Wonder Festival 2012 [Winter] is a little over a week away and more and more companies are releasing information on their exclusive goods. Kit maker Amie-Grand doesn't look to be bringing much of anything new, focusing once again on their 1/8 scale poly resin kits from Fresh Pretty Cure.
That doesn't mean they do not have anything new up their sleeve. Debuting at the event will be the lovely Eas along with the returning kits from Treasure Festa in Ariake 6 of Cure Passion, Cure Pine, Cure Peach, Cure Berry, Space Miki-tan. Not from Fresh Pretty Cure will be Bakemonogatari's Suruga Kanbaru. Amie-Grand will also have some kits from Amie-Taishou of Cure Moonlight from HeartCatch PreCure! and the debuting Princess of the Crystal from Mawaru Penguindrum.
Each kit will be sold at the event from ¥9,000 to ¥10,000 and will be sold in limited quantities. I'm not a big fan of Amie-Grand's quality so I do wonder if these constantly returning kits are always leftover stock or if they do make more for each event. There are talented folks out there so I'm sure they can do wonders to make these kits better looking.
[UPDATE] Pictures of Mawaru Penguindrum's Princess of the Crystal added.

A Little Bit On The Horse Heart Side: With the Game of Thrones DVDs and Blu-Rays set to come out March 6, THR has a sneak peek of the behind the scenes content. We find out that the horse heart that Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen scarfed down for multiple takes was pretty much a giant gummy bear (gummy horse hearts make great Valentine’s gifts). There’s a word to describe someone like Clarke: keeper.
Sometimes, a brand is so big that they have lots and lots of different toy manufacturers doing their characters. Case in point, Nickelodeon. How many on the 2012 New York Toy Fair overview can you spot that you know? Better question yet, how many of these are theme songs are burned on to your brain...
OK, I know the next major Film Villians in the next Batman movie, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, is gonna be Bane and Catwoman! But I thought it would be fun to pay tribute to the character known as TWO-FACE (Also, Harvey Dent ). So, here are some wacky Wallpaper Backgrounds you will hopefully enjoy, ha!
The first one is a scene from the recent BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY Video Game. This version of the character looked really good & was a great enemy to fight. Next up is an image from an older Graphic Novel. This is from the "DARK VICTORY" comic book storyline. It's got the Joker in there too so that's cool.
Then the last one is my favorite. This is a very detailed photo of the HOT TOYS "Harvey Dent/Two-Face" Figure from their DARK KNIGHT MOVIE Toy Line.
Does Target start putting up the Easter section right after Valentine’s Day (the 14th) even though Easter is 7 weeks after? But I guess you want 7 weeks of excitement for these Mattel Disney Pixar CARS 2 Easter egg CARS? Right? They should arrive with the Micro Drifters? And yes, the Easter eggs accompanying each [...]

We had a small cold front move into Texas last night, but it’s still nice enough to get outside and play. Aaron already has a new bike picked out for the spring and summer. The kid won’t stop growing, so he’s outgrown his old bike! I’m really looking forward to some warmer weather and theRead More

Two new starter sets from LEGO DUPLO introduce children to the exciting world of bricks.
Looks like some TFC Targetroids third party action figures may be making the rounds as some Toy Show Exclusives that will be Limited 500 pieces. Look for these figures to be selling at an MSRP of $39.95. I really hope that is the pricing for a whole set of figures. Shown are many of the figures we saw previously with some that look to be repaints including an Ultra Magnus, Nemesis Prime, and a few of the Seekers including homages to Starscream, Thundercracker and Skywarp. If that is the whole set show, the

What else can I say? This applies to all of favorite people. “You’re My Favorite Work of Art” print from Love Sugar, $30. It seems especially apropos to hang in my little girl’s room. I did create her, after all.

The newest addition to the Rivet Wars family (spotlighted previously) is the impressive-looking Stug. The quadruped tank has had its first molds made and is currently being produced by Rivet Wars creator Ted Terranova, and so far, it's looking pretty impressive. Some of the detailing looks pretty good, as well, especially with details like the little Stug driver and his little moustache and pickelhaube (the proper name for those pointy helmets).
Expect to see the Stug in the Rivet Wars shop sometime in the next 2 to 3 weeks. Would you consider picking one of these little tanks with legs up?
[UPDATE: That was quick: it's in the Rivet Wars shop now for US$28. Have at it!]
I will not lie up front. I am a horrible artist. Awful. Always have been and I think I always will be. Though I can be creative in my job in different ways and I have other special talents where I’m more athletic in nature, I do think some people are just not blessed with [...]
