Launching on May 9th is local urban artist ZERO's solo show (possibly named) "Odd Bedfellows" - details for which remain a mystery (Check out the RSCLS-page on Facebook for updates perhaps), nevertheless these are WIP-images - which showcases a variety of character portraits and perhaps even "celebrities" - at the very least the "appearance" of Bieber, Obama, West and Jobs? Heh.

Back in late March, De Korner debuted LA artist Broken Pigeon’s Death Vader resin figure with three small exclusive editions at WonderCon. The figure design re-envisions Vader as a grim reaper, a concept which fits nicely into the character’s destructive nature. Now DeKorner is following up on the WonderCon releases...
Avatar666 mashed up a PAW! from coarse, with Star Wars' infamous intergalactic bounty hunter Boba Fett, and the result is the glorious PAW FETT! From the design-interpretations of the classic-Fett, down to the armor detailing, this is indeed a sweet piece, and "perfect" for celebrating "Star Wars Day", innit? If seeing these images are not enough for you, view via full-screen slideshow!
Featuring a removable helmet and includes a jetpack and gun, this was first made for an expo in México city with a Star Wars-theme aptly named "Fanatics Strikes Back" and is available for sale via emailing "firstname.lastname@example.org".
NEW YORK — Price-matching has become a key marketing tactic for retailers from Walmart to Target Corp. to Toys ‘‘R’’ Us Inc. as they try to attract shoppers amid an uneven US recovery.

PARTIAL PRESS: "Fight The City has partnered with talented artists from around the world to create unique one of a kind custom boxing gloves.

Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) happens to fall on Saturday May 4th, alongside "Star Wars Day" this year, so folks can double-celebrate their geekery this weekend, and I think that is an awesome-cool happenstance!
Over at Giant Robot 2 on Sawtelle, FCBD celebrates with "Uglydoll Comics" with a David Horvath signing at 3pm, with the parody of "Action Comics" featuring images from "Book 1" (79 pages priced at US$7.99) with stories by James Kolchaka and Le Merde … I wonder if the "super"-plush characters (seen below) will make an appearance? They seem pretty apt to the occasion too, don't they?
From Sket-One comes "Galactic Empire" and on Monday May 6th, the 5 Color screenprint flag will be released via 1xrun.com (60"x36" - limited to 20pcs only). There is also a 80pcs edition silkscreen 19"x13" print to be had here for US$50. Let fly your alliance to the Empire, don't shy!

As it’s nearing summer time and the opening salvo of the licensed movie selling season, one big question is what about peg space for PLANES & CARS?
