Peary is one Bloody Bear

Peary

Rocket World has created an exclusive bloody polar bear...exclusive to Kidrobot.  This is a limited edition addition to the Insurgents Wilderness GruppoPeary is an extra bloody polar bear (he looks a lot like Titus) and limited to only 100 pieces.  He is 7 inches tall, so it's the normal vinyl figure and not a member of the mini figure line.  It looks like Peary got into some tomato sauce...but that's actually human blood (I like the smeared handprint).

Insurgents Minis

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.

The Observers are produced by STRANGEco and are available in black, green, red and grey.  These are one of my favorite figures of the year...these Mars-1 toys are great.

Observers Set to Land

STRANGEco has announced that the latest offering from Mars-1, the Observer, is set to hit retailers soon.  Now, if you didn't get to pick up the SDCC exclusive black Observer at Comic Con...you'll have the choice of 3 different colors (Red, Grey and Green).

The Grey version will be limited to 450 pieces. The Red and Green will each have 750 available.  The figures will be 6 inches in height and packaged in a box deisgned by Mario (aka Mars-1). 

I rarely get this excited about a toy release, but I've been kicking myself for not picking up the San Diego exclusive...and now I'm looking forward to snagging one of these.

REVIEW: Booted Glamour Cat

Wootini again has partnered with STRANGEco to bring collectors an exclusive art toy.  This time, the figure is from the wicked mind of Scott Musgrove.  Brought to life from his paintings, the Booted Glamour Cat – scientific name Felis Glamorous Nigripes – can be found in a number of various color combinations.

Musgrove has created several paintings of supposed extinct animals.  The Booted Glamour Cat figure is an exact shrunken scale model of the original creature, which roamed North America until the 1800’s.  This is all made up, of course.

The In-Crowd Wrestling Federation

Ic10

"To
beat the man you've got to be the man. Whether you like it or not,
learn, and love it, because it's the best thing going today"

The In-Crowd Wrestling Federation was set up by Daphne Pentonville
(a.k.a. Lord Humungous), with a mandate to bring back the educational
aspects of the grappling arts.  The
ICWF was a breakaway from the National Union of Greco-Roman Supply
Teachers (NUGST) formerly known as the Union of Re-Amalgamated
Grappling Instructional Teachers (URAGIT). Objections to URAGIT's
Marxist philosophies, both within the classroom and in the wrestling
ring, provoked terrible in-fighting amongst the Union's various
factions and eventually led to a main breakaway group and the formation
of the Social Democratic-led NUGST.

Take a look at STRANGEco's newest upcoming vinyl figure series - The Cactus Friends. The Cactus Friends are designed by Italian artist Simone Legno,
