Rad Video Game Books At IndieCade East
Museum of the Moving Image in NYC has a pretty awesome gift shop with a hefty selection of books on all sorts of stuff the typical Albotian would be in to: movies, art, and of course, video games.
I had a pretty tough time deciding on which book to get, but I wound up going with Nintendo Magic mainly because I like the face Satoru Iwata is making in the picture up top. I kind of regret the decision because it’s only $7.98 on Amazon (only 2 left in stock as I write this!), but whatevs.
Any readers out there have any of the other books pictured? If so, let us know how they are in the comments.
Vans and Marvel Entertainment are planning a footwear collection that will feature Marvel Super Heroes on limited edition sneakers at Journeys stores in the U.S. The collection will launch this month with Iron Man and Spider-Man styles for adults, kids and toddlers.

See both of these toys in and out of the box. An additional shot shows Megatron with his Micron battle sword. Check out the images below for more details now.
Carrera, the worldwide market leader in the scale model racetrack sector, is celebrating 50 years of the Carrera brand. The cult pop group Yello has joined Carrera to hit the grid, put the pedal to the metal, and fire up the worlds of music and slotcar racing with a special Carrera remix of “The Race.” [...]
Panicon + Samus = Cool Cosplay
Here’s an excellent Samus cosplay by neko-tin, that merges Panicon (I don’t know what that is, truthfully) and Samus Aran of the Metroid series. Makes for a cool photoshoot, really. Check out the rest of the Samus photos at neko-tin’s Deviant Art page.
First off, please note that I recognize this post presumes you give a crap about whether I subscribe to the Filmation sub. This may be very much not the case, but to those of you who visit this site largely for MOTUC content, I feel I owe it to you. As all longtime readers of [...]
Welcome back again to Custom Made Monday, our spotlight on things going on in the world of custom figures. This week's rundown is a little bit shorter than last week's, but it's also just as impressive. In part, that's because we have some great custom action figures on display, as well as a figma or two, and of course, a few vinyl figures.
So who's customized what, and just who is that familiar looking face in the header? Hit the jump to find out!
Djeadpool by PackRat Studios
As we normally do, we start with our header figure, a new custom from PackRat Studios. Taking inspiration from Django Unchained and more so the Django films that came before it, PackRat have merged the movie character with the Merc with a Mouth. Djeadpool is a totally impressive figure: there's three different heads for it, including the masked and unmasked Bowen versions and another custom masked version. There's also a diorama backdrop for Djeadpool, and lots of accessories: a cowboy hat, katanas, tomahawks, rifles, cannon revolvers, and six-shooters.
The thing I like the most, though, is the coffin. In a clear homage to the original Django films (spoilers ahead), the coffin holds a Gatling gun that Djeadpool can make use of. Everything fits inside a custom-fitted briefcase carrying case, and looks super snazzy.
Best news? If you want him, go and bid on him. The auction ends Tuesday.
Usagi Yojimbo, Krang Android and Slash figures from PackRat Studios
We've also got some more Turtles customs from PackRat, including Usagi Yojimbo (created by legendary artist Stan Sakai and one of the Turtles' cross-over guests); Slash; and Krang's android body, version 2.0. Krang's android body looks the most spectacularly detailed, but man, that Usagi Yojimbo figure is spot-on. It looks less like a custom and more like an actual released figure.
Cotton Candy Munny (and other customs) from melodreama
There's also a few customs from melodreama to spotlight. Chief among those is the Cottom Candy Munny, a 4-inch version with a sweet treat in hand. Yum!
Taeko Kondo and Noriko Isobe figmas by Matsuzakaya Poru
If you're a Girls und Panzer fan, then here's two custom figmas to check out. Each one is based on a character from the series, and compared to their appearances in the anime, I'd have to say they're pretty spot-on. You can tell they're customs because the hair doesn't quite look the same as it does on figmas (it actually looks a little smoother sculpted), but I have to say I'm impressed with the finished product. Any of you wish these were actual figma and not just customs?
Captain Thor-Man by Nikejerk
Finally, in this week's shortened version, we take a look at Nikejerk's new superhero chimera. Using the Plastic Booty Thor resin figure as a base, and asked to combine Thor, Captain America and Iron Man into one figure, Nikejerk did just that. The helmet, face mask, left arm and head are all new sculpts by Nikejerk, and magnets hold most of those new pieces in place. The cape is also removable, if you'd like to see it, and there's an alternate left arm to display the piece with. Check out the gallery for a few other shots, and click here to browse through all the photos!
[That wraps up this week's installment of Custom Made Monday! If you have any customs you'd like to see featured, or just spot something that's eye-catching and fits the feature, be sure to e-mail us and let us know!]
Jaw-Dropping 3D Sketches by Nagai Hideyuki
These phenomenal 3D illustrations were drawn by 22-year-old artist, Nagai Hideyuki. Hideyuki uses multiple 2D surfaces to emphasize the third dimension to its viewer in its fullest effect. These sketches are absolutely incredible.

One of my favorite booths I visited at the 2013 New York Toy Fair was Cloud b. Although Todd and I are out of the baby phase, we still love Cloud b products and have a daughter who’s quite obsessed with the Tranquil Turtle. It’s seriously soothing and not just for the little ones! OneRead More

Like all Integrity Toy's premium dolls, Think Pink arrived nicely packaged and presented in the box. All the Funny Face boxes are pink inside with pink stands.
|Think Pink Mini Gift Set|
In "Think Pink", lead character Maggie Prescott, Fashion Editor extraordinaire, is out to lay new fashion ground for her ever demanding readers and fashion lovers all over the world. As she starts exploring fashion trends to create a bold new look for the next issue of her fashion magazine, she and her "oh so fashionable" assistants break into this most visually stunning musical number... Totally convincing us to THINK PINK! The Think Pink dressed doll mini-gift set represents one of Maggie's fashionably pink clad assistants!The promotional photos, posted elsewhere on this blog, accurately represent the contents of the set.
"Think Pink" is a 12" fully articulated vinyl doll with rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes featuring the FR: Monogram body (with Victoire Roux legs) and the Imogen head sculpt standing in for one of the dancers in the "Think Pink" musical number. The mini-gift set includes two complete looks from the "Think Pink" musical number in FUNNY FACE. The first look in the set is composed of a two-piece bright pink business suit with a white pill-box hat, short gloves and matching shoes, while the second show-stopping look is composed of a pink satin two-piece gown with a transformable pink fur peplum that turns into a cape, just like the one in the movie! Pink opera length gloves, bright pink satin shoes and a jewelry set complete this look. It also includes an alternate set of hands, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. For adult collectors 14 years and up.
This doll reminds me so much of the Lana Turner Hollywood Royalty dolls from a few years ago.
Happily for me, she does not have the Poppy Parker leg. I will be harvesting her body for one of my Jo Stockton figures.

Who will have the last laugh? Stay tuned...
This morning I got a very nice email from a Bat-Blog Fan named Stacy. She wanted to share these 2 pics of her brand-new "Batman Dress" that her friend recently made for her. Wow Stacy! Your friend did an amazing job on this. Oh yeah, it's very cool! ( Thanks )
