Issue 144: Welcome Back, Mego!

Mego action figures were the start of collecting, and comic book love, for many collectors from Generation X. With the soft goods outfits, removable boots, varied accessories and more, these figures have become harder to find but that doesn’t stop collectors from trying. But now Diamond Select Toys has the license to reproduce classic Mego action figures! The first three are out – Spider-Man, Captain America, and one never made in the classic Mego line: Wolverine! In addition to being nostalgic throw-backs, DST is also including upgraded outfits and alternate outfits, all expanding the Mego line while paying homage.

On this issue of Marvelicious Toys, Marjorie and Justin join long-time Mego lover Arnie to review these three figures. Joint hem to find out if these are faithful representations, and if the toys are just for older collectors or for everyone!

But while older collectors love the toys of their youth, younger fans prefer the simple pleasures — such as Hasbro’s Titan Hero Tech figures. On this issue the hosts review three of the Age of Ultron Titan Tech figures, as well as the two Entertainment Earth exclusive Titan Heroes: Hawkeye and Iron Legion!

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

Today the words Jurassic Park bring to mind a T-Rex roaring at a car, Sam Neil running through a pack of CGI dinosaurs, and John Williams score–all from Steven Spielberg’s hit 1993 film. But before it was a movie, Jurassic Park was a bestselling novel by sci-fi author Michael Crichton. The book and the movie share some basic plot elements, but there are also key differences. How do they compare? Join Stuart in L.A. for this review of Crichton’s novel, then head to Now Playing Podcast’s donation page to hear that crew’s thoughts on the film!

The Long Walk by Stephen King (as Richard Bachman)

King’s first novel wasn’t Carrie, it was The Long Walk written while the author was a college freshman. It tells of a dystopian, alternate America in which the national pastime isn’t Baseball, it’s a contest of stamina and will–The Long Walk. King’s story of one of these Walks, and walker Raymond Garraty, wouldn’t be published for over a decade, until it was released in 1979 as the second novel by King’s pen name “Richard Bachman.”

In this episode of Books & Nachos, Arnie reviews and analyzes this early work by the bestselling author. Join him now in this review of the second Bachman Book!

Issue 135: I Want to Hold Hulk Hand

For Captain America the shield is more than defense–it’s a symbol of America and taking “the American Dream and make it an American reality.” Now, nearly 75 years after first appearing in Captain America Comics #2, Captain America and his shield serve as a symbol, both in the Marvel Universe and in the real world, of strength, idealism, and patriotism. And as seen in The Avengers and the two Captain America movies, it’s pretty darn cool as well!

In 2014 eFX Collectibles’ gave fans their chance to be like Stephen Colbert and put Captain America’s shield on their walls with their Avengers Captain America Shield Prop Replica. A full scale collectible cast from the original molds of the prop used in The Avengers, this eFX prop had been teased for years. Even with an edition size of 1,500 it sold out quickly. But the Marvelicious Toys hosts have one in-hand and review it on this episode!

Also on this show, a quick review of the new Ultimate Spider-Man Web Warriors figures from Hasbro, a look at the new Thanos and Captain America figures from Hot Toys, and a preview of the new LEGO UCS LEGO set.

In the second part of this podcast series Arnie explores the heroic characters featured in The Stand, including Stuart Redmond, Fran Goldsmith, Larry Underwood, and Nick Andros. He also analyzes the deadly superflu Captain Trips, and the start of the novel’s biblical allegories.

The Dark Man by Stephen King

Of all the monsters in Stephen King’s fiction none have captured reader imaginations quite like The Stand’s Randall Flagg–The Walkin’ Dude, The Dark Man. But nine years before The Stand was published King wrote of this Dark Man who walked, rode trains, and hitchhiked across America leaving bodies in his wake. This is detailed in King’s college poem “The Dark Man.” In 2013 Cemetery Dance Publications printed this in an illustrated book, and Arnie has read and reviewed it in this episode of Books & Nachos. Join him to learn about The Dark Man’s early appearance as he prepares for next week’s review of The Stand.

