Captain America: The Winter Soldier Teaser Character Movie Posters

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Teaser Character Movie Poster Set - Chris Evans as Steve Rogers and as Captain America

It’s hard to imagine that The Blot would be this excited about a live action Captain America movie, much less a sequel. But here we are 6 years after the original Marvel film, Iron Man, and The Blot can’t get enough of these Marvel films. Not only is the original Captain America movie my favorite Marvel solo film to date, but the sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, looks fantastic! It’s based on an amazing comic book story line, and introduces both The Falcon and The Winter Soldier to the Marvel Movie Universe. What’s not to love!?!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Teaser Character Movie Poster Set - Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow

These brand new Captain America: The Winter Soldier teaser character movie posters Marvel unveiled yesterday look equally as bad ass. Yes they’ve been photoshopped to hell (ScarJo’s waste can’t possibly be that small), but I love them nevertheless. What can I say…I’m pumped for a proper S.H.I.E.L.D. adventure in Captain America 2! I'm trying to ignore that shell of a S.H.I.E.L.D. show currently airing on ABC.  Now when is the Black Widow getting her own film!?!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Teaser Character Movie Poster Set - Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury

The Captain America: The Winter Soldier Teaser Character Movie Poster Set includes Chris Evans as Unmasked Captain America (Steve Rogers), Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Captain America 2 storms into theaters on March 26, 2014.

Walgreens Exclusive “Prison Attire” Rick Grimes The Walking Dead Television Action Figure by McFarlane Toys

Walgreens Exclusive “Prison Attire” Rick Grimes The Walking Dead Television Action Figure by McFarlane Toys

This has got to be one of the strangest McFarlane Toys exclusives The Blot has ever heard of! You know The Walking Dead television show is huge when Walgreens wants to carry a high end, relatively expensive McFarlane Toys action figure in their store. Not only that, but this Walgreens Exclusive Prison Attire Rick Grimes is actually pretty bloody from killing Walkers in and around his prison home. I don’t know about you, but this definitely not the kind of toys I expect to find in Walgreens or Hastings Entertainment and Grosnor Distribution (the other two retailers that carry this exclusive figure).

The Walgreens Exclusive Prison Attire Rick Grimes The Walking Dead Television Action Figure by McFarlane Toys stands 4.5” tall, features 14 points of articulation (including interchangeable hands), and comes packaged on a full color blister card. This surprising big box retailer TWD exclusive should be on store shelves now.

MAD*L Phase 4 Vinyl Figures by MAD

MADL Phase 4 5” Vinyl Figures by MAD - MAD Ape, Modern Hero & MAEMAEMON

It’s hard to believe, but 2014 is the 10 year anniversary of MAD’s MAD*L vinyl figure! In honor of this huge milestone MAD has big things in store for the MAD*L platform, including a new series of 5” figures. After teasing it for months, check out the official line up of MAD*L Phase 4: the Modern Hero, MAD Ape and MAEMAEMON! Each figure stands 5” tall, is limited to just 400 pieces and will retail for $35 each. These awesome figures will be showing up in designer toy stores worldwide soon, but in the meantime you can purchase all three Phase 4 MAD*Ls as a set for $100 at the MAD Toy Store.

Here’s a little more info on each MAD*L Phase 4 design in MAD's own words:

The Modern Hero has appeared on a ton of my other toys, customs and artwork. For the MAD*L version, I wanted to step up the design to more than just a graphic treatment, so I included a removable top hat and of course his oversized Big Money chain.

MAD Ape is another design I’ve used over the years on other products and customs. Given how much people love the design I had to include it in the series.

MAEMAEMON is the newest addition to the series. This design was originally created by my daughter Mae. As with all the other ‘MONs in the MAD*L brand, it’s based on my kids. So when it came time to design her figure she jumped right in and started coming up with ideas.

