New Preview Clip and Gallery from Marvel’s Iron Man & Captain America: Heroes United

The last Heroes United, which had Iron Man teaming up with Hulk ended well, but the two heroes had a little bit of friction along the way. Most would chalk it up to the Hulk being highly unstable, but we’re not that quick to absolve Stark of all the blame. He can be obtuse sometimes. And with the new installment of the Heroes United series of films, we might get to see if Stark is really completely free of faults, as there’s no way a conflict will be instigated by his next partner: Mr. Captain America himself, Steve Rogers.

In Marvel’s Iron Man & Captain America: Heroes United, Iron Man and Captain America will have to join forces in order to combat the compounded threat of the Red Skull, Taskmaster and an army of Hydra Brutes. The film will feature the voices of Adrian Pasdar and Roger Craig voicing Iron Man and Captain America, respectively. Clancy Brown will also be featured, lending his voice to the villainous Taskmaster.

Toonbarn’s 2013 Holiday Gift Guide!

Toonbarn's 2013 Holiday Gift Guide!

With Christmas only a few weeks away, we at Toonbarn have decided to compile a list of items that we believe would look great under the Christmas Tree this year. Personally, I’m just going to give my relatives download codes for a bunch of movies and call it a day, but it’s a lazy approach and won’t be appreciated by most people. Download codes may be economical and convenient…heck, it may even be the gift that people deserve! But it’s seriously not the one they need right now.

People these days would rather get things that can be wrapped in paper, stuffed under the Christmas tree, and shoved in their face so they can leave you the heck alone for the rest of the year…wait, sorry. I got a little bit carried away. I’m basically saying if you’re giving away something that is non-tangible as a gift, a smile would do. If you want to do something that not any random person with teeth can do, you need to follow our Holiday Gift Guide.

Of course, some of you are thinking this holiday gift guide is a month too early and should be posted mid-December, but what kind of pud releases a gift-giving guide around the time when most people have already bought gifts for their loved ones?! Not ME. I’m an entirely different kind of pud.

If you don’t want to spend a single cent on a really cool gift for a loved one, and don’t want to smile either, you should try your luck with Toonbarn’s Nintendo Wii U and 3DS Giveaway Contests. (It’s right there, on the right side of the page) Joining is free. If you win, you get yourself a free videogame console that can be given away as gifts and then borrowed later.

Now, on with the show:

Heroes United introduces Shocksquatch to Ben 10 Ultimate Alien

Shocksquatch ready to get Ultimate

If you think the only exciting thing about the Ben 10-Generator Rex crossover is seeing the teenaged Ben Tennyson team up with (and fight) Rex Salazar, you should prepare to expand your list! Why? Because that awesome two-part crossover episode, Heroes United, also introduces a brand new Ben 10 alien form – the Shocksquatch! OK, so the name isn’t all that intimidating, and at first glance, he appears to be a big teddy bear. But, let’s take a deeper look at what this new guy can bring to the table of Ultimate Alien!

If you missed the Heroes United special on Cartoon Network (how could you do that to the Man of Action boys?!) this is a great opportunity to make up for it. Best of all, you get to keep the copy to watch again and again, for just $3.99!

When Rex and Ben became Heroes United

When Rex and Ben became Heroes United

OK, it’s now all said and done. Man of Action studios and Cartoon Network brought their A-Game, and the result was an amazing one hour special where two of our favorite super heroes shared the same screen for Ben 10 / Generator Rex: Heroes United. After months of hype and hours of waiting impatiently at our TVs, we can all finally breathe a sigh of relief… that is, until we dig ourselves back in, and revisit everything! First and foremost, and of special interest within this topic, we wanted to review how the special explored both characters, and each of their respective origin stories. What was it like for Ben and Rex not just before they were united, but before they were the heroes we know them to be?

