The Sydney Doll That Never Was

Chances are you've never seen this. This is a prototype for a 12 inch Sydney Bristow doll that was shown at Toy Fair in early 2003. The doll was never released due to poor sales of the 7 inch Alias figures they did release. Mirage soon folded and Stevenson eventually took over the Alias line. As far as we can tell, finding one of these prototypes is harder than finding a Rambaldi artifact. However, if anyone does have one, EMAIL US. You can click on the pictures to see larger versions.

J.J.'s "Trek" the Biggest Ever

J.J.'s reboot of "Star Trek" has officially ended its theatrical run as the most successful film in the series. With a gross of $385 million worldwide, it surpassed the earnings of all other "Trek" movies, even when the numbers are adjusted for inflation. The movie hits DVD in November.

Another Spy Drama for J.J.

NBC has won a bidding war among several networks for a pilot from J.J. Abrams' new projet: a drama about a husband and wife spy team. It will be titled "The Vaughns." OK, I'm kidding about the title. Even if it doesn't have the husband and wife spy team we were hoping for, I'll still give it a try. J.J. apparently wrote the pilot with Josh Reims. No word yet on production or an airdate.
