Nightmare Moon and Friends

I have been to Toys ‘R Us.

And they actually had the “Favorite Collection: Featuring Nightmare Moon”

I may have squeaked.

You know what that means? Photo party. That’s right. *puts on DJ Pon-3’s glasses* Let’s rock this.

Cadance and Shining Armor

Ha ha. You thought this would be from the Nightmare Moon set, didn’t you? But no. I started with this.

Okay. So that’s not from the set. Doesn’t matter. I’m not even showing you all the photos. XD Just the ones that were my favorites. And the above I actually bought at Target like three weeks ago. I just forgot to show them off. Love them. Loved the Royal Wedding. Uh. And stuff.


Fooled you again! XD I bought Rarity like three weeks ago.

Rarity is the best pony.

Nightmare Moon

Nightmare Moon is awesome. She needs so much more screentime. Not, Luna. Nightmare Moon.

I bought the entire Favorites Collection for this figure. You don’t even know how much I freaked when I saw the first few previews like a year ago. Love the mold for her, and just…I love this figure.

Pose It Nightmare Moon

She can work it.

More Nightmare Moon. I love the glitter on her Cutie Mark. XD

Nightmare Moon and Trixie

Two of the show’s villains! :D My Little Pony has those you know.

Trixie Lulamoon. What’s really fun is I actually bought her separately as a gift for a friend. XD Now I’ve got my own. Not that I like her. I don’t hate Trixie, but she wasn’t exactly my fav either. Love her Cutie Mark though.

Vinyl Scratch aka DJ Pon-3

I love how her glasses don’t fit properly in the little eye indents.

It says something about Hasbro that this figure exists. A pony that got two seconds of screen time took off as a fan favorite. And now it has a figure. Crazy. XD

Blackarachnia vs Nightmare Moon

Blackarachnia vs Nightmare Moon

Uh oh. My Blackarachnia figure doesn’t like that she’s no longer the only bad girl on my desk. She may have to assert her authority.

Compromise Optimus and the ladies.

Optimus put his ladies in line. Respect.

Optimus Prime decided compromise was in order. He always wanted a pony anyway.

Yes. I still have Optimus and Blackarachnia (Elita-1 version!) snuggling. I SHALL PAIR THEM FOREVER.

Thank you for yet another toy photo session. They bring me great joy whether people read this or not. :3

Fangirl #19 – Mixed Bag

Bit of a mix this week as I’m banning myself from buying any new comics until I get my second draft to an editor…

Didn’t stop me from procrastinating in other ways! :D And you’ll see my new format–disorganization away! :D Bold Title..then what I think about it–go!

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

I am totally all over the blind bags being on sale. Iv’e gone a little nuts with them. (They are so cute.) Thankfully, by bag 16 or so, I had a Rarity, an Applejack and a Fluttershy–so for the most part, now they’re just ‘I see it so I support it’ sort of buys. XD

But speaking of the cartoon–Today’s episode? Applejacks’ episode, “The Last Roundup” –man was that a great episode. I know everyone’s going crazy about the Derpy thing (I too almost did a spit take hearing that was made canon), but I really liked the main Applejack story, too. Those bits on the cherry farm were hilarious.

And you know, Applejack is great.

Hetalia: Season 3

Man I love this show. So glad I pre-ordered the DVDs from Funimation. *hugs them* I watched the entire third season in a row…and then realized there was a fourth one. *didn’t realize that all of World Series was two seasons, not one*

Love that stuff. And I do like the English dub–it’s funny in a different way from the original dialogue so it’s like getting two great shows in one! :D


This is one of those series where I wait a few months and just catch up with a bunch of episodes at once. (Like right now).

It’s still funny, and Furuichi is getting a lot of screen time in the 40’s–which is amazing. (He is my favorite character. <3)

The only downfall is it makes me want to break out my Yu Yu Hakusho DVDs. XD

Anime in General

Seriously. If you like anime and don’t have an account at Funimation or Crunchyroll or both–you’re missing out. They’ve pretty much made fan subs obsolete AND you get to support all your favorite shows. Do this. If you support them, maybe they’ll get their hands on all the great ADV & Bandai shows that aren’t around anymore. T_T

Deathstroke #5

Cristoph got a decent send off, and that’s all I can ask for. *sniff* Good issue.

