Wunderland's Monkey Assassin is BACK, this time courtesy of Jonathan Dubose, with the WINTER CAMO MONKEY ASSASSIN pre-orderable here for US$30 (for a scheduled ship out by mid-February). Now under the banner/brand of "Paper + Plastick", the Winter Camo is limited to 50pcs.
I had totally missed out on the news of the release prior to Winter Camo, with the "Ghost of the Monkey Assassin" now listed as 'Sold Out' (additional images below from @DuBoseArt). Good to see the Assassin Back!
With "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" feature film swinging back into theaters May 2nd, Funko announces two product lines in anticipation: POP! Vinyls and Wacky Wobblers! Featuring Spider-Man and Electro (whose Wacky Wobbler form features glow-in-the-dark) based on their screen character design, so check in with your fav retailers for availability and pricing.
... Would be interesting to see if any other characters gets the Pop!-treatment tho... :)
I tried to like the television series "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", but most times it leaves me feeling quite empty and gagging for "more" (whatever "more" is…) … and not that"Skye" hasn't been eye-candy … but maybe the "Agent Coulson" Pop! Vinyl from Funko might prove more "interesting" and perhaps engage my attention more? … Now let's see a "Tahiti-Coulson" soon, yes?
No availability date mentioned for this single piece, so do check in with your fav retailers for dibs … would place nice alongside your Nick Fury, or Captain America Pop!s, no?
Now we NEED an "Agent Melinda May" Pop! too!
Sebastien Roux (aka Superdeux) has release a new run of exclusive Mood Palmer vinyl toys produced by the artist himself. The limited series features Mood Palmer in three colors: the Original Mood Palmer, Blue, or Magenta (each limited to 100 pieces). There are also a number of one-of-a-kind custom-painted pieces - limited to 100 signed […]
Seeing these snaps from @richpage of The LEGO Movie mini figures blind packs before I slept, left me gagging for some when I woke up next morning! (and while this is hardly "art toy", but folks who know of my current LEGO mini-figs obsession would understand MUAHAHAHAHA).
And thanks to the LEGO Movie Facebook-page (where I've ben hanging around waaaay too often these days;p), we get to see production images of the 16 piece minifigs to collect! (Pssst! There's also the LEGO MOVIE sets to be had, but they re waaaay off my collecting radar and ability, for now anyways LOL)
Mars Attacks! Hostile Martian Diorama Model Kit from Moebius Models This gruesome but entertaining diorama model kit by Moebius Models is based on the Topps trading card set in 1962. It depicts a horrific street scene where a Hostile Martian landed and killed a hapless victim. The packaging features an all-new painting by original Mars...
The post Mars Attacks! Hostile Martian Figure Diorama Model Kit appeared first on Toy Scene.
Love it or hate, The Big Bang Theory has become insanely popular in our culture. While a swarm of merchandise is out there. most is for the masses and not really toy collectors. Which is a bit ironic considering the amount of swag the gang owns. Funko is helping out there with it’s BBT Mystery […]
And while the "live action" Attack On Titan feature film might still take some time to reach our screens (the filming hasn't even started yet!), news comes of a television commercial, which might give a glimpse of how it may look like!
Anime News Network reports that a "Subaru Forester" commercial has been created in collaboration with the film, with the finished product debuting this week - specifically on Friday, for the Kinyōbi Road Show.
"In the commercial, a Forester sports utility vehicle "skillfully dodges" the attacking Titans. The 30-second commercial costs several tens of millions of yen (several hundred thousand U.S. dollars)."
"Shinji Higuchi, the 48-year-old director of the live-action Attack on Titan film and The Floating Castle (Nobō no Shiro), also worked on the commercial. The commercial features three Titan giants, including one regular Titan and one female Titan played by stunt people and enhanced with computer graphics. It took four hours to apply the female Titan's makeup.
In addition, the commercial filmed a model of a colossal Titan's upper body. The model was about two meters (about six feet) tall and required seven people to operate." (Reported www.animenewsnetwork.com.)
I purchased this set to go on top of a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse birthday cake. They are the perfect size, and my grandson will be able to have them to play with after the party. -- By Cheryl L. Kolojeski
Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Figurine Deluxe Figure Set - My grandson is 2 and loves mickey mouse he knows all their names. Sure helps with his imagination. Thanks a lot. -- By melanie smith
Thanks for the nice photos “Dragon-Ninja-Finn!” Since these do not have the names on the card and the photos, it looks like these will get an international release. The US ones will of course have a Target sticker that reads ONLY AT TARGET and presumably the name of the character. Unfortunately, “neon” does not mean […]
Toys“R”Us recently announced that its “Great Trade-In” event has resulted in the removal of more than one million pieces of used and potentially unsafe cribs, car seats and more from homes, garages and attics nationwide since the program’s inception in 2009.

Popped by the SOLIDARITY21 event at The Substation - now renamed "The Solidarity Movement" - one sunny Sunday afternoon near the end of 2013, and sat in for the Artist Talk, and managed to grab some snaps (before the eventual downpour) and even helped myself to a wiener, and made some friends with folks! So I reckon it was a good Sunday indeed!
In anticipation of the January 25th Indonesia-leg of The SOLDIDARITY MOVEMENT happening at Gardu House Artspace and Gallery Shop, permit me to step back in time to December 2013, and share with you folks some snaps of the finished murals (and more WIPs posted HERE on my Facebook), with the side-alley completed by the visiting Indonesia crew (video below), while the back of The Substation had the RSCLS + SG crew up doing their "urban street art magic". Love that folks call it "murals" now rather than the negative connotation of "grafitti" LOL
The Artist Talk was an eye/ear opener for me personally. I consider myself to be a "tourist" in the scene, and having known some artists personally as friends, might not mean I know the ins-and-outs of the culture itself, which in Singapore and certainly in (South East) Asia, is indeed an interesting premise - as ZERO had mentioned - as "we" have appropriated the art-form from the West, and am now practicing it in this part of the world, with mixed origins of the visuals depicted, but bolstered by the rich heritage and history of our forefathers and myths, which in turn helps create a new layer of enriched depth, to an otherwise 2-dimensional eye-candy on the surface.
And it is not often you have an opportunity to hear direct from the street artists themselves, who instead use their nicks in public. And most importantly be able to SEE who they are, versus the perception of the past where individuals might be shrouded in secrecy, for fear of law enforcement reprisals, perhaps?
I personally think it is awesome that folks are choosing to be "identified" and take responsibility for their work, IMHO. Not that anyone was not in the first place, but respect to those who choose to "walk in the light", as it were.
"Legitimacy" lies not in the condoning of the act, rather than acknowledging the fact that the works being seen belongs to them.
And it was interesting to be "schooled", and to find out more about the artists' genesis and inspirations. In my humblest of opinions, we need MORE sessions and talks like this - or rather for more folks to attend these sessions - to get the interested public, and yes "tourists", to understand the scene and urban art-form better, to perhaps help folks "appreciate" it, rather than just recognizing it for being a "unlawful act".
Another aspect to the event, were painted canvases - featuring the work of SG X INDON pr piece, they were actually on display hung up on the walls from the steps leading up to the 2nd floor of the "class rooms" right next to the exhibition hall and theatre. Nice job, this "pop up" concept.
I am grateful that events such as this exists in Singapore, not merely for eye-candy purposes, but most importantly to enrich and enhance the "urban arts" scene, regardless within the confines of a white walled gallery, or at the mercy of the outdoor elements.
