I just wanted to let you all know that I am on Deviantart.com! I set up a profile on there a few months ago and have just now uploaded a couple of pictures. I'm still getting use to it, so any tips are welcome. Leave them below or message me on deviantart. See you there!
Well. When I first saw the Iron Man 3 Super Hero Squad releases from Hasbro I was very disappointed. They were all repaints already existing figure. New sculpts from this line have been very hard to come by in the last few years. We may have been treated to one or two from the waves that had been released, but we at LEAST got one or two.
Not so for Iron Man 3. All repaints. Every single one.
Hello Heroes! Posted on the Funko Facebook page is a prototype of DC Comics super villain Darkseid!
"Here's a sneak peek at at upcoming Pop that we're sure you DC fans are going to love!"
Oh yes, I do love this figure already. I'm always happy to have more villains in my collection, LOL. Get ready Justice League, Darkseid is coming! I'll have more info on the release date and hopefully pictures of the finished product soon!
Now for the big question. What do you think of Darkseid? Leave a comment below or hit me up via Twitter.
Hello Heroes! It's been awhile since I posted some video reviews. I have been really busy and have not had a chance to get them edited. But I wanted to let you know I have more reviews coming soon, including a look at the Game of Thrones series of POP vinyl figures from Funko. So keep hanging out here, there is loads more to come.

I have some awesome news! My friends at Titan Merchandise have announced another installment in their line of Hammer Films Masterpiece Collection Maxi Bust. These incredible collectibles are about 8 inches tall and feature the iconic characters of Hammer Films. The latest one making it's debut in November is the evil Dr. Frankenstein as played by Horror superstar Peter Cushing.
Here is info from the bust's description: British movie actor Peter Cushing became a legendary icon of horror playing Baron Von Frankenstein in 1957's timeless classic The Curse of Frankenstein.
This amazingly-detailed 8" maxi-bust painstakingly recreates the homicidal genius of Cushing's visionary-but-sociopathic man of science. Every detail of Von Frankenstein's cold brilliance - from bell jar to test tube to lab coat - is captured in this exquisitely-sculpted, intricately-detailed polystone maxi-bust standing 8” tall, 5” wide and 5” deep.
Here are some pictures:
I have the first three that were released Christopher Lee as Dracula, Peter Cushing as Van Helsing and Ingrid Pitt as Countess Dracula. These are some of my favorite pieces of my collection. They are simply brilliant. I actually reviewed them all and you can see the videos on my Youtube page HERE.
I'll definitely add this one to my collection. I really look forward to more of these. Are you going to be picking up this Hammer Films collectible? Let me know by leaving a comment below or on Twitter.
And here is one of my video reviews to start you off with. I take a look at the Dracula Christopher Lee one:
Ok, so you have seen Iron Man 3 two or three times already and want to see something completely different...I may have something for you.
I wanted to let you know that I am in a new movie that is in select theaters and available via iTunes, called Aroused.
It's a documentary about my day job. I'm sure some of you already know that I am an adult actress and director.
Being an adult actress is not something I talk too much about here. Mainly because this blog, cosplay, superheroes and comic books...this is something I do for fun in my personal time. And I try to keep the two worlds separate.
This documentary by acclaimed photographer Deborah Anderson, however, is something unique. It goes behind the scenes to talk to women in adult and gets to know them and why they do what they do. Some of you may find this interesting; to learn that aspect of who I am.
Here is a synopsis of the movie: Capturing the making of a high end photographic coffee table book shot by photographer Deborah Anderson, The Aroused Project is an introspective documentary diving into the lives of sixteen of the top pornographic actresses of our time.
Today is New Comic Book day! Every week (kinda) I choose five covers from this weeks new comic book releases that I think are awesome, attention grabbing or super sexy. So which comics will I be looking forward to this week?
Fearless Defenders #4 - Marvel Comics Cover Artist: Mark Brooks What a brilliant cover. Every issue of Fearless Defenders has had a great cover, and this one is no exception. It's fun and creative, I love it. We get Valkyrie as a paper doll. She comes with various accessories, even an adorable Thor doll. I wonder if anyone actually cuts this figure off the cover of the magazine and uses it. That would be brilliant. Send pics if you do.
