So, Bob Conge (Plaseebo) posted up these two darkened photos to his blog accompanied by the phrase "Coming Soon The Misfits". It appears that "The Misfits" name might comes from the various figures that were used to make each figure. But I guess we'll just have to wait to hear all of the details.
Patrick Fatica will be releasing 13 limited edition Dye Infused Metal Prints on Wednesday August 1st 2012 at Noon ET. Each print is a series of 20 pieces on a silver metal surface.
"They are very luminous and the finish displays a shimmery affect that is very remarkable. This print is made by infusing dyes directly into specially coated metal sheets. The metal prints take on a magical luminescence. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, the archival qualities of this unique process are unparalleled. It is also Waterproof & scratch-resistant."
They'll be available in Patrick's store at www.FaticaArsenal.com for either $35.00 or $45.00 each.

If you're not aware of the Breaking Gifs project...you should be. It's a Breaking Bad Art Project featuring prints and various other goodies. Well, they have teamed up with Vannen Watches and Tristan Eaton to produce a limited run of watches inspired by the AMC show. The result is what you see above - what I'm calling the Lavandería Brillante watch. It's a theme based on Gus's superlab laundry cover business. Several of these were given away today, but I have a hunch that Vannen might release some to the public.
Selina Briggs (The Jelly Empire) is offering up a glimpse at the Tuttz Collection that she has been working on with Argonaut Resins. In addition to the Tuttz resins, she's also showing off the new Zombie Jellybot 2.0 figures (each has an articulated head). These are slated to go up for sale on her shop on Saturday August 4th 2012 at 6:00PM ET.
The Jai & Jai Gallery has released its first exclusive art figure - Stubbs + LuLu. Produced by Pretty In Plastic, the 4.5" tall Stubbs + LuLu figures are limited to only 60 pieces worldwide (even though they look the same, there are two different sculpts). Each figure - based on Chow Chow dogs - comes packaged in a handcrafted bamboo box. They are currently available from Jai & Jai for either $235.00 or $135.00 (depending on the colorway you're looking to purchase).
Squid Kids Ink has released their Mini 10-Doh! Series 1. These 3.5" tall mini figures will remind you of playing the old NES on your parents' console TV. The series consists of 16 designs from 12 different artists.

The Loyal Subjects have released another version of Joe Ledbetter's 10" tall wooden Burger Bunny.The third colorway of four, the Frozen Burger Bunny is limited to a run of 50 pieces. Remember...this is made of wood, so the $300.00 price tag shouldn't be that surprising. And there's a separate shipping and handling charge included.
Andi Green has released the second plush from her book – Wince, Don't Feed The WorryBug. The WorryBug is the sixth plush delivered from the pages from Green's Worry Woo Monsters series of books (which currently sits at five books).
The WorryBug loves to make you worry. Why? Because worries are its favorite treat. And the more you worry… the more it will eat! It loves to push your worry button, hoping that one worry will lead to another. So to all of you worriers: DON’T FEED THE WORRYBUG or your worries will grow!
Series: Worry Woo Monsters
Manufacturer: Monsters In My Head
Artist: Andi Green
Dimensions: 10” tall (7” tall when seated)
The WorryBug has two tags. The first is the basic tag featuring The Worry Woos logo. The second tag actually doubles as a bookmark (it's thicker than a normal tag). It has a photo of the plush on the front, with an illustrated WorryBug and short bio on the back.
Even though you might not be able to tell, The WorryBug is in scale with his pal Wince. You can see him with Wince in the book image below, and they're very similar in plush form. This smaller size might also attribute to why The WorryBug runs $12.99 (other WorryWoos run $21.50).
The softball-sized WorryBug plush has big eyes, although they're probably not as large as the illustrated version - those dominate his face. The arms have been made of long pieces of yellow rope, which is a nice change in material. Other features include a stinger and wings on the back side and ears and antennae on his head. (Oh...and there's The WorryBug's single tooth)
In my opinion, The WorryBug is the cutest of the plush Worry Woo Monsters. Some of the other characters might have a leg up as illustrations, but I think the smaller size lends itself well to this specific Woo.
And I think that kids will also love The Worry Bug plush. Even though it's a collectible, the real audience of Andi Green's Wince, Don't Feed The WorryBug and the accompanying plush toys will be the little ones. And not only will they be read a great story at bedtime, but now they can play with the characters from the book.
