Memorial Day 2015 Photos Images HD Instagram2

On behalf of all the members and staff of, we’d like to wish you and yours a happy & health Memorial Day. We give thanks to those that have served and continue to serve. We remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us and we swear to never forget.

“As we express our gratitude we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

We find ourselves gathered together to reflect on this one sentiment, uttered many years ago by President John F. Kennedy. Words, he believed, were useless unaccompanied by action. This is why we – the many – take time to remember and to honor our veterans – the few who were so willing to give of themselves to defend their brothers and their country.

While you’re enjoying time with family and friends today, don’t forget to take time to give thanks to those who made it all possible. sponsor TheToySource posted up their latest newsletter. Check out the first part below and check the discussion for even more news from them.

Transformers vs gijoe movie

Chris Sims of Comics Alliance recently had an interview with IDW Publishing’s comic series Transformers vs. GI Joe writer and artist Tom Scioli. In the interview Tom talks about the creative process, the large casts of characters, building a fictional universe, and many more interesting things. He also reveals that he has written a comic adaption of the Transformers vs. GI Joe movie… which, of course, is a movie that doesn’t actually exist! You’ll have to read the interview to find out more!

Rafael “Zap” Melendez is one of the original 13 members of the G.I. JOE team. He’s a specialist in armor-piercing and anti-tank weapons, but he also assists the team as a demolitions expert. From his training in Engineering School, Ordnance School, and Advanced Infantry, he’s acquired field skills that he applies with his characteristic coolness under fire and a professional attitude in any situation. He’s participated in many battles against COBRA and uses knowledge gleaned from those missions to pinpoint and attack the evil organization’s weak points. And just to be absolutely sure of the outcome, he backs up every plan with plenty of weapons and explosives.

“The stuff I work on could blow up at any time, so I have to make sure that anytime something explodes, it causes COBRA COMMANDER to have a very bad day.”
