…missed it? Don't worry, let me help you there…

You're Welcomed :)

Vinyl Idolz: Young Frankenstein from Vinyl Sugar

"Alive! It’s alive! Our new Young Frankenstein Vinyl Idolz are alive! Dr. Frederick Frankenstein - that’s FRONK-en-steen - never wanted to accept his family history, but then he found his grandfather’s diary and found himself changing his mind.

Igor is happy to steal a brain for you, as long as you don’t have your heart set on receiving the one you specifically asked for. An Abby Normal brain, perhaps?

Watch out for The Monster - if he escapes, he may try to kill you or even steal your fiancé! Hopefully you can play the violin and lure him back to safety. Coming in September!"

Wholly underrated Mel Brooks movie, as far as I am concerned, and one of my absolute favs … here's the whole flick, thanks to YouTube … Join me for a viewing? :)

Vinyl Idolz: Shaun of the Dead from Vinyl Sugar

The "wait" is finally over … soon … one of the first design images which no doubt help gaining the attention of Funko (my humble speculation, of course), was A Large Evil Corporation's rendition of "Shaun of The Dead" characters, now solicited by Vinyl Sugar for a September release! Do check in with your fav retailers for pricing and availability :)

VINYL SUGAR PRESS: "Vinyl Sugar is delighted to welcome a new set of zombie hunting Vinyl Idolz! Shaun and Ed are ready to save some lives, grab some pints at the Winchester and wait this zombie thing out…or is it too late for one of them? There’s no time like a zombie apocalypse to try to win your girlfriend back! Coming in September!"

Tony Tran (IG @claynexted) customizes a "Captain Phasma" (a chrome trooper who is an officer in the First Order for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens") from his own DIY Art Toy named TRANIMATED, and it looks awesome!

And while there's no word that this piece will be put on sale, you could contact Tony himself (at "claynextion@gmail.com" for availability details, or even straightup commission him for one!

Seen directly below is a work-in-progress of his next character custom: "Harley Quinn" from "Suicide Squad"! Looking forward to seeing how that looks when finished!

Meanwhile you can as well check out his other custom works on claynextion.bigcartel.com :)

Campbell Soup x #StarWars: The Broth Awakens!

I know the "it" thing for Star Wars: The Force Awakens NOW are the toy catalog pics (PLUS the blister carded action figure pics, PLUS the movie poster, I know, I know…), BUT I HAD to post this image of Campbell Soups FIRST, featuring Chewbacca and C3PO (Pic snapped by Ben Goretsky of 3D Retro) - because it simply had to be done, for all intergalactic broth connoisseurs. That is all.

Oh. wait. There's more? I wonder if Sheng Siong supermarkets in Singapore will stock this … heh.

Catlo Ren by Catmasktoy

As toy image leaks from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" run rampant on the www (*cough-will be posting soon-ish as well-cough*), we take a look at this splendid "homage" from Thailand's Catmask - featuring CATLO REN (bootlegging "Kylo Ren") as a fully hand-painted collectible 3-inch tall resin figure (seen below standing beside his earlier "Darth Maul / DarthMeaw" release), complete with cross-lightsabre! As well we get to see the backing board design (featured below) = FTW!

Catmasktoy's CATLO REN is now available to purchase online here for US$30 each, coming in blister carded, no quantity limit mentioned tho.

Pop! Heroes: The Phantom from Funko

FUNKO PRESS: "The Phantom comes straight from the jungles of Bangalla! This hero, known by his enemies as The Ghost Who Walks, has battled evil for centuries and set the standard for modern superheroes! Add this Pop! to your collection before he disappears! Coming in September!"
And while I may not be familiar with Lee Falk's comic strip incarnations, I will always remember the live-actin movie from 1996 - starring Billy Zane, in what may well be an underrated "comicbook film" since lost in faded memories … stripped speedos not withstanding… :p

#Deadpool Trailers Red & Green

The DEADPOOL Trailer has dropped, and seeing it's rated-R, you'd do well to check out the RED Band trailer featured above - featuring cusswords and blood, - as how Deadpool needs to be, to differentiate itself against a myriad other superhero flicks of this generation … but if you are sensitive to such verbal and visual shenanigans, then you'd do well to scroll DOWN this page and click PLAY on the below feature video for the GREEN Band Trailer.

"Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand"
