Uncle Abdul from Metin Seven

Uncleabdul

You see more and more politically motivated designer figures hitting the market.  Metin Seven has created a prototype of his Uncle Abdul figure from his Seamour Sheep comic strip.  When this figure will be released, we don't know...but we'll keep our eyes on the Crazy Label site for more info.  For now, this is what Metin has to say about the figure:

This satirical suicide bomber character from the Seamour Sheep comic strip series will also soon be available as a designer vinyl figure. We hope that the release of the Uncle Abdul figure will help to ironize the act of killing.

The photograph shows the first hand-painted Uncle Abdul toy prototype being greeted by the very rare red-nosed edition of Marty Mole.

REVIEW: Gwen Stacy Tonner Character Figure

Background

Some fans of the Spider-Man comic series had issues with the way Sam Raimi’s films have differed from the original comics.  Gwen Stacy was Peter Parker’s first love in the comic, however, she’s not introduced until Spider-Man 3.  Mary Jane Watson was not seen until issue #42, 11 issues after Gwen first appeared.  However, Mary Jane, portrayed by Kirsten Dunst, has been in all three films.

In Spider-Man 3, Bryce Dallas Howard plays the role of Gwen Stacy.  Howard is the daughter of Ron Howard (and the goddaughter of Henry Winkler!).  Tonner Doll Company, having the Spider-Man 3 license, created a Gwen Stacy Tonner Character Figure based on her likeness.

The Spider-Man 3 packaging is similar to that of the DC Stars line.  The black, rectangular box has the film logo on the front.  Each figure is secured with padding and ribbons.

STRANGEco has announced the impending release of Luey from the SoCal based artist Bob Dob.  The 5" tall vinyl figures might look a little familiar.  You might have seen them in Bob Dob's paintings...or maybe you saw the SDCC exclusive grayscale set. 

Luey, otherwise known as the "Universal Bad Habit", is one of the most iconic characters weaved throughout Dob's visual narratives. As minions of the devil, there are many Lueys around and they are always up to some form of no good. "Bob Dob's paintings are filled with great, fully rendered character design," states Jim Crawford, co-founder of STRANGEco. "We're happy to begin showcasing his great work in vinyl form with Luey, the most recognizable irreverent design of them all."

The Raging, Smoking and Drinking Luey figures will each sell for about $19.99 and should begin hitting retailers in October.
