“Paul V.” sends us photos of Cora Copper landing in Australia! The warning is not to eat her plastic camera. She was one of the last vehicles listed as a Final Lap diecast but never made it out in 2010. Too bad she’s not made of actual copper. Not listed in the next US case […]
Today, we have relatively underdeveloped virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift that immerse viewers in 360-degree digital environments where they can move their head to look up, down, and around. But integrating elements of reality beyond audio to create a fuller virtual reality experience presents difficult engineering challenges. Internet-connected sex toys are a tentative first step ...
What you already know is that "Punky - Elmer's Little Scarecrow" and "Elmer's Little Boy" are best friends. Punky is a" Victorian Munchkin scarecrow who looks just like his best friend Elmer except he's a scarecrow.
What you don't know is that Punky has an adorable younger brother and younger sister who just happen to be fraternal twins. His younger brother is "Morty The Pumpkin Munchkin, Punky's Little Brother Scarecrow Boy Doll and His Pumpkins." His younger sister is "Melanie Munchkin, Punky's Little Sister Scarecrow Girl Doll and Her Pumpkins." Morty was born December 31 at 11:59 P.M. Melanie was born January 1 at 12:01 A.M. So, while Morty might appear to be a year older due to the year differences in fact he is only 2 minutes older.
Punky got his nickname when Elmer was a little boy. You see, Elmer couldn't pronounce "Pumpkin" which was Punky's Dad's name for him. So, "Punky" just stuck and it's been his nickname ever since. "Punky - Elmer's Little Scarecrow" would prefer to be called Pumpkin, at least it relates to the Fall and scarecrows. Elmer pays him no heed. He likes "Punky" just fine.
So, when he learned that his younger brother and sister LOVED pumpkins and LOVED being surrounded by them he was thrilled. They could sit in the pumpkin field surrounded by pumpkins for hours on end and be in pumpkin heaven. For scarecrows it doesn't get any better than that.
"Melanie Munchkin, Punky's Little Sister Scarecrow Girl Doll and Her Pumpkins" just LOVES her older brother, Punky. So, when she found out that Punky had his own line of custom fabrics she wanted a dress made out of his Punky - Elmer's Little Scarecrow - Large fabric. Since she asked me and since I love sewing with Punky's custom fabric line I happily agreed. And, since she had some of Punky's customs fabrics in her clothing her twin brother, Morty The Pumpkin Munchkin, Punky's Little Brother Scarecrow Boy Doll and His Pumpkins, had to have something made out of Punky's custom fabrics as well. He has a shirt made out of Punky, Elmer's Little Scarecrow - Mirror Small fabric.
Punky has four different fabrics in his line so she's hoping Linda will make her 3 other dresses out of his Punky, Elmer's Little Scarecrow - Mirror Small fabric, Punky With The White Background fabric, and Punky 2 With Brown Background fabric. She's got her fingers crossed.
Melanie's face is embroidered and she has a cloth head and body. She is wearing lace trimmed bloomers gathered at the waist and ankles and has black felt boots with laces criss-crossed with embroidery thread. She has a beautiful dress made out of "Punky - Elmer's Little Scarecrow - Large fabric" that is lace trim edged and gathered at the waist, neck, and wrists. A large ribbon is wrapped around her waist and tied in a large bow in the front.
Her Fall color coordinated vest is lined with bright and cheery yellow print fabric and is running stitch embroidered along the edges. She has beautiful and thick straight orange hair along the side seams of her head with the back of her head left bald which is barely contained underneath her lined bonnet with fabric that matches her lined vest. A brown bandanna is wrapped around her neck and she is surrounded by two of her favorite quilted pumpkins.
Melanie and her twin brother, Morty, just LOVE their quilted pumpkins and especially love their older brother, Punky. As far as they are concerned life doesn't get any better than sitting in the pumpkin field surrounded by pumpkins and Punky.

Funny how a video promo could make me want for a CHOGOKIN HELLO KITTY, even for just a moment!
