New Crazy Bricks Kickstarter Tuesday

Crazybricks has a new kickstater launching Tuesday October 13. The new set is Brick Buddies and features brick built animals. So far there are just some illustrations. 

This will be a blind bag series with two Brick buddies in each bag. Not sure how I feel about blind bag for a kickstarter set. I know it will be a quality product since it is Crazy Bricks. It’s just a long wait to get a fig I may not  like then have to again and hope I get the Watermelon cat. Plus it’s only been three month since the Dino Dudes campaign ended. My wallet needs a longer break. Don’t know about pricing yet, We’ll find out soon.

Day one supporters will get a Brick Buddies top hat.

Note: The campaign was suppose to state last week but there was a delay.

Once the campaign goes live I’ll post about it here

This is so cool. A fan made film using Kenner action figures. This film recreates The Empire Strikes Back using a story book record.

Black Panther comics free on Comixology and Others

Comixology has a huge library of free Black Panther comics on their site. There is no announcement on the site about it. But if you go to Comixology or reportedly, the Marvel app and search for Black Panther, the single issues are free. The big collections are not but you get the same stories in singles anyway. So search series then pick some to read.
This includes the 70’s series and more recent issues. I reading some vintage series now. When I finish the story arc, I’ll jump to the current era.


Free digital single issues also on The Marvel App and Amazon. The note here is you can get them on Amazon and read them on Comixolgy but not vise versa. Still available as of noon on Labor Day.

Also free is the Shuri limited series.

So do Here and catch up on Black Panther.
