July 2009 Iron Man 2 Blasts Into Comic-Con

Blasts Into Comic-Con


_mg_5155
SAN DIEGO — How do you top a movie that took a lesser-known character from the Marvel Comics universe and turned him into the most badass big-screen superhero to date? That’s the dilemma faced by director Jon Favreau, whose 2008 movie turned Robert Downey Jr. into billionaire playboy Tony Stark, the man inside the Iron Man armor.
Favreau’s strategy: Bring in more top-shelf actors to play a handful of new characters, and bring kick-ass footage to show at Comic-Con International in an attempt to wow the world’s biggest fans for a second time.

“It all started here,” Favreau told the packed house during Saturday’s panel in the San Diego Convention Center’s mammoth Hall H. “Nobody cared before you guys did.” Two years prior, the original panel kicked Comic-Con’s ass with a rocking presentation that set the stage for the movie’s $318 million U.S. box office blitz and proved the annual pop-culture convention’s power to Hollywood.
It looks like Favreau and crew have pulled it off by staying true to the first movie’s intoxicating tone, achieved by mixing killer visuals and a smart-ass vibe with solid acting, punchy dialogue and just the right amount of heavy metal music. In keeping with the original ’s wicked sense of humor, Favreau kicked off the presentation by playing a supercheesy trailer that could have left the unsuspecting a little shell-shocked.
“What was that?” Downey asked in mock incredulity as he walked onstage, taking Favreau to task and calling the footage “unadulterated garbage.”
“This is bullshit, dude,” Downey said, as the crowd roared.
Then, after Downey led the 6,000-plus fans in the audience in singing “Happy Birthday” to Favreau’s 8-year-old son, Max, the real footage screened and fans got what they waited so long for: five minutes of souped-up action and attitude that seemed like the perfect extension of the original movie.
Suits from the <em>Iron <b>Man</b></em> movies, in Marvel Suits from the Iron Man movies, in Marvel's Comic-Con booth, show the evolution of Tony Stark's armor.

Here’s what they saw:
  • The first scene was a shot of Tony Stark in his Iron Man suit but with his helmet off, looking a little the worse for wear and taking a break in the middle of a giant doughnut sign atop a diner. Samuel Jackson, who plays SHIELD’s Nick Fury, looks up at Stark and calls him down for a powwow inside the coffee shop.
  • A scene where Tony Stark appears before a Senate committee showed the supremely confident superhero giving an exasperated lawmaker lots of lip. The senator, played by Garry Shandling, wants Tony to hand over his “Iron Man weapon,” but the wise-ass former weapons dealer cracks wise and plays to the crowd. “I’m your nuclear deterrent,” he says, standing to flash peace signs at the audience in the hearing room. “I have successfully privatized national defense.”
  • Shots of Russian bad guy Ivan Vanko (played by Mickey Rourke) hammering away on metal to make his Whiplash suit while a Tool song plays in the background, a brilliant soundtracking choice that with any luck will s

Little Tikes June 2009 General Manager Interview

Tom Richmond isn’t the type of person who can just dive into a book without knowing anything about it. Instead, he has to take a gander at the front cover and read the back cover before he decides to invest his time. He’s the same way when it comes to problem-solving in the business world as general manager of children’s toys manufacturer The Little Tikes Co., which posted more than $100 million in 2008 revenue.
“I’m a problem-solving-oriented person,” says Richmond, who is also executive vice president of MGA Entertainment Inc., Little Tikes’ parent company. “My natural tendency is to go in and try to fix the problem.”
Richmond has to explain to the person bringing him the problem that he isn’t trying to do that person’s job if he asks a lot of questions about the problem.
“It’s important for people to understand that so they know that when I am probing and asking questions, it’s because that’s how I think,” he says. “That’s how I process information. If you understand that, when I dive in and I’m asking questions … and I’m looking for a solution, it’s because that is how I think. That can be interpreted as a lack of confidence. It can be interpreted as, ‘I guess you don’t think I’m doing my job or I didn’t do my homework and that’s why you are asking me all those questions.’”
Richmond says explaining yourself to the people you work with will avoid those types of miscommunications.
“I tend to do that very casually because that’s the way I am,” he says. “But, whether it’s done formally or whether it’s done casually, helping people understand you helps them understand how to manage you because management goes both ways. You’re managing people; they are managing you, too.”

May 2009 Toy Maniac's May Round Up
Well another May is about to close and already many of us are turning our attention to what is next. As your humble Toy Maniac I have noticed huge gaping holes in the Transformers aisle as well as the redundant G.I. Joe figures still cluttering the racks. Target already has a sign up for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen toys set to debut on May 30th so look for them everywhere starting this weekend. There will not only be some great new bots for the movie but plenty of classic bots as Hasbro celebrates Transformers 25th anniversary (see my Toy Fair coverage of the Revenge of the Fallen toys).
 
