“Astro Hero” Custom 5” MAD*L by MAD

“Astro Hero” Custom 5” MADL by MAD

MAD dropped his second surprise custom MAD*L in his online store this week, and it was this epic “Astro Hero” design!!! The Blot is seriously loving this mash-up of MAD’s signature creation, the Modern Hero, with Astro Boy. As MAD explained, “I do a lot of sketching in my book, and recently started taking some of those images and applying them to the MADL platform. I'm keeping them as simple black and white pieces, but trying to have fun adding lots of detail. As I complete them I'll be putting them up for grabs on the store.” The only question The Blot has is when will the next surprise custom Mad*l drop!?!

The “Astro Hero” MAD*L stands 5 inches tall and is a one of a kind hand painted custom vinyl figure. Packaged in a plastic bag with outer box packaging, both the figure and box come signed by MAD. This specific piece retailed for $150 at the MAD Toy Store, but is sadly now sold out.

DAME #11 Resin Figure Set by Huck Gee

DAME #11 Resin Figure by Huck Gee

Huck Gee has unveiled his newest universe, the world of the Dapper Little Scoundrels! In this new imaginary land the long quagmire of trench warfare was overturned with the invention of the mobilized pillbox. While air battles may have continued to rage overhead, the ground warfare was revolutionized with the invention of the Diesel Armored Mobile Emplacement (a.k.a. DAME). Over the years DAME factories have sprung up everywhere and the armored battle bot continued to evolve.

DAME #11 Resin Figure by Huck Gee

The DAME pilots themselves are known to form close bonds with their mechanized units. Emblazoning their steel with pinups, graffiti and fanciful female names. The brass initially tried to curtail these endeavors, but quickly realized that that special DAME/pilot bond produced a better warrior. For some of these pilots, this was all they had: they eat, sleep, live and breathe their DAME. And that unique bond might just be what would win this war.

DAME #11 Resin Figure by Huck Gee

The DAME #11 is Huck Gee’s first custom set based on the Dapper Little Scoundrels universe, and also marks his very first release of his brand new The Blank platform. Those two facts combined make DAME #11 a pretty important release if you ask The Blot! This two figure set stands 15” tall, and while the pilot does fit inside (just like the real thing) it's a bit of a tight fit. Limited to just 10 sets, each figure comes signed and numbered by Huck and will retail for $1,800. Collectors interested in purchasing this surefire iconic release should email sales@huckgee.com ASAP before they're gone forever.

Toy Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Comic Book Edition Marvel Legends Box Set

Entertainment Earth Exclusive Comic Book Edition Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Box Set by Hasbro

Thanks to our friends at Entertainment Earth, The Blot received this epic new Guardians of the Galaxy Comic Book Edition Marvel Legends Box Set by Hasbro to review. Whether you collect Marvel Legends action figures or are just a fan of 6” scale figures this is one set you will definitely want to get your hands on this Entertainment Earth exclusive! The retailer exclusive box set features all five members of the Guardians of the Galaxy (Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot and Rocket Raccoon) with decos based on their appearance in the popular Marvel comic book series.

Entertainment Earth Exclusive Comic Book Edition Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Box Set by Hasbro

From the moment you open your box form Entertainment Earth you can tell this GotG Marvel Legends Set is something special! The figures come packaged in an epic full color window box with a Velcroed fifth panel cover. What’s great about this packaging is if you the type of collector who likes to keep your toys mint on card, you can open the fifth panel flap to see all of the figures and their accessories without ever removing them from the packaging. I especially love the artwork on the side, which features each Guardians of the Galaxy member’s face inserted into the team’s logo. I’ve never seen this done before and it’s a little bonus artwork on an already stellar packaging job.

Entertainment Earth Exclusive Comic Book Edition Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Box Set by Hasbro

The Blot’s not one to keep my toys locked up, so of course I had to dive right in to this fantastic set. I don’t own too many Marvel Legends action figures, but I love all the detailing Hasbro put into each character. I especially can’t get over how much articulation these toys have. My favorite little added detail are Drax’s knife sheathes built into his boots. That’s a little something that’s totally unnecessary but makes the figure that much cooler!

Entertainment Earth Exclusive Comic Book Edition Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Box Set by Hasbro

The Groot figure is massive at 8” tall, and features an all new head sculpt based on his early comic book appearances that is exclusive to this set. Star-Lord and Rocket come sporting their GotG team uniforms, which The Blot honestly wouldn’t mind seeing all five members in. But what can you do!?! My only complaint with this set is that it took me forever to figure out a way to make Gamora stand on her own. There’s just something about her right foot that makes her super unsteady. Thankfully Groot swooped in with a helping hand.

