Argonaut Resins x Onell Designs Kings of Atlantis Glyos Figures

Argonaut Resins x Onell Designs Kings of Atlantis Glyos Figures

Wow, Argonaut Resins’ upcoming collaboration with Onell Designs just keeps getting better! Not only is END and Co. producing a line of Tuttz Glyos figures (the Tuttz Bad Luck Squadron), but they’re also creating a rival Glyos figure, the Kings of Atlantis! This is so cool on a number of levels, but The Blot especially loves seeing the merger of two of Argonaut Resins’ most popular original characters.

According to legend, the Tuttz are looking for an ancient relic that was taken from their home world a very long time ago. They have finally found the location of the world they believe holds this relic, but it is inhabited by a race of beings older and more powerful than them. The Kings of Atlantis settled on this hidden planet thousands of years ago, after plundering many galaxies of their riches. Everyone who has ever come to the Kings of Atlantis's planet in search of the Universe’s greatest treasures has perished…that is until now! The Tuttz Bad Luck Squadron will have their might tested trying to recover their ancient relic on this hostile world hidden deep within the outer regions of space. On an alien world - there will be war!

Mama Sama Iro Korudo Resin Figure by Erick Scarecrow

ESC Toy - Mama Sama Iro Korudo Resin Figure by Erick Scarecrow

October's Secret Release from ESC Toy is so beautiful I almost want to just post the picture and let it talk for itself. That clear tinted resin just looks amazing doesn’t it? The Mama Sama Iro Korudo is the 3rd colorway in the Mama Sama collection. The 6" figure comes with two removable accessories (one spear and wings), comes hand painted and signed and numbered by Erick Scarecrow, and has a limited edition run size of 10 pieces. The Iro Korudo colorway goes on sale sometime mid-October via the ESC Toy online store and retails for $250 (with $1 shipping and handling).

Mama Sama Iro Korudo’s Official Story: After defeating the Pearly Guardian, Mama Sama was disappointed with her spoils and decided to go home. She had grown an appetite from the battle and decided to head to a local 24 hour convenience store that was next to a closed down dungeon. Upon entering the shop, Mama Sama noticed it was empty and not even the cashier was present. She left lonely and went aisle to aisle until she stumbled upon a gang of Turtum Miccis. They had tied the cashier up and were struggling with trying to open a large magically locked safe. When they noticed Mama Sama they quickly surrounded her. The gang of Turtum Miccis began to hum and the sound deafened Mama Sama. The humming had changed the appearance of Mama Sama and made her obey every command they gave. Once she opened the safe for them, the Turtum Miccis anxiously reviewed its contents. It wasn't money and it wasn't a commissioned S.Maria, instead it was a file on a dangerous Papa Sama called... the Jelly Swordsman.

Toy Review: Green Lantern Mimobots

DC Comics x Mimoco USB Flash Drives - Sinestro and Hal Jordan Green Lantern Mimobots

It’s weird, but as popular as Mimobots are The Blot’s never actually seen one out of its packaging. Thankfully I was able to get my hands on two Green Lantern DC Comics Mimobots recently and give them a proper review. While originally released in conjunction with last summer’s live action Green Lantern movie, the look of these figures is actually based on the comic book version of the characters (hence the yellow ring wielding Sinestro). This is obviously a very good thing since the movie was such a dud!

DC Comics x Mimoco USB Flash Drives - Sinestro and Hal Jordan Green Lantern Mimobots in Packaging

The two Green Lantern Mimobots I received were 2GB Hal Jordan and Sinestro figures and they’re all kinds of awesome! I’ve always thought Mimobots were a cool idea, but seeing them in their packaging always gave me the impression they were too big for everyday use as a portable USB thumb drive. The truth is they’re not as tall or heavy as I originally thought, which are both huge positives in my book. Because of that, if I had one recommendation to Mimoco it would be to change the packaging.

