Today's deviation is Clamp Champ! Clamp Champ, the champion of the... clamp? No, not exactly. He's the heroic master of capture, though I don't think he's ever been able to capture a crowd. Ole' Clampy here was made towards the end of the line, and therefore, in my opinion suffers the overlooking of Masters of the Universe fans. When I was young, I overlooked him, and I believe it had to do with the fact that MOTU was dying down a little. Also, in that lineup for the series the Champ was in, was Ninjor. And if you are playing rock, paper, scissors with a toy lineup and you throw a ninja in, well, the ninja is basically the bomb. It's tough to compete with a ninja, unless you're a panda. Just saying. I never owned a Clamp Champ till I was in my thirties, and I'm glad I picked one up (apparently this character is rather hard to come by in really good shape with his clamping tool). Since then I have sought out the 200X NECA figurine statue and other things Clamp Champ. I've had no luck. All in all, I think this character often gets overlooked, and I think that is just downright "Sad Ninja Panda" master of taking away Clamp Champ's thunder. You can also see this sketch card here.
HEY EVERYBODY! DALLAS COMIC CON IS COMING UP QUICK! READ BELOW!
Now, I'm going to have a bunch of these sketch cards available at the Dallas Comic Con. I'll be selling them for $10. I am also opening commissions of sketch cards. They will also be $10 + shipping and handling which will be $6 in the continental United States of America. I'll have to get a quote for any territories outside of that. I will also open up my colored page line drawings for commissions. Same price as the sketch cards, but I'll have to check on the shipping (due to the difference in size). If you want to see what I mean by colored sheet drawing, go here. If you want a sketch card, send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Name your character and we will go from there.
The Convention will be May 19th-20th. It will be at the Irving Convention Center that is located at 500 W Las Colinas Blvd. , Irving, TX. Tickets for Saturday will be $25.00 for 11:00am to 7:00pm, and tickets for Sunday will be $20.00 for 11:00am to 4:00pm. If you happen to go to the Convention, stop by and say hi to Rob and I. Also, Rob just posted some info about what he will have at the table. You can check out what he has to say here.
