The con is now going biannual, meaning they will have a winter and summer show for the foreseeable future. To kick off their first winter event Space City Con went huge! They’re hosting an unofficial Babylon 5 20th Anniversary reunion with over 15 members of the show’s cast in attendance! Anyone who’s anyone from the B5 cast will be there, including The Blot’s personal favorite Mira Furlan (LOST’s Rousseau!).

Space City Con Winter 2014 featuring the Stars of Game of Thrones, Babylon 5 & Buck Rodgers

But that’s not all. It wouldn’t be winter without a huge a couple of huge names from HBO’s Game of Thrones! Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo), Kristian Nairn (Hodor), Esme Bianco (Ros), Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell) Gethin Anthony (Renly Baratheon) and Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel) will be in attendance.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Teaser Movie Poster

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Teaser One Sheet Movie Poster - His Greatest Battle Begins May 2

The newest teaser one sheet movie poster for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has been released, and it’s pretty boring (to say the least). Why does Sony continue to put out these bland movie posters for its Spider-Man franchise? You’d think Sony would be doing everything they can to make Spidey look cool considering old web-head is the center of their growing little corner of the Marvel Universe. With Venom and Secret Six films now in development and more on the way, ASM2 needs to be as big of The Avengers if it hopes to launch all these new film franchises. I guess we'll see what happens when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 premieres on May 2, 2014.

This kitbashed Star Wars figure incorporates the iconic Han Solo in Carbonite figure into what looks like a real live thin crust New York pizza topped with pepperoni, anchovies and mushrooms.

It’s Official: Vin Diesel to Voice Groot in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

Vin Diesel Has Been Cast As The Voice Of Groot in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Live Action Film

The world’s worst secret was confirmed last weekend when Marvel announced Vin Diesel has officially been cast as the voice of Groot in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy. This isn’t really all that shocking of news, but I loved the above photo Marvel released of Diesel and Groot so much I thought I’d write up a brief blog post about it. Plus, I’m currently watching the entire The Fast and The Furious franchise right now, so it’s all Vin Diesel all the time at The Blot residency. Have I mentioned lately how excited I am for Guardians of the Galaxy!?! I can’t wait to for all the tie-in toys to start dropping!

Guardians of the Galaxy storm the planet on August 1, 2014.

Teen Titans Go! Pop! Vinyl Figures by Funko

Teen Titans Go! Pop! Television Vinyl Figures by Funko - Robin, Raven, Starfire, Cyborg & Beast Boy

There is nothing better than when one of your favorite television shows is brought back from cancellation. Family Guy, Futurama, Damages, The Killing…and now the Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go! Ok, so technically Teen Titans Go! is only loosely connected to the Cartoon Network’s popular 2003 Teen Titans series, but The Blot will take what he can get. Since I was a little kid DC Comics’ New Teen Titans series was one of The Blot’s favorite comics and I love this anime inspired take on Marv Wolfman and George Pérez’ iconic characters. Now Funko is giving the New Teen Titans the Pop! treatment with this adorable new line of Teen Titans Go! Pop! Television vinyl figures. This new toy line includes 3.75” vinyl figures of Robin, Raven, Starfire, Cybrog and Beast Boy.

Each Teen Titans Go! Pop! Television vinyl figure features one point of articulation and comes packaged in a full color displayable window box. While these figures aren’t expected to hit store shelves until February 2014, you can pre-order them now from Entertainment Earth for $9.99 each here.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm Screen Print by Phantom City Creative

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm Screen Print by Phantom City Creative - Standard Edition & Variant

The first and only Batman: The Animated Series movie to get a theatrical release turns 20 years old this Christmas. The Blot can’t believe it’s already been 20 years since this fantastic movie hit theaters. Sadly, Mask of the Phantasm is still considered by most to be a utter flop due to its box office tally. Directed by Bruce Timm, written by Paul Dini, and featuring the voice talents of Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as The Joker, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm was the beginning of a near flawless run of animated Batman films and series that ended with Batman Beyond in 2001.

In honor of the film’s 20th Anniversary Mondo is throwing the film a belated birthday party with a 35mm screening at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz on January 7th. As part of the celebration, Mondo will be bringing two new limited edition prints by Phantom City Creative for sale at the screening!

