ArcGunner interviews Wowee Toys to learn about their new “mip” line!
I was able to get a surprise interview with Nintendo of America at New York Toy Fair 2014!
This year I attended New York Toy Fair, and spoke with industry professionals about their newest upcoming products and merchandise. Presenters ranged from large companies such as Lego, Hasbro, and Bandai, to smaller independent toy companies.
Of all the interviews I conducted throughout the week, by far the most surprising one I managed to procure was with comic book legend Todd McFarlane. The creator of legendary 90′s character, Spawn, and founder of McFarlane Toys was present at the McFarlane booth and was kind enough to share some of his time with me. Take a peek and see whats been going on in the world of McFarlane Toys!
Needless to say…I was a little nervous.
Carol Danvers has recently become one of the most recognizable superheroes in the Marvel Universe, alongside one of the most recognizable cosplay costumes at comic cons. Second only to the Deadpool Corps that flood convention halls, the Carol Corps is quickly growing. This may have had something to do with Ms. Marvel’s recent re-invention as the spectacular CAPTAIN MARVEL back in 2012.
I myself was one of the many readers who became enthralled in the Carol craze. Her book’s artwork was stylistic and her stories were touching. It was an amazing book…until they changed the artist. With the art switch from artist Dexter Soy to Filipe Andrade, the book suffered heavy losses in sales. I was one of the many people who dropped this book with the artist change, and while I have heard GREAT things about the book after that point, I could never get past the honestly atrocious artwork. Will Marvel repeat their mistake and allow a good book to die? Or is the ALL NEW Marvel NOW relaunch a chance for them to get a fresh start with everyone’s favorite superheroine? THIS is Captain Marvel #1!
It is the end of an era…or at least a comic run. Wolverine and the X-Men has been a fun and interesting book from beginning to end. From the Hellfire Club, to AVX, to the Battle of the Atom, through its ups and downs, this title has stood tall as one of the best X-Men books published by Marvel.
And so at the end of its 42 issue run, the Jean Grey School caps off the end of its school year. Students are graduating, new X-Men are joining the ranks, and we are given a glimpse into one of the many futures of this mutant school and our favorite Headmaster. This is Wolverine and the X-men #42!
