The man who most consider to be the best actor in Hollywood is retiring. Daniel-Day Lewis who has won a slew of Oscars for films such as: My Two Left Feet, There Will Be Blood, and Lincoln, as well been nominated for just about every role he has ever portrayed is calling it quits at the age of 60. Lewis is best known for being the greatest method actor of all time due to his commitment to live as his characters before, and during filming.

Lewis took home his Last Oscar for portraying Lincoln in 2012, but has one more chance to claim another little golden man when his final film: Phantom Thread directed by: Paul Thomas Anderson hits theaters this Christmas. As sad as this news is for film fans, it is understandable considering the amount of time and effort Lewis puts into his portrayals.

Yes, after one year of preorders, waiting, concepts and preproduction pieces, constant changes, small victories, crushing defeats, and sheer anticipation, Castle Grayskull has finally arrived to my home. 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.

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?
