SDCC 12 Exclusive Chew: Secret Agent Poyo #1 Metallic Foil Variant Cover

San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive Chew: Secret Agent Poyo #1 Metallic Foil Variant Cover by Rob Guillory

Chew, by John Layman and Rob Guillory, has quickly become one of The Blot’s favorite comic books. I love pretty much everything about this book, and if you haven’t read it yet go pick up the first trade ASAP! If you are reading Chew, then you’ll be excited to know that in just a few weeks Image Comics will be releasing a Chew one shot featuring the book’s most popular supporting character, and comic’s most beloved homicidal cybernetic kung-fu rooster, Poyo!

What I especially love about this one shot is that Image will be releasing a San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive Pink Metallic Foil Variant Cover for it. It’s the ‘90s all over again, and I love it! There was a time when every comic released had a die cut, hologram or metallic foil cover and The Blot ate it up. Thankfully that trend died a quick death, but every once in a while it’s nice to have it rear its ugly head again. It really is so bad it’s good! The fun SDCC Variant can be purchased exclusively at the Image Comics SDCC booth for $10 each.

SDCC 12 Exclusive “This Is Your Brain” Custom Mini Jumping Brain Vinyl Figures by Mikie Graham

San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive “This Is Your Brain” Custom Mini Jumping Brain Vinyl Figures by Mikie Graham

For San Diego Comic-Con 2012, Mikie Graham has created a small run of custom Mini Jumping Brain vinyl figures entitled "This Is Your Brain." As you can see in the photo below, Mikie has crafted a miniature recreation of the 80's anti-drug scare ad "Your Brain On Drugs" using Emilio Garcia's mini jumping brain figures! How cool is that? Playing with the shape of the mini figure, Mikie used clear resin and a little hand painted detail to make the vinyl figures resemble a sunny-side up egg. Finishing off the scale illusion, Mikie found miniature cast iron frying pans that perfectly fit his mini fried eggs.

San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive “This Is Your Brain” Custom Mini Jumping Brain Vinyl Figure Teaser Image by Mikie Graham

Mikie will have 10 of his San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive “This Is Your Brain” Custom Mini Jumping Brains for sale at Dragatomi's SDCC booth #4935, starting on Preview night, for only $45.

SDCC 12 Exclusive Blue Snaggletooth 12” Jumbo Vintage Kenner Star Wars Action Figure by Gentle Giant

San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive Blue Snaggletooth 12 Inch Jumbo Vintage Kenner Star Wars Action Figure by Gentle Giant

Just like they were when you were a kid, only BIGGER! As they have for the past two years, Gentle Giant will be releasing a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive figure from its popular line of 12 inch vintage Star Wars action figure reproductions. This year’s SDCC exclusive is a reproduction of the extremely rare “blue” Snaggletooth from 1978. Released as part of the Sears “Star Wars Cantina Adventure Set,” the Snaggletooth figure was intended to represent the character who would later be known as Zutton. However, the only reference used for the figure was a partial black and white photograph of the alien’s head. The body was unknown, so the sculptors and artists improvised, creating a tall alien with a tight blue spacesuit and silver boots. From 1979 onward, including later Sears releases of the cantina set, all versions of Snaggletooth were changed to a red color, with bare feet and hands and shorter legs (seen here).

Digitally scanned from mint Kenner originals and reproduced to a substantial 12" tall, this Jumbo Vintage Kenner Star Wars Blue Snaggletooth 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 faithfully reproduced blaster, is fully articulated and comes packaged on a 1977 style Star Wars inspired blister card with a plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this awesome action figure.

The San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive Star Wars 12 inch Jumbo Vintage Kenner Blue Snaggletooth action figure by Gentle Giant has a limited edition run size of 2,000 pieces, and will retail for $80 exclusively at Gentle Giant’s SDCC booth.

B&W The Beatles Pop! Rocks “Color Reject” Set by Funko

Black and White The Beatles Pop! Rocks “Color Reject” Set Vinyl Figures by Funko - John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr & the Blue Meanie

Any time I’m in the market for the rarest of the rare Funko releases, my first stop is always Gemini Collectibles. Sometimes I don’t even know what I’m looking for. The perfect example of that is this Black and White “Color Reject” Set of Funko’s The Beatles Pop! Rocks Yellow Submarine figures. I didn’t even know these existed!

According to Gemini Collectibles, these black and white figures were supposed to be a Gemini store exclusive. Originally, Funko was given the green light to produce these figures by the licenser and 10 sample sets were created. But before they were submitted to the licenser for approval, the licenser changed their mind and the project was scratched. 9 of these 10 sets are now available for purchase. Each box comes hand signed and numbered by Funko's Brian Mariotti on its bottom with the words "color reject" (which had to be written on the box).

This extremely rare Black and White “Color Reject” Beatles Pop! Rocks Yellow Submarine Set includes five figures: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr and the Blue Meanie and can be purchased exclusively at the Gemini Collectibles online store for $1,375 (per set).

