Valentine’s Day Edition “Lovecat” Dita by Rich Page

UME Toys is celebrating Valentine’s Day 2013 in style with the release of an all red “Lovecat” Edition Dita the Sphynx resin figure by Rich Page. Based on an original sketch by Rich of his family’s naked cat, Dita is a hand cast resin figuring sitting just under a proud 8” and a head that’s a whopping 4.3” wide from ear to ear! What’s really cool about this resin figure is it has one point of articulation at the neck so you can actually pose Dita to suit your display preferences.

The Valentine’s Day Edition “Lovecat” Dita comes signed and dated on the base by Rich and includes a unique Lovecat collector’s card. Collectors can purchase one of these kitties beginning at 9am London time tomorrow, Friday, February 1st, at the UME Toys online store for £75.

Carnage & The Maxx Custom Munnys by Shadoe Delgado

Carnage Custom Munny Vinyl Figure by Shadoe Delgado

The Blot loves superhero themed custom vinyl figures and Shadoe Delgado really knocked it out of the park with these two Munnys! I love how he was able to stay true to these iconic ‘90s comic book characters while reinterpreting them in his unique art style. First up is the killer Spider-Man villain Carnage, which is made from an 8” custom Munny and you can even remove the symbiote! The second custom figure is a spot-on 5.5” The Maxx Munny. I don’t know about you, but The Blot never tires of seeing sick The Maxx custom figures.

The Maxx Custom Munny Vinyl Figure by Shadoe Delgado

Sadly both of these figures were commissioned by a private collector, so neither is available for purchase. But if anyone is interested in a similar comic book character piece, shoot Shadoe an email or hit him up through his online store. Tell him The Blot sent you and make sure you send me pics of the finished custom pieces once they’ve been added to your collection!!

Meltdown GID 8” Dunny by Chris Ryniak

Meltdown Glow in the Dark 8” Dunny by Chris Ryniak

Remember the days when collectors would beg Kidrobot to transform their favorite 3” Dunny designs into giant 8” Dunnys? They’d start “petitions” on the Kidrobot message boards that had thousands of “signatures” but it never worked. Now all of a sudden KR is reusing designs left and right (not that that’s a bad thing)! Chris Ryniak’s Meltdown Dunny from 2012’s Apocalypse Series is one of the most popular 3” designs released in the past few years, and I’m sure fans are going to go crazy over these florescent, glow in the dark 8 inch colorways.

Meltdown Glow in the Dark 8” Dunny by Chris Ryniak - Green and Pink Editions

Meltdown Glow in the Dark 8” Dunny by Chris Ryniak - Orange and Yellow Editions

Kidrobot’s Dunny went on holiday to Chernobyl, which turned out to be a very bad idea. GID and semi-translucent, Chris Ryniak’s Meltdown Dunny is an 8 inch vinyl glowing ghost featuring dead eyes and what’s left of his pet fish. Only 500 of each color edition survived, and each is exclusively available through a specific type of retailer. The Green Edition is sold through Kidrobot retail stores, the Yellow Edition is available through Kidrobot.com, the Pink Edition is sold through specialty toy stores here in the US, and the Orange Edition will be available internationally through specialty toy shops overseas. What’s your favorite color? The Blot’s going with the Pink Edition Meltdown.

The Meltdown 8” Dunny by Chris Ryniak goes on sale February 14th and will retail for $75 each. Good luck collecting all 4!

Oven Fresh Dreams x Jason Carne Collaborate & Dream Typography T-Shirt

The Blot’s buddy Carlos J. EasyBake and his collaborative brand Oven Fresh Dreams is back for its first release of 2013 with a sick new typography design! The ninth installment in OFD’s "Collaborate and Dream" t-shirt series features a beautiful Oven Fresh Dreams script by Jason Carne. Many of you may know Jason from his indie clothing brand Among Villains. The designer eats, sleeps and breathes typography, and has created some epic designs through his own brand. This might just be my favorite OFD released to date!

Major Lazer Kidrobot Mascot Vinyl Figure

Major Lazer Kidrobot Mascot Vinyl Figure

Guns don’t kill people… lazers do. Picture it, America 1984…the Olympic Games are held in LA, President Reagan runs for re-election, the AIDS epidemic runs rampant, and underneath it all, the secret Zombie War rages. One secret soldier is rescued from the fray, his arm gone, but his spirit strong. He is given an experimental lazer prosthetic and hired by the CIA to continue his fight against the forces of evil as Major Lazer! He fronts as a dancehall nightclub owner from Trinidad, though in truth, he is a badass Jamaican keeping the world safe from vampires and monsters, while partying hard and tweeting.

Major Lazer Kidrobot Mascot Vinyl Figure

The Major Lazer Kidrobot Mascot is a 7” vinyl homage to the renegade soldier turned CIA operative, which also happens to be a music collaborative project by the Grammy nominated producer Diplo and DJ Switch. The musical act Major Lazer debuted in 2009 with their album Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do, and followed that up with Lazers Never Die in 2010. A new album, titled Free the Universe, featuring Diplo as the solo executive producer, is out February 2013. The Blot is actually a huge Major Lazer fan and I got to see these two talented DJs perform last summer. It was a sick show, and I highly recommend seeing them live if you ever get the chance.

