Funko has unveiled the third figure in its new line of Star Wars Hikari vinyl figures, and it’s the Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader!

Marvel’s Daredevil Teaser TV Poster #2

Marvel’s Daredevil Teaser One Sheet Television Poster #2

Marvel and Netflix have released a second teaser motion poster for their upcoming live action Daredevil television series, and it’s definitely working hard to set a tone for the series. The Blot’s not exactly sure what that tone is, but we should expect a ton of action. While Charlie Cox looks pretty good as Matt Murdock, I just can’t get used to him in this all black spandex Daredevil costume (which we finally got a really good look at on the cover of FilmInk Magazine). I know this is just his debut look and by the end of the series he should be wearing his trademark red costume, but this looks terrible! Could no one in the Marvel Cinematic Universe help him out with a little fashion advice!?!

Marvel's Daredevil First Look - Charlie Cox as Daredevil.jpg

Marvel’s Daredevil, a Netflix original series, will premiere exclusively on Netflix on April 10, 2015. All episodes of Daredevil Season 1 will be available on April 10th, so get ready for some serious binge watching!

Copper Metallic Modern Hero Vinyl Bank by MAD

Copper Metallic Modern Hero Vinyl Bank by MAD

At a random time today, MAD will be releasing this shiny Copper Metallic Edition Modern Hero Vinyl Bank exclusively via his webstore! It’s been a while since MAD dropped a new colorway of his massive 18” Modern Hero vinyl bank, but man has it been worth the wait. I love this metallic copper color, and it fits perfectly with the fact that the vinyl figure doubles as a coin bank for all the copper colored pennies in your pocket.

The Modern Hero Bank features a removable top hat with a coin slot underneath, an articulated neck, and a coin bank plug at the bottom. Only 30 Copper Metallic Modern Hero banks have been produced, and this giant figure can be purchased from MAD’s online store today, Friday, February 27th, for $150 each. The vinyl bank’s head turns left and right so you can even “pose” it, and each figure comes packaged in a big box with foam inside to protect it during shipping.

For the first time ever Argonaut Resins will be releasing a wave of custom Kings of Atlantis resin skulls, and he’s enlisted the super talented Clinton Yaws to paint the figures! Very few of these OG Kings of Atlantis Skulls were released when the original KOA series dropped a few years ago, so this might be many collectors’ first chance to add this scale resin skull to their collection. Yaws brings his exciting paint style and dynamic concepts to adorn the first 3 pieces in this new series featuring regular clear tinted and glow in the dark customs.

The Argonaut Resins x Clinton Yaws Kings of Atlantis Custom Resin Skull Series Wave 1 includes the red clear tint “Easy Rider”, the “Blue Ringed Octopus” painted over a plain clear tint and the “Dead Scrolls” blue clear tint that glows in the dark.

Artist Rob Loukotka recently dropped this awesome “The Desk of Mr. Stark” screen print featuring the hypothetical desk of Marvel’s Iron Man! What’s amazing about this design is all the time Rob put into this fantastic image. By all counts, Loukotka spent over 50 hours adding fun little Easter eggs and details from Iron Man 1, 2 and 3.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Final Movie Poster

Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron Final Theatrical One Sheet Movie Poster

Marvel released what I assume is the final theatrical one sheet movie poster for this summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron! It’s a pretty sweet poster, and yet it’s not. While I love the concept behind the image, why in the world did Marvel not invest a little more advertising money for some quality photoshopping for a film that’s sure to gross something like 12 billion dollars? The original Avengers film had equally bad photoshopping and it drives The Blot crazy! Check out the international version below, which is basically the same poster but without all the Ultron drones in the background.

Marvel's Avengers Age of Ultron Final International Theatrical One Sheet Movie Poster

Besides that, I was happy to see Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury prominently included in the poster, as well as the inclusion of the Scarlett Witch, Quicksilver and the Vision (albeit hidden in the glare of the sun). I am a bit surprised that Chris Evans got fourth billing behind Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo. And if you look very closely at the bottom of the poster you’ll notice the names of Don Cheadle (War Machine), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Anthony Mackie (The Falcon), Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter), Idris Elba (Heimdall), and Stellan Skarsgard (Erik Selvig) are all listed as appearing in the film! That’s pretty awesome news in and of itself!

Valiant Entertainment Comic Book Minimates 2 Pack #1 - Battle Damaged X-O Manowar & Bloodshot

Valiant Entertainment Comic Book Minimates 2 Pack #1 - Battle Damaged X-O Manowar & Bloodshot

The Blot was excited to learn Diamond Select Toys had acquired the license to produce toys based on the heroes and villains of the Valiant Comics Universe! After disappearing from the comic book market for years, the Valiant Universe was reborn in 2012 and its preeminent heroes, X-O Manowar and Bloodshot, are now back in new monthly comic book series. Now it’s time to kick off your collection of Valiant Entertainment toys with this 2 pack of Battle Damaged X-O Manowar and Bloodshot fresh from a skirmish, maybe even against each other. But where is X-O Manowar’s signature helmet of all things!?!

Each Valiant Comics Minimate mini-figure stands 2 inches tall, with 14 points of articulation and a variety of interchangeable parts and accessories. Packaged in a full color blister card, this X-O Manowar and Bloodshot 2 Pack is not expected to hit store shelves until August 2015, but you can pre-order the set now from Entertainment Earth for just $9.99 here.

