The final piece!

The last little bit for Grace's bakery- a tea cart.



I added a curtain, too. It's pretty much finished, except for a door. I glued the treats to the furniture, and all the furniture to the floor, except for the chairs and tea cart.



I found a good place to display the new Doctor Who toys- on top of the bakery box!



FInally saw Ant-Man yesterday. I loved it! It was a fun movie, with plenty of action and good effects. Paul Rudd made a good Scott Lang/Ant-Man. Michael Douglas was Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man. Great bits with Anthony Mackie as Falcon, too! Also, I wasn't expecting to see Peggy Carter at the beginning (a Pym flashback to 1989). It's sad that Janet Van Dyne, the orginal Wasp, is seemingly "lost forever" in the microverse (that's how she "died" at the end of Secret Invasion- she got better!), though there's a hint she might somehow come back. That would be awkward for her daughter, Hope (Evangeline Lilly)! The clip at the end of the credits are a hint to what will happen in Captain America: Civil War. There are also hints of other superheroes coming up, such as Spider-man. Warning- this is NOT a movie for bug-a-phobes!

Just like the Avengers, Ant-Man seems to be a mix of Marvel comic book universes, alternate timelines, Ultimates, etc. In the comics, Hope Van Dyne is from an alternate universe, and as Red Wasp, she's not exactly one of the good guys! Also disappointed that Scott's daughter, Cassie, is so little in the movie. No chance of her becoming Ant-Girl/Stature, and likely no chance for Young Avengers, either.

One of the best cameos was from Garrett Morris of Saturday Night Live. Back in the 70s, he played Ant-Man in a skit! And the best scene from the trailer (IMHO), the Ant-Man/Yellowjacket fight on Cassie's Thomas the Tank Engine play set, is even better on the big screen.
