Munky King presents the Black in White Vinyl Figure by Luke Chueh

After years of prototypes and teases, Munky King is finally brining Luke Chueh’s highly anticipated Black in White vinyl figure to San Diego Comic-Con 2010! Based on the original painting of the same name, Black in White is an 8” vinyl figure sculpted by Dave Pressler dressed in a furry bunny suit.

2 years in the making, Luke Chueh’s Black in White figure comes with an extra fur head that you can swap out with the bare one and a really sharp knife. This awesome looking figure will make its debut at SDCC 2010, with any remaining Black in White figures made available online after the Con.

Justice League of America presents Starro the Conqueror Set & SDCC 2010 Exclusive Starro Spores Bonus Pack

This special set from Mattel commemorates the 75th Anniversary of DC Comics. The Starro pack re-creates one of the most famous DC covers of all time, the cover of Brave and the Bold Issue #28, which just so happens to be the first appearance of the Justice League and Starro the Conqueror.

Justice League of America presents Starro the Conqueror Set featuring the Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern, the Flash, Wonder Woman & Aquaman
The Justice League of America presents Starro the Conqueror Set includes all five JLA members featured on the cover (Martian Manhunter, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern & Aquaman) as highly articulated action figures in the same scale as the DC Universe Infinite Heroes toy line, and a giant, bendy Starro the Conqueror. What’s even cooler is the packaging for this set features lights and sounds with the voice of Kevin Conroy, TV's animated Batman, describing the characters and events seen on the cover. This set will go on sale after San Diego Comic-Con at MattyCollector.com for $50.

As an added bonus for those of you attending SDCC 2010, Mattel will be including a poly bag of four Starro Spores as a free gift with the purchase of the Justice League of America presents Starro the Conqueror Set (while supplies last). What’s weird about these Comic-Con exclusive Starro Spores is that they are compatible with Mattel’s line of 6" DC Universe Classics action figures and not the 3 3/4" DC Universe Infinite Heroes action figures included in the Starro Set. Anyone else think it is bizarre Mattel didn't make the Spores fit the figures they come with!?!

SDCC 2010 Exclusive MOTU Orko Action Figure

Mattel will be releasing two versions of its Masters of the Universe Classics Orko action figure, a San Diego Comic-Con 2010 Exclusive version with color-change feature and a standard version without the color-change feature. What’s really weird about this release is both versions come with a bonus fully articulated Prince Adam figure! This has to be considered one of the weirdest “accessories” ever produced, but at least this way collectors will end up getting 2 action figures for the price of one!

San Diego Comic-Con 2010 Exclusive Masters of the Universe Orko with Color Change Feature and Standard Version Orko without Color Change Feature Action Figures
Orko includes a magic wand, stand, magic book and Prince Adam action figure. Prince Adam comes complete with both angry and smirk heads, a purple Power Sword, and half of a purple Power Sword. Doesn’t that sound like a ton of stuff all for just $25? The SDCC Exclusive Orko also changes color in warm water. Everything except his face and the "O" on his chest changes to clear once Orko takes a bath. His magic book also has a color-change sticker that reveals the SDCC logo.

San Diego Comic-Con 2010 Exclusive Masters of the Universe Orko Action Figure with Prince Adam Action Figure
After Comic-Con, a standard version of Orko without color-change features will go on sale at MattyCollector.com and will retail for $25 as well. This version of the figure will be identical to the one described above, except it does not have color-change features.

Mystery Chase James “Rhodey” Rhodes in the Iron Man Mark II Armor CosBaby by Hot Toys

While playing around on eBay this past weekend The Blot finally caught a glimpse of the Iron Man 2 CosBaby Series mystery chase figure! The secret is out, and it’s a James “Rhodey” Rhodes in the Iron Man Mark II Armor with a flippable mask. I honestly had no idea who Hot Toys was going to choose for the Iron Man 2 mystery chase, and I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised.

Disney x Medicom Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket Vinyl Figures by Kaws

According to Highsnobiety.com, there is a new Kaws figure in the works and it features two of Disney’s more popular characters, Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket! Produced by Medicom, these vinyl figures of the wooden puppet who would become a real boy and his insect conscience look amazing! And while some might not like the Kaws-ification of such iconic figures, I kind of like the added details of Kaws’ signature skull head and crosses.

Disney x Medicom Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket Vinyl Figures by Kaws
According to the Highsnobiety.com article, “We get a first look at the Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket toys by American artist Kaws. The two toys were shown as part of a show book; as part of the Kaws museum exhibition, which started today at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. At this time it is not clear if this toy is being released but it does show a listing of 2010 and having been produced by Medicom Toy Co. / Disney. It is also listed as from the Collection of Artist.” (link)

LTD Tee - Pink Cranium T-Shirt & Art Print by Iban Brizuela

For LTD Tee’s fifth release the clothing company turned in house for inspiration. LTD Tee’s intern Iban Brizuela, who came up with the “Pink Cranium” design, finds inspiration from people deported from reality.

