Thundercats are on the move, Thundercats are loose

Feel the magic, hear the roar, Thundercats are loose.

I just love that theme song. I regret never owning any of the toys, especially the Sword of Omens. Had the Blazing Sword from Voltron, though, which was nice.

At least until my brother took it apart and wrecked it. Asshole.

Masters of the Universe's Man-E-Faces has...many faces.

Well, I mean, three is many faces to have. Three is the number. Four is too much and two is not enough unless it's followed by a third. And five is right out*. I actually had a Man-E-Faces when I was a kid. It was a pretty good toy and the face switching never got old. Need a Wolverine-like berserker? Covered. Need a robot to team up with your Autobots or plot with the Decepticons? Done. The human face would probably work well with superhero action figures as either a hero or villain from the future. Like many of my childhood toys, I have not one clue about what ever became of it.

*I'd like to take this moment to apologize to Monty Python and the entire fandom for that butchering of a classic scene from Holy Grail.

Have I already posted the intro to the classic 90s X-Men cartoon? Yeah, probably

Doesn't mean that I won't keep doing it!

New name, same low-quality posts

So yeah, I decided to rename Giant-Size Nerd-Thing! to Nerd Trash for a number of reasons:

1. Felt like it. What can I say? I'm whimsical.
2. Giant-Size Nerd-Thing! is a bit much to type.

In addition, I used my nascent MS Paint skills to create a header. Check out that sweet ass font, yo. Here it is, in case you're reading this post after I've undoubtedly changed the header a dozen times in the near future.

I do plan on changing the header from time to time, but it won't be on like a monthly basis or anything and it'll be more of a rotation, so previous ones will be revisited.

I'm also going to be cleaning up the blogrolls, adding new blogs and eliminating others. Theme-wise, I'm going for old cartoons, comics, movies, toys, etc. In light of that, I'll probably be purging posts that are no longer relevant.

Fun times ahead!

Meet Fallon Grey, Marvel's new Blade the vampire slayer.

And I like this promo image a lot.

(via CBR)
The new Blade is a high school girl named Fallon Grey who also happens to be the daughter of original Blade. You know, the one Wesley Snipes played in three movies? He's in the series too, but I'm assuming that from the above picture, she's probably going to get more of the attention. Comic Book Resources has an interview with Tim Seeley, the writer of the new series. Worth reading.
