Tars Tarkas "In Stock" and John Carter News
Some brief news bits for your morning. First up Triad Toys' web site is now listing their Tars Tarkas figure in stock http://www.triadtoys.com/Licenses/John+Carter+of+Mars/TARS+TARKAS+M%7CX+FORMAT+FIGURE.html. A friend who purchased it also told me that he received confirmation that it has shipped so those who pre-ordered watch your mailboxes.
Next up the Hufffington Post has a really good article looking at Edgar Rice Burroughs and his influence on current pop culture http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-nevins/how-classic-sci-fi-and-comics-have-defined-hollywood_b_877427.html. Definitely worth a read for fans.
Finally a possible web site has popped up. On a previous post I mentioned that Disney had trademarked certain website addresses. I had just tried http://www.johncarterarrives.com which before usually came up with an error page not found message. Today though I was redirected to http://disney.go.com/johncarter/. The site currently says "Page Not Found" but the fact that the former address led to that one possibly mean that the trailer and something else could be popping up soon.
