MattyCollector has dropped these photos of the first carded samples of the upcoming Count Marzo Masters of the Universe Classics figure. Who is Count Marzo? Good question...I never saw this guy before. But, apparently, he was in the 80's cartoon - although though a Count Marzo action figure was never produced. Until now.
Toy Break is back after a week hiatus with Episode 117 - Still Sick! While the last few episodes have seen a full couch, this time around it's just George and Ayleen - probably because no one wants to get sick...
Ayleen is still a bit sick, but we plow our way through some new Glyos figures, Playmakers from McFarlane, a LEGO set, and more! Help yourself to some Dayquil and join us for a Toy Break!

Today, BattleGrip.com has released the second wave of their Glyos System Buildman action figures from Onell Design. The Buildman Destroyator Mk. II is "two figures merged into one design in a clamshell with a Phase Arm, two stickers, and an illustrated backer card". There are 100 sets available, with each one priced at $25/pack (includes US shipping - foreign orders with shipping will be $30). I love this color combo.

David Foox's most recent work - entitled "Superhero Hearts" - is on its way to Switzerland for the upcoming Art Basel.
"I feel super lucky to have some work in this upcoming Art Basel 2010. Even if it is only one piece, I am still really lucky to get to show my aesthetic and my story, to countless art lovers and collectors and at such a prestigious event. Perhaps next year I will have my own show at Art Basel," says David Foox on being included in Strychnin's SCOPE Art Basel roster.
According to FOOX, "Superhero Hearts" is designed to reflect thought back on to the viewer about the state of the Universe and our relationship to it. It incorporates religious symbolism in a pop art kinda way and emphasizes the Holy Trinity and subjective outward elements. This is based upon an earlier work by David Foox called "Justice Meaning & Understanding".
