Loot Crate Exclusive “BatJoker” Batman Pop! Vinyl Figure by Funko

Loot Crate Exclusive “BatJoker” Batman Pop! Heroes Vinyl Figure by Funko

In celebration of Batman’s 75th Anniversary, Loot Crate’s December crate (which had an “anniversary” theme) included this exclusive “BatJoker” Batman Pop! Heroes vinyl figure in it! Pretty crazy looking, right!?! Now thanks to Funko we know what The Joker would look like if he’d become Batman instead of Bruce Wayne. While The Blot is typically not into these kind of outlandish colorways just for the sake of doing a variant, the BatJoker turned out really nice.

What's really cool about this retailer exclusive DC Comics Pop! is that December's Loot Crate crate packaging could be transformed into the BatJoker’s BatJokercave! Now that’s an awesome accessory. While Loot Crate's December crate is long gone, these figures are readily available on the secondary market at places like eBay and Amazon. That’s the best part of Loot Crate exclusives. While they’re retailer exclusives, they’re not all that limited because of Loot Crate's huge subscriber base.

“Original” Greedo Star Wars Premium Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figure by Funko

“Original” Greedo Star Wars Premium Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figure by Funko

To kick off their new line of Star Wars Hikari vinyl figures, Funko is releasing this really fun (and metallic) “Original” Greedo Hikari. The Blot is calling it now, this line is going to be huge for Funko!!! While a sofubi vinyl figure of the galaxy’s most famous Rodian bounty hunter doesn’t really excite me, the line will soon be expanded to include Hikari figures of Darth Vader, C-3PO, Boba Fett, Bossk, a Clone Trooper, a Stormtrooper, and the vicious Wampa. Rumor has it that many of these figures will be released in 2015 too. Talk about flooding the market! That being said, it’s going to be really hard for me to resist buying all of the different Boba Fett Hikari Funko releases.

Hikari, meaning “light”, is a highly collectible line of clear/translucent figures cast in soft Japanese vinyl. Each “Original” Greedo Premium Hikari vinyl figure stands 8” tall, includes a hand numbered card to prove authenticity and rarity, and comes packaged in a full color window box perfect for display. Limited to 2,000 pieces, this Star Wars Hikari vinyl figure is not expected to hit store shelves until February 2015, but you can pre-order one now at Entertainment Earth for $79.99 here.

“Days of Mondo Past” Humorous Parody Screen Print by Daniel Danger

“Days of Mondo Past” Humorous Parody Screen Print by Daniel Danger

As Daniel Danger explained on Twitter, “in the early days of doing Flatstock I used to do parody posters featuring my artist buddies for fun.” Yesterday, Danger did it again with this amazingly funny “Days of Mondo Past” screen print! Designed as a dumb joke for Mondo and their fans, “Days of Mondo Past” is a parody of John Byrne’s iconic cover to Uncanny X-Men #141 with all of Marvel’s mutants replaced by Mondo’s staff and popular stable of artists. Can you identify all the artists included in Danger’s design!?! It’s a venerable who’s who of the rock poster/art print scene. Here’s hoping we see more of these humorous poster designs from DD in the future.

“Days of Mondo Past” by Daniel Danger is a 24”x36” 7 or 8 color signed and numbered screen print. Available pre-order now at Danger’s online store for $50, this release is a timed edition from now through Sunday, February 1st. The run size will be set based on the number orders placed over the weekend.

The Mega Dunny Haunted House 20” Custom Vinyl Figure by Mikie Graham

The Mega Dunny Haunted House 20” Custom Vinyl Figure by Mikie Graham

After originally debuting at Designer Con 2014, Mikie Graham’s epic Mega Dunny Haunted House custom vinyl figure is finally available for purchase!!! This is without a doubt one of the most ambitious customs The Blot’s seen in a very long time, and Mikie absolutely killed it. This 20” Mega Dunny includes a full set of 18 hand painted 3” Monster Dunny figures and four lighting effects from a custom programmed Arduino board. This wild custom figure took a full year to be completed from concept to completion, and all of Mikie’s hard work really shows.

The Mega Dunny Haunted House 20” Custom Vinyl Figure by Mikie Graham

The Blot seriously loves all the crazy details Mikie included in this piece! For instance, all of the Monster Dunnys have magnets that allow them to easily attach to dozens of bases built throughout the Haunted House. The Mega Dunny Haunted House also comes on an amazingly detailed hand carved antique wooden base, includes a removable clear resin “water” top to its Black Lagoon lake, and even has a real working chain driven mechanism to pull the Frankenstein Dunny’s platform up and through the roof of the Haunted House. There’s even custom made stained glass windows featuring holographic “haunted eyeballs.” Insane, right!?!