Nike x Habro Calvin Johnson “Megatron” Transformers Sneakers & Action Figure Pack

Nike has teamed up with Detroit Lions superstar wide receiver Calvin Johnson and Hasbro to release an epic line of sneakers based on Calvin’s nickname “Megatron”, which he shares with a certain evil Decepticon leader. I can’t think of too many other official NFL x Transformers collaborations, but this one is pretty epic! The Nike x Hasbro Calvin Johnson “Megatron” Transformers Collection includes three different style of sneakers (CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II and CJ81 Megatron Elite TD Cleat), all of which feature a purple, silver and red color scheme and the Decepticons logo. But that’s not all! Each pair of sneakers also includes a 5” deluxe Generations Stealth Megatron in matching colors. This is the first ever Transformers action figure designed for an athlete in conjunction with a shoe release.

Nike x Hasbro Calvin Johnson Megatron Transformers Action Figure

In celebration of Johnson’s athletic achievements, the limited edition Megatron Rises 3 Pack incorporates the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, the Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II, and a special edition Nike CJ81 Megatron Elite TD Cleat. Inspired by the Allspark from Transformers lore, the box of the Megatron Rises 3 Pack is a unique, converting cube-shaped design. Decorated entirely with original artwork, the lines of the box mimic robotic surfaces and are augmented by triangles, hash marks, x’s, and o’s in reference to the football field and offensive passing plays. The effect is, like Calvin Johnson, “More Than Meets The Eye” - a package that opens to reveal all three shoes and the Hasbro action figure.

While The Blot loves DC Comics’ Deadman, I’m shaking my head at this release of the DC Nation Deadman and his faithful friend Crow Plush 2 Pack. It’d be one thing if the DC Nation was a ratings killer for the Cartoon Network, but they every show they release gets pulled from the schedule almost as quickly as it debuts. With that being said, I do love the DC Nation animated shorts the Cartoon Network airs during commercial breaks and this plush 6.75” Deadman plush is pretty cute!

Earlier this week Johnny Cupcakes released a new batch of holiday themed t-shirts, including this festive “Frosty Crossbones” design. Perfect for the chilly winter all of the US is already experiencing, “Frosty Crossbones” takes Johnny Cupcakes’ iconic logo and transforms it into Frosty the Snowman! While The Blot loves a good Big Kid mash-up, my favorite Johnny Cupcakes designs have always been these pop culture inspired Cupcake and Crossbones designs. What can I say, I’m a sucker for the original JC tee.

The “Frosty Crossbones” t-shirt by Johnny Cupcakes is currently available for $36 in sizes S-XXXL through the Johnny Cupcakes online store. Stay warm this winter!

Both tees are great, and the perfect way to tell the world you’re a Cibopath (or at least, a wannabe Cibopath).

Johnny Cupcakes x Elf “Big Kid Buddy” T-Shirt

Johnny Cupcakes x Elf “Big Kid Buddy” T-Shirt


Earlier this week Johnny Cupcakes a new batch of holiday themed t-shirts, including this epic design which is unofficially based on Will Ferrell’s hit 2003 film Elf (yes The Blot totally made that up)! The “Big Kid Elf”, which The Blot likes to call the “Big Kid Buddy”, features Johnny Cupcakes’ mascot Big Kid dressed up as the film’s titular character. Amazing, right!?! I especially like that JC printed this festive Christmas design on a true green tee.

The “Big Kid Elf” t-shirt by Johnny Cupcakes is currently available for $36 in sizes S-XXXL through the Johnny Cupcakes online store. Happy Holidays!

Skullhead 6” White Resin Bust by Huck Gee

White Skullhead 6” Resin Bust by Huck Gee

On Wednesday, December 11th, Huck Gee released this beautiful Skullhead resin bust! Busts seem to be all the rage these days, and as long as they’re this epic The Blot says keep ‘em coming! The Skullhead bust was painted gleaming white by Huck, stands 6” tall and features pretty wings and a stone faced killer stare. I can’t wait to see what different colorways Huck has in store for us! Limited to just 50 pieces, the white Skullhead Bust retailed for just $100 via the Huck Gee online store. Honestly, that price feels like a steal considering how much Huck’s customs normally sell for. Unfortunately these busts sold out almost immediately upon release.
