But now you can own these adorable little Vinyl figures, so honestly who cares what a fictional character thinks of them? Gimme Gimme Gimme. » 5/22/15 10:30am Friday 10:30am

This Awesome Pacific Rim Kaiju Can Carry Your Jaeger Toys To Their Doom

Otachi is basically the Batman of NECA’s Pacific Rim toy line at this point. The Kaiju beastie ranks up there with main star Gipsy Danger for variant toys, but only one comes with a feature for it to grab other mech toys and carry them up to their rapid-descent death. That’s pretty damn cool. » 5/19/15 1:20pm Tuesday 1:20pm

Stop Hating Original Science Fiction Movies Just For Having Tropes!

It never fails lately. We actually get a movie that's a new story, instead of a rehash or continuation of a venerable tale. And people immediately start piling on, pointing out all the stuff in it that's been done before. But just because something contains story elements we've seen before doesn't mean it can't be new. » 12/08/14 12:00pm 12/08/14 12:00pm

In January, you'll finally be able to own every Jaeger from Pacific Rim

Since I saw Pacific Rim, I've endeavoured to keep up with NECA's excellent series of PR Figures as they churn out Jaeger after glorious Jaeger for my shelf. It looks like that journey will come to an end (at least until Pacific Rim 2!) next year with the release of Romeo Blue and a heavily damaged Gipsy Danger. » 11/05/14 3:07am 11/05/14 3:07am

When Is It Okay (If Ever) To Fail the Bechdel Test?

Prompted by Charlie Jane Anders' discussion of the test today (as well as some of the reactions I've seen to it) I've given some thought to the Bechdel Test and whether it's ever okay for a story to fail it. There are a number of popular stories which do fail it - Pacific Rim, The Lord of the Rings, the original Star… » 6/05/14 11:22am 6/05/14 11:22am