Coming Soon: Mega Man x Kidrobot Vinyl Figures

Coming Soon: Mega Man x Kidrobot Vinyl Figures

Yesterday, Kidrobot unveiled the first teaser image for their new line of officially licensed Mega Man vinyl figures. All we know for now is there will be Mega Man vinyl figures released sometime in 2014. The Blot’s not the biggest Mega Man fan, so this Capcom collab doesn’t really get me all that excited. And while I’m sure the figures will look great (at least in the promo photos), it begs the questions what is the future of Kidrobot? Between Mega Man, TMNT, Marvel, South Park and The Simpsons, has KR officially turned its back on designer art toys to focus almost its entire business on licensed properties? I guess we’ll find out soon enough…

The Brewmaster Resin Figure by DuBose Art & Motorbot

DuBose Art x Motorbot The Brewmaster Resin Figure

The Blot was blown away when DuBose Art posted pictures on their Instagram page of their newest handmade resin figure, The Brewmaster! Who doesn’t need a Ghouly Goblin Master of Wizardry in their collection!?! This intricate figure is based on an original design by Motorbot, was beautifully 3D sculpted and printed by iamscumbag, and cast in brilliant shades of resin by Dubose Art. What an epic designer art toy team-up!

The Brewmaster is a freaking monster of a figure standing 7.5” tall and weighing in at 2lbs of sold resin. Yes, you read that right. It weights 2 freaking pounds!

Rio Grande Edition Shaolin Cowboy Vinyl Figure by Geof Darrow & Wednesday’s Finest

I don’t know how The Blot missed this, but Wednesday’s Finest has released the second colorway of Geof Darrow’s Shaolin Cowboy vinyl figure! Limited to just 100 pieces, the Rio Grande Edition Shaolin Cowboy features one of Darrow’s most popular comic book characters in a striking blue shirt. The Blot loves this figure, but I’m not sure the change in shirt color justifies a price increase of 100%. Yes, the original Shaolin Cowboy figure had a run size of 300 pieces, but that still seems like a pretty big price increase. Regardless, if you’re a diehard Darrow fan you won’t want to miss this release.

The Rio Grande Shaolin Cowboy vinyl figure stands 14” tall, was sculpted by Monster 5 and is currently available for purchase at The Black Lodge Holding Co’s online store for $220.

DC Comics Retro Sofubi Collection Wave 2 by Medicom - Superman, Swamp Thing & Bizarro

DC Comics Retro Sofubi Collection Wave 2 by Medicom - Superman, Swamp Thing & Bizarro

The Blot hasn’t even seen Medicom’s new DC Comics Retro Sofubi toy line in person yet, but I’m already obsessed with it! I’ve already pre-ordered Wave 1 (Batman and The Joker), and I can’t wait to get my hands on Wave 2, which includes Superman, Bizarro and the most surprising addition of all time, Swamp Thing. Swamp Thing was a huge property for DC back in the ‘90s, and he’s definitely had a resurgence recently, but he’s by no means a household name anymore. So of course The Blot was stunned to see Medicom include him in DC Comics Retro Sofubi Wave 2.

The DC Comics Retro Sofubi toy line features old school looking figures cast in soft Japanese vinyl from molds by Bear Model and paint designs by Frenzy. Superman and Bizarro each stand 9.8” tall and include plastic capes, while Swamp Thing stands 11.8” tall. All 3 figures feature 4 points of articulation, and come bagged with a header card.

The Superman and Bizarro DC Comics Retro Sofubi figures are currently available for pre-order through Entertainment Earth for $79.99 each here. They are expected to ship in September 2014. Now The Blot just needs to find a US retailer that is selling the Swamp Thing figure!

The Penelope McStompsalot Dunny is really a two piece set, which includes an 8” vinyl mech, fitted with a 3” vinyl Dunny pilot. From the minute Huck and KR started teasing this figure’s release The Blot was all kinds of excited! Finally we were seeing the next evolution of the Dunny. But then the figure’s official release was announced and I saw the price. $199.99 for an 8” Dunny without production numbers provided!?! Knowing Kidrobot’s horrible QC of the past, I just can’t see dropping this kind of coin on a Dunny made from ABS (no matter how amazing Huck’s design is.

She may be a no-nonsense, one eyed, red headed beauty, but don’t let the good looks fool you – she’s as handy with a sawed off shotgun as a lithium power wrench.

I just want to know why it took DC Comics erasing 75 years of continuity to start doing it? For DC Collectibles newest wave of New 52 action figures they’ve turned their attention to one of DC’s only female led books, Worlds’ Finest! The book stars Power Girl and Huntress, two heroes stranded in the main DC Universe while separated from their friends and families on Earth 2. The Blot’s always been a huge Huntress fan, and how can you not love Power Girl!?! I’m just glad they didn’t go with PG’s terrible original New 52 costume from the series’ first few issues for this release.

The DC Comics Worlds’ Finest New 52 action figure 2 pack includes Power Girl and Huntress action figures. Each figure stands 6.75” tall, feature a ton of articulation, and will hit store shelves as a 2 piece set in July 2014. You can pre-order this beautiful Worlds' Finest 2 pack from Entertainment Earth for $39.99 here.

RoboCop 100% & 400% Be@rbricks by Medicom

RoboCop 100% & 400% Be@rbrick Vinyl Figures by Medicom

It is amazing, Medicom always has the best movie tie-in toys! With the RoboCop remake hitting theaters on February 12th, Medicom will be releasing two super sleek RoboCop Be@rbricks. The Blot’s always been a RoboCop fan, and I’m cautiously optimistic about the remake. While most reboots leave diehard fans disappointed, the film’s trailers actually look good, the cast is pretty impressive and I absolutely love the film’s star Joel Kinnaman (from AMC’s The Killing). I just wish this new RoboCop didn't look like a Cylon from Battlestar Galactica.

Look for Medicom’s two RoboCop Be@rbricks to drop in April 2014. The RoboCop 100% Bearbrick stands approximately 3” tall and will retail for around $15, while the RoboCop 400% Be@rbrick stands approximately 11” and will retail for around $65.

“30 Days of Jerk” Pop Culture Painting Series by Jerkface

“30 Days of Jerk” Pop Culture Painting Series by Jerkface - Monopoly, Richie Rich, Sponebob Squarepants, Ren & Stimpy

New York artist Jerkface recently completed his epic “30 Days of Jerk” painting series. For 30 straight days throughout December and January Jerkface painted a different pop culture inspired painting. While the idea of doing a 30 day run of artwork is not original, Jerkface’s goal was to bring a fun and creative take on some legendary cartoon and comic strip characters. And boy did he! Every day The Blot made sure to visit Jerkface’s Instagram account to find out which character he used.

“30 Days of Jerk” Pop Culture Painting Series by Jerkface - Futurama Bender, Pink Panther, Tom & Jerry

What’s great about “30 Days of Jerk” is how Jerkface integrated his signature Jerks into paintings with beloved characters like Oscar the Grouch, Richie Rich, Spongebob Squarepants, Futurama’s Bender, Garfield and Family Guy’s Stewie. Jerkface serious cherry picked some of the greatest characters from television cartoons, comic strips, comic books and Sesame Street. Each painting carries the same theme, and yet is so different. I’m especially blown away by Jerkface’s line work! I can’t believe how tight each painting is considering they’re painted with a brush.

“30 Days of Jerk” Pop Culture Painting Series by Jerkface - Sesame Street Cookie Monster, DuckTales Scrooge McDuck, Brave Little Toaster, Animaniacs, Wylie E Coyote & Road Runner, Family Guy, Garfield & Odie

Each “30 Days of Jerk” release is a 12”x12” acrylic on 1.5” canvas painting, and sold for just $300 through Jerkface’s online store. While all 30 are sold out, Jerkface is currently revisiting his most popular designs and releasing them as ultra limited edition prints! So far Jerkface has released 6 prints, each with super small run sizes of 6 or 3 pieces. These prints measure 13”x13” (including a 1” boarder), come signed and numbered, and retail for $100. If you like the pieces seen here then definitely hit up Jerkface’s online store for his newest print releases (or shoot him an email and commission a one of a kind Jerkface painting).
