    After their attendance at last month's Toy Fair, fans of Diamond Select Toys are no doubt wondering when we will get more news on the goodies the company had on display. DST recently released additional information on many of those toys, set to release this Summer, plus some extra surprises! Ready? Here we go!

    The new Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare action figures particularly caught my eye. The figures accurately resembled the characters in the game as well. It is really very impressive. There are four Plants vs. Zombies Action Figure sets, each with different zombie and plant plus accessories and weapons. Each set will cost US$24.99. There will also be a series of Minimates, DST's posable collectable mini-figures, themed to Plants vs. Zombies. Costing US$19.99, the set of four will include the Cactus, Peashooter, All-Star Zombie, and Engineer Zombie.

    Don't think that those are the only Minimates coming up. Summer will also see the release of Battle Beasts Series 2, featuring Giraffe and Hammerhead, Cow and Bear, Cobra and Bat, and Anubis and Thrush. Each pack will cost US$9.99. Joining them will be the premier release of Pulp Fiction Minimates Series 1, featuring a two-pack of Jules and Vincent costing US$9.99. Also debuting is the Sin City Minimates Series 1 Box Set (US$19.99), which will contain figures of Hartigan, Nancy, Senator Roark, and the Yellow Bastard. Fans of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back will recognize the Minimates four-pack (US$19.99) featuring Bluntman, Chronic, Chaka Luther King, and Cock-Knocker.

    Just in case that wasn't enough Jay and Silent Bob for you, there will be Retro Cloth Action Figures of Bluntman and Chronic (US$19.99), with fabric costumes and removable weapons. And rounding out our toy line-up is the Batman Classic TV Series Joker Bust (US$59.99). If you are a fan of Cesar Romero's portrayal of the popular comic book baddie, this bust is for you.

    While you may have to wait until summer to own all this sweetness, the good news is much of it is up for pre-order at Diamond Select Toys' online store.

    One of the most memorable musical numbers in the Funny Face film is "Think Pink". If you remember, a year ago, Integrity Toys release a series of seven dolls inspired from the film and its costumes, as part of their Paramount license. So it was only natural that one outfit at least from the Think Pink sequence would be selected. Well, actually there are two, a pink suit and an evening gown. Here, as a tribute to the Oscar cermony that takes place tonight, we focus on the latter, in a recen photo shoot I did.


    The doll is evoking the model Sunny Harnett who appears in the film along more famous models Suzy Parker and Dovima (who has a speaking role). Sunny appears with many outfits in the sequence but most notably the outfit shown here. This look is composed of a pink satin two-piece gown with a transformable pink faux fur peplum that turns into a cape, as shown in the film. Pink opera length gloves (the usual oven mitt variety), bright pink satin shoes and a jewellery set (clear bauble necklace and rhinestone stud earrings) complete the outfit. 


    The 12" fully articulated vinyl doll has rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes and sports the FR: Monogram body (with Victoire Roux legs) and the Imogen head sculpt.She does reming me of Sunny Harnett a lot and the gown is a faithful representation of the one shown in the film. She looks ready to pick up an Oscar! The last close-up of her shows her necklace backwards, it was a mistake but I liked the photo so here it goes.

    She popped up briefly at Wonder Festival, but these scans give us our first close look at the next entry in the ever growing Monogatari line of Nendoroids. This time it'll be the loli (looking) vampire Shinobu Oshino who joins the fold.

    The scans don't give us any real detail on accessories and such, but we do get confirmation that Shonbu will be presented in her Nisemonogatari look, slightly older and dolled up in a light summer dress. Her trademark sunhat is present and correct and fully removable. Most importantly, that head sculpt is simply adorable, and gives me high hopes for the finished product. More news as we get it.

    MegaHouse has impressed me so far with their Dragon's Crown offerings. I'm pleased to say their upcoming Sorceress figure continues the trend. The painted version shown in this month's magazine scans looks very solid, so I'll likely be adding this one to my pre-order list.

    Although the front of the Sorceress is the only part that gets any attention, we can see a shot of her back in the scans this time. The figure looks great from all angles, assuming you're fine with George Kamitani's exaggerated character designs. I can't wait to add all three Dragon's Crown ladies to my collection, but alas the Dwarf will have to wait.

    Embrace Japan's figures have been a mixed bag to me. I always like their ambition, beauty, and original designs (usually by artist Sousi Hirose), but the manufacturing quality is always lacking.

