A quick preview of an upcoming Ashley Wood 3A toy release of Emile from the Halo series
Ashley Wood returns with another toy in the Halo series for his 3A Toys company. This one debuts at www.bambalandstore.com next Friday Hong Kong time (typically late Thursday afternoon in the US) and should remain available for at least 24 hours.
I don't believe pricing is available yet, but it'll probably run about $200-$225 (I know, I know, ya'll can't afford that or dont think it's worth it). Anyway, if you can and you're a fan of the Halo series, check it out. These arent your dad's GI Joes.
Here are some stats:
figure stands 13.5 inches tall features: *Fiber-optic illuminated combat armor
*Magnetized Shoulder Shields that all weapons can be attached to
*Rubberized suit over a fully articulated body with complete outer armor attachments
*Fully articulated fingers
*Cloth utility pouch with functioning clasps
UNSC M45 TS shotgun
Removable Kukri knife with sheath
Chest grenades x 10
Waist grenades x 10
And now allow me to break gouki.com with these huge pics from 3A's production blog
Online gambling site offering odds on Super Street Fighter IV
1up.com reported yesterday about an online betting site based out of the UK offering betting on a championship fight for Super Street Fighter IV. While this almost sounds like a dream come true to a degenerate gambler such as myself, it's not because it's dumb.
First of all, I wouldnt trust sending my money overseas to Paddy Power. Having a glimpse at their site it looks like they're main focus is to take bets on absolutely ridiculous shit like "who will Cheryl Cole date first?" They have an entire page devoted to Cheryl Cole bets! I'm all for Cheryl Cole and I'm all for stupid prop bets like this, but I'm telling you they only do this shit because they're probably an awful sportsbook and offering dumbass lines gets them publicity like this SSF4 bet. Plus why am I going to throw down $100 on Ryan Hart to win when most Street Fighter players are shady individuals who would steal from their mothers and he could just go put down 3 grand on the other asshole to win at 2/1 odds and lose on purpose.
Plus gambling and Street Fighter have been around for ages with money matches and with me and Dave betting $1 that we can beat Jimmy in straight rounds or without having half of our energy taken from us, and that's really all we need.
GAMBLING TIP: IF GOUKIJONES IS PLAYING, ALWAYS BET AGAINST HIM.

Lots of Nintendo related artwork coming soon from Bottleneck Gallery out of Brooklyn, NY, and a new Mario Kart print
Bottleneck Gallery based out of Brooklyn, NY is doing a show called 3NES, where each artist they've contacted for the show must do a piece related to each of of Nintendo's "Big 3": Mario, Zelda, and/or Metroid.
The show opens this Friday, September 6th, and here is a preview of some of the artwork that's been unveiled so far
Here's the full set from Lerma:
Ricardo Chucky's 3
There will be two online preview sales of prints from the show this Thursday: 10-10:45 am PST, and 5-5:45 pm PST. Any available artwork after the preview and actual show opening will be available at the site on Saturday.
Lastly, today saw the release of the first that I know of Mario Kart art print. Available at Nakatomi, Inc. The print is called Drifting Into Darkness and is by Russ Moore
Here's the regular:
New Mortal Kombat movie trailer
I think we can all agree that the original Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation were both robbed of Best Picture Oscars the years they were released, respectively. Well it looks like someone (I can't find out exactly who other than fight choreographer I've never heard of is responsible for the fights) is looking to get revenge on the Academy by moving forward with a new movie.
This looks very slick, and they've come up with some (however asinine) storylines to explain the fighters like Reptile and Baraka which I personally am fine with because the guys who originally wrote the plots and devised the characters for the Mortal Kombat video games were in all likelihood retarded/very unintelligent and would have probably written Reptile's story such that a young boy in the 1950s got lost in a swamp and was raised by crocodiles and then mated with one which birthed the murderous killer Ninja who finishes his victims off by ripping off his mask from 30 feet away to display his long tongue range (Sonya Blade was impressed)
Not sure how I feel about Johnny Cage being offed already as I really wanted to see him uppercut three heads off someone in this.
THE BIG QUESTION? PG-13 OR R. amiright?
Anyway it's nice to see Spawn again and any of the other has-beens that will be in this. Ralph Macchio for Cyrax!
My favorite matches from the Super Street Figther IV Finals from EVO 2010.
Alright so here are my top 5 matches from the EVO 2010 Super Street Fighter IV tournament finals (Top 8)
A lot of this is from memory, so God only knows how accurate any of it is because I dont feel like rewatching them all.
5) Infiltration vs Ricky Ortiz (Losers Bracket Final)

Top 5 Anticipated 3DS games - contest entry
I havent owned a handheld gaming system since the Game Boy. That being said, here's my entry
1) High School Musical 3DS - With an option to eliminate Zac Efron and all the other male characters in the show from the game. Stop Vanessa Hudgen's nude pics from leaking! Help Ashley Tisdale get fitted into her cheerleading uniform! (Hellcats crossover FTW). Explore lesbian themes! Do homework. Sing songs. Mature audiences only.
PS. For jimmy there will be an option to eliminate the female characters.
2) 5 Hour Energy 3DS - Oh no! You only have 2 hours to get ready for work AND read the newspaper. Find the 5 Hour Energy hidden in your cupboard in order to relax. Find the 4 Loko instead and play a bonus game of "Where did I hide the murdered hooker?" Rating: Everyone
3) Guy with a gun on a decimated planet attacked by Hostiles 3DS part 8 - just to get this over with because you know it's coming by the 5th month of the 3DS being out. Rating: People who don't get tired of the same thing
4) Ke$ha presents - I am the Dance Commander and I Command You to Dance 3DS - self explanatory. The future of music presents the future of gaming. Unicorns, lasers, Jack Daniels, HOT FUCKING TUNES. Must buy
5) Final Fantasy Presents the Sleep Chronicles Online 3DS - For those nights you have insomnia

So I already knew who one of my two characters was months ago. The moment I heard they were in the game, I knew.
Poison. Duh. SAY NO TO PROP 8! Plus Jimmy will be ultra distracted during gameplay.
The 2nd member was a process.
1. Eliminate all Tekken characters because Tekken is awful.
2. Eliminate all ShotokoKONNONWNONK characters because ..... well, there's no explanation needed really.
3. Eliminate Rufus because Rufus along with Hakan are the worst designed Street Fighter characters in history. I'd rather play Gil
Balrog (Not a fan of his moves typically) Cammy (I like the Poison/Cammy combo with the whole Interpol teams up with NYC Tranny Police Department, but in the end, just not really a fan of playing Cammy in previous games) Chun-Li (never been a fan of her moveset) Cody (I can't have a former lover of Poison's on her team. I need new love) Dhalsim (if you've ever seen me play Dhalsim, this is self explanatory)
Guile (Hm, maybe, though I tend to like to play characters that are a little against the grain. )
Guy (I'm assuming Cody shared with Guy. Too much history. Though teaming someone named GUY with Poison is kinda hilarious) Hugo (360 Characters are a no go for me. if a move requires more than 180 degrees, I'm fucked. I'M GETTING TOO OLD FOR THIS SHIT) Ibuki (too combo dependent. I can't do any combo that is longer than 2 hits) Juri (too many moves. I need characters who have 3-4 moves max. Not ones where you hold a button then jump around and do other things then let go of a button. WUT)
Bison (there's something appealing about this teamup. Potential)
Rolento (like the sound of this)
Vega (nah, havent enjoyed playing him since SFII Championship. Dont expect that to change now) Zangief (see Hugo)
So final 4 are Abel, Guile, Bison, and Rolento.
I'll probably end up trying all of these as a combo. Abel since I have some more recent familiarity with using his character (poorly, to boot).
BUT ULTIMATELY, THE TEAM I WOULD LIKE TO PLAY, AND WILL TRY TO "MASTER" FIRST.
POISON AND ROLENTO.
The kinkiness that will ensue......

The amazing 3A toys are releasing 2 Halo toys next Wednesday (actually Tuesday evening in the US)
Ashley Wood and his company 3A toys continue their toy domination with 2 new toys based on the Halo franchise.
First up is the HALO Spartan MKV Commando, which is a www.bambalandstore.com exclusive
Next is the HALO Commander Carter Spartan III, which will be available at www.bambalandstore.com and then later at select toy retailers
Both figures stand 13.5" tall and feature: * Fiber-optic illuminated helmet and armor * Magnetized shoulder shields and rear pouch that all weapons can be attached to * Rubberized suit over a fully articulated body with complete outer armor attachments * Fully articulated fingers * Weapons: M392DMR (designated marksman rifle), M9 HE-DP APG Frag Grenade (x2), Combat Knife with sheath
They will be $200 each USD, and go on sale Wednesday in Hong Kong time which usually translates to Tuesday evening for those of us in the US.
A new weekly installment. You demanded it, you got it. Post it note art on a weekly basis
So my previous post it note art installments apparently are very popular here on this site. They've resulted in numerous job offers and a few marriage proposals (NO MEANS NO JIMMY)
Anyhow, under threat of death I reluctantly present the post it note art of the week.
Only problem? I hate videogames and have no idea what to draw that doesn't involve a toilet and something halo related being shat or pissed on.
Post what you want me to draw below and if it's interesting enough maybe I'll give it a go. Then if you send me 59 cents via paypal I will send you the original.
EDIT, I thought of something
