Snuggly Ugly’s super soft dolls are clearly much more snuggly than they are ugly. Upcycled dresses, soft cashmere hair, and not a hard edged button or nubby nose in sight. These limited editions beauties are ready for some luvs – which one do we hug first?
Here’s a cool little t-shirt design by artist Robert Retiano featuring classic characters that have survived the 8-bit era of gaming as Marvel’s Avengers. There’s Donkey Kong as the Incredible Hulk, Link as Captain America, Mega Man as Iron Man, and Mario as Thor.
What oldschool video game characters would be Black Widow and Hawkeye?
set name: straight road plates
come with 2 straight road plates.
overall design is great.
According to data from The NPD Group Inc., U.S. dollar sales of toys increased 3 percent in the four weeks leading up to Easter, compared to the four weeks preceding Easter of last year. Easter toy sales got a boost from the warmer weather provided by the holiday occurring three weeks earlier than last year. [...]
I didn't even know that there was going to be another Transformers film, but, apparently, it's slated to hit theaters on June 27th 2014. The only reason I know...Funko has announced their Pop! Movies: Transformers: Age of Extinction vinyl series. Three Autobots have been announced for a release this month: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Drift.
I am so thrilled to be able to share with you the latest pattern I made. Thrilled because of the way it turned out (awesome) and thrilled because oh my gosh it's finally done and wow was it a lot of work.
Ahem: Introducing BMO (or Beemo, if you prefer), the hand sewing pattern:
This pattern is frankly HUGE. It clocks in at 16 total pages. BMO however, is quite tiny- just 3.5" tall.
Look, he fits right in your hand!
This pattern includes detailed step by step instructions with lots (seriously, LOTS) of photos, a supply guide, and, for the first time ever, a bonus Stitch Guide. An illustrated little extra that shows you how to do all the stitches mentioned in the pattern. Yay!
This pattern is 100% for hand sewing. I'm not going to lie to you, it's a lot of hand sewing. However, this makes it a perfect project to work on while watching, oh, I don't know, an Adventure Time marathon or something. Plus, you will feel like a sewing rock star once you finish one of these little dudes.
If you'd like a copy of your very own, come on over to the shop. BMO is waiting for you!
With dozens and dozens of characters over 17 years of publication, One Piece is a figure company's dream. There are so many characters that can be made into figures, and just as many fans foaming at the mouth to pick them up. What's even better is that there are enough action scenes, costume changes and time skips to provide multiple versions for release.
One of these spin-offs is the battle versions of the Figuarts ZERO line. Previously released characters get put into (ostensibly) better poses with effect parts that reflect their abilities. It's a great idea, but one that could lead to collector fatigue. However, when the quality of the figures is so good, it's hard to imagine fans not snapping them up when they get the chance.
Hit the jump to see two such figures get some excellent battle versions!
It’s no secret that kids are extremely influenced by the characters they see in movies and on TV. Superheroes are particularly influential, with their mankind-saving tendencies and super-human abilities. The best thing about superheroes is that they appeal to kids and adults alike, since many of the iconic superheroes we know and love have been [...]
After a lengthy legal battle, a voluntary recall was issued for Buckyballs and Buckycubes, the high-powered magnetic toys, for an “unreasonable risk of injury” for teenagers and children.
Toy State has made the first acquisitions in its corporate history, securing the worldwide rights to Nikko by acquiring the consolidated operations of its Japan and Hong Kong offices. Toy State has also acquired Nikko Entertainment BV, the European arm of the company’s R/C toy category. Nikko manufactures R/C toys, from custom vehicles, boats, and [...]
Having just revealed their impressive Modzilla sofubi from Ron English, Toy Art Gallery has taken the wraps off another of their large scale sofubi figures -- Lurkfoot by Lurk. A wild take on the Sasquatch archetype, Lukrfoot brings a lowbrow vibe to the legend. Look for more on the 11"...
Harlem Sörensen has released this hand-cast Spirit of OSU resin figure. Each 3" tall sculpture is handmade, hand painted, and hand numbered by the designer. (Yeah...it's a hand) The figure can be purchased from Storenvy for $20.00 each. In martial arts, this is of the essence. It refers to determination, perseverance and abnegation. If the […]

GENDERBENT LARA CROFT COSPLAY
Genderbending cosplay is nothing new, we see it all the time. Usually it’s hot chicks dressed as sluttier versions of male characters, but we rarely see manly-men, like Dr. Teng above, dressed as scantily-clad lady characters.
I’d actually kind of like to see this idea pushed all the way to the opposite end of the spectrum — like dudes cosplaying as super suave and macho versions of half-nekkid chicks. I wonder if the character’s would even still be recognizable.

Say what you will about Dennis Rodman. He's weird to say the least. Even in his current notoriety for being the failed hope for change in North Korea, he'll still be mostly remembered as that guy with the crazy hair from the 1990s. Newcomer to the 1/6 industry, Storm Collectibles, doesn't remember him as one of the greatest players and rebounders in NBA history, but rather as just that crazy guy from the 1990s.
The company has decided to make their first 1/6 figure release of Dennis Rodman in his various outfits and appearances. While none of these looks were found on the court, you remember the antics. You remember the various hair. While most other companies would make each outfit and hair style into their own variant release, Storm Collectibles has included them all in one release. You will get 10 interchangeable hair styles, two heads, four outfits, 11 hands, and a pair of sunglasses. If you order the deluxe version, you'll get an extra body and head, featuring Rodman in makeup, to display as bad as you want him to be.
For a first effort from a company, I have to say they did a great job on the sculpt. The likeness is impeccable, as I already want to punch Rodman in the face. In all seriousness, the only thing that this release is lacking is an actual acknowledgment of his basketball career and a wedding dress. Granted, the wedding dress I can see as an exclusive down the line. If you are interested in The Worm, the standard version is $229.99 and the deluxe for $264.99. It's expected to ship at the end of the year, so you'll have some time to hope for peace in Korea.

Those delinquent Duck brothers Huey, Dewey, and Lewie are always up to no good. Seriously, don’t trust them. Graffiti by the illustrious Combo.
Miniatures gaming has always been a great way to pair self-expression with great gaming experiences. Now a new Kickstarter campaign aims to go a bit further in terms of customization with their Mech Maker app.
Conversions and kitbashes aren't new ideas for miniatures enthusiasts, but Mech Maker will allow you to make them easily with an iOS app. You can build a mini out of a smorgasbord of available parts, turn them into real products through the magic of 3D printing, and even make up your own games and rules for them.
Thanks to YouTuber baltmatrix who has posted a video review of the the Transformers: Age of Extinction Galvatron voyager class figure. This is the one a lot of fans have been wondering about. Get the scoop on the figure for this strange character who's role is yet to be revealed in the movie. See his robot and very cool alternate truck mode for all the details on the figure after the jump.

Thanks to Ben @Peugh on Twitter who has posted a some new out of box images of the Transformers Age of Extinction Hound voyager class figure.
