The Legion of Doom WWE Sofubi Vinyl Figures by Medicom

The Legion of Doom WWE Sofubi Vinyl Figures by Medicom - Road Warrior Hawk & Road Warrior Animal

Medicom announced it is adding two more WWE superstars to its awesome Sofubi Fighting Series of designer vinyl figures, former world tag team champions and WW Hall of Fame members, the Legion of Doom! The Sofubi Fighting Series pays tribute to Japan’s legendary professional wrestlers by immortalizing them forever as 9.8” tall soft Japanese vinyl figures. It’s really fitting that Medicom has chosen to include Road Warrior Animal and Road Warrior Hawk in this series since the LOD had so much success competing in Japan throughout their tag team career.

The Legion of Doom, Hawk and Animal, will be sold separately for around $80-125 each, and are expected to ship in August 2015. These extremely accurate the Road Warriors figures were sculpted by Noiguramu, cast in soft Japanese vinyl and feature three points of articulation.

“Storm Glitter” Hulk Marvel Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figure by Funko

“Storm Glitter” Hulk Marvel Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figure by Funko

Everyone has their favorite Hulk… green or red, smart or dumb. Personally, I’ve always liked the smart grey Hulk known as Joe Fixit! This sparkly “Storm Glitter” Hulk Hikari vinyl figure reminds me of that classic era of the Hulk written by Peter David. Cast in translucent smoky grey vinyl with glitter and black and blue sprays, Funko’s newest Marvel Hikari Sofubi vinyl figure looks ready to go on a rampage! Thankfully he’s a good guy who likes to protect the Earth and not smash it.

Each “Storm Glitter” Hulk Premium Hikari vinyl figure stands 7.5” tall, includes a hand numbered card to prove authenticity and rarity, and comes packaged in a full color window box perfect for display. Limited to 1,100 pieces, this Marvel Hikari vinyl figure is not expected to hit store shelves until June 2015, but you can pre-order one now at Entertainment Earth for $79.99 here.

I can never get over all the amazing details Tong includes in his designs, and this print is no exception! I will say I think I would like this screen print even more if I’d already seen the film.

First Look: Kidrobot’s The 13 Dunny Series by Brandt Peters (& Kathie Olivas)

First Look: Kidrobot’s The 13 Dunny Series by Brandt Peters (& Kathie Olivas)

Thanks to our friends over at Circus Posterus we now have our very first look at Kidrobot’s newest Dunny artist series, The 13!!! Designed by contemporary toy artist Brandt Peters (with feminine frights designed by his wife Kathie Olivas), “The 13” features thirteen evil Dunny souls providing a history lesson in the macabre based on classic All Hallows’ Eve tropes and vintage horror exploitation cinema icons. The Blot is a huge fan of Brandt and Kathie’s art, and I couldn’t be more excited about this release. Finally a Dunny Series that puts the artist in designer art toy again!

Legend has it that a shady eccentric by the name of Lord Strange opened up the 13th dimension one blood moon, and in so doing filled his demented 13 floor mansion, Infernal Manor, with beasts, creatures and monstrosities of every type. Lord Strange was never seen again…his lair abandoned and sealed from the public since that horrific evening. None brave enough to venture into Infernal Manor has ever returned to tell their tale. Do you dare seek The 13? 

Each figure in “The 13” Dunny Series will stand 3” tall and be sold blind box style. This awesome Artist Series features 13, including two mystery chases, and is expected to hit store shelves in Fall 2015. I can’t wait to find out the ratios on this one! Even better still, if you pre-order a complete case of 20 blind boxes directly from Brandt through the Circus Posterus online store ($225) you will receive a small 5”×7” original sketch by Brandt Peters!

“The Record Store” The Beatles Standard Edition Screen Print by Dave Perillo

Tomorrow Dark Hall Mansion continues its acclaimed officially licensed The Beatles Print Series with “The Record Store” by artist Dave Perillo! This image features a very special moment at everyone’s “neighborhood” record store. It is a quietly meditative piece that catches the Beatles pausing before a record store window, a reflection on all they have accomplished and all that's yet to come. As Dark Hall Mansion explains, “it's as much a meditation on artistry and artistic achievement as it is on fame and identity.” The print is a special one, as it required a number of additional approvals just so Dave could include actual Beatles record covers, tour posters, and television performance imagery.

“The Record Store” The Beatles Metallic Variant Screen Print by Dave Perillo

“The Record Store” by Dave Perillo is a 20”x28” hand numbered 6 color The Beatles screen print.
