There have been many video games where you can play as tiger, shark, cat, even a turtle, and now a goat. The Goat Simulator game has been available for a couple of month’s now, but now it’s a FREE download. The Goat Simulator is IGN’s Free Game of Month. You play a goat and get points by tearing-up a rural town. The Goat Simulator is available for iPhone, iPad and iTouch.
If you’re a comic book reader veteran, then you’re probably familiar with the usual once-a-year mega cross-over event like in the DC and Marvel Universe. Well, this summer 2015, Titan Comics will mix-it up with 4 Doctors and 3 companions meeting up in this 5-issue mini-series. Doctor Who: Four Doctors #1 (1-5) follows the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors and their companions on a mission against an unknown foe. The epic crossover-event is written by Paul Cornell (Wolverine) and illustrated by Neil Edwards
Adult collectors familiar with the 1970s/80s era Jumbo Machinder toys and, of course Star Wars get a East meets West collaboration thanks to Super7 and Funko. This is the Super Shogun Boba Fett – Empire Version. First off, the box packaging looks awesome with the Japanese kanji and logos. The figure stands 24″ tall with rotating wheels on the feet, spring-loaded firing rocket from jetpack and wrist.
We’ve been a little behind editing many videos from various events we’ve attended this summer. Here’s a quick recap of the SF Anime Festival & Cosplay in Japantown that took place on July 18, 2015. The Ramen crew was there to see all the cosplay fun and meet-up with special cosplay guest Reika from Japan.
A few months back I reviewed the first issue of Des Taylor’s new Scarlett Couture 4-issue mini-series, and today, the last issue with two variant covers drops today at your local comic book store racks.
“Scarlett and Trent are imprisoned by the villainous Dante Ramon when they learn of the impending destruction of Las Vegas. With less than an hour to stop the devastation, Scarlett and her team must do everything they can to save hundreds of thousands of lives, and finally uncover the evil mastermind behind it all.”
Usually when it’s a comic book tie-in with popular TV program, the comic book usually sucks. The art is not up to par and the stories and world-building does not tie-in enough to the TV show, there is a disconnect of sorts. But over the past year, I have the pleasure of reading the various Doctor Who releases by Titan Comics and it’s been a blast. Each creative team on the books have done a fine job building upon the Doctor Who universe and mythos. Marvel and DC comics may dominate the comic-book racks, but if you’re looking for something different and something British, then look for these Titan Comics’ Doctor Who books dropping Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at your local comic book store.
If collecting the Funko/Super 7 ReAction retro-sytle 3.75″ action figure line isn’t your thing, then try Funko’s Legacy line of 6″ figures that has more points articulation, details and accessories. Funko’s Legacy over the past years have featured Magic The Gathering and Game of Thrones action figures, now the Legacy line-up expands to Joss Whedon’s Firefly series, The Rocketeer, The Book of Life and Fantastic Mr. Fox action figures.
If you’re fan of Disney cartoon series Miles from Tomorrowland, then you might want to pick-up this nifty spacecraft/playset featuring lights, sounds, and 3 separate spacecraft that can combine into one bigger craft. The Stellosphere does require 6 AAA batteries that are not included.
I remember being a big fan when Cassandra Cain took over as the role of Batgirl and I bought every issue at the comic book store, but of course during the eventual run, it got weird and basically a bad storyline cancelled the series. Now my Batgirl interest has peaked with curiosity with new an new artist Mingjue Helen Chen coming into the DC fold. The Academy of Art graduate whose worked on projects like Wreck-It Ralp and Big Hero 6 is now bringing her own unique digital anime-cartoon style to Gotham Academy #7 and Batgirl Annual #3.
This year Hasbro kicked-off it’s new theme for their Transformers toy line-up, calling it the Combiner Wars. It’s an homage to the G1 combiner toys and most fans have been waiting for Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Devastator. The 6 Constructicons: Scrapper, Hook, Bonecrusher, Long Haul, Mixmaster and Scavenger have all-new molds, but retain their G1-look. As the Constructicons combine into the Devastator, it now stands a behemoth 18-inches tall.
NYC and the musical genre of hip-hop are synonymous and this summer 2015, Stussy celebrates the iconic NYC rap group A Tribe Called Quest (ATCQ). ATCQ music heavily influenced Stussy’s work in the late ’80s and early ’90s, and this Stussy capsule collection showcases it.
If you’re on a LEGO budget like me, then I find myself liking this LEGO DC Comics The Batboat Harbor Pursuit 76034. Recently I wanted to get some type of LEGO Age of Ultron product, so I settled for The Hulk Buster Smash 76031, which to me had all the mini-figs I wanted. The Batboat is an okay build, but I like 3 minifigs in this set: Batman, Robin and Deathstroke.
As we all know, nobody can attend every panel at SDCC. So, thanks to YouTube channel Flicks and the City, you can watch all the star-studded panels on your smartphone, desktop or SMART LCD. Now let’s begin:
With the Ant-Man film a week away, Marvel is showcasing some SDCC Exclusives to hype the film. This is Marvel’s Ant-Man 0.75-inch Mini Action Figure which is about a size of a US quarter. The action figure does not have any articulation, but a nice detailed paint job and it comes in a neat cigarette box packaging.
This SDCC Exclusive will retail around $10.00USD.

Every time I hit Toys’R’Us I find KRE-O toys on the clearance line, so what’s up with all these SDCC Exclusives? Well, KRE-O last year’s Class of 1984 did very well and minifigs are just too cute! For this year’s SDCC 2015, KRE-O is back with a new line-up of G1 Transformers in this specially enclosed High School Yearbook looking box with 30 KREON minifigs.
KRE-O toys are still around? You can barely find them on the Toys’R’Us shelves, but here’s an SDCC 2015 Exclusive, the G.I. Joe Construction Commandos Set which is basically Sgt. Slaughter and his Marauders squad and tank versus Destro and his Iron Grenadiers team. The set comes with very cool packaging, a VHS cassette tape-like box, along with 12 KREO minifigs and pieces to build the Triple-T tank.
