Kidrobot's Newest Production Dunny: Arlequine 3” Dunny by Koralie

Kidrobot: Arlequine 3 Inch Dunny Vinyl Figure by Koralie

It looks like Kidrobot will be releasing more and more individual 3” Dunnys and The Blot loves it. First came Birro the Clown by Chauskoskis and now meet Arlequine by Koralie! The quality of these designs has been top notch, and it’s great that artists like Chauskoskis and Koralie get the spotlight all to themselves. All I want to know now is who’s next!?!

Star of the show, the happy acrobat performs for the crowd. A servant of laughs and those who adore her, Arlequine hides behind a black mask and red painted lips. A fabric collar frames her face and dwarfs her 3 inch frame. Holding a blue balloon, she stands coyly, waiting for the curtain to fall.

Kidrobot: Arlequine 3 Inch Dunny Vinyl Figure by Koralie

The Arlequine 3” Dunny by Koralie debuts April 12th and has a limited edition run size of just 1,500 figures. Each figure retails for $14.95, and is available exclusively at Kidrobot retail stores. I guess this means no online sales? That’s a serious bummer for most, but thankfully I’ll be traveling back to Las Vegas in late April and will most definitely be hitting up the Kidrobot at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

The Avengers LEGO Edition Movie Poster


The official twitter account for this summer’s The Avengers tweeted a picture of this amazing LEGO version of the film’s final theatrical one sheet movie poster. It is the exact same poster as the one seen here, but all of the characters have been replaced with their LEGO mini figure counterparts. Seriously, how great is this!?! According to Twitter, this Avengers movie poster in LEGO form will be available in select movie theaters on May 4th (while supplies last). Sadly that’s not really all that helpful, but it’s all we got! Good luck hunting one down…

Marvel's The Avengers assemble in theaters this summer on May 4, 2012.

KFHC Exclusive Kentucky Bluegrass Ugly Unicorn by Rampage Toys

KFHC Exclusive Kentucky Bluegrass Ugly Unicorn Vinyl Figure by Rampage Toys

I know The Blot probably says this a lot, but I have really been looking forward to the release of the KFHC x Rampage Toys Kentucky Bluegrass Ugly Unicorn. This particular shade of blue was custom a custom color designed by Monster Worship for 2010’s Kentucky Bluegrass Greasebat, which still ranks as my favorite RFGB. I’ve come to love this color of Japanese vinyl and got really excited when I learned KFHC and Rampage Toys were working with Monster Worship to recreate the color for this release (making it just the 2nd figure to ever feature this unique shade of blue).

KFHC Exclusive Kentucky Bluegrass Ugly Unicorn Vinyl Figure by Rampage Toys

The KFHC x Rampage Toys Kentucky Bluegrass Ugly Unicorn stands 5" tall and will be sold unpainted and painted. The unpainted Kentucky Bluegrass Ugly Unicorn has a limited edition run size of 10 pieces and will retail for $35 each, while the Kentucky Bluegrass “Angry Eyes” Ugly Unicorn (painted by Jon Malmstedt of Rampage Toys) has a limited edition run size of 10 pieces and will retail for $45 each.

The Muppets Pop! Vinyl Figures by Funko

The Muppets Pop! Series 1 by Funko - Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear & Gonzo Vinyl Figures

The most anticipated Pop! release of 2012 is almost upon us! Funko is releasing an all new line of The Muppets Pop! vinyl figures this summer and they look awesome! Actually, there’s something about Kermit’s head that looks a little off but the rest of the figures look perfect. I just hope they continue this line so I can collect all of the Electric Mayhem. The Muppets Pop! Series 1 includes Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Animal, Dr. Teeth, Mahna Mahna and Snowth.

The Muppets Pop! Series 1 by Funko - Animal, Dr. Teeth, Mahna Mahna & Snowth Vinyl Figures

Mahna Mahna and Snowth were definitely a surprise inclusion into Series 1, but I know diehard Muppet fans will love getting their hands on these two underappreciated characters. Plus the rarity of Mahna Mahna and Snowth toys should make these highly sought after. Each The Muppets Pop! vinyl figure stands 3.75", features one point of articulation and comes packaged in a full color displayable window box. While these toys are not expected to hit store shelves until July 2012, you can pre-order them now from Entertainment Earth here for $9.99 each.

