Full-Color Edition of Best-Seller Covers LEGO Building Techniques San Francisco, CA, October 10, 2012—When it comes to LEGO building, the possibilities are nearly endless. That’s an exciting prospect but also a daunting one. Where do you start? How do you build? To help LEGO fans of all ages make the leap from following canned [...]
Toys "R" Us will open pop-up stores in 24 Macy's stores and The Children's Place will sell merchandise at Sam's Club.
DC Collectibles has started to release some news of items they will be showing this weekend at New York Comic Con. First up is the Frank Miller Superman from their “Man of Steel” statue line. This is a product we told you about back in July when DCC showed it to SDCC press, but no [...]
So, this morning, I posted about the figures Good Smile would have at their NYCC booth for display and sale. And that last sentence ... yes, I was tipping my hand a bit (nice guess, Gekokujou). But now, we've got the OK from Good Smile to reveal the exclusives for NYCC!
The exclusives are, in fact ... past exclusives! It's a chance to get old favorites again, particularly the following:
They'll all be on sale, as well: check the gallery for a price list (as posted on the Good Smile U.S. Tumblr) and we'll let you know what else might turn up at the booth Thursday!
Having started sculpting and casting resin toys last year, making the Sea-Borgs has been a learning experience and I've made a lot of mistakes along the way. There have been plenty of bad castings, colors that didn't quite work, failed paint tests and more. All of these "lessons" have added up over the months to [...]
We've already shown you four of the twelve artists (check back here and here for a refresher) who will be taking part in Cavey's American Cousins plush show, the first exhibit for Holly Stanway's roly-poly plush to be hosted on U.S. shores. This time around, I'll be revealing two more artists who have customized Cavey toys for the November 10 show, Frank Kozik and DrilOne.
Frank's plush looks shockingly similar to his hedgehog Heathrow (here's a post on its holiday version). I definitely wouldn't mind seeing a plush of that spiny fellow. DrilOne's round dude is bit more mysterious. I see some blood, determined eyes, faux leather, and the numbers 0 and 6. I'll be excited to see the entire piece and get a better, more cohesive idea of the custom.
Cavey's American Cousins pop-up art show will take place for one night (Saturday, November 10) in Los Angeles at the Cat and Fiddle Pub. Each custom piece on display at the event will up for auction beginning on November 3 and ending on November 10. More information about the event and auction can be found at Holly's Cavey blog.
I would loooooove to be in Seattle for the opening of the Plush You! art show at Schmancy Toys this Friday night at 5pm, but no such luck for me this year. My plush will just have to enjoy the opening for me, I guess. ;D
Tformers is reporting live from NYCC 2012 with our first looks at the Transformers Beast Hunters - PREDAKING!!! Stay tuned for news and images coming now! Get a look at what appears to just one figure on display, with a presentation pedistal and the new logo reveal for the series. The robot mode and more news will be revealed in the special press previre panel that will take place soon.
Just because Summer is over, doesn’t mean you can’t get a good BBQ goin! Taking place in Texas next week is the Big Android BBQ! A spot for all you tech and Android enthusiasts. Rather than the Red edition released at SDCC, this drop features a pleasant sky blue colored...
And we thought myplasticheart was done with their NYCC Exclusives. We were wrong, as seen above and below are some goodies coming from Healey Made. Take a look at the Natives Black Collar Edition, which stands 4” tall in one-off exclusive colors for $65 each. Then we have the Hex...
Tony aka BOS ONE created this Biggie Smalls inspired toy for the Streets of Beige blog. The 7.5" tall figure is made of Sculpey, wood and sponge. And here is how the artist describes his Christopher Wallace handmade sculpt... 'Here is my latest toy simply titled, 'Christopher Wallace'. It is a tribute to the greatest [...]
Hasbro won’t have a booth this year at NYCC, but right now they are having a “Preview Night” press only event. Cesar our man on the inside is sending pictures back to us! First up we have a figure of the new armor from Iron Man III Then we have a look at Marvel [...]
The Artist Series Raar! continues as Dynamite Rex shares the newest artist in the series, Scott Tolleson with his Theo figure. This Nerd-a-Saures-Rex comes complete with thick rimmed spectacles and brightly tailored suit. So far we have Gary Ham, Martin Hsu, and Jerome Lu in this mix (Seen HERE &...
I don’t know about some of you, but the newest Original Fake Kaws Astro Boy Companion looks pretty darn awesome to me! I dig the Kaws and I dig the Astro Boy, so why not! It’s only been a few months since the Kaws Resting Companion released and now we...
Just in is more Transformers news from the NYCC 2012 Press Preview going on tonight in New York City. We have some images here of the Prime and BotShots figures display at the event. Not a whole lot new to show just yet. Keep it dialed here for more news and updates all week long from NYCC as is happens.
Erick Scarecrow Dropping A Butt-ton Of Freshness At NYCC
Feast your eyes on the glory above. Erick Scarecrow will be hauling a massive artillery of limited edition pieces with him to New York Comic Con this weekend. If you’re serious about designer toys and plan on hitting up NYCC this weekend, don’t sleep! Be sure to stop by the ESC-Toy LTD. booth #3015 for more hotness than you can handle!
Check out the full price list here.
Thanks to Xterry over at TFW who has shared some images of the Transformers Fall of Cybertron Starscream action figure prototype. We first saw this guy at SDCC 2012. The Generations figure that is shown in robot, a Gerwalk-type mode, and his alternate Cybertronian jet mode is looking pretty true to his game form. Look for this figure to be out in March of 2013. Check out the images of the toy now for more details.
This year's New York Comic-Con begins tomorrow and Anthony Pomposello and Rich Alot are there to leave no fan behind! While we will be publishing full stories and photo galleries, we also will make sure to get you quick bits of news as soon as possible. Case in point, the three images linked above of Hasbro's upcoming Hope Phoenix, Black Panther, and Hawkeye Marvel Legends figures. Click the thumbnails above for a closer look and stay tuned for detailed shots of all three and everything else revealed at the Hasbro gathering this evening.
blogLIFE: The Perks Of Being A Semi-Popular Geek Lifestyle Blogger
Sometimes brands want to reach a certain audience. Depending on how specific the audience is, big brands occasionally turn to smaller blogs for help. For the past year I’ve been working as a brand ambassador for Virgin Mobile doing simple things like sharing tweets on twitter, Facebook posts, and the occasional write-up on Albotas.com.
Virgin invited myself and 24 other bloggers (dubbed the Virgin Mobile 25) to Maryland for their annual FreeFest music festival, a free day-long music fest that asks attendees to donate at least $10 to The RE*Generation, Virgin Mobile’s initiative to address youth homelessness.
It’s a fantastic cause, and the lineup was awesome. I had the pleasure of being part of last year’s VM25 and I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this year kicked last year’s ass to the moon and back. Incredible experience. Incredible people. Thank you Virgin Mobile and Mekanism for bringing me on board.
[blogLIFE is a series of short vlogumentaries told from the perspective of Albotas.com founder Robby “brownkidd” Weiss as he documents his quest to find the American dream accross the wild frontier known as the blogosphere. Take a peek behind the curtain and witness the inner workings, occasional perks, and constant struggles associated with running a semi-popular geek lifestyle blog.]
