KICKSTARTER: Forest Friend Fox Plush

Natural Pop has announced and launched a new Kickstarter project that's looking to raise funds to produce the Forest Friend Fox Plush. Based on Natural Pop's best selling charm - a minimalist fox - and the handmade plush version of it, the plush is being manufactured in order to create an even better fox plush that can meet demand.

The Forest Friend Fox Plush is available beginning at the $25.00 funding level. There are other rewards - including the charm - available at other funding levels.

This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by .

As I say with all Kickstarter project I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution.

Collectible Busts by Christopher Genovese

We've featured artist Christopher Genovese's work in the past (his Breaking Bad Heisenberg bust), but he has since branched out to produce a number of new sculpture busts of contemporary geek-culture icons. He's currently selling busts of Heisenberg, Steven Colbert, Darth Vader, The Dude, Joe Rogan, Larry David, Barack Obama, and Bernie Sanders via his Freakshopgallery.etsy.com shop.

The busts range in size from 1/4 scale to 1/2 scale, which means the pricing ranges from $80.00 to $275.00, depending on the character and scale.

REVIEW: Finn Balor Bleacher Creature

Bleacher Creatures have come a long way since we last reviewed their cuddly plush creations on Plastic and Plush. Currently, they produce their 10-inch tall Bleacher Creature plushies based on the following licenses – WWE, NHL, and NBA. For this review, we’ve received a Demon Finn Balor Bleacher Creature to check out.

First off, this is the first time we’re using our new 360-degree view video to show off a collectible. You can check out the Balor Bleacher Creature from all angles.

If you didn’t realize yet, Finn Balor is a WWE wrestler (or sports entertainer). He normally comes to the ring as a normal looking (unpainted) dude, but he occasionally lets the Demon come out. When that happens, he more than often shows up in the paint scheme you see here.

I can see why Bleacher Creatures features this plush in their WWE marketing. Balor’s one of the more interesting characters and the only one who’s just not a guy in a shirt. He would be a lot less interesting if it was just regular old Finn Balor minus the Demon makeup.

While kids love them – my 5-year-old son swiped this Finn Balor as soon as he saw it – the Bleacher Creatures plush line is made with collectors in mind. They’re produced with flat feet, which allows you to display your plush next to your plastic collectibles. So, you could put the Finn Balor Bleacher Creature next to the Mattel Elite Series figure. No problem.

Plus, the entire line looks a lot like the players/wrestlers they are trying to represent. That’s a challenge, especially considering these plush. It’s difficult to get a plush toy to look like a real person. But Bleacher Creatures has done it.

It appears that all aspects of each Bleacher Creature’s face are unique. They have different nose shapes, different eye styles with correct colors, various mouths. You can even check out Enzo Amore’s unique two-tone spikey hairdo.

In addition to Balor, Bleacher Creatures has a number of other WWE wrestlers in their line. There’s about 10 different characters, including The Rock and John Cena. Each plush runs $19.99. I’m of the opinion that $19.99 is a decent price for a 10-inch tall licensed plush.

Spidey-Bruv By Kosrobot

Kosrobot has released his Spidey-Bruv figure, the first of a series called Luxury Money Cartel. Spidey-Bruv is a 6 inch action figure, with 5 points of articulation, magnetic joints and some fun accessories. Hand made of soft resin, this figure has the feel of a factory made toy. It includes three accessories - Supreme Money Gun, Gangsta Chain, and Money.

It is now available at store.kosrobot.com for $35.00 plus $11.00 for worldwide shipping.

"Tired of his regular life, Spidey took to the streets to become real gangsta. As fate and hustle hard would have it, he found the Luxury Money Cartel where he became the Iron Poppa's right-hand man. He constantly gets into trouble, but in the end always gets cash and results. He likes big butts and swag life.

Spidey-Bruv’s favorite kicks are Yeezy Boost 350
and his favorite accessory is Supreme Money Gun."

The “TREPAS” Gang

Emilio Subirá's newest release is known as the "TREPAS". A special "barrel of monkeys" reinterpretation, this version features a bunch of guys in suits hanging from each other (or rather trying to climb each other).

In Spanish "trepa" is how we call that person who does whatever he has to do to get to the top, this kind of dude who walks over the others with no scruples to achieve his goals, the typical teacher's pet but grown up. So there they are, climbing for their bananas, hahaha.

The nearly 5-inch tall resin pieces are available at emiliosubira.storenvy.com for $20.00 each (a pack of 3 for $58.00).

Z The Head Resin Display Piece

Mike Strick is releasing the next in his range of art pieces inspired by cinematic imagery. To be released today (Monday October 30th 2017) at 10AM, Z The Head is inspired by the very strange 1970's movie Zardoz that's mainly remembered for a ponytailed Sean Connery in an orange mankini. The resin display piece stands 3.15 inches tall and features the giant stone head hovering over the weapons that have been vomited out of its mouth. Each piece is hand-cast, hand-painted, and are signed and numbered.

RST6 by DMS

Today, (Friday October 27th 2017) at 4PM ET, DMS will be releasing the 6th colorway of his Robotic Space Traveller. Priced at £15.99 plus shipping (about $21+) and limited to just 25 pieces, this version returns to celebrate Halloween in a pumpkin inspired orange colorway. Measuring in at 3.75 inches of polyurethane resin, the piece is textured in a distressed style, with a weathered, rust effect paint job and cute gloss black eyes, with magnetic articulation between the head and body.
