Michael Chabon, Brian K. Vaughan Join Hasbro Cinematic Universe Writer’s Room
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Hasbro Cinematic Universe

Last December, Paramount Pictures announced the development of a shared cinematic universe based on their Hasbro properties – including G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand), Micronauts, Visionairies, and ROM – similar to the one they are currently working on for their extremely lucrative Transformers franchise. The next logical step was to assemble a team of creative samurai to help them foster Hollywood’s latest attempt to one-up Marvel to the silver screen.

The studio just announced that they have put together a jaw-dropping writers’ room that includes Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon (The Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Wonder Boys) and Eisner Award-winning comic book writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Saga).

NYCC 2015: Cosplay and Convention Floor Photos

NYCC 2015 Cosplay

“You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy…”

This weekend the most diverse collection of individuals on our planet have gathered together in New York City at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center for this year’s New York Comic-Con. And a group of our contributing GoDs — (Athena, Danny, Sarah, Max, Eve, and me, Dave3, to be exact) — are here to provide coverage of all the goings-on of NYCC 2015.

Among my favorite things to do is walk the convention floor, checking out all the goodies, meeting artists, creators, exhibitors, fans, and cosplayers. And of course, taking pictures along the way. And I spent the majority of today doing exactly that: perusing the aisles of the convention floor, taking in the sites, the sounds, and the smells of the ever-growing yearly Geekdom collective.

Today’s highlights include a run-in with the Baseball Furies from The Warriors, Princess Sparklefist herself Captain Marvel, and the amazingly amusing webslinger amalgam, Spider-Met!

Anyhoo, hit the jump and check out my photo galleries from today.

Star Wars BB-8 droid toy by Sphero

Midnight tonight, Friday, September 4, 2015, begins Force Friday, the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys, collectibles, and more. Ahead of this major sales event, an unboxing of the items was streamed live online today.

One of the items revealed today BB-8 by Sphero, a baseball-sized remote-control version of the rolling ball droid from the upcoming sequel. This “app-enabled Droid” is controlled by the user via an app for iOS or Android devices and has three modes: Driving, Holographic Messaging, and Patrol.

Watch the video here below of the BB-8 toy in action. Also check out the very lengthy (4 hours!) unboxing video that shows off all the items coming up for sale tonight, including BB-8 (which will run about $150), the obligatory (yet awesome) LEGO variations, HASBRO action figures, and much more.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Kylo Ren

Toy conventions and Comic-Cons are the places to be at for the exclusive limited-edition high-end toys that every collector wants to have. Some people even camp out to see a live unboxing of these highly-detailed toys. Some don’t get the chance to see the event for themselves, and instead rely on videos posting of these unveilings hours after they occur. But in the age of Periscope, and more live-streaming content, fans around the world are given the opportunity to be right there to see it for themselves.

And now Disney Consumer Products has announced that ahead of Force Friday, they will be holding a Star Wars: The Force Awakens toy unboxing phenomenon event this September that will go live globally. More on this here below.
