Taylored Curiosities has announced the new Cherry Blossom themed custom series. Three custom Kidrobot figures, each linked with a Cherry Blossom theme, yet varied with their own personality. A little companion is with each beast and contains a small piece of rose quartz in their tummy (which aids to balance our emotions). These teeny creatures are removable (with the use of extremely tiny magnets). Completed with removable bases, hand cut and varnished (and made from an old family apple tree). The fourth installment in this series is a Cherry Blossom themed, tree stump house. This is an original sculpt. Two little creatures inhabit this dwelling, along with their tiny baby in its acorn cot (the same healing crystals and attaching magnets are used in this piece).
I just threw up a little. In similar news, you can now order this plush Deadpool Riding a Unicorn from Kidrobot for $14.99. Whoopie!
Artist Rob Schrab (you might know him for Scud: The Disposable Assassin) has set up an eBay store to sell Scud related items. So, if you were looking to pick up some rare - signed - Scud-related items, that's the place. He's also released a new shirt design over at TeePublic (that design is shown below) with prices starting around $20.00, depending on how girthy you are. Finally, you can check out the above video of his Robo Dog creation getting all excited about Easter, eggs, and chocolate. This is something I'd like to see more of. It's handmade...with a lot of cardboard and even a Gatorade cap in there underneath the paint.
