This morning, Rob Zombie posted this look at what he's calling 'homeless Michael Myers' in action figure form. As we reported earlier, Mezco acquired collectible rights to the upcoming Halloween 2, which hits theaters on August 28th. The figure gives you an idea of what ol' Mikey (once again played by Tyler Mane) has been wearing in the two years since we last saw him get plugged by Laurie Strode in Halloween.

MGA 2008 July Lee & Associates Helps Bratz Dolls Find New $22 Million Home - FOXBusiness

REDLANDS, Calif., Jul 11, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) ----MGA Entertainment Inc., a Van Nuys-based company that manufactures the popular line of Bratz Dolls, has signed a $22.2 million, eight-year lease with AMB Property Corporation and will occupy 749,309-square-feet of warehouse space at 1651 California Street in Redlands, Calif.
Bill Heim, executive vice president, and Associate Eloy Covarrubias of Lee & Associates' Ontario office represented AMB.
'The AMB Redlands Distribution Center, located in the Los Angeles' Inland Empire submarket, is the largest building along the I-10 Corridor in the United States,' said Covarrubias. 'MGA Entertainment chose this location for its warehouse distribution facility because it's a cross-dock facility that will provide great benefits to its retail oriented warehousing.'
MGA Entertainment currently occupies a building in Rialto at 1464 Merrill Ave., but plans dual occupancy until December this year, then will move its entire warehouse operation to the Redlands facility.
MGA Entertainment was represented by Les Small & Company. John Meyer, Scott Recknor and Kim Snyder of AMB were also involved in the negotiations.
Since MGA's inception in 1997, the private company has continued to grow with the help of the phenomenal success of its Bratz Dolls line of toys.
The AMB Redlands Distribution Center is a 1.3 million square-foot building that MGA Entertainment will share with an existing user. The distribution center, which was built in 2007, has easy access to major freeway arteries, provides operational flexibility and has waste and water conservation systems, and energy-efficient lighting fixtures.
'The greater Inland Empire industrial market has developed into one of the most strategic distribution and logistic communities in the world,' says Heim. 'This distribution community, which harbors the goods directly from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, is uniquely positioned to handle the continued growth from the Pacific Rim.'

Ugobe Dec 2007 Pleo: Robo-dino ready for home - Boston Globe

Pleo (about $350 at pleoworld.com) looks like a dinosaur and acts like dog. The robot is laden with sensors. She curls and coos when you pet her, howls when you lift her by the tail, sniffs objects, and comes when you call her. (Pleo also has two microphones for hearing, and an infrared- and camera-based vision system for navigation and object avoidance.)
Ugobe says that Pleo's 'brains' (two 32-bit microprocessors) allow her to develop a personality. If you spend a lot of time stroking her, Pleo learns to stick around. If you tend to ignore her, she'll get in the habit of exploring your home on her own.
The emotional bond you form with the robot is largely a function of imagination. Pleo is capable of expressing emotion, not feeling it. And her groaning motors and servos are a constant reminder of its true nature.
Whether Pleo is a he or a she is up to you, by the way. Lifting Pleo's tail and finding nothing, my 4-year-old daughter, Maeve, named the robot Clementine.
Maeve last week covered Clementine with jewelry, and put the robot down for naps in a doll bed.
Pleo closes her eyes and snores when she naps.
Maeve's baby sister, Oona, 'feeds' Clementine her rubber leaf and plays tug-of-war, until the robot's rechargeable battery says that it's time to quit.
Clementine also appears to enjoy sniffing at our Standard Poodle's rawhide bone while the dog is chewing it.
Pleo has a USB port, an SD card slot, and an IR transceiver for upgrading the robot's behaviors and capabilities. Ugobe this week will release a behavior mode for Pleo that you can transfer onto an SD card.
Ugobe plans to release a developer's kit at some point, for those who want to further explore the company's Life Form Operating System.

Reitz Home Museum's 28th Annual Christmas Tour Dec 2007

Trains, tea sets, treasured dolls tell a tale of Victorian toys
Evansville Courier & Press (subscription), IN -

For kids, Christmas Eve is a restless night filled with anticipation of new toys under the tree the next morning. It was no different during the Victorian era when the Reitz children were growing up on Southeast First Street in one of Evansville's most magnificent houses. Kids are still the same, but the toys have changed.
The Reitz Home Museum's 28th annual Christmas tour, 'Christmas Through the Eyes of Children,' will feature several collections of antique toys from 1850-1920 in one of the most extensive antique toy exhibits ever displayed in Evansville.
For the first time, the Holiday World Toy Museum, the Evansville Museum and several private collectors from around the Tri-State have brought highlights from their collections together under one roof. China head dolls, delicate tea sets, German-made mechanical toys, and trains with intricate moving parts are just a few of the rare toys that will be on display at the Reitz Home from Friday through Jan. 6.
Uniting the toy collections at the Reitz Home for the Christmas season is the brainchild of Jim Sanders, a local antiques appraiser and toy collector. He and collector Pam Guthrie have helped to contact other collectors and organize the event.
The idea struck Sanders when Charles and the late Erma Hirsch donated French and German-made antique dolls and other toys to the Reitz Home. Sanders realized there was no better place to exhibit Victorian-era toys than in a Victorian-era house, and he wondered if others would be interested in loaning their collections for the Christmas tour. He was amazed by the response, and soon the Reitz Home's carriage house was stacked with boxes of toys from collectors eager to share their treasures.
Sanders says he thinks visitors will find the Hirsch collection as amazing as he does.
'The Hirsches started collecting these toys years ago when they were more easily available, but now they are rare,' Sanders says. 'It's mind-boggling that there's a complete collection like this in the area. It's such a rare and outstanding collection for the Reitz Home to own.'
Several items from Sanders' private collection will be on display, including metal banks shaped like various buildings and animals and a Noah's Ark, circa 1900.
'Christmas Through the Eyes of Children' gives visitors a rare opportunity to view toys that inhabited the make-believe worlds of generations of children. Sanders says he expects the theme to have wide appeal.

