Dalek’s 9″ Condi Bunee Qee

Sales_condi_bunee

Hmm...figures named Condi and Dicky?  The catch phrase of "The G.O.P will set me free"?  I"m guessing this a politically charged figure.  The only question I have is - where's the gap in Condi's teeth?

Wheaty Wheat at 5&A Dime

Well, if you'll be attending San Diego Comic Con...you'll have even more entertainment options.  Personally...I like to take in a ballgame, travel to Coronado or go to the zoo...but that's because there was never a show like this.  Wheaty Wheat Studios will run this show during Comic Con - July 19-23 and don't forget about the Back in the Day art show.  This year, there will be a ton of options if you get fed up with the Con.

REVIEW: Captain Maxx

P1030114

Background

Max Toy Co. and Mark Nagata have released their first original figure.  Captain Maxx is perfectly replicated from the only known surviving figure from the 1970’s.  The figure and character are an homage to classic Japanese superheroes.  Captain Maxx is here to kick some kaiju butt!

Packaging

The figure comes bagged with a header and a backing card.  The backing card gives the packaging some stability and also allows you to check out some cool drawings of Maxx.  It also gives you a nice breakdown of Captain Maxx’s special suit.

The Figure

Captain Maxx stands at 9” in height and is made of soft, rotocast vinyl.  There are 5 points of articulation (arms, legs, neck, waist).  The Captain Maxx helmet is removable, so you can reveal our superheroes true identity.  There will be several color variants, including glow-in-the-dark and black.  The original orange color is limited to a run of 150 pieces.

I had all planned on posting a review tonight (Monday) but it'll have to wait until Tuesday.  I just have to soak in the first championship by any team I root for.  (There was the Sixers in 1983 and the Phillies in 1980 - when I was 5 and 2 years old) Woo!
