Well here is a great chance at owning an original piece of artwork from Chronic Fatigue - the creator of the comic book about a zombie rabbit named Mixy.  In order to raise some funds for his upcoming Mixy and Joe action figures (produced by Wheaty Wheat), CF is selling off some of his original comic book artwork.  These are some samples, but contact CF at skinned_bunnies@yahoo.co.uk to inquire about available pieces.

Rustboy from Android 8

Rustboy_4

Android 8 has released their first original vinyl figure - Brian Taylor's Rustboy.  Those who have seen the Rustboy animation - and if you haven't, you should - or folks who just like cool vinyl figures will both appreciate this 7-inch tall character.  Rustboy has 7 points of articulation including moveable eyeballs.  The silver finish figure is exclusive to Android 8 and is limited to a run of 850 (look for the company to have a special NY Comic Con colorway as well).  Rustboy is running $50 plus shipping.

Genshi:Toy – Broken Heart Robot

Later this year, Genshi:Toy will be releasing their first vinyl toy - Broken Heart Robot.  The figure will be 6 inches tall with a limited run of 750 pieces (there will also be 250 in a glow-in-the-dark version).  The selling price has not yet been decided, but look for this figure not to exceed $39.95.

There is also talk that a major TV network is interested in doing an animated series revolving around the backstory of the Broken Heart Robot.  Be on the lookout for Genshi:Toy's second figure - Kricky the Alien Frog.

Plush Week! at Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight

Plushweek

Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight — voted 2005’s Art Gallery of the Year in a Vapors Magazine readers poll — will forgo oil, watercolor, and acrylic for a different kind of canvas come this Valentine’s Day.

During PLUSH WEEK!, opening on February 7 and running until February 14, hundreds of one-of-a-kind stuffed creations will adorn the gallery’s walls, all handcrafted by some of the world’s most talented plush artists. “Stuffed animals are something that everyone remembers from childhood, but there’s a whole other genre of plush out there for those of us who outgrew Care Bears but still love the idea of having artful decorations relaxing on your couch or hanging on the wall,” said Jon M. Gibson, co-curator of PLUSH WEEK!, as well as last April’s wildly successful old-school videogame-themed show, I AM 8-BIT, also at Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight. “The plush artists we’ve assembled are just as gifted as today’s most popular painters, only their medium involves needles, thread, and a hell of a lot of fabric.”

MC Serch Legends Alarm Clock

Serch01

Ecko, the folks who brought us the Flava Flav and Biz Markie alarm clocks, are set to introduce the 3rd character in their Legends alarm clock line.  The latest talking alarm clock is of former 3rd Bass member - MC Serch.  The clock is available in 2 versions - the red version has 8 alarm phases, while the more limited (500 piece) black version has two extra phases.  And when I say "phase", I mean different lines that the alarm wakes you up with.
