Check out the third trailer for the upcoming G.I. Joe Retaliation movie. Inspired by the Hasbro franchise directed by Jon M. Chu and written by Rhett Reese. I’m little more excited by this film then Rise of the Cobra. I think cast of characters are more interesting plus the actors are way better suited. Original cast member to return from Rise of the Cobra, Snake Eyes (Ray Park), Storm Shadow (Lee Byung-hun) and Zartan (Arnold Vosloo). I am excited to see Bruce Willis as General Joseph Colton and Adrianne Palicki as Lady Jaye.
When Cobra spy Zartan has most of the Joe’s assassinated, the remaining Joe’s band together to strike back.
Other cast members include: Dwayne Johnson, D.J. Cotrona, Jonathan Pryce, Ray Stevenson
Channing Tatum, RZA and Elodie Yung.
G.I. Joe Retaliation hits theater March 29, 2013. Check out the trailer below.

If you haven’t been to Dylan’s you definitely need to go! its three levels of sweet yummy goodness. The Hub party was located on the top bar level, which was decked out in a Hub/Halloween theme. They had specialized drinks (non-alcoholic), mini-cupcakes, pizza, even PB&J sammiches. Along with prizes like Transformer Prime, My Little Pony and Littlest Pet Shop toys, face painting and decorate your own cookie stations.
Last week before the New York Comic Con, I got sit down one-on-one with Jordan Hembrough. from Travel Channel’s popular show the Toy Hunter and from Hollywood Heroes. I am huge fan of his show so I have to admit I was pretty nervous going into the interview. My index cards full of questions went blank, yikes! so I just started randomly blurting out questions. Lucky Jordan is a real cool guy and super friendly, which made the interview easy and fun. And I found we have a few things in common. Check out the entire interview below and you can catch Jordan on the Travel Channel’s Toy Hunter Wednesdays at 9pm ET/PT!

After toying with the idea of Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time or Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas nursery room themes. Soon to be father of Jack Always, daddy Jonaas, eventually decided on Pixar‘s Toy Story films. The next task was how to recreate Andy’s Room. A long time fan of the films, Jonaas used resources and inspirations from Pixar Planet forums along with the films to hash out the rooms every detail. Using material resources from places like Ikea, etsy, Walmart, Target, Kinkos and eBay. Jonaas got to work, based primarily on Andy’s room in Toy Story 2, the room also takes bits and pieces from the other two films. Jonaas first started buying toys resembling Woody and Buzz, Hamm piggy-bank, Rex, and even a bucket of Little Green Army Men with plans to buy more. Moving along with a fresh bucket of sky blue plant the adhesion of bright yellow stars, adding three blue wall-mounted shelves (where the broken toys are exiled to).
