3A Toys put up a surprise pre-order for another Zomb – this time, it’s glow-in-the-dark. No background for the Oppenheimer Zomb was given with the drop, but I imagine this Zomb got the crap nuked out of him. Not sure if the pre-order will stay open past this evening.
Adventure Kartel OPPENHEIMER GID ZOMB in 1/6th scale available right now at www.bambalandstore.com for 95USD shipped.
This week we’ve got customs from across three of the major Hasbro brands:
- G.I. JOE Firefly by by Stronox – good things do come in little packages – Firefly comes decked out with a ton of accessories – if you like the work, Stronox also has a Storm Shadow up this week – ends Nov 14, 2013 10:15:51 PST
- Transformers Masterpiece Grimlock by encline_designs – ok, maybe you have a Masterpiece Grimlock already – do you have one with the headsculpt based on his look in the IDW comics? – ends Nov 14, 2013 21:31:14 PST
- Marvel Legends Deadpool by Rat Pack Studios – there’s another Deadpool up this week, from a somewhat notorious customizer who’s been accused of shill bidding on his auctions, but it’s a mishmash of costume elements from Deadpool’s various looks over time – this custom is specific and truer to the look during a very popular run in the comics, and it comes with a customized scooter from that run – awesome! – ends Nov 21, 2013 18:48:44 PST
In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!
Customizers, don’t forget to check out the submission guidelines for CustomCon 36.

If you were looking to fill the void that the non-existent Thor Marvel Legends has left in your heart, perhaps the upcoming Marvel Minimates from Thor: the Dark World will do so, 2-inches at a time. This wave of Minimates will round out the supporting cast that returned from the first movie, with Heimdall, Darcy, and Selvig. Selvig will come with his No Pants Friday alternate legs.
Darcy and Selvig will come with army builder Dark Elves, and Thor, Loki, and Malekith round out the assortment, naturally. These Thor Minimates are expected at comic book shops and specialty retailers in just a few weeks. Thor accepts your surrender.

YesAnime has shared some more pics of the Play Imaginative Super Alloy Iron Man line – this time of the quarter scale Mark 42 armor that will be going up for pre-order soon. This 18-inch diecast figure will come with a bunch of accessories – pristine and battle-damaged armor pieces, four pairs of hands, and four heads to start. Included will be the fantastic Pepper Potts / Gwyneth Paltrow head sculpt from her “Rescue” moment in Iron Man 3.
There’s a lot of value here, but is it enough to warrant the $600 – $700 price tag that’s expected? What do you think?

Entertainment Earth has got a great deal on selected Marvel Select figures today for $12.99 each as part of their Countdown to Black Friday daily sales. This is a great price on some of the larger, more popular figures to come out, like Rhino and Sabretooth. Happy shopping!
A couple of weeks ago, the Mattel Shop had a $20 or $50 off sale, but only if you spent $100 or $200. This time around it’s a bit easier – just spend over $25 and you’ll get 20% off and free shipping as part of the extended “Blue Friday” sale they kicked off yesterday.
The Superman™ Movie Masters® Bundle for $79.95 is still a great deal, for five figures. You can also get the Man of Steel figures individually, except for Faora. There’s also Batman (including Batman, Riddler, and Penguin from the Classic TV Series), DC Comics and DC Universe (why these two are separate, I don’t know), and WWE categories to search through.
In total, there’s close to 140 action figures and accessories included in the sale, so qualifying for the discount should be easy. Happy shopping!
With your help, we could be launching another small toy company with the aim of producing action figures, with a twist – the robot animal figures are made out of weapons and accessories that work with themselves or with your other toy lines. BMOG Toys just began their Kickstarter campaign to get the first two figures, a bear and a manta ray, tooled up and launched.
Sounds similar to what our pals at Spy Monkey Creations has done with the Weaponeers of Monkaa, but with BMOG (Bio-Mechanical Ordnance Gestalts), the figures and the weapons are one and the same. The Spy Monkey weapons packs have their roots very much in Masters of the Universe Classics. BMOG has its roots in Transformers – the project team members have worked with Hasbro. You can find more info on the BMOG Toys website.

Since DCon is comprised of a lot of independent artists and designers, there are a ton of exclusives available for the show this weekend. Here’s a couple that interested me as a Marvel fan.
We’ve thought about going the past couple of years, but it hasn’t quite worked out. One of these days…