DC Comics x Mimoco Hal Jordan Green Lantern Mimobot USB Flash Drive

I’ve owned a number of USB flash drives over the past few years and I’ve found that I’m actually pretty picky. One of my biggest concerns with thumb drives is whether or not they can fit into the USB slots in all of the various computers I use regularly. I’ve had a number of designer USB flash drives that can’t fit into certain desktop computer USB slots because of their design, and there is nothing more infuriating! That’s definitely not a concern with Mimoco’s Mimobots and their extended heads. Once you pop off the foreheads of Hal and Sinestro, they’re ready to go (and feat easily in all three of my personal and work computers).

DC Comics x Mimoco Hal Jordan Green Lantern Mimobot USB Flash Drive and MAD Zombie Biker 3 Inch Dunny

As a huge DC Comics fan the big draw of these Green Lantern Mimobots are the characters themselves, but they are also come preloaded with Green Lantern themed wallpapers, icons, screensavers, avatars and more! I don’t see myself using these extras, but they’re a nice added touch for those who want to customize their computers with some cool Green Lantern content. The quality control on these figures’ paint jobs is pretty good but by no means perfect. As soon as I opened them up I noticed some blemishes in their designs, however they actually take a pretty good beating floating around in my backpack. That really says something since these are designed to be functional toys.

DC Comics x Mimoco USB Flash Drives - Sinestro and Hal Jordan Green Lantern Mimobots

All in all, I’ve been using my Hal Jordan Mimobot for a couple of weeks now and I really love it. Of all the “designer” USB flash drives I’ve used over the years, these Green Lantern thumb drives are definitely my favorite. Plus, where else can you get your files protected by a Green Lantern’s light? The only thing missing is a little hole in their feet where you can add a lanyard or keychain for extra portability. I’ll also probably choose a higher memory capacity next time around. While 2GB is usually sufficient, it’s hard to resist the pull of a more memory (you can choose from 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB). If you’re a fan of DC Comics or any of Mimoco’s other properties including Star Wars, Hello Kitty and Star Wars, then I highly recommend picking up one of these cool USB flash drives.

New York Comic-Con 2011 Exclusive Compound Hulk Marvel Universe Action Figure

Hasbro has announced its first New York Comic-Con 2011 Exclusive and it’s incredible! Well, incredible as in the Incredible Hulk! Hasbro will be releasing a NYCC Exclusive Marvel Universe Compound Hulk 3 ¾” action figure, which is inspired by Hulk #30 by Jeff Parker and Ed McGuinness. In that issue the two hulking enemies were combined into one red-and-green behemoth! The figure is based on the artwork of superstar artist Ed McGuinness, and his artwork adorns the special edition blister card and outer packaging of this limited edition figure!

Hulk Issue #30 Cover Artwork by Ed McGuinness & New York Comic-Con 2011 Exclusive Compound Hulk Marvel Universe Action Figure in Packaging

To be honest The Blot hasn’t read the Hulk in years, but I really love this figure because it reminds me so much of DC’s Silver Age villain the Composite Superman (who looked like half Superman and half Batman). This is definitely going to be a must get for any Incredible Hulk and Red Hulk fan! Be sure to stop by Hasbro’s NYCC booth #302 to pick up your Compound Hulk Marvel Universe action figure for just $11. Any remaining stock will be sold at HasbroToyShop.com after the convention.

The Dark Knight Rises Second Look: Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

The Dark Knight Rises Second Look: Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

Thank god! Everyone’s fears surrounding Anne Hathaway’s costume as Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film The Dark Knight Rises can finally be put to rest. Just Jared leaked photos yesterday of Hathaway in a proper Catwoman costume with both a black mask and cat ears! It’s not quite the modern day version of Catwoman everyone was hoping for, but it’s definitely better than the first leaked photos of Hathaway as Selena Kyle seen here. More details to come as they're leaked!

The Dark Knight Rises is scheduled for release on July 20, 2012.

