Sadly, it does not sing, and it is limited to 1,000 pieces, but the Dr. Horrible Sing-Along Blog Animated Maquette looks awesome!
Cast in professional-grade resin and painted by hand, Dr. Horrible is pictured in his moment of triumph, holding his Freeze Ray aloft in one hand and shaking his fist at the world. He stands over 6-inches tall â€“ 9-inches tall, if you include his weapon.
For $69, Whedon fans will probably snap these up before you get a chance to check your bank account balance to see if you can afford it.
This probably slipped past many people’s radar as the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series ended its long run with episode 700.
Last weekend after 700 episodes and 17 seasons, the long-running Power Ranger series came to an end. The karate-miming, putty-patroller-beating group reached massive highs with toy sales and ratings in childrens’ television, and also terrible lows with the tragic and dark crime that involved a past child star.
I never got into the series myself, as giant transforming robots seemed to have already been played out.Â What did make sense about the initial American series was Amy Jo Johnson.
Dark Horse Comics has announced that Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo is getting the fluffy stuffed bunny treatment in May 2010.
This new toy stands fourteen inches tall from his carefully detailed sandals to the tips of his movable ears. Stan Sakai, who provided extensive reference art for the project, oversaw every detail in the design process.
â€œI have always thought that a doll of this type would be an excellent presentation of Usagi,â€ Sakai remarked in a prepared statement, â€œand have been happy to assist as the prototype evolved with commentary and revisions. I think he came out very well indeed.â€
It does indeed look dandy, and with the large number of Usagi fans around the world, this might be a product that will go fast.
CHEW, the highly acclaimed new series by writer John Layman and artist Rob Guillory, continues its second story arc, “International Flavor” with yet another complete distribution-level sell out!
“WOW. Months ago, if you told me that CHEW would still be selling out by the seventh issue, I’d have asked what you were smoking,” Guillory said. “Thanks to everyone, retailers and readers alike, for making this book such an incredible success story well beyond anything John and I could’ve dreamed up. You guys are the ones that make CHEW a hit!”
Another section of the puzzle arrived late yesterday from Marvel, and when joined with the first two parts, the bigger picture continues to emerge.Â Did anyone think we would see the big reveal in this installment?Â Is anyone still in the dark as to who Peter is reaching for?
So, millions of dead folks have arisen, and the heroes of all galaxies have been driven to the edge of destruction trying to fight off their own dead…Â Â The bearers of light have a big task ahead of them, especially given their own internal antipathy, and Nekron’s masterstroke at the climax of last issue.Â Who’s walking away alive?Â I can’t say as I’m willing to bet on anybody (but then, half the characters are dead already, so I’ve got better odds than many of my predictions.)
Had a chance to check out the trailer for Crackle’s new series The Bannen Way, and considering it looks like a cross between Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, White Collar, and The Driver, it does look pretty good.Â For a web series, there’s a lot of production value in the show, and when you view it in HD, it does look stunning.
One might question why we’re posting a trailer for a Bruce Willis movie, but it makes sense when the movie is directed by Kevin Smith, features the theft of baseball cards, and of course has Bruce Willis in it.Â Throw it in a pot and stir, andÂ A Couple of Dicks Cop Out is full of pop-culture-y goodness.
Two longtime NYPD partners on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Jimmy (Bruce Willis) is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, and Paul (Tracy Morgan) is his “partner-against-crime” whose preoccupation with his wife’s alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball.
