Scott C’s Great Showdowns v2

Back by popular demand...DKE Toys has announced Scott C’s Great Showdowns v2. After quickly selling out at San Diego Comic Con 2017, this revised version will have a neon green ghost and a more accurate color scheme for our favorite ghost chaser’s outfit. This figure was sculpted by George Gaspar of Double G toys who helped bring Scott C’s characters to life.

Each two figure set is 3.75-inch scale and will come on a signed card back. All figures are hand cast and hand painted and run $120.00 each. Limit of two per household. Ordering will be open for 14 days in TheScottCShop.com or while supplies last. Expect delivery around February 2018.

Hana Early Prototype Version

Lulubell is offering a special early prototype version of the much awaited Hana figure by Junko Mizuno.

"Hana is like a representative of my current art style decorated with all the flowers and flames that appear in my paintings and drawings. She's my very first sofubi figure and I'm looking forward to creating many different versions in the future."
~Junko Mizuno

The Hana Early Prototype Version is cast with a very special process which almost gives the appearance of blown glass. The 11.5-inch tall figure is articulated in the neck, arms and legs.

The pre-order closes today (Tuesday November 21st 2017) at 5PM PT. The figure runs $95.00 plus shipping, and will ship in late Spring 2018.

REVIEW: October 2017 Loot Crate

The October 2017 Loot Crate theme encompasses all things Mythical. But it wasn’t all unicorns and fairies in this crate. Loot Crate describes the October theme as the “things in this world beyond what science has explained”.

As with other boxes, the Crate can be turned into a theme-specific item. This month, it’s Thor’s Hammer. A little ripping and folding and you get a cardboard weapon that you can use to smack around flies.

This month’s pin features the art of Gabriel Silveira. It’s his take on Dracula. I must say, I had to do a double take to make sure I was looking at this pin with the correct side up.

Ghostbusters T-Shirt

Every month, we get to add another t-shirt to our burgeoning collection of pop culture related tees. October 2017 was from one of the most iconic sci-fi films of the 1980’s – Ghostbusters. A little different from your traditional Ghostbusters logo, this version features blue and pink pastels with cheesy 80’s graphic embellishments.

SuperEmoScenes Stranger Things Diorama Figure
(Licensed by Netflix. Designed by J Salvador. Loot Crate Exclusive.)

Loot Crate included a collectible diorama depicting artist J Salavador’s take on the showdown between Eleven and the Demogorgon. (That’s from the Season 1 finale, so I’m not dropping any Season 2 spoilers) This is my first time seeing the SuperEmoScenes style. I’m digging it. I like seeing new designer toys lines hit that once bustling market.

Thor and Loki PhatMojo Figure
(Licensed by Marvel. Designed by PhatMojo. Loot Crate Exclusive.)

This is one of those “I have no idea how to feel about this” figure. I’m not a huge fan of Thor or Loki. The design doesn’t do much for me. And the fact that it’s a diorama style piece means you have to display them in this action pose.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer “Mr. Pointy” Bookmark
(Licensed by FOX. Designed by Loot Crate. Loot Crate Exclusive.)

I think I need to read more. But I sort of go through phases where I want to read physical books and then others where I only want to read off of my Kindle. If I’m doing the Kindle thing…this won’t be very useful. But if I’m reading a physical book and ever have to defend myself? I will want this…

The Loot Crate subscription runs $15.99 for a single month; $13.25/mo for 3 months$12.95/mo for 6 months$11.95/mo for 12 months. Each Crate features over $45.00 retail value of collectible goods and gear.

Kosrobot has released his Spidey-Bruv figure, the first of a series called Luxury Money Cartel. Spidey-Bruv is a 6 inch action figure, with 5 points of articulation, magnetic joints and some fun accessories. Hand made of soft resin, this figure has the feel of a factory made toy. It includes three accessories - Supreme Money Gun, Gangsta Chain, and Money.

It is now available at store.kosrobot.com for $35.00 plus $11.00 for worldwide shipping.

"Tired of his regular life, Spidey took to the streets to become real gangsta. As fate and hustle hard would have it, he found the Luxury Money Cartel where he became the Iron Poppa's right-hand man. He constantly gets into trouble, but in the end always gets cash and results. He likes big butts and swag life.

Spidey-Bruv’s favorite kicks are Yeezy Boost 350
and his favorite accessory is Supreme Money Gun."
