Disclosure: Tygra, stealth variant is in my possession and I already took the pics for the It Came from the Toy Chest review. It'll be released later on throughout the year. I just need to sit down and finish writing the darn thing. But it got me thinking: Super7 NEEDS to fix Tygra. By that I mean give us a Tygra WITH the Missing elbow pad. Since B-Flynn said no mailing a new elbow pad for Tygra, a 2.0 version is what the Doctor ordered.

Allegedly, it's for Ultimates. No, it won't be true to scale, since we have to remember that a true to scale Cat's Lair needs to be able to fit the Thundertank inside the Paw Hangar... and the Super7 Thundertank is ridiculously huge. That makes the lair Stupid huge, over 10ft. tall or 3m for metric folks.

Action Figure Woes: NECA's 2023 comic con sale came and ended and I didn't even got a notification about it.
I missed out on Keno and his scooter...
Sure, it was $100, which I feel is a tad overpriced, but still. I never had a chance to preorder. Also the TMNT3 4pack was available, but fuck movie 3.
I'm not so mad about missing out on Keno, who hopefully should get a second release without his bike... I'm mad about not getting any notification despite having joined the mailing list from NECA a while back (around Tokka and Rahzar preorder time). How am I supposed to be able to buy these if I don't get a heads up! No, the spam folder had nothing from NECA. So, I was completely in the dark and not even the facebook pages that I normally lurk had anything about the presale... all they had were posts about gargoyles, the target exclusive toon April 2.0, which I won't be able to get at retail price... until today that some folks were comaining like I am about not getting notified about the event and missed out on Keno and the Movie 3 4 pack.
How can I buy product if I'm not notified about it going on sale despite being in the mailing list!? Welp! Looks like the amount of NECA stuffthat I'll be getting in the future has been greatly reduced, because I don't want to deal with scalpers.

There have been some rumors about Super7 havong a TMNT item for SDCC. I don't know how true these rumors are, BUT the most locigal answer is some ReAction figure multipack. But let's pretend that the SDCC item is an Ultimates figure. What COULD they do?
Honestly, I don't expect a new character. A redeco of an existing character is the most logical answer.

They have made Count Chocula, Frankenberry, and Boo Berry. They also have Chester Cheetah... notice a trend here?
Cereal and snack mascots getting made... Sure everyone is wishing for Tony the Tiger, the Trix rabbit, Lucky... Snao, Crackle, and Pop... while not a cereal Ernie the Keebler Elf. Sugar Bear and the other cereal folks... Me? I'm thinking:
Pepsiman... it's Japanese, bizarre, and promotes Pepsi...
Then there's the cool spots of the uncola...But there is a mascot... one that I'd love to have as a 1:12 scaled action figure... or at least as an accessory to Colonel Sanders since both are owned by Yum foods...
My condolences to the families of the passengers of the Oceangate Titan Submersible, who died. Fuck the CEO of Oceangate and his greed which cost him his life and that of the passengers. He KNEW there were safety issues that needed to be solved long before the submersible had its ill-fated journey to meet the Ship from the James Cameron film that also had safety issues that needed to be solved before its ill-fated journey.
But that's not all, the stepson of one of the passengers did what any "self-respecting" stepson can do when his stepfather goes MIA: he went to a Blink-182 concert. The idiot puts it on social media and this forced shitty human being, Cardigan Backyardigan to call him out for being a shitty human being.
When a self admitted criminal who drugged and robbed men while they were impaired by the drugs calls you out for being a shitty human being, you most definitely are a shitty human being. I'm not against him going to the concert, but to use his stepfather's disappearance and promote himself in social media for going to the concert while his stepdad was missing, that's a bit of a dick move.
Maybe his stepdad was a dick... you kinda have to be one to pay a quarter of a million to get in a carbon fiber sardine can piloted by a bootleg Playstation controller. Still, i wouldn't promote myself by being an even bigger dick for going to see Blink-182 while my stepdad is missing.

According to the movie director whose movie Fei Long was supposed to be filming, but the actor skipped it to fight Ryu in an illegal street fight... or so it was before it got censored to shit... now He's a troublemaker!
|Thanks to Batman 66 for giving me an idea how to achieve this pic.|
This game looks like it's tripping balls a lot than the average Mario game. It's like Mario on LSD.
I mean, it looks like your average two-dimensional Mario game. It's the art style that looks a bit different, but it has its charm. Now when you get into the world and it's power-ups that's where everything goes in an LSD-INFUSED trip which is strange even for Mario. PIPES ACT LIKE WORMS. YOU AND THE ENEMIES STRETCH AND DEFORM IN WEIRD WAYS. YOU EVEN TURN INTO A FREAKING ELEPHANT!!
Then there'sPrincess Daisy is finally playable in a normal Mario game! It only took 34 years.

Super7 left this ominous picture on Facebook a little while ago:
And yes, I would most likely arm him with a Hammer.

I can't believe I'm going to say this but:
It actually LOOKS GOOD! It has more love towards the source material than other Anime Adaptations by Netflix...

