As we mentioned a few days ago, Luke Chueh has collaborated with the metal experts at Fully Visual on his first bronze sculpture, ‘Jack’. The new wall-mounted taxidermy style piece should immediately remind collectors of ‘Jacked’, Chueh’s beloved painting of a rogue rabbit who has unceremoniously removed (‘jacked’) an antelope’s...

Just when I've gotten over wiping the drool from my chapped-lips over the news+peek of Winson Ma's Transformers-custom for Cybertron Con 2012, he fills my inbox with an abundance of even-more drool-worthy studio snaps of his version of an arctic "Transforexplorer" from an Optimus Prime!"This is the first time invited by Hasbro to make a model of Transformer and I have added some Apexplorers
These little jewels are called Bugstas. They are hand crafted in resin by a German craftsman named Michael Krenzin (a.k.a. Bugshub), who paints every Bugsta by hand with a gloss finish and signs them all individually. Each Bugsta stands about four inches tall and comes in a wide variety of colors.
Michael Krenzin does an excellent job creating creepy and interesting creatures from his own custom figurines as well as Dunnys and making his own modified Lunartik Bubble Teas! If you like bugs and other crawlies I suggest you look at his blog (linked above).

Funny. Mika-tan must have heard me yesterday on Twitter when I brought up how I was on the fence for Max Factory's upcoming Luka Megurine Tony ver. figure. Her blog has been updated with a full preview of this upcoming Vocaloid character giving those like me a clearer look at this figure and helping us with that decision of whether to purchase her or not.
The 1/7-scale figure is beautiful figure. There's no doubt about that but I've always found Luka's outfit to be interesting and attractive. The pose definitely screams of idol and really fits Luka. I'm just glad she doesn't do any spine breaking twists or other ridiculous poses like the Miku Tony ver. figure. The mold is looking exceptional with the stretch marks on her top and dress, the hanging belt, and the shape and detail in the boots. The eyes are sharp and the smile is looking sweet. I like that her smile has a painted edge to bring it out more. Even the hands with the extended fingernails looks great.
I do have some complaints about the figure, though. The first being her face. I've always seen Luka as this older type and with a longer face but this version seems a little round. This could be because of the hair, though, which is my second complaint. With the way it's sculpted, it makes her head, again, look very round. I also don't like that they went with the clear PVC for it rather than a flat color. It stands out way too much on this figure almost like it's glowing.
Despite my complaints, it really is a beautiful figure overall and it's not often a Vocaloid character that's not Miku get a figure release like this. I was on the fence about this but after seeing this preview, I'm caving and pre-ordering her which begins March 8, 2012. Who else will be pre-ordering her and who would you like to see next? I'm sure the ladies are still waiting on Kaito. I for one would love to see the other mature looking character, Meiko. ... who I would also like to pair up with Kaito.

Transformers Prime is also listed as returning with new episodes but it was rather vague if it was just season two, or a brand-new season. We reached out to The Hub and have learned that it is indeed a brand-new third season! The number of episodes has not yet

Like, right now (at the time of writing). Seriously, go get 'er!
Pre-orders have just opened up for Alter's fabulous Kneesocks (of Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt) as of tonight! Her retail price is set at ¥7,800 and she's set to be let loose to the wild in July of this year. Can you handle her?
This post will be updated with more pre-order links as she pops up in other places. See also: gallery.

I wasn't the biggest of fans of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS but if there is one thing I enjoyed about the title, it's the design of the characters. Just like their rounder than normal eyes, the shape of their bodies seem to have a rounder shape to them which I like. This is the reason I found myself interested in ALTER's 1/7-scale Nanoha -Summer holiday- figure back in December (also because it's no longer the blasted loli version from the movie).
Now Nanoha's other half, Fate T. Harlaown, is getting ready for her summer holiday and is looking good. This one is not striking me as much as the Nanoha release did. With Nanoha, you had a interesting and different kind of pose but the leaner looking Fate is just standing there like any other swimwear figure we've seen before. It's actually disappointing that she couldn't be designed to have something more different that could also be used to dock with Nanoha. Really the only thing Fate has going for her here is her waving hair but we've seen hair like that pop up more and more.
ALTER's Fate -Summer holiday- figure may be a treat for Nanoha fans that want their heroines as their older versions but this figure isn't really something I would consider a good pick. Especially a follow up to their Nanoha release. However, if you love Fate that much or can't bare to see Nanoha without her girlfriend, you can pre-order her now for a retail price of ¥8,800. Look for Fate to start her summer holiday in July, 2012.
Need something unexpected for your more playful indoor spaces? Whether it’s playroom, nursery, or kitchen (see those apples?! ca-yute.) Herman Marie’s hand painted wooden plaques are a sweet dose of quirky. I think it’d be a perfect foil to break up a gallery wall of boring rectangular frames. For between $35 – $45, you too [...]
The Bobble Jug Filtering Water Bottle is a new design to an old concept, and the filter is now more effective than ever. Of course, you can’t just go filling your water bottle with puddle water, that’s still incredibly stupid and unsanitary, but your regular water will get things filtered out of it and your drink will taste more pure than ever! There are a couple of great colors that you can choose from, so you should be able to find ...
