We’ve received word from DKE Toys that you should begin seeing Fafi’s Irina figure in stores within the next few weeks.  The latest vinyl toy from Necessaries Toy Foundation will be available in 2 versions.  The “Tan” - Collete - version was released a few months ago and sold out in Europe.  The “Pale” version is Irina with her white hair and purple outfit.  They should retail for around $60, which is a great price for a toy that stands at nearly 11” in height.  The Pale version is limited to 800 pieces while the Tan version is a 200 piece edition.

The following retailers will be carrying this figure:

The Artwork of Doug Boehm

Stereofriends

It’s been 10 years since I graduated from high school.  It’s always interesting to see what some of your old classmates are up to, and sites like MySpace are key to rekindling old friendships and relationships.  Well, I caught up with a really talented artist from my class – Doug Boehm

His artwork has been seen in loads of publications, and he currently has a number of prints available.  Doug’s limited edition Stereo Friends print sold out in two days.  You still can pick up some of his prints at Thumbtack Press, however they are not limited edition.  Cool, nonetheless.

I feel that a number of his pieces would make great vinyl figures.  What's your opinion?  Check out more of Doug’s work at his flickr page.

Tado’s Hero mimobot

Tado_hero_lr

Mimoco’s second mimobot in their artist series (the first was Shawnimals) is the first release from their Flying Cat crossover project.  They have teamed up with TADO to create one of the coolest mimobots so far – Hero.

Hero is a loveable but hapless rogue, desperately trying to make his way in the world as a fortune-hunting swashbuckler! He'll bring you adventure, magic, riches beyond your wildest dreams, and above all a happy heart. When HERO takes a break from being stupendous, he likes to eat sweet melon buns and do jigsaws.

The figure is limited to 500 pieces in 256MB, 512MB, 1GB and 2GB sizes.  It’s up for pre-order now, but will not be released until April 21st.

Enjin Factory recently introduced the first character in their Instant Sapien line – Big Puff Maki.  The character was produced in 3 different versions – Disco Fu (black), Makizinger Zeta (silver) and Motto-Rebel (yellow).  Disco Fu Big Puff Maki has a matte finish while the other two have more of a glossy feel.

Sean D’Anconia is the designer behind Enjin Factory and Big Puff Maki.  His background is in the pop culture, clothing design realm.  Maki is part Bruce Lee, part James Bond, and part Shaft.  He’s a kung-fu fighting, afro wearing secret agent.
