So, is anyone getting tired of me posting information about Avengers? I hope not, because I’m going to keep doing it. Feel free to skip by if you’re not interested. I’m extremely fired up to see this cartoon, so I fully intend on posting about the videos as they’re uploaded.
The latest five-minute short focuses on The Hulk… DisneyXD.com is the first place to post it (which doesn’t allow embedding for some weird reason). It’s on the same video page that the Iron Man one was posted yesterday.
Along with that, Marvel.com has also begun posting their own content, including very short snippets of the origins of the Avengers. First two are Thor and Captain America.
This cartoon really looks great. It has a very “realistic” feel to it. Sure, the animated style is the typical distorted look, but the dialog is very mature and natural, the action is very well choreographed…it really rocks. October 20th…I’ve marked my calendar!
BATMAN RETURNS BAT-COWL REPLICA
This large collectible will be the centerpiece of Batman collections and
promises to be quite the conversation piece. The cowl is taken from the
actual movie version and is cast in fiberglass (not wearable,
unfortunately), and comes with a display base with a sculpted utility
belt. It is limited to 500 pieces, and we have it listed at $474.99,
saving you $25 off the MSRP. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TOY10385&mode=retail
This week we received all the newest Star Wars Vintage Black and Silver action figures. This also includes the foil chase figures. These have been selling very quickly! We have also posted the ROTJ Star Wars Vintage Black and Silver actions figures as PreOrders!
Over on HissTank.com, Gyre-Viper has released another swatch of pre-production artwork from Hasbro sculpting legend Bill Merklein. Responsible for many of our favorite G.I. Joe toys from the 80’s, Mr. Merklein has been generous enough to share these details and images with us, and Gyre-Viper has been a huge help getting it out to the public.
Some really, really awesome stuff here. I can’t get enough of it. I’ve mirrored a bunch of the images below.
Also, if you love this, don’t forget about Gyre’s many other threads posted with more fantastic work from Mr. Merklein.
