TOUMA seems like a real busy fellow these days. Not only were some new collabs announced at Design Festa 37, plus the work he's done with Bandai and Max Toy Co., but you can add Mighty Jaxx to the list of collaborators. A couple of teasers (in not the best resolution, so apologies for any artifacting in the photos) have been posted to Mighty Jaxx's Facebook page for the 7-inch-tall Ifrits, a Taipei Toy Festival 2013 release that TOUMA clearly designed. As a TOUMA fan, I have to say I love the design already.
Andy from TOYSREVIL has already mirrored the teaser image to give us a rough idea of what it might look like ... if the final piece is symmetrical. We'll hear a little more over the next month, I would guess, and get a full reveal on July 11. I'm looking forward to seeing how the figure looks in a prototype phase myself.
The Tomy Spring 2013 Pokémon Toy Sweepstakes is now available on Facebook. Log on between May 20 and June 3, submit a complete official entry at the tab found at http://a.pgtb.me/2bdZwn, and you may win one of the 76 prizes available. By submitting an entry and liking the Tomy Facebook fan page, you are automatically [...]
The attempt at the ultimate life form can now be pre-ordered! Watch out for the Chaos Control, as I can't imagine that Shadow would really like being contained very much, however First 4 Figures has made it happen! They continue their run of wonderful Sonic the Hedgehog statues with Shadow, and of course he has both a regular and exclusive version like the other pieces before it. The exclusive version lights up quite nicely!
You can see photos of both versions in the gallery, with all of the photos of the exclusive version being marked as such. You can pre-order the exclusive version here for US$229.99 which is limited to 600 pieces, or the regular version for US$214.99 which is limited to 1500 pieces. He'll stand 15.5 inches tall when he releases in the later part of this year, so be sure to make room!

I came across this photo of me from Christmas, either 1983 or 1984 (I think ’84). Castle Grayskull was obviously the big gift that year, as my huge grin shows. But then I noticed something in the back and, being the obsessed person I am, I have to know what it is. Anyone recognize this robot? [...]