“20,000 Leagues Under The Sea” Disney Screen Print by Ken Taylor

Mondo x Sideshow Collectibles “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea” Disney Screen Print by Ken Taylor

Mondo and Sideshow Collectibles have teamed up once again to release an all new Disney screen print today, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea by Ken Taylor. I love this screen print by Ken Taylor because of the old school movie poster vibe it gives off. The imagery this movie provided was incredible and Ken really nailed it. This might just be my favorite print Ken’s ever created! It’s also worth noting that this is the first Mondo screen print for a live action Disney movie. For those of you not familiar with the 1954 live action movie this print is based on, it starred Kirk Douglas as Ned Land, James Mason as Captain Nemo, Paul Lukas as Professor Pierre Aronnax and Peter Lorre as Conseil.

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea” by Ken Taylor is a 36”x24” hand numbered screen print, and has a limited edition run size of 390 pieces. The print will retail for $50 and go on sale at a random time on today, Friday, March 30th, at the Mondo online store.

Winter Is Coming: Game of Thrones Season 2 Teaser Posters

Game of Thrones Season 2 Teaser Television Poster - War Is Coming

Game of Thrones, the most talked about show of 2011, returns to HBO this week and The Blot can’t wait! Thankfully Game of Thrones is one of the few shows/movies that actually lived up to its gigantic budget and HBO was more than happy to give a second season the green light. I was hoping to start reading George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series after watching the first season, but I never got around to it. So I really have no idea where this story is going to go. But I’ve got a feeling some crazy stuff is about to happen to the show’s large and diverse cast of characters.

“Comics Rule” Me and Mr Death Series 2 Resin Figures by Roberto Gionta

“Comics Rule” Me and Mr Death Series 2 Resin Figures by Roberto Gionta

Italian designer and web cartoonist Roberto "RX" Gionta has completed his “Comics Rule” RX and Mr. Death Series 2 resin figures and they turned out awesome! Series 2 features comic versions of RX and Mr Death based on their appearances in Roberto’s webcomic RX: Real Life Stories. It’s a great webcomic that you can enjoy whether you speak English or Italian. This two figure set includes a scythe, beer mug and a beer can, and has a limited edition run size of just 7 sets. Each figure stands approximately 6.5” tall, comes hand painted by the artist and packaged in a really nice foam lined box.

“Comics Rule” Me and Mr Death Series 2 Resin Figures and Packaging by Roberto Gionta

If you’re not familiar with Gionta’s characters, RX is a pretentious loser still searching for himself after graduating from school. He’s a chronic pessimist and quite a good burper. Mr. Death is the Grim Reaper who has been trying, unsuccessfully, to get at RX for years. Oh yeah, and he loves beer!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation First Look: Elodie Yung as Jinx

G.I. Joe: Retaliation First Look: Elodie Yung as Jinx

The newest still image to be released in conjunction with the marketing of this summer’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation is of Elodie Yung as Jinx! The Blot’s always been a huge Jinx fan, starting with her debut in the 1987 animated film G.I. Joe: The Movie. A month later she would make her debut in the Marvel comic book and the rest is history. Jinx has never been a hugely popular G.I. Joe character, but she always seems to pop back up eventually in every iteration of the franchise. After making a brief appearance in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Jinx is ready to take center stage in G.I. Joe: Retaliation as the film explores the history of the Arashikage ninja clan.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation is scheduled to premier in theaters on June 29, 2012.

Tenacious Toys Exclusive Uncle Argh Noir Qee by Scott Tolleson Kickstarter Project

Tenacious Toys Exclusive Noir Edition Uncle Argh Mini Qee by Scott Tolleson

The second colorway of Scott Tolleson’s popular Uncle Argh Mini Qee is in the works, but it needs your support to make it happen. This particular Kickstarter project is intended to fund an exclusive grayscale colorway, the Noir Edition, of Scott's 5" Uncle Argh Mini Qee. Toy2R will produce 500 of these figures in all, with all (minus the Kickstarter rewards) sold as Tenacious Toys exclusive. Everything for this project is ready to go, all that’s left is to raise the money! All funds raised through this Kickstarter project will be used to manufacture the Uncle Argh NOIR vinyl figures and cover their shipping from Hong Kong to the US.

