Do you want to be awestruck? Then head on over to Cholo Ayuyao's Flickr to see his newest show, Ethni:City, an extravaganza of stunning fashion design for 16" dolls. Each of the 10 fashions demonstrates the artist's skill in embellishment, construction and use of multiple fabrics. All come together as wearable art for dolls. I am sure there are many of us who would love to have one or more of Cholo's creations. Offers are being taken.

To celebrate an eventful year, Hasbro Inc. and Play-Doh have created 10 sculptures out of Play-Doh compound as part of A Year in Play-Doh Moments. Some of the sculptures include the Boston Red Sox’s big World Series win—and unique players’ beards—this past October, the new foodie phenomenon cronuts, baby George joining the royal family, and [...]
Vanessa Ramirez created a few festive monsters for her online shop, and they’ll be available today at 10 am PST. Each hand crafted original sculpture made from Magic Sculpt and bad behavior. Use coupon code HOLIDAY20 for 20% off purchases … Continue reading →
Not to be outdone by Vertex and their offering, a GK circle by the name of MadHands has shown off their rendition of you companion fairy from Dragon's Crown in time for Treasure Festa in Ariake 10, which occurs just before Christmas (seriously, the event is held on the 23rd...)!
The kit is 1/1 scale and takes many of its cues from how Tiki appears in the Tavern, where you prepare your team for adventures. Of course, in the game, I'm pretty sure that Tiki is still clothed and decidedly more... drunk. Nevertheless, if you find her in your drinks cup, you're not going to be getting it back anytime soon!
No doubt, Tiki will probably also make an appearance in Wonder Festival early next year but for budding modellers who can't wait, you have a week to make arrangements to try and purchase this playful kit. And if you're not a modeller, you can always hope that companies like Ques Q and Embrace Japan will pick her up for a general PVC release at a later date...

Christmas will soon be upon us, so what better time to start giving stuff away? Yes, it's time for a new photo contest!
The theme this time out will be Best of Friends. We want to see your figures hanging out with each other, spending some quality time. Naturally, two figures is the obvious way to go here, but don't let that restrain you - we'll accept pictures of figures with pets or even people, as long as it's a great shot. Be imaginative and creative. If it's unexpected or makes us laugh, that's extra points!
If you're interested in entering, then you can comment on this post with your photo or a link to your photos. Alternatively, post over in the Cblogs - we'd love to see how you went about taking your pictures. You're only allowed to enter once per person, so bring your A-game. This contest is open for readers worldwide, but please note if you're outside the United Kingdom then we'd nicely ask you to cover the cost of shipping the prize.
We've got the perfect prize for the competition too, with Alter's version of everyone's favourite yaoi couple best buddies Waver Velvet and Rider (review), from Fate/Zero, up for grabs. If you want them on your shelf, you've got until Monday 23rd December to get those entries in. Good luck!
Guillow’s model airplane kits are still beloved by those who enjoy the simple beauty of building, and then flying, a balsa wood toy plane. Guillow will showcase six new miniModels in the company’s 4500 series at the upcoming American International Toy Fair. While Guillow’s traditional toy gliders can be put together in minutes, these miniModels [...]
There are only a few more SUCK HEAD customs available at the SuckStore. Designed and produced by Bob Conge (Plaseebo), the figure features a new type motion activated color-changing LED unit as his head beneath the clear baby nursing nipple. The led unit is activated by simply moving the carded figure back and forth and […]
Everything seems bigger when you’re a kid. Rooms, yards, playground equipment—it all just seemed so much larger back then. Revisiting childhood places and beloved toys of yesteryear can often be as amusing as it is perplexing, when making the comparison between how you perceived the same thing as a child versus now as an adult. [...]
This time of year it seems like there are a lot of lists going around. TO DO lists of everything that needs to get done to prepare a nice holiday for family and friends, and if you’re really organized a list of things to get squared away before welcoming in 2014. Then of course there… [read more]

An amazing thing happened the other day. Gavin and I were making some quick holiday cookies and when we were finished we were admiring our “break and bake” abilities. He then said to me, “Mom these cookies look so good, hang on, I’ll go get my camera.” Before I knew it he had his Playskool […]
Following hot on the heels of the recent announcement that 6 inch action figures would be made by Mezco Toyz, Pop Culture Shock Toys and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products have announced a new partnership to produce even more products based on FX’s hit-TV series Sons of Anarchy. Pop Culture Shock’s deal encompasses sixth scale Sons […]

Bet you didn't see this one coming: Kaiyodo's newest addition to their line of Revoltech vehicles will be The Bat from The Dark Knight Rises, the third film in Nolan's Batman trilogy. Considering the movie was released on DVD and Bluray over a year ago, I'd say they missed the mark by a little bit.
"The Bat" is Nolan's take on the Batwing, Batman's personal plane that appeared in the Burton films. As with the case of the Batmobile, Nolan opted for a more "modern" vehicle with military applications that served the function of the other vehicle while looking nothing like the conventional version. Frankly, I'm surprised that even Nolan's Batman looks like Batman...
The Revoltech The Bat is shown here in an unpainted form and, to be perfectly candid, I believe this was the first time I've even heard about it but Big Bad Toy Store already has a pre-order for the figure. BBTS, of course, has something of a reputation for opening pre-orders before products are even announced as the site previously listed the Revoltech Genobreaker (using the promo artwork for the Revoltech Liger) and breaking news for many Transformers Masterpiece figures.
While the Bat is a pretty cool vehicle, I'm not sure whether it really works within the confines of the line. At the same time, it's not completely surprising (other than it coming out now) given that Kaiyodo previously released a Revoltech Tumbler Batmobile. BBTS lists the Bat as being 5.75-inches long and alleges that it features an opening canopy that can accommodate a tiny Batman. They've listed a US$50 pre-order.

The Yellow Dino's new figure - Dino Boy - is a spin on the Yellow Dino character - a human with a cute monster suit. Pre-orders for the 6"tall figure are open through December 24th 2013. There will be two colorways available. The Yellow version will be limited to 30 pieces and sell for $85.00. […]
