Heroic Former Hasbro PR Rep Auctioning Hero Toys For A Heroic Cause

 

When I first started doing this whole “geek girl on the internet” thing, Joe Moscone and I met since he was in charge of the Hasbro boys line for Hunter PR and I was covering a lot of Star Wars and Marvel toys at the time. Joe not only became a colleague but a friend and remains a friend even after he left Hunter to work elsewhere.

One of the reaons I’ve always adored Joe so much is because of his big heart. Every year, Joe raises money for Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation and every year, he gives it his all.

This year, Joe’s added a little something to the mix — he’s collected a lot of toys over the years because of his work at Hunter and he’s putting those toys up on eBay with 100% of the proceeds going to charity. If you’re a collector, or just want to help, you’re going to watch to check it out.

I put the letter Joe sent me after the break. If I’m being honest, I’ll just say this: go help however you can because Joe’s great people and because cancer sucks.

Go Grabowskis!

Things I saw today that made me say “WANT!”

Most mornings, I go through a bunch of different product sites to look for cool things to talk about on Nerd Approved, Fashionably Geek, and That’s Nerdalicious. As part of that daily search, I find things that I love, but may not be right for the sites for some reason.

Until now, I just shared them on Twitter, but then I thought, why not do a round up of cool stuff I saw? So, I’m gonna do that occasionally.

Check them out after the break and enjoy.

My theory on “Who Will Fall” in the Star Wars Rebels season finale

So, the new Star Wars Rebels trailer dropped this morning and, along with it, some new promo photos for the season finale. The big question running through the new trailers is “Who will fall?” and speculation is flying about who we may lose on the show.

I have a theory and I feel pretty good about it.

Thing one: If you haven’t seen the trailer, it’s over at EW amongst my mass fangirl squeeage.

Thing two: If you don’t want to know, turn back now.

Theory and reasoning after the break ;-)
