I love living in the future. I can check facebook on the train, my car has a USB port and there are TONS of super hero movies to satiate my geeky appetite!! While The Incredibles has been my favorite animated herofest, Megamind is looking to step up and be counted. Here's the skinny..
When super villain Megamind (Will Ferrell) defeats his archrival Metro Man (Brad Pitt), the world should be his oyster. But instead, Megamind falls into total despair. It turns out that life without a rival is life without a point for him. So, he creates a new superhero rival, Titan (Jonah Hill). Unfortunately, the new hero wants to be a super villain, too. Caught in the middle, star reporter Roxanne Ritchi (Tina Fey) asks the tough questions: Who can we turn to? Who has what it takes to stand up to this menace? Who will defend the innocent? Megamind! That's who.
Toyquest jumps in to do the plastic honors with a line of Megamind collectibles you can take home and pet like they are your real friends.
