It is hard to argue that Bob Ross is a pop culture icon. In a perfect example of “you don’t know what you have until it’s gone”, Bob Ross has become more of a celebrity after his death then when he was alive. As a younger kid, I was introduced to The Joy of Painting on PBS at my grandparent’s house. It was him and Mark Kistler’s Secret City that helped me realize my love for art and drawing. His calm kind demeanor was like watching Mr. Rogers with a paint brush. Unfortunately, after battling Lymphoma Bob Ross passed away in 1995. However, in recent years, there as seemed to be a Bob Ross renaissance. His likeness has been popping up on everything from the obvious paint sets to the odd, but cool, Bob Ross Chia Pet. Even the ever popular Deadpool sometimes cosplays as him. NECA, as always, seemed to read fan’s minds and decided to add a Bob Ross figure to their 8-inch clothed line. After he was revealed, he quickly became the figure I never knew I needed. (more…)
I have been having killer luck lately when it comes to finding NECA goodness in the wild. On my weekly Target visit I found the new Predator wave and just one Ultimate Gremlin hiding behind some T2 figures. I grabbed the gremlin and will have to wait on the Predators, you can only afford so much.
As much as I would like more than one, at $27.99 that’s a tough sell. Especially if you plan on getting Stripe and the GameStop exclusive too. (more…)
Some new items have made there way to NECA’s eBay and Amazon Stores over the past week. The highly sought after Raincoat Coraline Doll is back in stock, as well as a few new Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street ultimates.
Don’t be this guy/gal, this is a toy collector PSA. I tweeted this the other day and still can’t get over it. I don’t understand why people pay this much for some thing that is going to be out in a few weeks and probably be readily available at most big boxes. We can expect more sellers to break the agreement and start listing their figures early. Don’t be tempted. (more…)