Comics in General

It is the year of the Liefeld for me–discovered him with Hawk & Dove, and now he’s everywhere. Not a bad thing–he’s taking over for Deathstroke (I read that anyway), and I’m gaining interest in Hawkman now that he’s taking over for that. Should be fun. :D


Also–I can’t wait for my Transformers Prime Season 1 box set to show up. But that’s in march.


Fangirl #18 – TF Prime is Awesome

I’ve been so busy editing, I haven’t had time for much fan action lately. But I did sneak in one movie during my editing spree:

Transfomers Prime: Darkness Rising

I ordered the box set for Transformers Prime a while ago, but it hasn’t arrived yet. So when I saw Darkness Rising at Wal-Mart for cheap, I figured “why not?”

It’s the 5 episode mini-series packaged together as a movie and It. Is. Awesome. Seriously, I loved this thing. It was everything I loved about Transformers G1 and Animated mixed together. This series gets way too much hate from the Pony crowd. It’s good–really, really good.

Plus, the voice acting is superb. Cullen is back as Prime, and Welker as Megatron. That can’t go wrong no matter how you shake it. The star player so far? Steve Blum as Starscream. That’s right–Roger Smith aka Spike Spiegal aka Kazuma in S-CRY-D as Star-freaking-scream.

And it works.

I had to see it to believe it. And man does it work.

Anyway. Love it, and I can’t wait to get my season 1 box set so I can drool over Knock Out and Breakdown, too.

Oh, I only have one issue with the series–that blue motorcycle? I call her Chromia in my head. Don’t get me wrong, I love her character. She’s awesome. She’s kick-ass. I pair her with Jack like you wouldn’t believe. But she’s not Arcee. Not my G1 Arcee, anyway. Not even the Animated one. No–that chick is Chromia. *stands firm*


I’m really behind on my comics. I think I’ve bought them but haven’t gotten around to reading them. I may or may not mention them unless they really wow me. XD

But there’s only one fangirl bit from me that I’m repeating from a plea over at WaM word for word:

DC canceled Hawk and Dove — the 8th issue will be its last. This makes Liliy very upset. Very, very, upset. Show DC we still want to see them! (Okay me, but I’m already buying their comics and it hasn’t done anything!) If it even looks remotely interesting, and you read comics anyway, buy an issue. Please? *holds hands clasped up in front of her* I hate to play this game with my readers, but I really don’t want Hawk & Dove to go away. XD

The 1980’s series first five comics & the 2011 reboot are both on Comixlogy for $1.99 an issue!!  …at the very least maybe Comixology & DC will post the rest of the old series if those sell well enough up to the cancelation.

End message.

Now for the more fangirl version:


I’m good now.

They also canceled Static Shock, which is also as disappointing. I can see why though, the current storyline is confusing and I’m not getting into it no matter how much I like the characters. I was even getting attached to his sisters even though I had no idea what was going on. Honestly, I was hoping for the series to get past this arc and then things would look up, but I guess it won’t get that chance.

I bet Static gets shipped over to Teen Titans again. XD

Liliy is a Fangirl #16

Hey! Back from vacation and ready and rarin’ to go! Long one today! :D Though I really need to find a better way to organize some of these…I might try using lists or something. We’ll see–but for now, the usual:


Once Upon a Brother’s Grimm:

Dean Jones and Paul Sand Singing

Dean Jones singing makes me ridiculously happy.

If you haven’t heard of this movie, it came out in 1977 and stars Dean Jones & Paul Sand. When I was little, I ate this movie up. You don’t even understand. So, during a WaM ustream, the topic of fairy tales came up and then Grimm stories and this movie came back to the front of my mind like smack to the face.  So I checked Amazon and realized it had a DVD release. Joy came.

Teri Garr as the Frog Princess

Teri Garr as the Frog Princess (One of my Dad's favorite actresses!)

I watched it twice in a row. There’s just something amazing about a cheesy, funny musical. It makes me laugh and even the old special effects have their own charm. I forgot how much fun that little fuzzy line around obvious blue screen effects could be.

