MyLittleCthulhu00

If you’re the sort of person who likes to say “totes adorbs” about Lovecraftian horrors, I have some fodder for you. This is the black variant edition of the My Little Cthulhu toy, complete with two miniature pull-apart victims. The standard version that came out before this one comes in the standard eldrich green, and yes, I do own that one as well. These My Little Cthulhus are designed by John Kovalic, the guy behind the Dork Tower comics and other assorted and awesome projects.

Cylon00

These are photos I took a few years ago of the Cylon Centurion bust from Battlestar Galactica. I really like this bust a lot, even if the pose is kind of goofy and makes the Centurion look like he’s bowing at cotillion. I’m happy with the way the pictures turned out, even if I did forget to dust the collectible before setting it up to be shot.

The Steam Summer Sale has come and gone, and it cut a bloody swathe through many a wallet. I managed not to spend much money at all but ended up with quite a few new games by the end, and not just on Steam. Just before and during the sale, I had some coupons and free game codes from another gaming site called Arm Chair Empire and those paired well with some of the daily and flash deals that were running during the sale. I ended up with a bunch of loot for very little money, and I decided to compile a list of all the new gaming acquisitions here. The purpose of this post is to give myself a reference so that I won’t forget and actually will play all of the stuff I got, but I’m also interested in getting comments from my friends to see what games you all ended up with and what you think about them. Here’s my rundown, on Steam and off:

Cheetah00

This Cheetah bust is from the second series of Women of the DC Universe, designed by Terry Dodson. She was limited to 3500 pieces and is the only Cheetah collectible they’ve released in this line so far.

Deadshot00

Today’s Project 365 collectible is the Deadshot miniature from Eaglemoss’s DC Superhero Figurine Collection. I took these photos a while back but hadn’t posted them here yet. I didn’t have time to take new pictures of a collectible today, so these became an easy swap-in feature.

BlackQueen00

Earlier in this ongoing Project 365 I posted photos of Sideshow Collectibles’ Jean Grey as the Black Queen statue, designed by Adam Hughes. That’s a fantastic collectible, but it’s not the only representation of the character that has had a high-end statue produced. Prior to the Sideshow piece, Bowen Designs put out this Jean Grey in their standard Marvel statue scale. She includes a removable cape so that you can display her with or without it, and the whip is made from some flexible material that is affixed to the base to keep everything posed correctly.

Flash00

Today’s collectible is another first-string member of the Justice League, the Flash. DC Direct released this bust prior to the New 52 reboot, and surprisingly it’s the only Flash bust they’ve released in the series to date. He has a cool dynamic look with clear effects on the base to make it look like he’s in the midst of speeding away.

Joker00

I posted one of the Joker busts DC Direct made for the Villains of the DC Universe series previously, and here’s the other one. Both are pretty wicked, but this one is especially insane. His base is a jack-in-the-box, similar to but more elaborate than the one for the Harley Quinn bust.

CaptainMarvel00

Captain Marvel (often erroneously called “Shazam”) hasn’t always been one of DC’s top tier, A-list superheroes, but I’ve always liked him a lot. I think a lot of that liking comes from his costume, which I think is one of the overall best superhero costume designs in comics. The colors are bright and heroic, and the gold lightning bolt is suitably iconic. I also really like the way his costume coordinates with other heroes and villains in his corner of the DC Universe (Black Adam, Mary Marvel, etc). In the New 52 relaunch, DC tweaked the costume a bit, but it still has the essential components I’ve always liked. This bust was the first one they made, back when they were producing under the name DC Direct.

MrSinister00

Today I’m posting photos of another miniature from Eaglemoss’s Classic Marvel Figurine Collection, Mr. Sinister. He just might be the most obviously named character in comics. And yet, somehow, the good guys keep meeting up with him and not immediately knowing that he’s out to ruin their day. Look at his name, X-Men. Mr. Sinister. “Sinister” is a word in English that we use to describe evil things. And, apparently, we also use it to describe the left side of things. I didn’t know that until I Googled just now. So I guess they could just think he’s left handed or something? But he’s not. He’s evil. Big twist!
