About Round 5    
Round 5 is the premier manufacturer of officially licensed collectible figures based on the hottest sports and entertainment properties in the world. With a vast line of figures based on the most popular personalities in the sport of mixed martial arts and a new series of Bruce Lee-branded characters, Round 5 caters to a discerning market passionate about sports, entertainment and limited-edition collectibles. A Canadian company.

In 2007, brothers Damon and Barron Lau founded Round 5, naming the company in reference to the championship round of a mixed martial arts fight. Round 5 released their debut product line in 2008, which consisted of six-inch licensed collectible figures based on popular fighters and personalities from the sport of mixed martial arts and sold under the line “World of MMA”. Round 5 released a total four series under “World of MMA” before becoming a licensee of Zuffa, LLC, in late 2009. The line was then re-launched as “Ultimate Collector” under the Ultimate Fighting Championship brand. In 2011, Round 5 launched a line of licensed Bruce Lee collectible figures and toys and In 2012 launched a line of toys based off of Cut the Rope.
2010 Best Asia-Pacific Business Award goes to Round 5 Corporation.    
The brothers Damon and Barron Lau have been involved with mixed martial arts since they were kids. While working at their father's advertising company, Damon had an opportunity to meet mixed martial arts superstar: Randy Couture. After becoming good friends, they and the legend teamed up to form a business appropriately named Round 5.

It was during a brainstorming session where the two were talking about developing MMA related prodiucts, that Randy and the brothers Lau, came up with an idea about designing and manufacturing their first series of collectible Martial Arts figurines.

The brothers were a terrific team. Damon, with his sales and promotional skills managed to recruit Chinese manufacturers in Hong Kong to produce their collectibles, and brother Barron came up with the artistic designs. Patrick offered his advertising agency's resources and joined his sons on a quest to promote and market their products.

Large retailers like Walmart were one of the first to sign up to sell their figurines. Soon after, Round 5 acquired a licensing agreement with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) which now gives them access to literally hundreds of Martial Arts celebrities.

After their success with Walmart and signing with the UFC, Jakks Pacific, one of the biggest toy manufacturers in the world, wanted in on the action and formed a strategic alliance with the Lau's and now, Round 5 has access to many untapped international markets!

Today, over six-thousand (6000) retail outlets in North America including Toys-R-Us, Target, K-Mart, Zellers, Best Buy and of course, Walmart, carry their product. And the popularity of their figurines doesn't seem to be letting up. Sales continue to increase worldwide.
Round 5's beginnings    
It's more of a collector's item as opposed to a toy said Lau, the president and co-founder of Round 5 Corp., a Markham-based company that makes collectible figurines of athletes involved in Ultimate Fighting Championship competitions.Lau's staple product is a six-inch plastic collectible with caricature type style. They have really big heads and really big fists, but the faces look very real.

Since starting up in 2007, the company's products are sold in more than 7,000 stores across North America. Lau expects unit sales to top one million in 2010.The 29-year-old's success earned him a Chinese Canadian Entrepreneur Award nomination.

Lau has been martial arts fan since 1999 and has trained in mixed martial arts for about three years.He met Randy Couture, a former Olympic Greco-Roman wrestler and UFC champion, through advertising work for combat sport content provider The Fight Network.Lau describes him as the Michael Jordan of ultimate fighting. If you have watched UFC, you have watched Randy said Lau. A brainstorming session between Lau and Couture resulted in Round 5. Lau knew nothing about toys or retail but family in China provided financing and brought him to Hong Kong where he had about three weeks to learn the trade.

He started with Couture and fighters Tito Ortiz, Matt Hughes and Quinton Jackson.They now sell 35 figures, retailing in Canada for $14.99 and plan to boost that number to about 140 before 2012.In July, they signed a licensing agreement with the UFC and sales skyrocketed 700 per cent, said Lau. They've opened a Hong Kong office and plan to launch six new product lines by 2011.The U.S. is their main market, while Canadians account for 20 per cent of their sales.

It is not uncommon for Lau to get a call from a fighter asking when they can expect to be featured, or managers asking when the next product line is being produced. I find the athletes and their managers and industry people are actually bigger collectors than I am. They are fanatical.

