I’m going to swing over into the boss’s territory today and cover a little bit of 2017 toy news. It’s a subject I don’t dive into very often, but, hey, it’s LEGO and I’m a LEGO kind of guy. It’s one of the few toys that really had an impact on me as a child, and it’s really the only toyline I still regularly purchase anything from for myself to this day. Plus, I have kids who have become LEGO fans, so I can always excuse the larger purchases to my wife as something for the wee ones to enjoy.

Gunn at SDCC

James Gunn was asked in a Q&A about whether he would be attending San Diego Comic-Con. His response was that he likely wouldn’t be since he would only be going if Marvel sent him, and that this was unlikely as Marvel was not going to SDCC this year. To say the online geek community reaction was rather seismic is a bit of an understatement.
