So I have backed another awsome looking kickstarter!
Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. is an awesome looking line of articulated action figures by Boss Fights Studio.
I was instantly drawn to how detailed and realistic the Medusa armor was (Plus, an articulated gorgon figure?? Yes please!)
Upon further checking out their product, I am super impressed by how ludicrously well articulated these things are. I could use the darn things for anatomy study! They are also designed to be easily modified and customized, if thats your thang. They can be taken apart and put back together for ease of repainting and modding. Cool beans!
I think these look super sweet, and I totally want all three of the Gorgon Sisters.
Check out their Kickstarter and show them some love!
Today I discovered Minimates and here I go. Like I really needed another thing to collect. (Hint: I don’t.)
I had never heard of Minimates before, but I seriously wish I had because they have a whole TON of awesome figures. I think what I really love the most about these figures is how much they remind me of Lego. Who didn’t love lego?! Ill be trying to track down a Loki Minimate later and maybe (just maybe) Ill keep this particular collection to villains to give myself a focus. But lets not get ahead of myself here! The first Minimates I bought are some of their new Star Trek figures. And wouldn’t you know it, there is a set (Captain Kirk and Khan) for my favourite episode of Star Trek ever, Space Seed.
Here is Captain Kirk facing off against the legendary film icon Khan. Now what is interesting here is that these are not Wrath of Khan figures, of which there are many, but these are Space Seed figures, of which there are less. Space Seed is my favourite episode because Khan is such a brilliant villain and its intriguing to me how he, a mere human, (genetically superior, but human nonetheless) manages to give Kirk more of a run for his money in this episode then a lot of the super powered cosmic entities he comes across over the course of TOS.
The two figures look really nice, too. They are instantly recognisable as their characters, while also rocking the awesome Lego-esque aesthetic style.
Theres a great attention to detail here, down to their outfits being completely episode accurate. They also come with three accessories: Two phasers and a communicator, which snap into their little hands perfectly. Kirks phaser can also clip onto his belt! Seriously cool toys. The only problem I can see here is that while Kirks head moves very freely, Khans is more difficult, and attempting to move his head generally just results to getting his hair askew.
Small grievances, all in all these are great little figures and I love them! Will definitely be getting more Minimates in the future! (sigh)
Today I picked up the Funko Pop! figure of Daenerys.
Its the first Funko Pop! figure Iv ever bought. Iv never really been the hugest fan of the Funko Pop! line, but I am a huge fan of Danny and this is (so far) the only official Danny figure.
Shes one in a series of Game of Thrones figures. Shes really cute, and has great molded hair. She is sporting her Dothraki outfit from the first season and is shown with one of her dragons.
I sort of wish that they hadn’t included a dragon because she has THREE dragons, and it seems to me that either all three or none at all should be included in a figure. Perhaps this is her favourite dragon. (Shhhhh don’t tell the other two)
I was pretty excited to get this figure nonetheless. I love Daenerys and wish there was more merchandise around for her! I do wish there was an actual DOLL of her as much as I like this chibi version of her. But this is great for now! The other Funko Pop! figure I really want is the Marvel Loki.
