Hot Toys Announces and Teases

Hot Toys has announced [and teased] that might possibly be viewable at the Sideshow Collectibles San Diego Comic Con booth. Those announcements (all 1/6th scale, I'm presuming) include the Grand Moff Tarkin teaser shown above. For Star Wars fans, I believe this would be the first time we've seen Tarkin in high-end 1/6th scale.

Also, as seen below, they've announced the Valerian 1/6th scale license and are showing off a pair of figures based on characters I have no clue about.

There's the announcement of the Thor Ragnarok license, though that's not much of a surprise based on Hot Toys' 1/6th scale Marvel series. 

Finally, they're showing off a teaser image of the upcoming 1/6th scale Yondu figure from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

I’m Gonna Burst…

Artist Emilio Subirá has introduced a new character he has named "I'm gonna burst". He's described as "a sweet nihilistic ballon worried about how long he is gonna endure the party of the existence. Behind its cute appearance hides the pain of a nonconformist sick of it all who feels mandatorely invited to an absurd party that he can´t stand any more. That´s why he seems quite sad."

Currently available in three color versions (Red, Purple, and Orange) there are 3 pieces in each of those colorways. The nearly 4.33-inch tall resin figures are available for $69.00 each and come with a certificate of authenticity (numbered, dated, and signed).

SDCC17: DKE Toys Exclusives – Part 2

DKE Toys has rolled out their last round of 2017 San Diego Comic Con Exclusives. If you find yourself in San Diego, head on over to the DKE Toys Booth #5450 where you'll be able to gaze upon the mother lode of bootleg resin figures. In addition to all of their SDCC Exclusives, the booth will be jam packed with past releases as well. And if you didn't get a chance to see it, here is Part 1.

Dorbz: Horror and Pop! Horror Series 4

How can something so cute also be so scary? Well Funko's Dorbz: Horror series is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. A new wave of Horror Dorbz has arrived featuring the ghost with the most - Beetlejuice, Pennywise the Dancing Clown from Stephen King’s IT (1990), and Jack Torrance complete with his signature axe from The Shining. Also, look for the frozen version of Jack Torrance - a chase with a rarity of 1-in-6. There will also be a few exclusives, including the Flocked Gizmo (Hot Topic) and Plaid Shirt Version of Beetlejuice (Books-A-Million).

Also, the Pop!: Horror Series 4 features Carrie in her iconic bloody prom dress; From the horror classic Psycho, the infamous Norman Bates, dressed as mother; Tiffany, Chucky’s frightening partner in crime from Bride of Chucky; And, from the Conjuring franchise, the evil possessed doll, Annabelle. The Bride of Chucky chase variant, Tiffany splattered in blood, is a 1-in-6 rarity. And the black and white version of Norman Bates will be exclusive to FYE.

If you're interested in pre-ordering any of these (except for the exclusives), you can head on over to Amazon.com - where they have many of these figures available for pre-order.

Pop! Television: Mystery Science Theater 3000

At the beginning of this year, we announced that Funko would be releasing a series of Pop! Television: Mystery Science Theater 3000 figures. At that time, all that was available were artist renderings. But Funko has now released actual image of both the Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot Pop! vinyl figures. Now, (or more likely October 2017, when they're released) you can set them on your lonely sofa and riff away with your robotic pals at awful B-movies...just like the professionals.

[And since I have life-size replicas of both of these guys in my abode...there's no doubt I will be purchasing them]

Wonder Goblin Death Bat One-Offs

The Wonder Goblin Death Bat one-offs have been released. Each unique vinyl bat has been customized/painted by Wonder Goblin in a rainbow of different bright hues. The 10-inch tall bat creature was originally sculpted by Zectron as a collaboration between Brandt Peters and Unbox Industries. Each one-off is priced at $250.00 and they're available in multiple color variation.
