It scares me to think about how much awesome stuff like this I missed out on before I joined Twitter.

 

Credit to Battle Armor Joe (@sharepointjoe) for tweeting this Instagram pic from blackmajor:

I did a little digging to try to nail down the original source, and found that our friend Rick Marshall had already blogged about the figures (a long time ago).

Doesn’t stop me from loving them, and Joe tweeting the pic last week just goes to show that at this point everyone in the world hasn’t seen them yet, and that needs to change.

Check out Marshall’s post for info about the creator and the site they first appeared on, and stay tuned to UnderScoopFire for continued coverage on 2 year old geek news!

I’ve seen these before and personally they are DREAM figures for me!! I would have to buy every single one of these if I could. I absolutely love that Soda Popinski.

Punch Out!! is such an epic game that I EVERYONE had back and played when the NES was hoppin. I had Punch Out stickers all over my NES as a matter of fact. Not only do I have fond memories of the NES game but I also remember playing the arcade version with the greenish mesh, see thru Lil Mac character.

King Hippo needs a crown and Don Flemenco needs a rose. lol
