Aquabats, They Might Be Giants Appeal to Aging Fans' Senses of Nostalgia

MusicAquabatsTwo big stories today for the music nerds of the 1990s: Join Forces & Be Part of The AQUABATS! Super Kickstarter! They're reviving the show and doing some releases of their TV program as well as songs from said TV program - with an option for new episodes. They want $1,110,000 and so far they've got a surprisingly decent chunk of that. There are DVDs, Blu-Rays, and T-Shirts but not vinyl records or toys.

TMBGAlso exciting: Lincoln 30th Anniversary Vinyl Re-issue. The red vinyl record is due around October, and it has a download code. It'll be $22 direct, and presumably similarly priced elsewhere. No word yet on a reissue of the first album or the most excellent early collection of b-sides, "Miscellaneous T."

Keshi Watch - Kaiju Big Battel Kickstarter

ToysKaikeshiVia Kickstarter and Seth: Kaikeshi, Kaiju Big Battel mini figures.

There was this wrestling thing called Kaiju Big Battel, where you had American and Japanese and other fans make costumes and fight or wrestle in familiar and not so familiar personae. (Yes, that's Pheyden.) The designs are pretty awesome, and the price per figure is not terible - $2-$3 per figure, depending on the tier you choose. It's about halfway funded with a month to go.

Mattel Does Weird Jurassic World Toy Marketing

JurassicVia Kerry: Jurassic World Dinosaur Escape - Official Lyric Video | Mattel Action! I honestly can't say if this is brilliant or kind of silly, but I can say it looks like a lot of money went into it and I almost can't believe that it could possibly be real. But there it is.

Toy marketing is difficult in an era without Saturday mornings, comic book ads for kids, and of course endless syndicated TV dumps. So this is, to say the least, interesting.
