Haul-iday Report

 Hope everyone had a happy and healthy holiday/New Year. I've been catching up on other blogger's holiday hauls so I thought I'd join in, even if it's a little late.


This is not a personal photo but I wanted to find something fun to start off the post!


We'll kick it off with these awesome Adventure Time Matryoshka dolls. This is not an officially licensed product and I love it all the more for that. You can tell the artist used this actual set for inspiration because PB's pose is pretty much the same. But the "real" set only has 5 dolls while this one has 7. Finn stands around 5" tall to give you an idea how freaking tiny BMO is!

Monthly Media Recap - December 2021

 Is it just me or does 2022 sound more futuristic than 2021? Okay yes, technically, it is more in the future than 2021. Maybe it's all the 2s?


Video Games

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy - When this was announced, I was a little skeptical at only being able to play Star-Lord but now I see why they did it that way. The more of a fan you are of the comic Guardians, the more you'll enjoy this game! The narrative is great and they really captured the team dynamics. Plus, there's some really rad costumes you can unlock. I'll probably never play it again after finishing it but I don't think they could have given me a much better Guardians game.

Streaming Series

Lost in Space (S3, Netflix)
Space Family Robinson is back for their final season and boy am I going to miss these characters. I've pretty much loved everything about this from the start: exploring the unknown, alien worlds, the character interactions, a mystery that actually pays off. The show has been strong enough that they could have done without the name recognition but I guess people are more likely to watch a reboot than Original SciFi Show #32. 

Tiger King: The Doc Antle Story (Netflix)
While the original Tiger King was entertaining like a soap opera this more a crime doc about a human piece of trash. Thankfully, it's not so much of him personally but people that he victimized. My local Ren Faire popped up for maybe a minute so that was something. I'm pretty sure I saw Doc in person there years ago without knowing who he was. Even if you're into the whole Tiger King thing, you could probably skip this. 
 
This was so good! I think it's only behind WandaVision for my favorite Marvel show. I can't wait to see more of Kate Bishop in the MCU. I do have one huge question about the ending but I'm sure that will get answered in the future. If you liked the show, hit the link and grab the comic it was based on.

Just Beyond (Disney+)
I've been watching this off and on since October and really liked it. It's like an older tween cousin of Goosebumps which makes sense since they're based on graphic novels by R.L. Stine. While it's aimed at the younger crowd, most of the time I never felt like I was watching a kiddie show.

Happy Holidays

 
 
For the handful of you that read this thing on a regular basis, Happy Holidays (and thank you!). I'm taking the rest of the year off, and will be back on 1/1 with this month's media recap.

If you follow the FB page, I'll be rerunning links to old posts about some of my favorite non-Star Wars Christmas toys. If you don't follow it, here's the links.
