Snow Days Equal LEGO

As you may or may not know, [IGH] is based in New York City. We were scheduled for a giant, crazy, major storm this week. However, science happened and I was denied my chance to face plant myself into 3+ feet of snow. But because the city shut itself down, my day job followed suit and I got a snow day!!! 

Glorious snow day! How I missed you from my childhood. I couldnt just squander this precious gift on TV and the Internet. Why do chores when I can reenact snow days of old? In order to take full advantage of this uninterrupted playtime, I broke out my Legos.

I got this set as an event giveaway earlier in the week. And first, I set it up as the box suggested. One must follow the instructions. Sadly, this took way longer than it should. I obviously need to build more sets.

After it was all set up, I enacted the whole scene so Superman fails and Lois takes Zod down herself. Why? Because it's my snow day. Then I proudly showed it off to my roommate, who continued to do whatever grownup thing she was doing. All of this was followed by playing in the small amount of snow we got because it's still snow.

So, the next snow day you might be lucky enough to get, don't feel pressured to do grown up things. That's for the everyday pressures of life. Instead, break out your toys, sit on the floor and play.

First Glimpse at Batman vs. Robin

Just as we get two new DC animated films released, news of the next one comes out!  The next DC animated film is Batman vs Robin.  As per Warner Bros. press release:

The shadows of Gotham City are no place for a child but Damian Wayne 
is no ordinary child. Now bearing the mantle of Robin, he blazes a 
headstrong and sometimes reckless trail alongside his father, Batman. 
While investigating a crime scene, Robin encounters a mysterious figure, 
Talon, who leads him on a life-altering course through the depths of Gotham’s 
secret society, known as The Court of Owls. It’s a dangerous journey that 
will force Batman and Robin to face their most dangerous adversary, each other! 

Based on the #1 best-selling graphic novel, Batman: The Court of Owls
this action-packed caper is one that fans won’t want to miss! 

This sounds great!  The film will be released on April 14, 2015 on BluRay and DVD.  If you can't wait, watch the clip below.

Geeky Resolutions for 2015

Another year, another fun-filled geeky time. I did a lot a crazy things in 2014 but to be honest, I kinda failed at my geeky resolutions from last year. Still, I had fun and experienced new things. Plus, how many people actually complete their resolutions anyways?! Those people are way too organized.

From the life experiences of 2014, I have my list of geeky resolutions for 2015.

Holy Frak Dredd!

I've declared my Dredd love before but I'm gonna stand up and say it again! I love Dredd!!

Apparently I'm not the only one! I just got a drool-worthy Dredd announcement.  Mezco Toyz released pics of their new 1:12 Judge Dredd collectible. He looks like he stepped right off the pages of Mega City One.  I just want to hug him and then use him to beat up my Superman action figure.
