Also from Jarvis is his Wrestling Elves set.  This limited edition vinyl figure set was produced by Hong Kong lifestyle label Silly Thing, for Juno's 5th album release.  They’re wrestling…I swear!

Both are only available in the U.S. from STRANGEco.  The Special Edition Yod sells for $99.99, while the Wrestling Elves set runs $139.99.

STRANGEco Presents Bob Dob’s Luey

STRANGEco has announced the impending release of Luey from the SoCal based artist Bob Dob.  The 5" tall vinyl figures might look a little familiar.  You might have seen them in Bob Dob's paintings...or maybe you saw the SDCC exclusive grayscale set. 

Luey, otherwise known as the
"Universal Bad Habit", is one of the most iconic
characters weaved throughout Dob's visual
narratives. As minions of the devil, there are many
Lueys around and they are always up to some form
of no good. "Bob Dob's paintings are filled with great,
fully rendered character design," states Jim Crawford,
co-founder of STRANGEco. "We're happy to begin
showcasing his great work in vinyl form with Luey,
the most recognizable irreverent design of them all."

The Raging, Smoking and Drinking Luey figures will each sell for about $19.99 and should begin hitting retailers in October.

STRANGEco debuted several of the hottest new vinyl figures at San Diego Comic Con.  Their SDCC exclusive grayscale Luey figure set (by Bob Dob) was a personal favorite.  And the upcoming Vivisect Playset is going to include some of the biggest artists out there.

It was nice to see a new line of Pete Fowler figures - Monsterism Pets and Owners.  And Touma's Slither was another impressive piece on display.

REVIEW: I.W.G. Mini Rocket Ship

Background

We were lucky enough to get our paws on one of Rocket World’s I.W.G. Mini Rocket Ships.  With 3 versions available – Classic Galactic Silver, Future Eco-Green and Covert Black Limited Edition – you’ll need to pick one up for your mini I.W.G. figures.  Produced by STRANGEco, the official Launch Party will take place March 9th at the Rocket World Gallery in San Francisco.

The story behind the rocket ship goes something like this:  The Astral Overseers gave the Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo a fleet of rocket ships to help fight the bad human poachers.  The rockets are fueled on ordinary garbage (with zero-pollutant emission…Al Gore would be proud).  Each of the rockets hold at least one mini figure (as well as human bones).

Packaging

One word describes the box each and every I.W.G. Mini Rocket Ship is packaged in: retro.  From the font to the drawings to the style of the box…everything screams retro.

The rocket and mini figure are packaged in a plastic tray within the heavy cardboard box.  It does a good job protecting what is a somewhat delicate piece.
