Odds ‘n Ends > Halloween begins, S.H.MonsterArts AvP, random plugs

odds-n-ends-halloween-horror-2

  • It’s Halloween season! For as much holiday fun as can be fit into a blog, be sure you’re following Dinosaur Dracula, the current blog of Matt Caracappa, one of the minds behind the late, great X-Entertainment.com. Oh, and be sure to keep an eye around here as well, of course.
  • Pixel Dan has three new video reviews of upcoming MOTUC figures: Geldor, Strongor (Strongarm), and everyone’s favorite(?) pink bunny dictator, Plundor!
  • Speaking of Pixel Dan, it looks like he’s getting another #MyMosquitor – a new Mutagen Man for the current TMNT line, coming in spring. (I must confess I prefer the more grotesque vintage version a bit more.)
  • I’ve never even seen Alien vs. Predator: Requiem – even though it evidently sucks, I probably should get around to it anyway – but I’m still intrigued by the upcoming S.H.MonsterArts versions of the characters. Here’s the official Tamashii Nations page for them. They’ll run $60 apiece, of course, but they’ll be better-articulated then NECA’s figures, offer more accessories, alternate heads, and I believe they will be closer in scale to 6″ lines like Marvel Legends, Star Wars Black, and DCUC than NECA’s stuff (which is in a 7″ scale). While the movie may be dreadful, I don’t mind the designs themselves, so I’m considering getting these. The scale will probably be the determining factor for me, so I may have to see them either in person or next to some other figures first.
  • Requested plugs: T-Rav from Doomkick.com is running a contest for some cool classic villain drink coastersAcheson Creations is about 1/3rd of the way to their goal for their Kaiju Kaos: Super Robot StratoMaxx resin kit figure with just five days to go.

  • excited already for some halloween goodness… and of course by goodness, i mean pure evil from the depths of the demon realm!

    snagged some craft pumpkins from michaels last week… considering making one or more figs their own "pumpkin head" for some helloween fun.

  • AVP Requiem has some problems, but it's fun. It's far better than the first AvP movie. It's 4 out of the 5 movies featuring a Predator alien, but it's a big leap between 4 and 5.

    So… basically I find it bad, but fun bad.

  • Pardon my ignorance, but I was wondering why Geldor has that name; Is he a eunuch?

  • The Acheson Kaos monster is regarded by some as one of the top twenty five worst miniatures ever created… (chestofcolors dot com)

  • I enjoy the new Turtles cartoon but I have really gone off the character designs and the toys. The new Mutagen man looks so bland and boring compared to the original.
