ARRIVAL - Finding the Common Ground

We don't post a lot of the 20 or so clips, trailers and viral bits Hollywood pumps out for each film we are interested in (plenty of other websites keeping up with that stuff), but when this clip landed on my desk, I knew I wanted to share it as quickly as possible. The upcoming scifi film "Arrival" is a story of first contact with alien life, stressing the importance of two races coming together, overcoming differences and a massive language barrier with the stakes as high as they come. It's a message that couldn't be more relevant today as our understanding of our own human brothers and sisters seems to be worse than it has ever been. This clip expresses how we might reach a deeper understanding of each other when we find common ground...

NYCC 2016: The Walking Dead: All Out War Miniatures Game

The Walking Dead: All Out War Miniatures Game
We cover more than our fair share of toys here at Idle Hands, so it was inevitable that we would zero in on the newest collectibles at Image Comics while scouring the floor at New York Comic Con 2016! These folks aren't known for releasing a great many fantastic plastics, but their Saga comic action figure boxed set is 100% drool worthy and this year's NYCC exclusive Lying Cat statue was painfully hard to resist. While making whimpering sounds up against Lying Cat's Plexiglas enclosure, something caught my eye at the far end of the booth and I ran over to investigate. Greeting me was a very pleasant man and a tabletop miniatures game called The Walking Dead: All Out WAR!!! Let's check out what was inside...
