The breakout character of Thor: Ragnarok was not Cate Blanchett's Hela, or Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie. It wasn't even Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster. No, it was director Taika Waititi playing the Kronan warrior known as Korg. But given the character was made of perishable rock, he created a major challenge for the visual effects team. And then Waititi didn't do them any favors in the post production phase.
Fans finally got their first glimpse at the new merchandise coming out in promotion of Solo: A Star Wars Story, and now we have an idea of when they'll be available for purchase. A new rumor from JediNews out of New York Toy Fair indicates that we'll be able to get our hands on Solo collectables as part of an event being dubbed Wookiee Weekend, beginning on April 20th.
There are lots of reasons why toy companies won't make elaborate and expensive reactions of scenes or models that collectors plead for, but Hasbro might have just figured out a way to make fans happy. Unveiled at the New York Toy Fair, Hasbro just launched a crowdfunding initiative in the style of Kickstarter for the diehard fans called HasLab.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