The Mega Dunny Haunted House 20” Custom Vinyl Figure is currently available for purchase at the Zombie Monkie online store for $2,500.

“Wasteland Warrior” Berserker Vinyl Figure by Mutant Vinyl Hardcore

“Wasteland Warrior” Berserker Vinyl Figure by Mutant Vinyl Hardcore

The Blot always seems to miss out on covering Mutant Vinyl Hardcore’s amazing releases, because the announcements often come right before MVH’s lotteries open and subsequently close before I have time to blog. But make no mistake about it, The Blot is a huge fan of MVH’s western sofubi. Rich’s super detailed sculpting make all of his figures really come to life. Just look at this week’s release, the “Wasteland Warrior” Berserker. This guy really means business! I for one wouldn’t want to get on his bad side.

The “Wasted Warrior” Berserker returns from the scorched earth in this ‘80s post-apocalyptic themed colorway. If the Wasteland Warrior had theme music, it would be by John Carpenter, and the accompanying film would have a poster which was better than the actual movie. The “Wasted Warrior” Berserker stands over 13” tall, is cast in pale flesh soft Japanese vinyl and features neon red, muted purple, and metallic green and silver sprays. Each figure also includes 2 sets of hands, one to hold the haunted battle axe and one to display your severed head/spiked ball omake.

The Wasted Warrior is a limited edition figure available exclusively through a lottery via the Mutant Vinyl Hardcore online store for $200. The lottery will be open for 24 hours beginning at 12:00am today, Friday, January 30th, and closing at 11:59pm later tonight. Winners will be notified on Saturday, January 31st with payment due within 48hrs of notification.

Alien Screen Print by Tyler Stout

Alien Standard Edition Screen Print by Tyler Stout

Last Wednesday Mondo held a very special 35mm screening of Ridley Scott’s iconic 1979 science-fiction horror film Alien at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz in Austin. Of course it’s not a Mondo event without the release of a matching movie poster, and Mondo went all out with this surprise release! For their Alien screening, Mondo teamed up with the super popular Tyler Stout to release an epic Alien screen print. What I love about this poster is how much its design reminds me of Stout’s early releases. It’s great to see him revisit that stage of his career before he became the screen print star he is today.

Alien Glow in the Dark Variant Screen Print by Tyler Stout

Alien by Tyler Stout is a 24”x36” hand numbered screen print. The Standard Edition is limited to 510 pieces and will retail for $60, while the Glow in the Dark Variant is limited to 235 pieces and will retail for $110.

Star Wars Han Solo with Tauntaun Deluxe Black Series 6” Action Figure

Star Wars Han Solo with Tauntaun Deluxe Black Series 6” Action Figure

Hasbro is adding a third deluxe figure (and second “vehicle”) to its popular line of Star Wars Black Series 6” action figures, and it’s a beauty! This Deluxe Black Series release is Hoth Han Solo (from the Empire Strikes Back) with his trusty Tauntaun, which he can actually ride. All that’s missing is for the Tauntaun to feature “gut-busting” action, so we can recreate one of the most infamous scenes from the original Star Wars trilogy. I guess we’ll just have to wait for that bit of functionality until Hasbro decides to release a matching Hoth Luke Skywalker and Tauntaun set.

The Star Wars Han Solo with Tauntaun Deluxe Black Series Action Figure is not expected to hit store shelves until June 2015, but you can pre-order one now from Entertainment Earth for $39.99 here.

“Detective Comics #776” Batman Screen Print by Brian Ewing

“Detective Comics #776” Batman Screen Print by Brian Ewing

It’s been a long time since there was a print released that the minute The Blot saw it I knew I had to have it! That happened yesterday when Brian Ewing released this killer Batman screen print “Detective Comics #776.” Fans of Ewing’s amazing concert posters and art prints might not know this talented designer is also a published comic book artist. Back in January 2003, DC Comics published Ewing’s first of three comic book covers for the company and boy was it a beauty! That first cover was for Detective Comics issue #776, which featured prominently the world’s greatest detective, Batman. Ewing has decided to revisit that original cover illustration of DC’s The Dark Knight, and reproduced it for this striking “Detective Comics #776” screen print.

