Patrick mentioned; "These will be available soon, people can contact Minty also directly for buying them."

    And the "Winner" has to be the Zombie Trooper!

    There are three styles of depiction of (Caucasian) women, which I adore, namely ladies by Phil Noto, Jeremiah Ketner, and Ken Keirns, whose work is the focus of this particular blog-post.

Do contact the gallery for availability and prices. I really miss seen Ken's ladies, I admit, so this is a swell treat, eve if they are seen online, for me :)

    From Onorio Depiro and Scott Brimley comes STRONGBOT, where he will be made from a 3D-printer (the obvious evolution of toys to come, methinks), featuring a very clean and crisp robot (unlike Onorio's previous weathered'bots), as sculpted by Scott. Here are some snaps of the render, and words to share:
    "The piece is the second in the series, the first being "chunkybot", which is 3D printed then painted/weathered by myself. This new robot, known as "Strong-bot", will be 3" tall and will be printed in white strong plastic. Scott has done a beautiful sculpt using a computer software and the images attached are the almost final turnarounds (small details and adjustments are still needed)." -mentioned Onorio.

    The piece is due for production soon, and the price will follow and the quantity is never ending due to the production process. Stay tuned for updates on TOYSREVIL! Meanwhile, folks can check out Onorio's new Tumblr @ - filled with robot-goodness (oh how I heart robots lol) - or contact him directly

    WHAT: I asked "Art Toy Customizers" on the blog and on Facebook to share with us their TOP TEN customs done in 2013. This is what one artist shared…

    Today's TOP 10 CUSTOMS comes from Lance Lamont aka MR.MUNK, who also shares with us; "…in 2014 I hope to work on more projects, painting the figures I enjoy, and develop an original piece at some point. I'm very thankful for the people who have supported my work. This year will be fun". You can check out more of his work on his Artist Facebook page! And I am highly intrigued to see an original piece from the mind of Mr.Munk :)

    WHAT-IS: "#throwbacktoythursday is a weekly lookback at toys and play of times past. It could be from my personal childhood in the 70s to my own collectibles collection from a decade back. Enjoy the toy-memories, folks!"

    (My thanks to Josh Coldiron of NoriToy for the suggestion!)

    One of my fondest childhood "play" memory, was building a make-shift "cave" in the middle of the living room, circa late 70s, using my red-n-black Chinese woolly blanket, covered-wrapped over stacked dining room chairs, and I would crawl in, with flashlights a brandishing!

    The semi-darkened space was populated by "Vampires", and a ragtag group of Playmobil adventurers battled them, amidst flashlights and using Battlestar Galactica-styled "Colonial Vipers", made from cardboard toilet-roll cores.

    I've only ever "built" the playset once in my life (thus far), and enjoyed myself immensely. Packing up the cave and toys after play, was another thing altogether LOL

    I loved PLAYMOBILS. They had offered a level of play in line with their form and design, which on hindsight, was a strange circumstance, given their stylist depictions of humanoids, as opposed to anatomically "correct" action figures (I had some early Kenner Star Wars figures that doubled up as "vampires" here).

    Playmobils was pretty prevalent here in Singapore during the 70s, it seems. And while I have not factual statistics to back up my claim, I can only offer et another memory of walking down a toy-aisle in Great World City (before the "new" mall-reboot), and of wanting a box of Playmobil Spanish soldiers. I whined to dad I wanted it, of course to a stern "NO" … then I turned my pleading innocent eyes to Uncle Rodney, who helped take the box to the cashier, and only whipped it out at the last moment to pay, before my dad could reject him! *SCORE*

    Playmobils offered me a chance to "imagine" beyond something I could just simply whip-out, play and display, and it is a notion that had shaped and impacted how I view and interacted with "toys" through the years. Hence my fascination with 1/6-scaled articulated figures, no doubt. And of how I connect with certain "art toys" and how I can "play" with them, these days instagramming #toyselfies instead of crawling in built-up blanket-covered-caves, of course!

    Dug out a bevy of Playmobils from storage boxes not too long ago, finding the vampire-killing adventurers in varied state of dirt and grime, and realizing this was the first time I "customized" my toys, with stickers, and drawn elements on the toy-bodies, and mix-n-match accessories and even cut-out coats!

    Over thirty years later, I am still in the midst of all these "shenanigans", but with a slightly different shift in genre, make and materials, but not in "concept". It's interesting how our childhood play affects our adult life. And while I am not here to extol the virtues of children's toys, it interests me how what I used to play with, has affected my current view and value of toys, and play.

    Different people have different reasons for collecting, but perhaps the root of it all, might not be so different from each other, after all.
