Our 7 year old isn’t much into video games. I’m pretty sure it’s because the kid would live outside if we let him. Outside, riding his scooter and playing with his friends, is where he would prefer to be 24/7. That’s a very good problem to have right? We’ve bought him video games in theRead More

So by now I've no doubt set up a precedence that if someone takes the time to make a custom Ninja Turtles action figure, I will probably like it. Most recently, that was another custom of the Shredder. Now I'm turning my gaze to the Turtles themselves and I couldn't be happier with what I'm seeing. G Brand from Figure Realms has tackled a reimagining of not one, but all four of the ninja teens, and each one is both unique and freaking awesome in a feudal style theme. And of course none of them are for sale and I don't own any of them, so they're stupid and I hate them. Okay, not true.
This is actually the sort of thing I can't get enough of since variety is beautiful with customs and more importantly, the ability for a figure to move is placed above all else. To start with, G Brand's Raphael is a converted Chuck Liddell UFC figure with some excellent sai, a cool new bandana, and quite the cool look. Donatello started his life as a WWE Kane figure, taking up the wandering ronin appearance that exemplifies the feudal style that G Brand's going for here, including his bandana covering one eye, which is a nice touch. Leonardo also comes from a UFC figure and seems to be the most assassin-like of the four, what with the cool mouth-covering bandana. And then there's my favorite, Michelangelo, reimagined as a kung fu master. He also comes from a WWE base but you'd probably never recognize him since the sleek, white outfit and nunchuks are just too amazing.
I'm yet again in that sad position where I know none of these are available in stores, a shame as I'd buy them all right now. The work here is simply perfect, at least visually (I have no clue how well they actually move but I'd assume excellently due to the articulation). Even the weapons look great. I can't tell you how much I'd pay for just the Michelangelo, but I'll let you believe that it's somewhere between "A Lot" and "Too Much." So Turtles fans, any of you feel just as saddened by this as I do? G Brand, start selling these and you'll make bank!
A Little Bit On The Snow Bunny Side: Flaviano Armentaro re-imagines He-Man and Battle Cat as winter sports fans at a ski resort.
The newest Rotofugi exhibition opens its doors tonight in the form of The Rising Tide 2. The show, curated by LiLJAPAN (a.k.a. Hiro Hayashi) features new works from a number of Japanese and Japanese-American artists, many who you should be familiar with: LiLJAPAN, Skulltoys, Nao and Shin Tanaka, Ilanena, Mark Nagata, Shun Nakatsuru, Chanmen, Uamou, Aya (Refreshment) and Mike Oshite.
Everything opens tonight at 7 p.m. at Rotofugi (2780 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago, Ill.). The show runs through January 8, so you should have plenty of time to check the art out if you'd like.

I've have previously discussed my affection for Madame Alexander Cissette dolls. They're just so cute. The trunk sets are extremely attractive to me. They're like little parts of doll houses and there are lots of fashion items in each one. My newest trunk set is the Christmas Trunk Set. I took a chance on an unknown seller I located on ecrater because it was the lowest price I have ever seen on this set.
The exterior of the trunk depicts a front door decorated with a wreath. It's the same on both sides. The interior is holly papered with a space for the doll and four drawers.
One doll is included. She comes dressed in a very traditional taffeta and gold mesh Christmas plaid dress with green suede-like pumps, stockings, crinoline, long gloves (oddly without fingers) and a hat. I didn't want to tie the hat on so it's probably not supposed to look like that.
In the following pictures, I have dressed two additional Cissette dolls in the two other complete fashions that come in this trunk set. Nothing has been skimped on. There are shoes for each outfit!
The caped coat and hat are a low pile fur-like fabric. It's lush. She has wrist length gloves and leatherette tall boots. The red dress underneath is a sleeveless taffeta with a gathered skirt. I added the earrings.
I've seen this set priced from a low of $117. to a high of $220. Shop around!
Today I found it for $119.95 at Carytown Dolls & Bears.

DENVER - Toys for Tots says this season is the worst they've ever had for donations. Usually by mid-December, their warehouse is full. This year, dozens and dozens of bins sit empty - 70,000 toys short of what they need to make sure every Colorado kid they serve gets a toy.
[Business Wire] - Insert quote after third graph: “Walmart applauds Hasbro’s long-term commitment and accomplishments in corporate social responsibility,” said Laura Phillips, Walmart’s senior vice president of toys and seasonal merchandising.

A Little Bit on the Platinum Side: A trailer for Metal Gear Solid: Rising has just leaked ahead of its VGA premiere. The video confirms the rumor that Platinum Games will be handling the game’s development from here on out. This is the best game-related news I’ve heard in a while. Platinum are clearly the leaders of Japanese action game developers and I can’t think of a better team to handle this Lightning Bolt Action.
