Sideshow 1/6th Rene Belloq...

From my recently delivered batch of Indiana Jones items comes Indy's nefarious, Nazi collaborating rival, Rene Belloq...
In all honestly, if you're not a huge Indy fan (which I personally am), this is kind of a boring figure. The main reason to pick it up is for the exclusive version that Sideshow released that came with the Idol Chamber Base (as seen in the previous post).

Doesn't resemble actor, Paul Freeman all that much. Almost looks like a younger, George W. Bush...

"I said 'drop the idol', BITCH!"

Sideshow Indiana Jones 1/6th Idol Chamber Environment...

AHHHHH! Finally, the mysterious contents of the mystery box revealed!
Along with my recently posted requisition of Sideshow's 1/6th Raiders of the Lost Ark Rene Belloq came this exclusive 1/6th scale idol chamber environment...



This thing comes with another outlaying set of tile steps. However, it was all I could do to fit this portion of the piece into my light tent.


The sand bag comes with Sideshow's 1/6th Indy figure.


The idol, as well as the chamber base is constructed of polystone. HEAVY!!!



I absolutely LOVE this thing. If you're a die hard Indiana Jones fan like me, try and scrounge one of these bad boys up on Ebay (Sideshow is unfortunately sold out!).

Oh, and to any of you sick bastards that thought that the contents of the mystery box was going to be Gwenyth Paltrow's head- sorry to disappoint you.

MEDICOM GHOST RIDER VCD...

Not unlike my current fondess/obsession with Hasbro's Mighty Muggs, my recent purchase of Medicom's vinyl "Hamburger Head" Spawn figure has engendered in me a similar passion for their VCD line. I scored their Ghost Rider vinyl figure on Ebay a couple weeks ago...





Ghost Rider: "Dude, Nice spikes."
Spawn: "Dude, Nice chains."
Ghost Rider: "Dude, what the fuck happened to your face..?"
Spawn: "Dude, where the fuck is your face!?!"

This Week's Haul: Indiana Jones, Watchmen, And...The Mystery Box!?!

Fucks yeah! This past weekend was an all out Toy Fest here at MacBastard's secret underground lair. Yesterday morning I awoke to the sound of twin packages landing with a heavy thud upon my stoop and the door bell ringing. I found there the local mail lady, twin parcels at her feet, asking me to sign for a delivery confirmation. Hand trembling with excitement, I quickly signed, snatched up the packages, and dashed back into the apartment quicker than you can say "STOP THIEF"!
And what lay inside said parcels? Why merely a veritable treasure trove of 1/6th INDIANA JONES MADNESS THAT'S WHAT!
After a good month or two of debating which 1/6th scale Indiana Jones figure I'd be buying; Medicom's RAH, or Sideshow's 12 inch Indy, I finally opted to go with both. Luckily, I ended up snagging them on Ebay. Medicom's Indy cost me sixty dollars (a savings of close to 100 dollars if I'd ordered it through Sideshow's catalog), and Sideshow's Indiana Jones AND Rene' Belloque were bought in a single 100 dollar bid on Ebay as well (that's a savings of almost 120 dollars people. Dash MacBastard's Recession Busting Tips lesson #1: Always check Ebay first!).
Taking a spin over to K-Mart later, I found that the teensy weensy Hasbro Indiana Jones Adventure Heroes had been relegated to the clearance section. Each two pack had been marked down to $3.50. I picked up three sets. Loves me the Indy movies.
I was also pleasantly suprised to find that DC Direct had managed to crack the Toys R Us barrier and finally got their toys onto TRU's shelves. The Watchmen movie figures were there waiting for me, and I scored (Modern) Nite-Owl.
But wait. What's this...
Crammed into my Ebay packages was this unidentified, plain white mystery box...
My god! What the hell can it be!?!
Tune in next post to find out!


REVIEW: Watchmen...

I was going to post a full on, fanboy review of Watchmen. I'd taken in two sittings of the film, spent a week mulling it over, scribbled countless notes, went back and compared Snyder's work with Moore's graphic novel, and hacked out a lengthy rough draft.

In the end though, all I can really say is that I liked the film way, way more than Hitler did (gargantuan, interdimensional cephalopod-less ending and all)...

G.I. Joe's sexiest nemesis, The Baroness...



This summer, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra hits theaters. If there's one thing to look forward to in this movie, it's Sienna "White Hot Piece of Ass" Miller, strapped up in a form fitting, black leather body suit as The Baroness...

Jude Law, you goddamn fool...

Holy Crap...

Serinda Swan as Zatanna in the upcoming "Hex" episode of Smallville...


Honestly; If Abe Lincoln had looked this good in a top hat, there would never have been a Civil War. The agents of the Confederacy would have stared bleary eyed and slack jawed at our Nation's president, and done whatever he said.
