McFarlane Toys- The Walking Dead & WWE at Toy Fair 2015

 McFarlane Toys revealed a bunch of kick ass toys, that I think will be of interest to many of you. I'm gonna be showing you pics that I took from two toy lines of from there that fall under that category: The Walking Dead and WWE statues.

First off it is worth mentioning that the man, himself, Todd McFarlane (left with me) was there! I got talk to him for a bit, and told him how I had met him back in the 90s when he signed Spawn figures at a Toys 'R' Us (or was FAO Schwartz? Don't remember since it was ages ago...). He told me an awesome and funny tale of a fan he met recently who told him that he had met him 10 years ago and had a pic of it. They got a new pic, and McFarlane told him that they should get a pic together every ten years, take a new pic, and keep comparing them. Till the day he dies, then McFarlane can pose next to his grave, cause he will outlive him. Too funny! McFarlane is an awesome and real nice guy, in person.

Anyways, on to the toys!

There are two new and amazing WWE statues that will be coming out. Both are WWE legends and former world champs who achieved their success during the much loved (and missed) Attitude Era: HHH and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin! They are both amazing looking. The detail and closeness to their subjects is incredible, as is the cool pose that they each have. My only complain? I wish Austin was flipping the bird!

Speaking of statues, remember the amazing comic-book based statue of Rick battling two walkers and blowing one of their brains out? Well, here it is (below) now, fully painted!!

McFarlane will also be releasing more figures based on the both the AMC show and the comic-book. Must of these will be out in the Fall. You can also see some other statues in the background of the figures, including a preview of a Michonne (first picture directly below this paragraph) statue that is coming out!

Finally, in what might the best playset ever, the prison from TWD is coming out with mini-figures that will help you have THE ultimate display at your house! This has to be a TWD fan's wet dream come true. Well, the one that doesn't involve naked Maggie, Tara, Rosita, and hot lesbian sex, anyway! It should also be noted that despite their small size, the detail is fucking amazing on them!!

Girlfriends Films at AEE 2015- Fri

Since my very first time at the Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE), the Girlfriends Films booth has always been one of the very best at the entire show. This year it was no different. The line was always long and was always busy there, as fans kept coming over to meet the gorgeous adult stars signing there. And, as always, they had some of the most beautiful women in entire show. Plus, they make great movies, especially since my tastes always tend to lean towards girl-girl movies.

The first person that I went up to was the beautiful Tasha Reign. She looked hot as fuck in that outfit!

Next  to her is one of my favorite babes currently in the industry: AJ Applegate. AJ is beautiful and has a truly amazing ass! It has has gotten her a lot well deserved notoriety among skin fans. But, I would also like to say that she has truly stunning eyes and lovely smile to go with her very pretty face. There is a cute and naughty factor with her that works perfectly in the hot scenes that she stars in. 

Up next is one of the coolest girls in the entire industry: Dana DeArmond!! Dana and I got to chat a little bit. It was good to see her, a year after she provided me with one of the best, if not the best, on camera interview, I have ever had the pleasure of conducting. As always, Dana is hilarious and fun to be around. I lover her outspoken personality. It really makes her one of the most awesome women that you will ever come across. Also, the pizza outfit that she had on, was fuckin kick ass, and she, of course, looked beautiful in it.

Up next is one of Girlfriends Films contracts girls, the always beautiful Prinzzess. It just isn't the GFF booth at AEE without this beauty! Those big, beautiful eyes of hers are just breathtaking!

Up next are two ladies who I had never had the pleasure of meeting before. A relative newcomer to the business, the gorgeous MILF that is Mindi Mink is totally fucking awesome in person! From the first moment that I saw her, I was immediately taken by her beauty. Then, I was fully won over by her friendly demeanor. She very openly and honestly talked to fans and myself. I was shocked to find out that she is 46 years old! I couldn't believe it, as she looks simply incredible. Her incredibly likable personality shows that has in inner beauty to match her outer looks. Mindi posed for many pics and told me about her upcoming movies, and about her being a contract girl with GFF. She wanted to film girl-girl scenes, and she felt that this was the best company to do just that. I agree with her 100%! Her beauty, sexiness, and class are perfect for this company and their excellent product!

