The Heroes Assemble knock-off (KO) version of LEGO's Iron Man Hulkbuster playset is quite a pleasant rip-off: stury, playable and, save for the missing LEGO marks, practically indiscernible from the original.
If you haven't seen it yet (Have you been living under a rock?) millions of Avengers fans were thrilled to the bones when Tony Stark took on the Incredible Hulk in a suit designed solely for that purpose. One that he and Doctor Bruce Banner designed and endearingly nicknamed "Veronica."

|I can see you|
We are such big fans of Takara's LG-35 Powermaster Optimus Prime that we forgave them for making him a Headmaster - especially since the smaller Optimus Prime head formed by Ginrai is virtually useless.
Frankly we were not too keen about modifying a Takara, but Perfect Effect made him better, so.... here he is (And we absolutely hate the Hasbro version) with PE's Perfect Combiner - 15 (PC-15)
MORE AFTER THE JUMP

|I am one with the Force. And the Force is with me.|
Chirrut Imwe is one of the most iconic characters to come out of Rogue One for several reasons:
- He's the first major Star Wars character of Oriental (We're Oriental and frankly Oriental is not a racial slur - Go Iron Fist!) origin.
- He's sparked debate as to the efficacy of Stormtrooper armor.
- While there are races and martial arts in the Star Wars Universe that mimic or surpass Force abilities, what exactly is Chirrut Imwe?

The new Justice League Trailer is out and it is awesome:
- Really digging Aquaman's attitude. Make no mistake, this is not the guy the Justice League leaves behind because they aren't going to fight in water.
- The team seems to be coalescing well in combat
- Gal Gadot is as beautiful as ever.
- Lots of cameos - Mera, Barry's dad, Commissioner Gordon, Lois etc...
- Cyborg's CGI looks iffy.
- The Flash is a bit effeminate.
- Aerosmith's Come Together was a nice touch.
Let's just hope that this trailer doesn't lead to another Suicide Squad.
