Trashbot Play Set and iBot G3

A little while back, we featured the in-development classic Mac-inspired toy Macinbot. Well, it's out of development and into the real world and has changed it's name to Classicbot. And that figure you might remember seeing is the Classicbot Classic.

And while we will hopefully have a more in-depth look at that figure, I wanted to take a look at some of the other in-development figures that they are showing off. For instance, pictured above is the Trashbot Play Set based on the classic Macintosh trash icon. And, below, you can see the iBot G3, base on the 1998 Bondi Blue iMac G3. Let's hope both of these come to fruition.

Andrew Bell’s Kill Kat

While the rest of the designer vinyl world sputters along, Andrew Bell is dropping this lovely Kill Kat Milk Chocolate 6-inch tall vinyl. Based off of his one-off resin sculpture from a few years back, the figure comes complete with a custom candy wrapper. Oh...and 1 in 10 pieces is actually a dark chocolate chase. And while the NYCC allotment quickly does out (yeah...duh), the regular run will eventually be released.

ThinkGeek’s Breaking Bad RV Incense Burner

When I saw the above image, I had to do a double check to make sure we somehow hadn't catapulted all the way to April 1st. It seems like ThinkGeek decided to get the jump on you April Fools with the release of their Breaking Bad RV Incense Burner. This 11-inch long ceramic recreational vehicle burns incense cones inside the door...so it looks like the guys are cooking up a fresh batch of...incense, of course. Pick one up - it'll look perfect in your parents' basement - for $29.99.

Chicken Fried Toys’ Dime Novel Legends

There are three genres of films that I will undoubtedly watch if they are on television. Combined, they take up probably 1/3 of my Plex library. And my wife hates them. They would be Kaiju, Kung-Fu, and Spaghetti Westerns. So when I randomly came across Chicken Fried Toys' Dime Novel Legends, I was shocked to see that it had already been funded on Kickstarter (and that I had not heard anything about it).

Based on archetypes from Westerns, the 1/18th scale series features characters like The Marshall, The Cow Puncher, The Man In Black, The Badlands Vigilante, and plenty of others. Then, there are build-a-figure options, with bodies, heads, weapons, and garb available. Luckily - for those slackers amongst us - Chicken Fried Toys is currently taking pre-orders via their BackerKit page.

Figures range from $28.00 to $40.00, depending on the character. The pricing might give some folks pause, given that these guys measure about 4 inches in height. But where else will you be able to get a little mustachioed bartender who can serve up your G.I. Joe guys a round of ale?

Sectaurs: Commander Waspax Reveal

Zica Toys has announced the latest figure reveal from their highly-anticipated Sectaurs: Warriors of Symbion toy line. This figure is Commander Waspax, the Evil Sectaur of The Dark Domain. These will be produced in a 4-inch tall (1/18th) scale. Still no word as to when these figures will be available to purchase. Right now, I'm assuming they will be run as a Kickstarter project, as Zica's previous series were released via the crowdfunding site.
