Toy Aisle Trolls is a feature highlighting acts of vandalism to in-store toy items. If you find a ruined package, a stolen figure, a swapped-out figure, or any other such acts, take a photo (cell phone photos are fine if they’re not blurry) and email them to email@example.com.

We saw this Asuka figure in magazine scans a while ago, but then I just kind of forgot about it. Now Kotobukiya's latest Asuka treatment is up for pre-order. The preview galleries for this figure sure do look pretty.
This is in the vein of Koto's earlier Evangelion figures, featuring the pilots sitting atop their respective Evas. I'm kind of glad they went back to that theme. As you can see, EVA-02 looks pretty banged up after its outing in Evangelion 2.0. Asuka herself is pretty banged up, and apparently needed to duct tape her plug suit together. Also, her helmet has cat ears.
Obviously, the defining feature of this Asuka figure is her eye patch. Is she swashbuckling out on the high seas, looking for hidden treasure? Who knows? I haven't seen the latest Evangelion movie, so anything is possible in my mind. The best thing about this figure is clearly going to be that delicious, shiny red plug suit. I'm all about glossy butts and Kotobukiya is definitely going to deliver in that area. Big butts, small buts, it doesn't matter as long as it's glossy.
She'll ship in June, and pre-orders are open now for ¥7,800. Avast!
Monster High has debuted its new DVD, Monster High Double Feature. The ghouls of Monster High serve up two fang-tastically fabulous adventures in one DVD: When the boys cannot compete in the Skultimate Roller Maze Championship, Frankie Stein convinces her friends that some “ghoul power” is needed to save the day in the all-new Friday [...]
Orchid Seed's new Manami Ichijo doesn't seem too fond of whatever drink she's pouring over the ground, but hopefully adding this lovely lady to your collection might be a bit more to your taste. She's certainly in Orchid Seed's realm of rather voluptuous ladies, though despite the ample assets there's a lot (no pun intended) to love here.
Overall, I'm seriously digging the art style in general. Manami's got a great soft color palette, and I'm digging the brightness in her eyes and the splashes scattered throughout the design, like the green of her drink's lime and the blue straw. Her hair seems rather nicely done too, lending it an attractive messiness.
Of course, for those looking for more lecherous pursuits, you can strip her top off as well, because why not? Whatever your interests, she'll be available in August for around ¥8,286.
Mattel is going to tease us right till the end! Today on the MattyCollector.com Facebook page they posted our first look at the completed sculpt for their highly anticipated Masters of the Universe Classics Castle Grayskull… or at least part of it. “Here’s a close-up look at the sculpt for Castle Grayskull! We’ll post a [...]
This custom Dunny by Jenn and Tony Bot is not only adorable and insanely detailed, but it’s also puking a goddamn rainbow!
If you’d like commission the duo to make a one-off piece for your collection just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“SUPER MARIO DOESN’T CALL ME A FAG SO WHAT THE FUCK MAKES YOU SO SPECIAL.”
This is the snarky 8-bit art of melonjaywalk. Each piece has a pretty unique story, for example, here’s the story behind the “Mario Fag” piece:
This was done..
I dunno’. It’s half a response to the question ‘why do you like video games so much’. Well, Mario’s not gonna’ complain about the state of the economy, or call me an abomination and tell me who I can’t marry, or criticize the way I dress, etc.
So how could I not prefer videogames to real life.
Check out the artist’s deviantART page for more awesome art with equally awesome stories behind each piece.

Insane Racing Game Chair Set Up
Could you imagine playing a mech game with this?
The lengths that people go to, to make their gaming experience truly amazing, makes me jealous. I wish I had technical engineering skills of any kind.

Everyday as an occupational therapist I’m teaching kids to write letters, numbers and draw pictures. For most of the children I work with who are challenged by how they hold a pencil, or the ability to pay attention, it’s a daunting task, often met with refusal, especially when I hand over the dreaded pencil and [...]
