UME Toys as he donated one of his special hand-cast resin "Martin Longbottom" figures... in fact, this one is special edition... dubbed "Martin Bluebottom"... for obvious reasons :-) He’s not blue because he’s unhappy but couldn’t resist eating too many blueberries when Rich wasn’t looking. Bluebottom comes in one of UME’s house colors, wicked blue topped off with lighter blue details. You all have a chance to win this really cool figure... FOR FREE! A contest worth playing for... I think so! Wanna know how to win, keep reading...

we reported on the InstaCharacter design by JC Rivera, and now it appears that Scott Wetterschneider — who built the 3D digital model — has taken to trying to produce the piece himself for the duo. Pictured above is the test pull in resin of the Instagram-based figure, which we're told is cast in six parts using two colors. While still in the rough stages of self-production, I'm thrilled to see that this amazing design is moving forward!
Funko have made a hotter than Hell move: dressing up Hello Kitty in classic KISS attire! Yes, after what must've been some crazy crazy nights of discussion, we're presented with the Japanese feline sensation garbed as: Starchild (Paul Stanley, above left), The Demon (Gene Simmons, above right), Spaceman (Ace Frehley, bottom left) and Catman (Peter Criss, bottom right). These wonderful 5.5-inch vinyl figures are only $11.99 each, so go forth and buy these strange creatures of the night now… just don't ask them about their meeting with the Phantom of the Park.
JeAA has undertaken his first customization of a Munny, converting the form into one of his R.A.D.C.O.M. (Recycled And Developed COllected Materials) designs. I love how this ultra-detailed piece looks like something direct from the set of a Japanese stop-motion adaptation of some anime show; a beautifully sculpted form, with tons of seamlessly integrated accessories, the weathered look of this robot is just perfect. And the detachable power source, shown below, is a brilliant final touch. This piece was a commission and, sadly, is not for sale, but JeAA can be contacted through his Facebook page to undertake a commission of your own!
previously mentioned, there is a new BravoTV reality show entitled "Gallery Girls", which follows seven young women who dream of breaking into the cutthroat world of New York City gallery life. In the above photo are Chantal and Claudia, two of the co-owners of the End Of Century gallery and 'cast members' of the show, talking with The Sucklord. For fans of The Sucklord, you might recall that End Of Century gallery was the location of his Occupy Cybertron show and it certainly appears that at some point in this first season we'll see the preparation for and execution of his gallery exhibit. While Sucklord is not in the first episode, it does involve the opening of the gallery space and gives you background on the characters… plus, right now, it's free to watch on Amazon! So click HERE and check out the first episode for free!
Zukaty took the 8-inch Dunny design he created for the "Just In Time" themed group show — which was focused on Back to the Future related pieces — and has remade it as a series of 3-inch Dunnys. These customs reveal the time-traveling DeLorean achieving the legendary 88 miles-per-hour speed, complete with flaming tire tracks and jolts of electricity. Zukaty made three copies of this wonderful piece, though only two are going to be for sale on Wednesday, August 22, 2012 at 2PM PST over on his web shop. At $95 each, we're sure these will go rather quickly… so make sure to get there just in time!
