The Wolf Rider Print by Huck Gee

The Wolf Rider Print by Huck Gee

Yesterday Huck Gee dropped his newest print entitled “The Wolf Rider.” It’s a pretty awesome print that I believe fits into Huck’s Gold Life series. I’m just hoping we see a Wolf Rider custom figure released sometime soon! The Wolf Rider measures 22"x11" (including a 1” white boarder), is printed on fine art watercolor paper (225gs), and comes signed, numbered and gold embossed by the artist. The print has a limited edition run size of 100 pieces and can be purchased now through the Huck Gee online store for $65 each.

"Beneath the masks lie expert warriors, handpicked and rigorously tested by General Shirokuri himself. The wolves they ride are massive, fearsome, wintery beasts with minds as sharp as their claws and teeth. The bond is a lifelong commitment, paired when the wolf is still a suckling pup. They spend the rest of their days together. Eating, training, sleeping, the two become one. There is no distinction between beast and rider once joined in battle, communicating through a complex system of touches, motions and whispers, allowing them to be as effective in the roar of a battlefield as when prowling an enemy on padded paws in a hushed forest." - Chapters of the North, Volume III - Mahotsukai Hoohige

Batman Trexi Vinyl Figure Series by Play Imaginative

Batman Trexi Vinyl Figure Series by Play Imaginative - Urban Legend & DC Originals

Play Imaginative continues its line of DC Comics Trexi figures (originally seen here) with a new series of Batman Trexi! There are four versions of Batman included in this series: DC Originals, Urban Legend, Batman Begins and Dark Knight Rises. Each 2.5” vinyl figure comes with two facial expressions (one on each side of its head), includes a cape (not pictured), and comes packaged in a full color window box. This way you know exactly which version of The Dark Knight you’re getting!

Batman Trexi Vinyl Figure Series by Play Imaginative - Batman Begins & Dark Knight Rises

The Blot loves that they’re mixing comic book versions of Batman with movie versions of the character, and I think with the cape these figures will look really nice. My only issue is the head and how weird the bat ears look on the Trexi platform’s ears. Obviously that’s the only way to do it, but I don’t think the off centered look is a good look for Bruce Wayne. He’s way too prim and proper for that!

The Batman Trexi Series by Play Imaginative is scheduled to hit store shelves sometime in January 2013, and will retail for around $10-15 per figure.

Iron Man Mark VII 1000% Be@rbrick by Medicom

Marvel x Medicom Iron Man Mark VII 1000% Be@rbrick

To coincide with the release of Iron Man 3 next May, Medicom is releasing an Iron Man Mark VII 1000% Be@rbrick! Yes, you read that right...1,000%! That means it’s a 27.5” Be@rbrick of Iron Man featuring his Mark VII armor from the hit motion picture Marvel’s The Avengers. I may be wrong, but this is the first super hero 1000% Be@brick I can remember Medicom ever producing. Maybe there was a Batman or Spider-Man released at some point, but nevertheless it’s pretty damn rare. This just goes to show how far Iron Man has come has a character since Marvel went on their tear of live action summer blockbusters.

The Marvel x Medicom Iron Man Mark VII 1000% Be@rbrick is scheduled to hit store shelves sometime in April 2013 and will retail for around $350 each.

The Blot’s Heading to Wizard World’s New Orleans Comic-Con 2012

Wizard World New Orleans Comic-Con 2012 - Stan Lee and The Cast of The Walking Dead

As we start the final month of 2012, The Blot’s heading to New Orleans on Saturday for my last convention of the year! I’ve had December 1st marked on my calendar for at least the past 8 months. Pretty much the moment I heard Stan Lee was confirmed for New Orleans Comic-Con I knew it’d be my opportunity to finally meet “The Man”, the myth, the legend! When I saw I could book a round trip flight from Houston to NOLA for around 5,000 miles on Southwest my fate was sealed.

I’ve wanted to meet Stan Lee since pretty much forever, but for a number of unfortunate events it’s never happened. And this trip almost didn’t happen either when Stan fell ill and started canceling appearances earlier this fall. Thankfully he’s doing much better and if all goes according to plan I’ll be having my picture taken with him Saturday at 11:30am. Can’t wait to mark this one off my bucket list!

Like with many of Wizard World’s conventions, New Orleans Comic-Con will also feature the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation (albeit this reunion is sans Patrick Stewart and Wil Wheaton). Along with the cast of ST: TNG, Wizard World will be hosting actors Eliza Dushku, The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus, Michael Rooker and Jon Bernthal, WWE Champion CM Punk, Kevin Sorbo, and one of my all time favorite celebrities, Adrianne Curry!