Honestly, my jaw hit the ground when Kidrobot announced this figure a few days ago. I thought they had given up on collaborations with musical acts after their last few hip-hop inspired releases kinda bombed. What’s also surprising about this figure is it’s actually the second Major Lazer inspired release, the first being a cool all green Sofubi figure. At least the two figures are very different! The Major Lazer Kidrobot Mascot has a uniquely sculpted head and lazer arm to properly capture his eighties commando style and signature prosthetic. Collectors can pick one up starting Tuesday, February 19th, at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers worldwide for $50 each.

The Walking Dead Minimates Series 3

The Walking Dead Minimates Series 3 Action Figures - Dreadlock Zombie, Guard Zombie, Tyreese, Dexter, Rick Grimes in Riot Gear, Farmer Zombie & Hershel

Diamond Select Toys is about to release a new wave of The Walking Dead Minimates, which will include characters’ appearances from Robert Kirkman’s critically acclaimed prison storyline. This riveting tale was originally told during the hit Image comic book’s second year back in 2004. The Blot seriously can’t believe it’s been over 8 years since that crazy story was first published! The Walking Dead Minimates Series 3 features Riot Gear Rick Grimes, and Tyreese, Hershel and Dexter all in orange prison jumpsuits. Each The Walking Dead character comes packaged as a 2 figure set with a zombie, either a Farmer, Guard or Dreadlock zombie.

All four The Walking Dead Series 3 sets will be available at your local comic book store, your favorite online retailer and the Rick and Dexter sets will also be available at Toys "R" Us. While these are not expected in stores until Spring 2013, you can preorder a complete set of all 8 figures from Entertainment Earth for $29.99 here.

Marvel’s Iron Man 3 Wacky Wobbler Bobble Heads by Funko

Marvel's Iron Man 3 Movie Wacky Wobbler Bobble Heads by Funko - Iron Man, War Machine & Iron Patriot

It’s really amazing how The Avengers have taken over the pop culture landscape, and that movement began with Robert Downey Jr.’s original Iron Man film. So of course everyone is dying to see what the third installment of Marvel’s signature franchise is going to be like with a new director. Personally, The Blot thinks as long as the film retails its core cast these Iron Man films are going to continue to be huge! In conjunction with the movie’s release comes this pretty cool line of Iron Man 3 Wacky Wobbler Bobble Heads by Funko, which includes Iron Man, James "Rhodey" Rhodes in the War Machine armor, and the mysterious (and possibly villainous) Iron Patriot. All three look pretty sick right!?!?

Each Iron Man 3 Movie Wacky Wobbler Bobble Head by Funko stands 7” tall and comes packaged in a full color window box. While these awesome figures are not scheduled to invade store shelves until February 18, 2013, you can pre-order all three from Entertainment Earth for $13.99 each here.

Iron Man 3 Pop! Marvel Vinyl Figures by Funko

Iron Man 3 Pop! Marvel Vinyl Figures by Funko - Iron Man Mark 42, War Machine, Iron Patriot & Iron Man Deep Space Suit

There’s nothing that gets The Blot super excited about a big summer blockbuster movie than the release of some really cool tie-in toys (ok, a killer trailer helps too)! I’d heard for a while that Funko had some big things lined up for this summer’s superhero films, and they definitely delivered with this wave of Iron Man 3 Pop! Marvel vinyl figures. For the longest time I’ve read reports that the Iron Patriot suit was going to be the new War Machine armor in Iron Man 3, but seeing both “characters” included in this release makes me feel like Rhodey won’t be wearing the Iron Patriot armor after all.

The Iron Man 3 Pop! Marvel Wave includes Iron Man, War Machine, Iron Patriot and Deep Space Suit. Each figure stands 3.75” tall, features one point of articulation, and comes packaged in a full color displayable window box. While these awesome figures are not scheduled to invade store shelves until February 18, 2013, you can pre-order them all from Entertainment Earth for $9.99 each here.

Geof Darrow Signature Series T-Shirts by Epic Proportions – Shaolin Cowboy & Robo Bug T-Shirts

As you all know The Blot’s a huge fan of Geof Darrow’s art. So I was really excited to find out the comic book legend had designed two t-shirts exclusively for Epic Proportions Art & Design’s t-shirt signature series, a clothing line that highlights elite artists in a variety of different industries. Darrow even designed these two pieces specifically for the Epic Proportions t-shirt brand!

First Look: Chog Vinyl Figure from the hit Image comic book CHEW!

