REVIEW: Urban Paper

Urbanpaper

If you’re into the designer toy scene, you’ve probably downloaded, printed out and assembled at least one papertoy/papercraft creation. But thanks to Matt Hawkins and his recently released 151-page book entitled Urban Paper – 25 designer toys to cut out and build…all you have to do is, well, cut out and build them. And while the title is rather self-explanatory, Matt has assembled a group of some of the biggest and best names to create papertoy templates.

Seaweed Big Muscamoot

If you combine cool, creepy and cute together you'll get the newest figure from Squibbles Ink and Rotofugi. The first of The Lake Monsters project is the Big Muscamoot figure that's designed and sculpted by the uber-talented Chris Ryniak.

This is the Seaweed version. The Fire On The Water colorway was delayed, so this has actually become the first version to be released. Look for it to hit the Rotofugi brick and mortart shop at noon on June 5th...and online later. In my opinion, this little creature is a must have (although the price has yet to be announced).

Bob Conge's newest figure is called the Mongler Panzer. The ultra limited figure (only 5 pieces) will be available from the Plaseebo web store next Wednesday - June 3rd. Each piece is hand painted, signed and numbered by Bob.

The figure is constructed of a hand cast resin Mongler head with red glass eye inserts and an internal switched color changing LED unit over a hyper detailed plastic panzer. The head turret is poseable and the tracks turn. Each Mongler Panzer measures 3" wide by 6" long by 4.5" high and are priced at $275.

Living Dead Dolls Pencil Toppers

Mezco has introduced a new line based on one of their most popular products - the Living Dead Dolls Pencil Toppers. Each topper is an accurate miniature recreation of your favorite LDD's head.

Series one contains the disembodied heads of: Sybil, Schitzo, and Sadie. Fits most common size pens and pencils (not included) and each one is individually carded. These would have FREAKED me out when I was in third grade..although they would have went well with my David Hasselhoff/Knight Rider lunchbox.

LVL 9999 Papa Sama Chocolate Edition

Papa-Sama-Chocolate-promo-2

The newest creation from Erick Scarecrow is the LVL 9999 Papa Sama Chocolate Edition - Japan Exclusive. This colorway will be limited to only 16 pieces and only available via Tomensuke.com. The figure will be released tomorrow (May 31st), so get your mouse clicking finger ready.

For more information on the background of the Papa Sama character, check out Erick's explanation:

Papa Sama is actually based on a real dog I used to have for 19 years named Mikey. He was such a good dog. He was a mixed breed Maltese, smart, strong and very tough. He didn't like other dogs, hated getting haircuts, he got along with alley cats, ate cheese and spent alot of time sleeping in my family coat closet. When he was in the closet we would go to try and play with him but he used to growl as if he wanted to be alone. Then come out when he was ready to play. His behavior was so strange. As if he was an old man trapped inside a dog body.

REVIEW: Agent 99 Tonner Character Figure

IMG_8119

Background

The 2008 film version of Get Smart is based on the spy/comedy television show from the 1960’s featuring Secret Agent 86 aka Maxwell Smart. However, the film version is packed full of big name stars: Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway, Dwayne Johnson and Alan Arkin. And in lesser roles are names like James Caan, Bill Murray and my favorite villain - the Great Khali.

Tonner Doll Co, who has the license to produce Get Smart Tonner Character Figures, has released the two main characters – Maxwell Smart (Carell) and Agent 99 (Hathaway). While we’ve previously reviewed the Smart figure, it’s now time to take a look at the Agent 99 TCF.

Packaging

The figure is packaged in the white Get Smart styled box. It features the movie logo on the lid. On the inside, the TCF is packaged in traditional Tonner style – ribbons and Styrofoam secure the piece, with a hairnet and plastic covering the exposed plastic sections.
