J.J. Abrams' "Force For Change" put up another video with teases of wonderful prizes like advance screenings of the movie, but let's face it - there's no reason to bury the lede.  While filming in the UK, Mr. Abrams decided to give us all a sneak peak of a new vehicle which is probably the absolutely best way to get anyone to watch a video for a charity.  Congratulations, UNICEF!

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 8, 2014

The H.P. Lovecraft-inspired Legends of Cthulhu Retro Action Figure Toy Line ends on Kickstarter in a few hours - and includes Mr. Lovecraft as a stretch goal.  The 3 3/4-inch action figures from Warpo Toys are designed to look like a product of the late 1970s and early 1980s, down to the packaging painting.  If you've been following ReAction, or Bif Bang Pow!'s Twilight Zone, or Zica's Six Million Dollar Man, they're like that.  And if you don't know what any of this means, think Kenner 1978.
