Palm Springs - Uncle Don's Toys store - A fond memory for many

PALM SPRINGS - Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond and Red Skelton poked around in Uncle Don's Toys when locals were 'villagers' in this famed winter resort.
They got a smile from a kindly gentleman behind the counter named Don Du Bose and left with birthday presents and Christmas gifts wrapped in trademark paper -- a candy stick attached.
Uncle Don's Toys opened in 1955 and finally shuttered in 1990 -- a casualty of competition in an industry where many mom-and-pop toy stores couldn't compete with the giants.
But while the store disappeared long ago, the red-and-white wrapping paper bound up in so many childhood memories -- with its distinctive stick cowboy figure -- rides again.
Du Bose kept several 50-pound rolls tucked away of his special wrapping paper until a chance meeting prompted a free giveaway campaign at the Palm Springs Historical Society (221 S. Palm Canyon Drive: 760-323-8297).

He had all the good toys, the latest toys,' said Pennington, a Rialto resident. 'Uncle Don's ... everybody just knew where that was.
In 1957, a toy supermarket opened that would eventually become an $11 billion business with 1,600 stores worldwide -- Toys 'R' Us.

In the early 1960s, discount stores like Target and Wal-Mart took a bite out of the toy market department stores once reigned over.
In 2001, half of the top six toy retailers in the country were discount chains, according to the Toy Industry Association.
Business Drops
Finally, the cash register stopped ringing so much at Uncle Don's
Du Bose, who survived summers so slow that he could pitch pennies at the white line running down the main drag in Palm Springs, couldn't compete with a new, cost-cutting Thrifty Drug that sold Barbies a dollar cheaper. Longtime customers wondered if they were two different-sized dolls.
Du Bose, 76, grew up in his dad's dime store in Palm Springs -- running the toy department.
At one time, Uncle Don's had 250 in-store charge accounts -- before credit cards became popular.
But 17 years ago after a final Christmas sale, Uncle Don's closed for the last time -- a two-story, 8,500-square-foot store at 296 N. Palm Canyon Drive at Amado Road.
But there's no regrets from a man who jetted to toy shows in Nuremberg, Germany, and New York and made many pilgrimages to FAO Schwartz.
'I didn't realize how many people knew me until I retired,' Du Bose said. 'And to this day, they still say, 'Aren't you Uncle Don? I grew up in your store.' '

Rocket World Spring 2007 Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo (IWG)- Series 4 - Candace and Burnum - review

Img_1755
Background
Rocket World introduced Series 4 of their Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo (IWG) line earlier in the year.  The four piece rotocast vinyl series was broken into two releases – Makutu and Oishi were released around March and Candace and Burnum have recently been made available.

With a temper to match her mass, Candace will rampage poachers' campsites without quarter. Very protective of her loved ones and her I.W.G. team members, Candace is considered to be the group's mother figure and loved equally in return.

No stranger to being hunted, and sometimes overly sensitive to his unique nature, Burnum is quick to start a fight with offending humans. Burnum often kicks it with Irra and Makutu, not just because they have all have beaks or bills, but they share a love of home decor.

Packaging
All of the packaging in Series 4 is similar, however the size of the box varies due to the different sizes of the figures inside.  The vinyl toys are secured in a plastic tray that makes it easy to remove, while the window front box will please those folks who like to keep things mint in box.

The Figures
Candace the African Elephant is 7” in height with 7 points ofarticulation (that has to be lucky, right?).  She is armed with an RPG(rocket propelled grenade) that is two separate pieces.  The figure islimited to a run of

McFarlane Spring 2008 Halo 3 Toys
Two powerhouses of pop culture are collaborating, as McFarlane Toys has announced a licensing agreement with Microsoft to produce action figures based on the hit video game series Halo. Halo 3 is scheduled to arrive in stores later this year.

The action figure lineup expected to be released is as follows:

Master Chief
Brute Chieftain
Jackal Sniper
Grunt 2-Pack
Cortana

There is also a three vehicle line-up that includes: Warthog, Chopper and Ghost. These vehicles are die cast metal/plastic, playable toys measuring 3 ½ inches on a custom base.

The figures are expected to hit store shelves Spring 2008.

“Halo is one of the top video game franchises of all time,” says McFarlane Toys CEO, Todd McFarlane. “We get to put our company’s touch on a sci-fi epic that is visually and thematically stunning. Through its game-play, Halo has been able to attract a very large and loyal audience, most of whom happen to be our customers as well, which makes this an excellent partnership.”

