Just in time for spring, Tubby Table Toys, Inc. has expanded its Tubby Table toddler bathtime solution with the new Tubby Table Tubby Buddies toy line. The “Zoo-Born Animals” and “

Cloud B Twilight Turtle – Tried and Tested Dear mummy, this is the first review I’ve eve
It stomps across the room seeking its prey. It fires its weapons up to thirty feet. With a direct hi
Children are not the most conscious when it comes to germs and the dangers they can pose. We know ho
I’m always so addicted to online shopping. I mean, one-click shopping, quick payment through a
Check out the above "Peter "Star-Lord" Quill-centric "Extended Trailer" for the film "Guardians of the Galaxy" (or as Stevens remarked on my FB - more "extended scene" than "trailer" - so true tho ;p), which also saw "activity" this week via Entertainment Weekly Page pics and a LEGO reveal (Also posted #onTOYSREVIL).
"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" avoids discussing further about Turtle-faces and instead teases Turtle-Hands via posters, and we get to see "Master Splinter" via LEGO Reveals (Also posted #onTOYSREVIL). I'm not hating on this incarnation of TMNT tho (not much anyways) and am always open to reboots and reinterpretations ... within my personal tolerance, of course lol
While "X-Men: Days of Future Past" saw Character Posters (PopcornX / XMENonFILM) - although I miss seeing Colossus and Kitty "Shadowcat" Pryde's romance, especially on Joss Whedon's ru on "Astonishing X-Men" comicbook ... "Quicksilver" ran ahead of the pack for a magazine image feature and TV commercial promoting burgers (Also on PopcornX). Not to be left out, the rest of the X-Men had their feature in the pages of Entertainment Weekly as well :)
GODZILLA had an new extended video (above), a new Poster & Movie Still, while Japanese superhero "Kikaider" gets a REBOOT. Coincidentally I just rewatched "Space Battleship Yamato" on DVD again yesterday/last night, and am always keen to see "re-boots". Go watch the original Episode 1 of the "classic" version, for comparison!
Paparazzi News comes in the form of Character Designs for Captain America & Black Widow in "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" while filming in South Korea (somehow feel kinda "filthy" for posting this tho… might not be doing more of this … or maybe I will LOL ;p)
Promo Art by Hasbro for "Transformers: Age of Extinction" showcases the "entire lineup" of robots - although there are more Dinobots than just 3 x Decepticons? LOL (Also posted on PopcornX) … and Grimlock gets a solo image showcase and dimension description!
Highlight of the week has to be my preview of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" (Also posted #onTOYSREVIL) which also showcased some "fanart".
And finally something which I haven't posted anywhere else, as it is not necessarily a "feature film" per se, but I reckon would make a splendid "noir" live-action short, IMHO: "Batman: Strange Days" - Bruce Timm's Batman 75th Anniversary animated short, "featuring a lost tale from Batman's past, the Dark Knight tracks a strange giant to the mysterious lair of Dr. Hugo Strange."
We Are Indie Toys (Make Your Own Resin Characters) by Louis Bou is the follow-up to the 2010 published We Are Paper Toys. The 208 page softcover book features handmade art pieces from 30 different artists. Those artists include: Emilio Garcia; Jon Knox; Le Merde; Patient No6; Plaseebo; Dave Pressler; Cris Rose; Paul Shih; Suckadelic; […]
Back with my latest upgrade kit. This time I produced a major redesign for FP/ROTF Brawl. This upgrade kit includes a proper turret, new head, new tank treads that will turn into his arms and feet (no more duck feet) and also eliminates the back kibble. I worked on the design for a few months and it went through multiple ideas and lots of retooling to get everything to workout the way I wanted.
If youve ever been in the business of selling items from your Transformers collection, chances are it was for a good reason. When action such as that is properly justified, it can be lived with and we move on, waiting for a point in the future where any regrettable sales can be undone. I know personally I have sold to raise money for other purchases, because of shifting interests and because sometimes I had to.
The forums have been rolling out the Tranformers figure reviews. So many, I can hardly keep up. So I am going to start posting these round-ups with all the latest reviews to help everyone get the scoop on new and older toys. Everyone is welcomed to share their video and pictorial reviews. All you need to do is post them in the forums reviews section. Read on to see all the new reviews that have been posted this month.
There are essentially two ways to enjoy a toyful Sunday, at least in my book: (1) visit the weekly Sunday Flea Market at China Square Central, and (2) Gawk at images online for toys I have no information for … which I now present to you, my gentle readers, as a weekly-weekend blog-feature! Marvel at the yummy pics with basic to zero-information LOL

Nice upgrade – at first I thought the “Casino Pitty’s” would just be the ones with bow ties that open the front door but nice upgrade! Casino Pitty #1 (with phone). Casino Pitty #1 (with birthday hat). Yea, no it’s not Pitty with Nuclear Warhead … though I did rack my brain trying to remember […]

I just love creating silk floral arrangements in all sorts of containers. I might use a basket, a metal container, a typical floral basin, glass vases, wooden crates, etc. Just about anything. So, when someone in the family asked me if I wanted a white milk glass candy dish they were throwing away I said - sure!
So, since I had put away all my winter silk arrangements I decided to make a small, cheery silk floral arrangement for the spring and summer using the white milk glass candy dish.
The arrangement is a combination of silk floral leaves, magnolia stems, lavender stems, and various other small spring like silk floral.
I was pleased with the way the arrangement came out. It was definitely a cheery arrangement for the spring and summer.
Candy might look be better in a candy dish and certainly be tastier - but this looked great. I was pleased with it and hope you like it too.
set name: mutation chamber unleashed
theme: teenage mutant ninja turtles

There must be some unwritten rule asserting that if it exists then eventually it will receive its own version of Monopoly. Although it seems that just about everything has been covered, the list of whatever-is-left has shrunk once again with the Legend of Zelda franchise getting its first Monopoly set while Pokemon will be receiving its SECOND Monopoly set (see the first here). Before anybody accuses Pokemon of monopolizing these things, bear in mind that about five hundred Pokemon have been added since that first Monopoly game.
Only the packaging images are available thus far (see gallery) although both sets are slated to release mid-August. They can be pre-ordered for around US$40 apiece, coincidentally the same MSRP as The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Pokemon X/Y (I'm not saying, but I'm just saying...). Oh well, it might be a good cure for "boardom".
