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

The Warriors

A turf battle between New York City street gangs that rages from Coney Island to the Bronx. The Warriors are mistakenly fingered for the killing of a gang leader. Soon they have every gang in the city out to get revenge and they must make their way across the city to their own turf.

A masterpiece that blew me away back in 1979 and still does today. Each gang have a unique name, look and theme. This is New York in a cartoonish, violent, and totally fun way.

Director: Walter Hill
Running time: 92 minutes
Released: 1979

Sunday Special: Sectaur, Coleco, Scribblenauts, The Other World, Arco, Mattel, Rodan

Without a doubt, the Sectaurs is one of the greatest action figures collection of all time. We own plenty of them but sadly not the Hive playset.


Scribblenauts was a really cool video game and they made an even cooler figurine.


The Other World from Arco was one of my favourite collection as a kid. Wish I still owned them.


One of our most WANTED toy... Rodan!

Kung Fury

In 1985, Kung Fury, the toughest martial artist cop in Miami, goes back in time to kill the worst criminal of all time - kung fuhrer Hitler.

An extremely fun and entertaining over-the-top action comedy that has its foundation in 1980s movies; Martial arts, Nazis, Dinosaurs, Post nuke chick, Thor and more! I especially loved the way that they faked this as being on a BETAMAX (or VHS) video tape.

Director: David Sandberg
Running time: 31 minutes
Released: 2015
