What I really enjoy about seeing Gisela Arevalo aka Murkasec's Facebook-album - is that I get to see customs and works I might have done before and as well be able to share his works with folks reading my blog! (THAT is one of the aims for this 11 PIXS for 2011-project, folks - for you to promote yourself, within specific context, and for us to enjoy your work as well!). Check out an original "
Many thanks to YouTube member ProtoRetro who has created a video review for the BTS-05 Minions - Tremor and Frequenzy from third part toy maker BTS Toys.

Check out video review and share you comments after the jump.

Subjects like cancer are especially difficult to explain to children, even more so how to cope. For a pair of friends, there is something that could be done. Friends Rebecca Sypin and Jane Bingham have come together to pitch an idea to Mattel that could help with such issues. The two have created a Facebook page to push for the creation of a bald version of the iconic Barbie doll.
As with anything, there are cynics out there. There are those who say that you could just simply shave the hair off an existing Barbie. Anyone who's had a brother can tell you that you will not get the look you're aiming for. Also, some have criticized the idea of it as it detracts from people directly contributing to cancer-related charities. It has to be pointed out though that sadly, most of the population is unaware of how the disease affects people's lives, let alone the teaching tool it can provide to younger kids.
Personally speaking, I love this idea. After having to deal with cancer in my family, as I'm sure many of us have known someone afflicted by it, any thing that can help those understand what's going on will be beneficial. I would love to see Mattel actually do something that would be empowering with Barbie that isn't a career.

From Japanese design group Groovisions (groovisions.com) comes BROCKMANN LIGHT - a series of mini figurines featuring articulation at the neck and shoulders, and removable/interchangeable torso, very much like eBoy's PEECOLS and Pinky:St figures. I like toys with playability, or a semblance of, so this appeals to me particularly. Produced by Cube Works and originally released in 2003, these
The HKTDC Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair kicked off Monday at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The fair, organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), runs through Thursday, January 12. Three complementary fairs—the Hong Kong International Stationery Fair (staged by HKTDC and Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd.), the Hong Kong [...]
Propane gas containers are well sealed containers that have a strong thick metal wall. This makes it very easy to transport the fuel container because there is no risk of spilling fuel or danger of penetrating the container. Propane heaters have proven to be safer over the years. Changing, storing and using these propane heaters [...]

Without knowing any other details, Prudence dolls ($75 – $95) reached out to squeeze me from my very first glimpse of their sweet little faces. I mean, come on. How can you refuse. These Waldorf-style dolls feature the signature sculpted, wool-stuffed head and soft bodies of a standard Waldorf Doll. But the updated detailing, the [...]
In Australia there is a very talented Graphic Artist named Dr. Faustus who has done some amazing parodies of Dr. Seuss Artwork that is Batman-related! I've been a HUGE Dr. Seuss Fan forever and even collect the books plus a few vintage toys. Reading his books at age 4 gave a life-long LOVE of reading and that's a debt I can never repay. I'm very proud to say that I have a RARE 1957 First Edition Hardback with Dust-Jacket Copy of "THE CAT IN THE HAT", a True Literary Classic! Now, I'm not trying to brag, ha ha, I just want people to know that I'm pretty serious about my love of anything DR SEUSS!
So, you can only imagine how I feel about this artwork, it's INSANELY GREAT! First, as a parody, they're just funny. The one of TWO-FACE really cracks me up for some reason & the CATWOMAN Cat-Suit is wonderful. But the thing that makes them true masterpieces of ART is the ultra-fine details in copying the exact drawing style of Seuss! Faustus has done some other parodies, which are worth mentioning, but because we focus on "Batman" here I'll just post this LINK, please click it to see more great stuff!
Okay ... well, the headline's a little bit off, but let me explain. Hot Toys' Batman based off Michael Keaton's look in the 1989 film is on its way to being released soon, and it looks like the box is going to have a little bit of a surprise. In the middle of the box will be a translucent Batman insignia that can be removed from the box itself and used to project the Batsignal logo where ever you please.
Yes, this means you can make your own Batsignal with a flashlight. I don't even know how to tell you how awesome this is. Expect to see this Batman (and the matching Joker) soon. Did any of you pre-order this figure?
JonPaul Kaiser is showing off photos of this 3" Dunny custom that he completed for Shawn Wigs. The two of them had chatted about what Shawn wanted custom-wise, but then when he saw the photos of Jon's 36" Maori Qee...he changed his mind and asked for another Maori Warrior. Just check out those tattoos!

DC just announced that 6 of its titles are being replaced with 6 new ones. Two of these, I had tried and dropped. Partially because the story did not stick with me. I like the characters enough, but I am also feeling the sting of needing to be frugal. Due to money issues, I dropped [...]
Space Ace was a game that perhaps never got as much love as its Don Bluth Studios predecessor, Dragon's Lair (well, there's also the whole laserdisc thing), but that doesn't mean it's been forgotten. In fact, Electric Tiki is releasing a 1/8-scale (14-inch) polystone statue of Ace's girlfriend, Kimberly. The statue itself features Kimberly in her trademark winged roller skated, but what's really cool is the base she's on. It has five display areas, with one featuring the game's logo, and the other four featuring model sheet character drawings, which is a nice little touch for Space Ace fans.
Kimberly will run you US$199.99 with a US$20 deposit. She'll be releasing in the third quarter of 2012 and you can pre-order her on Sideshow Collectibles right now. This statue bring back and nostalgic memories, Planet Tomopop?
From his tweets, seems Motorbot is planning 3 x gnomes sculpts (with a base from Travis Lampe's Tear Drip) named: Rock, Troll, and Slime - and these are some WIPs along with an extremely-speedy time-lapse shown below:
Get your wallets and your clicking fingers ready folks! This Saturday, January 14th, Paul Kaiju will be dropping a ton of goodies on his online store. He will be releasing a limited number of “Red Eye” Boss Carrions and “Swamp Gas” Seagools, as well as some individual custom HP Boss...