The Prestige by Christopher Priest

One stage magician learns how to split himself into two so that he can challenge a pair of rival illusionists who pretend to be one in The Prestige, Christopher Priest’s sneaky story of splintering identities. Even if you think you’ve spoiled the trick by seeing the popular Christian Bale-Hugh Jackman movie, there are more secrets to be found in the book’s sprawling five-part structure that spans the 20th Century. Join Stuart In LA as he studies the source material and weighs in on which Christopher – Nolan or Priest – is the better conjurer.

Issue 129: Holding Out for a Big Hero 6

It’s been a great year for Marvel movies and that looks to continue today with the release of Big Hero 6. This film is the first movie from Disney Animation to be based on Marvel Comics characters, and the ones chosen are even more obscure than the Guardians of the Galaxy! But with this new movie comes new licensing deals, and the toys are not from Hasbro but Ban Dai. In this issue of Marvelicious Toys, join Marjorie, Arnie, and Justin as they look at the 4-inch figure line as well as the SDCC exclusive Baymax figure!



But also on this show is something for fans of more classic Marvel characters. Hitting Targets is an exclusive three pack of Marvel Legends figures: Ms. Marvel, Radioactive Man, and Captain America. Is this set worth hunting down? Watch this show for a full review!



With more news on Marvel films, some stocking stuffers in the toy aisle, and more, it’s all in this new Marvelicious Toys podcast!

The Last Rung on the Ladder (from the Night Shift collection) by Stephen King

The short stories collected in Stephen King’s Night Shift were written over more than a decade–some originally published in 1968, others printed for the first time in this book. As such, the stories, while having certain similarities, are also wildly varied from the gothic horror of “Jerusalem’s Lot” to the more ghastly comedy found in “Gray Matter” to the realistic, personal drama of “The Woman in the Room.”

“The Last Rung on the Ladder”, a Night Shift original, is a dramatic short story in which a man recounts one day when he was ten years old, and he and his little sister played a dangerous game that almost had fatal consequences.

Now join Arnie for this review review of “The Last Rung on the Ladder”!

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King by J. R. R. Tolkien

Author JRR Tolkien spent three books, and over a thousand pages, creating a dense Middle Earth mythology. Now he brings that age of folklore to a thunderous close with Return of the King. Here all of the saga’s major characters are granted an opportunity to fulfill their destiny. Among the questions answered:

Can vagabond king Aragorn gather the army he needs to return to Gondor and reclaim his royal birthright from invading hordes? Will shieldmaiden Eowyn earn the respect of King Theoden and the other warriors by disguising herself as a man on the battlefield?And most centrally, will ringbearer Frodo have the inner strength to escape Orc captivity and finally reach Mount Doom? And will there be a Shire for the Hobbit to return to should he succeed in destroying the One Ring? Join Jakob (who grew up on Tolkien) and Stuart (who previously only knew the story from Peter Jackson’s work) as they dig deep into the original text in preparation for the Now Playing Silver and Platinum donation reviews of all Hobbit and Lord of the Rings film adaptations.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien

A new front in the fight for Middle Earth opens as Hobbits Frodo and Sam continue their eastern journey to Mordor with only monstrous Gollum as a guide, leaving behind their friends to defend the remaining human kingdoms from evil wizard Saruman. With Two Towers, author JRR Tolkien abandons the lighthearted Hobbiton simplicity that made his books appealing to children, and presents a sprawling tapestry of global warfare that teems with dozens of new characters and subplots. Will all of this added complexity have the podcasters begging to return to The Shire with Merry and Pippin, or is Middle Earth an even better playground for adults?

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien

It took almost twenty years for the author of The Hobbit to pen a sequel – time enough for the children who grew up on the story to mature into readers capable of tackling a darker, denser saga spanning three separate novels. Fellowship of the Ring begins the adventure with aged journeyman Bilbo Baggins giving nephew Frodo a magic ring he won from monstrous Gollum. Wizard Gandalf can see the treasure is a conduit for dark magic, and sends the new ringbearer and his three Hobbit friends Sam, Merry, and Pippin on a journey to Rivendell. There a council of elves, dwarfs, and humans must decide the best course of action to take against growing enemy Sauron.Join Jakob (who grew up on Tolkien) and Stuart (who previously only knew the story from Peter Jackson’s work) as they dig deep into the original text in preparation for the Now Playing Silver and Platinum donation reviews of all Hobbit and Lord of the Rings film adaptations.

