Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver added to roster of Avengers posters

Promotional posters for the Avengers: Age of Ultron film have been popping up regularly over the past few weeks, and today the two Maximov siblings get added to the already impressive roster of characters.

Avengers-Scarlett-Witch Avengers-Quicksilver

It already seemed like a logistical impossibility to coordinate so many different high profile characters in the first Avengers film, but Joss Whedon handled it with grace, so now we’ve got even more characters added to the mix for the sequel.  Not only Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver, but the Vision as well.  Check out all of the posters revealed thus far below, and Avengers: Age of Ultron opens May 1st.

MattyCollector 200x King Chooblah shows his hairy face

I don’t think I could love this subscription more if I tried.  No, there’s really no nostalgia laced attraction to any of these characters, but the figures themselves are insane and amazing.

King Chooblah is also known as a Kulatak Elder, who worked alongside He-Man and even became a member of the Eternian Council.  You can read my run down of all these 200x sub characters on a previous post.

Skeletor’s Love Child revealed this newest addition over on the MattyCollector message boards.  The image is mirrored below, and if you’re digging the looks of these, sign up for the mini sub while there’s still time!



The Flash returns Tuesday, March 17th!

There have been a few weeks without CW’s The Flash series, and those weeks have felt empty and meaningless.  But soon enough, The Flash will return!

Tuesday, March 17th, the next episode “Out of Time” will air, featuring the new Weather Wizard.

“Mark Mardon aka The Weather Wizard (guest star Liam McIntyre) appears in Central City intent on avenging his brother Clyde’s death, and sets his sights on Joe, who shot Clyde. When Mardon attacks Joe and Barry, Barry is able to super-speed them to safety but Mardon gets away. Barry warns Joe not to go after a meta-human alone but Joe doesn’t listen and ends up in grave danger. Meanwhile, Cisco looks into the night the team captured the Reverse Flash and realizes something doesn’t add up and begins to wonder whether Joe was right about Dr. Wells. Barry and Linda (guest star Malese Jow) end up on an awkward double date with Eddie and Iris.”

Along with the preview for the next episode, CW has released two great posters of The Flash and Reverse Flash.

Masters of the Universe Classics “Ninjor” Ninja Warrior

As a kid, my interest in Masters of the Universe was fading as my interest in G.I. Joe was surging forward into the formative years of a Real American Hero. However, I have a distinct memory of purchasing Ninjor at Rich’s Department Store in West Lebanon, NH.

For that reason, I was immediately determined to purchase his Classics version from the MattyCollector store.
