Pop Culture Roundup June 21, 2007

The Onion A.V. Club presents 10 Wonderfully Weird Moments From Fantastic Four Comics.

-------------------

Toonzone has the first image from the WB's upcoming "Spectacular Spider-Man" 'toon series.

--------------------

Able to alliterate an array of hyperbolic prose at the drop of a hat: It's the Stan Lee action figure.

"We feel it's long overdue that Stan Lee be immortalized as an action figure, much like the dozens of marvelous characters that he has created for years and years," said Eric Nyman, Hasbro's vice president of marketing. "And it couldn't be more fitting than to create him as a `Marvel Legends' figure."

The limited-edition, $14.99 toy will be introduced next month in San Diego at Comic-Con International, the annual comic-book convention.




--------------------

Meanwhile, don't forget to eat your Kirby Krackle.

---------------------

Lego is unleashing a line of Indiana Jones-themed building sets next May.



---------------------

The original title logo from the Beatles' Rubber Soul album is up for auction.

The trademark stretchy font, which has been credited with launching a swarm of imitations, was created in 1965 by Charles Front, a young advertising executive who accepted the job on the side from his friend, the photographer Bob Freeman.

Corgi and Apple Corps. have signed a multi-year deal to allow Corgi to market a range toy vehicles inspired by the Beatles and their "Yellow Submarine" film. From the press release:

Corgi International CEO Michael Cookson commented, "Corgi as a company has had a long association with the Beatles having produced the original Yellow Submarine die cast in the 1960’s and it was a priority for the company to re-initiate a program with Apple Corps/Suba Films for an innovative range of product, that people will once again enjoy purchasing. With the 40th Anniversary of Sgt Peppers, it was a perfect time for the deal to have been agreed, and we are truly excited to be partners again.’’

Moonstone Comics is seeking an artist to draw an upcoming Captain Action series. From the press release:

Moonstone Books recently announced the upcoming Captain Action comic book
series with famed writer Fabian Nicieza at the helm. The series will begin
with two six-page teaser tales run in the back of existing Moonstone titles
such as *The Phantom* and *Kolchak, The Night Stalker*. However, before that
can happen, the publisher needs to plug the right artist into the project.

"We're looking for the perfect artist to team with Fabian," states Editor in
Chief Joe Gentile. "We're not interested in seeing superheroes, but we are
looking for a professional artist who can handle the slick James Bond type
stuff as well as the old school stuff."

If art is your thing and working with Fabian Nicieza on Captain Action is
your dream gig, then please submit two consecutive pages of non-colored
sequential art. Please no pin ups or sketches. In addition, please do not
email links to artwork or website/portfolios. Please email the page files
directly to us at contact_us@moonstonebooks.com. If penciling is your thing,
please only send pencilled pages. If you ink as well as pencil, please email
us two completed pages of pencils and two completed pages of inks, please
make sure they are the same two pages. The files need to be in jpeg format,
no larger than comic size, and no more than 300DPI.

Mattel plans toys based on both the upcoming "Speed Racer" and Batman films. Details:

SPEED RACER: With Speed's Mach 5 leading the way, the leading die-cast vehicle brand, Hot Wheels, will feature a wide assortment of die-cast vehicles, race sets and track sets based on the film. Tyco, the leading remote control vehicle brand, will put kids behind the wheel of the Mach 5 with R/C vehicles and racing sets. Radica, Mattel's newly acquired games and electronics division, will put the action in the hands of kids through products that let them take the wheel, literally. Additionally, a line of Mattel games and puzzles will capture the film's action through board games, puzzles and a special-edition UNO card game.

BATMAN: For their film-inspired product lines, Mattel will utilize the multiple elements introduced in The Dark Knight. A new Batsuit, a new vehicle in the form of the Batpod and multiple key action scenes that set the stage for inspired play. Mattel's action figure line will feature Batman and the new Batsuit. Tyco R/C vehicles bring to life the speed and action of the Batmobile and the new Batpod. An entire line of action play items will allow boys to role-play being The Dark Knight. Additionally, Mattel will release a line of games and puzzles that will capture the film action through board games, puzzles and a special-edition UNO card game.

The Punisher’s wildest foe is back ― give or take a few boy parts ― this time he’s embarking on a solo mission: playing bodyguard to the son of a dangerous mob boss. Should be a breeze for a guy who went toe-to-toe with Frank Castle and lived to tell about it, right? Guess again. Junior is a hemophiliac ― and every crime syndicate in the country can’t wait to take a shot at him as payback to his dad. To survive, Barracuda will have to navigate hitmen, corrupt cops, black ops, a Central American strongman and rescue a damsel in distress. No kidding. Collecting PUNISHER PRESENTS: BARRACUDA MAX #1-5.
