The Dark Knight Rises “A Fire Will Rise” One Sheet Movie Poster

The Dark Knight Rises “A Fire Will Rise” One Sheet Movie Poster

After so many great movie banners and character movie posters, how did Warner Bros. marketing team screw up The Dark Knight Rises’ first traditional one sheet movie poster this badly? It just looks like they took two different posters and merged them together. Where’s the artistry in this poster? I think what throws off this image the most is the two different perspectives. Batman is looking straight at you while the background makes gives off the appearance you’re looking up. Instead of being a cool “special effect,” it’s kinda giving me a headache. Hopefully the movie doesn’t induce vertigo as well.

The Dark Knight premieres in theaters everywhere on July 20, 2012.

Copter Girl Custom Munny by Huck Gee

Copter Girl Custom Munny Vinyl Figure by Huck Gee

Earlier this week Huck Gee released his companion piece to last month’s Copter Boy Munny custom, and it’s entitled, appropriately enough, Copter Girl! Now don’t let Copter Girl’s cute demeanor fool you. Copter Boy’s equally talented, tough as nails, troublemaking younger sister was often the ringleader in their mischievous endeavors. Not to be content with simply dodging chores, she would perch herself on a nearby window ledge, fresh apple in hand, to gloat her nimble charms and favored position over her toiling brother.

Copter Girl Custom Munny Vinyl Figure by Huck Gee

Each Copter Girl custom Munny comes signed and numbered by the artist, includes all of the accessories show here, and will be packaged in a padded, hand assembled and laser etched wooden box. 10 Copter Girls were created in all, with each figure retailing for $875. To reserve one of these hand painted, hand crafted vinyl figures email sales@huckgee.com immediately, because once these Copter Girls fly out of Huck’s studios they’ll never been seen again!

Breaking Bad Screen Print #5 - Saul Goodman by Chris DeLorenzo

Breaking Gifs Limited Edition Breaking Bad Screen Prints - Saul Goodman by Chris DeLorenzo

Saul Goodman” by Chris DeLorenzo is the fifth screen print in the Breaking Bad Alternate Reality Game Series released in honor of the hit AMC television show Breaking Bad’s fifth and final season. Bob Odenkirk steals ever scene he's in as Walter White’s shady attorney Saul Goodman, causing Saul to quickly become a Breaking Bad fan favorite. What could have easily been a throwaway guest starring role quickly evolved into an multifaceted and intriguing character. Without a doubt one of the smartest things Breaking Bad did was making Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman a permanent cast member in Season 3.

Chris DeLorenzo’s limited edition Breaking Bad screen print “Saul Goodman” measures 18”x24”, has a run size of 300 pieces (only 200 available for purchase) and comes hand signed and numbered by the artist. The print will retail for $50 each and can be purchased here.

To celebrate and honor the fifth and final season of Breaking Bad, 16 of the top artists and graphic designers have been commissioned to create screenprints depicting some of the series' most memorable scenes, characters and shocking moments for Gallery1988 and its Breaking Bad ARG, Breaking Gifs. These screenprints are hand-pulled, each its own individual work of art, in an edition of just 300, with only 200 available to the public through this project. Once the edition is sold out, they will never be printed again.

The Walking Dead First Look: Danai Gurira as Michonne

The Walking Dead First Look: Danai Gurira as Michonne

Last week Entertainment Weekly gave the world its first look as Danai Gurira as Michonne, the sword wielding bad ass of The Walking Dead! The Blot’s trying super hard not to read any spoilers about The Walking Dead’s third season on AMC, but anyone who’s read the first 50 or so issues of The Walking Dead comic book series know the season’s general storyline. Needless to say, things will not be going smoothly for Michonne in Season 3. Then again, does anything really ever go smoothly for Rick’s little band of survivors? So now that you’ve seen Gurira’s live action Michonne, what do you think?

The Walking Dead Season 3 is scheduled to air on AMC Sunday nights beginning October 2012.

