Hot Toys Inglourious Basterds Aldo Raine Teaser

Kudos to the REBEL, from whom i found out this teaser...you can read the official post over at Hot Toy's Blog.

Whilst pleased to see this teaser of the highly anticipated and long awaited Aldo Raine, i do agree with the Rebel that it's still got some way before hitting it as a top notch sculpt. Nevertheless, its a pretty fine sculpt of Brad Pitt at his best in inglourious basterds, but i'd be patiently awaiting some tweaking, as per Hot Toy's usual standards.

Missing Button on DX joker

this killjoy has mowed down any chance of me doing a photo review of the figure, but as far as i can see, my DX joker is missing a button from his green waistcoat, second from the top.

hopefully i can find some what to do something about it, mailing TFH about it, dont' know if i'd get a replacement in any way.

Hot Toys: Terminator 2 Judgement Day Sneak Peek ( He's Back )

Nothing makes a man's day like flipping on the television and seeing good ol' Arnie whooping ass as his famous persona, the Terminator. So it should be no different when we see pictures and news of him in 1/6th form online.

1/6th the scale, no less in the sheer magnitude of coolness and awesomeness.

This is surely one helluva of piece to grace any collector's shelve. Though i'm pondering on the possibility of variants, and i'm pretty sure we'd get to see a battle damaged version arriving, shot up and bleeding out and exposing the full terror of the endoskeleton.
