Blood & Fuzz 8 Inch Dunny by Luke Chueh - On Sale October 14th

While collectors have known about Luke Chueh’s upcoming 8 inch Blood & Fuzz Dunny for a while now, Kidrobot has still not given an official announcement of its release. Thankfully, Luke himself ended the speculation when he announced his upcoming signing at Kidrobot LA on Thursday, October 14th!

Kidrobot - Blood & Fuzz 8 Inch Flocked Dunny by Luke Chueh

Luke Chueh will be at the Los Angeles Kid Robot store, Thursday, October 14th, for the release of the 8 inch version of his Series 6 Dunny, the aptly titled Blood & Fuzz Dunny. The flocked 3” version of this figure was sick, so I can only imagine how awesome an 8” version will look! The signing will take place from 6:00pm - 8:00pm, but I’d be pretty hesitant to get the actual figure signed…not too sure how a signature would look on a flocked Dunny.

The run size and price of this figure is currently unknown, but the artwork seen above was created by Luke especially for the packaging of this figure. The Blot will be sure to write a follow up blog post once more details are known.

Mondo Star Wars Screen Print Series #8 - Salacious B. Crumb by Rhys Cooper

The eighth screen print in the Mondo Star Wars Screen Print Series was unveiled yesterday and it’s features Salacious B. Crumb, the Kowakian monkey-lizard employed by Jabba the Hutt as a quasi-court jester. The “Salacious B. Crumb” print by Rhys Cooper spotlights one of The Blot’s favorite scenes from Return of the Jedi, where Crumb is seen tearing out C-3PO’s eye as Jabba’s empire crumbles to the ground.

Mondo Star Wars Screen Print Series #8 - Salacious B. Crumb by Rhys Cooper

According to Cooper, "I always thought Salacious Crumb is the kind of character that makes Star Wars great. Little personalities like his are what give the galaxy far far away its depth and diversity."

“Salacious B. Crumb” by Rhys Cooper is a hand numbered 24″x36″ screen print with metallic inks. This killer Star Wars print has a limited edition run size of 325, and will retail for $50 each.

Kaws continues his Kaws-ification of iconic animated characters with this all new Tweety Bird vinyl figure based on the classic Looney Tunes character.

NYCC 2010 Exclusive Brent Nolasco x Blamo Mijo Resin Figure

The Brent Nolasco x Blamo Resin Project will be introduced to the world at New York Comic-Con 2010 at the Tenacious Toys booth # 2878. This project was created as a way for Brent to express himself with a series of non-conventional releases. Brent wanted the process of making figures and products to be more fine art than mass production. He wanted a more "hands on" approach to making his next figure, which brought him to the medium of resin.

New York Comic-Con 2010 Exclusive Brent Nolasco x Blamo 5.5 Inch Mijo (My Child) Resin Figure

The first resin figure in the Brent Nolasco x Blamo Project is Mijo (My Child). This 5.5” figure was painted with acrylic paints and will retail for $300 each. Brent first sculpted the Mijo figure by hand, something he had never done before. The figure consists of 6 pieces that are hand casted separately and each piece is then hand painted by Brent, so there is slight variation in each paint job. This ensures each piece is truly unique and has its own characteristics that set them apart from other figures in the release.

New York Comic-Con 2010 Exclusive Brent Nolasco x Blamo 5.5 Inch Mijo (My Child) Resin Figure

Brent likes that they are more organic and free-formed than pieces from a factory which pumps out products for the masses. It makes each release more personal. The runs on these upcoming figures are going to be limited quantities, while others will be just "one-offs". Brent is looking to do some sculpting and other interesting things with these figures to keep the ideas fresh.

