TV Round-Up

It’s been fairly quiet over here on the Nerdgazzum blog.  I broke the silence over on my personal one where I have come to accept that I am suffering from depression and that’s put a bit of a stop on most things Nerdgazzum.  All of THAT noise will be over on my blog as this isn’t the place and  I wanted to break the silence on this blog by discussing what’s happening on TV at the moment.

First up, the return of The Flash.  Great mid-season premiere.  Kinda tugs at the heartstrings what with Patty and Barry and Joe and Wally but still a gripping watch.  The best bit by far had to be the credits scene with [su_spoiler title=”Spoiler!” style=”fancy”]Eobard Thawne as the Reverse Flash who has somehow returned and is rather confused…[/su_spoiler]

Next, we have Arrow and things are getting very interesting.   We have Damien Darhk and [su_spoiler title=”Spoiler!” style=”fancy”]his family who we assumed knew nothing of his activities and it turns out his wife is fully in the know and, possibly, in ordering him…[/su_spoiler] Then there’s the question of who is in the grave? Seeing as [su_spoiler title=”Spoiler!” style=”fancy”]it’s not Felicity who I think will go on to become Oracle as she’s lost the use of her legs. I reckon it’s either Oliver’s son or the boy’s mother. Felicity wasn’t wearing the engagement ring when Oliver got back into the car and see seemed mighty pissed but Oliver wasn’t THAT broken up for it to be any of the team. Perhaps, because Eobard Thawne has returned at the end of Flash, Thawne causes havoc in Star City to weaken the fledgling “Justice League”…[/su_spoiler]

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow premiered and all I can say is “WOW”.  Another great ensemble made up of familiar faces with our new acquaintance, Rip Hunter.  Action packed and gripping throughout, the episode also tugged at heart strings at a couple of different points.  I can’t wait to see where they go with this and how the other shows tie in going forward because they will, especially after [su_spoiler title=”Spoiler!” style=”fancy”]recognising Gideon’s voice who is then named later on as the AI onboard the Waverider which, as we should all know by now, was created by Barry Allen.[/su_spoiler]

It took me a while to warm to Supergirl.  I felt it was the weakest in the CW lineup but she seems to be coming into her own.  The incessant references and name-dropping alluding to her cousin, Clark, got rather boring and annoying.  But towards the mid-season break it really picked up.  Maxwell Lord and his dark plan drawing us in with great interest and, of course the reveal as to who Hank actually is.  The latest episode, “Strange Visitor From Another Planet” was incredibly strong and CW seem intent at tugging at our heart strings across all of their shows at the moment This episode was a reminder of some of the fantastic storylines in Justice League Unlimited where [su_spoiler title=”Spoiler!” style=”fancy”]we see the fate of the Martians and J’onn J’onzz (Hank) becoming the last son of Mars. The White Martians were really well done and a far better depiction compared to the animated iteration.[/su_spoiler] and then the show closes with Supergirl saving a bus [su_spoiler title=”Spoiler!” style=”fancy”]but as we know, it can’t be her as she’s sat eating ice cream watching the news as it’s happening. Looks like Maxwell Lord has created a Bizarro Supergirl which we kinda guessed when Hank infiltrated room 52…[/su_spoiler]

As stressful as having such a full TV calendar due to these fantastic shows starting back up, new shows announced and others returning soon (The Walking Dead) is,  I am still in awe that we are now in a world that accepts these bizarre storylines and characters as mainstream content and no longer a discussion kept at the back of class or away from the popular folk’s ears.  To see stuff from the comics and animated series make it to live-action and not on the “big screen” is truly amazing.   It’s an awesome time to be a geek.

Gotham – The TV Show We Do Not Need Nor Deserve

So, anyone that knows me knows I LOVE Batman and the DC Universe and very rarely do I have a negative thing to say about anything Batman related.  Aside from my major disappointment with Arkham Knight and the abominations that were the Schumacher flicks I have nothing but love for the variety of story arcs and depictions of my beloved childhood hero.  Yet I find myself struggling with Gotham.  I tried so hard to like it.  I WANTED to like it but the spoon-feeding of references and cheesiness is reminiscent of the classic TV show and that ship sailed decades ago.

