The Mega Dunny Haunted House 20” Custom Vinyl Figure by Mikie Graham

The Mega Dunny Haunted House 20” Custom Vinyl Figure by Mikie Graham

After originally debuting at Designer Con 2014, Mikie Graham’s epic Mega Dunny Haunted House custom vinyl figure is finally available for purchase!!! This is without a doubt one of the most ambitious customs The Blot’s seen in a very long time, and Mikie absolutely killed it. This 20” Mega Dunny includes a full set of 18 hand painted 3” Monster Dunny figures and four lighting effects from a custom programmed Arduino board. This wild custom figure took a full year to be completed from concept to completion, and all of Mikie’s hard work really shows.

The Mega Dunny Haunted House 20” Custom Vinyl Figure by Mikie Graham

The Blot seriously loves all the crazy details Mikie included in this piece! For instance, all of the Monster Dunnys have magnets that allow them to easily attach to dozens of bases built throughout the Haunted House. The Mega Dunny Haunted House also comes on an amazingly detailed hand carved antique wooden base, includes a removable clear resin “water” top to its Black Lagoon lake, and even has a real working chain driven mechanism to pull the Frankenstein Dunny’s platform up and through the roof of the Haunted House. There’s even custom made stained glass windows featuring holographic “haunted eyeballs.” Insane, right!?!


The Mega Dunny Haunted House 20” Custom Vinyl Figure is currently available for purchase at the Zombie Monkie online store for $2,500.

“Wasteland Warrior” Berserker Vinyl Figure by Mutant Vinyl Hardcore

“Wasteland Warrior” Berserker Vinyl Figure by Mutant Vinyl Hardcore

The Blot always seems to miss out on covering Mutant Vinyl Hardcore’s amazing releases, because the announcements often come right before MVH’s lotteries open and subsequently close before I have time to blog. But make no mistake about it, The Blot is a huge fan of MVH’s western sofubi. Rich’s super detailed sculpting make all of his figures really come to life. Just look at this week’s release, the “Wasteland Warrior” Berserker. This guy really means business! I for one wouldn’t want to get on his bad side.

The “Wasted Warrior” Berserker returns from the scorched earth in this ‘80s post-apocalyptic themed colorway. If the Wasteland Warrior had theme music, it would be by John Carpenter, and the accompanying film would have a poster which was better than the actual movie. The “Wasted Warrior” Berserker stands over 13” tall, is cast in pale flesh soft Japanese vinyl and features neon red, muted purple, and metallic green and silver sprays. Each figure also includes 2 sets of hands, one to hold the haunted battle axe and one to display your severed head/spiked ball omake.

The Wasted Warrior is a limited edition figure available exclusively through a lottery via the Mutant Vinyl Hardcore online store for $200. The lottery will be open for 24 hours beginning at 12:00am today, Friday, January 30th, and closing at 11:59pm later tonight. Winners will be notified on Saturday, January 31st with payment due within 48hrs of notification.

Alien Screen Print by Tyler Stout

Alien Standard Edition Screen Print by Tyler Stout

Last Wednesday Mondo held a very special 35mm screening of Ridley Scott’s iconic 1979 science-fiction horror film Alien at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz in Austin. Of course it’s not a Mondo event without the release of a matching movie poster, and Mondo went all out with this surprise release! For their Alien screening, Mondo teamed up with the super popular Tyler Stout to release an epic Alien screen print. What I love about this poster is how much its design reminds me of Stout’s early releases. It’s great to see him revisit that stage of his career before he became the screen print star he is today.

Alien Glow in the Dark Variant Screen Print by Tyler Stout

Alien by Tyler Stout is a 24”x36” hand numbered screen print. The Standard Edition is limited to 510 pieces and will retail for $60, while the Glow in the Dark Variant is limited to 235 pieces and will retail for $110. Both prints go on sale at a random time today, Friday, January 30th, at the Mondo online store.

Star Wars Han Solo with Tauntaun Deluxe Black Series 6” Action Figure

Star Wars Han Solo with Tauntaun Deluxe Black Series 6” Action Figure

Hasbro is adding a third deluxe figure (and second “vehicle”) to its popular line of Star Wars Black Series 6” action figures, and it’s a beauty! This Deluxe Black Series release is Hoth Han Solo (from the Empire Strikes Back) with his trusty Tauntaun, which he can actually ride. All that’s missing is for the Tauntaun to feature “gut-busting” action, so we can recreate one of the most infamous scenes from the original Star Wars trilogy. I guess we’ll just have to wait for that bit of functionality until Hasbro decides to release a matching Hoth Luke Skywalker and Tauntaun set.

The Star Wars Han Solo with Tauntaun Deluxe Black Series Action Figure is not expected to hit store shelves until June 2015, but you can pre-order one now from Entertainment Earth for $39.99 here.

Funko’s new imprint Vinyl Sugar has announced its second all new toy line! Following the unveiling of the epic Vinyl Idolz line comes Dorbz!

To kick things off, we know Vinyl Sugar will definitely be releasing Marvel Dorbz of Captain America, Groot, and Ghost Rider and DC Comics Dobz of Batgirl and probably Batman. More information should be hitting the internet soon from New York Toy Fair 2015!

“Detective Comics #776” Batman Screen Print by Brian Ewing

“Detective Comics #776” Batman Screen Print by Brian Ewing

It’s been a long time since there was a print released that the minute The Blot saw it I knew I had to have it! That happened yesterday when Brian Ewing released this killer Batman screen print “Detective Comics #776.” Fans of Ewing’s amazing concert posters and art prints might not know this talented designer is also a published comic book artist. Back in January 2003, DC Comics published Ewing’s first of three comic book covers for the company and boy was it a beauty! That first cover was for Detective Comics issue #776, which featured prominently the world’s greatest detective, Batman. Ewing has decided to revisit that original cover illustration of DC’s The Dark Knight, and reproduced it for this striking “Detective Comics #776” screen print.

