Hide your eyes from that blinding Blue Light-Special of Justice, known as the Tick! Yes, Shocker Toys has once again brought the Hero of Heroes into our homes once more in action figure from. He has recently been released in the 2nd series of Indie Spotlight Comic Book Heroes figures, and we managed to snag the man himself AND his Mucus-made clone (an Idle Hands Blog-Exclusive) during our trip to Toy Fair. Are you guys ready for a review?! Hell yes, you are! First, let’s meet the arch-enemies:

The Tick is the metaphor-spewing brainchild of Ben Edlund and is the main character in a series of comic books, animated, and live action TV series. He protects The City and all its inhabitants from evil forces of all kinds. His thirst for justice is unquenchable and his hunger to defeat evil is best served with his intimidating battle cry of “SPOOOOONNNN!”

Mucus Tick, on the other hand, is made of snot. Of course, as we all know, boogers are inherently evil and so is this doppelganger. Aliens created this monstrosity from the Tick’s old tissues. Hey, don’t get any wise ideas! These tissues were used by the Tick to blow his nose while under the attack of a nefarious cold! Anyway, Mucus Tick is nigh-unstoppable thanks to his gelatinous shape-changing abilities along with all of the Tick’s strength!


Today your Daily Geeker will be busy trying to sneak in last-minute goodness in an attempt to balance out her coal ratio and optimize presents-receivage from Santa -- but to keep you in good holiday cheer, here are is a gallery of some comic book covers from the season!



With that incredible war-cry, The Tick bounds across the rooftops of The City and into battle! From the despicable Chairface to the decidedly evil El Seed, The Tick defeats them all with his heaping helpings of swift, blue, justice!

Bed Edlund’s greatest creation has been seen by the world in many, many forms. The Tick has graced comic books, an animated series (for which he is best known), and even a sadly shortlived live-action television series. All of these inevitably produced merchandise from t-shirts to an action figure line based off the animated incarnations of The Tick and his supporting cast. Now, the guys at Shocker Toys are releasing the pinnacle of Tick-related doodads with their own Tick action figure. The Tick is part of Shocker Toys’ newest wave of Indie Spotlight action figures, and doesn’t come alone. Nope, Shocker has seen fit to give The Tick his own archenemy in the guise of Mucus Tick, his snot-born doppleganger! Both Tick figures are in the 6” scale and feature an extra head; so, you can make your invincible crime-fighter look either slap-happy or enraged. Super articulation rules the day here, with each figure sporting multiple points of movement. Shocker Toys has steadily been upping their production quality and these figures look to keep that trend going. Read More...