I initially envisioned a Gotham that was dark, gritty and needed cleaning up.  Season 1 had me thinking that was the case and I defended the show as I so desperately wanted it to be what I thought it would become.  But then the villains started happening.  A new villain every episode with every single hint of who they are spelt out in blazing neon.  Unlike DC’s other efforts over on CW where Flash and Arrow intelligently give newcomers a treat yet don’t alienate the diehard fans with boring references and big arrows pointing at who this newcomer on screen is.

I thought this show would centre on Jim Gordon and his battle to clean up Gotham without getting too dirty himself.  I pictured a young, grieving Bruce Wayne trying to find his way in life and finding a means to overcome the loss and emptiness the demise of his parents brings him.  I pictured a gritty CSI Gotham with subtle references and indications of villains’ origins through well written stories and cameos.  I pictured a tightly woven pre-Batman world that would hold gems for fans and newcomers alike.

I was wrong.  I still watch it.  I don’t know why.  Perhaps I cling to the hope a new writing team and/or show runner comes in as the offscreen Jim Gordon to clean this mess up.  Every time a new villain casting is announce I die a little inside and the calamity grows.  I really enjoyed the Court of Owls run in the comics and, season 2 brought us a link to that arc and I am displeased with how it has played thus far.  The Order of St Dumas came into play, Edward Nygma’s license plate is “RIDDLR”, Penguin’s bizarre and annoying mother…so many let downs that I lose respect for villains I respected and loved in the comics and other media.

Season 1 was the closest we got to what I expected; the (short-lived) turf wars between Falcone and Maroni (and the wretched Fish Mooney that was not required at all).  It was all down hill from there.   Just look at little Bruce, not at all consumed by his parents’ death as he should be.  This is the defining moment in this child’s life and he’s acting more like what a young Alan Sugar would as opposed to the heir to millions who was face to face with his parents’ killer and, who was technically responsible for their death.

The freaks in masks shouldn’t appear until Batman does – the age old argument, is Batman friend or foe and do we need him?  If Batman wasn’t around, would the lunatics have come out of the woodwork?

I watch Flash and Arrow and every time Cisco drops a name reference or every time you see the likes of a pilot’s jacket with the name ‘JORDAN’ with no major focus or reference to it I get giddy and the fanboy gets excited.  I watch Gotham where everything is spoon-fed to the viewer and I yawn and feel no excitement for the next episode.  Perhaps we did need a Gotham TV series.  Just not right now.

Nerdful Things 11/07/15

Let’s start this week’s Nerdful Things with the news of the Mystery Funko POP!  The option to buy a random Funko POP! from my in stock items (unless they sell out in which case I will order more random POP!s in) has been added to the store.  I’m still looking at other mystery box options (other manufacturers as well as bigger boxes packed with goodies).   As a bonus, the mystery box is being offered at a discounted price (cheaper than the cost of a regular POP!) for the first month.

Now, at this point I had intended on adding the other store additions here.  I had left it for today to update but yesterday a bombshell hit my e-mail.  A short and sweet e-mail with details of the SDCC Funko POP! pre-orders so I dropped everything.  After a rush to break the news I managed to get the store updated and also hit up eBay.  It’s taken a while in between my internet completely screwing up (I’ve rebooted my router countless times over the last 24 hours) as well as handling all the e-mails, messages and looking after 3 kids.  Considering my current state of health I haven’t done too bad!

Anyhoo, enough about my woes!  This week’s Nerdful things has now been hijacked by SDCC and I will to a bumper edition next week to cover what I was going to do originally!

You can view/pre-order the SDCC POP!s here.

