Laura Mas a.k.a. Okokume is and artist based out of Barcelona. After participating in the project "TOY'Z by FLS" for SWAB Barcelona International Contemporany Art Fair, she has created five 8" Qee designs. Each design will be limited to 10 pieces and will be produced on demand until that number is reached or the edition [...]
OMG!!! I love these new Crowded Teeth plushies!! Designed exclusively for The Land of Nod and available online. I need them all, but especially the huggable panda! Filed under: plush Tagged: Crowded Teeth, Crowded Teeth plush, The Land of Nod
Is it Madoka day or something? Well, at least it's not Ultimate Madoka? Kotobukiya's second entry into their new Cu-poche poseable line of super deformed figures is now available for pre-order.
Just like the figure lines it is competing against, the 110mm tall Cu-poche Madoka will include different faces and hands but will only come with one accessories. On the plus side, she'll also come with Kyubey. The figure will also offer a little more over other lines with the bendable joints allowing you to do a little more with your poses.
Cu-poche Madoka is retailing for ¥3,800 and will be available in April, 2013. Is anyone interested in this new line by Kotobukiya?
Matty Collector has opened pre-orders for its new Castle Grayskull. While I still have mixed feelings about the castle after seeing its specs at NYCC (mostly in regards to the US$250 price tag), I imagine for many people pre-ordering this approximately 25-inch tall display piece (made specifically to suit the Masters of the Universe Classics line) may have been a no-brainer.
Pre-orders will run from today until November 10th when, if Mattel's minimum goal hasn't been reached, the product will be canceled (no refunds will need to be issued because the money won't be collected until around a month before the product would actually ship). However, should the goal be achieved, pre-orders period will conclude on January 3rd.
While US$250 seems like a fair deal of money, I imagine that it's one of those collectible items that may gain value down the road. Anybody planning on picking this one up? Also, be sure to check out the vintage commercial for the original Castle Grayskull play-set after the jump then remember that this one will be quite a bit larger.
[ Pre-order at Matty Collector ]
Twenty-five inches tall, 26 inches wide and 28 inches deep and based on the sculpt of the original 1981 prototype, Castle Grayskull is now available for pre-order on MattyCollector.com. If the minimum goal is reached by November 10, Castle Grayskull will go into production for a 2013 release, becoming the largest, most feature-rich MOTUC item ever produced! If you pre-order, you will not be charged until the castle ships sometime in late 2013, so you've got time to save up the 250 beans this one sets you back. For a complete list of features (and to pre-order) check out MattyCollector.com.
Thanks to Takara Tomy toy designer, TF YUKI's twitter feed we have some new images show the array of Transformers United EX sets that are coming our way. Get a look at the EX-03 Roadmaster Prime Mode, EX-04 Grimmaster Prime Mode, EX-05 Racemaster Prime Mode, and Dozermaster vs. Airmaster set shown in and out of the boxes. These figures are repaints of the Transformers Power Core Combiners line. View these images to see the new colors schemes now.
It wouldn't be a complete tour of the Kotobukiya booth at NYCC without highlighting some of the Star Wars-related merchandise they had on display! And of course, that means the gorgeous upcoming Star Wars Bishoujo Jaina Solo statue along with a few lovely-looking droids.
Jaina has some lovely details to her figure, and going by Brian's pictures here her clothing looks so very realistic! Her release is slated for November this year, so fans don't have long at all to wait for this beauty.
As for the Astromechs, you'll see a nice variety here including R2-Q5 (black), R2-R9 (red), R2-C4 (yellow), and R2-M5 (white), which are all set for Summer 2013 releases.
Check out the gallery for pictures of all I've mentioned above.
When the Amazon Japan site listed the Transformers G1 Encore 23A Fortress Maximus re-issue, today. Someone asked if the "A" meant there could be more than one Fort Max to be offered? It occurred to me the answer is quite likely they will. IF Takara follows their usual path. It may be a fair guess the "A" is Animation colors. This is indicated on the current Encore #20A release for Devastator. There could also be a possible Metallic "M" version as Grand Max. And, even a Black "B" version as Brave Max. Note, this entirely speculation based on how Takara have done things in the past. What do you think about Takara doing more than one For Max?
If you haven't heard about Angry Birds Star Wars...it's combining the most popular mobile game with the most popular Sci-Fi license. And now you can combine both of them with Funko for their Angry Birds Star Wars Wacky Wobbler series. The trio of bobble-heads (Luke X-Wing Bird, Darth Vader Pig, and Stormtrooper Pig) will be [...]
As promised, BigBadToyStore have released a new video preview for the Dark Energon Transformers Prime Optimus Prime and Megatron voyager class action figures. The Dark Energon toys are a BBTS Exclusive, here's a chance to get a preview of the toys that are available this winter for pre-order at bigbadtoystore.com. Watch the video now for more details on Transformers Prime Dark Energon Optimus Prime and Megatron.
Plex has been pretty steadily adding entries to their D.P.C.F. line, even going as far as adding in the license to Naruto characters. The man himself is the first prototype which was shown, and Emerje already wrote recently about the possibility we'll also be seeing Sakura, Sasuke and Kakashi in figure form in the future. For today though, we've got updated images of Naruto, now colored! He looks fantastic. Seriously, this is a love letter to all Naruto fans everywhere, old and new. His price is set at ¥7,600.
As for Chopper, he's looking mighty noble and adorable. Even though he's 1/7-scale, being a small character he's small enough that the price is only ¥3,500. His short stature doesn't indicate any detail was spared in the design though, as you'll note in the gallery. His helmet appears to be moveable, too.
Both of these figures are slated for release in December so they should really be going up for pre-order soon. I only dropped in five pictures per figure in our gallery, so for a full look see Plex's listings (Naruto | Chopper).
It’s not often that my family enjoys a meal while we’re out and about but when we do we like to eat as fresh as possible. One thing I personally love is a fresh turkey sandwich. Especially during the long fall and winter months I crave turkey. There’s just nothing quite like a good turkey... [Continue Reading]

Art Whino's booth Notably, the one and only J*RYU was at the booth, with some interesting new customs to boot. It's not just the new little Saplings, like the lounging fellow up there: J*RYU brought some new creatures that are wrapped around glass bottles to the show, each a one-off piece. In fact, he was using one of them during a painting session on Sunday, so they look nice and have some utility!
Also at the booth were custom pieces from Josh Taylor, who brought with him the rare Dinglinger's Owl. A rare creature indeed, each owl comes with a box and looks adorable with those big ol' eyes. Josh also had some Demons on display and one very big Demon Hunter ready to strike them down; check out the gallery for all those photos!
Pierre Rouzier has dropped some new pieces just in time for Halloween. His latest edition of Cybermite figures - appropriately dubbed "Fright'Mite" - is limited to five individually hand cast and painted polystone resin figures. That includes CreepyHollw 'Mite, Bridal'Mite, Punkin'Mite, Hello-o-Mite, and Thriller'Mite. Each 'Mite has a unique paint treatments (GID, LED lighting, hand [...]