The Blot’s a huge fan of both Scott Tolleson and Tenacious Toys, so here’s hoping these two forces can make this project happen. There’s still 34 days to go and the Noir Edition Uncle Argh Qee is almost funded, but there’s still a way to go! So head over to Kickstarter to find out more about how you can support the creation of Uncle Argh's second colorway.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation First Look: Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock

G.I. Joe: Retaliation First Look: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Roadblock

The next G.I. Joe: Retaliation still image to hit the web is of the film’s star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Roadblock. Roadblock was always one of The Blot’s favorite G.I. Joe characters from the ‘80s cartoon and comic book series. Sadly at some point in the late '90s Hasbro decided to replace Roadblock with Heavy Duty, but for the life of me I could not figure out why. I guess it worked out then that it was Heavy Duty, and not Roadblock, in the horrible G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. This allowed Roadblock to take center stage in what is starting to look like a good movie, G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation is scheduled to premier in theaters on June 29, 2012.

Tuttz Mini Series 7 by Argonaut Resins - Tweety & Bad Tweety Chase Resin Figures

END of Argonaut Resins is hard at work at finishing his extremely popular Tuttz Mini Series 7. There will be 14 more mini Tuttz resin figures released to round out Series 7, and so far these might be the best Tuttz Minis ever! I especially love these Tweety Bird inspired colorways entitled “Tweet” and “Bad Tweety.” These Series 7 chase figures are some of the best yellow color schemes I’ve ever seen on a Tuttz.

Tuttz Mini Series 7 by Argonaut Resins

Each Tuttz Mini Series 7 resin figure will retail for $40 and can be purchased at the Argonaut Resins online store. No word on when these figures will go on sale, but you can believe they will be gone in a flash when they do! I don’t know about you, but The Blot’s got his eye on that beautiful Metallic Bubblegum Tuttz Mini on the right!

Clothe Yourself in Awesome, a Kickstarter Project by Lain Lee 3 - “Assemble”, “Doodle Power” & “99 Problems” T-Shirts

It’s pretty rare that we feature Kickstarter projects here on TheBlotSays.com. Usually I just tweet about them on Twitter, but this is one I wanted to give special attention to. I first met San Francisco artist Lain Lee 3 on Twitter and have been following his work ever since. He’s a fellow t-shirt collector and launched this Kickstarter fashion project entitled “Clothe Yourself in Awesome” to get his new t-shirt line off the ground and in your closet! Lain has picked three of his most popular designs to kick off the collection and has set some really reasonably priced reward packages.

These t-shirts are so dope, my only problem is deciding which one to get! But you don’t have to limit yourself, get all three! There’s The Avengers inspired “Assemble”, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles inspired “Doodle Power” and the Nike sneaker tee “99 Problems”, all three designed in Lain 3’s signature style. The “Clothe Yourself in Awesome” fashion project by Lain Lee 3 still has 10 days to go and could use your support…head over to Kickstarter to find out more!

The Mooncrow Resin Figure by Motorbot

The Mooncrow Resin Figures by Motorbot

The Blot is excited to introduce you to Motorbot’s Mooncrow, one of the most unique collaborations in the history of designer toys. You see, the Mooncrow was actually created by one of Motorbot’s kids! Based on the drawings of his oldest daughter, Motorbot redesigned the creature and began sculpturing. With her birthday quickly approaching, Motorbot decided to surprise her by having The Mooncrow ready on her birthday. How freaking cool is that!?!

The Mooncrow Original Concept Art by Motorbot and Daughter

She had no idea Motorbot was working on the figure, but he kept getting bits of info out of her about this monster she created. He was called a mooncrow and she wanted a silver one. And so, the mooncrow was officially born on her birthday! She was quite excited and after some negotiations she agreed to let Motorbot offer him to the public…but for a small fee. Already an entrepreneur at such a young age! Her daddy must be so proud.