Synopsis: Come for the banter, stay for the surprises! Everything Valkyrie knows about her origin is wrong! And Caroline LeFay unleashes her Doom Maidens upon the world!
Grimm Fairy Tales Robyn Hood Wanted #1 - Zenescope Cover by: Artgerm Zenescope's own emerald archer is back and looking hot. Robyn Hood is ready for action on this cover and I'm ready for it.
Synopsis: Robyn Hood returns in this new, epic story arc! As a mysterious villain calling himself "the Sheriff" begins to terrorize Nottingham, the people that Robyn once liberated are again in need of her help. But with the police searching for her on Earth, Robyn has her own problems. Can Robyn rise up and be the hero that Nottingham needs, or will she be forced to face the consequences of her own actions? Find out in the sequel to the fan favorite series, Robyn Hood: Wanted!
Katana #4 - DC Comics Cover by: Juan Jose Ryp This comic has really been catching my attention. I don't know much of Katana or her history, but I want to find out about her and this cover art really does reel me in.
Synopsis: Devastated by the horrifying aftermath of last issue’s battle with Killer Croc, Katana struggles to set things right against impossible odds!
Red Sonja Annual #4 - Dynamite Comics Cover: Jose Malaga Wow. This woman must get chilly with her booty out like that on cold night, LOL. The "She-Devil With A Sword" is caught by surprise standing over a body as she holds her bloody sword. What's happened? You'll have to pick up the issue to find out!
Synopsis: The She-Devil with a Sword... captured and infected by the bite of a loathsome creature of the night! Offered as a human sacrifice to the vampire's dark god, Red Sonja must defeat both monster and its master... or be transformed into a bloodthirsty predator herself!
Uncanny Avengers #8 - Marvel Comics Cover Artist: Maurilio Manara Look at this beautiful cover by Maurilio Manara. The Wasp's long legs and arching form dominate this cover. I don't know whose reaching for her but I guess I'll have to pick up the issue to find out. Still a very nice cover.
Synopsis: Xavier is dead, now begins the age of The Apocalypse Twins! Now begins Ragnar?k and it’s all Thor’s fault!S.W.O.R.D. Peak station is attacked by Apocalypse’s Ship! A Celestial’s fate so shocking, so impossible, it will rock the Marvel Universe to its core.This is it, Ragnar?k is now and not even the Uncanny Avengers can hold it back!

Today is Free Comic Book Day! Yeah! I went around to some of the local comic book stores to have a bit of a poke about and came back with some lovely goodies.
The first store I went to DJ Universal in Studio City, but they only had a couple of titles that I didn't fancy much. But, I was recognised while there, LOL.
Then I made my way over Comic Smash also in Studio City. There they had some cool cosplayers. They gave me a bag of that contained a Dark Horse and Image FCBD sampler. Since I was there and they had a nice sale going on, I picked up some more cool collectibles. I got some issues of the Ame-Comi series from DC. An Ame-Comi Hawkgirl statue and a Dr.Doom POP! vinyl figure.
I posted a little clip of it on Vine. Have a look!
You can follow me on vine for more videos or twitter. So, did you get any goodies on Free Comic Book Day?
Did you see my cosplay at Wondercon this year? One of the days I went as one of the sexiest comic book characters ever to be on TV, Catwoman - the Julie Newmar version. Meow! Truly one of my favourites.
Coincidentally, this year there is going to be a large amount of merchandise from the Batman TV show coming out as licensing has been sorted out. I'm looking forward to all the cool collectibles, especially the action figures from Mattel.
Catwoman from the six inch line of figures has been finally revealed and it looks incredible! Have a look:
The Julie Newmar Catwoman figure does not come out until later this year, but I cant express just how excited I am about this one. Day one buy for me!
And if you missed my Wondercon Cosplay....Here is a video!
