Runcible is a limited edition, 7" tall handmade resin figure from artist Cris Rose. He's a gentle, nature-loving robot, who has found himself in a
world without humans or robots. Nature has reclaimed the planet, so he
tends the plants and animals while trying to find out what happened to
the family he was part of...
Each edition has something different cast into the clear head, the
visual representation of what Runcible is thinking of as he has no
voice. Edition A has a leaf, the most basic element of plant life.

Jack from Horrowood.info just released his latest papercraft - “A Bad Dream on Birch Street”. This is his first horror themed toy and if you don't know who the above character is...I feel sorry for your lack of pop culture knowledge. And if you'd like to have one of your own, you can download it from the Horrorwood website.
The kind gentleman behind Paper Foldables has sent us a photo of his latest completed (and assembled) creation - My V Friend. I'm sure that if you were alive in the 80's, you probably remember the show about visitors from another planet starring Marc Singer (aka Dar aka BeatMaster).
You can actually download this character, print him out and make you own through the Paper Foldables website. And you can also join the My V Friend Flickr page and show off your toys in action.