Ben 10 / Generator Rex: Heroes United review

On Friday, November 25th, Cartoon Network introduced a game changer: Ben 10 / Generator Rex: Heroes United, an hour-long special event of out-of-this-world proportions! The special brought Ben Tennyson of Ben 10 fame over to the universe of Rex Salazar, of Generator Rex fame. There was a smash up, a team up, and then a battle to end all battles with the malevolent Alpha Nanite; an evil, twisted mirror of the Nanites that Rex utilizes for all of his builds. For months we’ve been waiting to watch. For hours we’ve been watching, rewatching, and reviewing what we’ve just seen. So what’s the final verdict? Who won? Will there be another? And, overall, how did we rate Heroes United?

Alpha goes omega on Cannonbolt, XLR8, and crossovers

Alpha goes Omega on Cannonbolt, XLR8, and crossovers

Ben, meet Rex. Rex, meet Ben. For the past few months, we’ve been really digging into what would happen if these two ever met – and for the past few weeks, we’ve started to see images and video of what will happen when they do. From what we can tell, we know there’s going to be a misunderstanding. We know that they’re going to battle it out, to see which one of them would win in a fight. What we haven’t really understood yet is, what they’re going to do once the fighting between the two Man of Action, Cartoon Network super stars is complete. In other words, who is the villain (or villains) that they’ll be faced up against? Who, really, is powerful enough to battle not just Ben 10, but Generator Rex and the Agents of Providence? How about this creepy guy, named Alpha!

Prepare for a Big Chill on Black Friday

Prepare for a Big Chill on Black Friday

Sorry, Rex, but it looks like Ben ate well enough this past Thanksgiving to bring all of his alien friends into your universe! When it hits 7pm this November 25th on Cartoon Network, Ben Tennyson and Rex Salazar meet for the very first time in the one hour, special presentation of Ben 10 / Generator Rex: Heroes United. All week long, we’ve been getting a special look at what the battle has in store for us, and one thing has become very clear: there’s lots of alien forms! We know that Humungousaur is the first to show his (humongous) face, and later learned that Diamondhead would be crashing the party as well. With all the action heating up, don’t you just wish for a nice, big chill…? Or how about a not-so-nice Big Chill!

Cartoon crossovers, ala Heroes United

Heroes United has us look back at other crossovers

The upcoming Ben 10 Ultimate Alien and Generator Rex crossover has everyone super hyped up. We’ve been adding new coverage of the special event as often as possible, simply because its just too ‘dern awesome looking. In addition to it just being a cool, brand new episode, its just a sweet concept to see two entirely different shows colliding in a single format. With that in mind, we wanted to take a look back into some of the other more famous cartoon matchups, teamups, crossovers, mix-n-matches, and… squish-together-ers!

The countdown to Heroes United

The countdown to Heroes United

It’s days now. Just a handful of days. It’s just months, it’s not weeks, it’s not “just an idea” or some sorta sick April Fool’s joke (cough, cough) Heroes United is just a few days away from its November 25th premiere. For the first time ever (and, note, no one ever said “only time”) Ben from Ben 10: Ultimate Alien is teaming up with Rex from Generator Rex in an hour long crossover event. This special even has us not caring about Thanksgiving or Christmas!! Actually, that’s not true, at all… we’re excited for both! …Maybe THEY, too, should crossover, in some sorta …Thanksmas? ….Ahh, forget it. In the meantime, enjoy these new screen grabs from Ben 10 / Generator Rex Heroes United!

We’re past teasers. We’re past trailers. With just a little more than one week before the official unveiling of the Cartoon Network one hour special, Heroes United, we’re now up to showing full clips! With Ben 10 Ultimate Alien and Generator Rex meeting for the very first time, the Man of Action made super heroes are bringing their A-Game to the crossover, teaming up and battling up to make sure audiences get their excitement to the max. We’ve already posted bits and pieces about how Ben Tennyson goes Humungousaur on Generator Rex. We’ve also had an indepth look at how Ben, Wrath, and Lodestar are all unknowns in the world of Generator Rex. But pictures can’t quite do it justice, so lets get to the footage!
