The Wizard of OZ Screen Print by DKNG

The Wizard of OZ Screen Print by DKNG

Mondo continues its colorful The Wizard of OZ Screen Print Series today with a beautiful new movie poster by DKNG! What’s really cool about this release is Mondo has produced three different versions of it with each colorway featuring a different colored horse. Diehard OZ fans know that Dorothy was brought into the Emerald City on a carriage drawn by The Horse of a Different Color, making these three variants movie accurate!

As DKNG explained, “When approaching a film as iconic as The Wizard of Oz, we wanted to find a unique focal point beyond the main iconography of the film. The Horse of a Different Color occupies just a brief scene, but proved to be a great subject for a print series that includes the three different colors - red, purple, and yellow - that the horse takes on in the film. Each print shares three ink colors with the fourth screen customized to provide the color change for each variant.”

“The Wizard of OZ” by DKNG is an 18”x24” hand numbered screen print. Each Horse of a Different Color Variant (Purple, Red and Yellow) is limited to just 175 pieces and will retail for $40. All three prints can be purchased at the Mondo online store today, Tuesday, April 21st, at a random time.

Fantastic Four Final Teaser Movie Poster & First Full Length Trailer

Fantastic Four Final Teaser Theatrical One Sheet Movie Poster

This past weekend FOX gave the world its first full look at the new Fantastic Four with a final reveal teaser theatrical one sheet movie poster and the movie's first full length trailer. Unfortunately, both were really more of the same. The film looks like an amazing sci-fi film in the vein of Interstellar, but it’s far from your typical comic book movie. That’s obviously intentional on FOX’s part, and obviously they feel there’s a big market for that. Why else turn your back on the billions grossing genre that’s popular across the globe?



I will say this, I love Michael B. Jordan’s work and the new action scenes where the FF show off their powers look really cool. But will the general public be able to get past the hardcore sci-fi look of the film? My guess is no. Which is unfortunate, because Marvel’s first family really could use some love. It’s hard to believe this film will hit theaters this summer because there is truly no buzz (at least no good buzz) surrounding the FF.

Fantastic Four’s world premiere is scheduled for August 7, 2015.

Albino Can of Worms Vinyl Figure by Andrew Bell

Albino Can of Worms Vinyl Figure by Andrew Bell

The final colorway of Andrew Bell’s wacky Can of Worms vinyl figure has been released by BIC Plastics at the group-buy site Massdrop. A really odd decision if you ask The Blot. I really don’t understand the concept, and it’s unclear where the figure will be available after this offering ends in a day or two. It’s a shame BIC Plastics went this route for the figure’s final release. The white Albino Edition Can of Worms features 3 articulated heads and 3 articulated tails, can be displayed with or without its can accessory, and measures 8.5”x6”x4.5”.

Packaged in a full color window box, the Albino Can of Worms vinyl figure by Andrew Bell is limited to just 100 pieces and will retail for between $59.99-49.99 at Massdrop (sorry, I don’t get it either).

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice IMAX Teaser Movie Posters & Teaser Trailer

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice IMAX Teaser Theatrical One Sheet Movie Poster - Batman

Over the weekend Zach Snyder and Warner Bros were forced to release early their first teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice after a blurry, subtitled copy was leaked online. Snyder then went on release two new Batman v Superman IMAX theatrical one sheet teaser movie posters. Now these posters look awesome! If only The Blot could get behind the film and its storyline. This trailer just does nothing for me.



Ok, to be honest The Blot loves the fact that we’re getting a live action film featuring Batman and Superman. Plus, both characters do look great! That being said, the film itself sounds terrible. I’m as big a fan of DC Comics' The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson, but that story only works with 50+ years of history between the characters. How will that story work with two characters who are just meeting for the first time? And then after wanting to kill each other right off the bat go and form the Justice League? It all just sounds so implausible.

“Transparent” The Veteran Resin Figure by HealeyMade

“Transparent” The Veteran Resin Figure by HealeyMade

Over the weekend, HealeyMade dropped a freaking beautiful crystal clear edition of his bootleg resin figure The Veteran, which combines the head of the Tin Woodsman from The Wizard of Oz with what appears to be a body from an A-Team action figure. This unpainted, clear colorway stands 7.5” tall and features articulated arms. Just look at the details in this hand cast resin figure. HealeyMade kills it once again!

“Transparent” The Veteran Resin Figure by HealeyMade

The “Transparent” Edition The Veteran retails for just $45 and is a timed release, with the figure’s run size set by the number of orders placed at the HealeyMade online store. But you’d better act fast as the opportunity to buy one of these figures ends this morning (Monday, April 20th). And let me just say, a 7.5” figure for just $45 is a steal!

Unmasked Darth Vader Pop! Star Wars Vinyl Figure by Funko

Funko’s new Unmasked Darth Vader Pop! Star Wars vinyl figure made its world debut this week at Star Wars Celebration 2015! I’m not sure how, but Funko was able to even make Anakin’s charred grey head look cute. While I prefer my Dark Lord of the Sith helmeted (who needs to look at all that burned skin), but I’m sure all Star Wars and Pop! completists will want to add this unmasked variant to their toy collections.

DC Comics “New 52” Blind Box Mini Figure Series by Kidrobot

After a lengthy delay, Kidrobot’s much anticipated DC Comics “New 52” Blind Box Mini Figure Series has finally hit store shelves! For this series, Kidrobot has taken the heroes and villains of the DC Universe and put their unique spin on their modern day looks. What The Blot loves most of all about this series is it’s not just another Batman centric toy line. And even though it doesn’t include Booster Gold, Kidrobot did an amazing job picking a wide range of figures from DC’s original “New 52” soft reboot. I especially love how many characters they included from the Dark/Vertigo corner of the DCU!

DC Comics “New 52” Blind Box Mini Figure Series by Kidrobot - Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Joker & Harley Quinn

The DC Comics “New 52” Mini Figure Blind Box Series by Kidrobot includes Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Blue Beetle, Red Hood, Animal Man, Swamp Thing, and Deadman, and villains The Joker and Harley Quinn. The only shocking part of this awesome series is how few villains were included! But let’s be honesty, you’ve got to love the diversity of this toy line. And any designer toy line that includes Cyborg, Blue Beetle, Animal Man and Swamp Thing gets an A+ from The Blot.

DC Comics “New 52” Blind Box Mini Figure Series by Kidrobot - The Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg, Black Canary & Green Arrow

The DC Universe Mini Figure Series includes 15 figures in all, and I have not heard any mention of variants or chase figures included in this blind box series. This awesome DC Comics series should be in stores everywhere now, but you can definitely order them online from Entertainment Earth here. A full case of 20 blind boxes can be purchased for $229.99 here or just 4 blind boxes can be purchased for $39.99 here.
