  1. The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) Board of Directors announced today that Bob Chapek has been named Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company, effective immediately. Mr. Chapek most recently served as Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. Robert A. Iger assumes the role of Executive Chairman and will direct the Company’s creative endeavors, while leading the Board and providing the full benefit of his experience, leadership and guidance to ensure a smooth and successful transition through the end of his contract on Dec. 31, 2021. “With the successful launch of Disney’s direct-to-consumer businesses and the integration of Twenty-First Century Fox well underway, I believe this is the optimal time to transition to a new CEO,” Mr. Iger said. “I have the utmost confidence in Bob and look forward to working closely with him over the next 22 months as he assumes this new role and delves deeper into Disney’s multifaceted global businesses and operations, while I continue to focus on the Company’s creative endeavors.” Mr. Iger added: “Bob will be the seventh CEO in Disney’s nearly 100-year history, and he has proven himself exceptionally qualified to lead the Company into its next century. Throughout his career, Bob has led with integrity and conviction, always respecting Disney’s rich legacy while at the same time taking smart, innovative risks for the future. His success over the past 27 years reflects his visionary leadership and the strong business growth and stellar results he has consistently achieved in his roles at Parks, Consumer Products and the Studio. Under Bob’s leadership as CEO, our portfolio of great businesses and our amazing and talented people will continue to serve the Company and its shareholders well for years to come.” “I am incredibly honored and humbled to assume the role of CEO of what I truly believe is the greatest company in the world, and to lead our exceptionally talented and dedicated cast members and employees,” Mr. Chapek said. “Bob Iger has built Disney into the most admired and successful media and entertainment company, and I have been lucky to enjoy a front-row seat as a member of his leadership team. I share his commitment to creative excellence, technological innovation and international expansion, and I will continue to embrace these same strategic pillars going forward. Everything we have achieved thus far serves as a solid foundation for further creative storytelling, bold innovation and thoughtful risk-taking.” Susan Arnold, independent Lead Director of the Disney Board, said, “The Board has been actively engaged in succession planning for the past several years, and after consideration of internal and external candidates, we unanimously elected Bob Chapek as the next CEO of The Walt Disney Company. Mr. Chapek has shown outstanding leadership and a proven ability to deliver strong results across a wide array of businesses, and his tremendous understanding of the breadth and depth of the Company and appreciation for the special connection between Disney and its consumers makes him the perfect choice as the next CEO. “Mr. Chapek will also benefit from the guidance of one of the world’s most esteemed and successful business leaders, Bob Iger,” Ms. Arnold continued. “Over the past 15-plus years as CEO, Mr. Iger has transformed The Walt Disney Company, building on the Company’s history of great storytelling with the acquisitions of Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Twenty-First Century Fox and increasing the Company’s market capitalization fivefold. Disney has reached unparalleled financial and creative heights thanks to Mr. Iger’s strong leadership and clear strategic vision. We believe Mr. Chapek’s leadership and commitment to this strategy will ensure that the Company continues to create significant value for our shareholders in the years ahead.” In Mr. Chapek’s new role as CEO, he will directly oversee all of the Company’s business segments and corporate functions. Mr. Chapek will report to the Executive Chairman, Mr. Iger, and the Board of Directors. He will be appointed to the Board at a later date. A new head of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products will be named at a future time. Mr. Chapek served as Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products since the segment’s creation in 2018, and prior to that was Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts since 2015. As Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, Mr. Chapek oversaw the Company’s largest business segment, with operations around the globe and more than 170,000 employees worldwide. The segment includes Disney’s iconic travel and leisure businesses, encompassing six resort destinations in the United States, Europe and Asia, a top-rated cruise line, a popular vacation ownership program, and an award-winning guided family adventure business. Disney’s global consumer products operations include the world’s leading licensing business across toys, apparel, home goods, digital games and apps, the world’s largest children’s print publisher, Disney store locations around the world, and the shopDisney e-commerce platform. During his tenure at the Parks segment, Mr. Chapek oversaw the opening of Disney’s first theme park and resort in mainland China, Shanghai Disney Resort; the addition of numerous guest offerings across Disney’s six resort destinations in the U.S., Europe and Asia, including the creation of the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World and the addition of Marvel-inspired attractions around the globe; and the expansion of Disney Cruise Line with the announced construction of three new ships. From 2011 to 2015, Mr. Chapek was President of the former Disney Consumer Products segment, where he drove the technology-led transformation of the Company’s consumer products, retail and publishing operations. Prior to that, he served as President of Distribution for The Walt Disney Studios and was responsible for overseeing the Studios’ overall content distribution strategy across multiple platforms including theatrical exhibition, home entertainment, pay TV, digital entertainment and new media. He also served as President of Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, where he spearheaded the successful “vault strategy” for the Company’s iconic films and transformed the primary format of home entertainment from DVD to Blu-ray. Before joining Disney in 1993, Mr. Chapek worked in brand management at H.J. Heinz Company and in advertising at J. Walter Thompson. Mr. Chapek earned a B.S. in Microbiology at Indiana University Bloomington and an MBA from Michigan State University.
