Hot Toys Brings The Original T-800 To Life In 1/6 Scale. And Boy Does That Shit Look Nice   Leave a comment

Hey everybody,

The original Terminator is still a great film, It kicks the shit out of that McG crap a few years ago. In 1984 we first got a taste of  director James Cameron’s real feel for kinetic storytelling, a great focus on design and vision on pushing the boundaries of special effects.

The movie also gave us Arnold Schwarzenegger as the cyborg killer from the future T-800 Terminator.

Hot Toys out of Honk Kong has just announced the 1984 version of the T-800 in 1/6 scale.figure  As usual the detailing is super sick.

The outfit is looking tight from the Tech Noir club scene, screen accurate down to the last detail.

The detailing is getting better on every figure hot toys has been producing in the last few years.

This Head sculpt looks nuts. Perfect likeness of the 1984 Arnold Schwarzenegger. Head Sculpted by Yulli, Head Painted by JC. Hong , Head Art Directed by JC. Hong. Absolutely Incredible.

They really seen to give their Schwarzenegger figures special attention. obviously big fans of the Terminator series at Hot Toys. This shit kick some serious ass,much like Arnold in many of his movies.

As usual I can’t wait to see what Hot Toys have in store for the future.

till next time

San Diego Comic-Con 2010 Wrap Up   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

For the last decade late July always means Comic-Con time in San Diego. A hundred and twenty thousand plus humans a day descend upon the San Diego convention center to preview everything in the world to do with movies, comics, art, collectibles, dolls  and a lot more.

I always get a kick out of the picture from the floor, Comic-Con is the place for people watching. There’s something refreshing about people who don’t give a shit about what others think of them or have lost a serious bet. It can only be one of the two,  you be the judge.

I really like The Street Fighter game series to, but MY GOD!!!!  This guy’s got balls of steel to leave to house that way. Even if it was Halloween, that would still take king kong balls to pull this one off .

Without seeing their faces, was it the kid or the dad’s idea to dress up in full plastic costumes in July during a heat wave? You can almost make out what the kid is thinking by the way he’s standing. Two words, HEAT STROKE

And Freddy the chef. I’m not even sure what to say about this one. I guess the positive thing to say is that he’s being really creative with his time at the hospital. or maybe not?

I guess after showing you the fat guy in his red undies I should throw  in some hot girls, but I really couldn’t find any this year, so I opted for the Leia in gold bikini twins. I think a couple nerds head exploded upon seeing these two make out for about 15 seconds. Seriously.I guess they never had Cinemax as Kids. Where good looking people just bump into each other for some casual sex. I miss the late 80’s early 90’s. Average girls in skimpy costumes seems to be the norm here in San Diego. Imagine that in a College town.

As always there is a large amount of movie collectibles and large film props about the convention floor. I can’t wait for the new Tron movie. I think a lot of people are going to be very surprised by what they see. The bikes look super sick (that means really really neat o) .

Looks like Gentle Giant Got the license for Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch. starting thing of with four 1/4 scale statues. looking pretty interesting. Looking  more forward to seeing the movie now after seeing the visuals form the trailer. The characters look cool.

Gentle Giant is also bringing us something different with the Star Wars license this year…

They have taken the ’77 Kenner figure designs and made them all 12″ tall. You see the size comparison with the original figures. These look very cool. I think it is a great idea, very nostalgic.

Over at the Sideshow Collectibles booth they always have some super cool stuff to check out.

These are all 1:1 scale. Amazing work done on all of them.

Newest 1:1 bust announcement for the Con. Love the desert weathered 3-PO. The eyes light up as well. SICK!

Pictures don’t do this one justice at all. The weathering on the helmet is very very impressive. The head also swivels to place the head in different positions. I think I maybe be in love…

1/6 scale Yoda and Dagobah Environment  looks amazing. Wasn’t expecting this one at all. Strong Work Sideshow. I think the Star Wars 12″ line is only getting better.

The new Hammerhead figure looks great and  the cantina environments are great. I like the idea of building a 1/6 scale set.

And of course Han with always be the one who shot first. None of this digital, “shot out of no where” shit.

Nothing like a little green hot dog meat. The Gamorrean Guard looks pretty on point, snotty nose and all.

Nothing that the kids want more than an old man in his deluxe lazy boy, pretty fancy for sure. Boy that recliner looks extremely comfy right about now.

Hot Toy is doing the Predators license of course. Starting off strong with the Berserker Pred. This guy is huge, accurate scale for 1/6 scale. The body is done beautifully, great detailing on the figure and accessories.

The Royce figure looks good. The outfit and weapons are top notch. Adrien Brody apparently wasn’t very happy with the sculpt so that should be worked on for the final  productionpiece.

Hot Toys bring us another character from Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards Col. Hans Landa. Look nice. Not a hundred percent convinced on the head sculpt yet. Need to see more angles. But the Aldo rains was so good I’m betting this one will be a great piece in hand.

It look like Hot Toys is hitting the Marvel universe hard this year with the long rumored Ghost Rider figure finally making an apperance. Ready to hit the pump jack in all that leather. As well as a sick bike to go with your Johnny Blaze figure, flaming tires and all.

Out of all the Iron Man stuff Hot Toys have done (and it’s all very impressive)  this is the only must buy for me. I like the way they’ve approached the female figure as of late. The rooted hair worked really well on the Silk Specter figure form last year. I’m sure this one is just as well done, the sculpt is a knock out likeness of Scarlett and the body looked bang on. The superb work keeps flowing out of  Hot Toys in Honk Kong. Very excited for the future from this company.

And Triad Toys finally shows me something I might be interested in, 1/6 scale figures from the Lone Wolf and Cub series. If you’ve never seen any of the seven films from the 70’s  based on the Lone Wolf and Cub (子連れ狼, Kozure Ōkami?) manga series, you should check them out. Really good sword play with tonnes of spraying blood and quirky characters. They’re a lot of fun and crazy cool.

And I give you another interesting heat stroke victim above, Chef Vader serving up some Jar Jar head? Sweet! I wonder how many grams of mushrooms it might take to get someone in that suit, during a summer heat wave in California? Anyone?

Well Comic-Con 2010 has come and gone. As much as I jest about all  the humans at the convention center, you really do meet some great friendly people that aren’t too crazy. Just the right level of nuts, not the “I’m going to dress my four year old toddler up in a five hundred dollar plus costume so he can suffocate a slow death through out the day” nuts.

If you’ve ever wondered about going to San Diego one year for Comic-Con but aren’t sure if  you could handle the crowds of crazy fan boys and girls. I’ll share with you the one thing that helped me a few years ago when I had the fortune of going all expenses payed through a movie I was involved in…

Incredible Hulk s . Two different shots of high end cognac mixed together. A few of those with breakfast to start the day after 3 to 4 hours of sold sleep before hitting the panel rooms. A few more with lunch and the crowds don’t seem so bad. Imagine that. A hundred and twenty thousand humans a day through the convention center. What a show. The real key is to get a hotel booked that is close to the Con, that way you can retreat to your room or pool side if the humans get to be too much. Maybe even head down to the bar for another drink…

You never know when you’ll run into a legend and get to have few beverages together.

Trust me, it’s a blast. I can’t wait to go back again soon.

till next time. keep reading friends.