MGA July 2009 Ohio offers Little Tikes 55% tax credit
The first piece of the puzzle in keeping toy manufacturer Little Tikes in Hudson has fallen into place. Officials for the toy maker's parent company — Van Nuys, Calif.-based MGA Entertainment, which also produces the Bratz dolls — have been in negotiations with the state and city of Hudson for three years asking for assistance to keep the headquarters off Barlow Road. Other states have been wooing Little Tikes to leave Hudson. On Monday, the Ohio Tax Credit Authority awarded MGA a 55 percent job creation tax credit for seven years, valued at $134,228, for a Little Tikes expansion project in Hudson. The $5.8 million project is expected to create 63 positions and retain 398 jobs. If the company accepts the tax credit, it would be required to maintain operations in Hudson for 14 years. Ohio Department of Development spokesman Bob Grevey said it's a company's prerogative whether to utilize or accept a tax credit offered by the state. ''The tax credit award is not a final step, but it's an important step. It is not uncommon for us, when companies like Little Tikes come to us for help, to construct a package of incentives,'' Grevey said. In a prepared statement, Little Tikes Worldwide General Manager Tom Richmond said, ''though we are very pleased with this first step, the Job Creation Tax Credit is just one part of a total economic package of which Little Tikes is awaiting word from the state. Once we have the total package, which should be the end of July, we'll be able to make our decision.'' He declined further comment through a spokeswoman. Chuck Wiede, Hudson economic development director, said the tax credit is a step toward keeping Little Tikes. The city of Hudson has also offered a job creation tax credit to Little Tikes in the form of a local match. The city would give the company a municipal income tax grant of 50 percent for six years, which is valued at about $123,000, said Wiede. ''The state is still working on about three other pieces that they need to come together with. We hope to have an answer with the state by the end of July,'' he said. The actions by the state are not a guarantee that Little Tikes will stay, but Wiede said he believes ''it's a very, very positive first step. If they really didn't want to stay in Hudson, they wouldn't have gone through the application process and go through appearing in front of the Tax Authority. ''I think they truly, truly want to stay in Hudson. They are being thrown some ridiculously crazy offers from other states,'' Wiede said. Wiede acknowledged that tax credits from the state and Hudson amounting to about $250,000 aren't going to be enough to keep Little Tikes. Wiede said MGA Chief Executive Officer Isaac Larian has been very clear that the company needs help to stay in Hudson. ''We've come to a middle ground,'' Wiede said. Wiede and Grevey both said they could not discuss what other incentives the state might be able to offer, but Wiede said part of the state package includes work force training. Hudson also has committed to match one of the grants the state is considering, but Wiede said he could not go into details. The toy company is offering to expand its operations to invest in new machinery and equipment and upgrade some tooling to make the facility more productive, said Wiede.

Round 5 June 2009 Gina “Conviction” Carano Action Figure Coming From Round 5

Very cool news for fans of MMA. Known to many as the “face of female mixed martial arts,” Gina “Conviction” Carano has parlayed great ability in the cage and a glamorous look out of it to burst onto the MMA scene and in many ways transcended the sport.
Now, the unbeaten star has announced she will be working with Round 5, the leader in collectible MMA figurines, to produce a figure that reflects her stardom. Carano joins an All-Star lineup of 13 MMA standouts who currently work with Round 5.
Carano, 26, gained notice for her success in the cage and has earned additional attention with appearances as “Crush“ on the NBC television series “American Gladiators“ and by serving as a mentor/coach on the Oxygen network series “Fight Girls.” She is also in many ways a pioneer in women’s MMA, competing in the first-ever sanctioned bout in Nevada in September 2006 and in the first female bout (boxing or MMA) on the Showtime Network in February 2007. She currently owns a 7-0 record in MMA competition.
“Gina Carano has emerged as a star, not just in MMA but in the mainstream,” said Damon Lau, Round 5 President. “As the first female in the Round 5 line, we expect her figurine to be popular among the sport’s enthusiasts as well as those who have seen her on TV or in magazines.”
gina-carano
“I’m incredibly blessed to be a part of so many wonderful opportunities and to now be included in Round 5’s line up of gifted fighters is another exciting privilege,” said Carano. “When I was a little girl my dad always joked about making a ‘Gina doll’ and I smile when I think it has become a reality. It is both humbling and invigorating to consider this is just the beginning with so many other gifted women whose figurines are yet to be made.”
The Carano figurine is tentatively scheduled to be released as part of Series 4, which is planned for a summer 2009 release. As in the earlier Series, Carano will maintain creative control of her likeness, including the pose, facial design and shorts. She will have a major hand in creating the final design and will benefit from a royalty agreement that gives her a considerable portion of the proceeds from the sale of her unit.
Round 5 has announced partnerships with 13 mixed martial arts stars to date, with eight figurines already available: Randy Couture, Matt Hughes, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson and Tito Ortiz (Series 1); and Rich Franklin, Sean Sherk, Anderson Silva and Wanderlei Silva (Series 2). Series 3 figurines are scheduled to be available in April, featuring Andrei “The Pit Bull” Arlovski, “Big John” McCarthy, Frank Mir and Antonio Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira. International superstar Fedor Emelianenko has also signed on and will be in a future Series in 2009.
Round 5 collectible figures may be purchased at leading retailers such as Toys ‘R’ Us (Canada), Champs Sports and FYE. Other retailers can be found at www.Round5MMA.com/wheretobuy.php.
In addition to Carano, Round 5 plans to release collectibles of three more series of athletes in 2009, one during each quarter. Other athletes to be represented in those series are yet to be announced.
About Round 5
Round 5 (www.Round5MMA.com), headquartered in Markham, Ontario, Canada, is the MMA industry’s fastest growing worldwide collectible figure company. Committed to developing intricately detailed figures, Round 5 strives to remain true to the sport of MMA and its personalities.

