I want to start by saying that I love DC Collectibles’ idea of basing lines around the designs of specific comic book creators. It’s something that the company has done all along to a certain extent. I have Batmans designed by some of my favorite artists – Dan Brereton, Tim Sale, Kelley Jones, Mike Mignola, and more. But now DCC is going one step further and putting the artists’ names front and center on the toy lines.

I wasn’t going to write a review of Fury Road because, quite frankly, I don’t know that I’m up to it. I don’t know how to talk about this thing. But I feel like I was privileged to see something special and visionary in the theater and I that it deserves my time and words. I was truly moved by the experience of watching Mad Max: Fury Road, and while I’ve seen and loved plenty of movies to varying degrees, I am not often left agape with wonder for an entire movie.
Spoiler-free version – GO. Go now. If you don’t have an outright problem with 3D, you might want to try that. I felt like this was an experience meant for 3D and I want to see it again that way.

This episode was recorded LIVE at Joelanta & The Great Atlanta Toy Convention!
Phantom Troublemaker is joined by rocker and toy aficionado Ricky Zero from Radio Cult for Needless Things’ first-ever Joelanta toy panel! The topic is licensed toys through the years.
Special thanks to Rudy Panucci of Pop Cult for not only recording video of the panel, but also being a fun and important part of the conversation!

Oh, do I love this film. It’s probably a sign of a mental disorder on my part, but I seriously love this film. It just tickles the goofiest, weirdest, and likely dumbest funny bone that I have in my body. I think it also helped screw up my personal taste in some genres of film in a way that still makes my wife suffer greatly on the occasional movie night.
