“Jason V’ found it in Montana – thanks for the nice photos! There was originally a listing for a 20-pack called ‘Radiator Springs to the Rescue” with 20 CARS. I had a feeling it was too big for a retailer to fit on the shelf – not size wise but price wise, it would’ve had [...]

I thought I posted this video but couldn’t find it so if it’s a respawn – sorry – enjoy anyway. Otherwise, it’s new to you. And yes, I think if that guy complains about his job, someone will punch him with a real brick. Tweet This Post
The Designer Toy Awards Winners were announced this past Saturday at a reception during New York Comic Con. (Unfortunately, I was unable to attend due to injuring my ankle that day) The winners were broken down into Board Voted and Community Voted categories. And with every awards announcement, I'm sure there will be room for [...]
Albotas Exclusive: It’s the End of Ninja of the Month as We Know It, and I Feel Fine
Shawn Smith from Shawnimals was awesome enough to do an interview with Albotas during NYCC 2012. One piece of news that came up was that 2012 will be the final year of Shawnimals’ Ninja of the Month series. So why do I feel fine? Shawn assures us that something even better is on the way. Stay tuned for more Shawnimals news and keep an eye out for our interview with Shawn. And be sure to grab the last few Ninjas of the Month!
Poe Ghostal here. We’re trying something new for this review – what I’m calling “Sculptor’s Commentary” (though I reserve the right to change it to, say, “Designer’s Commentary” depending on who’s doing the commenting). The Boomer was sculpted by Jason Frailey, who also sculpted the Evil Dead II Henrietta as well as the super-popular new Glyos-compatible [...]
We all know Cardboard could have it’s own category on Pinterest: making things out of recyclables is such a hot topic. But the problem for little kids is finding ways to let them to do it on their own. Especially at my house, where Birdie’s independent streak is a mile-wide and 10 miles high, but [...]

Undeniable. This was my move in high school …* Good luck! * Yes, that guy in the back walking to the water fountain – uncanny how much it looked like me. Tweet This Post
On Thursday October 18th 2012, Taylored Curiosities will be releasing the Halloween Seedlings. As you can see from the photos, this version is a creme color that glows blue in the dark. These are limited to 6 pieces priced at £12.00 (around $20.00) each. And each one will be accompanied by a little pouch of [...]
Amazon Japan follows with more listings of MP-10B Black Convoy. The smaller, better articulated MP-10 mold gets the popular Nemesis prime recolor that we have come to know. The figure will not include a trailer of roller accessories this time, hopefully a discounted price will reflect that. Look for the Transformers Masterpiece MP-10B Black Convoy be released next March 30, 2013. See the images now for the full details.
Following on the previous report, Planet X have release a preview images for Project Genesis that shows a bit of the prototype figure for what is believed to be a NOT Omega Supreme action figure that pays homage to the G1 character in a whole new way. Also included are some CGI mock-ups of the alternate mode that are kind of hard to make out the figure in. Stay tuned for more details on Project Genesis as they are available.
Kidrobot 10th Anniversary Party [Video Recap]
We had the pleasure of hitting up the Kidrobot X even at the NYC store this past weekend and it was all kinds of bananas. You had to be invited to attend, so imagine our bummed-outness when we weren’t on the list. We were all like “Don’t you know who we are? Albotas.com, bitches! Represent!” And then the Kidrobot peeps were like “Oh shit, you guys are the dopeness! Come on in!”
Or something like that, only way more polite and dignified. Because we’re gentlemen.
There were tons of toys and customs on display, free drinks flowed throughout the night, the DJ played on as an ever-growing crowd of dancers formed downstairs, and there were even free waffles from the tastiest waffle truck I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating at!
Huge thanks to Lisa at KidrobotNY and the rest of Kidrobot for the great time and letting us slip past the velvet rope. For everyone else who couldn’t make it, enjoy the video below.
It’s almost time for Halloween which means there will be candy a plenty. That also means that we need to be sure to keep our kids mouths healthy. Some fun products that we received to review but also that we use in our home include the Oral-B Stages Floss – Kids Flossers. Oral-B Stages Flossers... [Continue Reading]

First of all, she's just in time for Halloween. Secondly, there's a cool video featuring Bill Greening discussing the design and creation of the doll. Thunder, lightning and wind along with eerie music punctuate the video. A great mock-up of a haunted room shows the doll in all of her dead splendor.
In reality, the doll is just another 11.5" semi-articulated piece of vinyl (what else is new?) that may or may not arrive looking like the promo sans haunted house and music.
The minute I saw her she reminded me of Tonner's Galadriel doll.
She also resembled another Tonner doll that was a centerpiece at the 2010 Halloween Convention. This doll was called "Welcome to the Here-after."
Tonner's Ghost of Christmas Past was a unique rendition of a ghost. The fashion is fabulous, detailed and a huge cut above the stereotypical ghost outfits.
So if you are morose over missing out on the ho-hum Barbie Ghost and you wish to indulge your morbid tastes, have a look at these ghost dolls.

Isn't Evangeline Ghastly dead? They're not saying but if you read her back story,* she's must be. She doesn't know she's dead...
*(Inspired by Tim Burton’s The Corpse Bride, The Addams Family, and even Barbra Streisand, Evangeline comes to you straight from the attic of Barkley Manor located in Ipswich, England, across from the local cemetery.)