Why do I really love it, though? Easy. Jones & Sand are hysterical. The rest of the cast is hysterical (even better–my mother walked in during the movie and recognized all the actors, since they were all big stars when she was in high school). The songs are ridiculously catchy and the costume design is fabulous (No, seriously–I’ve remembered the costumes from this movie even from when I was little watching on my recorded VHS tapes–they’re amazing). I even have a love for the very obvious stage sets.

The movie’s charming and I love it. If you can get a copy of the DVD I highly recommend it. :D

South Park: Yeah, so I’m really, really behind the curve- but I finally saw South Park: Bigger, Longer & UnCut. Loved it. That is all.


South Park: I’ve been on a South Park Binge lately. Not denying it. I love Kyle, Stan & Kenny. That is all…again.


So, trying to sit down and sort out my comics spending. So I might actually start dropping and picking up series depending how much I want to read them. I caught up today with the ones I cared about…and I finally get to start listing issue numbers since…I’m behind on a few series. Yay!

Aquaman #3: Mera & Arthur are still one of the greatest super hero power couples ever. Even when they’re just sitting around listening to someone talk about a creature from beneath the deep. Winning line of the issue? “He lives in a lighthouse.”

Dick and Bruce Quip

Why do I love you in every comic but your own, Dick? WHY?

Batman #4: Still by far one of the best series of the new DC 52. The art is fantastic and the Owl themed villain is getting more and more interesting. I wasn’t all that interested in Talon at first, but he’s starting to grow on me.

I also happen to love how Dick Grayson has been portrayed in this series. He always gets a chuckle from me.

The best part of this issue though (aside from the riddle at the end), was the flash back to young Bruce. Seriously man, Bitty!Bruce was hardcore. Such a little dedicated cutie. XD

Catwoman #4: The last page won me over. The issue was a little slow, mostly background and catching up–but the last few pages introducing a new Meta antagonist and well… Selina sums it up with “Crap.”

Flash #3: The artwork continues to be the highlight of this series. Love it. Little too much going on in this issue though, I found myself skimming a bit. Though, it does kind of makes sense considering Flash himself has a million things going on at once. So, it sort of works.

Justice League Dark #3: I have no idea who most of these people are save for Zatana and Deadman due to his connection to Dove. Makes for fun reading. XD

Roy and Jason in a Bar

I love them. So much. They may replace Tim & Conner as my favorite DC Bromance.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #4: Okay. This series is still rocking my world. Love it. Love it. Love it. Roy and Jason are totally ruling their bromance all over the place and I love it. (Have I mentioned I love this series?) Roy Harper is still stealing the show though. His little intro about being an alcoholic and Jason being his only friend were endearing and made me love him more. Jason is still being a total bad ass & Starfire? She’s still awesome. Starfire vs Crux was fun and I’m looking forward for them to continue.

The winning moment of the issue had to be Roy’s latest nickname for Jason: “Jaybird” That is win. So much win. <3

Supergirl and Mr. Tycho

I love you Mr. Tycho. I hope you and Supergirl clash for many issues to come.

Supergirl #4: This series is the only one competing with Hawk & Dove and Red Hood. I love it. I’ve never been this big of a fan of Supergirl in my life.

And Mr. Tycho is definitely one of the best villains to come into the DC. If he existed before, I will need to look him up.

But no, Kara was kicking some butt all over the place and there was a heartfelt moment here or there with Tycho’s mooks. I really can’t wait for the next issue and to see if Kara gets back together with Superman. Favorite line? It’s in the image to your left: “…that’s gonna be expensive.”

Teen Titans #3 & #4: I was going to stay a week behind on this series, but it’s so tied in with  Superboy I felt like I needed to catch up.

Awesome. These two issues were way better than the first two–way more action was happening that was interesting. I loved Bart’s two page spread of his speeding around, as well as Tim doing some great undercover work. The group’s finally an item and we’re treated to some awesome Young Justice (the 90’s series, not the new one) bickering. It’s great.

And we’ve finally got the last new member: Miguel aka Bunker. He is so much fun. XD

Miguel and Tim

Miguel and Tim -- Gotta' love the happy ones...even if he probably is scaring Tim.

I have a feeling I’m going to love Miguel. He’s well…he’s happy–which is something this group needs. Plus, I have serious weakness for gratuitous Spanish. Actually, I’m liking all of the new guys: Skitter is fun now that she’s talking & Solstice is spunky.

