Dynomight NYC has announced that there will be a Bumrush custom show, although details are not yet available. The announced artist list is impressive and we'll let you know more info as we find it out.
While I'm not really into mobile wallpaper for my cellphone...I know plenty of people are. Why else would the internet be inundated with so many ads...? MixtART is working with several artists from the designer toy arena, including Patrick Ma, Jon Burgerman and Alex Pardee to give you options other than those that come pre-loaded with your phone. I'm guessing these are compatible with my Zack Morris phone.
Following the success of the Seamour Sheep Illuminative Edition, Crazy Label and Sevensheaven have announced the release of Seamour Sheep Radioactive Edition. This version (500 pieces) features an atmospheric green LED lighting, a cool radioactivity warning sign on his side, black goggles and has a motion sensor controlled power switch. Lie him down on his side and he shuts off! Look for them to retail around $70 each.
The newest Uglydoll looks a little bit like a pig, but I don't think she has a corkscrew tail. Remember all of that talk about how Uglydolls were only for boys and they only had boy characters? Not so fast! Puglee is 100% girl. And should now be available at your favorite shop...unless your favorite shop is a supermarket...then maybe you could pick up some bread and milk. Thanks!
The light bulb-shaped platform toy Ouip's first custom show - Ouip Loves Artists - will be held at Lab and Gallery delitoys. Ouip Loves Artists will consist of customs from 25 artists from the fine art, fashion, sports, music and urban street scenes.

Doma has introduced six new plushies for collectors of the Argentinian-based designer collective. Above are the Vs. Bones and Dr. ILL. While below, we have the Vs. Skeleton and Stupid Tank (row 1) and Body Parts and Oil Barrel (row 2). Is it me, or does the Oil Barrel look a little like a Kozik piece?
Jason Freeny sent in the above Mama and Baby "Yolkel" modified 3" Egg Qee custom. It's one of the more entertaining customs that we've seen in a while. Cute and fun!
While MINDstyle had a number of vinyl pieces in their glass display cases, we were looking for Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock figures. There were only mini figures (no larger vinyl pieces), but it's still something.
And there were a number of mini figure lines from artists like Cameron Tiede, Brandt Peters, Kathie Olivas, Doktor A and MAD. One of the silliest pieces is pictured above. If you thought you had a tough time convincing the wife to let you buy a kaiju or robot figure...imagine the conversation that'll take place when you ask about a rabbit looking at bare boobs.
