1585506a

Forbidden Planet will be home to a very special signing by Pete Fowler.  He'll be celebrating the launch of his new Monsterisms Volume 4, Pets and Owners line.  The event will take place on Friday December 7th from 6PM through 7PM.

Pets And Owners is the fourth installment of Monsterism Island's
residents and their trusty pets. The assortment is a bewildering range of
cuties, freaks, terrors, dirtballs, and cheeky little rascals that
bounce, creep and float around (that’s just the owners!). The pets
range from reshaped competition beasts that are bred to the highest
standard to scruffy companions that, if provoked, will bite.

REVIEW: Lord Voldemort Tonner Direct Exclusive

Img_3099

Background

I’m not sure if you’ve heard of the Harry Potter novel or movie series, but it’s somewhat popular with kids and adults alike.  Tonner Doll Company was lucky enough to grab the Potter license for their line of Tonner Characters Figures.  And they haven’t let fans down.  The newest character in the line is the Tonner Direct Exclusive Lord Voldemort.

Lord Voldemort, who was born Tom Riddle, is the main villain in the Harry Potter series.  Otherwise known as He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, Voldemort has most notably been portrayed by Ralph Fiennes.  This iteration of the Dark Lord is from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Packaging

The Harry Potter packaging is similar to other lines of Tonner Character Figures.  The Harry Potter logo is placed on a black box.  Tonner is notorious for protective packaging, and Voldemort is definitely secure.
