Mars-1 Invisible Plan
was released in a special Comic Con version last July. Well, the
“real” version is out now in a red and a green colorway. Plus, they
have added 6 additional characters to up the line to 12 figures.
Scarygirl creator Nathan Jurevicius has a brand-spanking newline of super detailed vinyl figures. The characters include Seoop, Arkski, Bennzi, Heenie and Naal

One of the most talked about figures at the show was Jim Woodring’s Mr. Bumper. The top segment of the figure is removable, and it brings back memories of figures of yesteryear.
Last year Jeremy Fish gave us Bunnyvan – think a pink rabbit and a caravan mated. The next figure from Mr. Fish is his Turtle Camper. It’s the same premise and has movable legs, head and tail.
