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…)
Living in a large city has a few benefits. It increases your odds for scoring Target exclusives like the NECA Thermal Vision Fugitive Predator. It didn’t take me long to find one on shelves, finding it at the third Target in my area. Once out of the box this figure is truly a gem. (more…)
Marvel and Hasbro officially revealed some new store exclusives for their upcoming Captain Marvel series. Target will get her Star Force variant of Captain Marvel, while Walmart will have the Binary version. (more…)
I finally found NECA’s Ultimate Fugitive Predator at Target right before heading to New York. With stuff still left to unpack and open from the move back from Seattle, I am just now getting around to taking him out of the box. I figured I better hurry with the newly revealed Emissary #1 shipping out next month. If you haven’t already, you can check him out here. I know many were expecting their next reveal to be the super predator, but this is cool none the less.
Back to the fugitive. After finally seeing him in the first trailer I couldn’t wait to see what NECA was going to bring to the table with their figure. One of the many licenses I’m glad to see them own is the Predator franchise. They do great figures at a great price and this one is no different. (more…)
Sorry for the lack of posts, we are currently in the process of moving back across the country. If you are not already aware, NECA products started making their way on to Target shelves this past weekend. To celebrate the occasion, Target and NECA are giving everyone a 20% off coupon for all NECA and Kidrobot items. The only catch is you have to use it in store. You can get your 20% off coupon here. Hurry, it expires 8/13. (more…)
