The Spirit Movie Figure

December 14, 2008

The Spirit DC Direct 13 Inch Deluxe Collector Action Figure

Adapted from the legendary comic strip,WILL EISNER’S THE SPIRIT is a classic action-adventure-romance told by genre-twister Frank Miller (creator of 300 and SIN CITY.) It is the story of a former rookie cop who returns mysteriously from the dead as the SPIRIT (Gabriel Macht) to fight crime from the shadows of Central City. His arch-enemy, the OCTOPUS (Samuel L. Jackson) has a different mission: he’s going to wipe out Spirit’s beloved city as he pursues his own version of immortality. The Spirit tracks this cold-hearted killer from Central City’s rundown warehouses, to the damp catacombs, to the windswept waterfront � all the while facing a bevy of beautiful women who either want to seduce, love or kill our masked crusader.

This 1:6 scale figure is clothed in an authentically detailed film outfit including suit, overcoat, hat and non-removable mask. This piece will make a great addition to your collection. Just click the image below to get a closer look.

Settlers of Catan

December 14, 2008

Having worked in a toy/gaming store for many years, I always get customers wandering in and asking:

What good board game do you recommend for our family to play?

There is only one answer: …. THE SETTLERS OF CATAN

Settlers of Catan Board Game

The Settlers of Catan is an innovative board game that propels players into a world of development and exploration. Catan is a great game for friends and family, from ages 12 and up.

The entire game board is composed of hexagonal pieces, from which players construct an island of terrain surrounded by a sea and ports. Each terrain piece pictures a different type of resource. Players accumulate resources to build roads, settlements, or cities to expand their control. They gain victory points through the development of a colony; the first person to reach 10 victory points wins. However, there is a wonderful little crimp in game play that adds a lot of excitement and drama—the “robber” game piece. The robber sneaks into play whenever a 7 is rolled on the dice. He can be moved to any spot on the board, stopping the production of all resources on the piece he touches until moved by the roll of another 7.

One distinct element of The Settlers of Catan is the game board. Because the terrain is randomly arranged, Catan is a new game every time it’s played. This forces players to strategize differently for each game with the lay of the land and resources. Another ingenious feature to this game is the players’ ability to trade resources with one another. Not only are they actively involved in the game even when it’s not their turn, but it’s also a great way to encourage players to focus on finding creative ways to build, rather than destroy. Through trade, players find a way to work together, taking advantage of available resources while still playing to their own advantage. Then, there’s the robber. With a single roll of the dice, he can inject the power to destroy alliances or create new bonds between players.

The Settlers of Catan is a great game for either the avid board game enthusiast or the casual player looking to try something new. With multiple rounds of game play possible, players will find themselves returning to it again and again for hours of entertainment. Play is limited to a maximum of four players, but The Settlers of Catan 5-6 player Expansion Pack is a great way to increase the group’s fun.

Players: 3-4 (ages 12+)
Playing Time: 60 minutes

This board game is not available at Toys R Us or Wal-mart.  It is only available from specialty stores.  You can purchase this game at: www.cmdstore.com.


Bakugan Game

December 13, 2008

What do I like to do with my spare time?

Answer: Create video game box covers! Here is my latest creation of the Bakugan Video Game on the Nintendo Wii platform. It’s pretty amateur…but I tried my best….now if only Nintendo really puts out this game…that would be cool.

Lego Batman: The Videogame

December 13, 2008

Batman LegoOne of the most demanded products this Christmas holiday season is Lego Batman products. I remember ordering this product line from Lego Canada and dreading the fact that I over-ordered. The stuff was not moving. Eventually this product was liquidated last Christmas by Lego Canada to mass merchandise stores like: Winners (called Marshall’s in the USA). While this product was collecting a lot of dust sitting on our store shelf, I wondered if we would ever sell this stuff. The Movie was great…the product is pretty cool…why was it not selling? They made too much.

Well, this product has come to life this holiday season with the latest release of the Lego Batman Video Game by TT Games. The success of the video game has spurred demand for this Lego toy and now we have almost completely sold out. Also, the DVD release of The Dark Knight (Batman) Movie certainly helped fuel this product disappearing off our store shelf. This product cannot be restocked…it has been discontinued.

My favorite toy from that Lego Batman line:

Bakugan Battle – Preyas vs. UFC Chuck Liddell

December 12, 2008

Bakugan vs Chuck Liddell

Preyas Bakugan is only under 2 inches tall but can unleash a 600 G attack against the Iceman, Chuck Liddell.

Who would win this fight? Chuck is 6 feet 2 inches of pure muscle but I don’t know if he stands a chance.

Who do you think will win this match-up? Take the poll…