Gotham Rogues Hines Ward The Dark Knight Rises Figure by McFarlane Toys

Gotham Rogues Hines Ward The Dark Knight Rises 6 Inch Action Figure by McFarlane Toys

Did you know McFarlane Toys has never produced a Batman toy before? Well, I guess technically it still hasn’t! But McFarlane Toys is teaming up with Warner Bros. and DC Comics to release what might be the coolest The Dark Knight Rises toy of the summer. McFarlane Toys is releasing a “Gotham Rogues” Hines Ward figure, which recreates the former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and future NFL Hall of Famer’s role in the film. The Gotham Rogues are Gotham City’s professional football franchise, and you probably recognize this pose from The Dark Knight Rises’ first trailer where as Ward runs down the field scoring a touchdown, Bane sets off a bomb collapsing the rest of the field around him.

Gotham Rogues Hines Ward The Dark Knight Rises 6 Inch Action Figure in Packaging by McFarlane Toys

The Gotham Rogues Hines Ward figure is clad in the Rogues’ black and yellow uniform created specifically by Under Armour for The Dark Knight Rises, and even features the actual tattoo Ward has on his right arm. Each 6” figure includes an enhanced base that features The Dark Knight Rises logo and comes packaged in a movie themed full color window box. This may also be the last action figure of the now retired 2 time Super Bowl champion and Dancing with the Stars champion, making this The Dark Knight Rises toy even more collectible!

While not expected to hit store shelves until October 2012, you can pre-order The Dark Knight Rises Gotham Rogues Hines Ward action figure by McFarlane Toys from Entertainment Earth for $12.99 here.

The Dark Knight Rises Theatrical Movie Banner Set 2 - Tom Hardy as Bane

With G.I. Joe: Retaliation postponed until 2013 and The Avengers already seen by the entire world, it is now all Batman all the time for the rest of the summer (sorry Spidey). Warner Bros. clearly knows it needs a huge build up if The Dark Knight Rises is going to have any chance at being the summer movie of 2012, and has decided to bombard us with theatrical movie banners. Some are actually pretty cool, while others are the definition of “meh.” Why is it so difficult to make Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman look cool?

There actually appears to be at least three different sets of The Dark Knight Rises movie banners here, with each set featuring Batman, Bane and Catwoman predominately. With that being said, none of the sets were impressive enough to warrant their own blog post. So The Blot figured I’d just cram this one with nine one sheets. Which one is your favorite?

Off “Rejects of Eternia” Bootleg Masters of the Universe Action Figure by Giant Japanese Monster, Bad! - Bronze & Silver Colorways

For the past few years Giant Japanese Monster, Bad! (Facebook, Flickr) has been producing some awesome bootleg, kitbashed Masters of the Universe action figures. The Blot’s never been able to score one of these “Rejects of Eternia” figures, but I spent many a night drooling over his He-Man and Merman bootlegs. Thankfully, it looks like I will finally be able to get my hands on one with the release of Off! Off is comprised of a Buzz-Off body and wings with a Skeletor head and a mystery left arm. Each hand cast resin figure features three points of articulation (both arms and wings), and comes in a variety of colors and tints.

Right now Giant Japanese Monster, Bad! has seven different colorways of Off available for purchase at his online store. The unpainted Silver and Bronze Off figures retail for $40, while the airbrushed Fire and Ice colorways and Glow in the Dark figures retail for $50 each.

Wayfarer 515” by Justin Santora is the fourth screen print in the Breaking Bad Alternate Reality Game Series released in honor of the hit AMC television show Breaking Bad’s fifth and final season. I would love to try and explain this print’s significance, but honestly it’s kind of a long story. Needless to say, it’s definitely an important moment in the show’s history and is connected to many Breaking Bad storylines. It’s amazing how serene Santora has made such a terrible event look.

It’s rare that The Blot gets totally taken by surprise with a release these days, but I honestly did not expect a line of Funko Pop!

The Amazing Spider-Man International Character Movie Posters

The Amazing Spider-Man International Character Movie Posters - Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man

The Blot was really hoping for more from The Amazing Spider-Man’s first set of character movie posters. These generic headshots are ok, I guess, but they could have been so much more. While I still think ASM will be good, I fear it’s a little too over exposed. After all the trailers and previews, I get the impression I’ve already seen pretty much the entire movie. Is there really anything else to be gained by seeing it in theaters?

The Amazing Spider-Man International Character Movie Posters - Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy

The Amazing Spider-Man international character movie poster set includes Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man/Peter Parker, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors (aka The Lizard). The one thing that could have really made this set pop is if they had used an image of Ifans as the Lizard, but maybe that’s where they’re drawing the arbitrary line of what is and what is not ok to show. That’s kind of weird though, since the Lizard is now visible in the latest round of trailers for the film.

