Cena Makes a Scene-a in His Big Toy Debut…

Cena01 Cena02

Yikes. If I had monsters under my bed, they’d all be leaping out the window right about now. I’d almost forgotten I’d be getting a big box from Wicked Cool Toys, makers of a ton of fun licensed toys in plenty of popular brands (Marvel, DC, Disney, TMNT, and more). Anwyay, while at Toy Fair earlier this year, I got an invite to see what was coming in terms of WWE goodies in their Ringside Collectibles line and at the end of the tour, the bunch of us who attended were told by Jan Van Tine (the hyper-perky lady with the computer memory you should meet one of these days because she’ll remember your name even if you’re in a group of about 50 people) we’d be getting a big surprise in the post.

Well, color me surprised (and how!). It seems that only 100 of these were made, the outer carton says it’s #75 of 100, but that seems to refer to the carton, as the figure says it’s #1 of 100. Oh, I’ll work through all that numbering in a bit. Right now, I need to figure out where to put Mr. C before he starts stomping around and eating whatever is left in the fridge. Hmmm. I wonder what over-sized plastic wrestlers eat, anyway? I think I have one or two Crashlings left over from Toy Fair here, so perhaps I’ll drop those in the carton and see what happens. Wait. If he eats them all, I’ll need MORE Crashlings! A-ha. THAT’S how they get you sucked in to buying all that stuff, folks! The secret is OUT.

Hikari Friday Time! Skeletor and Astro Boy Looking for Good Homes!

Hikari logoIt’s finally Friday and you know what what means, right? Yep, the Funko freebie parade continues! This week’s giveaway consists of two more limited edition Hikari Sofubi figures you KNOW you want to try to win. And if you don’t win them, guess what? You can still buy them at one of two locations. Yeah, usually, it’s one location (your favorite Funko emporium, usually a decent comic shop or some other retailer who has a Funko section), but one of these is another Entertainment Earth exclusive that can only be obtained via pre-order or hoping it’s still in stock when it drops into that online shop for sale.

Anyway, behold the Metallic Skeletor Hikari Sofubi Figure!

Metallic Skeletor
 
Isn’t he cute? Well, actually… he’s kind of cranky because metallic fur shorts kind of chafe him (ouch!). But he’s SKELETOR, dangit! He can handle a bit of chafing! Lucky winner gets #1 of 2000! Meanwhile, waiting in the wings is Metallic Mix Astro Boy Hikari Sofubi Figure (smile, kid – you’re up!):

Metal Mix Astro Boy
 
As noted above, he’s an Entertainment Earth exclusive limited to 1000 pieces. Well, 999 pieces because Funko is giving someone the first one off the line! Okay, you know the drill by now, right? Go to one of Funko’s social spots:

Follow the rules and you’re all set to (possibly) be one of two lucky winners! Now that’s you’re thrilled to death, go enter NOW and keep those fingers crossed. If you lose out this week, you can buy Skeletor this month at wherever you buy your other Funko stuff and Astro Boy is available to pre-order now at Entertainment Earth for its November release. As always, if you enter this giveaway, good luck!

Hikari Friday: Funko Frees Funky Frankensteins For Fortunate Few!

Hikari logo 
Oh, these two Funko Hikari giveaways this week are pretty cool-looking takes on the Universal version of Frankenstein’s Monster. First up, that Glitter Shock Frankenstein Hikari Sofubi Figure (#1 0f 1200) looks as if he fell out of a passing UFo and landed on is flat head, doesn’t he? Those eerie black eyes, that almost glowing green complexion… yeah, he’s Space Frankenstein’s Monster for sure:

Glitter Shock Frankenstein Hikari Sofubi Figure 

Meanwhile, poor Premium Distressed Frankenstein Hikari Sofubi Figure (#1 of 600 and an Entertainment Earth EXCLUSIVE, by the way) looks pretty pissed off because he’s just woken up and there’s not a cup of coffee or Egg McMutton to be found anywhere and everyone knows you HAVE to feed the monster or else he gets cranky. Either that, or he’s already had breakfast and is all ready to head out and play. Um, I’d get any little flower-picking girls away from any bodies of water, folks.

Premium Distressed Frankenstein 
As usual, you know the drill – hit up one of Funko’s social network spots:

Enter and get to the crossing of fingers and wearing of assorted good luck charms in order to bring some lucky luck your merry way. If you lose this time out (again?), you can always hit up your favorite Funko retailer for Glitter Shock Frankie in November and Entertainment Earth in December for that Premium Distressed Frankie. Good luck otherwise!

