1981 Kenner Pre-Toy Fair Catalog and Star Wars Carrying Cases

Battlegrip.com - 2 hours 39 min ago
I’ve been home alone for the weekend and my energy has gone to snapping photos and working on a book about action figure carrying cases. Vinyl, hard plastic, wearable, vehicles, playsets, and more have landed in front of me over the last few days, and as I work I scrounge through the catalogs and marketing materials I’ve collected for any...

Kickstarter – Hexer Dusk Graphic Novel by Jan Duursema and John Ostrander

Battlegrip.com - 3 hours 28 min ago
Jan Duursema and John Ostrander are running a Kickstarter project for a new graphic novel, Hexer Dusk, and between their reputations/experience and the sample pages alone I jumped in without reading a word of the project’s description. Yeah, I know, I know, I should totally read these things, but can you really fault me for trusting that these two are... Read more →

“A Galaxy of Star Wars Treasures!”

Battlegrip.com - 6 hours 14 min ago
Marvel’s The Human Fly comic from 1977 proudly proclaims “The Wildest Super-Hero Ever–Because He’s Real!” across the cover when what it should yell out is “awesome Star Wars ad, kids!” Well, that probably wouldn’t have made sense back when the comic was new, but today I am willing to bet that most of us who encounter this comic in the...

1979 Jawa Artwork by Mark Corcoran

Battlegrip.com - 7 hours 15 min ago
The 1979 Star Wars kids’ illustrated book, The Mystery of the Rebellious Robot* has some pretty rough and great artwork, and flipping through the book again this two-page spread showing Jawas sabotaging machinery jumped out. This is the best art in the book! I know this isn’t the sort of slick, polished artwork we see in Star Wars books these... Read more →

1977 and “The Spider-Man Web-Maker is Here!”

Battlegrip.com - 28 May, 2016 - 15:30
From Marvel Comics in late 1977 comes this full-page ad from Heroes World for a Conan map, superhero posters, and the spectacular Spider-Man Web-Maker that I’m betting parents hated. I can remember wanting Spider-Man “web fluid” as a kid, but now I can’t track down the exact commercial that I can remember watching when I was five or six. Anyone... Read more →

Uglydoll x Thunderbirds in Japan

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 28 May, 2016 - 08:59
Uglydoll x Thunderbirds plush has been spotted in Tokyo! Specifically at the Tokyo Game Center, via the "claw crane Machine" (above image via @saitomotoko - who also first shared with folks the Uglydoll x Sanrio plush), with David Horvath adding; "Ultraman not far behind." And while I'm not a huge TBird-fan to fawn over the plush brand collabo (first announced in 2015), I am much more keen for

The Vintage Studio Offers Kenner-Style Action Figures on Facebook

Battlegrip.com - 28 May, 2016 - 04:38
The Crazy Toys Stormtrooper, pack (mentioned here) isn’t the only modern day Kenner-like Stormtrooper pack in the world. This morning I ran across The Vintage Studio on Facebook and their Kenner-like Sandtrooper action figure. This is completely bootleg and not approved by anyone, and the design shows that someone behind the project is a fan of Kenner-style action figures from... Read more →

G.I. Joe Aircraft Carrier on Clearance in 1986

Battlegrip.com - 28 May, 2016 - 04:27
Hasbro’s G.I. Joe aircraft carrier playset of the eighties is one of those toys that I’ll never own. Even if I managed to find one at a price I could afford there would be a problem: Where do you even put this monster of a playset? Seriously, Hasbro, your marketing and design teams in the eighties sure knew how to... Read more →

Restore Created Paint Contest- “Pardalizard Fog”

Prometheum5's collected works - 27 May, 2016 - 09:00

PRS-Fog-14

Restore is having another painting contest, in collaboration with Pop Soda.  I had a great time in the previous contest with my third place entry Gikaku, False Oni.   Entries for this contest could use any of Restore’s toys, and I went with Fog because it was pretty much the only way I was going to be able to get one these days.  I love the detailed sculpt, so I looked at lots of real life pictures of chameleons for inspiration.  Turns out, chameleons are totally rad, so I had a lot to work with.  I took key colors from a couple that I liked and tweaked the layout to fit the humanoid shape, and fired up the airbrush.  The name “Pardalizard” comes from the species name of some particularly hot looking breeds.  The contest is open for a few more months, and then we’ll see how I do!

PRS-Fog-11

I took all the photos outside so I could show off my nature-inspired Fog in his home.  The photoshoot was a ton of fun and I am really happy with how the photos came out.  More after the break, and there are a lot of shots!
