First Look: Breaking Bad Vannen Watch by Tristan Eaton

First Look: Breaking Gifs x Vannen Breaking Bad Watch by Tristan Eaton

As you all probably know, The Blot is obsessed with AMC’s Breaking Bad! So when Breaking Gifs, the Breaking Bad Alternate Reality Game, gave away 7 Breaking Bad themed Vannen watches yesterday at this week’s print reveal, The Blot got excited. I knew there was no way Vannen only made 7 of these awesome watches. Thankfully a few hours later my hunch was confirmed when we learned Vannen would be releasing this Breaking Bad themed watch designed by legendary artist and toy designer Tristan Eaton sometime soon! 

Breaking Gifs x Vannen Breaking Bad Watch by Tristan Eaton Teaser Image

If you were wondering how this watch ties into Breaking Bad, it’s actually based on one of the show’s most suspenseful episodes “Fly” from Season 3. In that episode Walter becomes obsessed that his superlab had been contaminated when a fly starts buzzing around. Walter is fearful that somehow air is getting in from Gus’ laundry mat cover business, Lavanderia Brillante, which the superlab is hidden beneath.  This explains why the Lavanderia Brillante logo and fly is on the watch's face. The Breaking Gifs x Vannen Breaking Bad watch deisgned by Tristan Eaten will be released soon, so keep your eyes peeled to TheBlotSays.com for more information!

Breaking Bad Screen Print #14 - The White Residence by Mark Englert

Breaking Gifs Limited Edition Breaking Bad Screen Prints - The White Residence by Mark Englert

The White Residence” by Mark Englert is the fourteenth 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. Mark Englert has been producing some killer prints as of late, and this one is equally as stunning! Sadly, I just don’t see the appeal of having Walter White’s home on your wall. 

Nevertheless, this is a pretty awesome print that sold out instantly upon release.
Mark Englert’s limited edition Breaking Bad screen print “The White Residence” measures 36”x12”, has a run size of 300 pieces (only 200 available for purchase) and comes hand signed and numbered by the artist. The print retailed for $60 each and could have been purchased here before it sold out.

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.

Celebration VI Exclusive Lando Calrissian 12” Jumbo Vintage Kenner Star Wars Action Figure by Gentle Giant

Star Wars Celebration VI Exclusive Lando Calrissian 12” Jumbo Vintage Kenner Star Wars Action Figure by Gentle Giant

Gentle Giant is finally releasing the 12” Jumbo Kenner Star Wars action figure The Blot’s been waiting for…Lando Calrissain! But as always there’s a catch. Gentle Giant will be releasing this dashing figure exclusively at Star Wars Celebration VI next month. After Boba Fett, Billy Dee Williams’ Lando Calrissian has always been my favorite Star Wars character and I’m excited to see him included in Gentle Giant’s line of jumbo action figures. Every figure in this series has been digitally scanned from mint 3.75” Kenner originals and reproduced to a substantial 12" tall, meaning this Jumbo Vintage Kenner Star Wars Lando Calrissian action figure is an exact replica of the classic ‘80s toy.

Injection molded and made of durable plastics, this jumbo figure includes a faithfully reproduced vinyl cape and blaster, is fully articulated, and comes packaged on a 1981 style Empire Strikes Back inspired blister card with a plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display this awesome action figure.

The Star Wars 12 inch Jumbo Vintage Kenner Lando Calrissian action figure by Gentle Giant retails for $75 each and can be purchased exclusively at Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando, Florida August 23-26, 2012.

The Blot’s gotta be honest here, I don’t exactly understand the nuance of Medicom's release of its new Marvel Universe Be@rbrick Series, which includes the comic book versions of your favorite Marvel heroes and villains. From what I can tell, this series is exclusive to Happy Kuji, a new chain of stores in Japan where everything sold by the luck of the draw. Evidently every customer is able to buy a kuji (or lucky draw ticket), and they are guaranteed to win something.

