[PRESS] Now black and white master, Jon-Paul Kaiser brings the legendary warrior to life in Qee form with his newest custom. Using the 2.5" DIY Pigee Qee figure, Jon-Paul has once again captured the full essence of this brute. The Gamorrean Guard Qee is an original piece - but fans can rejoice that Toy2R is releasing different works by JPK. From Series 6, the Great Khan 2.5" Kaiju Toyer Qee and dropping later this month, the new 5" Mini Qee Samurai Pumpkin. Future releases coming out before the holidays include JPK's 8" Artist Qee - the Zombie Pirate and just recently announced - a new 2.5" Qee in next year's Designer Collection Series Seven: PURE.

After hearing about this a few months ago, I had neglected to post about it, but after watching the above video I figured why not. Chris Gore, TV personality on G4, had the opportunity to interview the man, the legend, Stan Lee at this years Dragon*Con in Atlanta and during this interview Stan briefly touches on the issue (around the 1:24 mark) where Super7 sued Archie Comics and Stan Lee as they were going to launch a new series entitled Stan Lee's "Super Seven"... a pretty lame new idea that pins Stan Lee as one of the characters in this new series that befriends 7 superheros to help them resume their lives on earth. So from what I can tell, and from what Stan says in the above video, it appears that this "little toy company" :-) Super7 won the lawsuit as they don't have a specific name for the series yet. I guess congrats are in order because I can see how if the comic did go though with that name there would most definitely be a conflict of interest as the guys over at Super7 have poured their lives/money into that trademark.
From Abe's site: Globulon was designed by Abe Lincoln Jr. (http://www.girlsbike.com), sculpted by veteran sculptor and toy collector, Mark Mascot, and cast by Tony Titanium of Titanium Toys (titaniumtoyz.blogspot.com), and of course inspired by Hedorah, the Smog Monster (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedorah).
