I really like the idea of these, I’m not sure how many I can afford to buy (both cash and space are a rare commodity) but as Benjamin Holcomb recently mentioned, the grand size of these does make you feel like a kid again.
Mego Museum showcased the upcoming Kresge style Superheroes and while they’re great and all, I can’t ignore the fact that Doctor Thaddeus Bodog Sivana is getting a freaking Mego style figure this year!
Bam! without warning this week Figures Toy Company announced Dukes of Hazzard wave 2 by showing off the figures and taking pre-orders which had a lot of fans really excited. I’m by no means a Dukes fan but I can understand how cool it is to get the anicliary characters.
This past weekend saw the launch of the 8″ Odeon Toys Captain Canuck action figure in comic shops across Canada and thanks to our spies we captured a lot of it. Above is current Canuck artist Kalman and Silver Snail owner George setting at the downtown Toronto location for a signing event.
At Big B Comics in Hamilton, Captain Canuck creator Richard Comely signed figures for anxious fans. Any one who’s ever met Richard can tell you he’s an extremely genuine person.
This is Strange Adventures in Halifax, although you can buy the Captain at any of their 3 locations in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
Big B in Niagara Falls had a beautiful display of figures right smack in the center of the store. Visiting there is a must if you’re visiting at the Falls, it’s not far from Clifton Hill. Where to buy Captain Canuck?
Odeon toys just put this carded image of Captain Canuck on their front page, stating that Captain Canuck will soon be available for sale on their web store. Seems the figure is going to launch with an event of some kind.
The Kubby Awards, the annual MegoMuseum poll that shines the light on the brightest and the best in ReMego is coming to a close today.
Seriously, this may be the toughest year yet with all the players and licenses in the pool. So cast your vote and be heard, from what I understand from early results, people like Batman. Who’da thunk it?
I’m back and well, EE is having another sale. It’s not the big ReMego blow out that the last one was but there are some good deals on Battlestar Galactica, Venture Brothers and a nice price break on those Big Bang Theory figures.