Star Wars Black Series Wave 7 6” Action Figures - Han Solo in Stormtrooper Gear, Bossk, Chewbacca & TIE Fighter Pilot

It’s kind of amazing how angry I get when I learn a new wave of Star Wars Black Series 6” action figures are getting released, but that it only contains two new figures! Can that even be considered a wave? Star Wars Black Series Wave 7 is a perfect example of this. It includes four figures, the newly released Han Solo in Stormtrooper Gear, Bossk and the re-released Chewbacca and TIE Fighter Pilot. The two new characters are awesome, but why is Hasbro releasing these figures so slowly?

Each Star Wars Black Series Wave 7 action figure stands 6” tall, is highly detailed and fully articulated, and comes with character specific accessories in a full color window box. While Star Wars Black Series Wave 7 is not expected to hit store shelves until April 2015, you can pre-order the entire wave for $79.99 here or the figures individually for $19.99 each here.

“Blasted” Earth Wolf Vinyl Figure by Josh Herbolsheimer

“Blasted” Earth Wolf Vinyl Figure by Josh Herbolsheimer

Has The Blot ever mentioned how much I love the craziness swirling around inside Josh Herbolsheimer’s head!?! Next week Super7 will be releasing a stunning new colorway of Joshua’s Earth Wolf vinyl figure, and its backstory is even more wonderous than the figure itself: “Once upon a time, there was a thing called Earth Wolf. He lived and un-died in a magic forest full of things and so forth, until one day he was wandering around with his mind also wandering around, walked smack into a pretty sunset, and got it all over himself. Being an outdoorsy sort, he didn’t really worry too much about cleaning up afterwards. And so, forever blasted by the colors, he lived or died the rest of his days doing the things that an Earth Wolf do, the end.” 

The “Blasted” Earth Wolf vinyl figure by Josh Herbolsheimer stands 9” tall and is cast in vibrant orange soft Japanese vinyl with a virtual rainbow of sprays. Collectors can pick one up at noon PST next Thursday, March 5th, at the Super7 online store for $95.

“Yellow Submarine” The Beatles Print by Alex Ross

“Yellow Submarine” The Beatles Print by Alex Ross

The Blot loves pretty much anything Alex Ross paints, and that includes this beautiful Yellow Submarine image commissioned by Dark Hall Mansion! For DHM’s newest officially licensed The Beatles limited edition print, they’ve turned to the iconic comic book artist to reinterpret The Beatles 1968 animated film in Ross’ signature realistic style. Alex has often been referred to as “the Norman Rockwell of comics,” yet his Yellow Submarine piece reveals the similarly powerful influence of master surrealist Salvador Dali, whom Alex has recognized as a guiding influence on his style.

“Yellow Submarine” by Alex Ross will be printed in exact scale to his original painting via limited edition canvas and paper editions and measures a whopping 72” long. The Paper Edition “Yellow Submarine” is limited to 295 pieces and will retail for $375, while the Canvas Edition is limited to just 125 pieces and will retail for $550. Both versions will come signed by the artist and go on sale at 9:30am PST this Thursday, February 26th, at the Dark Hall Mansion online store.

Batman v Superman First Look: Jason Momoa as Aquaman

Batman v Superman First Look: Jason Momoa as Aquaman

Zack Snyder set the internet on fire when last week when he tweeted this picture of Jason Momoa as DC Comics’ Aquaman from the upcoming live action film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. I love the casting of Momoa as Aquaman, but what is going on with his war armor!?! I seriously hate this look, and how far it strays from the source material (unless we’re talking hook-handed ‘90s Aquaman, I guess).

It’ll be interesting to see what role Aquaman plays in Batman v Superman, or if it’s just a very quick cameo. The bigger question is what does “Unite The Seven” mean!?! The text in the picture above may refer to the seven seas that Aquaman rules as king, or might it actually be referring to the seven members of the Justice League, which are presumably being united in Batman v Superman. Only time will tell!

One of The Blot’s all-time favorite b-movie franchises is Puppet Master, which in my honest opinion is criminally underrated as a cult horror film classic!

In just a few short weeks DC Comics’ fifth live action television series of 2015 will premiere (and third on The CW), iZombie! Loosely based on the 2010 Vertigo comic book series by Chris Roberson and Mike Allred, iZombie centers on Olivia “Liv” Moore a medical resident whose live gets flipped upside down when she becomes a zombie. She takes a job at coroner’s office to gain access to brains which she must eat to continue living. A side effect of becoming a zombie is she gains the memories of the people whose brains she consumes, which leads to a career of solving mysteries. If it sounds like a horror version of Veronica Mars, you’d be right! The shows share the same creator, Rob Thomas.

iZombie will air Tuesdays at 9/8c on The CW beginning on March 17, 2015.

Breaking Bad ReAction Retro Action Figures by Funko & Super7

Breaking Bad ReAction Wave 1 Retro Action Figures by Funko & Super7 - “Episode 1” Walter White, Jesse Pinkman, “Cook” Walter White & “Cook” Jesse Pinkman

Funko and Super7’s ReAction retro action figure line is taking an interesting turn in 2015 as it adds a number of modern television series licenses to its extensive line-up. It’ll be interesting to see how these new TV shows will look recreated in ReAction’s old school sculpts. For one of their first ReAction releases of the year, Funko and Super7 are releasing these awesome Breaking Bad action figures. At first The Blot thought AMC’s iconic series would look terrible as 1980s Kenner-style action figures, but now that I see the toys I realize how wrong I was! They’re very reminiscent of the many Breaking Bad bootleg resin figures designer art artists have been releasing lately.