I’ve submitted my figures to the distributor and hope to fulfill each and every order.  In the event I can’t, full/partial refunds (where applicable) will be issued.  Last year was less of a rush, considering I’d only been in operation for about 3 months.  More warning was given regarding the available items but it came with the drawback that items were staggered from August to November and saw some MAJOR delays and turned into some cancellations.  This year has seen a whirlwind tear through but the plus side is that the items are scheduled to drop much, much sooner.  Most are scheduled for later this month with a couple in August and one in September/October.  Details of estimated dates are on each product page.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the various announcements and news coming from San Diego and if you’re actually there or have been…well. I’m sure you’re feeling victorious after some epic hauls and signings etc!

Nerdful Things 04/07/15

Welcome to this week’s Nerdful Things!  I’m going to break stride for a sec and congratulate the winner of the 1,000 likes competition for the awesome Play Arts Kai Harley Quinn Variant.   So, congratulations goes to Shona aka Ellie Jayden!  It feels good to offer up some awesomeness but especially when the person shows true appreciation – her Twitter reaction says it all.  As disappointed as I was with the small number of entries, I am glad I had people put some effort in as a prize like this should go to someone who makes an effort and not just a lazy like, share and that’s it.  Below is the winning entry:

harleyyyy[1]
I really want that Joker doll…

Before I delve into some of the awesomeness available, I also wanted to announce the integration of a new scheme on the store: certain pre-order items will have discounts applied within a certain window of time before they revert to the regular price.  To qualify for the discount, all you have to do is order within that time – the price will show as discounted on the respective product page/in your cart/at checkout.  Simple.  Bear in mind that this is not on ALL pre-orders and the window of time may be a few days to a week or two so if you want to save a little bit of cash then get in there quick!

So, that being said, here is the first (and only item at the time of writing this) item available at a discounted price.  This GITD Vaultboy from the newly announce Fallout series from Funko!  This guy has clearly been hanging out with The Glowing One.  Or he’s been wandering around the Wasteland without the correct gear and has a stupidly high RAD reading.

Next up, we have the American Horror Story: Freakshow POP!s.   I posted a RUSH ORDER towards the end of last week and a lot of the items are (thankfully) still available to order in, including this series.  Elsa Mars & Ma Petite seem especially popular (4 times more than any of the others)!  Also available are: Bette & Dot (Tattler Twins), Pepper & Twisty The Clown.

How awesome are these newly announced Doctor Who POP!s?

4th Doctor with Jelly Beans

11th Doctor with Fez & Mop

12th Doctor with Spoon

 

And finally, here is the last of my picks – the Star Wars Jawa re-release!

That’s just a taster of some of the goodies added this week.  For more, check the store homepage.

RUSH ORDER 24/06/15 – DEADLINE: 26/06/15

Nerdful Things 05/06/15

I’m going to try and mix it up for this weeks iteration of Nerdful Things.  Last week was predominantly DC products!  Last week saw a huge interest in the Hello Kitty DC plush dolls…especially from international buyers!

xmez75290_1[1]

Now the first item isn’t a new addition but it’s had quite a hefty price drop so, in true ICYMI style, here is the awesome pink teddy bear from Breaking Bad.

Next, we have a range of new Adventure Time and Disney Funko POP! Keychains and Tins!

Now, I did try, but back onto Batman (as I’ve been piecing this post together – I am writing this section on 1 June – I had this drop into my inbox), this fantastic Jim Lee pencil art figure for SDCC 2015 is available to pre-order!

Bethesda

On top of the glorious Fallout 4 announcement from Bethesda, Funko announced the Fallout and Elder Scrolls POP! ranges.  I won’t go into detail here as I have recently put up a separate post about it here.

lego-dimensions-release-date-september-29-2015-xbox-360-ps3-ps4-xbox-one-wii-u1[1]

Now, this news I was super excited about – a supplier contacted me in regards to LEGO Dimensions and I am proud to be able to bring you the various Starter Packs and add-ons available for pre-order.  As a pre-order bonus, the Starter Packs have £5 off until midnight 28 September.

