The Savage Dragon creator Erik Larsen of Image Comics has commented on the inclusion of Dino-Cop in DC’s Multiversity on his twitter account as follows. Comics professionals Rob Liefeld and Tim Seeley also chimed in:

Looks like Erik Larsen wasn’t an initial fan, but understands its a parody. If DC Comics launches a New 52 Dino-Cop series, well Erik Larsen hints that all gloves will be off then.

Big Brother 16 Live Feed Spoilers: Zach’s Last Stand, Pitches Frankie To Stay, Threatens To Put Christine’s Husband On Blast During His Thursday Speech Wed, 20 Aug 2014 19:44:33 +0000 Big Brother house, it was time for both Donny and Zach to get their game faces on.]]> Yesterday in the Big Brother house, it was time for both Donny and Zach to get their game faces on.

Donny spoke to Cody and told him that he knew Zach was going this week and that he would be leaving next week if he didn’t win HOH. Donny told Cody that there were three people who were running things out of the six. He said the trio included Derrick, Frankie, and Christine. He said that Christine was flirting with him just to ensure his loyalty and then kick him out just like she did to Nicole. Donny said that Cody has no time left to make a move as Zach’s exit means that they don’t have the numbers to go against them, especially since Derrick also has Victoria.

Donny told Cody that he knew Cody’s play was to bank on Derrick taking him but that this was bad strategy. He said that Hayden trusted Derrick and had his throat cut. Donny felt that Derrick/Christine/Frankie were more loyal to each other than they were to Cody. Donny told Cody that Derrick didn’t have to win another HOH because nobody would put him up.

Donny said that Cody would finish fifth or sixth, because he has no numbers. Donny’s pitch was for Cody to win HOH and not get Donny out because they needed to start cutting the other side down. Donny said that he should tell everyone that he would not nominate Donny outright but would backdoor him. Then flip the script and shock them by backdooring someone else. Donny said that Cody didn’t have Derrick and Victoria as he was banking on because Derrick would rely on whichever F3 won HOH (whether that be Cody/Victoria or Frankie/Christine). Donny said that if Cody continued to trust Derrick, he would have to get him to cut either Frankie or Christine next.

Immediately after the conversation, Cody started talking to himself and wondered if the conversation was really necessary (clearly nothing Donny told him registered).

It was revealed that Victoria cut up the pink hat that Zach loved and she wrapped the remnants in tinfoil before placing them in a bag, hidden away with her things.

Donny and Zach had a long talk. Donny told Zach that it’s the saddest thing in the world to know that people threw a competition just to get him out of the house. Donny told Zach that he knew that he would be the next to go. He asked Zach what the plan is for the five once they get down to the end. Zach revealed that Derrick and Cody are together, Frankie and Caleb are together, and Christine will go to either Frankie or Cody. Donny said that it’s a dangerous game for Frankie to be playing since Derrick has Victoria in his back pocket. Zach told Donny to keep fighting and not give up, saying that he has fought for everything so far and his luck will come. He told Donny that he will win the game if he makes it to the end.

Donny said that he wanted nothing more than to see the big group splinter and he was hoping he could see it before he left. Donny told Zach to try and manipulate Frankie in hope of getting him to keep him around. Donny suggested to tell Frankie that once he and Donny are evicted, everyone will gun after him.

Frankie and Derrick talked. Frankie asked Derrick to update him on how Zach was feeling and Derrick said that Zach was the best he has ever been. Frankie agreed. They said that Zach has just been playing a character for a majority of the time in the house. They both said that they thought Zach would come back and Frankie said he would want him back more than anyone else. Frankie also said he wouldn’t mind if Jocasta returned.

Outside, Zach began rehearsing a final last stand speech to stay for Frankie. He would say that Cody has no enemies and no one would put him up while Frankie is going to be the easiest person to put up.

Frankie and Derrick agreed that they saw through Donny trying to drive wedges between them and their allies and that it didn’t make sense for Donny to target them personally because of the Team America connection. They agreed that Christine and Caleb would both nominate Donny and Victoria. Derrick said that they could not bring Victoria along every week because everyone would take her to F2 if she made it to the Final 3.

Zach said that he had no longer given up and would try to campaign again. Zach said that he would tell Christine that if she didn’t vote to keep him, he would put her on blast to her husband during his speech. Donny told him that turning Frankie would be Zach’s best move. Donny suggested that Zach tell Frankie that his sister made him a target and that no one is going to want to take him to the end because they cannot beat him. Donny felt that it may scare Frankie enough to want to keep Zach because of how paranoid Frankie always is. Donny said that Derrick on the other hand is too cool and would only make rational decisions.

Zach made his final pitch to Frankie. He asked why Frankie would keep Cody over him and Frankie told Zach that he is too unpredictable in the game. Frankie admitted that Cody wouldn’t take him to the end and Zach pounced on this and said that nobody would take Frankie to the end. Zach told Frankie to think long and hard about who he was sending home. Zach said that while Frankie wasn’t voting, he could still influence others (Christine and Caleb).×120.jpg

Big Brother 16 Live Feed Spoilers: Victoria Makes Her First Move Of The Game… Plots To Take Zach’s Hat Wed, 20 Aug 2014 18:26:09 +0000 On Monday evening, Zach continued to prepare for his impending eviction on Thursday.

While playing pool with Frankie, Zach said that he planned to say “to all you great, strong competitors… and Victoria.” Frankie tried to tell him that he could only be gone for 5 minutes if he returned to the game.

Christine admitted that her worst nightmare would be for someone were to return. Derrick predicted that Hayden would win a competition to get back in, seeing as he would be able to hold on to a wall the longest.

Victoria started talking to Cody about how much Zach hates her. Victoria said that the hat Zach always wears is hers and as a result, she could do whatever she wanted to it. She planned to steal the hat and destroy it. She wanted to capitalize on the fact that Zach admitted to her that he is “nothing without the hat.” She told Cody that the reason she wanted to do this is because Zach has been telling everyone she is useless and that she was worried about Zach’s reaction. She legitimately believed that Zach would pour boiling water on her face because he was leaving. Cody said that would never happen.

Zach, Frankie and Caleb happened to be outside when a fan yelled from just beyond the walls of the house. The fan apparently yelled “Zach, we love you! Beast Mode Cowboy, we hate you! Frankie, you’re disgusting!” Zach shouted back “We love you too! We love you! You’re the f*cking man!”. Big Brother immediately called for an indoor lockdown. When telling the others about the fan, Zach joked with Victoria and said that the fan said that she was the “worst.” Victoria went to the bedroom with Cody and Christine and told them that she was pissed. She told them that she has had enough of him. She confirmed she was going to destroy the hat. Big Brother then called her to the diary room.

Upon her return DR, Victoria told Cody and Christine that she had to be careful if she destroys the hat because there is the potential for an accident to happen with the scissors if Zach tries to fight back to get the hat from her. She said that it could result in a penalty nomination being given to her. She decided to take the chicken way out and wait to do it when Zach was asleep. Cody and Christine offered their assistance if she needs any help.

At approximately 11 PM, Zach finally left the hat on the table. When Victoria asked Cody and Christine if she should take it, Christine remained non-committal while Cody encouraged her to. She grabbed it and ran to the Have-Not room. She yelled for Christine to bring her a knife. Feeds were then cut.

Once they returned, Caleb eventually asked everyone where the hat was. Victoria said “oh I ripped it apart.” She said that she is so excited because if Zach touches her he will be going home tonight.

Victoria went to the have-not room and told Zach that she is going to bed. He said okay. She let him know that there are no hard feelings. Zach said that he did have hard feelings. She tried to threaten him and said that he should know that whatever he touches of hers, he is not going to have to deal with her but he is going to have to deal with production. Zach eventually left the room and she went to bed. Zach then began searching the house for the hat. Zach was called to the diary room a short while later.

