Bejing’s Fake Olympic Mickey Mouse Statues

Thought you would get a kick out of these fake-ass Mickey Mouse statuettes on display in Beijing as the city gears up for the Olympics. When asked about the fake-assery of the souvenirs in question, a spokesperson apparently said, “They have square holes in their ears. They are not copies.”

Obviously.

Top Ten Weird Hulk Toys

The Incredible Hulk is a favorite character of mine, and with his steroidal physique and green skin he’s perfectly made for toys and action figures. Here are ten of the weirdest Hulk toys and licensed products.

10. Hulk Toy Chest

I love how this is essentially a round plastic container with a Hulk head sticking out of it. It’s a little too scary for the playroom, in my opinion.

9. The Hulk Rage Cage

A great name for a toy, great example for a hyper 8-year-old with impulse control issues. Comes with expandable chest and breakable cage.

8. Hulk Jointed Wall Hanger

The basic idea is that you would hang this on your wall and pose the green behemoth’s jointed paper limbs. Yes, that’s about it. Ta-da!

7. Giant Hulk Stuffed Doll

This toy is on the “weird” list mainly because of his precious puss — more of a pout than a roar.

6. Weird Mexican Bootleg Hulk

This unlicensed Hulk has disco hair.

5. Weird Mexican Bootleg Parachuting Hulk

If the Hulk is truly irrational, how will he remember to pull the chute string?

4. Hulk Cupcake Favors

Nothing says “cake decoration” like an angry Hulk head sticking out of frosting.

3. Santa Hulk

Ironically, his heart was two sizes too small.

2. Hulk Vu Writer

What the Hulk does for entertainment between destruction.

1. Hulk Shower Head

Wrong. Completely wrong.

Devo Sues McDonalds Over Happy Meal Hat

Devo is suing McDonalds over a Happy Meal toy that they claim infringes on their trademark hat.

At issue? One “New Wave Nigel,” a toy offered in the fast food chain’s American Idol promotion. New Wave Nigel sports a hat that Devo said infringes on their “Energy Dome” hat.

Devo bass player Gerard Casale was quoted as saying,

“This New Wave Nigel doll that they’ve created is just a complete Devo rip-off and the red hat is exactly the red hat that I designed, and it’s copyrighted and trademarked. They didn’t ask us anything. Plus, we don’t like McDonald’s, and we don’t like American Idol, so we’re doubly offended.”

Screw petroleum-based toys! The future is in paper.

Barbie Vs. Bratz Lawsuit

The makers of Barbie have accused the makers of Bratz of stealing their idea for a pouty urban fashion doll — and now the case is in court.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

“In a lawsuit set for trial on Tuesday in Riverside, Calif., Mattel accuses MGA Entertainment Inc., the maker of Bratz, of essentially stealing the idea for the pouty-lipped dolls with the big heads. Mattel is trying to seize ownership of the Bratz line, which analysts estimate racks up annual sales of more than $500 million. MGA denies wrongdoing, and accuses Mattel in a separate suit of copying Bratz.”

If that wasn’t enough intrigue in doll-land, the former Mattel designer who took the Bratz idea to MGA has just made a settlement with his former employer. That only adds ammunition to Mattel’s case against the Bratz producers.

At stake: millions and millions of dollars. And you thought Barbie dolls were just kids’ stuff.

Who’s YOUR favorite — Barbie or Bratz?
