Upper Deck will release an All-Star Vinyl action figure of the San Diego Chargers’ LaDainian Tomlinson to Platinum Club members on Friday, November 23 (9:25 AM PST) and to the general public on Monday, November 26 (9:25 AM PST).

Tomlinson’s vinyl figures will be available to collectors and fans alike in a white and blue trimmed home uniform version (numbered to 500), the fan favorite powder blue version (numbered to 1,000), an alternate dark blue road uniform version (numbered to 500) and of course, a coveted black edition (numbered to 250) featuring gold team graphics on an all black figure.

This is definitely my favorite in the NFL ASV line.

Chupacabras!!!

Chup1
Chup2

One of my favorite bands - Super Furry Animals - once sang the following in their song Chupacabras:

Have you heard about the bat,
Eats your goat and then your cat.
Soon enough you will not smile,
If you see it you'll run a mile.

Well, David and Sun-Min took the mythical(?) Chupacabra figure and put their spin on it for Wonderwall's Kaiju For Grown Ups line.  This Chupacabra figure is the Puerto Rico Type.  Eyewitnesses in Puerto Rico began reporting sightings of the goat-sucker back in 1990.  You can see it shortly, since it'll be released in December.

Upper Deck will be releasing their Shaquille O'Neal All-Star Vinyl figure for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.  The Platinum Club will get first dibs as the figure goes on sale Black Friday (November 23rd) at 9:30AM PST.  The figures (above plus an all black version) go on sale to the general public on Cyber Monday (November 26th) at  the same time.  The nice thing is that this figure is in scale to some of the others and will stand over an inch taller than the D-Wade ASV.

Get Ready, Get Set…for Uglycon

Uglycon

If you're in San Fransisco and will be able to make it out to Uglycon on December 8th...well...I'm jealous.  The opening events will begin at 6PM (until 10PM)with a costume contest.  Of course, you need to dress up as an Uglydoll...not as the construction worker from The Village People.
 
And according to David Horvath, there might just be a web cam set up for all of us out of towners.

Check out this very cool Plastic and Plush banner that Nada"One produced and sent to us.  The characters are great...I just wanna know when they'll be turned into vinyl toys.

Seamour Sheep Illuminative Edition Now Available

Seamour
Seamour2

Well...it's not ACTUALLY available, but it's available for pre-order at the Crazy Label webstore.  I think this is one of the more entertaining vinyl releases of the year.  I liked the original Seamour Sheep, so how could I not like the Illuminative Edition?  You can just plug it into your computer via a USB connection (in his butt) and "voila!" it's all lit up.  Thanks to Metin for the keeping us informed.

We wanted to give you something special for the holiday season.  And is there anything more special than a bearded woman?  I’ll go ahead and answer that one a no.

So we are teaming up with Carnival Cartoons to give away one Harriet Carney vinyl figure.  You might have seen her reviewed on the site last week.  If you read the review, you’re in luck.

We’d like you to tell us who designed the Harriet packaging.  Send the answer to bcslivka@mac.com.

The contest will run through December 3rd.  So, send in your answer before 11:39PM EST on that date.  The contest is only open to residents of the contiguous United States.  Please include your mailing address in your email.  The winner will be randomly chosen.  Best of luck!
