Shhh, don't tell anyone, but… Gary Ham × Chris Ryniak's "Fatty Wooper Lopper" is at SDCC!

Holy surprises, Batman! Our 'man on the scene' at San Diego Comic-Con, Spanky Stokes himself, uncovered the previously announced "Fatty Wooper Looper" prototype! A Chris Ryniak sculpted rendition of the Gary Ham creation, this adorably pudgy boy must be nearing its actual soft Japanese vinyl (sofubi) release soon… Though we hear that some modifications might be made to this prototype before that begins.

Blazon Brikhaus's "Stuart/Minion" from Despicable Me custom Mega Android for SubUrban Vinyl show!

Blazon Brikhaus carefully reconstructed a Mega Android figure into the likeness of "Stuart/Minion" from the animated film Despicable Me and, based on the above picture, I'd say she was completely successful! Created for the previously announced "Mysterious Creatures" group show, I love the little touches… especially the Blazon Birkhaus logo on the front pocket. Truly beautiful work.

"Mysterious Creatures," a group custom Mega Android show, will open on July 26th, 2014 from 6-9PM local time at SubUrban Vinyl, 4 Frederick Street, Waldwick, NJ 07463.
Participating artists include: Blazon Brikhaus, Iroc Toys, Graphix Chick, Jriot, NervisWr3k, Evilos, Jason Chalker, Betso, Jfury, Carson Catlin, Jenny Wolfchild, TaskOne, Matt "Obscure" Perez, Alarment, Cat Atomic, Brutherford, and Soko Cat.

Taylored Curiosities's "Spriggledops" giveaway for the "Modified Wool" Chima Group Custom Show!

Wow, talk about cool show's to attend… While everyone has SDCC on the brain, Dan Perry of fugi.me & Taylored Curiosities are making something really special over in England: the previously announced "Modified Wool" custom show. Aside from an assortment of amazing looking pieces, they've also announced that there will be a raffle during the opening reception, giving out a huge assortment of goodies including blind boxes, resin jewellery, plush, and lots more! But Penny Taylor of Taylored Curiosities didn't stop there… She also made the above pictured "Spriggledops," her newest creature creation, and hid them around the venue! These three pieces are magnetic, so they could be hiding just about anywhere… though Taylor will be sharing photo clues on her Instagram feed. Great marketing, if you ask me!

"Modified Wool," curated by fugi.me & Taylored Curiosities, will open on Saturday, July 26th with a reception from 4-7PM local time and all pieces will remain on display until August 9th, 2014 at Raygun Comics, 26 Red Lion St., Richmond, Greater London, TW9 1RW, UK.
Participating artists include: A Little Stranger, Blue Frog, Fakir, J★RYU, Jackie Maddocks, Lisa Rae Hansen, Lunabee, Map Map, Mark Nagata, Matt Jones, MCA, Mecha Virus, Mister Lister, Okkle, Onorio, Pickled Circus, PJ Constable, Pocket Wookie, Robotic Industries, Run DMB, Scott Tolleson, Sergey Safanov, Stitches & Glue, TADO, Taylored Curiosoities, Toy Terror, Uamou, UME Toys, and Uncle Absinth.

REVEALED: Super7 × Funko's "Alien: Deep Space Mystery" ReAction Figures from SDCC!

Ever since the ReAction Figures's "Alien Deep Space Mystery" blind 'boxes' were announced, everyone has wondered what would be inside these fantastic Super7 releases at San Diego Comic-Con… Well, wonder no more! As pictured above, the egg-shaped containers seem to have "Big Chap" (the Xenomorph), "Ripley," and "Kane" cast in both completely clear plastic as well as translucent black/grey with white flecks, which I'm calling Space Splattered. But what are those figures lying down on the edge of the shot? Pictured below, it is the brand new "Chest Bursting Kane" figure, available in the same two colorways as the others! There might even be more goodies to find in those amazing eggs, so swing by Super7's SDCC Booth #4945 and grab at least one (but no more than four) at only $25 per egg.

Surprise Release! Retroband's FOUR "Heavy Metal" Action Figures for SDCC!

Aaron Moreno of Retroband has created FOUR figures from the film Heavy Metal — one of which, "Taarna," is pictured above — to be released at San Diego Comic-Con. With each 3¾-inch tall action figure being completely hand-made, cast in resin, and hand-painted, complete with backing card art by frequent collaborator Gabriel Hernandez (Worthy Enemies), we don't know how limited these will be, but they will surely sell out quickly. Completely official, these will be released by Heavy Metal's SDCC Booth #1529!

UME Toys's TMNT inspired piece for the "Modified Wool" Chima Group Custom Show!

This fantastic rendition of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle member Raphael, complete with twin sai blades and pizza box, is Rich "UME Toys" Page's contribution to the previously announced "Modified Wool" custom show. Like all pieces in the exhibit, this uses The Chima Group's "Wool" Japanese vinyl figure as the base but intricately recreates it into a one-of-a-kind piece of pop art. Simply fantastic!
