PREORDER66.COM is going to NYCC 2014!

Crasis did not harm this toy.
For the fourth year in a row, Preorder66 will be attending NYCC 2014, scheduled to take place Oct. 9-12, 2014. Last year, we snagged some great exclusive news from Tamashii Nations/Bluefin and we're looking forward to meeting up with them again, along with many other companies both within and beyond the toy community.

Also, #WatchArrow because we're going to be all over Stephen Amell this year. What? No, ma'am.

"Jek Porkins" by Hasbro: Video Toy Review

Heroic Rebel or suicidal renegade? Let us consider the man who was Jek Porkins.

"Achk Med-Beq" by Hasbro: Video Toy Review

What words can do this toy justice? My words, bitches.

"Commander Spock" by Playmates: Video Toy Review

This is my first video toy review. If you like Star Trek, you should watch it. If you don't like Star Trek, you should watch it too, but you'll probably feel less awesome after watching it. I don't speak Klingon in the video. That language is beneath me. I believe in the freedoms granted under the flag of the Federation. Where was I? Ah, yes, the video:

THE COSPLAY OF SDCC 2014

Every year at every convention I go to I try to make a conscious effort to document some of the great cosplay that I see. It's difficult to capture them all, and being the person I am I tend not to bother people for pictures the best that I can. With some 130,000+ attendees each day at San Diego Comic-Con it is near impossible to capture them all, but surprisingly I was able to get pictures of more amazing costumes than I have in previous years at SDCC.

This is only a very small sampling of some of the amazing stuff I saw in San Diego this year. Sometimes you just get caught in a wave of people and don't have the ability to swim upstream and be able to get your equipment ready in time to get that shot. One that I really regret missing was a Hugh Heffner Captain Kirk mashup with a gaggle of Star Fleet bunnies surrounding him, but by the time I made it over to take their picture Kirk was ushering them on hastily.

SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES (AND HOT TOYS) ON DISPLAY AT SDCC 2014

The Sideshow Collectibles booth was one popular place to be during San Diego Comic-Con this year (well honestly it is a popular place to be every SDCC) and there were many great and impressive things on display. SDCC is one of few places where you can really see some of these impressive tributes to our favorite corners of pop culture in person. You know here at Preorder66 we are no strangers to the high end world of Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys, but these items are just out of reach for many and this is the first time some fans get the chance to see the stuff with their own eyes.

FlashBack66: STAR TREK V: THE FINAL FRONTIER (1989)

This fucking movie.
This movie was EPISODE I before there was such a thing.

STAR TREK V: THE FINAL FRONTIER is a bad movie. It has terrible comedy, the absolute worst special effects of any Star Trek film and it's just a mess of a story. And despite all of that, I still love STAR TREK V.

PREORDER66 AT SDCC 2014

I was lucky (or brave) enough to be the lone Preorder66 member to venture out West to the spectacle that is known as SDCC (short for San Diego Comic Con) this year, and I am barely recovering from the ordeal. This would be my third visit to what some consider "Geek Mecca" and it just continues to escalate to a level of insanity that I cannot even articulate. San Diego is gorgeous as it always is, but come time for SDCC it takes on a whole different persona that is just so difficult to put into words. Even as I watch events unfold throughout the week sometimes the best I can mutter as I shake my head in disbelief is "fucking Comic-Con".
