For the Harvest Table: Splatter-Painted Plates from a Pittsburgh Artisan

Recently in our inbox: ceramics made by potter Francis DeFabo in his home studio in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. “The makers’ movement here in Pittsburgh is booming,” he wrote to us; we like, in particular, his charmingly splattered plates, which remind us of Justine’s equally charming splatter-painted floors in plate form, perfect for the Thanksgiving table and beyond.

Power of The Primes Starscream Torso Mode First In Hand Look

Kevin Liu's Youtube channel has broken a first direct look at the torso mode for Power of The Primes Starscream, shown in a video review of Deluxe Dreadwind.

We have a few screencaps of that, plus the jet mode (criminy those stickers), p...

Mattel Passes On Hasbro Merger Offer; Barbie's Transforming Autobot Convertible Not Expected In The Near Future

We reported about a week ago on the possibility of a merger between Hasbro and Mattel, initiated by Hasbro themselves. We have word via Reuters that this effort did not proceed very far, and as of the current time the dealings are not moving forward. Reuters reports via confidential sources that part of the failure to deal at this time was due to what Mattel indicated was an "undervaluing" of the company by Hasbro.