Toys R Us June 2009 Amazon to pay Toys 'R' Us $51m compensation

Online seller Amazon is to pay toy chain Toys ‘R’ Us, which operates 1,000 stores out of 35 countries, $51 million to settle a dispute filed in 2004.
Nine years ago the two parties signed a ten-year long cobranded marketing deal, which for $200 million gave gave Toys ‘R’ Us exclusive rights to sell certain toy brands on amazon.com. By 2004, however, Toys ‘R’ Us was disillusioned with the deal and claimed breach of contract, accusing Amazon of allowing other third-party merchants to sell the products in question on its website.

Amazon countered the claim by saying Toys ‘R’ Us had failed to keep products in stock, thereby discouraging potential customers and restricting sales.
In March 2006, a New Jersey judge ruled in favour of Toys ‘R’ Us and ordered Seattle-based Amazon to pay an undisclosed sum in damages. The partnership between the two businesses was ended and the protracted legal wranglings continued until this week, when the matter was finally settled.
In a document filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Amazon announced its intention to pay the money in Q3 2009 (which starts on July 1), saying the 'unanticipated' expense would be charged to 'other operating expenses' during Q2.
Despite this setback, the etail giant is steamrollering its way through the recession, posting a 24 per cent leap in profits for Q12009 and now focusing on strengthening its hugely successful business model even further. Chief executive Jeff Bezo says the success is largely down to a minute focus on customer service.
Toys ‘R’ Us, meanwhile, is aiming to capitalise on the down-trading trend of America’s recession with the introduction of “$1-$2-$2 Fun” mini shops near the front of its store locations, selling value items such as puzzles, jewellery and small toys at budget prices.

Fisher-Price June 2009 Little People 50th birthday Live Tour

When she was a young girl, Angie Gawle watched as a circus train crashed on the carpet, spilling the ringmaster and animals across the living room floor. Photo59&Ref=AR&MaxW=200>

A giraffe, an elephant, and a lion prowled about the house as Angie tended to the passengers and bystanders, a bunch of Little People who today live in her attic.

At age 36, the Toledoan still plays with her collection of Little People when her young relatives visit. They like the vintage people - the Fisher-Price Play Family members made of wood. Later, Little People models were produced in plastic.

This year marks the 50th birthday for the Little People, and to help the tiny toy tykes celebrate, Fisher-Price is presenting the first-ever nationwide Little People Live Tour. The Toledo Zoo is one of only six stops on the tour. The show, set for performances today and tomorrow, will be staged in the zoo's historic amphitheater.

Fisher-Price is the sponsor of the new Little People Discovery Stage, one feature of Nature's Neighborhood which opened yesterday at the zoo.

The Little People stage is a 50-seat amphitheater where programs on pet care and conservation, plus other activities and events, will be presented, said Andi Norman, zoo spokesman.
Little People continue to be popular, both as toys and as much-sought-after collectibles.

Miss Gawle, store manager of the Goodwill Industries location in downtown Toledo, knows people have a passion for Little People. No longer are the collectible pieces of the play sets put on store shelves; instead, they are put up for auction on Goodwill's Web site, along with fine jewelry, paintings, and glassware.

Members of a collectors club meet to swap and sell the Little People, and Web sites offer the toys for sale at much higher prices than the original prices.

Allison Kiesel of Tiffin is a collector and a seller. Born in 1972, she played with Little People years ago and she makes extra money today buying low and selling high.

