The John Cena 31" Poseable Doll from Wicked Cool Toys!

May I introduce you to the ultimate John Cena  merchandise out there. Now you may look at this picture and say, "oh that's just an action figure. Well let me point out that this figure is 31 inches tall. And you maybe thinking that all he does is stand and stare at you. Well with 9 points of articulation this guy is fully poseable. (And bonus, ladies, he's shirtless) And all that is thanks to Wicked Cool Toys

That's one big guy!

All these features take him out of the little league action figures and into the major leagues to take up residency as the Superstar of your shelf. Do you want to leave him in the box and make him a major display for your WWE love, great! Do you wanna pose him up and make him reenact your favorite Royal Rumble match? You can do that too. He works as either a display or a play thing. But one thing is sure you won't have anything in your collection as cool as this!

He's staring you down. Can you feel it?
Now the one big problem if you aren't a fan is that it's HUGE! If you're a fan it's fine and as a kid it should be awesome. His likeness is fairly accurate and he's made of strong durable plastic. This would be great for your older kids or your husband who is just young at heart. But you might find a little conundrum here. If you're not a fan you just have no space for him. If you are a fan then you...will...make...the space!!!

So if this guy does warm the cockles of your wrestlemania heart please enjoy this little guy. But the important thing to remember... you still can't see me!!!

Madame Alexander Newborn Cuddle Doll

Hello guys and Dolls! It's Dr. Fronkensteen here and I'd like to introduce you to my new fake daughter. Her name is Daphne Lee. (Shh... Dana doesn't know). She's a doll from Madame Alexander and while I may have seen some more lifelike dolls in my time I haven't seen any as cute! And while she is a bit of an investment at her $100 price tag she and the rest of her brothers and sisters at Madame Alexanders are going to have you wrapped around their little fingers!

Aren't we cute together?

Little Daphne Lee here is just as heavy as an infant with a cute little face, and adorable little newborn clothes. Her eyes just want to bore through your soul and make you love all of her cute features. In my former life in Tennessee I worked in a nursery. I held little newborns like this all the time as part of the job and when I hold her and rock her it's like I never left. And as a bonus there are no dirty diapers to change!

And while I and some other adults may like to just sit and rock with her she's also very sturdy and playroom ready. Her head, hands, and feet are made of very sturdy plastic and her body is very soft. Little Daphne will stand up to any kind of playtime punishment that toddlers and older children may put her through. If a week in a nursery is like month to a normal toy this little girl will still be cute and adorable even after your child starts going to kindergarten.

Don't look too long. You WILL fall in love with her!

But again she also almost begs to be pampered. I've been holding her and rocking her this whole time and I had to stop myself from keeping my voice down so I don't wake her. She does seem real and I want to tote her around everywhere. I even found new clothes to dress her in and make her feel at home. So in conclusion little Daphne Lee here is a perfect addition to your collection, your playroom, and your family. Be sure to treat her with lots of love and affection.

Big Hero 6 Panel and Screening Part 2 #NYCC

Hello everyone! Ready to hear the other part of DragynAlly and Dr. Fronkensteen's Big Hero 6 adventure? Well where did I leave off last time? On top of seeing some of the cast and creative team of Big Hero 6 at the panel we also found a special wristband under our seats that let us get in to see a special pre-screening of the movie before anyone else in the world ever got to. DragynAlly got us our tickets reserved and off in the taxi we went.

The last picture that I got to take before they made me turn in my phone. 

It was at the AMC Theater near Penn Station and we had to stand in a massive line but it felt very clear to me and DragynAlly that we were on the verge of seeing something awesome. When I say prescreening I mean that this was the first time the directors and principal stars got to sit down and watch the semi finished project in front of an audience. And this was a top secret thing. We had to give up our phones and tech and go through a security screening and everything. I mean they were still in the process of putting some of the finishing touches on the movie. This was a big deal.

So we sat in the dark theater with our new friend Matthew. Roy Conlin the producer stood up with the directors and cast and said a few words and the movie rolled on screen.... And what happened next...well you'll have to wait until the movie comes out on Nov. 7 until you hear our review. We'll give you a full report on Nov. 7 but just know that we love it and will explain why then.

What I can tell you is that the audience was mainly young adults and some kids. Mainly people like us. And we were all laughing at the right moments and were often finding ourselves in tears at some real touching moments. And I mean most of us were those people who waited in line for an hour or so to get into the Big Hero 6 panel earlier that morning. We were really anticipating this movie for a long time and I don't think there was anyone who came out of the screening disappointed.

I thought that the security staff was very efficient and polite and the cast and directors were kind enough to sign our posters and let us take pictures. But on top of that is the awesome feeling that we got to see a great movie before anyone else.
