Leecifer, the self-proclaimed toy ruiner, is about to see the release of his very first production toy (congrats Lee!). The Flame is the newest addition to Super7’s Monster Family and is sure to set the toy world ablaze. With his fiery body and wood legs, The Flame is a nice addition to Super7’s 4” line of vinyl figures.
The Flame by Leecifer will make its debut on Saturday, February 26th. Collectors can purchase the original colorway of The Flame online at Super7Store.com at 11am PST or later that night at 6pm at the upcoming of an all new custom toy are show featuring the works of Leecifer and Paul Kaiju!
Before Marvel unveiled its first trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger last night during the Super Bowl, they released the film’s first one sheet movie poster. The teaser poster’s not The Blot’s favorite, but the image is quite striking. I think between the new poster and the teaser trailer (seen below), I’m starting to feel good about this movie. Am I the only person who thinks Chris Evans might actually be able to pull off a live action Captain America?
Captain America: The First Avenger will hit theaters this summer on Friday, July 22nd.
Talk about DC Direct being on the ball! DC Comics hasn’t even released the first issue of its upcoming company summer crossover Flashpoint, and here they are already promoting its new line of Flashpoint specific action figures. Evidently DC Direct has been working closely with Flashpoint writer Geoff Johns’ concepts and artist Andy Kubert’s designs to bring you four awesome figures based on the characters central to Flashpoint’s storyline.
Flashpoint Wave 1 consists of The Flash, Batman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg. While The Flash looks kind of lame, how sick are the Cyborg and Wonder Woman figures? I don’t know about you, but these figures have The Blot even more excited about this "what if" type storyline. I might even pick up the books after seeing these character designs. Look for Flashpoint Wave 1 action figures in stores everywhere this summer.
Thanks to Twitter, The Blot’s been able to learn about some really great artists I might not have been able to before. One of those very talented people is swiss designer Pepe and his Smallstuff Studio. Pepe does some incredible things with wood, including these 4” wood figures. WOODSPRITES are handcrafted by Pepe out of Sapele and Maple wood, and each sprite is unique in its shape and wood texture. So every WoodSprite is a true one of a kind figure!
This limited edition release includes 12 WOODSPRITES figures. Each has a natural beewax finish, an iron-branding on its backside with the artist’s signature, and is individually numbered on the bottom. These awesome wood figures will go on sale at the Smallstuff online store today, Monday, February 7th, at 19:00 CET. Each figure retails for $50 each.