Celebrating 40 years of the mouthless kitty, TAMASHII NATIONS has concocted this 10.5cm tall "Superalloy" figure made of ABS and die-cast mini-figure, and ha articulated parts to enable it to "transfort" into a trio of "modes": Land, Water and Air. Seems the SRP is 4,400 YEN, with a Feb 3rd 2014 release (??? = this particular info is purely "guess work" on my part, based on untranslatable text on the product page *facepalm*)
Nevertheless, do check in with your fav retailers for availability and product stat confirmation LOL
Toy Aisle Trolls is a feature highlighting acts of vandalism to in-store toy items. If you find a ruined package, a stolen figure, a swapped-out figure, or any other such acts, take a photo (cell phone photos are fine if they’re not blurry) and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Funko released a press statement a while back that it would be journeying into the realm of 6-inch and 3.75-inch scale action figures, which is something of a brave new world for a company which has largely specialized in super-deformed/chibi figures like the Pop! line and Mystery Minis. One of the announced lines was for the hit tv show Game of Thrones and, while the line was unofficially revealed through an ebay listing recently, Funko has also given fans their first official look at its 6-inch Game of Thrones Legacy Collection.
The first wave consists of Ned Stark, Daenerys Targaryen (with Drogon), a White Walker, The Hound, Jon Snow, and Tyrion Lannister. I'm honestly a little impressed with the figures which feature solid sculpting and what seems to be a good level of articulation. If I didn't know better, I would never have guessed that this is Funko's first stab at this sort of figure since these are right on par with other Western companies' collectible-level offerings. My favorites out of this bunch are probably Daenerys and the White Walker, although I also like the look of the Jon Snow.
These figures will apparently be sold first at Barnes and Noble (and could be at your local store as we speak!) before becoming available through other retailers on March 4th. They'll be joined by a second wave (consisting of a New Daenerys(mother of dragons outfit), Khal Drago, Jamie Lannister, Robb Stark, Arya and Brienne) which will apparently be unveiled at Toy Fair and slated to release this Fall.
For those who like the look of these figures but aren't Game of Thrones fans, keep in mind that the Legacy Collection will feature other properties including a much-anticipated line based on Joss Whedon's Firefly.
VISEone has completed a new Henna Qee custom that was made in cooperation with Carbotaurus. Customizing an 8" Qee, he used high glossy brown metallic effect paint with a water transfer technique to apply the pattern. This custom is available to purchase for €160 shipping included (around $220).
And while the above video promo for events' Kickstarter is since over, the message remains an interesting perspective from folks not necessarily living and directly living with/in the art toy culture right now … it's like, folks who ask you "WHAT IS IT YOU COLLECT?" And this exhibition aims to showcase that to folks, and beyond, providing the history and heritage to essentially the pieces of plastic we collect / hoard / own.
"THIS IS NOT A TOY" is an Exhibition of Contemporary Art + Collectible Design, celebrating the World's First Large-Scale Exhibition Dedicated to Designer Toys at the Design Exchange, Canada.
Launched February 7th and exhibiting thru May 19th, 2014, guest curator Pharrell Williams shares with folks collectible sculptures, figures and paintings from familiar names such as KAWS, Takashi Murakami, Huck Gee, Friends With You, whose works are now on display in a museum setting. The exhibition images posted here brings utter delight to my toy-loving heart, and I can only wish I could be there personally :)
This is a ticketed exhibition, and you an purchase admission tickets for This Is Not A Toy here. See more images posted on my Facebook, along with much more event information.
EVENT PRESS: "With its origins in 80s and 90s graffiti culture, the small release toy is an underground art form that at once represents rebellion and playfulness. At the same time a product of consumer culture and a defensible piece of art, these works both reject and appropriate familiar consumer imagery, and manipulate household names, cartoons and cultural icons. The result is a powerful one, shifting control from brand to artist and finally, to consumer. Some artists manipulate and leverage familiar visual communication as tribute or provocation, while others create their own original forms, characters and worlds to convey their ideas of a more affected existence."
