Paul Kaiju's "King Carrion" work-in-progress sculpt… To be released in 2015!

If you don't want to know what the future holds for PaulKaiju's iconic "Boss Carrion" then do not — under any circumstance — read on…

This work-in-progress sculpt for a new evolution of the 8½-inch tall "Boss Carrion" figure — described as a "powered" version by Kaiju — is being titled "King Carrion" by us for now. Kaiju is "developing the design as if OG Boss was just [a] 'Larval'" stage, "staying very true to the OG design with surprises." With some amphibious aspects noted on the head, this battle-damaged rendition is expected to be released in 2015 as a soft Japanese vinyl (sofubi) figure. And we absolutely can't wait to see more reveals of what this creature looks like!

Super7 × Funko's 8-Bit Horror Series ReAction Figures for NYCC: Freddy Krueger & Jason Vorhees!

1989 was a good year for horror fans, as both Freddy Krueger and Jason Vorhees made their 8-bit Nintendo debuts in video games named after their famed franchises, A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th respectively. Then, last year, NECA surprised fans by doing 8-bit re-renditions of their 7-inch tall figures for both characters! And while those were great conceptually, this is what I wanted… sweet 3¾-inch tall action figure versions, just like would've come out in 1989 when the games did. Produced under the Super7 and Funko collaborative ReAction Figure line, these variants are part of the previously announced Horror Series and literally just recolor the figures to match their game appearances. Exclusive to this year's New York Comic Con, these will be available from Toy Tokyo's Booth with an anticipated price of $20 apiece.

Shez's complete characters from Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! as custom Mini Munnys & Bubs!

As you might recall from HERE and HERE, customizer Shez has an obvious soft spot for the classic 8-bit Nintendo game Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! Well Shez is certainly not alone in his love of that game, as one private collector commissioned that artist to recreate all 14 characters from the game in 4-inch tall Mini Munny and Bub form! Playing towards the classic 'blocky' look of the game, Shez keeps his linework thick but crisp and his colors to fairly solid blocks, which comes across cartoony but in a very intentional manner. Many with sculpted elements, this is a fantastic set that I'm sure one fan will treasure for their life. Shez is usually open to commissions, so you should contact him if you want something created that is along these lines.
