BUZZARD GUTS CYBOT AVENGERS BOOTLEGS

img_7846

We recently received an e-mail detailing the latest bootleg fan art resin toy from buzzard guts and DAMarx toys. It is a Star Wars/Marvel mash-up that uses Kenners 1977 protocol droids as a base for popular Marvel characters. 3.75″ resin figures hand cast and hand painted by DAM and mounted on a sturdy 6″x9″ cardback with beautiful illustrations by Ryan Winn, one of the creators of Valiant comics. Each card features a homage to classic Marvel comic covers by Jack Kirby, Bob Layton and Todd McFarlane. There are 4 figures in the set. The Cybot Avengers features C3-PO as Iron Man and the Captain, while RA-7(death star droid) mutates into Hulk and Spidey. (Star Wars fans might reference Cybot Galactica, the company responsible for manufacturing these protocol droid models.) This 1st edition series is limited to 20 figures being 5 of each or 5 sets. Dropping exclusively HERE Friday February 24th at 7pm eastern standard. They are $40 each or $150 for the set. Save $10 when you buy the set.

FORCES OF DORKNESS “THE PENCIL FROM JOHN WICK 2” CUSTOM

john-wick-the-pencil-3-shot

“That fucking nobody is John Wick.” said Viggo Tarasov as he told the story about John killing 3 men in a bar with a pencil in John Wick and *spoiler alert*…in John Wick Chapter 2  you get to see him kill some bad guys with one. (Bad Guy is subjective in this case, who really is the bad guy you may ask yourself, me…I consider anyone trying to kill me the bad guy, and I bet John does too).

This is a tribute to an amazing action-movie franchise. It’s a real pencil, coated is resin for durability, and custom painted to look like it has entered someone’s skull and then been retracted. Each one is hand made so there is some variation between each so no two are alike.  Call it a toy, call it a collector’s item, call it a weapon, just don’t call John and expect him to say anything on the phone or to use more that 3 words as a response in a conversation.

Each one is a standard sized No. 2 pencil in a custom bloodied bag (note:  It’s paint and not actual blood because that would be gross and probably smell after a while) with a custom designed header card by The Forces of Dorkness.

$16.95 gets you one and being the nice guy he is Scott is also including shipping in the US.  The release is limited to 20 pieces, and to make one part of your collection all you have to do is go HERE.
