"Arriving in stores for the holidays is the 5" Sam figure from NECA. Sam is one of the newest additions to NECA's family of horror action figures, and comes from the Trick 'r Treat anthology. The one thing that all of the stories in the film have in common is Sam, a trick-or-treater with some basic rules for Halloween, and consequences for those who break them." Source
I took this photo in a small toy shop in the Downtown Burbank shopping mall. The Sam toy isn't for sale online yet, but you can pre-order here.

Lost Roybertito's DVD
Oct.28.08 | 1:19 AM
Once upon a time we released a standalone Roybertito's DVD. The reaction to Roy's 2005 premiere screening was so positive that we produced a small limited run and put them on ebay. Twelve days later, the DVDs were gone. Click the jacket art to enlarge.

The grave of Otto and Edith Breehn (no relation to me). Though born in the 1800's and long dead, their headstone is still around to creep me out. "PRECIOUS MEMORIES LINGER."
San Diego COMIC-CON 2008
Sep.14.08 | 5:45 PM
The project I'm co-writing for Imagemovers Digital just made it to finished 1st Draft status, and got turned in on Friday! I poked my head out of the subterranean shelter I dug in Burbank and realized I am despicably late again on the San Diego Con Report. So put away your bitch-ass kids, cuz it's-
Let's travel back in time several weeks to whatever month Comic-Con was in:
Work keeps me from doing the full Con this year, but I drive down to San Diego for our screening Friday night and signing Saturday. Saturday night is this big gathering of artists in the bar/lobby of a nearby hotel, where I draw the above for my very talented friend Kristen who does not love, nor hate but is indifferent to Superman.
We premiere a new Dr. Tran film, 100% ICE. It is our longest film so far, but only by a few seconds. The always loving San Diego audience gives it a warm reception.
100% ICE will probably be on Youtube sometime around New Year's.
Left to right: Dr. Tran co-creator Breehn Burns, voice talent Juni Bucher and Dr. Tran co-creator Jason Johnson. If you're interested in hearing Jason'smusic from our Furious Cinnamon Bun film, click his name above to go to his Myspace Music page.
That's the gilded Jason and the precious Bobble prototype. Shortly after the con, the Blue-shirted Bobble Trans sold out online, but as of right now, there are still white-shirted Maccodity Bobbles for sale.
Spike's cute "Booth Girl," Cassie. Once upon a time, we were going to need "Dr. Tran girls" for a G4TV thing we were doing, and Cassie was all lined up to help out. But the thing never worked out. So Cassie's mad.
Cassie's Butt. Spike makes her wear this, which provides hours of entertainment and opportunities to fight off intense primitive urges during the day-long signing.
This guy tried to sell me a Baby Dr. Tran but I didn't have that kind of cash.
Seth Green signs Spike's big Tarp o' Signatures. I'm never sure how Spike gets celebrities to show up and sign it, but look! Seth Green!
ABOVE - Triumph the Insult Comic Dog reports from Comic-Con for Late Night with Conan O'Brien. He interviews Spike (Spike & Mike's Festival of Animation) during our DVD signing at Spike's booth.
Click Here to watch the Conan clip, or Here to watch behind-the-scenes footage.
Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons,also signs the big tarp. This was the highlight of the con for me.
When Matt stops by, a crowd forms around the booth and he gets blocked in next to me. He seems to be in a hurry to leave, so while he's momentarily trapped I introduce myself, tell him we are huge fans of his and offer him a free DVD. He says, "Sure, I'll take a Dr. Tran."
I have to let it sink in for a second, but I think he already knows what Dr. Tran is. Now I can't be sure, but after deliberating I have decided to believe that Matt Groening knew about Dr. Tran (making that the highlight of the con for me).
PS - If you have a few spare minutes, why not watch an impromptu booth interview with Jason?