SDCC 2011 Exclusive Martian Manhunter Metallic Variant DC Universe Pop! Vinyl Figure Toy Review

San Diego Comic-Con 2011 Exclusive Martian Manhunter Metallic Variant DC Universe Pop! Heroes Vinyl Figure by Funko

It’s hard to explain just how excited The Blot was for Funko’s San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Martian Manhunter Metallic Variant DC Universe Pop! Heroes vinyl figure. True story: a friend asked if there were any Funko San Diego Comic-Con 2011 exclusives I wanted. At the time Funko had only announced their Disney exclusives and I replied “the only exclusive I’d have to get is if they release a Metallic Martian Manhunter.” Then on the first day of Comic-Con I got an email telling me Funko's DC Comics exclusives, which of course included a metallic J’onn J’onzz of Mars! I was beyond pumped, and it ended up being one of only two SDCC 2011 exclusives I purchased last summer.

The Martian Manhunter has always been one of my favorite DC characters and as you all know I’m a sucker for a limited edition SDCC exclusive colorways. I’d never actually owned one of Funko’s metallic colorways before, but I thought J’onn’s bold look would really be enhanced by metallic paint. I was so right! The Martian Manhunter’s green skill really pops in metallic paint, and it makes the red of his uniform stand out even more than before. There’s not much to J’onn’s uniform but I think that’s what makes it so timeless.

San Diego Comic-Con 2011 Exclusive Martian Manhunter Metallic Variant DC Universe Pop! Heroes Vinyl Figure Packaging by Funko

I am so glad Funko did not go with the Martian Manhunter’s “Brave New World” look with the oval shaped head and military looking cape/collar. However they did use his Brightest Day look, which while not my favorite is way better than the horrible Brave New World look and his new look in the recently rebooted DC Universe (ala Stormwatch #1). There really is only one slight difference between Jonzz’ classic uniform and his Brightest Day uniform, the round Mars looking circle on his chest where his straps meet. But I guess beggars can’t be choosers right? I’m just glad they made a Martian Manhunter Pop! vinyl figure and decided to release him as a Mettalic Variant!

The only real complaint I have about this figure is the sloppy paint job. Sadly, this seems to be a recurring complaint with Funko’s Pop! and Blox toy lines. If Funko could get its quality control in check these toys could be huge! Then again, maybe that’s one of the reasons Funko has been able to keep its prices so long even with relatively low run sizes.

The San Diego Comic-Con 2011 Exclusive Martian Manhunter Metallic Variant DC Universe Pop! Vinyl Figure by Funko stands 3.75” tall, has a rotating head and comes in a displayable window box. The figure has a limited edition run size of 480 pieces and can be purchased here on Amazon.com for just $15.99!

Disney Vinylmation Park Starz Series 1 - Pirates of the Caribbean & Abraham Lincoln

Disney Vinylmation Park Starz Series 1 - President Abraham Lincoln & a Skeleton Pirate from Pirates of the Caribbean

On Friday two more figures from Disney’s Vinylmation Park Starz Series 1 were announced! Park Starz takes classic characters from Disney Theme Parks around the world and reinterprets them as unique collectible vinyl figures. The two new figures announced today are a Skeleton Pirate from Pirates of the Caribbean and Abraham Lincoln, our nation’s 16th president. If you’re wondering what Honest Abe’s connect is to Disney’s theme parks, here’s a little history lesson: The Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln attraction debuted in the State of Illinois pavilion at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair before moving to Disneyland on July 18, 1965. Mr. Lincoln also appears in the Hall of Presidents attraction at Magic Kingdom.

Created by Disney Design Group artists Thomas Scott and Casey Jones, Park Starz Series 1 includes 11 characters and one “mystery chaser” figure. Unlike previous Vinylmation Series, each of the 12 figures in Park Starz Series 1 will be completely different. Disney Vinylmation Park Starz Series 1 will be released in mid to late October 2011.

Icing a la Creme Snapback by Nerdy Fresh

Icing a la Creme Snapback Hat by Nerdy Fresh

It’s Snapback Day at TheBlotSays.com, where throughout the day I’ll be featuring some of my favorite hats currently available via the world wide web. Up first is the Icing a la Creme snapback by Dallas, Texas’ own Nerdy Fresh! This is the design that first turned me on to Nerdy Fresh back in the summer of 2010, and my Icing a la Creme t-shirt is still one of my favorites. At the time, I had no idea this was one of the brand’s first designs and it sold out in a matter of days.

