Star Wars: Power of the Force from March, 1997

Battlegrip.com - 21 March, 2015 - 08:36
The March, 1997 issue of Lee’s Action Figure News and Toy Review (Amazon.com search*) shows off the then-upcoming new Jabba and Dewback sets, shares some of the insanity of variant collecting during that time, and even shows the mail-away Spirit of Obi-Wan* action figure. Damn, old magazines are a blast! Related articles Nineties Star Wars Dewback and Jabba Commercial (battlegrip.com)... Read more →

Star Wars Unleashed Battle Packs in 2006

Battlegrip.com - 21 March, 2015 - 06:14
Hasbro’s Star Wars Unleashed series (Amazon.com search*) was primarily larger toys, but for a while the company also made the smaller Battle Packs — sets of toys in a smaller size — as shown in this ad from the April, 2006 issue of ToyFare magazine. These don’t strike me as quite as cool as the bigger toys. Related articles “Some... Read more →

Review – G.I. Joe (2013) Basic Assortment Snake Eyes

Battlegrip.com - 20 March, 2015 - 12:45
Last year I reviewed the Cobra Commander (review here) from the dollar chains’ Basic Assortment series (Amazon.com search*). That entire concept of G.I. Joe action figures in basic packaging with fewer accessories was a great idea on Hasbro’s part, and this Basic Assortment Snake Eyes* holds up quite well and is a strong addition to any G.I.

Glitter Red Gigantor WACKO / SOAP PLANT Fred Ladd signing!

Funko - 20 March, 2015 - 10:54

We are very excited to reveal the Wacko / Soap Plant Exclusive Glitter Red Gigantor! Read below for details on a very special signing with Fred Ladd, creator of Gigantor, at Wacko Soap Plant!

 

Glitter Red Gigantor will be available exclusively at WACKO / SOAP PLANT in Los Angeles, CA. Pre-Order Glitter Red Gigantor here!

Fred Ladd in-store appearance at WACKO / SOAP PLANT will take place on Sunday, April 19th, between 3:00 pm ~ 6:00 pm. WACKO / SOAP PLANT is located at 4633 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, 90027. Phone 323-663-0122.  

Fred Ladd is the "Father of English Anime" in America.  In 1963 he wrote, produced and directed the American English version of Osamu Tezuka's  MIGHTY ATOM series (Japan's very first major anime TV series) as ASTRO-BOY and it aired all across America on major network television on NBC-TV.  ASTRO-BOY was the first successful anime series ever dubbed in English for American TV audiences and it was a hit.  Following ASTRO-BOY'S success, in 1965 Ladd wrote, produced and directed the American English version of TETSUJIN 28-GO, known in the U.S. as GIGANTOR.  GIGANTOR ran 52 half-hour episodes and became a huge hit in syndicated television throughout the 1960's and 1970's.  Mr. Ladd actually purchased all rights to the original GIGANTOR series for all English speaking territories of the world, and has owned the show and its merchandising rights ever since.  The late Peter Fernandez (original voice of SPEED RACER) was one of the talented voice actors on GIGANTOR, and the series became the most popular show Ladd ever wrote, produced and directed.  In GIGANTOR, a little boy named Jimmy Sparks uses a remote control device to control a powerful giant robot, GIGANTOR, in order to stop diabolical villains (who often have their own evil giant robots), and to help people whenever they are in danger. 

Ladd had yet another English language anime hit in 1966 with KIMBA THE WHITE LION, another syndicated television success based on Osamu Tezuka's anime series JUNGLE EMPEROR. It has been widely stated that Disney's THE LION KING was a blatant copy of KIMBA THE WHITE LION. 

Ladd went on to writing and producing the animated feature films PINOCCHIO IN OUTER SPACE and JOURNEY BACK TO OZ, the animated series THE BIG WORLD OF LITTLE ADAM, G-FORCE GUARDIANS OF SPACE (aka BATTLE OF THE PLANETS), and even a new updated color series of GIGANTOR in 1980.  Other animated series writing work included shows at Filmation studios - GHOSTBUSTERS, MASK, THE INCREDIBLE HULK, SHAZAM!, and TARZAN. 

Ladd also wrote, produced and directed the English language dubbed versions of the famous live-action children's movies based on PIPPI LONGSTOCKING starring Swedish child actress Inger Nilsson - PIPPI IN THE SOUTH SEAS and PIPPI ON THE RUN (co-produced by Swedish & German production companies).  PIPPI IN THE SOUTH SEAS was theatrically distributed all over America, and the rest of the English speaking world, to great success.  In the film, Pippi Longstocking must rescue her father who was kidnapped by pirates. 

Ladd served as creative consultant on the hit 1992 anime series SAILOR MOON, and he was also a pioneer in the colorization of black and white cartoons to color, for classics such as Looney Tunes, Betty Boop, Popeye and Merry Melodies.  Today he is working with William Winckler Productions, Inc. on licensing his classic GIGANTOR series and related merchandise, as well as his BIG WORLD OF LITTLE ADAM series.  FUNKO is currently releasing Hikari vinyl and Pop! Style vinyl figures of the classic GIGANTOR robot, and MEZCO TOYZ will soon be releasing a very large GIGANTOR figure of their own.

Mr. Ladd recently celebrated his 88th birthday, and is one of the true pioneers from the Golden Age of Television.

#MarchOfRobots: #BoredBot

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 20 March, 2015 - 05:30
The concept of #BoredBot came about as I was looking for a less cluttered and cleaner way to doodle robots for March Of Robots, and perhaps this was also influenced somewhat by my viewing of CHAPPiE (which perhaps impacted as much as inspiring a character of a simpleton-robot LOL). I had wanted to portray an innocuous robot-entity who does things which does not turn out the way they should, and
