I feel like I've been transported back hundreds of years to medieval Japan. In front of me are over a hundred samurai warriors with each group in its own color (red, gold and purple) and we're standing inside an ancient warlord's castle. As I stand near a cherry blossom tree, I watch as the visiting Shogun Warrior dressed in Gold, with his own group of golden Samurai, inform the kneeling Samurai of Ako Castle they are now all Ronin. As he says this, I look at the 3D cameras and the large crew standing nearby, and can't believe everything is make believe. Let me back up a second. It's June 8, 2011 and I'm flying back to Los Angeles from London. Yesterday I spend most of the day on director Carl Rinsch's first feature, 47 Ronin, with a few other online reporters. While I knew going in the movie would be based »

Toy Hunter star Jordan Hembrough is gearing up for a third season of surprises next year on Travel Channel, and the overgrown child from Jersey was like a kid in a candy store at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego as he shot footage for a future episode and pounced on some of the coolest collectibles to hoard for himself. As ETonline's own resident overgrown child, I couldn't miss an opportunity to talk toys with Jordan -- and how "these kids these days" just don't understand…

David Weiner: I’m a huge fan of your show on Travel Channel, which you just finished your second season. I am your demographic … I’ve had some of the things that you drooled over, namely the Godzilla Shogun Warrior, I still have that; the Kenner Alien 18-inch action figure, that kind of stuff, so I just get very excited when you get excited over these »
The world is being threatened by insurmountable odds as monstrous Kaiju (Japanese for “strange beast”) are surfacing to Earth by way of a cosmic breach in the Pacific Ocean in southeast Asia. Understanding that this was a global threat, the world powers united and funded a program constructing giant robots called Jaegers, manned by humans to combat Kaijus. But with each monster that comes through, the Kaiju become more deadly and learns how to stop the Jaegers. America’s Jaeger, “Gipsy Danger” was manned by two brothers, Raleigh (Sons of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam) and Yancy Becket (Diego Klattenhoff) until one Kaiju nearly destroyed it; Raleigh is forced into hiding.

Boiling Point Creative, the gifted team behind artwork for such films like Total Recall, Pirates!, Hotel Transylvania, The Adventures Of Tintin and other successful campaigns (check their portfolio here), has turned their considerable talents to the world of Japanese anime and the king of monsters, Godzilla, in their Shogun Warriors poster series.
Boiling Point’s newest set of 5 features Godzilla, Mazinga, Gaiking, Raydeen and Dragun, all measured at 16″ x 24″. They look fantastic. Behold the goods!
Each poster sells for $30, or you can get the whole set for $125 (a $25 savings if my math is correct)! To visit their store in its entirety, go here. Or, for the Shogun Warrior series, visit here. »

Could July 12th hurry up already? Ever since that footage at Comic-Con last year, we've been filled with the same kind of geeky giddiness for "Pacific Rim" that we can imagine Guillermo del Toro has been spreading all over edit bays while assembling what could very likely be an action masterpiece.
Warner Bros. has unleashed the full trailer for "Pac Rim" (hey, if that store in the mall can be abbreviated to "Pac Sun"...) today and it's filled with exactly what we wanted to see: big Shogun Warrior style robots piloted by a biker from Samcro and other soldiers fighting Godzilla style monsters. Charlie Hunnam, aka Jax Teller from "Sons of Anarchy" (and almost Thor in the Marvel movies) gets the exposition out of the way in a tasty voice over, setting up the premise for what this movie is all about: a future where humans operate huge robots to battle giant alien monsters. »
