In toy news, I helped set up the announcement of the Walking Dead MiniMate line from Diamond Select Toys at CBR and then covered Toy Fair! Here’s my reports on Mattel, Diamond Select Toys, DC Direct, NECA and Hasbro’s Marvel and G.I. Joe lines.
I also did a pair of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance posts for Marvel.com, the first was the coolest moments from Jason Aaron’s run on the comic and the second was the coolest moments from the trailers. Stoked for that flick even if it didn’t do very well last weekend. My pal Rickey Purdin joined the Sketch Attack sketch blog. Check it out!
Another friend, Matt Powell, posted a new bit of art on his Saturday Morning Is…Awesome blog. This one’s about a Khary Randolph Usagi sketch he scored.
I love buying digital records, but I don’t like that you can’t try to sell off the files if you’re not into them anymore. I know it’s complicated and people would abuse such a thing, but I want it. I dug this piece THR did on it.
I haven’t read this CBR piece on the Simpsons Arcade Game finally make its way to home systems just yet, but I’m excited to. That game was always a favorite. I really dug Phil Noto‘s rendition of Lady Mary from Downton Abbey. I also dug Chris Bishop‘s Downton Abbey infographic for PBS.

I would be very happy if John Goodman joined Roseanne’s new sitcom Downwardly Mobile. (via Deadline)Star Trek and Doctor Who seem like the perfect things to cross over. I think I’ll give this trade a look when it comes out. (via CBR)
