Mama: A Cryptozoological Study of Maternal Behavior.

Toymaker Vickangaroo has taken to Kickstarter to raise funds to create a soft, fiber sculpture that is between 12 to 15 feet long and between 3 to 4 feet tall (made entirely of fabric and polyester-fiber filling). The funding drive for Mama: A Cryptozoological Study of Maternal Behavior will end on Tuesday October 2nd 2012 at 8:11PM ET. (It's already reached its goal)

And, as with other Kickstarter projects, there will be rewards at the different funding levels...they include screenprints and plenty of plush toys (Mama's babies).

Mr death inside

RX Doll 1

RX has announced that his “Mr death inside" resin figures have been completed. There are only 5 unique pieces available. Each Mr death is hand painted and comes with customized clothing. While RX says that there are some figures available, I wasn't able to find them on his shop. It might be best to email the artist via the above link.

3A + Real Steel + Noisy Boy

Noisy Boy

So...it's been announced that 3A Toys is going to continue producing toys from their Real Steel license (Ambush has been released and Midas was available to pre-order). I have the Ambush figure and despite a few issues with a piece not being glued in properly, the thing is amazingly detailed.

The next robot will be Noisy Boy. If you've seen the film (I've seen it about 50 times because my son is obsessed with Real Steel), you know just how complex this character will be to produce in an ultra-realistic manner. It has LEDs on its wrists. I've included a photo above from Hollywood Movies Costumes & Props that gives you a good idea of the life-sized version of Noisy Boy.

So here's the thing...if 3A can make this figure a near perfect replica of its on-screen version...Toy of the Year.
