Russell Crowe becomes the latest celebrity to be Legoized.
Legoization (I am just making up words today) is more rare than getting on the Simpsons.
It is a poly-bagged promo mini-figure – as yet undetermined how to purchase – but looks cool.
I believe Harrison Ford is the only person to be Lego-ized twice — for Indiana Jones and Han Solo — speaking of which — the May the 4th Lego promotion this year is Han Solo in Hoth gear.
Can be picked up with orders over $75 at shop.lego.com on May 3rd/4th.

AMC’s Comic Book Men continues to be a guilty pleasure of mine – but I’d be the first to admit that the half-hour format of Season 2 is not working that well. The joy of Season 1 was the lack of polish the show had – jokes were allowed to simmer and stack up; everyone got screen time. Season 2 is ruthlessly chopped to bits – as soon as a punchline is delivered it is on to the next “scene”/segment – there is no time to see reaction.
However – it pleases me that they have renewed it for Season 3 – maybe they’ll work out how to fill the half-hour better (or return it to its former glory of 1 hour… although I doubt it). The guys are still funny; the premise is still a good one; and I look forward to seeing new and weird comic-related swag.
Press release available here.

It’s here. It’s good.
It looks like it might be the Superman movie we all have been waiting for… Cavill is going on me and Costner and Crowe might just be perfect casting. I love Snyder’s style and this could well be his best film yet.
(There is not much Clark Kent – Roving Reporter in this… and seemingly not much Lois Lane either – interesting to see how that will pan out.)

I love Mary Jane Watson Parker.
It feels like I’ve said this before… oh yes… here. I have the Adam Hughes inspired Sideshow Comiquette released a few years ago. Last week they posted this image (with video) on their development blog:
(Image at original size – see Sideshow Blog here)
It looks pretty. A J Scott Campbell companion piece!
I guess release is 6 or 9 months away – hopefully we will see it this side of Christmas!

Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) is all over twitter these days… and his latest update has Daniel Cudmore on the wall:
That’s Cudmore below Jean Luc Picard… and that means… COLOSSUS will be back on the silver screen in X5 – Days Of Future Past!
Really looking forward to this now!

Back in June of 2012 it was announced that a Phoenix Force Colossus could be voted into a Toys-R-Us exclusive Avengers vs. X-Men minimates box set. Unfortunately Colossus (and Emma Frost) didn’t make it – but both have just resurfaced at the Toy Fair 2013 in the Diamond Select Toys display:
I am still looking for an official press release but it appears both figures will be included in one of the upcoming Waves (either 50 or 51). See comingsoon.net
Ships May 2013.

The Colossonaut was previously announced and previewed (unpainted) at SDCC 2012.
But at ToyFair 2013 held in New York over the weekend – we get to see the painted version… looks pretty! The Colossonaut is packaged as an Uncanny X-Men three-pack along with Cyclops and Emma Frost.

Finally the Lego announcement I have been waiting for: http://videogames.lego.com/en-us/lego-marvel-super-heroes/about/features/
All we need now is for Colossus to be one of the 100 playable characters… fingers crossed!

I was in New York City at the start of the week on business and had enough time to stop in at Jim Hanley’s Universe – a comic book store that focuses on comics. It has a large selection of new books and a reasonable sized back issue section at the back of the store. One quirky thing about it was the main store was sorted alphabetically – so there is no stand for this weeks books – if you want All Star X-Men number 1 – you need to find the X section. It’s fine – though not sure it adds anything to the experience (especially if you are a regular to the store).
I wasn’t really looking for any specific books – but I picked up a few back issues:
- X-Men #17 (Volume ? – November 2011) “Betrayal In The Bermuda Triangle – Part Two” (50 Years Of Fantastic Four Variant)
- X-Men #42 (Volume 1 – July 1995) “Heaven Can Wait” (Colossus present on cover)
- X-Men #43 (Volume 1 – August 1995) “Falling From Grace” (Colossus present on cover)
- X-Men #45 (Volume 1 – October 1995) “The Enemy Of My Enemy…”
Anyway – it was a cool store – lots to look at and browse – old and new. Worth checking out if you find yourself in NY. It is right beside the Empire State Building.
