Manny Pacquiao x Bloc28 x MINDstyle Mad Mickey Set

Posted in Sports, Toys with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 21, 2010 by prolifik1

Arguably the biggest name in boxing right now, Manny Pacquiao and his Team Pacquiao initiative are behind an exclusive team-up involving Disney’s Bloc28 program and toy brand MINDstyle. The result is the following Mad Mickey and Pacquiao figure which will first release exclusively at Comic Con. The toys come with a special box and collector’s card. The figures are each limited to 300 pieces with a retail price of $250 USD for each figure or $500 USD for the set. Available now at MINDstyle’s Booth #4437.

Arguably? Pacquiao IS the biggest name in boxing. It’s official! Floyd (G)ayweather is a PUSSY! Sorry, I just had to add that!

Dope figures if you’re a Disney or Manny fan, just a tad too pricey for me.

Two Internationally known iconic figures = Dope Status

Here’s a sneak preview of MINDstyle‘s Manny Pacquiao vinyl figure under their “POP Collection” series for their upcoming Summer 2010 release.

They pretty much nailed a good caricature version of the PAC MAN rockin the Philippines flag designed boxing trunks with “Pacquiao” across the belt line.

I’d definitely cop!

Medicom Toy is often highly associated and known for the production of the Kubricks and Bearbricks. Although they produce these limited edition toys, they also produce scaled figures as well known as RAH or Real Action Heroes. With this new collection, they introduced us with two of the famous beloved Star Wars characters, C-3PO and R2D2. Highly detailed along with light up features as shown in the video below.

Just like Hot Toys, they’re on point with these figures. Pretty dope!

GAIKING Teaser Trailer

Posted in Entertainment, Toys with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 27, 2010 by prolifik1

I’m a product of the 80’s, so I wasn’t around yet when these came out in the 70’s.  I do remember having these toys as a youngster.  I grew up around the time with having mostly Transformers, Voltron, and Go-Bots though; but had some of these toys passed on to me from other family.

It’s cool to see this brought to life onto the big screen. As much as I was entertained by the Transformers (Bay-Formers), this seems to be a whole lot better effects wise. Maybe Michael Bay can learn something when it comes to filming the 3rd sequel to TF?

Introducing the GAIKING Teaser which is slated for a 2012 release
