Hot Toys Avengers: Age of Ultron Captain America

Hot Toys has updated their website showing off their upcoming 1/6 scale Captain America based on his appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron. I must say this is probably my favorite version of his suit so far and way better than the one he wore in the first Avengers movie. Aside from the new suit, it looks like Cap’s shield got a bit of an upgrade as well. No longer does it have the straps to wrap around his arm. It’s now just a retractable handle and some magnets that keep it in place. I wonder if this reflects on the film. I can totally see Stark making this upgrade as he looks to be bankrolling the Avengers now after S.H.I.E.L.D.’s collapse.

Ch-ch-changes at Ch-ch-chodenji

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably noticed this website doesn’t look exactly like the one you were looking at yesterday or maybe a couple of days/weeks/months/years ago. I have switched to using WordPress to power this blog as opposed to before, where I was hand cranking  posts using what’s called a static site generator called Middleman. While great in that you get an awful lot of control with how I build my blog, it’s also a lot of work as you have to, well, build everything yourself. I wrote my posts on a text editor, generate static HTML files for them and then upload all the changes to the website. There are also a lot of features that’s just either impossible or would take to much work to implement such as comments and image galleries.

With this new WordPress-powered version of my site, posting should now be easier for me, thus hopefully accelerating my output and I should be able to put in some fancy new stuff like the aforementioned comments and galleries. I’m currently working off a default WordPress theme right now, but hopefully as I learn more about how to work this thing, I’ll be able to get it looking more to my liking with the Chodenji logo back at the top and looking much spiffier.