Ask how many pieces in her collection, and she pauses. 'Oh gosh. I have about every set made.' There's the swimming pool and hospital and houses and lots and lots of moms and dads and boys and girls and animals. She displays some; stores others.

'The resale market is real good. I have been selling on or off for six or seven years. Never really has the market gone down in value. I never have a problem selling them.'

Recently she sold the Little People action garage for $202.50; she bought it at a Tiffin flea market for $5.

Little People came with several styles of headgear - caps with bills (police women, tow truck drivers); caps with an M-shape (pilot, boat captain, mailman), and helmets (race car driver, motorcycle driver), for instance.

Hair styles were plastic or painted: buns, bald, bobs, braids. Body colors and styles, varied, too, through the decades, as did facial features.

To keep things interesting in the world of pretend, some Little People were born as frowning, freckle-faced kids, known as the meanies or bullies.

One fan posted a comment online that helps explain the popularity of the playthings:

'I always liked the one that I called 'the Bully.' He is the one with the red hat and mean expression. He was the brunt of all school bus crashes, cow and horse stampedes, and was often pushed off the top of the barn. I guess it was good that I took out my aggressions on these little people instead of the real ones around me … ;o).'

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.
 
 
src=http://www.mania.com/content_pics/00000<b5/70/50/1e0792f67e5765cb_thumb.jpg>  I wish to coin a phrase here in my toy column: the Summer of Spock. Sure most of us can barely remember the movies in May when we get to late July but this summer started off with a bang. That bang was the return of Spock. Leonard Nimoy’s

Round 5 June 2009 MMA Champions series - Cung Le figure

The last thing Cung Le expected was to have an figurine made in his image. Well, he will now have one thanks in part to Round 5, which is set to release a Cung Le figurine in July as part of its MMA Champions series.
The company, which has released action figures of other MMA superstars Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson, Anderson Silva and Wanderlei Silva, announced Le would join Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua, Matt Serra, Dan Henderson, Fedor Emeliankenko and Gina Carano in their series four release. The six-fighter set is the largest Round 5 has released.
The decision was easy for Round 5 President Damon Lau, 'Cung Le's popularity across a wide range of audiences made him an ideal partner for Round 5.  Besides his international following in MMA and kick boxing, his growing movie career is gaining him a new set of fans.  He was very involved in the process of creating his figurine, and we think the finished product reflects the hard work he put into it.'
Le was honored to have a figurine made in his likeness, joining an elite level of fighters who have been immortalized by Round 5.
'I feel blessed,' Le said. 'Every day I wake up, thank God that I get the chance to be who I am. I'm grateful to live and have all that I have and the people around me. ... It's just awesome.'
Le will be spending time at ComicCon in San Diego from July 23-26 to promote the figurine and other the movies he has been working on including 'Pandorum,' which is set for release on Sept. 4.
'I’m going to be quite busy out there,' Le said.
The action figure, the budding acting career are all part of Le's growing stardom in the mainstream. It also has provided him other means to help support his family outside of the cage.
“I count my blessing and I'm happy to provide for my family and two boys,” he said. “I'm getting married in August. I'm very lucky.”
When asked what the coolest thing about his action figure, Le simply replied,' It kinda looks like me. That's the cool thing.'
Le is undefeated in MMA competition, boasting a 6-0 career record. He has finished all of his fights by knockout or technical knockout. He claimed the Strikeforce middleweight championship, following a three-round epic that saw Le break Frank Shamrock’s arm to win the title.
Le hasn’t set a return date, though he did admit that he was starting to get the itch to fight again and wanted to get back into training for a fight.
Looks like fans will have to wait for Le’s return, but in the mean time, they can get their Cung Le fix by watching his movies and collecting his action figure.
Fans can purchase all Round 5 figures at www.round5mma.com, and at selected Toys R Us locations.

Mattel Oct 2007 recalls 55,000 Go Diego Go Animal Rescue Boat toys in the United States

Mattel has recalled another one of its toys over concerns of lead paint content, its fourth product recall in six months.
The toymaker's preschool division, Fisher-Price, has recalled 55,000 Go Diego Go Animal Rescue Boat toys in the United States, Canada, Ireland and Britain as part of its ongoing investigation of its Chinese-made products.
The recall represents approximately 5,500 toys in Canada.
Mattel said surface paints on the orange and yellow boat could contain excessive amounts of lead. The toy boat, whose Fisher-Price product number is K3413, squirts water and has cartoon character Diego in the driver's seat. It has been sold since June 2007 for approximately $15.
The company is recalling products manufactured between May 17, 2007 and Aug. 11, 2007, with date codes between 137-7HF and 223-7HF marked on the toys.
Mattel noted that there have been no incidents or injuries reported to date in association with this particular toy.
Earlier this year, Mattel ordered three recalls involving more than 21 million toys made in China.