Sept 2007 Lead-testing kits for home not reliable enough for toys, experts say

The number itself is enough to make any parent cringe: 9 million, and climbing.That's how many toys and pieces of children's jewelry have been recalled so far this year for poisonous lead levels.
But what some are doing -- buying home lead-testing kits and wiping them across dolls and books, trains and trucks -- is wasting money on a false sense of security, doctors and other experts say. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in its own limited testing found that the kits can be unreliable.
'It always crosses my mind,' said Denice Giovan, who has a 3-year-old son, Nickolas. 'I always think, 'Is this toy going to be recalled in a couple months?' It's become a huge concern of ours.'
Tired of the uncertainty, Giovan got some home lead-testing kits and started swabbing all Nickolas' favorite toys. Dozens of them. From all the Thomas & Friends trains he plays with for hours at a time, to the GeoTrax and his John Deere tractors and farm set.
No sign of lead so far, she said.
Giovan used a test called LeadCheck, which sells for $5.97 at Home Depot. Distributors of the test say sales have 'skyrocketed' in recent months after the recalls, but would not provide specific numbers. Sales at Home Depot have been 'steady,' a company spokeswoman said.
Despite the recent rush to test toys at home, experts warn parents not to trust home lead kits for toys.
Most home lead tests also cannot detect lead beneath a surface, where many times the toxic metal is hidden and gradually becomes exposed as the toy ages.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel tested 25 toys -- also using LeadCheck -- and got two positive results. However, when taken to a lab for a more comprehensive analysis, both were found to have only trace levels, well under the 90 parts per million of leachable lead, the internationally accepted cutoff level for safety.
At the same time, a ball that had shown no signs of lead with the home test came back from the lab with a potentially dangerous level -- 108 parts per million.
Marcia Stone, president and chief executive of Hybrivet Systems, the Massachusetts-based company that manufactures the LeadCheck test, said the tests are suitable for use on toys but are reliable only when testers follow specific steps -- steps that are not included in the kit's instructions.
For example, Stone said testers must first scratch or rough up the surface of the toy to ensure an accurate reading. Nowhere in the directions does it tell testers to do that. Nor do the directions state that testing vinyl requires more time and more pressure.
'I know those directions are very, very brief and don't explain everything they should,' Stone said.
Stone said the company is working with the distributor to get the information out.
While the home test kits are relatively quick and inexpensive -- roughly $6 to $30 depending on the type and number of tests in a kit -- epidemiologists and pediatricians say a far better way to tell if your child is being poisoned by lead is to have a blood test.

Kermit's Birthplace Mississippi Town Is Home To Exhibit About Puppet's Creator
LELAND, Miss. -- Road signs of a flipper-waving Kermit the Frog attract thousands of visitors annually through the flatlands of the Mississippi Delta to the hometown of the famous amphibian and his equally renowned creator, Jim Henson.
The city of Leland (population 5,500) was where Henson lived from 1936-48. His childhood home was torn down years before he became famous. But a permanent exhibit about Kermit called 'Birthplace of the Frog: An Exhibit of Jim Henson's Delta Boyhood' was created here after Henson's death in 1990. The exhibit was a gift to Leland from the Jim Henson Co.
Kermit, the original Muppet, sprang from Henson's childhood and memories of playing along nearby Deer Creek with childhood friend Theodore Kermit Scott, who is believed to be the inspiration for the frog's name.
'My wife says my smile looks just like the frog,' said Scott, 70, a retired philosophy professor, who lives in Monroe, Va.
Scott said as children he and Henson used to play at Deer Creek and catch frogs.
The Kermit exhibit, in a three-room building along the banks of Deer Creek, features childhood photos of Henson and an actual Kermit puppet, with his banjo, sitting in a swamp-like setting.
'Everyone seems to know the work of Jim Henson and it just appeals to them,' said Ashley Zepponi, the exhibit's director. 'Most people are charmed by it.'
Visitors from Germany, France, Italy and other parts of the world are routinely among the 10,000 people who find their way here each year, Zepponi said.
Leland lies about eight miles east of the Mississippi River and Greenville, where Henson was born, and it's only a short mile and a half from U.S. 61, Mississippi's 'Blues Highway.'
Connor Ahearn, 26, and his brother Sean, 24, stopped over while on a cross-country road trip from Raymond, N.H. A book of roadside attractions tipped them off to the exhibit.
'We both liked the Muppets growing up,' Connor Ahearn said, while looking at a photo of the original Kermit puppet alongside his more recent counterpart.
Not many differences exist, except for original Kermit's more lizard-like appearance and paler skin tone.

