- 08/04/13--08:17: Poe’s Point > Thoughts on Mattel’s reveals from SDCC 2013
Matty Collector's Scott Neitlich has released a video that shows a foam mock-up of the Movie Masters Ecto-1 to demonstrate its size in comparison to the Ghostbusters Movie Masters figures and a previously released Hot Wheels Elite Ecto-1.
The Movie Masters Ecto-1 was first announced at SDCC and pre-orders for it, along with two new Ghostbusters Movie Masters figures, went live almost immediately after. As of the last meter update, the Movie Masters Eco-1 is nowhere near close to meeting its goal.
The pre-order's order target cut-off is August 19th. Should the goal be met, pre-orders will remain open through November 5th. If you want to the Movie Masters Ecto-1 become a reality be sure to pre-order before August 19th, if you haven't done so already. Otherwise be sure to check out the video.
Somehow, in the midst of so many dollies, I missed the introduction of Sad Sally. She is a new resin doll introduced at the Tonner Convention last May. Here is a snippet from the Tonner blog:
...the absolute highlight of this brunch event was the introduction to a BRAND NEW DOLL COLLECTION for Wilde Imagination. Prepare to fall in love: Meet Sad Sally! She’s a 7″ Resin Darling with changable eyes and hair. Sad Sally is… well,… sad. Her parents are two famous actors (who shall not be named), and whenever they host their infamous soirees, Sally sneaks into the coat room and snips the buttons off of the guest’s jackets. Ha ha! Sad Sally is rather sentimental, so she collects those buttons, and hides them away in a sad little shoe box underneath her bed. OK now you’ve heard the cute quirky story, now behold the darling little Sad Sally, creation of the doll mastermind, Joe Petrollese:

Cute, right?! Keep your eyes peeled for her later this year. She’ll be available as an adorably melancholy dressed doll, with outfits available too!
I'm wondering if she will be the doll we will get at the luncheon in Kingston in 2 weeks. Or perhaps we will see her on Friday night at the store. Hmmm.
She is adorable.
“A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you, when you have forgotten the lyrics.”
As Friendship’s day is around the corner, I would share an old incident with you. I still remember my neighbor yelling at his son- “Don’t waste your time on your friends, they will anyways leave you one day.” He kept saying all the anti-friendship words one can imagine. Well, he might be right somewhere for his son (who was of my age), but that statement left me in a state of dilemma. I kept on wondering what would happen if my friends ever leave me?
As the years passed by, things changed completely. I got busy with my life and the old man‘s words went buried deep inside. I came across something, which made me ponder over the same thought. Few days back, I was searching some documents in my room. Though I didn't find them, yet something else caught my attention.
There were my childhood pictures with one of my first friend ever. I was down the memory lane, remembering everything: playing with our Lego sets, waiting for each other every day at the bus stop, eating each others tiffin and so much more. Later on, she shifted to some other city and we lost touch.
Thanks to Mr. Zuckerberg for creating a platform like Facebook that connected us again. Things had changed a lot. There were likes, shares, pokes happening between us but no real conversations. Both were hesitant enough to start things that ended 15 years back. Somehow a status update made us communicate, and then rest was history. It never felt that more than a decade had passed. All the memories were fresh again. Last thing she said before signing off was,” Some of the fondest memories of that city are only with you.”
My 17 yrs old curiosity came to an end. I realized “There may be times, when you and your friends don’t talk or meet, but when you do, it feels as if it was yesterday.” They are the most valuable people in your life. They are the ones with whom you fight, argue and also take them for granted at times. But, then they are also the ones who can make you feel the way no one else could.
I saw the same scene when yesterday; Siya my 6 yr old niece gave a small handmade envelope and asked me to open it. On opening, I realized it was a piece of paper folded into a shape of a card. It had a note saying” Thank You Siya for sharing your things with me, you are my best friend and I really like you very much, from your best friend Vani.” This sweet gesture from a 6 yr old touched my heart and I could see a new beginning of a great friendship.
So, on this Friendship’s Day, make an effort and be with your friends. Cherish all the old memories; make some new ones to treasure for the coming years. Tell them how much you value them. After all-
“It takes a lot time to grow an old friend.”
Happy Friendship’s Day!

The Race Off Ridge Track Set has returned (sort of) … (technically, it’s not out yet but it’s coming). It’s a hodge-podge Frankenstein track set. Yep, 2 years ago, it was called Cliffside Challenge … and apparently, if the construction of it is weak – you call it a feature – ‘breakaway cliff?’ It looks [...]

This looks pretty cool if it works … Basically, you can fling the Micro Drifter PLANE (or CAR) up the ramp so it hits the clear loop and send it across to the track …It seems you might be sending a lot of PLANES into the air and miss the ramp entirely – or maybe [...]
OK, I know the title to this post is pretty weak and I should have been more creative, but man, I am totally super-exhausted! I have not got more than 3 hours of sleep a night for weeks (I'm worried I might be going insane!). Anyways, here's a post that's thrown together just to share some fun Batman-related photos.
The first photo shows a wonderful "Carrie Kelley Robin" Coslayer from a recent Comic Con. Her costume is AWESOME! This is one of my favorite Batman characters & she did a great job, very cool!
Next up are 2 humor pics that are really funny. Well, I think they are. First up is a super-cheesy bootleg BATMAN AND ROBIN Zippo Lighter. The graphics are actually really good, but some moron put Superman's name on there, ha!
Then, we can see how Batman's new Earth-Friendly Batmobile shows his commitment to the planet. Yes, we should all do what we can... I recycle.

I'm sorry I have some bad news to share but I think it's important to mention that the Actor, Michael Ansara, passed away a few days ago. He was 91 years old. He was best known for playing the Klingon leader Kang,on the original 1960's Star Trek TV Series. But, he has done countless movies and other TV appearances as well. I didn't know this, but for a short time, he was married to Barbara Eden (of "I Dream of Jeanie" fame).
Michael Ansara died last Wednesday at his home in Calabasas, California. He was born in a small village in Syria, arriving in the United States with his American parents at the age of two. He caught the "acting bug" early in life and went on to appear on "The Untouchables," "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," "Perry Mason, "Lost in Space," "Hawaii 5-0," "Murder She Wrote," "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century" and his ex-wife's show, "I Dream of Jeannie."
But, Michael Ansara will always be remembered by Batman Fans as the voice of Mr. Freeze on the classic TV cartoon, Batman: The Animated Series.I always loved that character, and besides having a really great graphic design "look", the voice was really the best thing about him, total perfection. if you would like to remember this please just check out the Tribute Music Video down below. He was GREAT!

Mr. Michael Ansara, you will be missed.
And now we come to the end of our SDCC coverage. I’ve had to hold off on this one because I was really busy last week, but now I can finally take the time to discuss all the reveals. Ghostbusters Really? Mattel showed a mock-up of a 1/12th-scale Ecto-1, which is currently available for pre-order […]
