ToyCon 2011 Day 2: Marvel Collectibles

Wow, talk about a frenzy! Everywhere I look I see great toys and cosplayers.  Most of the toys are a bit on the pricey side so I just took their pictures to remember them by.  It’s a bit of a bummer that my Coolpix P300’s battery died on me just when I’m on the roll.  Anyways, I did have a great time and I’m looking forward to the next toy/cosplay event.

Here are some shots of Marvel collectibles:

Movie Review: THOR

I was like a kid as I sat watching THOR in 3D. The scenes of Asgard was truly breathtaking especially in 3D. Kudos to those special effects wiz for fully realizing a grand vision of Asgard. The story is solid as it takes us to Asgard and to Earth and back.  And to the great cast, I have nothing but praises! Special mentions go to Chris Hemsworth, whose great physique and royal stature truly embodied the God of Thunder, and to the always great Anthony Hopkins who is very aptly cast as the great Asgardian King, Odin. Plus, don’t miss the appearance of a certain archer. Finally, thanks to Kenneth Brannagh, a brilliant director, for excellently bringing the epic world of Thor to the big screen. I just have three words for all of you: Go see it!
