You see that lovely spread up there? I wish I could say that this was all a recent haul of mine, but unfortunately, it's a collection of stuff that I need to sell. In case anyone was wondering why I've been absent from my writing duties on the site for the past few months, you could say that this wartime, economic downturn has really, REALLY hurt my pocketbook. Add onto that the fact that I just realized about a week or so ago that A) PAX was coming up real soon and B) I was supposed to go, and you see the dilemma I'm currently facing.
So everything you see up there is stuff I hope to sell. I figured I'd bring this to you guys, as if I'm gonna part with a huge majority of my collection (stuff that I, quite honestly, don't want to give up, but don't really have a choice), I may as well make sure I sell them to people who are gonna love them as much as I did. So without further ado, onto the sale-a-thon!
Also, I apologize for the unprofessional shots, they were taken in haste, as I'd like to move these as soon as possible so that I can get my financial situation in order quickly.
Various Revoltech figures
The figures that I have of the Revoltechs are as follows: Devil May Cry 3 Dante: $10 Brocken: SOLD Gurren Lagann Lazengann: $15 Gurren Lagann: SOLD Neon Genesis Evangelion 1997 movie ver: $15
Final Fantasy 3 Trading Arts 5 character set
Ginsburg Totem Doppelganger by Kid Robot
I bought these on a lark during an art show. I really liked the design of them, and had planned on customizing them into Pac Man ghosts, but never gotten around to it. Set of three, and they're glow in the dark, $15.
Castle Crashers Full Knight set
I got them at SDCC last year, and as much as I love them, I have to let them go. They never were played with (and trust me, I wanted to) and come just as they did when I originall purchased them, minus the annoying styrofoam peanuts. Blue, Orange and Red Knight are sold. Green Knight, $20
Full size replica Darth Vader helmet with attachable breathing voice box
SOLD! THAT WAS FAST WOO!
And now, the part of this post that I deeply, DEEPLY, regret having to come to.
Kid Robot Gorillaz White Version, complete set
You know me, and you know these things are my pride and joy, but I have to part with them. The figures have been removed from the boxes only a handful of times, and were not left out of the boxes for very long. Figures and boxes are in excellent condition, and are very hard to find now, and full sets sell for upwards of $250 bucks. $30 apiece, or $100 for the entire set.
Kid Robot Gorillaz Two-tone version, complete set
Same thing as the white version above, the figures have been removed very few times, and are in excellent shape. Original boxes are in good shape, aside from a few slight creases in areas (the packaging isn't a normal box, but more of a flimsy plastic box, and most of the creases were there when I received them directly from Kid Robot). These are as rare as the original Black versions of the figures, and sell for upwards of $350-400. $50 apiece, or $160 for the entire set.
If you're interested at all in any of these, shoot me an email (bryan AT tomopop DOT com). I am willing to negotiate on the prices within reason. Hopefully you guys are in need of anything I've got posted here. Thanks everyone!
I got home from a weekend road trip this afternoon to find a package on my doorstep. The package came from the one and only Pheonix-Blood, an incredibly amazing girl and one of my best friends I've ever had. I rip the package open and found yet another amazing figure to add to my collection.
I had been eyeing this figure for quite a time, but never expected to get this as a Christmas gift (due to lame UK shipping errors, I didn't receive her until today).
I absolutely love this figure. Now I have two of my two favorite fighting game females (I bought a Chun-li at Comic Con), all I need now is to get a Mai figure from King of Fighters (and trust me, after getting this Kasumi I NEED more barely-clothed ladies for my room), and I'll be all set.
I can't wait to get outside and take some better pictures of her, and dat ass.
Do you see that? DO YOU? I have been seaching for over 5 years to find a good Lupin the Third figure. For those who don't know, Lupin the Third is my flat out, hands down all time favorite anime of all time. I've never been able to find a good figure of the crafty thief, but thankfully my quest is finally over.
While perusing through some random booths on Saturday, I was stopped in front of a small booth for an upstart Japanese toy reseller by the name of Muteki Sales. Had I not had some disgusting Miss Piggy cosplayer blocking my way I probably would have never seen him, but thankfully her slow speed and her attention being diverted by god knows what caused me to look around and see, hidden among some Kamen Rider figures, the familiar look of a yellow tie and green jacket.
Sure enough, this seemingly random booth had the one prize I had been searching for, and it was on the (fairly) cheap too, cheap enough that I could afford not only Lupin, but his on-again/off-again love Fujiko Mine in a super sexy solid purple one piece. (I'll be getting photos of her later, I swear)
This is, by far, my most cherished figure I have ever purchased, even moreso then my Gorillaz figures. He's also super fun to take pictures of. I can't wait to have the time to take this guy to some spots around town and take some pictures. In the meantime, check out the ones I've taken around my apartment.
This is what comes up when I google image search for TOYS and OMG. I thought it was good enough.
I'm back everyone! Didja miss me? Anyone? Bueller?
I've been computerless for the last month, but now I'm back in my Tomopop saddle and getting ready to make my trek to the even colder north of New York for this year's New York Comic Con! Topher, Phist, and myself will be reporting from deep within the hallowed and, at times, smelly halls of the convention center, but we would also love to say hey to some of our fans and friends!
If you plan on heading out to Comic Con this weekend, be sure to let me know in the comments below, or email me (bryan.coffee at gmail dot com) so we can make arrangements to say howdy!
With Comic Con less than two weeks away, I just wanted to find out which of you wonderful people will be out there? Colette and myself will be on hand all week to cover the event, but make no mistake, if you're going, we want you to hang out with us! Let me know in the comments if you are, and we'll definitely have to plan some partying!
So earlier today when we got the tip for the Call of Duty figures, the first thing I noticed was that the figure for the British SpecOps soldier looks a lot like Aaron Eckhart, star of films such as Thank You for Smoking and playing Harvey Dent in the upcoming Dark Knight.
This got me to thinking, there should be an entire line of figures created starring Aaron Eckhart. The series can be called Aaron Eckhart in awkward situations he need not be in. Currently, that's just the working title, but I'll roll with it.
Each figure will come with a background setting for you to place your Aaron Eckhart in. Some of the examples I've come up with so far are (keep in mind that A) these are early production ideas and B) I suck at photoshoopin):
Aaron Eckhart in Space
Aaron Eckhart in Your Stomach
And of course,
Aaron Eckhart helping Ricki Lake giving birth
Stupid? Incredibly. Awesome? You bet your ass. I'm already in talks with McFarlane toys to get this line in production (they'll produce anything with mainstream appeal).
