the feature worked with Sims that had a high level of compatibility and got along with each other. Normally this excludes family members. Seems that the recent update messed that up and now we have The Sims: Sweet Home Alabama edition. EA is working on a patch to fix this issue.
Personally, I don't have an issue with Simscest. Here come the torches and pitchforks... wait, hear me out. I'm talking about the consensual relationship between two virtual adults. Not Real Humans and no children (virtual or otherwise). The sims has ghosts, vampires, werewolves and other unrealistic things. The biggest reasons for people being against incest are mostly based on religious taboos and the possibility of malformed genetic aberrations... but that's on the real world, not The Sims. If your Sim Sister falls in love with you, you DON'T HAVE TO RECIPROCATE her feelings. This would require a Consent pop-up, which would be nice since some Sims are super easy and others, well, any more obtuse they'd be avenging Iwao Hazuki.
But this is a videogame, it's not real and since it's not real, I'm a bit more tolerant of incest than I'd be in the real world. There are far more complex issues in the real world that make actual incest less acceptable than on The Sims... things like power dynamics that can be abusive, age differences between the two people involved (where one could've been a minor groomed by the adult), should the couple be sterilized due to risk of genetic malformations (assuming they're a heterosexual couple or non-heterosexual couple with fully functional heterosexual genitalia)... I am ignoring the religious taboo aspect of it and focusing on the social and biological aspects, because the religious argument boils down to it's bad because religion says it's bad. Would I be OK with real life incest between two consenting adults in a relationship that both parties have equal power and have taken precautions to avoid reproduction (ie: vasectomy, removal of ovaries)? I don't think so. It's kinda like GTA... I'm OK with stealing cars, killing people indiscriminately, causing all sorts of mayhem IN THE GAME, but not in real life. But it seems that many have a hang up with incest that even fake incest between fake human analogs bothers them. This rant took a weird turn...
So, if you're into virtual incest with the Sims, hurry up before they patch the accidental incest...

They aren't repaints. They sculpted new parts purposely made to look like the bad 80s toys...
I already bitched about these back when Super7 put them prematurely on announcement. I still stand by everything I said back then. I dread the Kenner repaint waves of silverhawks...
At least B-Flynn isn't doing these variants:
Made for arcades by Namco, ported home by Sqauresoft. No one remembers the arcade version... Hell, many DON'T REMEMBER THE HOME CONSOLE VERSION...
This game... the free running 3D Fighter that had cameos from Final Fantasy VII because Square was beginning their whoring out of FFVII here and with Final Fantasy Tactics.

While I may think that Spector's creator is a massive douche... ohai Scott! Not sorry about calling you a douche. Spector, Sir-Loser-Lot, Draego-Man, Cy-Chop, Fearless Photog, and Castle Grayskullman are all Part of MOTU Lore now. And let's face it, some of those entries could use some "redesigning" to make them pop...

And not even the Lazarus Pits will bring him back. Someone please break High Summoner Yuna's legs before she starts dancing... David Warner, mostly known for The Omen, Tron, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secret of the Ooze, and Batman: The Animated Series has passed away due to Cancer-related issues. Fuck Cancer!
My condolences to his friends and family. I'm not going to pretend that I was a huge fan of Warner. I've seen and heard a lot of his work, but I mostly remember him from TMNT2SOTO and Batman TAS. Especially the katter as he sent chills down my spine as the Head of the Demon. He has been in a ton of stuff, Star wars, Star Trek, Wing Commander, Dr. Who, Tron, MIB the series, and others... Hell he was Jor-El believe it or not...
