the oscars logo

The 91st Annual Academy Awards Show (or The Oscars if you prefer that title) just finished and I’m pleased to share the list of winners with all of you readers. The program was launched by Queen + Adam Lambert and they delivered the bands seminal “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions” from the “News Of The World” album. I had to laugh when I saw a friend comment on his Facebook status that more Rock was represented at the beginning of The Oscars than the sum total of the recent Grammy Awards broadcast. Sadly, he was 100% correct. I posted about the live performance over on PiercingMetal HERE if you didn’t see it. There was no official host for the show and this aspect was poked fun at on a few occasions. Now, the envelope please……and The Oscar goes to….

On Shelves: “Marvel Fan Girl” Fashion Dolls by Madame Alexander

Though I believe I am a little late in sharing news and visuals about these items, when I saw them on a recent visit to the local Toys ‘R Us store, I knew that I had to advise our fashion doll collector friends about them. As you know, I am a HUGE supporter of Comic Book and Toys based on the Pop Culture angles that are discussed on PiercingMetal.com – If you click the preceding italics you will be transported to that section of the website.

The “Marvel Fan Girl” line is perfect for those collectors who not only love high-quality fashion dolls, but also have a deep appreciation for the Marvel Comics Universe of characters. I don’t think that I need to outline the popularity of characters like Black Panther, Black Widow, Captain America, Iron Man and Spider-Gwen as their rep speaks for itself. Take a look.
