Transformers BotBots Cheero review

If there's one thing Americans love, it's appropriating the trappings of foreign cultures while still hating the actual people behind them. Asian restaurants? The most popular ethnic cuisine in 24 states. Asian people? Victims of hate crimes. Indian food? The new hotness. Indian people? "Apu." So wherever the Transformers BotBots mall is, it's no surprise Los Deliciosos could call it home. Less likely that the folks who created that food would be warmly welcomed, though.

The first Iron Giant

Today we reviewed the Mondo Mecha Iron Giant. Although the movie is ultimately based on a book, there was a musical in between the two. Originally just a concept album (which included John Lee Hooker and Nina Simone, blues artists so major that you've heard of them), the musical was eventually turned into a stage show, and that's what got Warner Bros. to option the story. Anyway, what you may not have known is that Pete Townshend commissioned a music video for one of the musical's songs, "A Friend is a Friend," in 1989.

The models and effects were by Asylum Ltd., so they're the first studio to make the Iron Giant, a full decade before WB would.

Well that's just gross

NECA has opened preorders for a second round of their TMNT Lootcrates, and this is how they've chosen to advertise it:

First series figures are reselling for up to $300!

So that's what we're doing? We're just advertising directly to resellers, now? The idea was probably supposed to be "fans who missed out have unfortunately had to pay this much," but it reads as "hey scalpers, wanna make a fast buck off someone else?"
