Finally my first piece of merch from this years San Diego Comic Con arrived; Podcast Pal Kevin Smith. (I still don’t know why they put a Superman spit-curl on every Kevin Smith figure they produce?).
(Books for scale)
At last someone has posted an image of the #Tuskday promo minimate – thank you tkurps
The minimate appears to follow a lot of the promotional ones – a basic, blank color with a logo on the chest. The logo is based on this promotional poster:
[Update 1] And as if by magic – Jay & Silent Bob’s Secret Stash are offering a few (for $9.99 each) on their ebay store!
[Update 2] Eleven hours later. All gone.
[Update 3] Twenty-four hours later. Five more available (with five dollar price hike!)
[Update 4] Thirty-six hours later. Five more made available and at time of writing only 1 left (with ten dollar price hike!)
Series 2 is go!
A Diamond Select Toys release! It’s an all-new assortment of 7-inch action figures from the popular Kevin Smith movie, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back! Comedy duo Jay and Silent Bob dress up like their alter egos, Bluntman and Chronic, and face off against the villainous Cock-Knocker! Each figure comes with an energy-sword weapon and part of the Bluntcave set – collect all three to re-create the famous climactic scene of the movie! Each figure comes packaged in a display-ready Select blister card, with spine artwork for shelf reference.
Diamond Select Toys kick off their Select Action Figure line with Series 1 featuring our heroes Jay and Silent Bob!
It’s been 20 years since we met Jay & Silent Bob in Clerks, and DST is celebrating the less-than-dynamic duo’s anniversary with their most realistic action figures ever!
Based on their appearances in Jay & Silent Bob Strikes Back, these 7-inch scale figures include multiple interchangeable parts, multiple points of articulation, and connecting display bases depicting the interior and exterior of RST Video. Packaged in Select-style display packaging, with spine artwork. Sculpted by Patrick Piggott!
Mr. Smith tweeted way back in 2009:
Ta-da! Or rather, Ta-Ta’s! Emma InAction Figure from CLERKS II line. Not out yet, but soon. See more here: http://tinyurl.com/o7q546
Unfortunately the tinyurl is broken (it pointed to http://www.jayandsilentbob.com/mostpopular.html which now gives a 404 error) but it is confirmation that Mrs. Smith’s character was taken to the prototype stage.
The Series 6 – Clerks II line-up!
Mr. Smith has commented that if Clerks III goes ahead – which is now extremely likely – the sixth series of InAction Figures would be released!
Please Help! Kevin Smith spoke of giving Zak Knutson the Sexy Stud prototype… which podcast/smodcast episode was it?
Huge excitement yesterday as awesome artist Christopher Uminga posted this commission piece on facebook:
The coolest part? ITS MINE!!! I am the commissioner! Will post pics when it arrives…!
In an awesome marketing move Nerd Block managed to get Mr Smith to curate this months classic loot box!
The two items of interest (relating to KS) where pretty great – a nice sticker sheet:
And a Jay&SilentBob-as-Batman&Robin The Undynamic Duo tee-shirt…
Full unboxing review (and more images) at imonthlysubscribe.blogspot.co.uk
You can pick up these items on ebay (as of January 2015 anyway)
[ One thing I really like about Nerd Block – it ships with a tee-shirt every month – which makes the price tag seem very affordable. ]