I thought I would spotlight the two best movie action figures of the month and the single worst one. The only criteria for this list are that they must be from a summer movie in May. The three big summer movies for the month of May were X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek and Terminator Salvation. Sadly there is no Robert Langdon figure, yet. Of course I will be looking at sculpts and points of articulation. More importantly I will be looking at the performance of the actor, his effect on whether or not I would buy the figure and his the long term effect in pop culture. After all, these are more than just figures they are tributes to the actors and their performances.
 
The Best of May:
 
Last week I spotlighted several of the new San Diego Comic Con exclusives (see column). However in naming only three NECA Terminator figures worth buying I struck a nerve with someone at Sideshow Collectibles. They promptly sent me an email pointing out their Hot Toys 12 inch line based on Terminator Salvation which they are distributing. Originally I blew these figures off as too expensive. In this economy who really needs a 12 inch doll of Christian Bale as John Connor (see image) in what will probably be marked as one of his worst and soulless performances. Don’t get me wrong. The Hot Toys figure is incredible but I’d rather call it a post apocalyptic Bruce Wayne than a John Connor after watching that movie. Thank you, no John Connor for me. The T-600 (see image) is neat but despite it’s at 14 inch tall frame and cave man like appearance it just isn’t the T-800.
 
The Hot Toys Marcus Wright (see link for details and my gallery for more pictures) on the other hand is the true standout. Beginning with all the incredible details and various costumes Marcus Wright can be dressed in Hot Toys has really outdone themselves with its appearance. The likeness is uncanny but the main reason why this figure resonates over Christian Bale’s John Connor is that Sam Worthington put everything into the character. If anyone deserves to be immortalized from that movie it is him. The Hot Toys action figure does just that. Thankfully this will not be the last time we see Worthington as he is already set to appear in James Cameron’s Avatar (2009) and the new version of Clash of the Titans (2010). Action figures to follow, I am sure.

MGA June 2008 Manufacturing back to US?

MGA manufactures about 70 percent of its toys in China and the rest in the United States and Poland, Larian said.
The cost of manufacturing in China, however, has risen recently, as energy, labor and raw material costs have increased, and its currency has appreciated.
It would be time to seriously consider moving back a lot of manufacturing to the United States, Larian said, if oil prices get close to $200 a barrel.
During tough economic times, people turn to discount retailers like Wal-Mart Stores Inc (WMT.N: Quote, Profile, Research) to buy more goods, so it was important to have its products in those stores, Larian added.

Hasbro June 2008 Tapping Summer Movies: Iron Man,ulk, Indy

Hasbro boasts three of this summer’s potential blockbusters in its portfolio: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Starting with Iron Man, and the firm has a collection of action figures and role-play items. The Iron Man Mask and Repulsor Gauntlet (£19.99) shoots small repulsor ray discs, with the gauntlet fitting easily over a child’s arm. The gold and red 12-inch Repulsor Iron Man (£19.99) is a highlight in the action figure range and features motion activated flight sounds plus light up palms, while a selection of six-inch figures (£7.99) include Tony Stark’s original Iron Man suit.

The Incredible Hulk hits cinemas on June 13th and Hasbro’s range features new super-sized Smash Hands with sound effects (£19.99) and the Power Glow Mask (£14.99), with the eyes glowing green at the touch of a button. Six-inch movie action figures of the Hulk (£7.99) come with smashed extras including cars and iron girders. The 12-inch figure is the Electronic Smashin’ Stompin’ Hulk (£24.99) which includes double-arm motion smash action. The figure also says a number of Hulk phrases, such as ‘You’re making me angry’, makes loud smashing sounds and has eyes which light up green.

Finally, the Indiana Jones line is based on both the new film and the classic adventures. The Electronic Sound FX Whip (£19.99) is over three foot long and plays the Raiders March theme tune, as well as whip-cracking sounds, but is made of soft foam so it’s completely safe for children. The first wave of 3.75-inch action figures (£6.99) will include Indiana Jones with pistol and whip, Belloq, Marion Ravenwood, Sallah (Monkey Man) and Cairo Swordsman. More action figures will roll out later in the year, as well as vehicles and a Mighty Muggs series of figures.

Upper Deck All Star Vinyl Jan 2008 Peyton Manning: Super Bowl Champ and Vinyl All Star

Peyton Manning: Super Bowl Champ and Vinyl All Star

His brother Eli may have blown the chance to ruin the New England Patriots perfect season, but Peyton Manning already has his Super Bowl ring from last year. Now, he is the latest addition to Upper Deck's All Star Vinyl line of sports star action figures.
Courtesy of All Star Vinyl
The Upper Deck All Star Vinyl figures typically come in multiple editions. Manning is available in four editions: blue outfit, white outfit, 2007 Pro Bowl outfit, and a solid black version. Both the blue and white uniforms are limited to 1000 pieces each, the Pro Bowl outfit is limited to 500 pieces, and the solid black version is being limited to a mere 250 pieces worldwide. These retail for $75 a piece, with the exception of the solid black version. If you order it alone, it will set you back $100, but you can get a 'Dual Pack' with both the black and blue versions for $150 ($75 each). These are available starting on January 15, 2008.
I can't provide you links to order these items, because they are initially available only to All Star Vinyl Platinum Club members before they are sold to the general public. There is a limited enrollment window that is open until January 4, 2008, so if you're reading this and you're thinking about getting more limited figures like the solid black Peyton Manning, it's best that you sign up as soon as possible. What's more, if you sign up now, you'll get a Platinum Tom Brady vinyl figure just for signing up (and paying the registration fee, of course).