Plus, Bart and Tim are back together. Finally. Bart and Tim bickering was great. When Bart steals Tim’s clothing at the end of issue #4 I was dying of laughter.

All we need now is Superboy on board and I’ll get my power trio back. Young Justice made me adore the Conner/Tim/Bart trio and it needs to going again. *waits patiently for Superboy vs Wondergirl to come to a close*

And I think that wraps things up. I’m sure you’ve noticed I’ve dropped Superman & Nightwing…I’ll get back to them…Eventually.

Liliy Is A Fangirl #15

Today’s review is full of spoilers everywhere for just about everything. I also had to write this pretty quick, so expect a typo or two. Fair warning. XD


Watch this:

Did you watch it? Good.


SQUEE. That was flippin’ GRIMLOCK. 

War for Cybertron is quite possibly one of the best games I’ve ever played, and it has everything to do with the fact it is FULL of Transformers stuff from every single generation all merged together in this true to the Transformers feeling game of awesome. *breathes* And then I see the trailer for the sequel and it’s just gone baby. I’m on the verge of pre-ordering a game that’s over a year out because-damn.

That was Bruticus in the trailer. Bruticus! And Grimlock. And…and…the song! That I bought! And. I can’t even breathe. I squealed like a little girl who was just got told she was visiting Cinderella’s Castle (okay, so maybe that was just me–but I freaking love the Disney Princesses).

I can not wait for this game. Expect me to be playing through War of Cybertron a few more times this year. XD


Deathstroke #4: I don’t even think I can comment on the entire issue just because of the last scene. *twitch* But I’ll give it a go.

Cristoph Feels Old

He's got a point, Slade.

So we start out with Slade giving orders, blah blah blah, and Cristoph points out that he’s not in his twenty’s anymore and is having a hard time keeping up. It helped reinforce that Cristoph has been my favorite character since this series started, if only because he knows Slade well enough that he can well, gripe to him. How many people do you know who could complain and whine after seeing Slade kill a dozen people with ease on a highway, or pull off the jail thing at the beginning of this one?

And, to reinforce that even further, Slade takes it pretty well and gives Cristoph some time off. Literally, not time off as in ‘you’re dead,’ but time off that shows concern & promises a real, relaxing vacation. Awesome all around.

Slade Gives Cristoph Time Off

Yeah, I'd be asking that too, Cristoph.

Slade visits Peabody and finds out that the thing in the box is his son Grant’s mask & Grant might be alive and blah blah blah, Slade goes off to fight some Blackhawks for info. The original Ravager coming back? I can’t tell what I feel about that. All I know is if Grant comes back, we better get Joseph, too–because it would be a whole lot of fun to get the whole Wilson clan back together.

And then this happens:

Hello Cristoph


After this scene, the guest proceeds to stab Cristoph in the eye with a knife. He dies (presumedly). Why. WHY!? It’s only been four issues! Why is my favorite character dying already!? I know it’s going to happen eventually because that always happens to my favorite character but why now? *sobs*

The only way I will accept this is if Slade pitches a fit over Cristoph’s death. And I don’t mean a little ‘Oh, they’ll pay for messing with my stuff,’ I mean a full out ‘They killed one of my only friends and I’m going to hunt them down one by one!’ fury. *breathes*

Or he could have survived and now gets a nice eye patch to match Slade and the rest of the one-eyed Wilson clan. I’ll work with either.

Superboy #4: There was an issue of Superboy this week? XD

Ha ha, no. It was a calm reflective issue over Superboy taking a day off to cause trouble around the city while he thought about himself. Sort of the slow burn that Supergirl’s been up to lately, so it was nice.

I will say one thing though, the art in this issue went straight through the roof. Flat out gorgeous in every panel. R.B. Silva, Rob Lean & Richard Horie seriously outdid themselves. Awesome combination of players to create some of the prettiest artwork I’ve seen yet in the DC 52.

Superboy Fight

Love it.

The Power of Shazam #6-12: This series really picked up. Loved it. XD I might give The Power of Shazam it’s own little plug sometime. There’s a lot to cover. (*cough* Black Adam *cough*)

And that’s it for me. XD
