eFX Continues with Disney and Muppets

BURBANK, Calif. (June 9, 2009) – Bringing together the masterful storytelling of Disney with the renowned artistry of eFX Inc., an all-new line of limited-edition collectibles will be unveiled this September, inspired by some of Disney’s classic films and the comic antics of the Muppets.

These new collectibles extend the magic of Disney into pieces that recall the beauty and spectacle that is unique to Disney, beginning with a tribute to the “fairest of them all,u201D Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

eFX plans to preview several pieces from its new Disney collection during San Diego Comic-Con in July, and at Disney’s first-ever D23 Expo, Sept. 10 to Sept. 13 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

The premiere release in eFX’s new Disney line is the exquisitely designed “Heart Box,u201D inspired by the designs of the wicked Queen in Disney’s first full-length animated feature. Presented to the Huntsman, the Heart Box was intended to be used as proof of Snow White’s demise. As befits the coolly glamorous wicked Queen, eFX’s Heart Box is intricately constructed from solid hardwood and its opening features an imaginative 24-karat gold-plated heart that locks with a dagger.

The Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Heart Box meticulously recreates the design of the film’s original animation, with rich, vivid colors and the attention to detail and craftsmanship that is the hallmark of eFX.

The Heart Box sits on an ornate, museum-quality display base that features a sculpture of the wicked Queen by renowned artist David Kracov, with whom eFX has developed a successful, ongoing collaborative relationship. Pre-orders for the Heart Box will begin shortly after Comic-Con, at http://www.efxcollectibles.com. Each “Heart Box” will include an individually numbered plaque and will not exceed 500 pieces worldwide.

“We have long been Disney fans ourselves, so developing authentic, detailed collectibles is tremendously exciting for us,u201D said Bryan Ono, president of eFX Inc. “With inspiration from Disney films and characters, we look forward to extending the magic of Disney even further into the lives of collectors.”

Upcoming pieces in development by eFX include:

• Full-size, highly detailed “Photo Puppets” of favorite Muppet characters, including Rizzo the Rat, Miss Piggy, and P├ępe the King Prawn;

• An incredibly accurate, four-foot replica of Capt. Nemo’s Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, which will offer features not incorporated in any previous model of this iconic submarine;

• Replicas and collectibles based on such classic Disney entertainment as Mary Poppins, Peter Pan and Pinocchio.

QMX gets license for new Star Trek movie!

Quantum Mechanix will soon be releasing item from the new Star Trek movie. Here is the official press release.

LOS ANGELES, CA - May 8, 2009-Quantum Mechanix Inc. (QMx)is pleased to announce that it has secured the rights from CBS Consumer Products to produce collectibles for the new Star Trek movie directed by J.J. Abrams.

http://www.quantummechanix.com/Star_Trek.html

Among the QMx collectible items will be studio-scale and mid-scale limited-edition replicas of ships that appear in Star Trek.

Already in the works is the Artisan Edition Studio-Scale U.S.S. Enterprise, a 34-inch-long film-quality replica with working lights and a screen-accurate paint job. Like all QMx Artisan replicas, the Enterprise will be 100% made-to-order in the U.S.A. with the finest detailing and greatest precision.

QMx has pioneered the U.S.-based development and manufacture of licensed, made-to-order ship replicas. Each Artisan ship is assembled, wired and painted by hand in a working model effects shop. This process, while more resource intensive and more time-consuming than overseas manufacture, ensures discerning collectors get a replica of unsurpassed quality.

QMx also plans to produce mid-scale replicas (~10 inches) of ships seen in the movie. These mid-scale replicas combine the best qualities of mass-produced studio-scale models - accurate design and hand-painted detailing - for a fraction of the price, offering the demanding collector a terrific value.

"J.J. Abrams' vision for Star Trek-sci-fi's most-venerated franchise-is nothing short of transcendent," said Andy Gore, QMx's president. "We're deeply honored by this opportunity to develop collectibles that we hope will surprise and delight Star Trek fans."

Star Trek collectibles will be available in comic, collector and specialty stores around the country, and are also available directly at www.qmxonline.com.

New Harry Potter Trailer

There is a new Harry Potter trailer available for Half Blood Prince. Looks to be the best HP movie yet.

"Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn’t counted on Romilda Vane’s chocolates! And then there’s Hermione, simmering with jealously but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again."

Custom Action Figure Heads

Something I always thought would be cool is to have my own action figure. After talking with several toy companies it was obvious that they didn't feel that my likeness would sell very well. Now comes ThatsMyFace.com. After uploading only two photos you can have your very own 1/6 scale action figure head. In the photo below you can see a comparison of original heads versus the heads made by ThastMyFace.
