Star Wars Blu-Ray DVD “NOOOOoooo~”

Good. Frickin’. God.  Why, George? WHY!?

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say Mr. Lucas was trolling us Star Wars fans. That “Nooo~” dialogue by Vader in RotS was bad enough. This added “Nooo~” dialogue in an other wise epic scene in an epic movie just spoils it. Can’t we have just the version that was originally released in theatres?

I would almost put Ol’Georgey’s decisions here on par with that lady who lit that vintage Boba Fett action figure I mentioned a while back.

SH Figuarts Godzilla by Bandai

GAAAAAOOOOOO~! At long last!! A reasonably priced and well detailed figure of the Big G!

Preorders just went up on Ami-ami!!

Thank you Bandai! I have been salivating for the king monsters ever since production models came out.

As is all SH Figuarts figures, the Big G is fully articulated right down to the tail.  From initial photos of what I’ve seen, I’m guessing this would be slightly larger than similar Sci-fi action figures from Revoltech, have also started their own Godzilla line with the release of Angairus and Mothra earlier this year.  Bandai shot ahead and just went in for the kill by releasing Godzilla and Mecha Godzilla.  One thing I’m eager to see as a poseable action figure is King Ghidora.

But with Bandai usurping the release of this beauty, Kaiyodo may still just have one up on the former by putting a 1/80 scale Vinyl model of Godzilla.  This however commands a wee bit more than the 3000+Jpy asking price of the SH Monster arts figures.  I mean just look at the size of that thing!

So which of these incarnations of the King of Monsters tickles your bank accounts? Just click on the images to take you to their product pages.

Not the right way to deal with marriage problems

Caught this video by way of twitter user @SithSarcasm

A disgruntled wife has now brought to the internet her ire for her husband’s Star Wars  collection. So, she decides to upload a video to youtube asking what she can do to get her hubby to clean up his collection by setting fire to a vintage figure of Boba Fett. Yes, you read right. She set fire to a VINTAGE action figure of BOBA FETT.

Heidi is a real housewife who is fed up with her husband’s obsessive hobby of toy collecting. Endless pleading with him to clean up their house has fallen on deaf ears. She has decided to make a statement by gradually destroying her husband’s star wars and other toy figures. Beginning this week, she will creatively reduce his collection by what viewers suggest.

As any smart and sensible human being would do, there’s more than one way to get your partner’s attention about something that irks you. Taking a candle to your other half’s prized possessions are often left to really, REALLY bad break up situations such as a cheating husband/wife.  Seriously, whatever happened to being supportive of your partner’s hobbies and such.

As per her seeking advice, here’s my suggestion: Sign up for the Witness Protection program.  Because once this video goes viral, there will be no hiding from the droves of rabid Star Wars fans who will want to see her head on a stick.

Meanwhile, here’s a more amusing and cuter video to quell your anger.

Funky iPhone 4 cases

So you’ve got yourself an iPhone4.. along with the 50 other folks in the MRT. And along with your desires to be unique in a sea of Nokias and Blackberrys, you find yourself again ubiquitous among a school of iPhones. So you change your wallpaper, ring tone and for an adventurous few, jailbreak it.  It still doesn’t change the fact that you’re holding a hunk expensive silicon chips encased in ABS plastic and stainless steel with, maybe, a rubber bumper stopper around it.

If you really want to  make your $600 Apple branded doodad really stand out?  Then Jlist.com just might have the thing for you.  Up for pre-order, is a line of funky and attention grabbing iPhone 4 cases from Poddities in Japan.  I sense these things will get snapped up fast.  Not only do they make your iPhone look good, they also protect them from dings and scratches.

Designed specifically for iPhone 4′s, these cases are made from light weight polycarbonate and should keep your precious protected from a good number of things the elements would chuck at you.  Just don’t expect it to stop a bullet or drop it from the top of the Burj Khalifa.

I’d get that Famicom looking case in a jiffy if only I had an iPhone4.  But I’m not about to ditch my 8gb “iPooed” touch.  It’s not exactly an uber toy but it serves my interests. That and the case I got for it isn’t too shabby either.

Rumor Mill: New Star Wars Trilogy

“In October 2010, a story on IESB.net claimed that a new Star Wars sequel trilogy would debut about two years after the re-release of Return of the Jedi in 3D. IESB’s source also reported that the new trilogy would take place somewhere between one hundred and one thousand years after the original trilogy, and would not focus on the Skywalker family.[7][8] This rumor was quickly debunked by Lucasfilm spokesman Josh Kushins, who said “there are no new Star Wars feature films planned.”[9]Wookipedia

Yeah… that little excerpt was more than enough to send shivers down my spine, shit in my pants and have a nose bleed unlike any oppai laden anime on air to date.
