I’ve been to several Comic-Cons, but never Toy Fair, the toys and collectibles trade show that’s held…I actually don’t know with what regularity they hold Toy Fair. Anybody? Well it was definitely held this past weekend, and like some kind of dream, it featured a ton of new toys I absolutely want to buy. But knowing the market for really awesome action figures these days, there’s very little chance I’ll ever actually see any of these in my local Wal-Mart. But I can dream.
I mean, check out this awesome Puck action figure!
As fans of my blog know, I have a big ‘Geek Wall’ in my apartment (which the ladies love, I assure you…right, ladies?). And I’m always looking for awesome new action figures to add to the wall. Besides Puck, what about this fantastic Scarlet Spider! As one of the comics I regularly review, I’ve got to buy this Scarlet Spider action figure. It’s now a life mission.
Join me after the jump for more awesome Toy Fair action figures!
Another hilarious Axe Cop animated short to remind us that the series will debut on July 27! Rejoice and enjoy!
Nick Offerman is the perfect Axe Cop. Best. Casting. Ever. I still can’t believe that Axe Cop is really going to be a cartoon. It seems impossible that the universe would be this giving. But we shall see in July! And if you haven’t yet, check out the Axe Cop comic to see what all the fuss is about.
The words ‘animated Axe Cop’ alone should be enough to make your eyeballs melt with buttery excitement.
And the fact that he’s voice by Ron F&cking Swanson is just perfect. Who hired him for the voice? They deserve a Nobel Peace Prize. We’ve known for awhile now that Fox’s Animation Domination is working on an Axe Cop cartoon, and this video appears to be a test animation to see how it’s coming along. I declare that it’s absolutely perfect!
This may be the greatest news in ax-wielding law enforcement animation since the ring fell off Chief Wiggum’s pudding cap. Insane-in-all-the-best-ways web comic Axe Cop has been optioned for an animated cartoon on FOX’s new Animation Domination HD Saturday night block. According to Deadline Hollywood, FOX has ordered six 15-minute episodes of the brilliant web series about an ax-wielding cop and his partner, who is sometimes either a flute cop, a dinosaur cop, a dinosaur soldier or an avocado soldier. It varies. The series is set to debut early next year. But you can spend the time waiting by reading the Axe Cop comic!
If you’ve never heard of Axe Cop, then shame on you. Click that link right now and go read this marvelously amazing series. It will rot your brain with its awesomeness and then rebuild your brain with even more awesomeness. I lack the literary skill to express in mere words the incredible brilliance of Axe Cop.
But here is a smidgen of its greatness as Axe Cop and Flute Cop fight dinosaurs in just the first strip!
The genius of Axe Cop comes from the mind of 5-year-old Malachai Nicolle, or at least he was 5 when the comic started in 2010. Malachai’s 30-year-old brother Ethan was an artist, and he started drawing all the insane ideas that his brother could come up with. The comic is wildly out of control when it comes to ides. From the ever transmorphing sidekick to characters like the Unicorn Baby, the vampire/ninja/werewolf/wizard/shark/crab brother Moon Warriors to Sock-a-Rang!
Seriously, if you’ve ever trusted me about anything, then take my word that this web comic has to be seen to be believed. You will not be disappointed. And if you are, then you and I have wildly conflicting senses of humor. Because I am in love with Axe Cop.
They also have a pet T-Rex with machine gun arms.
