  • Black Friday Retro Toys From The Super Groovy 70s: Shogun Warriors

    Posted:2015-11-27 09:42:17 UTC-08:00

    Written By: Ken Hulsey

    Imagine being a preteen boy in the late 1970s when Mattel unleashes a series of three-foot-tall Japanese robots that shoot missiles out of their fingers upon a generation that had just begun to discover quirky Asian sci fi via afternoon and late-night movie features (Godzilla, Gamera and Ultraman). Everyone I knew had to have one of these toys. Number one, they were huge, and two they fired stuff across the room. In a pre video game America this was the pinnacle of cool toys and it gave my generation the ability to wage giant robot wars in our living room. Insert some HO scale model train buildings and some Hot Wheels cars and you could recreate any scene from a Japanese movie … if you imagination was good enough.

    After the toys initially were introduced, Mattel inserted Godzilla and soon Rodan to the toy line, taking the product to a whole new level. The somewhat smaller Godzilla figure was an instant hit, and every kid had one at the top of their Christmas list.

    I myself had several of these, including Godzilla, and to this day I relish my days shooting missiles and fists across my living room, scaring the crap out of my cat, and inflicting robot dominance over all my friends armies.

    All will tremble before me!

    History:

    Shogun Warriors were a line of toys, licensed by Mattel during the late 1970s that consisted of a series of imported Japanese robots all based on then-popular giant robot anime shows. They were originally manufactured in three sizes, the 24-inch (610 mm) plastic versions, the 3.5-inch (89 mm) diecast metal versions and the slightly taller but much more detailed and articulated 5″ diecast versions. There were also several vehicles offered and a set that could be put together to form Combattra (Combattler V).

    The most attractive features on these toys were the spring loaded launcher weapons such as missiles, star shuriken, and battleaxes. Some robots were able to launch their fists. The later diecast versions of these toys were also attractive for the ability to transform into different shapes. Raydeen, for instance, was changeable into a birdlike spaceship. These “convertible” editions were the precursors to the “Transformers” line of toy robots but unlike the later toyline it was not unusual for minor dissasembly to be required to achieve the secondary form. There was even a robot named Megatron in issue #18 of the comic, then the name was used multipe times for the leader of the evil Decepticons from Transformers. Also, the second form was not always an apparently useful one, a “giant skull” for instance.

    Like certain other toylines of the 70s, the Shogun Warriors came under pressure due to safety concerns regarding their spring loaded weapons features. Children would launch the weapons and hit other children or pets in the eye, or else they would swallow the plastic missiles. Toy manufacturers were facing new regulations due to reported child injuries as a result of playing with these toys. Consequently, many toy companies were forced to remodel existing toylines with child safe variations (such as spring loaded “action” missiles that would remain attached to the toy). For this reason, as well as decreasing sales, the Shogun Warriors toyline disappeared by 1980.

    Several of the anime from this toyline were seen in the 80s as part of Jim Terry’s Force Five series.

    Shogun Warriors was licensed in 1979–1980 for a 20-issue series by Marvel Comics, which was written by Doug Moench and featured art by Herb Trimpe. In the comic, the Shogun Warriors were created by a mysterious group called the Followers of the Light. Human operators were chosen from all around the world to operate the massive robots in order to battle evil.

    The series is firmly rooted in the Marvel Universe, as evidenced by their interactions with Doctor Demonicus in issues #12-14 and the Fantastic Four in the last two issues of the series. Issue #15 was a fill-in issue written by Steven Grant with art by Mike Vosburg. The series took a dramatic turn with issue #16, as the Shogun Warriors’ mentors were destroyed by the Primal One and his followers. This alien force decided that Earth’s technology had outpaced its morality, and so it was their duty to destroy the Shogun Warriors as well as other powerful humans, including Reed Richards and Tony Stark.

    Though he never appeared in the comic series, Red Ronin (a robot created for Marvel’s Godzilla comic) was mentioned occasionally and was frequently talked about in the letters pages. – Wiki

Pre-orders for these figures are available now.

    Everyone’s favorite bounty hunter goes medieval!

In addition to his EE-3 rifle portrayed as an flint-lock style blaster, this deluxe figure set features an extensive array of accessories that includes a characteristic backpack missile that can be removed/attached, and a moveable helmet mounted scope. In addition to a short ninja-style katana and sheath, numerous ninja-style blade accessories that are also included can be subtly attached to shin and forearm area mounting points.