So apparently there is an uber-rare fourth The Tick Indie Spotlight action figure from Shocker Toys that not many fans know about.

I’m not sure if there is any type of significance to this clear blue colorway, but the transparent Tick action figure does look pretty cool.

Disney x Medicom Alice in Wonderland 100% Kubrick & Be@rbrick Set 2

The Blot has no idea why Medicom and Disney have decided to release a second Alice in Wonderland 100% Kubrick & Be@rbrick set, especially since it won’t be released until December 2010 (well after the release of the film on DVD/Bluray). Either way, I’m sure Disney, AiW and Johnny Depp fans will all be very happy to be able to add these two figures to their collections.

Disney x Medicom Alice in Wonderland 100% Kubrick & Be@rbrick Set 2 - Mad Hatter in Blue Jacket Kubrick & White Rabbit Be@rbrick

Alice in Wonderland Screen Print by Olly Moss

Based on Lewis Carroll's insanely popular book comes this awesome Alice in Wonderland screen print by Olly Moss! The Blot’s been anxiously awaiting the release of this print ever since Moss first released a teaser image of the design a few weeks ago. Olly really hit this one out of the park on this one. I just love the print’s simplistic, retro book cover look, and I think the mini-Alice at the bottom of the print was a smart addition (kind of giving the print a Disney vibe to it). This is definitely one of those prints that could be hung in anyone’s house.

Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland Screen Print by Olly Moss
Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland print by Olly Moss is a two color 16"x24" screen print. Each print comes signed and numbered by the artist and has a relatively small run size of just 192 prints. This AiW print will be released later today, Friday, June 25th, at PostersandToys.net at 2pm CST.

Tomenosuke Exclusive Ichigo Mama Panya with Berry Shroom by Erick Scarecrow
Ichigo Mama Panya’s Story: Ichigo Mama-Panya is a baker that makes colorful Shiitake Shroom cakes for a living. One day she found a large strawberry on the sidewalk that fell from a tree in front of a wizard's home. She picked it up and hurried back to her bakery to decorate her famous Berry Shroom cake with it.

The cake came alive and told her that what she did was unclean and dirty. Ichigo slapped the ungrateful cake and was about to discard him until he begged her not to. Ichigo thought long and hard about the Berry Shroom's fate until she decided that she could use an extra hand in her bakery.

The Berry Shroom was relieved and got to work immediately. They bonded and shared many secrets. When the Berry Shroom knocked over a jar of flour he sneezed repeatedly. This made his colors change. Ichigo was in shock when she realized her outfit colors changed as well.

Memphis Beat starring Jason Lee Premieres Tonight on TNT

To be honest, The Blot has pretty low expectations for TNT’s newest hour long drama Memphis Beat. But while the reviews have only been so-so, I have to give Memphis Beat a shot because it stars one of my favorite actors, Jason Lee. I’ve loved him ever since the former skateboarder first started popping up in director Kevin Smith’s movies, and his NBC comedy My Name Is Earl was one of my favorite comedies of the ‘00s.

Memphis Beat Season 1 One Sheet Television Poster
Memphis Beat centers on Dwight Hendricks (Jason Lee), a quirky Memphis police detective with an intimate connection to the city, a passion for blues music and a close relationship with his mother. He is "the keeper of Memphis," a Southern gentleman who is protective of his fellow citizens, reverential of the city's history and deeply rooted in its blues music scene. Despite his impeccable instincts as a detective, Dwight's loose, relaxed style of police work rubs his demanding new boss, Lt. Tanya Rice (Alfre Woodard), the wrong way. But Dwight may eventually win her over to a Memphis state of mind, especially when he takes the stage at his favorite hangout to perform a legendary Elvis song or two.

Memphis Beat airs Tuesday nights at 10/9c on TNT, and stars Jason Lee, Alfre Woodard, DJ Qualls, Celia Weston, Sam Hennings, Leonard Earl Howze and Abraham Benrubi.

Draw Limited T-Shirts

The Blot recently found out about a really cool art project entitled Draw Limited. Draw in a new company that revolves around simple doodles and drawings, proving there's artistic merit in everyone’s art. What’s really cool about Draw is they’ve taken the traditional user submitted design model (utilized by companies such as Threadless and TeeFury) and flipped it on its head. You see, unlike those other companies Draw actually uses EVERY drawing it gets! How cool is that!?!

Draw Limited logo
To give you an idea how Draw works, the company posts a theme or idea on its website, and users submit their drawings of that theme/idea. The only catch is every aspect of the design has to be hand drawn, i.e. nothing is done on a computer. Draw then takes the designs it receives and makes t-shirts, posters, prints and buttons of the drawings. If Draw doesn’t use the art on a tee, they’ll use it in another medium, but they really do use everything submitted. So, if you’ve always wanted to see your drawings or ideas printed on a t-shirt or button, start visiting www.drawlimited.com and submit a drawing today!

