Holy Thundera! There has been more Thundercats news than you can shake a stick at this year! The announcement of the New Series on Cartoon Network this fall, new staues, new toys, & now a re-issue of the classic figures. These are re-worked, but are very close to the originals. They are 8 inches tall with 18 points of articulation. The originals had around 5. Not only can you get Lion-O & Tygra, but you can also get a retooled Sword of Omens from the new series! It has a 17" plastic blade & extends to 25". It also has phrases & sounds from the new series.
There is also a 4 inch wave of new figures. These look sharp! Thundercats figures come with their own environment so you can recreate scenes from the TV show or make up new ones!
Check out all the awesome Thundercats toys available now for pre-order from Entertainment Earth
The most amazing collectible from Thundercats this month though, goes to, without a doubt, Sideshow Collectibles with their 26" High, 15.00 lbs, Mixed Media Statue that not only has the best sculpt I have ever seen on a Mumm-Ra collectible, but also, get this, LIGHTS UP! You read it right! The thing lights up. Light-up features include Sword of Plundarr, eyes, and chest symbol. How freakin' sweet is that!? Now, the bad part is the price. $374.99. OUCH! Luckily they have a flex-pay plan so you can get it for payments of $84.38 a month. Not too bad. It's definitely worth it!

More work done on the painting. She's almost done. I am nervous & excited. Toward the end of a painting is very similar to reaching the ending of a story you are writing. You have fewer choices in direction & every stroke/word effects the whole thing. You really have to be aware of the effects to the whole. Basically, you don't want to mess it up with one bad choice. So far, I am very happy with my choices. It is indeed one of my favorite things I have ever worked on.

Very sad, sad news Doctor Who fans. Our beloved Sarah Jane has passed away. She was 63. Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane was always one of my favorite companions on Doctor Who & the one I remembered the best from when I was a kid. She was witty, charming, looked great in a pair of knee high boots & will be missed by all who had the joy of watching her play Sarah Jane. Positivity & love to those who knew her personally.

You have probably seen Luis Royo's art on book covers, calendars, or on magazine covers. His style is haunting and sexy. I love his style & the way his figures seem to float or have a real lightness to them. Now Yamato USA is producing PVC 1/6 scale (approx. 13") mini statues of some of his sexiest ladies. These figures have incredible detail in the way of the paint job. The detail is amazing. The outfits are molded of plastics that appear very cloth-like & can be translucent enough to see tattoos hidden underneath. The one shown here is called Ritual & will be available from Entertainment Earth October 2011. You can pre-order it now. They have it listed for $109.99, which is $10.00 cheaper than the Yamato site has it.
Make sure you check out many of the other figures inspired by Royo's art work on both the Entertainment Earth site & the Yamato USA site as well as the artist's website.
Hellboy fans, Mike Mignola Fans, & B.P.R.D. fans & Zippo collectors, check this out! It's a chrome "Black Ice" Zippo brand lighter with the B.P.R.D. symbol on the side. Those of us that don't have Liz Sherman as a friend or a teammate can rely on this Zippo brand lighter to start a fire any place any time! Entertainment Earth has them for $29.99.
