Think a plot device in your favorite B-Movie is a little far fetched? Wait until the technology catches up and you might be surprised! One of the staples of good B-Movie watching is the 1986 video classic Chopping Mall. The premise of the movie is one that has been used time and time again in sci-fi movies… Robots run amok. It’s the story of a shopping mall that hires a security company to install robots that look a little bit like what you imagine Johnny 5’s older, less successful brother would look like. On what is to be their first … Continue reading
GenCon – The funnest ‘Con we’ve been to in years When you think of board games you typically think of the traditional mass-market games like Monopoly, Sorry, and a slew of others that have been around since your creation. Like many people I grew up playing those games but moved on to some of the ‘fringe’ games like D&D and numerous titles from vendors like Avalon Hill and SSI. As I reached adulthood I branched out even further and started getting into tabletop games like Necromunda, Warhammer, and other miniatures based table-top games. Despite what I thought was a healthy … Continue reading
Is the AlienCon Gold Pass worth the price? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say, “Meh.” #AlienCon is a convention for fans of the show “Ancient Aliens” and it’s stars. In June of 2018 it was held in Pasadena. Here are my afterthoughts about the show and it’s value. The first AlienCon was held in the Bay Area of Northern California. At the time we really wanted to go but since it was the first year, we decided to wait it out and let them work out the kinks. Plus the timing was just a little too close to Phoenix Comic Fest, or … Continue reading
A sad day for B-Movie and Mystery Science Theater 3000 fans. Bruce J. Mitchell, who played Zap Rowsdower in the movie The Final Sacrifice, has sadly passed away. He did an interview a while back and talked about his experience during the making of the movie. He seemed like a really nice guy who appreciated his opportunity to be in a movie and still be known for it to this day thanks to a new generation finding this gem on such shows as MST3K. His service will be held at the Third Zeox Church in Manitoba.
What an awesome time! So many people came by our booth to chat and share some thoughts, and for that we say Thank You! A special thanks to our old friends that visit us year after year! We had a Mystery Science Theater 3000 trivia contest and was amazed that not only are there people with as much silly MST3K facts in their head as I have, but even more! We saw some great costumes, great T-Shirts, and of course great people. Thanks again and we will see you all at Phoenix Comi… Fan… Pop… a-thon or whatever the hell … Continue reading

In late 2010, AMC announced a new and exciting Zombie apocalypse series called The Walking Dead. What made this one different was that it was going to be based on the popular comic / graphic novel series of the same name. The series was initially set to be a mini-series, but more episodes and seasons were ordered. As the series progressed, it went through a slew of Producers as well as a trickling of dissatisfaction among hardcore fans because the series did not mirror the original comic story-line and characters. The heads of the show claim that the comic is … Continue reading

First, a little bit of background. Way back when the Kickstarter campaign started and the thought of bringing back MST3K was first tossed about, some expressed concern that the new show was going to try and be an extension of the old tried and true format with characters that were going to be VERY hard to replace. When Joel announced the characters and the actors that were going to play them, the concern grew. It would be hard to continue with the existing line-up of Crow, Servo, Forrester, Frank, and the rest given the impact the original players left when … Continue reading
When it comes to Mystery Science Theater figures, there aren’t very many. You have to look to the fans that have created everything from Amigurumi dolls to headboards. Well, no longer… At least if there are enough votes cast for LEGO to create a Mystery Science Theater set that includes the bots, the hosts and protagonists, the famous hallway sequence, and the projection room. If you would like to see this idea come to fruition, go to the LEGO Ideas web page and cast your vote!
