This set has been a long time coming. It was a fan made set presented to LEGO via the site CUUSOO. Where you can submit your sets and if they follow the guidelines and get enough support they can be made into a real LEGO set as is the case with the cool Delorean Time Machine set. Sadly I have to wait until tomorrow to actually buy it at LEGO.com though.

Check out the original Back to the Future LEGO CUUSOO project to compare the fan model with the LEGO model.

The official announcement and news about the project are available over at the LEGO CUUSOO blog.

Here is my review that Yelp.com seems to have flagged/filtered/removed for their own stupid reasons.

Five Stars ***** for 1Up Collectibles

This is the best comic shop in the area hands down!

I have had issues with other shops giving you attitude (think Comic Book Guy in the Simpsons). NOT HERE.

The owner is super friendly and knowledgeable about his products (and customers). I went in looking for back issues because my previous store had screwed up my subscriptions so bad I was missing loads of issues. When they did not have them in stock he went out of his way to find them for me and I have been a regular ever since.

Since I have started getting my subscriptions here there have been a few hiccups but every single one of them was dealt with promptly and with superior customer service.

For one of the best in shop comic book experiences around head to 1Up Collectibles.


I feel censored by them when I come in and give a good review only to have it disappear because they feel my review (my thoughts, my opinions) are not valid. Instead of removing these supposedly bought/paid for reviews why not simply require us to put in a FCC disclaimer at the end of every review (we have to do it for blog posts why shouldn’t they have to do it as well?) Then the world could judge for itself if the review is valid or not.

Disclosure/Disclaimer: I was not given anything in exchange for this review. Unless you count the bag full of comics I come home with every time I visit 1Up Collectibles, but I pay for those…oh yeah…I do get a discount but that’s part of my subscription service (anyone will get that if they subscribe), so I don’t think that counts as a gift. Besides it was not in exchange for this review.

A writer, Tucker Harding, is hired to cover an article on the hydrogen-bomb test, Nevada, 1952. While there, radiation mutates her code/soul, spawning in her the ability to travel through time by force of will. Not long after she is murdered by a woman from the future, Ofelia, intent on securing her own ability to time travel. However, before her death Tucker travels to the year 1997 where she meets Drew, a failed writer who has been infected with Tuckers original mutation since birth.

Time travel can give you headaches Don’t think too hard about it just watch it.

Buy Sticky Fingers of Time at Amazon.

With the new Batman Dark Knight Rises film coming out this summer, I really wanted to get a Batman costume this year for Halloween. Heck there is even still time to get one before the film hits the theaters if you wish to go to the midnight showing dressed as the Dark Knight.

Batman Costume For a great selection of Batman costumes check out Costume Discounters. The have a great selection of Batman (classic), Batgirl and Dark Knight costumes.

I got the Dark Knight costume hoping it would actually fit me this year after having lost some weight. (Yay it did, mostly.) This costume includes everything you need to jump in your Batmobile and hit the convention, movie or party right out of the package. Costume comes complete with the iconic Batman cowl with attached cape, one piece costume, boot covers and utility belt.

All the adult costumes have a padded muscle chest piece, which looks nice but doesn’t feel great wearing it. For women this can act as further disguise of who you are underneath that cowl, but the chest piece is rather broad across the shoulders and does not allow for easy moment. Idela if all you want to do is strike a superhero pose with shoulders back and hands on hips (like the photo). This is not a big deal if you are only going to be in it for a few hours at a party or the movies, but if you plan on spending all day at a comic con you might want to see about altering it.

The material is a light weight polyester (stretchy material) that makes the costume easy to get on and should not make you over heat too quickly. However, it is not too thin of a material that it would make you uncomfortable wearing it.

Some much needed accessories would be gauntlets (gloves) and Batarangs, but not necessary for a good Batman look.

I highly recommend that you take the costume out of the package long before you want to wear and reform the cowl and utility belt as they are not ready to go straight out of the box, so to speak.

This is an official DC Comics licensed Batman costume.

Disclosure: I was sent this Batman costume by Costume Discounters for this review. This in no way guides this review or my opinion of the products. All comments and remarks are my own.

Call me crazy (hahaha very funny), but I love this Wampa Rug. It is an officially licensed Star Wars product made by ThinkGeek.com (gotta love those geeks). I already have the TaunTaun sleeping bag (and I have to make a lightsaber noise every time I open it too). It keeps me toasty warm on those [...]
