Yeah, that's not going to work out.

About this shit (again). Found this comment:
I went to the Marvel comics website and Joe Quesada's blog. (Joe Quesada is the Editor in Chief, he writes about interesting things. His blog is here: http://www.marvel.com/blogs/Joe_Quesada/). I commented, asking him if he'd write about the approval process for this figurine.

Two hours later, my comment was deleted.

Do you think Marvel is trying to pretend the whole thing never happened?
Marvel's silencing complaints too. Screencaps, people, screencaps.

  1. Is Joe Q even the right person to write about this? He's editorial, this seems more like a licensing issue. I don't think he has any control over that sort of thing outside of the actual comics.

    I'm all for speaking your mind, but this strikes me as more like telling your local fireman about the guy who keeps breaking into your house.

  2. David -- You've got a point. I know at DC we can bug Levitz.

    Still, you have to register to post. A note directing them to a better spot or a answer comment telling them to talk to another person would be better than just deleting it in this case, given how Sideshow Toys is behaving.

  3. Quesada = Didio / Levitz = Dan Buckley. And yeah, I suspect the statue is something the comics side of the business has little control over; not unlike the movies.

    Contact licensing here or here:

    Marvel Licensing Department

    Also, if you're serious about this, I'd suggest contacting
    Alan Fine, President and Chief Executive Officer of Toy Biz and Publishing Division (same address), and their PR rep Jeff Klein (jeff_klein@dkcnews.com), Executive Vice President, Dan Klores Communications.
