As You Wish

An evil prince, gentle giant, a beautiful princess, pirates, a Spaniard seeking revenge against a six-fingered man and R.O.U.S.'s all seem like an unlikely formula for a fairy tale, but it definitely worked for the cult classic film "The Princess Bride" which celebrates it's 20th anniversary this year. And Neca will be releasing a line of action figures starting with the Dread Pirate Roberts (the alter ego of Westley) sometime in April. Wee! Look out for more to come later on in the year.

Little pig, little pig, let me in!

First there was the "Dead Serious" skeleton hoody, then came "Friday the 47th" with a Jason hockey mask. Now LRG blows the house down with another crazy hoodie for those wolves out there: "the Huff & Puff!"

Where the previous hoodies covered the wearer's full face, this open-faced hood demands attention as it places its wearer as the Big Bad Wolf or flips the script for the sheep that wants to wear wolf's clothing. Best worn those nights you want to howl at the moon or when you want to hunt down those Little Red Riding Hoods.

You can devour the Huff and Puff Hoodie (or the other way around) at

Tarina Tarantino Barbie

After launching a line of Barbie jewels and baubles, it's only fitting that jewelry designer extraordinaire Tarina Tarantino had a hand in designing a doll herself. In May, Mattel will release the Tarina Tarantino Barbie on its Gold Label -- "gold" being their most elite line.

Tarantino's doll rocks fushia locks (just like Tarina!) and is decked out in a satin yellow dress adorned with Swarovski crystals. The doll is also accessorized in miniature versions of her own designs, right from Barbie's handbag, belt, necklaces, earrings, tiara, etc. The retail price is $89.95.

Luke Feldman

I found Luke Feldman (remember Gie and Murse checked him out at the Pop Cling show and he was also at Comic Con to show off his animated short "Who Saved the Moon"?) at the Cartoon Art Museum's booth doing sketches for donations and also sold some of his prints.




While there, the prototype of his figure Maiko made it's public debut.


Annnddd, coming hot of the presses (literally -- it was printed the day before) a brand new Pop Cling wall decal made it's debut at Wondercon as well. Luke was telling me and my friend that it was inspired by the Victoria's Secret angels.


Oh yes, when I mentioned our blog, he said he was familiar with it. YAY! >^_^<
