Warner Brothers x Funko – Marvin the Martian: Space Clones Custom Show for SDCC

Sket_SpaceClones-2

Marvin the Martian fans (and who isn’t ?) will want to be sure to drop by the Funko Pop Up Shop at the Funko SD offices during SDCC (7.20-7.23).  Warner Brothers and Funko have collaborated on a custom art show featuring artist customs of the 9” DIY Space Clones Mega Dorbz vinyl of our favorite Martian. A quick browse on IG revealed a diverse group of artists with a few names well known to art toy fans—Sket One (above) and Shiffa, at least one comic book superstar—Jim Lee, and a nice selection of artists from various backgrounds including Karol Banach, Mel Copes, Shamsia Hassani, Sonny Liew, Kristen Liu-Wong, Love Each Other, Nikkiciri, Kerby Rosanes, Gustavo Rimada, Vivian Ritter,Marc Sandoval, Sonny Boy, Turan (@sonertattooer) and Tasya van Ree.

Hit the jump for a quick preview of the pieces we spotted.   The Space Clones customs will be auctioned off to benefit CalArts’ scholarship programs.   

The show fits nicely into the cartoon-centric Funko Pop Up which will feature a large number of exclusives including Pop! versions of Marvin and Duck Dodgers. For more info, check out the Funko Blog which breaks down the exclusive action: part one and part two.

Ah yes, now we come to THE question… Will Space Clones be released as a DIY vinyl after the show?  No definitive answer yet, but seems quite possible.

Jermaine Rogers at SDCC – A New Treasure Trove of Toys

SDCCveileastad

Perhaps somewhere known only to the Dero, Jermaine Rogers has stashed away a toy chest full of figures, waiting for their time in the sun.  For SDCC, he’s cracked the chest wide open with at least five new art toy releases dropping from his booth [#4532].

SDCCveilad

Let’s start with Veil.  There are two new Veil: Specimen #72 editions-–Dero Skin (125 pcs) and Shadow (300 pcs). In addition, there’s the wild new Veil: East (10”, 500 pcs). The panda-esque new figure appears to feature a Specimen #72 head and body with newly sculpted arms—a great addition the new Veil family.
 

SDCCcreepingad17

Jermaine will also release a new edition of Dero CreepingSpectre (50 pcs) features super clear resin with lime green GID resin swirled throughout.  It looks fresh in regular light, and downright ghostly or is that ghastly in the dark.

BELIEVE

beLIEve—a new resin sculpt will make it’s debut at SDCC as well.  All we have so far is a teaser featuring a demon-like, four-fingered hand. Very interesting.  No word if this will see a release at Comic-Con or will be display-only with a release in the future.

SDCCCandymanad

For something completely different, Mr. Rogers has collaborated with the mad geniuses over at Special Ed. Toys on The Candyman resin action figure—an homage to Gene Wilder’s turn as Willy Wonka. This one will be released in limited quantities each day (7.19 – 7.23) in both a regular painted edition (50 pcs) and a Grape edition cast in translucent purple (25 pcs).

SDCCpinsAD

In addition to the new army of toys, there are also new pins! T here’s Dero Trance available in both standard and shadow variants.  If you’re looking to make a splash, there’s also the Aleppin Sane Glam edition featuring a speckled, silver/gray design. All of this goodness will be available at Jermaine’s booth [#4532].

UNKLE x Super 7 25th Anniversary Action Figures (7.22-7.23)

http-%2F%2Fhypebeast.com%2Fimage%2F2017%2F07%2Fsuper7-Unkle-25-year-anniversary-1
Super7 has been teasing their upcoming collaboration with UNKLE, set to drop at a special two-day event at their San Diego location (7.22-7.23).  Thanks to a nice Hypebeast article we now know that the mysterious project is actually an UNKLE action figure and record combo packaged inside a  matching Pointman clamshell—part of UNKLE’s 25th anniversary.  Very nice. 

As Hypebeast mentions, the design of the new figure is based on the OG figures released by Mo’Wax  in support of UNKLE’s 1998 debut album, Psyence Fiction. The original figures were designed by Ben Drury based on Futura’s signature Pointman character.  The new figures will be released in three colorways-–pink camo, green camo, and blue camo.  As you can see the sculpt is very close to the 1998 designs, with perhaps a bit more style and flair.  Pointman now has a subtle facial expression, his gear is slightly reworked, and the differing arm lengths are more exaggerated.  As with the OG figures, the new figures come with a clear stand—doubling as a capsule-style record—in order to display the feetless figures. Each figure comes with a different vinyl single: Pink-The Road, Blue-Nowhere to Run and Green-Looking for the Rain.

The UNKLE x Super7 Action Figures will be limited to 500 pieces in each colorway and will be available for $50 each at the UNKLE event at Super7 San Diego (7.22 – 7.23).  The new figures look great, have a nice backstory, and would be a nice compliment to the later Medicom produced UNKLE toys.

3DRetro is Morphin with Jason David Frank at SDCC (7.22-7.23)

3Dretro will host Jason David Frank, the original Green Ranger of Mighty Morphin Power Ranger fame, at their SDCC booth [#5250]. He’ll be signing on Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM [7.22-7.23] until he’s signed for the Last Fan Standing (very cool).  In addition to meeting Jason, you’ll be able to pick up two new Green Ranger themed prints from Juan Muniz and Jerome Lu as well as an exclusive JDF robot by 1000 Toys.  If you grew up watching and imitating (we know you did!) the Power Rangers, you’ll definitely want to make a visit to the 3DRetro booth.
