Over the past 2 weeks Michael Crawford aka Captain Toy has been announcing the winners of his 2016 Poppies Awards. The awards are broken down into three divisions: MWC’s Picks, the People’s Picks and the Judge’s Picks (the judges are made up of 150 toy industry and toy press people).
In the category of “Best Bust 2016” Gentle Giant LTD. took home the Bronze Award for Michael’s Picks for our 2016 SDCC exclusive McQuarrie Chewbacca Bust.
Oftentimes we here at Gentle Giant are contacted by other companies to make products for them. This was the case when we were approached by Warner Brothers Home Entertainment to help them create an exclusive PVC pack-in premium figure for the Best Buy version of their Justice League Dark animated Blu-Ray release. The 4″ figure we helped create is the crabbiest mage in the DCU – John Constantine.
We were thrilled to be able to use our digital talents on this project and bring the DCU animated Constantine to life.
The highly anticipated mid-season seven premiere of the #1 show in all of television among adults 18-49, AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” launches Sunday, February 12th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the debut episode, “Rock in the Road,” Rick and the group are led to a new community where they are introduced to its inhabitants and ruler. A familiar face resurfaces.
The first half of Season 7 saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the group broken by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), forced to fall under his will and brutally convinced to live under his rules. The second half of the season will focus on preparing for war and gathering the supplies and numbers to take Negan down once and for all.
Rick’s group will find out yet again that the world isn’t what they thought it was. It’s much bigger than anything they’ve seen so far. While they have a singular purpose – to defeat Negan – it won’t come easy. More importantly, victory will require more than Alexandria. They need the numbers of the Kingdom and the Hilltop, but, similar to how Rick felt, Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Gregory (Xander Berkeley) do not want bloodshed. To convince them otherwise will take more than speeches. The lengths Rick and the group will have to go to in order to find weapons, food and new fighters is nothing short of remarkable.
We’ll meet new survivors in incredible places. We’ll see Rick and the group tested in ways we’ve never seen before. We’ll see treachery from people we trust. Rick is confident as he will see his group and many others band together with the common goal of taking down Negan. But no amount of planning will prepare the group for all-out war with Negan and his army.
