Thor just wants to hang out with his work friends in “Thor: Ragnarok” teaser

It’s still a long ways until the movie is out, but Marvel Studios just released their first teaser for the upcoming “Thor: Ragnarok” film and it tells us a lot.

Some crazy stuff is going down in this video, which introduces us to the villain of this movie who takes our Norseman’s greatest weapon away, and somehow leads him into a world run by Jeff Goldblum. Really, stop reading this and just press play in the video above.

I can’t say I was too hyped for either of the previous Thor movies, but this one has a different vibe that has me interested in giving it a glance. There is definitely a different aesthetic, one that is less like a movie and more like an actual comic. A Jack Kirby comic specifically, which seasoned comic readers will be able to sniff out quickly.

“Thor: Ragnarok” will be released on November 3, 2017.

“Thor Lightning Energy Hammer” Toy Review

What kid would not want to harness the power of the Norse god of thunder? Mattel and other companies have versions of Marvel Comics’ Thor’s hammer on toy shelves around the nation, but Uncle Milton had a different idea. The Thor Lightning Energy Hammer toy from their company combines the fun of Mjolnir and science to make for a perfect balance between plaything and learning toy.

Who better to wield the enchanted hammer than Foodie Boy, one-half of the Foodie Tots kids from the Foodie Tots blog, a site devoted to teaching kids about proper nutrition and not just eating right, but eating the right way from the right places. When he is not tasting yummy cheeses that make me wish I was not lactose intolerant, Foodie Boy is a big fan of Marvel Comics superheroes. He even has his own Captain America costume, so it only made perfect sense to give him the abilities of a Norse god, too. He also really enjoyed his Spiderman Web Creator kit from Uncle Milton, but that’s a different review!

This is one of the easiest of the Uncle Milton Marvel Science products to put together and use, as you simply get it out of the very easy to remove box and start using it. The only thing it really requires from you is some batteries to get the hammer to make lights and sounds. The hammer features a magnet within it, so whenever your child finds something that is also magnetic, the two will connect just like your average horseshoe magnet. Most kids love the magic/ science of magnets, but the genius that put a magnet into Thor’s hammer deserves a raise!

Besides the hammer, this toy also comes with a base for the hammer that also lights up, a plastic coin with Thor on a metal part of it (which fits into the front of the base) to get you started picking things up with it, and a pamphlet on the science that the toy is based on – magnetism. The lights look bright and great when metal is detected, be it from the Thor coin or another source, or when it is put back in the station, glowing with a cool blue hue.

When your child swings the hammer around, it makes a swooshing noise as if you really are using the real Thor’s hammer. One of the best aspects of this particular toy is the lack of set-up and the ease of playability. The science aspect is (literally) built into it and is not a gimmick, but rather, this feel likes a toy with a fun magnetic feature that is not pushing the educational part of it (meaning most kids would not even bother playing with it again).

You can order the Uncle Milton Marvel Science – Thor Lightning Energy Hammer from Amazon.com for under $15, and is normally $25. At $25, I would have said it was a great toy to buy with no reservations, but at $15, I have to ask why you already don’t have this? This toy is great for the kids to play and learn with, and feels like something that will get a lot of longterm usage, as well. Out of all of the Uncle Milton Marvel science kits, this is the one that truly makes you feel like a superhero, and is the easiest to jump right into using and learning with. This one comes highly recommended from NerdNewsToday, as well as the Foodie Tots!

New York Toy Fair 2013: Marvel Comics and Power Rangers from “Zagtoys”

“Zagtoys”, a division of “Zag Wear” was at NY Toy Fair 2013 at the Javits Center with some tiny entries into the licensed character world.

Zag brought out a ton of mini-figures and tiny plushies from “The Avengers” movies, including Captain America, Thor, Loki, The Incredible Hulk, Hawkeye, and others. Also in the Marvel license are “Grab Zags”, which are sticky toys that you can slingshot onto things in the shape of popular comic characters, tiny vehicles that you pull back and let loose, and “Nog’n’z” which are very tiny figures akin to “Squinkies”. These figures will come in a huge variety of characters, including the characters from The Avengers and X-Men, Spiderman, Venom, The Punisher, Ghost Rider, Daredevil, Mysterio, and a ton more in a very stylized form.

“Power Rangers” will also be getting a unique figure treatment, in the form of their “Goo” line. Figures are locked inside a tube of Zag goo, which is similar to ectoplasm if any children of the ’80’s remember that.

Check out the gallery below for more photos from Zag Toys!

New York Toy Fair 2013: “Comic Images” Booth

New Jersey based company, “Comic Images” was well represented at NY Toy Fair 2013 at the Jacob Javits Center with a huge booth showing off their wide variety of plush toys coming out this year, as well as previous releases.

Some of the items up for viewing included their Marvel licensed plushies, which includes Thor, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, and Wolverine. Another hugely popular and successful line for them is their Star Wars line, which includes plush versions of your favorite vehicles like the X-Wing, Millenium Falcon, and TIE Fighter ships. You can also get some sweet characters like Yoda, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, R2-D2, Stormtroopers, Ewoks, Jawas, and Boba Fett. Also unveiled this year were some Star Wars beasts, including the Rancor, Wampa, and Taun Taun.

My personal favorite item of their booth was their new Masters of the Universe line. Featuring the classic Filmation characters in huggable form, their first wave includes He-Man, Skeletor, Trapjaw, Beastman, and Battlecat. “Comic Images” also had larger versions of their plushes, as well as backpacks with these characters and even Chewbacca’s famous saddle bag that you can wear to work. Remember, let the wookie win.