DC Comics - Detective Comics #776 Cover Artwork by Brian Ewing

What I found really interesting about “Detective Comics #776”, is that Brian decided to redraw skull in Batman’s magnifying glass because it always bugged him. It’s crazy to think this image was originally created over 12 years ago, but man does it still look as fresh as ever. It’s cool to compare the two skulls and see how Ewing’s style has changed over the years.

“Detective Comics #776” by Brian Ewing is an 18”x24” signed and numbered Batman screen print. Limited to just 75 pieces, this wonderful print is currently available for purchase at the Brian Ewing online store for $50 each.

“Snoopy Valentine” Print by Nicole Gustafsson

“Snoopy Valentine” Standard Edition Giclee Print by Nicole Gustafsson

This Friday Dark Hall Mansion will be releasing its annual Valentine’s Day Peanuts print, and this year’s print is the fun “Snoopy Valentine” by Nicole Gustafsson. The Blot loves Nicole’s ode to Valentine’s Day with her unique take on the Peanuts gang, Valentine's Day, the charm of old school homemade valentines, and of course, love! What’s great about this print is it’s actually based on an original painting by Gustafsson!

“Snoopy Valentine” Variant Giclee Print by Nicole Gustafsson

Nicole explained her inspiration for this piece: “Growing up it seems like there was always aspects of Peanuts that were part of our lives. Watching Peanuts TV specials over the holidays and hanging little ornaments of Snoopy and characters on our Christmas tree, or the time I got a really big valentine with Snoopy holding a heart. So when I was asked to create a piece based on Peanuts, I immediately thought of all these fun times I had with my family and friends.” That fun really shines through on “Snoopy Valentine”!

Snoopy Valentine by Nicole Gustafsson is a 16”x20” numbered giclee print. The Standard Edition has a limited edition run size of 280 pieces and will retail for $65, while the Variant is limited to 50 pieces and will retail for $100. There is also a super rare Canvas Edition limited to just 5 pieces of each colorway and retailing for $225 each. All four prints go on sale this Friday, January 30th, at Dark Hall Mansion's online store at 9:30am PST.

Batman 75th Anniversary Screen Print Series - “Batman: The Silver Age” by Dave Perillo

Geek Art and French Paper Art Club have teamed up with DC Comics to produce a new officially licensed Batman 75th Anniversary Screen Print Series. For this series’ newest print, they’ve commissioned the super talented Dave Perillo to apply his unique vintage and cartoony style to the Silver Age Batman universe, and it is freaking fabulous!!! I can’t believe there is an officially licensed Batman screen print that features Catman and the Cluemaster (two of my favorite Batman villains). “Batman: The Silver Age” is just perfect, which makes me all the more frustrated that it’s already sold out! How in the world did The Blot miss this print’s release!?!

“Batman: The Silver Age” by Dave Perillo is a 12”x36” Batman 75th Anniversary 6 color screen print. Limited to 100 signed and numbered pieces, this officially licensed print was sold exclusively at the French Paper AC online store for €40.

Venom, Ghost Rider & The Vision Marvel Retro Sofubi Collection Vinyl Figures by Medicom

Marvel Retro Sofubi Collection Wave 3 Vinyl Figures by Medicom - Venom, Ghost Rider & The Vision

Medicom is not messing around with its Marvel Retro Sofubi Collection, and The Blot is very happy about it! In less than a year, Medicom has already announced three waves of figures featuring the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe. Wave 3 is the toy line’s most diverse release yet, featuring the popular Spider-Man villain Venom, The Avengers’ resident android Vision, and the supernatural Ghost Rider. There’s really no connection between these three characters, making it a very odd line up of figures. But somehow Medicom makes it work. It helps that all three Marvel heroes are bad ass!

Marvel Retro Sofubi Collection Wave 3 Vinyl Figures by Medicom - Ghost Rider

These Venom, Ghost Rider and The Vision Marvel Retro Sofubi Collection vinyl figures stand 10” tall, features 4 points of articulation, and come packaged in full color window boxes.

“Pattern of Corruption” OBEY Giant Screen Prints by Shepard Fairey & Cleon Peterson

“Pattern of Corruption” Blue & White OBEY Giant Screen Prints by Shepard Fairey & Cleon Peterson

It’s been a while since OBEY Giant released one of Shepard Fairey’s signature pattern screen prints that really blew The Blot away. But man I’m in love with this new collaboration between Shepard and artist Cleon Peterson entitled “Pattern of Corruption”. The print is based on a mural Cleon and Shepard recently collaborated on in Miami’s Wynwood district. Their collab turned out so amazing the two artists decided to make some limited edition screen prints inspired by the mural. 

“Pattern of Corruption” Black & White OBEY Giant Screen Prints by Shepard Fairey & Cleon Peterson

Both Cleon and Shepard deal with the persistent themes of the fragility of society, human savagery, and corruption in their work. As such, the “Pattern of Corruption” has a dichotomy in its hypnotic classical floral pattern with sinister elements woven into it, which caution the viewer to look deeper than an appealing surface presentation.

“Pattern of Corruption” Gold & Black OBEY Giant Screen Prints by Shepard Fairey & Cleon Peterson

“Pattern of Corruption” by Shepard Fairey and Cleon Peterson is an 18”x24” Obey Giant screen print, with each poster signed and numbered by the artists. Each version is limited to just 150 pieces and sold as sets in three unique colorways: Black/White, Gold/Black and Blue/White. “Pattern of Corruption” will go on sale at a random time between 10am to noon PST on Tuesday, January 27th, at the OBEY Giant online store for $120 per set.