  2. Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS) and The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) today announced a renewal of Hasbro’s rights under its strategic merchandising relationship for major Disney entertainment properties Marvel and Star Wars. Under the Marvel license agreement, Hasbro will continue to develop a wide range of toys and games for Marvel's global Universe of more than 8,000 characters, including Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, Black Widow and Black Panther. The Star Wars license agreement includes the rights to toys and games based on entertainment like Star Wars: The Clone Wars and The Mandalorian, incorporating fan favorite characters such as The Child from The Mandalorian, affectionately known as Baby Yoda. The agreements are multi-year agreements. he agreements cover entertainment released during their terms for the respective franchises, including all film and television properties as well as properties from Disney+. "We are pleased to build on our relationship with Disney and extend our agreement for Marvel and Star Wars franchises," said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's Chairman and CEO. “Disney’s celebrated franchises are consistently ranked as top toy properties and provide expansive content for us to build upon for years to come.” "Our longstanding relationship with Hasbro has provided generations of Disney fans with quality play experiences," said Ken Potrock, president, consumer products commercialization, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. "Continuing this successful collaboration for our Marvel and Star Wars franchises enables families and fans around the world to immerse themselves in our iconic stories and engage with our rich characters.”
  3. Shown below via Amazon Canada is a look at the upcoming Mandalorian and The Child (Baby Yoda) BrickHeadz coming from LEGO. These are based on the new Disey+ Star Wars: The Mandalorian series.
  4. Hasbro today held their Q4 2019 Earnings Conference Call where CEO Brian Goldner spoke to members of the financial media. During the event there was no mention of whether Hasbro had renewed their licenses with Disney for either Star Wars or Marvel. For those not familiar, the current licenses will expire at the end of this year. While Goldner would not commit to any future plans beyond this year for those brands, or their continued releationship with Disney, he did say he remained positive on the prospects of them continuing to work together. While one would expect some kind of official announcement to come soon from either Disney or Hasbro on the future of the Star Wars and Marvel licenses, it's not terribly surprising that it did not come today. Hasbro will be holding a full Year 2019 Earnings Conference Call and Annual Investor Update at the New York Toy Fair on February 21, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time. If there is no announcement at that point about continuing on with these licenses, then fans might want to start panicking.

  6. Two images showcasing the new Revoltech Jessie - review available on the site as well! First off, the “When she loved me..” expression... and here she is with the rest of her Revoltech gang!
  7. The newly re-released Legacy of Revoltech Jessie figure! Quick thoughts : Beautifully sculpted and painted, this for me is the best of the three Toy Story Revoltech figures Contents : Jessie figure X 3 face sculpts X 9 hand options X 1 Red cowgirl hat X 1 rope X 1 name plate Figure base and stand Articulation : Unsurprisingly, the figure boasts excellent articulation. Head rotation side to side and front to back 360degree Moveable eyes Ponytail rotation at the top of the ponytail and at the bottom 360degree waist rotation 360degree upper leg rotation Knee articulation Ankle articulation and rotation 360degree shoulder rotation Elbow articulation Wrist articulation Sculpt : Excellent character likeness. Well proportioned body shape with excellent details. The outfit is well designed with raised buttons, seams and arm and leg flares. There is a raised drawstring hoop on her back. The hair design is superb, with small details capturing the rope-like style of her hair Paint : Vibrant colours, well applied throughout the figures. No paint issues with my figure at all. Final thoughts : I found the Revoltech Buzz Lightyear somewhat disappointing, his limb proportions were off with some questionable sculpting. Jessie has raised the bar however. With faultless character likeness, excellent articulation and painting. My only issue is a lack of accessories but what she does come with is well executed. I would say she is the best of the three Toy Story Revoltech figures SCORE: 9/10
  8. Getting into the Spooky spirit with this shot of the Disney Store ToyBox Jack Skellington figure! Behind the Scenes
