Marky Sparky, a leading specialty toy and gift company, is launching a new game: Mumbly’s–Games of Skill, Precision, Braggadocio, and Bravado. Mumbly’s combines Pitching Pennies with Darts, while adding the collectibility of Pogs. Each set contains three designed funky/cool magnetic game characters. The rules are simple. Like all schoolyard games from the past, rules are [...]
I'm really glad that I can finally talk about S.H. Figuarts Daft Punk. The pair of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo will see release this November and will no doubt be at the top of many want lists. We get a bit of a closer look at the duo today, seeing them off on their own.
One of the features that people would like to see are light-up helmets, but sadly that won't be possible with this release. However, what will be featured are the reflections within the helmet, as is typically seen in all of the Kamen Rider releases. These are the figures that weren't expected but always wanted. As many of you said before, we just hope that this leads to something more. At the very least of these, Tron: Legacy variants are a must.
There's still no info as to how much you'll pay for the duo. They're officially due out in November, so you'll just have an album to tide you over. I guess I can manage with that. There's also the gallery and Bluefin / Tamashii Nations' Facebook where you can check out the latest images.
Lulubell Toys has four James Virtua Cowboy Kun's from NinjAlien of Japan. They will be taking lottery entries via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) from now until April 5th 2013 at Noon Pacific Time for the chance to purchase one. It will run $150.00 plus shipping. Send your email in the following format: SUBJECT LINE: Cowboy Kun Lottery [...]
From the 1980s animated series, Jem and The Holograms, through Hasbro and Integrity Toys Inc, comes The Misfits. The rivals to Jem and her band, the Misfits are Phillis "Pizzazz" Garbor, Roxanne "Roxy" Pelligrini, and Mary "Stormer" Phillips. Now I want a cool '80s name too!
These newest additions to the Jem and The Holograms series of high-end adult collectible dolls are fully articulated, 12 inches tall, and made of vinyl. Their hair is even rooted with hand-applied eyelashes … I'm not even sure what that means, but wow that sounds detailed!
Each doll comes in their own signature look with their musical instruments, alternate hands, doll stand, and other cool accessories. At US$119 each, these will be available in late May through select Integrity Toys dealers.
Coming from Bandai's Saint Cloth Myth EX line, Capricorn Shura is now available for pre-order. From the Saint Seiya series, just like Aries Mu, this 7-inch-tall figure has been redone to offer better articulation, expressions, and accessories.
Included with Capricorn Shura is three interchangeable face parts, four different hand parts, and even two mask parts only seen in the manga. As always with the deluxe figures in this line, they sell out fast, so Capricorn Shura will be no different.
Pre-order officially began on April 3 with the price listed as US$72.99. Fans of this PVC figure can expect to see it in July.

"Peace Seeker began life as a Planet Domu War Tourist. Starting off with the blank 4″ resin, The Peace Seeker’s head and the rider on his back are resin casts of an original sculpt I did just for this piece. The piece has been finished with acrylic paint and many layers of matte and gloss protective lacquer, and a signature fluffy fur body hand-sewn from various textured, hand trimmed fur fabrics." ~mentions Holly Stanway.
"Peace Seeker" is priced at £350 and is a one of a kind custom piece from A Little Stranger, and is to be exhibited on the Planet Domu booth at ToyCon UK.
Peace Seeker is part of a series of 9 custom War Tourists by UK artists: Jon-Paul Kaiser / Mister Lister / A Little Stranger / Stu Witter / runDMB / MapMap / Uncle Absinthe / Pete Fowler / Mimic.
We've seen both the 'Regular' Edition MegaSeths - scheduled to debut at the coming April 6th ToyConUK (I've even been an honored recipient of a TOYSREVIL-Edition!) - today let us witness the reveal of the MegaSeth CHASES!
With a (headless) bat accessory in hand, and bat-blood dripping down their mustached lips ("Ozzy" would be proud), they are limited to one in ten of each editions, available for purchase at the ibreaktoys and Fugi.me booths, and yes, they are sold blind boxed!
- MEGASETH is a hand-cast resin standing 4-inches tall, designed and created by Lisa Rae Hansen.
- There will be 2 colorways released at ToyCon UK on April 6th.
- Each MEGASETH set retails for £50 per.

Frankly I was getting pretty antsy, as I had no news of what Sarah Miskelly aka Lunabee was going to bring to ToyCon UK on April 6th … but this emailer put my mind at ease, and I would like to share info and images with you, dear readers!
Expect customs galore from the artist with a colorful palette, featuring Gary Ham's Hermees, 8” Dunny, 7” Trikky, Pecanpal and a few Munnyworld figures ranging from £60-£140 (images revealed and sneaked above). And as well there is a 10 x piece Dunny Series dubbed "The Toxic Ten" - each priced at £45 each (a super special price especially for Toycon). Sarah adds: "Any toys that do not sell will be going straight on my online store on Sunday at the same special low price."
"If you are attending this Saturday and have any customizing questions you would like to ask me, I am on the Custom Toy Panel at 11am along with 3 other great artists." ~added Lunabee.
Tis been general ("unnerving") radio-silence when it comes to Cris Rose and what he has for ToyCon UK this coming April 6th, no doubt deep in work and prepping for D-Day. Here are some snaps from his Instagram @mrcrisrose for an idea of what he might have. As well Cris will be featuring; "…over 70 of my own bots, plus another 20+ collab pieces."
Expect price range to be around £30-45, a few at £25 and sets for £175. And as well there is an exclusive RID pin badge in Cyan and Nickle (Edition of 25) and debut of 3 new bot sculpts!

Erick Scarecrow will be dropping three new resin toys this Saturday at 11 EST. The vio colorway of Erick’s Soopa Maria figure is a one-off with a very Spring-ish pastel scheme. The corona colorway of Turtum Micci is another one-off with a warm gradient. My favorite is the electric cotton candy version of Chap-Lynn which has a mix of transparent resin colors. The subtle purple stripes at the top are especially nice. This one’s limited to 12 pieces. Be here at 11 on Saturday to grab one of these.

I’m not a marathon runner by any means although one day I’d like to complete one! My friend Sarah - who is pretty rad by the way says that every runner must have Bic Bands. She’s a marathon runner so I pretty much take her word for anything fitness related. Now I wasn’t... [Continue Reading]
