An interesting thing popped up in Gemini Collectibles’ prototype section last week, two never before seen unpainted The Incredibles Pop! Movie (or Pop! Heroes) vinyl figures! One is of Mr. Incredible and the other, the villainous Syndrome. Does this mean we’ll be seeing a wave of Pop! vinyl figures based on Disney/Pixar’s hit movie The Incredibles? All signs point to yes…and The Blot’s got a sinking suspicious we’ll be seeing more Disney themed Pop! vinyl figures from Funko relatively soon.
On Sunday The Blot attended the H-Town Sneaker Summit and finally got to meet in person an internet friend of mine, Levi of Grits Apparel! Not only is Levi a fellow lover of art, toys and the southern lifestyle, but he also knows how to make some killer t-shirts (see more here). In fact, one of my main reasons for attending the Sneaker Summit was to get my hands on Grits’ newest design, the “Greasy Spoons” t-shirt seen below. You can pick up one too, in black or blue, directly from the Grits online store for $25!
To celebrate Grits’ newest release, Levi will be teaming up with Austin’s Complete Clothing to throw a “Greasy Spoon” T-Shirt Release Party this Saturday, January 29th from 4pm-7pm. The event will feature Jaekim (91.7 fm KTRU's Phunkwhatchaheard/Houston) on the ones and twos and free adult beverages, all in honor of this exclusive t-shirt collaboration by Grits Apparel and Complete Clothing. All of The Blot’s Austin readers should definitely hit up this killer event, and please tell Levi hi for me.
Tenacious Toys, one of the The Blot’s favorite toy stores, has been tapped as the exclusive retailer of Argonaut Resins’ silver Peace King skulls. These Peace King resin skulls are part of Argonaut Resins’ extremely popular Kings of Atlantis line, and this silver colorway can only be found at Tenacious Toys. The silver Peace King skulls are limited to just 6 pieces, and each one comes with a magnetic talisman, a numbered certificate of authenticity and a custom-designed box.
The Tenacious Toys Exclusive Silver Peace Kings of Atlantis Resin Skulls by Argonaut Resins are available now and can be purchased here for $100.
