Even film director Nolan could not have planned this better! Hot Toys will be releasing a 1/6-scaled "Alfred Pennyworth", together with a "Batman Armory"! And while we've seen a few Armoury sets being produced and put on sales in the recent past, bundling in "Alfred" would indeed make it a better impertus for collectors to pick up, whereas a single Alfred might not necessarily move - even tho the headsculpt seen here is amazing!
Check out the product pics here, along with the official sales text from HT, and do check in with your fav retailers for availability and pricing!
PRESS: "The Dark Knight: Batman Armory with Alfred Pennyworth. As a hero with many superior tech and equipment, Batman uses a specialized armory to store all of his state-of-the-art weaponries and gadgets. Now Hot Toys is proud to present this Batman Armory from The Dark Knight together in a set with the firstly launched Alfred Pennyworth collectible figure.
The 1/6th scale Batman Armory is highly detailed and meticulously crafted based on its appearance in The Dark Knight featuring a Batman collectible figure with patented Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS) and four newly sculpted interchangeable expressions, and a large collection of finely sculpted weapons and accessories.
The movie-accurate Alfred Pennyworth collectible is specially crafted based on the image of the renowned Academy Award winner, Sir Michael Caine, as Alfred Pennyworth in the film highlighting the newly developed head sculpt and tailored costume with remarkable details."
"2014 is the year of the "Prince"....story, full reveal, limited edition runs, storybook illustrated by Dave Crosland, and details soon.....we promise it will be well worth the wait.....DONT SLEEP!"Teased Palmetto SilentStage on his Facebook, along with this image! Before he was "King", he was a "Prince" - Angry Woebot's Panda King get a "prequel" and looks to be quite the aggressive warrior bear, before his current incarnation of a regal and calm king with a crown! Can't wait to see more!
AlphaMax's 1/8 scale Fate/EXTRA CCC Saber Bride is currently available for pre-order.
Although I haven't exactly been a fan of the Saber Bride design, I'm seeing the appeal when the zipper is down as seen with the AlphaMax version. It still seems like an unbelievably kooky design but there's some definite fetish fuel going on here.
Full info after the jump.

Spent "Boxing Day" (aka "Day After Christmas") at China Square Central meeting up and chatting with visiting artist Ario (and sharing our love for 1/6th), and toy-hunting with Joshua, David and Paulus of The Brotherhood of Toys … and as usual my attempts at spreading the addiction and desire of toys to others, inevitably leads to me needing a "fix" as well, and my favorite vinyl / art toy "crack dealer" aka Mike at Ozzo Collection, provided me with a quick fix indeed!
And while my finances are limited, here is a look at what I scored:
Omen Blink from coarse = is quite fun to have, with a singular articulated neck, this adorable-ish owl is perhaps the only affordable coarse-product I have bought and paid for by myself.
"Luckily" the other 3 colorways were sold out by the time i snagged them from Mike's toy shelves, so I needn't spend more money I do not have on them! muahahaha
Truth be told, I utterly enjoy the MARVEL LABBITS series, and if I had the means, I would own the entire set! The design on these comicbook characters on a labbit form were pretty cool, and worked pretty well for this size, IMHO. Not a whole lot left at Ozzo tho, so snag them stat!
This is my second ever purchase of a Labbit, with Mishka's Keep Watch Labbit popping my Labbit-cherry LOL
Who could resist the shuriken on the Wee Ninja Android's head! Designed by Shawnimals for the Androids Artist Series 4, and easily one of my favs especially for it's playability - would could not like the removable claw-blades? … Am now thinking of adding on to it's personal ninja arsenal … hhhmmm ...
As much as I heart these Androids, one was all I could afford … *man-tear*
My sole "Dunny Evolved" purchase and piece features McBess' design - and frankly I would love to own more of his collectibles (Check out my review for Half-Mermaid). In the end, this piece was more for "collecting-sakes" rather than purely aesthetic reasons, I have to admit.

Diamond Previews magazine has unveiled Hasbro's upcoming Avengers Infinite Series line-up. Included in this assortment will be Grim Reaper, Heroic Age Iron Man, Captain America, Platinum Wasp, Platinum Hulk, and Platinum Hyperion. While there seems to be some confusion regarding the scale of this line (Print states 6-inch, however, these are really 3 3/4-inch), it was a misprint on Hasbro's part, and these will indeed be produced in the 3 3/4-inch scale. Plus, you can tell by their articulation and sculpts that it's the smaller scale figures. Feel free to discuss!

I just love to cross-stitch and always have a cross-stitch project half finished. Some of my projects are finished quickly while others seem to linger for months on end. My cross-stitch tree ornament is in the lingering category. I don't remember when I started my tree ornament. My guess is sometime last spring.
So, with the Christmas holidays looming I thought it was time to finish it.
The Dimensions Counted Cross Stitch, Tree Ornament Kit contained the presorted thread, 14 count plastic canvas, needle, and instructions. The pattern uses full counted cross-stitch and outline stitching for emphasis and depth.
The pattern came with starting, stitching, finishing and even cleaning instructions as well as samples of the various stitches required, and color coded keys (with code #'s, color names, and cross-stitch symbols) and a chart with color coded symbols. The colors and symbols on the keys and chart were easy to read and follow.
While I was very pleased with the end results of this design there are some things in the kit and in the instructions that can be improved upon.
As was the case with previous Dimensions kits the thread sorter was poorly designed. The embroidery threads were glued to two foam backed 2 3/4" by 1" strips of cardboard that had a picture of the color of the thread and it's number. In order to get to the threads you had to separate the foam back from the cardboard strip. Very quickly the threads separated from their section and then you no longer knew what the thread number was to tie to your symbols & legends. I had to punch a hole in the thread sorter cardboard strip just below the color of the thread & it's number and then insert the threads through the hole and tie them in a loose knot so my threads, colors, and numbers would stay together.
I also added the symbols to the strip to make reading the chart easier. To make things even easier for the user the color symbol should have been shown on the thread sorter strip of cardboard as well. That way you would only need to use the thread sorter strip of cardboard to follow your chart.
I had no problem cross-stitching the tree ornament and then cutting the plastic canvas close to the sides of the tree. I was pleased with the way the tree ornament came out but was disappointed that the finishing instructions only contained instructions for making the cord and nothing for finishing the back of the ornament. It's was such a cute ornament to leave the back unfinished with the cross-stitch threads showing didn't seem to me to be the right way to finish this ornament.
So, I decided to finish the back of my ornament with red felt. First I cut a piece of .25m DMC embroidery floss for the hanger and taped this to the back top of the ornament using double sided tape. Then I cut a square of red felt to fit the back of the ornament and taped it to the back of the ornament using double sided tape. Once I was satisfied that everything was holding I cut the red felt along the tree ornament edges.
It took me 15 hours to complete this ornament. Despite the problems I encountered with the thread sorter and the finishing of the back I was very happy with the way my Dimensions Counted Cross Stitch, Tree Ornament turned out.
