Banksy You Are An Acceptable Level Of Threat HC

Banksy You Are An Acceptable Level Of Threat HC
This is the single best collection of photographs of Banksy’s street work. Period. You Are An Acceptable Level of Threat concentrates on this singular artist’s iconic imagery, spanning the late ’90s up until the end of 2011. When Banksy started out painting, the political landscape was bleak. Fortunately now, it’s ten times worse. As Banksy’s cheerfully aggressive political work becomes ever more relevant, this comprehensive tome sets about presenting his art in the context of the era he was responding to.________________________________________________________

Game Of Thrones 2013 Wall Calendar
A Game of Thrones is HBO’s new Emmy-winning hit original television program based on George R. R. Martin’s best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series and set in a fictitious world reminiscent of medieval Europe in which magic exists and the seasons can last for many years. Robert Baratheon, King of Westeros, asks his old friend Eddard Stark to serve as his chief advisor, or ‘Hand of the King.’ Stark learns that more than one family is conspiring to take the throne. The Queen’s family, the Lannisters, may be hatching a plot. Across the sea, the last surviving members of the previously deposed ruling family, the Targaryens, are also scheming a return to power. In the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. Game of Thrones 2013 Wall Calendar features first-season images of one of the most celebrated casts on television, including Sean Bean, Lena Headly, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Kit Harrington, and Emilia Clarke.

Hawkeye Classic Avengers Fine Art Statue

Hawkeye Classic Avengers Fine Art Statue
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Created in 1964 by Stan Lee and artist Don Heck, Clint Barton was an orphan working in a carnival who learned archery to become a master marksman. After dabbling in crime he chose the path of righteousness and became a costumed superhero, working alongside the Avengers for years and gaining huge popularity among Marvel’s readers. Barton joins the original trio of Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man in his iconic original costume: HAWKEYE CLASSIC AVENGERS! You’ve seen the latest incarnation of Hawkeye in the Avengers film and now you can celebrate his classic look in this amazing new fine art statue. Wearing his traditional dark blue and purple costume, Hawkeye defends the Earth from the greatest threats with a smirk on his face and the Avengers to back him up. The master archer stands on a rocky outcropping, resting his right arm on his knee as he surveys the battlefield looking for his next target. The hero’s sculpt really captures the character from the features of his classic costume to the subtle details of his pose like Barton’s thumb testing the edge of his bladed arrow and the flowing movement of his cloth-like tabard. Every element of Hawkeye’s classic costume has been recreated from the skin-tight cowl with pointed mask and ‘H’ logo to the scale mail-like chest piece, bracelets, and retro cuffed boots. And while he holds his trusty bow and one arrow at the ready, look closely to see that the hero’s quiver is still fully stocked! As a special addition, Hawkeye’s base even includes the severed arm and head of Avenger’s foe Ultron, with an arrow sticking out of the robot’s eye for good measure. Classic Avengers Hawkeye stands 13 inches tall (1/6 scale). His rocky terrain base matches those on the other Classic Avengers, the previously released Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man so you can display them individually or as a team!
