Go Hero has announced that they'll be teaming up with ZICA Toys to create new 1:9 scale collectibles based on several Bluewater Productions titles. This includes: The Misadventures of Adam West; Logan's Run: Last Day; Sinbad: Rogue of Mars.
The new collectible lines will feature ZICA Toys' articulated Z-Body (recently featured in their Buck Rogers line). "The goal is to strike the best balance between the popular retro aesthetic and the modern quality and detail to deliver exciting figure designs."
1xRUN has released thei newest print. Happiness is 100yen is from Melbourne, Australia based artist Dabs Myla. This 11" x 13.5" giclee is signed and numbered by the artist. This piece was part of a series of paintings made for a show at Thinkspace Gallery in 2010 titled 'TOKYO DELUXE'.
'Happiness is 100 yen' came from the idea that in Japan there is no stereo-type of people who interact and love the Japanese pop culture of cuteness and fun! When we visited Tokyo last year we spent a lot of time in many of the 5 leveled Game centers. We saw young kids and teenage girls pump dollar after dollar into skill testing claw games to try and win a fluffy bunny, Hello Kitty alarm clock or whatever. We found it amazing that there was nearly equal amounts of middle aged business men and young adults also in mad concentration battling the skill testers for the same fluffy prizes!
Each print will be personally hand embellished, making each one unique. With a maximum edition size of 40 pieces, you can pick one up for $40.00.
Mark Nagata has dropped a teaser image for a new standard size soft vinyl figure coming from Max Toy Company. His plan is to debut this figure at Japan's Summer Wonderfest and SDCC. He's promised to reveal more photos as the release gets closer.
Emily Bee will be releasing the 3rd and last of her Tuttz customs. This one is Vici Tuttz from the "Veni, Vidi, Vici" trio (“I came, I saw, I conquered.”). The Tuttz, which is from Argonaut Resins, is hand painted by the artist.
Vici will be for sale through Emily's Etsy shop this Thursday (February 3rd 2011) at 12:00 noon PST. You can pick him up for $150.00.
Shawnimals has announced their Valentine's Day special release: Sweet & Sour Pork. The handmade plush is available only during the month of February (2011). Each one comes with a removable sauce cap and button. The whole thing is wrapped up in a take-out box. The release will coincide with the Aviator Ninja - Wednesday February 2nd 2011 at 1PM CST.
How do we qualify what a "Toy Line" is? Well, you have to have multiple releases of the same series of figures. Not exactly blind boxed, as we've covered that already. But they need to be a strong cohesive group so that you're interested in collecting ALL of them.
5. Star Wars Mimobots (Mimoco)
Mimoco really ramped up the release schedule for their Star Wars Mimobots. They've included several of the ancillary characters from both the original and "other" trilogies. This series also helps them continue to reinvent the shapes of their Mimobots.
4. IWG Starfleet Series (Rocket World)
From Star wars to Star Trek, the first licensed series of Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo figures was released by Patrick Ma. It's quite possibly the best we've seen the original trio of animals. But will this be them going out on a high note?
3. Alice in Wonderland TCFs (Tonner)
It's not often that a toy line is better than the film that inspired it...but that could be said for Tonner's Alice in Wonderland series (the Tim Burton Alice, that is). While they'll continue to launch figures in 2011, some of the characters we saw released in '10 - the Mad Hatter and the Red Queen - were some of the best Tonner figures we've seen to date.
2. Glyos System Series (Onell Design)
What can you say about Onell's Glyos line? It continues to steadily grow in size and recognition. The past year saw a number of new characters released, including the Rig and several collabs with RealxHead. And they have a virtual army of customizers involved in creating amazing one-of-a-kind pieces.
**WINNER** 1. MLB Lubies (Rocket USA)
It's tough competing with the Major League Baseball license. Rocket USA's extremely popular Lubies line features softball-sized plushies - often in the shape of an animal associated with the team/city. These are perfect for the baseball fans out there. The MLB Lubies were one of the most collectible lines of 2010.
What's this? David Horvath's demanding character - Bossy Bear - has mutated into the 5” Monster Bossy Bear. Toy2R has announced two versions of this kaiju Bossy Bear - the Classic Blue and the Roseus (or Pink) edition. Fans should be on the look out for variant versions within the assortment as one can never be sure what mood Bossy will be in.
Over the next two months LTD Tee will be re-releasing their most popular shirts in a variety of brand new, spankin fresh colorways. This week features a blue version of Crime is Money, individual shirts for Cheech & Chong and a $5 Mystery Shirt.
Andrew Bell has begun rolling out some sneak peeks of the upcoming Android Series 02 blind box line. There are plans for these to be released in early March 2011. The three that are featured here today are Hexcode by Andrew Bell (2/16 ratio), Cupcake by Gary Ham (1/16 ratio), and Greeneon by Google, Inc. (2/16 ratio).