  9. A look at the newly released, Legacy of Revoltech Buzz Lightyear. Check out the Toy Photography section for some more advanced shots. Initial thoughts - He’’s a good figure but just isn’t quite the same quality as others in Revoltech’s Disney line. I’ll get into that in more detail below. ARTICULATION - As you would expect from a Revoltech Figure. Highly articulate, shoulder joints, elbow joints, wrist rotation and wrist joints, finger and thumb joints, hip joints, upper thigh rotation, knee joints, ankle joints, waist joint, neck rotation and neck joint, canopy opens and closes also. He also features movable eyes. PAINT APPLICATION - I mention this specifically due to a couple QC issues with mine where the paint had either been slightly misapplied or slightly chipped particularly on the green chest panel. However, the colours are vibrant and true to the original design. They capture the light beautifully as well. ACCESSORIES - These are good but again compared to others in the line there are not as many as you would expect. There are two head sculpts as you will see. A smiling Buzz and a more intense smirk. Both feature the trademark eye movement but due to a design flaw wherein the inner part of the head sculpt is too narrow, meaning the eye joint cannot fit inside the head if moved too far in one direction! However you can still definitely change the direction of sight which adds great variation particularly for photography and is a reason I really enjoy these figures. The little details really bring them to life. There are attachable wings which are well detailed and a small closed wing panel to replace them when not in use. There are also three green army men, a Buzz Lightyear name plate and a clear plastic display stand. A removal arm is also included as a feature to replicate the classic scene from Toy Story but the way it is executed just looks like a joint you could remove anyway... OVERALL - He is a good figure, not great. And I think compared to the high quality Revoltech have produced with Woody, Judy Hopps and Winnie the Pooh, I just expected a bit more. He is not a terrible expensive figure though and the articulation and details do allow for terrific variety of posing and photography and all in all, he is a fine addition to the Revoltech Disney line. Just sadly not quite up there with the best. FINAL SCORE - 6/10
  10. A shot of the new Legacy of Revoltech Buzz Lightyear. I have included a few ‘behind the scenes’ shots of explain the laser effect. In short, I used atmosphere aerosol spray to capture the laser from a laser measuring device. More shots to come this week and please check out my review as well!
  11. While it is not scheduled to open until later this year (Summer at Disneyland, Fall at Walt Disney World), select members of the media were recently given a sneak preview of Disney's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Set during the battle between the First Order and the Resistance, guests will travel to the Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, one of the two main attractions, will send groups of six (two pilots, two gunners and two flight engineers) on a mission for Hondo Onaka, and your results (good or bad), will follow you throughout the land. Rise Of The Resistance, Disney's longest ride, will see guests captured and taken aboard a massive Star Destroyer, including full size TIE Fighters and AT-AT's The ride will also feature John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Issac,and Daisy Ridey portraying their characters from the films. In addition to the rides, there will as be a number of restaurants and shops dealing in in-universe wares. For drinks, specifically alcoholic ones, there's Oga's Cantina, which will features drinks with names like the Fuzzy Tauntaun, Dagobah Slug Slinger, Bloody Rancor and Bespin Fizz, as well as music from DJ R-3X, "otherwise known as Rex, the former Starspeeder 3000 pilot droid from the original Star Tours in Disneyland).You'll also be able to try such dishes as the Smoked Kaadu Ribs sold at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, and the Sour Sarlaac, a drink sold at Ronto Roasters. From the Toydarian Toymaker'and Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, to Savi’s Workshop, and the Droid Depot, the merchandise from Galaxy's Edge is made to have an in-universe feel. "Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be the first area within the Disney park designed to fully integrate with the Play Disney Parks mobile app, which... will allow guests to find secrets and Easter eggs strewn throughout the land, such as translating a galactic language, participating in smaller side missions and learning about hidden treasures inside crates and containers. The app will also allow guests to interact with the droids roaming around, as well as ships, display screens and even drinking fountains. Disney cast members (park staff) will also be a large part of the land. They will all have newly designed costumes, which we previewed, and they will have character backstories to better interact in the world with guests. One of the more interesting parts of the costume aspect is that the staff will get to choose their ensemble from a large array of options. They will be allowed to mix and match some looks to give their own unique style."(Sources: Hollywood Reporter and StarWars.com)
  12. Are movie studios starting to shy away from the San Diego Comic-Con? The question comes to mind as Deadline is reporting that movie studios such as Sony, Universal, Warner Bros. DC film studio and Lionsgate will not be attending the convention. Studios currently set to be attending are Disney/Marvel, Paramount and New Line. No reason for Universal, Warner Bros DC film studio or Lionsgate to not be attending but Sony does have their hands full with Spider-Man: Far From Opening opening next week and Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood upcoming on July 26th. Their promo teams have events set up for the whole year with Zombieland 2: Double Tap (October 18th), Charlie’s Angels (November 15th), The Grudge (Janaury 3rd), the comic-book feature adaptation Bloodshot starring Vin Diesel (February 21st), Blumhouse’s Fantasy Island (February 28th) and, farther out, Marvel’s Morbius (July 31st, 2020).
