Street Fighter x Tekken Launch Party

Yesterday was the Street Fighter X Tekken launch party, at the Majestic Hall in downtown Los Angeles. We were fortunate enough to obtain VIP passes for this closed-door event, and didn’t have to wait in the gigantic line that wrapped around the building. It was a blast! Open bar (for the VIPs), free energy drinks, and booth babes- what more could a gamer ask for? We had the chance to mingle with some of Capcom’s higher ups, as well as witness a lot of crazy combos and beat downs by expert gamers! All in all, it was a great way to spend a Thursday night. Even Asura made a cameo appearance and was quite a hit with the ladies…

February: Zombie Awareness Month

In our sole discretion, and due to the upcoming debut of Part 2 Season 2 of “The Walking Dead” on AMC, we have declared February the Zombie Awareness Month. Normally for events like this the respected authorities would ask you to run some preparedness drills, or check your emergency water supply, or something else remotely responsible; But that’s not us. Really, when the Zombies come, they will do all the work for us, washing over the throngs of humanity like a cleansing baby-wipe of divine forgiveness with their gnashing teeth and grasping hands… All we humans need do is enjoy the show and try not to get eaten before that know-it-all Mr. Jenner from across the street. (He thinks his overblown holiday light display is so special? Well, so do the Zombies. Flock to the blinkey lights, my pets!)

So it’s Zombie Awareness Month for February 2012. What do you, the consumer, get out of this holiday? Online Deals on Zombie Swag! Zombies and Toys, the one-stop-shop for all your Zombie related news and goodness, and the SOTA Toys Online Store are offering 25% off all Zombie Related Bobble Budds merchandise.

Bobble Budds make an appearance at the Soul Calibur V pre-launch party

Tuesday Jan 24th was the Soul Calibur V pre-launch party, and we were dead set on attending. Hosted at the 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco, there was plenty of fun to be had! The first 100 entrants received a SUPER EXCLUSIVE MITSURUGI BOBBLE BUDD, complete with katana! We’ve managed to capture a few pictures of this super-rare Bobble in his natural habitat. There won’t be any more of these in the US, but luckily fans in Europe and Australia have the opportunity to get him when they order the Soul Calibur V Collector’s Edition from these fine retailers:
