40% off Kidrobot Major Lazer edition 8-inch vinyl Mascot with code 40pctoff


1984: the Olympic Games are held in LA, President Reagan runs for re-election, the AIDS epidemic runs rampant, and underneath it all, the secret Zombie War rages. One secret soldier is rescued from the fray, his arm gone, but his spirit strong. He is given an experimental lazer prosthetic and hired by the CIA to continue his fight against the forces of evil. He fronts as a dancehall nightclub owner from Trinidad, though in truth, he is a badass Jamaican keeping the world safe from vampires and monsters, while partying hard and tweeting.



Major Lazer Kidrobot is an 8 inch vinyl homage to the renegade soldier turned CIA operative. A collaborative project of the DJ/producers Diplo and Switch, Major Lazer debuted with the album Guns Don't Kill People... Lazers Do in 2009, followed by Lazers Never Die in 2010. Major Lazer Kidrobot has a uniquely sculpted head and lazer arm to properly capture his eighties commando style and signature prosthetic.

This 8" vinyl figure usually sells for $49.95, but for a limited time only you can snatch one up for only $29.97 at the Tenacious Toys online store by using the code 40pctoff.

40% off Scott Tolleson Doc von Block ILL wooden toy with code 40pctoff


Born and raised as the only child of successful circus performers,  Bobby Von Block was a lonely, misunderstood child who was often teased by the other children for being too square.

After high school Bobby dropped out of  college because he found it too difficult trying to obtain a PhD in Happy  Sciences. Instead, he decided to focus on earning a Master of Madness in Evil  Sciences. Von Block now lives deep in the forest of Transylgrainia where he  spends his days concocting formulas to destroy butterflies, unicorns, bunny  rabbits and all other cheerful creatures.


Doc Von Block stands at 5" tall, each accompanied by an Ivan the Beaker accessory. These toys are made of 100% high grade wood and packaged in keepsake wood boxes.

Hot Toys 1966 Batman and Robin


Plenty of girls and bands and slogans and lots of hoopla, but remember, no politics. Issues confuse people - once said by The Penguin!!

Well we certainly not confused about who these two are, long awaited release of the official pictures was made public last week, and by the orders I’ve had, its sure did not disappoint!



Based obviously on the 1966 Batman and Robin, Hot Toys have done a fantastic job on these great sculpts of Adam West and Burt Ward.

I’m sure we all remember watching the series when we was younger, a far cry from the Nolan era of Batman but nostalgia is a wonderful thing!

Listing the specs of each will take up too much space, but pics below shows what you get.  USA Canada customers go to Sideshow, UK and EU head to OneSixthBruce



Thanks you for reading and KAPOW!!!
