Ant-man Spoiler-free Review

I saw Ant-man last night.  I have never been a big fan of the character or of the Avengers as a whole.  However, the latest run of Marvel movies changed that for me.  Plus, Paul Rudd is usually funny and the costume looked cool.  So I gave it a shot.

I definitely wasn’t disappointed.  It was a blast.  Marvel has become really good at making movies with just the right amount of action, drama, and humor.  They have remembered that superheroes stories don’t have to be dark and hopeless.  They can actually be fun.

Star Trek Fighter Pods Series 2: Captain Archer

Enterprise is one of my favorite Trek series, so I wanted to make an Archer Fighter Pod.  Archer was also referenced in the new Star Trek reboot when Scotty talked about using Archer’s dog, Porthos, for a transporter experiment.

This Archer was made using the exclusive Kirk figure from the Star Trek Fighter Pod four pack.

Star Trek Fighter Pods Series 2: Picard

In the Kirk vs. Picard debate, I’ve always been firmly on the Picard side.  So I had to make a Picard Fighter Pod. Before the first of the Star Trek reboot movies, IDW published a prequel series (Countdown) tying the new movies into the Next Generation timeline.  In this series, Picard is the ambassador to Vulcan.  Since the Fighter Pod line is based on the the reboot movies, I decided to make this version of Picard.  Here’s how he looked in the comic:

Picard was made using a Dexter body and a Padwan Obi-Wan head from Star Wars Series 1.
