3d_soccabot_16

World Cup Soccer might be one of my favorite sporting tournaments.  It only happens every 4 years, and since it’s happening in Germany in 2006, I’ll need to wake up extra early.

Hammeractive
is celebrating the World Cup in style – by creating a line of Soccabots.  The 4” tall soccer robots are available in 16 unique designs – representing 16 World Cup countries.  They also come with their own soccer ball.

REVIEW: Carnival Cartoons’ Buzz Carney

P1020197

Carnival Cartoons’ first independently created and funded figure – Buzz Carney – hit store shelves a few weeks back.  It’s a fairly limited run piece (only 250 created) and has been made available through a number of online retailers.

Buzz is the first vinyl character from Carnival Cartoons’ The Carneys line.  If you haven’t checked out our interview with Jared Deal and Garnet Syberg-Olsen, the men behind Carnival Cartoons, there is a ton of additional information regarding future vinyl toy releases from the company.

When it comes to Buzz Carney, it was a pretty spectacular first attempt.  The toy is packaged in a window front box and has a decent amount of reading information on the rear.  Each toy includes a number stamped certificate of authenticity that is signed by Jared, Garnet and sculptor Eric Nocella.

Two New Figures From Suckadelic

Two brand-spanking new figures from the Sucklord and Suckadelic.  Well...they are sort of new.  They are actually upgrades of 2 Suckadelic classic figures.  We finally get a new Sucklord figure - Sucklord 77.  He " builds upon the carcass of his former incarnation with new beats, a new crew and new ladies. Look out!"  The only difference between the Galactic Jerkbag Volume 2 and the original is the color.  He is "limited to only 93 pieces, this space chump is sure to depress even the most jolly Supervillain!"  They are both available through Suckadelic's online store.
