Jakks Pacific S.L.U.G. Zombies Series 1 12-Pack Figure Review

S.L.U.G. Zombies are a cool new series of mini figures from Jakks Pacific. I first started seeing reports of people finding these at Toys R Us stores, and immediately began the search locally. Unfortunately, my local Toys R Us still hasn’t begun carrying them for some reason.

Luckily Wheelor from the He-Man.org forums was nice enough to pick up this 12-pack so I could check them out! Thanks bud!

So click on through to check out the 12-Pack of the new S.L.U.G. Zombies mini figures!

The Video Game Years: 1977

RetrowareTV.com is the first website that I produced videos for exclusively, as they were huge supporters of my video game-themed action figure series From Pixels to Plastic. I’ve become great friends with the folks over there over the past 4 years, and was thrilled when they asked me to be part of their new project: The Video Game Years.

“The Video Game Years are here! The exclusive RetrowareTV.com show that examines the history, culture, and the oddities of video game history will have you learning, laughing, and scratching your head as we examine all that transpired in our favorite hobby’s past.”

MOTU Classics Stinkor: Reversed Forearms?

Since the Stinkor reviews have hit the net this past week, many fans have started to notice something a little “off” about him. While Stinkor has newly sculpted forearms combining the furry sculpt with the Skeletor “fins,” the fins do seem to be reversed.

On Skeletor, Mer-Man, and other figures who have the finned forearms, the fins always pointed more outwards. Stinkor’s point more inward. Because of this, fans were starting to wonder if this was another incident of Mattel accidentally swapping parts at the factory, similar to what we saw with the shoulders on Roboto and King Hsss.

While many fans have agreed that it doesn’t seem to be as noticeable on Stinkor, it was still becoming a question that was lingering. So I went straight to the source to see if I could figure out if the forearms are reversed or not. I asked Scott “Toyguru” Neitlich for a comment.

From Scott: “I checked with design and it actually was not a mistake but a deliberate way to differentiate Stinkor due to the heavy use of shared parts. Design discussed as a team and found that you could swap the gloves to create a slightly different look. They wanted to give Stinkor something extra since he is basically Mer-Man’s head on Beastman’s body and Mekaneck’s armor (even though we haven’t done Mek yet but you know what I mean!~). Much like painting Sorceress’ wings blue this was one way of making the toy pop a bit and be different on shelf. For reference, we also did this on BG Evil Lynn to much success!”

So there you go. Official word from Mattel is that they are reversed, but it was done intentionally by design.

Joe Amaro’s Mystic Hammer Fan Project

My very talented friend Joe Amaro has sent along some work in progress shots of his upcoming fan project that he is calling the Mystic Hammer!

From Joe: “It’s coming out great, a little more cleaning then it’s time to cast and paint. The size is almost 5″ tall…it’s massive…perfect for 12” figures!

Once I’m finished cleaning I’ll post pictures of the hammer with some figures to show the size and scale. You can see in the images below that the top part will be hollow. This is so that it’s not too heavy which will allow for some awesome posing.

I’m thinking it should be ready for sale in the coming weeks. The price will $15.00 plus shipping.  There will be a very limited quantity made as this is not mass produced.”

I am a huge fan of Joe’s work, and personally I’m very excited for this! I’ll definitely be sure to keep you all posted as updates come in. But if you guys want to check out Joe’s work for yourself (as you should!), you can follow him at his blog.