Image Comics First Look: Chew Vinyl Figure Chog by Skeleton Crew Studio LLC

As you all know there’s nothing that excites The Blot more than when the world of comic books and designer vinyl figures merge. So when writer John Layman started teasing the production of a Chew vinyl figure of a Chog based on the artwork of Rob Guillory I got really excited. A Chog (an amalgam of Chicken and Frog) is actually a new species of frog that had its DNA modified to taste and look more like chicken. You see, in the world of Chew chicken and other bird meats are illegal after a deadly outbreak of the bird flu killed millions of Americans. In order to try to reproduce everyone’s favorite white meat, people were willing to do pretty much anything…even mess with frog DNA to create the Chogs. While Chogs aren’t necessarily a major part of the Chew storyline, they do make for a killer vinyl figure!

Image Comics First Look: Chew Vinyl Figure Chog by Skeleton Crew Studio LLC

Chew by John Layman and Rob Guillory (produced by Image Comics) has quickly become one of my favorite books. It’s the story of Tony Chu, a cop who is also a Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. That makes him a pretty awesome detective so long as he doesn’t mind eating some really disgusting stuff.

The Chog vinyl figure was crafted exclusively by Skelton Crew Studio LLC and is scheduled to go on sale in Spring 2013, and is expected to be released in two limited edition colorways: raspberry and yellow, and a do-it-yourself blank white. While I will definitely be grabbing one of these awesome figures, what The Blot is really excited about is a Poyo vinyl figure! Wait, you’re not familiar with the cyber-rooster cockfight champion? Well go read some Chew already!

Thundercracker Flight Blue Chase 3″ Transformers Dunny by kaNO

Kidrobot x Transformers Thundercracker Inspired Flight 3″ Dunny Blue Chase by kaNO

After visiting every online store The Blot could find and coming up short, I finally got my hands on a blind box of kaNO’s new Flight 3” Dunny thanks to my local designer toy store Domy Books! Can’t lie, I was pretty excited to get my hands on one of these Transformers inspired designs. Then I opened it and realized I’d pulled one of two mystery chases, the blue Thundercracker inspired colorway. It was pure genius that kaNO and Kidrobot decided to release multiple Flight Dunny colorways each based on a different Decepticon Seeker.

The Flight Dunny by kaNO has a limited edition run size of 3,000 figures, which includes two mystery chase colorways, and retails for $14.95 each. Most stores are currently sold out of this Transformers inspired figure, but keep looking because you never know where one might pop up!

While the figure alone is pretty cool, it’s the packaging that really makes this figure something special!

That’s really thinking outside the Big Mac box!

Kidrobot Black Domestic Hunger Vinyl Sculpture by Blaine Fontana

Kidrobot Black Domestic Hunger Vinyl Sculpture by Blaine Fontana

Last week Kidrobot released its newest Kidrobot Black figure entitled “Domestic Hunger” by Blaine Fontana. KR Black has really been an uneven series with some killer pieces and a few super over priced questionable choices. Thankfully Fontana’s piece is pretty cool (although I’m not sure its $500 price tag is justified). The truth is Domestic Hunger is really more of a wall sculpture than a vinyl figure since it can’t stand on its own. It actually has to be installed by either wall mounting or hanging it. The Blot’s tempted to say this might be one of my favorite KR Black pieces released so far.

Like a siren, Domestic Hunger lures. Grounded by gleaming roots spreading from its base, its glossy upturned roof and weathered texture speak of home. A home with pointed teeth and hungry tongue. Like an insatiable pet, it must be fed.

Kidrobot Black Domestic Hunger by Blain Fontana has a limited edition run size of 200 pieces, with each figure hand numbered with the artist’s signature engraved on the back. Packaged in a display box, this 17” vinyl sculpture can be purchased now at black.kidrobot.com, Kidrobot retail stores and select retailers worldwide.

Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown Peanuts Screen Print by Jayson Weidel

Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown Peanuts Standard Edition Screen Print by Jayson Weidel

Dark Hal Mansion newest officially licensed Peanuts screen print and this time they pay tribute to “Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown,” Charles Schulz’ 1975 ode to pure, true love. Designed by artist Jayson Weidel, the Standard Edition print captures the classic moment when Charlie Brown finally gets up the nerve to open his mailbox to see if he’s received a Valentine’s Day card from the Little Red Haired Girl, and well, you can see what he finds in the image above! The Variant Print is my favorite of the two due to its simplicity. With just a few small images and a perfectly selected font Weidel is able to evoke so much emotion.

Fringe Series Finale Television Poster

Fringe Series Finale One Sheet Television Poster

I don’t know about you, but The Blot loves me some Fringe! After all the near cancellations and time slot changes I honestly don’t know what’s more surprising, that the show is ending after 5 wonderful seasons or that the show lasted 5 seasons at all. Thank goodness FOX decided to give the Fringe Division one final (albeit shortened) season to wrap up its intricate and sometimes startling story. I’m just a little disappointed we haven’t seen much of Lance Reddick’s Phillip Broyles this season. Thank goodness we’re getting reunited with Lincoln Lee and Fauxlivia tonight…I’m still crossing my fingers for a Charlie Francis sighting.
