Toy Art Gallery has announced a new edition addition to Secret Base x Three Tides Tattoo x Toy Art Gallery's Karakasa Tattoo Man. The Green/Purple Clear edition features intricate decal work on the arms, legs and face on clear vinyl. The figure stands approximately 7.5 inches tall. It will be available this Friday (June 1st 2018) at Noon PT via TAG for $130.00.
Kasey Tararuj - aka One-Eyed Girl - will be debuting a series of Scratch 'N Sniff toys at this weekend's Five Points Fest (Brooklyn, NY). The first set - The Breakfast Bears - consists of Pancake Bear, Need More Coffee Bear, Bacon Bear, Donut Bear, Cinnabun Bear, and Waffle Bear. These will be available, with other pieces, at Booth #532.
When you touch or "scratch" the bellies of each figure, it activates the delicious and realistic scent of each food. Pancakes smell like maple syrup, bacon smells like bacon, cinnabun smells like cinnamon, etc. It's a fun way to make the pieces more interactive and who doesn't love to smell their favorite foods any time of day!? The scent will last for hundreds of scratches. To make the scent last longer, avoid hard or excessive scratching or rubbing. A gentle brush is all you need to release the scent.

Hitting the scene in 1968 and licensed to Colorforms, The Outer Space Men were a group of seven bendable action figures designed by toy inventor Mel Birnkrant. Each of the original seven figures represented beings from other planets in our solar system including Alpha 7, The Man From Mars; Astro-Nautilus, The Man From Neptune; Commander Comet, The Man From Venus; Colossus Rex, The Man From Jupiter; Electron+, The Man From Pluto; Orbitron, The Man From Uranus; and Xodiac - The Man From Saturn.
After their initial success, they faded from the public eye in 1969 after man walked on the moon. It was in 2008 that wall street executive and co-owner of The Outer Space Men, Gary Schaeffer, published the long-awaited graphic novel reintroducing a whole new generation to The Outer Space Men world. With the huge success of the graphic novel, Birnkrant and Schaeffer issued a license to the four horsemen studios (seventh kingdom, mythic legions, masters of the universe) and released a new series of action figures.
To celebrate 50 years of The Outer Space Men, Clutter Studios has produced an 8-foot tall Colossus Rex. The monster figure will be on display at Five Points Festival this weekend (June 2nd and 3rd) at Booth #924.
