In addition to the standard colors there will be some limited variants introduced throughout each characters run.

Rotofugi
is proud to present a new exhibit by California-based artist Attaboy in the Rotofugi Gallery.

Palace of the Brine delves into Attaboy's ongoing conflict between the guilt-ridden worker bee drones and the remorseless cephalopods for the attention of the Brine Queens. It's a world where hairy bursts of color float in the corner of your eye.

Attaboy's Palace of the Brine exhibition will showcase new paintings and drawings hovering off moldy walls, casting shadows behind them.  Attaboy's transparent spraypainted plastic works will also be shown as well as the release of the Arctic Shmee Qee figure designed by Attaboy.

Exhibit runs from June 8th through June 30th.

Opening Party: Friday, June 8, 2007

Prison Break – Michael Scofield

Hot Toys has created a 1/6 scale version of Michael Scofield from Fox's surprise hit show - Prison Break.  The sculpt is an amazing recreation of actor Wentworth Miller.  This is the prisoner version of the figure (in his prison clothes).  It's interesting that they created a figure from a relatively new television show.  Fans of the show will love this figure.  Look for it to be released in the 2nd quarter of this year.

REVIEW: The Gremlins

Img_1621

Background

One of the major publishing events of this year is the re-presentation of a long-lost jewel, Roald Dahl's The Gremlins. Purchased by Disney in the 1940s, and only published once as a book, Dark Horse is bringing it back in October and also creating new Gremlins stories.

Dark Horse has decided to launch a line of figures that revolve around The Gremlins story.  (It has nothing to do with Chris Columbus’ Gremlins films of the 80’s and 90’s)  In addition to plastic miniatures and statues, Dark Horse has produced a set of Gremlins vinyl figures.

The window-front box is fine for displaying.  The figures are packaged with ties, and are simply snapped into the plastic tray.  The box has pictures of the two figures on the sides and a little information about the book on the rear.
