We finally know who will be playing Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: former Academy Award Nominee Josh Brolin. As of now Brolin is just mentioned to voice the Mad Titan, however odds are that Brolin will be doing some type of Mo-Cap work on the character similar to Mark Ruffalo's Hulk. Having an actor with the gravitas of Josh Brolin play perhaps the deadliest villain in the Marvel Universe will hopefully raise the stakes to those not yet seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Expect Thanos to appear in Avengers 3, and possibly Guardian's of the Galaxy out August 1st. Thanks to Latino Review for the Scoop!

Earlier this afternoon my wife texted me a picture of the enormous box sitting in our kitchen and I've been jazzed ever since. Heck, I've been singing the Castle Grayskull song all week now to help myself pass the time. Before I even open the box, I have to say that while there have been plenty of ups and downs on the journey from having Castle Grayskull exist simply as a sketch on paper to existing as an actual product delivered to my door, I think there are some folks that need to be commended. First, regardless of all other issues I don't think anyone can say that Scott Neitlich ("ToyGuru") and the Fo
Today I'm reviewing what might be one of the coolest Batman figures ever made: Dark Rider Batman. Yes, it is Batman on a horse. A horse as black as midnight with glowing red eyes. And Batman? He's ready to ride into action wearing a cavalry type outfit while armed with a bronze sword and a whip. While you may have seen Batman riding a horse in a variety of places, the image that typically comes to mind is this excellent scene from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns . Someone needs to release that as an action figure as soon as humanly possible! Anyways, thanks to Kenner and their Legends of Batman toyline, we at least have this super cool version of horse-riding Batman. Dark Rider Batman was released as a deluxe boxed item in 1994 as part of the first series of figures and always intrigued me. Finally I managed to track one down, and let me say, I'm not disappointed in the least. If I could go back in time and change one thing from my past, it would b