Medicom x Happy Kuji Marvel Universe 100% Be@rbrick Series - Hawkeye, Avengers Logo, SHIELD Logo, Wolverine (Yellow), Iceman, Jean Grey, Storm, Wolverine (Brown), Magneto, Cyclops, X-Men Logo, The Thing, Invisible Woman, Marvel Logo (Red) & Marvel Logo (Black)

For the Medicom x Happy Kuji Marvel Universe Be@rbrick Series each draw is 500 yen and the prizes are a combination box sets, which include themed sets featuring Spider-Man, The Avengers, The X-Men, the Fantastic Four and a Marvel Logo Set. You could also win a 400% Spider-Man Be@rbrick and a super rare Metallic Black Suit Spider-Man 100% Be@rbrick.

Medicom x Happy Kuji Marvel Universe Be@rbrick Series - Black Suit Spider-Man 100% Be@rbrick & Spider-Man 400% Be@rbrick

My only question is, with a system like this how impossible is it to complete the series? Maybe a Japanese collector can explain this system to us in greater detail! The Marvel Universe Be@rbrick Series includes the following 100% Be@rbricks: Spider-Man, Translucent Spider-Man, Scarlet Spider, Venom, Green Goblin, Spider-Man Logo, Iron Man, War Machine, Black Widow, Captain America, Red Skull, Thor, Loki, Hulk, Nick Fury, Hawkeye, Avengers Logo, SHIELD Logo, Wolverine (Yellow), Iceman, Jean Grey, Storm, Wolverine (Brown), Magneto, Cyclops, X-Men Logo, The Thing, Invisible Woman, Marvel Logo (Red) and Marvel Logo (Black).

Kidrobot - 8 Deadly Sins Labbit Mini Series by Kronk

This blind box series definitely includes Greed, Lust, Pride, Wrath, Gluttony, Sloth, Envy and Dejection Labbits, but The Blot is hoping for at least one surprise chase figure. It wouldn’t be a Kidrobot blind box series without one!

Task One constantly blows me away with his inventive custom work. No matter what platform he’s working with, he’s bringing something new and exciting to the game. For this continuing custom Dunny Town Series, Task One was inspired by buildings and architecture. This sounds like a pretty cool and ambitious concept for a 3” platform custom series.

SDCC 12 Recap: Guardians of the Galaxy Movie News!

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Logo

Of all the really big announcements out of San Diego Comic-Con 2012, the only one that really got The Blot excited was Marvel’s confirmation of a Guardians of the Galaxy live action film in 2014! Not only that, but it would feature the modern version of the team that formed in 2008. In the past 5-10 years there have only two Marvel comic books I have read on a consistent basis, Peter David’s X-Factor and Guardians of the Galaxy. Both teams feature a huge cast of B, C and D-list characters that normally wouldn’t get their own books, but for some reason as a team they just click.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Concept Artwork

So obviously when rumors started swirling earlier this summer that Marvel would be releasing a GotG film, The Blot’s ears perked up! Created by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, this version of the Guardians of the Galaxy came together as a space-age dirty dozen who took on impossible tasks during two intergalactic wars and took on heavy casualties. What emerged were the Guardians of the Galaxy! They’ve had up to 13 members at once, but the film will be focusing on the team’s primary five members: Star-Lord (Peter Quill), Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon and Groot!

That gives us two green aliens, a humanoid raccoon and a tree like creature that speaks only its name “Groot!” Not exactly a made of the movies roster, but trust me it’s going to be awesome with lots and lots of fighting! Just check out the concept artwork for the team above. While we still don’t know anything about the film, I’d be willing to be the movie’s big bad is the mad Titan himself, Thanos! I’m just hoping we get cameos by Nova and Adam Warlock at some point.

Guardians of the Galaxy is set to invade theaters everywhere on August 1, 2014.

Troy Stith x Max Toy Co's New Figure Yuudoku! On Sale Tomorrow!

