Right next door to the El Capitan Theater in Los Angelas you’ll find the Disney Soda Fountain & Studio Store.  One of the major events that fans look forward to are the new pin releases that draw a lot of people.  This pin, along with four others, were sold last year to celebrate the release of The Avengers.  It is modeled after the 1968 #47 comic book and is limited to only 300 pins.  They sell for $20.00 to $30.00.  On May 11, 2013 the Disney Soda Fountain & Studio Store will be selling six different pins to commemorate Iron Man 3.  This pin set has been pre-selling for crazy prices.

The 2013 summer movie season has officially begun.  Today I saw Iron Man 3 and really enjoyed it.  You get to see Tony Stark battle a lot of demons after the events that took place during The Avengers.  He has been building one type of armor after another while thinking of different situations that they could be used for.  In the final battle we get to see all of these armors fighting together.

The Mark 39 Sub Orbital Suit “Gemini” is the only armor that I don’t remember actually seeing in the movie, yet they let us know it exists.  It would also be the only one Stark didn’t destroy.  Perhaps they’re saving it for when he goes to meet the Guardians of the Galaxy.  I love these movies and I hope Robert Downey Jr comes back to play Tony Stark.  I really can’t see anyone else playing that character.

New Addition To The Kalas Collection

This afternoon I received my Harry Kalas replica memorial statue that was a stadium giveaway last Thursday night from the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs.  It sure looks nice on my shelf.  Anyone pull the Kalas cut signature yet found in Sportkings Series E?  I need it!


Holding this thing makes me feel like I won an Oscar.

Card of the Day: Iron Man 2 2010 Upper Deck Armor Relic


Over the weekend I saw Iron Man 2 and I thought it was great!  It has a great story and terrific actors to play some of the most memorable characters from the Marvel Universe.  I love how these movies have little key elements that inform you about other characters that aren’t directly in the movie – Captain America and Thor.  The above armor card can be found in packs of 2010 Upper Deck Iron Man 2.  They are very hard to find and extremely expensive.
