Runcible is a limited edition, 7" tall handmade resin figure from artist Cris Rose. He's a gentle, nature-loving robot, who has found himself in a world without humans or robots. Nature has reclaimed the planet, so he tends the plants and animals while trying to find out what happened to the family he was part of...
Each edition has something different cast into the clear head, the visual representation of what Runcible is thinking of as he has no voice. Edition A has a leaf, the most basic element of plant life.
Cris made all 5 - plus a special "Grandfather" one off custom - available for pre-order this past Sunday. The regular release will run £39.99/$74 while the "Grandfather" version will run £120.

With the presidential debates happening and the election a little over a month away, Matt Hawkins of custompapertoys.com has created a new (free) papertoy - Build-O-Bama. He wanted to show his support for Barack Obama in a "creative and positive way".
I've been thinking a lot about my work and while I love to make funny little characters I feel like it's my responsibility as an artist to speak my mind through my work every once in a while when I feel strongly about something. Obama is one of the first candidates to come along (ever) who has actually inspired me to create art!
So go ahead and download, print and cut. He's completely free!
One of the fairly new vinyl toy companies, BIC Plastics, has hit the ground running with the release of their first vinyl figure – Killa Instinct. This vinyl piece is a graffiti writer that has been designed by a street artist - Marka27. That name might sound familiar since his line of vinyl speakers – Minigods – is rather popular.
There will be a pair of parties in early October to celebrate the Killa Instinct release. They will take place at SURU (LA) on October 4th and MyPlasticHeart (NYC) on October 11th.
The figure is packaged in a window-front box (with a window panel on the top as well) with a graffiti theme. While there’s not much reading material on the box, the artwork is…well…killa. Inside, the figure is protected in a snapping dual plastic tray. The bolt cutters and figure’s head are both protected with individual plastic bags.
