Floods, Earthquakes, Zomies? How prepping for Zombies Became The CDC’s go to

If you’re a horror or zombie fan at all, you’ve had the conversation. Where would you go, what weapons would you bring, and who would be on your zombie apocalypse team? While it seems far-fetched, planning for zombies might be the best way to get people ready for nature’s real-life worst.

It seems no matter what comes out in the world of collectibles, there is always something on the horizon that is ready to blow you away. Well that feeling of amazement came over me again recently, and it was with great joy when I found out about a certain horror collector who has turned his house into a museum of oddities and bizarre forms of entertainment.

Hiya Toys Release Awesomely Designed 1:18 Scaled Alien Figures

Collectibles. We here at Grizzly Bomb love them, and as a previous collector myself I am always on the lookout for some awesome new plastic creation that (if I cannot buy), I can at least talk about at some length. So it was pretty fantastic to come across Hiya Toys, a company that specializes in small 1:18 inch figures of some characters you may recognize.

The companies brief pretty much tells you that they are ready for business, and they’re not fooling around. This can certainly be seen in the work they have produced so far.

The Lightsaber: Science v. Fiction

An elegant weapon from a more civilized age, the lightsaber has fascinated fans and inspired scientists, but will the Jedi here on Earth ever have a chance to wield one?

The premiere of the ultimate weapon of the future (past?) in the 1977 film Star Wars changed backyard battles around the world, transforming everything from wrapping paper tubes to broom handles into glowing, vwooming, bone slicing sabers. Surely this was something science would solve by the time you reached adulthood, but alas, it was not.

Vice Press Delivers Tharglicious 2000 AD Art Prints

In the year 1977 a very special comic book appeared. Set in the future and focusing on a plethora of rich characters, it was the most futuristic comic kids of the time had ever seen. Named 2000 AD, this UK book soon spread all over the world, with its figurehead character Judge Dredd having not one, but two movies based on his exploits. Among the great stories, there was something else. Artwork. Amazing artwork which exploded from the pages you were reading.

In Addition to Zombies, Glenn Needs to Watch Out for Flyers…

We don’t touch on sports as much as I might like around here, but that’s cause things are already lacking any sort of laser focus. But this story gives us a fun crossover that involves The Walking Dead‘s Steven Yeun, and the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers…

From Princess To General: New Star Wars Canon Examines Leia’s Journey

The power of the force is stronger than ever, and the heroes of the Star Wars Saga are on fans minds as they haven’t been in decades. In honor of International Women’s Day, let us turn our thoughts to one of our bravest heroes, the rebel that started it all, Leia Organa (played by Carrie Fisher in the films). While fans well know the fate of her twin brother, her story is only just now being told.

From all corners of the Star Wars extended universe Leia’s back story is being laid out like so many puzzle pieces. Fellow Disney property Marvel Comics released a five-issue comic last summer chronicling Leia’s own adventures just after she doesn’t give Chewie a medal in the closing scene of Star Wars: A New Hope.

Win the Game Of Thrones Experience of a Lifetime

Game of Thrones has partnered up with Omaze and (RED) to help in the war against AIDS. A little while ago I wrote about Rick and Morty creators doing the same thing, and it seems the support is spreading to higher and probably more popular shows.

THIS IS AWESOME.

Not only is this a great way to help donate to a great organization, but you could win some really awesome stuff like action figures and signed posters. Check out all the possible prizes on the Omaze website. However, the prize that really takes the cake is of course the Game of Thrones Experience which will let you visit the set in Ireland… AND SIT ON THE IRON THRONE.

New Suicide Squad Statues Are Perfect Sculpts Of DC’s Super Villain Team

DC Comics have done a great job of marketing their new cinematic universe. What they have done to combat the established Marvel / Disney film brand is to give us a different tone, a darker side of the super-world. The selection of trailers, which all seem to show different elements of the movies, have made it clear they will be a bit more adult than their Marvel counterparts.

When the first Suicide Squad trailer came out it had a dark and foreboding quality to it which set it apart from the bright and boisterous Marvel movies. With the release of this latest trailer DC and Warner Brothers have added an element of humor to it, while keeping the gritty realism they are going for. And with a kicking Queen tune on full blast it’s hard not to get a kick out of this trailer.   Continue reading New Suicide Squad Statues Are Perfect Sculpts Of DC’s Super Villain Team

Grant Gustin Says Stop Pitting the Flash Against the Flash

With the upcoming DC movies slated this year, we have been promised standalone feature films from each of the Justice League characters. There have also been some speculations and rumors that we will get a brief viewing of more than the title characters in the Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice movie. The Flash has been rumored to be one of those characters.

The cinematic Flash as Barry Allen will be portrayed by Ezra Miller, as opposed to the CW’s extremely popular Flash who is portrayed by Grant Gustin. Some backlash has ensued with the casting of the cinematic Barry Allen, as we have all grown to love and adore Gustin’s take on the character. However, Gustin has taken to twitter to clear the air and try to make the situation as civil as possible by showing his support for Ezra Miller.
