Bodyfriend Wants Superheroes And Lamborghini To Massage Your Back

If massage chairs have never pique your interest because of the (boring) stereotype designs, then perhaps Bodyfriend may be able to change your mind. Not only has Bodyfriend shake up the traditional market of massage with its innovative designs, but its bold ambitious to capture the two of the world’s biggest markets, the U.S.A. and China, has lead to the collaboration with one of the most recognizable brand: Marvel. Bodyfriend. The Bodyfriend Marvel HUG CHAIR is the first-ever special collaboration with Marvel and it features a design unlike no other massage chairs. Well, that, of course, is besides from the obvious Captain America and Iron Man touches (apparently, Spider-Man will soon join the ranks too), which are all digging over here.

Avengers: Infinity War‘s First Trailer Nearly Took My Breath Away

Suddenly, I wanted May 2018 to arrive sooner, all because of Avengers: Infinity War. We knew Marvel Studios’ biggest project to date, Avengers: Infinity War, will be grand in every ways. Grand in cast, you know, the coming together of all our favorite superheroes old and new. Grand in the settings and not to mention, the crazy FX and CGI that makes all the movie magic possible. We expected and anticipated those, but to see the first trailer, I am totally stoked and breathless at the same time. Completely overwhelmed is what I would use to describe how I felt after watching the 2 minute plus preview. Yes. It is just 2.24 minutes, but it feels like forever (in a good way).

Good News, Here’s A Mjölnir Everyone Can Lift, But The Size Might Be An Issue

It is said that only the worthy one will be able to lift the mythical Mjölnir, but with the Marvel Thor’s Hammer 4’ Oversized Foam Prop, you don’t need to be worthy or enchanted to wield it because, it has a real-world weight of mere 20 lbs (around 9 kilograms). Hell, even a kid could pull it along. No, wait. There is just one problem here. At 4 feet (1.2 meter) tall, it might be a little too big to be conveniently lug around and obviously, it won’t make you fly like Thor. On the bright side, Magneto won’t be able to snatch it from you because, it is crafted from Uru, the magical Asgardian metal. Nah. Just kidding. It is not made of Uru. It is of prop-favorite material: foam. Continue reading Good News, Here’s A Mjölnir Everyone Can Lift, But The Size Might Be An Issue

Disneyland Paris To Get Marvel-Themed Disney’s New York Hotel

Disney’s biggest cash cow is probably not the surprise hit Frozen, or any other of its animated flicks. If anything, it would be Marvel and Star Wars, which now proves to be the two most worthy acquisitions the entertainment company has ever made. And I am not going to lie: we never loved Disney this much before. Disney has taken, in particular, Marvel to a height previously unthinkable and it is continuing to do so by giving fans more tangible experience outside of the theaters. The Marvel-themed Disney’s New York Hotel is one such endeavor. Continue reading Disneyland Paris To Get Marvel-Themed Disney’s New York Hotel

Hasbro Unveiled 12-inch Marvel Legends Series Black Panther Figure

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.

Captain America Bronze Statue Blurs The Line Between Fiction And Reality

2016 marks the 75th years of Captain America, one of Marvel’s earliest superhero who clearly stood the test of time. Given Cap’s embodiment of American spirit and patriotism, it is only natural that Marvel will want to celebrate this occasion and it did so with this imposing 13-foot bronze tribute statue created by the Marvel Creative Team in association with Comicave Studios. The statue was first unveiled at this year’s SDCC and subsequently, in a Captain America anniversary ceremony on August 10, 2016, held at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY.

Marvel Teamed Up NASA, Puts Groot And Rocket On CASIS Mission Patch

Nope. What you see here is not the new emblem for the next Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy comics. It is a custom designed mission patch that will see real world, or rather, space use. It is an official mission patch that will find its way on all payloads heading to the National Laboratory on the International Space Station (ISS). Announced at the San Diego Comic-Con by Center of the Advancement of Science in Space, or CASIS in short, the patch features Marvel’s space dwelling heroes, the perennial plant Groot and the highly intelligent, anthropomorphic raccoon Rocket, against a space blue backdrop decorated with the silhouette of the space station, along with stars which are actually the flame found on the Guardians of the Galaxy shield. Continue reading Marvel Teamed Up NASA, Puts Groot And Rocket On CASIS Mission Patch

Captain America Barbell Plates: Super Soldier Serum Not included

The truth is, Captain America aka Steve Rogers is not any different from Tony Stark. While Tony Stark propels himself to superhero status with advanced exoskeleton suits, our dear patriotic Captain was no more than a scrawny kid who got pumped with experimental super solider serum that turns him into a person with superhuman strength. So in a way, he’s like Tony: a cheat. The only difference is, he can’t simply shed his ‘suit’. Anywho, that’s sci-fi fantasy and all fitness nuts know that there’s no super soldier serum, nor are there any shortcut to bulging muscles and super strength. It takes hard work, but as consolation, you can at least work your way, in a traditional manner, with the soon-to-be-released Hero Elite Series Captain America Barbell Plates by fitness equipment maker, Onnit Labs (officially, ‘The Onnit/Marvel Hero Elite Series of Fitness Equipment‘). Continue reading Captain America Barbell Plates: Super Soldier Serum Not included

Captain America: Civil War Trailer #2 Had Us All Pumped!

This is it. The next Marvel superhero blockbuster is drawing close, which means it is also about time Marvel Entertainment hit fans up with a new Captain America: Civil War trailer, which it did today. Spoiler or not, you’re going to watch it, because we are finally getting a proper look at your friendly neighborhood spider superhero (it’s a big thing, made bigger by the movie licensing issue). As for the trailer, it is a ‘traditional’ mix of emotions (not my cuppa, honestly) and tons of action, including chase sequence, hand-to-hand combat, explosions and more explosions, that makes a superhero flick ticks (yeah, baby, yeah!). And someone got shot down by Winter Soldier while Scott Lang aka Ant-Man hitched a ride on Hawkeye’s arrow. Continue reading Captain America: Civil War Trailer #2 Had Us All Pumped!
