Hot Wheels® A-Team Custom GMC Panel Van

We love it when a plan comes together! The members of the A-Team were the top action adventure heroes of the ‘80s, and their van was one of the reasons why. This updated A-Team Custom GMC Panel Van features “mud” deco added to the wheels, body, and window, and arrives housed in an ammo box-style package. We pity the fool who doesn’t snag this cool ride! Features include Real Riders® wheels and diecast body and chassis.

Syfy Premieres COLLECTION INTERVENTION Tuesday, August 14 at 10PM ET/PT

The six-episode series follows Elyse Luray as she “helps couples, families and individuals whose pop-culture memorabilia collections have become damaging obsessions.”

In Syfy‘s newest reality series, Collection Intervention, premiering Tuesday, August 14 at 10PM (ET/PT), former Head of Special Collections at Christie’s, Elyse Luray helps couples, families and individuals whose pop-culture memorabilia collections – from Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica to Catwoman and Barbie – have become damaging obsessions, creating financial strife and a huge strain on their lives.

In each of the six hour-long episodes, Elyse will create a strategy that helps these collectors curate and showcase their collection by assessing where the true value lies and then allow them to decide what’s worth keeping and what they can sell. These massive collections include dining rooms stuffed with 30,000 comic books, a garage filled to the rafters with Catwoman memorabilia, and an almost uninhabitable house filled with Transformers. For each collector, parting with some of their collection may free up some much needed space in their home, provide a cash windfall to get out of debt, or even just allow a couple to become more focused on their relationship.

In the premiere episode titled “A Disturbance in the Force,” what started out as a single room dedicated to Star Wars has grown to take over the entire Concord, California home of Garet and Consetta. When Elyse quickly realizes the Star Wars collection has intense emotional meaning to Consetta, she fears that Consetta may not be able to part with a single item. If Elyse is going to help this couple take back their house, she’s going to have to use The Force to break through to them.

Also in the episode, disgruntled Los Angeles housewife Lolly calls Elyse to see if she can help her husband Mark let go of some of his extensive Catwoman collection so they can start to pay some bills. When Elyse sees the collection, which has overtaken their garage, she is stunned by the poor manner in which Mark has stored the collectibles he says he loves. Nonetheless, to save their relationship and pay down their debt, Elyse helps Mark identify what in his collection is truly important to him while pushing him to let go of what is not.

Collection Intervention is produced by High Noon Entertainment with executive producers Pam Healey, Jim Berger and Elizabeth Grizzle Voorhees.

Warner Bros. Releases First Photo of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman!

Warner Bros. has released the first pic of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman / Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises. This costume is definitely more practical than the previous costumes worn by Michelle Pfeiffer or Halle Berry. Her costume doesn’t seem to have any type of mask, ears, etc. Oh well, not a really good disguise if you ask me.

Anne’s outfit is more tactical, like the comic book, than the previous Batman movies. She will definitely be wearing the goggles and it’s going to be less sexy than Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman costumes. She’s going to look more like a robber….But fan boys shouldn’t be worried. This costume is going to be form-fitting enough to make Anne look smoking hot….Everything from the looks in her eyes, her head movements, her body–everything is so feline.

This photo below has Catwoman on a motorbike, which is similar to  previous ones used by Batman! They must go to the same dealer.
