New 1/6 Jacket Edition Added To Reward Tier for Hotline Miami Kickstarter from ESC Toy


The Hotline Miami Kickstarter to fund the 1/6 figure from ESC Toy reached their initial pledge goal of $60K not long after the campaign launch (Congrats!), and they're now pushing on with more, even surpassing their Stretch Goal of US$75K - offering up a new "SOAKED" Edition of the Jacket figure (seen above-left, limited to 100pcs) with it being a "Kickstarter Exclusive", while shown above-right is the (previously seen but worthy of a post of it's own) "MIDNIGHT MIAMI MARAUDER" Edition, with this 100pcs run priced at US$200 each.

Pop! Television: The Walking Dead Series 5 from Funko


Truth be told, I lost my attention and desire for The Walking Dead by the middle of Season Two, after a spectacular binge-watching of Season One, and haven't made it back since … but then again, the "toys" never failed to interest me, even though I might not kow the depth of story for it LOL

Funko has been steadily doing pretty decent with their Pop! Vinyl-adaptations, and to help usher in Season 5 (returning on US-screens on October 12th), comes the latest series of character adaptations featuring both survivors and walkers, including their "first" pull-apart figure! *YEW-SWEET*

Available in September, so check in with your fav retailers for pricing and availability :)

Two Custom KR Mascot Bots from Infiniterabbits

"I've recently painted up two custom 3" Kidrobot Bots based on iconic album art/T-shirts from my youth -- Kid Misfit and Kid Pleasures. Both are available in my online store." shared Thomas /Infinite Rabbits/
And while the paint-app is certainly recognizable as IR's work, the "insane eye-twitch vibe" (or so I call his works ;p) is missing here, and somewhat "refreshing" to see his range, IMHO.
