NECA’s Clothed “Weird Al” Yankovic Action Figure

NECA-Weird-Al

NECA has announced that legendary music (and pop culture) icon “Weird Al” Yankovic will be added to their retro clothed action figure line. And this is just the beginnings, as additional versions of Al will be coming later in 2016 and 2017 based on some of his most iconic song parodies.

NECA's first Al figure is dressed in tailored fabric clothing, similar to the toys that helped define the action figure market in the 1970s. The figure stands 8 inches tall and comes with two interchangeable heads, so you can switch between Al’s classic look from the 1980s and his modern appearance. Each figure includes a microphone and accordion accessories and comes in collector-friendly window box packaging. 

Kickstarter: Worry – the Aromatherapy Companion

Taylored Curiosities has created a Kickstarter project to produced the Worry plush - an Aromatherapy Companion. The little grey plush creature was given a belly full of dried lavender (to relax the nerves). The first 60 handmade Worries have sold out, with factory made plushies currently available to fund.

If you're looking to get in the door with a Worry plush, the $11.00 pledge level will get you a basic one. The project will be funded on Thursday February 18th 2016 at 3:22 PM EST.

Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.

Kickstarter: Rise of the Beasts – Series 2

Jon Karis from LittleRubberGuys.com is looking to make the Rise of the Beasts Series 2 a reality with funding the new four character series via a Kickstarter project. Series 1, released in November of 2014, saw the release of two sculpts: Rhino and Scorpion. This go-round, they'll be looking to add four new characters (Guwrah the Gorilla; Asayid the African Lion; Khabasat the Horned Lizard; Ant) and a full weapons pack. They will be available in different colors, unpainted and painted versions. The weapons will come in silver, gold, gunmetal black, flesh, Glow in the Dark and other alternate colors. And each figure comes with a weapon. Also, they're offering a number of add-ons.

This project will only be funded if at least $16,500 is pledged by .

Life-Size Masterpiece Series: Armored Batman

Hot-Toys-BVS-Armored-Batman-Life-Size-1

Hot Toys has always been the true leader of the high-end collectible market...so it should be of little surprise that they've announced the Life-Size Masterpiece Series. And to kick-off the new series, Hot Toys has announced the Armored Batman Life-Size Collectible based on the upcoming film - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The movie-accurate and realistic life-size collectible will be available in selected markets and stands approximately 6.4 feet tall (7.2 feet tall with the base). It will blow away that cardboard cutout of Ben Affleck you have in the corner or even that George Clooney Batman poster you insist on leaving on your wall.

Sideshow Collectibles is currently taking pre-orders for this life-size statue. It runs $7,999.99 (I'm assuming there's some large shipping quote as well). But can you really put a price on a giant Ben Affleck Batman statue in your home? But if you buy it...make sure you click that link and help a brother out.
