stan-lee.jpgI should really read my toy magazines when I get them. Just saw in both Toyfare and Toy Shop magazines that Hasbro has an exclusive Stan Lee action figure.

 Oh will I never learn! I gots to get me one of those!

On a more positive note I heard from someone that they picked up a Captain Snoopy and Woodspock for me — YEAH!

I was over at the Simpsons Movie website playing around and got to create my own Simpsons character!

UPDATE: Sadly they removed all the cool content and along with it my Simpsons character (next time screen caps). Heck they have removed all movie content from the domain.

The magazines that gave a whole generation the shivers are back. Creepy and Eerie were the definitive horror and sci-fi comics of the 1960s and flourished up until the early 1980s. Dark Horse Comics has entered into an agreement with New Comic Company to create archive editions of this classic material, as well as launch new Creepy and Eerie comics for modern horror fans. The licensing deal will encompass publishing, select film and TV development, and merchandising. Many of today’s brightest stars will lend their talents to the venture, including horror legend Bernie Wrightson (City of Others) and modern master Steve Niles (30 Days of Night, Criminal Macabre).

Indiana Jones for a new generation…

Lucasfilm’s celebrated action/adventure hero, Indiana Jones, the forerunner of popular characters such as Lara Croft, will be making a triumphant return in 2008 with the yet-to-be-titled fourth installment of the Indiana Jones film series. Starring Harrison Ford and directed by Steven Spielberg, the film is slated for release in May 2008. Dark Horse Comics is excited to announce that it has acquired the comic book rights to the world’s most famous adventurer and will launch a new series in 2008. Fans can plunge themselves into the adventures of the fedora-wearing archaeologist well before then. In February 2008, Dark Horse Comics will publish the first of two Indiana Jones Omnibuses collecting Dark Horse’s previous entries in the saga. Then April sees the release of volume one of Indiana Jones Adventures–a digest-sized graphic novel designed for the enjoyment of young readers as well as adults. The Indiana Jones Adventures volumes and the Omnibuses will continue on a quarterly basis–including Omnibuses for the original Marvel run of Indiana Jones comics.

A comics adaptation of the film will be released simultaneously with the motion picture, followed immediately by an all-new Indiana Jones comics series.

Personally I hate exclusives. And I especially hate them when they are impossible to get. I am referring to the Star Trek Snoopy and Woodstock bobble heads from Funko. Which are only available at San Diego Comic Con [going on right now].trek-snoopy-woodstock.jpg

 Being on the east coast I cannot easily or affordably head over and pick these up.

 Being the big Star Trek geek that I am I NEED these! But how to get them when I just now found out about them. I quickly posted to PlayTrek [Star Trek Collectors group and hope someone can help me, but it does not look good].

 Called and emailed the manufacturer and they could care less. Maybe if they do not sell out they will appear somewhere other than eBay. I will not pay those prices for them, no way no how!

I recently heard a commercial on the radio for Nantucket Nectars which rubs me the wrong way. Don’t get me wrong I really enjoy there drinks. It is just this commercial drives me nuts.

 It starts with the saying they are playing a spelling game, but instead of ever spelling anything all they do is ask these two guys how to pronounce the additives/preservatives. Even after they make a point of saying it can’t be too hard to spell them since they are under 75 letters, yet never any spelling going on.

 Guess it just hits a nerve. I’ll certainly continue to drink there fine beverages but I do hates that commercial.
