BattleTribes King Kringle Figure

Spy Monkey Creations recently dropped their latest wave of BattleTribes figures. I'm usually good for at least one to add some variety to my collection and they did not disappoint with a holiday themed King Kringle.

Let's have a look at what's in Kringle's sack of goodies. In addition to what you see below, he actually does come with a red draw string bag, which I forgot to include.

You get a total of 4 different heads, 4 weapons, a belt, and a shell/shield. A lot (all?) of this stuff is new to this wave which is what keeps me getting new figures when they're released.

Figures can hold the shell as a shield or, with a simple peg swap, it becomes a shell that attaches to their back. I think it's much cooler this way!

This guy kind of has a goblin look to him. The non-human heads look weird on this body to me because the shorts are the same color as the body. I mean, obviously his skin is red but did he just happen to pick up a pair of shorts that match his skin color?

When the skin color doesn't match the outfit, it's easier for my brain to think the red is all clothing. I imagine this is the Viking legend version of Santa.

When I put Kringle along side my other figures, one of them happened to be sporting a demon head which led me to this.



Spy Monkey still has King Kringle in stock if you want to pick him up.

Merry Christmas, Krampus

There's a Krampus children's book currently on Kickstarter called Merry Christmas, Krampus.

Merry Christmas, Krampus is an independently published children’s book that tells the story of legendary Christmastime creature Krampus and how one child from Santa’s Naughty List teaches him that all “bad” children have some good in them.

Any children's book featuring Krampus would be fun but what makes this one a little more special is the way they're creating the images. They're actually building the characters and sets, then photographing them.

The folks creating this have worked for Jim Henson's Creature Shop, Disney Imagineering, and Disney Animation! There's still 22 days left for them to hit their funding goal and I'm really hoping they make it. I'd love to see the final product.

There's some open Early Bird pledge spots open where $30 will get you a copy so head over to their Kickstarter page and check it out.
