Supposedly ’Cute’ Take Of Evangelion Figure Looks Creepy As Hell

Funko is the name in cute-tifying characters, so is Chris Uminga’s take. Uminga’s iterations of superheroes may look ‘creepy’ but they are pale in comparison with the newly announced Shiny EVA-01 Parfom Evangelion Figure. It is new, shiny metallic variant joining the “Parfom” line, which is a highly posable and cute re-imagining of Evangelion. Well, it does not look exactly cute, does it? I mean, come on. Just look at it. It looks like it is ready to tear up anyone. Continue reading Supposedly ’Cute’ Take Of Evangelion Figure Looks Creepy As Hell

Chris Uminga DC Artists Alley Vinyl Figures Made DC Heroes Cool Again

Chris Uminga is an artist whose idea of popular superheroes and villains is very different. If you ask me, I would say Uminga’s drawing of iconic characters sit somewhere between the irrational cuteness of Funko and that of the original, but with a tint of creepiness. Think of Uminga’s iteration of characters as Teen Titan, but with a little villainy in them. And that, my friends, is what make them look so super cool. Perhaps even cooler than the originals.

NECA Honors Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro With His Very Own Action Figure

Usually, fictional characters get to be immortalized as action figures, but today, Oscar-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is getting his very own. Guillermo del Toro may not have directed a lot movies compared to other A-list directors, but each and every film he produced, directed and/or wrote was not only a hit, but has attained somewhat of a cult status.