Halo follows the events of an inter-galactic war between the last surviving members of the human race and an advanced collection of alien races known as The Covenant. The first title in the series, Halo: Combat Evolved, was the flagship title for Microsoft's Xbox video game console when it was released in 2001. The game achieved both critical acclaim and financial success, selling more than 6 million copies worldwide.
Halo 2 was released in 2004, breaking sales records (more than 7 million copies worldwide) and becoming the fastest-selling media product in US history.

Hasbro 2007 Inventor of Super Soaker hails from Sandy Springs - Atlanta Journal Constitution
Inventor of Super Soaker hails from Sandy Springs

By JON WATERHOUSE
For the Journal-Constitution
Published on: 05/28/07
In the early '80s, Lonnie Johnson of Atlanta fashioned a Coke bottle, PVC pipe and plexiglass into a high-powered water gun. It became a hit with his daughter and her friends — and revolutionized a summertime staple.
Q: Before inventing the Super Soaker you concentrated on science — why did you create a toy?
Courtesy of Lonnie Johnson
(ENLARGE)
'With the Super Soaker, kids who had a conventional gun just couldn't get close to you,' says creator Lonnie Johnson.
 

A: As a frustrated inventor, it was extremely difficult getting investors or the financial support needed to place one of my ideas. So I decided to do the toy and give it priority because it was something that anybody could look at and appreciate. And I felt that I could license it a lot easier. ... I always knew it was a great toy because I used it and my daughter used it. It was very apparent that it had the kind of excitement and magic that suggested success.
Q: Why do you think it revolutionized water gun play?
A: First, it's the look of the gun. I was working at NASA at the time and working on outer-planetary spacecraft. So a pressure bottle integrated into the system sort of has that spacey look. ... That was about the time that toy guns that looked like real guns were falling out of favor, and there was a need for a new look. The Super Soaker actually brought that fresh look ... but [the main thing was] performance. With the Super Soaker, kids who had a conventional gun just couldn't get close to you. You could shoot a lot more water, and they would end up a lot wetter.
Q: Do you still work with toys?
A: Yes, I have an ongoing interaction with Hasbro. I come up with new gun ideas and submit them. Hasbro makes improvements, and all of those things are covered under our contracts. All of the patents for the water guns are licensed to Hasbro. I have a number of ideas I'm working on, and some I'd like to get to as soon as I have the time. But the other toy that's been successful for me are the Nerf dart guns. About half of Hasbro's Nerf guns are based on my patents.

McDonalds Spring 2007 'Idol' promotion - Hollywood Reporter

'Idol' promo partners are lovin' it
Hollywood Reporter, CA -
NEW YORK -- Simon Cowell is not always the friendliest guy around, but that's not stopping 'American Idol' from teaming with McDonald's for a Happy Meal promotion.

'Idol' also has lined up off-air promotions with Pringles and Samsung, along with previously announced promotional partners Nestle and Dreyer's ice cream.

It is the first season that 'Idol,' known for its prominent on-air integrations and sponsorships, has launched a major off-air promotional program with advertisers.

A spokeswoman for McDonald's confirmed that the 'Idol' promotion involves Happy Meals but declined to provide further details. She said it will involve the usual Happy Meal media mix, which most often involves TV spots. McDonald's is close to finalizing the deal with 'Idol' co-producer and licenser FremantleMedia and 'Idol' creator 19 Entertainment, she said

Sideshow Hot Toys Spring 2007 Alien warrior from Alien vs Predator - Review!
Hot Toys Alien Warrior Review
I remember seeing Alien at the theater in 1979. The hype machine had done a great job, and both the posters and the tagline ('In space, no one can hear you scream') had the horror fans geeked. The relatively unknown actress Sigourney Weaver starred, with a solid cast of character actors supporting her. The film combined a great script with excellent direction and acting to create one of the top horror movies of all time.

But no matter how good the rest of a horror film might be, it absolutely has to have a fantastic monster design to become one of the greats. And Alien, and the follow-up films Aliens, Aliens 3, Alien Resurrection and Alien vs. Predator, had exactly that. The main protagonist was designed by the great H.R. Giger, who won an Academy Award for his work. The alien (or Xenomorph, as it was referred to in later films) taps into our basic fears of all things insect-like and slimy, and when you throw in not one but two sets of big nasty teeth, you've got the perfect nightmare on two legs.
Hot Toys has been producing sixth scale figures based on the various films. We've got the marine Hicks, with Apone, Hudson, and Drake along with Ripley coming soon. A sixth scale Power Loader for Ripley was shown at Toy Fair, and you can order all these goodies from Sideshow. They are distributing the figures in the U.S. for Hot Toys. Model Kit Model Kit Model Kit Model Kit Model Kit Model Kit Power Loader Accessory
But what good would all those people be without Aliens to battle? Today I'm looking at their Alien Warrior based on the look in the film Alien vs Predator. They are also doing a Warrior based on the Aliens film that will be released in 2007. How far off can an Alien Queen be?

