CCI 2018: WMM’s Amazing Custom Items For SDCC

Published

on

War Machine Marketing has teamed up with artists throughout North America to create some of the most intricate, special, limited-edition items. Though their custom trade is year-round, some incredibly special items are being made for San Diego Comic Con 2018. From Star Wars characters that have never had their own action figure, to the re-imagining of some of our favorite characters, War Machine Marketing creates pieces SO limited and exclusive that to own one puts the collector in a category all their own.

War Machine Marketing is doing 4 different custom items based on the Funko line of figures. Each item will be sold to the winners of a lottery. One per day. Tickets will be given out each morning between 9-11am and the drawing will occur at noon each day. Winners must be at the booth to make the purchase immediately following the drawing.

The maniacal clown, PENNYWISE from the hit movie, IT, gets a brand-new treatment from the hands of amazing artist, Richie Mitchell. Pennywise is presented in his underground home next to a sewer pipe where words inside the pipe read “WE ALL FLOAT DOWN HERE”. The artist has also added a way to put batteries in the scene, to make the lights of Pennywise’s eyes and the words in the sewer pipe light up! It’s an amazing effect and one that will blow away fans of the movie. The Pennywise scene is limited to 5 numbered pieces at $350 per piece.

Artist Ben Flater has created 5 glitter-encrusted crustacean creations! Pop figures of Tamatoa from the hit Disney movie, MOANA, have been hand-foiled in shiny glitter to complement the character’s song in the movie. His entire body is covered in colorful glitter, giving him an amazing shine in any light. Even HE would be impressed with the shiny veneer! The Tamatoa figure is limited to 5 numbered pieces at $200 per piece.

War Machine’s DIAMOND TRIBUTE to the one and only Carrie Fisher debuts at SDCC as well. A crystal-encrusted version will be made available of her Princess Leia character from STAR WARS EPISODE 4: A NEW HOPE. This beautiful figure took over 12 hours to create by hand with over 2,400 crystals adorning every part of her from her signature hair buns to her skin to her white dress. This truly highlights the artist’s and company’s love of Star Wars. This piece is limited to 5 numbered pieces with commemorative card inserts at $200 per piece.

Ben Flater’s amazing Merc With A Mouth, DEADPOOL, is like nothing that has ever been seen! Deadpool has had many iterations of his character over the years from samurais to cooks to even a version of friendly artist, Bob Ross. This mash-up is of him laying down as a mermaid. We wanted to make sure that our makeover included multicolored crystals to highlight his…*ahem* added attributes. He is covered with over 2,400 crystals by hand taking over 7 hours per figure. This piece is limited to 3 numbered pieces.
War Machine Marketing will also be a sponsor for the sold-out 501st Legion Party during San Diego Comic Con 2018. For this event, and to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the insanely bizarre (and often reviled) Star Wars Holiday Special which debuted and was shown only once back in 1978, War Machine Marketing is proud to have created an action figure of the late Bea Arthur’s bartender character, ACKMENA. She will come with 8 points of articulation as well as a blaster pistol, a pitcher and cup. Her action figure was created by long time War Machine Marketing collaborator, Kevin Ferrier for SWK ACTION FIGURES and the custom card was done by Scott Kruger of Scott Kruger Graphic design. This is a one of a kind action figure and the lucky winner of this item will have the ONLY carded version of this figure in the world!

War Machine Marketing will also be showcasing many other custom action figures at their booth (#1415) at San Diego Comic Con including action figures that were never put into production, custom action figures of people, and mash ups that will blow people’s minds!

Masterchef Is Back! For Halo Season 2

Published

on

A quick recap – Halo is set in a war-torn 26th century, where humanity led by the United Nations Space Command or UNSC and their supersoldiers known as Spartans, fights against the onslaught of the alien conglomerate known as the Covenant. The full dust-up of Halo Season 1, can be found here. Onward into the introduction of Halo Season 2!

It’s been six months since the forced separation of Spartan Masterchief John (Pablo Schreiber) and Cortana (Jen Taylor), and the Silver Team has been sent on a mission to evacuate residents of the planet Sanctuary before the Covenant glasses the whole thing. This comes with its own set of challenges, given the resistance of the planet’s inhabitants, and it doesn’t help that Masterchef starts seeing things right in the middle of trying to save some marines. Or is he? Those energy swords the squad of Elites were carrying looked worryingly real.

Back on Reach, the Silver Team is entirely dismayed to learn they have a brand new Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) representative come in as the new boss, to finally replace the traitorous Halsey, James Ackerson (Joseph Morgan). And of course, Ackerson manages to immediately get under Masterchief’s skin, by not only expressing far too much interest in John’s relationship with Cortana but also apparently disbelieving of John’s report of his encounters on Sanctuary. That just means Masterchief has to go around, if not entirely over, Ackerson’s head.

Elsewhere, Soren (Bokeem Woodbine) is trolling the slave markets in his boredom, only to stumble across a soon-to-be indentured servant who claims he knows the whereabouts of the UNSC’s most hunted human, Catherine Halsey (Natascha McElhone). That should bring a huge bounty, but really, Soren should’ve known better by now.

Halo Season 2 premieres Thursday, February 8th, 2024, and will continue to air every Thursday, only on Paramount+!

Reborn as a Vending Machine I Now Wander the Dungeon’: I look forward to your next use!  

Published

on

If the title of this delightful little isekai anime entry didn’t give it all away, our nameless protagonist is a vending machine fanatic who, after being killed by a vending machine, gets reincarnated in another fantasy-style world as one! 

Japan has a tendency to give birth to all sorts of crazed fads that can last for decades, and no one does better when it comes to the vending machine industry, too. These days there are vending machines that will serve you sushi you can actually eat, hot pizza in the box, wagyu steaks, freshly popped popcorn, and a whole mind-boggling array of tasty treats, and other non-edible but still useful items! Umbrellas! Condoms! Oxygen masks, sterile bandages, shoes, and emergency clothing! Actually, far more things that we use on an everyday basis, could be considered as technically a vending machine, and the anime explores that beautifully. Into the world of vending machine fanaticism, we dive! 

So our poor protagonist never gave a name, and inevitably when he’s discovered by his first official friend the starving hunter Lammis, she dubs him “Boxxo”. Like many isekai that seem to take inspiration from video games and RPGs, Boxxo discovers he ways he can communicate, level up his existence, and even evince magic-like powers and attack and defend against monsters and enemies. Though in the beginning, and as an underlying theme throughout the show, Boxxo is primarily concerned with providing unique never-before-tasted-in-this-world food and drink to the amazed folk, human and otherwise. 

Boxxo’s prices are entirely reasonable and hey, he can even choose to give out his wares for free on occasion, so his popularity immediately skyrockets. Lammis with her awkward charm and prodigious strength blessing, introduces Boxxo to other friends of Clearflow Lake Village and associates along the way – Director Bear, an actual bear-monster who’s the head of the Hunters Association; Lammis’ friend Hulemy, the insane genius magic item engineer; the Bearcats Suco, Pell, Short and Mikenne, cheerful hunters with astronomic appetites; even suspicious Kerioyl, leader of the Menagerie of Fools party. 

The show approaches the practicality and versatility of the true vending machine with amusement, but also with the love true fans display for things they’re passionate about. Certainly, things like a brothel needing a condom vending machine exist in our world, but to toss them into a potentially more innocent other-world isekai is a welcome and often hilarious treat. The show celebrates the cheerful idiocy and devotion of the fans to their chosen fandom, in this case, yes vending machines, but also the spirit of the lonely otaku finally finding their Tribe!