July 2007 Action Figures And Comic Books Are Becoming Acceptable Accents In Home Decor

Once a source of nerdy shame, action figures and comic books are becoming acceptable accents in home decor
Mr. Cho, who has sprinkled his living space with action figures and anime creations, is one of a growing number of Canadians who view Spiderman and Transformer toys as acceptable accents to their home decor.
'We've always idolized art in some way: now it's just a Robocop instead of Rodin,' said the 30-year-old video game designer.
It used to be that grown men who collected action figures did so on the down low. If they had their Star Wars figurines on display they were relegated to a 'nerd room,' a private space generally in the basement and always out of sight to guests.
But with the mainstream success of superhero franchises in Hollywood and the nerdification of culture in general, action figures have come out of the closet and are increasingly finding a place of pride on walls and mantels.
'There's sort of a nerd chic thing now,' said Mr. Cho, who did his master's thesis on the action figure as artistic artifact. 'We're not necessarily less cultured, but our focus is different. Pop culture and cross-promotional products are huge.'
Bruno Bornsztein, a designer and founder of Curbly.com, an online community for DIY home decor, agrees that the celebration of all things geek has infiltrated people's homes.
'I have seen more people tricking out their house with comic book stuff,' he said. 'People feel more freedom showing off interests that would have embarrassed them before.'
Part of the reason, he said, is that both comics and action figures have become more visually appealing.
Ratty cartoons have been replaced by bound graphic novels and Star Trek figurines have been bumped off shelves by Japanese Munny dolls.
The line has been blurred, Mr. Bornsztein said, between 'people who are geeky and people who are arty.'
That said, not every action figure he has seen in someone's living room deserved to be there.
'Some of it is really cool aesthetically,' he said. 'But I'm not particularly into the hardcore stuff.'
Jason Beck, a 38-year-old stand-up comedian from Winnipeg who collects Yoda figures, falls into the more extreme category of collectors.

Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front

American Girl's third made-for-television movie.
MIDDLETON, Wis., Nov. 14 -- This fall, Molly McIntire(R), a lively, lovable, and patriotic heroine growing up on America's home front in 1944, takes center stage in American Girl's third made-for-television movie, Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front. The new film, based on the popular Molly book series, is set to air Sunday, November 26, at 8:00 p.m. EST/7:00 p.m. CST on Disney Channel. To further engage girls in Molly's world, American Girl(R) also introduced several new Molly movie-related items this September, including an 18-inch Emily doll, Molly's English friend and the newest doll to join its popular historical line of books, dolls, and accessories.

PHOTO: Maya Ritter and Molly Ringwald star in Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front airing Sunday, November 26 on Disney Channel.
American Girl, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mattel, Inc. (NYSE:MAT) ( http://www.mattel.com/ ), world's leading toy company.

One of American Girl's original historical characters introduced in 1986, Molly has engaged millions of girls over the past twenty years with her stories of hope, heart, and sacrifice amidst the hardships of World War Two. Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front brings Molly's touching stories to life -- providing girls with a whole new way to explore the world of this popular character. In the film, Molly struggles to come to terms with the changes the war has brought to her family. But with the help of her new friend, Emily, an English girl who has come to live with the McIntires to escape the bombings in London, Molly learns the importance of getting along and pulling together -- just as her country has to do to win the war.
Produced by American Girl, Revolution Studios, and Red Om Films in association with Warner Bros. Television Production Inc., Molly: An American Girl on the Home Front stars up-and-coming actress Maya Ritter as Molly McIntire; Tory Green as Emily Bennett; and Molly Ringwald (The Big Time, Pretty in Pink) and David Aaron Baker (The Hoax, Melinda and Melinda) as Molly's parents, Helen and Dr. James McIntire. The Molly movie was directed by filmmaker Joyce Chopra (The Last Cowboy), and award-winning screenwriter Anna Sandor (Felicity: An American Girl Adventure) wrote the teleplay.

Petite Home Center 1 Box
Price:2,500 yen
Series:Petite Sample
Release Date:Mar 2006
Type: Trading Figure
Description:Home Centers! Ah, what a pleasure: anything you can't get at a convenience store in Japan (besides the food, of course), you can get at a home center. For all that everything else is specialised in the country, home centers are extremely general. This great little set consists of 11 miniature sets of things you can get at home centers (10 plus a secret one). Please note that these are trading figures and are individually sealed and randomly packed in boxes of 10 before shipment to HobbyLink Japan. As a result we are unable to honour requests for individual or specific figures, nor can we promise you which one(s) you will receive in a box. Please order only if you are willing to accept any of the possible types.
