The Blot was in awe the moment I saw this amazing custom Totem Moola by Reactor-88! The Kalua Moola is an awesome resin figure based on a design by Lord Mesa and hand crafted by Argonaut Resins. The base figure for this custom is a blue tint Moola, which was utilized magnificently in Reactor-88’s totem design. I really like the way he left a good amount of the transparent resin showing through the totem design giving this custom a really unique look!
The Reactor-88 x Argonaut Resins Totem Moola was available for purchase at the Reactor-88 online store for $125, but it sold out in no time flat! Keep your eyes peeled to Reactor-88’s blog and flickr page for more amazing customs.
Mezco Toyz will be including even more characters from the DC Universe in its new line of Mini-Mez-Itz vinyl figures! Mezco’s first wave of DC Universe Mini-Mez-Itz 2 packs will include a Blue and Gray Batman and The Joker, Green Lantern Hal Jordan and Sinestro, and Superman and Mongul. What’s weird is Mezco's decision to include Mongul as Superman’s villain. In The Blot’s eyes Mongul is really a Green Lantern villain at this point. I would have much rather seen a Mini-Mez-Itz of Lex Luthor, Braniac or even Bizzaro included with Superman.
Mezco’s DC Universe Mini-Mez-Itz vinyl figures stand 2 inches tall, feature five points of articulation and will be packaged in 2-packs together on a blister card. You can purchase each 2-pack for around $10 or all three 2-packs of Wave 1 for around $30. While DC Universe Mini-Mez-Itz Series 1 is not scheduled to ship until late July 2011, you can preorder all 6 figures directly from Mezco Toyz here.
Mezco Toyz is set to release a 2” Batman Mini-Mez-Itz, and this Black and Gray version of the Dark Knight has the distinct pleasure of being the first DC Universe character produced with his own vehicle, the Batmobile! What’s even cooler is Batman can actually fit inside the Batmobile and there’s even room for a 2nd passenger. It sounds like Mezco better get working on a Robin Mini-Mez-Itz right away.
Mini-Mez-Itz vinyl figures feature all the coolness and articulation of their larger counterpart but at 1/3 the size. Batman’s Batmobile measures nearly 6” long, features a detailed cockpit and has a convertible hardtop so the Dark Knight and a passenger can fit inside. This Batman and Batmobile set comes packaged together in a collector friendly window box and will retail for around $20. While the set is not scheduled to ship until late July 2011, you can preorder the set directly from Mezco here.
