McFarlane Sept 2007 'Spawn' creator eyes directing as empire grows - Reuters Canada

LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Todd McFarlane, the comic book artist who parlayed his character 'Spawn' into a mini media empire, wants to turn his talents in a new direction -- making movies.
'I'd like to do more directing than I've done,' McFarlane said. 'I've done music videos. I point to them and say, 'I'd like to make a 90-minute version of that.''
McFarlane said he is going after lower-budget ideas.
'You're going to have some young kid do those anyway, so let me have a crack at it.'
He spoke on the sidelines of an annual convention for video game retailer GameStop, where he was showing a new lineup of highly detailed toys based on Microsoft's upcoming 'Halo 3' title.
It's the latest high-profile job for McFarlane Toys, which has also crafted figures based on 'The Matrix' and 'Terminator' movies, as well as other popular video games such as 'Metal Gear Solid' and 'Soul Calibur.'
While McFarlane's background is in superheroes, half of his toy revenue these days comes from sports.
The National Football League, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association and National Hockey League all have deals to have McFarlane make figurines based on superstars in those sports.
A college baseball player and fan of America's national past-time, McFarlane turned heads in the sports world in 1998 when he started writing six- and seven-figure checks for historic baseballs such as the one Mark McGwire hammered to set the single-season home run record.
'That notoriety gets you into doors, then you got (deals for) four sports,' McFarlane said. 'Sometimes you've got to buy your way to the poker table.'

New hope for Star Wars empire - NEWS.com.au

Star Wars might have pioneered the blockbuster, invented movie merchandising and reinvented special effects since it exploded on to the screen a long time ago, in a cinema not too far away.

And it might have spawned a multibillion-dollar industry in its own right, with five subsequent films and countless licensed collectables.
But all good things must end, and with no further big-screen instalments planned by creator George Lucas, the future of the franchise might be looking a little shaky.
While the Star Wars sections of toy stores are shrinking, and licensees such as Master Replicas are ending their relationship with Lucasfilm, moviegoers are going ga-ga over Shrek and Pirates of the Caribbean. Last month it was Spider-Man.
But don't count Star Wars out just yet.

The thousands who flocked to Celebration IV show it still has a huge following, and while the franchise might have run its course on the big screen, it is about to be reinvented as a multimedia concern in TV shows, video games and other media.
One needs look no further than that other space phenomenon, Star Trek, to see how a sci-fi property can survive.
Since the original '60s series was cancelled after three seasons, Trek has gone from strength to strength with five spin-off series and 10 feature films.

It is about to be reinvented again with an 11th film that 'reimagines' the classic series of Captain Kirk and Mr Spock.
Now, having ushered in the age of the modern blockbuster with Star Wars, Lucas is ready to pronounce it dead.

Mattel May 2007 He-Man Movie Planned! - Empire Movies
A live-action version of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is in the works courtesy of producer Joel Silver and Warner Bros.

He-Man is based on the action figure created by Mattel and later turned into an animated series meant to promote the toy line. The series became a cult classic and He-Man was later turned into a movie starring Dolph Lundgren as the title character. The movie tanked.

Justin Marks will write the script for the new version which will update the story featuring He-Man as the last hope of a magical land called Eternia, which is being ravaged by technology and the evil Skeletor. The plan is to use similar visual effects to those used in 300.

Gentle Giant Nov 2007 Star Wars Darth Vader Empire Strikes Back Statue

Star Wars Darth Vader <b>Empire</b> Strikes Back Statue What is thy bidding, my master? These haunting words showed that as evil as Darth Vader seemed, that there was someone even more evil who was really in charge. This statue recreates the scene in which we see Darth Vader defer to a great power, plus it features a light-up display base just like in the movie. In the chaos that accompanied Palpatine's rise to power, Darth Vader became one of the Emperor's most loyal servants. The Emperor entrusted him with the elimination of the Jedi Knights. During these dark times, Darth Vader and his agents destroyed the remnants of Jedi order. Stands 11 1/2 inches tall. Limited edition.

Empire Toys was a subsidiary of a toy company called Empire of Carolina (formerly Carolina Enterprises, Inc.). Empire was a publicly traded toy company in the 70s and 80s that dealt with plastic toys and holiday goods but also had a habit of riding the coattails of the fads of the day.
Seeing as how Diecast robot toys were all the rage in 78, Empire decided to cash in. Somehow they came up with Star Mites, a line of diecast metal toys that was a mix of vehicles from Shinsei’s UFO Commander Series, and Yonezawa’s Astekaiser series. While a majority of the UFO Commander series came through unchanged, Astekaiser was used as the basis for an original line of figures. Astekaiser himself was never released as part of the line.
Star Mites had four figures based off of the Astekaiser mold.
  • Mars
  • Thor
  • Zeus
  • Spider Warrior

In some ways, these toys were better than the toy they were based off of. While Astekaiser was fragile, the Star Mites were solid, sturdy chunks of metal.

Empire Strikes Back Super-Deformed Boba Fett

Bf1_1 Bbf
The Empire Strike Back Super-Deformed Boba Fett VCD figure is exclusive to the Star Wars Shop.  You might be saying..."hasn't this figure already been released?"   Well, there is a Boba Fett VCD, but it's the Return of the Jedi version.  The color scheme is the main difference (with the Empire being a little lighter green).  Also, the weapons differ between the two Boba Fetts.  Look for this figure to ship in June 2007.

Medicom 2007 RAH Venom Is Revealed! - Empire Online

Sometimes studio marketing departments must want to tear their hair out. You spend a year on a project – let’s say Spider-Man 3, one of the most eagerly-awaited sequels of all time – and, apart from a quick, very blurry glimpse in one grainy teaser that made its way onto YouTube, and an official shot that shows pretty much nothing, you’ve managed to keep the look of your principal villain – let’s say Venom, the alien symbiote psycho who makes Spidey’s life hell – a secret.

And then a toy company with rights to the project – let’s say Medicom Toy Corporation – goes and releases an image of their Spider-Man 3 Venom toy, the latest in their line of Marvel RAH (Real Action Heroes) and the cat is out of the bag.
empireonline.com/images/image_index/hw120/15249.jpg width=50 align=absMiddle vspace=6> empireonline.com/images/image_index/hw120/15252.jpg width=50 align=absMiddle vspace=6> empireonline.com/images/image_index/hw120/15253.jpg width=50 align=absMiddle vspace=6>

And if you want to purchase one for the princely sum of $99, head on over to the brilliant Sideshow Toys. Of course, this won’t beat seeing Topher Grace (and a whole heap of CG) in the film version, but it’ll do in the meantime.

Immediate reaction? We likey. Sam Raimi and his design team have managed to strike a neat balance between the Venom of the comics and the new black costume that Spidey wears for much of Spider-Man 3 (which, of course, turns out to be the alien symbiote that tries to bond with Peter Parker, is rejected, and then latches onto Grace’s disgruntled photographer Eddie Brock, becoming the utterly looney tunes Venom).

Gone is the thick white spider emblem that dominates Venom’s chest in the funnybooks, instead replaced by the tenebrous grey lines of the black costume, but warped and twisted, to hint at the fragile mind of the Brock/alien combination. The hands are twisted into gnarled claws, and Venom is much more muscle-bound than Spidey, with the impression that things are almost busting out of the costume.
