Star Wars 40th Anniversary Black Series 6” Action Figures Wave 1

Star Wars 40th Anniversary Black Series 6” Action Figures Wave 1 - Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia & Obi-Wan Kenobi

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the original Star Wars film, and Disney, Lucasfilm and Hasbro have some huge things in store for us. One of the biggest announcements coming out of New York ToyFair 2017 last weekend was the unveiling of a new line of Star Wars 40th Anniversary Black Series 6” action figures commemorating the release of Episode IV: A New Hope in 1977!

Star Wars 40th Anniversary Black Series 6” Action Figures Wave 1 - R2-D2

If you were disappointed in some of the sculpts of the original Star Wars Black Series then you’re going to love these new figures. Many have been resculpted to even more closely resemble the actors they were based on. Even better still, each figure is now going to be packaged on a full color blister card inspired by Kenner’s original line of Star Wars action figures. As collectors have come to expect with Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series, each highly detailed figure is based on a 6” scale, features tons of articulation and includes character specific accessories.

To kick off the new toy line, Star Wars 40th Anniversary Black Series Wave 1 will include Episode IV versions of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi and R2-D2. Collectors can pre-order a case of Wave 1, which includes eight figures in all, now at Entertainment Earth for $164.99 here.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me Soundtrack 2xLP Vinyl Record by Mondo x Sam Smith x Jay Shaw

Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me Soundtrack 2xLP Vinyl Record by Mondo x Sam Smith x Jay Shaw

Mondo has followed up its popular release of the Twin Peaks original score on vinyl with the release of the original motion picture soundtrack for Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me on vinyl!!! As Mondo explains, “Fire Walk With Me is an altogether more brooding affair than the Twin Peaks series soundtrack. Angelo Badalamenti won a Grammy for the title track of this LP and it’s not hard to see why; it’s dangerous, dark and bristling with smoky jazz so thick you can barely breathe. We went back to the master tapes in the Warner Archives and had this recut to fit across two LPs as the score clocks in at 51 minutes. It sounds incredible and punchy, but super nuanced, too.”

Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me Soundtrack 2xLP Vinyl Record by Mondo x Sam Smith x Jay Shaw

The Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2xLP comes housed inside a 425gsm gatefold sleeve housed inside a bespoke black die cut outer jacket with black spot varnish finish, complete with obi strip featuring sleeve notes by film critic Mark Kermode (approved by David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti). The artwork for this release was designed by Sam Smith, while the layout and design was by Jay Shaw. The soundtrack is pressed on two 180g “Cherry Pie” colored vinyl records.

ToyFair 1st Look: Jack Kirby’s Lord of Light ReAction Retro Action Figure by Super7

New York ToyFair 2017 First Look - Jack Kirby’s Lord of Light ReAction Retro Action Figure by Super7

Ever since Super7 took back sole control of the ReAction retro action figure toy line they’ve been announcing more and more epic licenses for it! At New York ToyFair 2017, Super7 has on display prototypes of upcoming ReAction figures for properties such as Robotech, Super Shougun,, The Toxic Avenger and Planet of the Apes. There were also prototypes for new figures for their Aliens and Masters of the Universe. But the S7 ToyFair announcement The Blot is the most excited about is the upcoming Lord of Light ReAction figure!

The Lord of Light ReAction retro action figure is based on the artwork of Jack Kirby, which was created for a failed attempt to produce a Lord of Light feature film. That artwork was later used by the CIA for Operation: Argo, which helped free American embassy workers during the Iranian coup in 1979. What an amazing backstory!?! The upcoming Lord of Light ReAction figure appears to come packaged on a blister card with original Jack Kirby artwork and will be available in Super 2017. Definitely a must get for all the Kirby fans out there!

MC-D2 Star Wars Droid Vinyl Figure by Roman Cortez

Microphone check, one, two, what is this? The Blot is so thrilled I found out about Roman Cortez newest vinyl figure, the Star Wars inspired MC-D2 droid! I seriously love this hip-hop themed release. I know a lot of people have been complaining that bootleggers are just throwing Star Wars astromech droid legs on anything and everything these days, but it’s so exciting (and refreshing) to see a unique take on a kitbashed droid.

Every store deserves an amazing Funko exclusive! In an effort to recognize Funko’s most special accounts and loyal retailers, Funko is introducing a new line of exclusives – the Specialty Series.
