Design Festa 60 was this past weekend, and Kaiju Korner was in attendance to get some photos and info for his blog. Yes, that is a frog in a mech; why do you ask? It's from a new-ish figure maker by the name of Painter-Net who had other aquatic figures on display, and the resin frog mech does indeed have joints. We also got a peek at some of my favorite sofubi pieces at the moment — Chima Group's dinosaurs — along with a new piece from Blobpus' Alice in Wonderland line, Gothic Jackalope.
Speaking of Alice, there were some Alice-themed figures from Kaijin as well. Pico Pico debuted a new sculpt named Fando, Uky Daydreamer showed off a new figure as well, and Max Toy Co. had some new mini-figures based off Negora and friends, along with flocked Kaiju Negora one-offs.
For the full rundown from Design Festa 60, be absolutely sure to go to Kaiju Korner. Andy has much more in his round-up, including figures from Dream Rockets, Kikkake, Marmit, Monster Factory, Nakayoshi, Rampage Toys and Fig Lab, Refreshment, Sunguts, TOUMA, and Yamomark. Also, be sure not to look at A.K. Production's gory figures if you've eaten anything in the last week. Yikes ...
As expected, the Lava Chaos Bunny did extremely well and sold out at this years Designer Con. If you are bummed you missed this release, fret not, as Joe Ledbetter and The Loyal Subjects will be releasing the original #2 Mr. Bunny colorway this Wednesday, November 14th at Noon PST....

Ian Ziobrowski and Sekure D have put together a series of blind-box Munnys and Dunnys featuring the most famous of the Mario brothers: Mario, Luigi and Wario. Sadly, Waluigi gets no love this time. According to Sekure D, he's used his "Codename: Unkown" style on the Munnys, each featuring one of the three characters and reminding me a bit of the Ultimate Warrior with their faces.
Meanwhile, Ian tackled the Dunnys and has apparently given them a partial Nugglife makeover. Yes, Mario's got himself a special mushroom, Luigi's lighting up and Wario is making a fortune off of it all. I love the Wario, though; just the expression Ian's got on his face is so predictably Wario.
All of these guys will be in Ian's shop, located on his website, starting Wednesday, Nov. 14, at noon Eastern (9 a.m. Pacific, 5 p.m GMT) for US$100 each. It's the first — but not the last — collaboration between the two artists, so we'll have to see what they've got up their sleeves next!

NECA has announced the latest and greated release by them. The NECA 1:4 Scale LOTR Gollum and Smeagol Action Figures. There isn’t quite a release date quite on the books yet, but I’m sure with the Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey coming to theaters in just about a mont,h they should be coming to stores around that
To celebrate the upcoming 10th anniversary of their Marvel Minimates line in 2013, Diamond Select Toys recently held a four-part fan poll in partnership with Marvel.com, in which fans could vote on which characters they wanted to see in the line’s 50th consecutive assortment. The characters in each poll were based on fan wish lists, [...]
Onegai Teacher's Mizuho Kazami has always held a spot in my heart, as both the show and some of her early figures were some of the first additions to my anime and PVC collections. Not to mention, I've totally got a thing for pink hair! It's always nice to see an old classic getting revisited, or so I'd like to think. This gigantic 1/2.5 scale polyresin figure from A+ might have me rethinking that mantra, though.
I admit, I'm a big enough perv to rather enjoy the less than modest getup she's got on. Plus, as you can probably guess from the fact her clothing is actual fabric, she's quite castoffable from head to toe. I could give or take her facial details, as well, perhaps just slightly falling victim to the resin curse of oddly designed characters.
What's the turn off, then? As I'm sure you can tell, it'd definitely be those proportions. Mizuho's never been the most petite of characters, but this? I feel like I'm purchasing a figure from Queen's Blade or Eiken, not my dear Mizuho. Whether she's right up your alley or not, be ready to fork over ¥33,800 to pick her up just in time for her December release. How's that for a stocking stuffer?
We've updated the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero section of our Sideshow Collectibles Photo Archive with the second piece in the Premium Format Figure collection. Follow this link to check out the exclusive edition of the Baroness Premium Format Figure.
IGear Toys have updated their page with new prototype images for the Cogz NOT Gears, Bushwacker NOT Outback and Duneraker NOT Beachcomber action figures. The next three toys in their MiniWarriors are shown unpainted in their robot and alternate modes as well as a look at their official promo rendering shot of the final toy. Check out all the images below for the full reveal.
The KicksOnFire Blog have posted news and images of the Megatron Nikes: The Nike Air Max Flyposite looks to garner a bit more attention by way of a special release that plays on a true collectors sensibilities. If you ever collected Transformers this Megatron model will hit you doubly hard as the model is a must have in that respect. The theme is a tribute to Calvin Johnson of the Detroit Lions who bears the same nickname as the fictional character and while we arent sure about release info we are sure that they look great.
BBTS have listed the Amazon Japan exclusive chrome piledrivers for Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-12 Lambor / Sideswipe action figures. They have somehow obtained a bunch of them to offer to USA fans for a pre-order price of $15.99. They are listed arrive December 2012. Get you a set of Masterpiece MP-12 Lambor Sidesipe Chrome Piledrivers Exclusives before they run out now at bigbadtoystore.com.
Prior to DesignerCon, my knowledge of Yetis & Friends' work was limited to what was available on their Etsy shop. I think their most iconic toys are their yeti plush trophies, which, as one might expect, are plush heads of cute yeti monsters that you can mount on your wall. It sure beats a stuffed fish, right?
Upon visiting the group's DCon booth, I learned Yetis & Friends is also in the webisode producing business. Their show, Shark Bites, utilizes impressive-looking puppets that play on the fact that are toys (as opposed to The Muppets, which takes great effort to hide their characters' seams and the like). The web show's episodes are expanded through comics, allowing the characters and their world to reach fans in two different mediums. Here's hoping plushes are next on the list. I wouldn't mind a Spielberg the shark of my very own.
Check out photos of the rest of the booth in the gallery!

So those who know me know that I have a profound love of Transformers. It’s one of my main focuses in collecting. The arrival of a new Masterpiece Transformer is a very special day in my household. To be fair, I have a love/hate relationship with them. Sometimes they’re absolutely brilliant. Grimlock, MP-10 Optimus Prime, [...]
