[blackbirdpie url=”http://twitter.com/#!/GeorgeTakei/status/58948987692138496″] Reader Laurie Lachapelle pointed me to this tweet by George Takei decrying the casting of the live action Steve movie.

I’ve never really been impressed with the gold finish on Gundam kits. Something about those gold finished parts always looks fake to me.
