Devil Head Productions looks as though they will have a special release set for Friday, May 17th. Could these be a G.I.D. edition of their newest Alavake sofubi figure, with different colored horns? Let’s hope so! When the time comes, be sure to drop by the Devil Head webstore HERE....
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.
On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
Even though the concept was taken from Japanese mecha vs kaiju, I'm not entirely sure about the mecha design at the moment but maybe they were purposely designed to look retro? I'm sure the designs will grow on me when we get to see them in action.

Pacific Rim comes out in Japan on 9th of August but looks like the rest of the world gets it on July 12th.

Kiniro Mosaic [きんいろモザイク] is an upcoming anime series based on the manga of the same name. The anime will be directed by Tensho [天衝] with animation production by Studio Gokumi [Studio五組] (A-Channel, Saki Zenkoku-hen). It's scheduled to start broadcasting from July this year.
Oomiya Shinobu is an everyday 15-year old girl who currently attends a Japanese all-girls high school. The one thing that makes her different is that while she was in middle school, she stayed in England for a short time with a host family. Now that she's back in Japan she often thinks back fondly of her time in England... when one day she receives an unexpected letter via airmail.
The letter is from the daughter of host family she stayed with while in England - a beautiful girl with blond hair and blue eyes named Alice Cartelet. The letter says that Alice is coming to visit Shinobu in Japan. The story focuses on the everyday school life of Shinobu, Alice and her rival childhood friend Kujou Karen, as well as Shinobu's friends Inokuma Youko and Komichi Aya.
See their full details on the official character page. I kinda like Alice the most out of this bunch ^^;

"Renown throughout the land for their marvellous toys, Sebastian is one half of the famous Whittler brothers. He works miniature mechanical miracles with whatever comes to hand. Creating curious characters and fantastical clockwork facies for the discerning collector. He has the sense when he works that he is breathing a little bit of his soul into each of his creations. An odd idea as they are, after all only clockwork. Toy clockwork. Not real living clockwork like himself."
The TOY MAKER was made by Doktor A for his upcoming show "Oddfellows" at Stranger Factory, alongside Chet Zar, with the show launching May 3rd. Magnificent as it is "eerie", as sometimes I wonder with the precision and splendid customs from Bruce, was he indeed a "mechanical gentleman" tooling away on the pieces? (Heh).

From the Director of PLANES, Klay Hall, “I’ve always been a huge fan of stand-up comedy. And I was kind of hoping that we’d be able to get some of those guys to come do voice work on Planes. But never in my wildest dreams did I think that we’d be able to get stand-up [...]

Coming to the UK, Silver Racer Series CARS card games … probably coming to the US? Though the names of the two games, “Mega Memo,” and “Happy Families” don’t mean much as names of card games here in the US – a UK thing? Tweet This Post
The"dollies" just LOVE to play especially if they're doing jigsaw puzzles. They love creating their own jigsaw puzzles on their "It's Raining Doll Parties Products Gallery" and are always bugging me to create a new one so they can buy it. Here's what the "dollies" and I have created for their "It's Raining Doll Parties Products Gallery" so far:
They also love creating online jigsaw puzzles at JigZone.com so they can compete with each other online and so you can enjoy solving them online as well. What's so much fun with the JigZone.com puzzles is you can change the puzzle cut for the level of challenge from easy 6 piece classic puzzles to 247 piece triangle puzzles. I personally love the 247 piece triangle puzzles as they are very challenging.
If you'd like to visit the "dollies" and Linda's online jigsaw album please click the link below:
The "dollies" had so much fun with their online puzzles they begged me to include them on their "The Dollie Storage Room" blog. So, I set-up a separate page for their puzzles. Just CLICK HERE for the "dollies" Dollie Jigsaw Puzzle Page.
To solve the puzzles just click on the play triangle in the lower left hand corner. Here's what they've created so far for you to solve online:
I hope you have fun doing the online puzzles.

Pins? Brooches? I guess it depends on how fancy you’re feeling! I’m always on the lookout for easy ways to inspire Birdie to create things: something open-ended and approachable. In this case something that is gift-able as well. Because, as much as I like macaroni necklaces, it’s a little hard to wear them regularly. This [...]
