If you can’t get enough Star Wars, and really….who can, then here is some additional items  to make you the coolest kid on the block and the envy of everyone in your office.  Yep, we are talking about Star Wars USB Flash Drives by Mimoco.

Since 2005, Boston-based design house Mimoco has fused the art of contemporary characters with the functionality of personal data storage devices, making its name known in both the pop-culture driven Art Toy underground and the savvy high-tech ‘tronic world. With a mission to bring style and soul to consumer electronics, Mimoco is renowned for their flagship collection of MIMOBOT® designer USB flash drives and their brand new line of mimoPowerTube® backup battery chargers.

The distinctive character-based MIMOBOT line offers from 8GB to 128GB of flash memory storage and transport for all your most precious music, docs, pics and other personal data bits and bytes.

The MIMOBOT collection is available in several co-branded ranges of iconic franchises, has functioned as a canvas for indie pop-artists, and has originated from the minds of our fans through design challenges.

It’s extremely difficult to say which one is our favorite but Admiral Ackbar is really close to taking the title.  Then again we are die-hard Boba Fett fans and who can resist Lando Calrissian?

I’m sure that we will get a whole new batch to collect when the new film comes out this December.  Oh, and if Star Wars isn’t your thing, shame on you, but they also offer outstanding offerings from Adventure Time, Hello Kitty, South Park, Star Trek, DC Comics, and more.

Get Your First Taste Of The CW’s “DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow”

“In the future, none of you are heroes, you’re legends….”

We don’t want to spoil it for you so just watch the trailer and then we will talk about it.

There, now we feel comfortable giving our two cents. Personally we love it and can’t wait to watch it. They are such an odd assembly of characters that we can’t wait to see how they all fit together. We REALLY can’t wait to learn more about WHITE Canary as it looks as if she was revived in Ra’s al Ghul’s healing waters.  What is the story with Hawkgirl and how the heck do Captain Cold and Heat Wave (I really don’t like those names) fit in? The immortal Vandal Savage is their nemesis?!

All Rights Reserved.

Here is the synopsis from the CW:  When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?

Screen Shot 2015-05-14 at 2.13.49 PM

DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW stars Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”); Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” “Superman Returns”); Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”); Caity Lotz (“Arrow”); Ciarra Renee (“Pippin”); Franz Drameh (“Edge of Tomorrow”); with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”); and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”). Based on the characters from DC Comics, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”), Marc Guggenheim (“Arrow,” “Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”).

Famp Art Releases “Trollhunter” by Gabriel Picolo & Rolls Out A New Game Plan For 2015

Famp Art has been quiet this year as they have been realigning themselves but now they are back at it with an officially licensed print for “Trollhunter” and an all-new game plan for their company. Here is what they had to say about their new endeavors.

Screen Shot 2015-05-14 at 10.17.46 AM

One of our goals when we started the business was to help introduce amazing new artists to this scene and give them an opportunity to tackle a licensed property. Regardless if they’re popular or not, we wanted to help them find ways to reach a new audience, in addition to having a supportive outlet where they could sell their art, art based on both original ideas and some pop culture ones. 

We will be representing a handful of very select artists, either very regularly or exclusively, to promote them as well as release and promote their art. Soon you’ll see two new sections on our website called Artists and The Gallery. The first will show a list of the artists that we will be working with regularly or that we’ll be exclusively representing. Artists will be added once we’ve introduced them via our newsletter, blog, etc. The Gallery section will be for other passion projects of ours that generally won’t be pop culture related. We have two major series in the works that we’re super excited about and news on each will be revealed in time.

Trollhunter poster by Gabriel Picolo.
18″x24″ screen print.
Hand numbered. Timed-Edition.
Printed by Diamond Hill Screen Printing

AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE HERE

The first artist to join their ranks is Brazilian, Gabriel Picolo.  Here is what Gabriel had to say about his first screen print release.  “Working on the Trollhunter poster project was a unique experience for me. That’s because, until now, it was the first time I watched a movie thinking about the illustration I’d draw afterwards. It changes how you see the whole thing. As I watched the movie I was seeking for interesting visual features that could help me to create the poster. I would like to thank Alex and FAMP Art for inviting me to join this project!”

