Hopefully you don't snooze on this one.  Onell Design has released the Standard Sarvos (in their online shop) as well as a Standard Sarvos that includes a Black Phase Arm and Gobon Blaster (via the Warp Zone).

New Work from El Maz

El Maz has a number of new limited edition plushies available, so we'll let him describe them:

Now that I am back home from the show, I wanted to share
my contributions to the Monster Art Rally show. The plush figures were done in
collaboration with Lina Britton, and they look fantastic in person. The plush
figures are her artistic interpretation in plush format of my characters. They
really raise the bar for what plush figures are (in my opinion) because they
have features like embroidered eyes/facial features and have a very polished
feel to them. I am super proud of what she was able to accomplish with
these.

Img_6005

Background

Hellboy II: The Golden Army was released in theaters this past July.  And like the first movie, Mezco grabbed the license to produce action figures based on the film.

The Hellboy 2: The Golden Army 3.75” Boxed Set includes four of the key characters from the film: Hellboy (the evil-fighting red demon), Liz Sherman (the pyrokinetic BPRD investigator), Johann Krauss (a German psychic whose ectoplasmic being is contained in a suit) and Mr. Wink (a giant cave troll who protects the evil Prince Nuada).

Packaging

The boxed set is…well…in a window front box as a set.  In this way, it’s great to either display in the box or remove and place in a primo spot on your shelves.  Each figure includes a stand, so you’ve got options.  The packaging is Hellboy II themed, with photos of the figures (and included accessories) on the back.

James Dean – Red Jacket Version

1_james_dean_red_jacket_ver
12_james_dean_red_jacket_ver

Well, I'm not really sure how many fans of James Dean are still alive, let alone collection 1:6 scale figures.  But Hot Toys has released another spot on version of everyone's favorite Rebel Without a Cause featuring his red jacket from the aforementioned film.  The figure will include an extra set of hands as well as a right hand featuring his "classic hand sign". 

So, I'm just wondering when they'll do a Jim Backus figure, who played Dean's father in Rebel Without a Cause (and Thurston Howell III in Gilligan's Island).

The prize includes the following:

  • Green friendly tote bag made from water bottles
