Jurassic Park Designer Vinyl Figure Collection from 3DRetro

    I'm not much for theme parks, mainly because I'm not a ride kind of dude.  I'm terrified of heights so anything that stays close to the ground is ok, but that leaves out most of the fun stuff.  The few roller coasters I have somehow been convinced to ride didn't have any loops and the "fun" I had involved staring at my feet and praying for the whole thing to be over.  My favorite of those was the Scooby Doo coaster at Kings Dominion outside of Richmond, Virginia and that was only because I was rewarded for my bravery with a blue cupcake and slushie from the mushroom shaped stand in Smurf Village.  Being nauseous only put a slight damper on my victory.

   If someone would get on with making Jurassic Park a reality they could sell me a season pass right now.  We've all been waiting for it to happen since the first movie came out, but all these scientists are too worried about "ethics" and "liability" to give us the real life dinosaur experience we deserve.  We don't need robots landing on Mars, people, we need a Jurassic Park.  Preferably located in Florida so when things go bad no one will notice.

   Until we are given what we so justly deserve, we will have to use our imaginations in tandem with these vinyl figures from 3DRetro.  They have three different toys from three very different artists to interest even the most discerning of collectors.  The half dissected T-Rex you see above there as created by mural maker extraordinaire Nychos, the frilled spitty lizard as reimagined by Joe Ledbetter:

    And this cute little dinosaur cosplay of Juan Muniz's signature character, Filipe:

     These will be available starting today (November 28th) at noon pacific time only at

Suburban Vinyl Reveals More NYCC Exclusives

    There's so much cool stuff coming out for New York Comic Con and this year it really seems to be all about the smaller toy manufacturers.  These are people working hard at their art in between their day jobs and other responsibilities and it's great to see people like Suburban Vinyl supporting them by giving them such prominence at their booth.  

    Ministry of Kongz has been making some pretty cool toys based on Thai mythical creatures for soem time now, but check out these versions painted by Topheroy.  The Kruzzilla figures you see above are gonna be $40 each, while those insane Yakonimon figures you see below will be $70.  What you see pictured is all that will be available.  

    Check out this Bunny Boom Boom from JFury.  He's cast in Mountain Dew green resin, limited to 10 pieces, and will be $65.  On a side note, I am not allowed to drink Mountain Dew because all of the caffeine makes it impossible for me to shut up.  I swear there's something more sinister going on in that soda.

    And why not start a little bunny theme?  This is Philipe from Juan Muniz.  He's limited to 10 pieces and  priced at $30.  This guy has had his art featured in this season's The Ultimate Fighter house, so he probably picked up some deadly moves while he was there hanging his stuff.  I'm not trying to get choked out.
