In 2006 Mattel launched a line of toys based on Eiichiro Oda's One Piece. Unfortunately 4Kids' adaptation of One Piece somehow didn't attract much of an audience, and the Mattel line didn't last long. But they had more planned including new figures of Monkey D. Luffy, Sanji and a bare-chested Roronoa Zoro (or rather Zolo as he likely would've been on the package). There's also new characters Portgas D. Ace, Arlong brandishing his teeth in his hands, and Tony Tony Chopper in his Arm Point form. What figures weren't planned were Robin and Nami, in keeping with Mattel's girl-unfriendly policy. That's a reason why I can't say I miss the line all that much.

These lists are always a chore to put together. It's hard to figure out which movies I'm excited for when they're still months away. However this year it seems like I had a lot more to choose from. That's a good thing, and hopefully there's some movies I don't see coming that I end up enjoying a lot. Honorable-ish Mention: Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace 3D 10. Lincoln 9. Skyfall 8. The Amazing Spider-Man 7. Prometheus in the trailer are awfully familiar. Prequel or not, the movie looks amazing and I'm looking forward to it. Will there be Space Jockeys? Do I want there to be Space Jockeys? I have no idea. 6. Dark Shadows 5. Silent Hill: Revelation 3D 4. G.I. Joe: Retaliation 3. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey fantastic trailer that it really hit home for me. I know nothing of the novel so I didn't know what to expect. The Hobbit already addresses my problem with the Lord of the Rings trilogy; not enough dwarfs. Clearly that's not going to be an issue with The Hobbit. 2. The Dark Knight Rises 1. The Avengers

G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailer is up. There's the Rock as Roadblock, Ray Stevenson as Firefly, the actress who was supposed to play Wonder Woman as Lady Jaye, Jonathan Pryce as Zartan as the President, Bruce Willis sleepwalking his way to another paycheck and ninjas. Lots of ninjas. The trailer kind of gives away Channing Tatum's death without actually depicting it. Then again maybe he'll just fall into a coma that he'll wake up from off-screen.

New posters have been revealed for both The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man. The new DKR poster matches the feel of the first one and oddly enough so does the Spider-Man poster. Looks like dark and shadowy is in.

These things are running later and later. The fallout from that is I included some stuff that was ordered in November but that arrived in December. Hey it still counts.
