Continuing our new TNI Interview series, this week I was able to sit down with Jerry Macaluso, who first worked in Hollywood doing makeup and special effects for such movies as Toxic Avenger 2, Darkman and Spawn. Later he turned his sculpting talents to the world of action figures where he did work for such companies as Toy Biz, Hasbro and ReSaurus. From that came Sota Toys, which gave us one of the best articulated 6" Street Fighter action figure lines to date. Several years later after selling off Sota he started a second company called Pop Culture Shock, which he also eventually sold. In this interview I talk with Jerry about his time in Hollywood as well as his time in the toy industry. You will find out things like how the porn industry actually helped pave the way for the Sota Street Fighter figures, and what happened to never produced action figure lines like Micronauts and Darkstalkers. We learn why he left Sota and some of the struggles he faced at Pop Culture Shock, like trying to launch a Hot Toys quality line of 12" Street Fighter action figures. Jerry even talks about a never before seen toy line of his own creation that he started developing while at Pop Culture Shock called Defenders of Storm. It's a long one, but we hope you enjoy it. After watching please feel free to share your thoughts about it in the COMMENTS SECTION below and you can also check out images for many of the cool action figures referenced in the interview in our IMAGE GALLERY.
Just wondering if anyone is planning on picking up the revolution series of comics when they get into full swing this month? So far I've picked up a few where they say the revolution starts here issues(Transformers,Micronauts,and Rom) From what I've read it seems like it's going to be pretty good. Now just trying to keep up with all the comics that go in this storyline. As for Rom, and the Micronauts. I really don't remember a lot about either of these from my childhood. Did I really miss out, or were they easily over looked back then?
