- 01/30/13--20:18: NECA Gremlins Series 1 Daffy Figure Video Review & Images
The first official photos for Mattel's upcoming Jor-El and General Zod Movie Masters figures have appeared at the Los Angeles Times' Hero Complex and USA Today, respectively. Zod features a plain body suit while Jor-El features an eye-catching Kryptonian armor.
Currently there's no known collect-n-connect although Toy Fair may provide some answers. However, even in the absence of a CNC, Jor-El would still be a solid addition to most collections due to the costume's general fantasy (or possibly steam punk) vibe.
To quote Soundgarden… I’ve been away for too long. So what have I been up to? Turns out, I had a lot planned for the Toy Spy. And I needed a testing ground away from The Toy Spy to make it happen. I settled in on free Kindle books. A month or so in, I...
Seems you Gurren Lagann fans, especially Nia fans, are about to get a nice surprise! Good Smile has just posted up a new entry on their website for Phat! Company's Magical Nia figure, releasing in July (just in time for Wonder Festival 2013 Summer) at ¥8,800. Nia will be 1/8-scale, sitting atop a little moon, and is based on an illustration by Sushio, with sculptwork by Ken Kawanishi (a.k.a. GRIMROCK!) and paint by Maimocchi (a.k.a. turunoyakata)
What's more, Nia comes with a very cute little Boota to display alongside of her. I imagine Pedro has got to be very happy with this, and he's probably off to pre-order her right now. You can go do that, too, since they're opening up tonight at retailers.
Adorable Valentine’s Day Cards for Geeks
I’m not one for Valentine’s day cards (Or any cards for that matter, except Yu-gi-Oh and Pokemon at one point.) but I have to admit, these cards from Paperwheel are pretty cute.
On top of that, they are really nicely designed. I love the texture to the cards. They also do other card designs, all of which feature the great textured look. They are simple and beautiful.
I wonder if they do business cards…

The Warcraft Film Finds It’s Director
It’s being reported that Moon and Source Code creator Duncan Jones is taking on the Warcraft film based in the Warcraft mythos.
This is great news as Duncan Jones is seemingly one of the brightest new directors in Hollywood. Moon was a modern sci-fi classic and while Source Code had issues, it has some really great ideas at it’s core. I have no doubt that a fantastic adaptation is in store.
Art from Chris Stevens.

Daily Graffiti: Ren & Stimpy Edition
Captain Höek and Cadet Stimpy in street art form from the episode “Space Madness” which always creeped me out as a kid. The whole thing about eating soap always made me queasy.
Entire “Space Madness” episode embedded below for great justice.
A little while ago we mentioned the trio of solos from Drilone, Jason Limon and Leecifer opening @ Stranger Factory on February 1st. Now here’s a preview of Leecifer’s ‘Long Dogs’ solo, which he kindly sent over. He’s created a large number of customs for the show including at least...
September 2011 I started my Invisalign treatment. My teeth were very crooked in front and the front right tooth was chipped. from far away it looks like a great smile but up close it was a different picture. I’ll have detailed photos from my orthodontist next week. I have to say I have had some amazing experiences because of my blog.... [Continue Reading]
Back in November Gary Ham released a small number (20, to be exact) of his Monster Toytem Classic Edition as a DesignerCon exclusive, which sold out at the show. Now he’s about to release the remaining 80 pieces (100 total) of the nifty mono/grayscale edition on his website. As with...
Young Justice and Green Lantern Animated are ending. It appears that replacing them in the DC Nation block will be a new take on Batman and a new take on Teen Titans. The new Teen Titans show appears to be modeled after the DC Nation shorts of hilarious escapades of the cast of the prior [...]
