Boss Fight Studio Reveal Sam & Max Figures


Back in May, Boss Fight Studio announced that they'd be doing an action figure line based on Steve Purcell’s popular Sam & Max characters. Now, they've unveiled a look at the first figures!

Check out both the Sam and Max collectible action figures posted below...


We've got lots of great surprises to show off this weekend, but we'll start with this one because we know people have been waiting to see a better look at these knuckleheads.

Steve Purcell's Sam & Max Freelance Police collectible toys coming soon from Boss Fight Studio!


These both look great! We're absolutely loving the sculpting and paint work present here, as both Sam and Max look as though they've jumped right off the printed page! Astonishing!

For those who don't know, both characters have featured in comics, video games and an animated series. The duo first debuted back in 1987 before getting their own Lucasarts video game in 1993. Then in 1997, a 27-episode animated TV series kicked off on Fox Kids.

Boss Fight Studio will put the first Sam & Max figures up for pre-order later this year!

Here's hoping we'll be able to get our hands on a few review samples for you guys!

HBO Orders Watchmen To Series


HBO has ordered Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen to series.

The show is based on the DC graphic novel from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, set in an alternate history where superheroes are treated as outlaws.

Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Lily Rose Smith, and Adelynn Spoon all star.

Lindelof will write and executive produce, with Nicole Kassell directing the pilot and executive producing. Stephen Williams will also direct and executive produce, with Joseph Iberti and Tom Spezialy also executive producing.

According to the network, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own. This is in line with what Lindelof said a few months back, in that the show will not be a re-telling of the story from the graphic novel, but rather a new story in the same world with new characters set in the present day.

Watchmen is slated to debut on HBO in 2019.

Boss Fight Studio Bows Before The King Of Accord


It's no secret that we're pretty big fans of the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. line from Boss Fight Studio, but when it was initially announced that the series would be diverting from Greek Mythology to a more Fantasy based focus, we must admit we were somewhat disappointed.

It's not that we didn't like the idea of the line switching gears, it's just that we're more into the spears and shields of ancient history than the swords and sorcery of the middle ages. Despite this, we felt it only fair to give the new assortment a look when they became available last summer, and you know what? We're really glad that we did! The Fantasy based Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figures are insanely good, and seem to get better with each subsequent release.

However, none has captured our imagination more than the recently released King Of Accord himself, Lance Steelblade! Let's take a look at this truly royal piece...

Released as part of the third wave of Fantasy based Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figures back in the spring, King Lance Steelblade is a 4" action figure that looks as though he's just stepped out of a rather intense game of Dungeons & Dragons. Fans shouldn't expect this king to be the type of ruler that just sits on his throne behind some heavily fortified castle walls, this guy clearly enjoys being right in the thick of battle as is evident by the overall presentation of the piece.

Using last year's Knight Of Accord as its base, Lance Steelblade trades in the traditional flowing robes and sceptre for some regal white armor. This ensemble gives the figure some very nice bulk, and includes some intricate golden etching spread throughout - a nice feature that really pops, and even extends to the included shield and multiple weapons.  

As one has come to expect from previous offerings in this wave, the overall presentation here is extremely pleasing to behold in person. The sculpt is strong and features some very nice additional details, ranging from rivets to buckles and snaps, that give the figure some very impressive depth. Additionally, the paint work is incredibly strong, and we must once again applaud the efforts of the artisans at Boss Fight Studio! The applications throughout are first rate and, even after a very through examination, we're pleased to report that the King Of Accord is free of any major paint issues - including splotches, smears, smudges and the like.

As if the impressive coat of paint wasn't reason enough to love this figure, fans will be pleased to learn that the King Of Accord also features a plentiful range of motion throughout his tiny plastic body! Boss Fight Studio has given this one movement in the head, neck, shoulders, arms, biceps, wrists, waistline, thighs, legs, knees and feet respectively. Each extension is made up of numerous tight, fluid joints that allow for the perfect execution of any pose you can think of.

Adding to this impressive amount of articulation, fans will be very happy to learn that all of the king's included armoured bits made up of a very soft plastic. This not only allows for easy removal during customization, but in no way does it hinder the range of motion on the figure.

This entire ensemble offers a near perfect blend of form and functionality, with each joint remaining nice and strong despite repeated usage and posing. This looks to promise a nice long shelf life for fans and collectors who tend to worry about joint deterioration with the passage of time - which is all of us, isn't it?

And then, we have the accessories.

Following in the footsteps of such previously released pieces as the Knight Of Accord and the excellent Orc Conqueror, Boss Fight Studio has loaded up Lance Steelblade with goodies! Aside from such common pieces as interchangeable hands, multiple helmets and the ever present display stand, the King Of Accord also includes attachable shoulder pauldrons, greaves, a visor and cape. But, that's not all! Boss Fight Studio has also included three interchangeable heads to the package, each of a varying ethnicity that is perfect for those looking to army build a garrison of elite royal guards. And then, we have a sword, a battle ax, a beautifully detailed shield sporting a uniquely styled coat of arms, a mounted pennant, and a very cool scabbard that can be worn on the back or hip of the figure.

All of these included accessories feature the same stellar paint work making up the main figure and offer plenty of display options for fans looking to get the most out of this impressive line.

The King Of Accord comes to fans in the same collector friendly packaging that we've seen time and again with this line - allowing fans to place the figure and its included accessories back within its plastic prison on a mere whim. This is something we've come to appreciate about the line more and more with the passage of time, and sincerely wish larger action figure manufacturers would follow in these footsteps.

But, you can't have everything, sadly.

In any case, Boss Fight Studio has once again crafted a winner with the King Of Accord! This is an extremely strong and satisfying addition to the line - and easily our most favorite entry to date! The Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. line can do no wrong, and we're more than pleased with the final product set before us.

Once again, Boss Fight Studio has revived our faith in the smaller scale action figure! They've shown us that these tiny toys can stand toe-to-toe with the larger, pricier action figures that have begun trickling out into the market in recent years, and shown the big brand toy companies how an action figure should be made.

The end result here is a truly amazing little action figure that fans are sure to love!

Thanks to a strong sculpt, oodles of articulation, nicely added details, superb paint work and plenty of accessories allowing for multiple display options, the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. King Of Accord has set the bar to new heights, and we feel Boss Fight Studio really has their work cut out for them if they ever hope to top this near perfect piece of plastic perfection!

We have absolutely nothing negative to say about this one, and must take a moment to give our friends at Boss Fight Studio a tip of the hat. They've truly outdone themselves here, and we're betting fans will be seeing the King Of Accord pop up again at the end of the year!

He's really that good!

So, in short, if you love the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. line, you need King Lance Steelblade in your collection! If you're a fan or collector of strong, smaller scale action figures, you need King Lance Steelblade in your collection! Do you love fantasy, Midvale Times, Dungeons & Dragons, swords, sorcery, or constitutional monarchies?

Hell, do you like Monty Python And The Holy Grail? Or King Arthur? How about Knighfall?

Yeah, if you haven't figured out what we're trying to say just yet, you need King Lance Steelblade in your collection! This is the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figure of the year, effortlessly raising the bar and setting the stage for the future of the line!
