FAN ART FRIDAY - Andreas Silva/Makinita

I love it when I come across a fellow Canadian that shares my same enthusiasm for horror and cartoons. Andreas Silva (aka Makinita) is one of those people and he is the artist of some of my favourite fan art. I spent almost an hour just going through all of the different illustrations he had on his deviantART page. Some of his cartoony renditions of popular horror characters are particularly funny. He has so much fan art, I had trouble picking some of my favourites. Be sure to check out the rest of his art by clicking here. Andreas has already been featured on my Toxic Avenger/Crusaders Fan Art posting from a few weeks ago.

SDCC 2010

This was the first year I was in California and almost attended the San Diego Comic Con. Unfortunately, tickets sold out months in advance and the few people I knew who had access to tickets ran out before I even had the chance to ask them. Thank god for the internet though! I've been following some of my favourite toy and comic websites and there have been some great announcements and figure previews at this years con. Below is a mixture of horror and cartoon figures, models, images, etc shown this year.

Masters of the Universe Classics
SDCC is the best place to see reveals of Mattel's latest line of Masters of the Universe figures. Each SDCC they announce a whole slew of new figures to be released. This year had some amazing figure reveals.

Eternian Royal Guards
Alternate Heads
Battle Armor Skeletor
Bow
Buzz-Off

Also announced this year was the first official vehicle (if you don't count Battle Cat) - the Battle Ram.

This year's SDCC also saw a major revival for Thundercats. Not one, but THREE companies revealed figures for the classic cartoon series.
