Big Bad Toy Store... it seems as though all those rumors can be put to sleep as Seth MacFarlane and Kidrobot team up to do an awesome new 3" mini-series! This 15 character series is based on FOX's hit animated series Family Guy and will most definitely be a hit amongst fans of vinyl and the cartoon alike! These are slated to drop around April... so start saving now. Who is excited for these?
3A message boards this has been confirmed with the announcement that releasing at 23:59 HK time on December 31st, Wood's "Zomb 2.0" will be dropping. Above is an image of the new sculpt... expect new fatigues and hair, and who knows maybe an accessory for the NYE release. There seems to be plenty to go around, and at $80 which includes shipping... some may buy 2 or 3, but you should get to Bambaland a few minutes before hand and start pressing that F5 key just to make sure you get one!
Vannen designer watches and their new "XL" series... well, there is no more need to speculate on the size because above is a nice comparison of the two. As you can see the new "XL" series is much bigger not only in width, but in length as well giving us larger wristed people something we can wear now! Hope that helps, and thanks to David over at Vannen for passing along the image... oh, and keep your eyes peeled for that next "XL" series drop coming mid to late January 2011 with a sweet design from the talented Luke Chueh!
Andrew Bell and DYZplastic just announced that they plan to ring in the new year... the Lunar New Year that is, with the release of a new special edition Asia exclusive Android mini figure "Cai Shen" the god of wealth! These are extremely limited, 200 pieces just for those in the states, and will be very sought after, so if you live in the Americas DYZplastic is going to hold a lottery style drawing for the chance at owning one of these! They will retail for $10, and you can enter to get one HERE, with entries closing on January 4th. If you don't end up getting one, maybe contact all your friends over in China or Taiwan, they may be able to snag one up for you!
Horrorwood just released a paper toy tribute for his friend, and all around supporter of the art scene, Ryan August! Ryan, known for his awesome 'I Want Your Skull' site and magazine, was taken from us last July in a tragic accident. To honor Ryan, Jack made 2 jumbo versions of the Skull King toy that he worked on with Ryan before he passed away. They are available for free download but in return Jack is asking for donations to Ryan's family. Head on over HERE, grab a sweet download, and donate for a truly worthy cause!
K.Olin Tribu push the limits with this awesome photo of their latest release, the solid porcelain "Potamus" designed by Frank Kozik. This hyper-realistic landscape shows of the cleanliness of the sculpt on this cool figure, and check out that smoke coming from the faux burning butt... rad! These figures are available HERE now, so go snag one up!
PHU! makes, but this custom in particular really strikes a chord in what I find aesthetically pleasing... maybe it's just that belly full of gears that is getting me all worked up :-) This custom titled "Aquanox" is a mecha Hammerhead that was completed for a private vinyl collector. It stand 6" tall and in true PHU! fashion he used all kinds of found objects to create this masterpiece including: - Bamboo sticks - Cable ties - Cotton fabric - Found objects - Gashapon acrylic spheres and - Plastic pellets. If you're unfamiliar with PHU's work, go familiarize your self now via his website HERE... great stuff man, you killed it!