MEDICOM & Bear Model’s Swamp Thing Sofubi Gets Me Seeing Green All Over…

Swampy SofubiAs big a fan of DC Comics’ Swamp Thing as I am, I tend to only stick to reading the comics and doing the occasional bit of fan art when I have the time to tinker around with assorted art materials. Anyway, news of this limited edition figure popped into my inbox very early this morning (I happened to be up and working on an emergency proofreading job for a friend) and I allllllmost reconsidered making space somewhere for it before I came to my senses and realized that I really have no room for anything this nice and large.

The first over-sized DC Sofubi from MEDICOM and Bear Models stands just over 10 inches tall and weighs a hefty 24 ounces. hey, for tat size, 24 ounces IS hefty! Boxed, it’s a bit taller and a tiny bit heavier, of course 9and if I had one, it would stay in that box, folks!). Anyway, only 300 of these exist, they’re $99.99 ($50 off the retail price!) and they’re only available through GoHastings’ web store, so go grab one if you want a nice looking collectible for your shelf. Or MY shelf if you decide you want to get me something cool that will make me knock a hole in a wall here to store it in…

Funko Unmasks Batman For The Masses (Well, Provided Those Masses Shop at Target)!

Funko Blue CrownWhat, was there a vinyl shortage or something, Funko? Not only did you reveal Batman’s secret identity to the world, you’re releasing this new Pop! Vinyl collectible exclusively through Target, one of the bigger retailers out there this week. EVIL! I can here that PA system now: “Attention Target shoppers! Get your Exclusive Unmasked Batman Pop! before they sell out!” EEEEEVIL!

Target Exclusive Unmasked Batman Pop 

Of course, me posting this along with that image above means I’m an accomplice to all this, but that’s the “news” business these days, folks. Show those pics – get those clicks!

Hikari Friday Time! Funko Foists FOUR Figures For Free!

Hikari logo 

Yes indeed, Funko wants to make FOUR lucky winners very happy this week, one each will nab the first one off the line of these cool Hikari Sofubi Vinyl figures. This week it’s more Transformers up for grabs. Check out the Distressed Optimus Prime Premium Hikari Sofubi Figure and Distressed Bumblebee Premium Hikari Sofubi Figure:

Distressed Optimus Prime Premium Hikari Sofubi Figure 

Distressed Bumblebee Premium Hikari Sofubi Figure 
Get your chance to win at one of Funko’s social network sites:

Instagram @OriginalFunko

As usual, those first two figures will be available at your favorite Funko retailer in case you’re not a lucky winner. And yes, the reason those two robots in disguise are distressed is because they’re temporarily homeless and are getting a bit desperate to find a shelf or space to camp out on as they plot their revenge against the Decepticons who destroyed their planet!

On the other hand, the even MORE limited edition (and exclusive) Books-A-Million transformers, 24k Optimus Prime Hikari Sofubi Figure and 24k Bumblebee Hikari Sofubi Figure are only available online and are limited to 600 pieces each. Have a look at these shiny beauties:

Books-A-Million Exclusive 24k Optimus Prime Hikari Sofubi Figure 

Books-A-Million Exclusive 24k Bumblebee Hikari Sofubi Figure 

And before you even ask, NO, they’re NOT REAL 24K gold at all. I’d not even want to imagine the weight of one of these figures or if an actual gold Transformer figure existed, who’d have enough disposable cash to buy one. Then again, there ARE gold and silver encased PlayStation 4’s for sale in Dubai, so it’s not a total impossibility… Anyway, good luck!

Mezco Toys’ All Treat-No Trick Mystery Box: 310 Cheap Chances To Score Big!

(thanks, CentralMarkup!)
 

Mezco Mystery Box“What’s in the box?… WHAT’S IN THE BOX?! Yeah, yeah. Anyway, Mezco Toyz isn’t telling because they want you to BUY one or a couple of these $20 steal deals and I’m not telling because hell, I have NO idea other than you’ll get at LEAST $40 worth of goodies for that money. All I can say is it’ll be one or more items from the company’s popular Universal Monsters, Chucky, The Living Dead Dolls, Sons Of Anarchy, Breaking Bad, Mez-Itz, Axe Cop, or other product lines. Yeah, you know you’re curious, yellow. Or blue because you want more of these than you can afford (“let’s see now, 310 times $20 is…”). So goes the wild life of the American consumer, right? Anyway, get your own box before they’re all gone!
