The Force Awakens: Black Series "The First Order Stormtrooper" by Hasbro to debut at #SDCC2015


Making a debut at this year's San Diego Comic Con is this Black Series First Order Stormtrooper figure from Hasbro, with this 6" tall articulated action figure the based on the new Storm Trooper design seen in the upcoming Star Wars 7 / "The Force Awakens" movie directed by JJ Abrams! We've seen plenty of studio snaps circulating in the www for some time now, but StarWarsTheBlackSeries scored a sample and they have snaps galore to share, and frankly nothing beats in-hand pics, IMHO.

Currently available for sales online at dllcustoms.storenvy.com is the "GO SOFTLY" - JUNGOL - Multipack Playset from Derrick Lauglaug AKA DLL Customs - priced at US$65 a piece plus shipping. I like this notion of a short film + toy package, and wish that I could see more of this type of cross-overs, IMHO.

Originally sold as an edition of 3 pieces in April of 2014 at the Atlanta Film Festival screening of GO SOFTLY by JUNGOL. This internet only version is the last time these will be made."

Skeletor’s Lair Exclusive Masters of the Universe Stage 01 Prototype Action Figure Collection!

WHAT: "When you think of the He-Man and Masters of the Universe Action Figures from the 80’s, you instantly imagine a genre defining toy style packed with big muscles and even bigger playsets. But what if there was more to the story? What if a toy sculptor had started from a different point of view before changing the toy proportions to what we know today. What if those prototypes were found? What if?

Super7 is proud to present a new history thirty years in the making! Feast your eyes on the Masters of the Universe Stage 01 Prototype Action Figure collection, which were sculpted by one of the original Star Wars sculptors from the 70’s. Closely resembling the 1970’s era 3 3Ž4” scale action figures, The Masters of the Universe Stage 01 Prototype Action Figure collection set includes 4 unpainted figures each with their unique individual weapons: He-Man and the Power Sword, Skeletor and his Havoc Staff, Mer-Man and his sword and Beastman with his whip. They will be available only at Skeletor’s Lair during SDCC at 701 8th Ave., San Diego, CA 92101. Each set will retail $60 and is limit one per person."
SDCC 2015 Exclusive M.O.T.U.S.C.L.E.!

WHAT: "The Keshi (eraser) toy boom of 1970s Japan gave rise to the Kinnikuman Kinkeshi figures, known in the USA as M.U.S.C.L.E. (Millions of Unusual Small Creatures Lurking Everywhere)! Consisting of 236 small rubber figures, belts, fight rings and garbage containers, the M.U.S.C.L.E. line brought by Mattel into households everywhere introduced a unique figure format to children of the 1980s. At the same time, the Mattel-created titanic toy line Masters of the Universe was redefining the landscape of action figures! Amazingly, the paths of these two enormous entities never crossed….until now!…"

About That Bootleg Artist Mix Iron Man figure (from TOUMA x Hot Toys)


"Bootleggery" rears it's head in a new form, this time as a Artist Mix figure, featuring the designs of TOUMA for Hot Toys! Truthfully I am dying to own the entire series, but a "bootleg"? Although I am not too surprised as vinyl figures often get replicated (unlike Hot Toy's uber headsculpts for 1/6 hahaha) … "Thero Dennis" shares with us the story of how the figure came about, and we have snaps to share as well! Note that no actual names are used (this is not a name-n-shame post) nor will any be divulged here (by myself anyways), but is meant as a reference to your purchasing considerations.
"… I bought (this) from ebay actually. That guy posted a bunch of official photos of this product, spotted a 98.6% positive rating which had 1000 plus reviews, and were at half the price. I thought, well, it could be a bootleg, but it's worth a try. So i went ahead to buy it. But then..." -shared Thero Dennis.

"The product was claimed to be shipped from Singapore, which isn't. China to be specific. Then when you message the seller, he doesn't reply. The 15USD shipping fee does not come with a box. He messages you to ask 5USD for it to come with a box (which I refused) and thus the squashed condition. Then when I received it, (a) damn poor quality of a bootleg it is. Nowhere near to a real (item). Like I don't mind a bootleg, but this kind of quality is really bad. You don't even want to put it on display."
"Then I messaged him to ask for a refund etc, but I guess other than giving him money, he won't reply to your messages. So I decided to lodge a complaint to paypal and get my money back. Hahaha.

Then I bought the real one from a Hongkong seller. So much more trustworthy, though it cost more, at the original price though!"
-added Thero Dennis.
