I would think there would be a huge demand for theme park sets. They used to have some not-Lego models of some rides, but they didn't really look anything like the actual attractions.

That looks awesome! I can't wait to try it out. I heard a rumor somewhere that they were going to make passports to check off all of the planets/destinations you visit. Thought that sounded like fun.

Yeah, definitely better than the Empire parody, but not quite as good as the first one.

When we went to Japan, we picked up a building set that was a model kit of Stitch, I'd even settle for some of those.....

I'm intrigued, only problem is the only system I have is the Wii, and I have no idea if the platform is supported. Not to mention, I got Epic Mickey for Christmas, and have yet had time to crack it open.

At the end of the article, it mentions being on the Wii, 360, PS3, and PC.

Good. I have no plans to buy another system - takes away from WDW - until maybe the next Wii.

Whew...and best of all, the Disney aspect will induce DW to buy it. Heck, she let me spring for a PS2 years ago so she could play Kingdom Hearts

Ready, Set Your DVR, Go!

On Sunday, May 29th, The Science channel will run a marathon of Firefly starting at 8 am. Throw on a brown coat and settle in with this complete revisiting of this short-lived Joss Whedon sci-fi serial, kicking off with its big-screen follow-up Serenity.

Comic geeks like me should check out Jeff Pepper's blog post about a Disney MGM opening comic plotted out by Don Rosa! It never was completed or printed, but there's a reprint of the storyboard with script posted.

Looking through it, I was reminded of some of the cool things about MGM when it first opened. HS is still my favorite park, but it sure is different today than it was in '89!
