Since we like to help publicize the up-and-coming designers...here is the work from Rawbean. He lets us know that his I-fat plush is an homage to his beloved I-pod, while his Dogoink is a pig/dog. All of these plush dolls are sewn by Rawbean's wife.

The newest in the Artist Series of mimobots is bigby - designed by Dino Alberto. Mimoco is promising an edition of 600 of this character. As you probably know...the price of these desginer flash drive figures depends on the size of the flash drive.
McFarlane Toys were showcasing their sure to be popular line of LOST figures. The characters in Series 1 are: Locke, Jack, Charlie, Shannon, Kate and Hurley. They will also have a smaller set that revolves around members of the island who found the hatch.
We're always interested in handmade plush figures here at Plastic and Plush. Moongirl has sent us word of her work. She has a goal of making 100 plush creations...and maybe creating a forest for them to live in. If you get a chance, check out her blog...where she shows off plush toys that range from 6 feet tall to those that can fit in the palm of your hand.
Friday at Comic Con brought 2 new Pre-Orders from Sideshow Toys. Sideshow distributes several of Medicom's lines...including their Vinyl Collectible Dolls (VCDs). Two of the top Sci-Fi trilogies of all time (Star Wars and X-Men) are represented.
The TIE Pilot VCD is 8" tall and the spitting image of the character from Star Wars: A New Hope (aka Star Wars). The Wolverine VCD is based on the Marvel Comics character as opposed to the X-Men films.
Peabe will have his first solo show on August 4th at Chicago's Rotofugi. If you're in the area you'll want to come out for this special occasion. Tell 'em Plastic and Plush sent ya!
As usual, STRANGEco stocked Comic Con with a ton of exclusives. Mozzarella, from tokidoki, and Jermaine Rogers' newest figure (129 - Shadow) for Wootini were some of my favorite exclusives of the entire show. They also had the second half of Mars-1 Invisible Plan set (the first being released at SDCC '05).
OK folks...so I missed Comic Con today because I was held up in my hotel room with a really bad migraine. I would have preferred weaving my way through 300 pound Stormtroopers...
Anyway...here are some photos of various booths and people at Comic Con. If you have any fun photos...please email them to me. Enjoy!
