Over the weekend, Marvel’s Jesse Falcon made an announcement that should have Marvel/Black Panther fans very excited. Falcon revealed the Marvel Legends 12-inch Black Panther Action Figure at the D23 Expo. Now, the thing is, this action figure is from toy maker Hasbro and so, one should not expect a boat load of details like you would get from collectibles from Hot Toys and the likes. Despite that being the case, the first images seem to point to quite a reasonable amount of details. Based on the upcoming Black Panther solo movie starring Chadwick Boseman as the T’ChallaBlack Panther, the toy version the king and protector of Wakanda is showed garbed in his vibranium-weave suit complete with the menacing retractable claws, locked and loaded.

A Custom Fidget Spinner That Makes Mario Runs Is As Cool As It Sounds

I never understand the fidget spinner hype. Perhaps, I am a little too old? Or maybe, my digits do not find the need to, you know, fidget? That’s not to say I am a non-fidget saint. When I was younger I did fidget, but back in those days, we never had novelties like fidget spinners. We twirl our pens instead and I am not going to lie, during my entire student life, I always find myself twirling a writing instrument. In fact, I was getting pretty good at it to a point that I started “studying” the balance of each pen or pencil to determine which make/model was the best to satisfy my need to fidget. I only fall short of modifying the writing instrument to meet my restless digits’ needs. Continue reading A Custom Fidget Spinner That Makes Mario Runs Is As Cool As It Sounds