And now Nerdy Fresh is brining the ice back with these sweet snapbacks! The Icing a la Creme Snapback comes in two colorways (Black/Blue and Black/Purple), features a gray under visor and a plastic snapback that matches the colorway’s visor. Each Icing a la Creme hat is currently on sale for $29.99 each and can be purchased at the Nerdy Fresh online store.

Pearl Jam Twenty Documentary by Cameron Crowe World Premiere

Pearl Jam Twenty Official Theatrical One Sheet Movie Poster
Click on the photo above for a more detailed look
Today is a big day for The Blot as it marks the world premiere of the new Pearl Jam documentary PJ20 directed by Cameron Crowe, which highlights the Seattle band’s twenty year career. Cities all around the globe are hosting one night only screenings of PJ20, to see if there is a theater near you (and if tickets are still available) click here. As you all probably know, The Blot is a lifelong diehard Pearl Jam fan, so of course I bought tickets for Houston’s screening of the film as soon as they went on sale. It’s hard to believe the band has already been around for twenty years! I still remember where I was when I heard the band’s debut album Ten for the very first time. I was 12 years old and at summer camp, and my life would never be the same again…

Pearl Jam Twenty Hardcover Book

If you’re not familiar with Pearl Jam Twenty, it chronicles the years leading up to the band’s formation, the chaos that ensued soon after their rise to mega-stardom, their step back from center state, and the creation of a trusted circle that would surround them…giving way to a work culture that would sustain them for two decades. Told in big themes and bold colors with blistering sound, the film is carved from over 1,200 hours of rarely seen and never before seen footage spanning the band’s career. Pearl Jam Twenty is the definitive portrait of Pearl Jam: part concert film, part intimate insider-hang, part testimonial to the power of music and uncompromising artists.

To coincide with the documentary, Pearl Jam has also released a Pearl Jam Twenty hardcover book ($22) that chronicles the band’s past two decades with a forward by Crowe, an official Pearl Jam Twenty Soundtrack ($16), which includes 2 cds and 29 tracks of rare and unreleased recordings, and the official Pearl Jam Twenty DVD for $14.

The Walking Dead Season 2 One Sheet Television Poster

The Walking Dead Season 2 One Sheet Television Poster

Has it really already been a year since The Walking Dead premiered on AMC!?! Man has time flown by…it seems just like yesterday the little comic book adaptation that could was debuting on television. It was a super short Season 1, but it was excellent (for the most part). Since then the network has fired just about everyone who works behind the scenes on the show and announced it will be splitting Season 2 into two so as minimize the hiatus between seasons. This seems like a horrible idea since Season 2 will also be pretty short, but what can you do? AMC seems determined to ruin all of its popular, critically acclaimed original programming until it’s left with nothing. Someone over there needs to get fired!

The Walking Dead Season 2 is scheduled to premiere on Sunday, October 16th, at 9/8c on AMC. The Season 2 one sheet television poster recreates the eerie image of Season 1’s poster featuring Rick Grimes traveling through a deserted landscape. I don’t want to spoil Season 2 for anyone, but for those of us who have read the comic book series you know the poster does a great job setting the scene for Season 2’s main storyline. I for one am really looking forward to the start of the new TWD season!

The Simpsons Poster by Olly Moss

The Simpsons Poster by Olly Moss

Yesterday on Twitter Olly Moss unveiled this killer Simpsons poster he made featuring Homer. The poster is for a charity screening of classic The Simpsons episodes at The Underground Picturehouse at the Water Poet in Shoreditch on October 6th curated by Ultra Culture and Moss. They’ll be showing a few of their favorite episodes (pre-Season 9 naturally), holding contests and all kinds of other fun stuff all for around $10 with all proceeds going to the Red Cross! No word yet if this awesome The Simpsons screen print will be sold to the public, but it’s probably worth trying to attend just in case! Sadly England is a little far for The Blot to travel for an event like this, but I’m dying to know if there will be prints available nevertheless.
