Manila International Gift Show 2005 Day 3 Event

12.23.2005 - Its early and MC just got off from work. Hectic days are here again and ready for a 24 hour wake-up call, but its a one day event not to worry about as he said. As JoeShred and MC meet-up. He was pretty much exhausted from his night shift duty.

Our booth is this big.

The funny thing is these guys are quite a riot when setting up a booth as they went on there way to Pilgrim Paladin's place to pick him up with the rest of these stuff. I on the other hand was at the backseat as MC got off once we pulled over at Pilgrim's place. Pretty much the crazies about having this chronicled is different from MC's stories.

Wanna drop by?

I suggested that I tell the story instead, and he agreed. I didn't stay long though the story of these guys are really funny. Heer0san complains a lot. He was the earliest when we got there. The funny part is he's got his toys up for display. The rest of the guys didn't bring any, but the two 10 pound tarpuline the size of a billboard add, and a tarpuline stand would do just fine. Not to mention the walking cinema Azrael is very envious about.

For now my story had to cut this short. I'm off to work, and let the other guys continue there coverage for this event. I can't say that the huge tarpuline made a difference.

If you guys are interested in joining the high speed transformation contest drop by there booth. I'm sure you'll have fun not only to look at the displays, but to take home the prize. Don't forget the final round's at 3-4pm.

Fantastic Four 2 To Open Same Day As The Transformers


Twentieth Century Fox has just pulled one of the stupidest "strategy" moves I've seen in a long long time. They've just announced that Fantastic Four 2 will be released on July 4th 2007. Why is that so stupid? Well because Dreamworks has already announced that they are going to be releasing The Transformers on that exact same day!

Are the people over at Fox totally insane?!?! Do they actually think that Fantastic Four 2 has ANY hope at all of standing up toe to toe against a Transformers movie?!?! Have they totally lost their minds?

Let's see... on one hand we have one of the most anticipated live film projects of my generations time (Transformers), and over on the other hand we have a sequel to a film that made $153 million (not exactly MASSIVE blockbuster numbers) and disappointed most people who saw it. Hmmm... who would win that weekend? Hmmmm.... it's almost a toss up... oh wait... no... no it's no toss up... Transformers will kick the crap out of Fantastic Four 2 if they open on the same day.

Dear Good Folks at 20th Century Fox:

Do yourselves a favour and blink. Take Fantastic Four 2 off the July 4th 2007 date and move it 2 week earlier or later. You'll make money with this film... but if you go toe-to-toe with the Transformers you'll sink like Hoffa in a NY river.

Maybe they're trying to play chicken with Dreamworks and think they can get them to move off the date first. If Dreamworks is smart they'll stay right where they are. They're going to make a crap load of money on that weekend with or without Fantastic Four Moving off it.


TransFormers movie changes

from: according to increasing numbers of supposed "G1" characters are becoming victims of "reimagination"...

Soundwave [G1 - Cassette Desk] who played the role of spy with his cassette Transformers will now inexplicably become a helicopter?!?!?
Ratchet [G1 - Ambulance] the repairman and essentially "doctor" to injured Transformers will now become a firetruck?!?!?
Jazz [G1 - Martini Porche 935] will become some other generic sportscar - presumably because Porsche won't allow licencing of Jazz's original form.
Arcee [G1 - Cybertronian Car] will become a motorcycle (which she does in, surprise, the crappy 2004 "Transformers: Energon" remake!)