As usual, while Zach was in the DR, Frankie, Victoria, Christine and Cody started trashing him. Frankie suggested that Victoria ask that Big Brother has guards on standby with tranquillizer guns. Victoria said that if Zach touches her he will be in handcuffs and will go to jail. Once Zach got of the DR, he asked Victoria if she would give the hat back. She would not. He said that she is just doing this to piss him off. Victoria told him that it is her hat and he is going home, so she wants to have it. Zach let her know that she could have just asked him and he would have given it back to her if she really wanted it. Victoria felt that Zach would not have given it back if that were the case. Zach reminded her that she had told him that he could have the hat and Victoria said that she never said this. Zach then told her that if she wants to play games they can play games all week.

Zach told Victoria that she could either give the hat back or keep it and force him to “get it back.” When Victoria went to bed, Zach asked her again if she will give it back to him. Victoria said that she didn’t know. Zach kept pestering but Victoria didn’t answer. Zach said he needed a definitive answer so he could plan his eviction outfit. Victoria said that he just told her that a fan had called her the worst and Zach admitted that he was just joking about it. Zach eventually made peace with her keeping it but said that it sucked since she wouldn’t even wear it.×120.jpg

Blu-ray Review: Revolution (Season 2) Wed, 20 Aug 2014 18:04:18 +0000 Revolution is a brilliant concept with horrible execution. The world’s power supply has been shut down and electricity is no longer available. With anarchy reigning in this post apocalyptic world, the fate of the world lies around the neck of Ben (Tim Guinee). Accompanied by his two children (Tracy Spiradakos, Graham Rogers), it’s up to him to navigate the world they live in and try to return civilization back to where it once was.

It’s a brilliant conceit. We have all the trappings of the old world but with none of the electricity to power it. Set up in a longform narrative structure due to television, the show’s focus has been on this conceit that everything can be righted by turning the power back on. Normally in a film version utilizing a variant of this scenario we don’t have time to explore the world that’s happened after the fall of civilization. With 20 episodes of television we get a chance to slow down and explore the world, as opposed to glimpse over it in a tenth of that amount of time.

The problem is that despite the fact that it’s a brilliant concept the show has 40 episodes where it doesn’t do much interesting with it. This is a fairly dull television show, nothing more, that takes an insanely cool premise and makes a fairly boring show out of it. The second season is a departure from the first in that it’s much worse than the first was; there’s a reason why this was on the chopping block early and wasn’t renewed.

It’s sad because the season ends on a cliffhanger that’ll never be resolved. It doesn’t have a sense of closure to it, as the season two finale becomes the de facto series finale.

There’s a handful of extras. The usual suspects (deleted scenes, gag reel, EPK pieces) are included as well as the 2013 Comic-Con panel with the cast and creators.

Warner Home Video presents Revolution (Season 2). Starring Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos. Running time: 968 minutes. Not Rated. Released: August 19, 2014.×120.jpg

He-Man & The Masters Of The Universe Classics Club Eternia Did Not Reach Minimum, Subscriptions To Be Re-Opened For One Last Push Wed, 20 Aug 2014 15:03:17 +0000 MattyCollector’s Masters of the Universe Club Eternia did not reach the minimum when the subscription window closed this week, however Mattel’s Toy Guru did announce that the Subs will be re-opened for this upcoming weekend for one last push.

Hey He-Fans and She-Ravers,
We are sooooo close! 2015 subs ended with about 90%. A great showing but not quite close enough to go forward. With the end of the vintage line (redone in Classics) in question, we truly do believe in our fan base. We’re going to reopen the subs for an extension window from Friday, 8/22 at 9:00 a.m. PT through Monday, 8/25 at 11:59 PT.

Now is the time to rally! If everyone who sub’d last year would renew, we’d be golden. If you’re on the fence or were thinking of cherry-picking, remember… if the sub does not get that last critical 10% there won’t be a line to cherry-pick.

So please, let’s all come together! All MOTU fans of all eras truly make Classics the greatest MOTU (if not all brands) toy line of all time! I know we can do it! If you’re holding out, remember, unlike any previous year you pretty much know exactly who you’re getting, with our absolute promise to finish the vintage MOTU line, MOTU variants, original POP characters, and A-list New Adventures and media characters.

Let’s come together and make this happen! We really believe in our fans, and we’ve got one last chance. All our cards are on the table… it’s time to go all in!

Here’s (hopefully) to a great 2015!
Scott “ToyGuru” Neitlich
