Amid very high anticipation, we are proud to present the 1/6th scale Superman Collectible Figure from the classic superhero movie Superman in 1978.
We’d like to share with our fans that a portion of this collectible figure’s sales benefits will be donated to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation by Hot Toys Limited. The Reeve Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy. We hope that we can contribute to the foundation and the injured through the enjoyment of collectible figures.

Here's my 4th piece for my TMNT series, Donatello. I went with the blue for an electrical effect to subtly imply his affiliation with inventing stuff. I actually had this see-through computer panel in front of him with some tech programming type going on, but I was too torn with it and it didn't really look right so I scrapped it. If it wasn't so up close, I'd probably have kept it. Oh well ;)
I decided to go a bit different with Michelangelo, I based his design off of a painted turtle species. I liked the idea of him being somewhat different than his three brothers because his personality is a bit more outgoing and energetic. I think it fits him best. In a side story in Volume 2, it's revealed at an early age that Michelangelo was a talented artist. Without getting too literal with the painted turtle concept, I still enjoyed giving him a bit of a louder design than the other 3. Michelangelo was my first favorite when I was a kid.
Bootleg Duff Beer is sold in Mexico, Argentina, Colombia and Chile.
Here's an excerpt from the article:
If you want to buy a “genuine” bottle of Duff beer, you’ll have to travel to Mexico, Argentina, Colombia or Chile where the bootleg Simpsons beer is a hot seller.
The Duff dearth north of the border has only made fans more desperate. Online message boards buzz about where to find Duff. On eBay, an empty bottle of Duff beer from Argentina sells for $14.99; a decal off the Colombian product is being offered for $8.99.
At Rock Garden, a bar in Bogotá, Duff commands import prices — about $5.50 a bottle — even though it’s brewed in the nearby city of Medellin.
Duff Sudamerica, the Chilean producer hopes to sell $750,000 worth of the brew this year alone—but it seems likely that their efforts will eventually be thwarted by Fox and Groening, who has gone after Duff imitators in the past.
Groening fears that selling Duff beer, especially in the states, would be “tantamount to pushing alcohol on minors.”
On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) has it all…married to a famous spy hunting television reporter, a new baby and intelligent twin step kids. But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), who clearly don’t want her around, is her toughest challenge yet. Also, her husband, Wilbur (Joel McHale), wouldn’t know a spy if he lived with one which is exactly the case – Marissa’s a retired secret agent.
Marissa’s world is turned upside down when the maniacal Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the planet and she’s called back into action by the head of OSS, home of the greatest spies and where the now-defunct Spy Kids division was created. With Armageddon quickly approaching, Rebecca and Cecil are thrust into action when they learn their boring stepmom was once a top agent and now the world’s most competitive ten year olds are forced to put their bickering aside and rely on their wits. With a little help from a couple of very familiar Spy Kids, Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara), and some mind-blowing gadgets, they just may be able to save the world and possibly bring their family together while they’re at it.
