Marvel's Netflix Series get some action figures!

Are you a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Are you a fan of the Marvel series on Netflix?

Are you a collector?

This weekend at the New York Toy Fair, Hasbro unleashed their newest line of Marvel Legends action figures, and they are based on the Netflix versions of Daredevil, The Punisher, Elektra, and Jessica Jones! As all collectors know, the 'Marvel Legends' figures are one of the best things to happen to action figures since the movable appendages! The 'Marvel Legends' figures have covered some of the most popular characters in the Marvel universe, and (just like the rest of the 'Legends' line), these Netflix-based figures look absolutely amazing and they will make a great addition to any Marvel fans collection.

Let's hope this is only the first series of characters, because I would love to see a Luke Cage, Iron Fist or Kingpin figure as well!

These are scheduled to be released in 2017, but that is all we know so far.

Check out these figures:


Michigan Hops industry is booming!

We all know that Michigan's brewing industry has been growing over the last few years. All signs are pointing to the craft beer industry in Michigan to continue to grow.

When brewing continues to boom, the industries that support breweries are sure to follow. We are currently seeing a massive jump in growing hops in our state. notes "Prior to 2008, Michigan hadn't had a commercial hops-growing operation for more than a century. Now, we're fourth in the nation."

This isn't the first time Michigan is seeing hops farms. Hops have been grown in Michigan as early as the mid-1800's, though it did not stand the test of time. With the explosive growth in Michigan brewing, the Hops farming industry is going through a renaissnace.

Listen to the full interview above to hear about the history of hops in this country, and learn what it takes to put together a hops growing operation in Michigan.


Joker vs Joker fan film

Who is your Joker?

What happens when a man who just wants to watch the world burn meets a guy who can't wait to show you his toys?

YouTube superstars over at "ismahawk" have put together another phenomenal fan film pitting  Heath Ledger's Joker from The Dark Knight against Jared Leto's Joker from Suicide Squad.

Hisonni Johnson with "ismahawk" has been making fan films for years, and has Superman and Green Lantern projects in the works for 2017.  In a world when leaked test footage helped install Tim Miller in the Deadpool director's chair, Johnson sees these films as a unique calling card opportunity to break into the big leagues.

The Joker video was made with a lot of help, including Hal Rydberg of Pixel arts Props, and featured costumes donated by Cosplay Sky and makeup from  Chrissy Lynn Kyle. Jan Flugum played Leto's Joker, and Charlie Starling plays a mystery character revealed later in the video.

Check out battle below. 


STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Sneak Peek! has released an early sneak peak for Force Friday II (the fan event where The Last Jedi's merchandise launches).

The image shows the familiar faces of Poe, Rey, and Finn, but with a slightly unfamiliar style choice.

Most notably different is Daisy Ridley's Rey. While confidently handling her lightsaber, she is now wearing her hair half-down, rather than in her trademark series of buns.

Here's a sneak peek

Force Friday II will take place on September 1 and it will be showing off new toys, books, clothing and more. This year's event will surely teach us a lot more about The Last Jedi than we know now. Star Wars: The Last Jedi will arrive on December 15.