New Podcast – Star Wars Action News Episode 432: A New Dawn for Star Wars Fiction

Last Spring it was announced that the Star Wars canon was taking a new direction. To pave way for the upcoming Episode VII as well as the Rebels TV series the previous Star Wars “Expanded Universe” was reclassified as Star Wars Legends, wiping the slate clean for a new era of Star Wars stories. That begins today with the release of A New Dawn, the Star Wars Rebels tie-in novel by John Jackson Miller. In this episode of Star Wars Action News Brock joins us with a review of this first novel in a new age of Star Wars fiction.

‚ÄčAlso on this week’s show, Marjorie and Arnie review Hasbro’s 4th wave of Black Series 3.75-inch figures. From Dagobah Luke to Yoda to Toryn Farr, watch the video to see hands-on reviews of these collector-oriented figures!

The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien

It’s hard to believe there was a time when the world didn’t know of Hobbits, those hairy-toed homebodies who prefer a good pipe and cozy hole in the ground to the promise of fame and fortune. But their secret subterranean lifestyle was exposed in 1937 when author J.R.R. Tolkien published The Hobbit. Intended for children, but serving as the basis for his more sophisticated later Lord of the Rings trilogy, this introductory Middle Earth novel offers a delightful account of how paternalistic wizard Gandalf prodded sheltered Bilbo Baggins to step outside his comfort zone and help a band of dwarfs reclaim their kingdom.



The Hobbit is celebrated and castigated in equal measure for re-popularizing folklore in 20th Century literature – presenting a detailed alternate universe teaming with warmongering elves, hungry trolls, giant spiders, and a fire breathing dragon. Is it all just fodder for role-playing games and kiddie cartoons 77 years later, or are there timeless life lessons and enduring appeal to what’s on the page? Join hosts Jakob (who grew up with Tolkien) and Stuart (a fantasy-challenged reader) as they revisit this milestone in preparation for a larger Hobbit/Lord of the Rings movie retrospective being created for Silver and Platinum donors to sister podcast Now Playing.

Issue 124: I Am Electro Head

Marvel movies have had one of their best years ever in 2014. The X-Men were back with a vengeance in Days of Future Past.

On this issue of the Marvelicious Toys podcast Justin, Marjorie, and Arnie give their thoughts on Guardians, from a dancing baby Groot to a mechanical arm! Plus they run down all the Amazing Spider-Man 2 exclusive releases, and the upcoming exclusives for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Firestorm by Greg Keyes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set in a post-apocalyptic San Francisco where an uneasy truce is being negotiated between distrustful apes and paranoid human survivors. How did things get so bad between man and his closest genetic match to make war such an inevitable outcome? And what was life like in the initial days after apes broke free of their cages and stormed across the Golden Gate bridge to take refuge in the Redwoods? In the prequel novel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Firestorm author Greg Keyes returns to the year 2011, bringing together all new characters with the fan favorites of Rise of the Planet of the Apes to explore a turning point in both species’ survival. Does he find a way to expand upon the movie universe, or are you better off skipping this 304 page preview and just reading the new film’s numerous subtitles?

Stuart in LA answers this and more in his final Planet of the Apes podcast of the summer. Listen now!Then head to Now Playing Podcast’s donation page to hear the movie retrospective! The movie podcasts are only available until July 31, 2014!

Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes by Andrew E. C. Gaska

Planet of the Apes might have begun in literature, but it reached mass popularity and commercial success with the 1968 Charlton Heston movie. That cinema classic, and its four sequels, presents a stark future Earth where Mankind has slipped back into savagery and become slaves to our evolutionary brethren.