Troy Stith x Max Toy Co Blue Unpainted Yuudoku Vinyl Figure

The Blot’s excited to announce that Yuudoku, Troy Stith’s first original production figure, will be released this Friday, July 27th at the Max Toy Company online store! After a year of hard work by Troy and Max Toy Co, Yuudoku is finally ready for his world debut. The first colorway of this toxic monster will be a striking unpainted blue, and will retail for just $20 each. Yuudoku stands 3.5” tall, features 3 points of articulation (at the waist and tentacles), and each figure sports a randomly inserted eye. The Blot’s especially looking forward to seeing this bad boy painted! And keep an eye on Troy’s blog because there will definitely be some one-offs and a couple of small Yuudoku runs released by him soon.

Yuudoku’s Story: Born off the Coast of Kikorman Island, Yuudoku lived a happy life among the reefs in the crystal blue waters. He enjoyed being surrounded by his friends and providing housing for them and their kin. All of that changed when greedy tankers began dumping toxic waste into the pristine waters. While no one knew these dastardly deeds were being committed, the results began to change and warp the once pure waters of Kikorman Bay. Left with the choice of fleeing to cleaner waters or death, Yuudoku’s friends began to disappear. The tankers eventually moved on to spread their filth elsewhere, but Yuudoku’s friends still fled. It wasn’t the boats that they were afraid of anymore, it was him. Yuudoku had mutated into a hulking tentacled beast. His body that was once a home had become a poisonous wasteland. Plumes of toxins spewed from his back, making it impossible for his friends to be close to him without endangering their lives. He found himself alone; radiating with angry despair. Yuudoku vowed revenge against those who brought this dismal fate upon him.

Street Fighter x Sanrio T-Shirt Collection

Street Fighter x Sanrio T-Shirt Collection - Hello Kitty as Chun-Li & Badtz-Maru as Ryu

Capcom must be doing something right, because Street Fighter is all the rage again! It seems like everyone wants to team up with these world warriors. I know the franchise has always been one of the video game world’s favorites, but it feels like the property has finally regained its prominence within American pop culture and beyond. Just take this new line of Street Fighter x Sanrio t-shirts released in conjunction with their new line of plush figures.

Street Fighter x Sanrio T-Shirt Collection - Hangyodon as Guile & Keroppi as Blanka

The Street Fighter x Sanrio T-Shirt Collection features Sanrio’s popular characters, including Hello Kitty, Badtz-Maru and My Melody, dressed as the international fighters from Street Fighter II. It’s a simple concept that juxtaposes the cuteness of Sanrio’s characters with rough and deadly looks of some of Street Fighter’s most popular warriors. While The Blot’s not really a fan of Sanrio, it works really well!

The Amazing Spider-Man Cosbaby 2-Pack by Hot Toys

The Amazing Spider-Man Cosbaby 2-Pack by Hot Toys - Peter Parker & Spider-Man

In conjunction with this summer’s hit movie The Amazing Spider-Man, Hot Toys has released this Cosbaby two figure set that includes Spider-Man and Peter Parker, which is really more of an “Unmasked Spider-Man” than it is a Peter Parker figure. To be honest, The Blot’s pretty disappointed in this release. Hot Toys usually does an amazing job with its character selection, and when I first heard about this Amazing Spider-Man 2-pack I assumed it would include Spider-Man and the Lizard. If you’re only going to release two figures from a super hero movie it really needs to be the hero and villain, right? Who wants two of basically same toy? To me it looks like Hot Toys took the easy way out by choosing two characters where they could just use the same exact body twice.

There were actually two The Amazing Spider-Man Cosbaby 2-Packs created, the Regular Version and a Battle Damage Version, which includes a scarred Peter Parker face and a slightly darker blue Spider-Man costume. Each The Amazing Spider-Man Cosbaby vinyl figure stands 3” tall, includes multiple points of articulation and features your favorite movie characters in baby form. Expect this Hot Toys x Marvel Comics collaboration in stores everywhere.

This is a really unique experience, as New Era has never offered access like this to the public. Not only that, but New Era will be posting pictures, answering questions and offering an inside look at how the fitted hat is perfected all from their facility in Derby, NY. This is a great opportunity for diehard New Era fans, sneakerheads and t-shirt aficionados to go behind the scenes with New Era like never before!