Hasbro Oct 2007 G.I.Joe Question & Answers With Hasbro Round 4

G.I.Joe Question & Answers With Hasbro Round 4
Each month we submit 5 reader-generated questions to the Hasbro design team for G.I.Joe. Here is the latest batch of questions and answers for October:

TNI: Will the figures in the special wave of single-carded box set figures coming out at the end of the year be the exact same figures as those already released, or will some of the joint and articulation problems be fixed on these versions?

Hasbro: They will be exactly the same as the figures in the box sets. Look for new articulation in the first wave of 2008.

TNI: Exactly what will people have to do to get the very cool-looking Doc mail-away figure shown at this year's Con?

Hasbro: To get Doc, fans will have to send in 6 proof of purchase stickers from the Comic Packs.


TNI: Can you tell us more about the rank building evolution type sets to be released at TRU stores (as announced at this year's Con)? How many figures will be released in each set, what figures will be in the initial sets, and will these be new figures or just re-released ones?

Hasbro: We will be debuting these at the GI Joe Club soon. These packs will have three figures and highlight the ranks of both Cobra and GI Joe.


TNI: Will the new IG Destro have a soft good cape or a hard plastic cape?

Hasbro: This will be soft goods.


TNI: Word at the convention was that a Crimson Guard Commander comic 2-pack would be released in the second wave of comic packs. Is this true?

Hasbro: Other than the wave 1 Comic Pack characters, we've only confirmed the Dreadknoks comic pack.

Exclusive 1/55 Scale Battle Damaged Strike Valkyrie


So here is a little story about how CollectionDX really started whether Josh admits it or not. The story about the first Japanese toy I got from Macross, the first toy that cost over $100, the toy I brought over the Pacific Ocean, the toy that survived a house fire, the toy that I nonchalantly gave away a few years later and how it came back to me.

May, 1986. Honolulu, Hawaii. I am 13 years old and about to graduate from Junior High and at the beginning of the summer we are moving to Massachusetts. There was a small hobby/toy shop that opened near my school and I had become friendly with the owner.

I would stop in day after day to chat and stare at the Valkyries he had for sale with their prices keeping them firmly out of my reach. Then one day the Hikaru Strike Valkyrie from the movie disappeared from the shelf. Now I would never get it!
Turns out, Mom bought it and gave it to me as a graduation gift. I was overjoyed and loved it. Shortly after that I obtained a few more Valkyries. A few months later we crossed the Pacific Ocean and my growing collection of Macross and Mospeda toys came with me.

Transformers Grabs $70.5M In Weekend Actuals
This is a little bit behind of the actual release of the weekend actual figures for the box office, but we felt this was important to put out there. We reported that the studios estimated that 'Transformers' has taken in $67.6 Million on Sunday, but the actual figure is approximately $3 Million higher at $70.5 Million. The movie has also grabbed a little below $10 Million alone on Monday, according to Box Office Mojo. This puts 'Transformers' at $165.3 Million domestic gross. Addin

Medicom Dec 2007 RAH220 N0 51 Kamen Rider X
Well, I give it to Medicom, they're constantly improving their products. I really liked the old RH220 line from back then except the QC more than killed the fun of collecting them. After a hiatus they've gone back to the RH220 line and I can say that everything is good. They've recently announced their new RAH220 No.51, which happens to be X-Rider.

This looks damn good, I MIGHT be tempted to get it. Why am I not 100% positive about it? Easy, I'm broke. That'll be our little secret.

Retail 10,290 Yen and the release date is December of 2007.<>

The Children's Museum June 2007 Purchases Star Wars Collection of 5000 pieces.

As a teen, Randy Barker daydreamed about sharing his Star Wars collection in a museum. Now, his dream has become reality.

Star Wars Collection
• When: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. (Opening day)
• Where: The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, 3000 N. Meridian St.
• Tickets: $12.50, $11.50 for seniors, $7.50 for youths.
• Info: (317) 334-3322; www.childrensmuseum.org.
 
Starting Saturday, The Children's Museum, which purchased Barker's collection on April 21, will offer a sneak preview of some of the 5,000 pieces Barker has collected over the years.

