There's Specialman, Spaderman, and introducing -- Monica!
Don't miss the rest.
In a direct assault on the bank accounts of geeks everywhere, Disney World's gift shop is getting a build-your-own-droid area.
Right after exiting the recently-revamped Star Tours ride, you can stop into the Tatooine Trader's Droid Factory and assemble a custom combination of droid body, dome and legs in various shapes and colors.
As a nod to blister-pack-obsessed collectors, the finished figures even come in their own packaging.
The Droid Factory debuts on May 18 (during Disney World's next Star Wars Weekend) and will be open at least until June 10. Somehow I suspect it will be popular enough to keep running long after that, though.
After much speculation about Loki's alien army in The Avengers -- are they Skrulls, or something else entirely? -- we have our first good look at one of Loki's soldiers, courtesy of a C2E2 presentation from toy company Diamond Select.
Diamond is marketing a 7-inch figure of one of the baddies, simply called "Loki's Army Footsoldier." It has grey skin and gold armor, and looks distinctly un-Skrull-like.
Fortunately, Joss Whedon himself has settled the ongoing debate about the invading army: they're the Chitauri, a shapeshifting race from the Ultimate Marvel Universe that has been referred to as "Skrulls" on some other planets.
So, they're not exactly Skrulls. More like Skrulls-plus.
