Pod Stallions Shorts: Dear Santa


We here at Pod Stallions H.Q. haven’t fully given up on the notion of Santa, or some similarly benevolent but less popular entity, taking requests for the Big Day. So in ultra-modern fashion, we’re broadcasting our Wish Lists rather than risking the letters getting lost in the holiday shuffle. Who knows, maybe someone’s listening and will bring joy come X Mas morning. Regardless, we think you’ll appreciate our efforts, so give listen to our new mini PS ep!

Tura Satana Action Figure Reveal from PlaidStallions

 

Tura Santana action figure

Truly honoured to unveil the packaging art for the official Tura Satana action figure coming soon from Odeon and White Elephant Toyz.

The artwork is by the incredible Joseph Michael Linsner, and he blew us away with it, exceeding our expectations.

The package is truly a labour of love and my favourite bit of layout work ever. The vision was to give Tura a truly vintage package and also add a much-needed female member to a Particular Team of Crime Killers.

As added bonus, we’ve got a special look at the final paint master for the figure, which is now in production.

Legendary actress Tura Satana finally gets her own action figure!

Faster Action Figure! Kill! Kill!

Legendary actress Tura Satana finally gets her own action figure!

LOS ANGELES, CA – “One of Tura’s wishes was for someone to create an action figure of her in full Varlamode,” says Siouxzan Perry, CEO of Tura Satana Inc. in announcing White Elephant Toyz and PlaidStallions.com will produce the first officially licensed Tura Satana action figure. In full Varla mode!

“Satana, star of cult films Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and Astro Zombies is famous for being one of the first to use her real-life martial arts skills on-screen, firmly cementing her status as one of cinema’s all-time great action star pioneers.

Tura is also the subject of the forthcoming documentary TURA!, which chronicles her wild on and offscreen life.”

The first release will be based on Satana’s starring role as Varla in the iconic film, “Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!” The figure will be fully articulated 8” in a retro cloth outfit complete with a vintage style (and environmentally friendly) box. Variants of this figure and other scales are also planned for 2023.

The official Tura Satana action figure will be available in 2022 at Plaidstallions.com and Whiteelephanttoyz.com websites
