Most excellent greetings fellow tubular 'toon enthusiasts! - widdly air guitar- Are you ready to join me on a truly non-bogus journey- er, well, I mean a most Excellent Adventure through time? Those two most triumphantly radical dudes, Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan (and of course Rufus) are back in CBS/Fox Kids' gnarly 1990-1991 animated series Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures. I'm way stoked to introduce you to this most non-heinous edition of Best Cartoon Ever (of the Month).

I don’t examine NECA’s Predator releases too closely prior to their release because I know I will have the luxury of examining them at retail whenever they come out. It seems like local Toys R Us stores get around two shipments and I have yet to have a problem getting the figures I want (from this line, anyway – Pacific Rim is another story).

I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, but it isn’t always convenient for me to spend a whole lot of time looking at Previews and taking pictures of the comics, toys, and weird Japanese dolls within. This month it was, so this is the initial installment of what I would like to be an ongoing series but that probably won’t be.

I realize this isn’t the most timely review. This and a couple of other movie reviews have just taken me a long time to get around to.
You guys know me – I am not one to poo-poo remakes out of hand. I was excited about the RoboCop remake. I was even more excited after I saw the initial trailer:
The idea that they were trying to do something different with the new one appealed to me. I liked the idea that Murphy still knew who he was and the different spin on corporate America. I thought there was a great opportunity for updating the ideas that the original had tried to get across. Plus, modern filmmaking techniques would allow for an even more epic scope than the original.

I’m handling Needless Things’ Toy Fair coverage a little differently this year. Rather than doing the podcast and an exhaustive post recapping what I was able to glean from other websites’ coverage, I am combining the two.

Today’s post comes from a desire to write without actually wanting to write.
What I really want to do is write my Toy Fair recap, but I don’t have internet access and I certainly didn’t attend Toy Fair so I can’t. I’ve made a few notes about some of the things that I know were shown, but I can’t do my usual full write-up. Also, I’m trying to decide how to handle pictures. I don’t want to steal other sites’ pics, but posting them here with their stamp isn’t really stealing, is it? I don’t know. I just know that I tried linking to Action Figure Insider’s pics last year and it didn’t work.
Anyway, a few months ago I spent several hours copying all of the posts out of my old MySpace blog. That was where I started writing and most of those posts are not here on Needless Things. The flash drive with the original files on it got obliterated a couple of years ago, so I had to go to the page and copy the posts. This proved to be a labor-intensive method because of the way the MySpace blog loads.
