Swiped from FLABSLAB's Facebook is this sweet snap of KAWS bootlegs - both the Grey KAWS Companion: Passing Through, and a Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket, but in a similar stance as "Passing Thru"! Way to innovate products, "bootleggers"!
And while I'd not necessarily endorsing bootleggery of products (ironically conceptually bootlegged off somebody else's IP in the first place *snicker*) … some bootlegs are more interesting than others, I reckon … ;p
As for finding this, I have absolutely no idea where tho :p
It's been a long while since we had Shin Tanaka on this blog (totally my bad…), and it is with a real treat we present this downloadable paper craft, with thanks for his Jan.9th birthday!
Shin is also one of the 25 participating artist in the Paper Robots, which you can purchase online via Amazon and/or www.ullmann-publishing.com.
WHAT: I asked a select few folks how their 2013 was, and what should folks expect from them in 2014, and this is what they shared with TOYSREVIL…
TOYSREVIL-SAYS: Make no mistake, I personally heart Max Toy Co products, and having a chance to meet Mark himself at STGCC in 2012 was one of the highlights for me! As I go gather my-fanboy-self together, here is what mark had to share with us…
MARK NAGATA: Oh 2013 was a great year for Max Toys. I had some many events here and in Japan plus new toy releases that I lost track of what I actually did But, I have to say that because of the various Cat figures we make we've been able to expand our Fan base as well … the power of Kitties, you know!
MARK NAGATA: Well I keep saying I will be doing less and trying to take it easier but no such luck. My guy in Japan, Monster Boogie Yo Miyamoto, and I have many more new soft vinyl figures planned throughout 2014. Several shows for Japan in the works plus something with FOE Gallery in June. Also have some cool projects with up and coming artists … actually these types of projects excite me the most. I love introducing new talent to the scene.
NOTE: all Images in this post were provided by Mark, because he rocks! 'nuff said.
In a world where Andrea is still alive and a much better character than the TV version, where Rick has one hand, and Daryl doesn’t exist; this is the comic version of The Walking Dead. After two series of figures, McFarlane is coming out with series 3 from the comic world. There will be four figures included in this series: Rick, Andrea, Dwight, and Punk Rock Zombie.
Rick is designed after the cover art for issue #60. This figure will come with a bandaged stump on his right arm, hatchet, revolver, shotgun and rifle. Andrea is designed after the cover at for issue #62. She will come in her white tank top and jeans, and come with her scoped rifle, pistol, and knife.
Dwight is a new character, and one of Negan’s top lieutenants. Designed after the cover art for issue #119, this figure will have his bandaged and burned face, and come with a crossbow and hook to attach to his belt. The last figure is of course a zombie, and this one is taken from issue #30.
The Punk Rock Zombie will have a mohawk and punk rock clothing like a spiked collar and combat boots. Also keeping with the punk rock theme, this figure will come with a guitar. So far we only have the concept art for these figures, but I hope the actual figures look as great as these do. Coming out in June, each figure will be US14.99 or US$54.99 for all four of them.
After seeing a slew of custom-figures and artwork teasers, news comes of two exclusive production exclusives to drop during TRIGGER II @ Stranger Factory, opening Jan 10.2014!
Up top is FERG's PLAYGE DOCTOR SKELVE "White" version, in an edition of 66 (available to reserve in person only).

No prices listed as yet, nor online availability mentioned. Stay tuned for updates, or stake out both gentlemen's Twitters @fergbag and @brandtpeters!
ALSO NOTE: "Due to the large amount of collectors attending in person (tonight) sales will be handled via lottery to ensure that everyone has a chance to pick up a piece or more starting at 6 PM." (Via)

Worldscreen have posted an itnerview with Hasbro Studios' Stephen Davis in which he reveals some news about the next Transformers TV show. What a lot of us were worried about is looking to be the case that Hasbro will launch another Rescue Bots type show aimed at a much younger audience. That means we're less likely to see the Transformers back in a biggger bolder way, but more of a candy coated good feeling mode that is less than meets the eye. Read the details below.
Robotkindom have posted new images for their Phlogeus figure that is a G1 character homage to Rampage of the Predacons team faction that combine to form Predaking. Get a look at the figure test shot in full color displaying the robot mode in below for the full preview now.
Thanks to our sponosr Robotkingdom who have posted some new images of the TFC Toys Prometheus Gumball Not Streetwise action figure. Get a look at the robot and alternate modes of this figure that will be released this month.

TFormers.com's Featured Toy of the Month is Robot Masters Optimus Primal! Not quite Deluxe-sized and thus in scale with your Generations Beast Wars figures, Optimus Primal loses most of the gimmicks of the original Ultra-class toy while keeping- or gaining -articulation.
That’s what Devon Franklin, Senior Vice President of Production for Columbia Tristar, said on Instagram (link). Any Masters of the Universe fans out there!?

We start production this year! #mastersoftheuniverse #heman […]

I received the Daniel Tiger Treehouse playset free to facilitate this review, any opinions are my own. Last year I professed my undying love to Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, an animated show inspired by Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood on PBS Kids that features Daniel Tiger and his friends O the Owl, Katerina Kittycat, Prince Wednesday, and Miss […]
Last year we threw our first big birthday party! I never got around to writing about the party or all of the details that went into it but as we are starting to plan for this years big birthday party I had a few party planning tips I wanted to share. I started by deciding… [read more]
A battle over a Toys For Tots sign has now prompted a man to fight for the mayor's seat in the city of Deltona.

It was a controversial issue that's still is not settled, said Storozuk, who ...
