This Halloween a new name in horror slashes his way onto the comic book scene in Pumpkinface – Origins. The kickstarter campaign for the project is now live!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1473164285/pumpkinface-origins

Pumpkinface – Origins is a dark, twisted, psychological slasher set in Edwardian era Edinburgh.

A broken man in an asylum under the care of Dr. Lutwitdge, Jack recounts the story of his murdered family in hope of finding clues to their killer.

As his treatment continues, the line between fantasy and reality is blurred and Jack falls further behind the mask in an attempt to find the truth and avenge his wife and daughter’s deaths.

Writer Graeme Buchan created Pumpkinface for a short film at Halloween a few years ago. The character was then supposed to have his own comic book but became part of the Creepy Scarlett series as a mysterious sidekick of the main villain. Finally the origins of Pumpkinface are revealed in this Halloween special exclusively on kickstarter. Rewards include original inked pages from the book and custom built Pumpkinface Lego figures.

Bandai makes some great toys so if you’re looking forward to Disney’s first CG Marvel movie Big Hero 6, then you should get excited about the upcoming toy line. Yes they have an extensive toy line that will be releasing in support of the movie. If you’re a huge fan then you’ll also need to check out the Disney Store because they’re getting slightly different models. What’s interesting is that Baymax seems to be growing in popularity. Two toy sites that I saw talking about this figure (including the source) both stated more as fact than speculation, that Baymax is the star. It seems that even Disney is banking on that as Baymax has the most figure variations, but for me I say that’s because they could do figure variations with him. At any rate I found that interesting.

We all know that Cyborg Ninja is one of the coolest things ever about the Metal Gear Solid line. The character is just too cool. Revol has a line of mini’s coming out for Metal Gear Solidas a part of their mini line. There’s also a couple of Snake and then a prototype of Venom Snake. All-in-all, they’re very cool. Cyborg Ninja is going to run you 30 bucks and I would imagine the others are the same or close to that.

I absolutely love the short hair version of Ms. Cain. She looks really cool. That’s the variant version of course as the regular version has her with the wig and mask on. What wasn’t revealed with this statue was the price or release date so keep an eye out for that, but I would imagine it’s next year considering how many statues they already have coming in Q3 and Q4 of this year.

Guyverwas one of the first anime’s I ever saw and so of course I have a soft spot for it, but the thing is… it’s still a really cool anime. It’s rare that something holds up once you’ve taken off the nostaliga glasses, but Guyvermanaged it. This figure is awesome looking. It began pre-orders this week and will be out in November. If you get it from Good Smile you get the cool background for the figure otherwise it’s just solo. It’s only 50 bucks which is more than worth it in my opinion.

Penis, Penis, Penis! Nancy Silberkleit Removed From Archie Booth At Comic-Con

ICv2reports seeing security and police at the Archie booth this past weekend at Comic-Con. Their goal? To remove co-CEO Nancy Silberkleit from the showroom floor. Eventually it did happen, but the question is why? So far there hasn’t been a statement. Silberkleit has had a ton of legal disputes over the past few years from nearly being ousted as co-CEO which was eventually settled outside of the…

I have a lot of respect for the Mega64 team. They put out great videos that actually contain a lot of commentary (at times) and have gotten to the point that franchises and products approach them to make videos.