Yes, I'm talking about THAT Jesus: Born on a Manger, turned water to wine and died for your sins Jesus. Apparently, he was a proto-weeb. According to the town of Shingo, where Jesus is allegedly buried, the Bible is telling half-truths... because Jesus didn't die on the cross, but his little brother replaced him. Instead Jesus ran away to Japan fell in love and lived until he was 106 years old.
Jesus allegedly went to Japan during his "lost years" the gap in Jesus storyline as a teen and before his return to the storyline as an adult. So, at 21, (legal adult age to be able to buy eroge) Jesus comes to Japan to study Theology. (Kinda weird going to another country to study his dad.) He learns Japanese and embraces the culture... (total weeb, amirite?) Returns to Judea after 12 years of being a weeb. Gets in trouble with the Authorities and he uses the kawarimi techniques to swap himself with his little brother that conveniently has a Japanese sounding name (Isukiri) unlike his other brothers: James, Joses, Judas (not that one), and Simon. He also has sisters, but they're unnamed.
The whole Jesus switch reminds me of Xenosaga...
IIRC chaos is Yeshua, which means, you guessed it, Jesus. The Jesus looking man was the mascot, while chaos was "the real Jesus". Looks like I'm straying From the Path again, let's get back on track. After doing the substitution technique with his Japanese sounding kid brother, Jesus went to Japan, assumed a new name, became a garlic farmer, and got married. He then lived until the age of 106 were he died.

Cole Young, the protagonist from the shitty MK Movie Reboot WILL NOT BE IN MK 1. That is some great news: what's not great news are the rumored guest kombatants.
Homelander, Omniman, and Peacemaker are the top 3 rumored characters. Personally, Peacemaker feels out of place here. He's better off on Injustce 3. While Omniman and Homelander can fit the MK mold, having Superman knock-offs in Mortal Kombat is kinda lame.
Wargods: now there's a lot of potential in here. I know the original game wasn't that great and the graphics were a little bad, but it's technically a Midway game, which means Netherrealm might own the property.
Conan: yes I'm talking about that Conan. The Barbarian not the talk show host, just making sure we're on the same page. Think about it. Strong, savage, violent, perfect for MK. There's lots of potential in Conan... especially if they go for the Public domain version of Conan... solely based on the stuff published by Robert E. Howard when he was alive... or work with whoever holds the rights now. (They've changed hands recently) in order to get THIS Conan.
Lobo: I lnow I have a beef with DC stuff in MK, but Lobo males more sense than Joker. The only reason Joker is in is because they already have Joker's VA playing Raiden and they don't need to hire anyone else... also, Brad Garrett should play Lobo.
But let's be honest here: the Guest Kombatant thing is nothing more than a half-assed, desperate gimmick...
Mirage Turtles and Shredder: LuiKangdammit! Please notice that I said MIRAGE and not the pop culture idea of the Turtles where Leonardo Leads, Donatello does Machines, Raphael is cool but rude, Michelangelo is a party dude... I mean the mean and gritty Morage Universe, where the Turtles are edgier than a Zack Snyder movie. I don't want the Injustice Turtles in MK1... I want something along the lines of MIRAGE universe or DARKER...
But all we need is a Street Fighter crossover (which unfortunately won't happen, because Capcom looks down on MK)

Since so far we have Issue 1, this may be a bit premature. But I'm trying to strike while the iron is hot! Weekend suspect that we are going to see mutated versions of Street Fighter characters on later issues, just like we did with some of Gotham's criminals in the Batman and TMNT crossover movie adaptation... because you KNOW we NEED the SFII Roster turned into Animals and other things EVEN IF THE COMIC DOESN'T. But let me make a list of characters and then discuss it a bit more.

Dammit. Wolverine's co-creator, one of Punisher's co-creator, and MARY JANE WATSON'S co-creator passed away in his sleep. My condolences to his friends and family, especially his son John Romita Jr. who, like his father has also been an artist in Spider-Man comics. Romita Sr.'s work in Spider-Man came after Stan Lee and Steve Ditko had a falling out and Romita was the artist behind some of Spidey's crucial moments...
May you rest in peace JRsr...

Rubén Moya, Mexican voice actor, has passed away. As stated in the title, he was MY He-Man... as in my earliest interactions with the show were with the Latin American dub, long before I could watch the show in English and appreciate John Erwin's work.He was also the voice of Mr. Feeny, of all people, in the Latin American dub of Boy Meets World.
It seems to be recycling the plot of GI Joe vs Street Fighter. Here Bison teams up with Stockman in order to produce stronger warriors. (I'm betting that the Ooze will be involved.) Also, Bison has a massive Hard-On for Raphael.
It's the only vehicle that makes sense for sticking in a "half wave" like Mandora's Electro Charger and the Rumored Silverhawks Wave 5 Copper Kidd space Racer. They can't make the cheapskate because none of the existing basic Turtle figures have foot holes to use on any vehicle peg.