DC Comics - Detective Comics #776 Cover Artwork by Brian Ewing

What I found really interesting about “Detective Comics #776”, is that Brian decided to redraw skull in Batman’s magnifying glass because it always bugged him. It’s crazy to think this image was originally created over 12 years ago, but man does it still look as fresh as ever. It’s cool to compare the two skulls and see how Ewing’s style has changed over the years.

“Detective Comics #776” by Brian Ewing is an 18”x24” signed and numbered Batman screen print. Limited to just 75 pieces, this wonderful print is currently available for purchase at the Brian Ewing online store for $50 each.

“Snoopy Valentine” Standard Edition Giclee Print by Nicole Gustafsson

This Friday Dark Hall Mansion will be releasing its annual Valentine’s Day Peanuts print, and this year’s print is the fun “Snoopy Valentine” by Nicole Gustafsson. The Blot loves Nicole’s ode to Valentine’s Day with her unique take on the Peanuts gang, Valentine's Day, the charm of old school homemade valentines, and of course, love! What’s great about this print is it’s actually based on an original painting by Gustafsson!

“Snoopy Valentine” Variant Giclee Print by Nicole Gustafsson

Nicole explained her inspiration for this piece: “Growing up it seems like there was always aspects of Peanuts that were part of our lives. Watching Peanuts TV specials over the holidays and hanging little ornaments of Snoopy and characters on our Christmas tree, or the time I got a really big valentine with Snoopy holding a heart. So when I was asked to create a piece based on Peanuts, I immediately thought of all these fun times I had with my family and friends.” That fun really shines through on “Snoopy Valentine”!

Snoopy Valentine by Nicole Gustafsson is a 16”x20” numbered giclee print. The Standard Edition has a limited edition run size of 280 pieces and will retail for $65, while the Variant is limited to 50 pieces and will retail for $100. There is also a super rare Canvas Edition limited to just 5 pieces of each colorway and retailing for $225 each.

“Pattern of Corruption” OBEY Giant Screen Prints by Shepard Fairey & Cleon Peterson

“Pattern of Corruption” Blue & White OBEY Giant Screen Prints by Shepard Fairey & Cleon Peterson

It’s been a while since OBEY Giant released one of Shepard Fairey’s signature pattern screen prints that really blew The Blot away. But man I’m in love with this new collaboration between Shepard and artist Cleon Peterson entitled “Pattern of Corruption”. The print is based on a mural Cleon and Shepard recently collaborated on in Miami’s Wynwood district. Their collab turned out so amazing the two artists decided to make some limited edition screen prints inspired by the mural. 

“Pattern of Corruption” Black & White OBEY Giant Screen Prints by Shepard Fairey & Cleon Peterson

Both Cleon and Shepard deal with the persistent themes of the fragility of society, human savagery, and corruption in their work. As such, the “Pattern of Corruption” has a dichotomy in its hypnotic classical floral pattern with sinister elements woven into it, which caution the viewer to look deeper than an appealing surface presentation.

“Pattern of Corruption” Gold & Black OBEY Giant Screen Prints by Shepard Fairey & Cleon Peterson

“Pattern of Corruption” by Shepard Fairey and Cleon Peterson is an 18”x24” Obey Giant screen print, with each poster signed and numbered by the artists.

Funko has unveiled its new Marvel Comics Mystery Minis Blind Box Series, and it’s based on what is sure to be the biggest film of 2015, Avengers: Age of Ultron!

The Avengers Age of Ultron Pop! Marvel Vinyl Figures by Funko - Iron Man, Ultron & The Vision

Yesterday, Funko made the announcement we’ve all been waiting for… They’ve finally unveiled their entire line of officially licensed Avengers: Age of Ultron toys! The Blot was seriously blown away by how many movie tie-in figures Funko is producing this summer, and my favorite release of the bunch is without a doubt these Avengers: Age of Ultron Pop! Marvel vinyl figures. All of these look fantastic, but why the heck did Funko make The Vision pink!?! There’s no way he’s actually pink in the movie, right?

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Pop! Series includes Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, The Vision and the evil Ultron. Here’s hoping we see an Age of Ultron Pop! Series 2 with some female characters! I can’t imagine we won’t be seeing a Black Widow, Nick Fury, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver Pop! produced at some point in the near future.

Each Avengers: Age of Ultron Pop! Marvel bobble head vinyl figure stand 3.75” tall, features one point of articulation and come packaged in a full color displayable window box.
