William Shatner doesn’t understand Feminism

A fan at Big Apple Comic Con 2019 was dressed as a handmaiden from Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”, and was part of the audience at the William Shatner panel. While asking a question during this panel, Shatner asked who she was dressed as, which led to a brief explanation of what the series is about.

This ultimately led to Shatner going off on a tangent about how he and his generation do not understand modern feminism.

Eventually, the audience member was able to ask her question, but you can hear that in our full panel video.

William Shatner talks “Invasion Iowa” docu-series

A fan at Big Apple Comic Con 2019 asked William Shatner about Riverside, Iowa, where Captain Kirk originates from in the original Star Trek series.

This led Shatner to reminisce about his time working on the “Invasion Iowa” docu-series, where he and a film crew invaded this town to film a fictional sci-fi movie while the town had no idea they were the ones actually being filmed.

Mego To Reveal 14-inch Line Of “Star Trek” Figures At NY Toy Fair 2019

Trekkies and Trekkers, check out this piece of news. Later this month at NY Toy Fair 2019, Mego Corp. will reveal a new larger-scale line of Star Trek figures!

The news broke exclusively via The MegoMuseum this morning, where we learned Marty Abrams and his toy company will debut a series of 14″ figures at Toy Fair.

Currently, Mego produces 8″ figures of characters from the original 1960’s Star Trek series, and has so far made much of the bridge crew along with some aliens, as well as Mirror universe versions of Kirk, Spock, Uhura and Sulu.

One can hope that adding this scale to their portfolio may also mean expanding the Star Trek universe, and bringing us Mego figures from other shows. Imagine a Mego Picard, Sisko, Janeway or Archer – or even a Michael Burnham!

Earlier this week, Mego announced they would unveil a new line of action figures based on superheroes from Stan Lee’s vault, in association with Pow! Entertainment.

With the clock ticking down day one of Toy Fair, we will have to have a little more patience for what Mego shows off for this line, along with their other showings.

During the initial relaunch of the company, the 14″ figures have so far purely been DC characters like Batman, Wonder Woman, and The Joker to name a few.

Interested in more Mego? Check out our extensive interview with Marty Abrams from last Summer when the company relaunched.
