- There's new DragonBall animation in the works. It's an adaptation of Episode of Bardock, the spin-off manga published in V-Jump. Episode of Bardock is a sequel to the TV special starring Goku's father Bardock. The animated Episode of Bardock will be screened at Jump Festa next month. The DragonBall Jump Festa special from 2008, The Return of Son Goku and Friends!!, has yet to be released in North America so I'm expecting a long wait for Episode of Bardock as well.>
- And here are some more new Thundercats toys including a set of chibi figures. I suspect these will be showing up in stores very soon. Bandai's 2012 Power Rangers Samurai toys are already being found.
- Toy News International has a look at some of NECA's Evil Dead 2 action figures. I'm really looking forward to these. They look great especially the possessed Ash with the tape player and Linda's severed head.

So apparently this is what Rhys Ifans as The Lizard will look like in The Amazing Spider-Man. It looks like a skinny Killer Croc. Or Voldermort with a tail. What it doesn't look much like is the Lizard as he's been depicted in the comics. He's far too humanoid. It kind of takes some of the fun out of the idea of a lizard man. Lately in the comics he's been depicted as even more monstrous than in previous incarnations. I thought they would push it even further in the movie but it seems like they went in the other direction.
