If you missed out on the Kickstarter project that brought Monster Factory's Mythicals series to (plush) life, they have made the range of six characters available to pre-order. Assumedly, you will likely get your plush after the Kickstarter folks get theirs, but if you're a fan of any of the characters...it'll be $45.00 to pre-order […]
When I saw the name of the character, Mademoiselle Jolie, I was happy for a brief moment. Then I read further to discover that it is not Elise Jolie, whose sculpt I adore, but Isha, whose sculpt I do not care for in this incarnation. Her lips are parted and her teeth are showing.
This is what Isha used to look like before they rehabbed her to look like everyone else. Pretty gorgeous, right?
Note: You can click on any picture to bring up a larger version.
Here is the new Isha. I think the teeth will be easy to cover.
She is called Ombres Poétique and will cost W Club members $150. plus postage.
I like platinum hair but hair bumps are so over. I think the first thing I saw after the teeth was the sweeping eye makeup. The jury is still out on that.
I like the lingerie.
She certainly looks dramatic but the more I look at the gown, the more the black lace trim looks over-scaled. It's not working. I hope the production doll uses a better trim.
We've seen this gown shape several times on FR dolls. Reinterpretations don't bother me. Three of the gowns pictured below are more or less successful designs. I will have to see the new one in person to be sure.
The only other Mme. Jolie that was produced was a OOAK auction doll at the HiFi convention several years ago. This is a picture by Rob Thompson found on his robsdolls.com website. I would have loved that hairstyle and gown! But then it would not be a OOAK for the person who bought it.
Maybe I can dye the gown.... it could be a quinceanera dress.
What do you think of this new Mme. Jolie?
In July, Hot Toys announced they would be producing a Back to the Future 1/6th scale Marty McFly Figure as part of their Movie Masterpiece line. The first photos of the Michael J Fox-replica Marty McFly figure was very impressive, but what was in the background of the photos got even more buzz: a 1/6th […] The post Cool Stuff: Hot Toys 1/6th Scale Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine ...
Joss Whedonites, this show is just for you! Joss Whedon x Gallery1988 opens at Gallery1988 (West) on September 5 with a reception from 7-10pm. Check out 100% Soft’s tribute to “Cabin in the Woods.” (Full disclosure: I haven’t seen this movie yet, but this piece makes me want to!) Here is Joey Spiotto‘s tribute to […]
It's times like this that I regret my high school didn't offer up a course in Portuguese. At first blush, I was pretty sure that Kat Killer (maybe that means something different in Portuguese) was producing hipster dolls that you could take on your urban foraging escapades. I was wrong. They've actually produced several plush […]
A Certain Scientific Railgun S introduced me to the mercenary team ITEM, and its two most prominent members (Mugino and Frenda) quickly became two of my favorite characters in the show. I was hoping to see some figures made, but hadn't had any such luck until now.
It turns out that Wave would be the company to make them - make them as Beach Queens to boot. Given how much time I've spent hating on Beach Queens, there's a certain irony in all this.
No, these aren't great representations of the characters. Mugino is a Level Five badass and Frenda is a borderline psychotic goth-loli character with lots of bombs, but none of that comes through in these. Oh well, beggars can't be choosers I guess. Both will set you back ¥6,200 and are set for February 2015.
ooh… myplasticheart has announced their first NYCC exclusive and it’s a nice one –Sylvan Yeti from Gary Ham and Pobber. The chilly Yeti is the 2nd colorway of Ham’s new Sylvan vinyl figure. Limited to just 50 pieces, the Sylvan Yeti will be available throught the convention for $75 from...
Amarillo, TX - Toys for Tots gives thousands of children Christmas presents each year, but now they find themselves in a bind.
The Danish toymaker Lego said revenue soared 11 percent in the first six months of 2014, mostly because of the success of “The Lego Movie.”

Kava (also known at its scientific name Piper Methysticum) made its way to the market trends and continues to reach and climb the hill. Why? Because Kava takes your relaxation seriously. When we say seriously, you are going to agree with that happy look in your eyes. What made Kava special? This crop also made […]
One of the changes introduced in the Halo 4 game was that the Grunt species, the Unggoy, got a new veteran rank called Imperials.
Alrighty folks! On Sunday, September 7th 3PM PST in the PK Store, Paul Kaiju will be releasing the Jinxman! This is a collaborative figure with RealxHead, using the RxH adult body, legs, and right arm with an original head and arm sculpted by PK. The following week PK will be...
