If you’ve been following all things Atomic Robo, you’ve known that there have been hints and fuzzy photos that indicated an Atomic Robo statue was on the way.Â Now it’s official, as Brian Wegener sent word that the units are shipping right now!
These are pretty small statues, standing just under 5-inches high.Â Only 250 are being made, and since I just bought two of them, there are now at most 248 remaining.
Tech specs, and a picture gallery, after the jump!

We’re getting a late start this year, but better late than never – It’s the 2009 Major Spoilers Costume Contest!Â We want you to help us celebrate the upcoming Halloween holiday by having you â€“ yes you â€“ send us pictures of your bad self dressed up as your favorite comic book hero (or villain or side-kick, you get the idea). The best costume will not only be hailed as the Grand Prize Winner in Major Spoilersâ€™ Costume Contest youâ€™ll also win your choice of a superhero wall graphic from Fat Head (www.fathead.com).
We’ve got a couple of these on the walls of the Major Spoilers HQ, and they turn a boring room into a “super” one.
Hereâ€™s what you have to do:
Send three to four pictures (different poses/angles) of yourself in your favorite superhero costume (plus one sans costume) to us by October 25, 2008. Make sure you include your name, address, and the character you are supposed to be. The Major Spoilers crew, will narrow the list to five contestants (oh lord, let us have more than five entries), and readers will then vote on their favorite. The winner will then be announced October 31st.
Send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org
Last year, we had a plethora of entrants. Letâ€™s make this year even better than the last!Â Get your entries in early!
Guess what arrived at Stately Spoiler Manor today?
I wonder what it could be?

Another busy week at Major Spoilers HQ, but the weekend, did give us a chance to reflect on the things that came to pass.
What is in store for us this week?Â We can’t wait to find out.
Last week, we told you about the Profiles in History auction where you can spend your hard earned cash to own a piece of Hollywood memorabilia.Â Digging around the World Web Internets like we always do, lead us to discover another auction coming up in January that is auctioning off a ton of Battlestar Galactia props.
What looks good on this list? In addition to detailed set plans and sketches, Tricia Helfer’s red dress is sure to get someone’s interest.Â You’re going to have to spend between $10,000 and $12,000 to get it, and it doesn’t come with Tricia Helfer.Â The one I want?Â The full size Cylon Raider, made of metal, foam, and wood, that measures 29 feet by 18.6 feet by 4.8 feet.Â Whoever pays the $40,000 for this is going to need a warehouse to store this thing.Â One day, when Major Spoilers makes a huge profit, and Major Spoilers HQ buys its own building, we’ll get one of these for the lobby.
The auction takes place on Saturday, January 17, 2009 and Sunday, January 18, 2009 at the Pasadena Convention Center.Â If you can’t afford, check out preview day, which is open to the public.
NOTE:Â If anyone goes to this, let me know, we want lots of pictures!

Oh boy, did we get a lot of people entering the second annual Major Spoilers Costume Contest.Â There were over 50 entries from 20 entrants (yes, some people entered multiple times).Â Personally, I think all those who entered the contest deserve kudos for taking the time to make their costume and sending it out for the world to see.Â You can tell some of the entrants spent a great deal of time on their costumes, and really get into their work.
Without further ado, take the jump to see all the entrants for this year’s contest.