1377099_597196883676109_2106098529_n[1]

In follow up to the LEGO Dimensions news, I have also sourced a supplier that can provide LEGO sets so keep your eyes peeled for more sets and other LEGO related items here.

x_mcf14529[1]

Similar to LEGO, I have also added the Walking Dead Construction sets for pre-order.  Set for release later this month, these sets allow you to recreate some of your favourite scenes from the smash TV show such as the prison and the Governor’s room.

x_hot902430[1]

Last but not least, the Avengers: Age of Ultron Cosbaby range has been added.  Pictured above is the set which includes an exclusive unmasked Tony Stark figure.  The other figures are available to purchase separately.

There have been a lot of other additions this week including some new Disney Funko POP!s so head on over to the store and have a look!

Lego Dimensions

Good morning (or whatever part of the day it is that you’re reading this)!

I had an e-mail towards the end of last week and decided to share some awesome news.  A distributor has reached out to me to offer me the opportunity of jumping on the “toys to life” craze.  And, I must admit, Skylanders has never really taken me.  Disney Infinity was tempting but the different versions etc. seems confusing for the consumer and when I heard of Dimensions, I was keen for me personally as I love Lego and the possibilities that it may offer really captured my imagination (tie that in with the announcement of Lego releasing a game akin to Minecraft and it’s a case of ‘mind = blown’).

Below are details taken from the Lego Dimensions fact sheet that I have been supplied and I will be looking to add the various sets to the store very soon.  In the meantime, check out the deets below!

The LEGO® Toy Pad and the videogame found in the initial Starter Pack will offer continued compatibility with future Expansion Packs for years to come.  Like any LEGO building set, LEGO Dimensions is a system of play that offers continued compatibility – everything bought today or expanded with tomorrow will continue to work.

There is an ancient planet at the centre of the LEGO® Multiverse inhabited by an evil mastermind, Lord Vortech.  It is said that he who controls the Foundational Elements that this planet is built upon, controls all of the Multiverse.  Lord Vortech has vowed to be that ruler, summoning characters from a variety of LEGO worlds to help him find these building bricks of LEGO® civilization.  Some have agreed.  Others have rebelled.  And only the combined powers of the greatest LEGO® heroes can stop him.

When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various LEGO worlds, different characters from DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings™ and The LEGO® Movie are swept away.   To save their friends, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle bravely jump into the vortex.  As they journey to locations beyond their wildest imaginations in search of their friends, they soon realize that Lord Vortech is summoning villains from across different LEGO® worlds to help him gain control.

Nerdful Things: SDCC 2015 DST Previews

Can you believe it?  It’s almost that time again!  SDCC 2014 ushered in  a smorgasbord of awesome products and announcements (remember the leaked Batman V Superman trailer?).  San Diego Comic Con has evolved into an unstoppable monster and is any merchandise manufacturer’s wet dream.  In fact, SDCC has become so big, its dates should form an international holiday weekend!

What’s funny is, when I saw some of the Diamond Select announcements for this years SDCC, I thought to myself “Hmmm, they’re quite pre-emptive, it’s too soon”.  That was last week.  Then I realised, its only a few weeks away!  Where has this year gone?

I figured, on the run up to the main event, I would share some of my favourite announcements in terms of product lines and highlight some of the SDCC 2015 exclusives.

Here are my picks thus far:

  1. DC Comics BlueLine Edition Action Figure Batman by Jim Lee SDCC 2015 Exclusive

    Legendary comics artist Jim Lee has brought his extraordinary vision of Batman to epic stories including BATMAN: HUSH and BATMAN: FOR TOMORROW. Now, that vision of the Dark Knight is brought to life once more in the new DC COMICS BLUELINE EDITION—BATMAN BY JIM LEE ACTION FIGURE.Based on designs by Jim Lee, this spectacular action figure captures the feel of the artwork that appears on the packaging. Limited Edition!

    Note: There is also an extremely limited version of the DC Comics Blueline Edition Batman Exclusive Action Figure, which include a signed unique original sketch by Jim Lee. Limited to 150 pieces.

Jim Lee’s artwork has always fascinated me and hearing some of his stories on Fatman on Batman was an eye opener.  This is a piece I want for myself and I’ve already had a few folks pre-order him!

163950_713885_11[1]2.   Femme Fatales Harley B&W PVC Statue

A Diamond Select Toys Release! DST is celebrating the Femme Fatales of Batman: The Animated Series with a line of statues, and Comic-Con kicks the line off with an exclusive variant version of Harley Quinn! Based on her appearance in the episode “Almost Got ’Im,” this statue captures the Joker’s partner-in-crime defacing the Bat-signal in two of her favorite colors: black and white! This 9-inch black-and-white statue is crafted from PVC plastic, and comes packaged in a full-color window box. Sculpted by Steve Varner Studios. Limited to only 4,000 pieces!

Everyone loves Harley and the B&W statues are a fantastic range so this is an awesome addition to the line-up.  I’m hoping to have access to this item but no details as of yet – stay tuned!

163950_713892_18[1]

  1.   Kevin Smith Vinimate Vinyl Figure – SDCC 2015 EDITION

A Diamond Select Toys release! It’s an all-new line of vinyl figures from DST! Vinimates, the first-ever Minimates-style vinyl figures based on pop-culture icons, are making their debut at Comic-Con, and who better to get Vinimated first than comic book icon Kevin Smith? A comic writer, comic-shop owner and unabashed geek, Kevin Smith will be the first static, 4-inch Vinimate in the “Podcast Pals” series of Vinimates, featuring some of the biggest celebrities SmodCo has to offer. Holding a microphone and wearing his trademark “Puck U” hockey jersey, Kevin comes packaged in a full-color window box. The Vinimates phenomenon starts here! Limited to only 2,000 pieces!

Again, no details on whether I will have access to this or not but this is definitely on my personal wishlist.  After all, as most folks know, it’s thanks to this guy that I started Nerdgazzum in the first place [see ‘Thank You Mr Kevin Smith‘]!

Stay tuned for further updates!

1,000 Likes Competition – The 411

[powr-countdown-timer label=”Enter a Label”]

Hello again folks!

After a lot of thought and consideration, I toyed with a number of ideas for ways in which to win this awesome Play Arts Kai Harley Quinn figure.

I thought of doing a Bonus Ball draw based on an upcoming Lotto draw – pay £1 per number.  Good, randomised way of doing it but it limits the competition to a maximum of 49 folks.  Plus, it’s not really a fitting way of putting this fantastic piece up for grabs!

The typical competition apps that are out there suck, to be fair.  It’s all well and good getting folks to like and share something – I mean, how may times have you hit like just for the sake of it and never gone back to the page or whatever again?

And, thanks to a mini brain-storming session some other ideas milling about in this floundering mind rose to the surface triumphant!

So, it seems only right that this lovable rogue receives your love to decide the ultimate winner.  It’s time to get your creative caps on and show how much you love her!

Entries can include any form of creativity – a drawing, a poem, short story, vlog, song, love letter (don’t creep us out too much)…anything that you feel conveys how badly you want this figure in a non creepy, pure fun kinda way.  Entries have to be unique (no Google images or similar means of cheating) – you have to personalise your work to show that it wasn’t ripped off of someone else so your name needs to be clearly on any written/drawn works as well as the hashtag #Nerdgazzum.  Any video pieces should be pretty obvious that you are who you are.  Any audio sent in needs to have your name mentioned either at the start or the end of your piece.

I know that sounds like a lot of work, but Harley Quinn doesn’t just give herself to anyone, puddin’.

The competition is open as soon as this post has been published and closes at midnight on June 30th so you have an entire month to hone your craft.

Eligible entries will then be assigned an entry number (any ineligible entries will be rejected).  After the cut-off date the entry numbers will be put into random.org to decide the winner!

Any written or drawn entries can be sent in via the Facebook Page, Instagram or Twitter.

Audio/video submissions can be done via Youtube or any other audio/video site and send the link and details of your entry in a message on either the Facebook Page or Twitter.

The competition is open to all locations however, if an entrant outside of the UK wins, they will be liable for postage costs at the rate of International Signed For via Royal Mail.

Good luck, everyone!  I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!!
