Olly Moss was commissioned by Craig Kyle and Kevin Feige at Marvel Pictures to create a special print for the cast and crew of the upcoming Thor live action movie. Olly even got to visit the set, read the script and check out all the story boards and concept art…what an incredible opportunity!
Rumor has it 100 prints were created and none will be available to the public. It was also confirmed by Olly on Twitter that there will not be a second colorway created to be sold to the public. If any of these ever do show up for sale, I assume they’ll end up fetching a pretty penny. At least we can all drool over a photo of this beautiful Thor screen print together!
Check out Hermees, the awesome new vinyl toy by Gary Ham. Hermees is a trickster and international traveler. He's developed quite the reputation and depending on where his journey's take him, he could bring luck, happiness, longevity, disease, or even…DEATH! Based on the 14” handmade wooden Hermees figures released earlier this year, this is second vinyl figure Gary has self-produced. Heremees looks great in vinyl, and The Blot can’t wait to check out this figure in person.
Hermees stands 8" tall with a wing span of 12” and has 8 points of articulation (head, snout, wings, hands and feet). This is quite an intricate figure for a self-produced toy! Hermees has a limited edition run size of 200 figures and retails for just $45. While this pink and brown bat is not scheduled to hit stores until early January, a few are currently available for purchase in Gary Ham’s online store.
