Lining the gates of the palace is the illustriousAside from the gold coloration, their are several obvious differences: no tongue on this version, the kanji atop the head has been morphed into a crystalline structure, the Swarovski crystals are purple instead of red, and the pattern on the flag is printed in purple instead of brown. Much like the originals, each of these hand-painted pieces will come signed by each artist and safely entombed in a laser engraved wooden crate. They will retail for $475 (plus shipping) each and be available for 24 hours starting on April 20th at 1PM EST exclusively at The Beast Brothers online store.

and crystals, and proudly displaying the royal flag.
He did a spot on job recreating the static look of Samara, no arguments there, but she fails to instill horror. This 4" Munny needed a bit of the unexpected, something being off-kilter. Perhaps if she had been sculpted to be in a slightly contorted state… nothing too obviously, but something that made the viewer feel a tad uneasy without realizing it. 'Tis a difficult thing to accomplish and I certainly applaud Fuller for trying. The Samara 4" Munny is available in Fuller's web shop for $125.

As we announced HERE, Jeff Lamm's Spikewad was released in five colorways: Absinthe (glow-in-the-dark), Bloo (blue and red), Black Hole (black and silver), Claw (light blue, green and white), and Satsuma (orange and green). Each figure is approximately 6" tall and uses the same "pop and play" mechanic as Lamm's M5 & Star-Gee, meaning that the head, torso and legs all separate and are interchangeable between the various figures. Each Spikewad costs £28 ($45) and is limited to an undisclosed amount; they all come polypagged with a header card by Lamm.
And as previously mentioned HERE, the Triclops Studio's Mega B.A.S.T.A.R.D. PeeNut (shown above) also dropped yesterday. Available in three colorways (classic M.U.S.C.L.E. pink, lagoon blue, and Clops purple), limited to 200 copies between all the colors, this almost 8" tall vinyl figure comes in a polybag with a specially designed header card. PeeNuts will run you £28 ($45) each and, if they do well, we can only hope that more Mega B.A.S.T.A.R.D.s are forthcoming!
Both figures in their various colors are currently available in the Unbox Industries web shop.