The Dark Knight Rises x Under Armour Gotham Rogues Collection

The Dark Knight Rises x Under Armour Gotham Rogues Collection - T-Shirts, Varsity Jacket & Crewneck

In what has to be one of the most interesting/random movie tie-ins, Under Armour has released an entire line of Gotham Rogues clothing based on the fictitious professional football team in The Dark Knight Rises. The one scene featuring the Gotham Rogues in TDKR is pretty freaking cool, and Under Armour’s logo is featured prominently on their uniforms, but is anyone really clamoring for these t-shirts, hoodies and hats? I think I’d be more inclined to like this clothing line if it the designs were a little cooler and had some reference to Batman and/or The Dark Knight Rises on them.

The Dark Knight Rises x Under Armour Gotham Rogues Collection - Football Jersey, Hoody & Fleece Hoody

The Dark Knight Rises x Under Armour Gotham Rogues Collection - Snapback Adjustable Hats

The Dark Knight Rises x Under Armour Gotham Rogues Collection includes, vintage-style mens and womens t-shirts, adjustable snapback hats, hoodies, a varsity jacket and even a movie authentic Gotham Rogues jersey. To The Blot, the jersey is definitely the coolest piece in this release…too bad it’s $199.99! All of the clothing and hats seen here are currently available for sale at the Under Armour online store and retails for between $29.99-$199.99.

Man of Steel Teaser Movie Poster & Trailers

Man of Steel Teaser Theatrical One Sheet Movie Poster

Everyone seems to be going gaga over this Man of Steel teaser poster from San Diego Comic-Con 2012, and the film’s teaser trailers which debuted before The Dark Knight Rises. But honestly, neither really blow me away. The Blot likes that they tried to do something different with the teaser trailer and the poster does a good job showcasing Superman’s new suit, but I’d still be willing to bed money this film stinks. Nothing Warner Bros or DC Comics has done has shown me they know how to produce a kick ass super hero film not directed by Christopher Nolan.


Don’t get me wrong, I love Zack Snyder and they did the smart thing by keeping Nolan involved. But it’s not like Snyder’s last two live action films, Watchmen and Sucker Punch, were critical or commercial successes. Maybe I’m just bitter at how horribly mistreated the Superman franchise has been for the past 20 years, but this film better be freaking amazing! And I better not hear one peep about a Justice League movie if Man of Steel is not HUGE next summer.


Man of Steel swoops into theaters on June 14, 2013.

Mutant Jawa Bootleg Resin Figures by Killer Bootlegs

Killer Bootlegs is always working hard on perfecting new kitbashed resin figures, and their newest Star Wars inspired release will be released gorilla style at Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con in just a few short weeks. It is made from a vintage Jawa and a vintage Yoda mashed together to create the feared Mutant Jawa! What’s even cooler is Killer Bootlegs decided to give this little monster a bootleg vinyl cape, which definitely adds to the awesomeness of the figure by giving it a sense of nostalgia.

Ok, so here’s the really awesome part of this release: Killer Bootlegs will be crashing Chicago Comic-Con and handing out 100 FREE Mutant Jawas, most of which will be random one off colorways and clear variants! Yeah, it doesn’t get better than free does it!?! Each figure will come bagged with a Wizard World Chicago Exclusive header. There’s no booth associated with this release, so if you’re at WW Chicago August 9-12 keep an eye out toy fiends repping Killer Bootleg gear!

Smoke Edition & Grape Edition Resin Mini Mad'ls by MAD

Smoke Edition Resin Mini Mad'l by MAD

While I was out of town earlier this month MAD dropped not one but two new colorways of his extremely popular 3” resin Mini Mad’ls. I'm sad to admit between that two week trip and San Diego Comic-Con 2012 coverage, I'm still playing catch up. The seventh colorway was this beautiful grey tint Smoke Edition Mini Mad’l, while the eighth colorway was this rich and regal purple Grape Edition Mini Mad’l.

Grape Edition Resin Mini Mad'l by MAD

Only 20 figures of each colorway were created, with the entire run sold exclusively at MAD’s online store for $50 each. Every figure comes packaged in a custom gift box, which includes a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity. Unfortunately for The Blot, each colorway sold out immediately upon release. The only question now is what color is coming up next!?!
