As another reason to say “fuck you” to Chris Cornell (and please do!), the remaining members of Soundgarden reformed last night minus Cornell for the first time since 1997. The show which was a stop of Tom Morello’s Justice Tour which was at the newly reopened Crocodile Cafe. The former Soundgarden had Tad Doyle of the underated early 90s Sub Pop band TAD on vocals. Also at the same show had Mudhoney’s Mark Arm singing “Kick Out the Jams” with Morello and MC5’s Wayne Kramer, and Morello singing “The Ghost of Tom Joad” with Steve Earle.

Eat a dick, Hasbro.

Hasbro has officially said “Fuck You” to the collector community. After taking the Marvel license from Toy Biz several years ago and releasing lackluster product after product we were unhappy but making excuses and still glad we had product being released.

Fast forward to the last few months and little to no word out of Hasbro on the future to Marvel Legends. All we have received it more and more information about the 4 inch line that has been universally disliked by the collector community.

Then a ray of light last week, Jesse Falcon the head honcho for Marvel Toys at Toy Biz and now consultant for Hasbro posts this on the Fwoosh:

Hey Guys it’s Jesse

Long time no chat right! I’ve been reading a lot of gloom and doom about the 6″ Legends line. Well, I wanted to come on the Fwoosh and let you guys know that next weekend your going to see something I think is amazingly cool that will be happening with the 6″ Marvel Legends line. And I really wanted to come here and let you know that the 6″ line is alive and Hasbro has a very dedicated team that plans on making some very cool 6″ product over the next couple of years.

I also wanted to let you know that the 3.75″ line look’s amazing! If when you get them in hand you agree an I think you will you should thank the entire Hasbro crew because they all worked very hard on this line to make it what it is.

So when you get a second if you come to NYCC swing by the Marvel booth, and say hi!

I think your really going to like what you see!

Best,

Jesse

Everyone was excited, hope was given. Of course that had to change later in the week.

Hey Guys!

So I just found out that the 6″ news that I mentioned earlier will
actually be on display at SDCC, and Not NYCC!!!! (I got the SD and the
NY confused whoops!)

But please swing by the Marvel Booth this weekend at the NYCC and check
out
the new Marvel Universe 3.75″ figures Hasbro will have at the booth.
There’s going to be a lot of stuff there you are going to love!

Best!

Jesse

Not only did the guy lie, but also threw a plug for the stupid 4 inch line on top of it.

Then Straight from the NYCC this morning.

* Walmart exclusive 3 3/4″ Marvel Universe 2-packs called Gigantic Battles. This 2-pack will consist of a figure will be around 12-13″ and another regular 3 3/4″ in size and estimate cost of $25.00. These 2-packs will be hitting Walmart in Fall of 2009.

* Exclusively to Toys R’ Us will be 3-packs. One set will be Spider-Man and his amazing friends with Spider-Man, Firestar and Iceman.

* The Marvel Legends 2-packs with Iron Man that was shown at SDCC originaly are now Toys R’ Us and Diamond Previews exclusives.

* Hasbro is going to be running a poll on their website starting very soon where people vote for their top 5 characters they want made.

* Nick Fury is a mail-away exclusive figure.

* Marvel Legends Skrull/Kree 2-pack is a Diamond Previews exclusive.

* Marvel Legends is not dead.  There will still be new product coming for that line, but nothing new for 2009.  What we know about already is what is coming.  There will be more stuff next year but….

* Their focus is on the 3.75″ line.  Hasbro feels like their strenght is in 3.75″ and they want to play to their strengths.

* There are no vehicles or play sets planned for the first year but it’s till on the table as they also feel like that is one of their strengths. But the focus of the line at first is increasing the depth of character in the line as soon as possible.  Jason asked how difficult is would be to reuse/retool some GI JOE vehicles for the Marvel Line.  They said it would be difficult, because of the different teams and tooling in different places, but potentially not impossible.

* The entire Marvel Universe is open to them.

* There will be singles, 2-packs, 3-packs and boxed sets.  There will also be exclusives in the line.  Wal-Mart will have some exclusives.

* Movie lines will be in the 3.75″ scale.  For most movies there will be both a movie and a comic version line running side by side.

I really can’t wait until all of these lines fail for Hasbro in a most specatular way. At least I don’t have to worry about spending any money on Marvel toys this year.

But I just found what I am going to

Ghostbusters

Check them out here.

The first look at the live action G.I. Joe movie is now online at Coming Soon. I don’t know what to think of it yet. Doesn’t feel very “G.I. Joe-y” to me.  What you guys think?

Shamwow guyVince, the dude from the Shamwow and Slapchop commercials didn’t start off trying to pawn off worthless kitchen gadgets, he started his “career” as a writer/director/producer/star of the Underground Comedy Movie. At the start of this remarkable project he was a fairly new convert to the Church of Scientology. He used his connections within the “Celebrity Center International” which I guess is like some kind of cool kid club of B-movie stars who do cameos for other Scientologists. Vince was able to secure grade-A talent like Joey Buttafucco, Slash from Guns n Roses, Ant, and last but certainly not least, Michael Clarke Duncan- most famously known for his role as “big black guy with a heart of gold” in nearly a dozen movies.

Vince made his movie, and the Church of Scientology was so embarrassed by how terrible it was that they pretty much railroaded Vince out of the church with their standard fair game threats, coercion, and turning all of his former Scientologist friends against him. Vince claims the church stole the raw footage, clipped something together that somehow managed to be even worse then the original, added some sassy narration, and passed it around the Scientology community as an elaborate smear campaign against him. Vince eventually was found guilty on 23 various charges in Scientology court (not joking) which put his movie in jeopardy because it was created entirely using Scientologist connections from casting, to financing, and everything in between.

Somewhere in between the Underground Comedy Movie, getting kicked out of the Church of Scientology, and being completely ruined Vince discovered he’s really good at hocking bullshit at flea markets. He eventually became successful enough to form a sales team for his flea market gimmicks, and make enough money to finish his movie, then release it on cable and DVD. But now that Vince is a successful TV “star” (if you’d even call him that) his new mission in life is fighting the Church of Scientology. He originally filed suit against the church in 2004, and has been spending most of his fortune made with the Shamwow and Slapchop suing them ever since.

This is Vince’s magnum opus in comedy. The Underground Comedy Movie. It’s a series of skits which range from mildly amusing to remarkably fucking terrible. There’s even a musical number. Oh, also somewhere along the way with making this movie Vince also sued the creators of There’s Something About Mary claiming they ripped off his movie to make theirs. This absolutely horrible movie has so much fucking drama attached to it that it’s worth watching just to see what all the fuss was about.

Check out the trailer here.

Fuck You Konami!

Castlevania Fighter

The Castlevania Wii game EVERYONE has been wanting is of course Castlevania Judgement, a 3D fighting game.  You know Konami looked into it and found out no one wanted a first person 3D game with Wii Whip controls. Nope, as it is reported in the new issue of Nintendo Power, everyone REALLY wants a 3D fighter where Dracula, Simon, Alucard, Shanoa, and Maria Renard are locked in mortal combat.
