Nick Stoller Says the Muppet People Are Working on a New TV Show
It kills me that Muppets Most Wanted tanked at the box office. I loved it, but I think it just didn’t stand a chance going up against Divergent or whatever it’s called. I hope Stoller is right about Disney working on a new TV show, I’d hate for Disney to abandon the Muppets.

‘Power Rangers’ Getting a Reboot Feature Film by Lionsgate
This doesn’t surprise me, and actually it’s not the most far-fetched thing to reboot. It’s basically superheroes, giant robots, and Kaiju. If they leave out the goofier aspects (or embrace them) from the show, it could make a decent movie.

Great photo.

This guy collected 75,000 McDonald’s items over 50 years
I can’t imagine having the dedication to collect only one thing, let alone the money, time, and space it would take to have as large of a collection as this guy. His house looks like a McDonald’s museum. Crazy.

Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Baxter Stockman Fly Version Figure
I’m not sure what to think about this. In face, I’m almost losing the will to keep up with the Nick figures. There are some cool ones out that I don’t have, it’s just time and money consuming to hunt them all down, and I’ve got too much junk as it is. What do you guys think about the new Baxter Stockman?

Cool Stuff: LEGO McDonald’s Mecha

Big MaK

Regular old McDonald’s food in LEGO form would be cool enough to warrant posting on the site, but take that a thousand steps further and make a Mecha made out of LEGO McDonald’s food and you’ve got a guaranteed spot on the site.

The Big MaK by Siercon and Coral should be licensed by McDonald’s for their Happy Meals, but I doubt we’ll get that lucky. For now we’ll just have to admire their work through the Internets.

Cool Stuff: Avatar Happy Meal Toys

Avatar Happy Meal Toys

Well, the release of the epicly-hyped film Avatar is just around the corner. For better or worse, I’m going to see the movie at my local IMAX theater on Friday. I previously told you about the cool Avatar Toys that I unfortunately haven’t had a chance to play with yet, but today I bring you something new: Avatar Happy Meal Toys.

I didn’t have any nieces or nephews handy when I saw these at my local McDonald’s, so I haven’t picked any up yet, but they will be mine. Whether it’s great or a dud, you can’t deny the impact Avatar will have on the nostalgia of 2009, so the Avatar Happy Meal Toys have earned their place on my junk shelf.

Head over to the official Happy Meal website (weird) to check out more and download the one-size-doesn’t-fit-all Avatar Happy Meal Toy Wallpaper.

Oh, and how often do PG-13 movies get Happy Meal toys?
