And while I noticed this product on display via images of Star Wars Day Bandung (for which I was a Blog/Media Sponsor for), I did not know what exactly it was actually, until Yudi aka The Yellow Dino passed it to me (when he was here for STGCC). It was actually a package for crackers/chips, featuring a design of a spaceship and produced by the brand "Maicih" - who was one of the sponsors for
Well, if you’re super psyched about the plastic “stunt CARS” series, here’s the accompanying playset … “Dinoco plays an important role in Disney•Pixar Cars, providing fuel for characters and sponsoring races like the iconic Piston Cup. Now, it’s time to decide who is the most extreme at the world stunt show championships. Four stunt areas [...]
The Yellow Dino has lent his design talents to a Toyota Yaris Signal Kustom for a car show in Jakarta, and has been crowned "King of Yaris Jakarta 2012"! (And the Yellow Dino Race Queen suit looks pretty nifty too lol) Check out the images posted here of the vehicle, including the car loading and interior shots below. I remember when Yudi was here in Singapore, he was also busy with the
A while back, it was announced that The Super Suck Up was coming to DesignerCon, and that a number of artists would be lending their skills to customizing some Suckadelic figures. So, just about two months out from the show, where do they all stand? Some are only being teased, while others appear to be finished, and there's a fair amount of diversity in the designs!
In our gallery, you'll find the card art and additional shots of Sucklord and Suckpeg figures from: Ferg (who's doing a fellow named Zorcho the Burner); October Toys (one of the two Suckpegs, based on Silver Surfer); Luke Chueh (with a bear-headed Sucklord figure); Onell Design (doing a simpler colorway); Buff Monster (putting his ice cream monster's head on a Sucklord body); Paul Kaiju (with a kaiju-style paintjob on a Sucklord figure); and the two featured in the header, a Sucklord from DrilOne and a Princess Leia Suckpeg from Scott Tolleson.
I was rather shocked to discover recently that one of my best friends, who has a relatively high-profile reputation in the toy reviewing community but will otherwise remain nameless, had never heard of X-Entertainment.com. Created by Matt Caracappa around the turn of the century, X-E is the grandaddy of all geek-themed websites (Matt often referred [...]
Olly The Little White Van is now available in die-cast form, from Corgi.
There had been some speculation that Takara Tomy wouldn't be getting the new Transformers: Fall of Cybertron figures for Japanese release. After all, the game isn't being released there and the Shockwave figure has already been announced for a Transformers: Prime release. As it turns out, just like the bots themselves things can change pretty quickly.
Takara Tomy is now accepting pre-orders for their version of TF:FoC Optimus Prime and Jazz. While they use the same molds as the the Hasbro releases they feature a more complex paint scheme than their Hasbro counterparts including a metallic shine. However they also have a price to match as both figures will retail for around ¥2,800 each and will kick off a new Transformers Generations line launching in December. Optimus Prime is being designated TG01 and Jazz will be TG02. Don't be surprised is the next set in the series is the Combaticons.
I admit, I'm considering paying the extra for the Takara Tomy versions, they just look so good! Jazz especially looks like an entirely different figure. That December release is a little troubling, though. So much good stuff coming out during the holidays...
Today I have the privilege of sharing a video that is near and dear to my heart. Birdie’s favorite school – White Bear Montessori School – has just released a really beautiful video that shows some of the sweetest parts of being in a Montessori environment. There’s a sort of calmness and dedication from the [...]
The Doctor has a big, varied collection of toys, mostly action figures in the 6″-7″ scale, mostly licensed characters. As discussed before, part of the appeal of collecting is that I get to have all of my favorite characters in their own universe, a universe in which He-Man can fight the T-Rex from Jurassic Park with Gandalf, [...]
Vinyl Thoughts 3 is opening later this week, featuring work from a number of artists themed around characters we know and love. In fact, the artist list has grown exponentially, now featuring artists like Jason Chalker, NREAZON and Davidkraig, whose respective works you'll find in our gallery as exclusive previews! Jason has done a Munny of Space Kook (along with matching print), Davidkraid chose Old Man Logan for his custom and NREAZON has picked Astro Boy for her piece.
But that's not all. Scott Kinnebrew has sent us a video montage teasing his 15 (!!!!!) new pieces for the show. He's included clips that directly reference each piece he did; see if you can spot them all!
After the jump, you'll also find a full artist list for the show as it's grown to be quite large. Stop by the show on Sept. 13 if you're able to!

Street Fighter Canvas Paintings By Pierre Bäckman
These acrylic paintings by Mr. Bäckman (a.k.a slusk666) feature the World Warriors of Street Fighter II in a simplified, silhouetted color pallet that looks pretty darn classy. Check out his blog for more 8-bit paintings, but you might want to have a Google Translator plugin installed in your browser because it’s entirely in Swedish.
I stumbled across an old report on ABCNews.com is reporting who two of the geniuses that swap out inexpensive toys from its box and replace it with an expensive ones so they can get a scan of a cheap toy rather than pay for the more expensive one. Over $2 Million stolen this way. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/business/2012/08/mom-son-charged-with-2m-toy-thefts/ [...]

YouTube, SoundCloud, Skype, And Apple As Game Boy Carts
These custom carts by 3liter are pretty awesome, but it would have been a blajillion times more awesome if YouTube and Skype were Game Boy Camera carts. Just sayin’.

Libya managed to throw off the shackles of Moammar Gadhafi … er, is this progress? NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Cinnabon has opened a bakery-cafe in downtown Tripoli, making it the first U.S. franchise to enter Libya. I think Patrick Henry said, “Give me Liberty and a 6-pack with butter on top.” They are also getting a [...]

Sony RX1 Camera Leaked
The RX1 fits a full frame sensor in a super tiny body with 35mm, f/2.0 lens and pop-up flash. The only downsides are the unchangeable fixed lens and close to $3,000 price tag.
