Constantine Final Television Poster

Constantine Final One Sheet Television Poster

Tonight’s the night! DC ComicsConstantine television series finally debuts on NBC, and we can officially wipe all memory of Keanu Reeves’ terrible Constantine film from our collective consciousness. Based on the popular Vertigo series Hellblazer, the show will star Matt Ryan as the occult sorcerer antihero John Constantine. How in the world Hellblazer got a second chance at a live action adaptation after the Keanu abomination is a true miracle! But The Blot learned long ago not to look a gift horse in the mouth. Ryan looks spot on as Constantine, but we won’t know for sure until the pilot officially airs. I will definitely be tuning in later tonight!

Constantine airs Fridays on NBC at 10/9c.

“Lil Mikey” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vinyl Figure by Mike Mitchell

“Lil Mikey” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vinyl Figure by Mike Mitchell

Last July at San Diego Comic Con 2014 Mondo gave the world its first look Mike Mitchell’s “Lil Mikey” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vinyl figure. Fans worldwide have been talking about this officially licensed designer art toy ever since, and just yesterday it went up for pre-sale at the Mondo online store! Based on Mitchell’s Michaelangelo TMNT print from his popular “Like Us” series, this 9” premium collectible vinyl figure looks spot on to Mike’s original illustration. And yes, before you even ask, The Blot will totally be buying one of these! It helps that Mikey has always been my favorite Ninja Turtle.

Mike Mitchell, explaining the significance of this release, stated “If I had $5 when I was a kid, it was going to be spent on a ninja turtle figure. So much of my childhood was defined by TMNT, I watched every episode, I had the toys, the shirts, the games, the comics. I wish I could say "Lil Mikey" was a dream come true, but I never could have fathomed this happening.” The Lil Mikey vinyl figure is now available for pre-order at the Mondo online store for $105 (which includes free worldwide shipping). The figure is scheduled to ship in Q1 2015.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Teaser Trailer & Movie Poster

Avengers: Age of Ultron Teaser Theatrical One Sheet Movie Poster

It’s hard to believe we have to wait until May 2015 for our next Marvel live action movie. I thought they were going to start having films year round and not just during the ever expanding summer blockbuster window of May through August? Even though we’re still 7 months away until the world premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron, yesterday Marvel dropped two bombs on us, the film’s first teaser trailer and one sheet movie poster! While there really isn’t much to the teaser poster, the trailer is chock full of spoilers and first looks. The Blot needs to watch it a few more times before dissecting each and every frame, so before I do that go ahead and watch it yourself (at least 10 times). Then let’s reconvene and start hypothesizing The Avengers 2’s storyline.


Avengers: Age of Ultron will premiere in theaters everywhere May 2015.

New Masters of the Universe Skeletor Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figure Colorways by Funko

“Metallic” Skeletor Masters of the Universe Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figure by Funko

While The Blot really digs Funko’s Skeletor Hikari vinyl figure, I have to wonder what the market is for all these colorways. It’s not like Masters of the Universe toys and comics are flying off the shelves. MOTU has a pretty mature fan base and for a variety of reasons Mattel’s toy line is coming to an end this year. That being said, I really like these new Skeletor Hikari editions, which includes the monotone “Grey Skull” (LE 1,000), the classic “Metallic” (LE 2,000) and The Blot’s personal favorite “Havoc” (LE 2,000), which features a silver glitter face and a sick white fade.

Each Skeletor Hikari vinyl figure stands 5” tall, comes with a hand numbered card to prove authenticity and rarity, and is packaged in a full color window box perfect for display. While these figures are currently sold out for pre-sale, keep your eyes peeled to Entertainment Earth to see if more become available for $49.99 each here.
