Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

This is the marble run: Hape Quadrilla Cyclone.

And here’s how much it costs. Which is to say Amazon will sell this set to you for something between $90-something and $190-something.

Here’s one way to set it up:

The Wall Street Journal approves, anyway.

Here’s the Cyclone set in action:

And here’s a mish-mash of two other sets:

Oh, made in China, natch.

IDK, read the comments section in Amazon for a few minutes and then You Make The Call.

I myself paid on the low end of Amazon’s absurdly wide pricing range, so I’m not complaining…

Oh look, it’s Disney Legend Tyrus Wong:

“The Center for Asian American Media Celebrates The Continued Legacy of Tyrus Wong With Signing of Rediscovered Painting

SAN FRANCISCO, March 4, 2016 – The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM), is thrilled to announce a truly endearing event taking place the day before CAAMFest 2016’s Opening Night presentation of the Bay Area premiere of TYRUS.

Tyrus Wong, the 105-year-old subject of TYRUS and pioneering icon whose art has touched millions through films like REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE and Disney’s BAMBI, will sign an original piece of his artwork that had been unidentified for decades. The painting was rediscovered by CAAM Board Member David Lei at the Chinese United Methodist Church in San Francisco’s Chinatown.

The event, hosted by CAAM, the Asian Art Museum and the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation, will take place on Wednesday, March 9th, at 4:00PM in the Asian Art Museum’s Peterson Room, where San Francisco District 1 Supervisor Eric Mar will present a Tyrus Wong Day proclamation in honor of the artist.

Wong will be joined by his daughter, Kim, and TYRUS director, Pamela Tom. Tom’s award-winning documentary paints a beautifully intimate portrait of Wong, eloquently exploring his childhood arrival at the Angel Island Immigration Station, the evolution of his voice and legacy and the formation of what he views as his greatest achievement, his family.

The painting will be on display at the Asian Art Museum on Thursday, March 10th, for one day only. The public is invited to view the signed piece during regular museum hours and CAAMFest’s Opening Night Gala. Learn more at www.caamfest.com/2016

Kim Wong, Pamela Tom and David Lei will be available for soundbites and photo opportunities. Press are invited to attend, and can RSVP to Larsen Associates at publicity@larsenassc.com as space is limited.
