DMS RST9 Release

DMS has announced a new release set for this Friday (June 29th 2018) at 7PM BST (2PM ET). Back from the depths of the ocean, it seems that RST9 entered Earth’s orbit off course, landing in the Atlantic. And the salt water has corroded his once shiny copper surface. 

The ninth colorway of the Robotic Space Traveller - by DMS - measures in at 3.75 inches tall. Made of polyurethane resin, it's textured in a distressed style with a weathered, rust effect paint job and cute gloss black eyes. The piece features magnetic articulation between the head and body.

Limited to only 25 pieces, this version is priced at £19.99 plus shipping (around $26).

Pop! TV MacGyver

Funko is heading back tot he 1980's with the announcement of their Pop! TV MacGyver vinyl figure. Yes, this is based on the original series - not the current MacGuyver...as you can tell by the likeness to a mullet-wearing Richard Dean Anderson. Everything about this screams out 80's - jacket, jeans, shoes. And MacGuyver even comes equipped with his trusty utility knife.

Keep an eye out for it to be available for pre-order over at Amazon.com.
