Hines Ward Action Figure from The Dark Knight Rises

Perhaps you’ve noticed that scene in The Dark Knight Rises trailer where Pittsburgh Steeler’s great, Hines Ward, runs through a football field as it collapses into itself, dressed as a member of the fictitious Gotham Rogues. The scene from the movie was filmed at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh last summer. In October, McFarlane Toys will release a special edition Hines Ward “Gotham Rogues” figure to commemorate this instance where a real-life athlete plays himself in the comic world of Batman. The figure is clad in the black-and-yellow Rogues garb from the movie, and even sports Ward’s real-life tattoo on his right arm.

If you’ve visited our studio, you’ve seen our collection of McFarlane sports figurines, and we can’t wait to add this one to the mix. Pre-order yours now at BigBadToyStore.com.

Check out a full view of the final sculpt after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Introducing: Eden Weingart

June 28th, 2011 by Larry

We’d like to introduce our intern for the summer, Eden Weingart. Unlike most of our recent applicants, she was able to successfully navigate our extensive internship application. Although some of her sports-related answers weren’t exactly what we were looking for (she’s a Yankee fan), her talents outweighed our fanatical bias.

She studies Communication Design at Carnegie Mellon University, is a recent recipient of the Design Merit Award on campus, and is the PR director of the on-campus radio station WRCT. She’ll be our resident indie-rocker for the summer, learning about web design, and helping us devise a smarter inventory system for our back stock of We Are the Process items. Also, you may have noticed some of our recent music reviews were written by her. Wish her well, and leave her a nice comment!
