I’m behind on tidbits, so this is partly me playing catch-up.

SF Tidbits For 6/15/07

  • Check out these cool, wooden SF-ish toys from Japan. Can you call something woodpunk? Reminds me of my Mecha Panda.
  • Marvel has decided which superhero will be next on the big screen. It’s Captain America! Make of that what you will.
  • The Season 1 DVD set of Heroes goes on sale on August 28th. It’s 7 DVDs, with 50+ deleted scenes (perhaps we’ll see the one where Peter forgets he can fly) and a never aired version of the pilot. And all this for only $60 ($40 at Amazon). Start saving now.
  • Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, will be getting her own reality show on Fox (of course!). They will be looking for the next ‘Elvira’, to help the current one with her obviously heavy work load. Although the plan of having an Elvira in malls across America at Halloween smacks of pure evil.
