“Tea For Two” Neo Blythe

The "Tea For Two" Blythe was originally released in the spring of 2003 and was extremely popular.  She now returns as the Superior Neo Blythe. Her makeup and hair color are identically the same as the original version. Her “lonely but tender expression” gives her a different personality then the original. Her accessories (bag, tea set and parasol) are slightly different from the original. And her hair is a little shorter than the original.

REVIEW: Sideshow’s Talking Tony Montana

P1020288

Over the past few years, Sideshow Toys has expanded their line from prop replicas and 12” figures to distribution, premium format figures and a load of amazing licenses.  In my opinion, their bread and butter is still the 12” figure line.

A recent license addition has been the cult classic film – Scarface.  There are currently 3 Scarface products available through Sideshow – talking Tony Montana (12”), Final Battle Scarface (12”) and the Premium Format Tony Montana.  All of these figures are of Al Pacino’s character Tony Montana aka Scarface.

The 1983 film follows Montana (Pacino) and his path from a Cuban refugee to running a powerful Miami based drug cartel.  You are there to witness his downfall - due to his power, enemies and paranoia.  Over the years, it has become an urban cult-classic and is still as popular now as it was years ago.

Rocket World Yeti and Sasquatch Sculpts

Sasquatch_n_yeti_sculpt

Patrick from Rocket World sent us this photo of the final sculpt of the new Sasquatch and Yeti figures from the Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo line.  Don't worry...they aren't going to bright red.  These sculpts are actually made out of wax.  See how the boyfriend and girlfriend have interconnecting hands? How cute.  Maybe not so cute is that they probably just got done slaughtering some evil poachers.

REVIEW: Jamungo’s NADE

P1020245

Jamungo’s Blow Up Dolls have been one of the hottest selling lines of the past few months.  An addendum to the BUD line has been the NADE.  Rather than a fuse coming out of the figure’s head, there is a grenade pin.  You can actually pull the pin out and throw it at your friends…however, I don’t recommend the latter.  The bodies of the two figures are exactly the same.

The NADE line is much more limited than the BUDs.  There are only 950 grey and 50 orange chase figures.  All of these figures are blank, without any designs on them.  The NADE line is also packaged in an interesting green military-themed bag.

The quality is impressive – similar to the Blow Up Dolls. Jamungo has plans for further series of NADEs.  It should be nice to see a line of artist-designed characters. 

NADE Grades:
Quality: 9/10
Paint: n/a
Durability: 8/10
Hype: 6/10
Fun Factor: 8/10

Overall: 8.9/10

NADEs can be purchased at the following sponsors:
