Tom Hardy Cast as VENOM!!

No, this is not a fever dream - Tom Hardy, AKA Mad Max, AKA Bane, will be playing the slobbering villain/anti-hero in an upcoming solo film from Sony Studios to be released on October 5, 2018!!

Now as I see it, this film has two things going for it, and two potential strikes against it. The first, obviously being Tom Hardy's casting couldn't be more perfect (at the very least, it should get the taste of "Topher" out of our mouths), and the second being that Ruben Fleischer, best known for his work on Zombieland, is set to direct.

The two strikes against it (and mind you, they are BIG strikes), are; it's a Sony (we-love-to-screw-up-Spiderman-movies-as-much-as-possible) Pictures production, and there are rumors that the film will NOT include Spider-Man. 

Luckily, Spider-Man had very little to do with the Venom storyline. WTF?!? How the Hell are they gonna make a Venom movie without Spidey?!? It's just, just, just so.... aww man, I'm getting a migraine. Or maybe a mini stroke. I don't know.

All I know is that No Spider-Man = No Venom = I ain't gonna be forking up $15 to see this latest Sony trainwreck. Oooo, maybe they'll give him cybernetic enhancements or morphing armor! SMDH...

The Ultimate In Terror...

FRESH GEAR ALERT! From the mini-series that scared my lil' 6 year-old ass shit-less, I give you "Mr. Barlow". Remember that floating vampire kid scratching on the window and asking to be let in? HOLY CRAP that was scary!! Check out the products here that will keep you hiding under your covers for weeks!


Hi gang! Another Spring is upon us; the leaves are coming back, the grass is green again, flowers are starting to bloom, and 3-D Monster is getting an overhaul! If you saw my last post, you will see that I've started a new line of merchandise called Crypto-Gear. Still keeping with the Monster theme, this line focuses on the supposed real monsters of Cryptozoology such as Bigfoot, The Yeti, Loch Ness Monster, and so-on and so-forth. While Crypto-Gear will be getting it's own retail website, I'll be using 3-D Monster and Red Bubble to promote both lines under the name of Crypto-Monster Gear, and you can view/like the Facebook page here.

Whereas before, 3-D Monster merchandise was relegated to only art prints, T-Shirts and decals, selling through Red Bubble allows me to greatly expand the product lines to include items such as; 

The money I make from this will initially go to buying more inventory so that I may set up at conventions, art walks, trade shows and that most coveted selling venue; RETAIL OUTLETS! Can you imagine - going into your favorite store and seeing these items on the shelves?!? 

Everyone has a goal and this is mine. I want to make this into a success, but I need your help; not just in buying my stuff (although I really, really hope that you do!), I need your input. What type of additional products would you like to see? What type of art? Where would be a good place to sell my stuff?

I still have a ton of art that hasn't been used, and I'll be making new stuff on a regular basis, so please bookmark the shop and check for new stuff. I'll also post new stuff here and on the Facebook page as well. I know I've all but stopped posting and updating the site, but working 12 hour days takes it's toll. I'm gonna try really hard to change that, and hopefully I can once again make this my full time gig. Thanks again for your support and for enjoying my nerdy little musings!

New Venture: Crypto-Gear!!

Hi guys, I've been on a long vacation cookin' up a new idea based on Cryptozoology creatures, and I've started a Kickstarter campaign for the first wave of 4 characters; Bigfoot, Nessie, The Yeti and Mothman. For those of you not familiar with Kickstarter, it's an all-or-nothing crowdfunding program, so that means if the goal isn't met, you aren't obligated to contribute, and if the goal is met, you get some really cool swag from yours truly!

The reason why I am doing a kickstarter campaign vs just selling online is simple; BULK DISCOUNT. I can't afford to buy a huge amount of inventory up front, and that means I am restricted to ONLY selling online and making it harder to grow the business. If I am successful, all of the money made will go right back into buying more inventory so that I can set up at conventions, art walks, retail outlets, etc. Right now, the merchandise is limited to T-Shirts, hats, patches and messenger bags, but I would like to expand into polo shirts, backpacks, drinkware, pins, keychains, toys and much, much more!

After I get Crypto-Gear up and rolling, I plan on taking the 3-D Monster brand to Kickstarter and doing the exact same thing! It's a little trickier with the 3-D Monster stuff because there are potential copyright issues with much of the art that need to be ironed out. It wasn't a big deal before when it was on a smaller scale, but I can't go to Target with an unlicensed Mechagodzilla design and ask them to carry it in their stores. The beauty of cryptids is that NO ONE owns the rights - it's all in the public domain!

So there you have it! Time to get those credit cards out and order some sweet, sweet gear! Unlike a lot of Kickstarter campaigns, I'm not going to charge $50 for a t-shirt or $10 for a damn sticker. My prices are the same retail prices that I plan on putting on the website once it's up. Thanks so much for your support!

What if Leonardo DiCaprio Didn't Nail That "Growing Pains" Audition?

Well, he might've ended up a little more like this. No, this isn't a refugee from a parallel Earth spit out by the Large Hadron Collider, it's an unidentified Russian government worker who is a dead ringer for the Titanic star. Well, a little rounder, paler, and not quite as well groomed. The line starts here, ladies!

New Poster for Suicide Squad!

While I'm still not sure that this flick isn't going to completely suck, I am quite certain that this new poster for the film is the bee's knees! I love seeing posters that aren't perfectly airbrushed scenes from the actual movie, and actually convey the feeling of the film. This one says it all; chaotic, violent and colorful. You can judge for yourself whether or not the movie lives up to the poster when it's hits theaters on August 5, 2016.

If You Enjoy Quality Time Travel...

Then this is for you! Based on Stephen King's incredibly riveting drenched-in-awesome-sauce; 11/22/63, the story follows a guy, who, by entering a magic closet, falls face-first into 1960. Of course, he quickly decides that it is his mission to stop Lee Harvey Oswald and save Kennedy! In my opinion, that would not stop the assassination because Oswald didn't deliver the fatal shot, or possibly any shot at all... you see, the fatal head shot was clearly... okay, okay; not the time or place. (Sigh); just watch the trailer...

Is it a Sketch or a Toy?

You might look at this and say; "SAY! This is a great Jim Lee Batman sketch!" But wait; you would only be half right. It is actually a Batman toy BASED on a Jim Lee sketch! BRILLIANT!

The figure is part of DC’s “Designer Series” figures, in which the artstyle of a particular DC artist is painstakingly recreated on a poseable action figure. In this particular model, Batman: Hush artist Jim Lee, takes that design ethos to its most incredible extreme!

For now, the figure will debut as a SDCC exclusive for $40, but will probably be everywhere shortly after.

This is What Crossbones Will Look Like in Captain America: Civil War

Marvel Nails it AGAIN! These pics taken on the set of Captain America 3: Civil War, gives us the first glimpses of Cap and The Falcon in action, as well as the film's antagonist; Crossbones! From Wikipedia; In the comics, Crossbones usually appears as a henchman of the Red Skull. He carried out the assassination of Captain America, although Sharon Carter, who was under hypnosis at the time, is believed to have fired the fatal shots.

How Cap hails a cab;

Sam Wilson, AKA The Falcon in action!

I'm really diggin' the costume design - I wonder what those gauntlets are for?