This year’s release is Target, a brand new vinyl figure based on Luke’s classic painting of the same name. This two piece set includes a 6.5” vinyl bear with a 10.5” resin bullet-ridden backdrop. What’s really beautiful about this piece is how the highly detailed resin base contrasts with the minimalist aesthetic of Luke's iconic bear. Each Target vinyl figure includes a removable brush and bucket, and comes packaged in a box featuring Luke's revisit of his original illustration. What The Blot really loves about this piece is that the backdrops were designed to interlock with one another, so if you decide to purchase future Target colorways you can create your own deadly Luke Chueh diorama.


The San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive Target vinyl figure by Luke Chueh and Munky King has a limited edition run size of 250 pieces and will retail for $140.

Each comes preloaded with awesome Adventure Time content (like full episodes of the show) and all available in a range of 4GB to 64 GB memory capacities starting at just $14.99.

Oh yeah, and when you whip Finn Mimobot out, everyone will know that you are King Awesome.

Jake loves Finn. But Adventure Time’s Jake is not your average dog…he’s stretchy too! The Jake Mimobot can be just as loyal and loving a friend, and is just as flexible. Jake Mimobot is there in a pinch and will proclaim to your friends and coworkers that yes, you love Adventure Time, and no, you will not let them down.

Adventure Time x Mimobot USB Flashdrive Collection - Princess Bubblegum

Princess Bubblegum is the ruler of the Candy Kingdom and, sometimes, the ruler of Finn’s heart. But just because she’s fickle in love doesn’t mean she doesn’t care. Princess Bubblegum will always be there to help Finn, just as the Princess Bubblegum Mimobot will be at your side, in your pocket, or sitting next to your computer, ready to store and transport your documents, pics, music, and more within her cute, pink, and candytastic Mimo-shell.

Breaking Bad Screen Print #8 - The Mexican Shootout by Rich Kelly

Breaking Gifs Limited Edition Breaking Bad Screen Prints - The Mexican Shootout by Rich Kelly

The Mexican Shootout” by Rich Kelly is the eight 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. This print depicts one of the coolest scenes in the history of Breaking Bad, and that’s saying a lot! While I love this image of Jesse, Gus and Mike, I’m not so sure how well it works as a print. Yes the coloring is amazing, but is this really an image you’d want on your wall?

Rich Kelly’s limited edition Breaking Bad screen print “The Mexican Shootout” 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.

Savage Dragon Skateboard by Freak Show & Erik Larsen

Freak Show Longbox Skateboard Series - Savage Dragon Skate Deck by Erik Larsen

As you may or may not know, The Blot is a gigantic Savage Dragon fan! I’ve been reading Erik Larsen’s long running comic book since the very first issue was released back in 1992, which means I’ve now been reading the Image comic for well over half of my life. So when Illinois skateboard company Freak Show (Facebook) announced earlier this week that it was launching its new line of comic book themed Longbox skateboards with a Savage Dragon skate deck I got really excited! While I’ve never been much of a skateboarder, I am seriously tempted to pick up one of these beautiful decks to add to my Dragon collection. Wouldn’t it look sick with a Savage Dragon doodle on it by Larsen!?!

While I haven’t been able to find out too much information on the company itself, I did learn the Savage Dragon skateboard is now available for pre-order through Freak Show's online store in three different options: there’s the basic Savage Dragon deck for $54.99, a signed Savage Dragon deck signed by the character’s creator Erik Larsen for $74.99, and a complete working Savage Dragon deck for $149.99. All decks are scheduled to ship the first week of July, and can be purchased at the Freak Show online store or by emailing them at freakshowskateboards@gmail.com.

San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive Marvel Universe The Avengers Helicarrier and Captain America and SHIELD Maria Hill Action Figures by Hasbro

Hasbro is releasing a super-sized Helicarrier at San Diego Comic-Con this summer as a tie-in to hit film The Avengers! Made for Hasbro’s popular line of 3.75” Marvel Universe action figures, this SDCC exclusive will measure over 4 feet long (basically the size of an ironing board) and will feature brand new Joe Quesada artwork on its packaging. This super-sized Helicarrier will also include two special edition Marvel Universe action figures: a brand new version of Captain America and a SHIELD Agent Maria Hill! While The Blot can do without a 4’ vehicle, I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on a Cobie Smulders action figure.

For those of you not attending San Diego Comic-Con this year, don’t worry. Hasbro will be releasing a standard edition version of the SHIELD Helicarrier in stores soon! But, if really want this over foot longer version, then head over to Hasbro’s SDCC booth #3329 where you can pick one up for $129.99.

SDCC 12 Exclusive Bloody Hooded Michonne The Walking Dead Variant Action Figure

San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive Bloody Hooded Michonne The Walking Dead Variant Comic Book Action Figure by McFarlane Toys

If you haven’t been able to tell so far, San Diego Comic-Con 2012 is going to be all about The Walking Dead. The Blot counts at least five Walking Dead SDCC exclusives announced so far! One of those is this comic book edition Bloody Hooded Michonne variant action figure by McFarlane Toys. Standing 6 inches tall, to me this is the definitive Michonne action figure. It even comes in a cool full color blister card featuring artwork by The Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard.
