Michael Stills and Strangekiss are back. And their first original release is Unknown by Jon Paul Kaiser. Yes...this resin art toy is purchased blindly. You can sort of tell what it looks like from the drawings and you likely know JPK's style. This limited edition run of 15 pieces will begin shipping in 6 to 8 weeks. The approximately 4-inch tall figure sells for $159.95.
"That f*cking nobody is John Wick." said Viggo Tarasov as he told the story about John killing 3 men in a bar with a pencil in John Wick and *spoiler alert*...in John Wick Chapter 2 you get to see him kill some bad guys with one.
Scott Kinnebrew - a.k.a. The Forces of Dorkness - has created this John Wick Chapter 2 - The Pencil as a tribute to an amazing action-movie franchise. It's a real pencil, coated is resin for durability, and custom painted to look like it has entered someone's skull and then been retracted. Each one is hand made so there is some variation between each so no two are alike.
Each one is a standard sized No. 2 pencil in a custom bloodied bag with a custom designed header card by The Forces of Dorkness. Limited to a run of 20 pieces, you can pick one up at The Forces of Darkness Shop for $16.95. (which is likely the most you've spent on a No. 2 pencil since those pencil fighting days back in 5th grade)
I was one of those people who helped with the MST3K Revival Kickstarter project. And there's usually not a week that goes by without one old episode showing up on my television thanks to the PlutoTV and ShoutFactoryTV apps. So when Dark Horse announced a new partnership with the popular entertainment brand and cult-hit comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K), I become downright giddy (maybe not giddy). They're apparently working on a brand-new comic series as well as a variety of Dark Horse–designed products.
I'm not sure how an MST3K comic book series will work...since the show is all about well-timed riffs. But I can always go for more Mystery Science Theater related collectibles.
