Happy Birthday to us…Happy Birthday to us…Happy Birthday dear…Happy Birthday to us! Just around this time two years ago, I had an idea. Let’s see if we can give a good community of people a place to look for all the news they want to read about from the Marvel Universe (M U). Our intent has always been to focus on the Marvel Universe Toy Line from Hasbro. While we have remained true to that focus, we have branched out into so many other things, comic books, movies, video games, TV shows, Internet memes…We have even talked a little DC here…who’da thunk? Last year, I said that it all started with our first post about SDCC 2011 on July 24 2011. The site literally started there, but this started a solid ways before that. The day I picked up the Hawkeye, Piledriver 2-pack at Chosen One Collectibles in West Babylon New York. Maybe I’m wrong…maybe it started when I downloaded my first comic to my iPad that re-sparked my passion for comics that was dormant since the mid 90’s….maybe, maybe it was the comics I grew up with and fell in love with. It was definitely one of those things. At any rate, I’m happy to be here, I’m happy to share my passion with you, my readers, my friends. I can’t believe we are 2 years running, I can’t believe we haven’t been laughed off of the Internet, I can’t believe you keep coming back, we keep making new friends, I can’t believe any of it.

That said, thank you, everyone for reading our site, for being a part of our community, for recognizing us as a place to get good information about things you care about. It’s the reason I keep doing this. Thank you for reading this site, thank you for giving me the reasons I need to keep doing this.

Not only thanks to you the readers. Thank you Big Bad Toy Store for helping us to fund the site through sponsorship. Thank you to Hasbro and Hunter PR for recognizing that what we bring you is worth the paper it’s printed on, for recognizing that we are ‘legitimate’ and for including us in their efforts to get incredible toys into your hands! Thanks to new friends at Diamond Select Toys! Thank you to our friends and family, Imagination Toys, TotalToyz, Moonchiecustoms, the Make Mine Marvel Facebook group, thank you everyone for sharing these two years with us.

I also don’t want to forget to thank the people who have contributed very directly to this site, Scott Thomas Barnes from the Make Mine Marvel group, who helped me cover Toy Fair and will help with NYCC this year, my brother Michael, who helped contribute when we were just getting things off of the ground and who has and will help cover NYCC and Toy Fairs to come, my nephew Richie who has provided movie reviews and help with NYCC. Most of all though, there are times this site might not have even made it through, and thanks to James Ruddy, MUReview continued to have day in and day out content. I’m glad to have him and we owe him a great debt of gratitude for helping us out, especially when we needed it most. That said…
