I listened to a podcast recently where Andrew Stanton, the writer/director of Wall·E, was interviewed.

Looks like there's some neat stuff on the blog as a whole, but what really caught my eye was the Death Star.I'd love to see a really good direct-to-DVD animated movie [...]

Another batch of customized action figures have gotten my attention. And again, these were made by the same guy who did the Victorian-era Justice League figures I referenced awhile back.He's produced a set of Steampunk-style Star Wars action figures. I think my personal favorite is the reinterpretation of C-3PO.I like these mostly for the potential [...]
