Today’s Daily Prompt: Was there a special gift or toy you wanted as a child, but never receiv
A former police constable appears in court charged with stealing cash, drugs and sex toys.
Singaporean brand Mighty Jaxx has seemingly come out of nowhere this year with several excellent releases that happily blur the line between art toy and sculpture. Their next project is Love Bomb by Singapore-based Phunk Studio. This 12” resin project replicates the awesome and perhaps fearsome wonder of the original...
The other day we took a look at the flagship store of Animate in Ikebukuro - today we take a look at all the Fujoshi goodies that they have - its so much that I'm dedicating a whole post to it ^^;
If BL (Boys Love), Yaoi and merchandise of good looking boys is your cuppa tea then you will probably want to pay them a visit soon.
If you are not familiar with the term "fujoshi" then it means "female otaku" and is written like 腐女子 [ふじょし]。
The address of the Animate Ikebukuro branch as follows - get off at JR Ikebukuro station on the Yamanote line.
Tokyo toshimaku higashiikebukuro 1-20-7
A load of fujoshi lining up for goodies!
There is a poll embedded in this article.
Thanks to Marine and his boundless generosity, I now have PLUM added to my humble collection! This sexy Rhino-character is a resin piece from My Tummy Toys, from a basic concept by Marine Ramdhani and Aish, this blue-edition was first released at the PLUM X JOUWE Exhibition at Salihara Gallery. In an edition of only 10, mine is numbered "8"! How's that for prosperous?
Folks interested can
I like it that the lil'Negora seems to be saying:
"Three, Two, One … FIGHT-O!"
An image so epic be the above face-off-pic between King Negora vs Kaiju Zanga (Scorpion Version by Medicom Toy) from Max Toy Co has frankly got me excited moreso than any toy-pic should, in the first place … full range of images can be seen here (images via) … oh man, I seriously need me some Zanga in my to-life!
You've paid a lot of money for your Hot Toys Iron Man collection. Every armor, Mark I through VII, is out and fully posed. However, you've gotten tired of seeing them out taking advantage of all those points of articulation so it becomes time to put them into a box. It's okay, though because they're boxes like Tony Stark's. Just like him, you'll have spent a lot of money to put armors in a light up box.
All jokes aside, Hot Toys is allowing you to have your own Hall of Armor. Each box allows you to house your armor under an assortment of LED light and you can connect them to form a full Hall of Armor, as featured in Stark's garage. Each hall also comes with a sticker (yes, a sticker) which you can place on the outside glass to replicate a schematic of the armor. It's a nice little package until you factor in the price.
How much does all of this cost? Each hall will cost you $129.99. That's right, $129.99 for a single box. If you decide to buy the 4-pack, that will run you $469.99. Mind you, if you actually have each armor, this is going to cost nearly a grand to display. I'm sorry, that is just ridiculous for what you're getting. I just can't fathom spending $1000 on a display set unless it was an actual piece of furniture. If you are feeling rich enough for this though, I suggest donating a tidy sum to charity, then you can go ahead and purchase this with a clear conscience. The Iron Man Hall of Armor will become available in April.
The Radiator Springs Classic line at Toys R Us only are diecast re-releases from CARS 1. While the card alludes to “favorites” from the original CARS movie as to why these re-releases are available, some of these releases are truth in blurb writing, others merely fall into line with production going on in the other [...]
A myriad of WIPs to help folks embrace 2103, has been humbly featured in this blog of mine - including unpainted prototypes from MiniCel from Rotobox x KusoVinyl and DODI from Gabriel Tiongson x Vinyl On Vinyl et al - and so it was indeed a hard pressed task to list the TOP 10 TOYS to kook forward to in 2013, so I've decided to go with the COLORED pieces, specifically for "production toys".
set name: chi battles
theme: legends of chima
come with a tree with detachable spinning top and 2 speedorz.
also included 2 fang cones, 2 rip cords, 4 weapons, 2 power upz, 12 chi and 10 game cards.
With improved infrastructure such as logistics and wider penetration of courier services in even smaller towns, coupled with rising disposable income, the domestic online toys retailing market is gaining momentum, according to industry players.
The “oversized” Deluxe Dinoco Helicopter has returned … Opener Completists can rest – he is essentially exactly the same as the last release in the oversized-deluxe-megasize lineup. The “oversized” Dinoco Helicopter replaced the singles version in the World of CARS motif series – upsizing it slightly (maybe 30%) in the then new MEGASIZE-OVERSIZED series. [...]
Magical Suite Prism Nana is a relatively new anime but that hasn't stopped Good Smile Company from choosing the show's three heroines to be Nendoroids. Prototypes of the firey Itaru, earth-embued Asuka, and water-wielder Kotone have been spotted over at Comiket 83 in Japan. Even though the show hasn't made it to the English-speaking market yet, I am sure many of you have seen promotional images of for the anime (if you haven't there is a display is the gallery). Hopefully the finished figures will have the same bold, brilliant colors as those I associate with the girls' outfits.
What is your take on this, readers? Are you excited for these latest prototypes?

Albert Art was recently commissioned to customize an 8-inch Toy2R MonQee to resemble the character Ness from the videogame series EarthBound. (I never played the original SNES version of the game, but do remember Ness from the Super Smash Bros. games.)
What will they think of next? Mandy, Mona and Manny Monorails. Mandy Monorail is blue, Mona Monorail is orange and Manny Monorail is red. I’m sure the eyes-on monorail set is coming. Tweet This Post
While many eyes are on Comiket, which happened over this weekend, Volks decided to hold their own event called Hobby Tengoku and showed off some of their products, old and new to visitors.
At the top of the list is the debut of Bertille Alchiselle, another heroine from Walkure Romanze (Seriously, how many girls are there from that game?). She was first announced a few weeks ago on the event site but this is the first time the public has been able to see (and place an order) for her. I'm somewhat tempted myself, but after getting Akane, I don't think I could stretch myself for another. Not yet anyway.
Also along for the ride is Akiyama Yukari, another character from Girls und Panzer. She'll be joining her captain, Miho, as a charagumin kit in February. Probably at Wonder Festival. Also on the Charagumin line is Revy from Black Lagoon. There's no kit for her because she will be on sale at the start of the new year, January 1st in fact! Look out for her at the New kit Exhibition!
T-ELOS was also shown again along with an old favourite in the shape of KOS-MOS. Man, I wish mine looked that pristine! Still waiting for T-ELOS to be shipped as well! Soon...
Bringing up the rear are older Charagumin kits such as Gaury and a chibi Lina Inverse from Slayers, Etna with her prinnies from Disgaea and the main ladies of Valkyria chronicles! We also get another glimpse of Amil from Shining Hearts (still unpainted, unfortunately) and Nagisa from Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity.
Looks like we have some things to look forward to from Volks for the new year. I'm sure they'll have some surprises in store for us as well.

The images shows us the TF-01 box and figure in its packing tray with instruction sheet. Still no word on pricing, release date and retailer availablity.

The inclusion of the Mandalorians back in the second season of the Clone Wars CGI show caused some stir because it practically tore down most of what author Karen Traviss had been writing about them ever since the publication of her Republic Commando novel.
