Resin Mini-MAD*L's are back... well, kinda!!!

Remember back almost a few years ago when Jeremy "MAD" Madl released a series of mini resin MAD*l figures... and stopped at number 10?!?! Well... he's picking up where he left off and is about to release another wave of these mini's, and we can't wait! What versions will we see? What can we expect? Time will tell... and if the last 10 that released were any indication of how these are going to do... let's just say, you best be on the ball, these sell out fast!

Aya Kakeda's absolutely adorable "Microbus: To The Yeti Mountain" edition from Tomenosuke!

The absolutely adorable artwork of Aya Kakeda has been transformed into toy form once again for the second colorway of her sofubi figure: the "Microbus." Reminiscent of a children's pull toy, this 6½-inch tall piece is massive! The little characters riding the back of the bus are all removable, doubling as finger puppets even! This second edition is an unpainted clear blue vinyl version, limited to an undisclosed number for the time being, which has been dubbed the "To The Yeti Mountain" version, will be available soon from the Tomenosuke online shop! No word on a price for this edition, but the first retailed for ¥11,500 (approx. $97) apiece.

COMING TODAY! Mondo's poster print for Tim Burton's "Big Eyes!"

These 24"×36" screen prints are hand-numbered in an edition of 225 copies, which will be a mere $45 apiece. Bearing in mind that most Mondo prints sell out within minutes, the only way you'll have a chance to snag one of these will be by following Mondo's Twitter feed, as that is where they will announce when the piece is available in their web shop today (December 19th, 2014)!

Gargamel × Мишка × Super7's "Mishka Boy" soft Japanese vinyl figure coming soon!

This version will be the first proper release of the figure by Мишка, available from Мишка L.A. (128 S. La Brea Ave., Los Angeles, California) as well as in a very small quantity online.
