Here’s Selina Kyle

Released via The Dark Knight Rises’ official website is this first look at Selina Kyle, as played by Anne Hathaway. I guess it has elements of her Catwoman costume and maybe here she’s stealing Batman’s new Batpod. Nothing too exciting yet.

He-Man Doco and M.A.S.K DVD

The complete series of the 1985-86 cartoon M.A.S.K is being released from Shout! Factory on DVD on August 9. That was a good cartoon, and there were a lot of them in the ’80s.

Illusion Is The Ultimate Weapon!

Led by multi-millionaire Matt Trakker, the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand—better known simply as M.A.S.K.—defends the world against Miles Mayhem and his nefarious international criminal organization known as VENOM, the very same group responsible for the death of Trakker’s teenage brother. With his own son, Scott, and secret strike force—including his friends, engineer Bruce Sato, courageous historian Hondo MacLean, mechanic Buddy Hawks, rocker Brad Turner, computer expert Alex Sector, stunt driver Dusty Hayes, and beautiful martial artist Gloria Baker—it’s up to Trakker, equipped with special power-granting masks and a garage of special militarized vehicles, to keep the world safe from Mayhem and the villainy of VENOM.

For the first time on DVD, all 65 episodes from the animated series that ran 1985-1986.

Saturday Morning Krusaders: entertaining look back with loyal fans

Speaking of great cartoons from the past, a new documentary is in the works focused on the apparently muddy origins to He-Man. Entitled Toy Masters, you can see the trailer below, which is 7 minutes long and not edited with much excitement, but I’ll certainly see the finished film.