This is a timed release so if you want one, simply click the link above before May 24th.  You can follow FAMP ART on their OFFICIAL WEBSITE, TWITTER, and FACEBOOK to stay up to date on new releases and new artists being added to their roster.

To learn more about Gabriel Picolo you can check out his FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, and TUMBLR pages.  One thing to be on the lookout for is that Gabriel always hides a “black kitty” in every image he does.  Can you find the one in TROLLHUNTER?

Dark Hall Mansion & Nicolas Delort Go To Skull Island With An Incredible New Print: “King Kong”

Dark Hall Mansion has just revealed their next collaborative effort with one of our favorite artists, Nicolas Delort and this time it’s an officially licensed print for the 1933 Warner Brothers classic, “KING KONG.”

(Original 1933 French Poster)

We love this take on such an iconic character.  Skull Island always intrigued me as a kid and this print by Nicolas absolutely captures that sense of “awe” I had about Kong’s original home.  Looking at the print you can almost hear the cascading waterfalls, the screech of the pterodactyl’s and Kong’s mighty roar.

KING KONG-STD

Standard edition: Black & White

Edition of 280 on foil

$70

KING KONG-VARIANT

Variant Edition: Sepia

Edition of 70 on foil

$100

KING KONG-LAVENDER

Canvas Edition:

Black and White version: Edition of 10 – $250

Lavendar version: Edition of 10 – $250

Here is the official press release from DHM :

Dark Hall Mansion is proud to reveal its latest entry in the DHM Seminal Film Series of limited edition print releases, 1933’s classic, “King Kong,” by artist Nicolas Delort on sale next Friday, May 15th!

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Warner Bros. Entertainment Consumer Products, has invited leading artist, Nicolas Delort, to take on one of the most influential and groundbreaking of cinema’s early classics. Informed by Willis O’Brien’s legendary stop-motion animation, “King Kong” smashed records on opening at Radio City Music Hall in 1933 and has never looked back since. Its impact shaping generations of filmmakers is undeniable, yet it is Kong’s pathos that forever registers in the hearts of fans. Far from some simple brute, the power and tenderness Kong so eloquently expresses plays out in pioneering and arresting close-ups that still resonate with viewers to this day, Kong’s ending as heartbreaking as it is unforgettable.

Nicolas Delort’s expressed vision for his piece was, from the start, to tell Kong’s tale, organically, to see him in his own domain, the world Kong inhabits. Taking the viewer right to Skull Island, Nicolas’ piece is as much about this mysterious world as it is about Kong himself, and nowhere is this more evocative than in his striking rendering of a cavernous skull and its weeping waterfalls. Nicolas’ “King Kong” print beautifully ties back, mid, and foreground, the native’s massive gates at rear, Kong’s engaged prehistoric battle, and finally, Carl Denham’s camera quietly piercing the jungle, placing the viewer right with the intrepid film crew as it first comes upon the majestic ape. As always, Nicolas brings his striking detail work to bear and compliment his composition and story, while elegant finishing touches, such as his title treatment, herald what’s to come in New York and further showcases his skills.

In a very special surprise for fans, ALL Standard and Variant Nicolas Delort “King Kong” editions will be screen printed on foil, inclusive of metallic ink highlights. There will be a Standard B&W 5-color (2 colors being metallic) screen printed foil edition, and a Variant Sepia-toned 5-color (2 colors being metallic) screen printed foil edition, both measuring 20″ x 30,” and all editions hand-numbered. There will also be two select, giclee printed canvas editions, one with Nicolas’ unique and moody lavender color scheme, the other based on Nicolas’ original B&W vision.

We spoke to Nicolas about the project, hit the jump below to see what he had to say and take a look at some of his incredible W.I.P. images.
