A marker sketch of Rocket Raccoon

Inspired by the news that Bradley Cooper will be voicing Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy, artist Todd Nauck (Young Justice, Wildguard) decided to draw the angry little vermin:


Remember, if you want to learn more about Rocket Raccoon, we have the collected edition of his previous appearances. And if you like Nauck's artwork, check out Invincible Universe, the spin-off from the Robert Kirkman book.

You will start with a small set of cards, but by building a more effective deck throughout the game, you will be able to place stations and lay rails over the maps provided. Gain enough points from your railways and you will ultimately manage the most powerful railroads.

Star Trek Attack Wing



We played a big Star Trek game last night.  Great game, here's a picture just before I lost my Enterprise-D.

We also received the month 1 prize kit for the monthly Attack Wing Tournament.  Get your starters and ships now.  Make sure we know you purchased a starter from us and want to play in the 1st event to be held Saturday the 14th.  

Walking Dead Mystery Minis

Remember this past May, when we told you about the Walking Dead blind-boxes?


Well they're available starting today, and we've got several cases of them! Hurry in and try your luck at getting some of the rarer figures, like the 1:144 zombie prison guard! There are 10 characters and six variants available:

  • RV Zombie
  • Little Girl Zombie
  • Merle Dixon
  • Bicycle Zombie
  • Tank Zombie
  • Deer Zombie
  • Well Zombie
  • Daryl Dixon
  • Riot Zombie
  • Prisoner Zombie

Wanna know what the variants are? Buy a figure and look at the back of the box. That's also where you'll see the ratio of the figures' availability - they start at 1:12 and get harder from there.

The "Tank Zombie" is on display at the register, so you can see what you're getting before you buy. These are sure to go fast, so come in soon.

Batman/Lex Luthor fan trailer

Following the news that Ben Affleck will play Batman and Bryan Cranston will play Lex Luthor, someone's made a trailer pairing them together:


Anybody still think Ben's a bad choice?

Monday, August 26, 2013

Breaking Bald

Hot on the heels of the surprising Ben Affleck news, it looks like the rumors we've been hearing for weeks are true, and Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston will be playing Lex Luthor in the Man of Steel sequel. There will probably be less impotent nerdrage against this news.

Guardians of the Galaxy movie footage

This weekend was the D23 Expo, a chance for Disney to show off all the upcoming stuff they're working on - and that included Guardians of the Galaxy. The bootlegged footage has finally made it online; watch it before it gets taken down in an hour:


And just because we know it'll get pulled in short order, here are some gifs from the video. First, we've got Chris Pratt (Parks and Rec's Andy Dwyer/Bert Macklin) as Star-Lord:


And then, worth the price of admission alone, Rocket Raccoon:


The movie looks like it's going to have a very gritty feeling, on par with the non-lens-flarey parts of the Star Trek reboot or maybe the Riddick films.

(And speaking of which, the latest rumor is that Vin Diesel is possibly going to be voicing Groot. At least, that's what he seems to be teasing now.)

COMING SOON - HeroClix Fear Itself KILL AND KEEP Event


Many of you have asked us what we are going to do with the leftover HeroClix Fear Itself boosters?
Well the answer is an old fashion KILL AND KEEP TOURNAMENT.

Have no fear (get it?) you will have plenty of warning when this event is gets scheduled.  It will probably be late October.

Full rules and date will be coming soon.

GenCon 2013


I'm headed out to GenCon (Indianapolis) this Wednesday, my first trip to the con. Look for updates from the road during the 5 days I'm there.

I will be getting as many of the con exclusives as I can. Make sure you check in the store after August 19 for all of the goodies that I come back with.  Don't pay the high eBay prices when you may be able to get the same items from us at much lower prices.

TableTop: Star Wars X-Wing



This game is usually in stock.
Beginning in September we will have a monthly Saturday tournament.

Get ready for Walking Dead Season 4


That trailer premiered at SDCC, but it wasn't the only zombie action in town that weekend: check out this story from a local paper, where they interview Max Brooks about the World War Z movie, and even put a GoPro camera on a reporter and sent her through the "Walking Dead Escape" obstacle course:


The Walking Dead Escape travels around the country - it's been in Philly before - so the next time it's in the area, you should go give it a try. You know you've always wanted to see how you'd fare in a zombie outbreak.

The 9 Worst Things Comicbooks Have Ever Done to Wolverine

From a funny list on Cracked.com:

Wolverine is proof that everyone loves Canadians, even when they're surly murderers. His only powers are always carrying knives and repeatedly coming back from things that should have killed him. That's not a superhero, that's a horror movie villain.


How many of those stories were you already familiar with? No matter how big a Wolverine fanboy you already were, we're willing to bet there was at least one you'd never seen before.

Star Trek Attack Wing Month 1 Details

Number of seats still available: 8/12

Operation Return
Shortly after the Cardassian Union joined the Dominion, the Cardassians, aided by their newfound allies, drove back the Klingons, reclaimed their space and took control of Deep Space 9. Before losing the station, the Federation Alliance had placed a field of self-replicating mines at the mouth of the Bajoran Wormhole to prevent the Dominion forces from entering the Alpha Quadrant through the Wormhole. Despite their efforts, the Dominion failed at every attempt to remove the minefield. News has reached the Federation Alliance that the Cardassians finally found a way to remove the minefield. Without it in place, the Dominion will overwhelm the Alpha Quadrant. The Federation Alliance has launched a massive attack to retake the station before this can happen.

Check out of the details for the 6 month Dominion War storyline event here

Get you pre-orders in now, this game is going to be the hottest game of the year. Remember a starter set is a required purchase to participate in the month 1 event.
