Movies & Jobs

Gearing up for tomorrow morning...first show of the day (not counting the midnight shows tonight) to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. We made a good effort to watch the series beforehand, and watched Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber yesterday, but were too busy today doing real things, and skipped ahead to Order of the Phoenix, so we're all ready to go in the morning. Its got a 95% Fresh rating over at Rotten Tomatoes right now (Order got 77%) and we are excited!
I went to the movies last week and saw Transformers 2 (19% Fresh); definitely skip that one. Despite being geared towards kids, we saw the over-sexualization of female characters, racist comic relief, and a tiny robot humping a girl's leg. Nevermind the gaping plot holes, like the fact that they walk out of the back of the National Air and Space Museum in DC into a plane graveyard in the desert, complete with mountains in the background.

Bathtub V from Keith Loutit - Video Pick of the Week

Custom P-40B Duck Fighter

Mongolion Release

The next Mongolion release fromSuper7 Store:

Ancient Spirits of Evil! HOOOOO!

Fan Favorite L'Amour Supreme's Mongolion has returned, and is paying his respect to another in a long line of horribly amazing villains of the past. Hailing from Third Earth, Mongolion the Ever-Living is cast in light blue vinyl with red, maroon, tan, black and silver sprays, reminiscent of a transforming evil mummy (Mumm-Ra) who wears the Snakes of Infinity emblem on his chest.

Mongolion will be offered for sale at $60, Saturday, July 11th, 11am Pacific at the Super7 Store.

Transform this decayed form to Mongo Lion, the Ever-Living!!!!
I missed the first release. Maybe I can snag this one and trade it, or just get this one and keep it. They sold out in minutes last time; hopefully Paul over at Ultra Pop in Louisville can hook me up. But ifyou look at the Super7 SDCC teaser poster, there are clearly 2x Mongolions at the top. Even more colorways already? Wish I was heading to San Diego later this mont…
