Update: After what's been quite a while, it's great to have new pictures of Jake out and about. Jake and Reese were on Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice Beach on Sunday,walking back from Intelligentsia where they purchased Red Stuff. A worrying development is the new hat. Thanks IHJ! You can see many more there.
We have a shopping list for May 2010 - time to make room for a lot more than just lego ostriches and camels. McFarlane Toys have announced a new range of Prince of Persia toys that will include figures based on the 'exact likeness' of Jake Gyllenhaal. The 'toy line allows fans of all ages to bring home all the excitement and adventure of the live-action movie with a range of movie figures, battle horses, play sets, and even a collectible movie replica weapon all hitting retailers nationwide in conjunction with the movie’s release in May 2010.'
We will have fully articulated deluxe (6 inch) and standard (4 inch) action figures of Warrior Dastan and Desert Dastan. Then there's the elaborate battle horse set including a 4 inch articulated Dastan. Not forgetting the Alamut Gate play set with another Mini Jake who will have to dodge spear pits and other devious traps and contraptions. Finally, you can get an exact replica of the 10 inch Dagger of Time. No word yet on whether we can expect life-size and articulated replicas of Jake Gyllenhaal himself but it's a possibility - make some space, especially if you'll have more than one.
Martha's Vineyard Roadtrip Part 2
Jake once revealed that his favourite place on earth was Gay Head and its cliffs, on the end of Martha's Vineyard. I can now see why.
Back in Boston, having been driven off the island by tropical storm Danny, BBMISwear and I met up with a very special friend.
Includes pictures from IHJ, WDW and Ted and BBMISwear. I owe huge thanks to BBMISwear for providing me with very fun memories - they will be treasured!
