About Ark    
A tiny Japanese company that produced diecast monster toys under the brand name of "Arklon." These toys also saw release in America in the early 1980s. Ark is an enigma. Where did they come from? Where did they go? Who the heck knows! They're a mystery even to Japanese toy experts. They seem to be obliquely related to the famed vinyl-maker Bullmark, but even this remains in the realm of conjecture. In spite of the questions surrounding Ark's hazy background, there's absolutely no doubt about the fact that their series of six "Arklon" diecast monster toys represent everything that's right about Japanese toy-design.

Tonner Doll Co. 2008 SDCC Exclusives: Arkham Asylum Joker (100 pieces) and Phantom Zone Supergirl (200 pieces

Tonner had their duo of SDCC Exclusives on display: Arkham Asylum Joker (100 pieces) and Phantom Zone Supergirl (200 pieces).  They were selling quickly, as I saw one woman alone rack up an $800 bill.  I wouldn't expect the Joker to last through Saturday.
The rest of the display was made up of their DC Stars, Harry Potter, Tomb Raider and Pirates of the Caribbean lines.  I'm very excited to see that Kreacher has a price point set.  That must mean his really is approaching.

Spin Master Nov 2007 Lawsuit over Aqua Dots - Arkansas Democrat Gazette

No refunds for poison toy yields lawsuit
Arkansas Democrat Gazette, AR -

A Little Rock couple who bought a now-recalled Aqua Dots toy for their three young children are suing the American distributor of the toy who is refusing to refund their money and offering a “replacement” instead.
“Consumers do not want, nor should they be forced to accept, another toy from the same company that has been irresponsibly marketing and selling poison to their children,” charges the lawsuit, filed Thursday in federal court in Little Rock.
The lawsuit seeks class-action status, in the hopes of representing as many as 4. 2 million consumers across the country who bought the Chinese-made toy that was recalled on Nov. 7 for safety reasons and now can’t get their money back.
The craft toy, which allows children to create various multidimensional designs using small, colored beads, has been sold nationwide since April, retailing for between $ 17 and $ 30, according to the Web site of the U. S. Consumer Products Safety Commission.
A Jacksonville toddler is among children around the globe who have ingested the beads and then passed out or become ill after the beads’ coating metabolized into a chemical compound known as the “date rape drug.”
The boy, 20-month-old Jack Esses, slipped out of consciousness, waking only to throw up, after swallowing the beads on Oct. 30, said his mother, Shelby Esses. He was nearly unconscious when taken to Arkansas Children’s Hospital, but woke up after six hours and was quickly “back to his normal self,” his mother said.
The hospital conducted tests and consulted a toxicologist, who speculated that GHB, the so-called date rape drug, was the only drug to produce those effects.
After the boy’s mother got a list of the chemicals used to make the beads, the toxicologist recognized one that turns into GHB, or gamma hydroxy butyrate.
The compound can induce unconsciousness, drowsiness, coma and even death.
The toys, which have been distributed in 40 countries, were supposed to be made using a nontoxic compound found in glue, but instead were made with a compound widely used in cleaners and plastics that is significantly less expensive than the nontoxic compound.
The lawsuit filed Thursday by attorneys Alex G. Streett and his son, James A. Streett, both of Russellville, doesn’t seek damages for injuries. James Streett said Thursday evening that he didn’t know if lawsuits about the safety of the product have been filed elsewhere.
His clients, Donald C. Erbach Jr. and his wife, Stephanie Streett, both of Little Rock, are the parents of three children, ages 5, 4 and 1. The children, whom James Streett declined to identify by sex, weren’t harmed by the toy purchased from Wal-Mart in the summer, but could have been harmed by the “dangerous defects,” the lawsuit says.
James Streett also declined to say whether the attorneys are related to Stephanie Streett.
The lawsuit names as a defendant Spin Master LTD and Spin Master, Inc., which is based in Ontario, Canada, and has a showroom in Bentonville.
