Wile E. Coyote vs StarScream

When are residential british guy aka Jim Sterling mentioned this fight in the latest Podtoid it for some odd reason got to me really thinking about this and have come up with an answer to this battle but first the specifics of the fight.

The Specifics
It's Wile E. Coyote. If you don't who he is your either really young or have lived under a rock since you were born. He has brought into this battle with absolutely nothing.


StarScream is well...StarScream he comes into this battle with everything that is currently attached to him and can transform at any time to his stealth jet plane.

Now I'm going to presume this battle takes place in a normal terrain with nothing to special about it.

The Actual Battle
Now I know what you guys are thinking "StarScream would own the shit out of that stupid Coyote lol" but that is certainly not the case.

As you can see in this clip and possibly millions of others out there. Wile E Coyote simply does not die...EVER. He could be smashed, splatted, impaled, anything at all and come back with not a scratch on him. This animal could probably beat Wolverine in coming back to life. So you see as much as Star Scream shoots at him, punches him, stomps on him. Wile will just keep on getting back up and after a while Star Scream will go "Screw this" and leave the fight. Thus handing the victory to Wile E Coyote.

Please Comment/argue as you wish.   read

Stuck in a Toybox #2: 8-bit Simon Belmont

I just got this in the mail from chad winning that quiz so I figured I would give it a review since I really haven't done anything here in about a week or so.

Now this figure was only sold at San Diego Comic-con which makes it somewhat rare and goes for about $20 on amazon. The main flaw this figure is that it isn't a figure at all. It's essentially a immovable block. It does not move, has no accessories, nothing. The cool thing about it is that it's completely 3-D 8-bit figure based off sprites of Simon running from the first Castlevania game.

Ain't nothin goin to break his stride!

The designers or whatever you want to call them also detailed the front and back of this figure.

The other good thing about this figure is the packaging.

Which is a recreation of the first stage of the game. (The box says Stage 3 but they are wrong.)

The last thing I want to mention is the size of this figure which is really, really small.

Apocalypse could use Simon as a kick-ball.

This figure can fit in your pocket, or anywhere honestly. It's not like your going to have to make any shelf-space for this.


This is not a figure, this a 8-bit 3-d block of a Castlevania character. Despite the good things about it this is not a figure you should buy unless your a castlevania nut but even then there are better action figures out there
that are much more worth your time and money.

I hope you enjoyed and I promise I would make another review as soon as time allows.   read

Stuck in a ToyBox #1: Marvel Legends Iron Fist!

Before I began let me just say please cut me some slack here this is my first toy review so I don't know if I'm doing this right. If you have criticism/comments please tell and I will try to change it.



Look at him in all his punching glory.

Iron Fist was at first a lesser known martial artist that no one really cared for but he has now gone onto to do great things in the marvel universe. His first big thing was being in Heroes for Hire with Luke Cage, he then became Daredevil for a time to convince people that Daredevil wasn't Matt Murdock. More recently he has been with the New Avengers with his buddy Luke Cage who is the leader and several other big names like Spider-man, Wolverine, Doctor Strange and others. Yes, this martial artist character has gone from a pop culture trend to a popular A-list marvel character.

Now on to the actual review.

Just because the other pic didn't get a good view of his face.

Let's begin with the articulation which is basically every part where he moves. Let's see his head moves, his hands, arms, shoulders, and elbows all move. The only problem with the hands is that the fingers barley move but that's no big deal. He has articulation at the legs, knees and feet also his "slippers. Also his waist and stomach move.

The sculpt if very cool and has a lot of detail everything from the black dragon on his chest to his chest muscles are very well done. The only thing I don't like is the flap on the end of his hood is not sticking out and is stuck inside the collar.

Fire is always good

As you can see Iron Fist comes with 2 accessories both of which show Iron Fist charging his chi and using his "Iron Fist" Both of which are made for a specific hand (Top goes on the right, bottom goes on the left.) The only thing I don't like about them is how they don't stay on.

Except in this picture!

The other thing Iron Fist comes with since he is part of the Apocalypse's Build a figure he comes with the big blue's right leg which is downright huge.


I honestly want to complete this series just to see how big Apocalypse is going to be because judging by the size of his foot he is going to very tall. I mean come on the foot is bigger then Iron Fist himself.

Iron Fist: I really hope I don't have to fight whoever this foot belongs to.

So all and all a good toy with a few cool accessories. If your a marvel fan go buy this especially if you love Iron Fist.

Well, I hope you all enjoyed my first review please tell me how I did and any criticisms is welcomed as long as it's not mean spirited.   read

Me doing Toy Reviews YAY or NAY?

