Singapore Toy Games and Comic Convention 2013 reveals their first headliner guests for this year's event on August 29th-to September 1st - with the announcement of Marvel Comics’ artist Adi Granov (@Adi_Granov) and KABUKI-creator David Mack (@davidmackkabuki)! And famed cosplayer Vampy Bit Me (@VampyBitme) is now officially announced to attend, along with Japan's DEVILROBOTS (@devilrobo) returning to Singapore again.
And looks like the festivities will be cranked up a notch with the inclusion of up-and-coming music producer DJ kz (livetune), and TAM - with his classical violin - "performing uniquely refreshing renditions of musical tunes from genres like Anime and Game".

They are a family of four x 3 inch tall mechanical robots designed by Square One and sculpted and produced by Double Haunt.

A trio of releases coming up via the Mai Hiro online store @ shop.maihiro.net on June 28th, starting with the 'Mr. Smiling Eiffel Tower' print from the Mr. Smiling by Susan Lee event (hosted by Redefine Gallery in Orlando, FL) event last month, now available online. Nakanari is also releasing another Doodle set:
"…this time on a batch of GID Munny figures - with some of his more popular characters like Samurai Spiki. Nakanari says he's gonna try to release Doodles each month.

Don't miss out this month's releases; and stay up on the latest news from Mai Hiro by checking out www.facebook.com/maihiro, instagram.com/maihiroteam and Twitter @maihiroteam."
Shawn Wigs shares with us his latest custom series, with the delicious looking "Oreo Dunny Series" - featuring customized 3-inch tall vinyl Dunnys modified with resin cast Oreo faces. Get ready to bite into (figuratively speaking, of course) them, when the set is released Tuesday, June 18th, 2013 through the new We Are Not Toys collective website!
Priced at US$65, there will be only 20 pieces made in this blind box series: Original (3/4), Vanilla (1/10), Mint (1/10), and Bitten (1/20).

Based on the animated series produced by Nerd Corps Entertainment and currently airing on Disney XD, the expansion will see action figures, vehicles, stretchy slug flyers, [...]
[Update] Kotobukiya has posted the official gallery on its Facebook page. They have been added to the gallery below.
It's been a while since we last saw Psylocke in the Marvel Bishoujo line. Back in 2010, it was just the Bishoujo line and nothing but Marvel. Now in 2013, Shunya is getting back to the roots of the line with a new version of Psylocke. The announcement was made originally at Wondercon about a new version of the psychic ninja in her X-Force outfit, but now we know she looks.
The line has come a long way since her original release and those enhancements have been brought to X-Force Psylocke. Translucent hair tips and being upscaled to 1/7 is a start. Her outfit has been changed to match the black protocol of X-Force. Detail has been noted with her legs showing they're belonging to an actual human being, fleshing out of the straps. I do have to note though that I can't imagine being a female ninja assassin in that outfit, as I would no longer have a functioning left ankle.
The reveal of Marvel Bishoujo X-Force Psylocke was leaked out by Big Bad Toy Store. According to them, she'll be released this December for US$64.99. Confirmation from Kotobukiya, along with more images, should be appearing in the future. For now, you can make a pre-order and wish you had ankles like hers.
[Business Wire] - Hasbro, Inc. is set to arrive at the 2013 International Licensing Expo in Las Vegas on June 18 to showcase its global Franchise Brands, including TRANSFORMERS, NERF, MY LITTLE PONY, LITTLEST PET SHOP, PLAY-DOH, MAGIC: THE GATHERING and MONOPOLY.
Guardian’s costume is a deceptively simple one, consisting basically in a skin-tight attire with a cowl, with a color scheme patterned after the Canadian flag. The only original piece of sculpting is the head, which is well detailed, although a little bit on the generic side of things.
Tesselate will be releasing a one-off resin piece - Z7200 - on Monday June 17th 2013 at 8PM UK Time (that's today at 3PM ET). The nearly 6" tall figure will be available to purchase for £70.00 (around $110). Background: Z7200 is a founding member of the ED-IT DJ partnership alongside B5100. Not often seen [...]
Monday Morning Box Art
Monday mornings suck. So here’s some box art to make it better. We’re going to start off this weekly post with one of my favorite box arts of all time - MUSHA Aleste, a Japan-only Genesis shoot ‘em up made by Compile and Toaplan.
Debt backing Toys ‘R’ Us has drifted lower in the secondary markets, though it has not been particularly active, since the privately held retailer on Friday reported a drop in sales and adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter.
OK, rounding out today's celebration of "Bat-Creativity" I knew I had to give props to an amazing Graphic Artist I came across recently named Tony Fleecs. This guy created these fake-parody book covers of some "Batman stories" Pulp Novels.
I totally love Vintage Paperbacks like this and this guy did an amazing job on making them look so real. Apparently, he is also one of the main Artists working on the new MY LITTLE PONY Comic Books, and you can see more of his wonderful artwork by clicking RIGHT HERE!
If you have never made one of these models before then here's the deal. You go to the official website, download a PDF file, print it out on your computer, cut it out, then bend/fold and tape until you have your own cool toy to display. It's actually very fun to make, but I gotta warn you, these paper toys are extremely addictive... so please, be careful, ha!
Here's the LINK to the website where you can download it.
When Kotobukiya first announced that Jonouchi Katsuya would be to be joining Yami Yugi (reviewed) and Seto Kaiba (reviewed) in the ArtFX J line, I was pretty ecstatic. As a fan of the Yu-Gi-Oh! series, I felt the line was a bit incomplete without him. Thankfully, this is no longer the case since the energetic duelist has finally been released, and ready for a thorough review. But is the fan favorite, Jonouchi Katsuya, worth adding to your collection?

Background The Topobots are the latest series of wood toys from Geared For Imagination’s Topozoo line. While we’ve seen various animals and dinosaurs in the past, this series is made up of four special robots: Herobot, Piratebot, Rockbot, and Vampbot. As can probably be surmised from their names, each wooden 3-D toy puzzle combines a [...]
Diamond Select Toys has released a comprehensive preview of their upcoming black & white Lost in Space Minimates set which will be sold at SDCC next month. This marks the first announced release for Diamond Select Toys' Lost in Space Minimates series, which was first announced at Toy Fair earlier this year and later appeared at C2E2.
This first pack will include Dr. Zachary Smith and the robot B-9. Included in the set are two alternate heads for Dr. Smith (one seems to feature a scowling face and the other looks afraid, which well-encompasses the character's mood swings) and a laser pistol.
Dr. Smith and the robot are easily the two most iconic characters from the show which makes them natural choices for a first set. The robot looks fantastic in Minimate form and one can't help but adore the various facial expressions for Dr. Smith.
The set will be available at the Diamond Select Toys booth, #2607, at a price of $10. Be sure to check out the gallery for images of the packaging, figure photos, and the concept artwork.
