I Pity The Fool! Mr. T: A Look Back.

If you grew up in the 80's, Mr. T was a pop culture god. With his mohawk, gold jewelry and hulking muscles, what wasn't to like? Throw in the gravely voice and the trademark catch phrases, and he basically became a living legend.

Mr. T, I don't pity you. I salute you. Thanks for being awesome.

Star Wars Spotlight: Boba Fett

As a kid, I can remember seeing "Return of the Jedi" in the movie theater. Unfortunately, that utterly amazing experience also reminds me of the mental anguish I suffered when Boba Fett met his apparent demise in the belly of the Sarlacc Pit. Questions filled my 7-year old head. How could such a cool character die this way? Will he escape? Should I eat my peanut or chocolate M&M's first...?

Fast forward 12 years and Boba Fett lives yet again. Meet the 1995 Power of the Force version of Mr. Fett, in all his glory--complete with his wookie scalps, cape and blaster:
