Memories of a ClutterMunk - The Ronin Custom Munny Resin Figure by Huck Gee

The Blot is loving Huck Gee’s newest custom release, Memories of a ClutterMunk – The Ronin! Honestly, Huck could have just released the turtle and I would have been all about this beautiful creature. Throw in Huck’s ClutterMunk character and you’ve got a pretty epic collectible on your hands.

A ClutterMunk dreams of bold adventures... of being a great warrior munk... an honorable zen ronin, travelling the land, following the path of bushido. A masterless samurai pursuing noble tasks, helping the unfortunate and standing up to evil oppressors. He dreams the life of a powerful, mystical warrior, chasing tales of legendary demons and ogres. Battling great monsters and banishing the living dead! Is this what a ClutterMunk dreams?

Memories of a ClutterMunk - The Ronin Custom Munny Resin Figure by Huck Gee

Each set comes signed and numbered by the artist, and includes all of accessories shown above. Huck has only created 10 of these memories of a ClutterMunk – The Ronin sets, each retailing for $1,800.

R2-D2 Star Wars Custom Mega Android Vinyl Figure by Evilos

R2-D2 Star Wars Custom Mega Android Vinyl Figure (Front) by Evilos

The Blot doesn’t blog about customs near enough, but I couldn’t ignore this freaking beautiful R2-D2 custom Mega Android by Evilos! For years now Evilos has been creating amazing Star Wars and Disney inspired customs, and he went all out with this spot on R2-D2 Mega Android. What’s even cooler about this release is it just might be the world’s first custom using the new 9.75" tall Mega Android DIY Figure.

R2-D2 Star Wars Custom Mega Android Vinyl Figure (Back) by Evilos

This custom took weeks of painting and is 100% airbrushed using a ton of 3D and masking airbrush techniques. You can really see all the effort Evilos put into this custom! But that's not all, the figure actually lights up and even has sound! R2-D2 comes alive with the use of an RF remote as Evilos has once again mashed paint with technology. This amazing custom Android is currently available for purchase via auction on Ebay here. The auction is only live for 8 more days, so don’t sleep on this epic one of a kind creation.

Chauskoskis Edition Wooper Looper Vinyl Figures by Gary Ham - Chauskoskis Edition & Waltermelon Edition

As you all probably know The Blot is a huge fan of Gary Ham’s adorable Wooper Looper vinyl figure. I mean how can you not love this cute axolotl!?! While Gary is Wooper’s creator, Chauskoskis (aka Walter Jacott) was the sculptor who brought this 5.25” figure to life. So it’s pretty awesome that Gary and Chauskoskis are teaming up to release a “Chauskoskis Edition” Wooper Looper designed by Walter!

The “Chauskoskis Edition” Wooper Looper is an edition of 30 pieces with two different versions. There are 20 of the standard Waltermelon Edition and 10 Chauskoskis embellished featuring Walter’s signature scowl (giving Wooper a very fierce look).

Brandon Lee “The Crow” Custom Dragon King by kaNO

Brandon Lee “The Crow” Custom Dragon King Vinyl Figure by kaNO

This year marks the 20th anniversary of The Crow live action film, and kaNO pays tribute to its tragically taken too soon star Brandon Lee and the role that made him famous with this epic “The Crow” Custom Dragon King. Since all of the production Dragon King colorways pay homage to Bruce Lee, it was a pretty perfect idea of kaNO’s to use this figure as a platform for a piece dedicated to his son. What’s really crazy is kaNO’s first custom The Crow Dragon King was created way back in July 2012! You can see the original blog post here. The Blot’s just glad a run of these is finally being made!

The Brandon Lee “The Crow” Custom Dragon King by kaNO is limited to 20 signed and numbered hand painted vinyl figures, and includes a crow accessory sculpted by Steve Schumacher. Collectors can pick one up at noon EST tomorrow, Friday, February 28th, at the kaNO online store for $300 each.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Teaser Character Movie Poster - Anthony Mackie as The Falcon

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Teaser Character Movie Poster - Anthony Mackie as The Falcon

While most people seem really excited about the introduction of the Winter Soldier and his origin story in the Marvel movie universe this spring in Captain America 2, The Blot’s even more excited about the introduction of Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson aka The Falcon! It’s only fitting The Falcon is the first African-American superhero in the Marvel movie universe since he owns the distinction of being the first African-American superhero in the Marvel comics universe and of all mainstream comics! Plus, I’ve always loved stories featuring Captain America and The Falcon. Their friendship and partnership always seemed more real (and believable) to me than the many teen sidekicks DC Comics has introduced over the years. I just hope The Falcon gets a bigger role in The Avengers 2 than Hawkeye and Black Widow did in the first Avengers film.  In the meantime, enjoy this awesome Captain America: The Winter Soldier one sheet character movie poster featuring The Falcon!

Captain America 2 storms into theaters on April 4, 2014 (in the US).

When The Blot first heard Medicom would be releasing a new The Simpsons Set featuring 100% Be@rbricks of Homer and Bart I got really excited! But then I saw them and they look really, really off. The faces just look so generic with their perfectly round eyes and noses. I’m shocked Medicom didn’t do more to make these vinyl figures look like The Simpsons characters they are supposed to be based on.

The Simpsons 100% Be@rbrick Homer and Bart 2 Pack by Medicom is scheduled to go on sale on March 15, 2014 and will retail for around $15-20.

“Space Shuttle Tribute” T-Shirt by Draplin Design Co. - “Blue Sky Re-Entry” Blue


I don’t know where or when The Blot first saw Draplin Design Co.’s “Space Shuttle Tribute” design, but it is freaking sweet! It’s such a beautiful, yet simple, retro design that really hits home what with The Blot living in Space City (aka Houston, Texas). Aaron Draplin originally made this graphic “after someone sent me a link to a NASA-sponsored ‘design a patch’ contest that had come and gone, and they had settled on some turd of a patch. So posthumously, I threw my hat in the ring, and that’s what you are seeing here. I hope you dig it.” After selling out two different print editions of “Space Shuttle Tribute”, this fitting homage to the retired NASA space shuttle can now be yours as a killer DDC t-shirt!

If you loved the original Aliens ReAction Figure toy line from Funko and Super7 as much as The Blot then you’ll be excited to see even more waves have been announced! Thanks to Entertainment Earth we now have pictures of the upcoming Firefly ReAction Figures, which includes (most of) the crew of the starship Serenity: Malcolm Reynolds, Jayne Cobb, Zoe Washburne, Hoban Washburne and Kaylee Frye. Firefly is still The Blot’s favorite Joss Whedon creation (sorry movie Avengers). Personally I can’t get enough Firefly/Serenity, whether it be tie-in comic books, t-shirts, statues or toys. Here’s hoping we get a second wave of Firefly Reaction figures to round out the show’s large ensemble cast.

Star-Lord Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Mini Bust by Gentle Giant

Star-Lord Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Mini Bust by Gentle Giant

Surprisingly, this beautiful Star-Lord Guardians of the Galaxy mini bust by Gentle Giant is actually based on the character’s look in the popular Marvel comic book series and not the upcoming live action GotG film, but to The Blot that’s makes it even cooler!!! Personally, I always prefer toys and statues based on a character’s traditional comic book appearance rather than their updated movie looks. And this 1/4 scale Star-Lord mini bust will look especially sick next to last year’s Groot mini bust by Bowen Designs. Here’s hoping we see more GotG mini busts released throughout the year.

Star-Lord Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Mini Bust by Gentle Giant

Never one to turn down a fight, Star-Lord is depicted wielding his twin blasters in the throes of combat. This kinetic limited edition bust, digitally sculpted by Gentle Giant’s master artisans, is rendered using the highest quality polystone and hand painted. Each piece comes individually numbered and is paired with a matching certificate of authenticity. Not scheduled to be released until the fourth quarter of 2014, you can pre-order this Star Lord Guardians of the Galaxy mini bust from Entertainment Earth for $76.99 here.

Peter Quill is not your typical human-alien hybrid superhero. Orphaned at a young age, Peter grew up to be a washout of NASA’s astronaut training program before a mysterious alien force offered the mantle of Star-Lord, an intergalactic guardian and peacekeeper. As Star-Lord, Peter has lead armies, saved universes and fought toe-to-toe with the likes of some of the most infamous villains in the Marvel Universe. Now leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord is a force to be reckoned with, and his legend is just beginning!

