The XBOX achievement list has been released for Lego Marvel Super Heroes and looky looky… the “Fastball Special” is one of them! For the uninitiated this requires Colossus to throw Wolverine into battle or as Microsoft puts it: “Perform a special throwing move as Colossus on Wolverine”. Well done TT – you have knocked this […]


The biggest Comic Convention of them all is nearly over for another year; as the San Diego Comic-Con 2013 moves into its final day – the news about Comics and cult TV & Movies has been coming thick and fast. As always I look for Colossus news throughout the weekend (and it sometimes can be […]


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!

Well, despite huge frustrations with the broken online shop and getting annoyed with support, I did indeed make it to 900! In fact as you see below I am gold broke… despite being owed 2400 Gold which represents the two times I have tried to buy Avengers Iron Man and the shop failed! So when […]


It has taken a while – nearly four weeks – to rank up another century. The squad now sits at a very respectable 800 with the addtions of Ant Man, Giant Man, Punisher and Nick Fury all MAXed out; and Tuxedo Thing, Spider-Woman and Iron Patriot in progress. I tried to patiently wait for the […]
