Final hours of the Hardcore Luchador Kickstarter

You may remember me talking about my friend Chris Smith’s Kickstarter for his Luchador comic book

Since that time it has been fully funded and they are making one final push (the more money the more issues can get made) in the next 14 hours before it ends.

Now before anyone thinks “I come here for MWOTR updates, not to be sold on something else”,  Chris and I have been talking over recent weeks and there is a very real possibility that if our schedules free up and there are the resources we may work together in the future. I for one would love to see the two worlds meet up in some fashion.

When we did Lee’s Johnny “Treegarr” Stumpz last year,  we opened up the door for cross brand promotion and cross brand matches. We still may do this again this year with another character but with our focus on PVC Series 2 and 3 there is only so much time and so many resources.

Any die hard fan of wrestling knows how important the cross brand events were to promotions back in “the day”, one need only look at things like AWA/WCCW SuperClash III where Kerry Von Erich lost in a controversial match to Jerry the King Lawler, or the always awesome NWA/WCW vs New Japan Super Shows to know the potential for some incredible stuff.  So if things work out we would love to partner with Chris and Angelo to expose both our brands to new fans in some way.

So we wish them the best of luck in their final hours!

MWOTR Comic Update and Reprinting

We sold out of the MWOTR Anthology Comic Book at C2E2, so we are having it reprinted.

This 2nd printing will have a new cover and “Convention” Exclusive will be removed from the front.

And Lee has begun warming up to start work on the 4th Volume, I should be sending him the overall script/details later this week and Volumes 4,5, and 6 will deal with our Tag Teams and possibly a Legends of the AWF Heavyweight Division issue.

Behind the Scenes: the Steel Mold for Series 1

Big thanks to Matt Doughty and Paul Wai for taking this amazing picture of MWTOR’s Series 1 Steel Mold

unnamed-20

You can begin to see that production of these figures is a bit more complicated then just making a figure and putting it in molding. There is a breakdown of parts that has to occur and those parts and sizes can fill up a mold very fast.

Back to full capacity

I have finally kicked that evil beast of Con Flu! And with that regular updates will resume tonight

We have on tape a host of things that will come probably every day including but not limited to Talos bio, and concept art for the odd Legend tag team known as Vision which you heard about first in Ransom Corazon’s bio.

So see you guys later tonight!

Hints about Series 2

While I finish up the long overdue Bio for Talos (I had it done months ago but photoshop crashed before I could save and I did not have the heart to retell his story again lol) I figured it would be fun to drop some hints about Series 2

We are aiming to have it released around NYCC time again this year, with production overseas though there is always the chance for delay due to the need for us to resculpt something or tweak something, and then of course get test shots and make sure everything is in top form for release!

Simon is finishing up the final sculpt as we speak. Once that is done it will go to Adam and Josh to clean up for production and then its off to China for molding!

With that said you have already seen Ulric 3.0, we won’t show you the remaining characters for awhile but I can start to lead you towards their identities

  • One figure is a Legends figure
  • One figure is being designed in a way as to utilize colored releases unlike any of our other characters have before

So there you go, that will narrow down who is coming to a handful of characters. As time nears for a reveal I will drop another set of hints 😉

Legends so far revealed in art and bios are:

Deadly Dawg Brooklyn (Bulldog)
Deadly Dawg Noah (Greyhound)
Guy “Big Daddy” Smith
Vision : Knowledge the Owl
Vision : Samuel “Stretch” Jackson the Giraffe
Takeshi Sumo

Also I shipped the first January prototype figures today, so by the end of the week those will finally be all shipped and I can start getting the mailaway figures to those who have redeemed.

Production Playmats are sold out!

Over the weekend we are happy to report the first run of production playmats have completely sold out. I have called to place a second production run of these and we should have those available again in a few weeks.

I have also sent Lee a few ideas for new environments that we hope to roll out as we get closer to the release of Series 2 of the PVC figures.

On a side note I am finally getting over whatever it was that I got at C2E2 so expect new updates to resume as well as shipping of January’s prototypes AND the shipping of the mail away figures.

Little Weirdos C2E2 Coverage

Pixel Dan was not the only press we met with at C2E2, I spent quite a bit of time with my friend Frank who runs Little Weirdos, he took home quite a bit of MWOTR goodness from C2E2 and talks about it at the link:

We also must apologize to the MWOTR nation, we have a ton of updates on non convention related items but I have been fighting the nastiest Con flu I have ever had in 11 years of doing Conventions. I think I almost have it beat so hopefully next week we can return with the remainder of the Generations bios, a look at the Yvonne Wolfrom mail away and begin putting things in place for  you guys to get glimpses of Volume 4 of the Comic book and Series 2 of the PVC 🙂
