Each month, Kaiyodo puts out a new super-articulated toy for its Yamaguchi series, usually based on a giant robot. This month’s giant robot is Eva Unit 04 from the Rebuild of Evangelion movie series. And for the two following months, you can pick up Full Metal Alchemist figures. Hit the link for more info and pics for each.
If you’ve been collecting Revoltech’s Eva figures, you’re probably going to have to rent a storage unit pretty soon. This Unit 04 figure comes with a rifle, prog knife, umbilical cord, and spear of Longinus. Don’t poke your eye out with that spear. Next month you can pick up this figure of Edward from Full Metal Alchemist. It comes with three interchangeable faces and several neat-o plasma attachments. Even the signature coat is posable. April will continue the Full Metal Alchemist theme with Alphonse Elrich. This one’s intense. Not only can this guy balance on one foot in a kick-you-jaw-off pose, but he also comes with a light up base. And for that detailed touch, the eyes can be moved independently. Check back each month for Albotas’ Monthly Revoltech Report.

OK, The title for this post is kinda crazy but these pics are too, you'll see! First up is an extremely cool BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Movie-Themed FOOD TRUCK! This was spotted by our friends at SUPERHERO HYPE during the 2012 TOY FAIR in New York City! ( Click on it for a super-large photo )
Next, is a "Google Earth" image of a real-life BATMAN Swimming Pool spotted in Hinsdale, IL, just outside of Chicago ( Thanks Jackie! ).
Then, we have THE DARTH KNIGHT!! A great mash-up of 2 cool movies, Star Wars and The Dark Knight Rises!!
Spin Master and NASCAR collide with new NASCAR Bashers! These vehicles of destruction are ready to race this Fall of 2012 and will retail for $9.99! NASCAR Spin Master is leading the way in innovation and design and bringing NASCAR back to mass market retailers. With a full product line up for 2012: NASCAR Bashers:...
Happy Presidents Day All! Today we have a jumbo sized episode as we finish up our Toy Fair 2012 discussion and interviews. Seriously… this episode ended up like 90 minutes. (I blame Jason.) We do our regular weekly discussion on the geek topics of the week. We talk about our impressions of what we saw [...]
If a business doesn’t have a website, customers can buy the products or solutions, and contact the business operator only during office hours. A website provides use of customers even in the course of non-office hours. They can receive required information and also carry out business transactions from a comfortable location without actually coming to [...]
Be sure to also check out the gallery pics below! lt;img src=quot;http://tformers.net/i/a/17226Cap.jpgquot;gt;After a year of the series broadcasting on The Hub cable network, and on the eve of a 2nd season debuting, consumers will finally be able to start picking up action figures from the Transformers: Prime series. The First Edition figures were a bit of a holy grail to find, but Toys R Us has being stocking the figures sporadically. Walmart and Target are also resetting aisles to make room. Tformers
Lou Pimentel’s upcoming ‘Love Sick’ Siamese Cherries edition is for all of those who don’t enjoy Valentine’s Day. The new translucent cherry red edition with embedded pill (nice touch) is limited to 12 pieces and was cast by Matt Anderson. As cool as the black cherry edition was, this just...
At Prize Fair 2012 Summer, Sega's booth had a boatload of plushes but, to be honest, a good portion of them were from series that I am not familiar with. This is a flaw on my part and I must ask you, good sleuths of the Tomocommunity, to speak up if you can identify the series that are mysteries to me. Those series in the gallery include the roly-poly ghost and dog, the sheep people, the wide-eyed cats, the ball-balancing dog, and the well-dressed bears.
Now that we have that out of the way, let's move on to the plushes I can recognize! The characters of Anpanman are in a matsuri mood, dressed in festive yukata and carrying fans and, well, anpan. They come as regular plushes and as straps. Plush Doraemon straps celebrate the Western Zodiac with the titular character dressed in costumes, like a lion and a scorpion. Tomodachi 8-nin had its colorful cast adorn straps as well hold stars as full-size plushes. The characters of Pakkororin came as plushes of all sizes, including plush backpacks. Familiar faces like Snoopy and Hello Kitty were also at the event. I love that Alice in Wonderland outfit on Kitty-chan. Jewel Pets, Ms. Bear, and Sugar Bunnies' sets provide straps and plushes that are more geared towards the female eye. The green and white puppy, WanWan, plays peekaboo and begs for hugs in his plush set. The only Rody offering was the plush tissue holder. I still love it, though.
See any prizes you absolutely have to own?

Are you a fan of cute little robots? Well, Dusan Cezek has got you covered! Take a look at a figure they hope to be releasing soon, named ROBi. You can take a look into the step by step character development, which includes Sketches, 3D renders, and the actual ROBi...
The Bacon Tie is a wonderful piece of geeky fashion that would be great for any meat buff. Are you a man? Do you have what it takes to look lean in a fatty meat? If you’ve attained that level of manhood already, then you’re ready for the next step… the Bacon Tie. This polyester creation is great for very important business meetings when you have to make a good impression. (Not really, unless you know that the guy who is ...
Background There are a number of artists, customizers and sculptors who take Onell Design's Glyos universe and expand upon it. Whether they create new Glyos-compatible parts/figures or complementary characters, it's one of the more collaborative communities in the designer toy realm. One of those artists is Ni, from NiStuff.com and 481 Universe. He has released [...]
One of the amazing things about WizKids HeroClix is the ever increasing variety of teams/armies you can make to play against your friends (or opponents in tournaments). The NECA/WizKids gallery does a good job of showing the packaging, but does a poor job of showing the potential of the game. To add to what they [...]
The Corn Dog Mints have been provided to me by the wonderful FunSlurp, a great source for geeky products such as this! I could just sit back here and tell you that these mints are awesome, but I have tasted these first-hand, and I can assure you that they’re everything you hope for! Even before the tin was open, I could smell the wonderful smell of corn dogs. I put a couple in my mouth, and was greeted with the delightful ...
A couple of Anohana Menma figures spotted during the Wonfes festivities at the Good Smile booth - a scale and Nendoroid version. Both are cuute! But which do you prefer?

I've always loved Kipi's cosplay work. Have been wanting to meet her ever since she cosplayed as our mascot character Mirai Suenaga.
In the cosplay section at the Wonfer Festival, was having a conversation about Kipi when all of a sudden there she was! Was great to meet her in person - she's an adorable lady!
I prefer the AFA pass instead of the Wonfes one ^^;
Some happy chap.
Since I posted the last bunch of photos of Kipi in Mirai cosplay, she has had a few more photo sessions which I pucked off the Internets. Most of these from Cosrain who dont credit the original photographer so I dont know who took most of these photos. Did manage to find two of the photographers below though.

The Flying Fish were created by the William Mark Cooperation, which was established by Mark Forti and his father William. Forti invented a similar inflatable to the Flying Fish that flew in the air for a marketing project while in college. Not even the physics professors at Mark’s college, Baylor University, could determine how the [...]
Last week, I ran this Pic of the Day by Ed Speir IV. Featuring Hasbro’s G.I. Joe Hazard-Viper and Zombie-Viper, I declared it one of my favorite POTDs ever. Given its cinematic look and style, I asked Ed if he wouldn’t mind describing how he made it. –PG Here is a brief description of how [...]
