Chuckie Cheese Pez!

Normally I could careless about Chuckie Cheese premuims, but this definately is something worth getting your hands on. It's a bit expensive for a Pez though as it will set you back $3.99.

AMT BIGFOOT model reissiued as a glow kit!!!!!!!!!

I had a total geekgasim over the sight of this! I loved the original kit and always loved the Aurora Glow kits. So this is the definition of "crazygroovycool!" I wonder if Loren Colemen will stock these in the International Cryptozoology Museum?

Peter Venkman on the Spike Scream Awards!

For years now we have been teased and waited for Ghostbusters 3. For years the biggest road block was Bill "freaking" Murray. Recently serious talk of Ghostbusters 3 was flying around, a new script, Ackroid saying it's a go, Ramis saying it was a go, Weaver saying it was a go, and Murray being a dick about the whole thing. Was any of it for real?

Fast forward to Zombieland and Bill Murray plays himself and shows his house guest Ghostbusters in his home theater, his character is the SDCC exclusive for the retro Ghostbusters figures, He then says he would work with everybody on a new flick! hearts skip a beat! The Bill goes back to dick head mode talking shit about the project, then the Scream awards and well see for yourself....

Are we or are we not going to get Ghostbusters "freaking" 3?

Hell yeah! Been way to long since the King of the Monsters has been on the racks. IDW negotiated not only Godzilla but several other Toho characters/monsters aswell. This should be a bit more exciting than the ape people from Godzilla vs.MechaGodzilla DarkHorse shilled it out for back in the 90's. Heres a cover by Eric (The Goon)Powell.

Toys "R" us "R" Mart????????

Mattel Disney Pixar Diecast CARS: TRU CARS Budget? How’s About Some Cereal & Beef Jerky?

Apparently TRU is going to be the world’s largest 7-11.*
“On Wednesday, Toys “R” Us will announce the opening in 260 of its 585 stores a new convenience section called the “R” Market, which will offer an assortment of consumables and household items such as cereal, macaroni and cheese, canned food, granola bars, cleaning supplies, paper goods, hand soap, juice boxes and nonperishable milk. The “R” Markets will also offer a wider variety of diapers, baby food and other infant supplies for Toys “R” Us consumers. The company will open “R” Markets in additional stores by the end of the year.”
So in case you’re wondering what exactly TRU is budgeting for purchasing, it ain’t toys or CARS but hand soap and mac & cheese? … gee, where else would we find such staples of life?
Via Time magazine which actually also points out …
“For example, a collectible Lighting McQueen, the main character in the hit Pixar movie Cars, costs $2.97 at Wal-Mart. At Toys “R” Us, he and other key characters go for $3.59. Monopoly is $10.44 at Wal-Mart and $12.99 at Toys “R” Us. Here’s a real shocker: at Wal-Mart, a “Surf’s Up” Barbie doll — basically, Barbie in a bathing suit — costs just $5.44. The retail price at the Phillipsburg Toys “R” Us: $19.99.”
It’s a nice feature that also raises the other issue that kids might not really appreciate being in the Clorox aisle :-/
Though TRU is claiming the only space being given over to this is for 4+ clothes which they will stop selling … and they are going to reconfigure for more toys … okay, we’ll believe that when we see it …
*At least 7-11 has slurpees!
