Fri. JULY 24: ROCK STEADY 32 FRIENEMIES BATTLE NYC
3-9pm. $20. All Ages. Hosted By: The Rock Steady Crew.
DJs: Crazy Legs, DJ Jazzy Jay, Skeme Richards and Charlie Rock.
Every B-boy and B-girl is on their own! No preset battles. In the early to mid 80's, crews were rolling thick and a lot of them were at peace. The only time they didn't get along was when it was time to battle in the club. No one was worried about hurting someone's feelings or concerned with battling their own friends, but rather battled with a fierce will to win. We were all "FRIENEMIES". 'Frienemies" is the place to battle that person that you chill with on a regular basis and show him/her that they're not as good as they brag about all the time. Winner receives an all expense paid trip to rep the U.S. at the UK B-Boy Championships.

HOT TOYS released images of their newest collectible figure in their M-ICON collection- Michael Jackson's "Thriller". Hot Toys is known for their work creating action figures of some of the most iconic characters in science fiction/fantasy films, celebrities and musicians. Their figures are extremely detailed in their facial appearance, clothing and accessories. The release of the "Thriller" version of Michael Jackson brings the iconic look and characterization of MJ made famous in the classic 1983 short film/music video. This is the second version of Michael Jackson from Hot Toys, the first being the "Billie Jean/History tour" version. The Michael Jackson - Thriller collectible features:
- Hot Toys’ slim version TrueType body, over 32 points of articulation, stands approximately 30 cm high
- 2 interchangeable heads – MJ head and Zombie head
- 2 sets of costumes ( original red jacket and pants & the zombie suit)
- 2 sets of white socks with black shoes
- Five (5) sets of interchangeable hands and one (1) additional posing right hand
- 12 inches figure stand with the classic Thriller title and Michael Jackson nameplate
The figure retails for $189 at this seller and may be hard to find at that price for long due to the demand for MJ collectibles since his death.