I have a lot of toys Marvel Legends, Transformers, and Bionicles. I've been tinkering with the idea of doing reviews of these toys in this blog of mine but I have no idea if you guys would like it. Of course I would review a lot of stuff like the articulation. the design and the accessories. There would also be pics showing all this and videos.

So if you guys want me to do Toy Reviews give me a YAY or if you guys want me to not do Toy reviews and further kill my self-esteem say NAY!   read

What is with God Of War II and lighting things on fire?

I mean honestly the pegasus's wings are on fire. Rage of Titans is just enveloping yourself in fire and not being knocked down or caught by anything. I guess this shirt is true.

Though I really, really, hate the ending cause it's basically saying "Hey go buy a PS3 to continue the epicness of this game!

If you have comments, or more appearances of lighting things on fire in God of War II then please share.

P.S I found Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney for only $20 at Gamestop! WOOHOO!   read

[Anime Post]My love of Gurren Lagann knows no bounds!

If you don't know what Gurren Lagann go here or look at these pretty pictures.

Now I bet your saying "But Meta-Ridley this just looks like a generic robot anime." This anime is anything but generic it throws away logic and kicks reason to the curb! It is very fast paced, has amazing fight scenes, epic quotes and true GAR characters. The biggest robot in the show is the size of a GALAXY gundum has nothing on this. One of the things you don't see a lot in mecha animes is good music well Gurren Lagann has great music from Symphonic to Metal or even rap. Also as one final note before I go all quote crazy is that the drills are freaking HUGE!



So yeah please comment and tell me what you think about this anime or just quote the hell of it.

P.S If anyone here was actually inspired by my ramblings and want to watch Gurren Lagann email me at [email protected] or IM me at MetaRidleyX11 and I'll glady give you the episodes because I doubt you can post torrents here.   read

The life and times of Meta-Ridley!

Hi all! If your wondering where I have been (which you haven't) I've been playing Prince of Persia: Warrior Within which is not as good as the first one by any means. I mean yes it has it's good points and it's still an all around good game but the changes in the prince's personality and a lot of the other stuff feels unnecessary. Though I love the Dahaka chases!

I also recently got from my aunt as a Christmas gift God of War II which is just an never-ending explosion of epic and awesome. Currently I just got to the island of creation where I have to do that annoying puzzle with the dead guy.

I also finally got in the mail Mega64 Version 1 and 2 and I have watched most of volume 1 which my favorite episode was by far episode 4 with the long title purely for the robot marriage thing.

Finally, I won the castlevania contest. YAY!   read

My review of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

I'm not going to make some crazy super-formal review since thousands of people have already done that but I will say that this is honestly a great game....FOR ME TO POOP ON!

(No, but really play this game it's really cheap you could buy it for less then $10)   read

Terry Pratchett has Alzheimers


I would have liked to keep this one quiet for a little while, but because of upcoming conventions and of course the need to keep my publishers informed, it seems to me unfair to withhold the news. I have been diagnosed with a very rare form of early onset Alzheimer's, which lay behind this year's phantom "stroke".

We are taking it fairly philosophically down here and possibly with a mild optimism. For now work is continuing on the completion of Nation and the basic notes are already being laid down for Unseen Academicals. All other things being equal, I expect to meet most current and, as far as possible, future commitments but will discuss things with the various organisers. Frankly, I would prefer it if people kept things cheerful, because I think there's time for at least a few more books yet :o)

Terry Pratchett

PS I would just like to draw attention to everyone reading the above that this should be interpreted as 'I am not dead'. I will, of course, be dead at some future point, as will everybody else. For me, this maybe further off than you think - it's too soon to tell. I know it's a very human thing to say "Is there anything I can do", but in this case I would only entertain offers from very high-end experts in brain chemistry. </i>

This...just really ruined my day. ;_;   read

Munchkin card game decision!

Hi all. Since going to Ubercon I've become much more interested in card games and board games and DnD stuff in general. Recently I've decided I would get one of the munckins for Christmas but I honestly have no idea which one to get.

This is munckin for all the people that don't know what it is.

This is a list all the Munckin games and the expansions but since I know some people don't feel like reading all that much I'll just re-post what each are called and their setting.

1. Normal Munchkin which takes place in a typical DnD setting
2. Star Munckin takes place in a star wars /star trek place
3. Munckin Fu is all about Asian Martian Arts movies
4. Muncking Bytes is horror fiction setting
5. Super Munckin is Super Hero comics
6. Munckin Cthulhu is obvious

and that's it

Currently the score is from asking friends on AIM:

Normal: 3
Cthluhu: 1

That's it! Now please choose one. I BEG YOU!   read