NOCC will also be hosting comic book superstars Greg Capullo, David Mack, Neal Adams, Ethan Van Sciver, Greg Horn and Ron Garney. But the one creator I have to meet this weekend is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman!!! There aren’t many comic creators The Blot gets really excited to meet but Stan Lee and Kevin Eastman in the same room? This is going to be one awesome convention.

It should be a fun event and The Blot will be live tweeting from the convention all day on Satuday, December 1st (unfortunately I can only attend one day). So if you’re not already following me at Twitter.com/TheBlotSays go do so now!

Battle Damaged The Avengers Movie 100% Be@rbrick Set

Marvel x Medicom Battle Damaged The Avengers Movie 100% Be@rbrick 4 Pack - Iron Man, Captain America, Thor & Hulk.jpg

When The Blot heard Medicom was releasing a new The Avengers Movie 100% Be@rbrick 4 Pack I got really excited! Then I found out it’s just a “Battle Damaged” repaint of their previously released The Avengers Be@rbrick Set. What a letdown! I was hoping for a true repaint of one or two of the previously released characters packaged with Be@rbricks of either Loki, Maria Hill or Phil Coulson. It’s a nice looking set, but does anyone need both this and the original release?

The Marvel x Medicom Battle Damaged The Avengers Movie 100% Be@rbrick Set includes roughed up versions of Iron Man (in his Mark VI armor), Captain America, Thor and the Incredible Hulk. This 4 piece set is scheduled to go on sale December 19, 2012 in Japan, and will make its way to the United States shortly thereafter.

Game of Thrones Season 3 Teaser One Sheet Television Poster

The Blot is in complete shock that Game of Thrones Season 3 is almost here! I honestly thought it wasn’t coming back until the summer, and it really doesn’t feel all that long since the S2 finale. I guess maybe we’re all finally become accustom to these extremely long breaks between seasons of our favorite cable TV shows. No matter how long it’s been, all of America is about to get GoT fever when Season 3 debuts on HBO March 13, 2013!

Now that Cyborg has been called up to the major leagues by joining the Justice League, the character has been popping up everywhere! It’s really amazing just how many random Cyborg toys and statues DC Comics has released in the past year since he became one of their “Big 7.” So it only makes sense for Medicom to release a New Teen Titans era Cyborg Be@rbrick to go along with their recently announced Robin Be@rbrick! The figure is based on George Perez's artwork from the classic New Teen Titans series, features a metallic finish, and comes packaged on a blister card feature artwork inspired by Perez’ pencils and inks.

Secret Painting Club Blue Edition by Couk

Secret Painting Club Blue Version Blind Bag Painting Series and Packaging by Couk

UK artist James Downing (aka Couk) has been working on a really cool project entitled the Secret Painting Club (Blue Version), which is a new blind bag series of 20 original 4”x3” acrylic painting on box canvas! Each painting is a one-off original, never to be reproduced, and comes packaged in a sealed bag so the piece you get is completely random. The idea behind Couk’s concept is that feeling of anticipation as you open a Dunny/ Kubrick/Qee blind box, while not knowing exactly what you might get. Combine that adrenalin rush with the ability to own a one-off piece of original artwork and you’ve got a killer combination.

Secret Painting Club Blue Version Blind Bag Painting Series by Couk

Each secret painting can be hung or stood upright on a surface, and comes wrapped in black paper along with a hand-drawn character card (containing a sketch and some information about the character) and a full color collector's card (showcasing all 20 characters). All of this is tucked away in a printed paper bag, sealed tightly with a Couk wax seal. The Blot loves the idea of affordable original art and Couk’s Secret Painting Club sounds and looks amazing!!! This is the Blue Edition of the Secret Painting Club meaning each painting features a blue background.

Secret Painting Club Blue Version Blind Bag Painting Series by Couk

The Secret Painting Club Blue Version by Couk goes on sale at 4pm EST this Sunday, December 2nd, at Couk’s online store for £23 each. Characters in the Blue Series include Double H (who wears a skull hat haunted by his schizophrenic grandpa), Vee (a lone head with a new body made out of construction paper and toilet rolls), Plibt (who is upset that there's a girly tree growing from his head), and Hoodsie (a hybrid of bird, bear and custard).

Thanks to an eBay seller we have our first look at HMV’s exclusive Glow in the Dark White Walker Game of Thrones Pop! vinyl figure by Funko!

Kidrobot Black - Kuro Megami by Junko Mizuno

Kidrobot Black - Kuro Megami by Junko Mizuno

The newest Kidrobot Black release dropped last week and it is insane (in a good way!). Kuro Megami by Junko Mizuno is 11 inches of black vinyl craziness. Like the Asian ancients before her, Kuro Megami commands power with imagery. Under her breasts, a skull and heart reside. She houses both life and death. She is a symbol for worship and a vessel for cosmic energy: strong and unsympathetic.

