The other night the sun set around 7:30 PM. This would make no difference in the usual course of Apollo pulling his fiery chariot across the sky, but the fact that the sun set earlier than its customary 8:30 PM descent reveals one thing: Summer is ending.

But I must admit that I look forward to Halloween. And that started this week.

TransformersAsia has announced on their Facebook page that they'll be reissuing Masterpiece Optimus Prime. This is good, as Hasbro made maybe twenty of them the first time around and most of us weren't able to get one, myself included.

Probably the biggest bombshell dropped at Comic Con last weekend was the announcement of a Godzilla sequel, hinted to include Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah.
I am hyped and scared at the same time. I don't know if these guys know what they're getting into.
