blind.boxed.tv Episode 3

In episode 3 of blindboxed tv, they decided to take a few jabs at the constructive criticism I gave episode 2. No worries. But since the post last week obviously had some impact on the show (no more background music), I'd like to give only one suggestion for this week.

Let me preface my suggestion with a direct quote from the show: "I don't know what it's limited to, or how big it is. But I do know it's awesome." The reason I, or any readers or viewers, tune in to read a blog or watch a video is to be entertained and/or informed. (By the way, a quick Google search turned up the edition size in question) I came away having more questions than answers. Why was it awesome? A cool design? Good articulation? A great transfer of artwork to 3D?

I do see a lot of promise in the show. It's well produced. Has varying camera angles. And the folks involved seem passionate about the scene. But it's still rated PG-13.

REVIEW: Indie Spotlight ShadowHawk

IMG_7968

Background

Shocker Toys – initially known for their Shockini mini block figures – have released several action figures based on indie comic book characters. Indie Spotlight Series 1 consists of five different figures, and for purposes of this review, we’ll be looking at ShadowHawk.

After a tragic scuffle with gang members Paul contracted the HIV virus. One of his friends, a cop named Christina Reid said she and a man named Carlton Sun had been developing an exo-skeleton suit of armor that could help aid him in accomplishing his task of revenge against the men who gave him the virus. Johnstone decided to don the suit, christening himself “ShadowHawk” after his favourite superhero, and was taught how to fight effectively with the help of Christine, promising to “take back the night”. Johnstone also kept the pills needed to slow his reaction to his HIV infection in small pouches on his belt so he could take them as needed.

Packaging

Shocker Toys went with the classic carded packaging with a bubble shell. The nice thing about their approach is that the card actually slides out from the plastic, so you don’t have to tear off a glued-on bubble. The back of the packaging features a cut away bio card for ShadowHawk (with the above excerpt printed on it), as well as photos of the Indie Spotlight Series 1 lineup.
