The Outer Space Men are Celebrating 50 Years of Toy Innovation at Five Points Festival!

Five Points Festival show sponsor, The Outer Space Men, are set to display brand new 12″ and 8ft versions of the epic Colossus Rex figure!

New York, NY (May 28, 2018) – Hitting the scene in 1968 and licensed to Colorforms, The Outer Space Men were a group of seven bendable action figures designed by toy inventor Mel Birnkrant. Each of the original seven figures represented beings from other planets in our solar system including Alpha 7, The Man From Mars; Astro-Nautilus, The Man From Neptune; Commander Comet, The Man From Venus; Colossus Rex, The Man From Jupiter; Electron+, The Man From Pluto; Orbitron, The Man From Uranus; and Xodiac – The Man From Saturn.

After their initial success, they faded from the public eye in 1969 after man walked on the moon. It was in 2008 that wall street executive and co-owner of The Outer Space Men, Gary Schaeffer, published the long-awaited graphic novel reintroducing a whole new generation to The Outer Space Men world. With the huge success of the graphic novel, Birnkrant and Schaeffer issued a license to the four horsemen studios (seventh kingdom, mythic legions, masters of the universe) and released a new series of action figures.

To celebrate this auspicious occasion Clutter Studios has produced an 8ft tall Colossus Rex. Working for the past 4 months, Clutter Studios used 3D scanning and printing technology, to scan one of the original Colossus Rex figures and upscale it to both 12” and 8 ft tall.  3D printing both versions, Clutter Studios assembled and finished an 8ft version with full articulation and a genuinely deadly two-handed battle mace!

Be the first to see the amazing new 12” Colossus Rex in person, and take a photo with the awesome 8ft sculpture.

Netflix’s Punisher will be released…

Just recently we found out that Netflixs The Defenders will be assembling August 18th. Now even more big news but this one about Netflix’s The Punisher was released by Jon Bernthal (The Punshier himself). Which is the non-official poster that is featured on this article. More specifically it states that The Punshier will premiere this year. My guess it would be towards the end, maybe November or December. What do you think?

The Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience is an incredible experience!

Last night I had the pleasure of seeing The Game of Throne Live Concert Experience at Madison Square Garden, it was a sight to behold. A complete immersive experience with a live orchestra, videos from the show and pyrotechnics. This concert is definitely a must, for fans of the show. Watching clips with the live orchestra is absolutely astonishing. One scene in particular had some fire pyrotechnics. Every time a dragon flew by the flames will shoot out from the stage and you could feel the heat, it’s amazing. The show’s composer Ramin Djawadi is the conductor of the live experience. He gets a chance to prove how talented he is, not just as a composer but also as a musician. Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who plays Bran Stark makes an appearance as well.

For fans of the show you will not be disappointed. Don’t miss out on this incredible experience!

The Flash vs Grodd! The epic conclusion to Gorilla City. Is it any good?

Tonight on The Flash concludes the Gorilla City event. Last week’s episode was flawed, but a lot fun. You could read our full review here.

After the events of Attack on Gorilla City. Grodd has kidnaped Gypsy (a meta-human who could journey through the multi-verse). Using Gypsy’s powers Grodd has devised a plan. That will revert him to Earth-1 with an army of Apes to destroy Central City.

Attack on Central City just like its previous episode, looks outstanding. You could distinguish that the producers spent most of the show’s budget on these two episodes. I’m not stating that the other episodes look bad. They’re simply not as epic as these episodes. When Grodd and his army battle team Flash it looks awesome, it just didn’t work out the way I wanted it to. I won’t dwell any deeper, since I’ll be entering into spoiler territory.

The cast always does a wonderful job. Everyone is charismatic and they have great chemistry with each other. It works well on the small screen. Truth is, if these characters had no chemistry. The show wouldn’t work as well as it does.

As far as the narrative goes. It’s not as elaborate and well composed as some other episodes. Don’t get me wrong here. That’s not really a bad thing. This episode is intended to be fun, that’s what it is and it does it well.

Does 24: Legacy live up to the legacy of 24?

24 makes another return after the explosive miniseries event Live Another Day. With primarily a new cast and one returning star. Does Legacy live up to the legacy of 24 (no pun intended)? For the most part, yes it does.
Corey Hawkins plays Eric Carter the last survivor of a Rangers squad that is being hunted down by a terrorist organization. With nowhere else to turn, the man asks CTU to help him save his life while also stopping one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.
One of the things that always worked with 24 was the cast. Legacy follows suit, with Corey Hawkins taking the lead. The cast does an awesome job from Corey Hawkins to Miranda Otto with the drama that’s unfolding in front of us. Carlos Bernard makes a welcome return as Tony Almeida. After being MIA for three years and making an appearance in the short 24: Solitary. I won’t go into any spoilers. Let’s simply say it’s awesome to see Carlos playing Tony again.
The action is top notch. Some of the set pieces are really elaborate. The fights are also well choreographed, Corey is believable and brutal. One scene in particular was set up nicely and looked wonderful.
Actually the only issue I had with Legacy is in its story. While I’m glad that it’s a lot like the original. But it’s too much like it. Same story line about terrorists, another major attack and someone in CTU is a traitor. Guess what? Even though the show’s script isn’t unique and it’s sticking with the same rhythm. Legacy is still exciting and thrilling.
24: Legacy might not be unique, but it’s still one hell of a ride.
