- a light pink stitch across the nose (you can see where this might have been if you look closely at his nose)
- an airbrushed belly button (you can see the slight remains of this right in the middle of his stomach)
- when new, lots of facial airbrushing (lost to love and time)
- a raised script ear button (lost to love and time)
- a white fabric "US Zone" tag sewn in their arm seam (according to family history, was present when found on the street)
- large hands that are proportionally large for her chubby arms and don't have the break at the wrist (yes!)
- short, plump legs and belly (yes!)
- a small booklet about Jackie and Steiff (lost to love and time)

- First, there's the statue of Axe, which will run you US$249 and is limited to 1,000 pieces. The 11-inch-high, 4-pound coldcast statue comes pretty intricately detailed.
- For those who like replicas, Weta has you covered, too. There's the Butterfly Sword replica for US$249 that's a full 28 inches long and comes cast in urethane that's been hand-painted to look like you could slice someone in two with it.
- Not big enough? Then try the Demon Edge Sword on for size! A full 50.8 inches long, this urethane bad-boy weighs more than the Axe coldcast statue (4.2 pounds) and comes ready to be displayed on your wall. Or held in your hands as you stare at it. It'll set you back US$299.
- Or, for those of you wanting to strike a more defensive pose, there's the Vanguard Shield, also US$299. Measuring 26 inches by 23 inches and weighing in at 8 pounds, it is crafted from urethane and fiberglass, then detailed and painted to look like the real thing. It also comes with a wall bracket for display purposes.

For a character that hasn’t had more than a couple of outings in the Star Wars Vintage Collection by Hasbro, Darth Vader is certainly one that I didn’t feel the need to get once again. However, the latest Darth Vader (VC93) does represent a fairly needed update.
Fab.com has some fun subway-transit-the L signs … (sign in or sign up to view). Even custom ones where you can decide what you want on the sign to make your own stop … Tweet This Post
Here are some photos sent in by a Bat-Blog Fan named Martyn who is a serious Batman Fanatic. In fact, he's also a Toy Collector and that's the focus of these pics. The ones up above are mostly Toys and Collectibles. There's a great selection of both new and vintage, fun stuff! Then, the pics down below are his Action Figures. This is cool stuff and I appreciate him sharing this. It's always great to see what other people have. ( Thanks Martyn )
Here's a quick post to share some amazing new BATMAN Products that will be coming out later this year in November. Here are some BATMAN COOKIE JARS produced by Westland Giftware. One of them is shaped like a Large Bust Statue of the Dark Knight then the other one is a very cool Vintage-Style Batmobile. Yes, I love this car because it reminds me of the Vehicle from the 1980's Super Powers Action Figure toy line by Kenner!
Here's a video clip from a recent episode of DC Nation ( Cartoon Network ) where they featured a very stylized version of Batman called, "Bat Man of Shanghai". The animation is very excellent & it's an interesting variation on the character. I especially like how they did the BANE Villain, very cool!!
The "Dodi Blackout" print is a 3 series silkscreen print, limited to 15 piece edition variable of each colorway. This is an STGCC exclusive for Vinyl On Vinyl booth C24. Grab it quick, and as well the artist Gabriel Tiongson is in town, so this would be the perfect time to get him autographing the prints!
He stands about 6 1/2 inches from tip of ear to foot. My sister tells me that he had a tag on him when found that said "Made in Germany." He has 5 joints, and if I recall correctly, he used to squeak when pressed.
I am not concerned on his worth, because to me he is priceless and has been my companion for 58 years. I just want to know, after all these years, if he is a Steiff, and if so his year.
One common way to grade you action figures is to use the C-scale. There are several different levels to the C-scale and it usually refers to the card more than the actual figure. When you are grading and your card receives a good grade it is more than likely that your action figure is going
I Heart Guts recently released the final five huge plush anthropomorphized organs needed to round out their 12 piece set. The new releases, Big Bladder, Loud Lungs, Large Liver, Super Stomach, and Spectacular Spleen, were introduced in August at the New York International Gift Show. The 12 plushes in the giant organ set cost US$20 each while the smaller versions cost between US$16 to US$14 each.
The simple and colorful designs of these plushes manage to look like the organ they personify yet not so much as to gross you out. In fact, they look rather cuddly, don't they? And, with this giant organ series, there is even more plush to hug! Other plushes in this series include: Big Brain (my personal favorite), Colossal Kidney, Humongous Heart, Huge Uterus, Gigantic Gallblader, Powerful Pancreas, and Immense Intestine. Each one has its own humorous profile and comes with a illustrated booklet telling you all about the organ you chose. Who knew anatomy could be so cute?
Check out the gallery to get a better look at the new plushes and head on over to I Heart Guts' online shop to purchase your own!
Cartoon Network's Thundercats Art Director Dan Norton has officially announced that the series has ended. Norton goes on to say: "Let me just say, nobody is working on ThunderCats. It would take years to get it back on tv if we started today. Draw your own conclusion. I love you guys and thank you for all the support". While the show and toyline were fun to watch and collect, we will surely miss this television series.

You might remember our earlier post on the Dota 2 license being picked up by Weta for collectibles, and now, all of that first wave is available for pre-order! But what does that include? Check out the four items listed on the Weta Limited store:
Everything is shipping in the second quarter (April to June) of 2013. Also, in news that will shock no one, buying any of these items gets you an exclusive Dota 2 in-game item, something Valve is probably going to keep doing in the future, so get used to it.

If there was any indication of how busy my time at STGCC Day One was, it would simply have to be the fact that I had remained in one single spot - specifically at the 2meters by 2 meters area of my booth F51 - for the duration of the convention day! Folks were buying toys, folks were stopping by to say hi, friends popped by for support, old friends gathered, i had essentially talked (near)
