Well look what we have here, a special little interview that the guys over at Cookies N Cream got to partake in on MTV. In this short video we get a look at their mobile shop, along with info about what they are all about. Another cool part is that they feature some designer vinyl figures in the video including figures from Jesse Hernandez, David Cortes, Tristan Eaton, Jeremy Madl, and Steve Talkowski as well as a sneak peek at Argonaut Resins upcoming resin "Kings of Atlantis" release. Congrats fellas... that's how you put our little community on the map!

[Toy2R PRESS] As destiny would have it - the overwhelming response to Jason Freeny's Special Edition Skelanimal Qee - Black Version has determined that collectors and fans need a companion piece. With that Toy2R proudly presents the Glow-in-the-Dark version of Jason Freeny's Visible Chungee Qee. Strictly limited to only 1000 pieces worldwide - this Qee will drop in November - just in time for the holidays. Toy2R USA will make the Qee available for pre-order through its webstore before the end of the week - so fans can assure themselves that they will be able to get one of these cool collectibles.
The story behind La Mano Del Tiempo:
"Time stands still in the Forest of Sorrows...or does it? For all the otherworldly denizens of the forest, the constant ticking of La Mano Del Tiempo (The Hand of Time) serves as a reminder that time waits for no one and that it's impossible to escape its unrelenting grasp."
HERE. To see this piece in person, make sure you stop by Dragatomi this Saturday, October 9th for the opening of this amazing custom toy show!
First off is a 10" GID Green Mad'l, based on The Incredible Hulk... the green is so strong and very fitting for The Hulk. This is one of my favorite "Comic Stripped" customs so far. Second is a preview of the long awaited "Spiderman" and "Spiderman vs.Venom" Munnys. These classic characters were just begging for the VISEone treatment and it looks like they got it! Next up is a NYCC exclusive "X-Ray Floxy" figure, a pink version of the black one pictured above, and it comes with a black print and is limited to 100... very cool. Last but not least is a special COMIC STRIPPED version of the THINK-PINK-CELLE figure (not pictured). VISEone will also have his incredible Simpsons Labbit on display at the Patch Together booth, so make sure to stop by and check out all the awesome stuff VISEone has to offer.
