It’s been raining in California for days, but I can’t complain – it’s the start of the weekend and I’m opening toys. Today’s booty – a bunch of Big Screen and Comic Book Superstars from Kasual Friday. In the mix are the figures from Rocky II, III, and IV, and Ash from Army of Darkness, Robocop, and the Phantom. Our longtime pal Scott George, one of the founders of Kasual Friday, sent these over from the East Coast (where the weather hasn’t been much better). Thanks, Scott!
Now, it will take me some time to get take proper pics, but this being Friday and the toys being from Kasual Friday, I felt compelled to put something up today. And, when I do have better pics, we’ll also do a Free Stuff giveaway of the Italian Stallion and Clubber Lang. One lucky winner will get the pair with Rocky in his yellow trunks, because we all know it’s more fun when Clubber wins. And yes, I know – Clubber wears the blue trunks in that fight, but as Wesley Snipes says, always bet on black. (Translation: we only have Clubber in his black trunks.)
So stay tuned for the pics and giveaway, and have a great weekend!
Mezco has shared some new high res pics of their One:12 Collective Dark Knight Returns Batman, including an “x-ray” shot that shows just how super-articulated the figure is underneath that black and gray (or dark blue and gray, for the Mezco exclusive) batsuit. This figure has been at the top of my most wanted list since Mezco introduced the One:12 Collective line at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

Without further ado, here’s the index for the entries for CustomCon 38:
Light turn-out this time around. We’ll do a better job publicizing the event for next time. Thanks to Rabid_Ewok, Fizzle, and Death Weed for submitting entries, and to all who stopped by!
Coming this winter to CustomCon 38 is an all new series of Star Wars action figures, the Kenner Collection! This series of retro styled figures is being created as a continuation of the original Star Wars line from the 1980’s, and will consist of figures that were never made in the vintage series. Featuring characters from both the movies and the expanded universe, no corner of the Star Wars multiverse is off limits.
Series 1, available exclusively at CustomCon 38, will consist of 8 figures: Mongo Beefhead Tribesman, Rebel Trooper, Grand Moff Tarkin, Grand Admiral Thrawn, Captain Pellaeon, Biggs Darklighter, Jek Porkins, and Y-Wing Pilot.

I’m not sure “Marvel Monday” is really a thing, but it certainly feels that way with these two updates. First, the official Marvel Store is running an up-to-25% off deal, today only, with the “MARVELMONDAY” code. You have to add $100 to your cart to qualify for the full 25%, or $50 for 15% – you’ll qualify for free shipping too. Marvel Select is already on sale for $20 each, but where it can really pay off is in the collectibles section, where that 25% off makes a big dent in Hot Toys items.
And, thanks to our pal Rodney, who gave us the heads-up that pre-orders for the Marvel Legends Allfather series have started popping up on eBay. This listing for the Allfather has all seven figures (Captain Marvel, Sentry, Hawkeye, Machine Man, Scarlet Witch, Thor, and Iron Fist) up for $159. That’s not that bad of a deal when you consider free shipping – 9 sets left as of this morning. Happy shopping!
The holidays are a great time to pick up figures on sale as retailers look to clear slower movers at the end of the year. So while you won’t see any of the harder to find figures on this list, you may be able to fill some gaps in your collection or get some fodder for customizing projects. Here are some of the lowest-priced Marvel Legends at Amazon. I’ve picked out the ones that qualify for Prime shipping – even if you’re not a Prime member, getting over $25 in your cart will qualify you for free 2-day shipping.
There’s a lot more Marvel Legends at Amazon on sale – I just picked ones I saw under $12. Happy shopping!
3A Toys has the first figure from its Transformers license available for pre-order starting tonight. It’s the premium scale Bumblebee. He stands 15-inches tall and is hyper-articulated, with 65 points of articulation. Despite the articulation, Bumblebee does not transform – but with this level of sculpted detail I don’t think you would really expect that. He features LED lights, but does not feature sounds – so thankfully there’s no radio soundbites cobbled together so he can “talk” to us. (Thanks for that, Michael Bay!)
My wallet is thanking me that I’m not a hardcore Transformers collector – he tips the scales at $390. If you must have this, you can pre-order the 3A Toys Bumblebee at Bambaland for a 2Q’15 delivery.