'It's a big day,' said Barker, who will be on hand from 10 a.m. until noon Saturday to talk with visitors. 'I'm excited to get to see people enjoying the collection.'
Janna Bennett, curator of the museum's American Collection, said a wide variety of pieces will be placed in 23-foot and 7-foot glass cases on the second floor as part of displays celebrating the 30th anniversary of the first 'Star Wars' film.

'It's always really wonderful when we can honor somebody's vision,' Bennett said of Barker's collection. 'He has dedicated 30 years of his life to this.'
Bennett expects the display to remain up through September.

Barker, a 33-year-old data processor from Indianapolis, began collecting Star Wars items after seeing the original film as a 3-year-old in 1977.
The collection even includes an Underoos T-shirt Barker's parents bought him that year.
'His personal connection is embodied in saving that Underoos T-shirt,' Bennett said. 'That shows how passionate he was about 'Star Wars.' '
 
Barker said he and his parents, who are antique collectors, lost very few of his Star Wars items through the years. 'I always felt like it was something worth hanging onto,' he said.
The collection's highlights include a nearly full set of the original Kenner action figures in mint condition; a wide variety of items from the later films still in the original packaging; a life-size Darth Maul figure; and a vintage R2D2 cooler.
'The depth of the collection is incredible,' Bennett said. 'He's done the work to put all of this together over the years. Now, we can do what a museum does best and give it to our visitors.'
Knowing that people would continue to enjoy his collection for years to come helped Baker part with the Star Wars-related toys and books that took up two rooms in his house.
'I thought I'd be sad losing the collection. But it hasn't been a sad thing at all,' he said. 'I'm happy to know that it is going to be preserved and will be around as long as The Children's Museum.'
Barker said the physical preservation of the items was another motivating factor for selling the collection. 'It had grown so big, I couldn't take care of it the way it needed,' he said. 'The museum can do those things better.'

OMG SV-51 OMG!

For years I have wanted a transformable action figure of the totally wicked SV-51 Variable Fighter, more commonly known as the Valkyrie piloted by Ivanov, Roy Fokker’s mentor (IIRC). There were two versions in the show, structurally the same but painted differently. The sleek black plane is Ivanov’s while the striking streaked purple one is Nora’s. I hear rumours that Yamato is planning to release SV-51 in both colours as variants.
Oh my god. I MUST get this. Btw the guy who designed Macross Valkyries, Kawamori Shoji, also did Eureka seveN, Escaflowne and Aquarion’s mecha designs. Notice a common pattern? ALL of them are bloody fantastic.
I remember mentioning that YF-19 would be my first Macross buy, but in the end, I didn’t get it. I can still, but that’ll depend on how much money I get for Chinese New Year. It would be awesome to get all 3, but I doubt I could afford it.
The aircraft mode of SV-51 looks by far the best out of all the Valkyries, with only YF-19 coming close. It’s sharp highly angled design reminds me of a futurised F-22. In fact, SV-51 is in my hall of fame for aircraft design (Yukikaze ver 2, Vanship make up the others). The gerwalk mode is even better, with the thrusters splitting three ways instead of the more common two, to form 'chicken legs' reminiscent of the Mechwarriors. The SV-51 looks best in this mode.
The Battroid mode is a bit weaker, with the rather ugly samurai helmet design and monster-sized groin area.
This action figure is from Yamato and 1/60 scale. Rather than PVC, most of it is ABS plastic. Not sure of the price, release date yet.

Hasbro Feb 2007 Star Wars - 501st Stormtrooper Figure - TheForce.net - Auction
The good folks at Lucasfilm Ltd. have asked us to auction a very special action figure to raise funds for the AIDS Emergency Fund. Your ENTIRE bid (except for seller's fees) will go toward these vital charities as part of a company-wide fundraising effort at Lucasfilm Ltd.
The 5>501st Stormtrooper Action Figure was first made available last year as a San Diego Comic-Con International exclusive. After it sold out it was made available via Hasbro's online shop, without the Comic Con logo, and that version also sold out. These two figures were then transformed into gifts for the participants in the 'Star Wars Spectacular' entry in this year's Tournament of Roses Parade.
Each of these very limited figures contains an actual George Lucas 501st Honorary Membership trading card and a 'Thank You' paragraph on the back along with the Star Wars Spectacular Rose Parade seal. These figures were available only to marchers from the 501st Legion, members of the Grambling State University marching band and to a select number of helpers.'

There are two versions: with Comic-Con logo and without Comic-Con logo.
