Artist Shane Jessup has started up a new endeavor named HACHI Supply. It's an artist-driven dog supply company that's looking to fill the void in designer dog apparel. Actually, it's letting you show off your dog by decking them out with some pretty cool artwork. HACHI Suppy is initially teaming up with the following artists: [...]
You may have in your game closet, the original Elefun game from Hasbro. You know the one, with the elephant with the long plastic snout that when turned on makes little vinyl butterflies fly all around your living room, while you stand their holding a net trying to catch them? I have been playing the [...]
Mikie Graham's Zombie Art Project is lurching closer and closer to its gallery opening in Los Angeles's Toy Art Gallery on November 24. We saw a few of the custom pieces that will be on display previously at DesignerCon and even more are previewed on Mikie's tumblr page. However, those are mere morsels of what will be offered at the show. Mikie promises "a fun assortment of affordable single zombies, some more intricate midsize playsets, a GIANT 3ft x 3ft diorama, and some other MEGA surprises."
The show will run from November 24 to December 8, with an opening reception from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Pacific on the night of the 24th. The reception will be a great opportunity to meet the artist himself. You can RSVP on the event's facebook page. Even if you can't make it to the opening night, toy fans in the Los Angeles should hit up Zombie Art Project while it's still in town. It looks to be one awesome show.
For their weekly toy drop Super7 will unleash Mummy Seijin a hybrid of KaToPe’s Drunk Seijin and Brian Flynn’s Mummy Boy characters. A mix of cute with just a touch of monster appeal, the new figure debuts in a mix of brown and orange vinyl with yellow, orange, and red...
For those of us who have been eagerly waiting all day for Mattel to finish "tallying" pre-orders and make an announcement, our patience has been rewarded with a confirmation that Castle Grayskull will indeed become a reality.
Mattel halted pre-orders earlier today with a notice that it was "tallying orders" and would let us know the results later in the day, citing a need to validate a "few very large orders" before they could be added to the count and advising readers to respond immediately if they received an e-mail. While I'm curious what constitutes a large order where a US$250 item is concerned, the source is a subject of even greater curiosity. Was it re-sellers of some sort putting in an order with the intention of making a profit down the road? Or was it fan super pacs trying to ensure that project was a go?
Whatever the case, I'm happy that things will be moving forward. Even if I don't end up buying a copy myself (because 2013 is shaping up to be an expensive year...), I still want to see what this thing will look like and now it seems like I'll have the chance. For those of you sick of the Castle Grayskull updates, you'll be granted a brief reprieve as the next major announcement will probably be the packaging artwork vote scheduled for Spring 2013.

Just a quick update that we now have the highly anticipated Fansproject Assaulter in stock! This is the only stock that will include the bonus parts mini model kit and additionally if you haven't seen this piece in person, it is an extremely solid and hefty piece weighing an impressive (almost) 2 pounds! Preorders are being processed and will start shipping out tomorrow, for those that didn't preorder order yours at TFSource.com.
Ouch, looks like those hoping to get the Fall of Cybertron Blaster figure will have some hunting to do. Thanks to the details from the BigBadToyStore listing we have found out just one Blaster figure will be packed in a case of four. Most likely scalpers will be wrapping they tentacles around them too for an extra fee no doubt. BBTS does offer them as a set of two if you don't want to chase after the shortpacked figure, pre-order it now at bigbadtoystore.com
DC Collectibles' fourth wave of their articulate Batman: Arkham City line is now up for pre-order. The wave features another Batman, Nightwing, Talia al Ghul (Batman's occasional love interest/baby mama), and the previously discussed Deadshot.
While we may have seen a lot of similar-looking Batman and Nightwing figures over the years, Talia is a bit rarer and this Deadshot is (thankfully) one of a kind. This also very well may be the only chance to pick up Deadshot and Talia in their Arkham City duds as it's doubtful either will appear in Mattel's Batman Legacy/Unlimited line. And, rather unfortunately, it's not even that good of a Talia. Oh well, I guess something is better than nothing... which is exactly what Hugo Strange has seen so far.
Oh well, with the shrinking roster of Arkham City characters to draw from, DC Collectibles will have to eventually include Hugo Strange. Hopefully before they end the line. As with previous regular entries, these figures have a US$24 list price (but can generally be found for US$20~22 individually) and are slated for a March release.
Last year, toy artist Mikie Graham customized 65 Playmobil figures into a mini horde of the living dead he called the "Zombie Art Project". This year Z.A.P. is back with a completely new onslaught of total zombie madness. 30 customized Playmobil scenes that comprise Mikie's very first solo show "The Return of the Zombie Art [...]
The wait is almost over. First show in prototype form at SDCC 2011, legendary skateboarder Mark Gonzales’s The Priest vinyl will be released at the end of the month. A collaboration between Krooked Skateboards and Super7, the 10” version of Gonzales’ popular character is cast in Japanese vinyl and features...
The world of balance bikes is growing rapidly, but there isn’t much information out there on the bikes themselves-more so just the balance factor. While taking a close look at the Joovy Bicycoo GT, we took into account the build and make of the actual bike itself, while also keeping in mind the developmental benefits [...]

All you need to do is to take wonderful festive photos of Lunartik in a Cup of Tea. With entering you’ll have the chance to [...]
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Chris, known as @drquest on Twitter, and I was the lucky winner of Action Figure Fury’s first contest, the Sideshow Collectibles GI Joe Pit Command Center. I was very excited when this large box arrived at my work. I felt like the old man in A Christmas
The boxes have shipped to stores. Some to homes. Some have been opened and the set has been ‘spoiled’ with pictures and stats of what the new pieces can do. I’m talking about the new release of HeroClix, named “Batman”. At comic and gaming shops across the land, folks will be buying and playing the [...]

Good job, everyone! Not only did we reach the goal to move this set into production, we demolished it! Thanks to all who pre-ordered Castle Grayskull, Mattel has given the green light to extend pre-orders for this awesome play-set through January 4, 2013.
