That first picture, was the end of what might go down in history, as the best (or one of the best) episodes that Thinking Outside the Longbox has done!

TOTLB S18 Youtube Original – Impulse

I started watching the Youtube "Original," TV show, Impulse, a little bit before we headed out to Comic Con International! What a crazy cool idea!! The very first scene in the pilot, sucks you in, without really knowing what is going on!! Two guys fighting, and teleporting, between what seems like an iceberg in the middle of nowhere, and a crowded subway car. It always peaks my interest when the action starts the movie, and every move from then on, represents a step towards knowing what the...

The Mego Corporation was founded in 1954, but turned to doing license action figures in 1971! One of the first action figures was NFL Hall of Famer, Joe Namath.
