A Large Evil Corporation X Funko = Awesome Toyness!

"We’re very excited to let you all know that we are now working with the brilliant toy company Funko, in order to bring the vinyl designs to life! We hope to have more official news soon…stay tuned!" - Announced A Large Evil Corporation (Circa Nov 21).
My personal excitement level has hit the roof! And a right perfect-fit too, with Funko's wide array of licensed properties! Besides their Three Flavours Cornetto Series and Star Wars characters, here are some more creations from the UK-based animation agency!



Police Spinner Pull-Back Car from "Blade Runner" by Medicom Toy

As one of my all-time favorite sci-fi films, there really isn't much by way of "toy collectibles" for Ridley Scott's classic "Blade Runner" movie. There've been the bootlegged 1/6th-scale "Deckard" (I have two versions), Tomenosuke's Handgun / Blasters (Want All, Have None :p), and one of my "grails": A Police Spinner vehicle, that came along with a DVD-set …. Medicom Toy now adds ONE MORE collectible to that list: Presnting the POLICE SPINNER PULL-BACK CAR!


Manufactured by Medicom Toy, featuring a sculpt by Yoshihisa, this incarnation of the POLICE SPINNER features a more "super-deformed" aesthetic, and possess a "pull-back" function where the model vehicle has "independent motion"!

Sized 70mm long, and limited to 3,000pcs, the POLICE SPINNER PULL-BACK CAR is part of the BLADE RUNNER (THE FINAL CUT / WORKPRINT) Blu-ray Edition, with a December 17th, 2014 release. Distribution price is ¥5,980 (tax).

Medicom Toy offers up the latest STAR WARS X A BATHING APE VCDs (Vinyl Collectible Dolls) - featuring BOBA FETT (in two versions!) and a SCOUT TROOPER!

Both VCD BOBA FETT(TM) ESB Ver. and VCD BOBA FETT(TM) ROJ Ver. ("Empire Strikes Back" and "Return Of the Jedi", if you were wondering ;p) have a SRP of ¥9,500 each, as is the 164mm tall VCD SCOUT TROOPER.

STORY: "Silent War is a cyberpunk spy manga series set in the year 2030 in an alternate earth, where most national armed forces have been privatized and private military contractors (enforcement agencies) maintain the peace in the wake of a failed global disarmament, accelerating technological and cultural disruption through onset of cybernetics, direct brain-computer-interfacing and corporatocracy. The story follows the journey of Armour security, a PMC led by Sarius Saad, a jaded mercenary who is entangled in the maelstrom of a momentous event that shakes the core of even international superpowers and could spell the beginnings of an apocalypse."

Launched right after their appearance at ITGCC over the weekend, is Writer Mark Koh x Artist Shawn Siow's SILENT WAR on www.crowdtivate.com, with a target of SGD$10K to print, distribute and promote the debut BOOK ZERO of the series.