Skylab Letterpress & Matt Hawkins Dec 2007 Mechanical Man

Toy_and_print
Matt Hawkins latest project is entitled Mechanical Man.  The limited edition figure/print was printed on a letterpress (in two colors) on metallic silver paper.  Out of a run of 250 prints, the first 50 have been hand-cut and assembled by Matt.  The other 200 can be purchased as flat 10”x13” prints, which you can put together or leave as is.
Once assembled, Mechanical Man measures about 5” in height.  It was printed by Skylab Letterpress and is definitely superior quality to anything you could produce using your home printer.  The pre-built figures will run $30 each, while the flat prints will cost $20.

Gumbo Nov 2007 Free Manga

Gumbo is a free weekly manga that you can occasionally see being handed out at Akihabara, Shibuya and other station entrances.

I believe that Gumbo is actually the first free manga competing with the likes of Young Jump.
Gumbo (click to enlarge)
 
These weekly manga journals are usually filled with one chapter from many different manga series. So for example you may find a chapter of Claymore or Inuyasha etc.

Apart form the manga, there is the traditional gravure idol photos too. Many people leave these on the luggage racks on a train for the next person to read. From time to time, you will see homeless folks going through carriages looking for these. They take them and resell them - you can see quite a few outside Shinjuku station.

The only free magazine that I would try to pick up as much as I could when I was living in the UK was the Eikoku News Digest - aimed at Japanese living in London. Had lots of news and classifieds. I put an ad in there once to meet Japanese language exchange students.
Gumbo (click to enlarge)
 
I've picked up Gumbo a few times but haven't come across anything to keep me coming back for more.

The reason why Gumbo is free is that they want to increase their readership as much as possible and base their business around the advertising model.
There are many free magazines being handed out in and around stations like R25.
When I was at Microsoft, I saw the advertising prices for R25 which were ridiculously sky high. Advertising is a lucrative business in Japan.

Residents in Tokyo may want to get hold of a free publication aimed at Gaijin called Metropolis - full of local information in English and an interesting read.

BTW, these were taken at the Good Smile offices when I was on their live broadcast ^^;

Jssy Ltd Nov 2007 Chinese manufacturer issues Aqua Dots apology - CBC News

The Chinese manufacturer of a toy that was found to contain a powerful chemical that metabolizes into a potent date-rape drug when consumed has issued an apology.
The toys, sold under the name Aqua Dots in North America and Bindeez in Australia, included beads made by Hong Kong's Jssy Ltd.

Spin Master Ltd. has recalled about 4.2 million Aqua Dots toys in North America.
Spin Master Ltd. has recalled about 4.2 million Aqua Dots toys in North America.
(Health Canada)

'The incident has given the 'Made in China' brand a negative [impact] during the Christmas season,' company director Liao Juyuan told reporters at a news conference in Shenzen. 'I have to deeply apologize.'
The toys were coated with 1,4-butanediol, which when ingested can cause unconsciousness, seizures, drowsiness, coma and death.
The toys were pulled from store shelves in early November, after three children who swallowed the beads fell ill within a 10-day period. At least nine children in the U.S. were sickened after ingesting the beads. No illnesses have been reported in Canada.
Toronto-based distributor Spin Master Ltd. has issued a North American recall of about 4.2 million Aqua Dots toys.
In recent months, U.S. and Canadian officials have issued a series of recalls of made-in-China toys for safety problems.

Mattel Nov 2007 Congresswoman asks Mattel ceo to return Fisher Price manufacturing to NY - WBFO

BUFFALO, NY (2007-11-19) Congresswoman Louise Slaughter has reached out to a top executive at Mattel to return manufacturing operations for Fisher Price toys to Western New York.
Fisher Price is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mattel. Its headquarters is still in East Aurora, where one thousand people are employed. But all of Fisher Price's manufacturing operations are now located in other countries.
In recent months, Fisher Price has recalled toys made in China that had lead paint in them. Congresswoman Slaughter said that is costing Fisher Price its good name. So, she reached Mattel Chairman and C-E-O Robert Eckert with a request to bring manufacturing home.
According to Slaughter, Eckert said he would think about it. The Democratic lawmaker said financial incentives are available.
Slaughter said it's essential that the US rebuild its manufacturing base.
Eckert has apologized for the lead paint found in the company's toys. Mattel's web site has a letter from Eckert addressed to fellow parents, saying there is nothing more important than 'the safety of our children.'
Despite his promise to Slaughter, Mattel and Eckert have not given any indication that they're thinking about a return of manufacturing operations to the US.
