    So on the train this morning at 0-dark:thiry the man across from me is reading Variety. There on the top right of the front page is good ol' Movie Prime!

    The article is mainly about movie bots in general, but I was glad to see Prime on the cover.

    I may hit up B&N or Borders tonite to see the actual paper but in the meantime, here is a link to the online article.

    Even bigger robots on studio schedules - Entertainment News, Weekly Film, Media - Variety

    I have not had time to read this yet myself. Hope it is worth it...but what the heck eh.

    ok, what the hell is this

    "Hasbro co-produces the "Transformers" pics, for example, and used the pic to relaunch the popular '80s toyline."

    So hasbro hasnt made any toys since the 80's??? Then what the hell is all over my room?

    Any journalist who uses that much "industry lingo" in an article should be dragged out into the street and bludgeoned with a bust of Noah Webster. I know Variety has been famous for it since the magazine's inception, but still ... it makes the writer sound like a tool.

    But yay for more robots.
