Toy Soul Hong Kong Exclusive Acid Rain Raptor Speeder And Pilot

Acid-Rain-World-Toy-Soul-HK-Raptor-01---Hisstank Our friend Kit Lau has been busy preparing for the 2014 Toy Soul Convention in Hong Kong. Not only is there an amazing Acid Rain display (more on that later), but an exclusive Raptor Speeder Mk I with Pilot will be available at the show!

The exclusive Raptor has been painted to give it a real "rusted out" look and feel. Kit paints each piece by hand, so you can almost guarantee that no 2 will be the same! The Pilot also features a bit of weather and different accessories, including a red painted mask. Images have been shared via the Acid Rain Instagram Page and have been mirrored here to show you the painstaking process of creating each custom masterpiece.

The Booth setup at Toy Soul Hong Kong is absolutely amazing, with new product on display. Of not is the upcoming BEAVER Industrial Mech, Laurel Mech Suits and more! If you find yourself at the show, make sure to pick up one of the exclusive Raptors as they're sure to sell out quickly! You can check out our Raptor Speeder Mk I Review or you can head on over to Big Bad Toy Store to pick one up for yourself!

015-Cobra-Commander-25th-Anniversary-Modern-Era Absolute power! Total control of the world. its people, wealth, and resources - that’s the objective of COBRA COMMANDER. This fanatical leader of COBRA rules with an iron fist. He demands total loyalty and allegiance. His main battle plan, for world control, relies on revolution and chaos. He personally led uprisings in the Middle East, Southeast Asia and other trouble spots.

COBRA COMMANDER is hatred and evil personified. A corrupt man without scruples. Probably the most dangerous man alive!

Marauder Task Force Action Figure Shipment Delay

marauder_logo---Hisstank Our good friend Marauder John stopped by to advise us all of a Quality Control issue that the team at Marauder Inc have come across while getting their highly anticipated Marauder Task Force figures ready for shipment. Here's the scoop -

----------

Hey Folks,
Here is the update we just posted on Kickstarter. It has been a DARK day at the Marauder Offices....

Dear MTF Supporters,

Our goal was to have all orders arrive or ship before Christmas, but that is no longer possible. While packing the orders we found some structural issues with the figures. Issues that are not easy to detect, but appear to be widespread throughout the figures. We worked with the factory engineers to solve the problems and the only sure solution is to REPLACE all the figures. Consequently, we won’t be able to ship any orders for several weeks while we wait for the replacement figures to arrive.

Needless to say, we are absolutely devastated. To be on the home stretch and have this happen at the last moment is beyond anything we could have imagined. Our time table and plans were right on target, and we have kept you all updated all along the way…but this unforeseen problem took us by surprise. The only bright spot is we discovered the issues BEFORE the orders shipped.

We apologize for this delay, will keep continue to keep you updated as we go forward and hope to regain your support by quickly solving the problem & shipping your orders.

Sincerely,

MJ & the entire Marauder team

----------

Disappointing? Sure. That said though, the level of Customer Service that John and the Gun Running team have provided throughout this entire project has been absolutely stellar. How many times have you received a figure from another company and that figure had QC issues? Thankfully, that's one scenario that we'll hopefully never encounter, thanks to John and the Gang!

So on that note, join us after the break to catch up on discussion already in progress!

Actor Patrick Stewart Gets Quizzed On G.I. Joe

patrick-stewart1 It's always wonderful to hear Sir Patrick Stewart talk.

It so happens that National Public Radio interviewed Sir Stewart to ask him about G. I. Joe.

SAGAL: Here we go. Now G.I. Joe - I'm sure you've been in the United States long enough to know what these are. These are these eight inch dolls that look like soldiers, G.I. Joes, yes?

STEWART: Yeah, yeah, I know what they are.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: I'm sorry. I need to shrivel now for a bit.

STEWART: No I didn't mean that to be patronizing.

SAGAL: Too late.

STEWART: I do know what they are and I even know what G.I. stands for.


You can read and listen to the rest of the Interview where Sir Patrick Stewart answers three questions about G. I. Joe brand at National Public Radio.
