Inspired heavily by the artwork and general aesthetic of album covers by The Misfits, Samhain, and Danzig, as well as the creepy sci-fi villains in the early Microman line, Moribund stands at nearly 7", is fully posable, and comes in options of creepy clear green of painted bone white, with a removable PVC cape.
The Moribund itself is in this incarnation, a demon that makes itself present when a person is close to death. He flies silently in skies too dark to see and becomes visible in the pagan fires of Samhain rituals.
The figure will drop over at BigManToys on Saturday October 19th 2014 at Midnight London Time for $55.00 each.

Available now to pre-order for $165.00, it's slated to ship out anywhere between late November to mid December of 2014.

Dan Abramson of Brogamats.com is taking his newest project to Kickstarter in order to raise funds to produce his Yoga Joes series of inaction figures. These peaceful action figures are designed to inspire children, men, and military veterans to try yoga.
I made Yoga Joes in the spirit of getting more people to try yoga. In order to make Yoga Joes a toy that people can easily afford, I need funding to create a metal mold, so that the figures can be made through plastic injection. This is an expensive upfront cost, and so this idea needs to be supported by a community of yoga fans who believe that it deserves to exist.
The figures include: Downward-facing dog, Warrior Two, Cobra Pose, Child's Pose, Meditation Pose, and Headstand. Stretch goals include: Warrior One, Crow Pose, and Tree Pose.
A complete set of six Yoga Joes can be picked up at the $20.00 pledge level ($10.00 for active military or veterans). This project will only be funded if at least $40,000 is pledged by Friday, October 10th 2014 at 5:23PM ET.
