As you all know, The Blot is a HUGE fan of MAD’s Mad*l platform and of Sket One’s art. So of course I was super pumped to learn Sket just released a new series of custom Metro Mad*l vinyl figures! Just look at all those killer details. I especially love that Sket tagged the back of each piece just like it was a real 1 Line metro subway train. Each figure stands 5” tall, includes a small vintage NYC subway token, and comes signed and numbered by the artist. Limited to just 30 pieces, collectors can pre-order this awesome custom now at the Sket One online store for $200 each.

Bwana Spoons’ popular Steven the Bat is back with an all new sculpt! It’s hard to believe it’s been over 10 years since the very first Steven the Bat vinyl figure was produced, which also happened to be Bwana’s first toy. Sculpted and self-produced by Bwana, this new Jungle Boogie Steven the Bat vinyl figure is now ready to travel from its home in Forest Island to your collection!
For its first release, Bwana has put up a Mixed Parts Edition Jungle Boogie Steven the Bat vinyl figure for pre-order at the Gravy Toys online store for $48 each. If Bwana gets under 50 orders, he will keep the Mixed Parts Steven to 2 colors (greeny green and olive green). If he receives over 50 orders then Bwana will add in some Watermelon Swirl parts, and if he receives over 75 orders he will also order some translucent purple with gold glitter flakes parts.
Let the wild rumpus start! This weekend at ToyCon UK 2017, WheresChappell will be releasing the first two colorways of his newest Star Wars inspired figure, Where The Wookiee Things Are!

Each figure features Boba Fett frolicking around in a Wookiee fur costume just like Max in Where The Wild Things Are.
The Where The Wookiee Things Are Boba Fett Resin Figure will be available this weekend in two ToyCon exclusive colorways: Empire Strikes Back Edition and Jango Fett Edition. Each version will be limited to just 5 pieces, with any remaining figures (yeah, like that’s going to happen) going up at the Cracked Hatchet online store after the con. The four WTWTA colorways seen in the photo above (Prototype, ROTJ, Kenner and Holiday) will be released in the near future.

Later today, Bottleneck Gallery will be releasing this epic DC Comics screen print “Year One” by Raid71 (Chris Thornley). What a beautiful tribute to the seminal Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli comic book storyline, Batman: Year One, which formed the modern foundation of the Batman mythos we know today. This strikingly grounded take on Batman and James Gordon’s first year fighting crime in Gotham still holds up as a classic comic book story.
As BNG explained, “Raid utilizes some of the coloring and lighting from the original comic books, and does a great job of evoking the feel of Miller/Mazzucchelli’s story. We’re thrilled with how well Raid executed this print idea.” Batman: Year One by Raid71 is an 18”x24” hand numbered DC Comics screen print. Limited to just 100 pieces, this print will go on sale at 12pm EST today, Tuesday, April 25th, at the Bottleneck Gallery online store for $45.
