Star Wars Day May the 4th package

Greetings, and Happy Star Wars Day to you all.

Over the years, “May the 4th” has taken on a life of its own. What began as a pun on the famous Star Wars quote “May The Force be with you,” has now become a global holiday that has spilled over into non-geek sectors. Every major retailer is offering deals in honor of this observance, and even people who aren’t mega-fans of the franchise were on social media bright and early this morning to wish others a “Happy Star Wars Day.”

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).

G.I. Joe: Retaliation - The Rock and Channing Tatum

Everyone has or wants their very own shared universe these days, trying to mimic the success that Marvel has had. But if Paramount Pictures has their way, they’ll have at least two shared universes in the coming years.

We already know that, after four movies directed by Michael Bay and a fifth on the way, Paramount is developing a Transformers shared universe with a large team of writers and plans for spinoffs, prequels, and so on. Now comes word that Paramount is developing yet another shared universe, this time bringing together five other Hasbro properties including G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand), Micronauts, Visionairies, and ROM.

‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Is Coming Soon To A Theater Near You!

Dungeons & Dragons logo

I don’t know whether to be excited or frightened, but there is a new Dungeons & Dragons movie coming to the silver screen in the near future. I mean, after all, each of the previous films have been lackluster to say the least. Other than that Wrath Of The Dragon God one, which was only kind of myeh.

Now the big deal here is budget, because it looks like Warner Bros. and Hasbro have decided to take this one a bit more seriously than the last ones. There is an entire army of fans out there that are more than willing to shell out some hard-earned cash to see the movie they (we) have all been dreaming about.

Transformers: Age of Extinction poster crop

Despite Transformers: Age of Extinction being one of the lowest grossing of all the live-action Transformer films, the franchise will be getting a fifth installment. Recent news of the franchise forming a story trust to expand for possible crossovers (though not one with G.I. Joe) would allow for endless – yet possibly mindless action-filled possibilities. We’re not really sure what to make of Transformers 5, due to the fact that development on the film has been inactive. Now we are getting word that Hasbro is eyeing Transformers 5 for a 2017 release.

Paul Feig to direct Play-Doh film

Movies based on toy brands and board games isn’t anything new. Hasbro’s Transformers, Battleship, Clue, and Ouija have all been adapted for the big screen. Last year, we saw Warner Bros launch their LEGO film franchise with The LEGO Movie, which now has a sequel and three spinoffs in the works. Now we are about to head back to the toy box as it has been announced that there will be a Play-Doh movie from 20th Century Fox film. And it will be directed by none other than Paul Feig (Bridesmaids).

Deadline reports that Fox has just sealed a deal with Hasbro for the live-action film based on the molding toy. Hasbro will produce with Chernin Entertainment and Feig’s Feigco banner.

Indominus Rex Tease Promo

Last month, we saw the tiniest sneak peek at the Indominus Rex, the terrifying new genetically engineered hybrid dinosaur making its big-screen debut in this summer’s Jurassic World. The film’s recent Super Bowl Spot also gave a glimpse at the new big baddie, which was created in the film by Hammond Creation Lab for the Jurassic Word theme park to be the most frightening dinosaur ever displayed.

On Saturday at the NY Toy Fair, Hasbro revealed their Jurassic World toy line, which included the first look at their new battery-operated Indominus Rex figure. Check out the photos here below, provided by Hasbro, of the new Indominus Rex, as well as all their Jurassic World toys, including figures, battle sets, and more for raptors like tyrannosaurus rex, stegasaurus, dilophosaurus, ceratosaurus, and others to be seen in the film. (Updated with video.)

OUI! OUI! Monopoly 80th Anniversary Sets In France To Have Real Money In Them

Monopoly 80th Anniversary  US Edition

Looks like some lucky folks in France who purchase a brand new Monopoly set might get a lot more than they bargained for. During celebrating of the legendary board game’s 80th anniversary this year, 80 sets that have been produced in France will have real Euro currency inside, according to The Washington Post. The cool total comes to 20,580 Euros, or about $23,000. Not bad for a $15 dollar investment (the general retail price of the game).

All throughout the year, there will be celebrations at hand for the real estate made easy game, which was originally released by Parker Brothers in 1935 and which quickly became a national phenomenon, and eventually, a global phenomenon, which it currently is. Through the decades since its introduction to the gaming market, there have been countless versions which span almost every language known to man, and also countless versions which have highlighted a particular product or brand, as in The Beatles, Spongebob, Family Guy, Star Wars, The Walking Dead and even focusing custom versions on a particular city like New York or Los Angeles. All told, the phenomenology of Monopoly continues to baffle pundits and delights audiences and new generations with each passing year.

Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset

As a child, I played with my share of Play-Doh, the wildly popular, colorful modeling clay used for both fun and education. As an adult, I’ve gifted a ton of the stuff to my hordes of godchildren, nieces, and nephews. These days, there’s all kinds of variations of the modeling compound with many accessories, playsets, and other tools to accompany it.

But, let’s talk about one of those tools – one that appeared to be more dildo than Play-Doh. Yes, that’s right, I said dildo, as an “extruder tool” that comes with the Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset is, in fact, shaped like a penis. And when you squeeze the Play-Doh out of it to make the “icing,” well, you can imagine what that looks like, right?
