This ought to be a good seller. The Wonder Woman 2018 Calendar.


New Stuka kit from Airfix

Airfix has issued the Junkers JU87B-2/R-2 Stuka in 1/72. Should be a nice addition to the old collection.

Nice box art.

Flashes of brilliance

Posted: September 30, 2017 in Babymetal, Classic Rock, General

Japanese Metal act Mary´s Blood has their new album “Fate” on official release in Europe. When you search for Babymetal on Swedish online shop Ginza, this album pops up as a suggestion so it is clear that Babymetal has helped this outfit to get some recognition here. Mary´s Blood is all out Japanese (talking about everything including the lyrics now), and they play fairly traditional Metal. What they have that really sticks out is an insanely good guitarist named Saki. Her solos are an absolute delight and she really leave most of the competition in the dust. Good enough reason to check this band out.

Check them out live here.

Nice Justice League cover

Italian publication Ciak (October 2017). The Justice League film premieres in mid November. I will catch it on DVD later on.

Got to love Wonder Woman.

Austrian publication Flair (October 2017). This is a good cover.

Hugh Hefner is gone

Posted: September 28, 2017 in General, Magazines

Sad to hear that Hugh Hefner has passed away. To me he represented freedom. I still consider Playboy to be one of the most important publications of all time. Here he is seen on the cover of People Weekly (December 2 1974) with Barbi Benton (also seen on the cover of Playboy, May 1972).

Cryptic message

Posted: September 28, 2017 in Babymetal, Classic Rock, General

Babymetal manager Koba Metal has sent out this Fox God message. Fans are trying to figure out what it means. Su-metal will celebrate her 20th birthday on December 20 and the roman number for 20 (XX) is there for all to see. Then it gets to be a little tricky. Are we to suspect that a special concert are going to be held in Su-metal´s honor on December 23? My guess is that the answer will come at Osaka-Jo Hall on October 15.

Whatever this is, the countdown is on for the next phase of the Metal Resistance.
