New Spider-Man “Premium” Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figure Colorways by Funko

Metal Mix Spider-Man Premium Marvel Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figure by Funko

If you’re collecting Funko’s awesome new Spider-Man Premium Hikari Sofubi vinyl figures, then you’re in luck! Because the Washington based toy company has unveiled two new Spider-Man Hikari colorways. First up is the “Metal Mix” Spider-Man, which is limited to just 500 pieces. I really like this copper and pewter color scheme Funko has christened the “Metal Mix” colorway for a few of its Hikari figures. It plays off their sculpts very nicely. The second colorway is the “Distressed” Spider-Man, which is limited to 750 pieces. As you can imagine, this figure looks pretty beat up!

Distressed Spider-Man Premium Marvel Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figure by Funko

Hikari, meaning “light”, is a highly collectible line of clear/translucent figures cast in soft Japanese vinyl. Each Amazing Spider-Man 2 Hikari vinyl figure stands 10” tall, includes a hand numbered card to prove authenticity and rarity, and comes packaged in a full color window box perfect for display. These Marvel Hikari colorways are available for purchase now at Entertainment Earth for $79.99 each here.

The Hundreds x Adidas “The Bruder Pack” T-Shirt Collection

The Hundreds x ADIDAS “The Bruder Pack” T-Shirt Collection


The Blot’s been really underwhelmed by the last few collaborations by The Hundreds (Death Row Records, really!?!). So much so I didn’t even blog about them. Thankfully, The Hundreds followed up those stinkers with this super clean and sleek looking The Hundreds x Adidas Collection. While the centerpiece of “The Bruder Pack” are the Stan Smith Vulc sneakers The Hundreds designed, The Blot wants to focus on these awesome black and white The Hundreds x Adidas t-shirts! The Bruder Pack takes its name from the German word for “brother,” and is themed around the partnership and family bond behind The Hundreds brand.

I love these tees for their simplicity, and I think The Hundreds x Adidas Collection mashed-up logos looks freaking awesome! I love how they incorporated Adidas’ iconic old school trefoil logo (now used for the Adidas Originals brand) into The Hundreds’ bomb logo. You can pick up The Hundreds x Adidas The Bruder Pack T-Shirt Collection and so much more at The Hundreds online store and select retailers worldwide. The three tees come in sizes S-XL and retail for between $28-32.

Marvel’s Secret Wars Hobgoblin 12” Jumbo Vintage Action Figure by Gentle Giant

Gentle Giant has announced the second figure in its new Marvel’s Secret Wars Jumbo 12” Action Figure toy line, and it’s the evil Hobgoblin! Based on the character's look in the iconic '84 comic book limited series Secret Wars, Spider-Man’s archenemy was digitally scanned from Mattel’s original Secret Wars action figure from the 1980s and reproduced as a whopping 12” tall collectible.

Roto and injection molded and made of durable plastics, this fully articulated jumbo Marvel’s Secret Wars figure includes a faithfully reproduced lenticular shield just like the classic ‘80s toy. Hobgoblin also comes with his signature glider, which features an impressive 15” wingspan. To further capture the vintage feel, Gentle Giant has packaged this Marvel action figure with a Secret Wars inspired backer card featuring original photos and artwork in a resealable plastic outer clam shell.

The Hobgoblin 12” Jumbo Vintage Marvel’s Secret Wars action figure by Gentle Giant is not expected to be released until December 2015, but it can be pre-ordered now at Entertainment Earth for $119.99 here.

Attack on Titan Pop! Vinyl Figures by Funko - Colossal Titan, Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman & Eren Jaeger Titan Form

This is the kind of Funko Pop! release that really makes The Blot feel out of touch. I’ve never read manga before, and I know next to nothing about the newest global sensation, Attack on Titan. After originally debuting in 2009, the Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hajime Isayama has gone on to huge success! It’s even crossing over with the Marvel universe. The Attack on Titan Pop! Series includes Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman, Eren Jaeger Titan Form and a massive 6” Colossal Titan vinyl figure.

Each Attack on Titan Pop! vinyl figure stands 3.75” (except for the Colossal Titan figure), features one point of articulation and come packaged in a full color displayable window box. While these AoT figures aren’t expected to hit store shelves until May 2015, you can pre-order them now from Entertainment Earth for $9.99 each here. The Colossal Titan 6” Pop! retails for $14.99.

DC Comics New Gods Mother Box Prop Replica

DC Comics New Gods Mother Box Prop Replica

The Blot doesn’t blog much about comic book prop replicas, but this New Gods Mother Box from DC Comics and DC Collectibles is just too freaking awesome to ignore. I mean come on, the Mother Box was created by the king of comics, Jack Kirby! And you know everything The King touch is just plain gold. Plus, The Blot’s a sucker for pretty much anything from Jack Kirby's Fourth World.

For the first time ever we can now own our very own sentient, miniaturized, portable supercomputer and feel like one of the New Gods with this intricately detailed prop replica. Just don't expect it to be able to actually open a boom tube and transport us to New Genesis. The DC Comics Mother Box Prop Replica stands 8.75” tall, and features real working lights and sounds. While this life like prop is not expected to hit store shelves until July 2015, you can pre-order one today from Entertainment Earth for $49.99 here.

Lolgolth Gnazgoroth Vinyl Figure by Skinner

Blank Red Lolgolth Gnazgoroth Vinyl Figure by Skinner

Is it just The Blot or has Skinner just completely taken over the toy game in 2014!?! It feels like every other month the California artist is releasing another epic figure! Meet Lolgolth Gnazgoroth, the head that holds the horror, the illuminated one, he who knows the truth of the parallel realm. Is this figure just flat out bonkers or what? I have no idea how Unbox Industries is able to produce a 12” toy like this with so much mind splitting details.

Blank Black Lolgolth Gnazgoroth Vinyl Figure by Skinner

The long awaited first release in the new Skinnerverse x Unbox vinyl figure collection is now available for pre-order exclusively at the Unbox Industries online store. Each Lolgolth Gnazgoroth is meticulously detailed and painstakingly hand finished. This insane figure is currently available in two limited edition unpainted colorways, red and black. Both versions are a timed release (meaning all pre-orders will be fulfilled) and retail for $125. But be sure to get your order in by December 29th because after that these two colorways will be gone forever.

“Blank Red” Stroll Vinyl Figure by Spanky Stokes

“Blank Red” Stroll Vinyl Figure by Spanky Stokes

After a year of teases and progress shots, Spanky Stokes’ popular mascot Stroll is finally available in beautiful soft Japanese vinyl. The Blot’s been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to get my hands on what I assume is the world’s first toy blog mascot sofubi, and this figure definitely brings the heat! For its very first colorway, John “Spanky” Stokes' Stroll was released in a beautiful unpainted red colorway at last weekend’s “Christmas Kaiju” group art show at Toy Art Gallery.

These awesome 8” vinyl figures feature multiple points of articulation and retail for just $65. I can’t get over how big this adorable monster is! Sadly, the first ever Stroll vinyl figure is already sold out. Here’s hoping the next release is a painted OG Stroll featuring white vinyl with black and grey sprays. Just take my money now!
