(Godzilla site menu)

Comicbook.com had some exclusive comments from Keiji Ota, CGO (Chief Godzilla Officer) at Toho Co.

“We’re thrilled to unleash a world of content around our most beloved Godzilla. Fans have been longing for a universe that celebrates the all-mighty king of monsters and Godzilla.com delivers the most exciting news and stories about upcoming events, new merchandise and special releases as we commemorate the 65th anniversary of Godzilla.”

The site is going to be updated with news, contests, new products, trailers, art events and more!

There’s also a list of all the films with release dates and information and a Monsterpedia that will be updated with monsters as the site progresses.

My favorite part is the option to turn a “rumble” feature on or off when you visit the site.  Turn it on to try it out!

I can’t wait for Godzilla: King of the Monsters to hit theaters on May 31st! In the meantime check out the Godzilla site!

‘Stranger Things’ The Upside Down Legos Are Coming!

0

Are you a LEGO fan? How about Stranger Things?

If you’ve answered “yes” to either or both questions then I’ve got some incredible news for you!

New LEGO Stranger Things 75810 Set is Coming!

LEGO has posted some teasers on Twitter for a few days now.

They’re so fun! Just watch!

 

This new set will have approximately 2287 pieces and will have eight Minifigures. By the box they are figures of Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Will, Hopper, Joyce, and a Demogorgon (I think he might have 2 heads so you can switch from open mouth to closed too!)

I’m not sure if we will get more sets based on the show or just this one, but it would be cool to have sets of the cabin, Hawkins Middle School, Hawkins lab, the arcade, a Bionicle type Mind Flayer (my son’s suggestion) or even the new Starcourt Mall! A Steve in a sailor suit figure would be kind of fun.

Here’s a look at the box and the set thanks to geekculture.co

I love how it’s our world and The Upside Down!

Plus they have Hopper’s station wagon!

This is one of the coolest things ever. We haven’t really bought LEGOs in awhile, but this one might have to be purchased! It’s just so creative and cool!

Here are some detail shots (you can visit geekculture to see more!)

No details on the release date have been announced yet, but we will make sure to keep you posted if we hear anything!

Remember the 3rd season of Stranger Things will premier on Netflix on the 4th of July!

Are you excited? I know I am!

New ‘Spider-Man Far From Home Trailer’ Dropped –End Game Spoiler Warning

0

Today Marvel dropped a new trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man Far From Home movie. It does contain spoilers for Avengers: End Game, so if you have not seen it yet you probably do not want to watch the trailer.

Honesty, most of the spoilers are out anyways though.

Rumors have been circulating about how Avengers: End Game will open up a multiverse and it appears that is indeed correct.

This is really smart as it can open up Marvel to recasting characters to play aging super-heroes in other films. I don’t know how the fans will take that, but it gives them the option. They can also bring actors back that have had characters that died in “our universe” or characters we haven’t seen yet, like Miles Morales.

Either way, it looks really good. I am definitely more excited about this one than I was for Avengers: End Game. Still not as much as Godzilla, but close!

Spider-man Far From Home swings into theaters July 2nd!

Star Wars Chewbacca Actor Peter Mayhew Passed Away at Age 74

0

It’s a sad day to be a Star Wars fan.

Actor Peter Mayhew, the loveable walking carpet from several Star Wars films, has passed away at age 74. Mr. Mayhew died at his home in Texas on May 2, 2019. No cause of death has been mentioned yet.

As someone who loves the classic Star Wars films, it’s a sad day.  We’ve been around pop culture and comic conventions for many years and every time Peter Mayhew was a guest people were so excited and told wonderful stories about how kind and gracious he was.

Star Wars Co-stars and George Lucas made statements about his passing:

 

George Lucas made this statement:

“Peter was a wonderful man. He was the closest any human being could be to a Wookiee: big heart, gentle nature…and I learned to always let him win. He was a good friend and I’m saddened by his passing.”

Mr. Mayhew’s official Twitter Account Posted this:

It’s hard to lose such iconic and wonderful people. First we lost Carrie Fisher and now Peter Mayhew.

Kiss a wookie in their memory.

Marvel to Release Star Wars Sampler for Free Comic Book Day on May the 4th

0

This year Free Comic Book Day and May the 4th Be with You fall on the same day, May 4th (obviously.) So this year Marvel is going to send out a free comic that features a preview of the following comics: Tie Fighter, Galaxy’s Edge, Age of Rebellion-Boba Fett, and more along with creator interviews.

