When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett [Johansson] does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that. There’s so many of these little people out here doing awful things for money in the world of being famous. And little girls see that. They should have the opposite spectrum of that to look up to.
Dreamboat, check, awesome human being, check.

I guess it can’t be worse than Trebor.
I was going to joke how in the post-apocalyptic wastes of the late 21st century this would be held up as a warning mankind ignored and a price thus paid.
Instead, I’ll just observe that if one were to tag this Illuminati and Freemason, real-life conspiracy theorists would claim this was yet another foretelling of a future crime, placed in comics by 23rd level masons as a lesser magick ritual.
Programmable Tattoo System
What do you do when you want a tattoo but don’t want the commitment of permanent ink? The moodInq system is a breakthrough in tattoo technology, using a skin-safe proprietary E ink encapsulated pigment system that lasts a lifetime but can be configured to display any design (or none!) to suit your mood.
So how does it work? We have partnered with leading physicians and technicians in the cosmetic surgery industry to implant the E ink grid, called a canvas. The canvas can go anywhere on your body and be configured to the size and shape of the body party you’d like to ink. After a short healing period (usually 2-3 days), you can begin using the moodInq software included with your kit to change your canvas to display the tattoo you desire! Found on ThinkGeek.
I’d probably want to wait until there’s an actual patent on this/it gets more positive press but ASDF#$#@^! I HAVE A MIGHTY WANT.
That is some Shadowrun shit right there.
Botcon 2014 Exclusive Ginrai (Fiery Classics Optimus Prime!) Revealed
Botcon have announced the fifth member of their convention boxed set today and it is an impressive piece indeed. The fifth member of the set is Ginrai, a fiery red and orange redeco of the venerable Classics Optimus Prime figure.
Ginrai is the second Cybertronian Knight in the boxed set, and by way of an alternate wrist transformation is shown here holding his windvane as a shield - the windvane being adorned with the new symbol of the Cybertronian Knights. The toy’s deco is based on the "Fire Guts" Ginrai featured in the 1988 Japanese series, Transformers Chojin (Super God) Masterforce, which in that series was the final attack of the Godmaster, Super Ginrai and his powered up form God Ginrai. An E-Hobby exclusive depicting the attack was released in the early 2000s, which is where this deco takes its cues from. With the reveal of Ginrai the five figures in this year’s Botcon boxed set are known, and they are:Ginrai from Classics Optimus Prime
Devcon from Generations Scourge, with a new head
Scorponok from Energon Scorponok, retooled to use a remolded Encore Spike as his Headmaster
Ferak from Universe Cyclonus
Cannonball from Prime Ratchet, with a new headBotcon 2014 is being held over the weekend of June 19 - 22 in Pasadena, California. Visit the Botcon homepage for more information on the convention, the official 30th anniversary of Transformers convention and also the 20th anniversary Botcon!
beautiful, continuity-confusing orange.
finally, BURNING JUSTICE.
Burning your retinas.
I gotta say tho, when Cannonball and BLAZING ORANGE OPTIMUS are the two weakest parts of the set?
I love that, by cementing the “Fire Guts” color scheme, this gives Ginrai a color scheme that allows him to be used in stateside lines and fiction without him being an Optimus Prime that’s colored like Optimus Prime.
Hey Linkara, just watched the Athena #2 review. It's a great review, but there's one thing that warrants explanation. I used to order comics for a local shop. 2nd issue orders typically can't be based on 1st issue sales on monthly titles. Books are ordered 2 months in advance, so #2 always takes a dip because its less risky than over-ordering. #3 is when you find out if it's a flop or a hit. Thus decades of Marvel guest starring Spider-Man, and later Wolverine, in new series' second issues.
Yeah, though in this case I recall peeking at #3’s sales, too. Still around 4,000, same as #2.
Yeah, that can be very easily blamed on issue #1. I’m kinda shocked it didn’t plummet further. I wasn’t expecting Athena to actually do well, just mentioning that #2 sales numbers are a weird anomaly of the ordering process.
That said, when I was doing comic ordering, the standard operating procedure to majorly under-order #2 issues of the “boob books” because you knew they weren’t going to do well and it was always the same ten dudes that had them on the pull list. It was rare that we ever got surprised by that sort of thing.
It is a lot of fun to go through old Marvel book launches. You can always tell the most popular character that year by who the obligatory #2 issue guest star is. Sometimes it was Spider-Man, usually it was Wolverine, and I recall a few Venom pop-ups but that might be the sleep deprivation talking.
