Capcom teased SF6 with a nifty teaser of SFV newcomer Luke vs our favorite Karate Hobo...
We knew about the Toon Usagi, the Rock soldier, and Crooked Ninja Turtle Gang Member... well, they are making Zach the 5th Turtle in a Two Pack with Smash, who is the leader of the CNTG.
Well, they're doing More Mirage stuff. They teased a Mirage Casey, Fugitoid is coming, also Renet... They are doing an Utrom Android Body with an Utrom.

Normally, there aren't that many options for Backdrops, Dioramas, and accessories on scales bigger than 1:18... back in the day, when Jakks Pacific had the WWF/WWE License, they made playsets featuring backstage areas from hardcore matches. These could be used with characters like Spider-Man, Punisher, Daredevil, Batman, Green Arrow, TMNT. Now with the 6in GI Joe line Power Rangers lightning collection, or the 7 inch Super7 versions, these could get some use. But the priblem is that you had to have planned ahead for 20-something years... because nowadays, there's very little in the accessories/prop department...
Sure we can get WWE vehicles or a Ridiculously expensive Party Wagon, but that's it. Since we're getting vehicles, we kinda need some accessories to display them. Sure we can DIY a street with posterboard, some tape, and foamboard for the sidewalk, but Mailboxes, Parking Meters, Hydrants, Manhole covers, Payphones, etc. Those are MUCH HARDER TO DIY.

Daniel Rand WAS Iron Fist. Now, Lin Lie, the Sword Master, is Iron Fist... The Asian guy who has shards of a Mystic Sword embeded into his flesh that now give him Super Martial Arts Powers has gained the Super Martial Arts Powers of Iron Fist. Can you see the Racism here?

Mattel can be a huge nest of dumbasses at times. Not going to comment much on their crazy beliefs that "people will keep buying their product at the same rate as 2021 despite upcoming price hikes"... no. What I'm talking about is far more insidious.
Cody Rhodes, one of the pillars of All Elite Wrestling has quit AEW. Tony Khan, the Vincent Kennedy McMahon of AEW gave Cody and his wife his best wishes... the rumors are that

He passed away recently. According to his family, he passed away peacefully in his sleep, which, in my opinion is the best way to pass.
He was 75 and the man behind Animal House, and obviously, Ghostbusters, Kindergarten Cop, Twins, EVOLUTION, My Super ex-Girlfriend, andJunior...
Holy crap! Mr. Reitman did a ton of memorable movies and I shamefully, only knew him as the Ghostbusters guy.
My condolences to his family and friends... Mandatory, Haley Joel Osment watched his work reference and High Summonner Yuna is dancing to Ghostbusters reference. I think I should get off my ass and finish the Mondo Gecko review.
This is an abomination that shouldn't have the name Gatchaman in it.

Final Fantasy IX is rumored to have a remake... and another Final Fantasy is runored to get a remaster.
I don't want a remake of FFIX after the Disappointment that is Final Fantasy VII Remake. Mostly, because I don't want to see this game chopped up into multiple parts and have the story butchered to death because of Kingdom Hearts edginess.
Before you ask it stands for Too Many God-Damned Variants In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. A fact that can't be denied. The reason I'm bringing this up is Wave 7 of Super7's TMNTU and the fact that we won't reach a "complete Vintage Line" in the same vein we did with MOTUC back with Mattel...

The re-releases of the 4 Turtles are on the Ocean. Wave 5 is on first samples received... This worries me since at the time BOTH Wave 5 and the Rereleases were made available and I ordered Ray Fillet with the rereleases. They were supposed to come out at the same time.

The trailer has dropped and I don't know if Michael Chrichton is spinning in his grave or not.
I had chills watching this. Some were good, pthers were bad. All I know is that this is the "end" for the bastardization of Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park. Yes, I enjoyed Jurassic Park, and the First Jurassic World. I was OK with the Lost World and Fallen Kingdom until the third act of both movies. Then they both went to shit. Let's not talk about JP3 unless we're making fun of
Well, looks like Douglas Walker did it for us.
Honestly, I wish that we could get a Jurassic Park series 100% faithful to the book... and for Mattel to complete the last four remaining characters from the first JP movie in their 6 inch line. (Gennaro, Wu, and the kids) it's a shame Mom isn't here to see this.

NECA got some Karate Kid, Icon heroes got some Karate Kid, Playmates got some Karate Kid via Cobra Kai, Diamond Select has some Karate Kid via Cobra Kai. Pretty much everyone and their mother is doing Karate Kid...
It's a 3 Figure Wave and Done! A great "small line" for Super7 to do. This also allows for a better TMNT Karate Kid crossover than what Playmates did.
NECA made a MEGO Miyagi. No one else is doing a Miyagi... I honestly want a Miyagi more than anything and if he's made for Ultimates, then I can have Splinter and Miyagi reminiscing of Japan and Okinawa respectively. This is the part where I mention that the LatAm dub of Karate Kid had shared VAs with TMNT... Miyagi is Michelangelo and LaRusso is Leonardo.
Also, going with Animated series seems to play to the Fourhorsemen's strengths. Since their cartoon based sculpts tend to fare better than Real Life Sculpts. Not to mention that this doesn't step on everyone else's toes that are doing Karate Kid and Cobra Kai... notice how everyone doing Cobra Kai only focus on Johnny, LaRusso, and Kreese. Sure Playmates made a Miguel, but no Sam, Robbie, Tory, Demetri, Eli/Hawk...
Super7 has done: He-Man, TMNT, Thundercats, GI Joe, and Silverhawks in a compatible scale... it would be cool if we could add Chuck Norris, Karate Kid, Knight Rider, The A-Team, and MacGyver to the mix...
There is one thing that could top this if they made Ultimates of...... it would be outrageous truly truly outrageous!!
So, Archie's Creek has slowly been turning into Scooby-Doo and now it's transitioning into a Supernatural wannabe. It's not necessarily good, but it's not necessarily bad.
I've already said that this is an awful adaptation of Archie. It has been a weird trip. Going from a Dawson's Creek copy with an Archie skin to, I don't even know what the Hell is this show now. With each season they kept pushing the envelope with more outlandish crap. Now we're at alternate realities, the Devil, crossovers with Sabrina. To be fair, the crossovers with Sabrina have been done on the comics and cartoons.
Half the stuff that Riverdale has done during their seasons would be "shark jumping" moments on other shows, but for some reason THEY WORK on Riverdale. They SHOULDN'T WORK they just do. Hell, I think the only reason it works is because of it being a bizarre bastardization of Archie... especially since Archie is already a bizarre source Material.
|This was actually a thing.|
Archie has also met Predator, Batman, the TMNT, hell, he even survived a Sharknado... shit, all these crossovers make Riverdale seem tame in comparison, despite its "I'm trying to be edgier than Zack Snyder" nature.

Normally, I don't comment on local news, but one of my favorite College Professors and trusted confidant, Dean Zayas passed away a few days ago. He was at a time a famous director in both theater and soap operas. Most importantly for years he took charge of the University of Puerto Rico Theater troupe, el Teatro Rodante de la UPR, where one of its founders is a distant relative of mine. Something I discovered very close to my graduation. I won't go into detail of his whole career, since the Humanities Dept. from the UPR rook care of that. I'd rather speak on how he impacted ME.
Dean knowing my family, my mom in particular, wasn't something I knew about. Then again, my mom also studied Theater Arts and Dean was one of her professors, so I should've expected that they knew each other.
