I suspect you will either know this one or you won’t. You might recognize the pattern before the item.
Hey there Sailor Scouts! On Saturday, April 5th Q Pop Shop will be hosting a group art exhibit you aren’t going to miss out! They have yet again assembled an amazing roster of artists to participate in their all new show, “Magical Girls Heroines: Sailor Moon & Sailor Senshi”. This...
Kotobukiya's beautiful version of Spice & Wolf's Holo has become a trademark figure for the company. First released in 2008, she's undergone two subsequent re-releases, most recently in 2011. Now she's back for a near unprecedented fourth time.
This version of Holo is dubbed a 'Renewal Package Edition', but as far as I can tell that simply means a new box rather than any substantial changes to figure. That's a good thing too because this one is a timeless sculpt, simple but elegant and beautiful without being overly flashy. The gentle ripple of the dress, the cute arms outstretched pose, the restrained palette - there's a reason her popularity continues to endure.
For this release Holo receives a thousand yen price bump, but that still brings her in at a very reasonable ¥6,800. She'll be arriving in homes this July, and if you're a new collector who hasn't had the chance to grab her yet, I'd strongly recommend it.
Patrick Lippe AKA Don-P shares with us snaps of his custom 3" Dunny series, available at the Toy Chronicle booth at ToyConUK 2014 - priced at 40 pounds (around US$66 dollars) each. "Grimace" (the one with the smile), "Zombie", and the "Chief" (the one with the eyepad) are from the "Tiki Clown Tribe" … now do you dare split them up? :)

"Falling Leaves" is the name of this custom-painted 4-inch tall Mini Munny from Adam Greeley, currently available for sale at US$75, for which Adam added; "It was a commission piece and I let the guy know it was done. I gave him a week to see if he would get back to me but no dice. So it's up for grabs to whoever might be interested in it."

Mashingup a 3A Toy Tomorrow King and a Dunny, AVATAR666 creates an extremely commendable custom adaptation "TK General Shownny" (the OG TK Gneral Showa version here) … ah heck, it looks awesome!

overall design is great.

Dolls everywhere! That could be my motto. You know the dreaded cat ladies with 10 cats? I think if I was a single lady approaching 40, I would be that lady but with dolls. I think that might be creepier. Ah well, we are what we are! Today I thought I’d reintroduce all of us […]
(if you don't know the comicbook lore, that is!)
In anticipation of the premiere of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (opening this Thursday in Singapore!), The New Paper's art team dug deep into the history of Marvel Comics to find out just who is "The Winter Soldier" and what's in his past. Featuring art by Kelvin Chan, with animation for this motion comic done by Billy Ker and Angeline Chiong. So now you know. :)
The Sorgenfresser Worry Eater is a soft toy that comforts children in a way that extends beyond a simple cuddle.
I've never really liked figures getting bundled in with deluxe versions of games, but it looks like they're pretty much here to stay, especially in Japan. I say that because yet another game — Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson for the Nintendo 3DS — is on board the figure bundling train. This time, it's a series of Niitengos from Toy's Works that will be a part of Senran Kagura 2's Nyu Nyu DX Edition. The five figures bundled in with the game's deluxe edition will be of Homura, Yomi, Hikage, Mirai and Haruka, along with a drama CD, soundtrack CD and drama CD, all inside an exclusive box.
Senran Kagura 2 comes out for the 3DS in Japan on August 7 and you can watch the full trailer on YouTube. Anyone considering plunking down the ¥10,810 for the deluxe bundle?

BRUSSELS - From collapsing pushchairs to chemical-polluted shoes -- an ever-rising number of toxic toys and skin-irritating textiles are being removed from supermarket shelves by Europe's consumer safety squad. Products from China top the list of suspect items. Thanks to better policing, Europe's Rapid Information System (RAPEX) issued 2,364 notifications of unsafe non-food products in 2013 ...
If you sometimes felt you were living in a parallel dimension where collectibles of enemies in a popular video game were released before that game's protagonist, you'll be happy to know that time-lines are being restored with pre-orders for NECA's BioShock Infinite Booker.
Booker (last seen at Toy Fair) may have lagged behind the pack a little (Elizabeth, one of the Boys of Silence, the Columbia Concept statue, and the Washington Motorized Patriot have already been released; additionally a Ben Franklin Motorized Patriot is slated to release in May), but it looks like the wait was worth it as NECA's Booker is looking pretty good. While I'm a little concerned that the jointing won't offer a lot of movement, the sculpt and paintwork both look great so he'll at least good in more vanilla poses. The figure will will include a Sky-Hook (the iconic BioShock Infinite weapon/traveling device, not to be confused with the Prince Xizor's base in Shadows of the Empire) and a shotgun. Although the Murder of Crows Vigor was shown at Toy Fair, NECA tweeted that the accessory probably won't be included.
NECA's BioShock Infinite Booker can be pre-ordered for US$20 (his MSRP is listed as US$25) and is slated to ship around July.

[Business Wire] - When you play a game of MONOPOLY, do you collect a pile of cash when you land on Free Parking? Do you auction off properties that people don’t purchase immediately? How do you get out of Jail? While MONOPOLY fans may claim to know how to play the game, many actually incorporate their own rules, known as ‘House Rules’ – whether they know it or not.
[at New York Times] - Hasbro, the maker of the classic board game, will ask players to debate their favorite “house rules” for inclusion as options in a future edition.
