Wrestling Playset Type B

Last year for my birthday I received Wrestling Playset (Style B), you may have seen these in your locale dollar store. Mine has been sitting in my closet since I got it but tonight I pulled it out and opened it.

You get two figures, four accessories like a guardrail, ladder, trash can, and construction cone. Even the ring has a center logo that says Extreme Championship Wrestlers. The turnbuckles are kinda small and ring posts have that cheap plastic, it may break if you put too much tension on it.

I can see this as a good alternative and at a dollar store price, I’m guessing $5 or $10 isn’t bad. I may have to visit my dollar stores more often for these kind of wrestling playsets.

Spider-man: Far From Home Trailer

When I went and saw Avengers Infinity War in the theater I remember hearing someone crying when Spider-Man gets turned to dust. While the scene between him and Tony Stark is touching, knowing that there was a new Spider-Man movie coming out kind of nullified any sadness for me.

Now we get to see what Peter Parker is going to be up to once Avengers Endgame rolls its credits. Looks like an overseas class trip is in order. We finally get to see Nick Fury recruit Spider-Man and most importantly we get Mysterio. While it’s not the Bruce Campbell Mysterio we all kind of wanted during the original Spider-Man trilogy this version still looks pretty cool to me. Check out the trailer below.

The Midnight Drive-In: The Deadly Bees & The Swarm

We are down a host as Doug got another moose tangled up in his internet so we start things off for some reason talking about Patrick Swayze and then transition to talking about people from the Poltergeist films.

Curt Hawkins Elite Series 64 Review

I received my first WWE True FX figure in Curt Hawkins (Elite 64). I’m glad Mattel is going with the Hasbro model with their figures, with interchangeable hands, heads and sometimes build-a-figure.

Hawkins face scan is perfect and swapping hands is easy like a Marvel Legends fig. He comes with a removable vest, cane, and breakaway RAW wall. I didn’t get the variant but the orange and blue.

Now that I got Hawkins I can now place him next to Ryder to fantasy book a episode of The Major Wrestling Figure Podcast.

 


The Midnight Drive-In: Starcrash & Flash Gordon

Also we chat about Blood Simple, The Predator, and how our Christmas was.

Hellboy Trailer Drops

Lionsgate gave us an early Christmas present by dropping the new Hellboy trailer today. This reboot of the Del Toro films seems to pick up on a similar tone which makes me wonder why Mignola wanted to start over rather than continue on with Del Toro’s series of films. He promised a darker tone but this seems on the same track.  I guess we’ll see in April when the film hits theaters.

The Midnight Drive-In: Uninvited & Strays

Legends of Tomorrow gets snubbed on crossover invite, Doesn’t need it.

I don’t know how many of you are watching even watching the CW Arrowverse anymore. I want to say I don’t blame you, then make a snide remark about Guggenheim’s continued decimation of a once proud group of shows, but I can’t. I myself have only been keeping up with Legends this season. The plan is to eventually catch up with Arrow just to see if maybe it’s getting better, knowing in my heart that it probably isn’t.

But it’s crossover season, so I tuned in this week. While I haven’t kept up with the individual shows, the first thing the crossover taught me was that I don’t want, or need to catch up with Flash, and probably the same for Supergirl.  

This isn’t to say that the crossover was not any good. It had a lot of great moments, but that’s for another piece. This is about the Legends’ place, or lack thereof, in this year’s crossover. 

Legends is, for lack of a better word, insane. Each week seems to be a bigger dare as to what they can get away with, and I’m absolutely loving it. So when a magical item shows up in the crossover, and the gang start relying on the tech nerds to crack it, I was more than a little bothered by it. You’ve got Constantine RIGHT THERE on the Waverider!

But then the midseason finale for Legends came on, and instantly all was forgiven. It quickly became apparent that not only did Legends not NEED to participate this year, but doing so would have only slowed them down. 

For those not following, Legends has a get out of responsibility free card. They have a time machine, and are on the search for magical creatures this season. When you have those cards to play, you can do damn near anything you want. 

Without revealing too much, Constantine has managed to completely screw up the whole of reality, and now must set things straight with the help of a shapeshifter and a cat. Believe me, it’s weirder than it sounds.

They try over and over to set the timeline back to order, and along the way , this happens:

This happens to be one of my two favorite timelines that are made and unmade over the course of the episode. There are more on YouTube for you to discover on your own…oh, fine, one more won’t hurt. 

Did I mention how ridiculous this show is? Maybe you’re a fan of the darker, grittier DC, and I am too, but come on. Singing puppets. How can you not love it? I know I keep saying it, but right now, Legends is the best of the Arrowverse. Full stop.  After this episode, I agree with the decision to leave Legends out of the crossover, but for a different reason. The showrunners had their actors’ already grueling schedule in mind. I’m glad they didn’t do it because it would have ruined the Legends midseason finale.