The front robe pieces are removable, giving the option of displaying the Guard in a samurai armor fashion.

    From Entertainment Earth

    A Batman will always exist, as the Dark Knight is Timeless. Inspired by the fantastic sci-fi subgenre of steampunk comes this Batman Timeless Steampunk by Hitoshi Kondo Variant Play Arts Kai Action Figure. His Batsuit, with many design aspects inspired by turn of the century steam powered technology, offers a design that transcends time and space. Fine sculpting and paintwork, as well as careful consideration of the materials used, elevate the unique texture of steam-powered technology’s functional beauty. For example, multiple gears and cogs can be seen through a transparent piece in the chest armor, and burnished bronze metallic color is used throughout. This figure has a dignified, almost classical aura, emphasized by a five-layer structure of the cape which hearkens back to designs by da Vinci. The technical machinery would not be out of place in an 1890’s Batcave, and the gaslamp atmosphere evoked by the design is a perfect match for the Dark Knight. Batman measures approximately 10 1/2-inches tall x 10 1/4-inches wide x 8-inches long, includes display stand, and interchangeable hand parts.

  • DYNAMITE ANNOUNCES THIRD WOMEN OF DYNAMITE STATUE BASED ON FRANK CHO’S JUNGLE GIRL

    Posted:2015-07-08 06:33:18 UTC-07:00

    From Dynamite Entertainment

    Dynamite Entertainment is proud to expand its merchandising program with the Jungle Girl Statue, the third in its line of porcelain Women of Dynamite statues. Produced as part of their announced creative partnership with merchandise development company The Brewing Factory, the statue is slated for release in late October and features Jana, the heroine of the Jungle Girl comic book series by industry sensation Frank Cho (Savage Wolverine, Mighty Avengers, Liberty Meadows).

    Based on the Cho’s distinctive art and sculpted by the ever-talented Jason Smith, the blonde warrior stands atop the skeletal remains of a triceratops. Hand-painted on cold-cast porcelain, the Jungle Girl statue stands approximately 12″ in height with a 6″ base, with each individually numbered as part of a Limited Edition run. This Women of Dynamite statue comes packaged in a four-color box with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

    Georg Brewer, founder of The Brewing Company, says, “I couldn’t have been more excited when I heard that we were adding Cho’s Jungle Girl to the Women of Dynamite line. She is a great character and visually very different in tone and physicality to our previous statues. Jason did fantastic work translating Frank’s style in 3D. It’s one of my favorites in the line.”

    Dynamite Entertainment first announced the Women of Dynamite line of statues in February 2015. The first release in the line features Vampirella, the iconic comic book heroine and horror hostess whose likeness in porcelain is based on art from superstar illustrator J. Scott Campbell (Danger Girl, Gen13). Purgatori, the Egyptian vampire goddess popularized in Chaos! Comics titles, is the second Women of Dynamite statue, based on art from the legendary Michael Turner (Witchblade, Fathom). Each of these three statues has been sculpted by Jason Smith.

    The Women of Dynamite: Jungle Girl Statue will be solicited in an upcoming edition of Diamond Comic Distributors’ Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve the statue with their local comic book retailers. The Women of Dynamite: Jungle Girl Statue will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital. Fans and retailers are encouraged to follow Dynamite Entertainment’s official social media channels for the latest updates regarding project development and release dates.

    Posted:2015-06-17 07:59:37 UTC-07:00

    From Diamond Select

    In the long history of the Marvel Minimates line, there have been waves dedicated to both Marvel comics and Marvel movies, but never the world of Marvel animation. Now, Diamond Select Toys is launching an all-new series of Marvel Minimates, exclusively at Walgreen’s, and it’s all about the Marvel Animated Universe!

    Starting September 4, Marvel Minimates Animated Series 1 will be available at Walgreen’s stores nationwide, and will feature Diamond Select’s first cartoon-based Marvel Minimates. The first Minimates ever to be offered at the Walgreen’s chain of stores, this new line will include characters from Avengers Assemble, Ultimate Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy!

