Global Inheritance, the nonprofit instigators of conservation and activism, has teamed with the Hive Gallery for a traveling art show debuting this Saturday February 2nd (from 8PM until 12:30AM). Think Big is filled with 40 mini recycling bins custom painted by an awesome array of established and up-and coming artists. Don't take out this trash. It will be $7 at the door.
Hive Gallery 729 South Spring Street Los Angeles, CA 90014
Collectors should keep their eyes open as retailers will soon be getting Tragnark's Golem figure in stock. The figure, produced by Kaching Brands, is 10" in height and should run around $75 apiece. The above colorway will be limited to a run of 400 pieces, while the all black colorway will have a 200 piece run.
Bao and Spive from the NVC Crew have sent photos of their custom Moneygrip vinyl that was submitted to the Get a Grip Show. Their MF Doom Moneygrip puts an amazing spin on the original figure. The added hands, mask, microphone and sampler show why the NVC Crew is one of the top customizers in the game.

Look for a major update this coming weekend with LOTS of new additions
We divided the 1/6th scale* category by gender. Since we've already chosen our favorite male figure, we're now looking at the female figures. What are we looking for? A great sculpt, quality clothing and plenty of accessories.
#5. Wonder Woman TCF from Tonner
While it's not Lynda Carter, Wonder Woman is the spitting image of the classic comic book character. Would anyone pay for Lynda Carter - circa 2008 - as Wonder Woman?
#4. Ellowyne Wilde Red, White and Very Blue from Wilde Imagination
The Ellowyne Wilde line gives a stylized flair to the normal designer doll. It's the wide eyes and an oversize head that make the line stand out.
#3. Princess Leia Episode IV from Sideshow
Who doesn't remember the iconic opening scene from Star Wars? Well, Sideshow recreated the white dress wearing Leia with perfect buns...on her head.
#2. Leia as Boushh from Sideshow
Does this really count? I mean...we didn't really know that Boushh was a female until she ripped off the helmet to reveal her true self and make out with a frozen Han Solo. But the figure includes the Leia head sculpt as well as the Boushh helmet.
#1. Mary Jane Watson TCF from Tonner - Winner!!
The Mary Jane figure also won our award for best sculpt...because it looks exactly like Kirsten Dunst. In case she doesn't want to be in a Spider-Man 4...try using this figure and stop-motion. Bingo!
*And while Tonner is slightly larger than 1/6 scale (unless humans are
about 8 feet tall), we're including their products in this category. A 17/72 scale category just doesn't have the same ring to it.
From our favorite TV network - G4TV - Blair Butler and the Geek Out team covered the opening of the Under The Influence: A Tribute to Stan Lee at Gallery1988. You can catch a glimpse of several of the pieces we previewed on the site...plus a number artists who you are sure to recognize.
The Saddest Devil is on the slow boat from China. From the Devil's Headquarters, the grey colorway (pictured to the far left) will hit our shores in March or April. The other 2 versions (blurred for your protection) will be released later in 2008. They are also planning a small run - about 20 or so pieces - of a design from one of the vinyl scene's "top customizers". Keep your eyes open!
Ahhh...this brings back memories of late nights/early mornings in college at the local Waffle House. Kidrobot is releasing Kozik's Monger Farms Country Time Breakfast 5-piece set on February 28th. Mmmm...
Sideshow has released photos of the first three characters from the 1992 cult classic film Reservoir Dogs. Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen), Mr. White (Harvey Keitel) and Mr. Orange (Tim Roth) and the initial characters from the group of jewelry thieves to be revealed. Oh...and not only have they been revealed, but the Sideshow Exclusive figures are currently available for pre-order on their site.