New The Walking Dead Season 1 One Sheet Television Poster

We’re still over a month away from the series premiere of AMC's The Walking Dead, but the TV show’s marketing is now in full swing! Just check out the newest one sheet television poster for the show below. It seems like everyone is really excited for this comic book adaptation about a world overrun by zombies, but The Blot really hopes there’s actual interest in this property and it’s not all hype (ala Scott Pilgrim). Then again, the expectations placed on a cable television show are very different from those placed on a major summer movie.

The Walking Dead Season 1 One Sheet Television Poster

 The Walking Dead follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, traveling in search of a safe and secure home. Andrew Lincoln will portray the lead role of Rick Grimes while actor Jon Bernthal will portray the character Shane, who worked with Rick in the police department before the zombie disaster. Other cast members includes Laurie Holden, who plays Andrea, one of two sisters who join the survivors of the zombie plague, Steven Yeun as Glenn, an expert scavenger, and Sarah Wayne Callies, who plays Rick's wife Lori.

The Walking Dead, based on the popular Image comic book of the same name by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore, series premiere will air October 31, 2010 on AMC with a speical 90 minute episode.

NYCC 2010 Exclusive New Mutants Minimates Boxed Set

Action Figure Xpress (“AFX”) will be releasing a New York Comic-Con 2010 exclusive New Mutants boxed set based on the characters’ original look in the 1980s comic books. This NYCC exclusive box set includes New Mutants Cannonball, Susnpot, Wolfsbane and Karma.

As an added bonus, the set comes with two alternate heads of Wolfsbane and Sunspot. This way you can swap their heads out with Karma and Cannonball’s so you can have de-powered versions of Rahne and Roberto in their classic yellow and black uniforms. I don’t think I can accurately put into words how excited The Blot is for this release. The New Mutants was one of my favorite books as a kid, and for some reason action figures based on these characters’ original looks have never really been produced.

Kidrobot 2Tone Dunny Series Checklist & Ratios

Besides a few “leaked” photos, Kidrobot has been completely silent about today’s release of its newest 3” Dunny blind box series, the 2Tone Series. With that being said, you'd have to be living under a rock to not know that the series dropped today in extremely limited quantities! If you’re hoping to pick up a few blind boxes or even a case (which includes 16 blind boxes), you’d better act quickly as these are selling out everywhere and it’s only 9am.

Kidrobot 2Tone Dunny Series Checklist & Ratios
Since Kidrobot has still not made an official announcement about its 2Tone Dunny Series, The Blot thought I’d throw together a crude little checklist for all the collectors out there. The Blot’s 2Tone Checklist includes every design in the series and its official ratio as stated on the series' packaging. Thanks to Neon Monster for most of the photos above!!!

Kidrobot’s 2Tone Dunny Series is available now for $9.95 per blind box at Kidrobot stores, Kidrobot.com and select retailers worldwide. There are 14 figures in the 2Tone Dunny Series, which includes designs by Huck Gee, Gary Baseman, Doktor A, Angry Woebots, Aya Kakeda, Pon, Chuckboy, Tad Carpenter, Steven Harrington, Chuckboy, Ryan Bubnis, Aaron Meshon, Maxx242, and mcbess.

Rumors have been spreading like wildfire that Kidrobot would finally be including a design by Angry Woebots in its upcoming 2tone Series, and yesterday Woe not only confirmed this but leaked a photo of the figure! Woe’s cryptic message on his blog also announced we were just a couple of days away from the series’ unveiling...so get ready!

The Blot’s been dying for an official Panda Dunny by Woe, and this 3” figure definitely doesn’t disappoint! Woe’s Luck on a Spear Dunny was actually a design he submitted a long time ago and Kidrobot finally had the good sense to put it into production. What have they been waiting for? Not only is the design “killer,” but the figure’s accessory, a dead fish on a spear, is top notch.

According to Woe, he had actually created an updated 2tone version for KR’s next series, but the designer toy company decided to run with his original design. Look for Luck on a Spear Panda Dunny by Angry Woebots AP to drop the day after the release, whenever that might be.