Master Replicas Spring 2007 Yoda Force FX Lightsaber

src=http://www.andrewstoyzimages.com/products/MR/MR-870.jpg



Since Master Replicas released the very first Force FX Lightsaber in 2002, fans have been clamoring for a Yoda Force FX. Unfortunately, due to the small size of Yodas hilt, Master Replicas team of product designers and engineers have been unable to fit all of the necessary light and sound technology in place to create a “realistic” Yoda FX that would live up to the standards of its predecessors that is, until now!  With recent breakthroughs in Force FX technology, we are pleased to announce that the Yoda Force FX Lightsaber has become a reality!

Since Yoda was created digitally for the prequel trilogy, his lightsaber was also a digital construct. And so, Lucasfilm once again granted Master Replicas engineers access to the ILM computer files and reference images, allowing for the creation of the most authentic, realistic Force FX lightsaber possible. While the Yoda Force FX Lightsaber is smaller than anything released to date measuring roughly 33-inches (including the blade), versus average Force FX which measures 44 inches remember, as Yoda taught us, “Size Matters Not!”
And of course, the Yoda Force FX features:

 An enhanced glowing green blade with realistic power-up and power-down light effects. The power-up and power-down light effects are produced by a string of 64 super-bright LEDs that ignite sequentially inside the blade.

Five motion sensor controlled sound effects digitally recorded from the movie: power-up, idle hum, swing, clash, and power-down.

3 built-in motion sensors for super sensitivity: 2 for detecting movement and 1 for detecting the impact of the blade.

A durable metal hilt looks and feels like a real lightsaber.

A sturdy blade is permanently attached to the hilt.

Bandai Jan 2007 'Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive' Spring 2007 Toy Line-Up - Animation Insider

'Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive' Spring 2007 Toy Line-Up
Animation Insider, NY -
Celebrating fifteen seasons on air, the Power Rangers property continues to thrive. Providing action and adventure for eager television viewers who want a little bit more superhero transforming action than the average kid, Power Rangers has developed and evolved in a wide number of ways over the many years and has continued to appeal to key demographics year after year. Thanks to willing television programming blocks and generous consumer product producers and distributors, the Power Rangers necessarily property has reached other media interests with ease. Last fall, the Power Rangers: Mystic Force toy line was incredibly popular [related A.I. news: 'Mystic Force Toy Line-Up']; so naturally, from Bandai America Inc., this Spring will see another new toy line hit the store shelves with the Power Rangers name on it. First quarter 2007 will see Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive toys will be available.

Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive is scheduled to air well over fifty times weekly on Toon Disney's JETIX action and adventure programming block on ABC Kids come March 2007. Fans of the franchise have followed the production of toy lines for years, and the popularity of 'Operation Overdrive' may once again prove the indelible connection between television programming and successful consumer products. The battle of good versus evil in the world of the Power Rangers has never been so popular. Much of the property's popularity can also be attributed to Bandai America and Disney creating a near seamless brand story that translates from the television series to retail, enabling kids to play out the adventures as their favorite Power Ranger hero in their own homes.

'Bandai America is set to celebrate the evergreen success of the Power Rangers brand with a new breakthrough toy line that really allows young kids to live, breathe and play like their favorite Power Rangers hero,' Matt Golding, director of marketing commented. 'This expanded lineup for Operation Overdrive features more transforming toys than ever before, and new role-play accessories that truly deliver on the show's themes by allowing kids to play out the treasure hunting adventures in unique ways.'

'As the longest running kids' show to date, Power Rangers is Disney Consumer Products' largest boys franchise, and special tributes are being planned for its 15th season on air,' Heather Rubaum, director of boys/film franchise, Disney Consumer Products stated. 'In addition to special-edition product, JETIX on-air stunts and a new Power Rangers Supersite at www.powerrangers.com, we're planning some special fan-driven events that audiences of season 1 to season 15 can all enjoy.'

Alter Spring 2007 Tsukino

I think I posted this a while back but there are more pictures now. And these promo pics look great! It is no wonder that Azuma Kazuma is so manly, for his lover is this hot. I remember writing that the maker is Happinet. Apparently not it seems.
Alter will be the ones making this figure while Aniplex is marketing it. It is set for a Spring release next year and has no fixed price yet. But it’s a MUST BUY! When I enter University next year for food science and technology, she’ll stand proudly beside my workdesk as the consultant.

Tsukino’s standing in an awesome pose. It’s a bit like Megahouse’s Xeres figure but even better. I think she’ll be my first tongue-out figure.
