PiercingMetal Thoughts: Whew this looks cool so who’s bringing me back one from SDCC since we cannot be there? Anyway, I love the idea of this being a “0” edition because that only means to me that we shall see similar exclusives hitting conventions that all are based on the movie properties as opposed to the comic book lines. Hopefully our readers who are intersted in this one can get their hands on it. Good luck and I will see you next time.
