Geekfest Rants Ep.318:The Shat - Clash of the Titans Figures

The time has come to dive deep into The Shat. That's a noun not a verb. William Shatner is the name and acting is his game. Join us today at GeekFest Rants as Carlos highlights William Shatner's career in movies, television. and music.

While most people might know him for playing Captain Kirk in Star Trek, his resume is huge. His performances range from excellent to "what the hell did we just watch" caliber. So on this episode we'll hit a few of them.

Then we'll cover another classic 80's toy line from Mattel, Clash of the Titans. It's time to unleash the Kraken

Found Drawing Of Iceberg 13?

I recently found this drawing on a piece of paper at The Dig. I brought it up to The Station and our dude, Iceberg 13 took on look at it and was all like "That is me". I mean, not really but if dude thinks that's what he looks like, more power to him. A good body image is really important. 

I always thought that he looked more like a Gonk Droid but you know, I'm not going to say anything to him about it. I remember once he told me that he saw things in numbers.. That must be the reason he sees that dude up there when he looks in the mirror maybe..

Silver Surfer Minimate..

I'm pretty pleased with how this pic came out even if I don't really like how Instagram chops pics feet off sometimes. They use squares but a lot of pics I take are rectangles.. IDK, I need to learn to adjust. If you want to follow me on Instagram you can do so HERE!!!!  I like to think I have some fun pics over there..

I took this pic many moons ago but found it in my dropbox and messed around with some filters on it. I'm not into Minimates as much as I used to be but I still like the simple block figure design. I also like how much they get out of a minimalist type style. There aren't a lot of details but each dude totally looks like who they are. 

Minimates are nice toys but I have literally hundreds of them so I'm sort of like, who could they make that I'd ever need? I was starting to get in to Reaction figures instead of Minimates but then they sort of pulled the whole line out of TRU so you know.. what are you gonna do? If they don't have the toys right in front of my face I'm prolly not going to get them. I don't really know why. I'm sort of a hunter and if there is no hunt then there really isn't any fun in it for me..

Thor Ragnarok Marvel Legends: Hela and Some Thoughts On Cate Blanchett.

What an awesome figure. Dude, just so great. Those antlers are so rad. If you don't know, now you know, that's Hela from Thor Ragnarok the upcoming Marvel flick that looks AMAZING! Hela is the big baddie in the joint. According to the trailers she has the power to squeeze Thor's magic hammer like a sponge. That's pretty dope. 

She just looks so evil. We went all over Santa Rosa and a couple other towns before I finally found her figure at Target, the Coddingtown one. I don't think she's that hard to find or anything. I just wanted her NOW! I was in like a toy frenzy. Do you ever get that way? Like you just have to have the figure that you want like RIGHT THIS SECOND! I was like that. 

Like I said a second ago Hela is played by the all time legend, Cate Blanchett who I totally lovc and when I saw mock ups of the figure I saw that she came with a little Blanchett head.. That was the selling point to me. 

Man, I am trying really hard not to fall down the Marvel Legends Rabbit Hole. I like them and there are a ton out there that I am into but man, I don't need another toy interest. They are great though. Very detailed. I haven't really been buying Minimates as of late so I have room for an interest but Legends take up way more space though. Hela is a HUGE SPACE TAKER, those antlers need room to breath man. 

Here is her with her Blanchett head. It's cool. It looks a lot like her. Take a look for yourself. I am so looking forward to this movie. Man, it's looking to be the best Marvel Movie since like Guardians Of The Galaxy 2.

It opens on November 3rd which is 2.0's birthday and the day before my birthday. Ya, we have to share days practically and she usually gets to have the more fun but this year should be cool cuz we have this dope movie to watch. You can't really beat that. 

To get back on track this is a really nice looking figure. Her antlers sort of fell apart when I pulled her out of the box but they came back together easy enough. You are forewarned, if you get this be careful pulling her out of the packaging

DC Multiverse Action Figure: Batgirl Of Burnside

I've wanted this figure for a while now but I've never seen it in any of the stores around here, like ever. Seriously not even once. It was going for like 30 bucks on ebay which is a little rich for my blood. I sort of looked around for awhile and managed to find some dude who was auctioning her off with a starting bid of 8 bucks.

He said he wanted the build a figure parts. I was the only dude who bid so ya, got her for a great price. Totally stoked. Free shipping too.. The build a figure is King Shark I think.

I think it's a good looking figure and I'm a big fan of the costume design. I read her comic for awhile and while I did like it the book didn't make the cut when I did a big subscription purge.

It was good but it and me never connected. I don't know. I like I like how she looks. It's like modern but also retains a classic feel. You know she's Batgirl when you see her.

She comes with her phone which was one of her major weapons in the comic and a Batarang. I also like how she is designed after the drawing of the character as opposed to making a more realistic version. That is sometimes off putting to me. Have you seen the Supergirl one of these? She looks like Melissa Benoist but in a creepy way... 

Overall I'm pretty pleased with the purchase. She's fairly poseable which not all figures are. She's a bit more moveable than say a Marvel Legend.  She's 6 inches tall. I prolly should have mentioned that too.
