Have you always wanted a super-articulated Mario action figure? Tamashii’s Facebook page has a teaser that may interest you. And don’t forget, the Figma Link is available again (BBTS, Amazon)
Erick Scarecrow has released another wave of customs - this time it's the LVL9999 Honey Wing Wasabi Dunny. The 3" tall figures come with clear wings and spears. They can currently be purchased from the ESC-Toy Shop for $40.00.
Thanks to our sponsor TFSource who has posted new images from Uranos Toy Garden of the amazing third party Revolver project. Get a look at the figure that pays homage to the G1 Roadbuster character with extended detailing and articulation. See the robot and alternate modes images as well as comparison shots with the original Roadbuster toy and more. No details on pricing or a release date yet.
We have details on the most talked about product placement for a Chinese company in the Transformers 4: Age Of Extinction movie. The the already well promoted Trumpchi E-jet electric hybrid car from Guangzhou Vehicle Group Co Ltd (GAC). It is not sure what role the vehicle will take in the movie. Be it one of the robots or just something we see as just a car remains to be seen. But there are hopes the appearence will give the China made vehicle branding exposure with people around the world.
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…
DAN WILLETT: 2013 was a tough year, finances were a constant juggling act as we steadily expanded our team and resources.
Our new infrastructure will hopefully allow us to some pretty interesting projects but we had to grind our way through!
It was great to finally meet a whole bunch of people at NYCC including Joe Merrill, Monster Worship, Kaiju Andy, Chad, Grizli Atom, Toy Viking, the Mishka crew, Frank Kozik, Bwana Spoons and Miles from Muntiki (who's work is incredible!)
Oh...and of course...the beautiful Skinner!!
Project wise, working with The Diarticulators,Jeff Lamm, Pete Fowler, Eric So, Seto Ping, Ryan Lee, Pete McKee, Tado, Mark James, Toby HK, Triclops and the legendary Skinner (plus a few I cannot mention!) has been very humbling. These guys are true professionals and extremely supportive.
DAN WILLETT: Unbox seem to be tied up with a huge amount of OEM work this year so our releases under the Unbox name will be sparse but hopefully memorable!
Project wise,we are not quite ready to talk about our future releases yet but we will continue our strategy of releasing licensed and non licensed toys throughout 2014.
There will also be an announcement that should raise a few eyebrows in a few weeks or so! We would also like to thank all the collectors, bloggers and supporters that make the business all worthwhile.

MN001 is an officially licensed, non-transforming SD action figure of G1 Optimus Prime produced by Kids Logic as a collector's item for adult fans. As you'd expect of a figure in the super-deformed style, the sculpt for MN001 Optimus is pretty stylized. You might think that it would follow the cartoon as a design model, but it seems more like the original Masterpiece Optimus Prime may have been the visual inspiration. Continue reading
