Honestly...that seems like a lengthy run given how many "the comic industry is in trouble, anybody have ideas on what we can do" panels I've seen at comic con since the mid 90s. It was a great publication though, and I always enjoyed their toy column etc.

I eagerly anticipated the toy columns every month. That was my source for upcoming stuff for so long.

ToyFare Theater was my favorite, though. I still go back and read those occasionally.

Ah man yeah those were definitely great. Another toy magazine, or one specifically for toys, was out around the same time I think....was it tomart? That was practically porn for me.

Tomart's and Lee's both got murdered by ToyFare, which then got murdered by the internet.

Man this is bringing stuff back harder than some of the "classic rock" my kids have discovered. Toyfare was cool, aside from their twisted mego theater (which was the best part to me, so it was better than simply 'cool'), but Tomart was my favorite I think. I had to look up Lee's but definitely read some of those as well. Tomart I actually had a subscription for, heh.

Sorry, I forgot the "Twisted" part of my reference. Twisted ToyFare Theater.

Yeah, that was great stuff. And I think the first time, and possibly still the best, I'd seen someone do essentially comic strips with a ridiculous tone using action figures. And custom ones at that! Seth Green had to have been a fan as well.

Seth had a custom-figure appearance in it, iirc. That all obviously lead to Robot Chicken.

Observations about Hulk's arm with references to Shang Chi and Multiverse of Madness.
Spoiler! :
In Shang Chi, with his arm in a sling, Banner also has a device on his other arm with a glowing green light. It's the exact same kind of light as the cuffs they use on Strange in MOM to prevent him from using powers. Could that be a way to depower Hulk to heal that arm and we see the aftermath in She Hulk?

I truly want to love this, but man, She Hulk looks jarringly bad at times and Titania looks like a man in drag with a terrible wig in that shot. Hell, the new shots of Abomination looked bad. Frog Man looked awesome, though!

I'm hoping the CG is still getting improved, because it just looks bad to me right now.

We all know they completely stop work on a project when they drop the first trailer so there's no hope for the CGI to get any better. NONE!!! IT'S RUINED FOREVER!!!!

I have to second this. I also strive to maintain first impressions and never reevaluate things or especially people over time. Makes life better.

Nope. They said all the CGI was completely done and they are just waiting to release it.
