With all of the artist series out there, it's interesting to see a new platform being used. This is Toy2R and Sun-Min Kim's Spider Baby Boom Artist Series. As you can see, there are a number of familiar artists who will be taking part in the series (and a few designers new to the artist series genre). No word as to when this series will be released.
ViseOne's latest addition to his Comic Stripped series comes in the form of one of Bill Watterson's characters. Hobbes, of Calvin & Hobbes fame, has been customized using a 16-inch Qee from Toy2R. Similar to his previous Comic Stripped customs, this one features Calvin & Hobbes comics underneath a painted version of Hobbes.

Toy2R has announced that this April (2012) will see the release of two Voltaire 5-inch Mini Qee Bunees. From the Deady...and Friends series, we'll see Deady Bunee and Sleezter Bunee Qees hit shelves. And yes...I do believe Sleezter is dressed up like the "gimp".
