Sneaky Raccoon is putting on a great custom extravaganza to celebrate 5 years of being an epic artist... and this is all going down at Kidrobot London on Friday, October 28th from 6pm-10pm! This event is open to everyone and will also include live t-shirt printing, a spooky raffle, treats, live art drawing, and the best part... 10%-100% of toy sales/money raised will be donated to the Macmillan cancer support. When the time is right... all the figures that are being created for this show will be online HERE... so don't miss out!
This latest teaser shows a new twist on the Oyabun style TK. Oyabuns have the jacket and dual swords, and this new one (titled "8 Baller") really shows this design off. At first glance we can see it has the latest addition to the Oyabun style with the addition of dual packs at the front as well as the Sageo (traditional wrapping used to attach the katana to the belt) as was first seen with the retailer exclusive Pathfinder Oyabun. We can also see the use of the Baka slicer TK head and hair style. But the thing I noticed most was the color of this latest Oyabun (well also that grey sleeve on the jacket) which looks to be a grey skin tone usually reserved for a Interloper. Hopefully that will be seen in the final production style as it's a real treat for sure. This latest TK will sure to be a classic. This latest Oyabun style TK should be released in November at bambaland
Monster Workshop news! There is a new face in town for Halloween and his name is "Boyn". This little fella can’t stop flapping his ears and bouncing about. He was found being quite a nuisance causing a clatter amongst the somber bells high up in a clock tower. He proved to be quite the handful to capture and his new owners need to be on their toes to keep up with this energetic little critter. He comes in a very limited run of only 15 pieces in this colorway, measures 7"x5.5"x4" excluding ears... oh and just like all MW stuff, he is completely hand made. If you are interested in picking one up, along with other awesome products, hit up the Monster Workshop online store HERE!
Paul over at Stitches and Glue has been keeping himself super busy and most recently he took part in Strychnin gallery's, 'Creature feature' exhibition in Berlin, with his submission 'Rube'. This amazing looking creature turned out so rad and according to Paul he even did some puppeteering for visitors on the opening night, along with Rubes co-creator, Becky Johnson. Check out the short clip of Rube before he was shipped off above... frigen cool! The show runs for another week or so and then Rube will be on his travels again to take part in the Blooom Art Festival in Cologne... gotta love traveling monsters!

Hey everyone.. how about another toy driven Kickstarter project?!?!?! That's one thing that I love to do is help spread the word about new figures... especially if they get the backing of the community and that is exactly what artist Pantelis Nikolaides is trying to do. Introducing "Butty"... he is trying to become your newest friend, but don't judge him because he has protruding belly and well defined arse... he's cute!!!
HERE to check out all the good stuff!