Entertainment Earth Exclusive Comic Book Edition Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Box Set by Hasbro

If you’re on the fence about picking up this set because maybe you’ve already purchased a different version of most of these figures before, I’ve got one word for…accessories!!! This Comic Book Edition Marvel Legends Set has more accessories than you can ever imagine. I honestly couldn’t even find a way for all the figures to hold all the weapons it includes. Gamora comes with a freaking huge sword, a cape and an alternate head, Drax includes an alternate set of hands and two sets of knives, and Rocket Raccoon has three giant guns.

Entertainment Earth Exclusive Comic Book Edition Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Box Set by Hasbro

Star-Lord includes his two signature blasters, and there are two really special bonus accessories: the previously announced baby Groot in pot, and what appears to be…a cosmic cube! This was something I had not noticed before, but there’s a light blue cube included in the set. It’s got to be the cube with maybe an Infinity Gem “inside”, right!?! Pretty awesome if you ask me!

Entertainment Earth Exclusive Comic Book Edition Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Box Set by Hasbro

The Entertainment Earth Exclusive Guardians of the Galaxy Comic Book Edition Marvel Legends Action Figure Box Set is in stock and ready to ship! You can pre-order it exclusively at Entertainment Earth’s online store for $119.99 here – this even includes free shipping!

Con Report: Space City Comic Con 2015

Space City Comic Con 2015 Logo

It’s really exciting to watch a small local con finally grow into itself. That’s what The Blot witnessed this past weekend as I attended vastly improved Space City Comic Con at NRG Park in Houston, Texas. The past few years Space City Comic Con really searched for an identity as it morphed from Space City Con to The Houston Con and then to Space City Comic Con. During that same time period it has changed locations even more than it changed names, and not always for the betterment of its attendees. But this year really showed what SCCC could be come.

Space City Comic Con 2015

I think the key to Space City Comic Con’s growth was its new location. Leaving hotels behind, it moved into NRG Park, which is a good size convention center. This coupled with a new set up for buying and/or picking up badges cut down on lines and wait time to get into the convention considerably (one of last year’s show’s biggest complaints). But what really made The Blot happy was the new layout of the dealer room, which included more vendors and comics than ever before! The celebrity autograph area was also really big and accommodating for lines and crowds.

The Blot had a great time talking with comic book creators throughout the weekend, including popular artists such as Norm Rapmund, Jonathan Glapion, Scott Kolins, Sean "Cheeks" Galloway, Walden Wong and Carlo Barberi. It was especially a treat to meet the iconic Allen Bellman, who was involved in the early days of Marvel Comics. All of the artists spoke glowingly of Space City Comic Con, many of whom had never been to Houston before. I think that’s especially key as a convention continues to grow by bringing in more and more creators and celebrity guests.

Space City Comic Con 2015

My only real complaint was how cramped the artists alley was, with the aisles way too narrow. You should have seen how I clogged each row with my large double stroller on Saturday. It made stopping to talk to artists and browse through their work almost impossible. That being said, I was blown away by the show’s guest list and really enjoyed meeting so many talented comic book professionals!

All in all The Blot had a fantastic time at Space City Comic Con, and I hope the show is able to build upon the success of this year’s show. I can really see the huge improvements the organizers made to the show this year and it really pad off! I can’t wait to see what SCCC has in store for us next year. I for one will definitely be back.

National Lampoon’s Vacation Screen Print by Andrew Kolb x Mondo

Later today Mondo will be releasing a movie poster for National Lampoon’s Vacation by Andrew Kolb! His fun, whimsical art style works so well to capture the essence of this comedy classic. As Kolb explained “Before the crew brought me the project, I'd only seen the film a half dozen times, but thought I knew it pretty well. Wrong. After watching it again - taking notes, rewinding, and jotting down ideas the whole time - I realized just how brilliantly paced the whole thing is. In working through concepts (maps, postcards, etc.), the goal was to make something as expansive as a film about a road trip deserves, while also literally packing in as many references as possible."

National Lampoon's Vacation by Andrew Kolb is an 18”x24” hand numbered screen print. Limited to 200 pieces, this movie poster will go on sale at a random time today, Thursday, July 30th, at the Mondo online store for $40.

Hastings Exclusive Transformers Mini Vinyl Figures by The Loyal Subjects

Hastings Exclusive Transformers Dead Optimus Prime 5.5” Mini Vinyl Figure by The Loyal Subjects

The Loyal Subjects have teamed up with Hastings to release a new wave of retailer exclusive Transformers Action Vinyls mini figures! This release includes three Hastings exclusive colorways of Autobot leader Optimus Prime and Decepticons Bitzwing and Rumble. All three figures are available now at Hastings retail locations and online at GoHastings.com. Prime is $34.99, while the two Decepticons are $16.99 each.

Hastings Exclusive Transformers Glow in the Dark Blitzwing Mini Vinyl Figure by The Loyal Subjects

First up is the Hastings Exclusive “Dead” Optimus Prime mini figure, which stands 5.5” tall and features 9 points of articulation. This epic and detailed rendition of Optimus Prime is taken from the animated movie where Prime’s spark is unfortunately extinguished, and his signature red and blue color scheme turns to grey and black. Thankfully, Prime’s powerful voice is still intact! Each figure includes his energon blaster, his energon axe and 3 three-second sound bites. Most notable is the figure’s detailed deco on Prime’s chest, which showcases his inner workings and his dimming all spark.