    Marvel Minimates Animated Series 1 will feature four different two-packs, each with show-specific packaging design:
    · From Avengers Assemble, that show’s two-pack will pair Hulk and Captain America, with alternate faces for each, plus a shield and an unmasked hairpiece for Steve Rogers.
    · From Guardians of the Galaxy, a two-pack of Star-Lord and Groot will come with a 1-inch micro-figure of Rocket Raccoon, as well as a blaster and a mask for Star-Lord.
    · From Ultimate Spider-Man; a two-pack matching up Spider-Man with Electro will come with an alternate Spidey head, a webline, lightning blasts and an energy base. Plus, Electro glows in the dark!
    · Also from Ultimate Spider-Man, a second two-pack will include Spider-Man 2099 and Agent Venom, with a webline.

    Minimates mini-figures stand approximately 2 inches tall, and each features 14 points of articulation. Body parts and accessories are fully interchangeable, so you can trade gear, helmets and even body parts between characters.

    Look for the assortment in stores starting on September 4. This is only the first series of the new Marvel Minimates Animated line, so expect to hear more about future assortments as the year progresses!

    Posted:2015-02-16 07:38:44 UTC-08:00

    LINE LAUNCHES WITH J. SCOTT CAMPBELL-INSPIRED WOMEN OF DYNAMITE COLLECTIBLES, DEBUTING WITH VAMPIRELLA STATUE

    From Dynamite Entertainment

    Dynamite Entertainment, a leading publisher of original and licensed comic books, graphic novels, and e-books, expands its extensive merchandising program with its proud announcement of a creative partnership with The Brewing Factory, the merchandise development company founded by Georg Brewer. The partnership will grow the Dynamite product line with new three-dimensional categories, most notably collectible statues and toys. The first projects will be a line of female character statues, Women of Dynamite, debuting with a Vampirella statue featuring the iconic comic book heroine and horror hostess (sculpted by Jason Smith and based on the artwork of J. Scott Campbell), and slated for release in June 2015.

    Georg Brewer is an award-winning creative and production expert, and former Vice President of Design & Product Development at DC Comics; well known for establishing DC Direct, the successful (and fan-favorite) collectibles business where he led creative development. In 2011, Brewer founded The Brewing Factory LLC, providing a wide range of creative, design, franchise development and brand management consulting services for new and established products and brands.

    “I’ve been really fortunate to work on some great projects these last few years, but my first love will always be comics,” says Georg Brewer. “Working with Nick and Joe at Dynamite, and their talented comics creators, has been a blast! It’s certainly been a fantastic way for me to get back to where it all started, and along with sculptor Jason Smith, we are creating an amazing line of statues.”

    “We are extremely fortunate to work with someone of Georg’s knowledge, skill, experience, and sterling reputation,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “His passion and expertise in the development and manufacturing of cool fan collectibles is second to none, and our being able to work with Georg is going to help bring fans additional great product lines featuring Dynamite’s extensive library of characters. The debut product line resulting from our creative partnership will be Women of Dynamite statues inspired by J. Scott Campbell artwork, and from there, we will continue to delve into our expansive library of intellectual properties.”

    The Brewing Factory has created many successful toy and collectible products, developed new IP concepts, and a line of electronics accessories. Aligned with key strategic partners, Brewer has also created deluxe Collector Editions items for the video game industry and premiums for Star Wars Celebration conventions. In 2012, Brewer expanded his focus to cover international markets, partnering with clients throughout Europe and Asia developing innovative and successful branded products and media content for both boys and girls distributed internationally. Entering into a long-term agreement with the Hong Kong based toy and entertainment company, Dracco Co. Ltd.; Brewer led the creative, brand management and digital groups supervising teams in three countries. Expanding further into media content, Brewer is now the Executive Creative Producer for the CGI TV series, currently in development, Funtasia based on the popular European toy brand Filly, and is working with renowned music producer KlausD developing original pop music for the series and individual release. Two new animated web series based on toy concepts he helped create, Zombie Zity and Kitty Club, are also in the works.

    Dynamite was founded in 2004 and is home to several best-selling comic book titles and properties, including The Boys, The Shadow, Vampirella, Warlord of Mars, Bionic Man, A Game of Thrones, and more. Dynamite owns and controls an extensive library with over 3,000 characters (which includes the Harris Comics and Chaos Comics properties), such as Vampirella, Evil Ernie, Chastity, Purgatori, and Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt. In addition to their critically-acclaimed titles and bestselling comics, Dynamite works with some of the most high profile creators in comics and entertainment. Dynamite is consistently ranked in the upper tiers of comic book publishers and several of their titles have debuted in the Top Ten lists produced by Diamond Comics Distributors. The company has also been nominated for and won several industry awards, including the prestigious Gem, Harvey, and Eisner Awards.