Last, but certainly not least, we have the gorgeous Georgina Jones. My God, this girl is just absolutely breathtaking in person. She is a young and natural beauty with stunning eyes that alone are seemingly made to break hearts. But, despite her exquisite beauty, she has an amazingly sweet and highly approachable personality. Her line was long, but it's well worth waiting on. She loves to just talk to people, in such a sweet and friendly manner that it is impossible to not be captivated by her. She is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most genuinely nice girls that I saw the entire three days that I was at the Expo. After all the hours in the two days that I had already been working there, she was a complete and welcome pleasure to be around.

Kid Robot's Adventure Time Awesomeness at Toy Fair 2015

As some of you may know, I am a HUGE Adventure Time fan. As such, I am very happy to report that Kid Robot has AWESOME toys coming out that will be coming very soon. I go to see them at this year's Toy Fair and was flipping out, as soon as I saw them! The detail and paint job on them is excellent. And, the cuteness/ kick ass level is over the top!

The mystery figures (shown above, left, and below) are must have for me! Although, I am not big into this type of toy, I am definitely buying these! They look to good for me to pass up on. This is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the upcoming toy lines that I am most excited for! Come on, just look at how freaking awesome they look!! In the pictures shown you will see that the figures are next to display and packaging that they will come in.

There were also be smaller key-chain figures (right), that are as equally impressive and cute. Yes, I'm gonna have to get these too! BMO alone is a MUST have!!!

Finally, look at these Finn figures to the left. They are larger (and NOT mystery toys) than the other figures and as such, are more expensive. But, as you can see from this picture, they will be well worth the price! The pink coat version will be a comic con exclusive, by the way. I've described my love for Adventure Time collectibles as an addiction, and I am very happy to see that Kid Robot will be contributing to it!

At the 2015 Adult Entertainment Expo I got to catch up with the beautiful and always fucking Kick ass and awesome, Raven Rockette. You may recall the last time I interviewed her was back at Exxxotica AC 2014. This time around she was a rocking a sexy vampire version of popular and beloved Batman bad girl Harley Quinn. There, we got to talk about Harley Quinn, vampires, what she is up to, her music, and more. Just follow the link below to see it:

NECA at Toy Fair 2015

NOTE: Most of the these toys will be rolling out in spring, summer, or autumn of this year.

NECA has long been one of my favorite toy companies. And, their booth is always one of my favorites to hit up at Toy Fair. This year it was no different as they had a huge amount of toys to please my, and your, love for horror, sci-fi, action, and metal with some of the finest action figures and geeky collectibles you are likely find ANYWHERE!

First off, is their ever growing and truly amazing line of Alien/ Aliens toys. Last year they gave us the stunning Alien Queen, now we are getting more figures from James Cameron's seminal sci-fi/ horror/ action classic.

The best gore scene in Aliens is when the heroic and noble Bishop is ripped in half by the aforementioned Alien Queen. Covered in cyborg "blood" bisected Bishop is bound to please the fans looking for more gooey looking figures in the series.

We will also be getting a Ripley in the powerlifter, so she can battle the Queen, right after her above mentioned friend gets torn in half! You will notice some Alien eggs in the pictures. Well, those are being sold in a six pack, with some open and closed. They will also come with facehuggers. Man, all these pieces will amount to some killer displays by fans!!!

Also coming out is a Ripley from the first film, with her flame thrower so she can BBQ some Xenomorphs!
More figures from the original horror classic are shown above, as well as a Xenomorph based on his appearance in the Alien 3 video game!
Are you one of those horror fans, who like me, said, goddamn I wish I had that Kenner figure that got pulled from stores in the 70's? If so NECA are gonna give you the chance to finally own him! Hell yeah! Just check out the awesome prototype to the left!

