Into the Inferno: "Werner Herzog and volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer embark upon a global journey exploring some of the world’s most mythical volcanoes in North Korea, Ethiopia, Iceland and the Vanuatu Archipelago. Speaking with scientists and indigenous peoples alike, they seek to understand the complex and deeply rooted relationship between mankind and one of nature’s greatest wonders. Produced by Spring Films, Werner Herzog Film and Matter of Fact Media, Into the Inferno artfully blends reportage, history and philosophy into a riveting cinematic experience."
FUNKO PRESS: "What? You never saw a Pop! with a chainsaw hand before? The crew from Ash vs Evil Dead have been fighting the Deadites and are ready to join your collection! Collect Ash, Pablo, Kelly, and Ruby! Coming in November!"
Among the selection of collectible-goodness on display at their booth for the CICF Expo in Guangzhou, were television-themed characters in 1/6th-scale, from Hong Kong’s Threezero - including AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and “Breaking Bad”, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” Sandor Clegane "The Hound”, and “HANNIBAL” from NBC!
Scroll down for some snaps to gawk at, and a few words.
AMC’s “The Walking Dead” series continues with “Merle Dixon”, joining the previously released Rick Grimes, Michonne's Pet Zombies (Reviewed #onTOYSREVIL) in 1/6th-scale.
This particular license has been pretty slow to evolve and add to it’s ranks of characters, with the show currently in it’s 7th Season. I am sure fans are, and have been hankering for more tho…
HBO’s “Game of Thrones” has seen a wider range of 1/6th figures released before “Sandor "The Hound” Clegane” (the widest catalog thus far from Threezero) - starting with Tyrion Lannister, Eddard Stark, Jon Snow (w/ Ghost) and Jaime Lannister … I think it’s high time they released a FEMALE character figure, don’t you? :)
AMC’s “Breaking Bad” licensed releases continues forth with the latest “Heisenberg & Jesse Hazmat Suit Combo Set” featuring the intrepid duo in their “infamous” yellow hazmat suits (Blogged #onTOYSREVIL), adding to the already released ”Heisenberg” / Walter White and Jesse Pinkman individual 1/6 figures.
“Breaking Bad” aired thru 5 seasons, from 2008 to 2013, and it still has “legs” with collectibles releases such as these from Threezero.
“Dr. Hannibal Lecter” from HANNIBAL is their latest TV-themed release, with the figure currently available to pre-order here on www.threezerostore.com (for US$150) for an est. 2nd quarter 2017 delivery. I’ve never followed this series at all, so cannot stir up any excitement beyond these images LOL

One thing to note: All these properties are licensed products, and not bootlegged or paralleled hence the price point(s). Like Hot Toys does Hollywood feature films, Threezero does TV, anime, video game properties AND films! They are one of the more notable brands for premiere mid-to-high-end collectibles featuring articulated bodies and fabric clothing.
I have only had the chance to review and own one (two) of their products, and they are exquisite. Before delving into licensed 1/6th, Threezero had been known in the collectible toy community for their splendid “urban vinyls” since the early 2000s.
Threezero boss Kim Fung Wong is also one of the principles of ThreeA Toys, which may be a reason why tons of folks and collectors still mix their releases and brands up :p
You can stay connected to their via their Facebook / Twitter / Instagram!

DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 2: Out of Time | Extended Trailer & A Look At The Justice Society of America
“Time-travel” seems the “IT” thing on television now, with Season 2 of “DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW”, NBC’s “Timeless” and The CW’s “Frequency”? ... so okay, technically "Frequency" is “time’displaced” rather than “travel”, but whose counting? :p
Meanwhile, we get to see DC Comics’ “Justice Society of America” in the trailer above (to be seen in S2 Ep.2 tho), and as well here are still images to share (from comicbookmovie.com).
LUKE CAGE reimagined as a 90s sitcom thanks to Zach Ace (who made “Deadpool in Civil War” and “Avengers Full House”), with this video made entirely out of clips from the Netflix show Luke Cage and the song from the Family Matters intro song “As Days Go By”. Works for me!
MY TAKE: "“Evil” men hijack a time travel machine to go back in time (duh), and a new trio were cobbled up to go back in time to thwart evil-man-schemes - including a female historian, a Delta Force military man, and a “coder”. Things happen, questions are pondered, and the past changes the future."
Watching the first two episodes of NBC’s TIMELESS was pretty much “effortless”. I did not need to feel I had to bend my brains as much, pondering the consequences of time-travel paradox, and just let the show’s stories take me to the past, guilt-free, and enjoy my time spent watching the two episodes.
First episode focuses on the Hindenburg disaster, while Ep2 is about Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. I foresee a primarily Western past to be explored in this 7 (?) Episodes first season.
OFFICIAL PLOT: "When an experimental time machine is stolen by criminal mastermind Garcia Flynn, a team consisting of history professor Lucy Preston, her bodyguard Wyatt Logan, and engineer Rufus Carlin is sent back in time using a prototype machine to capture him. However, they soon realize that Flynn and his associates are plotting to rewrite American history, and that each of them has a connection to his plan." (Wiki)
The actors are pleasant and effective. The “true villains” seem clear cut, and the “show villains” are shown not to be the case they are made out to be. The characters are somewhat cliched but like I said, “effective” and allowing more room for grown and perhaps even changes, as the episodes go by. And I am liking the "subtle" story ion the time-changes, from whatever past they had came back from "rescuing", and the intrigue continues forth .. needing to know that notebook Flynn is carrying (which no doubt is written by the historian from the future haha).
This is neither a complaint nor commentary, but a basic impression of a series, which does not necessarily register on a “NEED TO VIEW” basis, but has turned out to be a viable series amidst the current slate of television series, and I look forward to catching more.
What I actually did appreciate (thus far), was that not a whole lot of time was spent “showing-off” the time machines - we were introduced to them, seen them in operation, and next times we know of their existence, is from the fluttering of papers (or being wighted down LOL)! Except for what would be consistent “entering the capsule” dressed in the episodes’ period past of story, this is an effective way of focusing the budget on the period settings instead, perhaps? Kudos!
