‘Toy Wars’ Drama From Josh Gad, Josh Schwartz & Seth Gordon Set at Amazon

Actor-writer Josh Gad (Angry Birds) is set to star and co-write, Josh Schwartz is attached to co-write and showrun and Seth Gordon is expected to direct Toy Wars, a limited drama series in development at Amazon, which follows the real-life battle between American toy giants Hasbro, the company behind GI Joe, Transformer and My Little Pony toys, and Barbie maker Mattel in the 1980s and 1990s.

Gad, Schwartz and Ryan Dixon will co-write the project based on the non-fiction book by G. Wayne Miller Toy Wars: The Epic Struggle Between G.I. Joe, Barbie, and the Companies that Make Them. Schwartz will serve as showrunner, with Gordon attached to direct the pilot, subject to availability.

Might be cool.

I hope this is as easy to find as the Snowtrooper Officer (until it vanished forever 2 months before the movie came out)

That value Falcon never even showed up here. I'm assuming these won't either.

Mine has apparently made it to my parents' place. Thanks again Paul!

Looked like the E-11 blaster had a new paintjob too? I noticed some silver on it, but it could have been the camera flash reflecting off of the plastic window. Looked good if it's new.

Picked up the new Commissioner Gordon figure the other day. Also out is Ra's Al Ghul, which I'll get sooner or later. I'm down to just a few wants from the figures currently out.

There's a lot of good stuff coming in 2017 too. Saw a listing for a Batman with multiple heads (neutral, angry, shocked, bloody, Bruce Wayne, etc.) which looks cool.

I went to my first NFL game yesterday, Chicago vs. Houston! A buddy had some friends from Chicago in town for the Cubs/Astros series and  we got a good deal on some great seats for those and the football game as well. Gotta say, as someone used to going to college games, the NFL live experience might not be for me. Too many people getting up/down to grab beers, or stopping on the stairs to watch plays, which obscures the view of the field. I just wanna see the game! I'll stick to watching at home on TV.

Still a fun experience. Good to have football back. RIP my weekends.

I keep looking for Han, Leia, and Phasma, since they've never shipped here, but my local Walmarts are pretty much void of any Star Wars products now. All that remains are the unclearanced speeders and non-figure stuff. Even the 6 inch Finns and Zuvios are gone!

I ordered two cases of the online only wave, the second case solely to get a second Royal Guard. I ended up selling the extra Ahsoka to McMetal, popped it in a bubble mailer and it apparently got crushed in transit to him. Always felt bad about that one so I'm glad he has a chance to get a MOC one (or for me to make that one up to him).

I'm thinking of selling off my Smuggler's Bounty POPs if anyone is interested. None of them have been opened.

Target is also running 10% off all Star Wars sets this week, with 20% off select sets. Unfortunately the stock was either picked over or the boxes looked like they had been hit by a train.

Krennic looks awesome. Might be a rare case where I get the 5POA AND Black Series (if it's coming).

Is that a removable hat on Andor?

Army builders are actually most of the 5POA figures I've purchased. Most of my stuff is on a shelf anyway, might as well buy 2 or 3 to replace the yellowing troopers and fill out the ranks. The Stormtrooper will be good for that too.
