Mattel’s WWE Figures Showing Their Teeth…and Claws…And Other Monster Parts

Published

on

Mattel likes to keep us on our toes! Even though we attend Toy Fair every year, they still like to throw some surprises at us, often turning up in the toy aisles with no warning whatsoever. Such was the case with last year’s WWE Mutants line, which saw your favorite wrestlers transformed into crocodile men, scorpion creatures, and multi-armed freaks of nature.

This year we’ve got a similar monster theme going, with the horrific personalities utilized being from a more familiar stable.

This lineup includes:

  • Asuka as The Phantom
  • Braun Strowman as Frankenstein
  • Chris Jericho as The Mummy
  • Jake “The Snake” Roberts as The Creature
  • Roman Reigns as The Werewolf
  • Undertaker as The Vampire

Execution is a mixed bag here. Since these are lower priced figures, it’s understandable if some paint and sculpting details are lost in production; and for my taste, the “mishaps” in this line lead more to hilarity than disdain, making me want to buy them all the more.

LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MASK FACE FOR ASUKA!!!

It’s like those pictures you see of someone trying to replicate a famous baker’s pop culture cake and their attempt comes out resembling a melty, deformed monstrosity. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TIMMY!! No…don’t cry…aw damnit, Timmy. You tried.

I’m also forced to point and laugh at their Frankenstein. I totally get the patchwork idea presented here, but they seem to have sewn his tank top to his body…and that’s hysterical.

Check out the rest of the line below, and look for the lot in stores and at your favorite online toy dealer now.

Sideshow Teaming with Project Raygun on New Court of the Dead Tabletop Game

Published

on

If you’ve been reading this site for the past few years, you should be well aware of Sideshow’s awesome collectibles known as the Court of the Dead. If you’re as big a fan of the line as we are, then you’ll be excited to hear that a Kickstarter campaign is about to kick off for a tabletop game titled Court of the Dead: Mourners Call.

Mixing creepy cool Court of the Dead artwork and a bunch of awesome new super-detailed 3D miniatures, the game is going to be a must-have for Court fans, as well as any dark fantasy and horror enthusiasts. This highly anticipated campaign marks the latest collaborative effort between Project Raygun and Sideshow, and it will be managed by James Hudson of Druid City Games.

The Kickstarter launch is slated to commence in late April and run through mid-May. Those who contribute to the campaign have a chance to score a bunch of insane exclusives, and you can find out more by clicking here.

“Court of the Dead: Mourners Call is more than just a tabletop game; it’s an immersive in-world experience,” said Tom Gilliland, Sideshow Chief Creative Officer and creator of the Court of the Dead. Through highly-detailed card art and ornate 3D miniatures, players will be transported to the macabre and magical Underworld. Players face grave circumstances: They must balance both cooperative and competitive objectives by working with the other players to appease the morally bankrupt, oppressive celestial overlords in a way that achieves their own individual vision of a unified Underworld, ready to rise up in rebellion.

Stay up-to-date on Court of the Dead: Mourners Call news (and sign up for updates)  at MournersCall.com. A steady stream of exciting Kickstarter exclusives, deluxe milestone rewards, and special stretch goals will delight campaign supporters. For more information and details, visit ProjectRaygun.com.