    Still I look forward to Embrace Japan's figures because - let's face it - sometimes it gets boring seeing endless Monogatari and KanColle figures in the news. This month's scans feature Embrace Japan's Black Hood Benoa, an original character design by Sousi Hirose. If you recall he did the Diabolus Inclinatus, Diabolus Ungulate, Duram Sherif, and Sigrid of the Thorn designs as well.

    I like her costume and that hellish base. There's also a cast-off feature if you like to see boobs, but she looks good either way. There's no price or release info yet, but I'm about ready to start the Embrace Japan emotional roller coaster again.

  • 03/02/14--11:45: Toy Discussion: KiddoWorks
  • So, I accidentally came across this toy company called KiddoWorks earlier today and I had to share this guys work. These sixth-scale figures look amazing! They seem to be extremely limited in edition sizes and rich in price, but that's due to all of the custom work that goes into these figures. I attached a full image above, so you can check out all of the figures in one shot, but be sure to check out his Facebook Page as well as the official website. What do you guys think? I personally love 'em!

    It's not always exactly black and white when it comes to the identification of some vintage Steiff treasures.  And such is the case with this somewhat rare, early postwar lamb, who just indeed happens to be black and white!  Check out this note from a friend in New England, who asks about the eartag on an extra-large version of a sweet barnyard buddy.  Sandy writes in part:
     
    "Steiffgal,
     What can you tell me about a black and white Lamby - the one with green eyes - that is about 14 inches tall with a stock tag number 6535,02?  I don't see that number listed for the black Lamby in the Sortiment - but I know there are things that are not listed.  None of the stock numbers for the black Lamby end in 02 but there is such a number listed for a white Lamby.  
     
    Thanks, 
    Sandy"
     
    Let's not start counting sheep and take a look right away at this great Steiff design.  Sandy is describing a very nice black and white lamb pattern that only officially appeared in the Steiff line for a handful of years, from 1954 through 1956, in 10, 14, and 22 cm.  She is pictured here on the left; these Lambys are from Steiffgal's personal collection.  Called Lamby, she is standing on all fours, unjointed, and made from black wool plush.  Her tail is made from white wool plush; smaller versions have a white forehead while larger versions have a white forehead, face, and muzzle area.  Lamby's ears are made from black felt.  Her face is detailed with green and black pupil eyes and a simple red hand embroidered nose and mouth.  Lamby left the factory in Giengen with a silk bow and brass bell. 

    So what about the Lamby Sandy is describing - a really big one at 14 inches tall?  Well, that does translate to 35 cm - which is much larger than the examples noted in the standard Steiff reference books.  So what may be this item's story - and what's with his article number that does not appear like any of the other standard size black Lamby models?  Well, only the lamb knows for sure, and many things in the Steiff world are not as consistent as many collectors would like.  So here's Steiffgal's possible take on this marvelous Steiff mystery.

    Steiff began producing its lovely and extremely popular white lambs post war in 1948; they were named Lamb from 1948 to 1953, and Lamby from 1954 until the end of production in 1976.  Steiff introduced a black lamb pattern, also called Lamby, in 1954.  The article numbers for the first series of both white and black Lambys in 10, 14, and 22 cm were the same, except that the black ones had an s right after the number.  When Steiff did this, it usually was meant to indicate a color, and in this case, it is Steiffgal's strongest suspicious that the s was to designate schwarz, or black.  The 35 cm version of white Lamby, with article number 6535,02 was made from 1953 through 1958.  "6535,02" in Steiff language means young, wool plush, 35 cm, without wheels, and with a voice.  
     
    It is Steiffgal's guess here that black Lamby was made in this 35 cm size as a sample, in a very limited production, or was not documented in the 1954-1956 time period.  It is not known if the 35 cm black Lamby Sandy is describing has a voice in its belly or not, and this is pretty important.   
    • If he does, then the article number 6535,02 would actually make sense for the black Lamby.  It is interesting to note that Steiff's numbering system in the 1947-1958 time frame did not explicitly represent colors via digits.  
    • If he does not have a squeaker in his belly, it is Steiffgal's best guess, that because the company realized that they would not be making black Lamby in the 35 cm size, but wanted to sell these larger pieces, they put on the 6535,02 ear tags they had on hand because in essence they do closelydescribe the product, and the time frame in which it was produced, and this would be the most cost effective and efficient rather than ordering a bunch of tags when only a few were required.  
    Steiffgal hopes this discussion on the numbering system on Steiff's black and white Lamby lambs all adds up to you.