Kuro Megami features flowers seductively leading to the serpent in her womb. She wears a coat of hair that shines like armor, protecting her body as well as her identity. Two sweet and small guards stand at her feet with chains holding them in two of six gloved hands. This figure seriously has it all! And The Blot does love it’s trademark Junko hair! I’m also a little jealous of it.

Kidrobot Black x Junko Mizuno Kuro Megami vinyl figure has a limited edition run size of 200 pieces, comes hand numbered with the artist’s signature engraved on the bottom, and is sold exclusively at black.kidrobot.com and select retailers worldwide for $400 each.

Modern Hero Resin Figure by MAD

Modern Hero 7 Inch Black Resin Figure by MAD

MAD’s Modern Hero has always been one of The Blot’s all time favorite characters in the designer toy world, and I’m proud to say I own the character in a variety of different platforms. So when MAD announced he was working with Shinbone Creative to create his very first original Modern Hero figure The Blot was pumped! The 7” all black Modern Hero resin figure has a limited edition run size of just 13 pieces, and goes on sale on Black Friday, November 23rd at MAD’s online store for $300 each! Each hand finished polished resin figure comes packaged in a laser etched wood display case.

7 inches is so much bigger than I expected, which also explains the higher price tag. But if you’re on the fence about picking one of these awesome figures up be aware of one thing…this may be the only resin Modern Hero ever released! MAD’s gone on record that the production process was very time consuming and after this release he’s going to be focusing most of his attention on getting his Modern Hero vinyl figure produced. So all of the completists out there really need to jump on this release when they get the opportunity this Friday! Now, who’s got a spare $300 sitting around for The Blot? ;)

The Priest Vinyl Figure by Mark Gonzales

Super7 x Mark Gonzales The Priest Vinyl Figure

Skateboard legend Mark Gonzales has teamed up with Super7 to produce a vinyl figure of one of his trademark illustrations, The Priest! Gonzales’ distinctive artwork has piqued the interest of skaters and art fans alike for decades, and his The Priest illustration has been a constant image throughout his work. In fact, the original black & white image of The Priest was adapted into a three-dimensional sculpture in which castings served as a canvas for Gonzales’ original art. Now the Priest has been carefully recreated from the original sculpture into a high-quality designer vinyl toy.

After getting our first look at this exciting new figure more than two years ago, The Priest is finally ready to invade your designer toy collection! Standing over 10” tall, you may display your Priest with a choice of two expressions, happy or angry. All it takes is a twist of his poseable head. This limited-edition run was produced in Tokyo, Japan, and is collaboration between Super7 and Krooked Skateboards. Each figure comes packaged in a deluxe collector’s box, illustrated throughout with Gonz artwork, and retails for $75. Pick one up starting on Saturday, December 1st, at the Super7 online store.

Shadow Friend 8″ Dunny by Angry Woebots

Shadow Friend 8″ Dunny by Angry Woebots

Collectors worldwide have been salivating over the notion of an Angry Woebots panda 8” Dunny for years, and it’s finally here! Even when we all knew one was coming after Kidrobot released those killer Shadow Friend t-shirts and hats a few weeks ago Woe’s diehard fans were still anxious to see the final product. The Blot can honestly say it was worth the wait! Woe definitely did not disappoint with his new Shadow Friend Dunny. I love the colors and the trademark Woe brushstrokes across the Dunny’s ears, legs and arms. If I had one piece of constructive criticism it’d be the placement of the panda’s face. It almost accentuates the Dunny platform’s nose/mouth, and makes Shadow Friend look like he’s got a huge chin. But that’s pretty nitpicky…I’m still dying to add this gnarly panda to my collection!

Shadow Friend 8″ Dunny and Packaging by Angry Woebots

Shadow Friend is the perfect playmate. He follows you wherever you go, playing right along. As a backwards twin to the original Woes design by Angry Woebots, Shadow Friend takes all of the gushy, “I heart you” feelings associated with mammoth cuddle monsters, and replaces them with an awkward nervous fear. Inspired by Angry Woebot’s 3” 2Tone Dunny, this is a darker version of his iconic stressed out giant panda.

Showing off its latest catch of speared fish, the 8” Shadow Friend Dunny intimidates with hot pink beady eyes and a one fanged snarl. Representing the number of Giant Pandas left in the wild, 1000 Deep is printed on the back of Dunny’s head, and a black skull printed on its chest, a symbol of the species struggle to stay alive. Like their fuzzy counterparts, Shadow Friend Dunnys have very limited numbers…only 1,250 were produced! Collectors can pick up this endangered species beginning December 6th at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers for $75 each.

Barneyism of the Week - Double Standard

Talk about a double standard.

Every time I go after a busty dullard who can’t tell time,
or thinks I’m the ghost of Leonardo Dicaprio,
I’m shallow.

But somehow it’s ok for Robin to date a guy who can’t be trusted around outlets.
