More on the FF at BK
As I pointed out in my last post, The Fantastic Four are currently over at Burger King, and the (six) toys that they are issuing with the release of the new FF/Surfer Film (Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer) are actually quite cool.

The Toys have sort of an exaggerated anime feel to them, and — while they don’t “do” anything (light up, spin around, etc.) they stand really well, and — like I said, look very cool.

Last time out I posted photos of Torch, Mr. Fantastic, The Surfer and Thing. This time I’m delivering a picture of the final two of the series, Invisible Woman and Dr. Doom.

I can only hope that next year’s Iron Man, Hulk, and Nick Fury flicks will also arrive with fast food toys as cool as these. Oh yeah, also due out Next year are The Dark Knight (Batman), and Wonder Woman (but neither of those are due out until 2008).

Spidey Week may be over, but here come the FF!

Imagine my surprise when I went into Burger King the other day, and noticed that Spidey had been replaced by the Fantastic Four. Yeah, yeah, I knew that the FF has stealth-filmed their way into theaters this year (until I saw the trailer, I honestly had no idea the the film was even in the works — as soon as I pen the review, I’ll post it on my review page over at PopThought). Well, anyway, I’m really happy that not only is the film being made, but that BK has chosen to distribute Kid Meal toys with it.

There are six toys, and I already have four of them. I’m hoping to score the other two over the weekend or early next week. Here are the toys that I have collected thus far from BK. The toys are seriously cool, (especially for a Fast food toy collector like myself who dabbles in superheroes). Anyways, the next two toys in the set are Dr. Doom and the Invisible Woman.

I don’t know if there are any other comicbook films due out this year, but if there are, I hope that they also have fast food toy tie-ins.

Whelp, that’s it for now. See you in the funnypapers!
