The Toy Box – Reno Final Fantasy VII Advent Children

Posted by on Jul 31, 2013 in Toy Box | 0 comments

Say hello to Reno of the Turks from Final Fantasy VII Advent Children. This was the first figure from the Advent Children line I bought. One of the main reasons I bought it was because my wife loved this character. I also really enjoyed the way it looked. The sculpt on it really good. The hair alone  amazed me. I felt it was really cool looking. He came with several sets of hand and a stand for different cool poses. I would have a picture of the hands, but I’m not sure what happened to them. My guess is the dog got a hold of them. After I bought Reno, Several more figures came along. If you like this Play Arts action figure as much as I do, there is a link below to purchase it off of...

Heroes and Villains pod cast about the Flash

Posted by on Jul 30, 2013 in Comics, Books and Such, Podcasts | 0 comments

For some reason, Bruce Leslie from the Heroes and Villains podcast invited us back on his show! This time Tom picked his favorite DC character, Wally West aka the Flash. We talk origin, influences, enemies and Dan just agrees most of the episode since Tom is the fountain of knowledge of all things Flash. Tom knowledge is so vast about Wally, I’m surprise Bruce just didn’t hand the show over to him. But if he didn’t that, all you’d have to listen to is just Tom, and no one wants to hear that. So sit back and listen to this great episode of a bunch of nerds talking about The 3rd Flash, Wally West. Click on either two of the images for this episode that you can even listen to at work  or on the run. (huh! get it?) Follow...

Wolverine #90

Posted by on Jul 30, 2013 in Comic Books | 0 comments

I don’t mean to over do the Wolverine on the site here, but this is another Wolverine comic that really struck a chord with me. This was the first time I really saw Logan do harm to another living creature instead of cutting guns, or robots or threatening people. This was a big deal for my time as well. Wolverine verses Sabretooth, sure they fought all the time, but this was the fight of fights. Victor was basically telling Logan he was a push over and that when he lets him go free, like Logan always does, he’s going to go and torture and kill all the people  in Wolverine’s life he’s cared for. Mid monologue, Wolverines claw comes up through Sabretooth’s head, and Wolverine lobotomizes him. It was the coolest thing I’ve seen Wolvie do at that point....

Wolverine #79

Posted by on Jul 29, 2013 in Comics, Books and Such | 0 comments

In the Snikt! episode when I was talking about one of my favorite Wolverine story lines, and I had mentioned Wolverine #75 when his bone claws are exposed for the first time. This issue was Written by Larry Hama and illustrated by Adam Kubert. A few issues right after the Fatal Attractions story line, where magneto ripped the adamantium out of Wolverine, he finds himself training in the danger room, where Professor X and the X-men looking on and making sure that Logan is doing ok. Then he gets beaten up a little and proceeds to use his claws. At this point in time I was unaware if he even had claws, or what. I was always under the impression that the Weapon X project gave them to him with the adamantium laced bones. This one splash page by Kubert...

When Nerds Collide #20 – Snikt!

Posted by on Jul 28, 2013 in Comics, Books and Such, Podcasts | 0 comments

We actually did a Wolverine episode! Can you believe it? I can’t. Since the The Wolverine came out in theaters we figured we would go ahead and talk the most famous Marvel character there is. We talk about our first experience with Logan and whether or not he was gentle. Dan goes over his favorite story lines, and Tom chimes in once or twice cause he’s not a big fan of The Ol’ Canucklehead. Then unexpectedly Bruce from the Heroes and Villains pod cast (@hvpodcast) pops up at the end and joins us for the remainder of the show. So come on over and listen, cause pod casting is the best at what we do. But what we do isn’t very nice. Or good. Or structured. Or done well.       When Nerds Collide 20 – Snikt http://media.blubrry.com/whennerdscollide/p/whennerdscollide.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/When-Nerds-Collide-20-Snikt.mp3Podcast: Play...