Oven Fresh Dreams x Miguel Abreu Collaborate & Dream T-Shirt “The Shinigami Baker”

The eighth installment in the "Collaborate & Dream" t-shirt series from Oven Fresh Dreams went up for sale last weekend and The Blot’s buddy (and OFD founder) Carlos J. EasyBake knocked one out of the park again! “The Shinigami Baker” was designed by Miguel Abreu, a talented graphic designer will a real knack for detail. As Carlos explained on his website, “comics have always been my gateway to live with superheroes. When I passed the idea of creating a comic cover shirt to Miguel he flipped. We both geeked out and got down to business. After a few weeks of comic research, we came up with The Shinigami Baker!”

As a huge comic book fan The Blot is really digging the newest Collaborate & Dream design. There’s something about this image that gives off that R. Crumb "Keep on Truckin" vibe that I really love. The Oven Fresh Dreams x Miguel Abreu Collaborate & Dream t-shirt “The Shinigami Baker” is currently available for purchase via the OFD online store for $24.99.

The Dark Knight Rises “The Legend Ends” Character Movie Poster Set - Christian Bale as Batman

For some reason The Dark Knight Rises dropped not one but two sets of character movie posters yesterday (see the “RISE” set here). The Blot’s got no idea why they wouldn’t space them out a little better, but I’m just glad they’re finally releasing some one sheet movie posters. Sadly this “The Legend Ends” set is nowhere near as good as first set of character movie posters. I do like Christian Bale’s Batman poster, but the Bane (Tom Hardy) and Catowman (Anne Hathaway) look too much like still photos taken directly from the movie. Where’s the creativity!?!

Now that The Avengers has come and gone, it feels like the summer is going to be all Batman all the time! Sorry Amazing Spider-Man, but that’s the pecking order…you shouldn’t have shown us the entire movie in your trailers.

The Dark Knight Rises “RISE” Character Movie Poster Set - Tom Hardy as Bane

Each character movie poster features one of the film’s main three characters (Christian Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane and Hathaway as Catwoman), the word “RISE” at the top, and the ominous phrase “The Legend Ends” at the bottom. This just fuels the speculation that Batman will finally meet his demise at the end of The Dark Knight Rises. The Blot doesn’t buy it though!

Here is the official flyer (and our first look at four all new figures) for Task One’s upcoming solo art exhibit at Plastic Chapel in Denver entitled “As Seen On TV”, which will feature custom 8” Munny versions of characters from what Task considers to be some of the best shows on or recently on TV. Last week The Blot was excited to share with you the first two figures from this show Sons of Anarchy’s Clay Marrow and Breaking Bad’s Walter White (seen here).

Wooden Bender Futurama Vinyl Figure by Kidrobot

So I have a confession…I haven’t watched Futurama in a very, very long time. Probably close to ten years. So I have to ask, what’s the deal with this new 6” Wooden Bender? Is this from an actual episode or is Kidrobot just trying something different? Complete with removable red woodpecker and “technology-free” stumpy head and body, Wooden Bender is 6 inches tall and designed with the Kidrobot aesthetic twist, making this primitive vinyl ‘bot feisty and termite-free.

The Wooden Bender Futurama vinyl figure ($50) wages his war on technology beginning Thursday, June 7th, at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers worldwide.

The Avengers Print by kaNO

The Avengers Series by kaNO - Captain America, Iron Man, Thor & Hulk Paintings

All last week The Blot was fervently following kaNO’s Facebook page as he was unveiling a series of four 8”x8” acrylic and wheatpaste paintings of the Avengers! Inspired by Marvel's hit summer blockbuster The Avengers, each painting features one member of the team: Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the Hulk. What’s really great about these pieces is how kaNO painted each hero on top of actual comic book pages featuring that specific character. These turned out fantastic, and The Blot would absolutely kill to get my hands on this set of paintings (or even just the Captain America piece).

The Avengers Print by kaNO - Captain America, Iron Man, Thor & Hulk

Because of the amazing response kaNO has received to this series of paintings, he has decided to release "The Avengers" as one killer 20”x20” giclee on archival paper. The Avengers print by kaNO will have a limited edition run size of 20 pieces and can be purchased exclusive from the kaNO Kid online store sometime soon for $45 each.
