Pinky and The Brain Custom Set


Yes. I was a 15 year old who used to come home from school and dial up Animaniacs on the old console television set. (Okay...we had more than likely ditched the console by that time) But I appreciate Pinky and The Brain as much as the next guy. So I was glad to see artist Homunculus, of Homunculus Studio, feeling similar childhood nostalgia with the creation of this Pinky and The Brain custom set. They are made with polymer clay and feature acrylic paints on a 2.5-inch and a 4-inch Kidrobot Munny. The set is currently available to purchase for $250.00 plus shipping. All of your 90's childhood nostalgia comes free of charge.

Kid Toxic “Gak” Edition by Tru Slithers


This one was released this past Friday...but I dropped the ball. It, however, is still available to purchase as of writing this. The figure is the new Kid Toxic "Gak" Edition. It pays homage to "the wacky and weird early 90s when it was cool to have a bucket of slime poured on your head". Kid Toxic is designed by Blurbleone and custom painted by Tru Slithers. The custom is limited to 4 pieces and is available at that Tru Slithers link for $60.00 each.

Mystery Minis: Disney•Pixar Finding Dory


Thirteen years is usually a long time for a company like Disney•Pixar to cash in on a successful first film like Finding Nemo. But they've going to be releasing the long awaited for sequel - Finding Dory. And since it's a Disney•Pixar film, that means there'll be lots of merchandising and toys. Hence...Funko and their Mystery Minis: Disney•Pixar Finding Dory series. The blind-boxed series will be released in June 2016 (same month as the film) and likely include all of the main players from the sure to be hit movie. Oh, how I dread being forced to go see this.


Kickstarter: Jelly the Robot Plush

Artist Selina Briggs, of The Jelly Empire, has created a Kickstarter project with the goal to get her Jelly the Robot Plush into production. She's been producing the plush by hand, and, at Cons, they've sold out as quickly as she can produce them. So the goal is mass production of these 9-inch tall by 9-inch wide robot plushies.

The Jelly the Robot Plush is available beginning at the $25.00 funding level. Of course, there are plenty of other items to entice you to back the project - stickers, a keychain, a mug, and a tote bag. The project will only be funded if at least $7,000.00 is pledged by Wednesday, June 1st 2016 at 1:01PM ET.

Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.


Kickstarter: 9DKP Trading Card Game

The 9DKP Trading Card Game is the newest Kickstarter project from ESC-Toy. The TCG (trading card game) takes place in the 9DKP universe created by Erick Scarecrow. The objective of the project was the following:

[T]o bring the fun and wacky flavor of the 9DKP universe to table top with a TCG that is light and easy to learn. TCGs can often be intimidating for payers to get invested in due to their complexity of rules, card sets, and time commitment, from playing to deck building. Our objective with 9DKP was to design a TCG that is lighter than most. We feel 9DKP is a great starting point for people who are developing an interest in TCGs, families with younger gamers, or for casual gamers looking for something a bit simpler than the current TCGs on the market.

There are three 9DKP decks: Zombies, Kats, and Survivors. The starter deck (your choice of deck) is available at the $20.00 funding level. You can pick up all three decks (Kat, Survivor, and Zombie) at the $40.00 funding level. The project will only be funded if at least $9,999 is pledged by Saturday, June 4th 2016 at 1:44PM ET.

Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.