Cool shirts like the ones seen above can be purchased from the Draw Limited online store for $24 each.

The newest colorway of L’amour Supreme’s Mongolion is almost here, and it looks beautiful. Who could turn down a figure whose base is clear red vinyl!?! This latest colorway features the traditional Chinese colors of red, teal and gold, which is based on the similar color pattern of the previously released Burning Anger Stomp vinyl figure.

The Burning Anger Mongolion will retail for around $60-70 and goes on sale June 26th at the Super7, Super Florida, and Mishka NYC.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World International Trailer

If you thought the last Scott Pilgrim vs. The World movie trailer was awesome, then you’re really going to be blown away by the film’s international trailer! It takes everything fans love about the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels and makes it come to life. I seriously can’t believe how realistic they make even the craziest of scenes from the Scott Pilgrim books.



Scott Pilgrim vs. The World might be one of the truest adaptations of a comic book I’ve ever seen, and puts other video game based movies to shame. But don’t take my word for it; check out the SPvsTW international trailer above!

The Scott Pilgrim live action movie adaptation, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, premieres on August 13, 2010, while Scott Pilgrim Volume 6, Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour, by Bryan Lee O’Malley hits book shelves on July 20, 2010.

The Smurfs Movie First Look and Teaser Trailer

Fans reaction to the upcoming “live action” The Smurfs movie has been all over the map, but I think it’s safe to say reaction has definitely skewed towards the negative. I’m still holding out hope The Smurfs will be a cute kids movie, but I’ve got a feeling it’ll include some inappropriate crass moments totally disgracing the legacy of Peyo’s greatest creations.

First Look: The Smurfs Movie in 3D
In the photo above you can see the world’s first every look at the Smurfs in all their CGI glory. Papa Smurf and his two generic Smurf companions actually looks pretty good, but I’ll need to see more before making any final judgments. You can see a little more of the three Smurfs above in the film’s first teaser trailer below. It’s cute, but nothing special.



The Smurfs in 3D is scheduled to debut in theaters sometime during the summer of 2011.

Los Angeles Lakers Win the 2010 NBA Championship For Back to Back Titles

2010 NBA Champion LA Lakers - Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers Celebrating Their Second Straight NBA Championship
Wow, as a lifelong fan of the Los Angeles Lakers The Blot can honestly say I’m as excited for this NBA Championship, the franchise’s sixteenth, as I was the first time I watched the Lakers win one in the ‘80s. It’s definitely a feeling that never gets old, and this one was especially sweet considering the team’s collapse against the Boston Celtics in the 2008 NBA Finals.

2010 NBA Champion LA Lakers - Kobe Bryant Celebrating Winning the NBA Championship
It’s hard to believe the Lakers have now been to the Finals three straight years and are coming off back-to-back championships. Before Derek Fisher’s return and Pau Gasol’s arrival in 2008, the team was in a freefall and Kobe’s departure was all but certain. Now the years with Smush Parker and Kwame Brown are just a distant memory!

The 2010 NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers
There are a number of reasons this championship is especially sweet, and at the top of that list is because it came against the Lakers’ hated rivals, the Celtics, and was the perfect revenge for 2008’s loss. On top of that, Kobe now has 5 titles (and 2 NBA Finals MVP awards), on par with Magic Johnson, and Phil Jackson has won 11 titles, widening his record over the Celtics Red Auerbach (who has 9 titles to his credit). Another amazing statistic is that Jackson is the only NBA coach to ever win multiple titles in a row four different times! He had two different three-peats with the Bulls, a three-peat with the Lakers and now back-to-back championships again with the Lakers. That’s just incredible, isn’t it?

2010 NBA Champion LA Lakers - Kobe Bryant Celebrating His Fifth NBA Championship
Another interesting turn of events from last night’s victory is that Kobe now has more NBA titles than Shaquille O’Neal (5 to 4). When asked what winning another NBA titale means to him individually, Kobe responded “Just got one more than Shaq. You can take that to the bank. You know how I am. I don't forget anything." I may be a Shaq guy, but that’s still pretty funny (and true).

2010 NBA Champion LA Lakers - Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol Celebrating Their Second Straight NBA Championship
I could go on and on about Pau’s amazing performance throughout the playoffs (he probably should have won the Finals MVP award this year), Ron Artest’s amazing in game 7 or DFish’s continued clutch shooting…but I won’t, because you already know how great they were! Instead I’ll just make an impassioned plea to Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss to please, please, please resign Phi Jackson. Pay the man his money so the Lakers can you win you a second three-peat. As we all know, Phil likes to do things in 3s.
