Wo-Man & the Masters of the Universe Bootleg Resin Figures by BigMan Toys

Wo-Man & the Masters of the Universe Bootleg Resin Figures by BigMan Toys - Faye-Kerr, Wo-Man & Wo-Man Brilliant Replica

I can’t lie, even for a toy aficionado as The Blot it is near impossible to keep up with all of the amazing bootleg kitbashed resin action figures and M.U.S.C.L.E. inspired rubber mini figures being produced these days. Take BigMan Toys for instance, who’s been cranking out some really interesting resin figures based on popular ‘80s toy lines and keshi. BigMan Toys newest release is Wo-Man and the Masters of the Universe, which pays homage to the Mattel’s classic MOTU toys.

Wo-Man is a 5.5” resin figure and is as much influenced by He-Man as she is by the Twins of Power characters, Robert Crumb comics, and a worn to nothing VHS tape of Red Sonja! Wo-Man was saved by a mysterious hero in her youth, and from that point forth committed to never again relying on the strength of others. Brandishing her father's modified wood-axe, she roams the planets in search of the warrior who once came to her aid to pledge allegiance to him. Hindering her journey is her evil clone Faye-Kerr, an obvious homage to MOTU’s Faker. Embedded in Wo-Man’s axe is a gem, which when at its apex of power allows her to self-clone bringing forth a brilliant replica of herself to fight alongside her so long as the gem holds power.

Each Wo-Man resin figure features 3 points of articulation, sports a rubber suit of armor and a deadly ax. All three Wo-Man colorways seen here will go up for sale on October 31st at the BigMan Toys online store for $69 each.

The Walking Dead “Daryl” Screen Print by Brian Ewing

The Walking Dead “Daryl” Screen Print by Brian Ewing

A couple of weeks ago the Hero Complex Gallery hosted a pretty cool The Walking Dead group art show based on the hit AMC television show (which in turn is based on the hit Image comic book). The show was pretty cool, but the one piece that really stood out was this killer “Daryl” screen print by Brian Ewing! What’s awesome about this print is how perfectly it melds TWD’s most popular biker, Daryl Dixon, with Ewing’s unique art style. I love Brian’s use of his signature skeleton effect and the background collage just screams Daryl!

“Daryl” by Brian Ewing is an 18”x24” The Walking Dead screen print and has a limited edition run size of 75 pieces. Pick one up today from the Hero Complex Gallery’s online store for just $50 each.

Funko continues to expand its hugely popular line of Pop! vinyl figures with more fan favorite licenses.

Star Trek: The Art of Juan Ortiz Book Review

Star Trek: The Art of Juan Ortiz Cover Artwork

The Blot recently got to review the awesome new hardcover art book Star Trek: The Art of Juan Ortiz and it is seriously fantastic! Whether you’re a fan of Star Trek: The Original Series or just love a good movie/TV poster, you will definitely want to check out this beautiful oversized book published by Titan Books. Artist Juan Ortiz, an avid Star Trek fan, took on the challenge of creating a unique retro poster design for each one of the series original 80 episodes. The artwork embodies his passion for the series, the transformational Sixties, and the visceral reaction generated from each episode.

Star Trek The Art of Juan Ortiz Television Episode Poster

Each Star Trek: The Original Series poster is a little different, with each design embodying a variety of different styles like that of a ‘60s movie poster, comic book, pulp novel cover or advertisement. The common theme is their retro look and love of all things Star Trek: TOS. What’s wonderful about this art book is how Titan utilized every inch of this 14.4”x10.3” oversized book, with each poster taking up an entire page! It really allows the reader to appreciate each and every design.

Star Trek The Art of Juan Ortiz Television Episode Posters

For a while there it was all the rage on the internet to create fake retro and minimalistic movie posters for TV shows, super heroes and music albums. But Juan Ortiz definitely out did them all with this Star Trek series. It’s especially cool to see these posters become officially licensed. Ortiz didn’t just stop with this TOS poster series though, as he has continue to create all sorts of awesome Star Trek art since these designs have become so popular.

Star Trek: The Art of Juan Ortiz is available now in bookstores everywhere with a suggested retail price of $39.95! If you’re not able to find it at your local book store, you can order one from Amazon for just $26.76 here. It’s definitely worth it!

It’s a cool design of the Kidrobot mascot ‘Bot deconstructed, but The Blot feels like I’ve seen this before. I didn’t really follow the KR x Threadless Design Challenge, so I can’t say if there were other designs I think should have been produced instead. But I definitely would have loved to see a full Kidrobot x Threadless T-Shirt Collection.

Unfortunately, the Thor T-Shirt Collection might be its weakest release to date. And with only 6 designs it is also Threadless’ smallest Marvel Super Heroes collection. The Mighty Thor deserved so much better! The Blot was hoping to pick one up to wear to a screening of Thor: The Dark World next month, but I’m not even sure there’s a design I’d wear.

Johnny Cupcakes x Ghostbusters “Peter Venkman Big Kid” T-Shirt


Every Halloween Johnny Cupcakes’ mascot Big Kid dresses up as his favorite movies characters. While he typically goes the horror route, this year he’s decided to pay tribute to one of the greatest ‘80s movies of all time…Ghostbusters! Who knew with the addition of a Ghostbusters jumpsuit and a little slime Big Kid would look like the spitting image of Bill Murray’s Peter Venkman!?! It’s all about the hair! This is one Johnny Cupcakes design you won’t want to miss out on. Sadly it’s an in store exclusive, meaning you can only snag this t-shirt at one of Johnny Cupcakes 5 retail locations. Rumor has it there’s also a grey variant Ghostbuster Big Kid tee. Act fast because you know this release will sell out quickly!

The Nightmare Before Christmas 20th Anniversary Screen Print by Jeff Soto

The Nightmare Before Christmas 20th Anniversary Blue Standard Edition Screen Print by Jeff Soto

When Huckleberry announced they were working with Disney’s El Capitan Theater to release a 20th Anniversary screen print for Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas they had me at two words…Jeff Soto! Yes, freaking Jeff Soto designed a NBX print and it is so freaking glorious! Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas actually made its world debut at the famed theater on October 15, 1993, so it’s only fitting the film would celebrate its 20th anniversary there.

The Nightmare Before Christmas 20th Anniversary Purple Variant Screen Print by Jeff Soto

This awesome print is currently available for pre-sale at the El Capitan Theater’s box office and by phone. With each purchase of the screen print, the purchaser will also receive one general admission ticket to the film’s screening in 4D at a time of their choice on October 31, 2013 at the El Capitan Theater. Unfortunately, it sounds like the print is only available for pick up in person and shipping is not available.

The Nightmare Before Christmas 20th Anniversary screen print by Jeff Soto measures 18”x24” and is available in two limited editions. The blue Standard Edition has a limited edition run size of 300 pieces and retails for $60, while the purple Variant is limited to 125 pieces and retails for $75.
