She’s going to be one of the central characters for The Force Awakens, and we know so little about her. Nevertheless, Hasbro has made a highly details, highly articulated 6-inch action figure of Rey for the Black Series. But Hasbro isn’t alone in the mid-scale deluxe figure market as Disney’s Elite Series also has a Rey. Which is better? Look below and decide for yourself as we dive into a photo review for both figures.

The 6-inch Black Series Rey comes with the ever lovable BB-8, and let’s face it, everyone wants BB. But Rey’s not bad looking either if you take your time and hunt down a figure with a good paint.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

The 602 Club: Episode 54 covers the James Bond film Skyfall. Rather than just covering movie aspect by aspect, they cherry pick some excellent topics for discussion that explore the character of Bond, how they developed and used him in the film, and some of the themes. Terrific episode for Bond fans with top notch discussion, superb audio quality and a great flow. Very professional.

Bombad Radio: BNN for 11.9.2015 covers the news for video games, movies, television and more. They talk about Star Wars, Warcraft, Star Trek, and Age of Empires. Good episode with your quick burst of weekly news.

Bombad Radio: Episode 212 is a collection of interviews Jeremiah did at Salt Lake Comic Con including all three Animaniacs, Dee Bradley Baker, Manu Bennett, Vic Mignogna, Christopher Gorham, and John Eaves. Great bunch of interviews with a wide variety of guests. Fun episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Book News

  • Paul S. Kemp posted a teaser from what is most likely A Conversation in Blood.

Nix nonchalantly drew a dagger to pair with his sword. “Things do often take a turn, I’ve found. Seems to be my luck. But listen, I can’t just teach lessons to all three of you. This goes the way it looks and I’ll probably have to kill two of you. You clear on that? You want to talk amongst yourselves a moment and decide who’ll die?”

“Listen to this one,” said the big one to moon face.

“He’s got big balls, I’ll give him that,” said moon face.

“Bigger than your pukey friend here, to that I can attest. Firsthand, as it were.” Nix shrugged. “I guess I need to start working on my explanation to the Guard for the two or three bodies they’ll soon find. I’ll start with something like: They were bunghole slubbers, Goodsir, and no one will miss them, and they got what was coming after a fair warning.”

The big one smirked and the two started down the steps of the porch, spacing themselves to come at Nix from different angles, while the puker eased forward from behind.