Retailers will be given 25-pack bundles based on their past orders with Diamond Comic Distributors. But, retailers could purchase additional bundles for $5.00 each. Which was a pretty good deal for 25 comics and definitely worth buying to bring more people into the shop.

There is also a Star Wars Adventures title from IDW that will be out for Free Comic Book Day as well (according to the FCBD website.)

(W) Cavan Scott (A/CA) Derek Charm
The stars have aligned: This year, Free Comic Book Day coincides with Star Wars Day! Han and Chewie race against pirates in a search for one of three identical droids that contain the location of a legendary treasure. But what our favorite smugglers don’t know is the other two droids are booby trapped! Trickery and double-crosses abound in this original story set before A New Hope! May the Fourth be with you!
Rating: Teen

Comic shops have been closing down at a troubling rate as of late. I hope that something like this can bring in fans and sales for the retailers. We don’t want to see any more comic shops close.

Here is a list of the comics that will be available on Free Comic Book Day, according to their website.

If you are interested in the special Star Wars sampler comic, make sure to visit your participating retail location to get yours on May 4th. If you aren’t interested in the Star Wars comic, stop in anyways and buy something else so we can help keep them in business.

0

Marvel has just released 32 posters of the MCU characters. The ones alive a the start of Avengers: End Game are in color, while those that perished at the end of Avengers: Infinity War are done in black and white. They have “Avenge the Fallen” written across them.

We finally know what happened to Shuri.

Here are the groups:

Living:

From Left to Right: Captain American, Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Bruce Banner, Ant Man, Captain Marvel, Hawkeye/Ronin, Okoye, Nebula, Valkyrie, Wong, War Machine, Pepper Potts, Happy Hogan, and Rocket Raccoon.

Deceased/Snapped:

From Left to Right: Spider-man, Shuri, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Groot, Wasp, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Gamora (dead to make the snap), Drax, Bucky Barnes, Bucky, Falcon, Star Lord, Mantis, Loki (dead before the snap), and Nick Fury.

Of course it’s perfectly balanced, as it should be. So now we can be 100% sure going into the film who is alive and who is gone.

Marvel’s Avengers: End Game hits theaters on April 26th (one month from today!)

 

CalArts and SCAD: Is Art School Worth It?

0

Should you go to art school if you want to work in the animation industry or comics? Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch tweets that he doesn’t believe CalArts is actually worth the money, and several blogs state that SCAD is kind of a ripoff too. Can you make a career in art WITHOUT going to art school?

Geeky is a certified art teacher and Kneon has worked professionally as a commercial artist, with many clients including Disney. What do they think?

SHE-RA Co-Creator DIES While DreamWorks Pretends They Invented Her!

0

One of She-Ra’s “two dads” died last week. Larry DiTillio, who was instrumental in the creation of the Princess of Power, passed away while DreamWorks’ PR machine still pretends that She-Ra was created by Noelle Stevenson all by herself. DreamWorks couldn’t even acknowledge his passing on social media. Seriously?!

‘Captain Marvel’ and ‘Avengers: End Game’ Super Bowl Spots

0

Marvel has two new 30 second spots for the Super Bowl.

The first one is for Captain Marvel, hitting theaters on March 8.

It’s mostly what we’ve already seen with the trailers. It starts off with a “let’s show the boys how it’s done” message and then goes into her “Higher, Further, Faster” slogan.

Not much shown that we haven’t already seen.

Avengers: End Game is the second spot

From the trailer we can tell that time has passed by the poster talking about losing loved ones.

It feels like Captain America is at a type of support group.
The trailer also shows who survived “the snap.”

I’m really looking forward to this one!

Avengers: End Game will hit theaters April 26, 2019

‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 6 First Look Trailer Dropped

0

ABC posted a “First Look” trailer for the upcoming season, Season 6, of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

From this we glean that Coulson is now dead and Mack is put in charge. They are also still looking for Fitz, who has a version of himself in stasis somewhere out in space.

We see a lot of the characters returning as well including Agent May, Daisy, Mack, Fitz, Yo-Yo, and Simmons.  We also see Piper and Enoch in the image below.

This season they are facing a new group of renegade adversaries.

But we do get a ‘surprise’ at the end of the trailer.

The new season will have 13 episodes and will begin airing in July.

What do you think? Comment and let us know.
