NJCC Guest Announcement – Boss Fight Studio!

The New Jersey Collectors Convention is proud to announce that Boss Fight Studio will be attending the August 2nd, 2015 NJCC toy show! Boss Fight is comprised of several former Hasbro designers and a sculptor who all worked on fan-favorite action figure lines like Transformers, G.I. Joe, Star Wars and Marvel Universe.

What is Boss Fight Studio’s and Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S.?

Highly Articulated – We believe that action figures are meant to be played with. If it doesn’t move, then it’s a statue. That’s why Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. figures are designed with poseability as a priority. Our 4″ base figure features at least 17 points of articulation, all with an excellent range of motion.

Make sure to head out to the NJCC 2015 Summer Show and say hi to the team from Boss Fight Studio!

Happy Memorial Day, Cobra Island!

CobraIsland.com would like to wish you a very happy and healthy Memorial Day! Whether it’s at a barbecue, or on the couch with the kids…no matter what you do today, please remember to give thanks to the brave servicemen & women who have made it all possible. Today is a day to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that folks like you and I don’t have to.

“Winston Churchill said of those he knew in World War II they seemed to be the only young men who could laugh and fight at the same time. A great general in that war called them our secret weapon, “just the best darn kids in the world.” Each died for a cause he considered more important than his own life. Well, they didn’t volunteer to die; they volunteered to defend values for which men have always been willing to die if need be, the values which make up what we call civilization. And how they must have wished, in all the ugliness that war brings, that no other generation of young men to follow would have to undergo that same experience.

As we honor their memory today, let us pledge that their lives, their sacrifices, their valor shall be justified and remembered for as long as God gives life to this nation. And let us also pledge to do our utmost to carry out what must have been their wish: that no other generation of young men will every have to share their experiences and repeat their sacrifice.”

Defending Our Myths and Heroes!

Here’s something that I thought was pretty cool at first glance, but when I read their “Our Story” page, I knew this was something special that I had to share!  The site is called Defending Our Myths and Heroes, and they sell artwork based on our favorite shows and video games from childhood!

However, that’s not why I realized I had to share this page.  I’ll let the artist take it from here!

How We Got Started

In 2012 I became aware of four individuals who were diagnosed with different types of cancer.  All four of these gentlemen were professional firefighters, but more importantly they were friends.  I knew of a fund raising event that was being thrown in their honor.  I wanted to contribute, so I drew a picture of three Transformers who transformed into different pieces of fire apparatus and offered it in a silent auction.  The piece raised a significant amount of money for these gentlemen, so I decided to continue with these sorts of efforts.  In 2013 I started DMH (Defending Our Myths And Heroes) with my goal being to represent the beloved mythologies of my childhood authentically, and give back to our modern day heroes.  My promise is that no less than 10% of our profits will be donated to our modern day heroes.  In 2013 we donated to the NFFF (National Fallen Firefighters Foundations), in 2014 we donated to C.O.P.S. (Concerns Of Police Survivors), and we have yet to finalize the charity for 2015.
So if you want to support a great cause, check out their site!  You can find great art like the Cobra image above, Mortal Kombat:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:
Q0RDMzA1MDkzQ0U0RUNDRUVFRTY6YjJiMDVmNzNhN2MwMzk1YTg2NTcxZjNiZmVlMmEzNmM6Ojo6OjA=
and many more awesome characters from our childhood!
But wait there’s more!  Not only do they sell art prints!  They sell mugs and coasters, and blankets!
Tell me you wouldn’t love to sleep, safe and sound, knowing the Dinobots are there to protect you from monsters?!
