Odds and ends Apr. 13 2010

I stand corrected, THERE ARE Phineas and Ferb toys available. They are mostly plushes, but they have a Perry the Platypus (Agent P) Plushie with sounds. There is also a Doctor Doofenshmirtz plushie. Not only that but they have a Transforming Perry/ Agent P plush toy.

By the Power of Grayskull I HAVE SOME WRITERS!!!
MOTU movie has found its writers and none of them is Justin Marks!!! Mike Finch and Alex Litvak are the writers (they did the script for Predators.)

Now These guys will have the pleasure of working with Mattel, who seems to drag their feet with their brands when it comes to adapting toys into something else. (Max Steel movie anyone?)

And in MOTU's case they've an elaborate history for the characters but never intended to be used beyond the action figure cardbacks. (not as a graphic novel or anything else.) THough they admit that they've mishmashed a bunch of stuff using the 200X cartoon and the toys card backs.
Or so said Scott "ToyGuru" Neitlich from Mattel. (He's the MOTU Brand Manager IIRC. Aka the guy showing the Orko Water Trick on the last Action Figure Woes)

I haven't had some hey what the!? in a while well here is one:
Man stalks rattler and kills it.
In a Steve Irwin fused with Bear Grylls move a Florida man stlaked a diamondback rattler (6-ft of poisonus snake) and killed it in order to protect his neighbors and pets. BTW the guy rassles gators.

This is a diamondback rattler.

This is what the "Snake Killer" does occasionally. (not the same person as in the article)

This is what I thought of when I read the title of the Article...
Now if you'll excuse me I have to go through the rain and feed from a Tree frog...
