Mad Men Season 6 TV Poster

Mad Men Season 6 One Sheet Television Poster

AMC’s Mad Men makes its highly anticipated season premiere NEXT Sunday! While I don’t love this Mad Men one sheet television poster as much as much as last year’s advertising campaign, it definitely brings up some interesting questions as to the show’s direction this year. Who is the Don Draper (Jon Hamm) we meet at the beginning of this season and where is life taking him?

Mad Men Season 6 premieres on AMC Sunday, April 7th, at 9/8 with a very special 2 hour episode and airs Sunday nights thereafter.

The Wolverine Logan Pop! Marvel Vinyl Figure by Funko

The Wolverine Logan Pop! Marvel Vinyl Figure by Funko

Of all the comic book movies coming out this summer the one The Blot is looking forward to the most is The Wolverine! That wasn’t true until about a week ago when FOX started releasing all of these amazing trailers and posters for their newest X-Men film. Before that it was Iron Man 3, with Man of Steel in the lead for a brief hot minute. I’m sure all three films will be great, but The Wolverine just looks to have so much more potential! Released in conjunction with the film is this awesome Logan Pop! Marvel vinyl figure by Funko. Who needs a costume when you’ve got claws like Wolverine!?!

The Wolverine Logan Pop! Marvel vinyl figure bobble head by Funko stands 3.75” tall, features one point of articulation, and comes packaged in a full color displayable window box. Expect these to retail for around $9.99 when they hit store shelves later this summer.

The Smurfs x Scott Tolleson Mixed Parts Deadbeet Vinyl Figures – Shmurfy Beets & Header Card

As you all know The Blot loves pop culture inspired colorways, so when Scott Tolleson announced he was releasing not one but two The Smurfs inspired Deadbeets I got pretty freaking excited. The Shmurfy Beet (blue body with white hat) and the Undead Shmurfy Beet (white body with blue hat) are unpainted mixed parts 7.5” vinyl figures cast in Japanese soft vinyl. What's great about this release is they really look like Smurfs without needing any paint at all.  And the headercards Scott designed for this release (inspired by The Smurfs' creator Peyo) look so spot on it's ridiculous.  All in all a classic release The Blot's gotta snag!

New The Wolverine in 3D Teaser Character Movie Posters

The Wolverine in 3D Teaser One Sheet Movie Poster - Hugh Jackman as Wolverine

Over the past two weeks FOX has really revved up their marketing of this summer’s X-Men spin-off The Wolverine by releasing three different movie posters and a teaser trailer! First up are these two awesome The Wolverine in 3D teaser one sheet movie posters. The Blot’s not all that thrilled to hear the film will be released in 3D, but I love this image of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine with a katana sword in one hand and his claws extended on the other. These posters actually give me hope that The Wolverine is going to be a kick ass flick! At least this time FOX is basing the film on one of Marvel’s all time great storylines, Wolverine’s original journey to Japan.

Acidfree Gallery, Hasbro and Tom Whalen have teamed up once again to bring us an amazing new Transformers poster in their Hasbro Screen Print Series entitled “Autobot Invitational.” The Blot loves the retro feel of this faux vintage auto racing print featuring a selection of the Autobot’s most popular racers like Jazz, Wheeljack and Mirage. I honestly feel like these Transformers prints by Whalen has been some of his best work and “Autobot Invitational’ might be my favorite! I love that some of the second tier Autobots are brought to the forefront in this poster, and the inclusion of Mount St. Hilary (the location where the Autobot’s Ark crashed in Generation 1 continuity) as the location of the race was pure genius!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation 3D Character Movie Posters

G.I. Joe: Retaliation 3D Character Movie Posters - Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock

A live action G.I. Joe movie starring The Rock as Roadblock should be a slam dunk for one of the biggest movies of the summer! Instead, G.I. Joe: Retaliation opens in two weeks to end the month of March. Not sure even the inflated price of 3D tickets can help this one. Has anyone heard anything good about the film yet? The Blot keeps waiting for a legit review, but I still haven’t seen any. And with the film premiering in just two weeks that means this film’s probably still a dud. But The Rock and Snake Eyes battling ninjas is still a recipe for success to me!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation 3D Character Movie Posters - Ray Park as Snake Eyes

These two new G.I. Joe: Retaliation 3D character movie posters just recycle old still shots of Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock and Ray Park as Snake Eyes with new, high tech backgrounds. Honestly though, these are way better than the original set of character movie posters set in the desert. So I’ll give Paramount that!

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (aka G.I. Joe 2) invades theaters on March 29, 2013.

Once confined to audio management of human concerts and internet broadcasts, these bots joined the ED-IT team and have put their skills to good use.

Something evil lives inside a trusted old friend. Slick gloss looks alien against innocent molded fuzz. Red orbs glow in contrast to dull white eyes. Sinewy arms finished in fists clenched. Patches and scars, once signs of years of love, are evidence of previous horror. Deep inside, a child is trapped. There is no escape.

Super7 - Prehistory Fossilla Vinyl Figure by Josh Herbolsheimer

After multiple unpainted and one-off releases, Josh Herbolsheimer’s Fossilla is finally seeing its first painted release (nicknamed the Prehistory colorway)! The Blot has to admit, I was kind of undecided about this “Destroy All Kaiju!” figure, but seeing this epic painted version I’m totally sold on Fossilla. The paint does an amazing job showing off Josh’s sculpt (and really helps explains what’s really going on with Fossila’s body). The Prehistory Fossilla colorway is available now through the Super7 online store for $95 each. 

From the annals of time, the terrible creature that said no to extinction, Prehistory Fossilla is here! An ancient asteroid destroyed his world, and he is back with a vengeance! Cast in Volcanic-Ash Grey with black and brown oily-goop spray and blood-red mashed innards under his exposed skeletal remains. This is the first ever painted edition of Joshua Herbolsheimer’s entry into Super7's Destroy All Kaiju! line of standard-sized (9” tall) vintage inspired vinyl figures.