Barneyism of the Week - The Sundress

It’s a sad day in New York, Ted.
A sad day indeed.
Do you know what I saw on my way in here?
A girl...in a sweater!

And you know what that means?
The season of exposed skin is over.
Exactly!

Gone are the tank tops, Ted.
Gone are the cute little skirts.
Gone are the sundresses! The sundresses, Ted.
I don’t think I can make it another 8 months with no sundresses.

“Barney, I really...I have to grade these papers.” - Ted

I’m sorry, I’ll let you work.

But first a riddle...

What piece of women’s attire most stokes a man’s desire?
“A sundress?” - Ted
Correct.

What lightweight outfit, pink or white,
makes the front of my slacks abnormally tight?
“I really have to get this done.” - Ted
Of course, of course...

Sundress by the way.

Threadless RoboCop “RoboCup” T-Shirt

You know, if Threadless hadn’t just released a very similar design (the Ghostbusters inspired “Something Strange, In Your Beverage...”) a few months ago, I’d like this RoboCop t-shirt a lot more. That isn’t to say I don’t like it (because I do), it’s just not all that original because it looks so similar to a previously released design. Regardless, “RoboCup” is a pretty cool t-shirt and I’ll definitely be ordering one sometime soon. I mean who wouldn’t want to drink a hot cup of joe out of a mug of RoboCop’s head?

ACLU Leading Freedom Forward Screen Print feat Olivia Wilde by Shephard Fairey

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg proclaimed today, September 15, American Civil Liberties Union Day in honor of the ACLU’s 90th anniversary! To celebrate the 90th anniversary of this important organization and the end of the ACLU’s Leading Freedom Forward fundraising campaign, which brought in $407 million in cash and planned gifts, the ACLU commissioned Obey Giant’s Shephard Fairey to create the poster you see below featuring one of The Blot’s favorite actresses, Olivia Wilde (House, TRON: Legacy).

American Civil Liberties Union Leading Freedom Forward Screen Print featuring Olivia Wilde by Shephard Fairey
The Leading Freedom Forward campaign was the biggest fundraising campaign in the ACLU’s 90 year history and what better way to memorialize this amazing achievement and milestone than with some equally amazing artwork. Aside from being a super cool actress, Olivia is also an activist and civil libertarian. She said of the ACLU:
I believe we have to judge our society not by how we treat the privileged and the empowered, but by how we treat the silenced, the condemned, the undocumented, and all those whose views and rights are deemed inconvenient. The ACLU works tirelessly to uphold the promise of the Constitution, and I am proud to support their courageous and necessary work. (link)
No word yet if the ACLU Leading Freedom Forward Screen Print featuring Olivia Wilde by Shephard Fairey will go on sale to the public, and if so, how many prints/posters will be produced.

Skeleton Custom Marshall Vinyl Figures by Leecifer

The amazing custom in Tenacious Toys’ upcoming Custom Marshall Blind Box Series is by California artist Leecifer. The Blot’s a huge fan of Lee’s work, especially his many Batman and pop culture inspired custom figures (definitely check out his awesome hand painted Super7 Mummy Boys!). If you’ve never seen Leecifer’s work, then I definitely suggest checking out his art at Flickr here. Leecifer contributed four Skeleton Marshalls to Tenacious Toys’ Marshall Custom Series, three like the figure you see below and one mystery color variant.

Kabuki Custom Marshall Vinyl Figures by Zam

Zam is the creator behind the newest custom figure in Tenacious Toys’ upcoming Custom Marshall Blind Box Series! Not only does Zam run Genuine Artikle on Long Island, NY, but he’s also a killer tattoo artist and an accomplished toy customizer. His Kabuki inspired custom figures look awesome, and I especailly like the way he transformed each Marshall's head. From the few pics I’ve seen the paintjobs look extremely tight! Zam created 4 custom Marshalls for Tenacious Toys’ upcoming Custom Series, including one secret variant.
