Star Wars: Stormtrooper Lightbox - review

CoverAdvanced holographic images like those in Star Wars may be a little way off from home installation, but these awesome Holopane light boxes come pretty close. Turn it on to see a lit up life-like image of a stormtrooper’s mask that appears to follow you around the room, changing appearance when viewed from different angles. It’s actually a very clever optical illusion, but it’s definitely one that will start conversations and cause amazement... [click here...]

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi - review

CoverThe Last Jedi definitely feels like the middle of something rather than a joyous beginning or a nail biting conclusion. It's a crowded ensemble piece with multiple interweaving storylines.

Thor 12-Inch Action Figure - Toy review

CoverHasbro release a new 12-inch figure in the Marvel Legends collection. Rather than the film versions with which so many people are familiar, it’s nice to see a return to the comic book interpretations. Here we have a very muscular God of Thunder, Son of Odin, with over 30 points of articulation. He is donned in his classic Asgard attire – complete with cape. There are two alternative hands and two Mjolnir hammers – one of which allows the light through it. The hands that are already on the figure are a left clenched fist and a slightly open right fist which grips the hammer. As you would expect the two spare hands are the opposite to this. So, you might have him hold both hammers, or may want to have him clench both fists and slot the handle of Mjolnir through his belt... [click here...]

CoverSilva Screen Records release a second volume of music from Thunderbirds are Go, a modern remake of the classic 1960s adventure series. With the stories focused around the Tracy brothers it's fitting that another team of brothers, Ben and Nick Foster have taken on the job of providing new music for this seminal series.
