Captain-America-Dorbz-USO

Over 200 hand-painted, limited edition Funko Captain America “Dorbz” are going up for auction exclusively on eBay (that's the link for bidding) beginning on July 21st 2016, with 100% of proceeds going to the United Service Organization (USO)

Marvel, Funko and eBay for Charity are joining together to celebrate Captain America’s 75th Anniversary with a charity auction of customized figurines to support the USO’s 75th Anniversary. Through Operation: ReDorbz, over 300 artists from Marvel Entertainment, The Walt Disney Company, and Funko were invited to customize blank 18-inch Captain America “jumbo” Dorbz figures. Following a kick off as part of San Diego Comic Con (where 75 custom figures will be on display at Funko's San Diego offices), these unique pieces will be auctioned exclusively on eBay in support of the USO, a nonprofit, charitable corporation that supports US soldiers.

Tru-Tek-2

Tru:Tek has teamed up with TAN for a very special painted run of Mimi Monsters going be the name Pigumimis. Coming in at around 5.5 inches tall and featuring articulation in the neck, they've been cast in an orange vinyl, complete with metallic red, flesh, plum and black sprays inspired by classic kaiju infant, Pigumon. Limited to a run of just 5 pieces, these little guys will be going on sale in the Softoy Hobby Store at a random time this Friday, June 3rd 2016 for $140.00 each plus shipping

Also, Tru:Tek will also be offering up a one-off “Killed Kane” Gamarah via silent auction on Friday. Designed and sculpted by Co.Oc29 for his ongoing Yokai Yu line, the 8-inch tall amphibious kaiju has been cast in a green soft vinyl with a multi-layered flesh paint app, copious blood splatters, plus a chest bursting worm omake inspired by the fateful Gilbert Kane scene from Alien. The auction will run for  a 24 hour period starting 0.00am – 23.59pm this Friday, June 3rd 2016 (I think that's likely British Time) and interested parties will be required to direct message their maximum bid to Tru:Tek on Instagram (@trutek), with the highest securing the figure.

Pinky and The Brain Custom Set

Pinky-Brain

Yes. I was a 15 year old who used to come home from school and dial up Animaniacs on the old console television set. (Okay...we had more than likely ditched the console by that time) But I appreciate Pinky and The Brain as much as the next guy. So I was glad to see artist Homunculus, of Homunculus Studio, feeling similar childhood nostalgia with the creation of this Pinky and The Brain custom set. They are made with polymer clay and feature acrylic paints on a 2.5-inch and a 4-inch Kidrobot Munny. The set is currently available to purchase for $250.00 plus shipping. All of your 90's childhood nostalgia comes free of charge.

The custom is limited to 4 pieces and is available at that Tru Slithers link for $60.00 each.
