Sideshow Collectibles – Pacific Rim

SideshowPacificRim01

Sideshow Collectibles are one of the Best creators of Models and Memorabilia out there. They create the best collectibles of our favorite characters and icons from the worlds of film, television, comic books and popular culture. There are other cool manufacturers out there, but not as good as Sideshow Collectibles. As for Comic-Con that is the biggest convention of Pop Culture in the world which takes place in San Diego, and in these pictures are the models for Pacific Rim which I loved. I usually try to get my hands on any Robot Memorabilia out there like Transformers, Reel Steel, and now Pacific Rim.

Above is Gypsy Danger, one of the heroes of Pacific Rim, a Third Generation Jaeger meant to kick the Kaiju back to where they came from. The movie revolves around it’s main operator and it is one hell of a robot, and Sideshow made one very cool model of it, and its already available for PreOrder which I placed with AlterEgoComics. It’s rare to get such a high quality robot piece and this one looks to be one hell of a Jaeger just from the pictures at Comic-Con

This was a surprise for me, another Jaeger, Striker Eureka, “the strongest and the fastest” Jaeger with 11 Kaiju kills, and make up the Resistance’s “go-to team”. It was one very cool looking Jaeger, and now that Sideshow has developed it into one very cool looking model I love it. It’s not up for PreOrder yet, but when it is, I am ordering it. The pair of Jaegers will look good together, and it will give me something to enjoy while I wait for Del Toro to come up with the sequel for Pacific Rim which revolves around Drifting. If you haven’t seen the movie, you should go see it.

07/13 Playlist – The Update

retroheadphones

Its summer and hot right now and everyone is stuck in their cars during traffic. This is the updated playlist from my 04/13 playlist, it complements it but it has its on feel to it as well. Luckily since I moved my iTunes library things are much easier. Now I’m back to syncing my iPods and plugging them into the car. I picked up a few iPod Classic just in case I needed a few more, since all the connections for iPods in the cars are still the 30pin not the new type and they don’t work with the iPhone 5 platform. So new iPods can’t connect to even 2014 vehicles from what I have seen. So for now I’m sticking to the classic iPods which are just huge hard drives for my music.

Forbidden Planet – A Must In London

Pop Culture Central of Europe, the best place for any Geek/Nerd to visit while in London, I visit there on every trip I take to London and there is always something different to see or something that really excites me. Movie memorabilia of every kind, Comics, games and anime collectibles that you only see online, every Star Wars & Harry Potter fan would go nuts there. Still I never get tired of it, I could spend hours there, there is always something that I want to purchase but these days I am lacking space so I always choose items that fit or that make me think “MUST HAVE IT”

One section that people forget about is there HUGE comic and graphic novel collection down stairs, I picked up all of the novels by the comedian Kevin Smith, read a few pages and they are pretty funny and he is a funny guy so decided to take all his books. Then there is the Transformers section which have all the stuff dating back to the 80s up to the new things from IDW in 2012. They sold some fake weaponry which looked really cool but I didn’t want to risk taking that on a plane with me. When walking around upstairs I honestly don’t know what to pick up, I tell myself not to go overboard, I never have enough space in my bags but then I don’t reason well with myself and pick up a few things that I end up walking out with a smile, if your wondering what they are its the items in the last picture in this post.
