To gear up for X-men: Apocalypse in just one week both on the Confirmed Epic Podcast network and thegww.com are going back into the vaults to bring you another retro rewind edition. This time look back at Wolverine's last big screen solo outing in July of 2013: James Mangold's The Wolverine. You will hear from the classic epic review team of Barbecue17 and thereelbradbell as we break down the film that led to the X-men franchise towards Days of Future Past. It was a different time, X-men Origin Wolverine as well as X-men the Last Stand had arguably killed the X-men franchise at FOX! We were all young podcasters beginning to cut our teeth in the industry. Long before the breakout success of anything like Brad's work at Geeks World Wide or before Jerry built his toy review empire over at actionfigurebarbecue.com .

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?
