Pretty in Pink

Back in the day, when it came to toys for boys and girls, things were much pretty black and white. Robots, soldiers, superheroes and anything that carried a weapon or sported an action feature were all definitely for boys. And on the flipside, dolls or anything cute and cuddly were for the girls.

A Shot At Greedo

Aside from Jedi Knights, Sith Lords & Droids, Star Wars if pretty much known for all the unique and mostly interesting looking alien characters that populate the universe. One of the first significant aliens we meet in a New Hope is a certain amphibious green skinned individual with a smooth melodic voice whose most unfortunate claim to fame is that he basically got himself killed.

Whether it’s asking a friend’s opinion or reading user reviews on an online product page, a little research is always key to successfully purchasing a product we will be happy with.

Well Then, Too Bad

The original Masters of the Universe toy line of the 80’s will always be remembered for the hundreds of interesting and sometimes questionable character designs produced. Every year, the guys at Mattel churned out a new batch of new heroic and evil warriors in an effort to outdo what they released the year before or at least keep things interesting. And in 1985, as part of their 4th wave of figures, they released a character whose toy literally broke the mold.

Megatron's Hound

Way back in 2003, Transformers fans all around the world rejoiced when news broke that a live action movie was green-lighted for release in 2007. While it was still 4 years away, that did not stop excited fans from scouring the internet for any piece of information about the movie and speculating on what the actual finished product would be like. And most importantly of course, with hundreds of characters already existing in the franchise, everyone wanted to know exactly which of their favorite robots in disguise would ultimately make the leap into the big screen.

A Knight's Tale

Whether it's an accurate assumption or not, when one thinks of the “black knight”, one often thinks of an evil or villainous character. To my knowledge the black knight isn’t an actual real historical person but instead is a popular literary stock character. They are oftentimes portrayed as knights with hidden identities and no public signs of loyalty to any liege. And they use this anonymity to commit dastardly and evil deeds. Given that, it would seem rather odd to actually create a superhero based on the concept of a “black knight”...but that’s exactly what Marvel did.
