Sunday Special: Power Lords, Revell

This week's Sunday Special is all about the amazing Power Lords series from Revell.

 

As a kid, I always wanted these but somehow they were rather hard to find around it. Believe it or not, I finally got my first Power Lords action figure as an adult!

 

Revell hired Wayne Barlowe (author/artist of Barlowe's Guide to Extraterrestrials) to design the toys.

 

Each figure has an action feature. Adam Power can change into Lord Power by pushing a button to turn his torso around to reveal the Lord Power side; Shaya is a 2-sided figure who is changed by turning her cape around and removing her helmet; Arkus' wings flap. Each figure also includes a file card, which provides a brief dossier on the character and demonstrates how to initiate its special feature.

 

DC Comics published a 3-issue Power Lords comic book series beginning in December 1983. A video game, board game, jigsaw puzzle and coloring book based on the characters were also released that same year.

Saturday Movie

Saturday Movie

Isaac and myself love movies. Now every Saturday we will quickly talk about a movie we recently watched. Hope you enjoy and share in your views with us.

Terminator Genisys

When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance against Skynet, sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect his mother, Sarah (Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator assassin, an unexpected turn of events creates an altered timeline. Instead of a scared waitress, Sarah is a skilled fighter and has a Terminator guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger) by her side. Faced with unlikely allies and dangerous new enemies, Reese sets out on an unexpected new mission: reset the future.

Where to begin? With the nonsense possibilities of time travel within a story, this new Terminator is both a sequel and a reboot. It desperately tries to be as good as the first two film with stealing scenes from them and reworking them in a new ridiculous timeline. In the end it is still fun but totally forgettable.

Director: Alan Taylor
Running time: 126 minutes
Released: 2015

Playmobil

Lately, Calixa has been addicted to Playmobil. I decided to give her this cool playset (#5575). And yes you can actually put water in the pool.

Sunday Special: PrestoMagix, Tomy, Omnibot, Mike Tyson Punch Out, Nintendo

One of my favourite thing to do as a kid was PrestoMagix. So much fun. Wish this was still being made.
