Only available via the Big Man Toys Web Shop, there will be 20 pieces of the Regular version, 10 pieces of the Faye-Kerr version, and 5 pieces of the Clone version. Each one will run $65.00.

Patrick Wong has released a new custom 6" Kidrobot Fatcap entitled Frozen Krylon. The piece, which is not available to purchase, includes custom sculpted features, an ice platform constructed from balsa wood, and is shown holding a small can of "Red Devil" spray paint.
The concept of "Frozen Krylon" supports the graffiti-themed Fatcap figure while introducing some of the formal aspects of graffiti writing. Before there was acrylic art spraypaint like Molotow and Ironlak, artists used high pressure hardware store paint like Krylon. With only a limited color selection to choose from, the technique of freezing a can upside-down and mixing aerosol cans was employed to create custom colors.

The MONOPOLY: The Walking Dead Survival Edition game is now available to purchase in comic book specialty shops. Based off The Walking Dead comic from Robert Kirkman, the game (from USAopoly) puts a "post-apocalyptic spin on the traditional Monopoly, giving fans the opportunity to live out the comic by fighting for their own property, and avoiding zombies with each players turn". (I thought that was the point of regular Monopoly
Players fight for, and then must fortify, their prime real estate and resources to sustain their lives. The game takes over the characteristic of The Walking Dead as the properties all correspond with the series landmarks such as the prison cells, Greene Family farm house, Woodbury, and more locations. Game tokens resemble key items from the series such as Rick’s sheriff hat, bucket of body parts, the telephone, and the R.V. And instead of using money to purchase property, players must trade in essential supplies such as food, ammo and fuel to gain more territory on the board or to place a guard tower or wall instead of the standard houses and hotels, to secure their properties from invading zombies.
I smell family game night! Gather 'round the undead kids! Walking Dead Monopoly will set you back around $39.95.
