The Toy Break folks - George, Ayleen, Scott, and Ben - are back for about the third hour of San Diego Comic Con coverage. They continue to reminisce about the event, take a look at some of their SDCC 2014 haul, and chat it up for Episode 320.
Mezco Toyz is already rolling out some exclusives that you'll be able to find at this year's New York Comic Con. The NYCC Exclusive Son Of Frankenstein limited edition figure will be available at Booth #1855. It stands 9" tall and features ten points of articulation, as well as a genuine simulated fur tunic with cloth sleeves.
Only 500 pieces will be available worldwide. And if you're not going to NYCC, a small number of exclusives will be available to pre-order via Mezco's online shop beginning on August 22nd 2014.
Since I don't actually have any of them...I almost always forget that those little Pop! vinyl figures from Funko are so small. It's not until I see someone manhandling one that I realize I'm either looking at the world's largest hands...or these guys are minifigs.
Then, when they release something like the Pop! Rides: TMNT Turtle Van, I reassure myself that we're not talking about something the size of a Smart car. I won't be battling any of these things for parking spots. Or maybe I will...we shall see come September 2014.
Dennaton, Devolver Digital and ESCtoy.com have joined up to launch a Kickstarter campaign to get the first ever sixth-scale (12" tall) Hotline Miami - Jacket articulated (15 points) figure into production.
Based on the award winning (and amazingly retro) PC game Hotline Miami, the figure is slated to include four removable heads: Tony (Tiger), Richard (Rooster), Aubrey (Pig), and a bloody, bandaged Jacket head. The figure also comes with interchangeable clothing including a letter jacket, t-shirt, pair of jeans, Air Vigilante sneakers and a hospital gown. There will be three weapons - a shotgun, baseball bat, and katana.
In addition to the figure, there are also funding levels that receive a Steam code for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number (not yet released) and its soundtrack, as well as pins, wallpapers, and other goodies.
This project will only be funded if at least $60,000 is pledged by Saturday, September 20th 2014 at 1:44 PM EDT. About a day in, and they've already eclipsed the 50% funding mark.
