MadKnits, which does a 3rd Saturday release every month, will be releasing Pratt at Noon on September 20th 2014.
Pratt the Outlaw - Pratt follows no one's rules, including his own! Since the crash he has been cruising the planet on his own, making his own way and cashing in when he can---legally or not. Pratt is suited out with a wool holster and ray gun. Each monster comes individually numbered on his ray gun
Obviously modeled after a recently released blockbuster film, this 10-inch tall guardian is limited to a run of only 20 pieces. While pricing details weren't released, if it's priced similar to past 3rd Saturday releases, you're looking at around $38.00.
It's times like this that I regret my high school didn't offer up a course in Portuguese. At first blush, I was pretty sure that Kat Killer (maybe that means something different in Portuguese) was producing hipster dolls that you could take on your urban foraging escapades.
I was wrong. They've actually produced several plush dolls on licenses I'm pretty sure they don't have. But these are homage pieces to television shows, films, and musical acts. And there are plenty of original characters - such as the Old School Tattoo Guy shown above. Prices on the Kat Killer plush toys - some around two feet in length - are pretty attractive...falling right around $50.00.
MadKnits took a month off from their Third Saturday release schedule, and dropped a new plush this past weekend. Her name is Lenore and she measures 10.5" tall - to the tips of her antlers. In her paw she holds a tiny bouquet of handmade paper flowers.
Lenore - the Light-bringer. Lenore is a very elusive MadKnit. She can only be spotted in the earliest of misty dawn mornings as the sun is cresting over the horizon. It is then that she can be seen running, swift as the wind, with her antlered friends.
Lenore is a limited edition run of 12 signed and numbered plush. You can purchase them for $54.00 each.
Lana Crooks will have a number of plush collaborations available at San Diego Comic Con 2014. Gary Ham and Lana will be releasing Sylvan. The 19" x 14" handmade plush is an edition of 10 pieces with only 5 pieces available at SDCC Booth #5139. You can pick one up for $285.00.
Lana and Scott Tolleson have teamed up for the Old Beetaronomy plush. The 19" tall plush includes a handy wooden cane. The plush is limited to an edition of 5 pieces, each available at SDCC Booth #5139 for $300.00.
Finally, Lana has worked with Walter Gatus's Jungle Boy Productions to create the above pictured Kitsune plush. The 12" tall plush is a closed release with a maximum production run of 30 pieces. The first 5 pieces will be making their debut at SDCC Booth #1417 for $180.00.

To celebrate 2014 - the Year of the Horse – Mini Magellan has released the first of twelve limited edition plush toys from their book “Jade Stars: The Great Race”. The book is written by Charles Huang and Stacey Hirata and illustrated by Jerome Lu of Hyperactive Monkey. The Year of the Horse plush was designed by Jerome Lu and by Patty Variboa of Fat Rabbit Farm, and makes a great gift for anyone born in the Year of the Horse (1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014).
In the Chinese lunar calendar, a different animal represents each year in a 12-year cycle. People born under a particular year identify with that animal’s personality traits, strengths, weaknesses and compatibility with the other animals.
The Year of the Horse comes seventh in the Chinese zodiac and people born under this sign are talkative, cheerful and love being the life of the party.
Mini Magellan has provided us with the Year of the Horse plush for this review.
