Cross holiday gift shopping off your list early this year with Totsy.com! Their Holiday Toy Weekends kick off again on Thursday, October 25th, offering Melissa & Doug toys at unseasonably discounted prices. Just this week I found some adorable boots for 50% off on Totsy. This weekend is a huge sale of toys going on at Totsy and it’s a perfect... [Continue Reading]
Mike Egan has announced the newest release of his "Bones" figure in Cream and Brown. Standing approximately 8" tall, the cream colored Japan-made vinyl is hand-painted brown (and manufactured) by Luke Rook/Lullubell/Grody Shogun. This version is an edition of 40 pieces and runs $45.00 each. This run is exclusively available through Mike's shop.
Watch your back, Rudolph — the Mad Monster Party has begun! Released in 1967 by stop-motion magnates Rankin-Bass, Mad Monster Party is the horror buff’s bedtime story, the Halloween equivalent of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and a benchmark in the grand tradition of stop-motion animation. Now, 45 years later, Diamond Sleect Toys is giving the [...]
During Kotobukiya's Hobby Exhibition early last week, we took a look at an upcoming plamo version of the ever-adorable Yotsuba. Certainly a big draw for fans, collectors will be glad to know she's now up for pre-orders! As expected from such a kit, she's laden down with no shortage of accessories suitable for any scene needed.
You'll be able to pose her with a stuffed bear, bubble wand, cardboard box, and more, and a number of additional facial expressions looks to provide quite a few options to suit your--or Yotsuba's--mood. While I can't say I've too familiar with the source material, it's hard to be unaware of Yotsuba's popularity. Koto looks to have made a model that any fan will want to get their hands on, and at a price of only ¥3,000, preparing for her March release should be an easy task for those interested.
It's been a while since we last saw a Native figure, hasn't it? If you've never seen a Native figure, just know that they specialize in naked ladies. Anyway, their latest work, the 1/7-scale Sexual Police, is up for pre-order. The name pretty much says it all. She's a police officer and she's bent over to show off her goods.
If you're a perv like me, you'll like this. Not counting the subject matter, Native makes pretty high-end figures, so it mostly comes down to a matter of taste and availability. I can say that in terms of explicitness, there's definitely more anatomical detail than a Barbie doll but Native's stuff isn't super-graphic (usually).
As far as availability, this is a Native online store exclusive, but you can also try going through a proxy service. The MSRP is ¥9,000 and the figure will be out in April 2013.

The new seasonal custom for Patient No.6 has been revealed. The November 6th Patient No.6 will - somewhat surprisingly - not be released on November 6th. They're available right now (26 pieces) for $76.00 each. Every 7.5" tall handmade figure will include medical history with your name plus a gift card.

Kuso Vinyl will be at DesignerCon in booth #330, and one of the things they're bringing this year is a new Kusopon All Star bank, Ponburger. If you haven't guessed by now, it's KusoPop mascot Kusopon as a hamburger. The vinyl bank stands about 6 inches tall, which is a pretty decent size and should hold quite a bit of coin.
If you want to pick one up at DCon, Ponburger will set you back US$25. There's only 300 of these, too. It's a nice little take on the Kusopon design; I've always thought he kind of looked like a burger. What do you think?

My name is Jenny Smith and I am a Plush Artist from Los Angeles. I have been making plush for over a year and before that I was making traditional teddy bears for a long time! I found that as a teddy bear artist, I was one of the youngest(read hippest) and I never quite fit into their subculture, so I took my teddy bear skills and now I am designing and handmaking my own plush.
I am originally from Canada(Vancouver, B.C.) but I have been in West Hollywood for almost two years now and I am loving it. I don't have to shovel my driveway anymore!
My plush are currently for sale at the L.A. MOCA and at Crompton Collective in Worcester, MA. I also do big craft shows here in L.A. and I have an online shop.
I love making plush and I feel that it was something that I am meant to do, as it fulfills my creative spirit. If I am not crafting, I don't feel like I am fully living. My friends that have known me since I was a child are not surprised at this path that I have taken. They know that it suits me.
Today, I am dealing with the rejection of not getting into the holiday craft show that I wanted to be in. I got into one, but not both of the ones that I had chosen. I keep telling myself that it's their loss and that it's a reason to pursue other avenues this holiday season, such as a few retail shops that would like to sell my softies, and some smaller craft sales.
Ben rejoins George and Ayleen for Toy Break Episode 237: Benthulu. This week, they celebrate an early Halloween and rehash what went down at NYCC. Oh...and they look at some toys, including Monster Toytem, Johnny the Skull, and much more.
