Thanks to images flowing on the ‘net, here’s a look at what Coarse has waiting for fans and collectors attending the Thailand Toy Expo (5.1 – 5.4). Let’s start with ‘Outburst’ – a special set featuring 24 black + grey omens surrounding a single white hand-made dancing Omen. Outburst is...
Hidemi Matsuzuki has released some images of Square-Enix's upcoming DC Comics variant Static Arts Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman. While the trio was previously seen at Toy Fair, (and we caught our first glimpse of Batman last October), this is the first time we've seen Superman painted and... he looks incredible!
Superman's usual red and blue has also been joined by gold elements, similar to what we saw with the Variant Play Arts Kai Superman except the gold seems more pronounced and the overall figure doesn't appear as silly. The company also did a really nice job with the head-sculpt.
I've also enjoyed what I've seen of the Variant Static Arts Wonder Woman, who is also exceptionally cute. The character has more of a pose than Superman and conveys a fair bit of personality. The only one I actually dislike is Batman... It wasn't originally fond of the design and that certainly hasn't changed with time.
Care to pick a favorite, readers? Check out all three in the gallery.
It’s hard to tell exactly how large these are but it seems they are close to 8″ from front to back. BLADE. WINDLIFTER. Windlifter in the film picks up the bottom compartment that carries the smoke jumpers, does the compartment actually separate? In CASE A, there are 4 Windlifters and 2 Blades. The other 2 […]
In yet another bizarre Happy Meal move, McDonald's has segregated its Amazing Spider-Man 2 toys into separate (but equal) gendered offerings. Little girls (and some boys) will have the opportunity to pick up a set of pink Spider-Man accessories because... well, does McDonald's even have female executive leadership?
Admittedly, the decision to break up the Amazing Spidey 2 Happy Meal toys into boys and girls selections is less baffling than say, the choice to segregate Pokemon in the past (and apparently the future) but, at the same time, it's still such a "what the hell?!" move. Even weirder is the decision to make all of the accessories pink (you know, as opposed to Spidey's ACTUAL colors) because, well, girls like the color pink! (And because McDonald's doesn't feel like asking women for their opinions on the subject?)
Comics Alliance took the whole idea once step further, however, when it pointed out the choice possibly carries a sly insinuation that "girls can like superheroes, but boys can be superheroes." I'm not sure if the assertion takes the whole thing a step too far, but it's definitely food for thought.
All that aside, I'm not going to say that the girls' toys are awful or even that the overuse of pink was a terrible idea. I fully expect something like note cards or a mini-diary (neither of which is much of a toy...) would go over better with girls while the bracelets, which could appeal to both genders, might not go over well with the parents of boys. More importantly, girls always have the choice of asking for the boys' toy (or boys for the girls' toys) even after a clerk has made that decision for them.
For additional reading, be sure to check out this op-ed from a young woman seeking to end the practice of gendered Happy Meal toys.
figma Captain America's popped up in quite a few places recently, from the Miyazawa Model Exhibition to a Figsoku blog, but now he's finally been placed onto the official Good Smile site, which means we get lovely high quality preview images to pore over.
I think Cap looks great and Max Factory have done an excellent job of capturing all the detail in his outfit (check out those zips on his legs) while giving it the necessary tough, armour-like look. The face is super bland, but it's not a disaster and overall I'd classify the figure as a real looker.
Unfortunately (and exactly like past entries in the Avengers range), nobody is really going to talk about the figure when you could talk about the price - a whopping ¥6,111. That's the cheapest in the line yet but still utterly bonkers for a figma, and one which only comes with a single accessory (the shield) at that. Sadly I suspect that'll limit the sales of what looks to be a real smart toy, but if you've gotta have him pre-orders are open now.

With Thailand Toy Expo (May 1-4) currently underway in Central World, Bangkok, THREEZERO shares with folks and fans "in-hand" images of both their Dead Space 3 prototype and Titanfall: Atlas (20.5" tall mecha with unpainted 6" tall pilot).
"Impressive", to say the least! I cannot even begin to describe my excitement looking at these makes, remembering a decade ago while actively collecting 1/6, I would not dare imagine details of this magnitutde could ever be produced as "production figures" ... but of course, they all come with a "financial cost" befitting these awesomeness...

Students take to chalkboards once a week and create these beautifully rendered quotes – all in anonymity. I wish I was the professor who stumbled upon them first. Stop by Designboom to see more drawings by Dangerdust.
So what got my attention about Pobber Toys' display at Art Toy Culture Festival in Seoul, South Korea (May 1-5) is that far-right BAD ASS very nicely armored up! Custom or Production? Not forgetting the event exclusive Bad Ass: Mecha from Kronk that folks can procure!
Meanwhile, "revealed" below is the Bad Ass Mutant A that is the exclusive to Thailand Toy Expo (May 1-4 @ Central World, Bangkok)!

Party Print Liu Liu, Dressed Doll, $149.99 This is the only one I'd buy if I had money to spare. And just for the doll, not the outfit.
Jellykoe's booth at C2E2 served two purposes: to sell quirky plushes to con-goers and to promote their recent Kickstarter campaign, Tox City. To raise awareness for the campaign (which is still in progress), two of the Kickstarter plushes, Bushy Bat and Pawley, along with Tox City "starter packs," containing pins and postcards, were on hand. Our very own Tian Ma was lucky enough to see the two prototypes in person and snap photos for us. Thanks, Tian!
Along with the Tox City-related merchandise, Jellykoe also had some familiar faces at the booth. You can spot the Better Yeti, Ripley, Nosferafu, Wonky Bear, Narwaldo, Giraphael, Split Hare, Mr. Wonky, and a bucket of Dwebbles. Nearly much the whole line-up, in fact.
Check out the gallery to see more of the booth and Jellykoe's awesome offerings!

A new Silkstone doll debuted today. She is called Principessa. Here is the description from the Barbie Collector website:
Per Cent’Anni! “For a Hundred Years” is the perfect toast to our stunning bride. Principessa™ Barbie® doll says “Si” to a life of amore, dressed in an ivory wedding dress extravagantly embellished with sequined silvery embroidery and capped with romantic puff sleeves. The tea length skirt is lined in organza and worn over a demure petticoat. Inspired by classic Italian cinema, the close-up worthy accessories include a rhinestone-studded tiara worn with an ivory veil, shortie gloves, “bouquet,” and prayer “book.”The doll retails for $125.
If nothing else, Mattel excels in their photograph and settings. This is a fabulous example of the work that they put into presenting their Silkstone dolls. I want to know who that doll is with the crossed legs! Is this a sign of things to come? She looks like a Silkie.
As for the bride, she won't be joining my collection as I've sworn off adding more Silkstones unless one comes along that is killer amazing. Principessa has a lovely face but the dress doesn't wow me.