Hastings Exclusive Transformers Glow in the Dark Rumble Mini Vinyl Figure by The Loyal Subjects

The Hastings Exclusive Glow in the Dark Blitzwing stands 3.4” tall, features 10 points of articulation and comes packaged on a full color blister card. This triple changing Decepticon transforms into a jet and a tank, making him one of the most fierce and dreaded Decepticons around. Each figure has a rotating turret, a retractable cannon barrel, an energon blaster and an energon sword.

Last but certainly not least is the Hastings Exclusive Glow in the Dark Rumble features 8 points of articulation and includes extruding pistons when you push in his shoulders! Packaged on a full color blister card, the GID Rumble is one of Soundwave’s most destructive tapes. This Decepticon may be small for his size but packs a potent punch.

Supergirl Teaser Television Poster

Supergirl Teaser One Sheet Television Poster

After viewing two teaser trailers and multiple still pictures of Melissa Benoist in her Supergirl costume I really, really want to like CBS’ upcoming live action DC Comics television show Supergirl. But I just can’t... No matter how hard I try, I can’t get over Benoist’s casting. Every time I look at her all I see is Glee’s Marley Rose, the show’s most annoying character ever (and that’s really saying something). I know Kara Zor-El is nothing like Marley, but I just can’t get that thought out of my head. The trailers were enjoyable to watch though. Then again this first teaser television poster is pretty terrible. Who OK’ed this!?! Someone needs to work on their photoshopping skills ASAP.

WWE The Road Warriors Bullmark Vinyl Figures by Medicom

WWE The Road Warriors Bullmark Vinyl Figures by Medicom - Hawk & Animal

If you wondered why Medicom christened their Road Warrior Hawk and Road Warrior Animal Sofubi Fighting Series vinyl figures as The Legion of Doom instead of The Road Warriors, it’s not because that’s the name this world famous tag team used in the WWE. It’s because Medicom also had these awesome The Road Warriors Bullmark figures in the works!

Released as part of the World Champion Series, The Road Warriors, Hawk and Animal, each stand 9.5” tall and will retail for around $70. The Blot’s just disappointed these iconic soft Japense of vinyl figures don’t include the professional wrestlers’ signature spiked football shoulder pads.

Inspired by the indie toy scene’s extensive selection of customizable platform figures, the Awesome TV is a vintage-styled television that offers sofubi painters, designer toy customizers and even illustrators a unique canvas with infinite possibilities.

First Look: The Awesome TV Soft Vinyl Figure by Awesome Toys

The deceptively simple soft vinyl cube has been fitted with a removable front “screen” panel, so that not only can the outer shell be painted, re-sculpted or mashed-up with other figures, it can also be used to display prints, drawings, photos or even various items inside. Now you too can create your very own television program! Along with blank DIY editions, Awesome Toys already has some really cool releases planned for this new figure, including a number of artist collaborations, exclusive colorways, plus integration with previous Awesome Toys figures.

Pictured above are some vinyl test pulls of the upcoming Awesome TV sofubi. The Blot’s really digging its simplicity. So, what do you think!?! Look for Awesome Toys’ first Awesome TV colorway to be available for pre-order soon! You can keep track of this new figure’s progress by following Awesome Toys’ Instagram feed here.

Violet Soda Lady 8” Dunny by Junko Mizuno x Kidrobot

Violet Soda Lady 8” Dunny by Junko Mizuno x Kidrobot

Kidrobot is excited to announce the official release of Junko Mizuno’s newest production 8” Dunny, the Violet Soda Lady! Following the sold out release of the convention exclusive Berry Chocolate Lady 8” Dunny at San Diego Comic-Con (seen here), Kidrobot will be dropping its companion piece next Friday, July 31st, at Kidrobot.com, Kidrobot retail locations and select retailers worldwide for $100. That same day Junko Mizuno will be holding a very special signing at Kidrobot San Francisco from 6-9pm where fans can get their Violet Soda Lady Dunnys signed by its designer!

As Junko Mizuno explained “The Purple Soda Girl Dunny that I designed in 2012 was very hard to create, so I'm really happy and excited that her big sisters, Violet Soda Lady and Berry Chocolate Lady, are coming out! I hope they will find a lot of happy owners! I think of my Purple Soda Girl Dunny from 2012 as a daughter of Kuro Megami that I designed for Kidrobot Black Series. When I designed her, I was using the photos I took of old god and goddess statues at Asian Art Museum as reference. So Kuro Megami is kind of like a goddess representing my art. Purple Soda Girl and the two new 8” Dunnys are all her daughters who have the same goddess-like feeling.”