I must not be the only one as Medicom has done it with their line of DC Comics 100% Be@rbricks, Kidrobot will be doing it with their upcoming DC Comics Mini Figures, and now Mattel will be doing with their DCUC figures.

The final six DC Universe Super Powers figures are going to be done Four Horsemen style, and include Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Gold Superman, Green Lantern as The Riddler, and Mr. Mxyzptlk, with the giant Kalibak as the series’ collect and connect figure. Since I wasn’t familiar with the Gold Superman and Green Lantern as The Riddler action figures, The Blot turned to our friends at Action Figure Insider for the scoop! According to Daniel Picket, Chief Insider at AFi, in 1986 Pacipa released a “Super Amigos” Riddler that was a repainted Green Lantern sold only in South America, while the gold Superman was not actually released but was planned as part of the line for Superman's 50th Anniversary.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Teaser Character Movie Poster - Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce

Captain America The Winter Soldier Teaser Character Movie Poster - Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce

Everyone’s been wondering what role Robert Redford’s Alexander Pierce would play in Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I mean this is legendary actor Robert Redford in a live action super hero film. The Blot’s read all kinds of theories based on Alexander Pierce the comic book character, but the latest spoilers hitting the internet are pretty freaking crazy! Don’t worry, no spoilers here, but beware they are everywhere right now! I’m just glad to see Redford get his very own one sheet character movie poster considering he’s not playing a traditional Marvel super hero.

“Fist of the First Men” Game of Thrones Screen Print by Mark Englert

“Fist of the First Men” Game of Thrones Screen Print by Mark Englert

Next month Ltd. Gallery will be hosting a pretty cool group art show based on the popular series of books A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. Yes, that’s the same series of books the hit HBO television show Game of Thrones is based on. Mark Englert will be participating in the show, and he’s created a pretty epic print for it entitled “Fist of the First Men.” This art show is specifically based on the books, and Englert turned to a location that was not, in his opinion, done due justice on TV. And since the battle at the fist of the first men took place at night and involved a storm of flaming arrows, it gave Englert a great excuse to include a layer of glow in the dark inks!

“Fist of the First Men” by Mark Englert is a 12”x36” Game of Thrones screen print and features 4 colors (including metallic blue) and a layer of glow in the dark inks. This A Song of Ice and Fire print is limited to just 150 pieces and will retail for $60. Fans can pick one up from the Ltd. Gallery online store, while supplies last, during the show’s run (March 1st through March 23rd), as well as a final, special engagement at Emerald City Comicon March 28-30th.

Batman & TMNT Hikari Japanese Vinyl Figures by Funko

Batman Hikari Japanese Vinyl Figures by Funko

At Toy Fair 2014 Funko announced its newest toy line, Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figures! Scheduled to hit stores in spring/summer 2014, Hikari is a collectible toy line inspired by Japanese sofubi. Each limited edition figure will be cast in clear soft Japanese vinyl, comes hand numbered, and will be packaged in a special edition clear tube with an LED light that can be turned on and off to accentuate your displaying of these new Hikari toys.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Hikari Japanese Vinyl Figures by Funko - Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael & Michelangelo

DC Comics' Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be the first licenses released in Funko’s new Hikari line with more properties such as Star Wars, Marvel Comics, and Ghostbusters to follow in 2014. While The Blot really likes the concept behind these figures, they are not really as limited as you would expect for sofubi. Each character will have multiple colorways, and each colorway will have run sizes of 3,500 or more. While this is definitely less than your standard Pop! release, designer toy collectors typically expect much smaller run sizes. Nevertheless, The Blot can’t wait to get my hands on that glittery blue Batman!

There will be four colorways of the Batman Hikari Japanese Vinyl Figure: Glitter Blue Batman (LE 3737), Black Glitter Batman (LE 4192), Gold Glitter Batman (LE 4191) and Metallic Blue Batman (LE 4187). There will be seven Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Hikari Japanese Vinyl Figures: Glitter Donatello (LE 3755), Glitter Raphael (LE 3738), Glitter Leonardo (LE 3756), Glitter Micahelangelo (LE 3757), Gold Glitter Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (LE 4197), Metallic Raphael (LE 4193), Grey Glitter Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (LE 4198).