If we are gonna get some new Alien toys, then we some new Predator toys, too, right? Well despair not! As follows we are getting some fucking badass toys of the deadly hunter from another world!!! 

To the right you will see Predators that inspired/ based off of the old Kenner line, hence the crazy color schemes. The detail is, of course, amazing on these, and they look like they could hunt and kill ALL your other figures! The packaging, which you can see below, also recalls the old Kenner toys. These rank among some of my most anticipated releases this year!

Inspired by Dark Horse comics comes this beautiful and stunning Predator figure!

Sci-fi fans have even more to rejoice about as they are going to be releasing some truly breathtaking Planet of the Apes toys based on the original series of movies! 
 Eye-patch always equals badass!!!

Fellow Arnold Schwarzenegger fan also have a lot to rejoice about, as you will see with the following two toys. First off we are getting a giant Terminator 2: Judgement Day figure with three exchangeable heads. It is based on the scene in the movie where he blows up a bunch of cop cars with his badass gattling gun.

One of my favorite straight up action movies of the 80s has to be Commando. With a massive body-count and being ridiculously violent, this classic is getting it's own large figure of Arnie's Matrix character in the movie! I should state that the figure to the right is not the final yet. But, regardless it already looks fucking awesome!! I CANNOT wait to see the final product and get it for myself!

DC comic fans will be pleased to know that their also getting large figures as well. First off is a Superman based on the Christopher Reeves version of him (left). There is also a very mean looking Penguin from Tim Burton's Batman Returns. Meanwhile, video game lovers get some love too with a kick ass looking Batman from Batman: Arkham Knight (both are pictured below)!
In keeping with the video game theme we are also getting this cool as hell Halo Master Chief helmet!

As a metalhead, though, it's the upcoming Iron Maiden stuff that have me the most pumped. In fact, if you were to make me pick one thing that I loved the most at this year's Toy Fair it would be these. The amazing Powerslave bust, to the right, being my top pick. 
Based on the cover to the cover to the "2 Minutes to Midnight" single, this figure to the left, might be one of the most badass Eddie figures ever!. By the way, before you ask, his hand was broken off. So, it is not detachable nor is he suppose to be amputated!
Like your toys with cloth clothing? Then this killer figure based on the cover of Piece of Mind is for you! These Maiden figures cannot come out fast enough for me!!! 

Horror fans had more to rejoice as the following toys will surely prove:

First off we get another large figure in this amazing Leatherface. It comes with an interchangeable head, and I am loving his bloody apron. Based on his look from Tobe Hooper's original horror classic, you can tell that he has been a busy and messy man, disposing of teenagers and serving them for dinner!

Speaking of that version of Leatherface he is also getting his own clothed/ Mezco style figure along with the Jason Voorhees of the kick ass Friday the 13th Pt. VI: Jason Lives. In my humble opinion, that is the best of the F13 sequels (NOTE: I said sequels, not movie, the original remains the best), so I'm quite pleased with this one. Also, he will look cool next to my part 2, Jason! Both Jason and Leatherface (along with an already available Freddy) are to the left of this.

Continuing their video game inspired looks, we get a Mohawk from the Gremlins 2: The New Batch Nintendo video game. One of the greatest horror/ comedy sequels, is getting one of the absolute coolest figures I saw at the entire show!!!!So fuck yeah!

In the same vein, we have a Godzilla figure (left) that is inspired by his own Nintendo game. I actually owned that game, and kind of sort liked it as a kid. But, I'll admit it was far from great, maybe even far from good. But, it brings this horror and monster loving gamer a lot of fond memories. And, for that reason and the excellent sculpt and detail, I think it's another must have!!

I have one last figure (right) to share with you. This another one that is sure to also please fans of giant monsters. It's an addition to their spectacular Pacific Rim line. I love the fire breathing. It looks freaking awesome!!!
