Ok, admit it…you really want Funko’s newest Pop! Rocks vinyl figures of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.! What better way to immortalize two of hip-hop’s greatest artists and the rap game’s greatest rivalry than with these cute and chunky vinyl figures? The Blot can’t decide which figure I like better…2pac with his “Thug Life” tattoo or Biggy Smalls’ dapper outfit.

The Blot never understands releases like this. Why wait to release a movie tie-in four months AFTER the film has already left theaters? While this Green Hornet 100% Be@rbrick Set looks cool, I can’t imagine demand is high after the film (directed by Michel Gondry and starring Seth Rogen) came and went without much of a bang. The Green Hornet was destined to bomb from the start, and while it pulled in decent numbers at the box office, will anyone remember it a few months from now? Well now you can immortalize this forgettable film with 100% Be@rbricks of The Green Hornet and his faithful assistant and valet Kato.
The Green Hornet and Kato 100% Be@rbrick Set will retail for $20 each and will go on sale on May 21, 2011. Unfortunately, this will be a Medicom Project 1/6 Exclusive, available online and at Rakuten in Japan. While I haven’t been able to get confirmation, I assume this means The Green Hornet 100% Be@rbrick Set will be a Japan exclusive.
For a while it felt like Gentle Giant was releasing a new jumbo vintage Star Wars figure every month, and then it all stopped. Well like the saying goes, you can’t keep a good dog down! Gentle Giant’s line of 12 inch vintage Star Wars action figure reproductions is back, and it’s next release is of everyone's favorite junk collectors, the diminutive Jawas. Digitally scanned from mint Kenner originals and reproduced to a substantial 7.5" tall, this 7.5” Jumbo Vintage Kenner Star Wars Jawa action figure by Gentle Giant is an exact replica of the classic ‘70s toy.
Injection molded and made of durable plastics, this jumbo figure includes a real dark brown cloth cape and awesome blaster…just like the original (and keep your eyes peeled for the ultra rare vinyl cape variation, which is really like the original!). Best of all, this classic Kenner creation comes packaged on a 1978 style Star Wars inspired blister card with a plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this awesome action figure.
