The third colorway of Freak Store’s Fonzo vinyl figure has been announced, and it’s this awesome San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive Glow in the Dark colorway! The Blot’s a sucker for GID vinyl, and combine that with Gary Ham’s fun design and you’ve got a must get at this summer’s preeminent pop culture extravaganza. This 6” figure, based on Freak Store’s pet French bulldog Fonzo and designed by Ham, has a limited edition run size of 100 figures and can be purchased exclusively at Gary’s SDCC booth #4836. While you’re there, you can also get Gary to sign the figure for you.

Mimoco announced its newest collaboration this week and it’s HUGE! Not only are they teaming up with the Cartoon Network to release the Adventure Time x Mimobot Designer USB Flashdrive Collection, but they are also releasing an extremely rare Fionna Adventure Time Mimobot at San Diego Comic-Con 2012. So now, instead of transporting your super-important data on a boring old flash drive, you can bring your data with you on an amazing adventure with a Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum, or Fionna Mimobot! 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.
Finn, Adventure Time’s main man, is beyond just a kid and the Finn Mimobot is beyond just another flash drive. Armed with his awesome hat, backpack and sword, there is no evil too scary for him to face, no adventure too big to be adventured, and for the Finn Mimobot, no file too important. 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.
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.
Fionna Mimobot is just as big an adventurer as the Finn Mimobot, without all that stupid boy stuff! Her awesome hat has bunny ears, her sword is pink, her hair is long, and her adventures are huge! So she’s not available yet, but Fionna Mimobot will join her Adventure Time x Mimbot Collection friends this July at SDCC!
The San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive Fionna Mimobot has a limited edition run size of just 500 pieces and can be purchased at Mimoco's SDCC booth #4936-4938 and at the Star Wars Pavillion Booth #2913m starting at $14.99. If you can’t make it to SDCC, Mimoco is compiling a waiting list for any unsold inventory. The remaining Mimobots will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis to those who register for the waiting list by emailing SDCC@mimoco.com and reference the design you’d like to reserve in the subject of your email.
Erick Scarecrow always has the coolest convention exclusives and this year is no different! Check out his San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive Gold Daibutsu, which you can only buy at DKE Toys’ booth #4728 on Thursday, July 12th, at 12pm. This 7” tall figure has a limited edition run size of 18 pieces and will retail for $140. ESC Toy fans are pretty diehard, so expect these shiny figures to go extremely quickly! The Blot loves this particular colorway of Daibutsu. It's almost like this resin figure was made to be produced in shiny gold! Just keep your eyes open in case a man wearing a fur felt hat and bullwhip comes eying your collection.
“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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