In 2011 – the same year Twentieth Century Fox released blockbuster reboot Rise of the Planet of the Apes – Archaia Entertainment, author Andrew Gaska, and over a dozen celebrated illustrators launched a continuation of the original movie universe in print. Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes retells the story of the time-traveling Liberty 1 space mission using gorilla, chimp, orang, and human characters we never got to know in the movies.Join Stuart in LA to hear if this illustrated novel is a bold reinterpretation of a landmark film, or just aping the past for quick cash.

New Podcast – Star Wars Action News Episode 427: These Aren't the Shoes You're Looking For!

Mara Jade was instantly a fan favorite character. When she first graced the pages of the Star Wars expanded universe in Timothy Zahn’s 1991 book Heir to the Empire she was embraced by Star Wars fans. It wasn’t long before the figure also appeared in video games, action figures, the Return of the Jedi Radio Drama and more. But now with the Star Wars Expanded Universe being rebranded “Legends” Mara Jade’s canonical status is uncertain and fans who’ve followed the character for over twenty years cannot look forward to new Mara Jade adventures. However fans can own a statue of Mara Jade, perhaps for the last time! Announced before the Expanded Universe reboot, Kotobukiya’s Mara Jade Bishoujo has recently been released as a companion to their previous (also EU) statue of Jaina Solo. On this Star Wars Action News podcast listen to find out if this statue is a gem you should own!

Also on this podcast, hosts Marjorie and Arnie went Star Wars shoe shopping at Journeys. With Vans new Star Wars line of footwear, plus two exclusive statues from Funko, tune in to find out how they got both and which are better–the shoes or the statues!

With details on the 4th Annual Star Wars Fan Breakfast at San Diego Comic-Con, reviews of J.W. Rinzler’s Star Wars Storyboards books, San Diego Comic-Con exclusive sell-outs and more, it’s all in this jam-packed episode of Star Wars Action News!

New Podcast – Star Wars Action News Episode 425: Only Imperial Stormtroopers Are So Verbose

With Hasbro having difficulty getting new figures to store pegs in any scale, collectors are forced to find their excitement places other than Wal-Mart, Target, and Toys R Us. Most specifically The Disney Stores where a new 13-inch line of talking, articulated Star Wars figures have started to appear. The X-Wing Luke Skywalker and Stormtrooper are on store shelves now, and in this episode of Star Wars Action News you can see a hands-on review of the Stormtrooper to find out if you need to add this to your collection.

But while Hasbro is in a late spring lull, news leaked last week of new Black Series releases on the horizon. In this show you can find out about three possible new Toys R Us exclusive multi-packs that have strong Original Trilogy ties.

With news on how YOU can be in Star Wars Episode VII, a discussion of the upcoming Disney Star Wars marathon, reports from Disney Star Wars Weekends and the UK Collectormania 21, and more, it’s all in this week’s Star Wars Action News!

2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke

Many times movies are made based on popular novels. Other times marketing companies see easy money in releasing cheap novelizations of upcoming films. 200: A Space Odyssey is one case where neither is true. The classic film and novel resulted as a collaboration between Dr. Strangelove director Stanley Kubrick and science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke. Together they created a story that spans great distances in time and space. However, while the two men consulted each other they worked independently in their own mediums and the resulting film and book resemble each other but also have important differences with the novel providing lots of concrete explanation for what the film left ambiguous. Now join Stuart to hear about the creation of the novel of 2001: A Space Odyssey and find out if the axiom is true and the book is better than the movie!

Then head to Now Playing Podcast to hear Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob review the film version of 2001 and 2010!

Planet of the Apes by Pierre Boulle

Everyone knows Planet of the Apes, the movie. With Charlton Heston’s oft-quoted lines and the famously spoiled twist ending, the film has entered the American lexicon. Less known, however, is the original novel that inspired the 1968 motion picture. This original telling, published in 1963 and written by French author Pierre Boulle, created a vision that inspired Hollywood to film it, but the novel also differs from its cinematic counterpart in key ways. Join Stuart in this episode of Books and Nachos as he reads and reviews the book as a companion to Now Playing Podcast’s bonus, limited Planet of the Apes movie retrospective.

Then head to Now Playing Podcast’s donation page to hear the movie retrospective! The movie podcasts are only available until July 31, 2014!