The Mooncrow Resin Figure by Motorbot

The Mooncrow is now available at the Deadbear Studios online store for $35 each. Only 10 Mooncrows have been produced, 5 one offs and 5 GID white pearl editions, and the figure’s original designer will be getting a cut from each figure sold. So be sure to pick one up while supplies last and support one of the youngest designer toy makers ever!

Threadless Star Trek: The Next Generation x Michael Jordan's Air Jordan Nike Brand T-Shirt “Air Geordi”
Air Geordi by Justin Davis

While The Blot’s never been much of a Trekkie, I have always loved Star Trek: The Next Generation. As a kid I probably watched every episode of TNG 2 or 3 times, but nowadays I’d struggle to get through an entire episode. With that being said, I still hold the cast and crew of Star Trek: The Next Generation in high regard and absolutely love this new Threadless design "Air Geordi". This mashup of Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge (played by fan favorite LeVar Burton) with Michael Jordan’s signature “Air Jordan” Nike logo is utter genius. How many t-shirt designs out there can appeal to both geeks and sneaker heads all at the same time? It is also probably one of the few Threadless t-shirts I’ve ordered on the spot!

The Star Trek: TNG t-shirt “Air Geordi” comes printed on a silver t-shirt for guys and a creme t-shirt for girls, and is currently available for purchase at Threadless.com for $20. The shirt comes in both guys and girls styles, sizes S-2XL.

The SHILED logo in The Avengers poster is also pretty awesome.  Each movie poster in DaveWill’s Marvel Movie Poster Series has been released as an 18”x24” print on 350gsm stock. Only 10 prints of each Marvel movie poster were produced and they retailed for around $40, but unfortunately they’re all gone now. Keep your eyes peeled to DaveWill’s official website for future releases in this exciting series.

G.I. Joe Retaliation First Look - Ray Park as Snake Eyes

So G.I. Joe: Retaliation has finally started releasing some still images of its cast and first up is fan favorite Snake Eyes (played by Ray Park). While Snake Eye’s overall look in the first film was spot on, his helmet was pretty much hated by everyone because of the molded lips. Why would they do that for a character known for not speaking? Seems like a Michael Bay move to me! It ranks right up there with the nipples on Batman’s uniform in Batman and Robin as one of the stupidest costume decisions ever. Thankfully they got it right this time by dropping the lips and amping up the cool! It’s just too bad they didn’t go with this look from the start. For those of you keeping score at home…that makes it G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra - 0, G.I. Joe: Retaliation - 1.

Edgar Wright Live! Screen Print by Kevin Tong

This weekend in Austin, director Edgar Wright is presenting all three of his films to open the brand new Alamo Drafthouse on Slaughter Lane. If you don’t know, this includes Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Hot Fuzz, all three instant classics in The Blot’s book. To commemorate this exciting event, Kevin Tong has been commissioned to create a screen print for the event and it rocks! Everyone coming to any one of Edgar’s four screenings will be able to buy the poster, and The Blot is really holding out hope a few of these make it to Mondo’s online store eventually.

If you’re in Austin this weekend I really hope you’ve got tickets to this very special event at the Alamo Drafthouse’s brand new theater on Slaughter Lane. If not, the only show not sold out is the dinner screening of Scott Pilgrim at 7:15. So buy a ticket while you still can (and pick up a print for The Blot while you’re there!).

The Manotaur roams the world in search of something he can't quite remember.

In any case, he's pretty sure he's forgetting something really important...

Marvel’s marketing department took those kinda lame The Avengers international one sheet movie posters and turned them into pretty sweet international movie banners. It’s amazing what a different format and a little photoshopping can do! I absolutely love the Avengers team banner above. It’s got everything I loved about the movie posters and got rid of everything I hated. Plus this is the first time we see Cobie Smulders’ Maria Hill as a part of the team. My biggest complaint about these The Avengers movie banners? How fake the backgrounds look. Worst explosions in a poster ever!
