The new The Huntsman: Winter’s War character posters are gorgeous!


While there were parts of Snow White and the Huntsman that I could have done without, there’s no doubt that I loved every minute Charlize Theron was on screen. Theron’s Ravenna was, for me, so amazing to watch because Theron was 100% committed. A lesser actress could have slid into camp, but Charlize held on and made Ravenna a villainess I not only felt for but wanted to see more of.

Well, I’m in luck because they’ve announced the sequel. The Huntsman: Winter’s War looks more like a badass ladies story than I imagined, considering Chris Hemsworth is only 25% of the main cast. Casting powerhouse actresses like Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain along side Charlize Theron feels like a gift.

Amusingly, I’ve seen a few people looking askance at the poster of Jessica Chastain’s poster as The Warrior. Personally, I dig it. She looks like she’s ready to fight. Leather-clad (save for those gauntlets, which I am IN LOVE with), Chastain wields antler daggers, which make sense as the weapon of someone raised to fight in the forested world we saw in the last film.

Don’t even get me started on Emily Blunt as Freya. That’s a level of flawless I can’t even handle.

Basically, this is me being 100% yes about every part of this plan. Check out the character posters and official synopsis after the break.

The first sculpts of the Star Wars Fan’s Choice Black Series figures look gorgeous


fan choice

NYCC has kicked off and I’m already flipping out with the happy between the reveals of the new Black Series TFA figures (including a cranky looking Han) and the first look at the Black Series Fan’s Choice figures; Darth Revan and Sabine Wren. (They’re both being made, which thrills me. Revan was #1, but Sabine came in a strong second, so they’re making both)

Thanks to Star Wars Action News, we have updated news and images on both Darth Revan and Sabine and they’ve put a lot of work into both making Sabine look realistic and giving her a removable helmet that works with her unique hair style.

So far, I’m impressed with both of them (In other words, OMG SQUEE!)

I put more pictures after the break.

Heroic Former Hasbro PR Rep Auctioning Hero Toys For A Heroic Cause


When I first started doing this whole “geek girl on the internet” thing, Joe Moscone and I met since he was in charge of the Hasbro boys line for Hunter PR and I was covering a lot of Star Wars and Marvel toys at the time. Joe not only became a colleague but a friend and remains a friend even after he left Hunter to work elsewhere.

One of the reaons I’ve always adored Joe so much is because of his big heart. Every year, Joe raises money for Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation and every year, he gives it his all.

This year, Joe’s added a little something to the mix — he’s collected a lot of toys over the years because of his work at Hunter and he’s putting those toys up on eBay with 100% of the proceeds going to charity. If you’re a collector, or just want to help, you’re going to watch to check it out.

I put the letter Joe sent me after the break. If I’m being honest, I’ll just say this: go help however you can because Joe’s great people and because cancer sucks.

Go Grabowskis!
