One of the most popular characters (the Cheshire Cat) from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland has been brought to vinyl life by Span of Sunset for Disney. The figure measures 8" in length and has glow-in-the-dark eyes and mouth. The 2 available versions are the Original, Glow-in-the-Dark and Black on Black cats. You can also pick up the Mickey Pants Cheshire...but it's only available at the Span of Sunset LA store.
Here's the latest figure from Pete Fowler's Monsterism Island. This version of TRWG, which I'm guessing is Welsh for something, will be available at Toy Tokyo's booth at Comic Con.
These might be my 2 favorite Qee designs to date. Yes...Hellboy and Abe Sapien - straight from the pages of Mike Mignola's Hellboy comic. They should retail around $8 a pop. Definitely worth it in my opinion.
Crazy Label Toys will be formally releasing their 2nd toy - Tamo - this coming fall. However, the mini custom show, called Take a Peek, will be held at the Taipei Toy Festival.
The figures will be 3.5" tall, have 3 different hairstyles and a rotatable head. Tamo, a toy designed by Alfredo Mejia, is based on a cute, fashionable girl born from a cloud. Tamo stands for Te Amo, which means I love you in Spanish.
Check out the Crazy Label booth (A14) at TTF06. Designs from the following artists will be displayed:
Alfredo Mejia, Doktor A., Eddie Hui, Elizabeth Berdann (blu), elio, ESP Crew, idlechimp, James Liu (veggiesomething), Lunartik, MAD, NVC Crew, PlaySkewl, psticks, Shan Michael Evans, SpookyAMD, Triclops, woolloomooloo, and more.
Play Imaginative is set to launch their "PLUS Trexi Series" in July...during Taipei Toy Festival and SDCC. The idea behind the PLUS Trexi Series is havng a designer from a western country and one from an eastern country lend their designs to the same Trexi series. For the first PLUS Trexi Series, PI has chosen Devilrobots + Tokidoki. There are a total of 12 designs in this series, with 6 designs from each designer. 1 of these designs is a mystery (or chase) figure and the series will be sold in blind assortment.
Kindly note that the mystery figures are not in the photo because they want to keep it a secret.

In celebration of the opening, FET is currently featurng 3 versions (clear, clear purple & clear orange) of Kozik's Ika Gilas figures at the low price of $78.00 each (limited stock - while supplies last).

Wheaty Wheat Studios has assembled some of the best designs from last year’s Custom MAD*L Show, as well as some new designs, in what is being referred to as the MAD*L Artist Series. Phase 1 and 2 each had 3 figures designed by MAD. This series consists of work by MAD, Sket One, Frank Kozik, Mimic, TADO and Christopher Lee.
The MAD*L Artist Series is very similar to the Phase 1 and 2 boxes. It is a windowless box with a sticker of the enclosed character on the top lid.
Well, if you collect vinyl figures, I am sure that you have seen a MAD*L before. The figures stand around 6” tall and have 1 point of articulation (the neck). The MAD*L figure is quickly becoming one of the most popular *gasp* platform toys out there. Originally modeled after MAD’s son, it allows for all types of customizations.
