Mixy and Joe Action Figures

Mixyjoe

Wheaty Wheat Studios is hitting the Action Figure shelves with their offerring of Mixy and JoeCF, the author of the comic - Mixy, has this to say about the comic:

Joe is a 10 year old boy, who just wanted a pet who wouldn’t get run
over and die. He chose a rather rotten looking rabbit, named Mixy.
Unfortunately for Joe, mixy wasn't exactly your normal pet rabbit... and
so the misadventure begins, in a world that has forgotten the dead once
rose from their graves, where zombie rabbits desire world domination,
and little boys crave human flesh...

Look for these around the end of this year or early next year.  I saw the prototypes at SDCC...they should be worth the wait.

REVIEW: Blythe – Rose Bud

With the Behind Blythe exhibition currently touring the United States, folks are beginning to take notice of this unique, wide-eyed doll.  Some male collectors might consider them “girlie”, but there are plenty of collectors who really enjoy the Blythe look.

With the reintroduction of the Blythe line several years ago, fans of the 1970’s doll were able to purchase an updated figure to add to their collection.  Now, those original dolls sell in the hundreds of dollars on ebay.  For those of us in the United States, we are able to purchase the neo Blythe line straight from Hasbro’s online toy store for $89.99 each.
