Mondo has announced the second in their line of ceramic tiki mugs, this time inspired by the James Cameron classic, ALIENS. The Xenomorph Mug is hand-glazed, holds 16 fluid ounces, stands 8 inches tall, and is available in five different glazeways, three of which are available for pre-order and expected to ship in Summer 2017.
The Blue version runs $28.00. The Hive version (matte black with silver teeth and nails) goes for $32.00 and is only available from Mondo until March 3rd. And the Acid Blood (dark green) is limited to 200 pieces and sells for $42.00.
The Brown glaze variant will be exclusive to the Alamo Drafthouse (which you can order in the next couple of months), and the Xeno Bone version will be an event exclusive available at a later date. More details to come.
If you were alive in the 1990's then you likely remember those Lipton Brisk commercials featuring a stop motion Rocky Balboa and the actual voice of Sylvester Stallone shilling some weird iced tea lemonade concoction. Well, NECA has announced that they're transforming those stylized puppets (working from the actual puppets used to make the commercial) into Rocky and Mickey maquettes. Rocky stands approximately 12 inches tall and has fabric boxing shorts, while Mickey stands about 10 inches tall and features fabric hat and clothing. Both statues are in accurate scale to each other and have movable eyes that can be positioned in various directions. Each statue comes with a display base.
They'll be available beginning in July 2017. The individual Rocky maquette will be limited to 3,000 pieces. Or the Rocky & Mickey set (I'd obviously get that one) will be limited to 1,500 pieces.
