The Round-Up: Warlords and Warriors, Figma Samus Delayed, T-Shirts
Wednesday, June 20th, 2012 by Pixel Dan
Welcome to the weekly Round-Up, giving you some quick updates and things you should check out!
- The website for Warlords and Warriors just launched. If you are unfamiliar with that name, Warlords and Warriors is a new retro-styled 5.75″ fantasy figure line coming from the folks at ZoloWorld. Think classic MOTU, Remco, etc. I interviewed Mike Zolotorow last year at Power-Con when he was in the early stages of this line. It’s getting closer to launch, and registering at the site gives you first crack at pre-orders when the become available.
- I’ve been asked this a lot, so to make things clear: I have not received Snake Man-at-Arms or the Griffin from Mattel for review. Mattel notified me last week that they themselves had not received samples for these items yet, so they would be late in sending them. Of course, now the figures have gone on sale and many folks already have these items in hand. My subscription figures are set to be delivered on the 28th (ugh…Newgistics.) When they arrive, I will absolutely rip them open and review them.
- I received a notice this morning that the Figma Samus figure I currently have on pre-order has been delayed. The release date is now set for late July. So if any of you out there have this figure pre-ordered as well, be sure to adjust your budget accordingly.
- I have a T-Shirt coming! Yep, the first ever official Pixel Dan T-Shirt. Is that something you guys will actually care about? I guess we’ll find out! It will be sold through the He-Man.org T-Shirt store on Printfection. My good buddy Eamon O’Donoghue designed it. I hope to have it up for order before SDCC. I’d like to see some folks wearing my shirt at the Con, if possible.
That’s all for now! Stay tuned, because I have a TON of reviews on the way! I’m trying to crank out as many as I can before I leave for San Diego in two weeks, so be on the lookout for reviews of Trash Pack, Kotobukiya ArtFX, more Mattel SDCC exclusives, Hasbro Avengers, and more!
