We were able to snag some photos of the new line of Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo (I.W.G.) figures from Rocket World. Check out the nice packaging...it somewhat resembles the original line...just a little more colorful. You can also see that every I.W.G. mini comes packaged with a special skull and crossbones that is specified to the characters weapon damage. For more info, visit Rocket World or STRANGEco's websites.
If you read Vinyl Pulse, you know that they have been doing a great job following the production of Tequilla. Tequila is the first in a series of rotocast vinyl figures to be released by Muttpop. The first run of figures will have three variations of this beautifully designed Lucha Libre character (Original, Extra Spicy, Raw) and includes a rotating head and removable soft vinyl poncho.
Look for the Original Version (700 pieces) to retail around $60 each and for the Extra Spicy Version (250 pieces) to retail for around $75 apiece.
David Horvath has something up his sleeve...unless he is wearing short sleeves. Newly added to David's site is this little illustration about a couple of silly reindeer with the phrase "Coming Soon". We'll surely be looking for any info about this line and pass it on to you then!
Here is what we know:
The story is about 3 little reindeer that ditch the North Pole and move to Sherman Oaks, California to attend Gamers College.
From the makers of Blokhedz (Essence and Vulture), the latest collectible figure is set to launch near the end of this year. The collectible BLAK explodes on the
scene with three different removable hands, lion's head medallion and
fitted cap. Empire city's greatest MC, just for you.

Rocket World now has the entire line of Insurents Wilderness Gruppo (IWG) mini figures up for pre-order. They are just shrunken down replicas of the original vinyl toys. Each figure is also selling for less than $10. If you enjoyed the original IWG line, you'll love the IWG minis.
Wheaty Wheat Studios is hitting the Action Figure shelves with their offerring of Mixy and Joe. CF, the author of the comic - Mixy, has this to say about the comic:
Joe is a 10 year old boy, who just wanted a pet who wouldn’t get run
over and die. He chose a rather rotten looking rabbit, named Mixy.
Unfortunately for Joe, mixy wasn't exactly your normal pet rabbit... and
so the misadventure begins, in a world that has forgotten the dead once
rose from their graves, where zombie rabbits desire world domination,
and little boys crave human flesh...
Look for these around the end of this year or early next year. I saw the prototypes at SDCC...they should be worth the wait.
With the Behind Blythe exhibition currently touring the United States, folks are beginning to take notice of this unique, wide-eyed doll. Some male collectors might consider them “girlie”, but there are plenty of collectors who really enjoy the Blythe look.
With the reintroduction of the Blythe line several years ago, fans of the 1970’s doll were able to purchase an updated figure to add to their collection. Now, those original dolls sell in the hundreds of dollars on ebay. For those of us in the United States, we are able to purchase the neo Blythe line straight from Hasbro’s online toy store for $89.99 each.
