Nice Arrow action figures. I really enjoyed season one of Arrow because not only was it a decent super-hero TV show, but it captured both the drama and the goofy nature of DC comics heroes. Arrow’s version of Deathstroke, for example, is scary more in a “you’re really wearing that costume to trick or treat?” sense.
Beginning in June 2013, Mattel will be releasing a series of 6-inch action figures based on the 1966 live-action Batman television show. Part of the reason this is being released now is that all of the legal issues between Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox surrounding the 1966 series have been resolved. That means we may finally see that series on DVD and/or streaming media.
At Hulu.Com you can watch 9 episodes of the classic tokusatsu series Johnny Sokko and His Giant Robot (simply called “Giant Robot” when it originally aired in Japan). Due to a complicated rights issue, this series has yet to be made available in the U.S. on DVD despite its popularity in the late 1960s.
Jason of Star Command was a live-action, Saturday morning cartoon that debuted in 1978 on CBS. It featured, among others, James Doohan of Star Trek fame. The first season mimicked the old movie serials, with each episode ending in a cliffhanger that formed a complete story over the course of the entire season.

The show will focus on the period between the second and third Terminator films.
