Star Wars Car, A Doomsday Doll: Toys Of Comic-con - Yahoo News

Superhero Bits: Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Avengers 3, Aquaman - /Film

Hot Toys Rocket and Groot Like other toy makers struggling in this digital, video-centric age, the company is trying to remain relevant in the retail world. Core brands like Barbie have seen less of a demand, with a 14 percent drop in sales in the first quarter of this year. Mattel had a net loss for the first three months ending March 31 that totaled $11.2 million. But things will at least seem rosier at Comic-Con, where eager buyers for the toys await (the only other place they will be sold is on the Mattel collector's site). Mattel's exclusives this year run between $20 and $85, but elite toys can fetch much more when they're put up for auction. The crown jewel for Wadleigh and his team this year is a Darth Vader die-cast car, the first official collaboration from Hot Wheels and the "Star Wars" franchise. The car imagine if a Chevrolet Corvette C5 and the villainous Sith lord's helmet had a baby comes in a sleek black box and encased in a replica of Vader's lightsaber, complete with a swooshing sound effect.

Union officials say Walt Disney World has reached a tentative labor agreement with its largest union group that raises starting hourly pay from a little over $8 to $9 this year. The agreement announced Friday raises starting hourly pay to $9.50 next year and $10 in 2016. Union members will vote whether to approve the proposed contract on Aug. 1. The contract covers 21,000 full-time workers at the Florida-based theme park resort, which has around 45,000 full-time and 25,000 part-time employees. Union officials say the contract freezes employee health care costs in 2015.
