Unpainted Skull Head resin bust from Huck Gee, which I speculate to be releasing this festive holidays, looking pretty darn decent, methinks! … Looking at Skull Heads always reminds me of an BLOG-interview I did with Huck back in 2007 haha … More product and availability details when I have them.
FYI: Huck actually posted the below pic on his Instagram back in October, asking folks if they were interested in a "bust".
Trailer for JUPITER ASCENDING = an upcoming film directed by Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski, starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, in what looks to be an exceptional sci-fi opera action piece in the vein of "Star Wars", pumped-up to the max with gorgeous visuals, that perhaps might facilitate an action figure line somewhen … which to me is a "sign" of a property, if it necessitates a toy-line, IMHO.
But then again, "Riddick" popped into mind, and instantaneously "Speed Racer", as well, so that's my theory shot down lol … or perhaps I should say, that if there is a toy-line launched for this, then perhaps they are gearing for it beyond the cinemas and into the pop culture subconsciousness, like even "The Matrix" was, don't you think? Regardless, looks an exciting time to be had (and I break for Mila Kunis anyday *man-blush*) ... and check out Channing's "Vulcan-ears", man lol
(placement for eventual screengrabs to come)SYNOPSIS: "In a universe where humans are near the bottom of the evolutionary ladder, a young destitute human woman is targeted for assassination by the Queen of the Universe because her very existence threatens to end the Queen's reign."
STORYLINE: "Jupiter Jones was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine, a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along - her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos." (IMDb)"Jupiter Ascending" premieres 25 July 2014 (USA)

While I’d like to have chain swords for my Gipsy Danger, I didn’t much care for the grittier “battle damaged” look of the new figure. So I’ll be ending my wave two reviews with Striker Eureka. Not only is he my favorite Jaeger so far, but he’s also a great example of how NECA has improved the overall design and execution of the overall line.
In the Pacific Rim universe, Striker Eureka is the most advanced Jaeger created. Not only is he more powerful and deadly, but he’s the fastest too. This is nicely expressed through his sports-car-with-jet-engines motif, making him look much more like a modern anime mech than his robo brethren.
Striker may be more sophisticated, but he’s also the shortest of the three Jaegers made so far. It’s not by much, but when you combine it with his bulky chest armor and shoulder pads then it gives him a very stocky build. He’s like a dense boxer or mixed martial artist, which also really suits the personality of his pilots.
Articulation on this little guy is pretty amazing, especially when compared to wave one’s Gipsy and Crimson. He’s got a ball jointed head, although it’s a bit limited by his high collar armor. The ankles are also ball joints, and the waist is a swivel. The elbows, wrists, and knees are all hinges, and the hips are swivel/hinges. His most impressive joints are easily the shoulders. They’re a hinge connected to the body with a swivel hinge, giving him a huge range of motion and reach. Continue to page 2…
