Skull Leader Custom Dunny Vinyl Figure by Huck Gee

Skull Leader Custom Dunny Vinyl Figure by Huck Gee

Inspired by Robotech and popular character Roy Fokker (aka Skull Leader), Huck Gee has taken Kidrobot’s Dunny to the next level with this Macross inspired Skull Leader Custom 8” Dunny. Originally designed to be included in KR’s Art of War 3” Series, the figure proved too expensive to produce and was scrapped from the series. As it turns out, Beardie McBeardsalot was actually a last minute substitution for Skull Leader in the Art of War Series. That probably turned out to be a good thing since Huck decided to turn that intricate design into the amazing custom figure seen here!

Skull Leader Custom Dunny Vinyl Figure by Huck Gee

The Skull Leader Custom Dunny will be Huck’s final release of 2014 and goes on sale this Friday, October 31st (Halloween), at 11am PDT via the Huck Gee online store for just $450. The Skull Leader will be available for 24 hours only, with the figure’s limited edition run size set by the number of orders placed in that timeframe. Each figure comes signed, have unique dual leg joints, swivels at the waist, and includes all accessories shown here.

Chewbacca Star Wars Vintage Sofubi Vinyl Figure by Medicom

Chewbacca Star Wars Vintage Sofubi Vinyl Figure by Medicom

Medicom announced the sixth figure in its popular line of Star Wars Vintage Sofubi vinyl figures, and it’s everyone’s favorite Wookiee and co-pilot of the Millennium Falcon, Chewbacca! The Blot’s been loving this line so far, but man does this figure look terrible. By increasing the platform’s height and adding waste articulation made the vinyl figure looks really un-proportional. And I hate how Chewie’s leg joints look.

Scuplted by Frenzy, the Chewbacca Star Wars Vintage Sofubi figure is cast in soft Japanese vinyl, stands 10” tall, and feature 5 points of articulation. This vinyl figure is scheduled to go on sale in February 2015 and will retail for around $80-100 each. Unfortunately, this awesome limited edition collectible is only available in Japan.

The Flash “Barry” Print by Tracy Tubera

The Flash “Barry” Print by Tracy Tubera

At the beginning of 2013, Tracy Tubera attempted the “Sketch A Day” challenge, which he called #TTDOODLES. While Tubera didn’t complete the challenge, he did create a ton of amazing super hero sketches in his signature style! You can see many of those original sketches here. Thankfully Tracy realized how awesome those sketches were, and he’s decided to vectorize some of the designs and sell them as prints. First up is “Barry,” featuring Barry Allen (aka DC Comics’ The Flash) in his New 52 costume! What better way to kick off this new series of prints than with the star of The CW’s newest hit television show!?!

“Barry” by Tracy Tubera is an 8.5”x11” The Flash print on archival watercolor paper. Each print comes signed, numbered and hand embossed, and is limited to just 50 pieces. Pre-order one today at the Tracy Tubera online store for just $25!

Marvel's Black Panther

The huge news out of yesterday’s Marvel Cinematic Universe event at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood didn’t just stop with the unveiling of the films comprising Phase 3 of the MCU. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige also announced the casting of Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa aka Marvel’s Black Panther! Not only with Boseman’s Black Panther be starring in his own live action film, but he’ll also play a prominent role in Captain America: Civil War (where the long time Avengers member will make his MCU debut).

Marvel Announces Phase 3 of its Cinematic Universe!

The Avengers: Infinity War

Yesterday was a huge day in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At a special event at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige unveiled their plans for Phase 3 of the MCU and it is insane! Nine films over three and a half years, including The Avengers; Infinity War, Captain America 3: Civil War, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and Thor 3: Ragnarok. But what really has Marvel fans excited is all the new characters making their MCU debut, like Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange and the Inhumans.

Captain America: Civil War

Guardians of the Galaxy 2

There have been rumors for years of Black Panther and Captain Marvel films, but The Blot had honestly given up hope. It’s pretty crazy to think of Captain Marvel as the very first Marvel super heroine to have her own movie, but as her status in the comic book universe has continued to rise over the past 10-15 it makes a lot of sense. In the world of the Avengers, the central female characters have always been Wasp, the Scarlet Witch, Black Widow and Captain Marvel, and it looks like all four will now been heavily featured in Marvel films year.


Black Panther

Captain Marvel

Doctor Strange

Don't even get me started on the two part Avengers: Infinity War!!! All three phases of the MCU have been leading to this showdown with Thanos, and I expect every Marvel character who has appeared in a movie to date to show up for this one. It's going to be epic! So now that the title logos and release dates have been unveiled for the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3 what do you all think!?!

Thor: Ragnarok

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.
